Excellent experience from start to finish!
Where do I even start? I believe Joanne may be the kindest person I have ever met. We consider ourselves truly lucky to have had her as our celebrant. From early planning to the final moments during our ceremony she was a calm, competent "rock" for us, guiding us through it all - even our baby daughter crying during the ceremony. I could not recommend her enough. Thank you so much, Joanne!

Thank You So Much For Everything
Joanne, wow. Thank you so much for everything. The ceremony was exactly as we had imagined & even better than we could have ever planned for. You have conducted yourself in such a professional but caring & humble way throughout the process & myself & Nikhil feel truly blessed to have chosen you as our celebrant. We hope that you also enjoyed the ceremony. We have had so many heartfelt compliments already about how lovely your aura/energy is and how comfortable all of the guests felt throughout.

Thank you so much for being a part of it
Thank you so much for being a part of it! You kept it so stress free for us. Which is just amazing considering how close it was to the day. Your ideas and information you sent over put our minds at ease and even when we were nervous about saying our own words you helped and I am so happy you did because the words were beautiful.

Most Beautiful Ceremony
Joanne done our ceremony at Vallum Farm on 28.5.22. It was the most beautiful ceremony and every one of our guests commented how beautiful the ceremony was. From the day we asked Joanne about our ceremony through website to the wedding day was so straight forward and no stress at all. Joanne met us in our home and asked us about everything to do with us and our ceremony. It was everything and more we could have wished for. I would recommend Caritas Ceremonies to anyone looking for a celebrant ceremony. Thank you so much again for everything Ashleigh and David Reeson
