“Dear Lynn,

Just a quick note to thank you for helping us create a truly memorable marriage ceremony.

We really appreciate all your hard work with the wording of the ceremony and making it so personalised – everyone commented on how lovely it was and how well you seemed to know us!

A job well done I say Lynn :-) – you were born to be a wedding celebrant!

Many thanks, your happy couple,

Thanks Lynn for sharing the day with us and keeping up with the temperature!!

We hope you recovered well from the ‘event’ and may all future beach weddings have a few degrees less . . .  Jenny and I had a great few days over in Rotto and were thinking yesterday afternoon about the 1 week ‘anniversary’ with a smile on our faces.

Thanks again and all the best for the future.

Cheers Peter H. & Jen (and the three amigos)

What a wonderful wedding ceremony; one we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Lynn, you made it a very beautiful and personal ceremony. A large number of our guests commented on the presentation and content as well as the personal and heartfelt approach by you Lynn.  You are a very professional and dedicated Celebrant who gave us so many ideas, options and guidance which helped make our wedding absolutely perfect. Thank you Lynn for everything. We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants the very best wedding ceremony possible.  Thank you.  We feel truly blessed to have found you.

With much love, Lew and Julia Clarke.

Where can we begin! Thank you so much for all you have done over the past year!! You have kept us organised and got us to our big day!

You ran the ceremony flawlessly and supported us every step of the way. All you have done with the presentation of our ceremony is awesome, a real special keepsake that we can treasure forever!

You gave us direction with the sand ceremony (even though Mitch poured early haha), now we have that as a decoration in our home. You made sure everything went without a hitch and we will be forever grateful.

We will fill out your review sheet and return it to you. If there is anything else we can do for you let us know!!

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Hi Lynn,

Perth has totally won us both over. You had a major role in this. You really did go above and beyond for us both and for that we thank you so much. It was fantastic to meet you, and get to know you a little during our fleeting visit to Perth. Thank you also for welcoming us so warmly into your beautiful home in Cottesloe. Without your help, (and I am positive no-one else would have been as supportive or quite so organised as yourself) our special day would not have been so special. We truly did have such a wonderful day, all organised (or organized) and prepared beautifully by yourself. It was relaxed, casual and very special.

I have looked over your website and cannot find a place to mark my comments for others to see, Could you please let me know how I can do this?

Both Daisy and Joshua have been telling friends and family about the train trip they took with Lynn the day we visited the city to get our Certificate.

Thank you again for all of the attention to detail you provided. We hope that Perth is looking after you well.

Lots of Love, Mr and Mrs Hingert xxx Freshwater, Isle of Wight, England.

“Good morning Lynn,

Thank you very much for everything you have done for us!

We really appreciate it & you did a wonderful job!

A couple of friends getting married in the near future even asked for your name! I’m going to email you the photo of Silvs “fist pump” that he was so very proud of! With love Ang & Silv.”

Lynn made our day/ceremony unique and very “us”. She was always available and easily contactable during the lead up to the wedding. Extremely helpful always, cheerful and genuine. We were blown away with her efforts and delivery. Thank you Lynn! You are amazing. Ang and Silv.

To all couples looking for THE BEST! Lynn exceeded our expectations in the preparation of our wedding on 3rd March 2012 from our first to our last meeting including unlimited emails and telephone calls, providing relevant resource material, endless time and opportunity and explained everything very thoroughly in an easy simple way which was easy to understand. Lynn was so sincere in her delivery of our personally meaningful ceremony. She has a beautiful tone to her professional voice. It made the ceremony even more special. She was pleasant to listen to. A beautifully presented poem was read by her which we will never forget. I/We are so glad and honoured to have had Lynn deliver the ceremony. Lynn met with us numerous times and matched our personalities perfectly to the ceremony. We could not have asked for a better Celebrant. SHE IS THE BEST!    Tracy and Darryn

Lynn, your warmth and sincerity, your ability to listen and place our needs into the most wonderful ceremony, show that you care so much about your role. Our day would not have been as easy and stress free without your ability to word our ceremony with so much love.Lynn, it is great to see a person so devoted to her role and with an ability to put into words our feelings and thoughts. Thank you so much for your help and wisdom. We loved all parts of our wedding and you were not a small part in making it that way.  Love James (Jim) and Fiona (Flossi) Hawley.

Lynn, you were MAGNIFICENT! Even the guests said, the wedding was amazing, “… the Celebrant did a magnificent job”, “… it is one of the best weddings we have ever been to, the wording and the atmosphere, brought a tear to our eyes one minute and had us laughing the next.” “… The whole occasion was so heart-warming.”

Lynn, you did a wonderful job. From the serendipity of our meeting in the Fremantle hospital, through the officialdom of form-filling, the planning of the ceremony and the Marriage Ceremony itself at Burns Beach, you were so enthusiastic and understood and anticipated our every need. You made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process.

Lynn we want to thank you for all you did for us. We would be more than happy and proud to recommend you and your services to anybody wishing to engage a Marriage Celebrant.Feel free should anyone enquire to give them our phone number for a personal testimonial!

All our very best, Trish and Ted.

“John and myself would like to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we were with our daughter Abbey’s Namegiving Ceremony. All the work you put into it leading up to the day made things run so smoothly.We know you spent a lot of time ensuring it was all set out just right, and we want you to know how much we appreciate all the effort that went into it. It was a beautiful ceremony, we are so pleased we did it.We would also like to say how very much we loved the sand ceremony, thank you so much for suggesting it. The fact that everyone could participate in the ceremony was wonderful, it made the day extra special.I must also thank you for the bound copy of the ceremony you presented us with, such a lovely memento for us to keep, just gorgeous.

We really cannot thank you enough for giving us a very special day in our daughter’s life, one we will treasure always.
