Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around.

You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.

You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.

When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement.

They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.

There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are.

The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever.

Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all.

A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face.

In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.

Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you.

You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon.

You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.

You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you.

You find strength in knowing you have a best friend and a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end.

Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile.

Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.

The service was just what we wanted  and perfect for us and our guests.

IMG_6168To an incredibly great man…

Dear Nigel,

we would like to thank you for the special and most important role you played on our special day.

We could not have asked for a better representation than yourself. We had endless comments on the ceremony and how well you put it all together. You touched the hearts of our family and made my Wife’s Dad feel more at ease as this day was a big day for him having to give his “little girl”away. We had video footage of our ceremony and smile at many pleasant moments you bought to the occasion. You spoke from the heart and spoke to us individually as if you had known us for years. We are so grateful to have had a warm, generous and professional person like yourself as our marriage officer. Thank you for the time you invested in us, meeting us on numerous occasions to get to know us and make us comfortable with you. If we could do it all over again we would not change a thing.

Many thanks to you Nigel.

Kindest regards, Go well and God bless.

Wow! What a special day it was, what a great ceremony. I’m so thrilled that we found you. 

Thank you very much for the role you played in our special day. We really appreciated your calm, kind, professional and engaging manner – and our guests did, too. They mentioned how much they liked you and the intimacy of our wedding. Thank you for making our ceremony so incredible. We IMG_6139are so happy it all worked out the way we had anticipated. Thanks for making it happen!  It was everything I thought it would be! And then some. It was heartfelt and sincere, you really connected with the guests and mostly with us. All the special touches you added to the ceremony really made the day amazing. You set the tone for the rest of the evening. We had a blast! 

Thank you for giving us the ceremony that we dreamed of. We have heard over and over again it was the “best,” “most sincere,” “sweetest” from everyone that we have talked to.You love your work and it shows.  We will remember you forever, Nigel.

With fondness and deep appreciation,

Thandi  & Victor

Hi Nigel,

Thank you very much for playing such a huge part in making our special day an occasion to remember. The inter-faith ceremony was very intimate and flowed perfectly through the “order of proceedings” . Many of our guests could not believe that we only had two consultations with you prior to our big day. This was no doubt due to you taking time to get to know us and referencing what we had shared with you throughout the ceremony. Your sincerity and attention to detail, taking into account everything that was important to us, showed that you genuinely cared about us committing to each other, rather than just going through the motions.

If you were looking for a calling….look no further!

Thanks once again and regards,

Graeme and Arpana

Hi Nigel,
We cannot thank you enough for your support prior to our marriage, our wonderful marriage ceremony and the continued support and help afterwards  to get everything sorted out with Home Affairs.

Russell and I could not even imagine that ‘our’ day could be so very relaxed, happy,  intimate and special. It truly felt like a friend was doing our ceremony. All our guests complimented us on a beautiful wedding ceremony and it was so wonderful because of how you made it.

Thank you for really listening to us as we shared about our love of each other and what we had hoped for our  special day. Thank you for getting in on my ‘prank’ walking down the  isle, to see you and all our wedding guests join in and do the ‘ Mr  Bean dance ‘ was one of the highlights of our day and we have shared many laughs remembering the sight.  Russell loved it!

We are really looking forward to reading our love letters to each other on our first anniversary! It was such a lovely thought and a tradition we plan to continue each  year.

Russell and I would highly recommend your services to any couple that was planning on getting married. You certainly helped make our occasion very memorable.

Many thanks and kindest regards,
Russell and Laura Yelseth
