"...we can honestly say that our wedding would not have been the same without Syd. We didn't know what was involved when organising a ceremony but Syd's experience and knowledge really showed through to guide us to create the ceremony we both wanted.
Syd was always happy to meet up or speak on the phone if needed and was very understanding of our busy schedule and kept in regular contact. He was great at the ceremony, calm, very professional and relaxed! With his help we realised that dreams do come true and movie-like weddings are possible.
We highly recommend him and we are 100% sure our wedding couldn't have gone better
Thank you, Syd, for making our day such a special one!" - Alina & Mihai Totu
"Upon meeting Syd, his calm and reassuring manner put us at ease immediately. We had the added difficulty of planning our wedding from overseas so Syd's ability to go with the flow and work around our challenging timeline made what could have been a very stressful process, a breeze. His warm and cheery presence added a great deal to our day and we were so pleased to have had him be a part of our wedding. We would highly recommend Syd to anyone looking to tie the knot." - Mr & Mrs Blum
"Choosing New Zealand for our marriage was easy. One of the most beautiful places in the world plus the government websites were easy to use, making the whole process of obtaining visas and registrar permissions stress-free.
Picking a celebrant was the hard part as we would be travelling from overseas and didn’t know anyone who could help us. We contacted several by email and hoped for the best. (We got it)
Syd was chosen because of his friendly, laid back but professional approach which put us at ease.
His tireless efforts to make things go as smooth as silk included meeting us at the airport on arrival, taking us to our place of stay, collecting and taking us to the registrar the following morning and conducting our rehearsal based on the beautiful ceremony that he had composed for us. Syd also guided us as to a choice of venues, one being the Waitakere Estate which we opted for. It could not have been more perfect.
Wonderful chapel, lovely rooms with superb views, excellent facilities, attentive staff (thank you Susie) and great food.
The photographer, wedding cake and white doves were also all organised by our main man giving us the complete package.
Our winter wedding, with clear blue skies and sunshine, will be remembered forever as our most special day thanks to the wonderful Syd and his gorgeous wife Mary who we now count as friends." - Bill and Mahesh
