"Anke is a
true professional, she made our wedding day extremely special
with her bubbly personality and humour! We highly recommend her
to anyone tying the knot"
Fee and Ben
when we first met Anke we felt very much at ease with her and
knew she was the right celebrant for us. Anke spent a lot of
time planning the content and ensured that our wedding ceremony
was perfect for us. On the day, one of the wettest of the
summer, Anke coped with the unbelievable noise of the rain and
we managed to have our ceremony outside as we wanted. The
beautiful hand-fasting part of our ceremony was particularly
symbolic for us, acknowledging our celtic heritage and
signifying the joining of our families. Thank you, Anke, for
giving our ceremony the significance we wanted"!
Susan and Seamus
"Anke, you made the happiest day of our lives extra special with
your very moving ceremony, your great delivery and your fabulous
personality which made the day. You are great. Thank you!"
Louise and Rodney
"Anke, we just want to say a huge big thank
you for doing such a fantastic job with our ceremony! Everyone
has made the most beautiful comments about you! They all thought
you were fantastic! And so did we! You are a brilliantcelebrant
and we are so proud and honoured to have had you marry us"
Denise and Fraser
"Thank you, Anke! Not only were you attentive
to every detail which made our ceremony perfect, you also made
us feel like we were the only people in the world to go through
this and felt so special. We had so many comments from our
guests that said that you were such an amazing celebrant and
that it was truly such a lovely ceremony. Some of them could not
believe how captivating you were with the way you delivered it
with your voice an mannerisms.
Anke - thank you, it was such an amazing day for us that you
helped make it happen."
Rebecca and Brent
"We had Anke marry us recently and she was
excellent. Throughout she was warm, imaginative, highly
organised, professional and most importantly FUN. She listened
carefully to all our requests, helped us choose readings and
presented us with a draft of the ceremony in advance to ensure
it was exactly what we wanted. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend
her on the highest terms to anyone. (She also makes a pretty
mean carrot cake as well!! :)"
James and Megan
performed our wedding ceremony, although the weather wasn't what
we wanted, every aspect of the ceremony was perfect. Anke
listened to what we wanted and made the whole process very
relaxing and stressless. We had many people comment how clear
speaking, professional yet fun Anke was(and how it was nice to
see a celebrant dressed like she was at a wedding not a office
job!). We wouldn't hesitate in recommending her services to
friends and family."
Thank you again for a wonderful day,
Meghan and Blanton
was the celebrant for our wedding in March 2009, on board a
launch off the beach at Cathedral Cove in Hahei, Coromandel
Peninsular. She is a lovely person, thorough in making sure all
requirements were met, she provided us with a range of text
options, guidance as to how we would structure our ceremony,
what we may or may not wish to include as part of our vows to
each other, suggested including the children as part of our
ceremony. We and our guests thought it was a lovely, moving and
very special ceremony. We would be very confident to recommend
Anke as a celebrant.
Peter and Cara
the most professional, efficient, friendly and stylish celebrant
we could have asked for! Her attention to detail and ability to
relate to all involved was apparent from the first time we met
her. But the best feedback is from guests, who have commented
that she was the best celebrant they’ve ever seen! Thank you Anke for making our day so fantastic!
Craig and Toni
you so much for making our day so wonderful. We were so lucky to
have you as our celebrant, from the moment we met, you made us
feel so relaxed and at ease! You made the whole experience so
enjoyable and special, not just for us, but for the whole
wedding party! Through all the hiccups with our venue, you were
our rock. Taking time out and just going above and beyond for
us. Anke, you are a very special lady and we are so grateful we
found you to marry us! You are perfect for the role and I know
you will continue to make couples as happy as you made us!
Manuela and Ashley
From the moment we first met
Anke over the phone she was warm, enthusiastic and professional.
She kept us organised and on track so that our ceremony ran
smoothly and was not one of those last minute stressors! Anke
listened to what we wanted and made the whole process fun. Many
of our friends and family commented on how good she was. She has
a wonderful speaking manner and a lovely personality. We
wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
Thank you for the excellent
ceremony, Anke! You did a great job and many people commented
that it was one of the best ceremonies they had witnessed!
We wanted a modern and light, yet
heartfelt ceremony and Anke listened and understood our needs.
She was very helpful in designing the ceremony and it was
perfect – about us, but also including our three children.
Anke’s warmth and friendliness are her greatest assets, but she
is also very efficient and organised and made sure that we were,
too, in the gentlest possible way! I would recommend Anke to
anyone, she was great!
Nicky and Kenton
Thanks so much for your part
in our special day, you were just lovely and made it so nice and
relaxing for us. We had such a perfect day and hope you enjoyed
sharing it with us. Such a great part of the world! We would
definitely recommend you to family and friends in the future.
Charlotte and Jonny
"Words of appreciation from a bereaved
Anke, where do I begin? The shock of loosing
our mum, and the deep sadness was very fresh when we first met.
You brought us together and gently guided us through starting to
talk about who mum was and the legacy she left behind in
preparation for her funeral.
What should have been a difficult process, you turned into a
therapeutic one. Your genuine nature instantly assured us that
you were the right one to honor our mum in a celebration of her
Our wishes, thoughts and requests felt appreciated and respected
by you as we collaborated on the service.
Your soft presence as we gathered the courage to stand up and
speak at the ceremony was comforting. Thank you for honouring
our mum in such a special way. It is truly appreciated.
Kathy (daughter of Gaylene and Bruce B, January 2012)
