Lissa has just been the best! When we first met her we just know that she is the one we would like to be our celebrant. She really believes in the value and importance of marriage me and Sam both believed in. She makes it a point to always focus on what we want and how we would like things to be, and we could not have it any other way. She carefully puts all of our feelings and emotions into words(which is definitely hard at this exciting times). She guides you in every step of the way and would always be there to help. Our wedding ceremony is quite different because of our Kiwi and Filipino traditions. Lissa was able to work her way around it, making our ceremony a unique and memorable one, not only for us but for all of our family and friends. Thank you so much, Lissa for being the best at what you do!

We’ve never gotten married before, so it was all new to us! Since we’re non-traditional people, we had a blank slate and really didn’t know where to start. Lissa was able to help us weave in aspects of our heritage, while crafting a ceremony that was deeply personal. Her guidance around writing our own vows was especially helpful. Lissa matches her expertise with discovering what makes every wedding unique. There’s a lot on your plate when planning a wedding, but Lissa made us feel like the ceremony was totally sorted and stress-free.

Lissa really helped make our wedding ceremony special. We wouldn’t have done it with anyone else – the ceremony was exactly what we wanted because Lissa worked with us to understand how we wanted to celebrate with our family and friends, and pitched it just right.
We’re so grateful that we had the opportunity to have Lissa as our celebrant. Because we had complete trust in her to do everything as we’d hoped, we were able to relax and focus on enjoying our wedding.

Lissa was gentle and kind and supported us from the beginning. When we got distracted she kept us on track and when we got stuck she provided inspiration. We both appreciated her sense of playfulness and ritual and couldn’t have been happier on the day.

Katie and I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for your enormous contribution in making our wedding day the special and wonderful experience that it was. You were outstanding in your support and guidance but ultimately the freedom in allowing us to express ourselves and to make it “our day” and this is the main reason why we chose you.
Lissa you were outstanding when we had some delays and changes in the plans but you kept cool and kept everyone focused and we were able to navigate though this and in the end everything went according to script and we are happily married.
I would highly recommend you to all our friends and to anyone visiting your website – you have clicked on the right site and the right person! Go for it – we did.

We first met Lissa when she was the marriage celebrant for our friend’s wedding. We
were instantly drawn to her professionalism and eloquence, so soon made contact with her in reference to our own ‘Big Day’.
Planning a wedding can be daunting and a little overwhelming. Lissa acknowledged this and led us confidently through the details of the ceremony while encouraging us to personalise the service in a way which made it special to us. We met with Lissa and exchanged several emails in the lead-up to the wedding and were impressed with her
genuine desire to get to know us and understand what was important to us as a couple.
Lissa has a natural warmth which made her not only a lovely person to deal with, but also earnt our absolute trust quickly. Lissa is intelligent, articulate, calming and creative. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant who is passionate about designing a ceremony that suits you.
