Christa Lizamore

Gauteng

As a vibrant young woman, I love to share in and add value, to the happiest day in people’s lives – your wedding day. At my best, I strive to make the ceremony, YOUR ceremony, one of personal meaning and beautiful memories. Always ensuring that everything from the registration to the legalities and ceremony are taken care of, so that you can focus on YOUR special day. I would be honoured to be a part of your wedding day and meet with you, to discuss the finer details of your special day.

nsuring that this day, is everything you and your fiancé, have ever dreamed of.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Christa do our Wedding Ceremony.

From the beginning she made us feel very comfortable and shared happy thoughts and stories with us. She is down to earth and very easy to work with, I would recommend her to anyone.

The ceremony went smoothly and relaxed and her words were as we discussed in the beginning and very beautiful.

We liked her so much that we invited her and her partner to stay for the reception and share the rest of our happy day with us.

Thank you very much again for everything!

Graeme Reid

Gauteng and Eastern Cape

 

Graeme is a natural outgoing and gregarious person. He spent many years in corporate life but has now spent as many running his own businesses in which his mantra has always been about the personal growth of those around him.

He maintains that one day he will have to mature and “grow up” but in the interim he will continue to pursue his passion for business, (older) motorcycles and cars. He is an experienced speaker and presenter that always looks to add value to the event.

What a great choice we made to have Graeme as our wedding officer. He delivered a relaxed, personal and completely tailor-made experience to our day. From the start there was enthusiasm and genuine involvement as if it was his own wedding!! With advice and encouragement along the way. Thank you Graeme for making the ceremony, the most important part of the day, absolutely magical.

Simone de Villiers

Gauteng

I love people, I love service and I always go the extra mile to ensure your wedding is everything and more you have dreamed of.

I have been told I have a bubbly personality. That, tied with humour and professionalism, adds value to any wedding ceremony.

We loved her passion and friendly nature and putting our nerves at ease standing with her. We received so many compliments on what an amazing ceremony it was and that is all because of Simone! Guests thought she was fantastic and the way she delivered her message of Love on the day. Her passion could be felt!

Thank you so much for such excellent service and taking care of us on our special day.

Tracey Bosch

Gauteng

I am an Omnist (I recognise and respect all religions). My religion is LOVE, which I believe everything should be based on and what all religions ultimately teach. 

By trade, I am a Skills Development Facilitator and teach others how to empower themselves by firstly, how to have a relationship with oneself. We teach others how to treat us by how we treat ourselves. 

I believe very strongly in that the ripple effect of our thoughts, intentions and actions which create our footprints in this world. By serving this belief with integrity, the highest order of truth, we live our religions with full awareness. This is the reason for becoming a marriage officer. My passion of being the person to unite two people on this sacred level and share in the excitement of commitment, kindness and love is my joy.

Tracey is just a breath of fresh air and made our day super special! The way that she believes in love is just astonishing! Would not change anything if we had a redo!

Thanks so much for everything…again

Lara Thomas

Western Cape

Writer, marriage officer, photographer and attorney, Lara was born in Nelspruit, grew up in Johannesburg and now lives in Cape Town. A music-loving falafel-eating podcast-binging sea-swimming mountain-hiking kind-of-person, Lara crafts unique wedding ceremonies, drawing on the library of quotes she has collected since she was a young girl. 1

A few of her favourites? The Invitation (Oriah Mountain Dreamer); The Velveteen Rabbit (Margery Williams Bianco); Ask Me (William Stafford); The Secret (Denise Levertov); and anything by Cheryl Strayed or Elizabeth Gilbert. Lara weaves these words, along with her own, into heart-felt ceremonies that celebrate each couple’s love, connection and story.
