REVIEWS what couples have said about Elaine Searle's wedding celebrant services

To Elaine,
Thank you so much for all your work before and after our ceremony. It was so lovely to have a ceremony personalised to Tom and I. We think the questionnaire was a great idea and from it, you created the perfect ceremony. It was also a really lovely surprise to receive the beautifully presented keepsake copy of the ceremony afterwards. Your dress was beautiful and matched the colour scheme perfectly! Your attention to detail in every aspect was wonderful and made the ceremony run so smoothly. We had plenty of comments on what a lovely ceremony it was.
Again thank you for everything,
Best wishes,

Courtney and Tom Wilson

Good morning Elaine,
THANK YOU for everything you did for our wedding day. Our ceremony was everything we had imagined - relaxed and friendly.
It was a pleasure knowing you. We would not have achieved what we had in mind without your help, you have done an exceptional ceremony drawing everyone into the scene with your professionalism and charm.

Hi Elaine,
Chris and I want to thank you for our lovely renewal ceremony on the weekend. Our families and friends were all so happy to be part of the 'Australian' part of our wedding and the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. I think they were a few non dry eyes at the end, including my mums!
Thank you again

Hi Elaine!

Hi Elaine,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did to help us with our wedding. You truly made everything so easy, and everything ran so smoothly thanks to you! I was so moved to find our wedding ceremony presented so beautifully in the wedding pack you gave us - it means so much to us to have such a lovely record of our ceremony. Thank you also for organising all the official documentation too - I have been singing your praises to everyone, especially since we received a copy of our registered certificate three days after the wedding! I would have been at a total loss as to how to organise it myself!
Many, many guests at our wedding commented on how beautifully you presided over the ceremony, and we were so happy to have you there as part of our day. We had the most amazing time at our wedding, even if it was all a bit of a blur!
Many, many, thanks again,
Frances and Cory, 11th April, 2015, Bilpin Resort

Hi Elaine,
Thank you so much for being part of our day and for your lovely presence.
We absolutely loved the ceremony, it was exactly what we had both pictured and hoped for. We especially loved the John Lennon quote at the end. Very nice touch! So many of our guests commented on what a lovely ceremony it was.The rest of the night was amazing. It really was just what we both wanted for our wedding and wish we could do it all again. Wouldn't change a single thing.Thank you again. Everything was just perfect.

Hi Elaine,
Our honeymoon was great fun and an experience to remember. So many places and all so different to one another. Thank you so much for your services. You were fantastic and everything we wanted for our celebrant. We were so lucky to have found you. 

Thank you for thinking our wedding was beautiful, we thought so too, we loved the gardens and the weather was perfect. It couldn't have been any better and our reception was fantastic as well. The day went too quickly. 

We have also received our marriage certificate. 

Thanks again you really helped make our day special. 

Kind Regards

Tamara and Josh

Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens, 11th October, 2014

Hi Elaine,
Thank you for your kind words! We have just returned from our honeymoon in Port Douglas and Hamilton Island. We had a very lovely two weeks together; and are starting to get used to calling each other husband and wife!

First of all, we can't thank you enough for being our celebrant on the happiest day of our lives. We are truly blessed to have found you - Your warmth and laughter throughout the experience made working with you such a pleasure. It will not be forgotten!

We are so very happy with the wedding ceremony and wouldn't change a thing! Guests have commented on how beautiful it was too. We are so over the moon that the weather was fantastic on the day. And to top it all off, our little flower girl Sierra walked down the aisle without a hitch!

We will absolutely send you some wedding photos as soon as we receive them from Nerida McMurray! We'd be more than happy for you to use the photos on your website and Facebook. Our guests respected the social media ban which was great - Now, we're not too worried if photos are on Facebook. It was more so to keep the day itself intimate.

Thank you for registering our marriage with BDM. We are yet to receive the marriage certificate in the post, but I'm sure it will come soon. Just to confirm our address is 503/95 Brompton Road, Kensington NSW 2033 (or PO Box 536 Maroubra NSW 2035).

We have responded to the ABIA ratings link and given your services glowing reviews (of course!).

Thank you once again for being the wonderful person you are. We'll be in touch again soon to send you a disc of photos :)

Warm regards,

Mitchell & Sarah Koureas

Hi Elaine,

Thank you so much for being our celebrant at our special day on Saturday. You helped make it a wonderful experience and we appreciate all the help and advice you gave leading up to it. I think David was more nervous than I was! The day ended up beautifully and exactly how I had planned. I will certainly put some photos up for you, hopefully before we go away tomorrow. Again, thank you so much for being part of our special day.

Kindest regards


David and Jane, Cielo at Akuna Bay, 5th April, 2014



Elaine I am so so sorry it had taken me so long to respond, married life has been absolutely non-stop so far!! We both wanted to thank you for helping make our wedding the special, happy and memorable day it was.  And, for giving up your time in your birthday.  Lots of people commented on how much they liked the service, its humour, simplicity and the 5 readings seemed to be a big topic of conversation.

We would be very happy and  honoured for you to use some pics from the day and will forward some on once we have received them.

Many, many thanks

Tori and Michael, Gunners Barracks, 23rd March 2014


Hi Elaine,

Thank you again for the wonderful ceremony you wrote for Ben and me last week. The day was truly special and perfect for us, and the venue was perfect! Everyone commented on how intimate, friendly and relaxed the day was, and they loved the personal touches in the ceremony that showed who we are as a couple. We also hope you liked the photos! Joseph did a great job of capturing the day, and I will be sure to send you some images once I receive the USB as they can't be downloaded off the site. 

Once again, thank you for creating a beautiful and personal wedding service for us; it was such a great day for all.

Hi Elaine,  Thank you so very much for everything, we had a wonderful time and the ceremony was perfect. It would not be the same if you weren't part of such a special occasion.Everything throughout the day was perfect. We had such a great time and were extraordinarily relaxed.Thank you so much and all our love,
Rebekah and Christopher.Vaucluse House, 27th December, 2013

Hi Elaine,
Thanks for your lovely email, and thank you again for being such a wonderful celebrant.  You handled all the wind very well :)
We had such a fantastic day and evening.  I wouldn't have changed a thing.Thanks for organising the registration
Emma & Mark, Cabarita Park, 28th September, 2013

Hi Elaine,
Thank you so much for being our celebrant!  The ceremony was actually our favourite part of the day - it turned out so lovely and we loved that it wasn't too overly formal, it was nice and casual and relaxed with a lot of laughs!

We received our certificate of marriage the other day!  It came quite quickly!  Thank you for arranging everything for us, it definitely took the stress out of it all knowing that you had it all under control :) And that is good to hear that we were easy to work with - we didn't really know much about what to do in the beginning (and maybe even right up to the rehearsal - which was very helpful btw!) so you were definitely our helping hand and taught us lots of new things!

Thank you again from both Andrew & I, and we will be sure to recommend to you any friends getting married in the future :)

, Wendy's Secret Garden, Lavender Bay, 14th September, 2013

Hi Elaine, a big "thank you" for the lovely ceremony last Saturday afternoon at the Secret Garden Lavender Bay. I am father of the bride, Debra McArthur who married Andrew Henderson. You brought dignity as well as humour to our special day and your being in photos means we have a lasting memory of the "official" side of the ceremony, if I may put it that way! Also having a rehearsal on the Friday was commendable, it allowed us to relax when the real ceremony took place. Good luck in your future, if possible we shall recommend you to others.
Regards, Barrie McArthur. (father of the bride) Wendy's Garden, Lavender Bay, 14 September, 2013


Dear Elaine,Thank you for making the ceremony very special, and also thanks for being so understanding about the delays in starting up!We both agree that it was a beautiful ceremony, helped greatly by your patience and calm demeanour. Nothing was too difficult for you and we so appreciate having had you as our celebrant. Pilu and the whole day was just so perfect!
All the best Elaine, With much affection,

I've attached a couple of photos for you, what a remarkable weather day it was, look at that sky!

Warm regards, Penny and Ted, Mona Vale headland, 14th October 2012

Hello Elaine,
We have received our marriage certificate, thank you, it was very quick. And thank you very much for the beautiful ceremony, we loved every minute of it. I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already since the day, time flies. We should receive the video soon too. That I'm really looking forward to. We need it before we go to Europe so as to show it to our families. In a month time we will be celebrating our union again in Italy. Our local priest has agreed to bless the rings in the parish house in the presence of my close family. We will be doing that and then go to have a big, long, Italian style meal with all the relatives and friends. Anyway, thanks again for all your assistance and for making our day so very special. I'll be in touch soon, regards, Alessandra

Lisa Choi, The Italian Village, The Rocks, 27 October, 2012

Hi Elaine
Thank you so much for being our celebrant and your kind words! I think the ceremony rates as one of my favourite highlights of the day - it was really beautiful and it felt sincere, personal and honest (the way we wanted to be) and a big part of that success is because you conducted it so wonderfully. Many people have commented at how they were moved very close to tears during the ceremony - I guess that is the ultimate compliment :)
Thanks so much once again,

 Hi Elaine,
Sorry it was taken so long for us to get back to you. As you can imagine it's been busy back at work.Hawaii was fantastic. We absolutely had a ball and relaxed quite a lot too.Thank you so much for being our celebrant. We were both really touched that you could do it for us. It made our ceremony really personal and we were thrilled with how it all ran.
I have attached some photos.  We would be more than happy for you to use them on your website. I can't believe how lucky we were with the weather!!! Thank god the ceremony wasn't an hour later!

One of the bridesmaids at the next wedding you went to, was one of our friends. She obviously couldn't make it to our wedding, but recognised you in the photos. How funny!We received out marriage certificate last week. Thank you for getting that organised so quickly.
Thanks again Elaine.We would love to keep in touch.

Believe it or not we only just got back from our honeymoon yesterday!! We went to Peru and Fiji - it was absolutely incredible! Mat and I would like to thank you for a wonderful ceremony. You made us both feel so relaxed and at ease and did such a wonderful job on the day so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Everyone said what a wonderful ceremony it was and we think it was absolutely perfect. :)        We are still waiting on the professional photographs but some fantastic ones were taken by family and friends - some of which I have attached.My dress is by Johanna Johnson, she is based in Paddington and I absolutely love her designs and dresses. Sergeants Mess were absolutely incredible from start to finish. They could not do enough for us on the day and their level of professionalism was amazing. The reception was the best party we have ever attended and we had numerous comments about the level of service on the night and how outstanding it was.All in all we really did have the best day of our lives.Thanks again Elaine

Hi Elaine,
The wedding was just great. We also agree the ceremony was simple yet it was exactly the concept we were after. I am sure you have heard this many times, but we were so caught up in the excitement, moments just sped by and we are very much looking forward to the video to appreciate what happened!
    Thank you so much for your help and advice. You very quickly understood what we were after and to offer agreement, support and advice where necessary.Rupinder and I will always look back on this period, basically from January, with feelings of complete happiness, obviously because it culminated in our wedding, but also because everything just happened so easily, so simply, without any stress or tension. It was a really serene and beautiful experience throughout. You helped with that!
Once again it was an absolute pleasure having you conduct our wedding and we still look back on the day with wonderful memories.
Thank you so much. -
Warm Regards

Dear Elaine,
We can't THANK YOU enough for all your help, advice and finally the beautiful ceremony you gave us on our wedding day!You were extremely helpful without being pushy, you were patient, happy and approachable when helping us write our ceremony. 
You are efficient and organised and (thank god) reminded us of all the things we needed to do!I guess until the ceremony is in motion, it's not easy to imagine what it will be like and how it should run. We are so glad we worked with you and felt so much meaning in our vows on the day. Your light and pleasant personality was something that most guests mentioned to us afterwards. They loved your sense of humour.Please use these words as a recommendation to others.Thank you!

Hi Elaine
Thanks for your note, and for the update on the registered marriage certificate, we will look out for it in the mail.
Thanks for fulfilling the role that you did Elaine, one of the most important ones really. You were great with the girls, which was important to us. Everyone has commented on the ceremony with most saying they shed a tear, which means I think we all got the mix right and everything was appropriate in including the family celebration components.
Thanks again for helping make the day so special, we are both very proud of our girls as well as each other, and are looking forward this next chapter of our lives together.

Dear Elaine,
Heather & I want to say a bit THANK YOU for a wonderful ceremony. The weather at Palm Beach was just right, not too hot, not too cold, lovely sea breezes. It was great to have a chat with you and for you to meet my family and friends. It will be a day to remember. I don't think there are many out there with an engagement of 23 years! We wish you all the best and if you do get someone with a longer engagement than 23 years, do drop us a line!Take care and all our love,

Dear Elaine,
Sorry we have not been in touch sooner.   We arrived back in the UK yesterday and were pleased to find our marriage certificate had arrived in the post.
We would like to say a very very big thank you for conducting our wedding.    It was such a lovely day and the ceremony was just wonderful, it was exactly how we planned it.   We took a boat trip around the harbour in the afternoon, had lots of champagne and then went to the Harbour Kitchen at the Hyatt Hotel for the rest of the day.   We then flew up to Palm Cove for 5 days which was so relaxing.    We spent the rest of our time in Sydney and it was nice to spend some time with Scott and Robert.    Sydney is a great city. As promised, I enclose a couple of photos for your album and hope you like them.
Once again, we can't thank you enough.
With good wishes.
