MAKING YOUR CEREMONY
THE HIGH POINT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY.
“These few testimonials will tell you more about my Celebrant practice and services than I could, and about my absolute commitment to making your ceremony perfect for you!”
S. & Y.
We hope this email finds you in wonderful health and many happy smiles! We also wanted to share our comments… Thank you again for making our day so special and memorable. Our very best, Y. and S.
“Where did you find her? She is an AMAZING celebrant!” one of our guests exclaimed over the cocktail hour.
One of the many challenges with destination weddings is finding the right person to help you celebrate your very special day. You almost have to have blind faith (with lots of prayers on the side!). But within minutes of meeting Karine over Skype on a winter afternoon, we knew we wanted her as our Celebrant. And we could not have been happier…or luckier.
Her detailed and thorough approach, listening to and anticipating our needs, not only gave us confidence but more importantly resulted in an extremely intimate and personal ceremony for us. Perhaps the best testimony was that it evoked both tears and laughter from all of us. Our guests are still talking about our amazing Celebrant!
Thank you Karine. You’ve helped us memorialize a very special time in our lives and we will be forever grateful.

We were so very fortunate to have Karine perform our very intimate wedding ceremony–just the two of us! We are US citizens who decided to marry in Provence, France. I searched on the internet to find someone who would be available and willing to officiate our wedding. Karine was willing to travel to our wedding location in Provence to be our celebrant. Prior to the ceremony, Karine worked with us (through e-mails) to create a very personal and intimate ceremony that focused on « us » and « our story. » Karine has a « presence » and a « way with words » that captured everything about us in such an emotional and heartfelt way that at times we cried, and at times we laughed. I can’t thank Karine enough for her efforts to personalize our ceremony. She is a very professional and talented celebrant and so easy to work with. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to have her perform our ceremony. We highly recommend Karine as « Celebrant Extraordinaire »!!
R. & M.
When our son R. and his fiancé M. asked if they could be married at our House in Provence, we had no idea how we could organise it. An internet search discovered your website and we were immediately attracted to you because you were based in Provence, French but fluent in English with a website in English and very importantly-non discriminatory.
We are delighted that we found you. Your communications with Rob and Matt were excellent and gently focused their minds on the decisions they need to make about the type of ceremony they wanted. The end result was a ceremony so moving that there was hardly a dry eye amongst the attendees. Your arrival about 2-3 hours before the ceremony was so helpful in finalising the details, making sure the main participants knew where to stand and what to say. On a personal basis, as the ‘mum’ who was the main organiser and trying to appear calm at all times despite the last minute worries of spots of rain and a sudden surge of the Mistral threatening 2 hours before the ceremony blowing the table decorations around the garden, bow-ties that would not be tied, guests lost in a neighbouring village, a mal-functioning fridge van to name just a few problems, you were calmness itself and reassured me on two occasions, that it would all be fine and the problems I was encountering were so normal that I need not worry.We all want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making R. and M.’s wedding day so magical and special. We cannot recommend you more highly. Elizabeth-mother of R. and now mother-in-law of M..

We were looking for a celebrant who would create a personal, unique and emotional ceremony for us and Karine did a lovely job. The distance between us was no problem as we were able to meet via Skype and Karine was always available via email to answer any questions. The ceremony writing process was enjoyable as Karine gets to know you, there is a lot of flexibility regarding content, music and customizing vows. Karine has good attention to detail which meant that the editing process for our ceremony was easy, barely any changes to the initial draft were required. We found our ceremony to be very emotional as it reflected our story, feelings and Karine chose poems and readings which were meaningful for us.
We required our ceremony to be in English and Karine spoke fluently and with warmth. Karine was very approachable, friendly and reliable throughout the whole process. Thank you Karine!!

Hi Karine, …, apologies for being so slow doing the testimonial for you, we were watching the video last week and were reminded of what a magnificent ceremony it wa , you truly are an artiste ! Thanks again for making our special day so magical and please feel free to use the testimonial as you like, I think everyone should have their service done by yourself and my only regret is that you didn’t do our first wedding.
Kim and I had decided to have a renewal of vows ceremony while holidaying in the South of France with friends and family, but had no idea where to start. From the beginning, Karine was wonderfully enthusiastic and inspirational in finding out about our story. She gave us some very profound questionnaires to fill out which helped us translate our feelings into words and then took our responses and crafted a beautiful service around them which was very personal to us. We ended up with a truly magical and deeply moving experience which so encapsulated what love and marriage
mean to us. Our guests were raving about it as well (many of them having been moved to tears during the ceremony, in a good way !).
Although we were renewing our vows after twelve years of marriage, it felt much more of a wedding than our first one and made us think, why have an ordinary wedding when you can have something as romantic and special as this?

To anyone looking for a fantastic celebrant in the Provence,
We highly recommend the services of Karine, a talented and very friendly, spontaneous celebrant in the beautiful Provence.
We are a couple from Melbourne, Australia and we decided to get married in the beautiful Provence in September 2013. As one of us is of Dutch origin and the other Australian/Italian, our wedding was a celebration as well as a big family reunion.
Through our wedding planner we came in contact with Karine and she has made our wedding ceremony unforgettable.
Karine has a wonderful talent to create a ceremony that is unique and meaningful yet tailor made to the couple’s wishes. When Karine send us a draft of our wedding celebration script, there was no need for any changes or adjustments, we loved it instantly. She included everything we wanted to include and added beautiful personal touches that we (and all of our guests) loved. We had such a unique ceremony and Karine is such a spontaneous, joyous person that she will make your ceremony a very memorable and special one, we highly recommend her!!!
Karine, thanks again for your wonderful ceremony, our friends and family still talk about how much they loved your ‘work’. All the best to you and hopefully we meet again one day in the Provence!
Love Kristien and Robert

I wanted to thank you very much again for an excellent ceremony!!! I’m sorry I didn’t have too much time to talk with you afterwards, as you saw I was a bit occupied. However, we are both truly appreciative of all you have done for us and for making a beautiful ceremony and great memory of our wedding day!
EVERYONE told us afterwards, how amazing it was and how they all (even the most unexpected friends) cried or became a bit emotional. They all also laughed a lot! It was everything we wanted and hoped for! It was perfect!
Thank you very much again Karine. It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to maybe see you again?! Take care!
