Sarah performed our wedding ceremony in April and did an absolutely amazing job. We had so many comments from guests about how good she was and how much they enjoyed the service. Sarah had great ideas for unique items to include, and was open to providing as much or as little guidance as we needed (which turned out to be a lot!!). I’m so glad we had Sarah with us both on the day and the lead up; she put us both at ease and directed everything beautifully. Could not recommend a more lovely lady x

When searching for a wedding celebrant, I knew I had to have someone who was fun, relaxed, supportive, eloquent (but not over the top) and completely professional - all qualities you will most definitely find in Sarah!
Right from our initial meeting, my husband and I knew that she was exactly the person we were after. She made us feel comfortable, took the time to find out about us, plus she really knows her stuff!
Her wedding ceremony was personalised to us beautifully, it felt like she had known us for ages! She incorporated all the important parts that we wanted and structured the ceremony perfectly, with all aspects in appropriate and well thought out places.
Before and after the ceremony, Sarah interacted so positively with us, family and our guests, making us (and them) feel special and important - most importantly she has a lovely calming presence! The little touches, like the support she offered my mum as she was struggling with the emotion of the day while doing her reading, was so comforting!
My parents still RAVE about how wonderful Sarah is and I have had several of my guests ask for her details. She has also completed a family name giving for a member of our family and unsurprisingly did a wonderful job of that too!
She really is such a humble, genuine person who will make your day wonderful!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sarah to anyone! Go for it. you won’t regret it!
Thank you so much Sarah for the huge part you played in making our day so successful!

What a lovely, relaxed, organised, fun person Sarah is. All her special qualities shone through before and during our ceremony.
Having been to so many weddings ourselves, we knew it was important to us to have a celebrant who made the ceremony feel relaxed and personal. Sarah did this to perfection. We knew from the first meeting that she was ‘the one’. She definitely has a talent for what she does, she thinks of everything and we truly felt like a friend was marrying us.
Many of our guests commented on how amazing she was and how she created a beautiful relaxed ceremony. It made us so happy to hear that our guest enjoyed it as much as we did!
We just hope our paths cross again with her one day.

We were recommended to go with Sarah by one of the Canterbury wineries that we looked at as a venue, and we were so glad we did. I think our favourite part about Sarah, other than her generally kind demeanour, is the way she listened to us. We were so pleasantly surprised when she emailed the draft of our story to us for mark-up and had captured all of the details beautifully, just as we’d said.
We felt very much at ease throughout the process and in very safe hands. We got a real sense that Sarah cared about us and our marriage, and were disappointed when she left after the ceremony! - she felt like a friend by then and we would have loved her to of stuck around and celebrate with us.

We had the pleasure of having Sarah as our wedding celebrant and we couldn’t of wished for a better person. Sarah took the time to get to know us both and created a ceremony that represented us both.

Mike and I just wanted to say a big thank you for being our most wonderful celebrant. You did a fantastic job, we all felt at ease, and it went like clockwork. The kids, in particular, felt really clear on what they needed to do, and were comfortable and happy, which is always important to us. Your guidance through the whole process was just amazing - we really had no idea what to expect!
So again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you ever need a recommendation etc (although we’ve told everyone about you already!) please come straight to us.
With all our best wishes and a million thank you’s!

Sarah did a truly amazing job as our celebrant. We cannot recommend her enough. Her personality is perfect for the job, she is warm, friendly, helpful, flexible, professional and simply a joy to be around. She made the whole experience stress-free and fun. The ceremony itself was very personal to us as a couple and light-hearted and fun which suited us perfectly. We had so many guests tell us how much they enjoyed our ceremony and it was the best they had ever seen! We wish Sarah all the very best for her future as a celebrant, we are sure she will do well and make many a couples’ day!
Thanks again so much Sarah, Mel and Rod Brown.

Sarah was the perfect celebrant for our wedding. Thoughtful, accepting, warm and funny, Sarah is just a joy to have around. We got so many wonderful comments about our lovely celebrant, who really made our ceremony that extra bit special and I cannot recommend her enough.

Sarah Gnad was our fantastic celebrant who incorporated our relationship story into a quirky and humorous ceremony. She took away any nerves we had with her confident speaking and warm presence. Our guests were intently listening to Sarah with her well written words and they all had a good laugh too! Most guests commented on how they loved the ceremony when this can sometimes be the ‘boring’ part of the day. We enjoyed every minute of it and wish we could do it all again with Sarah by our side. We want to thank Sarah for listening to our wants and needs and turning our ceremony from being a bit of a chore into an enjoying and memorable start to our marriage. Highly recommend Sarah who brings a fresh new lease to ceremonies!

Sarah, you were amazing! You devoted yourself completely to us and totally encapsulated Kevin and I as individuals and as the couple we are. Your care, support and knowledge was outstanding and we couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you so much for all that you did for us and for being apart of our beginning.

Sarah invested herself in our wedding some months prior with an interview that left us feeling in safe hands: she was personable, keen, compassionate and asked intelligent questions of both of us. In the next interview Sarah had taken things we mentioned some months before, but couldn’t remember, and had begun to shape them into the bones of a wedding ceremony that we were fairly happy with. Getting closer to the date she communicated with us, took time to absorb our questions, comments and queries and created a plan for our day. Two days out, I decided to bugger it all up by writing half our ceremony in prose. Sarah’s response was to incorporate my fast ball and paper over the small balls-up that I had left (by not including a kiss of the bride).
My recommendation of Sarah as celebrant is considered and critical. We were left in no doubt that we had an absolute plum. I recommend Sarah for any couple with or without a clue as to how they want things. Brilliant, beautiful and relateable, Sarah was ideal for us.
Wedding Date: January 12, 2013
Sarah was a joy to have as our celebant, she was flexible in meeting us and worked what we wanted into the Ceremony with ease.
We would gladly recommend her to a couple wanting a celebrant to assist in making their special day as enjoyable and memorable as possible

Sarah was the perfect person to be our marriage celebrant. Living in Melbourne and trying to organise a ceremony could have been challenging but Sarah was organised, thoughtful and really gave us a lot of great ideas and advice to make our vows personalised and special. The way she met with me briefly then captured our personalities perfectly to weave into the day was very impressive. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Wedding Date: December 22, 2012
