Carina took on the responsibilities of being both the Celebrant and Planner for our wedding.
As a celebrant we couldn't have asked for more. Carina spent time to understand both ourselves as individuals and the relationship we share. Through this she scripted a beautiful ceremony, written as if she had known us for all these years.
In addition, Carina conducted all the planning activities for the wedding. Engaging with all the vendors both before, on and after the wedding. This ensured the wedding went smoothly for all parties.
We would highly recommend Carina for anyone looking a celebrant that truly goes the extra mile and puts such love and care into her craft.

Carina Burress made my wedding experience so easy and fun exactly how we like life to go. Thanks to covid 19 our original wedding had to be canceled and when we found carina it was like that was who we were always meant to see. She was so helpful with any questions leading up to the day and helped make everything so easy. I love how she personalized our ceremony to fit our little family and who we are.

Carina has been absolutely wonderful, right from the get go. Her bubbly personality, warm nature and infectious laugh not only made the whole process of choosing a celebrant easy but made us feel at ease on the special day. Our ceremony was heartfelt and uniquely tailored to us and Carina’s energy shone right through. Thank you again so much for a beautiful ceremony xxx

From our initial meeting through to our big day Carina was a happy burst of energy that made picking a celebrant by far the easiest pick of the entire wedding. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and individually, and wrote us an amazing ceremony which was unique to us and loved by all who attended. While we were caught up in the whirlwind of emotions our guests have since told us that they didn’t once drift off during the 30 minute ceremony as she kept it funny, heartwarming and relevant to us! Our guests were raving about Carina all throughout the reception. We can’t thank Carina enough for helping us create some amazing memories and can’t recommend her highly enough!

We had the pleasure of having Carina as our celebrant recently. We could not have chosen more wisely. Funny, full of life and just just fitted our wedding vibe so perfectly. Not to mention all the little extras she helped us with along the way!

You made our ceremony to light and funny but also meaningful and we couldn't be any happier!

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our special day everything I had dreamed of. You are one of a kind & we couldn't have anyone more perfect for us!

We were definitely meant to find you!

I finally have time to do important things like REVIEWS. I've been waiting to have time to sit down and write a mega-awesome one befitting of the mega-awesome job you did for our ceremony...

Carina Burress The Wordsmith Marriage Celebrant, was a real standout. In particular, we told her that the Acknowledgement of Country and recognition of the Whadjuk Noongar People at the beginning of the ceremony was very important to us, and she went above and beyond to write an acknowledgement that was detailed, thoughtful and personal. After the ceremony, we had a lot of people ask if she was a friend of ours, which I think is a testament to her warmth and energy.
