Below are some testimonials that Gayle and Customised Ceremonies have received over the years.

Dear Gayle,

Just a note to say thank you.

We had the most wonderful day. Everything was perfect - and everyone said it was a beautiful ceremony.

Thank you so much. We could really feel how much you loved being there with us. I've included some photos so you won't forget us! We won't forget you.

Love Jenny, Darren, Casey, Brodie & Tara Hargraves.

Gayle made us feel special and important. She injected her own personality into the ceremony and many of our guests commented on how lovely she was. It was so much more than just a job to her, and she will always be a special person to our family because of the part she played in making our wedding magical.

Jenny & Darren Hargraves.

Very friendly & professional. Will definitely call upon again for future events.

Love Alison & Christian Parks.

Dear Gayle

Thank you so much for doing our wedding ceremony. We had the best wedding ever, and it all ran just beautifully. We have a great 'amateur' video of the service, including Christian laughing right at the most important part!!!

Thank you again Gayle, and all the best.

Alison & Christian Parks.

Thank you Gayle for making our day so memorable with your professionalism, genuine warmth and naturalness. We are truly grateful for all your hard work in making our day so special.

Thank you!

Love Toni & Daryl xx.


Thank you so much for everything, you made our day so very special and memorable.

Warmest Regards

Diana Gilbert.

Thanks for decorating the table exactly the way I wanted it done.


Thank you Gayle for making David and I feel so comfortable and confident in providing such an important service to us.

Your caring nature and professionalism to see things done on the day and leading up to the wedding was absolutely fantastic.

Thank you

Fiona & David Platten.

Gayle, On your critique 'outstanding' is next to 'weak'. Surely 'outstanding' should be next to 'excellent'? ie; better than 'excellent' which you surely are!!!

Best Regards David Platten x.


Your relaxed and friendly professionalism means that Tim and I felt we had a friend officiate our marriage. A simple 'thank you' is not enough.

Amanda & Tim.

Thank you Gayle for enabling us to have such a beautiful ceremony. Both ourselves and our guests agreed that it was comfortable, friendly and relaxed; the most enjoyable ceremony they had ever been to.

You get 11/10!!! Thank you every so much we so appreciate all you have done for us.

Nat & Emma.

Simon and I are very pleased with the effort and assistance Gayle gave us. It was great to have such a friendly, loving and caring celebrant. Gayle was very helpful in the process of our marriage and we had many compliments from our guests. I would definitely recommend Gayle to my friends.

Thank you, it was a great pleasure to have you Gayle.

Lov Danielle & Simon Richardson.

You did a wonderful job and you helped far beyond your duty!

D Hadly.

Having known Gayle personally for a number of years it was fantastic to have that bit more of a personal touch to our ceremony. Gayle had a very calming affect on us and she has a great sense of humour which was very important to us on our special night. She does a great job and the presentation of documents is outstanding.

Bryanne Collins.

Dear Gayle,

Thank you very much for being a part of our wedding.

You were able to listen to what we wanted and adapt a ceremony that encompassed what was important to us both perfectly. We had many wonderful comments on our ceremony, and we'd like to thank you for all your work.

Dean & Yuki.

Dearest Gayle

Thank you so much for being our Marriage Celebrant at Wellington Point on the 3rd May.

We had such a wonderful day, our ceremony was exactly what we wanted!! Thank you for understanding us so well (even when we couldn't articulate what we wanted!); guiding us when we needed it; and giving us room to tailor the ceremony to really reflect our way of life.

We are still getting compliments about how relaxed, friendly and entertaining our ceremony was – you were so professional and friendly, it was a pleasure to share our special day with you.

We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, please enjoy the photos!

Thank you so much!!

Bas and Tania Goossen.

We would just like to say thank you very much Gayle for making our day so good and special. We cannot thank you enough.

Michael & Miranda.

The bound copy of (our) wedding service was great! Something we will treasure.

Gayle made it so easy and relaxed we will recommend her to anyone.

L & R Dale.

The service was the perfect combination of serious and humour. You really captured the essence of our relationship in our vows.

L Winstone.

We believe that you have performed all your required functions with distinction and beyond that, you have treated us as friends.

Bill & Jules.

We both felt we knew Gayle personally after our first visit with her. We all enjoyed some laughs together both before and on our wedding day. Our witnesses also agreed that Gayle was a special lady and the ceremony was personalised and moving.

Jeanette Rich & Laurie Yekimoff.

Peter and I found Gayle made our wedding complete. She was absolutely wonderful and made our day special. Gayle had a connection with us after meeting with us and created a ceremony that reflected our love for each other. I would recommend Gayle to anybody. Other guests at our wedding also commented on how beautifully she performed our ceremony.

Leonie & Peter Fudge.

Because of Gayle our ceremony was exactly how we imagined it would be. Gayle helped us reflect our personality as an individual and as a couple perfectly with our humourous side but also our loving side as Anthony and I became husband and wife.

Thank you for making our day so special.

Cindy and Anthony Wilson.

Dear Gayle, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special. We also want to thank you for all your hard work and the beautiful package you put together for us.

Best Wishes.

Anthony & Cindy Wilson.

We are so thankful. Everything was just how we wanted it! Adam and I felt so relaxed with Gayle like we had known Gayle for years! Words cannot explain how thankful we are.

Guests loved everything about the ceremony, felt Gayle made it more personal about Adam and I, the wording was perfect, different to any ceremony they had been to. I would highly recommend.

Alicia & Adam Trevethan.

Thank you Gayle for taking the time to meet with us, listen to our desires and create the perfect ceremony to suit us. All our guests loved the ceremony and turned out just as we had hoped.

We wanted a fun and care free wedding ceremony and you certainly helped us achieve that. We have had many comments from our guests that it was the most relaxed and fun ceremony they had ever attended. Just what we wanted. Thank you for helping us to achieve this. It was a day we will never forget thanks to all your hard work.

Gayle, you just made our wedding so enjoyable. You as a person and the service you provided exceeded all expectations we ever had. You were understanding, extremely professional and had a great sense of humour. There is absolutely nothing we would've changed. Keep doing the excellent job you do. You are wonderful. Xxx
Thank you so so very much.

A & J Lally.

Gayle went out of her way to make sure our day was wonderful – she is caring and professional at the same time. Also provided typed copy of our personal ceremony for our keepsake. Very grateful Gayle took the time to personalise our special day.

AHE Brown.

Gayle, you were brilliant. I couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony and every single communication we had with you leading up until then was a pleasure. No request was an issue, and venue and date changes didn't phase you at all! You are truly meant for this job – you single handedly made the ceremony as beautiful and perfect as it was. I'll recommend you to anyone who'll listen to me rant about your professionalism and perfection. (p.s. I'll always treasure the memory of the wink you gave me during the ceremony)

Elise & James.

Thank you Gayle we had a great day.

Kris & Butet.

Gayle, your warmth, understanding and professionalism made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. Between the UK and Australia, it was a slow process at times, but your support has been overwhelming. (Before and after our wedding day).

Words could never really express the gratitude and thanks we have for you.

You're an amazing woman – thank you for playing such a vital role in our day. Without you, it wouldn't have been possible.

All our love.

Carmen & Lee.

Dear Gayle

Love & Best Wishes

Tanya & Lloyd Fien.

Thank you for being with us on our day. You were a pleasure to work with and our day was very relaxed and just what we wanted. You were easy to talk to and we had a lot of fun and laughs from the initial contact to the end of the ceremony.

Sharon Butcher & Allan Hyde.

Hi Gayle

Thank you for the beautiful way you conducted our ceremony. We have been told by so many people that it was the best wedding they have been too! It was certainly the best one I'VE ever been to!! but then perhaps Im biased! It truly was everything we had hoped for and MORE than we expected!


Misty Ackfun.

Dear Gayle

Thank you very much for performing our wedding ceremony, we were absolutely delighted with how it went. We also really appreciate the time and effort you put in before the day.

Thanks again

Rick & Gillian.

To Gayle

Brett and I would like to say a big thank you for marrying us. Everyone enjoyed the service and you made it special for us.

A day we shall remember forever.

Fiona, Brett & Sophie xxx.

Dear Gayle

Our thanks for your friendly guidance and care. Our thanks also for being a part of our wedding.

Graham & Janet.

To Gayle

Thank you so much for making our special day perfect!

Thank you so much!!

Adam, Alicia.

Gayle helped to make our wedding the most incredible day. Thank you so much Gayle.

Dear Gayle

Thank you for being a wonderful, patient, understanding celebrant. We really enjoyed our wedding ceremony and thank you for all your help in making it such a beautiful occasion.

Love Melissa & Christian.

Thank you so much Gayle,

My mum will be so chuffed to hear that!

Both our families and parents felt so blessed with how you had conducted the wedding and Joncia's beautiful settings. I've been told that it will go down in our family's histories as one of the most beautiful and favourite weddings - and this was the sixth wedding in my family alone! But we have you to thank for much of it as you guided us throughout the planning stages and the ceremony content. And the ceremony preparation really helped us to understand and appreciate the depth of what we were doing. Also, dealing with a different culture is not always easy, but you managed to not only pronounce everyone's names well, you showed great respect and consideration. You were so good. And the lovely ceremony folder that you gave us to take away was icing on the cake.

Eddie and I could not have been given a better start to our life journey together, than the one that you helped to provide. Thank you so much! You can definitely quote me as a recommendation for anyone else that will be blessed to have you as part of their special day!!

Much appreciated.

Eddie and Maria.

Dear Gayle,

Thank you so much for all the time, thought and effort that you put into making our son's naming day ceremony so perfect.

All the time you put into typing up the ceremony to add our personal little touches.

All the effort you put into setting up the table and area with our christening cake, sand ceremony pieces and all of your rose petals.

All the thought you put into making our other children feel as much an important part of the day as their brother. With using the sand ceremony ritual they did play a part in it.

Tash (our daughter) commented that night on how nicely you spoke and how she believed you meant the nice things you were saying. She has also enclosed her special note.

Again thank you very much for making Ben's naming day ceremony so special.

Brian, Lynn, Shaun, Lance and Tash.

Dear Gayle

We are so thankful to you for all that you've done for us. We are honoured that it was you who named our daughter

Jane, Mathew & Lucy.
