Felicity was a dream to work with. She listened to exactly what we wanted out of our ceremony and captured it perfectly! Our ceremony was beautifully written. Felicity checked in with us at each step to ensure we were always comfortable with what was happening. Even with our day being windy, Felicity provided great guidance and ensured we were comfortable with what was being proposed. We recommend Felicity to anyone!
Words can’t express (seriously) our gratitude to you for steering the way through what could have been an utter disaster with the weather, to a stunning and precious memorable event.
I don’t get out much but I was knocked out by you acknowledging the traditional owners of the land at the commencement of proceedings. I hadn’t seen it done at a wedding before but it was beautiful. And everything you said about the lovely two showed how much time and attention to detail you’d put in to writing the words for the ceremony. You really got those two I reckon. And as for your godlike qualities, we knew you were a wedding angel, but when you orchestrated the weather, complete with thunder and lightning bolts just as you pronounced them married and then calmly invited everyone into the gazebo just as the rain came down in buckets was unforgettable. That really was an amazing few moments.
Thanks so much for being there and doing such a superb job.

And from the Bride via Instagram – “It was the best ceremony ever! Love love love @felicityjohnstoncelebrant thank you for a perfect start to our married life.”
Thank you so much again for all the hard work you put into our wedding. Your ceremony was delivered with such warmth and style. Plus you got some nice laughs. You set the tone of the evening and the rest of the night was everything we’d hoped for and more. We had such a ball and are still walking around on clouds.
Many of our friends and family said that it was the best wedding they had been to! We even had people saying to us afterwards, “ I’ve never really wanted to get married but after seeing this wedding I feel like I want this too”. So thumbs up all around!
Felicity was the perfect marriage celebrant for us. She was relaxed and so friendly. Felicity took the time to get to know us and what we wanted in our wedding ceremony. Needless to say, our ceremony was a true representation of us. She walked us patiently through every step of the marriage process which made it much less daunting. If you’re after a lovely, thoughtful celebrant who will make your ceremony perfect and personal, Felicity is for you!

Hi Felicity, We just wanted to say how absolutely thrilled with the ceremony and how it went. I can’t even tell you how many people commented to us afterwards about how fantastic it was – I’m sure that’s a rarity for the ceremony to be a real highlight but it certainly was, so personal and romantic and just perfect!
Michael and I literally had the greatest day! Everything was spot on! We had so much fun… We made sure we had some one on one time together, we ate soooo much food, we drank an ample amount and danced heartily! On the honeymoon we both agreed that our only regret was that it was our wedding, because we reckon it would’ve been so much fun to have been a guest at it hahah!
Everybody we’ve spoken to has insisted its the best wedding they’ve been too. I’m incredibly happy and proud of how the day came together… It was literally everything we had hoped for and then some!
You were truly wonderful to work with, you made everything so easy for us, and your advice and help along the way was incredibly valued! We have had an abundance of compliments specifically about you, and everyone loved how personal and ‘us’ the ceremony was… It was such the perfect mix of love and LOL’s
Thanks again for all your help! You’re one in a million!
Oh Felicity, Thank you for so much for everything. Ian and I were overwhelmed by how many of our friends commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was. There were many compliments on YOU, ticking all the boxes of things you mentioned pre wedding -not too long, bit of background, light and breezy, audience participation, and your relaxed, easy going personality.
Whilst I remember very little of the whole evening (?!) I do remember everyone commenting on how beautiful everything was, so thank you so much.
Thank you again for being part of our wedding day. From the moment we started speaking with you over the phone we knew we wanted to work with you (we didn’t even need to meet face to face for that!) we instantly felt like we knew you, and you understood what we wanted straight away. You made the whole process so easy and simple, explained everything so well and kept us calm and relaxed throughout. We had SO many compliments about the ceremony and about you in particular – everyone said it was so well written and spoken, and funny and personal. Everything we wanted. Thank you again.
Oh Felicity, you were perfect! You gave us everything we wanted from the wedding ceremony. You spoke really well and clearly – too often people rush through 😊
As Will just said to me, if you’re lucky, you only get one shot at a wedding in life, and he (we!) are really thrilled with how ours turned out – the ceremony was a really important part of that, so thanks for doing such an amazing job 🙂
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
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:
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.
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
We just wanted to take a moment to send you a message of thanks for your role in our wedding day on Saturday.
We had a truly wonderful day and we believe you played an integral role in making it a success. Your warmth and flexibility and genuine interest in understanding the essence of what our day was about left us feeling relaxed throughout the whole process.
Many of our friends and family members commented on how perfect the tone of the ceremony was. Due to your professionalism and supportive nature we were able to achieve this.
If word or mouth counts for anything we will only have ringing words of endorsement for your services.
Lani and Anthony
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.
Janet and David
I’m very sorry it’s taken us so long to contact you to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU for being such an amazing celebrant on our wedding day.
As you can imagine getting married a lot of people offered a lot of suggestions and advice – you being recommend to us as a celebrant was one of the best pieces of advice we received!
Not only did you tailor the ceremony to fit our style you made everything very easy and simply to follow, you guided us through the whole process and answered all our questions without making us feel we were hassling you. The feedback from our guest about the way you held the ceremony was amazing, you keep it fun and flowing and was perfect for a garden wedding. I have no doubt if we wanted a more formal wedding you would have been just as brilliant.
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.
Dear Felicity, Thank you very much for being such a special part of our wedding day. We had the best time, and it definitely would not have been the same without you. The ceremony went so smoothly, largely because you were so organised and calm, and because you spoke with such honesty and humour.
We are very grateful for the role you played in our day. Thank you again for being so friendly and easy to work with.
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.’
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 so much for creating an amazing ceremony for our special day. You created such a wonderfull
We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a unique and personal ceremony.
Thank you again,
James and Mara
Felicity, thank you so much for being a part of our day. You made both Heath and I extremely comfortable and at ease from our first meeting. You understood our personalities and relationship straight away and were able to write a ceremony that reflected us. The process could not have been smoother, you were both professional and friendly and we were incredibly happy with the service you provided. Thank you for everything, Heath and Britt xx’
Thank you once again for such an amazing ceremony. We loved every minute of it. It was exactly what we wanted. We’ve had quite a few people tell us it was the best ceremony they have ever been to.
Thank you so much for being a wonderful celebrant, who we thoroughly enjoyed “working” with (although it didn’t feel like work at all!). We’ve had many compliments on our celebrant and ceremony – you were the perfect fit for us. We’re so pleased we found you.
Nick and Carolyn.
Thank you again for the wonderful ceremony and all of your help in the lead up to our special day. We were thrilled with the day, of which your ceremony was a key contributor. We thought it was beautifully done, it felt very personal and we could not be happier.
Georgia and Philip
Jonathan and I were going through our photos and reflecting on how much we enjoyed our wedding. We owe a lot of that to you. I hope this is not the only Quaker ceremony you ever do.We both think you did a fantastic job keeping the ceremony running smoothly, especially since it was a bit out of the ordinary. So thanks so much for helping us to make it a special day, we really appreciate it.
All the best for your future ceremonies, we will be sure to recommend you to our friends in the future!
Hey there, Felicity
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Sunday, everyone said what a meaningful & lovely ceremony it was, with lovely words. It meant so much to us at how personal it was.

Amy and Nick – Epocha Restaurant, Carlton, June 2014
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.
Will and Jade – Crittenden Estate, Dromana, March 2014
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!
