Testimonials
"Your thoughtfulness, professionalism and genuine warm-hearted nature were very clear from the outset. We had many positive comments about you on the night and days afterwards.....about how much you made the ceremony an intimate affair. Everyone could clearly hear and understand every word you said throughout the entire ceremony. You made us feel very comfortable and relaxed every step of the way (as much as we could be lol). Thank you Mike for such a wonderful job in making our special day full of fond memories."
- David and Sharon, Morphett Vale

"I was in the middle of filling out the feedback form, but realised all my answers were Excellent.

We had guests comment how wonderful you were, and that it was the nicest wedding ceremony they'd been to. You made us feel relaxed, and our ceremony was the highlight of my wedding day, thanks to you!!."
- Stacey and Kevin, McLaren Vale

..............................................................................................................................

"Your care and attention to detail remains unquestioned. Through our constant exchange of emails it was evident that you wanted to give a most accurate and caring portrayal of the life of Sally. A true professional is always concerned with the quality of the final product... this was made evident by your level of input and care.

I would have no trouble in recommending that people utilise your services."
- Brenton, re the funeral of his Aunt Sally (Norwood)

"My husband and I found Mike to be both professional, and very personable. He put us both at ease in the lead-up to the wedding and on the day. We opted for a very untraditional wedding ceremony and Mike was more than happy to tailor a ceremony that suited us and what we wanted.

We received very positive feedback from our friends & family on the day who thought that Mike was funny and fitted in well with the relaxed setting of our wedding.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. We really couldn't have asked for a better celebrant."
- Maddie and Brendan, Seaford Rise

"We had so many of our family and friends compliment how good you were at the service and asking where we found you. It was the perfect balance of funny and sweet moments, it couldn't have gone better so thank you so much!"
- Amy & Andy, Glenelg

..............................................................................................................................

"Our wedding was “different” in that we had our young children as our attendants…. But you handled this perfectly. You were not bothered by the fact that during the ceremony we cuddled them, we talked to them, we let them walk and crawl around…. This is the way our family rolls, and we felt that you were very respectful of this. You did not rush us, or them, but rather allowed us the time to tend to them so that we were all relaxed, calm and happy. Our ceremony was just beautiful and meaningful…. Thank you so much!"
- Melanie and Nevin, Encounter Bay

..............................................................................................................................

"We cannot fault your services leading up to and on our big day. We are totally stoked how professional you were but casual at the same time. After our first meeting we both came away feeling relaxed that we had made the right choice in you.

Furthermore, we received so many compliments from our guests on how well you held the ceremony.

It was a great day, your presence and vibe helped dramatically in making the day feel relaxed and casual but elegant and classy. We are so glad we chose you as our celebrant."
- Chris and Beck, Currency Creek

"Absolutely fabulous. You helped make our wedding truly unique. We loved how you were not only willing to go along with some of our silly ideas for the ceremony, but you actually added a lot of value to them! We were very happy with your advice about how we could ‘add on’ to the legal vows so as not to offend same sex couples... We couldn’t have picked a better celebrant."
- Priscilla and Nathan, Kuitpo

..............................................................................................................................

"We really enjoyed the process. The additional follow-up phone calls were great to make sure everything was understood. Thank you for contributing to our day, it was a great ceremony."

"Absolutely brilliant!! So glad we went with Mike. He made us feel comfortable from beginning to end. Even a comforting word in my ear (the groom) as the bride came down the aisle. What a day!!! A bloody brilliant guy and we think everyone should take the time to look at Mike and his services."
- Brad & Emma, Myponga Beach

..............................................................................................................................

"Following the high recommendation of friends, we chose Mike to lead the funeral service for our mother. He demonstrated not only sensitivity around this difficult time but also tremendous talent as both a writer and a public speaker. He helped us write a eulogy that succinctly and poignantly captured our mother’s remarkable life, and then did those words justice with a perfect delivery. His warm, intelligent and personable style was just what we wanted for this celebration of our mother’s life."
- Carolyn, Walkerville

..............................................................................................................................

"From the first phone call you were so easy to get on with and just had such a friendly and professional vibe. You were always great and we always felt like we could ask any questions and just say anything we needed or wanted to say. The way that you worded everything was so heartfelt and you managed to put it together from the bits of minor details you were given..."
- Krysee & Jamie, Victor Harbor
