Silvia and Kirk, Swan Valley, April 2017(Italian/English)
We just wanted to thank you so much for the marvellous ceremony yesterday. We felt every single moment and we received a lot of compliments regarding the idea of conducting the ceremony in Italian and English and the way in which it was conducted.
Tracey and Tom, Swan Valley, April 2017(from Mother of the Groom)
We can't thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony on Tom and Tracey's special day. They were so happy. It was fabulous to have you there as their celebrant, Susanna. You added a really special personal touch and it meant such a lot to our whole family
Naama and Tim, East Fremantle, March 2017
Tim and I would like to thank you for the joyous and profound marriage ceremony you helped us create, and which you delivered faultlessly.
From the first morning we met in your home in North Fremantle, among the artworks and the dictionaries, Tim and I knew you were the right person to marry us. We have appreciated your warmth, insight and professionalism, as well as your thoroughness, efficiency and attention to detail. Throughout this process you have been so engaged, positive and willing to contribute ideas while always respecting our vision for the ceremony. Not to mention patient in receiving multiple drafts of our vows!
We have had countless comments from friends and family saying how moved they were by the marriage ceremony, and I think I speak on behalf of all our guests when I say you brought a sense of warmth, dignity and love to the occasion.
Our heartfelt thanks for all your amazing work not only on the day but also in the lead-up to our wedding.

Andrea and Michael, Crawley, December 2016
Michael and myself would like to say a big thank you to Susan who conducted our wedding ceremony on 30th December at Matilda Bay. She was very passionate about creating a very special day for us. She had lots of unique ideas for the ceremony and was very open to include everything that we wanted. She is very relaxed and friendly and really helped us through the whole process. We would highly recommend Susan and a big thanks again for a great day
Jane and Stephen, Cottesloe, November 2016
Thank you so much for conducting the ceremony for our wedding. The ceremony was fun, entertaining and yet very heartfelt which were all the things we wanted. I had numerous comments about the vows and how lovely they were – which were your ideas and inputs. We are extremely happy we chose you!
Enrico and Sarah, Mosman Park, November 2016 (Italian/English)
Thanks to you for having made our special day so unforgettable.
Everyone thought the ceremony was amazing, short funny yet so meaningful!
We had so much fun. A day we will never forget!
Andrew and Meagan, South Perth, August 2016
Andrew and I wanted to drop you a line to say a humungous thank you for being our marriage celebrant. We really appreciated the time you put into getting to know us to make sure the ceremony was a true reflection of us. We received so many comments from people saying that the ceremony was "so us" and we were both thrilled with how happy, loving and inclusive the ceremony was.
Emmanuelle and Troy, Darlington, April 2016(French/English)
Thank you so so much for yesterday - it was truly magical for us. Our guests absolutely loved the ceremony some saying it was one of the most thoughtful they ever saw.
Minna and Brett. Nedlands, April 2016
Susanna helped us create a brief but very beautiful and memorable ceremony for Brett & I to legally marry in Australia before we head over to Hawaii for our wedding. Susanna is so warm hearted, understanding and helpful and she embraced the kind of ceremony we wanted with no questions. We are so happy that Susanna was a part of our day
Mel and Matt, Ardross, February2016 (Baby Naming)
Susanna has been an important person for a number of occasions for our family over recent years and we have been so delighted with her thoughtful and creative approach that we asked her to conduct our daughter’s naming ceremony which we tied in with her first birthday celebrations. Susanna was also our wonderful wedding celebrant and on that occasion suggested the use of loving cups as part of the ceremony. The loving cups were again used for the naming ceremony and have now created a ritual to acknowledge godparents and grandparents in our daughter’s life. The ceremony Susanna conducted for us was beautifully personalised towards our family and made the first birthday celebration unique and one we will always remember. Thank you so much Susanna.
Perla and Serxho, Rottnest Island, January 2016 (Italian/English)
Un grandissimo ringraziamento a Susanna per la bellissima cerimonia che ha scritto solo per noi. La nostra esperienza è stata resa unica e indimenticabile grazie alla tua professionalità, hai colto l'essenza del nostro sentimento e raccontato la nostra storia in una cerimonia che ci ha presentati ad amici e parenti per la prima volta come marito e moglie. Come coppia siamo fieri e ci consideriamo fortunati di averti conosciuta ed incaricata per questo ruolo che hai saputo svolgere in modo impeccabile. Forse solo un amico potrebbe celebrare con tanta emozione un matrimonio, e tu sei una grande amica.
A huge thank you to Susanna for the very beautiful ceremony she wrote just for us. Thanks to your professionalism you made our experience unique and unforgettable. You gathered the essence of our feelings and told our story in a ceremony which introduced us to our friends and family as husband and wife for the first time. As a couple we are proud and consider ourselves lucky to have met you and entrusted you with this role which you were able to carry out in such an impeccable way. Perhaps only a friend could conduct a marriage ceremony with so much feeling...and you are a very special friend.
Thank you again from Serxho and Perla.
Elisa and Chris, Crawley, December 2015 (Italian/English)
Thanks again for the ceremony, everyone, especially my relatives in Italy, enjoyed it a lot!!
Emma and Heath, Mosman Park, November 2015
We just wanted to get in touch to once again say the biggest warmest thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the service yesterday. We couldn’t have been happier with how the whole day unfolded and the ceremony was superb – filled with so much love – and you were a key part of that. You set the tone beautifully and your words and sentiment touched us deeply. We had numerous guests commenting on how wonderful you were, so thank you! You made the day that much more special for us.
Claudia and Sam, Leeming, October 2015 (Spanish/English)
Sam and I both want to thank you again for helping us create exactly the type of wedding ceremony that we wanted. We couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. Our family and friends all commented on how beautiful they thought the ceremony was, so thank you.
Will and Isni, Peppermint Grove, December 2014
Our ceremony was a momentous one thanks to Susanna who is a true professional – very personable with a warm nature and laid back style, caring, accommodating and with a good sense of humour. She embraced our wishes of including a welcome to country, loving cup ritual and sand ceremony and motivated us to not just roll up on the day but to think and participate fully in the creation of the ceremony. We highly recommend Susanna if you want a unique ceremony that reflects your personalities and ethos.
Wendy and John, Peppermint Grove, October 2014
Susanna has a warm, friendly, relaxed approach and we connected with her immediately. Her professionalism cannot be faulted. She attended to all the legalities and helped us personalise every aspect of our ceremony, including suggestions of wonderful rituals to include. We highly recommend her to all our family and friends
Anne & Rel, Fremantle April 2015
Susanna, Thank you so very much for assisting us to create such a fabulously intimate, beautiful and apt commitment ceremony. Everyone commented on how amazing the ceremony and that most were reduced to tears (of joy). You officiating our ceremony ensured its integrity and genuineness and captured who we are and what our relationship is all about. We couldn't have dreamt of a more perfect ceremony.
Maria & Nigel, Bicton May 2014
Maria and I would like to thank Susanna for making our special day extra special. She introduced us to many different ceremonies (rituals) which lead us to much research, teaching us a lot about the marriage process. We opted for a hand binding ceremony which is a Celtic tradition and as we are both of Celtic descent we thought it the most appropriate way to “tie the knot”. Not only are we grateful to her for help in choosing what type of ceremony we would like, her guidance throughout the whole process was above and beyond what we expected. She helped us with the layout of the ceremony, our vows, the location, everything down to ideas for the colour of ribbon to use and where to buy it. Susanna has many great ideas, is very easy going and easy to talk to which made planning our big day very easy and stress free.
Kendall & John, York April 2014
In the process of finding a celebrant, the one thing that you identify is that you need a connection with that person. One meeting is usually all you have and that, along with a couple of pictures, is all you have to go by.
When we first met Susanna, she welcomed us into her lovely home and treated us as though we had been friends for many years. She was genuinely interested in us and wanted to ensure that our ceremony was a perfect reflection of us.
The process of arranging the wedding and ceremony is very emotional and Susanna made us feel very comfortable every step of the way. Susanna was great at normalising the process by talking through each step one by one, with examples, whilst still allowing for our own individual expression.
On the day, there were a number of hurdles that required Susanna to think on her feet, rain and thunder, a random bobtail and a very chatty nervous bride and a couple of ceremony relocations due to the weather. She handled the whole ceremony and the obstacles with grace and professionalism. If you want a genuine, personable, attentive and professional celebrant, Susanna is the person you’re after.
Stephanie & Darren, Heirisson Island Perth February 2014
Von der ersten Minute an haben wir uns wohlgefuehlt und wussten, dass wir mit dir den perfekten Celebrant fuer uns gefunden hatten. Die Betreuung vor der Hochzeit, die passenden Worte waehrend der Zeremonie, all dass haette nicht besser sein koennen. Unsere Trauung auf Heirisson Island war ein unvergesslicher Traumtag, fuer den wir uns recht herzlich bedanken moechten. Vielen Dank auch noch mal fuer den Tip mit dem Loving Cup Ritual, eine sehr schoene Sache.
From the first moment we met you we knew that we found the perfect celebrant in you. Our Ceremony on Heirisson Island the preparation of it and the words you found to describe our relationship – simply perfect. We want to thank you so much to make our special day even more special. Also the idea of the Loving Cup was amazing and just perfect for us. Thank you so much!!!
Katherine & Thomas, Nedlands February 2014
We feel incredibly blessed to have had Susanna officiate at our wedding ceremony. We planned our wedding from overseas, and Susanna was happy and willing to meet via Skype a few times before the ceremony. Even with this restriction Susanna completely understood “us” and created a beautiful ceremony that was moving, lighthearted and full of love.. which was exactly what we were hoping for. Susanna was calm and heartfelt and all our guests who met with her afterwards commented on her professionalism and basic awesomeness. We couldn’t recommend Susanna more highly.
Carmel & Michael, Fremantle December 2013
My fiancé and I were organising our Fremantle wedding from Melbourne and Susanna liaised with us long distance without a problem even making time to “meet” with us over Skype.
Susanna gave us full creative rights to compose our own vows, readings and introduction as well as always being there to help when we needed it. We co-created our ceremony and Susanna was invaluable in making the words consistent with marriage laws as well as delivering them on the day in a heartfelt and meaningful way that all our guests responded to very positively.
It was important for us to include a personal statement of our support for marriage equality and we also knew we wanted to include a Welcome to Country to honour the traditional owners of the land on which we were performing the ceremony. Susanna knew just how to do this and our guests were truly touched by her words.
We could not have been happier with our personalised ceremony and I am certain this wouldn’t have been possible without Susanna’s warmth, guidance and grace. Susanna is a joy to spend time with and a calm, kind presence at your side when things could otherwise become stressful. A big thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
