I always dislike filling out feedback forms with a 100% approval rating, but there is nothing that Tom could have done better. And that is the way one should feel about their wedding. Tom was perfect in helping us through the process, offering us valuable advice, both in person at his home as well as via email for other details. His booklet of possible ways the service could go was thoughtful and gave us ideas which really made the day. Not only was he a great communicator on the day, he read the guests and the bridal party well and adlibbed for some spontaneous moments.

You made our day ‘A Day to Remember’. We felt comfortable with you; you helped us understand and guided us through as we weren’t very clear on exactly what went where. The guidelines in the book were great.
When Corey was struggling to hear on the day you kept it flowing and didn’t make him even more nervous. Even at the rehearsal you made me feel at ease when I had my little meltdown.
You made it very personal; we felt you had been a long-time family friend the way you delivered our ceremony. We also had lovely comments from our guests. Thank you for making our day special!

Celeste and Corey – Huonville

Simply being familiar with what will occur helped calm our nerves, and our bridal party agreed.

Carissa and Kirk – Lenah Valley

After our initial meeting, we knew our wedding ceremony was in expert hands. We had the same feeling of confidence on the wedding day, and it wasn’t misplaced.

The service you provided as a celebrant is beyond what we expected. The book ‘A Day to Remember’ was everything we needed.
