What our couples say

Here at Modern Celebrant we lovingly craft and engagingly perform deeply meaningful wedding ceremonies. We care about getting to know our couples, so that we can write a ceremony for them is is real, true, and significant… for them, their families, and indeed everyone there to share the moment with them. Our couples, straight and same-sex of all faiths and backgrounds, are special people who choose Modern Celebrant for a reason. They want the ceremony that binds them together to be thoughtful and a memory to be cherished through all that lies ahead in the future.

One of our recent brides said it so beautifully,

“When it comes to wedding planning, my (new!) husband and I both feel that oftentimes the ceremony is overlooked in the exciting and overwhelming world of decor, dresses, venue, etc. And while all of those things are so important, we felt, and still feel, that our vows to each other and the ceremony itself make up the centrepiece of the entire wedding. After all, “making it official” is the whole reason behind all the fuss, isn’t it?

Our wedding spanned an entire weekend — it was the best weekend of our lives! Out of all of this, my favourite memory as a bride is having my closest friends and family sitting around my best friend and myself, taking part in the poignant and beautiful ceremony that Michele crafted by hand. We met many times over the year leading up to the wedding: Michele visited our home and got to know us as a couple and as individuals. The ceremony she created was unique, personalized, fun and touching. She had the entire place in tears at one point. She helped us create our own vows and “surprises” for each other, which we shared during the ceremony. And most of all, she paid the utmost respect to our parents, whom my husband and I admire and love dearly. She was able to say what we couldn’t quite put into words.”

We LOVE to hear feedback like this because are SO GLAD when couples remember that the core of the wedding day is not the bling.  It is the human heart.  Ten years from now, you won’t remember the precise shade of your orchids but we want you to remember the way you felt during your ceremony — and you will – guaranteed!
