We wish that we could do it all again as the afternoon went so quickly.

Oh Lesley - you made us cry! That is the most beautiful piece of writing and SO exactly what we hoped for, even though we couldn't express ourselves what it was we hoped for! You have captured Bill and I so perfectly - our life and love together. My usually not overly expressive Bill was lost for words initially, and then couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was. He also said, and I wholeheartedly agree, that you have a gift. Thank you from the bottom (and top!) of our hearts for expressing in words everything we feel. Lesley, thank you again so much for this. You're a lovely, sincere and talented person and we know that we have been fortunate to secure the best marriage celebrant for our special day. Thank you so very much for our beautiful wedding service. It was perfect and we are so grateful to you.

Sarah and Brendan van Rooyen, Melbourne Vic

Thank you Lesley, you were very professional, friendly and we felt we could trust you to take care of everything!! I felt your fee was very reasonable and your assistance in getting all the legal paperwork sorted out was such a weight off our minds. I had friends who were not helped nearly as much by their celebrant regarding the NOIM & the Marriage Cert (the Births Deaths Marriages one). They couldn’t believe you had arranged all that for us!
Leanne and Ben Desmond, Yangebup WA  

Sean and I would like to thank you again for everything. [After our intimate ceremony with just two witnesses] the evening at the casino went really well, lots of happy tears from both families.

Kerri and Jonathan Gillett, Mt Nasura, WA

Planning from a distance could have been difficult.... your guidance and support during the very difficult months of planning was truly awesome. You most certainly performed “above and beyond the call of duty” with great patience and tolerance.

Mention must also be made of "Tony the Roadie", who unobtrusively but efficiently made sure that all was in place and working smoothly for the ceremony to be appreciated by the assembled guests.

I want to thank you so much for making our [35th anniversary] renewal of vows such a special, emotional and very memorable day for our whole family. It was exactly as we had envisaged. You captured all the emotions we felt, including the humour that we have between us, without taking from the seriousness of the occasion. It was wonderful!
