What my clients have said about me..
Thanks for being our celebrant on Sunday. You made our wedding a very memorable occasion and put together a fabulous ceremony that incorporated all the elements we wanted. Although we only had a tiny wedding, we wanted it to be meaningful and you certainly achieved that. I highly recommend you for anyone looking for a professional and intuitive celebrant.
From start to finish Ishara made my family and I feel comfortable. I especially was overwhelmed and as soon as she introduced the ceremony and made us feel the wind and take in the surroundings I felt at ease. Ishara is such a calm and beautiful spirit and we loved her being at the naming ceremony. Guests commented on how nice and professional she was. I hope to have her as our celebrant for our wedding. Thank you very much Ishara for such an amazing day it wouldn’t have been as special without you.

(regarding a Welcoming Ceremony for her daughter)
“Thank you from both Siyi & I.
The service you provided us was truly helpful and professional. It was such a fun night and beautiful ceremony. You took care of all the paper works and guided us all the way to the end. We cannot thank you enough.
We do highly recommend Ishara to anyone and for any occasion. Once again, Thank You!”
My wife and I would like to thank Ishara for all of her help and assistance on and before our wedding day. During meetings with Ishara, everything was so clearly explained and followed up with detailed emails covering all that was required. We asked for advice on a number of items and value the feedback received. The wedding day was a great success and we have had a lot of positive comments from all of the guests. I can highly recommend Ishara and can’t thank her enough.

Thank You Ishara.
We loved our whole experience….. from the cute little caravan office to the amazing ceremony. The way Ishara helped us through the process of choosing the elements we would like to include in our ceremony with the suggestion cards and her knowledge of the rights/ ritual and customs made it very easy to create our fantastic wedding ceremony and her very Professional and confident delivery of the ceremony was fantastic. We could not have asked for more, our guests all commented on how moving, expressive, witty and different our ceremony was. It was a lovely touch to get a copy of the ceremony in with our marriage certificate.
A huge big thankyou from our guests and ourselves for making our day so beautiful.

Ishara was very professional and attentive from our first meeting.
She agreed to a venue change for the ceremony without a problem.
On the day she conducted the ceremony very well and all our family and guests commented on what a happy wedding it was.
We would like to congratulate Ishara for making us feel comfortable and relaxed on our special day and would recommend her highly for any event.
From the initial contact via email; the planning meeting; the emails back and forth to arrange the details and finally the ceremony itself, Ishara worked out exactly what we wanted and provided it to us in a sincere, friendly and professional manner.
Ishara’s experience and thorough knowledge of all the different possibilities allowed us to personalise our ceremony and make it something special for our family and friends who attended. Something that we will never forget. Ishara was able to provide many items to complement the ceremony and add to the experience for the day.
Finally, when our next baby is ready for a naming ceremony, we won’t hesitate to contact Ishara to help with that too.
We have found Ishara very much friendly and helpful from beginning till closure of ceremony. We are grateful to her that she has been guiding and advising us from her rich experience. She understands the value of marriage and she gives valuable advise to new couple (like us) irrespective of culture or tradition.
Thank your so much Ishara for helping us in creation of our marriage vows.
