Liz and David October 2019
Bill Stubbs was our wedding celebrant at Sandringham Yacht Club on the 6th October 2019.
Right from the first time we engaged Bill to be our Celebrant, he has been most professional in every aspect of the wedding procedure.
From the very start Bill outlined our responsibilities and the procedure that is required in any wedding.
He tailored our wedding to just the way we wanted it.
If there were any questions by us, Bill came back with an immediate response.
On the day of the actual wedding, Bill with his usual sense of humour, made everyone including the future bride and groom feel at ease.
His preparation and ideas were faultless.
The actual speech he made before our vows, had the humour that made it so special and made everyone have a good laugh.
Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to, and Bill certainly can be attributed to making this happen.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Bill as a wedding celebrant.
Annabel and Angelique March 2019
We can’t speak highly enough of Bill. We are thankful for his involvement in our planning process, all the way through to his beautiful delivery of our ceremony on the day.
Bill was our own personal wedding mentor, helping to guide and consult on the logistics and running order. His help extended past the ceremony, to assist in shaping all elements that resulted in an incredibly unforgettable day.
Thank you, Bill. Working with you was like a warm hug.
Alex and James December 2018
Planning a wedding can be stressful; there are so many choices that need to be made. As if choosing the right partner isn’t hard enough, once engaged there are so many other decisions that follow in quick succession; the date, the venue, the flowers, the dress. Somewhere along the way a celebrant must be selected, an important role that can make or break a ceremony. James and I were so happy when Bill was available to marry the two of us in December, 2018.
At first impression it was clear that Bill has the charisma and appeal of an excellent public speaker, a great booming voice, a cheeky smile and quite the snappy dresser. What we found most engaging was Bill’s kindness and consideration when it came to the details in the ceremony that would be important to us. We had a number of children that we wanted to include in the day, which could have been difficult, but Bill suggested ways in which they could be introduced and celebrated in comfortable and gentle manner.
While James and I understood the significance of the important moments in the ceremony, we wanted our family and friends to enjoy a more relaxed afternoon in the garden. The sun was shining, the children were playing and Bill took it all in his stride, a true testament to Bill’s ability to compliment the environment, the couple and engage with any audience. Bill skillfully balanced the varying moods of the day and ensured a natural flow of the ceremony.
To say we were pleased with Bill’s efforts would be an understatement. Bill is an exceptional celebrant, making us comfortable in the important moments, relaxed for the most part and delighted our audience with his wonderful sense of humour and strength of character. We will forever remember Bill’s joyful presence when we think of our wedding day and look forward to using Bill’s services again when we choose to celebrate other momentous occasions in our lives. Thank you Bill.
Sara and Jake March 2019
Bill was sensational and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Diligent and attentive in the lead up to the wedding; and just a good and relatable bloke to talk to.
We couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony, everything ran smoothly and to plan!
Zowie and Mick April 2018
From the first meeting we had with Bill we knew he was the right person to share in our wedding day.
He was warm, charismatic and very well spoken, these are just some of the qualities that were easy to see.
Bill was great to deal with and made the legal process effortless.
He shaped the ceremony to suit us and guided us along the way.
We would highly recommend his professional services.
Sarah and Paul March 2018
Bill performed our wedding ceremony in March 2018. He was so easy to work with – he has a lovely, warm demeanour and a great sense of humour. This made the process of developing our ceremony a really enjoyable process. Bill provided guidance when we asked for suggestions, and assured us we could contact him as much as we needed, which was really reassuring. On the day, Bill did a fantastic job of putting us both at ease, engaging our guests, and making the ceremony really special. We would highly recommend Bill if you’re a couple who want a thoughtful celebrant who provides the perfect balance between humour and reverence.
Rebecca and Matthew March 2018
Matthew and I would like to thank Bill and Gillian (audio) for their services and help they provided.
From first meeting to the service Bill was very professional and helpful in making our day special.
It could not have been a more memorable day and we highly recommend Bill’s services.
Pauline and Rob February 2018
Rob and I wish to congratulate you on a great job in directing us through the process of organising our wedding ceremony.
Your help and advice were invaluable!
You listened to our wishes and delivered the service with great style and in a very relaxed manner – it was perfect!
Many of our friends have commented – “the celebrant was excellent” and we agree.
It was also a pleasure to meet your wife, Gillian. Her work with the audio was timed perfectly.
We have no hesitation in recommending your services.
Jess and Matt January 2018
From the first time we met Bill he made us feel relaxed and at ease. Bill’s professionalism accompanied with his kind, supportive nature made planning the ceremony a breeze. We had planned a big wedding ceremony but at the last minute changed our plans to have a private surprise ceremony in our backyard. We hadn’t decided on the format or written our vows and within 6 days Bill helped us plan the perfect ceremony and helped us pull off the big surprise. Bill really went above and beyond to make our day so special and personal. Bill clearly has a passion for his job, which shines through in everything he does. Matt and myself would recommend Bill a thousand times over and cannot thank him enough for all he did for us.
It was such a pleasure to have you conduct our ceremony.
Kim and Jerome December 2017
When it came to planning a wedding, we were complete beginners – especially when it came to the legal requirements and ceremony.
From the moment we contacted Bill, he was professional, friendly and organised. All things that made the experience much less intimidating.
On the day, Bill held his down to earth, professional manner which lead to a comfortable ceremony including many laughs.
Thank you Bill. Our day would not have run as smooth if we didn’t have you!
Cara and Simon October 2017
So glad we called Bill after having him so highly recommended! He was our 1st call when we started looking for a Celebrant and after meeting in person, we knew he was the one!
From start to finish, everything was organised, and stress free. We wanted a small, intimate light hearted ceremony and Bill delivered!
Thank you so much for making our day perfect Bill!
Cherelle and Mick – August 2017
Our wedding day was perfect and amazing and your involvement in the most important part of it was really special.
Your help and support to make the ceremony go so smoothly and make us feel at ease and also have some laughs along the way was just wonderful and we couldn’t have chosen anyone else more perfect to be a part of our day.
Also – many thanks to your ‘roadie’/’sound engineer’ Gill!
Karen and Andy – April 2017
Thank you very much for your HUGE part in making our wedding such a fun and memorable occasion.
We knew right from the moment we engaged your services that we were in good hands.
So many of our friends and family have commented to us just how beautiful the ceremony was – several saying it was the nicest ceremony they have ever been to!
You set the mood for the whole evening expertly.
We will always remember your services fondly.
Hayley and Michael April 2017
Given all the excitement had died down and we have settled back into our normal routine, I just wanted to take the opportunity to email you and thank you for being our celebrant on our wedding day. Our day went perfectly right from the beginning and the ceremony was a huge part of that. We are both so glad that we chose you to perform our ceremony and every meeting we had with you was so great.
We received so much great feedback from our guests about you and how well you spoke and put together our ceremony. I re-watched some footage yesterday (as it is a lot to take in at the time) and the ceremony we had was exactly like we both wanted. Relaxed and just purely about our relationship and who we are as a couple.
It was an absolute pleasure meeting with you and thank you again.
We will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a celebrant for their wedding.
Hayley and Michael April 2017
I have been meaning to message you to say thank you again for the beautiful wedding ceremony you conducted for Hayley and Michael.
The extra care and attention you gave was very much appreciated. I have been to a lot of weddings and they are rarely as sincere as yours.
James and Rebecca, February 2017
James and I just wanted to thank you for uniting us in marriage on the 25th February 2017.
We had the most wonderful wedding day and you definitely contributed to making it so. You made us both felt at ease as soon as we met you and knew you would do such a great job and you didn’t disappoint.
Our wedding was handled in a very professional manner and we would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a celebrant who’s charming, witty, well-spoken and a little bit cheeky.
Thanks again Bill,
Jess and Ben – February 2017
We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to make our ceremony so wonderful.
Your experience, guidance and direction when needed, your sense of humour and calm presence made our ceremony everything we could have wanted.
The paperwork and legalities were so efficient and worry free.
We couldn’t have been happier.
Sarah and Han, February 2017
Han and I want to thank you for your work on Saturday. Everything was wonderful and you did an amazing job.
We had so many people come up throughout the day and say how impressed they were by your work and you really helped make it a very ‘us’ day.
Patty and Nick, January 2017
We would like to thank you again for celebrating our Wedding and making our special day unforgettable.
You were outstanding and certainly made a great impression for our friends. They were blown away by your performance.
You are very generous and thoughtful.
Thank you so much for your contribution to our wedding. Your guidance and support were instrumental in delivering to us the perfect ceremony. We will always be pleased to recommend your services to any of our friends and family.
Lee-Anne and Liam, January 2017
We just wanted to send you a message to say thank you so much for an amazing service last Friday.
We were both so nervous but the ceremony was exactly what we were looking for!
Everyone has commented and said it was the best service they have been to and we can’t thank you enough for your support and for helping us with it all.
Sophie & Charles December 2016
It was so special being married by a dear family friend. Before we knew you were a Celebrant we were both at a loss as to who to ask to officiate our big day as we wanted it to be personal, relaxed and joyful.
You can’t imagine how excited and relived we were when Dad mentioned you were a celebrant, and more importantly, interested in officiating our special day.
You did such a fantastic job and we felt in safe hands the entire time. Even our seasoned photographer and friend Clint, asked for your details so he could recommend you to a friend of his.
I can only imagine how many weddings he has been too so we were thrilled to provide your name.
Kaity and Chris – December 2016
We can’t thank you enough for the fantastic job you did of being our Marriage Celebrant.
Your support in the lead up to the big day was invaluable and you did an amazing job of marrying us.
The thing that we loved most (and many of our friends have commented on) was how caring, genuine and engaging you were throughout the ceremony.
You made it feel like a good friend was marrying us which was exactly what we wanted from the outset.
Thanks again and all the best,
Kaity and Chris, December 2016
You are an amazing Wedding Celebrant…you did such a wonderful job of officiating at Kaity Munro’s wedding It was meant to be when I met you at Graham’s Birthday. Everyone was so impressed at how you made us all feel so comfortable and welcome.
Thank you again for helping to make my daughter’s wedding a wonderful and memorable one. Look forward to seeing you again…
With fond regards,
Tara and Michael November 2016
We can’t thank you enough for the contribution you made to our wedding day. You made the whole experience of preparing our service so easy and enjoyable.
You were so understanding of how busy we were leading up to the event and worked around us with no pressure (exactly what is needed at what can be a stressful time!)
We wanted a simple and genuine ceremony, and that’s exactly what you delivered – and still managed to make it personalised to Michael and I. Friends and family all commented on what a beautiful wedding we had and you were a significant part to that.
We would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant.
Thank you Bill.
Deb and Jamie, November 2016
Thank you Bill for everything you did to make it a perfect day for our Wedding Ceremony. You were patient; understanding of our needs and nothing was a bother to you at all. Your sense of humour is one of your wonderful traits which made everyone really enjoy our special day.
Thank you again
Jessie and Michael, November 2016
Bill was absolutely fabulous, so accommodating and really personalised our wedding. He was funny and kindhearted.
Toyah and Bradley, October 2016
Before our Ceremony
Bill visited us a couple of times at our home leading up to the big day to discuss his service and plan the ceremony. Bill was really informative, professional and easy to talk to. He really put us at ease during what can be a stressful period.
Day of Our Wedding
Bill did an awesome job as celebrant on the day. His style made everyone (including a nervous groom) feel at ease. Our ceremony was light, personal and full of love, and many of the guests noticed this and commended it. Bill did a great job in his delivery and ability to portray who we are on our day. His ‘sound engineer’ (aka Bill’s wife Gill), did a fantastic job ensuring the sound was very clear and volume perfect. We highly recommend Bill and thank him for a truly beautiful ceremony that will remain the highlight of our day for all the years to come.
Penny & Greg
We were wrapped with our decision to have Bill Stubbs as our wedding celebrant. My husband and I are fairly easy going people so the brief was to help create a relaxed and fun ceremony that was a reflection of us and Bill Stubbs did just that.
Bill is a very friendly and organised guy and was so easy to deal with in the lead up to the big day. Whilst we felt out of control trying to organise a million things, Bill had an ability to put us at ease that the ceremony would be taken care of. Bill was happy to be as involved as we wanted him to be in writing the ceremony and always made us feel that we were in control – aside from the legalities we could largely do as we pleased. He was able to provide us with suggestions and guidance in relation to those areas we wanted to manage (readings, music and vows) and was happy to run with the rest.
You can tell that Bill is naturally very charismatic and on the day, Bill was able to strike the perfect balance between giving the commitment we were entering into due attention but allowing for plenty of laughter. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves from the moment it began and our personalities really came through in the ceremony Bill put together. Also, when unplanned things took place like my husband going to kiss me well before he was meant to, Bill didn’t miss a beat and made them into very humorous memories.
We received lots of positive feedback about Bill Stubbs and would recommend him to other couples without hesitation.
