Christchurch & Canterbury Wedding Testimonials

Rita was a wonderful celebrant, and was an absolute delight to work with. After all without Rita we would not be married today.

Rita thank you for being so relaxed, at a time when you need calm in your life.

Rita thank you for helping us to write our own vows and make a wedding ceremony that we will cherish forever!! You said we could do it and we did.

Rita thank you for making the paperwork so simple and for always keeping in contact leading up to the wedding to check that we were on track with everything that needed to be done.

Rita you are a magician and made our wedding day so special, we knew where we were going and what we were doing and you guided us and supported us but let our ceremony be a reflection of who we are as individuals and as a family. I loved our wedding ceremony and having our guests warm our wedding rings with well wishes for our marriage and long life together – what a lovely idea.

You are wonderful at what you do and I would not hesitate to recommend you as a Marriage Celebrant.

Wedding for Jacques and Bridget Botha

Rita was our Celebrant in January 2016. We found her most accommodating and helpful. Although she waited almost 7 years for our wedding she was 'Awesome'. We had a small garden wedding at our home and Rita was most helpful with sticking to our theme of low key and family. She also helped a lot with our own vows which we sometimes got stuck on. We found her helpful, caring and loving. It's a pleasure to have had her as part of our day. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Wedding for Jane Fallows

Rita was our Celebrant on 5th March 2016. She was wonderful. Very easy to work with. She sent us some ceremonies and wording of vows so we could work on our own. It was a pleasure to have had her on our day. We both live in Perth, South Australia and we found her on the internet. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs her services.

I would like to give a testimonial for Rita regarding her "Funeral Celebrant Service". I lost my wife to cancer recently, she wanted to have input into her planned funeral. She asked that Rita be her Celebrant. Rita came and spent so much time with my wife, my self and my family providing support and guidance in helping us plan the service and she provided continuing support to our family after the service which we really appreciated. Rita offered wonderful ideas to make the service personal to my wife that included all the family, even the little ones to sign the casket with handprints. She supported us while the Funeral Director came and talked to us. At the beginning of the service to honour their Gran each of the grandchildren lit a candle while Rita spoke of their special memories of her for each grandchild. This was very touching and special. There were tears and laughter, everyone said what a beautiful service it was. Thank you Rita for everything you did for us.

Dear Rita, thank you for a lovely ceremony, everybody that came thought it was fantastic. Although Phil and I were very nervous you calmed our nerves and helped us through the whole process. Phil and I are glad to be husband and wife and are looking forward to each and every day.
Thank you - Lots of love, Kirsty and Philip

Dear Rita, Just a note to say thank you very much for helping to make our wedding day so very special and for your lovely words.

Thank you again, with best wishes, Jeremy and Kate
