    Maree's Happy Clients

    some comments from our clients

    Cara & Amalia

    Maree, you are such a caring, thoughtful and warm soul. From the very beginning, you took the time to listen to us and our vision for our wedding day. You gave us so many ideas and didn’t hesitate to answer any of our questions and concerns. Amalia and I kept telling each other how nice it was to be around you and how easily you worked with us. We felt at ease through the entire process and wouldn’t hesitate to go through it all again! You created such a beautiful and eloquent ceremony for us and we are forever grateful to have had you as our celebrant. Thank you for time and your effort in being part of our day and we feel so happy that we got to share a piece of us and our culture with you. We had so many friends and family tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you for marrying us – it was truly an honour to have you there on our special day.dorrigo celebrant CaraAmalia small


    Nicole and Christopher

    Maree made our day come together effortlessly. She made us feel at ease the whole way through.

    She held space for our love for each other in a way that made us feel very safe, took care of the paperwork side of things and helped us focus on the important stuff on the day.

    The rehearsal was a great way to calm the nerves we had of speaking our vows in front of people and Rob handled the timing and music perfectly.

    Maree tapped into our vision for the ceremony with beautiful words and brought calm to the farm.

    The ceremony itself was fun and I couldn't stop smiling. The whole thing was seamless from start to finish. We had no event coordinator or organiser, but Maree and Rob handled it without a glitch.

    We can't thank you enough for what you do and what you bring to a wedding, peace of mind is priceless amongst planning a wedding, it's the most magical way to celebrate each other and the union is made so memorable by having professionals there who have done it before taking the reins and guiding you through it.

    Maree was amazing from the moment I first called her, I just knew that with her everything would be easy and I wasn’t wrong. She was kind, bubbly, welcoming and most importantly made myself and my now husband feel more than comfortable with everything, we were both quite nervous about the ceremony, but she put our minds at ease every step of the way! Her script was beautiful, everything we could have asked for. We had the most perfect ceremony and full credit goes to Maree. We couldn’t recommend her more!


    Corinne and Josh

    Thank you so so much for a beautiful ceremony, it was just perfect and exactly us! We loved it!

    Zoe and Matt

    What a day we had and it wouldn't have been possible without the help and guidance from Maree. Communication and organisation from Maree during the whole process, created stress free wedding planning. Maree bought the perfect amount of professionalism, humour and personal touches to our ceremony making such a special experience for not only us, but all our guests as well. Being a distance away, Maree was always on call and ready to answer any questions we ever had. Nothing was too much trouble for Maree and she took care of everything for us.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony and it's all thanks to you Maree.


    Rhiannan & Jarrad

    Thank you for being an awesome celebrant. We are very lucky to have had you marry us! Thanks for being so flexible due to Covid and such a great person.

    Chelsea and Cary

    We would like to thank you for being such a beautiful presence at our Wedding, making our day a day to remember. The special touches with Rob on the music and the paw print on Crystals certificate to make our dog part of the ceremony made our day extra special. We felt very supported with all our emails going back and forth with the planning for the Vows. I am so glad you and Rob came over the day before and helped us plan the day with the songs and timing of the plans for the day.
    We would highly recommend you to anyone getting married if they want their day to be extra special with a very personal touch.
    Thanks again

    Maree was a wonderful co-celebrant on our day! She was very responsive, attentive and organised. Getting through the paperwork was a breeze with Maree organising everything, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Maree!

    Bek and Levi

    We didn't know much about Maree when we hired her to be our wedding celebrant, but we are so glad we did! Right from the start, Maree gave us as much of her time and energy as we needed to feel happy and confident with our ceremony.

    Maree helped us through the legal process of getting married, and with planning our perfect wedding ceremony. She answered all of our questions and was always kind and supportive. She even went the extra mile by performing our ceremony on a clifftop, despite having an injured leg! We both highly recommend Maree for her celebrant services.

    Jessica & Adam

    Maree did such an awesome job as our celebrant. She made the planning process easy and made us feel at ease straight away from our first meeting. We got to know Maree as we planned the ceremony together and she really got to know us and wrote a ceremony that suited us so well. Several friends and family members commented on how she just "got" us. I could tell that Maree was genuinely so happy for us. We are so happy we chose to have her marry us.

    Jessie & Sam

    Maree went above and beyond to help make our day special and unique. When it came to planning our wedding script Maree made the whole process easy. We had a say in every part of our wedding script, from honouring the people who were no longer with us to the inside jokes we shared. I could not recommend Maree highly enough to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. Thank you Maree for making our day so wonderful.

Our personalised ceremony was everything we could have imagined and more. She captured our relationship so perfectly and brought happy tears to everyone’s eyes.

    Carolyn & Rob

    Maree is calming, lovely and always grace under pressure. Leading us on the journey to our wedding day she was helpful and a kind soulful guide.

    I feel our wedding was more special with how Maree handled everything right down to my little two year old wanting to take centre stage.

    She is lovely and will put a graceful finish on your occasion and I still look back and giggle with what she dealt with on the day.

    We love Maree. She spoke so beautifully. And on the day everyone felt included and her calming smile. She was always pleasant and upbeat.

    She was so versatile and helped us make our little wedding unique, with accomodation changes and tweaks to our speeches.

    Thank you Maree for making a wonderful ceremony and lasting memories that will be cherished for ever.

    A big heartfelt thank you.

    You did a wonderful job as our celebrant and really went above and beyond.  Thank you for making the nerve-racking part of the day so relaxed and easy.”

    Brad & Graziella

    "Words cannot describe the amazing efforts that Maree went to when we presented her with what seemed like an impossible task to put together a wedding in two weeks! Not only did she make sure that we had all the necessary legal documents for our application, but personally accompanied me to the court house to provide backup & support to gain approval for a shortened time frame.
    Maree availed herself to get to know us better & her delivery of our service was heartfelt & in true keeping with our instructions to her, as we wanted a very laid-back affair to include our children.
    It was a very special day for all involved, made all the more special because everything was in place & it could be legal on the day!
    Maree was a very special part of our day, & we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a celebrant.
    We both wish her every success & joy in the future. 
    Our warmest thanks"

    Michelle & Chris

    "Maree is so kind and professional. She was so personable and everything was just all about us. She was very friendly and it was so easy to build a connection with her, we just love her to bits. On the day it just felt as if she was family and we had known her for years. We didn't have to worry about anything, she submitted all the paperwork and even wrote our vows to suit us. There was never an awkward moment and she was never pushy. I could not rate her high enough."
