Ness and Gareth

OMG – We enjoyed our Ceremony very much. We’re so glad we picked you. Despite our only contact prior to our wedding being by emails from abroad you made us feel that we had known you for ages. Thanks for making us feel so relaxed. We chose to Elope for exactly that reason and we couldn’t have asked for a better Celebrant . Your warm and caring nature and sense of fun made it all the more special. We have witnessed many ceremonies with Celebrants who did not have your flair. Its evident you love what you do. It was your website and testimonials that led us to choose you.


Lori and Ian

Jools, you did an amazing job. From start to finish you ran the ceremony without dominating it, leaving us to enjoy our day. You gave us exactly the ceremony we wanted and were so very professional. Your experience shows…. Thank you so much for being our Celebrant


Louise and Justin

Lorna & Harley

Jools you made the our wedding so special with your warmth, humour and vitality. In the build up, you took away all hassle and stress with your support and guidance, and on the day the ceremony itself was beautiful. If anyone is getting married in this stunning part of New Zealand I would not hesitate in recommending you. A huge thank you for making our day one that will be remembered for a very, very long time.


Janet & Peter

Harley and I would like to thank you for your helping to make our day so special and run so smoothly. We thought your service was very professional. We really appreciate how you made us feel calm and at ease with your warm, friendly manner. You adjusted perfectly to suit our ceremony and we thought you were so fun and joyful. Harley and I also appreciated that with your experience, you had every detail covered. Please use us as a reference should you need to at any time. Once again…..THANK YOU SO MUCH!


Amber & Michael

Every time we talk about our wedding we always mention how special you made it for us..…There was not one second that we didn’t feel like we were with family, (probably why I cried when you mentioned absent family – You were so beautiful and we thank you so very, very much for making us feel special). The ceremony was just what we wanted – simple, romantic, special and we had the most beautiful, well spoken, emotional celebrant anyone could ever wish for.


Irina & Mitch, Rippon Vineyard Ceremony.

Kayla & Byron. April

We could not fault your service you were just wonderful. What we loved:- Your passion. You made us feel like we could ask you anything and it was no trouble. Your fast replies to all emails during wedding planing. Your guidance throughout the whole process.Your ability to provide advice as an outside party. Your knowledge of the process, the venue, sound system and everything else that goes a long with weddings. Your humor was a great ice breaker and made us feel at ease. Our ceremony joyful and romantic. Your ceremony style was so friendly, inclusive and enjoyable for our guests.


Minty & Rob

You made our day go so smoothly. We had many comments to say that it was a beautiful ceremony. We loved your professionalism, sense of humour and may I add, – you looked stunning in your outfit! You did not dominate the ceremony as I have seen at other weddings. We will be highly recommending you to others”
