SARAH & BEN – married on a private property

From the moment I found Carly, I knew she would make the most incredible celebrant for us. She is warm, organised, incredibly generous with her time and not to mention beyond stylish! In the lead up to our wedding, Carly was prompt with all communication and had many options for all of our queries – from song options to vow options (seriously impressive!).  Carly is a natural public speaker, and presented our ceremony with grace and a quiet confidence that so perfectly told our love story. The amount of compliments we received on the ceremony truly speaks to Carly’s talent, both in crafting and presenting a story.  If you’re reading this, and Carly is free on your date, you must book her immediately! Carly I cannot thank you enough xx

BRIDGET & TODD – married at The Calile Hotel

Carly married us at the Calile Hotel and she was just the perfect celebrant! She’s not only organised and extremely professional, but also incredibly friendly and simply a delight to deal with. Throughout the entire process, from our first meeting up until the ceremony, she communicated proactively and happily answered our many questions. Most of all, she made us feel relaxed on our special day and delivered the ceremony flawlessly, and I could not recommend her highly enough!!

CAROLINE & JACOB – married at Spicers Clovelly Estate

Carly is hands down the best celebrant we had ever seen at a wedding and we knew we needed to have her for ours. She officiated our ceremony so beautifully; everyone commented afterwards on how amazing she was and asked for her details. She also has the warmest, kindest personality, the most amazing wardrobe and will make sure she fits in perfectly. Thank you Carly, for making the process so easy, for answering all of our questions and for delivering our dream ceremony.

BELINDA & ADAM – married at Bundaleer 

Carly was, by far, our favourite wedding vendor. She is highly professional and organised in her approach, yet also so lovely and friendly. Carly was a delight to deal with, making our planning effortless and fun and always left us feeling so excited for the big day. When that day finally arrived, Carly had thought of everything, including small things like the width of the aisle and what to do with our hands. The ceremony was so personal and really captured us as a couple. The icing on the cake was finding our vow cards with our marriage certificate for us to read again the next day. Wish we could do it all over again!

EMMA & SAM – married at The Calile Hotel

Carly, thank you so much for your support, energy and attention to detail that made our wedding day wonderful, romantic, and unique to Sam & I.  Carly’s rehearsal guide, zoom meetings and communication is everything you need and more.  For me, seeing Carly in the room helped so much and made it so real. And for Sam, he felt supported, and that Carly looked after everything from the moment he got to the ceremony making it as smooth as possible.  Family and friends were coming to us through out the night & complimenting how amazing Carly was, how intimate and personal our ceremony was. It was so special to hear this.  Also lots of comments on how incredible Carly looked!  It was an absolute privilege to be married by Carly.

KELLY & ROHAN – married at Maleny Manor

All we can say is, thank goodness Carly was part of our day!  She felt like a friend as soon as we met her and we knew we were in good hands!  She was reassuring on the day and we could tell she was genuinely thrilled and excited for us.  Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and it was the perfect mix of relaxed and personal and our guests were engaged throughout.  We couldn’t count the number of people who have made special mention of Carly to us and said how much they loved the ceremony.  We also live-streamed our wedding for our friends and family overseas and with every congratulations text there was also a message to say how amazing our celebrant was.  Thank you Carly for making the most important part of our day…perfect!

BECKY & LACHLAN – married at The Refinery

I’m in awe of Carly and how perfectly she curated our wedding ceremony! We are so grateful for how beautifully she presented the ceremony and for her attention to detail leading up to the day.  Although Carly juggles multiple weddings, she always makes you feel like a priority and communicates her availability in advance which was so thoughtful! I found that Carly is great for introverted couples (like us!) as her questionnaire and style tailors the ceremony to represent your relationship exactly the way you want to. It is so validating to have almost every guest comment on how amazing she was – I would not hesitate to recommend her! Thank you so much Carly ♡

MADDY & DAMIAN – married at Hillstone St Lucia

Carly is such an excellent celebrant. We were very lucky to have her on our day. She was well spoken, polite and helpful with all our guests. She tailored the ceremony specific to us for a casual and elegant ceremony and she told our story with such care. Many of our guests commented on how professional and comforting she was, having a chat with guests before and after the ceremony. The whole process from finding Carly, through the planning stages and finally the big day was an absolute breeze. We can wholeheartedly recommend Carly as wedding celebrant and thank you again for taking care of us!

SASHA & JACK – married at Maleny Manor

Carly has the voice of an angel! She made the whole process from booking to the day so enjoyable. Carly wrote the most beautiful love story/ceremony from the information we gave her, it was as if she had known us our entire relationship. She provided guide documents to make writing our own vows so easy, as well as proof reading and advising. Her style and manner is second to none. Highly recommend for your special day.

ZAMYRA & MATT – married at Praise Mountain Farm

Carly is truly such an amazing celebrant. From our initial contact with her, you could feel her calm nature, and without even talking to her on the phone, we knew we wanted to lock her in to be our celebrant. Carly made the entire planning process stress free. We had no idea what a ceremony could entail, so it was so helpful having her wealth of knowledge to guide us during this process, and to provide us with options to create such a personalised ceremony. The way she wrote our story was so beautiful, and we couldn’t have asked for a more fun and heartwarming ceremony that we will truly remember forever. On our wedding day Carly was such a calming presence, she was organised and guided us through our ceremony so effortlessly. We are truly grateful to have had her there on our special day.

Brisbane Celebrant Ruby & Grant

RUBY & GRANT – married on a private property

We believe for a wedding, the ceremony sets the tone for the entire day and therefore the celebrant is an integral part. Many guests often judge the day by the ceremony so it was really important to us that our ceremony was formal, personalised and warm. Carly went above and beyond our expectation for the ceremony, it was absolutely perfect! Many of our guests commented how wonderful the ceremony and celebrant was. Not only does she speak and write well she also looks good doing it! As someone that also loves and appreciates fashion, Carly puts the effort in to make sure the ceremony matches the wedding perfectly including her outfit. Carly, thank you so much for making our day everything we wanted and more. Ruby and Grant Otte

ERIKA + REX – married at Lightspace

We can’t say enough good things about Carly!  One of our early wedding-planning concerns was how to find a celebrant that was right for us, especially because we were having our wedding interstate. We had been to quite a few weddings recently, which had highlighted for us how important it is to have a celebrant that suits your style, personality, and outlook on marriage. Luckily for us, we clicked with Carly immediately.  Carly is bright, warm, genuine, and an absolute pleasure to deal with. She is highly professional, meticulously organised and always prompt with communication. We really appreciated that she took the time to get to know us, and to understand what marriage meant to us, and the type of wedding that we wanted. She put us completely at ease, and helped each of us to write the most perfect, personalised wedding vows.  Planning a wedding can be very stressful, particularly towards the end as the wedding day approaches. Carly was such an asset in those last couple of weeks. She was generous with her time, answering any questions we had, and offering her experienced advice and support. Most of all, she helped to keep us focussed on what the day was all about, rather than letting ourselves get overwhelmed by all the last-minute details.  Thank you Carly!!!  Erika and Rex xx

We’d rate her 100 stars if we could!

Carly was brilliant for us to work with. We had a lot of input into how we would like things to work, but all guided carefully by Carly. She is extremely organised, sensitive to our thoughts but also makes sure she gives her experienced opinion. On the day, our friends and family couldn’t speak more highly of her and the ceremony – not that we were surprised – she is a star and made for this job I believe.

We are truly grateful to have stumbled across Carly and will be forever thankful for her involvement in our special day! Right from the get go, she impressed us with her professionalism. We knew we were in safe hands to not only get the job done of the day, but all the bits of paperwork that have to be submitted along the way. Carly gave us some really fun suggestions of how to make our wedding more ‘personalised’ and ‘fun’. We wanted our day to be unique and our ceremony was just that… We had so many comments from our friends and family about the ceremony and how perfectly Carly delivered it, some even saying it was “the best wedding they had ever been to”.   Thank you Carly for being so fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a celebrant for their special day!  Tom & Danica xxx

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, 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.  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.

Brisbane CelebrantDAVID & MARCIO – married aboard the MV Lady Brisbane

I’m not sure any words will ever be able to express how thankful we are to Carly for the massive role she played in the most important day of our lives. The ceremony Carly conducted was very personal and intimate but also fun and funny and she captured us perfectly in how she put the ceremony together.  The feedback we’ve had from guests since the wedding has been phenomenal (and that includes some serious wedding veterans!).  Carly is the ultimate professional, even having tissues on hand when we both turned to blubbering messes!  We always felt like we were in safe hands with Carly, she not only put us at ease but showed she really wanted to make sure the ceremony was unique to us, and it truly was.  So, once again, thank you Carly from the bottom of our hearts. You are a very special person with a very special gift and we’re so glad that we got the opportunity to meet you.

Spicers Hidden Vale Wedding

LUCINDA + STEWART – married at Spicers Hidden Vale

We were lucky to have found Carly when looking through the depths of the web, hoping to find a celebrant that matched and suited our personalities and the type of ceremony we wanted. After our initial phone conversation, and especially after we met Carly for in person, we knew that we had the right celebrant, and were thrilled to have her by our side. Carly is warm, funny, clever and very personable – all the ingredients you want in a celebrant!  Carly has a great method and process in place to help you, as a couple, tell your own story in the ceremony, and just makes it so easy and comfortable as possible. She was such a pleasure to deal with leading up to the wedding, and on the day was just amazing. We had so many lovely comments about Carly, and our ceremony, afterwards. We owe so much to Carly in making our day as special and memorable as it was – it really wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much Carly xx

RAIHANIA & ANDREW – married at North Lakes Golf Club

Thank you so much for being our Celebrant. The ceremony was beautiful, intimate, well run, professional and went off without issue. You were a pleasure to deal with and out of all our vendors you were by far the best and our favourite. We had so many people comment on how good the ceremony was and that you did a fantastic job. The ceremony was so, so good and went by too quick, we wished it lasted all day. We haven’t stopped talking about it since.  On a personal note from the moment we met you on skype we knew that you would be our celebrant. From day one you made us feel comfortable and we trusted you would make our day special. You cared about us and didn’t just look at the wedding as a business transaction or just another day at your “job”. You made everything easy and during the very stressful time of organising a wedding, nothing was ever stressful when it came to working with you. On the day you were so relaxed, friendly, organised and happy and that certainly had a flow on affect to Rai and I.  The ceremony set the tone for what was a fantastic day. It was funny, emotional, cultural, relaxed and loving. We can’t thank you enough and you will always have a special place in our hearts for playing a part in the best day of our lives.

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 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!

Words cannot describe just how perfect Carly made our wedding ceremony.  Carly’s mix of passion, professionalism and attention to detail was far beyond our expectations.  She took the time and effort to understand exactly what we wanted which resulted in our dream ceremony.  Carly goes above and beyond any celebrant we have ever witnessed.  From the coaching on our vows to the organisation of every legal requirement, even knowing exactly what to wear to suit our theme – she completely ticked every box.  We were so lucky and grateful to have been recommended to Carly and can’t thank her enough.

LAUREN + JONATHAN – married at Sirromet

Our wedding was on Friday and the ceremony was perfection!  It was very emotional for my husband and I, very personalised with a secret element that kept it fresh and special.  Very much tailored to us.  It had a huge impact on our guests and was one of the most commented on elements.  I also felt like my extended family got to know my husband much better through the ceremony and the same for his family of me.  Carly was the most organised person involved in the whole process, I had complete peace of mind on the day with Carly having the ceremony completely covered.  She is very well presented and a pleasure to deal with.  Thank you Carly!

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.

Carly was the most amazing celebrant. We couldn’t have found anyone more perfect to have there on our big day.  Carly is very organised and thinks of everything, including all of the tiny details. Carly was very helpful and made the process from intention to marriage forms to our vows so easy.  Not only is Carly very professional when it comes to business, but she is also a lovely person and we really enjoyed getting to know her in the lead up to our wedding.

ANJ + 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

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

GEN + DYLAN – married at Gabbinbar Homestead

Carly was the icing on the cake to our dream wedding. From the moment Carly met with us at our home we felt that she was the celebrant for us. Carly was kind, relatable, down to earth and very professional.  We loved planning our ceremony with her and her questionnaire was the perfect way for us to shape the tone of our ceremony – and was a lot of fun!  On the day, Carly was the absolute professional, but also elegant and warm. We really did feel like Carly wanted to be there and cared about us. Since our wedding, all our family and friends have done is rave about how lovely Carly was and how perfect the ceremony was.  Thank you so much Carly for marrying us! Anyone would be lucky to have you!

High Church Brisabne

CAMILLA + JUNIOR – married at High Church Brisbane

My husband and I were blessed to be able to have the wedding of our dreams in September, a day that ran so smoothly without any issues. Having Carly Slade as our celebrant is a vital part of what made this possible.  From the first consult, to the day of the wedding, Carly has been nothing but extremely professional, knowledgable and attentive. Her attention to detail is amazing and she was always steps ahead of the entire process.  She took the time to get to know us before the wedding and get a real and genuine profile in order to tailor the wedding to perfectly suit us. Not only did she convey our story in a magnificent manner but she captured the exact sentiment that we were after. She also allowed to us to be very involved in the process, by sending drafts of the ceremony for any changes we wanted to implement and offered help to plan all aspects of the ceremony.  To give an indication of how personable, genuine and brilliant of a job Carly did, we have been asked by many of our guests if the celebrant we used was a good friend that we had known for many years!  Throughout the planning process, and especially on the day, Carly made us feel at ease and had a contingency plan for any potential obstacle. Her service was invaluable and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us.  Finally we would like to say: Carly, we were blown away from the very beginning with your service, personability, and kind nature. It exceeded all of our expectations. Never in our dreams did we think that everything would turn out so perfectly and be the wedding we had always hoped for.  Carly Slade by far stands out as the best in Brisbane and surrounds as a celebrant. We highly recommend her to anyone seeking excellent service for any future ceremonies. Your work truly is impeccable!

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

MARYON & MATT – Married at Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm

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!  P.S. Matt thinks you should say – “Carly Slade – stepping away from the blue rinse celebrant stereotype!”
