  • I think everyone would agree that it's so important to find the right celebrant for your special day. Margarita was truly amazing! Her communication from day dot was spot on and I have to say she's very personable and has a lovely sense of humour. The ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. Margarita, you clearly love what you do and that's truly reflected in your work xx  … Thank you

  • Hi Margarita, Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day. Will & I couldn't be happier with the ceremony that you helped create. You helped two not very (outwardly) emotive people express our love in such a beautiful way, it literally brought me to tears! Even now we recall parts of our vows to say to each other, if we're stressed or worried. It was truly the best day of our lives and we loved every minute of it! Thank you for continually working with us and helping us create personalised touches, an amazing day, and truly unforgettable memories!

  • Thank you so much Margarita, for your warm friendly approach. From the day we met you we knew we had chosen the right celebrant. You added a lovely personal touch by including both our children in the ceremony. Especially as we are two families uniting. You handled the last minute (change of best man) with a calm professional manner. Our guests have commented that it was the most emotional, happy wedding they have been to. Thank you again Margarita

  • We were so happy with all you did for our special day. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service you conducted on the day, especially with all of the adjustments we had to make with the weather. Nevertheless, our ceremony was perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing. Many said it was the most moving and romantic wedding they have ever been to. You listened to what we wanted and delivered a ceremony that had the right amount of formality along with a touch of humour, which really reflected our personalities. It was a day we will remember forever, thanks for your input and guidance. Thank you very much for being part of our special day.

  • Thank you so much for everything.  Our ceremony was everything we had hoped for and more!!  There were many last minute changes, Dad's tripping over dresses and flowers being forgotten but you handled it all so professionally.  We feel very lucky to have been married by you :) You have a wonderful warm nature that just puts people at ease.  In all of the last minute craziness leading up to a wedding, this is something that a bride and groom truly appreciate. So thank you :) We love the bound copy of our ceremony and our pen.  Thank you :)

  • Shaun and I have just returned from a fabulous honeymoon and wanted to pass on our thanks for everything you did on our wedding day. It was exactly what we wanted and we’re still reeling at how well everything fell into place.

    G & E
  • We had a small wedding at our home with just our family to help us celebrate. With a bride undergoing chemotherapy it needed to be a quiet and relaxed day and we even needed to be flexible until the last minute about whether our day would be Saturday or Sunday, due to chemo side effects!! When we set out looking for a celebrant, one of our daughters suggested we meet Margarita. Great Choice!!! Margarita was so lovely and so understanding. When our day dawned grey and rainy, Margarita arrived with her very pretty umbrella and added to the ceremony with a rainy day good luck story. Thanks Margarita for helping to make our day perfect and memorable.

  • Edith and I wish to thank you for making our wedding so very, very special. As you know we came from England to be married in Australia. This was made possible only by your help, guidance and vigilance to detail, with all the necessary documents. We were impressed, not only by your helpfulness, but by your charming personality and professional manner. Your service was just top class, and full of emotion. … and trust that you will make many more couples as happy as us.
