    Fabulous officiant who went above and beyond!!!

    Sue is fabulous!

    We are so happy we found her for our elopement. Covid-19 may have halted our original wedding plans but we decided you can't stop love and we weren't waiting any longer!!

    In steps Sue!! We found her on wedding wire and she was so responsive. From the first phone call we knew she'd be perfect to officiate our wedding. She also recommended florists and a great photographer (Carousel Studios). She did her homework and wrote a ceremony that was designed for us filled with Disney quotes!! Considering it was just us - she made us feel at ease and had an amazing gift of making it feel like the rest of the world melt away by adding humour and grace to the ceremony (even dancing with us at the end!!).

    I highly recommend her and when we look back at our special day we'll remember how lucky we were to have her be a part of it!
    Thank you Sue x

    Outstanding!!!!

    Sue was born to do what she does. She is a natural. I loved our personalized ceremony, from the moment where she lets everyone take a deep breath and take in the moment to time where she had the whole crowd laughing and crying. She brought out so many magical moments. Can’t thank her enough for giving us the perfect wedding. She is worth every penny and I will recommend her to all my friends! Thanks Sue ❤️

    Sue made my wedding the perfect day

    Outstanding human being! From start to finish she had my husband and I continuously reminding ourselves of all the amazing times we have shared in the last 8 years. The questionnaires were such a fun thing to do and read back to each other during the planning process and then Sue’s communication with us throughout the whole year, keeping us on track and checking in with us. Little reminders and then sending us the written draft. Amazing.
    Our ceremony was complimented by Every. Single. Guest as being one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have ever seen. We had the paint ritual to incorporate our 2.5 year old son and just the words she wrote for us from our questionnaires... amazing.
    110% you will have the best ceremony ever if you invite Sue to be a part of your wedding day ❤️

    Want your dream wedding too? Contact Sue :)

    I don't even know where to start, I have so many amazing things I want to say about my experience with Sue. I luckily met Sue through a friend after getting engaged. I didn't want your standard cookie cutter wedding ceremony and Sue was offering a more creative and tailored approach. I didn't really know what to expect as I had only ever experienced the standard wedding ceremony. All I knew was I wanted something different that expressed and focused on what I felt was important for my wedding. And Sue did not disappoint. She took the time to get to know us and learn what was important to us and created this beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Not only was she on point with her content during the ceremony she was also on point with her skills as a public speaker, the calls she made and in helping to run the rehearsal. As soon as she took charge of the rehearsal I breathed a sign of relief. The rehearsal ran so smoothly. Then when it started to pour rain during our ceremony she was right on it with her plastic covered pieces of paper and adapted to the situation and made it a very short ceremony. She then pulled things back together for us and we were then able to finish the rest of the ceremony inside. Through the whole process Sue was very calm and collected and I felt very well taken care of. I love what she came up with for our ceremony so much I have it printed out and will reside in my wedding memories binder to look over in the future. Since the wedding I have had multiple guests tell me how much they appreciated Sue's ceremony and that it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they have ever seen. I am so beyond happy with my experience with Sue. I can't say enough. I feel so lucky I found her.

    Wonderful, personalized ceremonies

    Sue made our ceremony and celebration so special. It was exactly what we wanted - fun, heartwarming, and beautiful. She always made us feel comfortable, helped us express ourselves, and incorporated everything we wanted into our ceremony. She did a great job of drafting a ceremony that felt unique to us, and even included a starting draft for our vows to help us elaborate on them. It was a pleasure to work with her and have her lead us through tying the knot.
