Some Kind Words

“Afaf was an absolutely integral part of our special day. She was totally perfect as our celebrant, and we couldn’t imagine anyone else for the job. Afaf guided us in choosing the type of ceremony we wanted, giving us great advice along the way. She knew what questions to ask, and ensured that the ceremony was tailored to our personalities and our wedding day. On the day itself, Afaf was a sea of calm in all the excitement, and put us totally at ease. We wholeheartedly recommend Afaf as a celebrant!”
“Afaf was a calming influence when the nerves started to take over. I could not imagine having anyone but Afaf share our special day. She was sensitive, fun, and caring whilst professionally delivering the serious component of the ceremony. I think I saw a tear in her eye at times as she told our story! Afaf is organised and left nothing to chance. She double checked all the documents to ensure they were correct on the day. Afaf’s style of communication is always calm yet professional. She makes sure you understand what is happening every step along the way, and answers any questions with confidence and knowledge. When delivering my vows I became a little teary, Afaf helped me work thru my tears, sensitively reassuring me, so I could continue with the words spoken from my heart. Afaf was considerate even when choosing her wardrobe for the day, so our dresses would not clash in the photos. 😊 Afaf is the expert in backyard weddings. No stress, all organised and we worked together like a dream. No regrets from us in the choice of our home or choice of celebrant. 💖”
“5 stars for this superstar. Afaf perfected our perfect day. She had the amazing ability to blend into our Special Occasion. Felt like another family member was with us xxx”
“Afaf, it’s hard to put into words how perfect a choice of celebrant you were for us! But I’ll try, the moment we met I knew you were down to earth & caring, you paid attention to detail, put effort into the “little things” like the naming day certificate (personalised to suit our theme for the day). Had everything prepared, we had so many people comment how beautifully you spoke! We cannot thank you enough, the ceremony was exactly as we had hoped for. plus bonus mention to your hubby Brett who took some lovely photos on the day! Thank you both!”

Meet Your Celebrant

I absoulutely LOVE what I do and the incredible people I get to work with. So as your celebrant, I will go above and beyond to make sure that you have your best day EVER!

But, why did I become a Marriage Celebrant?

Well, my best friend’s son (whom I’ve known since his birth and who’s always called me “Aunty Afaf”) asked me if I would be their celebrant. I was beyond flattered! So I dived into doing the course and I have never looked back – this is not a job, it’s an ABSOLUTE JOY!
