LOVE NOTES

from the newlyweds

“Our relationship with Lisa started 18 months before our wedding. From the moment we met her, we knew that there would be no one better to help us plan and coordinate our wedding day. We have never met anyone as organised and attentive as Lisa. We had a marquee wedding on a private property, so there were many moving parts, and Lisa had every detail under control. We didn’t feel a single ounce of stress neither during the lead up to, or on the day of the wedding, as we knew Lisa had everything so under control, with every contingency planned out. As two not-particularly-creative people, Lisa helped us form and curate a vision, and absolutely brought it to life. We have had so many compliments on how our wedding day ran, and it’s all a testament to Lisa’s planning, coordination and conscientiousness. We cannot recommend her enough! Nic and Sonia”

"Where do we begin... without Lisa our dream day would not have been possible! She is an angel. From the very first meeting, she understood our vision and the process was smooth sailing, stress free and so much fun.

 

As a person, Lisa is contagious to be around, passionate, warm, outgoing and highly professional. She takes so much pride in what she does and is an expert in her field. Everyone that meets her (whether a guest, family member or friend) truly adores her. 

 

We invested in Lisa to be our Wedding Planner, Day of Coordinator & Celebrant, and we are forever grateful we chose the full package. We put all our trust in Lisa and did not regret it! Working closely with her felt like she really got to know us as a couple, which was amazing when it came to also being our celebrant. She really celebrates you as a couple and brings her best to the occasion. She gives you her time and is fully dedicated to you and making your day the best it can be. 

 

Our honest feelings are that if you choose Lisa to be part of your day - you would be lucky to have her! She's worth her weight in gold, and we cannot thank her enough for crafting our dream wedding and making our day so special.

 

Thank you Lisa for everything you have done for us & being so wonderful. It been an absolute pleasure to work with you!"

"We used Lisa as our Wedding Planner & Celebrant for our wedding in December 2023. From the beginning, Lisa took the time to understand our vision and get to know us personally. Although we provided Lisa with very limited photos and ideas, she was able to put together the perfect mood and concepts for our day. Throughout the planning, Lisa was so organised and had such thorough and effective communication, I was often left asking myself whether I was missing any emails or if she needed me for anything as surely it couldn't be this easy. She made wedding planning such a joy! Lisa took care of all the finer details (when we were too focused on the big picture) and created a dream wedding day. 

 

As a Celebrant, Lisa was able to convey our life together perfectly. When reading the draft ceremony, we were both in tears and felt moved that someone was able to understand our priorities and what made us click.

 

Every single person at our wedding commented on how wonderful Lisa was and how seamless she made the day for everyone.

 

I could not recommend anyone more as a Wedding Planner & Celebrant, Lisa is so kind, considerate and is willing to go the extra mile for her couples. We were so thankful to have had her and know anyone else would feel the same."

Planning a wedding is a difficult feat at the best of times; planning a wedding from the other side of the world in London… we definitely bit off more than we could chew when we started off trying to do it ourselves.

Via many Zoom calls, many emails and only 1 in person meeting, Lisa was able to guide us, support us and ultimately allow us to have the most incredible day of our lives. Being able to work, understand and even tolerate some of our peculiarities are what makes her so, so good at what she does.

From design to logistics through art direction and even ironing napkins and loading boxes of wine into chillers; Lisa’s acute attention to detail and drive to make everything perfect - was unfaltering. She left no stone unturned and thought of everything and more.

Her services as our celebrant topped all of the project management off, we could tell she’d truly learned who we both were as people as she spoke to all our friends and family. She took the time to get to know the story of how we met and our relationship of 12 years. Our ceremony was absolute perfection!

We really can’t express enough that there is absolutely no way we would have been able to pull off what we wanted to achieve without her. This was our first rodeo but we can’t imagine that there is any way that anyone could do a better job than Lisa.

"Lisa was our wedding superhero. I was stuck in indecision for 8 months, then came Lisa and her mood board magic. We hashed out what really mattered - keeping it chill, connecting and above all else fun. After our chats, planning just clicked. And bonus: Lisa's budget sheet was my wedding GPS. No stress, no 'did I forget something?' moments. The result? An incredible day where we spent wisely and even ended up spending less. As our celebrant, Lisa was like having your older sister who knows the ropes. She's open, warm and above all else patient. Wrangling our rowdy crew? She nailed it. Lisa set us up for success with her organised yet laid-back approach, making our big day stress-free. And even though this was likely her millionth wedding she brought the same excitement as she would if it were her first. Lisa, you made our wedding dreams real - thank you so very much!"

"Lisa was the perfect celebrant for us. To the extent that our guests presumed she was one our old friends from University because she spoke so authentically it was as if she really had been there from the beginning of our relationship. Lisa created an environment where we felt comfortable to share our love story and was engaging and enthusiastic throughout our conversations. We got a sense that she really, truly loves what she does. She was amazing with communication and speedy email replies, highly organised, and always made us feel as though we were her top priority. We had the flexibility to collaborate as much or as little as we wanted on the readings (although it was so well written we barely changed a thing) and she gave us the time and support we needed to write our vows. On the day our ceremony was anything but cookie cutter. Lisa came in confident and reassuring which helped put any last minute nerves at ease. She spoke with poise and clarity and her warm nature was able to bring a sense of fun to her storytelling. We were so grateful for all the extra effort she put in to make sure the ceremony ran smoothly. Lisa really was flawless and was one of the biggest compliments we received from guests."

“Lisa was the most fantastic celebrant and we would highly, highly recommend her to any couple. She picked up on our vibe straight away (even over Zoom as we are London based) and crafted the most beautiful ceremony which felt authentic and personal to us. Lisa was super professional and organised throughout the whole process, while also having a relaxed and friendly manner which made it easy to chat through our relationship with her and ask any silly questions. She was a positive and calm presence on the day, delivered the ceremony perfectly, and guided us through each step seamlessly. Until we had met with Lisa, we were a bit lost about what we wanted our ceremony to look like. Lisa talked us through all the options and created the perfect ceremony for us - it was one of our favourite parts of our big day! We can’t thank Lisa enough and we are so grateful we found her.”

"My husband and I found working with Lisa an incredible experience. Every wedding planner should be organised, knowledgeable and attentive but Lisa is this and so much more! The difference that Lisa brings is tough to put into words. She brought such warmth and positivity to the process, she was always going above and beyond (we were perhaps her first Hindu/kiwi combo wedding and she was so open to learning and accommodating for a new culture) and it's clear she LOVES her job. Wedding planning is a lengthly process and Lisa is the type of person you want on that journey. She made our day so easy and we couldn't recommend her more highly."

"Planning a wedding is a full time job! My husband and I have demanding work schedules, making it pretty stressful juggling work and wedding planning. We were recommended Lisa by one of our vendors and bringing Lisa on as our celebrant and day-of coordinator was the best decision we ever made!

Lisa was so helpful and her runsheet really put my mind at ease. Lisa goes above and beyond, being across the whole wedding, in contact with all vendors, weekly check ins. It changed the planning process from stressful to fun.

On the day having Lisa as our celebrant was so special as we had worked closely to the lead up. Unfortunately on our day it rained, we had a beautiful outdoor venue but we had to go indoors. This was extremely stressful but Lisa took me aside and gave me the biggest smile reminding me what the day was truely about - love. She also reassured me everyone was having an amazing time. Basically said everything I needed to hear in that moment.

In all honesty we couldn’t have done it without Lisa. She is fantastic to work with and have on your team. We are beyond grateful and feel so lucky to have had her with us on our day."

Amber & Trent

"We cannot express enough how grateful we are for Lisa's extraordinary contributions to our wedding day. Her presence alone added a touch of magic and warmth that made our special day all the more unforgettable. Lisa's genuine care and attention to detail were evident from the moment we met her. She made us feel like her only clients and dedicated herself entirely to making our wedding perfect. Lisa's guidance, support, and expertise were invaluable, from the early planning stages to the big day itself. She went above and beyond to ensure every detail was taken care of, leaving us with nothing to worry about. Her warmth and compassion helped ease any pre-wedding jitters, and her calming presence on the day itself was invaluable. If, like us, you are incredibly fortunate to have Lisa as your celebrant, wedding planner, or day-of coordinator we promise you won't be disappointed. Her passion for her work shone through in every aspect of our wedding, and we could not have asked for a better person to guide us through such a momentous occasion. Thank you, Lisa, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. You truly are a superstar, and we are forever grateful for your contributions to our lives."

"I couldn't have asked for a more incredible Day of Coordinator & Celebrant to guide us through the journey of our special day. From the moment we met her, she exuded warmth and professionalism, instantly putting us at ease. Lisa seamlessly blended into our family, making the ceremony feel intimate and personal.

 

Throughout the entire process, from the initial meeting to the end of the evening, Lisa's attention to detail and genuine care for our story made our wedding day truly magical. She crafted a ceremony that was not only beautifully tailored to us but also reflected the love and commitment we share.

 

Lisa's presence felt like that of a close friend, someone who genuinely cared about making our day extraordinary. Her ability to balance the solemnity of the occasion with a sense of joy and celebration was truly remarkable.

 

We were not just clients to Lisa; we felt like she became a part of our family, ensuring that every moment was as special as it could be.

 

If you're looking for a Day of Coordinator & Celebrant who goes above and beyond, who brings a personal touch to your ceremony, and who genuinely cares about making your day unforgettable, Lisa is the perfect choice.

 

We are forever grateful for the warmth, sincerity, and magic she brought to our wedding day.”

"Turns out planning an international wedding is not as simple as one might think! We learned this very early on in the process which led us to the biggest blessing of our wedding - connecting with Lisa! From our first conversation, it was obvious Lisa possessed the experience we were seeking, the organisation we required and an inviting, lovely personality which was the cherry on top. 

 

As our planner, day-of coordinator and celebrant, Lisa had a very deliberate process to make sure we were aligned on vision for the big day while building a genuine relationship along the way. She was always two steps ahead of everything so surprises were few and far between. In the rare occasion when we were thrown a curve ball, Lisa quickly addressed, knocking that curve right out of the park. 

 

She is well connected to all of the top tier vendors and made valuable introductions for us throughout the planning process. For another sports analogy, she is the perfect GM to put together an all-star team. 

 

The big day came and no surprise, everything went off without a hitch. Many of our guests have let us know it was the ‘best wedding they had ever been to’, including their own! Apart from deciding to get married, having Lisa as our planner, day-of coordinator and celebrant was the single best decision we made for our wedding!"

"You make a lot of decisions in the lead up to a wedding, but one of our best decisions was locking in Lisa to be our celebrant. The first time we met Lisa it was like catching up with a friend for a wine and filling her in on all the details of our wedding and our relationship. She has an amazing way of connecting and listening to people, and immediately put us at ease. Lisa's approach to the ceremony was exactly aligned to what we envisioned, and she crafted the most beautiful words to capture the essence of our relationship. She added humour and fun to every step of the process, which made us feel super relaxed during one of the most exciting and anxious moments of our lives. We cannot thank Lisa enough for everything she did to make our special day an incredibly memorable moment!"

Your coordination services extended far beyond just the wedding day - you provided invaluable coordination and support leading up to the big day, which was immensely helpful and took so much stress off our plates. We would highly recommend Lisa's services as both a celebrant and coordinator."

Lisa is so amazing in all that she does, she is super hard working, sufficient and like a fairy godmother on your wedding day, ensuring it all runs smoothly from planning up until the day of, even checking in post wedding to see how everything went. She is so kind and caring and makes you feel like she is your best friend + extra bridesmaid.


We were lucky enough to have Lisa officiate our wedding, her professionalism and positiveness captured all our guests. She perfected our story so accurately like she had known us for years. I can not thank you enough Lisa and so grateful for you to be a part of our special day."

"Words cannot express how grateful we are that we engaged Lisa as our planner, celebrant and day-of-coordinator. Every conversation, every idea, every vendor reflected exactly how well Lisa had listened and understood who we are and what we wanted. No easy task given how busy and indecisive we are. Her work ethic and not to mention price point far surpassed our expectations in the greatest way possible and we will forever be in debt to her for delivering the most incredible event of our lives. In fact many of our guests lives too; as most are already married and didn’t have the blessing, that is Lisa, in their corner! We wish we had more events to plan so we could engage her again."

"Lisa, thank you!!! We are so grateful we made the decision to work with you on our big day, we rate it as our best decision for the whole wedding. 

 

Your organisation is impeccable and our other vendors were all saying how impressed they were with your input, and those who had worked with you before were so excited to hear you were on board for our day too. So many people assumed (and asked us) that we were stressed in the lead up to the big day and we were honestly able to answer “no”, all thanks to you. You took all of the stress away, guiding us through anything we needed to do, really listening to our vision, and delivering on absolutely everything you promised and more. We were also so impressed with your communication, responding so fast on everything and being so proactive.

 

You knew we were uncomfortable with the idea of a ceremony in front of people, but your kindness, friendliness and patience helped  turn that all around. The ceremony you wrote for us was amazing, full of giggles for our guests, and perfect for us. We’ve received so many comments about how lovely and light hearted it was, and our guests really enjoyed it! 

 

You dealt with all of our mishaps on the day (all our fault, not yours!!) like the absolute pro that you are and as a result our day was so fun, funny and memorable, and even better than we could have ever imagined.

 

Thank you so much for being such a big part of our day, we absolutely loved having you with us."

“Lisa… Where do I even start? How about THANK YOU! We are so eternally thankful and grateful for you as our Day Of Coordinator. You were a calming influence under a stressful state of emergency! I knew the moment you arrived on site I was in safe hands and trusted that what we had planned would come to fruition. You had all our vendors well organised and briefed, you worked efficiently and handled all situations with grace and patience. You were present in the background calling the shots and making sure everything ran smoothly and on time. Your knowledge, experience and keen eye helped with last minute changes including changing our ceremony space due to the Auckland Floods. It was such a pleasure and breeze to work with you. You were the key to making our day magical!”

"Lisa went over and above for our wedding. We simply cannot thank Lisa enough for the work and support she gave us. She is the best of the best at what she does. Lisa was our Day of Coordinator, Celebrant and supported the Planning of our dream marquee wedding. On the morning of the wedding Lisa had everything under control, we were able to relax knowing she was outside sorting everything out for us (such as sourcing a cake knife which had been overlooked). We were so grateful to have Lisa standing at the front with us during the ceremony, she scripted a beautiful ceremony and kept us both calm throughout. So many guests commented on how wonderful Lisa was. Lisa we are so incredibly grateful for your support, knowledge and work that went into our wedding - you are amazing! We highly recommend Lisa to anyone planning a wedding, she can help in so many capacities."

Every interaction we had with her has been nothing short of amazing and every time we spoke with her we became more and more excited about our big day. One thing we didn’t realise was that being our celebrant is only part of the role, and on the day she was also a guide ensuring we did everything correctly and kept our cool. How she pulled together the ceremony was flawless and very personal to us as a couple. It’s like we had known her for years. We couldn’t recommend anyone more highly than we can Lisa. If we were to do it all again, Lisa is the first person we would call. She is extremely passionate about what she does and it showed in every facet of her work.

From the first meeting with her to discuss our plans, Lisa's experience and professionalism made us feel so much more at ease. Planning a wedding is complicated, but she gave us incredible advice and support throughout.

She's also an absolute joy to work with - a sentient what was echoed by everyone else who was involved in our day!

She was always on top of things and guided us if we were lost. She nailed the ceremony script in one go which really blew us away! It was beautifully written and 100% us. We were very nervous on the big day but she brought the calm and reassuring presence we needed. Our family and friends loved her! A few even noted her down for possible future weddings.

"We feel so grateful to have met Lisa and had her as our amazing celebrant! Throughout the entire process she was always friendly, approachable and so helpful. She made everything feel straightforward and stress free. We had full confidence in Lisa on our wedding day and both felt comfortable and calm in her presence. Many of our guests complimented us on our ceremony that Lisa crafted and executed so well. We feel we have gained a friend in Lisa and would highly recommend her to anyone in the wedding planning process!"

"We had initially booked with a different celebrant but a few months out they let us know they were no longer available, so they found Lisa who was kind enough to offer her services to us (our wedding day was on her actual birthday and a week before her own wedding might we add!). We honestly believe that it was meant to be as Lisa was an absolute god send. Right off the bat we just clicked with her, it was incredible having someone marry us who seemed just as excited for us as we were. Out of all our vendors, Lisa was an absolute stand out. She went above and beyond for us and made the whole process so much easier. We truly could not imagine being married by anyone else. We are so grateful for Lisa and will be recommending her services to everyone going forward."

"Lisa is one of the loveliest people I have ever met, and an incredible, highly knowledgeable wedding planner - she is worth her weight in ABSOLUTE GOLD. Not only were my three planning sessions with Lisa jam-packed with helpful guidance and takeaways, but Lisa also produced detailed additional resources, including a targeted wedding budget, multiple vendor recommendations, a personalised wedding runsheet, tips for selecting a photographer/videographer, and more! Although I consider myself a fairly savvy researcher and planner, Lisa opened my eyes to many vital considerations I would have never thought of before around things like hidden costs, what to ask when selecting vendors, money saving tips, and key day-of considerations. Initially I wasn't sure if I would have the funds for a wedding planner, but Lisa offers a range of packages catering to all budgets, and you will most likely find that through her excellent recommendations you will save money overall (I certainly did). Looking back I honestly cannot see how I would have planned my wedding without Lisa's amazing expertise - I would have fallen into some pitfalls for sure! Highly, highly recommend."

"Charles and I were a couple looking to have a beautiful, special and modern wedding without a religious affiliation. Lisa was professional, personable and guided us through the entire ceremony! Lisa is well presented, articulate, funny and thoughtful. She is organised, thorough and didn't miss a beat which meant our wedding went off without a hitch. Everything was to brief and having her there really helped when emotion took over! Thanks Lisa!"

"We truly couldn’t imagine being married by anyone else! From beginning to end you were so kind, supportive and organised. You put us at ease, and guided us through both the planning and ceremony process. You created a short and sweet ceremony that was relaxed and that captured us and our story perfectly. Lisa, you went above and beyond to help make sure our wedding was exactly what we had dreamed of and you made the whole process so much easier. You were such a calm and kind presence throughout and we are truly grateful that you were a huge part of our special day."

Courtney & Aaron

Celebrant Services

"We didn’t think that when we were searching for a Celebrant, we would gain a friend, which is definitely what has happened with Lisa. I could write a million things about how amazing Lisa is, but one key thing that stood out was her reassuring smile and calm presence during the ceremony which I will forever be grateful for."

“Lisa is incredible. After lots of changes to our wedding due to covid, we got in touch with Lisa after our initial celebrant couldn’t move to our new date. What a silver lining it was that we found her. Lisa did the most amazing job putting together our ceremony. She listened to Siti and I and captured us a couple. She put this into words and I absolutely loved the ceremony she crafted for us. Lisa made us feel comfortable and at ease and it felt like she had known us for a long time. On our wedding day she was organised, friendly, helpful and all our guests commented on how amazing she was. Lisa you are so talented at what you do and we were so happy to have you as part of our big day.”

"Thank you so much for being the best celebrant ever!!! We can not thank you enough for your work. You were a delight to work with from the get go. Firstly your communication was honestly the best. You were always so quick to reply, super friendly and helpful and went above and beyond. Meeting you over zoom to get to know each other to construct our ceremony was awesome. We instantly clicked with you and felt we were in good hands. We always left our meetings with you feeling uplifted and excited-a feeling that was often hard to feel planning a wedding during covid. You brought so much positive energy to our day. The wedding day itself and the ceremony was perfect. You really captured us as a couple and told a beautiful story, setting the best tone for our day. You are so so great at what you do Lisa and we feel very lucky to have found you!"

Penny & Mike

"Lisa, from the moment we first met you we instantly felt sure we had found the right celebrant. You were so incredibly competent (you thought of everything!) that we were able to relax, feeling confident that you had it all under control, and you steered us through the process with ease. You crafted such a beautiful ceremony and did an amazing job incorporating our Greek heritage - really going the extra mile to make sure you honoured our traditions. You delivered the ceremony with a huge amount of warmth, joy and good humour. Thank you so much for all your hard work to make sure the day was perfect for us, and for ensuring we also had fun along the way. We could not have asked for a better person to guide us as we start our married lives together."

"Lisa you are amazing!! You made the whole process of getting married so easy and stress free. After having to postpone our wedding, we knew that Lisa was one person we didn’t want to lose so we decided to pick our new date based around Lisa’s availability. Our ceremony captured us to perfection and Lisa nailed it on the first draft! We only managed to meet Lisa in person 2 days before our wedding but every zoom meeting flowed & she made it so there was never any 'zoom awkwardness'. We can not thank you enough for being a part of our day!"

“Lisa was an absolute dream to work with. From our initial meeting we knew she was the right person to marry us on our special day. She was genuine, fun, and confident, knowing exactly what she was doing the whole way through. Her story of us kept us in tears each time we read it and her attention to detail reviewing our vows made yet another stressful task, seem very easy.

 

As if she couldn’t get any better, Lisa’s presence on our wedding day was perfect. She was a reassuring aura and made us feel excited, comfortable, and of course less nervous! We would, without a doubt, recommend Lisa to everyone we know getting married, for her professionalism, her authenticity, and her unwavering support throughout this entire process.

 

Thank you, Lisa. We are so proud to have your presence in our story. You made our day so much more special.”
