Reviews of Laura Craddock - Civil Celebrant

  • 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.
  • Laura served as celebrant at our vow renewal ceremony in May. She did a great job of tailoring the ceremony to my husband and I, which was important to us, and the end result was a personalised ceremony that many of our guests commented on. She was wonderful to work with, and we never once felt and pressure to include content that wasn't 'us'. I should also point out that at the beginning of this process we really had no idea what we wanted, so she was able to offer us plenty of suggestions and advice to bring the ceremony together and include our immediate family members. So thank you Laura for such a wonderful and memorable ceremony!
  • We were looking for someone young and fresh with a sense of humour to fit with our intimate and relaxed outdoor ceremony. We live in London so it was stressful at times planning a wedding in Sydney. Laura has an incredibly calming way about her and I can honestly say the day wouldn't have felt so special without such a lovely personal ceremony. Thanks from Mel and Martin!
  • Thank you so much Laura for making our special day so simply beautiful. Everything ran smoothly and all your help leading up to the day to applying for our marriage certificate made our wedding planning so easy. Thank you very much :)
  • Laura made our day so special. She was extreemly professional, and very well prepared. Laura spent a lot of time with us and my daughter so make sure everything was perfect. Laura also want that extra mile by designing a wedding ceremony that really integrated my daughter into the day. I would reccomend Laura to anyone who is getting married.
  • Thank you Laura so much for being a part of our special day, It was so nice to have you there as we both felt very comfortable with you , you already felt like a part of the family being that we were lucky enough to have you as our daughters naming day celebrant .You truly were the perfect person and your guidance and help was invaluable.

    We are so grateful to you for allowing us to have so much input with our vows and the ceremony, it made it very personal and special and we loved the fact that you incorporated our 2 little girls into the ceremony to make them feel extra special on the day too.
    Your professionalism and calming influence both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself were very much appreciated and we wanted you to know that you really helped make our wedding day one of the most special day of our lives.

    We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family & friends & we will be definitely calling on you the next time a special occasion occurs. Thanks again Laura!

    Nikki & Paul Stiskin
