Wedding Celebrants help provide Relationship Advice, Counselling and Guidance

Did you know that it is a legal requirement for your celebrant to give you relationship counselling advice and help steer you in the right direction?

Sometimes making certain decisions about what you want is not always easy.

Your wedding celebrant is not simply there to officiate the wedding. They are also there for you to provide guidance that will help the event run smoothly. From providing tips and information about where to get relationship guidance support to helping provide diplomatic suggestions and alternatives that you can consider regarding your ceremony and how it can best unfold.

I would love to share a heart-felt testimonial left for me by Elida. We have become fast friends and it was a pleasure to see Elida and her husband have the day they really wanted.

 Just would like to say a BIG thank you to Joanne for our wedding on the 1st of March 2015.

After meeting Joanne for the first time, both Adam and I felt she was the right celebrant for us due to her warm and caring nature. We felt like we were talking to someone we had know for years not a stranger. We also loved her quirkiness as we can relate a lot to it 🙂

Joanne effortlessly made the whole marriage process simple and and easygoing for the both of us and although some meetings were through phone call because of our busy lives, we always felt on track and reassured that things were all in place. Personally, for me I had an issue of picking my father or stepfather that has been in my life since I was 3, to walk me down the aisle. I wanted both of them to have the honour but I was indecisive on what to do because of other’s opinion.

Two weeks before the wedding, I am on the phone to Joanne about this issue, almost at breaking point and Joanne was able to change my perspective (to not care what anyone thinks and do what makes me happy!) and helped me come to a decision that I knew was right all along. Her words of wisdom reaffirmed what I always wanted despite other’s opinions.

Joanne was not just our celebrant, she is and always will be a dear friend to us. Our ceremony was exactly what we both wanted. Lovey dovey but not too much, quirky, detailed and above all, personal and very much US.

Joanne delivered our ceremony gracefully and put a lot of attention to detail. Majority of our guests said there could not have been anyone better to have done the very important task of marrying us.

Thank you dearly Joanne, you made our ceremony very memorable and meaningful for us.

We wish you all the very best for the future.

Elidas wedding - with celebrant Joanne Armstrong
