Krissy is kind, patient and thoughtful
“We are so grateful to have Krissy celebrate us on our special day. From the very beginning Krissy has been so warm and personable, getting to know us with genuine interest. She was quick to communicate, answering all our confused questions and offering suggestions every step of the way. Krissy was also very professional on the day, handling a pesky overhead helicopter delay with ease and humour; her gentle nature and guidance really helped calm our nerves even when I obliviously stood on the wrong side at the ceremony. She is kind, patient, and thoughtful and that really showed and made one of the most stressful parts of wedding planning go so smoothly, we wouldn’t have had it any other way! Sulin and Luke

With Krissy’s help it all turned out perfectly
Having Krissy as our celebrant made our wedding day run so smoothly; from helping with the planning process with ideas and advice, to fixing my bridesmaids dresses on the day so they looked their best, Krissy was really there for us on a day which can be very nerve wracking! We were both really pleased with the ceremony and how we could make it our very own, and with Krissy’s help it turned out perfectly! Krissy has a special connection with me, so it meant even more having her there on our special day. Thank you for everything and making our day perfect. Amber and Jason

Therese and Lindsey
Krissy had an eye for the little details
My husband, Lindsey and I stumbled on Krissy on the celebrants list. Not knowing what to expect from the organizing and arranging a celebrant, Krissy was excellent in pointing us in the right direction. Krissy ended-up suggesting a venue for our wedding that was special to our hearts and resulted in a remarkable location for our wedding. Krissy has a very calm, kind and loving voice that made the stressful time standing in front of family and friends, when your heart is pounding and your legs are shaking, possible. Our day would not have been the same without Krissy, she has an eye for the little details, like taking my bouquet so we could hold hands through the ceremony. Krissy made sure our day and time were special, which we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Krissy, Therese and Lindsey.

She was also very efficient in preparing for our registry wedding, and knowledgeable about the process. We firmly believe that getting married to the person you love is a very special moment in a couple’s life. Ours was just a simple ceremony but Krissy helped make it a special and memorable one. The venue at the Village hub she offered was also beautiful and easily accessible. We are beyond grateful to Krissy.
Beautiful love on the day, and flowers from your garden.

Krissy made it special for us
It was wonderful to share this moment of our lives with Krissy. We did a registry wedding ceremony on New Brighton Beach, and she was excited and happy to share this moment, and make it special to us. In addition we had to postpone our wedding twice due to Covid-19 issues, and Krissy was really helpful and supportive to us.
Passionate and beautiful beach wedding. Loved the joy and sharing it with your family in Brazil.

We could not have dreamed of a better celebrant to share this beautiful moment with us
Krissy was a wonderful celebrant to our wedding. She was very professional, took care of everything for us in preparation to the wedding and was very accommodating. We were a little nervous before the ceremony, but Krissy made us feel very comfortable as soon as she arrived. She has a naturally warming voice and smile (which I think is very important for a wedding celebrant), and we could not have dreamed of a better celebrant to share this beautiful moment with us. Thank you again Krissy Michael & Clementine

Everything was smooth and perfect. ” Aubrey & Khris

Above and beyond our expectations
Krissy was definitely the right choice as a wedding celebrant for us. Her knowledge made sure that everything ran smoothly on the day, and she was flexible enough for us to have a ceremony that reflected us as individuals. Her charisma was infectious, spreading joy and warmth to everyone. After the rehearsal, she even stayed around and helped decorate and cook dinner! She was definitely a true member of the wedding party- most of our guests thought she was an old friend! Above and beyond our expectations. Thanks so much for everything! Krissy, you were amazing.

Kiri and Dan
Krissy is very warm and accepting.
Krissy married us in November 2018. This was no easy task! We were both widowed young and we wanted a ceremony that not only reflected our love but also honoured the legacy of our former spouses. Krissy is very warm and accepting. She understood immediately what we wanted and gave us plenty of guidance and ideas, yet the ceremony was still unique to us. On the day Krissy was very calm and helped everyone feel at ease. She created a warm and welcoming atmosphere quickly. We continue to receive comments from our family and friends about how heartfelt the ceremony was and how well Krissy handled the occasion. We would highly recommend Krissy.
Joe and Tori
You are the best.
Thank you so much for making our day very special. you helped to bring two cultures together in an exciting and fun celebration. You are the best.
Chris and Kristen
From the moment we met her we knew we made the right choice.
Krissy was just amazing! She really understood what it was we wanted on our special day and was so organised. She put together a beautiful summary of our relationship together and on the day spoke beautifully and really made us feel at ease. Even though it wasn’t great weather she did grin and bear it with a huge smile on her face and her warm presence. Thank you so much for everything.

Katrina and Dave
It really was everything we’d hoped for and wanted.
A friend summed it up for me ‘Many weddings focus on structure rather than essence. In ours, the essence of what was meant was of highest significance’. You allowed us the flexibility and confidence to create the wedding we wanted.
Katy and Karl
Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. We loved everything and the ceremony went really well. Glad we managed to hold it together and not cry!
Courtney and Chad
Krissy created a beautiful ceremony from our words and an energy that honored who we are and what we wanted to create.
We had the most wonderful Celebrant for our wedding ceremony, Krissy Christensen. From the first meeting she heard our vision, honored our values, and got to know us through the telling of our story.

Krissy was everything we could ask for in a celebrant. She understood that we wanted a no fuss ceremony and ensured we got to have it just the way we wanted it. Krissy was very friendly and approachable and made us feel comfortable. She was very professional and was able to provide us with all the advice we required to ensure the day ran smoothly.

She created a warm and relaxing environment and helped everyone to thoroughly enjoy the day and engage in the service. We were so grateful to have someone that was so genuine and professional with their approach. We felt safe and trusted Krissy with everything she took on! She even helped provide us with the perfect outdoor rug that matched our colour scheme! I highly recommend you book her, pronto!
Honestly Krissy, thanks again for being a part of our day, we can’t tell people enough how perfect everything was!

Bonnie and Phil
From the planning stage to the wedding day Krissy’s reassuring presence and helpful tips made our ceremony go without a hitch. Her willingness to sit down and help plan a ceremony that suited us a couple took all the stress away. She was attentive to our requests, up for a giggle and kept us calm on the day. Thank you very much for all your time and care. We couldn’t have wished for a better celebrant.
Janna and Sam
We chose Krissy for our celebrant as we knew without a doubt, after having her officiate for my fathers’s funeral, that we were in the best possible hands. Our day was absolutely perfect in every way. Krissy is totally unflappable, wonderfully warm and reassuring and has a genuine gift of bringing joy, laughter and inner calm. Committed to being on the same page, Krissy helped us piece together a ceremony that was personal and meaningful, ready with helpful input as and when needed. It was a joyful, teary, relaxed, warm, wonderful wedding and we can’t imagine a better person on the planet to take us by the hand and gently guide us through it. We are so very grateful. Thank you Krissy.
Kevin and Kirsty
My husband Kevin and I were married in January and Krissy was our celebrant. We could not have wished for a better person to play this special part in our day. Right from the first meeting Krissy made it clear that she would make the day how we wanted it to be and took the time to really get to know us. We appreciated that so much and it really made the ceremony so personal. We had so many lovely comments about her from family and other guests saying what a great job she did, not only in speaking but also the humour and thoughtfulness she put into the words she spoke. Krissy, thank you so much for making our day even more special. We will recommend you to anyone!
Rosamund and David
Stunning and relaxed wedding with Rosamund and David at Langdale winery, West Melton. Thanks for the chance to share with you,
Malcolm and Michelle
My wife Michelle and I used Krissy Christensen as our marriage celebrant in March and found her outstanding. Her preparation prior to the event was very particular ensuring no detail was left unchecked. She shared valuable information regarding the legal side of things along with insights into the ‘little things’ we could consider to make the day a fabulous success. She possesses a genuine warmth and interest in people and relates well with all ages making the interaction with the wedding party, in-laws etc. very comfortable and on many occasions, very humorous. We would both highly recommend Krissy to anyone wanting ‘the right fit’ to arrange their day in style.
Josh and Carol
Thank you so much for being our celebrant! Your guidance through the planning process was invaluable and very much appreciated. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and your kind support put us both at ease during what can be a very stressful experience. All of our guests commented on how lovely you were and how neatly you fitted in as a welcome part of the day.
Warm regards and thanks again.”
