WORST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE, AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! Despite being coached multiple times on how to correctly pronounce names, he got both the bride and grooms names terribly wrong during the ceremony, was interrupted during the ceremony politely to advise him the correct way to say the names, but immediately after being advised he kept to his script and got all of the names wrong, was disappointed but got over it, However, the real problem was with the official marriage certificate that we many times clearly advised him that we needed it to be exactly correct for visa purposes, and we provided all documents and passport photocopies multiple times and confirmed all of the details too. He still managed to stuff it up really badly, it was obvious that he didn't put any attention or care into it and clearly just went off the top of his head with the details that he only needed to copy and paste to get right, he got 13 separate fields wrong on the marriage certificate and when contacted about it refused to accept any responsibility for his mistakes and was extremely rude about making it known that he wasn't going to do anything to fix it. We were really lucky to get the Marriage certificate as it was directed to the Wrong Address, I still don’t know how he thought that picking random numbers and letters off the top of his head was a better idea than looking at the documents and details that we had sent him in writing/email… He was repeatedly rude and abusive towards both of us, and not at all helpful or understanding that we could not do anything about fixing it when we were overseas and on our honeymoon, he has caused both of us a lot of stress and anxiety that should NEVER of happened, I really regret using him. He really has no business in being a celebrant when he can't get the simple details right and won't do the whole job that you have paid for. Especially when he doesn't even attempt to fix his own mistakes but instead is abusive towards clients and doesn't accept responsibility. It took 2 full days of messing around and a lot of stress with gathering documents that we wouldn’t of had to provide if it was done right in the first place. You want your wedding day to be perfect, or as good as it can be, please save yourself the stress and anxiety and go with someone else and have a good wedding day in the hands of someone more capable, (e.g. Anyone but him it would seem...). We got stung, don’t get stung too!

Claire was amazing. She really took the time to get to know me and Lloyd and even my family, making her being our Celebrant on our special day even better! Thanks so much, Claire :) and thankfully the rain held of!
