What they are saying
Since our wedding, we have felt our love buzzing through us even more intensely… We feel very grateful to Oceana for facilitating such beautiful energy on our day! Her words really resonated with us and allowed us to feel connected, present and in love. Oceanahas a natural, loving way of creating the right space for a meaningful ceremony; our wedding was so much more than we expected. We recommend Oceana for every couple who wishes to feel deeply in love on their wedding day. Groom: Bobby 37, and bride: Veerle 30
I will always cherish our wedding day as a day that was filled with more love than I have ever experienced in my life and this love flowed not just through Mitch and myself, but through all who were present, and I am eternally grateful to you, Oceana for helping us create this.
Thank you Oceana for making our day very special. The ceremony was truly gorgeous. Having our friends blessing our rings with such warm intention, adds to the magic of wearing our rings of love each moment. The way you arranged our vows and your added treasures was glorious.
The ceremony reflected intimacy, beauty, openness, honesty, grace, tenderness, creativity, imagination, entertainment, fun and love. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding ceremony and feel both privileged and blessed to have had Oceana as our celebrant.
The wedding of my daughter and Iain was especially very beautiful and very unusual. Oceana created an extremely moving ceremony which touched my heart and moved me to tears. The ceremony brought everyone together in ways I’ve not experienced before. Oceana was definitely the perfect celebrant for my daughter Jenny and Iain.

We both enjoyed our wedding. The ceremony was beautiful, thank you so much!
I enjoyed Oceana’s service so much i cannot find fault with it. I loved all the guests being involved in the service; it brought everyone together from the start of the wedding and continued all through the weekend. Oceana brought into the service the love and happiness of being together to celebrate a wedding of loved ones. Oceana’s creation of her wedding warm up including the women’s business was special and also the men’s business, especially the men singing and marching back to the women ….that was awesome. It was so heartwarming….. it touched ones soul. Bringing many happy memories I just have to think of that beautiful day and my heart sings. I think the one word that comes to mind about the wedding service is togetherness.

Oceana is such an inspired and creative celebrant. We felt supported by her to have the wedding that we desired and the day was magical. Not only did my husband and I feel that it was a beautiful experience, but most of the guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!! Oceana, somehow, made everyone at the ceremony feel as though they were just as much a part of it as we were. Thank you Oceana. You helped to capture our love for each other and share it with our closest family and friends.

Hi Oceana - We want to say thank you for creating the wedding of our dreams!! Being thousands of kilometres away from our family and friends you made us feel like home right away. From the very beginning we talked the same language. We really appreciate all your help and the way you created the ceremony for our special day. Thank you guys again for this unforgettable day.
Thank you so much Oceana for planning this wonderful wedding. Thanks for your help, the pictures, the arrangement and your warm and heartfelt way you made us feel welcome from the very beginning. Whenever we think of Australia now we always think of you as well.

True Love is Ageless
Pat and Mervyn
Brunswick Heads NSW
Soul mates Pat Argles, 68 and Mervyn Timbs, 81 have been together for 21 years. Around Christmas time Mervyn asked Pat to marry him and gave her an engagement ring. On Saturday, in their backyard in Brunswick Heads their long awaited marriage was conducted by wedding celebrant Oceana. Mervyn is unwell and mostly in a wheel chair these days. Patricia was so excited and honoured to be his wife. When she first contacted Oceana they were planning to elope…however word got out to the family who were thrilled and many were there, flower girls were in abundance.
.This was a beautiful deeply touching wedding ceremony were words of love and vows were exchanged. The reason that Mervyn finally wanted to get married because “I am getting too old not to” with Pat sharing “I am proud to be Merv’s wife. He has always been there for me. Mervyn is my rock and we have done everything together. We have been through rough times and tremendous times. We have enjoyed a lot of travelling together. Now we are putting Merv’s health first.” After two decades of being together, this was a magical moment for Pat and Mervyn and heart opening for all who were there….yes true love is ageless.

Oceana made our wedding experience truly the happiest day of our lives! She helped us create a beautiful, unique ceremony guiding us patiently through the daunting process and suggesting relevant ways for us to express our love to each other. The fact that we were in another state did not affect the process at all. Her calmness and positivity ensured all went smoothly on the day. We couldn't have asked for a more special day and can't thank Oceana enough for all her efforts

Rowena and David
"Last Saturday I photographed my longest-lasting ceremony, at one hour and thirty-one minutes of joy!
Wedding celebrant Oceana crafted a heart-felt, inclusive ceremony on beautiful, sunny Belongil beach for David and Rowena. Here guests joined in a warm up circle, sharing feelings and memories about this gorgeous couple, bringing everyone together into a shared heart space before the ceremony began. The men honoring the groom and the woman honouring the bride.
Then as the waves danced along the shore, these two beautiful souls spoke words of love and commitment to each other and also to the new family they were creating. There was the holding of hands, hearts connecting, blessings on rings, stone stupas and the Velveteen Rabbit even made an appearance.
This sentimental softie of a photographer struggled quite a few times to stay in control of the tears as I photographed one of the most sincere, from-the-heart ceremonies I have ever beheld.
I love their bravery in having a ceremony that left the well-trodden path of "this is the way it is supposed to be done". I love that they sprinkled symbols and sentiment the whole way through. I love that all the guests spoke blessings during the ceremony. I love that to finish proceedings, guests formed a tunnel of love, which Rowena and David walked through and came out at the other end as soul mates, kindred spirits, best friends and now husband and wife! It was amazing!
I will stop gushing now...here are a few photos from their day...” Natsky (photographer)

Oceana created a deeply meaningful ceremony for us. It was very special to be able to co-create it with her, so that we could draw on her wisdom and experience, while also bringing our own ideas forward.
She cares about who we are as a couple, and incorporated this personal touch into the ceremony in beautiful ways. One of the biggest gifts that she brings is her presence on the day. She gives of herself wholeheartedly, and provides a space for us to feel held. This takes out all of the stress, which allowed us to focus on what was important - each other and our union.
