This is my happiest page, the list of couples I have had the pleasure in meeting is growing all the time and it would be great if I could add your names to it.

See what my previous clients have to say, then come and talk about your wedding. I'll show you samples of Celebrant Services in Melbourne that I have written and delivered. Yours will be a great service, people will talk about it for years, for the right reasons.

They will laugh and cry. You, your family and friends will be heartened and uplifted. The wedding ceremonies I perform in Melbourne are cost effective. I am constantly learning new ways to make your day even better. Ongoing professional development is a fundamental part of being a celebrant, and each year I extend myself further, constantly learning and adapting so that I can be the best celebrant for you. 

In the meantime, here are just a few of the testimonials I have received.

Dear Ernest,

Thank you so much for the truly beautiful service you conducted for our wedding - it was everything we hoped it would be and more!

Your guidance and personal touch throughout the whole process was just wonderful and the way you helped us laugh and relax was brilliant! 

Jane's father was especially touched by the beautiful words you spoke for his father of the bride moment and passes on his appreciation also.

Thank you so much Ernest, neither of us will ever forget our special day and the vows we made to each other.

Warmest Regards.

Ernest performed our wedding in November 2012. It was wonderful and memorable ceremony. He was most helpful in assisting us with our ceremony wording as well as putting together our wedding program for our guests

He followed by giving us a beautifully presented memento of the ceremony in the album he used to deliver it, and we will always treasure the memory.

Thank you Ernest, for making our day special, marrying us as well as assisting us with the lead-up to our big day with all the necessary paperwork.

On behalf of my husband, Charles, we would like to thank Ernest for a beautiful wedding ceremony he conducted for us in November 2012. He is very detailed and efficient, and it has been a delight talking to him. His professionalism made our wedding preparation an enjoyable exercise because he was always willing to offer suggestions and encouragement that made us feel at ease.

His ceremony presentation was well received by our guests as he was able to make everyone in the wedding comfortable. I recommend Ernest's service to couples out there who intend to get married. Ernest Rigby is a wonderful marriage celebrant!!!"

Thank you again for such wonderful service. It was genuine, elegant and romantic. We heard so many nice comments about your service from the guests and we are definitely going to recommend you to everyone! We both feel that you were more than a celebrant to us. 

I could still remember meeting you for the first time more than a year ago just a day after Clark's proposal. You have been extremely helpful in enabling us to understand all the procedures, and we really appreciate your advice and prompt communication. 

We are really lucky to have found you to celebrate our very special day at Montsalvat with us!

Dear Ernest

Thanks a million for your nice service. It was wonderful.

I was really stressed and I didn't think I could manage everything.

You were very calm and made me feel more comfortable even when we had to change the place of wedding you were OK.

It was a great day for Hamed and me but you managed to make it greater. My father read the wedding script 100 times and he said you write wonderful words, which are facts of life. They took some of the booklets to Iran to show to my other family members.

Thanks again.
