We were really happy with Filia as our celebrant. She was always warm, friendly, relaxed and helpful. Nothing was ever a problem for her. She was happy to come to us when we were busy. Was always in contact with us by email (which was our preferred way as we were not often by our phones). Filia was happy to change the ceremony until it was just what we wanted and was happy with a last minute change right before the ceremony. She reminded us of all the practical things we needed and we would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Filia for being a part of our day!

Filia was amazing on our day she made the process so relaxed and easy.
She was more than accomodating on our ideas and help us calm our nerves as public speaking isn’t our thing. Highly recommended no questions asked.

Will recommend you to our friends!

Filia was chosen as our celebrant from this website. We meet with her and she had some great ideas. From there we decided to have her as our celebrant. Our wedding was a short-notice one as had 6 weeks. Filia helped us organise a relaxed backyard wedding and it was perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Filia is one of the kindest, warmest and genuine people I have met for a long time. She made our day memorable and personal, and we cannot recommend her enough for anyone looking for a celebrant. She got many positive comments from our guests too!

We had a fantastic ceremony with Filia.
Everything was arranged with her in plenty of time and exactly how we wanted it. All the options and possible contingencies were discussed between the three of us and our plan was great. Filia was in email and text contact with us as per our agreement and she was always ready and organised.
The day of our wedding was wet so option C came in to play and that worked out just fab. Filia was full of smiles and laughs as we both were. She made sure we were comfortable and relaxed along with doing all the official bits so we could have a great ceremony.
We both highly recommend Filia - she made our wedding perfect.
Wedding Date: April 18, 2014

We didn’t want a stuffy/boring celebrant and upon meeting Filia we knew we had found the perfect match for us!! She helped us create a ceremony that was unique and perfect for us and provided endless support to us through the process from start to finish. It was so easy! Filia has a personable and accommodating approach, a fantastic sense of humour and is incredibly professional.
We can’t thank Filia enough for making our wedding ceremony absolutely amazing. We would recommend her to anyone.
Wedding Date: March 8, 2014
Filia was fantastic from start to finish. She helped us to write a ceremony that was personal and unique to us. We felt supported and relaxed because Filia has a calming presence. The whole ceremony was professional and went smoothly. Many of our friends and family commented that it was the nicest wedding they had ever attended. We are really grateful to Filia for helping to make it such a truly special day!
Wedding Date: February 8, 2014
We saw Filia’s reviews on this website and thought she sounded like our ideal celebrant. We met at her house initially and discussed what we wanted in a celebrant, she shared her knowledge and told us what to expect and from there we agreed she was perfect! Following this meeting we received her sample ideas and did some brainstorming ourselves on what we would like to include in our ceremony. We then met a couple more times, had a rehearsal at the venue and low and behold, it was wedding day. The whole ceremony process was smooth and seamless. We felt we had the knowledge we needed for our day. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect celebrant - we would recommend her to any couples.

We have no hesitation in recommending her to any one.

We found Filia after Googling for a marriage celebrant and found her website. We found her service was very good; efficient, organised and accommodating. Would recommend to all.
Wedding Date: March 2, 2013
Wow! Filia was perfect for our wedding from day one when we first met with her.
She was relaxed, listened carefully, provided great advice and had a great sense of humour.
She replied to all our questions promptly whenever we had any, which was rarely as she had covered off everything so well previously.
On the day the ceremony was amazing, the professionalism was obvious however even more so was the sense of calm and happiness which she was instrumental in creating.
Given the opportunity we would happily recommend Filia to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Thank you so so much Filia from both of us.
Wedding Date: February 16, 2013
Filia was absolutely wonderful, so easy to deal with and the ceremony ran exactly as we had discussed in our initial meetings. It made our day that much more special to have someone who just fitted in perfectly

All the information you provided was awesome, totally recommended.
Thank you again for your assistance.
Wedding Date: 9th February 2013
We hired Filia over a year ago and we were so impressed with her. She made our day unique and special with her easy going approach.
Filia started off with meeting us (no hard sell), sending us some samples and then assisting with the draft of our ceremony. It was all so easy.
Wedding Date: January 12, 2013
Filia performed our civil union and we are so glad we chose her. The time leading up to the ceremony was professional and seamless. She had heaps of great ideas and her whole personna was happy, helpful and accommodating. We had many comments and still come today, some 8months later that it was the best “wedding” ever attended. Many thanks to Filia, as on the day she quietly and wonderfully conducted a beautiful ceremony, touching many and making the whole day memorable for us for all the right reasons. Thank you Filia.

She is easy going, friendly and very professional. We highly recommend Filia to anybody looking for a celebrant. Thanks again Scott and Meredith
Wedding Date: November 19, 2011
myself and my wife chose Filia as our wedding celebrant as she understood exactly what we were looking for and she went about everything in such a nice relaxed fashion, we also liked the fact that she was close to our age.
when the big day came Filia was great.
she arrived on time and was very organised.
Filia was a pleasure to have around.
as we only had 20 guests at our wedding we wanted someone that was relaxed and able to fit in well without standing out too much, Fila done that nicely.
Overall Filia was everything we hoped for, she played a major part in our day but she done so in a subtle way. perfect. i’d recommend Filia services to anyone.
Wedding Date: January 28, 2012
I would highly recommend Filia for your celebration as we found her so friendly and accommodating. We had a rather unusual out of town wedding and Filia was immediately on board with our plans. She was happy to travel to the venue before the wedding to have a run through and of course happy to travel again on the day. She was so friendly and willing to go with what we wanted but also it was brilliant to have her input on all the things we didn’t know about. We plan to renew our vows at some stage and hope that Filia can be a part of that because she played such a big part in making our day as awesome as it was!
Wedding Date: March 10, 2012
Filia is a great celebrant, she was very professional, very friendly and presented herself well. Filia has a great sense of homour and spoke in a very clear voice which was great as we got married by the beach. For the service she gave us lots of options and advice and totally went along with what ever we wanted. I would have her again in a flash…. But of course I am not getting married again.
Wedding Date: December 1, 2012
We would highly recommend Filia to any couple wishing to tie the knot!
We chose to have a short traditional ceremony, non-religious and family friendly. Filia helped us to write our own ceremony , including offerings of poems, songs and extra fun moments. We also announced our pregnancy through the ceremony and Filia was more than obliging to incorporate this too!
A fantastic, friendly celebrant. An easy going, approachable lady, full of knowledge, patience and a great sense of humour.
Wedding Date: December 17, 2011
Originally obtained Filia’s details from www.celebrant.co.nz and met with her within a week or so. Right from the get-go she was welcoming and very approachable. As this was our first wedding we didn’t know what to expect, and she provided step-by-step advice from organisation of ceremony to obtaining the marriage licence. I liked Filia’s approach; happy, pleasant and willing to provide assistance right through to the wedding day.
I have no hesitation in recommending her.
