Wedding Ceremony – Thank You Notes

Hi Stephen,

I hope you are well?

We can’t thank you enough for the beautiful, beautiful ceremony that you most thoughtfully performed for us! Not only do we continue to talk about it, but our guests were also particularly touched by it. The words and philosophy were so beautiful and touching! We couldn’t believe how perfectly it matched us and our lives … it was as if we were speaking our hearts during the ceremony. Everyone thought it was the most beautiful, intimate and loving ceremony they’d ever witnessed! We agree wholeheartedly.

Thank you so, so much. Deon & Gregg


Dear Stephen,

Simon and I would like to take this opportunity to truly thank you for your wonderful delivery of our wedding ceremony:

We are so glad we found Stephen to perform the service at our wedding. He understood our vision of the special day and found ways to accommodate those needs at a very point. From the first moment we began speaking to Stephen, he was willing to take the time to explain everything to us, in detail. He met with us on numerous occasions and was prompt with feedback and communication.  He came forward with wonderful, unique ideas that customized our wedding with the distinct and extraordinary ambiance we wanted. We appreciate his kind efforts and hard work in personalizing a perfect and beautiful ceremony. We had many compliments from our guests after the ceremony. They were quite moved with his delivery of our vows and composure through out. Stephen was calm, relaxed and had such a welcoming approach (even though things got a little muddled when we could not use a microphone). Family raved about the moving and memorable ceremony. Without hesitation, we strongly recommend his splendid and creative gift. In today’s hustle and hectic lives, it is getting harder and harder to find someone who is willing to take the time to help with such a kind, loving, and accepting demeanor. Stephen is someone we will always remember as we reflect on our special day. Because of him, it was truly the best day ever imaginable.

Hi Stephen,

Yes we are back, we had such a great honeymoon and the last few days have been moving into Mladen’s flat, and making it homeJ

The reception was perfect, almost as perfect as the ceremony.

Once again thank you so much for the amazing ceremony that you did for Mladen and I. I can’t tell you how many of our friends and family came up to us afterwards to tell us how special and unique it was. We enjoyed the relationship experience so much too, it was so much fun learning even more about each other before our wedding, so thank you so much for taking us through it. You really made us feel comfortable to share and to be open with each other.

I hope that we will see you again in the future, good luck with all your future plans.

Kind Regards,

Antoinette and Mladen


 Dear Stephen

 Rob and I would like to thank you for making our marriage ceremony unforgetable and special.  Even though we eloped, you took the time to meet with us to find out our specific requests for the simple ceremony. When you delivered your message and quoted two of our favorite pieces we were moved & stunned.

Thank you for making us laugh during the serious moments, for remaining composed when we felt emotional and for delivering a service that we will recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful ceremony tailor-made to suit you as an individual. 

It was a pleasure to meet you and we are thrilled to now also call you our friend.

Rob & Stephanie


 Dear Stephen

 We were so happy with the service. It was so lovely, so emotional and more than we ever could have dreamed. The videographer said he’s been to hundreds of weddings but he’d never seen a sweeter, more fitting ceremony.

So thank you for making the possible for us.

 Hi Stephen,

We had such an incredible day and night!! Karl and I were so happy with the service and we had so many compliments from our guests, even the old school leb Catholics ;).

We are thoroughly enjoying our honeymoon and looking forward to getting the pics back to relive our amazing day – here’s a pic of us for now!

Thanks again for giving us a truly memorable service and for all the help along the way.

Lots of love

Karl and Mich 


 Dear Steve,

First of all, THANK you for making our wedding one, we will never forget!  Your professionalism throughout all our meetings and the actual event was fantastic!

Both Deon and I got so many compliments in which way which you handled the service, and especially the fact that you made us both feel at ease during the ceremony.

Your quirkiness, was much appreciated! I also want to say, that we both enjoy your company, and that a true friendship will develop from this, that I am sure of!

We both agree that we can recommend you to anyone who needs these services! You will be first on our list of preferred “suppliers”, that is a promise.

Once again THANK YOU!!!

Hope to see you soon!

Steve…..WOW, just read through the ceremony again!!!!  My letter to you this morning does not justify what it means to me NOW , the memories all came flooding back , as it has been very blurry! If I could do it again and be more “present” with no stress and excitement I would do it! You are booked 10 years from now for the renewal! If you can copy and paste this onto what I wrote this morning, please do! Brother love and hugs, and thank you once again!  Andre x

Dear Stephen

We just wanted to write to you and thank you for the special part you played in our wedding day.

From the moment we met you, so many months ago, at the Mugg and Bean, we knew we’d found the man who would be perfect to conduct our wedding ceremony and you didnt let us down.

Your humor, your serenity and your snazzy green tie all culminated in a funny and enjoyable ceremony, adored by all.

We cant thank you enough.

And when we’re old and gray, our marriage surpassing in years the amount of time we’d lived before meeting, we will still remember standing beside you, saying our, “I do’s”.

Lots of love

Casey  & Cedric Kotzenmacher


Dearest Stevie

Words cannot express how much it meant to Tobes and I to have had you marry us – what a day!

You ensured that everything we wanted to say was said and you made our service completely unique and based on both of our personalities.

Your advice was also highly appreciated and we loved the personal touches that you made possible for us.

Thank you for all your time and energy that you put into our big day. Your gentle nature and calm mannerism made us both feel so relaxed and made our day perfect. You were the best.

Carly and Toby Williams


Dear Stephen.

 Almost 9 years ago you married Shaun and I in the most heart-felt …and touching ceremony.

The realness, positive emotion and support that you offered us went beyond anything that we could have expected.

When chatting about weddings with friends, many still comment on the ceremony and what a profound impact your messages had on all who were there.

You added to the beauty of the day.


Nicole and Shaun



You did your first wedding when you married us 17 years ago.

It was magical! Great to see you making magic for other couples too!

Karen and Brian


Hi Stephen

This is a short note to say a huge THANK YOU for such a special day. You made it exactly the way we wanted it – relaxed, intimate and above all special.

So many of our guests commented on how special and unique it was and how amazing it was that you brought the boys into the ceremony. The fact that Connor cried is an indication how special he felt and how happy he was.

Your words of wisdom on the secrets to marriage were awesome and it will be something we will always remember.

Keep doing what you doing and you will continue to make more days special for so many people.

Once again a huge thank you and looking forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards

Michelle & David


Dear Stephen,

 Thank you for making our vision a reality on our wedding day.  

 We appreciate all the time you made available to us prior to our wedding day and for all your guidance and support.

 We heard wonderful comments about the ceremony and there is not one thing we would change.

We loved the way you integrated the readings of Kahlil Gibran and Oriah Mountain dreamer, into our service – as these readings have always been significant to us.

 We are grateful for your contribution in making our day meaningful and special.

 We would recommend you to anyone


Warren and Natascha


 Hi Stephen!

How are you?

We want to thank you for everything. From the first email and meeting until the ceremony.
We really felt you understood us and helped make our day special.
You are incredibly helpful, and very friendly. We couldn’t have hoped for more.
Thank you so very much 🙂 My family and many guests commented on the lovely ceremony you presented.

Yesterday went just as we had hoped and worked for. It was a very special day for us.

It is always so easy to send clients your way knowing that you handle them in a friendly and professional manner.
