High Church Brisbane CelebrantANJ + DAN – married at High Church Brisbane

Carly, we cannot thank you enough for writing and conducting the most perfect ceremony for us.

In the beginning we had no idea that a ceremony could be so beautifully personal and mean so much to us and to our guests.

You absolutely exceeded our expectations and there is not a single thing we would change.

We have received many comments on how great the ceremony was and how it touched so many of our guests and got them feeling very emotional about family and love.

I most of all loved how everyone was made to feel involved (as they are in our lives!) – from the support of their “we do’s” to the hilarity of Jen’s reading and on to taking a moment to look into the crowd and appreciating the love and support we have from all who were there.

It was the perfect start to a perfect day.

Much love and thank you Anj & Dan

Hillstone St Lucia Celebrant
JOSEPHINE + MUSHFIQ – married at Hillstone St Lucia

My husband and I can’t believe how lucky we were to have Carly as our marriage celebrant. Carly is highly organised and professional in her approach, helping us at every stage. We were able to step back and let her guide us through the process of planning a ceremony and preparing the paperwork.

Carly has a beautiful, warm and bright personality that is an absolute pleasure to work with! Our guests were all extremely impressed with her cheerful and confident delivery during our ceremony. She was also so incredibly considerate and thoughtful at every moment – helping our MC with the music when the volume was unexpectedly turned down and knowing exactly when to step to the side to let us take couple photographs at the altar. She even helped us individually with writing our vows. She is simply just wonderful!

I recommend Carly to any of our trusted friends and family looking for a dedicated and lovable celebrant for any official occasion.

Carly – you deserve the best! Thank you for all your help!

Carly, Aaron and I are still on a high from our wedding and we can’t thank you enough for everything you did in the lead up and on the day to make it so special.

Of all of the amazing elements of the day, you definitely left the biggest impression with our guests (and us!). We have had so many people ask about you and how we found you.

You will come highly recommended to any of our friends who are lucky enough to be starting the amazing journey of getting hitched. Thank you again and good luck with everything in the future.

Carly Duncan x

Carly, you are an absolute superstar. We can’t thank you enough for all of your work, not only on the day, but in the build up with all our questions and our requests. You are so easy to deal with and nothing was too hard for you. You’re the only celebrant we met with and it was a no brainer after that meeting.

We had a lot of people comment about how much they loved the ceremony you put together and how fun you made it. You made Carly and I feel at ease standing up there in front of everyone. I don’t think we could have imagined the ceremony going so well and that was down to you. THANK YOU!

Could not recommend you enough. To anyone else out there reading this, book Carly in before she books out! You will love her.

We cannot describe how fortunate we were to have Carly with us on our journey. From the beginning — when we had our first meeting with Carly in her home — we instantly clicked. Her warm and caring personality was exactly what we wanted. Along with her support, she gave us the confidence to focus on our day without worry.

Carly is a very professional and well organized individual, who goes above and beyond to help guide you through everything. She respected and adapted to the way we wanted our ceremony to be, without judgement, and also lead us through all the paperwork – much to our gratitude!

It was an amazing experience that we will both treasure in our hearts forever and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Carly – she is a fabulous celebrant with style.

We highly recommend Carly to anyone looking for a professional celebrant who presents perfectly to an audience and makes the ceremony preparation easy and stress free.

Carly was able to provide a range of ideas for the ceremony format and style, but was equally happy to let us design the ceremony and add our input.

Carly ensures the ceremony is about the couple, and she delivers the ceremony in a very professional and polished style while simultaneously being warm and funny.

We received so many compliments on the ceremony from our guests and would recommend Carly to anyone looking to put together a meaningful, heartfelt ceremony with style!

Carly, thank you so much for our beautiful wedding ceremony. You have a great balance of professionalism, emotion and empathy which we loved.

We really appreciated how organised you were and flexible with meeting times and communication via email was fantastic. You provided some great pieces of material to guide us through the experience without being overwhelming.

We also liked the online ceremony run through rather than the rehearsal. You were also able to organise things for us with short notice. We enjoyed our beautiful ceremony. We’ll be sure to recommend you to others. Thanks again, Jo and Adel

Carly was our celebrant for our wedding in April.

I am so so happy we chose her for this very important task. She was so friendly & approachable, we felt like we could completely be ourselves around her.

When I was looking for a celebrant I really wanted someone around our age who knew how to add some modern touches to the ceremony & a uniqueness that everyone hadn’t seen done a hundred times before. This is exactly what we got with Carly.

I received so many compliments about how lovely & personal our ceremony was & how it reflected our relationship.

I would highly recommend Carly if you’re looking for a younger celebrant who is very in touch with what the bride & groom of today are after.

SONIA + NICK – married at Yandina Station

We first meet Carly 7 months before our wedding on a very wet & rainy day and we also got married on a wet and rainy day. Despite this Carly was so friendly, professional and put us both at ease from minute one.

Carly kept in regular contact in the months leading up to our wedding day and always offered help and answered all of our questions. She tailored the ceremony to our story and to hear it read out in front of all our friends and family on the day was an amazing feeling, she has a real talent.

Carly even added in some personal messages that both of us had written for each other and not heard until the day. We also wrote our own vows and she did a great job helping us with these too.

Carly took care of all the details and paper work involved in getting married, everything was sorted for us.

Our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect, our guests had such great time and they couldn’t stop talking about our ceremony. Carly’s delivery of our ceremony was so lovely, she speaks with such confidence and affection. It was perfect!!

We feel very lucky to have found Carly and we recommend her to anyone wanting a personal ceremony with traditional parts that are relatable to you and today’s life.

Carly thank you so much for making our day so memorable, you are a beautiful person and fantastic at your job.

Much love Sonia & Nick. X

Having you apart of our wedding as our celebrant was one of the best things about our day.

From the very beginning you made us feel so comfortable and made every step stress free. You didn’t mind answering all of our questions no matter how small, you were so patient with us.

Our ceremony was everything we wanted, you made it personal and I loved that every person was so engaged with the ceremony and you even got my parents emotional!

You are so well spoken and well presented and have a way of making everyone want to listen. You can tell you love what you do and we are so privileged to have had you marry us!!

Carly, we cannot thank you enough for everything.

From the second we booked you, you have gone above and beyond to make sure our ceremony was everything we hoped for and more – and it was!

It was honestly the most perfect day of our lives and we owe that all to you and your incredible professionalism, attention to detail and naturally warm and kind personality.

We clicked with you instantly at the first meeting and knew you were perfect for us. Both Dan and I were completely clueless about weddings and how they should run, you guided us through everything, made sure we were happy and comfortable with everything that was planned for us.

Planning a ceremony while Dan was overseas for work and difficult to contact at times was far from easy but with your amazing patience and guidance we just breezed through it!

You listened to absolutely everything we wanted, even though we changed our mind countless times!! And on the big day you kept me calm the whole time, everything ran so smoothly and all our guests commented to us afterwards how professional you were and how it was such a beautiful ceremony.

I will definitely be recommending you to any of our friends who might be getting married in the future, I cannot speak more highly of you! Thank you a million times over once again,
Julia & Dan.

On the day, she made both Beau and I feel completely at ease and helped us laugh at all of the things that didn’t go to plan, including an impromptu Mumford and Sons concert on the river!

I would recommend Carly to anyone who is after a professional, yet relaxed and fun celebrant.

We were very fortunate to have Carly Slade as our marriage celebrant. She was absolutely wonderful, and we could not have asked for a more organised, warm, and professional person to help us on our special day!

Carly was incredibly supportive throughout the process, and tailored the ceremony to suit our wishes. She has a refreshingly modern and personal approach, and developed our love story into as beautiful script full of humour and warmth. Carly was always more than happy to answer any questions, and always responded to emails promptly.

On the day she was relaxed yet professional, and conducted the ceremony flawlessly. We also received positive feedback from our guests who thought she was excellent.

We highly recommend Carly to anyone planning a wedding – we could not have been luckier to have such a superb celebrant!
