Secrets on the Lake Wedding

Hi Karen,

Many thanks for all you did to make our wedding ceremony so wonderful and memorable. It was certainly a great day, and all went according to plan except for the size of my ring. The ring is currently at a workshop in Brisbane being enlarged by two sizes.

All members of both families were very impressed by all aspects of the day. The reception at the Lakehouse followed by the cake event in the Restaurant went very well and left all feeling very happy and satisfied it was a day not to be missed.

Maureen and I then had a very restful, happy and reflective time at the Gold Coast.

Karen, thank you for your very professional and informative approach to all aspects of our wedding. Your very efficient and compassionate manner helped make all the planning very easy, and ensured the ceremony was very relaxed, meaningful and memorable.

Maureen and I could not have selected a better marriage celebrant.

For your information, we have already received our copy of the certificate of marriage from the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Thank you for attending to this without delay after the wedding.

Finally, I have attached a small batch of photos selected from the 6 million taken on the big day and the days that followed. I hope they don't bore you too much.

Many thanks once again. We will never forget how much you contributed to our special day and we will be thinking of you whenever we next need help with a special occasion.

Warm regards,Robert and MaureenA family wedding celebration at a gorgeous location

Wedding at Secrets on the Lake, October, 2017


Rain may have interrupted the ceremony, but did not dampen the spirits!

"Dear Karen,
.........Everyone has mentioned just how wonderful they thought the day and evening was, and even though it rained, it made our day even more special. We were quite nervous about all the little pieces coming together, but we got very lucky to have such a fantastic celebrant :). After our final meeting with you on the morning prior to the wedding, we both walked away a lot more at ease. We would have loved to have you enjoy a drink with us afterwards, but thank you so much for making our Wedding day everything we could have hoped for.

Thank you for the information, much appreciated. We will get onto the registry for a copy of the certificate and we will most definitely recommend you to as many others as we can......Have a fantastic week ahead, Jacob and Georgia." January 2017 at Half Moon Hideaway, Maleny

Bribie Island Wedding 2016

Hi Karen,
I am sorry for the delayed reply, we have been busy - catching up with work, family and friends (and getting the house back in order as we had neglected so much whilst in preparation for our day!!)
Thank you so much for being who you are – professional, organised, compassionate and sincere, and most of all, the celebrant who has made Alicia’s and my dream come true – your ceremony for the day was faultless – and we have had many positive comments from friends and family. We could not have asked for a more seamlessly executed afternoon  (albeit a bit hot in the sun!)
PS: You looked amazing on the day – perfect for our wedding
PPS: Alicia says “very sexy and glamorous celebrant, you!!”
We had some beautiful shots with our photographer, and he has captured some stunning backdrops – as soon as we get some back, we would be more than happy to forward a couple on to you for your resume!! (cheeky chuckle!)
The evening remained very humid and slightly uncomfortable, but everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the festivities – which finished with rain and a welcome cool change at around 10pm.
Again, Alicia and I would like so very much to thank you for your participation in our day – we actually watched some footage of the day this morning that our young nephew prepared for us, and it brought tears of happiness and remembrance to our eyes again!!
We both thank you for your support, guidance, suggestions, and everything else that has made our day so memorable and momentous - it will be remembered forever.
Our kindest regards.
Ian and Alicia Mercer 
(Mr &Mrs, that is!! LOL!)

Dear Karen,

Fairytales do come trueAn unbelievably fantastic and thoroughly wonderful wedding.  The wedding was even better than we could ever have imagined and everyone who attended commented on how good it was especially the ceremony.

We would very much like to thank you for agreeing to be our celebrant and for your outstanding contribution towards making it our perfect day.  The ceremony was relaxed, calm, jovial, fun and  conducted in a manner that allowed us the opportunity to actually stop, enjoy ourselves and actually remember the occasion.  Your sheer presence, confidence, cheerful and bubbly character along with your friendly and calming influence was welcomed by everyone who attended none more so than Vicki and I; we could not have asked for anything more of you or for a better celebrant.

Your knowledge and experience, attention to detail, advice and support towards the preparation of our big day was outstanding.  We very much welcomed the couple of meetings we had with you at your house prior to the wedding as it gave us the added confidence and reassurance that we did not have anything to worry about on the day as everything had been meticulously planned and again helped settle the nerves so that we could enjoy the day.

We have already highly recommended you to friends and would have no hesitation in requesting for your services again should the situation arise.  Thank you for your contribution towards making our Wedding Day perfect and the photographs before, during and after the ceremony is evidence that a great time was had by all.

Vicki and I wish you all the very best for the future and hope to see you again soon. A massive thank you for a job extremely well done!
