Couple Love

No couple was injured in the gathering of the following reviews….I promise!

THANK YOU for everything you did – you are honestly amazing and made our ceremony everything we hoped it to be. The whole process from the moment we started working together was so seamless and easy. I had at least 10 people ask me if you were a family friend because you seemed like you had known us our whole lives, and I think that is just so great!! The ceremony was so fun and certainly started the good vibes which led to the best night of our lives! It was the biggest party ever.’

‘Before we started planning our wedding, a Celebrant wasn’t something we thought much of as you get used to just “sitting through ceremonies”. However, we stumbled across Cath and that has changed our view and standards on how weddings should be. From our first meeting, Cath made us feel so relaxed and provided so much insight and feedback on what we do (and don’t) need to do when planning our Ceremony.

Cath not only learns about you, but your relationship with each other and tailors your ceremony to you. Most of our guests either thought she was a friend, or that we had wrote her ceremony for her due to it being so “us”. Not only did we have fun throughout our whole ceremony, our guests did as well and let me tell you how much of a difference it makes.

Your Wedding Ceremony shouldn’t just be a “Formality” but something that kick starts the wedding and leaves you on a high for the rest of the day. Tell any other South Coast Vendor you have booked Cath from Coastal Ceremonies, and you’ll get the same excitement from everyone of them as well!’

‘Cathryn was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She made the whole process of getting married so relaxing for us and helped us every step of the way. We postponed our wedding due to COVID, and even then Cath was there for us during our emotional roller-coaster, and was nothing but supportive.

The ceremony itself was my husband and I all over! It was emotional, funny and full of surprises. We loved the service Cathryn provided us and it was a huge hit for our guests! Our guests continued to rave about how great Cath was and the ceremony that was put together.

Truly, truly amazing – I could not recommend her enough! Thank you Cath for helping our dream wedding come true!’

We couldn’t be happier with Cath from Coastal Ceremonies. If you are after someone who is experienced, professional, but so much fun and enthusiastic Cath should be your #1 choice. She made the whole process easy, from planning out the ceremony to exactly how we wanted to making writing our vows super easy, Cath was there to help.
Cath you did an absolutely amazing job and we had so many comments how fun and personalised the ceremony was. We can’t thankyou enough for making our day so special!!’💕💕

We could not have been happier to have had Cath as our celebrant for our Wollongong wedding in December 2021. Due to COVID we had to change our wedding date and we made sure that we could swap it to a date she was free because we couldn’t imagine not having her marry us.
From the very first meeting it felt like we knew her and this carried on for the 12 months of lead up to the wedding. She organised all of the important documents and legal side of things so we didn’t have any stress. The time and love she puts into her couples really shows on the day of the wedding when everything is PERFECT.

Thank you, Cath. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. (An opinion confirmed by many of our guests!) Finding you early on in the planning was like finding the heart of the wedding and you brought all of our ideas to life with such flexibility and enthusiasm. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Glenn and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make our wedding dreams come true on Saturday. The ceremony was everything we could have asked for and more. A perfect balance of sentiment and humour that was tailored for us. We received lots of compliments from our guests about how awesome you were. It makes me so happy that our friends grabbed your card straight after the ceremony.

Your kind and laidback approach calmed our nerves and we couldn’t help but feel comfortable in your presence. Thank you for the tireless work you put into our ceremony and the last minute running around for things like confetti did not go unnoticed. To say you go above and beyond for your couples is putting it lightly. Knowing everything was being triple checked by you really took a huge weight off my shoulders that morning. We appreciate you so much. THANK YOU !’

‘Cathryn was outstanding! We had so many guests at our wedding assume she had known us for years! She set the tone for the ceremony and that tone continued through the night and it was due to her professionalism and ability to create a ceremony that reflected my partner and I. It was so important having Cathryn part of our day and the impact she had lasted for the entire event. We could not recommend her highly enough!

We had Cath do our ceremony and she was amazing! She did exactly what we wanted. Something not too long. Something with a bit a bit of a story and something that was ‘us’. Not only did she just do the ceremony but she had so much to do with the behind the scenes to make the whole day run smoothly as possible.

I‘ve also been to other weddings that Cath has done and every single one has been awesome! We can’t thank her enough for being apart of making our day perfect.’

‘Cath was fantastic! From our initial meeting at the South Coast Wedding Fair we were set on booking Cath for our wedding. All the information that we needed in the lead up to the day was communicated clearly and efficiently. I loved that we had the opportunity to have a coffee catch up to go over the ceremony plan and allow Cath to get to know us as a couple, it meant that our ceremony became imitate and personalised.

The day before the wedding Cath was a breath of fresh air. I (bride) was stressed and nervous and Cath was the total opposite. She was calm, reassuring and direct. We had fun during the ceremony rehearsal; however, there was also a perfect degree of seriousness, in that everyone (boys in particular) knew exactly where they needed to be and what the wedding day would entail. She listened to all of our requests and nothing seemed to be a bother.

On the wedding day, again, Cath was excellent. She was punctual, coordinated and ensured that everything that we had discussed and practiced the day before went exactly to plan. The ceremony was perfect, we honestly couldn’t have been happier.

Cath was quick to file the necessary paperwork and we received our official marriage certificate within two weeks of our wedding.

A sincere thank you to Cath for all of her work, she was a big part of what made our day so special. We received so many compliments in regards to the ceremony, so a sincere thank you for all your work.

The whole say was perfect leading up to our ceremony and a huge storm blew in about 30 minutes prior. If I didn’t have Cath there, I actually don’t know what would have happened. She organised everyone, organised the marquee and made sure it was still going to be as beautiful as I wanted it to be. She made everything easy and I have had so many people comment on her, saying how smooth the day went solely because of her! Cath, you are amazing at what you do. You made our ceremony better than I could’ve ever imagined it to be (storm and all). I couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you for being such a huge and perfect part of our special day.

Cath spent hours with us including our children to put together the most beautiful heart felt ceremony you could ever imagine! Not only that, she helped us come up with ideas to decorate the tree we got married under and even hand made the greenery for our tree and our signing table. It was gorgeous! Cath made our day go off without a hitch. She was happy to help us with any queries or worries we had during the planning process and being such a stressful time, she put our minds at ease time and time again. When Cath married us she married us with love. I would not hesitate in recommending Cath as a Celebrant.’
