Reviews of Laura Craddock - Civil Celebrant

  • Laura, Eric and I wanted to say the biggest thank you for helping to create the most beautiful and personalised wedding ceremony for our special day. Our guests commented that it was a true reflection of us and really unique. We appreciated your advice, patience, reassurance and of course your amazing wedding ceremony guide. It was very important to us that we could personalise each section and you really helped to make this possible. You were so organised on the day (despite a last minute venue change) and made sure that everything ran smoothly. We really cannot thank you enough, we are so grateful that we found you highly recommended!
  • Celebrant Laura Craddock married us in Berrima. The ceremony for us was the most beautiful and sacred part of the day. We felt at ease and comfortable with Laura guiding us through the ceremony and confident that it would all run smoothly (which it did!). Laura was calm and capable which was a great asset on the day. Laura was well presented and dressed perfectly for the occasion. It was also a great relief that Laura had the foresight to bring a spare marriage certificate for us to sign, as in our new marital excitement the bride signed the wrong place.
    It was a great help to receive Laura's guidance in the lead up to the wedding with personalising our ceremony, Laura had suggestions and ideas which had not even occurred to us, this advice was invaluable and helped shape our wedding day. We 100% recommend Laura as your wedding celebrant, she was amazing. Thank you for marrying us Laura! - Celeste & Joe.
  • We found Laura online and her website impressed us from the get go. We knew that when we booked her that we were dealing with a professional and compassionate person. Laura's communication and material was of high standard and we won't hesitate in referring her to our friends and family. We are now happily married thanks to you! Anna x
  • We are very grateful to Laura for the beautiful and personalised naming and blessing ceremony for our two children. The ceremony was relaxed, humorous and heart felt- it left many people with a tear in their eye. Laura worked with us via phone and email as we did not live locally and was helpful throughout the process. We highly recommend Laura as a celebrant for your special occasion.
  • Laura made our wedding so special. We got so many compliments about what a personal ceremony it was. The process of personalising the ceremony was a wonderful way to reflect on the whole reason we were getting married in the first place and was one of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of preparing for our wedding. The Ceremony Pack that Laura provides to help you choose all the elements of your ceremony is outstanding. 80 pages packed with ideas for every little detail, including readings and blessings.
    The service is very personal and thoughtful and Laura was always available by email to answer any questions. She took care of everything so that we didn't have to worry about any of the legalities.
    I absolutely wouldn't hesitate to recommend Laura for any kind of ceremony - she is amazing!
  • Laura was our celebrant back in May and we could not have been happier to have her officiate our Wedding! Thank you Laura for helping us create a ceremony that was intimate, special and absolutely suited our personalities and tastes.
    Many of our guests asked us if Laura was a friend of ours - this is a testament to the natural, comfortable style of speaking that Laura has, and the personal nature of the ceremony. We could not recommend Laura enough to any couple looking for a unique, custom-created ceremony who has lots of experience and a friendly nature - it is very clear that Laura cares about her clients and really listens to their wants and needs. Will be recommending her to everyone!
  • Laura is a great marriage celebrant. She has a great personality and really worked well with us and for what we wanted. She added her own personal touches to our ceremony which made it great. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone that asked. Thank you Laura.
  • Laura was great. She made our ceremony a very special event for us and our guests. We had so many compliments afterwards about how great the ceremony was and that the words were really us. This was thanks to Laura. She helped us along the way to tailor the ceremony to run exactly how we wanted and to say what we wanted to say. We didn't have a very traditional view on the marriage ceremony and Laura was very accommodating, including all the things that we wanted to be said. She made us both feel very comfortable in preparing for the big day and made everything run very smoothly on the day itself. We couldn't recommend her higher.
  • The wedding ceremony Laura conducted for us was everything that we had hoped for. A comment we have received from one of our guests probably sums it up the best - it felt like the audience was privy to a candid and loving moment between the two of us. We are fully conscious that this is the result of the thoughtful preparation Laura put into the ceremony and the professional way in which she conducted proceedings.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Laura to others. Thank you Laura!
  • Laura is incredibly down to earth, her approach focuses on the most important details about a wedding ceremony, and we were so happy to have chosen her as our celebrant. Laura helped us create a beautiful ceremony that was a perfect representation of us as a couple, one that we enjoyed so much, it was the single greatest moment of our lives together so far. We highly recommend Laura!
  • Laura married us not even a month ago and we could not recommend her highly enough! She made our small wedding very special. She was super proffesional, so well prepared and very natural that we felt like we have known her for years. She delivered a personalised, meaning-full and funny ceremony that all of our guests commented on. We were so lucky to have Laura as our celebrant.
  • We had Laura officiate our wedding ceremony in mid-March 2014, on Sydney Harbour. The entire ceremony went spectacularly smoothly, and I can safely say this was virtually all down to Laura, and the amazing service she provides. From our first meeting with Laura, we knew she was the celebrant for us - warm, engaging and willing to shape everything around what suited our relationship and personalities. We felt so at ease with Laura, and she created a calm and jovial atmosphere for our ceremony. So many of our guests commenting on how heartfelt and unique our ceremony was, and Laura was pivotal in calming me (the bride) down when I arrived at the top of the aisle a complete emotional wreck!
    Laura was also incredibly helpful with explaining the legal side of things, and organising these requirements. Laura is the complete package, I cannot recommend her highly enough!
    Thank you so very much Laura :)

  • We recently had Laura conduct our wedding ceremony and we couldn't have been happier with it. The whole day was fantastic and Laura made it really special and memorable for both of us by conducting such a personalised ceremony. We had so many of our guests comment during the reception on what a lovely and unique ceremony it was, and how they all loved hearing details about the two of us and our relationship.Working with Laura was easy and professional, she was able to assist with so many details some of which we would never have even thought of!
  • Laura was the perfect choice for our sons' Naming Ceremony. She is professional and was extremely accommodating with respect to how we imagined the ceremony would be carried out. This was very important to us and she did a perfect job. After the ceremony I had a number of guests come and say how wonderful she was and asked how I found her. I'm glad I found her website and I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Laura for making our sons' special day even more wonderful.
  • Laura is a fantastic celebrant, she made our small wedding a very special day. It was still simple to organise (which was key to us as we are having our big wedding celebration in Europe later this year) and our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We are so happy we didn't get married in the registry office, thanks Laura for your expertise and warmth - you made the day a breeze and just wonderful!
  • Laura is an amazing marriage celebrant. She made sure that our ceremony a personal and special experience that both of us will never forget. Laura went to great lengths to make sure that our day was special and it was a time that we will never forget! Thank you Laura, you are the best at what you do.
  • Laura maintained a personal, friendly and highly organised manner throughout the wedding planning, through flexible skype video calls to London and a preparation meeting with us in Sydney. She kept us calm at all times and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect and intimate ceremony on a beautiful beach with a few friends. We feel very fortunate that she was part of our wedding and a wonderful holiday! Laura comes highly recommended.
  • Lianne and I were extremely impressed and satisfied with Laura as our wedding celebrant. She made the whole process easy, made sure that we were clear in what we wanted in our ceremony and made sure that she delivered a personal, meaningful and never-to-be forgotten ceremony on the night of our surprise wedding. We will always remember the night as will our guests. We both have no reservations about recommending her to anyone else contemplating a civil wedding.
  • Laura wrote us a beautiful, highly customised and deeply personal ceremony that blended everything about us a couple together with traditional vows. Laura is personable, friendly and beatifully presented. We felt so lucky to have found someone who was professional and organised yet put us both at ease immediately. Nothing was too much trouble, incorporating loved ones both living and deceased. She did such an amazing job that many of our guests thought she was a personal friend.
  • Immanuel and I were truly blessed to have Laura as our wedding celebrant. From our first meeting with her, we were both so comfortable and knew that we had made the right decision in choosing Laura to be our celebrant.
    Trying to organise a wedding from another country is difficult and having no idea where to start, especially with getting married in Sydney, was so much easier with Laura She was able to sort out the necessary aspects of our marriage for us and guide us with ideas and suggestions to really add that personal touch to our ceremony and in the end it turned out so beautifully, so much so that we (including our invited guests) want to go back to the wedding day :). We will definitely be recommending Laura to friends who may consider getting married in Sydney.

    Thank you so much Laura for everything, our wedding ceremony was so beautiful and definitely memorable.
