We can’t say enough amazing things about Yvonne! She was really a perfect match as the celebrant for our wedding. From the very start she was incredibly helpful and open, she took the time to meet and get to know us, and encouraged us to make the ceremony truly ours. She listened closely when we told her our story and retold it beautifully for our guests. She went above and beyond to answer our questions, put us at ease, and make our ceremony memorable and meaningful for ourselves and our guests.

What can we say about Yvonne, she is just wow. From the first day we met Yvonne she made us feel so comfortable. Our ceremony is one we will never forget because of Yvonne and her way with words. 100 out of 100. An incredible woman.

Yvonne was a breath of fresh air from the get-go. She took two awkward humans and made us comfortable in front of a crowd – a feat in itself! She listened to us in our first meeting and wove 11 years of our story into a beautiful ceremony that had us and the guests feeling every emotion going. She made suggestions that we’d never have thought of that just added more depth to the day and were my favourite parts of the ceremony itself. I love that one of my core memories of my ceremony is the laughter that she helped bring out from our friends and family.

Honestly I cannot praise her enough – through such brief meetings we felt as if we’d known her a long time and she us. She has a unique ability to find and forge a connection. I have to say as someone that was just looking to get a quick and easy ceremony over and done with, she helped create memories that we’ll cherish forever and made us super comfortable doing so. I felt ready and safe knowing she was going to steer us through the ceremony – she checked in on us both in advance and made sure we were ready. Yvonne has a gift for this – anyone that gets to work with her will see that.

From the moment we met met Yvonne, we knew she was the right fit. She made us feel at ease and was warm, calm and fun! She met us both on the day beforehand and had a chat which was a lovely touch and we had a beautiful ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. Naturally, we were both nervous but honestly, she just put us both at ease and it was a fun and happy ceremony were we all shared a few laughs. We had so many people asking about her afterwards and have recommended her to our friends. She absolutely made our day and made it very special. Thank you Yvonne! Tim and Han xx
