Michaela’s attention to detail is second to none. She actually contacts the Celebrant prior to the wedding day to gain a clear understanding of the unique inclusions of the ceremony. By understanding the thought and effort the couple and Celebrant put in to designing the ceremony, Michaela is able to deliver a fantastic film that includes the parts of the day that are most significant to the couple. On the day she is bubbly, helpful and enthusiastic. I have no hesitation in recommending Your Wedding Story. Cara Hodge – Brisbane City Celebrants.
