Thank you so much Deb.
Received the photos on Friday...please thank Nino. They are great! I didn't even realise he was taking photos. Tim and I are really happy with the whole evening...despite the weather...we would not change a thing about the evening. You did an absolute marvellous job and a lot of our friends/family thought you were fantastic. The evening has been a topic of conversation since, and I believe will remain this way for a long time to come. Thank you to both of you, for your patience on the night and everything else.

Hey Deborah and Nino
(I am so sorry I wasnt there to say goodbye. I just popped out to grab a gas heater from a friends house as it was getting a bit chilly outside for everyone.
Thank you so much for waiting for dad to arrive. we really appreciate it J
Everyone commented on how good the ceremony was. if it goes for too long people get bored and restless (especially me lol)
Ive got a few friends that are trying to organize a christening/naming day and I will be passing on your number - hope you dont mind :)
I hope you guys had something to eat and drink and enjoyed yourselves.
Thank you once again,

We were extremely touched by the words you used during our ceremony, we wanted to kindly ask you if you would be able to provide us a copy. We would like to have it framed so that we can put it up in our house as soon as we get one! Again, we hope this email finds you well and busy making other couple's day as you made ours.
Gurpreet & Rajni
a phone call "My husband thought I should ring you to say thanks for the wonderful service and for the help & understanding you gave us before the ceremony - we will be recommending you to anyone who needs a celebrant"
Thank you for all your help during this difficult time. It was very much appreciated.
Liz & Mick
Thank you. You conducted Mum's memorial service with such dignity and respect. I know it's your job but you did captive some of the essence of Mum. Both of my girls said they want you to marry them. And you turned a day we all dreaded into something special.
Wow, how time flies! I just wanted to send you a short note expressing our gratitude for the wonderful service you provided on our wedding day. We had many comments from our guests regarding the thoughtful, well planned, surprise ceremony.
Above all, you made the process so easy! As you may remember, I was very nervous in the lead-up to the day, but you really did ease the stress you have a wonderfully caring and professional manner. Thank you again, and I wish you well for your future endeavours. Warm regards
We really appreciate all your effort and work you put in to making our wedding ceremony so special. You exceeded our expectations. It was so romantic and magical under the cyprus tress - even with the rain! Thanks again.
Sophie & Grant
I just wanted to say thankyou again for such a beautiful ceremony, everyone was commenting on how great you were. I will always remember it as the best day of my life, we will definately keep in touch xx
I wanted to tell you what I told my partner - I felt like I was your only client. You answered every email & phone call straight away, I am so pleased with how you treated us. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We are still getting great reports. Thank you for everything.
L & R
You did a wonderful job & knowing that it was going to a highly emotional service I did not know what to expect. Thank you it could not have been more perfect.
Just wanted to say thank you for being our celebrant, you did an amazing job and I would recommend you to anyone. You were there for me when I needed you, no matter how many times i called it was never a problem.
Tracy & Shaun L
We have printed some of our wedding photo's so we should come over and show you. I hope you are getting lots of work you did such a great job for our wedding.
Talk to you soon (T&S)
That was one of the best ceremonies I have been to. (Photographer's assistant at Chris & William's wedding)

Deb & Nino
Thank you both for making our marriage possible, it was really a special day, even it wasn't the main event, Matthew & I will both treasure those moments forever. ......it made it so much easier knowing we had already made it official.
(Elyse & Mat)
Also, thankyou for yesterday. It was perfect! Everybody commented on how lovely the wording was and how nice you were. You helped make it a beautiful day (and memory) for us. I am completely exhausted! I'm having a break for a couple of days before I start pulling all the decorations down and return this house to pre-party state.
Our ceremony was unique and obviously alot of time went into preparing it - we will be recommending you to others. S & J
Thank you for your help and care - we needed help understanding and you were there every step of the way.
Thanks Deb for all your help.
