Rev. Lindy Irving
I love weddings! I love everything about weddings! The love story, the outfits, the guests, the vows, the rings… everything!… and I absolutely adore rituals because they’re such an important and meaningful part of any wedding ceremony. Whether it’s the beautiful exchanging of the vows, lighting a unity candle or having your hands bound together in an ancient Handfasting, rituals are the heart and soul of a ceremony. And yet, so many of the ways in which a couple can be legally married are devoid of these sacred ceremonial rituals, which is such a shame because although most couples who choose a Celebrant don’t want a religious ceremony, they still want it to carry the “weight” of a religious ceremony, and Rituals are what brings solemnity and grace to the proceedings. For this reason and because it’s an honour to be asked to be a part of such a special occasion, I never take a ceremony lightly. Instead, I see every couple as completely unique and so try to make sure that every ceremony is completely unique.

Lindy was a highlight of our wedding day. Not only did she work with us from day one to craft a meaningful and charming ceremony, but she also explained the rich traditions that came to play a part in our wedding. Lindy even met with me in Florida when travelling with her husband to introduce herself before the big day. Her down to earth manner and sincerity shone through in every decision and my family and friends couldn't be more impressed. I highly, highly recommend Lindy as the celebrant for your special day.

Lindy, where do we even start with this review... We cannot thank you enough for the ceremony that you delivered for us right down to the finest detail. We asked Lindy right back in day 1 for us to have a relaxed, funny and personal ceremony and aye she certainly delivered. Our story was brilliantly put together telling the story of our lives and relationship together and sharing some of our most treasured memories. Due to a contraflow on route to our venue our guests ended up being 1 hour late but our guests that were at the venue were never left uninformed and were put at real ease. There was laughter, tears, and love all throughout the ceremony, which many of our guests commented on so much so that one actually wants Lindy to carry out his funeral service.

I just wanted to thank Lindy for every little aspect of our ceremony. Lindy is such a lovely down to earth person who listens to what you want and puts her heart and soul into her work . We knew from the start Lindy was perfect for what we wanted. We asked for funny and light-hearted and she delivered it. Lindy had people crying and laughing and everyone commented on the lovely service. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts .

Lindy is amazing. She has a very calming presence and she is incredibly organised and her tools to help you plan the ceremony are so helpful. Our ceremony was perfect because of her. I am so grateful with how easy and stress free she made it and she has a beautiful touch in making it very special and with a gorgeous balance of humour. I recommend her to any couple and also to anyone who is organising it from overseas as I did. I found the process so easy to organise through email and it was only until our wedding day that we met her face to face which was absolutely fine because everything was organised and ready. Thank you so so much for being part of our day. Xo

From the moment we contacted Lindy we knew we had picked the perfect person to conduct our Vow Renewal ceremony. Lindy's natural gift of listening to what we were looking for, gaining insight into our history together and by injecting a bit of fun, gave us a unique ceremony that was just perfect in every way. We cannot thank Lindy enough for making our day special and would highly recommend her to everyone.

We can't thank you enough for our wonderful ceremony it really was amazing. We had a feeling it was going to be good when we first got in touch, and had no doubts having you as our celebrant was going to be something special, but there are no words that can describe just how great our ceremony actually was to experience. It was better than we ever imagined it could be. You made us feel so relaxed , and we loved every word , every second, every moment of our ceremony. The way you made it so special and personal for Jennifer and I and together with our kids as a family was just perfect from start to finish . Our sand ceremony was something so special for us as a family and your words were lovely . We have been just taking time to take it all in over the weekend and both Jen and I loved everything about our whole wedding day, we have been talking about our best bits and we both have said our ceremony was what we loved the most of our wedding day , Once again we thank you for making our wedding day so much more than we could ever have wished for. We are so pleased your recorded the ceremony. Love the video and look forward to seeing the rest of it.

I think it's needless to say we are still recovering after our exiting weekend. We had an amazing time with our friends and really enjoyed every minute of it. We are very grateful for the wonderful ceremony you put together for us. It turned out even better than we imagined.
