What couples think about my ceremonies ...

These are unsolicited comments from some of the wonderful couples whose weddings I have done.

Dear Dion

We want to say thank you so very much to you for the beautiful ceremony! It really was so special! Our guests remarked on how appropriate and beautiful the words were. Even my uncle (who is a Presbyterian minister) thought it special and beautiful - a true civil ceremony based on love and commitment without a reference to God.

So thank you very much for being part of our beautiful day - and for making it extra special with your beautiful ceremony.

Many many thanks to you for making our day beautiful!

With much love,
Peter and Caron x

Dear Dion,

A most heartfelt thank you for the beautiful words and the warmth you provided during our wedding celebration. It was a very emotional moment for all of us and I don't think there was a dry eye! Your kindness and thoughtfulness touched our hearts, and you made it very special for us.

With warm regards,
Jamie and Patricia

Hello Dion!!!

We just wanted to thank you so very much for making our wedding so amazing! Everyone thought you were amazing... I need to get some business cards from you! Lol!

I really cannot believe how you were, Kevin said you made him feel so comfortable and if Kev and I got married a thousand times, you will always be the chosen one! Maybe we can do a renewal of vows ! Haha.

Also, one of my friends there loved you so much she is getting her friend to get you as the minister, so I will send her the details now.

Hope to see you soon Mr. Wonderful Minister!
Ciao
Kelly

Hi Dion

A great big Thank you for making our day special and meaningful. The ceremony was perfect and we have had lots of comments that it was the best ceremony people have been to - not too long and full of irrelevant stuff.

Once again, Thank You.
Joanna and David

Hope you are well. We came back to cold Norway two days ago, with lots of great memories not only from our wedding day but our whole stay. From the deepest of our hearts: Thank you for being the best priest that we could have imagined and contributing significantly to making our day just as we wanted.

All the best from
Siv, Cornelia & Christian

Dear Rev Dion,

Thank you for a wonderful ceremony... you made it absolutely perfect!!

We thought that our wedding was enchanting all around and we will never forget that special moment. It's a perfect beginning for our new life together. You made our ceremony very personal, intimate and fun, a sweet, romantic experience!

Even before the ceremony, you have created a calming presence for us. We were blessed to have you perform our ceremony. The entire ceremony was filled with love and it was absolutely unforgettable.

Hi there Dion,

Mark and I cannot thank you enough for the magnificent ceremony you provided for us on Saturday evening. It is exactly what we were hoping for and reflected perfectly how Mark and I regard our union.

We were amazed at the difference between hearing the words of the ceremony when meeting you in Tokai, and then at the event on the day - huge difference in atmosphere and emotion - it was magical!

Thank you so much for guiding us and keeping us calm through the experience. Mark and I are very satisfied with our choice of marriage officer for our wedding, and we will not hesitate to recommend your services to others.

Warmest regards,
Mark & Leilani Mitchell

Hi Dion,

Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Your ceremony was absolutely perfect. How did you possibly know all that about Phil and me?
My mom asked me afterwards why I had never mentioned you, and when I told her we had only recently met she said it seemed as if you knew me better than she did!

Once again thank you for making our wedding day so very special!

Hello Rev.Dion,

I would like to thank you so much for conducting our marriage ceremony on Feb12 at 4pm.. I have to say that it exceeded our expectations in that it was so much fun and relaxed.

It was exactly the kind of day that we had hoped for. The people, place, the weather and the ambiance was just as we had wished for. Could not have wanted more from our marriage ceremony day. It was amazingly delightful.

Thank you again, and we would definitely recommend you and your services.

All the best wishes and keep doing what you are doing please.

Happily,
Silvana and Sebastian (Cape Town)
