I just wanted to take this opportunity to say how absolutely fantastic Bev was on our wedding day: January 15th, 2016! She made our wedding perfect in every way possible. We cannot thank her enough for all the time she spent in getting to know us, explaining the process we would be required to follow to get married, assisting us in every way to create our own personalised ceremony for our wedding and, mostly, for marrying us on our wedding day. Her patience, guidance and support were outstanding and the way in which she performed our wedding ceremony was wonderful! Absolutely every detail was covered in our wedding ceremony and her kind, gentle and uncompromising approach to everything leading up to the day and on the day itself was exceptional. She went above and beyond in every aspect of her role as our marriage celebrant and it is with the greatest of enthusiasm and pride that we can recommend her to anyone needing a celebrant for their wedding day. She was absolutely brilliant! Thank you again, so very much, Bev for a truly memorable, beautiful and flawless day!

Dear Bev,

Thank you for the wonderful job you did with the ceremony, we loved how everything panned out and we had lots of feedback about how awesome the ceremony (and you!) was. You have been wonderful and so easy to work with, thank you for listening to our concerns and writing up a ceremony that not only told our story but also delivered in the most amazing way that engaged all our guests.

We are very grateful you were part of our special day, and have no doubt that having you running the show contributed enormously to how great the day went. Thank you again from the both of us, thank you for your contribution in making the memories of our wedding picture perfect. We could not have asked for more, and would definitely recommend you to our family and friends in future!

Warmest regards,
Seha and David Muller

"This is fantastic, I love it all. To be honest, I don't know how I'll get through the ceremony without bawling my eyes out! We wouldn't change a thing with the vows, they're perfect. You have definately found your calling!" Nikki & Karl

After their wedding day...
Thanks Bev so much for such a wonderful wedding ceremony. All of our family and friends have told us how enjoyable the ceremony was and how entertaining you were to listen to. My father in law doubted we would be able to pull off a wedding outside of a church, and later with tears told us listening to your speech about us showed him what a real wedding should be. Just love and commitment. You really went above and beyond and we are so happy with the package we chose. Thanks Bev for officially making us Mr & Mrs Petroff! xo


Bev was such a fantastic celebrant and helped us so much above and beyond her call of duty. We live overseas and returned home for only a few weeks to be married, and Bev made the whole process so easy for us. She walked us through all the requirements and helped so much at the rehearsal. We're so thankful to her for making our day so special and our ceremony so fun. We would recommend Bev and her beautiful smile to everyone!

After reading the first draft of their Wedding Ceremony...
OMG Bev you are amazing, I held off reading it (our Wedding Ceremony) until Kerry was home and ready to read it. I cried the whole time. It was amazing! It feels like you've known us for years! We are both so happy with it and
when we got to the end (the chocolate part) i just cracked up laughing (amongst the tears) and waited for Kerry to catch up and he had the biggest smile on his face, its so us! Thanks so much Bev, you are amazing! I am recommending you left, right and centre for a wedding celebrant (or anything else that you do).

I really can't thankyou enough Bev Handley for all you brought to our wedding ceremony. Bless your heart you are a true beauty. Your grace, your presence, you are a shining star. Your support and love on our wedding day was felt very deep for us. You supported us and you held a beautiful space for us to enter into matrimony. You are definetly the most happy, vibrant marriage celebrant I have ever met. You have found a calling indeed. Your open heart brings such a loving presence through for all to see and feel. You made our ceremony fit us just right, and I love you for that. Ahhh Bev I could get married everyday, what a blissful day it was. I miss your smile it just radiates :-)))) Thankyou for everything xoxoxo


Belinda & Jason Hay


Having Bev as our celebrant on our special day was the best decision we could have made. Bev you made our ceremony everything we had hoped for - it was relaxed, personalised, romantic whilst still having some fun and a giggle and it was truly US! We loved how customised your writing of the ceremony was and how flexible you were to requests and the oh so common bridezilla million and one questions. WE knew right from the start everything was taken care of and we were in good hands - it made preparing for the day that much more stress free having someone like Bev on our team! Thank  you once again for being such a great and significant part of our wedding.

Bev we'd like to thank you for the wonderful wedding ceremony that you created for us. You were able to capture the essence of our quirky personalities from 1700kms away and present them in a beautiful, yet funny wedding ceremony that we wanted.
From the very beginning through to the end, you were approachable, supportive, and awesome to work with; and these qualities made the wedding much more memorable. Thank You!

5 STAR Rating ‎***** <- plus a few extra stars of my own! You made our day everything we wanted and so much more. You helped me so much and nothing i asked was ever too much! Our day was just amazing thanks to you and you helped to calm our nerves. We both felt so comfortable with you on our day and i just cant thank you enough. We met you as our celebrant and i feel that by the end of our big day you were more like a friend. You really went out of your way to make our day extra special. From the unique questionnaire to the late night phone calls you were just amazing. Our ceremony was completely 'us' and you really found a way to capture that and I can not wait to have you at our first Bubs naming day (when he/she comes along) Thank u thank u thank u!

You even took some beautiful pics that we are using in our wedding album... Your service just blew me away Bev XXXX

Hi Bev,
I just wanted to thankyou so much for making our special day all the more amazing. From the moment we met you, I knew you understood what we wanted and needed and I felt I didnt have to worry about anything. All your special little touches along the way, and after the wedding have been great.
We had such a magi...cal day and you were a big part of it (the butterfly that flew by in the middle of the ceremony). You were professional but we felt you were a friend aswell.
Thankyou again for being part of our wonderful day!

Hi Bev,
I was just looking through wedding photos and wanted to let you know what a fantastic job you did on our special day.
You made the whole "getting married process" easy.
From start to finish you were very professional and helpful, which made our wedding plans simple and stress free.
Your friendly and easy going manner made us feel comfortable and you really listened to what we wanted. Our aim was to have a fun and relaxed wedding and that's exactly what we got. The photo of my dad and I skipping down the aisle" illustrates that perfectly.

Thanks again
We have already sent a few couples your way, and will continue to recommend you to others.

Hello Bev.

Jesse and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for helping make our special day, extra special. From the initial planning you were so attentive at replying to my emails and making us feel at ease during the planning of the wedding even up until the very last days (especially given you were moving house). The day itself was amazing, it all went so smoothly (other than the wind that couldn’t be helped) and was all Jesse and I dreamed it would be. The music set the tone and the day just wouldn't have been the same if it wasn’t for your organisation, dedication and devotion in making the day as memorable as it is, we all had fun and we will remember the day forever! The beach was perfect, but the ceremony and the words delivered were sentimental and by far breathtaking. Thank you so much.

Jesse and Lauren Johnston


Hi Bev,
Adam and I want to say a huge THANK YOU for the brilliant ceremony and for sharing this day with us - it wouldn't have been the same without you. You made everything extremely easy and stress-free for us which made getting married so much more enjoyable. The ceremony was beautiful, the whole day amazing, we had the wedding we'd dreamed of and hoped for and we thank you for everything that you did to help us achieve this :)
