Michael married me and my hubby on March 9th. We couldn’t of asked for a better person to make our day perfect.

From the moment we met Michael we knew he was everything we were looking for in a celebrant. He captured our relationship perfectly and made our ceremony all that more beautiful

Michael is brilliant to work with, he is passionate about his role in your wedding and he is very laid back. He makes everyone laugh and have fun while making the day magical

Thank you Michael for marrying us and sharing in our beautiful day that we will treasure forever

Letters & Messages of Thanks

here are just a few

Thank you so much Michael. 

We could not have had a better day and you did such a wonderful delivery of our ceremony-- many of our guests commented on how great and personable you are. 

Also, I (Amanda) realised just how soothing your voice is (when we had our rehearsal) you (and your voice!) really helped to calm my nerves in the lead up to it. 

Thank you for all of your preparation too. 

We plan to give our parents a copy of the ceremony so thank you for sending it through to us.  

You will always be held in a special place of our memories. Thank you so very much. 

All the best to you and your family.

Hi Michael, 

Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts.

As you are well aware the week before the big day was a very hard and tiring time for the both of us.  In the end your help with the rehearsal and the backup plan worked wonders.  Simply knowing we had the backup plan gave John the strength to do the rehearsal and then in turn he realised he could do the wedding.

Everyone has said how incredible you were, your manner, your voice, your care.  According to my family you were the best celebrant they had ever seen, my brothers had even wished they had known about you when they got married.

I can't thank you enough for your help in making our wedding day the incredible day it was.  You are awesome!

If anyone asks in the future I will definitely recommend you.


Michael, thanks so much for your work on our ceremony before, and on the day. 

We had a ball. After the ceremony the meal, photos, speeches, games and dancing was all just FANTASTIC. 

Lots of people mentioned how great the ceremony was. Nice and relaxed, warm and friendly - which is what we wanted more than anything.

Thank you so much and we appreciate your flexibility and sense of humour when it came to working with unpredictable animals and small children.

We've watched a video of the ceremony and it was just great - also the PA and volume was perfect.

We have been to other ceremonies where this has not worked so well, especially when it comes to the vows, (in terms of repeating sentences/bad sound/no mike), so we were just so pleased that this important moment was so wonderfully done.  

Thank you!!
Jacqueline and Troy (and Balin)

Hi Michael, 


We are still basking in the joy & love from our special day. 

We would like to send you our deepest gratitude for a wonderful ceremony, we have had many of our guest & relatives come forward with nothing but praise & lovely comments about your service. 

Gary & l would personally like to thank you  for all that you have done for us both we felt it was a great day, and went off very successfully. 

It has been an absolute pleasure to know you and we hope to see you again one day. 


Kindest Regards Lyn & Gary Williams

Choosing a wedding celebrant was a job that prior to our wedding seemed like another task on the list of many things that we had to consider. What if we didn't like them? What if it was all about them and their ego? What if they didn't look the part? Our wedding photos from the ceremony could be ruined??!! Thank fully, this most certainly wasn't our experience.


From the time we sat down with Michael at our initial meet and greet, we were both immediately at ease. The way he listened to what it was that we wanted for our ceremony and the unobtrusive nature in which he made some suggestions and conducted himself at both the initial meeting, subsequent meetings and again on our "big day" was something we will both remember for many years to come.


We would highly recommend this consummate professional for your "big day."

Thanks again Michael,

Keith and Emily Girvin

Hi Michael

What can we say. Finding Chateau Dore and then meeting you on that open night was no mistake. The job you did was simply perfect and you were such a calming influence which really allowed us to soak in the ceremony and enjoy it. We both remember (most of it) properly rather than it being a blur and we have you to thank for that!

In the short time we have known you, we felt like you really got to know us as people and therefore were able to tell our story like a friend. We also wanted to thank you for your patience on Friday night. In the end it was perfect and everything we could have ever wanted. Thank you Michael for the role you played on our special day and leading up to it, and for officially making us Mr and Mrs Sherwood. 

Our warmest regards

Hayden and Rani Sherwood
