We would just like to say a massive thank you to Karen (our wedding coordinator), Carla (hair and make up artist), Mish (the photographer) and Brian (our celebrant) for making our special day totally relaxed and stress free. We had the most amazing day from start to finish.
Hair and make up was just how I wanted it to be. The photos were so natural and captured the day perfectly. The ceremony was lovely and all of our guests complimented on it being such a special service.
The whole process was so easy and stopped me from turning into a bridezilla!!!
Thank you so much again!!!

Both myself and Gareth wanted to say thank you for everything you done for us.
I myself can say that the hair and make up lady (Carla) was absolutely brilliant, a pleasure to have in our room, helpful (slight dress issue) and patient with a toddler, the driver never batted an eyelid when we were fashionably late, lol...
The photographer took some stunning photos (we had a quick look at a couple on the camera) and Vicky did a brilliant job of pulling everything together as we wanted and getting everyone where they needed to be.

I want to express our appreciation for everything. Our wedding yesterday couldn’t have been more perfect. Brent was pleasantly surprised. He had no idea it would be so wonderful. Josh, Di, Troy and Vicki were wonderful! After the wedding we went to Shangri la for drinks, with that amazing view and ran into a group of older retired people who made such a fuss over us! Then we had dinner at Aria on the harbour. It was a perfect day, thanks so much!!

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say a massive thank you to you and the girls for such a wonderful fantastic wedding day. Clive, Amy and I had an amazing day and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Amy especially enjoyed having her hair and make up done and we both looked amazing. The photos Leesa sent to my email address were so stunning and we can't wait to receive the DVD to view the rest. The wedding cake was so scrumptious. We managed to make it last up until Friday.. Such a huge cake too. I cannot recommend you girls highly enough. The Chapel was a truly magical place. It was so beautiful. Our friends and family love the photos and can't believe we married in the Rainforest.
So once again THANK YOU for everything that you did and may you continue to enjoy doing your fantastic job.
Kind Regards, The new Mr and Mrs Waller :-)

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you so much for all that you did in making our wedding such a perfect day. Ellis and I were actually quite apprehensive organising everything from interstate but everything went so well that we were over the moon. Everybody involved was so relaxed, friendly and helpful that it suited us down to the ground. The photos were lovely and as Ellis’s family are all overseas, of great importance to us, and Suzi did a fantastic job with my hair and makeup and I was thrilled.
I have told everyone what a fantastic job your company did and please do not hesitate to use us as a recommendation for any future clients.
Once again, thank you.

Everybody was so friendly and fantastic - the day ran so smoothly. Plus we love our photos with loads of great comments coming from all over the world from our friends and family. Our families were great about the surprise wedding, particularly mine who said it showed off our personalities!! The Daintree provided an excellent honeymoon for us also.
To think all of it happened from one very simple enquiry email is awesome!
Thank you so much again and please pass on our massive thanks to your superb team!

David & I wish to thank you for making our wedding on Valentines Day the most amazing stressless day ever.
Your professionalism to every detail was just perfect. The weather, the location, even the colour of the water was just perfect. My bouquet was as I pictured it would be, so a big thank you to the florist, Michelle. The service was exactly as we wanted it to be and Jim, our Celebrant was wonderful. (Thank you for the special poem Jim it really touched us). And a huge thank you to Ray for capturing all our special moments over & above his requirements on the day.
David & I would be honoured to share our photos & our thoughts of our day on your website.

14th February 2011, Gold Coast Beach
It's a little scary planning a wedding from 8000 miles away, so I was relieved to be able to turn it all over to you. I have to admit, I was a little worried, as I wouldn't be able to even see the location until a day or two before the ceremony.
Well, Peter and I couldn't have been happier with our Gold Coast wedding. The day was perfect in every respect. The venue on Main Beach was beautiful and convenient, and the weather was fantastic. It's clear that you and your people have this down to a science. Everyone involved was professional, friendly, and great at their jobs. As coordinator, you organized it all and communicated with us clearly and efficiently.
Our officiant made the ceremony just what we wanted - personal, sweet and meaningful, with a little humor thrown in. The young lady who came in to do my hair and makeup was a delight. She kept me calm and positive, and she made me feel confident and ready to face the day. I was very happy with her work. The harpist played beautifully throughout the ceremony. Our driver was friendly and got us just where we needed to be. The lovely bouquet was exactly what I wanted - I couldn't believe how full and heavy it was, and it lasted through our two week honeymoon. The chocolate mud cake was delicious. Our photographer did an amazing job on the photos; he was easy to work with and he really went above and beyond.
Everything was stress-free and it all ran like clockwork. We would like to say a great big 'thank you' to you and all the other people who made our day so completely special.
I've had several people tell me it was the nicest wedding they've ever attended. My mother is still over the moon about it. As for the two of us, we couldn't imagine having a better or happier experience. For anyone considering using your services, I can heartily say: do it! You will not be disappointed.
Thank you and all the best,

Dear Michelle & the Australian Dream Weddings Team,
We just wanted to write you a little note to say to thank you for helping us make our special day a reality. We really appreciated how promptly you addressed all of our questions and how easy you made it for us to arrange our wedding away.
We cannot possibly sing enough praise for Dee and Kelly! They were both nothing short of amazing! In the days leading up to the wedding Dee contacted us, and her genuine concern and interest in our day was evident from our first conversation. She was so enthusiastic and kind-hearted, she helped to put us at ease straight away. Dee helped us with everything including the little touches that made our day ours.
On the wedding day Dee and Kelly were like fairy godmothers (sisters I should say!) from helping me to get ready, reassuring me, helping me walk with my dress and veil, ensuring our music was right, bringing us both champagne and adjusting my veil to make sure it was perfect for all of our photos. Kelly really went above and beyond to help me before the ceremony and after at the photo shoot too. She was so patient, encouraging and supportive.
Peter (minister), Fiona (photographer) and Harry (videographer) were also really terrific! They were so professional and did everything they said they would. We are really happy with all of our beautiful photos and our dvd.
Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day everything we had hoped it would be!!

We want to say a big THANK YOU for everything you did for us to make our special day just that, special. You were so attentive at replying to my emails and making me feel at ease during the planning of the wedding. The day itself was amazing, it all went so smoothly and everyone was so nice and helpful. To Veronique and Laura for making all our hair and make up so beautiful, I especially loved my hair, to Greg, the limo driver, for helping me out of the car in my dress!!
To Vicki, for making sure everything went smoothly on the day, to Peter, the cameraman for making us such a beautiful DVD of not only our wedding day but of the great sights of Sydney, to Di, the photographer who put us at ease and took amazing shots of us with the Sydney Harbour background, and then making us a superb coffee-table photo album, which we received yesterday and I have taken into work today and everyone LOVES it!, and to Brian, the Minister, for giving us the lovely ceremony we hoped for.
We would never have had the wedding in Sydney we had dreamed of if it hadn't been for Australia Dream Weddings. I feel quite sad that its all over and I won't look forward to opening my emails to see if I have a reply from you, or what we had to organise next! I've found myself a new project - decorating! Its not as much fun though and you don't get to look quite so glamorous - haha!
Thank you and please feel free to use some of our shots for your website!

I wanted to express our warmest thank you to you and your colleagues for making our wedding day such a wonderful day. It is a great trust to allow someone unknown to take care of the organization of such a special day and both Darryl and I have to say that we are so very happy with the outcome.
From the many emails we exchanged with the patient answering of all my many questions, to the flowers you arranged which were just perfect and the cake which was very simple and classic (exactly how I wanted), and the way you just appear enough to support and not intrude and to Suzi the make up and hair stylist, who made me up to be the most stunning bride that I could be and who helped to settle nerves with her friendly easy going manner, to the limo driver and on to the meals and staff at the reception who were attentive and helpful and the photographer who put me straight at ease.
Everyone was fantastic and all helped to make this special day so great. Please extend our thanks to all involved Michelle and of course to Jim our Celebrant who was so thoughtful.
Michelle, If you would like to use this on your website as a testimonial, you are welcome to.

Please pass on a huge thank you to everyone else involved. Suzie was fantastic for my hair and make up, she did an awesome job, Sue is a great photographer, we were very impressed with the quality of the photos and so are our family and friends, we also were very happy with Simon's video.

Just a friendly note to thank you, Kaye, Peter, Leesa, Amanda and Noel for making our day so special! Honestly the day was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more! We are so incredibly happy we decided to elope and use Aussie Dream Weddings!
The venue was amazing; the ceremony perfect! And the photos and video turned out better than we both could have imagined - we are just so pleased! - they really captured the day and the moment! We are looking forward to sharing them both with our families.
So thank you again! We couldn't be happier!

They are a great bunch of people, very friendly and professional and we would definitely recommend your company to anyone wanting to get married in Australia.

Hi there Michelle,
This is just a quick email to say what a great job you did in the organization of Keryn and Nathan’s wedding on 11 May. Your attention to detail was most appreciated, Keryn looked fantastic and we enjoyed the services provided by a number of New Zealanders now enjoying life in Aus. I was amazed with not only the quality of the photos but Sue’s delivery of them to us the next day so please pass on my appreciation. Fabulous service. Best wishes for the success of your business in the future.

I just wanted to thank you very much for organising our wedding at the Sydney Opera House on 5th April 2007. You and your company made the day just perfect along with the weather. Please say a big thank you to Veronique for doing my hair and makeup perfectly and to Dianne and Patrick for the photos and video, they all came out better than I had hoped and were delivered to the hotel so quickly especially as it was Easter. They also may it a fun experience. It was a very stress-free experience from the first contact with you to the end of our wedding day.

May I take this opportunity to thank everyone at Australian Dream Weddings for all their help. All the people we have had contact with for the wedding, were absolutely fantastic, really friendly and put us all at ease. If anyone I know wants to get married abroad, I would definitely recommend Australian Dream Weddings. The Wedding was a Dream. We were chuffed to bits with the photos (I currently have a selection as my screen saver at work so I remember what a fantastic day I had), video, flowers, absolutely everything.
Thanks and Kind Regards,
Lindsay and Richard, Tyne and Wear, England

Just a quick note to thank you and Vicki for organising our wedding. We had an absolute ball and our guests are still talking about how good it was. The cake was a perfect match for our colours (and tasted pretty good too!!). We didn't have to worry about a thing - before the wedding you organised everything and on the day Vicki did a fantastic job. For us it was a stress-free hassle-free day - just as we had hoped and Brian (our minister) was also a hit with us and the guests.
All in all, it was a day we'll remember forever. Much appreciated.
Michelle and Jamie, Western Australia

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a HUGE thank you for arranging our wedding in the Botanical Gardens, Sydney on 5th January. The day was perfect, everything we had hoped it would be and more! The hair and make up ladies were brilliant, and I was really pleased with how they made me look. The service was very relaxed and informal, exactly as we wanted it, and the celebrant was great. And we had perfect weather, so really, we couldn't have asked for anything more!
Thanks once again for making our day so special, and one we will always remember.
Lindsey and Kevin, England

We really can't speak highly enough of Australia Dream Weddings. When we decided to travel to Australia to get married we were slightly concerned about organising it so far away and thought that it may be very complicated indeed. It turned out to be the complete opposite. Right from the start you were extremely helpful and friendly and put all our worries to rest. You organised everything perfectly and always kept us informed of every step.
We appreciate that when we contacted you by e-mail we always had a reply the next day. Everything we asked for was put in place and the wedding day itself was everything we had hoped it would be. The setting and venue were incredible and we have some wonderful photos from your photographer. Everyone we dealt with from the early stages through to the ceremony itself were always really friendly and very professional. I can't recommend you highly enough.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else.

Hi Michelle from Washington, Georgia, USA,
Julie and were just looking at the pictures on your website of our Svanen Tall Ship wedding in December of 1998. We were reminded of what a wonderful experience it was, and we will always cherish the memories you helped create for us. Thanks again, and even though it has been over 7 years since we were married, it feels like it was just yesterday. We highly encourage anyone interested in an Australian Wedding to contact you for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will last forever.
Scott and Julie, Washington, USA

We would just like to thank you for the fantastic wedding you arranged for us. It was everything we wanted it to be. Simple and no stress that involved the kids. Sue, the photographer was great. The photos were wonderful, she did a brilliant job, as did Cliff with the video. The flowers matched perfectly and the extra thought of lemonade for the kids to toast with was appreciated and something we hadn't of thought of.
What you do is a fantastic service and we would recommend this to anyone wanted a well organised stress free wedding.
Thank you all again,
Sam and Conrad, Tasmania, Australia
15th June 2006, Gold Coast Beach
I'd like to thank you for organising our wedding day. It turned out to be the most fabulous day. Alera, our coordinator was most helpful, the flowers were gorgeous, Sylvia did a fantastic job with my hair and makeup and Peter, the Minister was lovely.

Once again thank you for your professionalism.
Linda and Jason, Sydney, Australia

At last we have time to sit down since we have been home to say a HUGE THANK YOU for a fantastic wedding. From our first communication everything organized by yourself and team has been first class! I can honestly say I felt like a princess after I had been 'made up' by your fantastic make up and hairdresser artist, it was definitely well worth paying for and to receive the photos and video the day after the wedding was fabulous. When we watched it we both cried!!! The music put on was so appropriate and the whole day a fantastic one.
Thank you again and please thank every one in your team for all their help!!
Caroline and John, Devon, England

After a long journey, we are home "safe and sound", but how we would like to be there again!
I want to say that we enjoyed a lot our "downunder" wedding. It was exactly what we were looking for. You are great! We received our wedding photos so fast and they are so beautiful. As promised I have attached some photos. Please feel free to use them on your website and as testimonials.
Thanks a lot and all the best.

I just wanted to thank you dearly for making our wedding a day that we will never forget. Everything was perfect. The people I met from your company were extremely friendly and helpful.
What amazed me was that all I did was sit back and relax. If I had to organise the wedding myself, I would have been a mess by the wedding day and feel I would not have enjoyed the day at all.
We cannot express enough how much we are grateful to you and everyone at Australian Dream Weddings. I have attached photos of us on our special day to show you our great big smiles.
Thank you once again,
Melanie and Michael, Queensland, Australia

I just wanted to send you an email to say that our wedding was wonderful, everything was perfect and the day went as smooth as silk and I just wanted to let you know that Vicki was a fantastic co-ordinator, she was great and without her we would have been in a terrible mess. Veronique, the hairdresser and Dianne, the photographer were brilliant and the day wouldn't have gone as well without them there.
I wanted to let you know, before we fly off to Brisbane, what a wonderful day we had and that everything was better than I could ever have anticipated. Please tell Vicki and Dianne and Veronique a BIG THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making our day so special. Regards from Sydney and I'll email you again from work when we get home at the end of January.

Where do we begin!?!
Since our first enquiry back in May 2005 and countless emails thereafter....you have been an inspiration to us. Your endless patience and help are a credit to you and all who work with you.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special. I know we were a pain with all of our questions, but hell....what a day!! What memories. We were so overwhelmed to finally meet you and deeply honoured that you were able to attend our wedding. The only sadness is that we no longer communicate via email. We feel we have lost a friend. But we will make sure to keep in touch and will most definately recommend your services. If you ever need a place to stay in England, give us a bell!
Lots of love,

We got back on Saturday and are now back at work. We are still both suffering from the jetlag and wished we were back in Australia. Australia is a lovely country and we would love to live there.
We have showed everyone our photos and they think they are lovely. John did a great job. My hair and makeup on the day was even better than the trials I got back home in Britain. The hair and makeup artist was excellent and did my hair and put on my tiara just the way I wanted it.
Thank you again for the excellent photos, plus the DVD's are wonderful as well. Everyone thought they were lovely and I can't remember how many times I've watched the DVD.
I’ve attached photos of the day from our guests digital cameras which you are welcome to use on your website.
Thank you again.

Alera was fantastic. She made sure every single detail was attended to and would go out of her way for everything. You have a real gem there.
I was very happy with the way Silvia did my hair and make up. What I asked for is what I got. Nicola was great - she made us feel very at ease during the photography session and the photos are wonderful.

We spoke with Mark and Lisa about two hours after the wedding, they were so thrilled with the way everything went. They told us you had read the message to them, which made it a little bit special seeing how her mum and dad could not be with them on the day nor could they find any way of sending a message themselves. So we are all very grateful for the way you have helped us, and as I said in my earliest email, you really do make weddings into "Dream Weddings" we will never forget the way you helped us and if I can be of any help to you please feel free to get in touch again.
My very kindest regards,

As we've just about recovered from our jet-lag, Darren and I would like to say a few thank-you's to you and your colleagues for making our wedding absolutely fantastic.
First of all we'd like you to pass on our huge thanks to Sonja for making the day run so smoothly, and for being prepared for every problem before it even happened! We think everyone should have a Sonja to organise their wedding day (and probably their life too!)
We'd also like to thank Pastor Peter for making us both feel so comfortable and relaxed on a potentially rather stressful day! The service was exactly what we wanted and everyone commented on how lovely and friendly Peter was. Peter even let our 3-year old nephew ring the bell at St. Mary's - which made his day!
The other wonderful people at Port Douglas also need many thanks; my make-up and hair dressing lady (Silvia) who performed wonders with my hair, and made me look totally glamorous, and of course the photographer who took so many beautiful pictures and captured the day that we remember - even with the cameras of some of our guests!
Last, but by no means least, we have to thank you and all at Australian Dream Weddings for organising the best, most relaxed and well planned wedding we could ever have hoped for! Special mentions must go to the gorgeous orchids and the excellent cake - especially the bride and groom decoration which got lots of laughs!
So, thank you very much for a truly memorable day, and we will be recommending you to all our un-married friends!
Suzanne and Darren, Berkshire, England

Please pass on our special thanks to Natasha for co-ordinating the day, our driver Tibby, who was a great guy, and Brian the Minister for making the service feel so special and personal. Obviously, our thanks also go to Dianne (photographer) and a big thanks to Belinda, the Harpist whos' music transformed the day.

Just a quick message to say thanks very much for all the effort that you and your team put in for our wedding in the Botanical Gardens. As you probably realised we were slightly apprehensive about arranging our wedding over the internet. We obviously had nothing to worry about.....!!! Natasha was great and very helpful. Alan was a great bloke who made us both feel very special and Di was very easy going and relaxed and made us feel the same.
All in all it was a great day that we will remember for the rest of our lives. The room that was provided at the restaurant was unbelievable. It was better than we could have ever hoped for and the food was fantastic. We were made to feel very special.

Dave and I would like to thank you so very much for planning our beautiful wedding at the Rainforest Chapel in Cairns. Everything turned out perfect and the setting was just beautiful. We were so pleased with everyone involved in our big day and amazed at their genuine enthusiasm for making everything perfect for us. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people.
The hair and makeup artist was very sweet and did a wonderful job, our driver was very nice and even showed us some points of interest along the way, the photogrpaher was great and took some beautiful pictures, the videographer made an absolutely amazing video and, of course, Wayne the Celebrant and Sonja the coordinator were two of the nicest people we've ever met!
We'll never be able to thank you and everyone involved enough for making the most important day of our lives absoutley perfect! I hope that you will forward our thanks to everyone involved.

We received our Fairytale Wedding Storybook today via Federal Express and we are sooooooooooo pleased with the photos and the Storybook! We're VERY impressed with the quality and the images that were captured. It so happens the delay in customs meant our album arrived on our two month anniversary today, which makes the day even more special!
We cannot say enough what an extraordinary day and event you and your team made happen. Our wedding exceeded our expectations and the Storybook only adds proof that you deliver more than one can even imagine! There aren't enough wonderful things we could say about Australian Dream Weddings!
Thank you again,

Just a note to say Thank you for organising such a wonderful day for us - it was perfect. We received the photo's this morning and they are really good. Could you please pass on our thanks to your coordinator, Summer as she was very helpful.
Thanks again for all your help, and making our day so special.

Both Sally and myself would like to thank you very much for a Wonderful Wedding!
We had a great time and everything actually went beyond our expectations
Thank you so much for making it all so easy for us so as all we had to worry about was having a good time! Your coordinator, Sonia was magnificent and her help was invaluable in making everything stress free and smooth. The limo driver was great - I think she did far more that she was paid to do as she halped Sally quite a bit! I am not sure what we were expecting with the photo album and video shoot but both went far beyond our expectations and absolutely blew us away.
Overall we will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone we know and would like to thank you for making our day so wonderful. Please pass this on to all the people that contributed and thank them from us.
Thank you to all concerned,
Sally and Dario, Australlia

We just wanted to send you a note to thank you for all your wonderful work. Our wedding was so perfect and we appreciate all the planning and coordination
Please tell Natasha how much I appreciated her help! I loved the way she did my hair!! Also the Marriage Celebrant was terrific! We were very pleased with the pictures but we were especially delighted with the video! It was so beautifully done, so professional and so romantic! It brought tears to our eyes; it highly exceeded our expectations!!! I would really like to send a personal note to the videographer. Could you give me his name address and when you get a chance.
Thanks again for everything!! If given the opportunity, we would highly recommend your company.

Andy and I got married on March 14, 2003 in the Botanical Gardens.
I want to take this time to tell you what a wonderful job your company did for our wedding. Everything turned out perfect !!! We were extremely impressed with the location, the creativity of both the photographer and the videographer. Our celebrant was great too. He made us feel very comfortable and even made a few jokes during the ceremony, which was a nice touch. It helped relax the bride and groom. And I can't forget about Natasha. She was wonderful !!! She was so sweet and so well organized. It was a pleasure to work with her. She made sure everything went according to plan. I also couldn't believe how quickly we had our video, photos, and best of all the negatives.
I admit, I was a little skeptical planning my wedding over the Internet but we had such a wonderful experience. I will recommend Australian Dream Weddings to anyone. And Michelle, thank you for always answering my questions and accommodating all of my requests. Andrew and I had a perfect wedding thanks to you and your staff. We can't wait for our anniversary so we can come back and visit beautiful Sydney again.

Well, we are back in the UK after our marriage at the Rainforest Chapel in Cairns.
I just wanted to thank you very much for all the help and patience you gave us during the planning of our wedding. When booking onf the internet is is difficult to know exactly what you will be getting, but the Rainforest Chapel was absolutely beautiful - better than we could have imagined and the flowers were gorgeous.
Everything went off without a hitch and the day was everything we had ever dreamed of.

This is just a short note to say a big thank you for organising our wedding, and making it such a memorable day for Mark, myself and our families. The whole day was perfect and everything went as planned. Please can you thank our coordinator, Natasha on our behalf, as she did an excellent job helping us on the day. And also many thanks to Veronique for doing such a brilliant job on my hair and makeup! The photographs and video are of outstanding quality and thanks for delivering them so quickly to us.
Thanks again for all of your hard work and help - we will never forget our special day!

Yvonne and myself wish to thank yourself and your team for making our Silver Wedding Anniversary and renewal of our wedding vows an occasion that we shall never forget. The photographs were outstanding and even the ones taken with our own camera have turned out great!
We both enjoyed our cocktails at the Hyatt hotel and the service and food at Doyles restaurant were superb. To finish off the day we had drinks in the lounge of our hotel, where the harpist who was playing discovered it was our Silver wedding and played some music especially for us - she even let us try out her harp (very unsuccessfully!)
In our present times it is sad that excellent service is becoming increasingly rare and mediocrity is the norm. However your professionalism and that of Veronique (hair and makeup), Dianne (the photographer) and Reverend Cole was exemplary and could you please pass on our best wishes to them.
This has been the holiday of a lifetime for both of us, but with your help it made the experience even better and for that, we thank you.

I have been meaning to contact you for sometime now to say thank you very much for organising our wedding on 1 July 2002 but things have been so hectic since we got back!
We would like to say a special thanks to Summer (your coordinator), and Reverend Leon for making us feel at ease on the day and making our day so special. We would also be grateful if you could thank the photographer, Sue who was absolutely fantastic (I'm so glad that I listended to your advice and booked professional photography). Our families loved the photos!
If I hear of anyone else wanting to get married in Australia I won't hesitate to recommend that they contact you.
Once again, thanks very much.

We just wanted to thank you for making our big day go so well. We had a fantastic time and everything went like clockwork. The flowers and car (Classic Bentley) were perfect and we are really pleased with the photos and video. Please pass on our thanks to them both and also to Grant, the Minister.

Thank you for all of your fantastic help organising our wedding in April!
Please pass on our thanks to your coordinator, Summer as she was superb. As well, thanks to Angie (hair and makeup), Leon (our Minister) and Sue (the photographer). Without all of your help our day would not have been nearly as perfect or special.

We wanted to contact you to thank you for our big day. It truly was a memorable occassion and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mary has been recommending you to all the unmarried couples we know - and even some married ones to renew their vows....she will do anything for another holiday in Aus!!
Seriously though, you really made our day. It was stress free and you arranged every last detail without fuss. Please send our thanks and regards to Dianne (photographer), Pat (video) and Veronique (hair and makeup). The photos are perfect - we hope the camera still works! Lots of our friends have commented on how good and original the photos are. Thanks to Pat for the video - how did he manage to make the two of us look so interesting?! We didn't know what he was going to do and we were really pleased with the result. The video captures everything. It is great for us to remember the day and our families now understand why we wanted to run off to Sydney!! Even Mary's Mum has stopped asking us why we didn't want a priest to marry us in a church in Birmingham! And Pat, the music is fab...
So thanks again and if you are ever in England let us know. It would be great to see you and buy you a large pint!

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our wedding.
Thank you for organising everything so beautifully for us - we had a great time. The ship was wonderful and having the wedding ceremony on board was beyond our expectations. Please convey our thanks ato our photographer and videographer. They managed to put two photo-phobic people at ease. I'm sure our families will enjoy the finished products.
All good wishes and thank you once again,

We are very lucky to do the wedding with Australian Dream Weddings, and if my friends wish to have a wedding overseas, I will recommend you.
Thank you for your good work, and we also thank your Japanese staff, Kim san and Sachi san, for the help on the wedding.

Hello Michelle and to All at Australian Dream Weddings!
So much has happened since Reuben and I said our vows in the beautiful manor gardens in Sydney. We have so much fun remembering that special day.
Reuben and I have been discussing plans for our 1st year anniversary, and have decided to stay at Reverend Graham's Bed & Breakfast!
I love Australia and wish the people here in the States could learn to enjoy life as you do.
As always, thank you so very much for your generosity, your hard work and most of all, your time. We will never forget our wedding day and wouldn't change a single thing if we had the chance to do it all over again. Everything was perfect.
Here's wishing you and your family the most memorable holiday season and happiest New Year! May each day bring you more joy than the last.
April and Reuben, Florida, USA

This is just a quick note to thank you for making our wedding day so wonderful. It ran so smoothly and for us, was practically stress-free. You really took care of us and our needs and we have no doubt as to why so many couples put their most special occasion in your hands. We have already recommended you to friends in England, and we will continue to do so.
Thank you again,

We can't thank you guys enough for seeing that our wedding was perfect. We truly feel indebted and are still amazed at how wired you had everything! It was nothing short of amazing, and we want you to know how much we appreciated your patience and selflessness.
Thank you guys so much! Please stay in touch, and if you're heading into LA at any point in the future, we sincerely hope you will allow us to be your hosts.
Bretton and Jennifer
I cannot thank you enough for the fabulous wedding you arranged for my daughter, now Mrs Jennifer Holmes (of Beverly Hills, California).
In all our travels around the world we have not seen a more beautiful place for a wedding than Sydney. It truly was a dream. The weather was perfect. The scenery was perfect. The Cadillacs were more than perfect: they were out of this world!
What was most extraordinary, however, were the people at Australian Dream Weddings and the Star City Casino hotel. All of you are astonishingly generous, honest, understanding and accommodating.
We are so grateful.
We would recommend Australian Dream Weddings and Star City to anyone.

We wanted to thank you for all your assistance with our wedding!
Kicking off the new Millennium in Australia and a wedding on January 2nd to follow the festivities seemed most appropriate. We had a blast and you were wonderful with handling all of the details. The cars were a hit with our family and friends! Please extend my appreciation to the florist for the perfect bouquet.
Again, a job well done. It proves you can plan a wedding over the internet and your organization was the best to work with!

I'm back in the US, good to be home. We are married 1 year now. The event took place, thanks to your great help, on 11 Oct 99 at the Garden next to the Opera House.
Just a brief THANK YOU for all you did for us. Everyone that has seen the tape has said that they would like to visit your country and they also say how nice it all looks.
We had a wonderful time and will re visit some time in the future. Please expect our email and phone call when we decide when.
Again, thanks for all your assistance. There is just no way we could have done it all ourselves.

A true Aussie Dream Wedding - what else can we say!
We would like to thank you all so very much for not only the most wonderful day of our lives but a truly memorable and fantastic holiday. From the day we met with you, we felt totally at ease and in very capable hands. Everything that you organised for us was perfect down to the very last detail.
The "Cadillacs" - were out of this world - we felt like Hollywood movie stars!! Grant who drove "Norma Jean" was such a character - I haven't known any other bride singing and dancing to rock "n" roll on the way to her wedding!! The "Harleys" were a hit - our guests thought the traffic must have been heavy in Sydney, and I had to have a police escort to get me to the wedding on time.
The Historic Manor and the gardens were absolutely beautiful, the staff were so attentive and the food and drink delicious.
The photographs and video are amazing. We must have shown the video a hundred times and it still brings a tear to our eyes!
All in all it was a very special time, not only for ourselves but our family and friends, who all agreed it was "The Best Wedding" they had ever been to!
All our thanks to you and your "team" for all the help and assistance which you gave to us, and even made us feel nothing was too much to ask.
