My Wife and I were lucky to have Yvonne marry us in March 2020. She made the entire wedding process super easy and stress free. The part we loved most about having Yvonne as our celebrant was that she understood us, and we really felt as if she tailored our ceremony to really reflect our personalities and values. Throughout the ceremony she made us laugh and cry (the good kind)!

Yvonne married my gorgeous wife and I, in December 2019. Yvonne made our special day such a breeze, from helping planning what we would say, to who we involved in the ceremony and also gave us heaps of ideas to make it special and unique to us. Yvonne spoke very well and kept the ceremony fun and bubbly. After the ceremony I already had family and friends asking for her business card to marry them:)! She’s such a lovely person and we are so thankful we were luckily enough for her to marry us.

10/10!!! What a total GEM! From the beginning her professionalism and warm attitude put us at ease. Yvonne took care of all the hard stuff and helped us make our wedding ceremony fun, interactive and stress free. We loved all the options we had to create our own style of ceremony so it really felt like us. Our guests are still raving about how personal the day was and Yvonne really did set the tone. Love you Yvonne!! Highly recommended!!

Yvonne was our first and last celebrant we ever looked at for our wedding. We knew her as the celebrant for my wife cousin wedding and was attracted to her bubbly personality and professionalism. She did not disappoint, she was very well organized and experienced at the planning and presenting of our ceremony. Words just cannot describe how thankful we were able to have her as our celebrant on our special day.

Cannot recommend Yvonne enough she was so accommodating and happy for us to be a little different with what we did during the day. She married my older brother a few years ago and we were so happy for her to marry us also. Thank you Yvonne you made the day so easy for us x

Laura and Scott

Laura and Scott

Yvonne was a great celebrant. Laura’s family has known Yvonne in her other business for many years. Already knowing Yvonne, she was the first celebrant we organized to meet with.

After getting in touch with Yvonne at a Wedding Expo, we had our first meeting. After that first meeting, Scott and Laura agreed that she was the right celebrant for us. We didn’t even consider meeting with anyone else. From that very first meeting, almost 15 months out from our wedding, we both felt we were in the right hands with Yvonne.

Emma and Lloyd

I feel sad that the wedding is over and we will miss planning the day with her. She also provided us with invaluable paperwork which helped us plan our ceremony.

From the moment I met Yvonne I knew she would be the perfect celebrant for our wedding. She was the most delightful person to work with and truly made our ceremony one to remember. It is clear that Yvonne is dedicated to her profession, creating a ceremony that represented us as a couple – it was as if she had known us for years! The memories that were created during our ceremony are something we truly cherish. We highly recommend Yvonne if you’re looking for a celebrant who takes the time to get to know you and creates a ceremony that will truly reflect you and your partner.
In all honesty we could not fault the whole process and the ceremony is one of my fondest memories from the day – so thank you for all that you did!

Michelle and Eddie

Michelle and Eddie

Thank you so much for making our day stress-free and very personal. We were worried that arranging a private ceremony in Australia – all the way from Scotland – would be difficult, but you kept us right and made it simple every step of the way. You included all of the family and made everyone feel so relaxed. We feel so lucky to have had you on our day and we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to get married, no matter where they are making the arrangements from! Love and best wishes from us xox

Yvonne was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was genuine, caring, organised, efficient and very experienced. Her love of life and people shone through and her sense of humour, especially when things got tense and stressful in the lead up to the wedding, was a blessing. Her attention to detail was second to none and her generosity of time and meetings to ensure everything was perfect was greatly appreciated. We couldn’t recommend her more to any couple embarking on the amazing (and at times overwhelming!) journey of getting married!

Yvonne gave above and beyond anything than was expected. Her services made the whole thing so easy and we didn’t have to worry about anything. With the birth of our son unexpectedly 2 weeks before the wedding she took on anything she could to help us and made it so easy. Her presentation and professional manner on the day was great and she made the feel of the ceremony exactly how we wanted it to be.

Yvonne was everything I could ever have hoped to find in a celebrant.

She helped us every step of the way and made the wedding planning process – something I had absolutely been dreading – seem like a breeze.

She helped us create a unique, heart-warming ceremony that reflected our personalities perfectly. Nothing was ever too much trouble and Yvonne was with us every step of the way.

Our friends and family still talk about how much they loved our ceremony because it was “not like the usual ceremonies” and was “us to a tee”.

As soon as we met Yvonne we just clicked and new she would do a fantastic job, we are so grateful for her efforts heading down to Torquay for the rehearsal, and on the day.

Our guests just loved her!

Yvonne helped calm Trav’s nerves, and delivered our ceremony just the way we wanted J

Thank you so much Yvonne!

Dave and I wanted to thank you for making our wedding day a truly memorable occasion. We were so grateful for your advice and guidance on how to create our service in a personal way that demonstrated our love for each other and our lifelong commitment.

You made our ceremony professional, relaxed, with a little humour and most importantly was delivered in a way that represented us so well.

We cannot thank you enough for your help with our very special day.

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did as our wedding celebrant. You’re professional, reliable, well-spoken, organised, informative, and genuine, and you made our day run seamlessly.

You thought of everything from chatting to our readers and music man to your outfit colour, to the direction in which we stood so the sun wasn’t glaring in our eyes.

We enjoyed the process from start to receiving our marriage certificate!

And a special thank you for calming my nerves prior to walking down the aisle which I’m really grateful for 🙂

All our guests commented on how great you were and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our family and friends.

You were made for this job, and we wish you all the happiness and joy that you brought to our day.

Yvonne Wood conducted our wedding in March 2016 and it was an absolute delight to have her host our day.  She was a great guide through the whole wedding planning process.  Yvonne provided us with many ceremony options so that we could create a truly unique day and she was very flexible and helpful when we wanted to make changes.  On the day we couldn’t have wished for things to run more smoothly and a lot of the credit is owed to Yvonne, she conducted the service with heartfelt charm and humour and since the day we have had many comments on how lovely the ceremony was.  Yvonne also managed to keep a somewhat unruly bridal party in line and on time.  We are truly grateful to her for being such a significant part of our day and helping make it so memorable.  Any bride and groom would be lucky to have her conduct their ceremony.

Yvonne was warm and genuine, she listened to what we wanted and took the hassle out of organising our ceremony. I found the idea of being up in front of everyone on my wedding day daunting, but Yvonne was reassuring, nurturing to our needs and gave me the confidence to not only get through it, but enjoy it! Thank you.

Yvonne! What can we say? You absolutely made our day! We could not have asked for better. The effort and love that you put into, not only your ceremonies, but also your couples, absolutely shines through.
We are so grateful to have shared this experience with you and it has been a pleasure getting to know you. The amount of time and effort you have put into us over the past 15 months is so appreciated.
I think you’re right – everything happens for a reason. We were meant to cross paths and you were meant to be our celebrant. We will treasure the day – and you – always.

“It was wonderful to have Yvonne as our celebrant. She is charming, charismatic, professional, and so lovely and easy to work with.
Our ceremony was beautiful and conducted exactly the way we desired. Many of our guests pulled us aside to compliment you. Saying they were really impressed and felt that you truly cared for us. Thank you for all your hard work in creating and conducting our ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Lots of love Kate and Alex. ”

From the moment we met with Yvonne we connected with her. She has a beautiful, bright and warm personality and is a wealth of information. Yvonne helped guide us in so many ways.
Planning a wedding can be a very intense undertaking and it was such a relief to feel that we had someone to take care of the ceremony (with our input, of course). Yvonne was a calming, steadying, reliable and positive presence throughout the lead-up to the wedding and then again on the day.
She worked collaboratively with us to ensure that we had a ceremony that was perfect for us and honoured those who were important to us.
During our rehearsal she was able to provide direction and many helpful hints. She thinks of every last detail. As a perfectionist bride, I cannot tell you how reassuring that is!
On the day of our wedding she was able to support us through a tense situation and then managed to undertake the ceremony poised and gracious as ever.
We had many guests comment on how mobbing and beautiful the ceremony was and we both feel happy and grateful we had this beautiful spirit conduct such an important part of our lives. A massive thank you to you, Yvonne!! All our love xox

Yvonne, your services exceed what we expected. Even though we wanted something very simplistic for our wedding, you gave us so many options and samples we couldn’t help but add a small bit of personalisation in to make it a bit more unique for everyone’s experience.

You worked with us when we are based overseas with lots of emails, and beared with my late replies. 🙂

In the end you kept your promise and wedded us as planned down to the letter. Friends and family thought the wedding ceremony was very well done and thought very highly of it.

Also was very helpful with the post process of getting the marriage certificate in a timely manner. We managed to get it within the week 🙂

 Once again would like to say thank you and wish you all the best!

What can we say! A perfect day, a perfect wedding, and a perfect celebrant in Yvonne.

We had a wonderful ceremony done by Yvonne which exceeded our expectations. Her attention to detail was wonderful. Although we had a very small, private ceremony (only 10), we still had all the bling that comes with a normal wedding.

Yvonne was in constant contact with us regarding all the preparations, numerous emails and she gave us a lot of information about our vows, the types of ceremonies we could have and also a large selection of music to choose from, while being open to any ideas that we may have had ourselves.

It was a genuine pleasure and honour to have Yvonne as our celebrant, and our family and friends also commented that it was the best wedding they had been to.

With her warmth, friendliness and professional manner, it was certainly a day to remember, and we will treasure the wonderful memories that Yvonne helped us to celebrate.

From our first meeting with Yvonne she was friendly and connected with both of us. She was a delight to work with. Always organised and full of helpful tips. The ceremony was worded beautifully and present wonderfully. We couldn’t have found a better celebrant to marry us. Thank you. Mr and Mrs Lelean
