Thank you Claire for being part of the most important moment of our wedding day. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful marriage ceremony you conducted for us. Your professional, calming and caring approach from initial meeting through to our special day has meant the world to us. The style and elegant simplicity was appreciated by all who attended. You took interest in us as a couple and helped us write the ceremony which captured our thoughts and feelings making our ceremony very personal and special. Thank you for the lovely booklet you prepared, we will treasure it forever.

My husband and I planned a destination wedding in Thailand and quickly learnt that if we were to be legally married over there it would be a very complicated and lengthy process to do so . Claire was our saving grace she married us and completed all of our paper work with ease. We had a simple back yard wedding with just us and two witnesses. Claire was very willing to do what we wanted, very low key, thorough and professional. We enjoyed our wedding ceremony in Thailand knowing Claire had taken care of the legal side. We would highly recommend Claire as a celebrant to others.

Claire – thank you so much for playing such a special and integral part in our wedding.  The day was everything we dreamed it would be and more.  You helped us put into words the emotions we wanted to express and this set the tone for the whole day.  The ceremony was meaningful, heartfelt and personalised.  So many of our guests later commented on how beautiful and emotional the ceremony had been.   You made us feel at ease throughout the process, in the lead up to the wedding and on the actual day.   We found you to be extremely professional, warm and sincere. Thank you!

Camilla & Mark
