We just wanted to thank you for a lovely ceremony.
You made it special and made sure it suited our personalities. Many guests commented on the casual and outgoing way you led the ceremony, just the way we like it.
Our photographer is getting married next year sometime and she asked for your details which I gave her today.
Thank you again!
Aneta and Matt

On behalf of Russell and myself, I just want to say a big thank you for all your help in making our special day come together just as we pictured it.

All the guests enjoyed it!
Hope you enjoyed it, too! (And mums cooking skills ) haha!
From the bottom of our hearts thank you for everything!

We were absolutely unsure about what to expect but actually got so much more guidance & support than I was expecting! Even with things that I knew were up to us, such as vows, we got guided through the process, it made it so much easier, and so much less daunting!
Mario is just such a calm & relaxed person that he made two stress-heads like us feel relaxed about it too! I had contacted a couple of other celebrants who we’re much more forward, almost stressed me out even more, where as I found you we’re so happy to accommodate anything we had in mind, and even providing suggestions for things we hadn’t even thought of, like how we can involve our young kids in the ceremony etc
We appreciated Mario’s experience, peace of mind, guidance, support
I recommended Mario to someone who works for me only a week after the wedding, and she is so excited that you will be marrying her & her partner next year! I am always hearing how helpful & great you have been for her too, so I am so glad that I was able to pass your details on to her
Other than her, I would gladly pass your details on to anyone who is needing a celebrant!
Tamara & Nathan June 2016
Were you unsure about what a celebrant could do for you at your wedding ?
We definitely didn't know how everything worked and the guidance Mario provided could not be found online.
For us it was Mario’s accent and appearance at first and we liked that he was a genuine person and as we mentioned we didn't like the corny jokes etc other celebrants conveyed
Mario also ushered the guests at the beginning of the event.
I would recommend Mario to any friends getting married
Wendy & Tony June 2016
We did not know the extent of a celebrant services. We decided on Mario because he was very organised and easy to talk to. He had a folder of documents and steps to take which made it so much easier for us. He was also located very close to us and our wedding venue which was a bonus.
Mario helped us prepare for the day by providing us with a rehearsal. I think everyone in the family appreciated that as we weren't familiar with some of the procedures so his guidance was appreciated. On the day he made sure that we were both ready to continue and not teary which was a big relief as we didn't have to face the guests in an emotional state.
We would recommend Mario to couples who are serious about getting married and who like to have a laugh at times too to calm their nerves.
Negin & Max May 2016
Mario we decided on you because of your photo and my instinct. Our decision was confirmed upon our first meeting with you where we felt extremely confident with your professional service and so glad of your friendly and calm personality.
The greatest benefit as our celebrnat was your inclusive attitude; your ability to embrace multiculturalism and understand the West African cultural context of our wedding as well as your attendance at our wedding party were greatly appreciated.
We would recommend your services to our friends and colleagues, especially our friends who have crosscultural relationships. Performing artists, visual artists, all creative friends and colleagues would be recommended to you Mario.
Nina & Michael March 2016
Allow me thank you for your generous heart and standing with us during the days of organization and on the wedding day.
It’s true that we didn't know what to do. We tried calling a number of celebrants but they were not helpful up to when we tried again. This is how we found your number on the web and you where so calm, positive to help with the little things we had all time.
We have talked positive and asked many of our friends to come out and be like us . Anyone who wants to wed, looking for a celebrant i would 100% recommend him to you.
Thanks you so much for the humble opinion you gave to us in a very short time we contacted you.
You mean a lot to our family.
Ronnie Charles Kasirye and jemimah kasirye.
We didn't really know what a celebrant could do, apart from marry people and you were friendly, open-minded and informative and these were the biggest reason we asked if you could be our celebrant for the marriage.
You provided information and was quick with responses. You replied within the day to any of our emails or messages, was patient with us when we asked questions or scheduled meetings amd were just straight forward and friendly. All a big plus.
We would recommend you to any who are looking for a celebrant.
Thank you again for your services, Andre & Ludmilla Nov 2015
We didn't get much of a chance to thank you on the day, but we really do appreciate your help with our wedding day! Your professional service was terrific, as was your flexibility. Many guests described our wedding as the best they'd ever been too, and we couldn't have done it without you!
Ramsey and Branka 30th December 2015
Initially we were unsure of using a celebrant, only because we were not very familiar with a celebrant ceremony. All our family and friends had gotten married by a priest in a church and being of a catholic background that's what most people do. Although we felt as though it wasn't for us as it was just a formality and not really focused on the couple, mainly about the religion, which is why we decided a celebrant would be best and would help create a more personal ceremony about us.
We immediately felt very comfortable with you, and got a good vibe. We had met with other celebrants and didn't get that, one in particular was very over the top and really tried to sell himself which we did not like and was not us. You explained how the ceremony worked very well and left it to us to absorb and took the time to get to know a bit about us.
You made it very easy for us and being a very busy and stressful time, it was great. We loved the way you ran the ceremony, the way it was structured. Also the overall feel was very relaxed, which is what we wanted, and also reflected in your personality. I know it helped us on the day! You were also very accommodating and flexible with the way you worked around us the whole way before the lead up on the day. The way you structured the ceremony just flowed beautifully even all our guests kept complimenting it and saying how much they enjoyed it. We felt as though you made it just about us, our story and the celebration of our love. It was perfect!
We would recommend people like us, down to earth natured people. Mario thanks again for all your help and really helping create our special day. We loved our ceremony. You did a fantastic job and are extremely happy with your service.
Melissa and Anthony 8th August 2015
Mario, Lindsay and I would like to say the biggest thank you for the
wonderful ceremony you gave David and Jolene on the 27th June.
Mario, thank you too for the respect and kindness that you showed, Gordon,
my Father. This was a huge task that he took on for such a small part
while battling ill health and I know that you welcomed him in to the
ceremony and that was so special and we are so grateful.
You are a true professional and we would recommend your services
to many others should any one need a celebrant.
Thank you again and we wish you well.
Lindsay and Jenny Anderson
David and Jolene 27th June 2015
Mario, we were unsure what a celebrant could do for our wedding. You lived close to us, you had good pricing, and your last name started with an A so you were top of the list.
We are glad we chose you anyways.
You have a great personality and brought enthusiasm into our marriage.
You drove us to make it more personable. We originally thought to do just a basic signing of the papers with only 2 witnesses there. We are glad you made it memorable for us.
Recommendation ? Knowing your background, you'd be great for any couple.
Julia & Chris 30/5/2015
Firstly I would like to thank you on behalf of Vivian and myself for the outstanding way that you conducted our Wedding day it was very much appreciated and well-spoken about by all that came on that day
I was not uncertain what could be done but I was very surprised at the professionalism that you displayed. The reason for choosing you above others was due to the phone conversation that I had with you, as there was no hesitation by you to check your itinerary to coincide with our wedding plans.
You had respect for those that had difficulty with the language barrier, you were supportive of us all even to the point of wedding date change. I would recommend your services to anyone that requires the services of a person who is very dedicated to their profession, your expertise understanding and most of all the care with which you conducted our wedding ceremony.
Once again thank you very much for all that you did for us we are both very happy and we both have a more extended family now thanks to you.
Always with Respect
Jeffrey Martlew and Min (Vivian) Chen 31st May 2015
I knew what I wanted for a celebrant and chose you when my wedding planner showed me your photo. I liked the idea of the sand ceremony and the stories of what you have experienced. I would recommend you to my friends and colleagues who are going to get married. Or any one that I know is going to get married.
Once again, thank you very much.
Jessie & Ashley 18 April 2015
Mario, Chris and myself would just like to thank you for everything you have done for us.
We had a lovely day yesterday and a very relaxed ceremony all thanks to you, your professionalism and calm nature is what makes everything perfect.
Thank you once again
Chris & Laura McGrath
Thanks once again for being our celebrant for our wedding ceremony. You definitely made us very comfortable and showed your professionalism.
Natalia & Jeremy 29/11/2014
Mario made it very clear and was very organised and prepared at each meeting.
He was also able to communicate effectively, so we always knew what the requirements were. Mario was very approachable , professional and made us feel relaxed. Also he listened to our ideas and gave good suggestions. He was perfect for the role!
Mario enabled us to relax and that we had complete trust in you
We would definitely recommend Mario , I think he would suit all people
Tony and Kath 2nd Nov 2014
A very big thanks for the time spent making the ceremony memorable and easy for us, it was a big relief we were able to work with yourself being relaxed and easy going.
There were plenty of compliments about the ceremony and how well it was run, so thank you for your hard work in helping us personalise it -we could not have been happier having you as our celebrant!!
We weren’t really aware about the process and what was required, it was a big help having these explained to us. You were friendly, easy going and patient!! We did not feel we were being hurried, we were well informed and supported all the way
Well organised and you understood what we wanted and worked on the timing perfectly. You were able to give us direction when we weren’t sure and didn’t confuse us with too many options
We would you recommend you couples and families looking for a warm and personal service, very fitting for any life celebrations requiring a celebrant.
Mario thank you once again for being our celebrant, we cannot thank you enough for your guidance and support.
Mary & Will
Mary & Will 18th October 2014
We chose Mario because of his professionalism and explanation of the process involved in the wedding ceremony. His assistance in writing our vows and creative writing of father's remembrance candle lighting.
Thank you very much again for your help Mario and I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives. I would recommend you to anyone that needs your services with the recommendation to firstly visit your website to get more information.
Nitnoy & Vilay 6th Sept 2014
We were unsure exactly what a celebrant would do for us - we knew that they would marry us, but didn't know what else was involved. We decided on Mario due to his professionalism and knowledge mainly. He was very friendly, helpful and approachable.
We felt at ease throughout the whole process because you knew exactly what we were doing. We didn't have to think of anything because he was always a step ahead, which was great!
I would recommend Mario to everyone I know! For weddings, funerals, baby naming services etc!
Leah & Matthew 14 June 2014
We were well informed at all times dealing with you as you were informative, to the point and not over the top. Other celebrants we met with were over the top.
We got a great understanding of how the ceremony would run, in accordance with legal requirement and I would recommend you to all couples considering having a celebrant in place of a church ceremony. You were incredibly helpful, patient with all requests (despite the fact we changed dates 3 times) and we felt at ease on the day knowing you were there to guide the ceremony.
Melanie & Robert 3/5/2014
arrod and I just arrived home from our 2 week honeymoon and just wanted to say such a big thank you to yourself for making our day so fantastic! We had so many good comments about the whole ceremony and Jarrod and I were both so happy with how the whole day went, it was just amazing!
- Jarrod and I had a general idea of what our celebrant would do. I personally thought alot of the paper work would have to be organised by ourselves, so it was great to not have to worry about any of that.
- You were the second celebrant we met with. We walked out of the first meeting with the other celebrant and did not have a good 'vibe' from him. As soon as we met with you we just had faith in your ability and you were very professional. It just felt like the right decision and we were happy with how you structured your ceremonies.
- Benefits were that you always returned emails so quickly and made Jarrod and I feel comfortable about how things would go on the day. The other benefit was you were happy to give up your own time for Jarrod and I to do a rehearsal. That made it so much easier on the day. You were very flexible and accommodating to what Jarrod and I wanted.
- We would recommend you to all of our friends. The sort of people who are pretty laid back and open to suggestions on what they could do for their ceremony. You always gave Jarrod and I options for what we wanted and we thought that was fantastic!
Everything was just fantastic Mario. I will definitely pass your details on to friends and family of mine who require these services.
Emily & Jarrod 21/6/2014
Just wanted to say a big big thank you for all your efforts leading up to and at the wedding. You conducted the ceremony just beautifully and a number of the guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was.
We will be sure to recommend you!
Davina Calandra BA, LLB
Hi Mario On behalf of Davina & myself I wanted to thank personally you for making our special day, even more special. You are a professional and I just very much looking forward to passing you name and number onto someone who is looking to tie the knot. I certainly appreciate the professionalism and the wonderful way in whcih you made our evening very very special. So thank you thank you very very much Mario you are one in a million . Appreciate it.
Massimo & Davina 28/6/2014
I was not quite sure how to find a celebrant and what the celebrant will do, you were the celebrant for my friend Angie and David's wedding. And they said you are a brilliant celebrant. We didn't find any other celebrant after the 1st meeting with you, because we felt you are the perfect right celebrant we should invite.
Excellent services, fair fees, personalised, you gave both me and Laurence a very confident, reliable feeling during our ceremony on our big day. You are a very kind, friendly, gentlemanly, patient, professionally, on time, responsible person to rely on.
Any friend who's getting marry in the future if they need a celebrant I will recommend you to them for sure.
Katherine & Laurence – 18th May 2014
Mario, you provided such a wonderful, thoughtful and caring touch to our ceremony! thanks for all your support and assistance
Initially, we were uncertain about the whole process, but you made the entire journey a relaxed and personal experience. Your exceptional attention to detail and extra effort to plan and adjust our ceremony to how we had hoped.
Your willingness and open minded approach- particularly to our spice ceremony, we will definitely receommend you to friends and colleagues who are after a personalized ceremony which truly reflects who they are as a couple as you cater for this impeccably.
On behalf of Brenton and myself, we would both like to thank you sincerely, for the wonderful service you provided on our special day.
Brenton & Melissa – 12th April 2014
Though we were aware of what a celebrant could do for us, we did learn a lot about the formality of the ceremony itself though from Mario. Our friends used Mario and we enjoyed their ceremony. Once we had a meeting with him our thoughts were confirmed that you were the celebrant for us!
Mario gave us some great ideas for the ceremony (wine box), and his costs were very reasonable. We felt Mario conducted the whole ceremony (as guests arrive, to goodbyes) perfectly. We would recommend Mario to any of our friends that are looking for a celebrant!
Rachael and Andrew 21/03/2014
We really didn’t know what to expect nor what a celebrant could and couldn’t do for us. You were the first celebrant that responded to us upon our enquiry, on your first visit it didn’t matter to you that we were looking around, you treated us like we had already committed to you. Your professionalism, passion and enthusiasm for your job really shined through and we connected with you instantly. As you know we were so happy we made the decision right then and there to have you as our celebrant.
- Your commitment to us as a couple, not once were you too busy for us, we always felt like you only had our wedding to worry about.
- Assistance with the writing of our vows
- Assistance and guidance on planning our ceremony
- Completion of all the paper work behind the scenes which we didn’t even know about, such as intent to marry and registering our marriage
- Reassurance that nothing could go wrong on the day including a back up celebrant in the event you were not able to attend
- Your efficiency and attention to detail
I really feel that you cater for every need and type of personality, you are very personable and listen actively to all our needs, wants and personalities which makes me believe you would be suitable to all types of people. I would recommend you to all couples that are looking for a celebrant that is passionate like you and cares for their big day as if it’s your own.
Mario – thank you very much for being part of our very special day, we couldn’t have picked anyone better to guide us through everything.
Lidia & Paul 21/12/2013
My first impression of you in our first meeting made me decide to have you as our celebrant, because you were friendly, the way you look and the way you talk matched the celebrant in my mind.
A great benefit was the practice before wedding, so no mistake. Good ideas from you such as the way we walk off the car and show ourselves to the guests. Also you made the ceremony non-tense, easy and fun. You will be my first recommendation to all friends.
Oskar & Chenchao 23/6/2013
Thank you so much for EVERYTHING Mario. You have been so wonderful to us, we appreciate all of your hard work and efforts more than words can express. We were unsure about what a celebrant “does” at a wedding. But after our first meeting with you, we were fully aware and more than satisfied that you were the right person to marry us. You were the first person we sat down and spoke to and even though we were inexperienced, we felt in our hearts that you were going to be our celebrant. You left no stone unturned and made us feel confident, excited and happy about our upcoming nuptials. Rather than feel nervous or sad with emotion like we both felt like we would! You were right from the beginning, we wouldn’t let emotion get a hold of us, after all of our communications and rehearsal of lines, we knew what we had to say, when we had to say. We did not even have to interview anyone else even though you were the first person we sat down to talk with. You just made us feel CONFIDENT. You are knowledgeable and professional, funny and kind. What more could we ask for?
I personally believe that I benefited from you personally - the “one on one approach.” The emails. The texts. There was never no delay in you getting back to me or answering our questions or enquiries and I felt almost like you were dedicating your full time to me. The ceremony was sent to us in full for proof reading and we didn’t stop until we knew we had it right. I appreciate you taking the time in working on my request to mention my Grandmother’s name in the ceremony. That meant so much to me and my Mum is so appreciative. All thanks to you.
I would recommend your services to ALL sorts of people. You are open and approachable to hold any sort of ceremony that represents the people in it. That became clear and obvious in our first meeting.
Renee & Michael 11/01/2014
Thank you Mario, you were absolutely lovely to deal with. Teymour and I felt comfortable with you and you really relaxed us through the process. At the start the reason we chose you was because your costs were very good, and suited what we were looking for. The other reason why you stood out is because you were so open to our cultural requirements and our Iranian celebrations for the ceremony. Overall we will definitely give good feedback on your services and highly recommended.
Teymour & Michelle 14/12/2013
I wanted a male that represented the authority to marry us with a balance of confidence and warm/kind and approachable persona. Mario , you are all these, thank you. You were well organised, confident and I absolutely loved the unity of sands speech. That was so perfect! I would recommend you to anyone wanting a wedding celebrant
Danielle & Claudio 16/11/2013
We were unsure about what a celebrant could do for our wedding but Mario was nice, easy to talk to, and professional. We enjoyed the ability to have appointments easily and he gave us various examples of vows and plenty of ceremony direction. He completed all of paperwork and we would recommend Mario to anyone who is after an easily approachable and professional prepared celebrant.
Aaron & Stacey 25/10/2013
We did a general Google search for celebrants in Brighton. We picked around 6 and emailed them. Mario was the only one to get back to us, plus he was very prompt in replying and we appreciated that. We also like the business name and website. His photos showed him to be a friendly and professional person. We weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. We honestly didn’t realize the preparation of a ceremony was so involved. Mario made our ceremony very personal. He gave us examples and tips in choosing our vows and was easily happy to add whatever we wanted. Very easy going. Mario came to our place to meet us and made the effort to come and see the ceremony venue. We would recommend Mario to anyone and everyone we know! For weddings and naming days.
Bella & Troy 5/10/2013
Hi Mario, we had a fantastic day. And a great honeymoon afterwards. We weren't aware off all that a celebrant would do too help in preparing and bringing the ceremony together with order and in a way which flowed along nice. We chose you after looking at your Internet site and reading the feedback on there. I think that probably the fact that you were flexible and prepared to include whatever we wanted in a way which would flow and so we would recommend you to a wide range of people specially those wanting a more traditional wedding like ourselves
James & Amanda 24/08/2013
Thank you so much for being our celebrant, you were amazing I didnt realise a celebrant could customise certain aspects of the ceremony to make it more personal. You were happy to let me choose what words I wanted and how I wanted to say them. The way you presented yourself in a professional manner and pronunciation of words was very clear to understand - we had quite a lot of meetings with different celebrants and most were very strict on how the ceremony must go, Ferdi and I didn't like that. You were very patient and caring with us also. Within the last month, 6 people I am close to are now engaged. I have recommended you to 4 couples who plan to get married in 2-3 years time, the other 2 couples need a priest. People I have recommended you to are late 20's early 30's and mixed nationalities. Thank you once again, We had an amazing ceremony! Kind Regards
Aleks & Ferdi 27/7/2013
Hi Mario, James and I just wanted to say thank u so much for Sunday. Everything was perfect and Oscar loves his special pen and signing sheet. We loved everything and appreciate everything so much and love how Oscar was included. Thanks again for making our day so special
Marcia & James 7/7/2013
Our timeline was pretty tight and we were pretty clueless about the whole ceremony thing but having met Mario, he made us feel extremely comfortable that he knew what he was doing and that he was a nice person who was going to make the ceremony about us and not the celebrant (which to be honest, is exactly what we were after).
Mario has patience, expertise and a sense of calmness and control and, to be honest, I would recommend his services to anyone who asked. We were extremely happy with his service on the day and could not have asked for more.
David & Adelle 8/6/13
I was very confident in Mario and his professional manner. Everything was flexible and very well planned. He totally understoodd what I really needed and wanted.
I was sure that Mario could perform the ceremony smoothly and well because he was very professional and would really recommend him to young couples because he is very modern.
Tek Snn (Michelle) & Chin 25/5/2013
We honestly didn't know what to expect, we didn't think we would have been been offered so many options for the wedding. We couldn't believe our ears when Mario told us that we could have the ceremony at any place we wanted, that we could add prayers, songs (that we liked), the possibilities were never-ending which made planning very easy going.
I did have the choice between a recommended female celebrant and Mario, but I always go for my first instinct and I'm really glad I did.
Mario you gave us prompt service, very efficient, always helpful and organised. Definitely a service I would recommend to couples who love methodological people and anybody would love how organised you are and sometimes I just can't believe how much you've helped us even if you didn't have to. I would definitely recommend you to close friends or family members. I care for people who are closest to me and I would love them to have you out of all people as their celebrant as I know it'll be made a special moment for them to remember.
Thanks again for everything you have done for us.
Cheryl & Gilbert Palmire 20/04/2013
I wasn’t completely sure of all the details that were covered and organised by a celebrant, such as the types of vows and readings. Mario has a very calming presence and disposition which was what we wanted in a celebrant, his professionalism and organisation was great, particularly as he only does one wedding a day was great too. The cost fitted within our budget also.
The rehearsal was great and really put me at ease. Coming to see us at our own home was great and he was always really quick to respond via email. He was very organised.
We really enjoyed the ceremony and the appreciated the way Mario helped us put it all together. He was very professional and a calming presence during the ceremony. He was relaxed which helped us to focus, relax and enjoy the moment. I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring the services of a celebrant.
Thank you very much.
Kirsty and Stephen Lindsay 23/03/2013
We are quite happy with Mario’s marriage service and the candle ceremony he did for us. Thanks very much again for that Mario. We will recommend Mario to my family, friends or colleagues who needs a celebrant for the big day.
We were not sure what a celebrant could do for us, until Mario told us the procedure. We were recommended to Mario by my friend and Mario gave us professional service and told us what to do step by step.
Cindy (Chao) Meng 20/01/2013
We were already thoroughly guided by Mario about how the wedding is going to take place and what part each of us had to play, and what we had to say. Mario had a very wonderful website and mostly all the needed information was available on the site, and when we called, it was like talking to a friend or a family member.
We would recommend Mario's services to anyone who wants to get married, he was more like a friend or family so it was good having him around and taking care of our wedding, like a family member would do.
Baljinder Singh & Dawinder Kaur 08/12/2012
Mario explained it all very well he was the first celebrant we met with and seemed more than capable of achieving the ceremony we desired. He was very organised. Took care of all the paperwork and details so it was one less thing for me to worry about. He were extremely helpful in setting out a time line and providing suggestions that you thought Josh and I would like. We would gladly recommend you to any of our friends.
Thank you very much again for all your hard work and for ensuring our ceremony was perfect. Josh and I greatly appreciate your hard work.
Kat & Josh 1/12/2012
We were unsure about what a celebrant could do for us as this was a totally new experience for myself and husband. We knew when we first met Mario, that we would like his services as he explained everything very clearly, were very approachable and easy to communicate with. We liked his easy-going and friendly personality.
Mario has great enthusiasim in participating with our unique wedding ceremony. (Rock, paper, scissor's game)!! His kindness was a huge plus.
We would recommend Mario to anybody! We believe he has the personality to get along with anybody, he is a real 'people person' and that's why he is made for this job.
Karen & Otsile 17/11/2012
Just wanted to thank you so much for the ceremony. Everyone commented on how great the ceremony was, that it was lovely & personal and the right length! You did an amazing job & I appreciate it so much! Thanks
Mel & Shane 3/11/2012
We really appreciated Mario's enthusiasm and knowledge in helping us plan for our wedding. He worked with us and explained everything in detail so that we knew exactly what was going to happen. It was important to us that our celebrant would be able to get into the theme of our special day and treasured ceremonies was gladly able to accommodate our request. Thank you Mario and Treasured Ceremonies for your assistance. Your cheerfulness and your professional level of service helped to make for a fantastic ceremony that we will treasure for years to come.
Damien & Rose Stanyer 28/07/2012
I was unsure about what a celebrant could do until i met Mario, and he explained it really well and simple, which made us feel relaxed and stress free.
Mario was the first one to call back on my list of celebrants (FIVE) who i left a message and he came to my place that same evening, sunday at 4pm.
Knowing what to do and when to do it was really helpful. Knowing the importance of the whole ceremony and making it really easy was a real benefit.
We would recommend Mario to anyone wanting a celebrant, he would definitely be my FIRST PRIORITY!!!
WELL DONE MARIO AND TKS ONCE AGAIN AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
Lyndon and Natalie 08/09/2012
Thank you for everything Mario! The ceremony was very special and you did such a great job, we do thank you.
Sam & Trav 1/9/2012
Thank you so much for today. We really enjoyed it and everyone commented on how nice the ceremony was. Thank you for your tireless efforts to make our day special.
Rohan and Birgitte Curtiss 31/3/2012
Mario Anders was the celebrant at our Wedding. We were so impressed with his professionalism and assistance throughout the planning stage and during the ceremony and we therefore volunteered to provide this testimonial as a thank you to Mario. Neither of us has ever provided a testimonial before. Throughout the Wedding ceremony planning phase, Mario was very informative and responsive to our ideas. He was also very proactive by suggesting segments of the ceremony that we may or may not have wanted to incorporate into our ceremony. Whenever we had a query, he was very quick to respond. During our ceremony, he was very welcoming and friendly and he conducted himself with the highest level of professionalism. We had a candle lighting segment at our ceremony but due to the outside wind, the candles wouldn't light and Mario offered to wait around for 45 minutes until the reception was about to start so that we could incorporate that segment inside. We are really glad that we chose Mario as our Wedding celebrant and we would have no hesitation in referring our family or friends to Mario.
Ben and Michelle Dascal 09/01/2012
I just wanted to let you know how great & perfect our day was. We so enjoyed ourselves & the perfect day started with the nicest, friendliest & happiest wedding celebrant. Everyone -the parents/grandparents especially- were so impressed with you & commented on how nice your voice was & all agreed that you do look like 'the favourite Uncle' -my words to describe you to the family before they got to meet you.

Thank you so much for all your help and support with the wedding. The ceremony presentation was great and we are so glad that all our guests enjoyed it. With your help, we can actually remember every moment of the ceremony ( some of my friends told me they did not remember anything about their ceremony because they are too nervous). Your schedule and presentation were perfect and we could not ask for more.

Thank you for making our day special. We came home and saw the momento of the ceremony that you had done for us, and were very appreciative. It is a wonderful addition to the official certificate. We will be recommending you to whom ever we know that needs a celebrant.

As every soon to be married couple knows, the lead up to your wedding can be a stressful and nerve racking time where you start to worry about all the details you have been planning in the lead up to your wedding and whether they will all go smoothly. Thankfully for us Mario's professionalism and high level of organisation meant that we never had a concern when it came to our ceremony. Mario guided us through the entire process ensuring that every detail was taken care of in the lead up to the ceremony, the rehearsal and on the day. Mario worked closely with us in the planning and details, helping us to tailor the ceremony to our individual style and personality as a couple. On the day he was the first person to arrive at the venue which allowed him to set up, meet the venue staff and ensure that they were on schedule also. The ceremony itself was carried out with an air of distinction and warmth, fitting both our choice in venue and our personalities. Through his careful planning and warm and friendly nature Mario allowed us to relax and took care of us at one of the most important times in our lives. I can't imagine anyone who would have performed such a significant role to a higher standard.

Mario, thank you for your role in making our wedding day so wonderful. We particularly appreciated your guidance and advice leading up to the day itself, and for the thousand and one small but pivotal things you did to ensure it ran smoothly. The ceremony was everything we hoped for and more, and truly 'us'. Several of our guests called it the most heartfelt wedding they'd ever been to. Thank you!
Hi Mario. Thank you so much for all your time and effort you put in to making our Silver Wedding Anniversary, at The Kingston Links Golf Club of Sunday 14th August, go so well. Your hard work and advice leading up to the event and then your involvement on the day was fantastic and we could not have had such a memorable occasion without your involvement. Thank you again.
We truly appreciate all your efforts into making our ceremony such a beautiful and special one for us. The ceremony was lovely and we could not have asked for more. Once again, Thank you very much!
