We could not have asked for a better Celebrant than Diane.
My fiancee and I were in need of a Celebrant on short notice due to her father’s critical decline in health. Neither of us had enough time away from work schedules to obtain marriage licenses in Australia or her Father’s country, and New Zealand was our best bet. However the registry office was fully booked for two months in advance, and half a dozen inquiries via email from the New Zealand association’s list of celebrants only yielded two replies, one stating they were no longer a celebrant and the other answered that they were unavailable. On further searching, we found Diane, who informed us she could perform a ceremony on Saturday, in two days hence. Furthermore, she was able to provide the required two witnesses and gave us suggestions of venues where the wedding could be held. Both were at the top of my list gleaned from personal web searches and provided options should the weather turn ugly. Words cannot express how thrilled we were with Diane’s services. She was kind, very interested in our personal story, and extremely patient as I set up live streaming of the occasion via cell phone to my elderly mother on the other side of the world. Furthermore, her daughter who acted as one of the witnesses used my camera gear to record the occasion with superlative results. We were touched and could not have asked for a better Celebrant than Diane.
Thank you for being our celebrant and making our wedding day one to truly remember.
Thank you for being our celebrant and making our wedding day one to truly remember. You kept your cool and delivered a lovely ceremony while the wind battered our marquee, and kept us smiling throughout. I knew we had a good rapport with you, but this was confirmed latter when my (now) husband and I were told that you were the one who ironed his shirt while we were getting ready! Truly above and beyond the call of duty. For anyone who may be scouting your website for a capable and adaptable celebrant ( a must-have for a winter wedding, in my opinion) please set up a meeting. It was obvious right from the start that you truly cared about our day, and we really appreciate it!
We can’t thank Diane enough !
I have no hesitation in recommending Diane to act as a marriage celebrant, in fact, you would be lucky to find anyone who would do a better job! We set her a challenging task, as we live in Australia and were only travelling home to NZ to get married only a few days before the wedding. Diane had no issues organising the ceremony remotely, and every detail was planned over the phone and through email. We met only the day before the ceremony, and were instantly put at ease by Diane's' organisational skills and professionalism, nothing was too hard or too much effort. Diane quickly figured out our personalities and matched the ceremony perfectly. We couldn't be happier, and can't thank her enough! Thanks again Diane, and hopefully we meet again sometime in the future.
Our Wedding ceremony was everything that we imagined
Our Wedding ceremony was everything that we imagined , intimate and genuine. Diane was absolutely wonderful and paid attention to every detail. How great to have such concerned support from our Wedding Celebrant. Always reminding us, and suggesting to us small details that would've otherwise be missed , but which made our day richer and more meaningful. We are thankful.
We loved the ceremony.
Thank you for everything you did for our Wedding- it was beautiful and we had the most fantastic day. We loved the ceremony. Thanks again
Dear Diane, Thank you so much for coming and being our celebrant. It was so nice and special having you there to help us become happily married !
Humour, tenderness and love
My husband and I will be forever grateful for all the hard work Diane put into creating a very special and memorable wedding ceremony for us. Diane went the extra mile to ensure the ceremony was suited to us personally and included us in each and every step. She took on all our wishes and turned them into a reality that flowed wonderfully with her personal flair for creating beautifully written ceremonies. Humour, tenderness and love were all portrayed perfectly when the ceremony was read on the day and we became husband and wife. An amazing talented celebrant that is 100% deserving of many thanks and praise for her outstanding professionalism and easily liked personality. Diane, thank you very much for helping us create memories we will cherish for a lifetime.
A lovely intimate ceremony
Thank you so much for being our Wedding Celebrant. You really made us feel at ease during the Wedding rehearsal ( when nerves were running at a high), and did a great job in helping us to co-ordinate how the ceremony would work (including teaching the girls’ the “Bridesmaids’ Walk” ! ) On the big day itself, you did such a lovely job with our ceremony and helped us to feel at ease. We had a lot of comments from people, saying it was a lovely intimate ceremony. We would definitely recommend you to other couples planning their Weddings. Thanks again for all your help.
It was perfect!
Thank you so much for the lovely ceremony you gave us on Sunday ! Darshna and I thought it was perfect, and just what we wanted.
Very happy with your professional service
Hi Diane, Fili and I would like to thank you for being part of our surprise Wedding on the 1st of January at Mudbrick Vineyard, Waiheke Island. Who knew that planning a Wedding in 3 weeks before the big day was going to be such a breeze ! We were very lucky that you were able to come out of the first day of the year, and orchestrate such a beautiful ceremony that felt very personal and calming. Thank you for helping us to work out all the logistics of the big surprise ! It seemed like a big ask with the given time frame, but we managed to pull it off , with your help. Everyone that attended were very happy with your professional service and company.
Dear Diane, Thank you so much for everything, we both loved having you as our celebrant. You gave us so much information and great ideas…and helped us to relax and enjoy every part of our wedding day. And it was an excellent day .
You personalised the day to suit us perfectly.
Diane, thank you very much for being our wedding celebrant, you provided us with a beautifully structured ceremony. We had an amazing day, and can’t thank you enough for all you did to make it so special. We are especially grateful for your preparation and planning in such short notice. It was great that you had a range of readings, ceremonies etc for us to read through, and then allow us to make all of our own choices. You personalised the day to suit us perfectly. Thank you for also recommending our photographer ! You have a nice gentle manner, were easy to work with and our friends and family also commented on how lovely you were. Once again we would like to thank you personally for all your efforts, and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
