Testimonials

To the couples that took the time to write a few words about my celebrant services, thank you. I wish you all the very best in love and life and hope the coming years are filled with many great memories and happiness. Best wishes Gramatia (Toula).

 

Thank you again for all that you did, you were wonderful! We really appreciated how organised and efficient you were, and how knowledgeable you were about all the various elements of the ceremony. Understanding the symbolism really enriched the experience for us, and our guests all commented on this too. But mostly we loved how you really managed to capture us. We really felt that it represented us so well. You are very intuitive, Toula! We felt like we did absolutely nothing, and you just took care of everything and reflected us perfectly. Thanks again. Lots of love, Cassie and Emanuel

 

Craig and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony! Thank you most of all for listening to what was important to us and then creating a service that was beyond what we had ever envisaged. Thank you for the research you carried out to ensure we stayed true to my Scottish traditions. Thank you for emailing our families to involve them in the hand wrapping ceremony, they felt included from the very beginning. Thank you for instilling us both with confidence on the day, we knew you were there to support us through our vows if we got too emotional. And thank you, thank you, thank you for being such a beautiful person you really did make our day so much more joyous by being part of it.
With love, Kim and Craig Bellis

 

Exchanging of the Crowns (Stefana)

When we were deciding on a celebrant, we had lots of interviews, and as soon as we interviewed Toula (Gramatia) we knew that she was the one that we wanted to marry us. We found that most celebrants spoke about what they liked to have in ceremonies, but Toula was different, she wanted to know all about us, our cultures and our likes and dislikes, so that she could develop a very personal ceremony that suited us perfectly. Anthony is from a Greek background and I am from an Australian background and Toula was able to incorporate many customs from both cultures into the ceremony. As Toula also has a Greek background, she had a very in depth understanding of the customs and how they were to be carried out. In the lead up to the day and during the ceremony Toula was very organised, warm, friendly and personable and because of this she was able to create a fun, relaxed and happy atmosphere for all of our guests. I had many compliments from our guests about how perfect the ceremony and our celebrant were. I would recommend Toula to all my friends and family and I’m so happy that we were able to find her for the most important day of our lives. Thank you Toula!   Love Cara and Anthony

 

When we first met Toula we instantly knew we wanted her as our celebrant because she was easy to talk to and gave us so many ideas for our ceremony.  We are both from Brazil and don’t have any specific customs in our wedding ceremonies but Toula gave us some great options and in the end we chose the Sand Ceremony which was perfect for us as we both love the beach and connected with the words and symbolism. The ceremony was enjoyed by all our friends because Toula made it engaging and included everyone.

Toula, thank you for making our commitment ceremony so memorable.  Both Carl, myself and our guests had such a great time during the ceremony. You were so much fun, very engaging and always professional. We are not the traditional type and wanted a ceremony which was unique to us as a couple and you captured that. Thank you again for an awesome day.

Toula performed our naming ceremony for our little boy, Tyler. Seeing as we’re both non-traditional when it comes to religion we wanted something a bit different that was specific to us and encapsulated who Tyler is, a free spirit. 
Toula came up with some great ideas that we hadn’t even thought of, and performed the ceremony in our chosen location which had special significance to us as a family. 
We loved the event as did our friends, and congratulate Toula for performing the ceremony in less than ideal weather conditions!, whilst managing to stay poised and calm throughout. A special day that will always be remembered.

We chose Toula (Gramatia) because of her Greek background and also her personality. Both George and I are from Greek heritage and had previously married in a Greek Orthodox Church so it was important to our families and to us to incorporate these traditions in our ceremony. We also wanted something more modern and Toula came up with a ceremony script that included all the traditions in a fresh way, which appealed to us. The words she used to describe the Stefana (The Crowning of the bride and groom) were perfect and kept true to the Orthodox meaning. She was also a lot of fun and very engaging with us during our meetings and on the day. It was a beautiful ceremony and we both thank her for making it so special.

Gramatia, we would love to say how much of a pleasure it was to have you as our celebrant. You were always so organised & made sure we were on track with our side of things. Whenever we emailed or called you would respond so quickly. Many of our guests commented on how great you were… such a wonderful personality to help portray our love story. Your ideas & suggestions were also very helpful! So thank you for being a part of our big day, and thanks so much for the awesome job you did on our Wedding Ceremony.

From our first meeting with you Toula, Stan and I knew our day was going to be absolutely perfect, we all clicked instantly. Not knowing where to start you guided us through selecting our vows to organising the guests on the day, and knew exactly when to hand me a tissue during the ceremony. We had such a wonderful day full of laughter and happiness and thank you for playing such a big part in it. You made our re-affirmation ceremony wonderful.
