Vivienne was fantastic and made the whole process so easy. Before we started, we didn’t know much about what to include a ceremony but she really helped us make the ceremony personal. A large number of our guests commented on how much they loved personal touches to the ceremony and how we included so much of our family. Vivienne helped us achieve that! We are so grateful for her help through the process. With sincere thanks, Laura and Dan
Vivienne made everything so easy for us from planning to the special day, She was very kind and sweet to us and made us feel very comfortable every step of the way. She planned a beautiful ceremony for everyone present and included those that weren’t with us because of the pandemic and even acknowledge them during the ceremony. We are both very grateful to Vivienne for making our day so special.

"Vivienne looked after our wedding from the beginning right to the end. Every small detail was covered. This was of great assistance to us and ensured that the day was a huge success. Vivienne’s grace and charm captured the small number of guests, leaving the bride and groom just to enjoy the day. Our day would not have been the same without Vivienne. Thank you!"
"Viv is a wonderful and very special person. She helped us from the first message we sent, always sweet and friendly. She was responsible for making our dream come true. You do an excellent job! Thank you ❤️❤️"
"We were very happy that we chose Viv as our celebrant. She was very friendly, helpful, relaxed and professional. Viv helped us in our preparations and the plan for the day, as well as following up when needed. On the day we couldn't have been happier. Viv was funny, personal, appropriate and prepared. She was an integral part of the day and the ceremony was fun and relaxed. What I especially liked is that she didn't try to shine any limelight on herself. I would highly recommend Viv as a celebrant. As I said we couldn't have been happier"
Vivienne Bates is an extremely professional and loving Marriage Celebrant to work with. She knows what she is doing and she is very accommodating which was a breath of fresh air as it took the stress and worry out of the ceremony preparation. She will also ensure everything is packaged up nicely for you after the ceremony in a beautiful white folder to keep forever (which was the cherry on top). Vivienne helped to make our wedding day a day that no one will forget. It was truly a stunning ceremony with so much love in the air and we couldn't have made it so perfect without all her help. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.
Vivienne conducted our wedding outside at Broadbeach in September 2019. She was a pleasure to work with. She was attentive, available to ask for questions and suggestions and very flexible. We had a small elopement with 12 people outside on the beach and Vivienne recommended the perfect place for us to hold the ceremony. We wanted a close friend of ours to conduct most of the ceremony except for the essential legal aspects that Vivienne had to say as the celebrant. Vivienne was very willing to allow our friend to do all the parts that we wanted and coordinated the ceremony beautifully with him. We highly recommend her as a celebrant.Thank you!
