Joe & Zoe - I had the pleasure of working with Paula as our celebrant for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the very beginning, Paula took the time to truly get to know us as a couple and it made all the difference in the world. Our wedding ceremony was nothing short of magical. Paula's ability to craft a ceremony that was both exciting and deeply personal was truly impressive. She has a way of making us feel like she had known us for years, and it made the whole ceremony feel incredibly special. I can't recommend Paula highly enough. If you're looking for a celebrant who will go above and beyond to make your wedding day unforgettable, look no further. Paula is the best in the business, and we are so grateful to have had her as part of our special day.

Martin & Elisa - From the moment we got in touch with Paula, the process of organising our celebrant-led wedding was an easy & enjoyable one. Paula met us on several occasions, both in-person & virtually to go through what we hoped the ceremony would look and feel like and to offer suggestions from her wealth of experience. On the day, Paula officiated our wedding even better than we hoped for. She incorporated all of the things that we had dreamed of and the highlight was a hand-tying activity between my wife & I, that Paula suggested. We had ordered two beautiful, coloured bands that were then tied in our ceremony as we exchanged our rings. To top it off, after the ceremony, Paula presented us with a box full of items from the ceremony that we will be able to look back on for years to come. We would recommend Paula whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a celebrant to lead their ceremony.

Kate & Joe - Paula married my partner Joe and I at the end of May, and I cannot sing her praises enough. The care, attention and time she put into making our ceremony so uniquely ‘us’ was appreciated by every guest, who have raved about her service since the big day. I can’t recommend her enough, the celebrant style takes away the awkwardness and formality of a registrar. She was able to share our story with our nearest and dearest, and made sure to get it right which was so important to us both. I loved the meetings and templates she shared with us to help us sort our vows, and she was able to totally put us at ease leading up to and on the day itself. You should absolutely book her! She’s the best x x

Karl & Joedy - Well what can we say….Paula was top class from start to finish! From the initial meeting to the wedding ceremony itself, Paula was supportive, helpful, caring, humorous and willing to go that extra mile to make sure everything went to plan. Paula helped us immensely for the ceremony, provided ideas and guidance all the way, with a friendly kick up the backside when we needed it too! Without a doubt, you get more than just a celebrant, Paula will help where she can, helps remove some of the stress and you’ll have the benefit of a new friend too! We can't recommend Paula enough, she really helped make our day special. If we could add more stars, we would!!

Lianne & Victoria - Absolutely brilliant service. We were amazed at the amount of research and effort that Paula want to, to make our ceremony so personal and special. A day that we will never forget. The attention to detail was impeccable and it was so lovely to finally meet Paula on our wedding day. We feel like we've known her for years and would highly recommend for any service.
