It's hard to believe someones word when you don't know them, so I hope these little love notes from my past couples can help you trust your decision in reaching out and considering me to be your Celebrant.
As I'm not one to talk myself up (cringe lol), I'm beyond grateful for all my little love notes and here are some I wish to share...

Ash is incredible! We can’t recommend her enough! We really wanted someone down to earth, not too serious, who could tell our love story in an authentic and funny way and she was absolutely perfect. Ash was so warm and easy to talk to, it made it a really enjoyable experience overall. We had so many comments from our guests about how incredible and “us” the ceremony was because of how personalised she made it. Thank you for all of your hard work, you really made our day unforgettable! If only we could get married twice :)

As a celebrant she is the perfect mirror - she sought to truly understand us as a couple and wrote a beautiful ceremony that was reflective of us and our personalities. The ceremony Ash crafted for us was as heartwarming as it was lighthearted, with the perfect amount of laughs and tears. She carefully curated our love story and set a magical mood for our wedding day. I will admit at first, we were one of those couples who focused more on the reception, but I can honestly say our ceremony was the highlight of our wedding. Ash is meticulously organised and on top of the paperworks, filings, etc. AKA the actual legal marriage part - she made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing, and we had our official marriage certificate back before we could blink the stars out of our eyes.

There are not enough words in the world to explain how amazing of a celebrant Ashley is. Ash is so genuine, down to earth and authentic and these qualities were highlighted throughout the ceremony. Ashley was so detailed and authentic in telling our story and we could not have laughed or cried harder hearing our love story! We’ve had so many guests say to us that they so enjoyed hearing Ashley tell our story and she certainly set the mood for the rest of the day! I cannot recommend Ashley enough and if you are considering booking her, don’t hesitate and book her now!

Ash was an amazing celebrant. She was organised, fun and brought along a very calm energy in the lead up to the wedding, and on the big day itself. She created such a beautiful love story to share with us and our guests during our ceremony, and the whole ceremony felt just so magical. Ash made sure we had nothing to stress about regarding the legal side of getting married, she was on top of it all. Ash also provided us with a helpful document in writing our vows. Ash also captured some gorgeous behind the scenes footage and put together a lovely Instagram reel that captured part our day. Our ceremony flowed so beautifully. Thank you so much Ash!

I don't even know where to start with Ash! She exceeded our expectations tremendously! We started looking for a celebrant about 13 months prior to the wedding. I came across Ash on Instagram, I flicked through her photos and watched a couple videos she put up and instantly liked her fun and bubbly personality as it mirrors mine and my husband's personality. We first had a little meet and greet via Zoom as we live 3 hours away from each other and we clicked immediately. Myself and Grant said to each other "Yep, she's the one!". Throughout the whole process of wedding planning Ash was so easy to talk to and provided me with support when I needed it. She always reached out to see how we are going with the planning and was consistent with reminding us when the next thing we had to do in regarding signing any papers, writing vows ect. Her incredible organisational skills made it a lot less stressful for us to remember every little detail. Due to living so far away, the first time we met was on the wedding day and omg it was literally like seeing an old friend. Because we were in constant communication and were following each other on socials, it was like we had known each other for years! She kept us both so calm and reassured the whole day and we appreciated her visiting us while we were getting ready to have a quick debrief and run through. All the guests could tell Ash loves what she does and was born to be a celebrant as she performed the ceremony so smooth and effortlessly. It was the perfect combination of funny, romantic and she incorporated all our ideas and love stories amazingly. Ash is a very professional and trustworthy celebrant to have in charge of all things ceremony. Thanks again my love. If we ever renew our vows we'd love to have you there xxxxxx

The wedding ceremony sets the mood for the whole day. It is not often you get a celebrant who relates to you on a personal level from the first phone call. Ash told us at the very beginning that her strongest trait was being a story teller and she delivered more than we could have asked for. She brought laughs, tears, joyous moments into an empathetic story as if she was there the whole relationship. It is unusual that you leave your ceremony wanting to be the best of friends with your celebrant, but Ash made us feel so comfortable and helped create the best day of our lives that we will forever remember.

We were absolutely THRILLED with Ashley and couldn’t recommend her more highly. She did everything to make our wedding day special and memorable! In the lead up, despite us living in the UK she assisted in walking us through necessary paperwork and guided us via Zoom calls. She took time to write a highly personalised ceremony speech that perfect matched our style, as we didn’t want overly formal. Lastly her energy and presence on the day helped us feel comfortable and sure everything would go to plan - which it did. Thank you again for everything and really appreciate all your help!

Ashley was an absolute gem! If you're looking for a celebrant to make your friends and family laugh and cry from joy, look no further (Ash had the groomsmen sobbing)! She made our day so special and we couldn't have asked for someone better to tell our story and officiate the start of our next chapter together. She is so down to earth, bubbly and authentic, and it comes out in the way she delivered the ceremony - absolutely perfectly! Ash, your tips and guides on writing our vows was so helpful and made the process less scary and enjoyable. Both Gareth and I were so happy with our own and each others vows 😊 thank you a million times over!
