Can't say enough about Circles and Ceremonies
Due to COVID-19, we had to make the difficult decision to change our wedding celebration. We chose to do a small, intimate gathering and include everyone else via live stream - with little time to do so.
Joanne was so positive and encouraging right from the start, despite the time constraints that we put upon her.
Within a week, she created a beautiful and personal ceremony, just for us. She sent us a detailed questionnaire that allowed us to really reflect as a couple on what we wanted our ceremony to look like.
Joanne even suggested aspects of the ceremony that we would never have considered, and made it that much more special.
Although we were unable to meet in person until the wedding rehearsal, Joanne's communication was impeccable - making sure that we were comfortable with our ceremony and so understanding when it came to our changes and last minute additions.
She was incredible to work with from the start and I will be recommending her services to everyone in the future.Sent on 30/04/2020

In short, Joanne was perfect. As our wedding officiant, she was the perfect balance of personal and professional. In our first meeting she provided us with many ideas about how wedding ceremonies might be conducted. We were able to make meaningful decisions about what we wanted that aligned with our values. Although weddings can be stressful we knew the ceremony would go off beautifully with Joanne in charge. I highly recommend her - she took the time to get to know us in order to curate a beautiful and personal wedding ceremony, just for us. Thank you again Joanne!
