Testimonials Right Match Civil Celebrant

"Thank you, John, for creating and conducting a truly beautiful wedding ceremony for us. We received a number of compliments from family and friends who enjoyed the unique and culturally diverse traditions that you helped us incorporate into our ceremony. It really was a ceremony that was personal and reflective of who we are as individuals and as a couple. Your professionalism and genuineness from the outset made the entire process enjoyable and special for us. Your friendly and amiable nature also put us at ease on the day and thankfully kept the nerves at bay. We sincerely thank you for all of your efforts in ensuring the ceremony was special and ran smoothly. We hoped it would be a perfect day, and it was."

"John was confident and relaxed from the first time we met him. He made the process of choosing vows, readings and music a personalised and relaxed experience. He was full of excellent advice, yet allowed us the space to create our own special day. John spoke wonderfully on the day, and gave everyone a sense of the significance of the occasion, yet maintained a warm and celebratory environment. His thoroughness in the weeks leading up to the day, including rehearsals and coaching, ensured that everything went smoothly in the moment. We would highly recommend John to any future bridal couples. He was an integral part of the wonderful day that we enjoyed."

"We could not speak more highly of John as a marriage celebrant and would like to express our sincere thanks to him for conducting a beautiful and elegant wedding ceremony. John made us feel at ease from the first meeting and throughout the planning process, he was extremely professional, personable and patient. His public speaking skills were also highly polished. Together we planned a ceremony that was extremely personal, went exactly as planned and was very warmly received by all our family and friends. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone."

"Thank you, John, for making our wedding ceremony so amazing and unforgettable. At all times throughout since we first met with you, you have been incredibly professional, and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We had some fantastic feedback about the ceremony, and everyone was very impressed by how highly personal it was. Thank you very much for all of your time and help, and for your wishes in the card. It was a true pleasure to have worked with you on this special day, and we will be recommending you to friends and colleagues."

"Finding the perfect wedding celebrant was extremely important to us. We wanted someone who could guide us through the process, offering their opinions but also allowing us to have input in to our wedding ceremony.
I knew John would be our "right match" from our first meeting! He was very professional and personable. He explained all the legal requirements so we were clear in our mind about what was expected. His attention to detail is second to none! He also provided us with a lot of printed information that was very informative and helpful. John was also very flexible with arranging meeting times and even drove all the way over to the other side of town to our home so we wouldn't need to arrange a baby sitter! I think the thing that impressed me most about John on our wedding day, was that he had a strong personality without being dominating and stealing the show! He was able to talk through minor disruptions and stayed focused on keeping the ceremony flowing. We had many compliments about how intimate and elegant our ceremony was and we owe that all to John. He created the perfect ceremony that reflected who Rod and I are. I would recommend him to anyone."

"It was an absolute pleasure working with John as our marriage celebrant. We had a fairly clear concept from the start of the planning process of the type of ceremony we wanted and, rather than insisting we follow a set formula, John was entirely supportive of our approach and tailored his advice to help us realise that vision. The end result was a very simple yet elegant ceremony, delivered with all of the professionalism that John brought to each of his meetings with us.
While John provided excellent reference material to help us plan our ceremony, it was his ability to tune into the way we wanted to approach the whole process that made it such a pleasurable experience.
We would have no hesitation in recommending John to others looking for a professional celebrant focused on supporting the engaged couples through the marriage process."

“Simon and I just wanted to send you a very big THANK YOU for the wonderful job you did for our wedding. We have received so many compliments and positive feedback about the ceremony. Our friends and family have said they were so impressed with how personal the ceremony was, and that you performed in such a sincere and professional manner that made everyone feel at ease and in the moment. When Simon and I watched our wedding video, we couldn't have agreed with their comments more! Thank you for doing such a beautiful job. You were such a great help when planning the ceremony and all its fine details, suggesting readings, and helping us put in to words the feelings Simon and I have for each other. Thank you for making the trip to the Dandenongs for the wedding rehearsal, and thank you for the pep talk the day before the wedding!!! We are so pleased that our wedding ceremony was everything we had dreamed of, and that it represented us: our past, present and future..."
