When we began to plan our wedding, we spoke with John about how important it was for us to have a very simple ceremony that focused on us embarking on a journey together and how blessed we feel to be sharing our lives with each other. The words John shared with us during this time are ones that we come back to over and over again throughout our marriage.

On the day of the wedding John was calm and held us in the present while he navigated us through our unique wedding. The ceremony was held as we wanted in, in a family home, with parents, siblings and a handful of friends present. A parent living in London participated in the ceremony via Skype, and John was able to incorporate them into the space in a comfortable manner. Before we exchanged our vows we practiced a few minutes of silence for us to each have time to reflect and think about what our bond represented.

John went above and beyond our expectations and we are thankful that he has opened up new paths for us to travel together along.

John Faisandier married Amanda and I on 4th March 2011.  Both Amanda and I were very busy leading up to our wedding juggling three kids and full time jobs!  We met with John for lunch one day to discuss proceedings, it was very relaxed and from that meeting John got a feel for how we envisioned our day.  A few weeks later we met again and John ran through some options with us.  John had great ideas and suggestions and wasn’t offended if we made changes or missed things out.

Leading up to the day John was very supportive and had a nice way of reminding us about the commitment we were about to make to one another and how wonderful it was!  John understood why being married was important to us and to our children and did an amazing job of including our children in the ceremony.

On the day John was fantastic, he helped me keep my nerves at bay and had some great tricks up his sleeve to warm up our guests and get them all talking and laughing before the beautiful bride arrived.  The ceremony was everything we wanted it to be and more, John had an amazing way of making everyone in the room feel involved.

We had great feedback from our guests and are very grateful for John’s involvement on our special day.

We were so glad that John was our celebrant on our big day.  He made us feel so relaxed and everything flowed so smoothly, starting with help planning the ceremony, the rehearsal the day before, the ceremony itself, and finally the wedding reception when John performed our MC duties.  John made our day full of very special memories which we will always be grateful for.

Thank you John.
