Freya and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for last Friday and everything you did for us before then. You were incredibly understanding and kind at a pretty emotional time for us both. We’ve had a number of people comment on how relaxed and beautiful the ceremony was, and what a fantastic job you did. You managed to put us both at ease, which is no small feat!
Nick and Freya, December 2018
We can’t recommend Zana highly enough. She is wonderfully kind, professional, flexible and warm. Like having your wisest, most grown-up and organised friend by your side. She had originally agreed to be our “backup” celebrant, as a friend of ours was racing to complete the training in time for our wedding. When it became clear that circumstances were going to prevent this from happening, Zana stepped up and took on our ceremony, and we’re really glad we chose her. She was very open to enabling and incorporating our ideas, but also confident in her experience and wisdom. She made the ceremonial aspect of our wedding a naturally flowing, calm and joyful occasion and we are so pleased and grateful that she was a part of it.
Bec and Liv, October 2018
We were so happy to have Zana as our celebrant! She has a warm, bright and calm approach with a lovely speaking voice and presence. Leading up to the wedding she encouraged and helped us to make a very personal ceremony that was so special to us. Throughout the process and on the day she always had time for us and nothing was too much effort. Everyone commented how beautiful the ceremony was and we couldn’t have been happier 🙂 Thanks Zana!
Jo and Ash, August 2018
Zana was instrumental in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. With relatively little input from us (we are quite relaxed in this regard) she tailored a ceremony that was perfect for our occasion and really captured our individual spirits. She brought with her a wealth of experience, smoothly guiding the ceremony with finite attention to detail while also keeping the occasion very relaxed, organic and intimate. She added masses of warmth to the occasion and we would highly recommend Zana for anyone’s special occasion.
Aiden and Rachel, April 2018
Planning our wedding was so incredibly unfamiliar, exciting and terrifying! Upon first contact with Zana we knew she was exactly who we wanted to stand by our sides on our happiest of days! Her kindness, openness, understanding and patience, along with her wealth of knowledge and professionalism made us feel so confident. The entire time up until the wedding day Zana had fantastic communication with us and made herself available to our copious amounts of questions! The ceremony went so smooth and Zana helped us make it the casual, fun and loving environment that we strived for. We cannot thank Zana enough and cannot recommend her more.
Ben and Ash, March 2018
Trying to organise a wedding ceremony in Hobart whilst living in Brisbane we thought would be a nightmare but Zana made the entire experience smooth and effortless from our side. She was available for any questions we had and orgnaised all the paperwork and details so that we didn’t need to worry about it all. She even managed to get mother nature to behave for the day! All of our guests said it was a lovely relaxing and personalised ceremony, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks for being a part of our day Zana!
Amber and Ian, March 2018
Zana, thank you so much for making our Wedding just perfect. You were just the right fit for Massimo and I, and we really think you helped us overcome some of the obstacles that arose in the lead up to our big day!! When it comes to one of the most important days of your life, it helps to have someone to bounce things off. Your relaxed and broad minded approach really helped us.

Zana, we want to thank you for your generosity and for your knowledge of knowing what we needed even when we didn’t. The little tips and thoughtfulness you put into our special day from the first meeting with you made the process very memorable for us. Our ceremony though tiny was emotional for us and we felt as though you were a friend who had turned up to enjoy the moment with us. We will and have recommended you to many people since. Please keep doing what you’re doing and sharing your lovely spirit.
Stuart and Chloe, November 2017
Hi Zana. A big thank you for helping in making our wedding a great day. The ceremony was just what we wanted, obviously Mother Nature wasn’t that keen but it all worked out and everyone commented on how nice the ceremony was.
Bec and Rod, November 2017
We were so happy we chose you to be our Celebrant for our wedding. Your professionalism, organisational ability and warm and friendly manner, put us at ease from start to finish. Thank you for helping make our day so special and memorable.
Jenny and Rob, May 2017
Being from Melbourne and having our first celebrant needing to cancel – Cameron and I weren’t sure what to expect. After our first phone conversation, we knew that fate had thrown us to Zana. You are professional, warm, friendly and just an overall great person to deal with. You were always in contact with us and no question would go unanswered. Our guests found you to be wonderful and informative. We were so lucky to have found you because you helped make our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted! We couldn’t recommend you enough! Thank you so much Zana!
Kirsten and Cameron, February 2017
Being from Melbourne, we found Zana online and didn’t know what to expect. Our first phone conversation together instantly had us at ease as she was everything that you want in a celebrant – professional, sincere and funny. She expertly guided us through the process so that on the day itself, our ceremony was so much more than we could ever have expected and hoped for. Zana – we want to thank you for not just being our celebrant but rather the creator of the most beautiful ceremony that we will treasure forever.
Mark and Gail, February 2017
Planning the wedding, we did not understand the importance of a wedding celebrant, but thankfully a good friend referred us to Zana. From the first meeting we really liked her calm and logical approach which made the whole procedure very easy. She encouraged us to include as many personal things as possible, which she later brilliantly formed into a beautiful ceremony. We were quite surprised that ceremonies do not have to be long and boring but actually whatever is important to us. We can wholeheartedly recommend Zana, as without her, we would not have had an amazing ceremony.
Thank you so much.
Doreen and Martin, February 2017
We felt your caring and open approach to our wedding preparations and the day itself, suited us perfectly. During the build up you provided us with great advice on how to create our individualised ceremony, including example ceremonies and draft content for our day. But most importantly you shaped to ceremony completely accommodating our taste. We found it quite nice that you gave us the complete spotlight on the “alter”, ensuring the day was all about us, but also provided us close support during the crucial moments. We must say also, your PA was audible to all of our guests, which can be a common shortcoming at weddings.
Many thanks for making our day complete.
Jenna and Nic, February 2016
Hi Zana, just a quick email from Jacinta and I to say thank you very much for everything. We had an amazing day/night. Everything was perfect. You were an amazing celebrant and very professional. Will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to tie the knot in the future.
Ed and Jacinta, February 2016
Dear Zana, I just wanted to say a massive Thank You from both Tom and myself! I have to say our ceremony was wonderful and everything that we hoped it would be. Also thank you for all your help leading up to our special day. You made everything so very easy and we both felt that you understood exactly where we were both coming from. I am so happy that I found you!
Tessa and Tom, February 2016
Our ceremony was everything we dreamed it to be and Zana really played a big role in that. Living interstate we were worried that it would be difficult to organise our ceremony. However Zana made the process very simple and guided us through the process with chances for us to get to know her through email and by Skype. She also made time to meet us when we came down to Tasmania on two occasions prior to the wedding. The ceremony contained a very personal touch, with Zana blending our comments made about each other into a story of our relationship and how our love grew over time. Our ceremony was very touching and our guests all remarked on how great it was, there weren’t many dry eyes in the crowd. We would sincerely like to thank Zana for the part that she played in bringing such a magical moment to life.
Tegan and Tom, January 2016
Dear Zana, I am writing to thank you for being our celebrant. Your warm and friendly manner, matched with your professionalism, meant that we felt comfortable and at ease with you at every stage of the process; from our very first meeting with you, right up until, and including, the moment our ceremony took place. You were very generous with your time, from meetings and email correspondences to rehearsals at our venue. Your expert knowledge, and the guidance you gave us about our legal obligations, as well as your advice on how to create the ceremony that would be the most meaningful to us, instilled us with great confidence and meant our ceremony was perfect for us. The ceremony you wrote for us reflected our personalities, our wishes for our wedding day, and our hopes for the future. On our wedding day your presence set us at ease, and you ensured that everything ran smoothly. You assisted our daughter to play a meaningful role, and you made sure that our family and friends felt included. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful celebrant you are.
Our wedding day was the happiest day of our lives, and you were a key part of creating such a happy day for us. Thank you for everything.
Denise and John, January 2016
Zana was the perfect celebrant for us – fitting into the relaxed mood we wanted for our wedding, embracing all the quirky ideas we wanted to incorporate, and paying extra attention to detail so that everything went to plan. From our first meeting in a coffee shop, we knew that her warm, calm presence was something that would suit our ceremony. She provided gentle guidance when we were indecisive and tolerated the myriad changes we made to our wording and vows along the way. Above all, she was exceptionally organised and incredibly punctual on the day itself – despite the entire east coast experiencing the worst storm of the century!
We are stoked she was a part of our wedding and cannot be happier with our decision to involve her as our celebrant. Newly engaged couples – we cannot recommend her highly enough!
Helena and Josh, January 2016
Zana was absolutely amazing, so warm and bubbly. She was an absolute asset to our wedding and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended and a pleasure to have had her be such a huge part of our day.
Trudy and Jason, January 2016
“Listen to Zana, she is always right!!!… Throughout the process from the moment we inquired, She has bent over backwards to make the process simple, not stressful, very informative regarding ideas and processes and above anything else she has been so supportive and always available. I feel that she has been more like a friend than a service to our marriage. Although we didn’t get to catch up as friends she was, and still is always available to talk to through multiple communications. I think the level of care and detail was impeccable as she researched both of us to provide us with the best service she could. Above all you can see that this just isn’t a job to her, it is something she is obviously passionate about and it really shows. We were both really pleased.”
Renee and Garnz, January 2016
“Upon approaching Zana with little more than an idea that we wanted to write our own vows, and have a ‘non-traditional’ wedding, she was able to guide us through the process seamlessly. Zana was friendly, relaxed and attentive, and offered a balance of encouragement and support, while giving us the freedom to find exactly what we wanted. She was more than happy to help incorporate our fur-baby into the ceremony, and seemed excited by our own individual twist on things, such as playing ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ to see who’d say their vows first.
Thank you Zana for helping make our day fabulous in exactly the way we wanted it to be. With tears and laughter, we had a wonderful ceremony that will be remembered fondly by us and our loved ones for many years.”
Kate and Bryce, May 2015
“We would like to thank you very much for the amazing job you did with the preparation and execution of our wedding ceremony. From the very first meeting we felt very at ease working with you to create our personalised ceremony. Your professionalism in being highly organised, well resourced, and your friendly, gentle manner made it a pleasure to work with you. We wanted to create a personalised ceremony and your non-judgemental approach, with a willingness to give advice when requested made us feel in control of designing our ceremony the way we wanted it and we also felt supported as we had no idea what elements to incorporate. The feedback we received from our guests after the ceremony was all positive, with special mentions in regard to honouring the memory of my mum and the bit about marriage equality, both which I requested be added to our ceremony.
We will miss working with you now it is all done and we will definitely be recommending your services to all of our friends. We wish you the best in the future.”
Serene and Matt, April 2015
“We searched long and hard for a celebrant that we thought would not only suit but enhance our special day. Zana was referred to us by a couple of friends and we were so impressed with everything she did for us. Zana helped and guided us through the planning of our ceremony preparations while still encouraging us to do everything our way. On the actual day Zana helped to keep us both calm but excited which in turn helped to create the wonderfully relaxed yet fun atmosphere we had always hoped for. Zana goes above and beyond the task at hand to ensure that your wedding is the dream day you always imagined.
We cannot thank or recommend her highly enough.”
Em and Jim, March 2015
“There is absolutely nothing I would have changed about the way you handled before the ceremony or the ceremony itself. I think you did a fantastic job listening to what we wanted, were very good at translating our very poor notes into a ceremony including lovely vows, and you made the whole process very easy. I thought you did a wonderful job during the ceremony. Thanks again!”
Lucy and Robbie, March 2015
“Zana was an amazing choice of celebrant for our laid back ceremony. We wanted something very short, and Zana pulled together a ceremony which was incredibly beautiful and moving in very few words. Zana was great at listening to what we wanted, and made the whole process incredibly smooth. We had lots of feedback from guests on how wonderful our ceremony was, and indeed some close friends were so impressed they had to have Zana for their own wedding!”
Bindi and Sam, February 2015
“We want to thank you for your very important part in making our day so special. You were the perfect ‘fit’ for us as our celebrant, with your modern flexible approach and ready smile! We really enjoyed working with you to come up with our perfect ceremony and were thrilled with how it all turned out on the day! Thank you so much!”
Flic and Matt, February 2015
“Zana has such a calm, warm and inviting presence. From the outset, she was very approachable and our initial meetings with her were comfortable and straight forward. Prior to and during the ceremony Zana was well prepared and reassuring. Highly recommended!”
Elka and Tom, January 2015
“Marty and I cannot speak highly enough of you as a celebrant. You’re a friendly, easy going person who was happy to meet our needs. Prior to our wedding you made it easy for us to contact you. You were flexible as our ideas evolved and provided lots of information to help us plan our day. You worked hard to make a special ceremony for us and our family. Thank you so much for all that you did. We will be recommending you highly to friends in the future!”
Nika and Marty, December 2014
“Zana is a warm and generous person and we only needed to meet Zana once to know that she was the right fit for our wedding. We were immediately at ease as Zana walked us through the ceremony format including the legalities and preparing a ceremony that would suit us (even including our fur-kid!). Zana took the time to get to know us and provided us with many different options for our ceremony with example vows and readings to help get our ideas flowing. Because of Zana, we had a beautiful ceremony that was personal and exactly what we had imagined. Zana checked in with our photographer and the DJ to ensure the ceremony ran smoothly and we loved the pretty ceremony booklet that we received as a keepsake of our special day.
Thank you for helping make our day so perfect.”
Leah & James, November 2014
“Zana made our day easy peasy. She assisted us with making our day really our own. We had an unconventional ceremony and really appreciated Zana’s enthusiasm and knowledge to help make our day that bit more special and unique.”
Cindy and Dwuan, September 2014
“Your kind help with preparations, the simplicity of the ceremony and your warmth as celebrant made our special day just the way we had hoped it would be.”
Grant and Luise, September 2014
