love letters

I’ve married some super gorgeous couples

Maddie & Michael

Our ceremony and ‘love story’ were so beautifully written and were a true reflection of us.

We can’t thank you enough for our beautiful ceremony, ‘love story’ and co-ordination. There was not a dry eye amongst our guests during your beautifully written and delivered ceremony.

We are so grateful for all your detail, organisation and care for everything; you made it all so easy for us!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for absolutely everything you did for us and our special day!

Thank you for making us the Lancasters

“We couldn’t imagine having anyone else marry us!”

Genene made us feel comfortable, and confident in her from the moment we met. She is extremely professional and warm – you can tell she genuinely loves what she does! She took the time to get to know us, and helped tailor our ceremony until we loved every part. Thank you Genene for not only performing our ceremony so beautifully but for being such a calm and reassuring presence in our wedding preparations.
Love, Eden & Dan

“Genene has a lovely calming warm energy.”

Genene has a lovely calming, warm energy that we were looking for in a marriage celebrant. She summed up our love story perfectly and curated the ceremony in the exact style that suited us as a couple. The whole process in the lead up to the big day was streamlined and easy.
It was a pleasure having Genene involved in our dream wedding. xx

“You went above and beyond as our Celebrant and the ceremony was flawless.

Matt and I both wanted to thank you so much!! You made us feel so relaxed, even through a stressful week full of COVID uncertainty.  We could not have asked for a better Celebrant!  You were professional, personable, and a pleasure to work with.

We had the best of the best on our team (yourself included) and the day went off without a hitch.  Although I had control issues not proofing the love story – it was perfect and a joy to hear it for the first time alongside Matt on our big day.

We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know planning a wedding now or in the future. Thanks so much!!

Much love
Mr & Mrs Palmer xx

“Genene was absolutely amazing to work with and the perfect fit for us!”

She understood the dynamics of blended families and helped us navigate through and include the kids so they felt a part of the big day.
She made our little intimate elopement feel so special. Her calm presence and confident demeanour was a great support, helping make our special day so memorable.

We  recommend to anyone expecting a brilliant, smooth sailing, calm confident celebrant! Thanks again Genene!

“It was highly memorable for us. “

Genene is highly considerate of her clients and their families in organising, drafting and delivering her ceremonies.

She is easy going and able to adapt to changes on the day and fabulous with young children involved in the ceremony.

It was highly memorable for us and Genene made the process smooth, easy and stress-free and we couldn’t be more grateful.
Thank you, Genene, x

Our ceremony was the highlight of our wedding day and many guests commented on how moved they were and how much it felt like it came from our hearts. Which it did!”

Absolutely loved working with Genene!
Our wedding was one of many that was caught up in ongoing COVID delays, and Genene was so accomodating through our changing dates. She helped us put together a ceremony that ticked all of the formal boxes, but also felt like it was a reflection of who we are.
She helped us to include my partner’s 7 year old daughter – who LOVED it!

“When we met with Genene for the first time, we felt comfortable instantly. “

Genene was an amazing celebrant and my husband and I were so lucky to have her be part of our special day! Genene wasn’t pushy which was a big selling point for us. She communicated with us frequently through email and also met with us in the lead up to our ceremony, she even made the trip out to our wedding venue to meet with us there.

She was very organised and always promptly replied to our emails, which were very thorough. Genene gave us the opportunity to tailor the ceremony to our needs and likes. She also created a wonderful ‘love story’ from questionnaires that we answered privately and it was a lovely touch to read through these after we got married – we are grateful for having that special moment after our wedding day. Genene went out of her way to drop by to see me before I walked down the aisle and made it a point to introduce herself to all the people involved in our ceremony. As my husband and I got married during COVID-19, there were many uncertain things we had to deal with, including plans changing constantly. However, Genene remained optimistic and positive throughout the process, offering her help and assistance where possible. We are so glad to have had Genene officiate our marriage and would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing celebrant for their special day.

“Genene was an absolute delight to work with.”

Genene was always organised and was so supportive. Genene made very clear the legalities of marriage and really allowed us to personalise our ceremony.

We are so lucky to have had a kind and graceful celebrant to officiate our wedding that represented us as a couple. There are no words to express how grateful we are and we cannot recommend Genene enough!!

“Honestly, my husband and I couldn’t thank her enough!”

Our wedding was cancelled last year due to COVID and the lovely person she is let us set another date that suited us which was 3 weeks ago. We were finally married after being together for 17 years and we couldn’t ask for a better person than Genene to marry us.
Thank you Genene

The day was magical and I can’t thank Genene enough for making it so special for us!”

Genene is amazing. organised, beautiful to work with, down to earth, professional. We love her!!! Genene was incredible to work with. I actually didn’t expect the service we received.  It was to a very high standard and Genene made our whole experience of getting married so memorable.

She was organised and guided us through the whole process, with lots of fun along the way. By the time our big day came around, Genene knew us pretty well and that made the whole ceremony very genuine.

“We are so glad we found you to be a part of our day. It was everything that we wanted and more. Neither of us thought we’d be so emotional, so thank you for the little moments of encouragement.”

Genene is amazing. Professional from start to finish and a pleasure to deal with. Genene took the time to get to know us as a couple and find out what we wanted from our wedding day. She was easy to contact and had amazing attention to detail throughout the planning process. On our wedding day, she was a delight to have as our Celebrant. Thank you!

“Genene officiated our beautiful wedding ceremony.”

Genene is a very friendly, understanding and flexible celebrant! Genene officiated our beautiful wedding ceremony and meetings in an organised manner. Genene always checked to see what we wanted/dreamed of and tried to make them come true. However, due to COVID-19, there were many obstacles and changes. Genene was so flexible and helpful during this period and ensured we still got married! I highly recommend everyone to check her out!

“Genene was more than just a celebrant, she became like family.”

Genene was absolutely amazing, she went out of her way to meet up with us on several occasions. She was happy to assist and pick up the call at odd hours to give us advise which was not just about the ceremony but about our wedding in general.

Genene was more than just a celebrant, she became like family. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone getting married.

“Genene made our special day so very memorable.”

 She was an absolute pleasure to work with and did not mind some last minute changes to our venue and ceremony due to sudden Covid restrictions.

She has a warm, friendly personality and was genuinely excited to share our special day. She was in constant contact with us through the planning process and her confident demeanour meant we never felt nervous at all. We recommend her services without hesitation!

She is so lovely, genuine, organised and professional. Genene made the whole process easy, and on the day kept both my new husband and myself calm.

She made the day completely about us, with a personalized ceremony. We highly recommend Genene as a celebrant.

“I highly recommend Genene!”

From the get go, Genene was genuinely interested in assisting us to create a meaningful and heartfelt ceremony for our marriage.

Our original ceremony was cancelled due to COVID-19 and Genene was incredibly supportive and helpful when we had to re-schedule and change our ceremony. 

Genene went out of her way to meet us on a number of occasions and was always keen to hear our thoughts and offer up her own expertise. We had such a great day and that is in part thanks to the professionalism and expertise of Genene. Thank you for everything Genene!

“My husband and I are so grateful to Genene.”

We both really appreciated her professionalism, patience and transparent communication. Working with Genene made the process very easy and any misunderstandings were cleared up smoothly and in a timely manner. 

She is clearly very experienced, organised and takes pride in her job as a celebrant. We are extremely satisfied with her effort and it was lovely to have Genene officiate our marriage.

“From start to finish Genene made it her mission to ensure we had the best ceremony we could possibly have.”

Value for money wasn’t a question, if anything, I found myself saying this is really amazing! With Genene’s work ethic and excitement, we truly have memories that will last a lifetime. Once it was all said and done we arrived home to open our paperwork to find a very personal hand written card from Genene. It’s those small things we often overlook, that on such a day mean the most. We truly wish you all the best Genene.

“Genene was fantastic!”

We had changed plans a few times with our wedding and she accommodated us last minute for an elopement. She welcomed our plans that were a little different to normal and made the day so special. We would 100% recommend.
Thank you again Genene.

“I’m so glad we found her as she is such a lovely lovely lady.”

I hired Genene after having to find a new celebrant due to postponing and my original celebrant wasn’t available.
She made the process so easy and is very relaxed which is just what I needed on an extremely emotional day.
Highly highly recommend!!

“Genene, thank you so much for being a part of our special day, we were very lucky to have you! “

Genene is an amazing celebrant! She was kind, warm, friendly and caring. She has a beautiful heart and is so easy to communicate with. English is not my first language so I was nervous about writing my vows and worried about making mistakes. Genene definitely helped me and made my big day perfect!

Genene is very professional. You absolutely can feel she loves her job very much. I couldn’t speak more highly of Genene. I would highly recommend booking with her if you’re considering getting married.
