'Hi Liz, Just a short note to say thank you for the wonderful ceremony that you performed for us.  So many people commented that it was the best they had ever seen/heard. Everyone loved your golfing humour and the whole afternoon was a wonderful success thanks to the start that you gave the occasion. We thank you so much for making our wedding day a wonderful experience. With thanks Wee Val and Robbo. Mr and Mrs Robinson' May 2022  

'Dearest Liz, I am actually getting a little choked up writing this to you... We couldn't have been happier with everything you did for us on our special day - you did THE most important thing in our lives... and to do it with such empathy, humour, professionalism, warmth and love was exactly as we wished for. 

Many of our guests and family commented on what a beautiful lady you are (I was like, uh yes, you're not telling me anything I don't know!) and how lovely the ceremony was... and again, that's thanks to you! 

With all the date changes, you were always my first check. I knew in my heart that it HAD to be you. You made the day complete and so beautiful. 

If I can ever provide any type of formal testimonial for you - I would happily do so a million times over! We are so lucky to have had you as our celebrant, and as our friend. 

Even though thank you doesn't quite cut it, a million thank you's from Brad and I for what you did for and with us. Lots of love' Christina & Brad xxx Sol Gardens March 2022 (Christina is a former Wedding and Events Co-Ordinator)

We were drawn to you from the very beginning and somehow knew that you would understand what we wanted from our special ceremony and we were 100% right!  You are a lovely person, very sensitive and warm. You tuned into us immediately and helped to make the whole process smooth and easy.  You were more than professional, you were immediately a friend, listened to us and expressed it so beautifully in the words of the service.  Just about every guest said that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended! Half of them were in tears, as were we! We honestly could not have asked for more, thank you, Liz."  Nicholas & Sara April 2012

"Dear Liz, Thank you for your lovely wedding ceremony you performed at our wedding at Currumbin Beach.  We both felt relaxed when we met you and through the whole wedding process.  The ceremony was everything we could wish for and more.  You helped us express our love for each other easily on the day in a way that made us feel the love.  You certainly went beyond your celebrant duties when you sprang into action when Tony's mother fell ill and supported us through a difficult time but we came through it and Tony's mother is fine.  Your very caring, calming nature but always professional manner gave us a wonderful wedding ceremony that we will always remember.  Thank you and we highly recommend you for other couples weddings.  Enclosed is a Mother of Pearl Koru shape shell necklace which means new life, new beginnings. This is a small token of our appreciation for you."  lots of love Tony & Suzanne
