Mr and Mrs Kelsie
Doug and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the fabulous service you prepared for us to celebrate our wedding. We knew we wanted a personal, fun, inclusive and heartfelt ceremony and that is exactly what you delivered. It seemed we had known you for ages after our first meeting and this shone through beautifully during the service. The first words to me from my dad when I arrived at the venue for the service were ‘Where did you find that lady she is wonderful!’ Following the service several of our friends stated they want you to perform their funerals … but not for 30/40 years! You made the whole event from start to finish a journey both Doug and I will remember with heartfelt fondness for the rest of our days. The service itself was so positive, filled with love, laughter, humour and a few tears. Your words drew our families together perfectly and all guests felt a part of the celebrations, many said it was the most touching wedding service they had ever attended! Your good humour and warmth put everyone at their ease and set the exact tone we wanted for our big day. Thank you again for everything you did for us and for making our day so special.
With love and best wishes,
Kay and Doug
From the minute I met Janine I instantly knew she was perfect for us, her lovely, welcoming, happy, confident personality which shone through in minutes made feel so happy and so relaxed.
As we are a very laid back couple we left a lot to last minute, one thing being the whole ceremony. Janine spent time talking us through it all giving us ideas, getting to know us, taking on the job above and beyond. She gave up her own time to message us with vow examples, readings for the ceremony, helping us involve my step children by having a sand ceremony, something I had never heard off before.
Every inch seemed so effortless to Janine, every step she showed us that our happiness, showing our love to everyone and it being just perfect was at the for front of her mind. (All of this was done in the two week lead up to her own wedding and even after she got home from her honeymoon)
We have been approached by so many of our guests to say how beautiful and perfect the ceremony was. Our step children loved the sand ceremony which was a visual way of showing our togetherness as a new family. I know my husband who was very emotional and nervous appreciated Janine’s calming conversation before I made my entrance.
I could easily go on with so many compliments on Janine and her outstanding business. We will love her for all she did and the beautiful memories she has given us forever on our big day, she will have a place in our hearts always xxxx
Thank you so much for everything. All of our guests were blown away by the ceremony and level of detail you included.
None of them had seen a sand ceremony and they all loved it. It’s been a pleasure working with you in preparation for the big day and you made it extra special for us.
Wishing you all the best for the future and of you ever need anything, please just let us know.
Thanks, Ryan and Emma.
Firstly we would like to start by thanking Janine for being so lovely, patient, warm and approachable. She was an absolute dream to work with!
My husband and I were thinking of using a celebrant at our wedding as we wanted that special touch. I was a little apprehensive at first but as soon as Janine emailed me back, she explained the whole process and I could just tell she would be perfect to lead our ceremony.
The day we met Janine, my husband and I knew instantly that we had made the right decision. Janine was so warm and friendly, it felt like we had known her for years! Nothing was ever a problem for Janine, she was always a phone call or an email away. Any worries that my husband or myself had, Janine was there the reassure us and help us along the way.
Leading up to the wedding day, Janine was so thoughtful, texting to make sure we were okay and to wish us luck. I don’t think she realised how much those messages meant! As soon as I walked down the aisle she instantly made me feel at ease. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Not only did we think that but the guests have not stopped telling us how perfect and personal it was and how they have never been to a ceremony like it before. Everybody was an emotional wreck!
I honestly can’t sing Janine’s praises enough. We have already spoken about how we cannot wait to book her in for a naming ceremony!! We cannot thank Janine enough for her amazing service, using a celebrant was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Kate and I would like to thank you for the ceremony on the 21st of April 2018, and being a huge part of our special day.
Your words were so meaningful and tailored to us and we really feel like you related everything to our lives, especially given the unusual rushed nature of our phone call days before the wedding day. Even though we did not get to meet you prior to our special day we felt so comfortable with you and our vows were exactly suited to us.
We cannot thank you enough and hope you enjoy watching it on tv.
Thanks again. You really are a wonderful celebrant and we would highly recommend you in the future.

We both cannot thank Janine enough for making our ceremony so perfect and so us.
We are not the mushy type, and Janine spent time with us to capture the essence of our relationship.
The time and effort spent was clear on the day as she captured the room with our story and commitment to each other.
An incredible moment in both our lives.
Our guests complimented every element of the ceremony especially the relevant humour Janine injected into the morning.
This is a great alternative to a registry only service, and allows you to properly share with your friends and family.
Thank you again Janine for everything. All our best Andrew and Lucy x
From the minute that I make contact with Janine for our families for a funeral I know that they are going to be in caring, compassionate hands.
Janine always looks after our families with empathy and professionalism and in a manner that shows that their loved one is the most important person to her.
Our families often comment on how Janine introduces herself to them very quickly enabling them to get an understanding on what type of celebrant Janine is and to give them the reassurance that she will hold their hands right the way through one of the most difficult times in their lives.
Janine is a truly lovely lady and always delivers a very personal service, I am privileged to know her.
Janine is outstanding at what she does! From starter email to the funeral day, she went above and beyond to support my dad, me and my brother. She has a heart of gold, and so very kind and supportive xx
Janine, you truly are a special person. During a very difficult time, you not only carried out Terry’s wishes but made it better than I could ever have hoped. Everyone left the funeral with a smile which is what he wanted and every single person told me how amazing they thought you were. Thank you so much xxx
Well i don’t think my review is going to do Janine justice – myself and my family cannot thank her enough for the service she gave for my mother from the very first meeting when Janine came to the house to speak with us she made us feel so at ease and for something that we were all dreading we actually finished our first meeting with lovely memories.
Janine listened to our stories, took everything down and sent us copies of the service well in advance so we could ensure it was just right.
On the day of the funeral it felt like Janine had known my mother for years the way she spoke and told our stories was beautiful and she was so supportive with myself as I wanted to speak she put me at ease, and i knew she was right there if i struggled.
So many people have since come on to us to enquire about Janine and her services – what she did was absolutely perfect and we can never thank you enough for giving our mum the send-off she deserved.
Love and best wishes to you and thank you x
What an awesome lovely lady. Your service today was lovely and respectful towards my dad and family. You made us laugh and cry, it was like you knew him yourself. Totally recommend this lovely lady x
Thank you so much Janine for making such a difficult time in our lives so special.
From our first meeting you were so lovely kind and considerate, and listened to everything I said.
You gave suggestions and nothing was too much trouble to ensure that the service we held for my brother was ‘simply the best’!
Thank you very much Janine! You’re so kind and listened to us as we spoke to you about my grandma. You couldn’t have spoke about my grandma any better. Very professional & polite . Thank you so much for your help !
I would like to thank you again for performing a lovely celebration of my mum’s life. You made a very difficult day a little easier and very special. Everyone who came to the crematorium commented that it was a beautiful service and one of the nicest they had ever attended. Please know how grateful I am for your part in Mum’s service. Kind regards.
As a funeral director ( now retired) I was so grateful to have met Janine at a time when bereaved families were looking for a more person focused funeral for their loved ones but without any restrictions. I have heard so many people say what a wonderful ceremony she had provided.
What a truly amazing lady. Understanding, sincere, compassionate -Janine done an amazing service and an honour to my dad… it was faultness xx
