My partner Hiroshi and I chose Stephen to officiate at our commitment ceremony as we wanted a gay celebrant and Stephen had such good reviews from other ceremonies he had conducted.
Stephen made the process of planning our ceremony both enjoyable and very easy. He met with us a couple of times before the ceremony to help us plan and to enable him to get to know us as a couple. Stephen also provided us with a ceremony planning guide with lots of useful suggestions and examples of vows etc which made the process of writing our own ceremony and vows so easy. Stephen communicated and met with us in the months leading up to the ceremony to make sure everything was just as we wanted it and as a result our wedding was one of the most memorable days of our lives.
Stephen has a warm, positive and happy demeanour which was very much part of what made our day so enjoyable. Several of our friends commented on what a wonderful ceremony it was – one of our friends in fact said it was the most moving wedding he had been to. Another couple said they wished they could’ve had Stephen officiate at their wedding. We would highly recommend Stephen to anyone planning on tying the knot and we will certainly have Stephen officiate for us when gay marriage is legally recognised in Australia – hopefully soon!
