Patient and Kind
Sue was professional and patient as we decided on vows for our special day. Her loving, patient energy helped make it the perfect wedding! We were coming in to the Sunshine Coast from the U.S. and she guided us through the process with ease. Thanks Sue :)Sent on 30/10/2018

Wealth of Experience and Positive Energy!
When we were choosing an officiant, it was important to us to find someone that allowed us freedom in creating vows and a ceremony which fit who we were as a couple. Sue was the perfect fit: open to our ideas as well as helpful and informative about various traditional and less common ceremony options. When meeting for the first time, she walked us through a variety of options and offered plenty of examples. Sue was very helpful in incorporating our wishes into the ceremony script, and was reliable and supportive in consistent and timely email updates and reminders. During the rehearsal and the ceremony itself, Sue was patient, upbeat, and friendly; although she works with plenty of couples, she connects to each on an individual level in celebrating their union. Overall, Sue was an extremely knowledgeable, friendly, supportive, and creative officiant in helping us create the perfect ceremony.Sent on 07/01/2019

Sue was an amazing officiant, we did a Celtic hand-fasting ceremony, and she was incredibly helpful, and enthusiastic about the idea. She helped with everything, and was available at any time if I had any questions, or wanted to confirm anything with her. She also took care of everything. Any time I asked her about one detail or another, she'd already taken care of it -- a quality that I'm sure any stressed out bride would appreciate. She made this part of my wedding not only stress-free, but a lot of fun. She's warm, personable, and easy to talk to, exactly the kind of person you want at your wedding. Cannot recommend her services enough.Sent on 03/07/2016
Susan Elizabeth Girard - Officiant's reply:This was a classic Celtic Handfasting Ceremony and I feel blessed to have been a part of your special day. It was truly mystical and magical...a powerful, timeless Ceremony.
