The perfect day
Vanessa Van De Mortel, Married on 17/02/2018
We were so lucky to have Linda marry us. She made the entire process so simple and stress free. I couldn't imagine having anyone else preform the ceremony. Linda brought some really unique ideas for the ceremony and really helped us create a really lovely occasion. Linda is so easy to chat with, warm and genuine and helped make our day perfect.

Linda was absolutely wonderful to work with. We wanted a "less traditional" ceremony including a handfasting and a penguin pebble exchange, both of which she was more than willing to accommodate. She delivered a very touching and personal ceremony and it was everything we wanted. Thank you Linda, for being a part of our day!
Danée and Chris Lambourne, Married on 20/08/2017
Linda was a perfect fit. Her compassion, genuine appreciation for our story and ability to carve out a unique ceremony to fit our special day and make it unique made for a very touching and memorable day. Not only did Linda do her due diligence to get to know our story, but she ...

Farah, Married on 21/07/2017
Linda was amazing. My partner, Shawn and I eloped, and Linda made it all possible by providing us with two beautiful and amazing witnesses. The ceremony was simple and wonderful; it was everything that we had asked for. We are extremely grateful for Linda's phenomenal words and the ceremony that she arranged for us.
We chose to use a life celebrant instead of one of the government officiants and we are so pleased that we did. The extra cost was worth every penny as our ceremony was completely customized to how we wanted it and it was beautifully written and executed. Linda performed a hand ... View more fasting for us, and also helped us plan a pebble toss at the end of the ceremony. Many of our guests told us it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had been to. It was spiritual, simple, and heartfelt, and exactly how we wanted it. Linda is very personable and a delight to work with :) It was like having a friend marry us, instead of a stranger!
