Fran and Henry – The Dome, 333 Collins Street, Melbourne, July 2017

Felicity, we just wanted to write to you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most exquisite marriage ceremony we could ever have dreamed of!! We felt like we were in the hands of a good friend. You were so kind, considerate & supportive of us, we felt immediately relaxed in your presence & loved every moment of our wedding! And people have truly not stopped raving about you. We were so sorry we didn’t get the chance to thank you in person before being swept away in the thick of it all, but just wanted to reach out and make sure you knew how appreciative we were!

Much love, Fran & Henry xx

Cassie and Chris, Fitzroy Town Hall, May 2017

You are beyond amazing @fjcelebrant thank you for putting up with us two cyclones. Everyone loved the ceremony, even Chris’s catholic nan said she never wants to go to a church wedding again! So perfect ❤️❤️

And from Chris’s parents:

Hi Felicity,

We just wanted to say a huge ‘ Thankyou’ to you for making Chris and Cassie’s wedding day so wonderful. The ceremony was perfect and the way you officiated was just so special. It was actually the first civil ceremony we have been to and we were blown away by how personal and inclusive the ceremony was. We were extremely proud of them both on the day and loved all the personal touches you encouraged; from high fiving or hugging Chris as the bridesmaids entered  to cheering when Cassie arrived and drinks to go with the registry signing . We have been to a number of weddings over the past few years and although they were all beautiful they were a conveyer belt of ‘in/ out / next!’ Chris and Cassie’s marriage ceremony was perfect in every way. I know they both felt so lucky to have you as their celebrant and we totally agree.

Thank you again for making their day and ours so special.

Hi Felicity,

Just a quick note to thank you so much for being an important part of our wedding day. Everything ran so smoothly, and you helped make it a day that we both enjoyed so much. The ceremony reflected our personalities perfectly, and we both got a lot of comfort from knowing you had our back. We had quite a few people comment on what a great job you did and what a lovely demeanour you have. It definitely wouldn’t have been the same without you.

 

Love Jane and Jol

Janet and David, Abbotsford Convent, Abbotsford, March 2017

Dearest Felicity

Thank you for being part of our special team.  We have loved working with you. You are so on top of everything, responsive, thorough, and so warm.  I remember very vividly that moment you came into the bridal room to see how I was doing, and to tell me it was showtime. That moment felt so surreal. I also remember  me finishing my vows, handing the microphone back to you, and making eye contact with you. It’s those little moments I remember with so much fondness. Really the best day ever.

Hugs,

Janet and David

Oummy and Jeremy, Private Residence, Glen Iris, March 2017

Hi Felicity, Thanks again for being our celebrant – you were wonderful. We used your script (minus the legals!) for our friend to read as the celebrant in our Bangkok ceremony. He did a great job (not quite as good as you, though!!). All the feedback from our Melbourne Ceremony was incredibly positive – everyone loved it and it couldn’t have been better. There’s a couple more in the family who still need to be married, so we’ll most likely call on your services again because everyone was so impressed.

Shel and Dan, Alowyn Gardens, Yarra Glen, December 2016
Dan and I just wanted to say thank you so much for your guidance, organisation, advice, support and calming presence in the lead up to and on the day of our wedding last year. We knew from the minute we met you that we wanted you to marry us and we are so very glad that you did. We loved everything about the ceremony and how personal you made it feel, and so many of our guests have commented on this too. It was incredibly special and heartfelt and reflected us to a T. The speed with which you wrote the ceremony drafts and replied to emails truly put our minds at ease as we knew you had everything was under control and we didn’t have to worry. Thank you so much for all of this and for playing such an important role in our journey together.

Alice and Rowan, Hann’s Creek Estate Vineyard, Merricks North, December 2016

Thank you Felicity for your service to both Alice and myself. Your insight, professionalism and flexibility in delivering the ceremony was first-class. From our first meeting to well-after the ceremony, you have provided all the necessary elements to ensure our transition into a married couple would be as smooth as possible. We were exceedingly lucky that you were willing to incorporate elements of French into the ceremony with limited fuss as it enabled Alice’s family to certainly feel more engaged in the ceremony.

Even with the tyranny of distance (we live a considerable way from Melbourne) as well as our juggling of two energetic, little boys; you were able to provide suitable and relaxed meetings at our convenience not to mention the email correspondence at regular intervals leading up to the big day. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had the ceremony we wanted and it set the tone for the rest of the wedding/reception. Thank you again Felicity and best wishes for the future.’


Emma and Ethan, Alowyn Gardens, Yarra Glen, December 2016

Hey Felicity, as you’ve probably gathered from the huge amount of feedback I’ve left for you here, there and everywhere, Ethan and I were absolutely thrilled on Saturday. You did the perfect job – the ceremony was perfect for us, and something we’ll never forget. So many of our guests commented on how great you were, including my sister who is storing you in her memory bank for future reference.We loved that you really took the time to get to know us as a couple. You were professional, fun and awesome with communication. We’d absolutely recommend you to anyone.

Felicity, Tim and I can’t thank you enough for your fantastic work on our wedding, including the lead up to the day. You were organised and professional from the very beginning, making all that paperwork and planning a lot more palatable!
We really appreciate that you took the time to get to know us from day one – you learnt about us as individuals, as well as how we work together as a couple. This made for a truly authentic ceremony and a genuine celebration of our relationship. We’ve had so many compliments from our guests on how fun and relaxed the ceremony was (which was what we requested), and how you did a really great job. You definitely set the tone for a fun reception too – it was nothing but good vibes really! We will continue to highly recommend you to others.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We love you and all the special touches you bought to our special day  It was elegant, romantic, funny, emotional and filled with tears and laughter (often at the same time!). It told our guests our love story, helped us celebrate what we love about each other and our quirks, celebrated the importance of our families to us and, most importantly, it allowed us to commit to each other in a meaningful way. 
We knew straight away that you were the one for us. You are a lovely person and a wonderful, experienced celebrant. You have so many great ideas – many of which we used.  The process could not have been easier, and the ceremony could not have been more perfect and we owe that all to you. Thank you so much. We could not recommend you more highly.  
Kathy and Matt – North Carlton, May 2015K,M & F

When she married Joel and I in April this year, Felicity was everything we’d ever hoped our celebrant would be. Professional, friendly, easy-going and so comfortable to be around and have a laugh with, it was so lovely sharing our day with her. From day one Felicity took care of everything, taking in our story, words, and feedback and crafting a beautiful ceremony that she delivered perfectly. Thanks, Felicity, we wouldn’t change a thing!

We just wanted to say thanks for being so terrific on Saturday, and in the lead up. You were truly amazing. You were so great at making sure our ceremony was exactly as we wanted it to be – making suggestions along the way, without being dominating.

With lots of love,

Without a doubt the best part of our wedding was having Felis involved. She made everything so simple and fun! With her help, we were able to identify what was truly important to us on the day and as a result, created something so perfect for our personailities. Felis was there every step of the way making us laugh and feel at ease. During the planning process Felis was also very intuiative, sometimes suggesting changes just as we were thinking them. Couldn’t have asked for a better service and feel really lucky to have such a wonderful woman standing up there with us on the day.

Felicity was the perfect balance of professional, friendly and caring throughout the year and was always available to chat/email. Our wedding was perfect and our ceremony was everything we wanted. We couldn’t speak more highly of Felicity and recommend her services to anyone looking for a very special person and perfect celebrant!

We couldn’t have chosen a better celebrant. From our first meeting, you completely grasped the sort of ceremony we wanted and ensured that we had it. It was warm, funny, personal, sincere and not sentimental – everything we’d hoped for. We were in a bit of a daze at the time, so didn’t notice, but looking back over the photos of our guests laughing and wiping their eyes, it’s clear that the ceremony was well received. Thank you so much, Felicity for contributing to a perfect night and, also, for your calm, kind support in the lead-up.

Hi Felicity,
During and sometime since our wedding we had so many positive comments from family and friends about how wonderful you were, which of course we already knew.
As soon as we met you, we knew you would be the right celebrant for us. Your humour, warmth, authenticity and relaxed approach really resonated with us. This absolutely manifested itself throughout the lead up to and during the ceremony, which we love love loved!
We cannot thank you enough and look forward to you seeing you soon to give you that photo we promised!

Hi Felicity,

Just wanted to thank you so much for all the help in the lead up to, and for such a great job on the day; we’ve had a look at some video and the ceremony was really funny, relaxed and “us”, which is exactly what we wanted! The feedback we’ve received has been excellent, one of the best weddings a lot of our nearest and dearest have been to.  So, thank you – we  were very happy with all your fine work!

Dear Felicity
Bandar and I want to thank you for the beautiful ceremony you gave us last week. It was very heartfelt and I know more than a few people nearly cried (the good sort of tears!) I’m so glad we did the ‘what we like about each other bit’; the guests loved hearing it.
There were so many things to contend with at the venue and I want to thank you for taking all that on, and making the decision to move the ceremony upstairs. From what I’ve gathered, it must have been a fairly stressful period before the ceremony and the fact that it all went ahead in such a successful way is a testament to you.  Our sincere thanks.The experience certainly makes me think of the quote, ‘Even the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.’  Luckily we had the plan B, just in case. In the end, we couldn’t have had a more special day, and we certainly have some stories to tell!
Thanks for all your advice and assistance both during, and in the lead up to, our wedding day. You are such a special Melbourne Wedding Celebrant!

Felicity put together such a personal, lovely ceremony for us. We loved absolutely every part of it; it was just perfect.   We had many complimentary comments from guests about how “us” it was.  We were so pleased we were able to secure her services for our wedding and will be recommending her to everyone we know who’s getting married. 
Thank you Felicity!

Felicity was amazing – the ceremony was just perfect. Her approach and professionalism was fantastic. She instantly understood the style of wedding we wanted and more than hit the mark with the ceremony. She also had a great knack of making us feel relaxed and comfortable on our special day and was a key contributor to an awesome day.People commented it was the best ceremony they have seen and a couple of friends have already booked her!

When we first met with Felicity we immediately felt we had found someone who carried the elegance and warmth that fitted with how we wanted our wedding to be as a whole, and by inviting us into her beautiful home we were taken by how genuine she was in getting to really know us and the story of our journey together. 
Our wedding day was the greatest day of our lives and Felicity gave a very personal ceremony that all our families and friends commented truly captured who we were. We would recommend Felicity to anyone and feel confident in guaranteeing that, far from being a ‘one size fits all’ celebrant, whoever you are and whatever your tastes, with care and grace Felicity will provide a ceremony that reflects you and your day.

Felicity is a very patient and understanding person and that’s what makes her such an amazing wedding celebrant. She helped us with our stories (a lot!) and her delivery was so beautiful, there were few dry eyes amongst the guest and everyone raved about how elegant and heartwarming the ceremony was. 
Genna and Tim – The Tangled Maze, Creswick, October 2013Felicity, Genna and TimDear Felicity,Tim and I would like to thank you for the beautiful ceremony you wrote for us.  The day was just perfect.We really loved how open you were to making the ceremony so personalised to us, including a sand ceremony to involve our 3 year old son Jacob. He thought it was fantastic and kept laughing and spilling the sand everywhere.  You made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. I would easily recommend your services to friends and family.
Thanks so much.
Greg and Louise – at home in the Dandenong Ranges, August 2013
We met with five Melbourne wedding celebrants and what struck us about Felicity was how genuine and warm she was. We were having a small ceremony at home so it was really important to find someone who could really connect with everyone, and that we felt totally comfortable with. She made the process very easy, handling all the paperwork, and through several meetings and emails helped us put together the perfect ceremony for us. She is truly focused on what you want as a couple, and while she was full of ideas, made every effort to ensure we ended up with exactly what we were after. She was wonderful on the day and we are so grateful that we chose her to be our celebrant!

Hi Felicity,
Just a quick note to thank you for your spectacular efforts at our wedding. From your super organized preparation, to your sunny and flexible approach to all of our needs, through to your amazing performance on the day, I can honestly say that you were totally fabulous. Many guests commented on how friendly you were, and though we were nervous, your smiling face and relaxed approach made the day the best day of our lives.
I love how you helped us to create the ideal ceremony, and your use of language made for an elegant and easy-going service. Though neither Ben nor I were traditionally focused in our opinions on marriage, upon reflection, we realised that on the day itself, things go wrong, and you can’t have it all exactly as you planned, but if you have someone fantastic leading the show, it can be end up being a monumental event in your lives. We have the best memories of a wonderful weekend that you helped to create with us.
Thank you for everything and do stay in touch!

“As a couple, my husband and I are very relaxed and easy going. Felicity’s style of delivery was perfect to our relaxed wedding.
From the first meet and greet with Felicity, we knew straight away that Felicity was going to capture our story and convey this to our guests in the ceremony the way that was true to us.Throughout the whole process, Felicity’s focus was on us. Her warm and open nature allowed us to tell her our story; from how we met, how my husband proposed and what we valued most about each other. She walked us through the daunting task of legalising our union and made the whole process easy to understand.
On the day the ceremony was fantastic. Strong winds, extreme heat and uninvited harvest tractors did not distract or faze her. Her professional delivery allowed the ceremony to be just as we dreamed.”

“Felicity is a truly wonderful celebrant, and a delightful person to spend the lead up to, and day of your wedding with. She is all over the technicalities, legalities and logistics, and also has great ideas on how to create a special and meaningful ceremony.
Felicity crafted a very personal, warm and unique ceremony for us. We loved her ability to involve humour and wit, yet still create a sincere and moving ceremony that everybody commented on.
The best feedback we heard about the day was “that ceremony was the most like the couple that I have ever witnessed”, and for this we have Felicity to thank.Felicity is able to be relaxed, heartfelt and laid-back, but at the same time import a sense of gravitas and ceremony. We can’t recommend her enough.” 
Olivia and Brent – Sorrento, February 2013(Mark Jesser/ ) Brent and Olivia's Wedding
“Working with Felicity was a breath of fresh air; she was so helpful throughout the whole process. From a legal point of view we had no idea what was required and she organised everything for us!! She went above and beyond our expectations including sending us options for vows, readings and ring ceremonies. She created such a fabulous story about Brent and I that was emotional, heartfelt but witty and funny at the same time, exactly what we were hoping for.
On our special day she was organised, efficient, spoke amazingly well and all our guests could hear her and understand every word, which is rare for some of the weddings I have attended.
I would highly recommend Felicity to anyone planning on getting married”
