Testimonials

AlllanahOur wedding would still have been lovely without Allanah as celebrant…. it just wouldn’t have been BRILLIANT! Our friends and family gathered together on our front lawn on what was a warm but slightly overcast day .. great for photos, and Allanah, who’d arrived earlier to greet guests and get miked up, was beautifully presented. At previous meetings she had provided us with wonderful options for creating our own personalised wedding ceremony. Having made our selections which also offered us the option of writing our own vows and choosing pieces personal to us, we felt confident that we were on track for the day.

With her mastery in public speaking, coupled with her great ‘humanity’, Allanah wove together the most wonderful ceremony that included light moments of relaxed laughter, tender moments where she used spaces in her own speaking, and then real impact moments of joy, cleverly brought to a peak by her skillful use of perfectly timed music and her own words of wisdom. Her knowledge and understanding of the role and responsibility of the celebrant were second to none. With Allanah we learned…timing is everything.

Thank you so much Allanah.

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely service you put on for our wedding. Your contribution really helped the day feel special. The words in particular were very touching. I would love to have a copy of the Blessing that you gave at the end, as I would like to show it to our little boy when he is older, so that he knows he was included.”
