Robyn & Michael
"We had the lovely Rose conduct our Wedding Ceremony. Everything went to plan, from the first moment Michael and I met with Rose – we clicked within the first 5 min and we felt we had known Rose for ages. She is such an easy going lady – super friendly and her lovely face just makes you feel so welcome when she is around. Rose had everything organised and kept in touch on a regular basis – she encouraged us to express our individuality especially with the music chosen by our 2 girls. We have gained a lovely friend and highly recommend Rose."

"Rose guided us gently through the decisions that made Mark's farewell a real celebration of his life.
Your professional and empathetic support made the ceremony calm and dignified. Rose added the extra touches, including learning a Danish phrase to honour Mark's friends.
Thank you Rose for sharing your knowledge and love.
You made this sad occasion much easier for us."
"Rose did an outstanding job conducting our wedding. We had a few minor hiccups along the way, but Rose made it all so easy. She remained calm and joyful and with her amazing empathy, kindness and great sense of humour the Wedding went even better than we had imagined.
Rose is the most lovely person and is definitely in the right job. We would recommend Rose for your needs and feel rather blessed to have Rose in our lives."

"Rose did an excellent job officiating at the wedding of my partner and I. The whole event ran smoothly with no complications. Hopefully, I never need her service again but would thoroughly recommend her!"

"Rose sensitively and gently led us through the options and decision-making to plan Marlene’s life celebration. She was one of our ‘behind the scenes’ rocks. Rose listened to our ideas and helped us find a way to have what we wanted. The ceremony had a feeling of serenity alongside our grief and was entirely what Marlene would have wanted. Thanks Rose."
Carol & Nick Talley
"Nick and I wanted a small private wedding at the place we both love in the Abel Tasman.
This meant Rose had to catch a water taxi into the National Park. Rose arrived on the boat all prepared with her backpack and in her bare feet, she understood completely the mood we were looking for.
We had a lovely ceremony, we were very relaxed with Rose and enjoyed our small wedding. While we were looking for a simple ceremony I’m quite sure Rose would be wonderful at a more formal affair too. She is a people person and would fit in, in any situation.
Thank you Rose for making our day special."
"I belong to a group of friends who have known each other for many years. Recently we asked Rose to be Celebrant at our Wise Woman ceremony. We wished to acknowledge and support those in the group facing serious life challenges as well as to reflect on the value of friendship, and the strength and support that it brings. Rose has a relaxed, thoughtful, gentle and engaging manner which brought a sense of fun to the ceremony without diminishing the more serious purpose. Afterwards, we felt bound together in friendship anew, with wishes and wisdoms for the group affirmed. Thanks Rose for creating the ceremony that gave us exactly what we were seeking to achieve.

Jess & Ben Fowler
"We want to thank Rose so much for being a part of our day. With her help, we had an absolutely amazing day. Rose made it really easy for both Ben and I. She helped make the prep as stress-free as possible and helped with keeping us calm enough to keep talking on the day."
