 Wedding Testimonials -2013

Liz and Jim 

Marriage is a very special and magical commitment between two people.  A wedding is a very special and magical occasion to join these two people in their marriage.  For Jim & I, who recently made this commitment, the most precious and wonderful part of our wedding was our beautiful ceremony.  It is the ceremony and vows which represent why we are joining together in marriage and it is the Wedding Celebrant who makes the ceremony such a treasured part of the wedding day.  

Trish, our amazing Celebrant.   Jim & I cannot thank you enough for making our ceremony more than either of us could have wished for.  From the moment we asked you until this day still, you were and are there for us in all ways possible and needed.  We thank you for your support, guidance, professionalism and commitment to making sure that our ceremony was absolutely the most treasured part of our wedding day.  Even though the rain drizzled down during it all, you helped make it feel like the sun was shining brightly, and made us, our family and friends know that this was not just a wedding, but a very special and magical marriage.  A very big heartfelt thank

you for this, and so much more Trish.  

Our day, and you being there to join us together in our love and

commitment, will always be treasured and magic.

 A Joyous Wedding for Liz and Jim

Wedding testimonial –  Michele and Adam

 We found Trish Lawton online. I was very impressed with her quick response to my email. We met her at her home and she was amazingly friendly.  Neither of us knew quiet what to expect, but she was very kind and talked us through everything. She was very interested in getting to know us, and making sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was very open about herself which help put our nerves at ease. We decided to book her then and there. Trish is very easy to get in touch with throughout the entire wedding process. Of all the wedding things we were worrying about our celebrant wasn’t one of them. I never once worried about the ceremony, I knew with Trish it would run smoothly. We knew she would be there, and be exactly what we needed for the day. She was very helpful and informative with the paperwork side of things too.  

 It can be very overwhelming but Trish talked us through every-thing and seemed happy to answer all sorts of potentially silly questions with professionalism. She ensured every detail was covered for us, even asking about wedding colours so her outfit for the day suited what we planned. I would highly recommend Trish to anyone who is getting married. She was very supportive, professional and was able to personalise the ceremony to suit us and our personalities.

Rita & Sean


 Rita and Sean enjoyed a perfect wedding ceremony on a glorious day in April 2013, at Veale Gardens. Theirs was a fairy tale setup, complete with balloons, archway, and flowers in a picturesque setting.

Trish was amazing!  She has such a warm and caring nature as soon as we went to our first meeting we knew she would be marrying us.

She explained everything to us with what we needed to do in order for everything to be right on the day. 

 The wedding was perfect, Trish even saved part of my wedding day when we had to use her signing table that she luckily had in car as the people who were meant to supply it forgotten.  

Trish made the ceremony part of our wedding day so easy.

 Thank you again Trish

Lee and Amelia

 March 2013

A perfect day at Carrick Hill celebrating the marriage of Amelia and Lee, in a

setting with large trees, lots of shade, and beautiful grounds. Guests could tour

historic Carrick Hill House if they wished, before enjoying the formal reception in the

wedding marquee.  


Thank you for the time you spent with both of us developing our special day. Your attention to detail, kind words and caring personality made the planning and day run perfectly and smoothly.  We truly could not have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you also for the beautiful folder you gave us.

With love and thanks

Lee and Amelia








Tony and Tracey-sue.







Patricia was recommended to us through a mutual friend, and after meeting her, we immediately felt comfortable in her being an integral part in our very important wedding day.

Patricia was always available to us when we needed advice on the ceremony leading up to the wedding, and on the wedding day, conducted the ceremony in a professional yet personal manner. After seeing what Patricia has to offer, some of our friends have indicated that they may now use her on their wedding day.

We would urge any couple who is considering using a celebrant, to consider using Patricia. You will not be disappointed.

Brittany and Daniel 

April 2013 








Brittany and Daniel enjoyed a wonderful wedding ceremony at Ayers House in July, surrounded by family and friends. The Ballroom and dining room were the perfect environment to showcase the elegance of the bridal party and exquisite presentation of their wedding dinner.

We cannot thank Patricia enough for both the professional and personal touch she brought to the experience of planning our wedding!

Being a young couple, the idea of planning our own marriage ceremony was a very new and daunting task. After consulting with Patricia, she provided us with all of the tools and advice that only a true professional could provide in customising a ceremony that was just right for us. Thoughtful, professional, flexible and patient are all understatements when describing our experience with Patricia, and we now often recommend her to friends and family who are thinking about or already planning their wedding. From the moment we were invited to meet her until those unforgettable steps down the aisle, we felt an overwhelming sense of relief knowing that the person we were trusting to deliver our marriage ceremony was an articulate, organised, sensible and professional woman; not only based on the testimonials on her website but also through her experience as an educator.

Thank you Patricia, we could not do it without you!

Craig and Cheryl

November 2013














Craig and Cheryl celebrated their marriage on a glorious Sunday afternoon, at a seaside suburb. They included their children in the official wedding party, the youngest Nicholas, winning the cute award. Everyone was happy and relaxed, right through to the grandparents, and family and friends alike had a wonderful time.


On first arrival Patricia was absolutely fantastic, took us in with open arms like one of the family. Very friendly and outgoing, and the effort to make it a personalized service was exceptional. The more information we gave Patricia the more she had to personalize our vows. Thank you Trish for making our special day fantastic we could not have asked a better person to marry us.

Sammy and Nick, November 2013









On a glorious sunny day at Thalassa Park, Aberfoyle Park, Sammy and Nick married. The wedding party was very colorful, and supported by a junior bridesmaid, and flower girl and page boy. Family members  came from England and Sydney to join in the celebrations.


Brendan and Sarah November 2013










On a glorious late afternoon at Sfera’s Function Centre, Modbury, Brendan and Sarah married. The bridal party was a picture of elegance and dignity, with both of Sarah’s sisters in a beautiful shade of pink dress, and the guys in very smart suits. Sarah’s gown glittered softly, and suited her to perfection. It was indeed a very happy ceremony.


On 28th January 2014, Lui surprised his wife on their 30th wedding anniversary with a Vow Re-newal ceremony at the Grange Hotel, with Patricia officiating.

Mara was certainly surprised and emotional as Lui spoke words of love and they renewed their vows in front of family and friends.
