A few words from my amazing couples

Nicola and Jake | 15.04.23

Our incredible celebrant!Thank you Alana for your warmth and kindness throughout the whole process and throughout our ceremony. 
Nothing was too much to ask and you listened to all our ideas and executed the ceremony perfectly. 

It's like you've known us for years!

Everyone raved about Alana and I am highly recommending her to anyone looking at getting married.
If you want a personal, romantic, funny, relaxing ceremony, Alana is a must!

We had the privilege of having Alana as our celebrant on our wedding day. She made the whole process enjoyable and fun, and we always felt incredibly comfortable with Alana and her easy going personality.

We had multiple wedding guests approach us, just to say how wonderful our celebrant was and we couldn’t agree more!

Alana puts a fresh spin on modern celibacy - we asked for an easy and fun ceremony and that is EXACTLY what we got. We wish we could do it all again!

Thanks, Alana - we couldn’t recommend you any more 🥰

We highly recommend Alana!

She was incredibly attentive from the get go and we had a great connection which made the process a perfect experience.
She really was the best match for us.

Alana was also really helpful with navigating and fine tuning the vows when we were a little lost for words.
Her easy going personality and ability to have a laugh and read the room definitely helped calm the nerves on the day and made us really comfortable from start to finish during the ceremony.

Many thanks again Alana for making our day a smooth and enjoyable one, full of laughs and love.

We are pretty chuffed with ourselves with our choice of Alana as our celebrant. What a beautiful, sweet and professional lady. I can’t fault her. From the moment I messaged her right up until the wedding (and after) she answered any questions we had, helped put nerves at bay, and sorted all the formalities. All we had to do was answer a few questions and Alana whipped a script up that was perfect for our day. We wanted funny, casual and laid back and that’s exactly what she delivered. We will always sing her praises.

KATIE AND JAY | 11.11.22

I couldn’t imagine a better person to have married my new husband and I! We wanted a wedding without all the bells and whistles and Alana delivered the goods. Communication was open and honest throughout the whole process and we are so happy to have had the coolest celebrant around looking after us on the day! We had so many comments from our friends and family asking about Alana and how they could get in contact with her and we were 1000% happy to recommend her. Thank you Alana! You’re amazing!

Alana was fantastic. We eloped and wanted a very minimal and casual feel and that is exactly what she did for us. Great communication, answered all our silly questions. She really made our day more special. Couldn’t have imagined anyone better to be our celebrant. Highly recommended to anyone, big wedding or small.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have Alana marry us recently. She is someone that instantly makes you feel comfortable and reassured throughout the whole process but most importantly, whilst you’re standing in front of a crowd. Alana incorporated all of our requests into the ceremony and answered all our silly questions along the way. She was the perfect mix of professional, fun and casual, which made our day even more perfect. I have already had three friends ask for her details and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to anyone!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for being a part of our special day!
❤ We wouldn't have wanted it any other way and you played a huge part in that! The time you spent getting to know us as a couple, writing your ceremony script and tailoring it perfectly to refelct who we are was spot on! You took us through the legal process perfectly, and made it fun and easy to understand.

Eveything you promised, you delivered on and more! The his and her vow cards were a nice touch on the day and a beautiful little surprise too!

I've been to my fair share of weddings and I can honestly say I've never been blown away by the Celebrants. It was the one thing I was dreading finding for our wedding... but you were EXACTLY what we were looking for!

Professional, friendly, honest, approachable, casual and made us feel comfortable 100% of the time!

We are both so happy with how our day went and to share that with you!
Thank you again for making our special day one to remember... for all the right reasons. xx
