I just wanted to say ‘Thank You’ again for everything you did for my twin daughter’s Naming Ceremony.  I believe that without you conducting the Ceremony the day would never have been as special or perfect.  You have provided not only Daniel and myself, but our whole family with memories of a beautiful and perfect ceremony that will last a lifetime.

I received the disc with the photo’s thank you very much I wish you all the best and thank you for allowing me to add my personal (and strange) ideas to the Ceremony. Your personal touch and understanding of my needs, in fact everything you did was perfect including the Certificates which are now framed and hanging in my lounge room.  I have enclosed a couple of photos of you with Kailee and Chloe. I have more photos of the fairy garden where the Butterfly Tree was planted, candles etc, take care, you are truly a wonderful and talented woman.

Dear Claire,

Thank you for your all round help planning our Wedding this past February, it was lovely to see someone who was genuinely as happy about the Wedding as we were.

Our comment is that Ellen Claire Coorie is the best, a lovely lady and no need for improvement.  Thank you Claire for making our Wedding Day very precious in every way.

Ruth and Ken .. February 2008

Dear Claire,

A huge Thank you  for helping me organize our Wedding Ceremony. We felt comfortable with you at all times, you provided us with a wealth of information and all necessary documents, your Folder of Choices was fantastic!

I changed the details of our Ceremony many times and you were very accommodating, such a great help. You did a wonderful job, we were so pleased to have the use of your music player, and so pleased at how well the day went.

Thanks again, Rebecca & Luke ... 29th February 2008

Claire you couldn’t have done better! You made us feel like we had known you for years which made us very comfortable. You organized our Naming Ceremony for Shelby with ease and gave us ideas which were great.

We would not hesitate to have her do another ceremony for us. Thank you.  Jason & Kelly ... 11.5.08

Claire you were so helpful with things we were not sure of when planning our Wedding. We were very happy with every thing concerning our Wedding Ceremony, there were no problems at all. After the service you sent us a great disc with photos and lovely candle on the day.

Ray and Iris    July 2008.

Claire, you we were very happy with our Wedding Day, you explained everything along the way,

you were so reassuring at all times. We found you to be an excellent Celebrant leading up to and during the Wedding, you would do a fine job of anyone’s ceremony.

Carolyn & Paul Archer  July 2008

We found Claire to be extremely friendly, professional and attentive, you were so well organized, clearly explaining all aspects of the Ceremony format, due to the Wedding choices booklet/ folder the stress was taken out of the Ceremony planning. You were always available for phone contact, emails and meetings,  lovely tables provided on the day and a Professional Sound System.

You were wonderful and we would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Miranda and Les   23.8.08

Naming Day 21st September 2008

Claire is a lovely, friendly and very helpful Celebrant,  she made me feel at ease about the ceremony and that everything would go smoothly. She even made my husband feel at ease during the Wedding ceremony and put a smile on both our faces.  He was very nervous. You did a great job and dealt with unexpected rain and thunder right on time for the Ceremony.

Sarah and Scott   October 2008

Claire, the job that you did for Hannah’s Naming Day Ceremony was perfect. Thank you very much, Leigh & I had a wonderful day. Thank you also for the CD of the photos of the day.

Natalie & Leigh  November, 2008

Thank you again Claire for doing our Wedding it was a beautiful day,

I loved every minute of it.  You helped out where ever needed and went that

extra distance to make sure our day was special and one to remember.

Thank you for letting us borrow the easel for the signature photo frame, it came in  

handy that is for sure. Thank you also for sending us the photos they turned out

great.  All the best and thank you for everything.

Trevor & Zena  February 2009

Dear Claire,

Thank you very much for everything, every detail was perfect. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into everything, everyone enjoyed the

beautiful service for Tia’s Naming Day.  We never once felt uncomfortable,

it was like talking to a friend.  We received everything we wanted and

helpful suggestions to make the day perfect.

See you at the Wedding!

Melissa and Tim  February 2007

Hi Claire,
Well! Just about ready for our second dinner as newlyweds! We are both so delighted with how the day went. I didn't get to catch up with you before you left - think the photos were being taken inside.

We are both so thankful and could never fully let you know just how special you made our day. Your gift of the candle, shells for the Sand Ceremony, bound vows and your help and guidance meant so much.

You made it all so easy and we will forever remember our day and your part in its success.

Take care, speak soon and all our love,
Sean & Sarah xx      Wedding 17
