Martess was a wonderful celebrant for our wedding on the 24th of November.
Martess was incredibly friendly,
kind and professional.
We found her easy to get along with
from beginning to end!
Her organisation of the ceremony was outstanding.
She provided drafts on the ceremony script, advice on our vows and readings,
and accepted last minute additions.
She was flexible with the rehearsal,
and responded to all communication promptly.
On our day she presented very well and provided a warm and welcoming ceremony.
Her husband, Alan, provided us some photos after the wedding, which we received before we got home on our wedding night! The photos are simply gorgeous and some of my favourites we have seen so far.
Thank you for all your work, Martess.

Martess was incredibly organised
(like there are no words to describe how prepared she was haha),
professional and so much fun.
She is such a lovely person who clearly has a true passion for love and what she does.
The stress of some parts of our wedding
was completely taken away thanks to her,
even appointments before hand she was flexible and accommodating.
So many people commented on how sweet and funny she was, and spoke very well so everyone could hear and understand, even through hail.
We would also like to greatly thank Alan (Martess’s husband) for the many and beautiful photos he took at our ceremony. It was wonderful to have so many photos the day after our wedding, while waiting on professional photos to enjoy.

We really want to thank you for setting the scene for a relaxed and fun day. From the moment we met and discussed our wedding, Dave and I knew that you understood the type of wedding we were wanting...relaxed, fun and personal. I have to say the support that you gave us along the way, as well as the opportunity for us to go through the motions at the dress rehearsal with you, meant that I had no concerns at all about the ceremony. I had confidence that no matter what, you would be able to make sure that it flowed beautifully and that everybody felt a part of the day. This is a huge thing for any bride, so a big thank you for that. And honestly it was everything and more than we expected. We have had many guests comment on how lovely you were throughout the morning and how many beautiful moments there were, from when Zac walked me down the aisle, to our personal vows and the moment when you brought our family together as part of the ceremony.
Barb & Dave
Thank you for being part of our wedding and your wonderful service and conducting a beautiful ceremony. We honestly had the best time and are both so happy with how it all went, you handled the very funny interruption from those birds so well hahaha
The ceremony was fun and full of love, which really describes us to a tee.
I wish we could all go back and be in that exact moment again, it was great.
Thank you so much,
Rachel and James
