Bronwen met with my fiance and I, and we outlined what kind of ceremony we would like, and when she sent a first draft, we were ecstatic that she had encapsulated our thoughts so well with the poems and readings. We sent our vows to her separately, and our friends sent their readings that she incorporated into the ceremony for us, and which would help to make it a lovely surprise, and she ensured that it all flowed well, and set a lovely tone. Our day was incredible and she was able to help us remain relaxed and happy, and so many of our family and friends commented on how she gave such a personable, lovely ceremony, which beautifully and seamlessly incorporated our guests on the day. I would highly recommend Bronwen for such a special occasion, as she has such a beautiful presence.

Bronwen was an incredible celebrant. She took the time to get to know us and what was unique to our relationship. We were lucky to see her in action at a few other weddings and her ability to reflect the energy and personality of different couples was amazing. On the big day she made me feel relaxed and her warmth and love for what she does shone through. She even consulted my wife to ensure what she was wearing didn't clash or stick out! We are truly grateful for the experience and the ceremony was one of our favourite parts of the day. Thank you Bronwen!

Bronwen is a thoughtful, thorough and friendly celebrant. During the lead-up to our day she always had time for us and we never felt 'out of the loop'. When called upon she gave us useful suggestions and a good variety of options, and all the while was easy to work with. We really felt Bronwen got to know us personally and this translated well during the ceremony.

We were so very happy with what Bronnie provided us with. She made the wedding so memorable and truly had a fabulous rapport with the crowd and us. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant! Thank you for making our already special day even more special!

When our mother died a few months ago we chose Bronwen to be the celebrant for her funeral. Thanks to Bronwen our wonderful Mum was given the most beautiful send off. Bronwen immersed herself in the life of our Mum and created a superb and unique celebration of her life. It was everything that someone so loved, and so important in our lives, deserved, and more. Through the entire process Bronwen was deeply sensitive to our grief and supportive of what each member of the family needed to properly say goodbye. The highest praise we can give is that after the funeral, Dad asked Bronwen to officiate at his funeral when the time comes for him to join our Mum. Thank you so much Bronwen.

GARY G

I just wanted to say an enormous heartfelt thank you, for leading such a beautiful celebration of our sister's life on Monday. It was very sad for all of us but you were wonderful, managing to strike just the right tone for the service. I really felt you had made sure you knew as much as you could about our sister to make it meaningful to all of us who knew her so well. And I really appreciated your ability to cope with the last minute additions at a late hour on Sunday night, not to mention giving up some of your precious time earlier in the day to meet us for brunch!

Bronnie's warmth, love and care is unlike any other. She welcomed us with open arms and put her whole heart into everything she did for us. We will be forever grateful for her presence, in what was the happiest day of our lives. We are blessed to know her and to have been touched by her kindness.

Bronnie made our special day perfect. We loved getting to know her over the course of our preparations and the ceremony was exactly what we had envisioned. Thank you so much.

SURYA V

Best wedding ever, was what our guests were saying, thanks to our celebrant Bronwen. She made our wedding so personal, funny in places and very touching in others... just perfect sums her up. You couldn't ask for a better celebrant. Bronwen went above and beyond to make our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect.

CATHY S

Bronwen was absolutely wonderful every step of the way, providing advice when appropriate and always really listening to us. Magical ceremony by Bronwen!

CYN W

Bronnie was great to work with, she made our day, so easy, full of fun and laughter. 
Bronnie allowed us to make the ceremony truly our own, and memorable for us.
We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant who is so warm and giving.
The only part of our wedding that was truly about us was the ceremony and Bronnie made sure we felt absolutely every special moment of the ceremony, we absolutely loved having her part of our day.
So Deb and I can't thank her enough..

ASHLEY L

Bronwen James met with us several times to plan the details of our wedding. She was completely flexible in accommodating our no frills approach and in accommodating the structure of our vows. She took some initiative in ending the event with a beautiful Celtic Blessing and made us feel completely special and respected. We couldn't have asked for a better person to perform this function in our lives!

RALPH B

Bronnie is absolutely brilliant. She made time for us and sacrificed time in a personal event to fit us in which we sincerely appreciated. Bronnie put in a great deal of effort over many hours to get to know the real us, we never felt rushed and she was always truly genuinely interested. She is a rare gem who is very passionate about her work. We have also had very positive feedback from friends and family who attended our wedding. I would highly recommend her for your special day.

JAMES G

Bronnie did a great job as our celebrant. We both felt very respected and supported throughout the process, from the initial skilful and sensitive conversation and her ability to draw out and reflect back to us what we share and value; her understated (but persistent!) approach to the legal/paperwork side of things and ensuring that all the necessary organisation was in place; her thoughtful contribution to crafting a marriage ceremony that honoured the existing narratives of our relationship and our family, as well as a lovely energy and warmth during the event itself. It surpassed our expectations, and it was a great pleasure to share it all with you Bronnie.

SUZY S

We had our own ideas about our ceremony and Bronnie brought it all together exactly as we imagined, by smoothing out rough edges in a very personable and professional way. Bronnie was highly recommended to us after marrying a friend's daughter and to complete the circle, Bronnie recently married our daughter in a joyful ceremony. All of the weddings were different in their own ways and showed Bronnie's capacity to deliver the wedding of your dreams.

ANDREW W

Bronwen was amazing throughout the whole process. We loved her suggested wording to include in the ceremony and she was very helpful in helping us structure the vows. On the day, she was confident, spoke well and made us feel relaxed. Exactly the right vibe for us.

TESS O

Look no further for the most genuine and authentic celebrant in Adelaide. Bronnie was the celebrant at my mothers memorial and she made the whole process smooth and effortless. She gently guided me through the considerations that I needed to address and gracefully took charge when I needed help. The ceremony itself was everything I could have hoped for, and I attribute a large part of its success to Bronnie’s understanding of such a delicate time in a person’s life. If I ever get married, I have no doubt that as a marriage celebrant she would bring the same wisdom to another important time in our lives, that requires a perfect balance of presence and restraint.
