You won’t regret booking with Larisa
Larisa is a such a warm and welcoming person. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. She has been doing this for several decades and was able to give some great feedback. She was very receptive to our needs and any changes we might have needed. I wanted to incorporate Filipino traditions into our ceremony and I couldn’t remember a lot of it but she was able to successfully integrate it into our ceremony whilst explaining it well to our guests. You will not be disappointed by booking with Larisa.Sent on 26/06/2019

Larisa was a great officiant!
Larisa was wonderful to work with! Our wedding was Harry Potter themed, and Larisa was not only comfortable with the costume, but went the extra mile to help us bring our vision to life! She worked our theme into her lines, and she even modified her costume ahead of time to be a better fit. She would be a great choice for any couple's big day!Sent on 15/07/2019

Larisa was lovely to work with. She was responsive, helpful and full of good ideas. She helped us make a personalized ceremony that (we think) was tasteful and welcoming for our guests. Her services enhanced our wedding day. Highly recommended!Sent on 27/09/2018

Larisa: Extraordinary Wedding Officiant
Larisa went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony ran perfectly. I didn’t have a wedding planner so one of my concerns was that the ceremony ran how it was supposed to. It was so nice to have Larisa at our rehearsal as she was very knowledgeable of all aspects such as pace to walk, which way to face, the do’s and don’ts etc. Larisa ran through the ceremony twice at our rehearsal and I’m so thankful for that as it would have been so stressful for me (the bride) to have to coordinate the rehearsal. You truly don’t realize how much there is to know and practice until you’re going through it.Sent on 27/04/2018
As for the content and wording of the ceremony... after we met with Larisa and got to know us, she provided us with a very thorough, detailed draft and listed so many options of vows, ideas for rituals, even poems and readings. Larisa was open, honest and attentive to our needs and dislikes. It was nice to know I could make as many changes and cuts as I needed and Larisa was happy to make adjustments until the draft was exactly what we wanted.
There are so many parts to planning a wedding, it was really nice to have at least one of them be stress free. Would absolutely recommend Larisa as a wedding officiant!
