“From the second we met Haley we knew she was our person. She greeted us with a hug, had a drink and chatted, and as we left, my then-fiance said, “You nailed it babe. She’s amazing!” Her warmth, enthusiasm, kindness, genuine interest in us and our love story, as well as her sense of humour all made for one wicked ceremony. Chris was next level with his music and was super flexible with our space – making sure he could be heard well but not imposing on our bridal party. The most considerate, professional, in love, fun duo ever! Thank you again for making our day so epic! “
“First of all, we had so comments from our guests saying how amazing Chris’s music was. Our isle song he played even gave brad tears. He nailed every single one of our song selections, especially our chosen country song hurricane by Luke Combs. There is no doubt that his covers were even better then the originals. Haley was amazing! She made the process of getting married so easy and relaxed! Always checking in on us before the big day and made our ceremony so simple and beautiful. This made our lead up and start to the day less stressful for us. We would highly recommend these two together for your special day, as they are spectacular! Sam & Brad x”
“Dave and I changed everything about our wedding only a few weeks before the date. Leaving us to need a new celebrant and musician. From the moment we met Haley she made us feel at ease and ease the stress of our wedding relocation. We only met her a few weeks before our wedding but it felt like we had know her for a long time. Nothing was too hard for her she went above and beyond to make everything run so smoothly at our ceremony (and reception) . Every little detail Haley knew and it made our ceremony run with so much ease. We had so many guests coming up to us on the day saying how lovely and great Haley is. We also had Chris as our musician for our ceremony and reception. We were absolutely blown away by Chris’s performances. Chris learnt our first dance song in only a few days and he performed it “better than the original” Dave’s words. Chris knew how to read our crowd and he honestly made the atmosphere at our wedding so much fun, light hearted and sentimental. Our guests are still talking about how amazing he performed at our wedding. He seriously rocked it! We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Haley and Chris. They made our day so much better than we ever could have hoped for and for that we are truely grateful. Just amazing!! X”
From the moment we met Haley, Kain and I knew we had made the right choice. She immediately made us feel comfortable and it was like we had known her forever! We had every confidence that she was going to give us the relaxed, fun and lovely ceremony that we dreamed of. And boy did she deliver, above and beyond our expectations! Our ceremony was everything we hoped for and more. Haley made it feel so personal and made us feel so important and special, like one of our closest friends was officiating our wedding. It was fun, heartfelt and meaningful – it was us. She absolutely nailed it. We could not imagine our day without her and are so blessed and thankful to have had her as such an integral part of our day. We are truly grateful for everything Haley did for us. She is one of the most genuine, beautiful people we have ever met and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
“Haley and Chris, we’re still riding high after the wedding and so much of that is because of the joy you spread to us and our guests. SO MANY of them commented on how amazing you were! We simply cannot say how blessed we feel that you were both a part of our day. How much you became a friend to us over our coffee date meetings which gave such a fun excitement to our planning, and how much we loved every word of the beautiful ceremony you planned for us. (Also, how you managed to keep our crazy families in check as MC we’ll never know!) We just want to thank you again for making every single step so enjoyable, easy and so much fun. You’re truly gifted at what you do. Love, James & Cleo (October 6th 2019) Xx”
We had an epic experience with Haley, and would recommend Haley to anyone and everyone. From the get-go Haley was professional, helpful, and most importantly, fun, upbeat and easy to work with. Haley took the time to get to know us and our story, and created a ceremony perfect for us. We wouldn’t change a thing about our ceremony. One thing that stood out for us both was when checking in/communicating in the lead up it wasn’t just ‘work talk’, but Haley was also asking us how we were feeling – there was a genuine desire for us to enjoy the experience and the big day. If you’re looking for a celebrant, take the time to meet with Haley , she’s awesome at what she does!
“Dearest Haley, Rob and I cannot thank you enough for bringing the magic to our special day! From the moment we met you we knew you were something special! Being around you was like being around an old friend, so warm and fun and natural! Our wedding was an intimate little surprise in our family home! Everything was about keeping it simple and real, with the focus being solely on family and love! And you completed that picture perfectly! You were like one of the family, and you spoke as though you knew rob and I forever! Your words brought tears to my (and our guests) eyes as they so wonderfully portrayed our love and our union! You truly have a gift in what you do! Rob and I will be forever grateful for the role you played on our special day! BIG LOVE from Mr. & Mrs. Holding”
” We were recommended Haley through a good friend and knew at once how perfect she was to marry us. Haley’s warm, bubbly personality was perfect for our laid back ceremony and having her husband Chris as our musician for the ceremony was just the icing on the cake. Her communication in the lead up was so amazing and she gave us so extra information that helped us with song choices, our vows and a reading. Both Haley and Chris are both true professionals that have a warmth and caring attitude that helped make our day perfect. We would not change a thing! So many people commented at how great they both were. Chris went out of his way to learn the song we had picked out for walking down the aisle and in the end we like his version better than the original! We can’t thank Haley and Chris enough for how much they helped create the fun, loving and joyful ceremony on our special day! Ness and Brad x”
Dear Haley and Chris, As a mum you always dream of your daughters wedding day and how perfect it will be. My daughter Amy is an amazing young woman, a paramedic, loving, caring and yes she is also gay. When we got the news a year ago it was finally legal for my baby girl to marry the love of her life at home in Australia we cried we were all so happy. The girls started to arrange their wedding and it was heart breaking to here them tell vendors they were having a same sex marriage and then wait to hear if they would be approved or not. This was never the case with Haley and Chris I still remember how excited Amy and Skye were after their first meeting with Lovenotes. Haley has been amazing and always made the girls feel special and Chris played all their favourite songs and is an amazing singer and gentleman. Thank you both for making my little girls day very special. Your both very special people and are definitely in the right business of making dreams come true. Thank you from one of Mother of the Brides Christine ‘Love is Love’
“Well, where do I start…I first came upon the Love Notes website while scanning for local Central Coast celebrants. We were looking for someone who could bring a romantic yet relaxed vibe to our ceremony. Upon the first communication with Haley, we knew we made the right choice and it was when we then got to meet her for a nice Sunday arvo meeting where it further solidified our choice. Upon the lead up to the big day, Haley kept in communication and was always ready and available to answer any and all questions we had. ( she also takes care of all legal paperwork which is AMAZING!!) When the wedding day came around, Haley made all the guests so relaxed and made our dream ceremony come true. We literally had numerous guests come up and say to us how amazing the ceremony was and how great Haley was as a celebrant. If you’re looking for the PERFECT celebrant, Haley is your lady 🙂 Thankyou so much, you made our day so special!”
“Haley was very professional and so helpful throughout our wedding planning. Haley always replied very quickly and happily offered advice when we needed. I would highly recommend Haley and her husband Chris who played music throughout our ceremony and beginning of the reception which many our guests complemented.”
“To Haley & Chris…..Just from reading your website when searching for our celebrant, I could vibe your bubbly, outgoing and contagiously happy personally and I knew before even meeting you that you were the celebrant we wanted. And how perfect that your husband was a musician, the whole package having the two of you together. Despite it sprinkling during our ceremony, everything was perfect. The ceremony you personally wrote for us was the right amount of both humour and emotions. You made us feel at ease during the planning process as you were so informative and supportive with everything and anything. Always happy to help no matter what the question was. On the day Chris sounded incredible even though he had to be tuck away out of the rain. Our guest loved the live music and commented how great he was.! We thank you both for playing such a huge part in our big day. We had such a memorable day and are so greatful for all your hard work!! You two are amazing and I will be recommending and bragging about you to everyone!! Thanks again… Matt and Tracie 💕”
“Haley and Chris truly are the A team and we honestly couldn’t recommend them enough! We were both extremely picky when deciding on a celebrant to marry us and as soon as we met Haley at a local café we just knew that she was the woman for the job and we just clicked right away. We were absolutely blown away by the comments we received from guests about how beautiful and intimate our ceremony was and we owe it all to the lovely Haley and Chris, from Haley helping a stressed out Groom finalise his vows even hours before our ceremony and Chris willing to take on any song we threw at him and even inviting my brothers girlfriend to use his set and sing a few songs herself, it absolutely made our day and we are so thankful for you guys!!! The Bannisters Xx”
“Where do we even begin!!!! We had the absolute pleasure of having Haley as our celebrant and Chris as our musician on our special day. We met Haley at our local coffee shop by chance and we knew instantly she was a perfect fit for us, as a same sex couple we wanted to feel comfortable at our own wedding as possible and she did just that. Haley has a down to earth, outgoing & kind personality you don’t see too often these days, with a warm and welcoming nature that we loved from the beginning. Throughout the whole planning Haley made sure we were on track and offered her assistance to us 24hr leading up (haha). Haley asked if we had any music plans for our ceremony which we had not yet planned and she told us about her not only handsome but highly talented husband Chris. We had a country style rustic wedding so we knew instantly that Chris’s acoustic style would fit perfectly at our venue. The guests raved about his music after the wedding and we couldn’t have been any happier with his performances during the event. We are so lucky to have found this amazing couple by chance and feel blessed to have had both of them play a big part in our special day. We would 1000000% recommend these guys both Haley as a celebrant and Chris as a musician for your special day and wish them all the best in their future.”
“We had the pleasure of having Haley and Chris at our wedding late last year. We can’t praise them enough for their efforts before, during and even after our wedding day. As soon as we met Haley, we loved her. Her warmth and love for love is so obvious. She picked up on the vibe that we had planned for our wedding, even with our mediocre explanation! She recommended her husband Chris to us as an option for music for the ceremony. She couldn’t have been more right. We listened to all of his recordings on youtube and instagram over and over as our excitement grew. The helping nature of this couple was incredible and made decision making so easy during such an intense time. Haley knew our struggle with finding a band for our entertainment and went above and beyond suggesting, researching and communicating musicians and bands on our behalf as well as coaching us through planning our ceremony. She was so supportive of all our choices for the ceremony and so beautiful in her opinion of our personalised vows to each other. Haley made our ceremony so enjoyable, through the countless tears and laughter! Chris was incredible in learning one of our favourite songs as our aisle song. We are so appreciative of the effort Chris gave to practice and perform our most cherished songs. His music gave our ceremony and reception such a comfortable feel, we had so many guests compliment us on how fantastic her was. We cannot thank you both enough for all that you did to make our wedding absolutely perfect. If we ever get married again (to each other of course) Haley and Chris would definitely be there! We love you both!”
“Firstly, thank you for all your amazing work we absolutely loved the ceremony you put together for us and how smoothly everything ran. Everything was stress-free because you were so on top of everything! Mat and I, and all our guests loved Chris’s beautiful renditions of our chosen songs but also his serenading of the guests through the afternoon. We also loved that you both felt the vibe of our wedding and ran with it so seamlessly. Having the two of you on our side meant that we never had a worry about any of the technical ceremony/marital details and you made another aspect of wedding planning so much simpler and enjoyable. We truly loved having you both as part of our day and making it truly perfect for us and our guests.”
“ My partner Ben and I were on the hunt for a celebrant whose personality suited us both. Many celebrants were recommended to us but as soon as we met Haley we both looked at each other 2 minutes into the conversation and did a subtle nod. We knew we had to have her at our wedding! Haley- you’ve been so professional from start to finish. I wasn’t sure what to expect of a celebrant but you have blown us both away. Your ongoing communication, support and advice has been amazing and its still going and we have been married for 3 months now. After our ceremony, we had so many guests who came up to us complimenting us on what a perfect ceremony we had and in particular mentioning our celebrant and her delivery- I couldn’t flaw it and this was due to your organisation and preparation. I was so nervous on the day but having you there made everything run so smoothly. Haley, you went out of your way to introduce yourself to our family and friends and ensured everything was exactly the way we wanted it to. You guided us with the creation of our vows and ensured our ceremony was unique and personal to Ben and I. We have nothing but wonderful memories of our wedding ceremony. One of my favourite things about Haley too is that her voice is so clear and precise and not a word is lost in the ceremony. All our guests were engaged and could feel that our celebrant was not reading word to word (except for the legal side) but actually knew the history of the bride and groom and delivered a heart felt ceremony. Haley- Ben and I can’t thank you enough for all the you’ve done for us.…
“Haley, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing ceremony you provided us on our wedding day. From the moment we met you, we knew you were the right celebrant for us and it’s funny how things sometimes fall into place. While at the time we were a bit stressed about our first celebrant cancelling on us, we are now so so so glad we found you! You were always so reassuring to both of us, explaining all the steps in the process and helping us plan our perfect day. Adam tells me how on the day, while he was waiting for me to arrive (fashionably late of course), you talked with our guests, created conversations, made sure our groomsmen were all ready to go (with their buttonholes, pocket squares and ties) and you kept everyone calm! So many of our guests commented on how wonderful you were as a celebrant, and I loved all of your comments, personal touches, inclusions of our fur babies and Harry Potter references. You were perfectly well spoken, and most importantly, kept the ceremony fun and joyful. The knot tying ceremony with our Harry Potter fabric was a beautiful idea, and this is something we will have forever. Every suggestion you had for our ceremony, worked perfectly. And I loved that the sun came out and we were announced into the glorious sunlight! What a day! We will be recommending you to every single couple we know that is about to embark on the wonderful path of marriage! We truly believe you have a special gift for creating a beautiful, personalised marriage ceremony. Thank you Haley. xx “
“My husband and I couldn’t be more grateful and happy that we had Haley help us with our wedding ceremony. She was so supportive throughout the process and really helped us with everything we needed for the ceremony. Haley was so professional with all the requirements in preparation for the wedding, and really made it easy for us with reminder emails and calls to get us organised. She took away all the stress related to the ceremony and also made amazing recommendations. She was so supportive and positive throughout preparation and on the day, it was a huge relief as we had enough things to worry about with the rest of the reception, etc. On the day she really helped keep things together, and was such a bright and positive influence on the ceremony. Thank you so much! Chris was also great – his music throughout the ceremony helped create a great atmosphere. Chris prepared all the songs we hoped for and played well before and after the ceremony. It was perfect for our outdoor ceremony. Thank you, Haley and Chris for being a great part of our special day!! Xoxo Jaeyoung and Youngsoo”
From the first moment we met Haley about 8 months before the wedding, she immediately put us at ease. She made the whole thing very simple and was always contactable during the planning process if needed. Not to mention the amazing ceremony she created for us that was just as we wanted- short and sweet, but personal 😊. Chris played my aisle song so perfectly and it created a beautiful atmosphere at the ceremony. Haley and Chris are a #powercouple who clearly love each other, and what they do, which is demonstrated in their work and commitment to making beautiful memories for other couples as well. Thankyou!!!
“Thank you Haley for making our wedding day truly incredible! Your easy going nature and enthusiasm made planning our ceremony such an enjoyable experience. From the moment we met you, we knew we wanted you as a part of our wedding – it felt like we instantly ‘clicked’ and you knew exactly what we were after. You were able to guide us through the formalities whilst always ensuring that our ceremony was a true reflection of our relationship. You kept our ceremony light-hearted and fun, while also keeping it romantic and sincere. We couldn’t have asked for a more magical day and you were a big part of that. Thank you again for making our day so special.”
“What an incredible experience we had. Firstly I have to say Haley you’re amazing. The time and effort you put into getting to know us was a memory in itself. You’re beautiful inside and out and I couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant to marry us. Everyone commented on how much they loved our ceremony, in particular your words. I love how you and Chris work so perfectly together. His voice is incredible. You’re both so talented! Thanks again for being apart of our day. xxx”
“Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for the beautiful ceremony you composed for us. Your careful thought, beautiful words and hard work made our wedding day perfect. The unconventional style that we opted for didn’t phase you-you adapted to it and enhanced the intimate mood that we were looking for. You made the ceremony completely personal to us and our families, and we will treasure this memory forever. Now, I’m afraid we can’t say that we would use you again… because a divorce is not on the cards but we would definitely recommend Love Notes Ceremonies to anyone taking the plunge. Thank you once again! All our love, Tim & Anna
Haley… We could not be happier with the day. You were amazing and so perfect at ensuring that everything ran perfect. The words you spoke reflected us in every way as if you were part of the family, In fact, people asked how long have you known us – as the way you spoke it seemed you have been part of lives for many years… “Haley was the most amazing celebrant. Her professional, caring approach and loving words made our day perfect. Haley made our day ran seamlessly without any issue and ensured our wedding day was PERFECT”
“In considering a celebrant for your big day, we cannot recommend Love Notes Ceremonies enough. Haley, thank you so much for your incredible dedication, contagious bubbliness and awesome knack for making us feel completely at ease and relaxed in the lead up to the big event. You went above and beyond, right down to the smallest details that we would have otherwise completely overlooked. On the day, we could not have been more impressed with your ceremony delivery – we are still buzzing and cannot stop smiling and reminiscing on how perfect it all was. Our guests commented on the relaxed, humorous and exceptional way the ceremony was delivered. It really was busting with love and happiness and we want to thank you for all your time. You made it so special!”
Thank you both SO SO SO much for everything on the day! Chris, you set the mood completely and your voice is absolutely flawless and lovely and everybody was coming up to me going “who is this guy, this guy is great!!”. We loved you and everyone loved you. Music is so important to me because I feel like it can bring so many emotions to situations and you made it perfect. Lastly, thank you for our isle song…..Songbird. Learning this song meant a lot to me and although to begin I was sceptical if I would like ANYONE’s version over Eva Cassidy’s, your spin on it was exactly what the song needed to suit not only me but bring that little bit of something else that I knew James would love. It was truly beautiful! Haley, from beginning to end you have been so professional, personable and made the whole process so easy but so exciting and fun! You made the process so lovely! Your words on the day were so beautiful and I’m so excited to be able to watch the footage of the ceremony so I can hear it all again. (And really focus and listen- with no nerves haha). We had so many people praise your words, your manner and everything you made the ceremony become! It wouldn’t have been the same without you. You fit with us and it was so comforting having you there! 🙂
Brad and I want to thank both you and Rudd for being apart of our wedding day! You guys are the BEST!!! Chris is absolutely unreal, his voice is so, so beautiful, he set the perfect vibe for our ceremony and it was everything we wanted. Thank you! Haley, from start to finish you made everything a breeze. From explaining every little detail throughout the paperwork process (before & after the wedding), to always being so helpful if we needed any advice regarding the ceremony, or had an questions, you were always there to help. You went above and beyond and made our ceremony so unique to us. You added a personal touch that was a true reflection to Brad and I individually and as a couple. The happy, fun, confident, calm vibe you exude not just personally but professionally as well, made both Brad and I feel at ease and relaxed. Together you both compliment one another and are the perfect duo. We cannot recommend you and Rudd highly enough! Thank you for making our day that little more perfect!
If you are looking for a fresh, fun and modern approach to your wedding ceremony- look no further. From the outset Haley left us with no question unanswered. Planning a wedding can be hard, but Haley made it so easy and guided us through the whole process (and even checked in with us after!). The ceremony was everything we wanted and more. We were after a simple and relaxed vibe for our ceremony and Haley delivered the goods- she worked the crowd, had our guests smiling and laughing and most of all put Benny and my nerves at ease. Haley was professional and organised and gave us plenty of ideas to help us achieve our most perfect day. However, it was not only Haley that made our day so magical; you could call them the dynamic duo- Chris catered to our music preferences and wooed our guests with his amazing voice and talented guitar playing skills. We definitely think having Chris and Haley made our day all that more special and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is planning their big day. Seriously these guys are a must!
It doesn’t get much better than you two! Love Notes were the perfect addition to our wedding, it honestly would not have been the same without you both. Haley, you couldn’t have been more perfect! You were such a pleasure to deal with and helped us plan and organize the whole ceremony with ease. On the day you were so friendly and welcoming to everyone but still so organized, keeping Steve calm and delivering a fun, relaxed and hilarious yet beautiful ceremony! Which wouldn’t have been complete without the killer tunes from Ruddy! You absolutely nailed our special songs during the ceremony and kept belting out hits all arvo to create the perfect atmosphere and early d-floor! We can’t thank you guys enough!!!
