Best wedding ceremony ever thanks to Marcia!
We couldn’t have asked for a better Celebrant to marry us! We knew from the minute we first met with Marcia we wanted her to marry us and be a part of our big day! She was very flexible meeting with us before the wedding and attending and running the wedding rehearsal. she is a very gentle, loving and kind soul. She helped us with the whole process from beginning to end. You could see that she put a lot of hard work and effort into us and the ceremony and it was shown and really much appreciated! The ceremony was so smooth and just what we imagined it would be! We enjoyed how the ceremony was very personal and Marcia took the time to get to know me and my husband and incorporated our love story into the ceremony. Every guest that commented to me about the ceremony said how unique and amazing the ceremony was and they have never seen anything like it! I would highly recommend modern Celebrant and Marcia if you really want a personal and intimate wedding ceremony that you and your guests will never forget!Sent on 22/08/2018

We would not only recommend Michele at Modern Celebrant to a friend, I would recommend her to family. In fact she has become like family! Very intimate, and present during our service which meant everything to our unique situation. My husband's wife passed away, and we wanted to have our individual past life experience represented in the highest regard. Michele was just wonderful!Sent on 04/01/2018
Modern Celebrant's reply:Amanda, you and Bruce truly DO feel like family now to me too! What an immense privilege to be trusted to companion the two of you through such an important journey to being wed. You're right, your circumstance required love and attentiveness... so it was amazing to feel a wave of it come right back to you from your family and friends during the ceremony. A beautiful experience for me! Thank you!

Where do we even start! Michele by far exceeded any expectation we may have had! We didn't want a cookie cutter scripted ceremony that got printed off the internet, we wanted something personal and meaningful and that maybe left our guests knowing us and our relationship just a little bit better and Michele did just that for us! She was absolutely amazing both during, before and after our big day. From initial meet to rehersal to the day of she made sure us and our wedding party were organized and knew where and when to be, even chatted with our dj about when certain songs should be played. Not only were we so impressed with our ceremony but our friends and family were too! We actually had a family member ask if she was a friend of ours because of how personalized our ceremony was. All in all she was just perfect for us and I wouldn't second guess for second about reccomending her to anyone who is getting married!!Sent on 08/08/2017
Modern Celebrant's reply:You guys were SO MUCH FUN to 'work' with. Little Olive is a sweetie and I'm glad we found little ways to weave her presence into your ceremony. What a perfect day it was. To be with you in your family garden, surrounded by people who not only love you but who put so much effort into making your day special, was the highlight of my week. Community is more important than ever these days, and you sure have a great one!!! xo

Working with Michele was an absolutely precious experience. Our ceremony was the most sacred and important part of our wedding as we had an unconventional non-traditional experience. Our words and opportunity to proclaim our love story to our communities held great weight for my husband and I and Michele delivered beyond what we could have ever dreamt of.Sent on 17/10/2017

What can we say - it was just perfect. The tone, the verbiage, the story - it was all so well done. Marcia worked with us from start to finish and provided us with the unique ceremony we requested. We had a great story and we needed someone to tell it!Sent on 08/08/2017
Our intimate ceremony was a rousing success and everyone one of our guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was. Not a dry eye in the house!
Marcia makes you feel extremely comfortable when trying to figure out how you want your ceremony to look like. She guiding us through the entire thing, giving examples and advice - the communication through the entire process was wonderful. From the first meeting in our living room to the run-through rehearsal we were absolutely ready to shine when our moment came.
We can't recommend Marcia enough for Celebrant, she was everything we asked for and more.
Thanks again Marcia for a wonderful start for our marriage!
