Gabby + Dane
"Hey man! Thankyou SO SO SOOOO much for being such a huge part of our marriage! The whole night we were having guests ask us how we found you, or how long we’d be mates for because they thought you were just like an old friend! We were bombarded with nothing but love for you! We were told over and over again how unique our ceremony was and that it was the best they’d seen in ages. So really Thankyou for making it what it was - the best day ever!
Emily + Jordan
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for us yesterday and leading up to it. From dealing with our nerves and crying and reminding us when to hold hands. Even giving us a copy of the vows and speeches was an amazing touch.
We knew you would make the ceremony exactly the way we wanted and it was just beyond perfect. You went above and beyond with helping rearrange the furniture and making sure everything went smoothly and we really appreciate it. SO many people commented on what a fantastic job you did!
Thank you so much, you're the best!
Scott + Tessa
"We both just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for all your help, you were perfect for our wedding and made it all so easy. The whole thing ran like clockwork and thanks heaps for doing the music and all that as well! We had rave reviews from people saying you were awesome"
Brianna + Beau
"Mr Paul Voge!
Where do we start! You are one truly gifted guy!
From our very first meeting we knew you were the guy we wanted to marry us!! 😉
You are incredible at what you do. Like many have said before, you were the first thing that all of our guests commented on. We heard a lot of “your celebrant was awesome” “that celebrant was incredible”.
You have the ability to make every moment ‘normal’, relaxed, unique and so funny! You clearly pay attention during every meeting in the lead up to a wedding. It was special to hear you whip out random facts about our life and relationship, things we wouldn’t expect. You honestly made our day! From packing confetti, giving pre wedding pep talks, rose petal sprinkling, drink fetching or simply agreeing to getting cheesy pictures with us, you are the jack of all trades! During the whole process you gave so much of yourself to ensure our day was perfect 😊 we are so lucky to have found you! We 1000000% will be recommending you to anyone and everyone needing a celebrant! Thank you thank you thank you!! Love Brianna & Beau - the new Mr & Mrs Mallon "
Julia + Bojan
"Just wanted to thank you again for putting on a next level great Ceremony for us. I have had so many people comment on how much they enjoyed it, and that they thought it was the best flow and most different ceremony they've ever experienced, so your mission has been fully accomplished.
I was running on so much adrenaline, I can hardly remember the details, so I am so, so excited to get the Wedding Vid. I will definitely send you the link when it comes through.
Thank you again also for bringing Simon into the Ceremony.
He would have been involved in the ceremony if he was here, so, for me, having you speak so beautifully about him felt like the closest thing to actually having him there and being involved in that moment. I feel SO lucky for that, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Rachael + Kerrin
"WOW, where do I even start? You were just amazing!
We are so sad its all over because you just made the day so awesome and truly unique for us and for that we are forever grateful.
You went above and beyond for us, so thank you!"
Jenna + Josh
"Thanks a million!!! You killed it! Thanks for making our day that much more awesome! Josh and I said to each other the next day that we both didn't want you to leave after - you were our life line 😂 ….Seriously though, awesome job 🙌 you're in the right job."
Adelle + Tom
"You made our day truly special and everyone said how down to earth and fun you made it, you did a really great job and it couldn't have been more us...feels like you've known us for an eternity!"
Amy + Jordan
"Now that we are home we just wanted to say thank you for being so great!
You made getting married super easy and stress free.
Thanks for helping us with our vows, the coffee catch ups and telling us to hold hands on the day so we didn't look stupid! We really appreciate it. We had a great deal of feedback on your ceremony on the day, things like you were awesome, cool dude and you made it great to watch. Go Paul!"
Heather + Matt
"Matt and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for being a part of our wedding day.
For a couple who are not typically lovey dovey and don’t like declaring their love in front of others, we really cringed at the thought of our wedding ceremony being cheesy and uncomfortable for us and our guests.
I am so glad you were recommended to us, and from the moment we met you we knew you were the perfect celebrant for us. You instantly made us laugh and feel at ease.
I’m sure most people will admit (myself included) that the ceremony is the boring part of the wedding before the real party starts.
This couldn’t have been further from the truth for us on our wedding day. You made the ceremony fun, enjoyable and had everyone laughing.
I know we wouldn’t have made it easy for you since we refused to talk (other than the one line we legally had to say) but you made the ceremony personal for us and kept it light hearted and fun.
We had so many people tell us how awesome you were after the ceremony… but we already knew this!
Thanks again you really made the day for us and we will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know getting married. "
Paige + Brandon
"Thanks so much for the ceremony. It was perfect and everyone was raving about it, but most of all, it was totally us. We really appreciate everything you have done for us and helped us out with."
Bianca + Adam
"I just wanted to say a HUGE belated thank you for absolutely rocking our day! You were FANTASTIC and our guests couldnt speak more highly of you. It was exactly what we wanted- a big party and so much fun!
Your energy was just awesome and I cannot thank you more for your fun personal touches and crowd pleasing gestures. I might be biased but you are 100% the best celebrant I have ever witnessed.
Thank you again times a million. Hope our photographer got some sneaky shots of you (cause I know you hate pictures hahaha)"
Taryn + Kahl
"Kahl and I are back in chilly Melbourne town from our honeymoon and just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you!!
We were so so happy with how the ceremony ran and loved every minute of it.
Loved having my sister's speak on the day and that you incorporated it all so well.
You were so organised and made sure everything ran on schedule. You went so above and beyond with your duties and we are ever grateful for that.
You probably hear this all the time (but also good to keep hearing the good feedback!) but everyone commented to us that it was the best ceremony they'd been to and that's all thanks to you. You made everyone feel comfortable without telling them what to do and made it light-hearted and fun, which is what it should be as a celebration. So thank you so much for that from the bottom of our hearts!"
Jess + Jack
"Jack and I just wanted to say a massive thank-you for travelling to Byron to marry us! So many of our guests commented on how awesome you were and one of them even said she would fly you to Townsville to be her celebrant (when she eventually gets married lol) because that how good you were! :) So once again, thank-you so so much - it wouldn't have been the same without you!"
Rhiannon + Alex
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did last Saturday. We have had so many compliments on how fantastic you were and how wonderful the ceremony was. It was better than I could have ever imagined."
Erin + Adam
"HUGE THANKS for being a legend and creating a brilliant ceremony for us. The ceremony was our favourite part of the day and you are definitely responsible for that. Our confetti photo is friggen amazing, thanks for making sure the guests knew what they were doing and didn't just throw it straight at our faces. You are the best ever!"
Demi + Mitch
"Mitch and I just wanted to say a massive thank you. You made our day so special and made us feel so at ease. So many of our guests mentioned how hilarious & wonderful they thought you were and they highly recommend you!! Thank you again, we really appreciate everything you have done for us Paul."
Hannah + Drew
"Drew and I wanted to say a massive thank you to you for everything you did for us on and in the lead up to our wedding day.
We really had a wonderful day and you made everything very easy - thanks for all your assistance with the vows, planning, etc. I know how nervous I was going into the ceremony but thankfully knowing you had our shit sorted certainly made me slightly less nervous, ha!
All our guests told us you were great and we had a lot of enquiries as to where we managed to find a celebrant that didn't look all 'suit + tie/businessman stuffy' - needless to say everyone said you were well suited to us!
We really can't thank you enough for everything. All the best"
Angela + Ryan
"Ryan & I wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special.
We loved working with you from day one and you did a fantastic job on the day. Our guests have remarked that you were an awesome celebrant, and they loved having Paul & Lily as speakers to set the scene. They also loved that you told them what to do, so you were spot on with both of those points ☺
We were super appreciative of your support, for chasing everyone up for their parts, for helping us to feel calm, for doing a practice run, for getting everyone on the bus and for bringing me my grandma's ring at the last minute :) We searched for quite a long time to find someone who reflected us as a couple, and you were perfect. You went above and beyond Paul - thank you!"
Amy + Dan
"Thank you for being a part of our special day on Saturday. We can’t thank you enough for making everything run so smoothly with the ceremony.
Many of our friends and family commented on what a cool customer you were despite a relatively rowdy audience. ;) Thank you for rolling with the punches! Also thank you for your grace and calm making us feel at ease – your comment to me to take my time really did make me slow down and enjoy the moment (and wipe away the tears when necessary!)."
Caitlin + Andrew
"Just wanted to say I massive thank you for everything you did for us on our big day. From your awesome personality to your kind words and your guidance it was such a pleasure and a joy to get married by you. You made us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day not, only did you make it our wedding so amazing but you made the whole planning process so easy on us and we are so grateful for your help. We are so lucky that we stumbled across you because you were the perfect fit for us and we couldn't imagine anyone else marrying us. You really went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank you enough. We received so many compliments on the day about how unique and personal ceremony was and everyone loved you. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to any couples after seeking a professional and kind celebrant to help them plan their unique ceremony. So lastly just thanks for being so damn awesome."
Jenni + Terence
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so amazing!! It was the best ceremony, we were so relaxed and had such a great time. Thank you so much with your help in the lead up and making our day run so smoothly! Loved working with you!!"
Hannah + Luke
"Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding ceremony, it was definitely the highlight for both of us- which kind of surprised me as I thought it would just be like every other ceremony that we've witnessed, nice but pretty boring. We have had so many comments from friends and family saying they thought our ceremony was perfect, so thanks for getting it so right and for all the help you've given us along the way."
Ranyhyn + Nathan
"Hey Paul, just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for being so damn awesome on our big day - and for totally understanding we had no idea what we were doing. Also for the fact that no less than 15 people rocked up on Sunday to 'clean up the confetti because Paul told us too' will be spruiking your services (confetti organising included) all around town."
Nimmi + Dan
"Thank you very much for everything it was magical day after the ceremony it cleared and sun was shining throughout the day. You did amazing job. We couldn't have anyone better than you."
Eliza + Ray
"We want to sincerely thank you for yesterday, we are so grateful that we had you as our celebrant.
I wasn't there from the beginning of the ceremony but from what Ray told me there was that same initial wedding awkwardness that there is at every wedding we go to. You by simply being you and explaining to the crowd that we wanted a relaxed approach to the wedding one where people could let down their social guards and cheer ended up being the catalyst to exactly that.
We received multiple compliments about the ceremony - and we have you to thank for a lot of that.
The meetings we had with you allowed us to look at what a wedding ceremony is and restructure it to uniquely adapt to us as a couple.
The result, better than we could have ever imagined.
Paul, thank you for going above & beyond, you are incredible at what you do & we honestly couldn't be happier."
Mel + Brad
"Thank you so incredibly much for everything you did for us with the wedding! Letting me email and text you whenever I had a question, always replying super fast, letting us know what to do because we had no idea. You made the whole experience better and more personal than any celebrant ever. I tried to find a cute ornament of a dog in a suit (or a celebrant dog) to give you as a gift, but for some reason it's actually really hard to find ornaments of dogs in suits!? You made everything so much easier and I can't even~ you're just great. Also kinda random but this is obviously a necessary piece of information you need to know - a few of my friends were commenting on the A+ attractiveness of the celebrant, hahaha"
Nicola + Toyah
"Just wanted to say thank you so much again for being an amazing celebrant. We could not have dreamed of a better more perfect ceremony that truly was "us"! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and you created and executed the perfect ceremony. Many of guests have said that the ceremony was their favourite part. We also loved every moment of it. Thank you, thank you , thank you!!"
Sarah + Shannan
"Thank you thank you thank you times a billion for creating such a perfect ceremony for us yesterday! You're amazing and I actually can not put into words how grateful we are! You're the best! Oh man, by far the best wedding I've ever been to haha Kristina has done so many photos so far and everything looks amazing! Everyone said how awesome you were and how fantastic the ceremony was so thank you times a billion!!!!"
Eliza + Dave
"We're back from our honeymoon and just wanted to send you a quick email thanking you for the AMAZING work you did for us on our day. You truly are the best celebrant ever and we're so so glad we found you! Everyone has just been raving about the ceremony and you and were just over the moon with everything really."
Kylie + Adam
"We just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. You helped to create an incredibly personal and special ceremony. You also made the whole experience fun. Thanks for the confetti idea too, it really did look cool."
Andrew + Michelle
"Dear Paul, You freaking rock! Thank you for everything you did in the lead up and on our special day. We appreciate it more than we could ever tell you! You set the mood for what absolutely was the best day ever!"
Britney + Michael
"Just wanted to say a HUGE thankyou to you for our wedding day. Thanks for helping out last minute and thanks for making us feel so comfortable. You are awesome at your job. All our guests kept saying how lovely you were."
Bec + Ryan
"Alex and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our day so special and unique. We loved how fun and untraditional the ceremony was and everyone complimented on how rad you were …You are the master!"
Justine + Doug
"Thank-you SO much for yesterday – we had so many comments from people saying it was the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to. It was wonderful! You've got a real gift for “celebranting.”
Jules + Steve
"Thank you so much for being so awesome!! Your ideas for the ceremony and suggesting we write our own vows really made the day more us and memorable. We really cannot thank you enough."
Claire + Steve
"Lovely, lovely Paul, We just wanted to take a second to high-five your brilliance and say how grateful we are to you. Our ceremony was just sensational and you were so glorious and lovely and stealth. Our guests thought you were bloody sensational. Yes. We think you're RAD."
Renee + John
"Thank you for all of the Kill The Music and Pub meetings, and the hours of deliberation. I’m sure we did your head in at times. We are so grateful to you for helping to make our ceremony so “us”. People are still talking about our vows and how “us” they were. So many happy tears…couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much."
Chloe + Drouyn (and puppy Ponyo)
"THANK YOU so much! I am so glad we were able to have you as our celebrant. It was just perfect. I have had so many guests and family members make comments about how good our celebrant was. Your help with the organisation of the ceremony, both before the day and on the day made the whole thing so easy and natural which is exactly what we wanted from our ceremony.
Thanks for making us feel less gumby about screwing up the small details such as which hand you need to put the wedding ring on, and for giving us new band name ideas 'Supermarket Vodka'.
I know my family were just absolutely blown away by how good our celebrant was, my Dad doesn't give out compliments very often, so it's kind of a big deal :) I know I personally couldn't have asked for a better person to do the job. Your help with letting the flower girls know what to do and for making sure Ponyo was well-hydrated before walking down the aisle was just top notch.
I just wanted to send something to let you know how much we appreciated the part you played in our wedding day, I can't thank you enough."
Amber + Adam
"Thank you for everything. You were great. Have had so many comments on how nice our ceremony was, and how the personal touches were perfect. You did a great job."
Alisha + Michael
"I don't even know how to thank you for Saturday because "thank you" just does not seem to say enough. My expectations of you were high already based on the reviews I had read and our initial meetings but even so, you managed to exceed our expectations. We really wanted a unique ceremony that represented us. I don't know how you do it but you somehow manage to create a ceremony as if you have grown up with us or known us for years. It was exactly what we hoped for and more. Everyone commented on how fantastic it was. It was fun, light hearted but filled with love. We loved the speeches. All I can say is Best Celebrant Ever!"
Desiree + Shane
"I would like to say a massive thank you for being our celebrant!!! Everyone loved the ceremony and said it was so perfect. You made everything so easy run smoothly and it was seriously so awesome. Thanks so much man we really appreciate it."
Casey + Nathan
"Nathan and I just got back from our honeymoon and FINALLY have reception so we can send huge THANKYOU!!! Our friends and family are commenting how awesome the ceremony and celebrant was. For us who had no idea what we were doing it was just what we wanted. We got our photos back too and the confetti shots are pretty killer! A million times thankyou!"
Teneille + Myles
"Thanks so much for everything you did for us!! The wedding went awesome and everyone liked how awesome you were and how different/casual it was. Worked out perfectly!"
Lauren + Toby
"We don’t think words can explain how damn awesome you have been the last 12 months leading up until our big day!! Thank you for your time you legend."
Lacey + Brendon
"We just wanted to say a big Thank you! You did an amazing job! Thank you for help setting up the ceremony! And chancing it out in the rain! Thanks again for everything, it was just a small intimate ceremony like we wanted and we couldn't be happier even though there was rain it adds to our story! We hope you didn't have to get to wet for the rest of the weekend with the other weddings!"
Melanie + David
"Paul! David and I just wanted to thank you for being such an amazing celebrant, wedding planner/co-ordinator and all the other titles you took on for the day! Our smooth running of our ceremony was all thanks to your hard work. Thank you again so much! all of our guests thought you were great also :) the Gockels x"
Kailee + David
“Paul, I honestly couldn’t imagine any of this coming together without you. We had no idea how to get the ball rolling with any of this and it wasn’t until we found you that everything seemed to pull together nicely.
People have asked us if planning a wedding was as stressful as others make it out to be, but the simple fact is, because of you it was hassle free. We chose you because you are different and that’s what we like about you. You didn’t pressure us to do or say anything that we didn’t want to but also we appreciated your input where we were stuck.
You understood that both of us are shy and tailored a ceremony to suit us in a short amount of time so that we were able to maximize our time with friends and family.
I really appreciate all of the time and effort that you put in to make this time in our lives special, totally exceeding my expectations of your job and what you do. You do it so well!
Thank you for everything!”
Brad + Sonya
"When Brad and I began planning our wedding last year, we were disheartened by the calibre of celebrants we had to choose from. We weren’t interested in the softly-spoken, pants-suit-wearing school principal-types who insert their clearly well-worn jokes and irrelevant blather into their ceremonies, which left us with very few selections; that was until a dear friend recommended Paul to us.
We were planning our wedding from our home in Osaka, Japan and, from the get-go, Paul was all too happy to respond to our many emails and inane questioning.
Over the year, Paul has been consistently reliable, professional, and has impressed us with the world’s neatest handwriting; we had a hunch this was a good omen.
Paul won’t insert inappropriate ‘dad’ jokes, as we’ve all seen celebrants do before. He won’t rely on the old, stuffy model of wedding services—always keeping things simple and eliminating the irrelevant, meaningless parts. He discussed with us, in painstaking detail, what we wanted from our ceremony, and made recommendations about how to do things when we were unsure –which was unquestionably a common occurrence. It was all about what our personal tastes, choices, and stripping the traditional prototype back to its bare bones.
Paul offered helpful suggestions for writing our vows and encouraged us to say the things that usually go unsaid. He thought of details we wouldn’t have even considered, which would ultimately make proceedings less awkward and more natural on the day.
He was exceedingly patient, even around our unusually raucous families; and ran through things with everyone, to make us all feel at ease, despite our nerves. It was a relief to see things run so smoothly when it came to the wedding day. We have Paul to thank for that.
We doubt Paul will ever have another free weekend in his life, as we’ve recommended him to everyone we know. Sorry, pal.”
Kay + Arthur
"Paul, we can’t thank you enough for your support, organization, help and understanding planning our big day, it definitely helped to calm the nerves for both of us. The ceremony was better than we could have imagined - just the right mix of personal, sentimental, relaxed and lighthearted. We have had so many guests comment on how it was ‘so us’ and that’s exactly what we were aiming for. Your professionalism and friendship went a long way to making it the best day of our lives."
Trent + Cassie
"Paul was an incredible Marriage Celebrant. We approached Paul to officiate our wedding after previous arrangements fell through and boy are we glad he was free! We felt at ease from our very first meeting and no matter what questions we threw at him, he always responded quickly and professionally. Paul’s calm and relaxed demeanor does not affect his professionalism and he was always happy to offer advice when we needed it and at the same time he took on board all our requests and ideas.
We were after a short and sweet ceremony, though at the same time we wanted it to represent us and our relationship as well as keep the traditional and romantic aspects in tact. Paul managed to fulfill our brief to a tee and every guest commented on how “simple and us” the ceremony was.
We don’t believe that any other celebrant would have been able to perfect our day as well as Paul did, we really couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant and we 100% recommend him to anyone!”
Natalie + Phil
"Thank you so much Paul you were perfect!
You were so chilled yet organised and everyone loved it. The “Best ceremony ever” comment was dropped a few times haha.
Some people thought you were one of our mates as you had done your homework about our lives and knew so much about us and our friends.
You cracked a few funnies, you swore and you had a very unique way of running a ceremony which is why we chose you.
It honestly couldn’t have been better. It was better than we imagined and we thank you so much Paul." Phil
"Thank you so very much for your efforts on our big day- it was more than I could have ever hoped for! I loved that our ceremony was filled with laugher and light-hearted antics coupled with deep and meaningful speeches & vows (oh my gosh- still getting over how identical our vows were haha!). We have received such wonderful feedback from our guests about our ceremony and how our celebrant was bloody fantastic! I've already had to hand your details over for future reference from a few couples haha.
I was very much at ease the morning of the wedding knowing that you had the chapel & ceremony under control! So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!" Natalie
Georgia + Reece
"Just wanted to send you a little message to say THANK YOU! for all your help in making our wedding the best day ever. Both Reece and I actually really enjoyed the ceremony so much and loved the input from our friends, which we would never have thought to do without your suggestions.
Keep up the great work - we will always remember you and your impact on making our wedding day better than we could have imagined!"
Felicity + Mitch (testimonial from Felicity's parents)
"Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did for Flick and Mitch's wedding. The way you arranged the ceremony was nothing short of amazing - it brought out the joy and love not only of the bride and groom but also all the participants and guests. So many people told us during the reception that it was the best wedding they had been to and that was due to you.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks for making our daughter's special day so magical.
Annie and Steve
PS Any chance you'd come to Canada for daughter #2?!
Clair + Mat
"First of all, let me say the biggest thank you for yesterday! Our ceremony was so perfect - so many of our guest complimented us on what a beautiful ceremony it was and what an awesome celebrant you are!! It was a great way to kick off our perfect day! Thank you as well for going above and beyond in so many other areas - from organising our crazy families for photos to helping the florist move the arbour flowers in to the reception!! You are an awesome person, an incredible celebrant and we will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know getting married!!"
Nick + Allyvia
"Liv and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us on Friday and the months leading up. You kept our ceremony, fresh, different and fun. And that's exactly how we wanted it.
Besides all the boring legal stuff you have to do, you have a talent for making ceremonies very special and unique. Trust me we've been to a lot of weddings.."
Alex + Brock
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for yesterday and organising us and relaxing us and just overall being a top person. We are so glad we met you and will be recommending you to anyone we know getting married.
We barely know you but we felt like we were in the presence of friends yesterday and it made our wedding day nothing but perfection.
You made it chilled, fun, and special like we were important or something.
Eloping normally sounds lonely and quiet - but you made it so enjoyable and just brought everything to life!
PLUS I just have this inkling that you had something to do with the very artistic and gorgeous arbour made of branches... I just feel like you did that.
I loved having it there.
We couldn't find the extra cash to accommodate delivery and hire of one on the day, so seeing that, looking so charming in the middle of our woodlands ceremony really topped off the day ... I just CANNOT WAIT to see those pics.
The guys told us how helpful you are at weddings and we saw it when you grabbed the drinks for us and helped get the pine cones out of the dress! Even that just shows what kind of human you are!
Kim + Luke
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for marrying us! You are an absolute legend and made our day so so special! The number of our guests who have specifically asked "where did you find him? He's F'ing awesome" we have lost count! You have an amazing nak for what you do and we are so happy we did manage to stumble across you!"
Holly + Tyler
"Tyler and I really wanted to thank you so much for being our celebrant, you honestly made the day so great and I have had loads of people telling us how much they loved you and how great you made our ceremony!
Nikki + Adam
"We cannot thank you enough for being the raddest celebrant that has ever existed. I have always found some (when i say some, i mean most) wedding celebrants to be a bit of an unusual group of people. My brothers celebrant was the cheesiest celebrant i have ever seen and i had been put off getting married after having to sit through that experience lol.
I had almost every single person ask after the ceremony where we found you, and commented that you were the most genuine and well humoured celebrant they had ever seen. You are so great at what you do
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. To have our vows done just the way we wanted with absolutely zero stress was perfection. You are amazing"
Elliot + Danielle
"Danielle and I want to thank you so much for everything leading up to and on the wedding day!! The ceremony was perfect, better than we ever hoped for and that was entirely because of you!!"
Victoria + Kyle
"First of all we both want to thank you with all of our hearts what an amazing celebrant you were yesterday. You went above and beyond expectations to make our ceremony amazing! (Even leading up to the ceremony and after).
All of the guests told us how incredible and emotional the ceremony was."
Kathryn + Ben
"Well where do we even begin! Thank you for being the raddest celebrant a couple could ever ask for. You made our wedding day even more amazing, personal and unique than we could have ever imagined and we will always be grateful. Thank you so much Paul – you rule!"
Justine + Tim
From the absolute bottom of our hearts THANK YOU for everything you did yesterday!!! It was everything we wanted and more. We had so many comments about our awesome celebrant and even a couple of people who said that they wish they had a celebrant like you when they got married. Thank you for creating the perfect ceremony for us, you nailed it and it just would not have been the same without you! We are absolutely stoked and you are a legend!!!! Thanks also for making sure I ate something haha.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!"
Emillie + Patrick
"We just wanted to thank you one last time for being EXACTLY the celebrant that we wanted and creating the ceremony we were after. Not quite sure how you are able to simultaneously make it a ceremony that was completely about us and everything we wanted, but also had a definite and unique Paul undertone to it. Very cool. You truly have a gift!!!
Also getting everyone to sing happy birthday to Paddy….stroke of brilliance and I wish I had thought of it myself (I might have claimed prior knowledge when asked about it later – I can’t quite remember). Anyways, you are a deadest legend."
Alex + Gavin
"From our initial call with Paul we could tell he was exactly what we wanted! Laid back relaxed and not formal. He made the ceremony about us!
His constant correspondence and help with even my vows was over what we expected.
A number of guests said he was great, best celebrant they had seen and that he made it light-hearted, funny at times but meaningful when it needed to be.
I believe a celebrant plays a huge role in your day and I don’t think we could have picked better.
Jill + Mitch
"Mitch and I honestly cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our special day.
Not only did you make us feel comfortable and relaxed on the day but for all of your efforts prior, they were very much appreciated.
You also went above and beyond to move our ceremony indoors due to the stormy weather and ensured we were both happy and stress free.
We are so grateful that you were a part of our big day."
Gabi + Brent
"Thank you so much for being so incredible throughout the whole process before the wedding, right to the end. We have had endless compliments and comments from our guests about how awesome you are, and how we couldn't have chosen a better celebrant to marry us, and we totally agree! You captured us and our relationship perfectly and we honestly could not have wished for anything better! Brent's also really impressed that I now say "rad" so thanks for that too."
Mary + Michael
"Thanks for making the process of getting married such an easy and amazing task. You are killer at your job!"
Belinda + Dan
"I don't know if we ever really properly thanked you for the job you did and the effort you put in to make our wedding day what it was. We both had heaps of people go out of their way to sing your praises and tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony, saying it was easily the best that they'd attended. And I have to agree with them. From the happy birthday for my brother, to the shot of vodka for Tammy and the numbers game, it really personalised the ceremony perfectly. It was relaxed and fun, and everybody genuinely enjoyed themselves, and the photos reflect that!
Keep doing what you’re doing man, it really is fucking awesome!! I'm so glad you were our celebrant!"
Kyra + Austin
"Thanks for making our wedding day real and honest and “US”.
You are one of a kind and we couldn’t have done it without you (literally). Thanks for being awesome, professional and real. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Roxy + Dan
"We just wanted to take this time to thank you for everything you did for us on the day. You had me stick to my guns about sticking to an outside ceremony and it paid off!
You made us feel so at ease with offering drinks, making us laugh and even taking my shoes when I was stuck in the lawn!
Thank you so much again."
Jenni + Terri
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day! The ceremony was amazing! We were so relaxed with you guiding us through the most important words of our lives.
You instantly put us at ease and made sure that everyone had a smile on their faces. Best ceremony ever! Forever grateful."
Emma + Cameron
"I just wanted to send you a massive 'thank you' for all of your help with the wedding!!! I have received numerous compliments about you, and how personable and professional you were. Additionally how much they enjoyed our ceremony - we definitely achieved what we were after - something fun and relaxed and if it wasn't for you we wouldn't have had that! So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make our day the best day, for your sense of humour, and for going so far above and beyond to make sure the ceremony was everything we had hoped for. Words can't express how grateful I am to you! If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to contact us :)"
Ashleigh + Brendan
"Thanks so much for Friday! It was perfect and everyone keeps telling us it was "us" and how funny / relaxed it was. Exactly what we wanted! You are a legend. Thanks again for everything - it was definitely the best wedding I have ever been too lol"
Andrea + Liam
"Just wanted to say a big thank you for your support on Liam and I's wedding day. You went above and beyond to help us have the best ceremony possible. I can't believe how quick it all went.. I want to do it all over again (minus the organizing)
Lots of love, The Geales"
Nadia + Kristen
"Thank you so much for, our wedding day couldn't have gone better! You made it such a good fun ceremony it was awesome!"
Emma + James
"Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so perfect. You went above and beyond and we feel so lucky to have had you as the best damn celebrant anyone has ever seen."
Tash + Steve
"We just want to say thank you for being a part of our day and doing such an amazing job. Everything was incredible and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. We've had heaps of comments from friends and family about how good the ceremony was, so thank you again."
Ebony + Mitchell
"Just wanted to thank you for everything, you were awesome. You made the day so special, it flowed beautifully. We have had so many comments on how great you were. Thank You!!"
Kara + Tess
"Both Tess and I were so grateful to you for being part of our special day. You were a stand out for us choosing a celebrant and were awesome throughout the whole process. And you out shone with awesomeness when you had our marriage certificate made, which was so fittingly "us". Our gift was mearly a small way of saying thanks for being so rad and helping us bring together that day. Much love Kara + Tess x"
Kate + Christian
"Christian and I obviously had to give you a massive thank you for making our ceremony everything we wanted it to be and much more!
I know you think it’s not hard to improve on how most ceremony's are delivered, but I actually disagree - as I don't think this is something just anyone can pull off with the ease and class that you do. Every single person I spoke to at our wedding really loved our ceremony and as it should be, it was a massive highlight of our day. It's been such a pleasure working with you. Keep spreading the love!"
Marissa + Mitchell
"Thank you so very much for making our day so special! We appreciate all that you have done to make it OUR wedding! Thank you."
Christiana + Matt
"Paul we can't thank you enough for everything. Not only did you do your celebrant thing perfectly, but you made the day what it was meant to be for us. I must have heard "your celebrant was amazing!" at least a dozen times throughout the night, and with good cause. You've found a real calling man, I can't imagine ever having anyone else be there with us and will be encouraging as many people as possible to employ your services in the future. Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!"
Jodie + Greg
"Honestly it was the best day ever!! And it couldn't have been like that if it wasn't for you!! Everyone thought you were a mate of ours and they asked how we met you and how long you knew us for because the ceremony was just so perfect and such a reflection of us as a couple! They thought you knew us for ages. But you just pay perfect attention to your couples and get to know us all so well, you're just so good at your job!!"
Bel + Jeff
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our ceremony was absolutely 100% our version of ‘perfect’. We are forever grateful."
Jess + Tom
"Nothing we could write would ever be enough to show how grateful we are for all of your help leading up to an on our wedding day. You are amazing! You’re truly one of a kind and were such a huge part of what made the day so special...it really felt like we were being married by an old friend.
The ceremony was by far our favourite part of the day, and that’s saying something because the whole day was pretty damn incredible.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day magical."
Nina + Paul
"Thank you for making our special day not as scary as we thought it could be. Rueben (the puppy) thinks you’re awesome too. Everyone commented on how you are the best celebrant ever."
Ash + Ben
"Paul, thank you so much for your contribution to our wedding day. You were our first and only choice to officiate our ceremony and we feel very privileged to have you. We wish you you all the very best with your new family member and nothing but health and happiness."
Carissa + Josh
"Thank you so much for everything over the past year and helping us by putting our ceremony together. We appreciate you for going above and beyond your job and making us feel like our wedding is just as important to you as it is to us."
Leila + Frobes
"Thank you so much for being such an amazing part of our wedding, we couldn’t have done it without you. Your warm, casual style and original approach to planning the ceremony helped to create an experience that we couldn’t have possibly imagined. All the best with your future endeavours as a celebrant, no doubt you will be an integral key to making so many more people very happy on their wedding days."
Suzi + Dan
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your input into our awesome wedding. All out guests commented on how fantastic you were, even helping out with decorating I hear!
Jim + Jo
"Dude. Yesterday was the raddest day ever for myself and Jojo. A massive chunk of that was your freakin’ awesome ceremony you bestowed upon us. You have skills man. We both felt totally comfortable (well as comfortable as we could be given the circumstances) with you at the helm. We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping make the day mind blowing for us."
Ange + Will
"Never in a million years would I have thought Will and I could write our own vows… But I am so glad we did. The ceremony was so personal to us and exactly what we wanted. I often imagine all the things you could get with such amazing persuasion skills! Thank you for making our day so wonderful."
Nivek + Tom
"There aren’t enough words to thank you for your involvement in our wedding day. It was perfect and we know that was because of the continued advice and support you gave us as we planned our wedding day from Melbourne. You are rad at what you do and we couldn't have imagined it without you."
Marlee + Jordan
"Jordan and I just wanted to say again, thank you thank you thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the last 12 months. All of our guests from Saturday commented on how amazing you were, how funny, accommodating and caring you came across - so thankyou so much!
Jordan and I can't thank you enough for creating a safe space, that meant we were able to express ourselves to the fullest - so thank-you again. I was so overwhelmed on Saturday, the love I felt from the room and specifically Jordan - and I know you played a huge part in this."
Nina + Favian
"Thank you so much. The ceremony was so 'us' and you are so much more than just a celebrant, you helped in so many ways, little bits of advice, support, your calmness and attention to detail is extraordinary and it made us feel confident and so relaxed knowing the day would be so much more than what we had expected. Across states, through bad Skype and rainy days, being cornered by my Dad who loves to talk, your amp and our guests arriving late, (I am sure there was more you took care of without us even knowing!) you helped us make the day come together!
It will be a day we will never forget and many of our guests commented on how much they loved the wording of the ceremony and our vows. This would not have happened without you giving us a little extra prompting without any pressure to write our own story to each other. We absolutely know now we would have regretted it if we had not done this even when Favian and I are two of the most reluctant (read: terrified) public speakers you can find, we would do it all over again as that is a moment I will always remember."
Noni + Dave
"Thank you so much for the amazing ceremony!! it was so special for us. We received so many great comments about how you made it really personal for us."
Antoinette + Michael
"Michael and I wanted to thank you so much for your integral part in our wedding day, and for your support in the time leading up to it. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect day, and I couldn’t imagine anyone else as our celebrant, it was meant to be."
Tamika + Oliver
"We just want to say a HUGE thank you for all your help with our wedding ceremony. We couldn’t have done it without you (literally we couldn’t have, legally I mean...) but in all seriousness we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. We are especially grateful for you encouraging us to write our own vows, and being there to help guide us through it all, because in the beginning it was all a bit daunting...You are a top dude and we would happily recommend you in a heartbeat."
Beci + Ryan
"Paul was so patient, kind and made the process really easy for us. We felt quite daunted about finding a celebrant who was a good fit for us and we were so happy we found Paul. He guided us in writing our own vows, words we will treasure always and which were so lovely in part for Paul's advice a...nd input. He is a family man and a romantic at heart (we think!) who made our ceremony lovely, fun and light but at the same time, he retained the seriousness of something so special and monumental for us. He included our baby girl in the ceremony, indicative of his understanding of the wedding being about our togetherness as a family, which was the sweetest touch and made our day. We couldn't fault Paul, he is an all round awesome person and we are just beyond grateful to have him officiate at our wedding."
Sarah + Ben
"We can honestly say that from our first meeting with Paul, right the way through to the wedding day its self, we found him to be nothing but to totally invested in us and 100% committed to helping us achieve whatever it was we wanted from our wedding. Paul got to know us and our story as a couple and helped us create a ceremony that w...as so much more that what we imagined it would be. We wanted a ceremony that was low-key whilst being very meaningful and personal to us. We decided we wanted to write our own vows however being quite a private couple this became a very daunting task. We wanted to get it right so Paul helped us navigate our way through our nerves and find out exactly what we wanted to say. His help, support and encouragement in the lead up to our wedding made everything come together perfectly and we can't thank him enough. Paul remained professional throughout, whilst always being somewhat relaxed and very cool in his approach. This we loved. He helped us keep focussed on each other, nothing else mattered apart from being happy. And that we were. With Paul's help we created the happiest day of our life and we are so thankful to him."
Kelven + Jade
"Having known Paul through Kill The Music, he seemed more suited to our personal preferences and as a result the perfect choice for us. As most young couples looking to get married, we were unsure of what we could and couldn't do as part of the ceremony. Paul's easy going nature and explanation of the legality of what needs, and doesn't need to be said, made it clear and ...took the pressure off. Paul always mentioned throughout the process of planning the wedding, that it was about celebrating the couple and what embodied them as a couple. Heeding this advice from Paul, we received many compliments about the ceremony and how some guests thought Paul was a close personal friend. We couldn't recommend him highly enough."
Sam + Andrea
"Sam and I just wanted to thank you SO much. We were so happy with the way the ceremony turned out - it was everything we envisioned. Our friends and family have all complimented us on the ceremony (mainly YOU!) about how fantastic it was and that it was perfectly 'us'. So thank you for being able to do that for us, we appreciate it more than words can say."
Tammy + Mathew
"Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for the flawless and personal marriage that you provided us with!
We had so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was. You have such a talent!
It felt like an honour to get to know you and be lucky enough to have you at our wedding to officiate.
It has been such a pleasure dealing with you, and I won't think twice before recommending you tirelessly to family and friends!
Take care and best wishes for your new addition coming not to far away"
Mick + Megan
"Biggest thank you from Mick and I! We had a fantastic day. The ceremony was everything we wanted and more. All our friends and family asked if you were one of our friends because it was as though you knew us! It was relaxed, and fun which is all Mick and I know. You took the stress out of the whole boring ceremony stigma and made the start of our day kick start the vibe for the rest of the afternoon and evening!
We loved writing and reading our vows to each other and having our siblings read out their messages meant so much.
Love your work Paul, are you free next weekend? Let's do it all again haha!!
Big thanks from Mick, Megan, Amelia and Archie xx"
Aleisha + Judd
"Champing at the bit to be wed, but largely skeptical and unsure of the wedding ceremony and all it entailed, we were doubtful of finding a celebrant who understood us; who understood that we wanted to say as much as necessary, but as little as possible. Paul’s unwavering calmness and positivity reassured us. He confidently guided us through the seemingly daunting task of writing our ceremony service, and advised us as to what we needed to say, and what lines from traditional wedding ceremonies we could delightfully scrap. Once our marriage celebrant, now our friend, we have no hesitation recommending Paul to any lucky couple, looking to tie the knot."?
Paul + Sammi
" He was so incredible, our service was personalised to us perfectly. The fact that he owns the raddest record shop in Brisbane and knows every song known to man was the biggest plus. Paul actually chose our exit song, a beautiful cover of a City & Colour track because somewhere along the way we mentioned we loved Dallas Green and he remembers. Everything our day wouldn’t have been the same without you Paul, thank you from the very bottom of our hearts xoxox”
