We first met Ann at an open day for Fergusson’s Winery in the Yarra Glen. We knew straight away that this was the destination for our special day. Upon talking to Ann we felt very comfortable with her and thought she would be a great fit for our ceremony.
We met with Ann a year before our wedding to discuss us as a couple and how we wanted our ceremony to go. She was very helpful in what we should include and provided examples of vows and readings. We created our own vows which Ann had ready for us on the day which made it easy to refer to if we lost our spot. We also had two readings by friends and family. Ann also asked us each to provide her with some things we loved about each other which she would read on the day. We didn’t know what each other had written so this was a beautiful surprise on the day and a nice touch. Ann also met us at the venue the day before our wedding which really helped with the smooth running of the ceremony and I think helped calmed our nerves.
Our ceremony was just beautiful. Ann was very professional in her manner yet warm and approachable, and her heart felt words and well wishes were lovely. All the paperwork was efficiently done so we didn’t need to worry about everything. Ann also gave us a printed copy of the whole ceremony, so we could keep it and reflect. I would definitely recommend Ann’s services as a celebrant, she did an amazing job and made our wedding ceremony perfect.
