    Perfect celebrant for our wedding!

    Ceri performed our wedding ceremony in October, and we could not have chosen anyone better! Hubby and I were both feeling a little anxious about the whole thing but Ceri was so wonderful helping us put together our vows and a simple but meaningful ceremony. She made a point of calling to connect with us since we were from out of town, and making sure the ceremony was exactly to our liking.
    Ceri is a warm, calm and lovely person and I highly recommend her for a wedding celebrant!

    Ceri was beyond exceptional!

    Ceri put so much time and effort into not only getting to know us, but seeking ways to personalize our ceremony to ensure we had the best experience possible. She made our day literal perfection and ensured our vows etc were magical. I can not say enough about how beautiful and thoughtful the ceremony she created for us was. It was utter perfection.

    Oceanside Celebrant Services's reply:

    Desja and Ryan - it was my complete joy to be your celebrant. My heart was warmed by all the love shared between the two of you and your family. Every happiness in the future! Thank you for your kind review.

    Better than we could have ever imagined!

    We absolutely adore Ceri. Her sweet and silly personality made us feel so comfortable right from the start. Neither of us knew exactly what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony, so Ceri really helped us to navigate that and create something truly beautiful. Helping to create our ceremony was actually a lot of fun. We each individually filled in a questionnaire sent to us by Ceri, and she used our answers to help build our ceremony from scratch. It was such a lovely surprise when she emailed us our first rough draft on Valentine's Day and we got to see what we had said about each other in the questionnaire. She was so great about changing bits and pieces of it as we went along making sure it felt true and authentic to us. We have had so many compliments on how customized our ceremony was. You can really tell that alot of time and energy went into it! She had us all smiling, laughing and crying (even our photographer shed some tears).
    Thank you so much Ceri! It was a pleasure working with you.

    Ceri was the best decision that we made! We wanted to have a very unique and personalized wedding ceremony that spoke of our love story and how we came to be. Ceri made it her mission to make sure that our story was best said and catered to exactly what we wanted. When we had our first in person meeting we were confident and knew that it was the best choice. She offered unlimited support to make sure she catered to exactly how we wanted it to be and we also had a couple unique wedding rituals that added that extra special touch to our special day. I can't say enough about how happy I am with the work we did with Ceri. She truly captured our true love story and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants something more unique, personal and special than just a normal ceremony. Many many thanks♡

    Ceri was absolutely wonderful! She was incredibly helpful, and made our day perfect. We wanted a very quiet, private elopement in the woods, and it was amazing. Ceri worked with us to craft our personalized vows and our ceremony, and it was wonderful, comfortable and meaningful. We flew out to Vancouver Island for our elopement, and she thought of everything to make it happen the way we wanted to. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

    Professional and Exceptional! 5⭐️ All the way!

    I have called Ceri 5days prior the wedding, we just thought, me & my husband to be get married before the 2021 ends instead of 2022(original wedding date).
    Ceri is very understanding and enthusiastic even on a short notice. We communicated thru email and and FaceTime. The wedding date weather forecast is freezing cold with possible rain or snow, she advise us that she has flexibility if we will to change the date last minute. Our wedding is just perfect, thank you to Ceri’s kindness and skills to pull a wedding in such short notice. She is the wedding celebrant you want to have on your special & memorable day. Very easy to work with and reachable at any time. I’ll put her number and email address below for anyone looking for a perfect celebrant services:

    A Wonderful Experience!

    I would definitely recommend Ceri for officiant services, & especially coming from a nervous bride (such as myself). She took such wonderful care of the ceremony & that put me at great ease knowing I could trust her.

    Words can truly not express the gratitude we have for Ceri in making our day so special.

    Her calm approach, open-minded planning, & delightful personality helped us create a wedding ceremony we will never forget.

    KD thank you so much for your kind review. It was my great pleasure to meet you both, to co-create your wedding ceremony, and to be your wedding celebrant. My heart is warmed as I remember your wedding day. We were so lucky with the weather too! Every possible happiness on your future together.

    Ceri truly exceeded our expectations!!

    Ceri was a wonderful celebrant. She went above and beyond to plan a last minute wedding ceremony for us due to an ailing family member. Even though we had some hurdles in the planning process of our wedding, Ceri was very flexible and it was evident that she wanted us to have the wedding we had dreamed of. She truly is a genuine and thoughtful person and we would highly recommend Ceri in any celebration!!

    Oceanside Celebrant Services's reply:

    Janna (and Kevin) thank you so much for this wonderful review! I am so very very happy that your ceremony touched your heart, and your day was as wonderful as you hoped. Every happiness in your future together.

    Better than we imagined

    Our experience with Ceri was fantastic. She worked with us to make the process seamless and really put together a very memorable ceremony. Several guests commented that it was the best and most thoughtful ceremony they had been to and that they appreciated the personal touch in all parts of the ceremony. Ceri is kind, funny, thoughtful, and just an overall great person and we highly recommend her.
