Thankyou to everyone who has taken the time to comment on my services as a celebrant. It has been an absolute pleasure working with all of you. This really is one of the most rewarding occupations - I only wish I'd started earlier!

'Thankyou so much for everything you did for us around our special day. We loved working with you and couldn't have asked for a better celebrant to officiate our wedding.

We would be happy to recommend you to anyone we know who is getting married - you are a 'real' person, which is exactly what we wanted.'

'Dear Collette, Thankyou for being our marriage celebrant. You went above and beyond to help make our wedding day not only special, but memorable. From the start to finish, you were organised and kept us both informed, which all led to a stress-free day. Your organisation with drafts for our ceremony, palm cards and rehearsal, which took a lot of your time, allowed us both to be confident that the ceremony would run smoothly on the day. From the moment we met with you, we knew we had made the best choice and are glad we found you. We would highly recommend you in the future.'

You helped make the planning for our wedding and the special day perfect and just what we wanted. Thankyou!'
