Nicola & Ben, Old Forest School

Heidi was absolutely amazing for our wedding. Everything was made to be so easy for us which made it very stress-free on the day. Heidi was easy to communicate with throughout the whole process, from skyping us while we were still in London to travelling to meet us the day before the wedding for a rehersal and run through.

The ceremony was exactly what we wanted, short, informal but still with that special ‘wedding’ feeling which Heidi pulled off perfectly. Thank you so much Heidi!! x

Laura & Joel, Oaktree

Absolutely loved having Heidi as our celebrant. She captured our vision perfectly and we couldn’t of asked for a better celebrant. She helped us create a very special down to earth light and fun ceremony. Heidi was easy to deal with and she was always easy to contact. Highly recommend.

Hayley & Michael, Fountain Gardens

Heidi was a fantastic celebrant!! We wanted someone young, relaxed and easy going, and she was perfect!! She was great at responding to all of my emails very promptly, and was so helpful – she made the whole process so easy. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you so much Heidi for helping to make our big day as special as possible!!

Anya & Damien, Olive Tree Cottage

Heidi was a lovely celebrant, we had so many comments about the ceremony and how natural it was. We wanted someone relaxed who could do a genuine, heartfelt ceremony without it feeling too formal or forced and Heidi was fantastic. We had an amazing day.

Andrew & Lorrin, Family Home

Heidi is an outstanding celebrant. She perfectly balances professionalism with a relaxed demeanour which set the tone for the rest of the day. She really treasures the sanctity of marriage but was happy to take our guidance on how we wanted the ceremony to run. If we could give 10 stars out of 5 we would. We can’t recommend Heidi enough.

Stephanie & Leandro, Family Home

Heidi was fantastic to work with from the beginning right through to the end. Heidi is very down to earth, friendly, confident and efficient and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her. We had been communicating only via email in which she has been great. On our big day – Heidi was cool, relaxed, focused and really presented a romantic and smooth Ceremony. We would highly recommend!

Mark & Jane, Mount Maunganui Beach

Heidi was a fantastic celebrant and very engaging, down to earth and relaxed where nothing was too much trouble. Heidi provided us with plenty of guidance and range of options that we blended to our own words. This really helped plan our special day and making it “our” day.

Neil & Sierra, Pixham Gardens

We live overseas in Central Qld and wanted to say our vows in NZ. Looking through Heidi’s web we both instantly knew she was our perfect match! About 6mths later and multiple emails with thousands of questions we finally got to meet Heidi at our beautiful ceremony location in Tauranga the day prior to our wedding. So calm and relaxed our rehearsal was completed. Heidi you are a so good at what you do, you were so professional and with all MY demands you easily made everything work with no fuss or issues. Many of my whanau who attended commented on how much of an awesome job you did. Heidi, from us both, thank you for being our celebrant.

Jason & Nina, Blue bi You

Heidi helped make our day be a fantastic occasion for us, our family and our friends. Relaxed, fun, engaging and professional – a real pleasure to have as our celebrant. Thank you Heidi!

Wayne & Trish

We both found Heidi to be the perfect Celebrant for our wedding. We found her to be very professional and friendly. No question, big or small was a hassle for her. She made us both feel so comfortable and confident that one of the most important days of our lives was going to run smoothly, and it did. 
At our request, she kept the ceremony light hearted and casual while also creating a beautifully intimate memory for us all.
The whole experience for us couldn’t have been any better.

Rebecca and Francis, Waihi Water Lily Gardens

Heidi was beyond amazing! She put up with all my silly questions I think of at 3 in the morning, she help me with the smallest of details and the large ones too with out a fuss and even coordinated the ceremony with the DJ so the music and everything was perfect for my moment to shine. I would recommend Heidi to anyone she is amazing!

Kylie & Russell, Fountain Gardens, Tauranga

Heidi is great! She was easy to get along with and organised which meant no hassles in the lead up to our wedding. On the day she helped add a modern and relaxed feel which was just what we wanted. 

I would definitely recommend Heidi. Her ceremony document that she provides is super helpful as it lets you pick and choose sections of the ceremony that best suit you and your partner. We received lots of great comments about our ceremony and that’s thanks to Heidi.

Blanche & Rhys Wylie, Ataahua, Tauranga

We loved having Heidi as our celebrant. She was incredibly helpful and made planning the ceremony easy. We really appreciated being married by such a kind, happy person with a genuine respect for marriage and all it entails. We definitely recommend Heidi.

Rebecca and David Holmes, Family Farm, Matamata

My husband and I cannot talk highly enough about Heidi Seal. She was the perfect person to marry us on our big day! She has a very kind sweet personality that suits a wedding ceremony perfectly. For us it was really important that our celebrant wasn’t too overpowering on the day, keeping the ceremony focused on us, which is exactly how it felt.

Heidi was very flexible with the style and script of the ceremony, which meant the ceremony was very personal to us. We had several conversations leading up to the big day which made us feel a little less nervous and confused about everything.

The way she read out our own words was so touching, making us and our guests tear up. I highly recommend Heidi as a celebrant, you won’t regret it.

Tina & Gordy McKeown, Okoroire Hot Springs Hotel,  Waikato

What can I say that has not already been said? Heidi did a stellar job.  She made me feel at ease right from the get-go. And that was before we had met face-to-face. The time-frame was tight and the details were vague but Heidi guided us through and our day was perfect thanks to her.

Extremely helpful, friendly, very knowledgeable, well spoken, and of course stunning…I would not hesitate to recommend Heidi to any future couple ready to take that next step in life together!! Thanks Heidi, YOU ROCK!!

Vanessa & John Goodwin, Bella Vista Lodge, Tauranga

Heidi Seal, is truly the perfect celebrant. She is young and fresh and is more than willing to help and offer great advice when needed. She can cater for any special requests but more importantly can guide you in the right direction when you need. The amount of comments and praise we got for having a fun, young, friendly celebrant is a true testament to Heidi! THANK YOU!!

Matthew & Ariana, Papamoa Hills

Heidi was the perfect celebrant for our ceremony!  She was incredibly friendly and helpful, and really helped us feel calm about our ceremony.  Whenever we had a question she quickly responded to our emails, which is always appreciated when trying to plan a wedding!  She listened to our desires for the ceremony, and helped us write it perfectly!  On the day of the wedding she performed our ceremony flawlessly!  We were immensely pleased with how everything turned out, and we couldn’t be more thankful to Heidi for helping our day run so smoothly!

Peter & Sammia, Charlemagne Lodge

Heidi was fantastic and did an excellent job. She made the ceremony everything we wanted it to be. We felt very comfortable working with Heidi as she was very warm, friendly and approachable. We had many guests comment about how beautiful the ceremony was and how great our celebrant was. Thanks very much Heidi!

Jason & Rebecca, Olive Tree Cottage

Having Heidi as our celebrant was fabulous! It was great having someone around our own age who was easy going, flexible and really positive about all of our ideas for the ceremony.

Heidi gave us so many ideas and was a great help in figuring out how to have what we wanted fit together nicely for a ceremony, with the right amount of gravitas and fun!

I can’t recommend Heidi highly enough. So many guests commented how lovely the ceremony was, and how natural Heidi was as a celebrant (plus getting props for having an ipad!)

Thanks so much again!!!

Haydn & Nicky, Olive Tree Cottage

It was fantastic having Heidi as our celebrant. Heidi is a lovely, warm, friendly person, which makes her very suited to being a part of the happiest days of people’s lives!  She really put us at ease, for what I felt was quite a nerve-wracking moment.  Heidi was able to provide us with lots of material, that we borrowed from to create our ceremony.  Heidi wrote and presented our ceremony perfectly. It included all our hopes, belief’s and commitment for marriage. As well as having a very relaxed and happy feel to it!  Heidi was beautifully presented and spoke well. Thanks Heidi!

Steve & Rachael, The Kingsview, Rotorua:

Heidi was awesome she helped make our day the best of our lives.  She was helpful in the lead up to our wedding with useful resources and even though we are in different towns she kept in contact every step of the way including a Skype meeting.  On the day she was very professional and provided a friendly and modern ceremony, we had fun.  Would highly recommend Heidi to anyone

Phil & Trish, Government Gardens Rotorua:

Heidi was 110% in every way,a delightful young lady, mature beyond her years. Very well presented and spoke wonderfully. She made our day a nice relaxed one. We would reccomend Heidi to anyone.

Dan & Alicia, Bella Vista Lodge

Heidi was great. She was super helpful in the lead up to the wedding and she made us feel relaxed on the day. The iPad was a nice touch also! Thanks so much Heidi – we will recommend you to others.

Mark & Jill, Pyes Pa Countryside

Heidi was a fantastic celebrant! Right from the start of the planning process she was helpful, friendly and great to deal with. Heidi added a relaxed atmosphere to our wedding and our guests loved her. I would definately recommend Heidi to anyone. We had such a great day and Heidi played a great part in this, thanks Heidi

Airoe & Jodene, Papamoa Beach

Heidi was amazing. So easy to communicate with and always willing to answer any questions we had. Our ceremony ran smoothly due to her warmth and controlled manner. There was definitely no stress!! A number of friends and family members commented on her confidence and the professional way she held herself. Thanks again Heidi. We couldn’t have asked for more

Sammy & Dan, Athenree

Heidi was a delight to work with. Leading up to the wedding we were able to contact her at any point with questions- each time she promptly replied and always had a load of information to give. Designing the ceremony and what was said was a lot easier than we had thought- Heidi had a great selection of examples and ideas to share with us from which we were able to construct a gorgeous ceremony filled with lovely words that were a true reflection of our love for each other. We had so many comments from friends and family about the ceremony and how the personal aspect of it made it so much more meaningful and intimate. I would recommend Heidi to all my friends and family should they be after a celebrant. She is professional, kind, and just an all round gorgeous person- Not just a pretty face! I must also mention that guests wondered if she was a friend of ours because she spoke so genuinely. How wonderful it was to have such a kind hearted person marry us- we were honored to have you be a part of our big day and will always look back at it with fond memories. Thank you Heidi and we wish you well in life.

Carsten & Rose, Mantels Mt Eden, Auckland

Dear Heidi, Carsten and I would like to give you a very big thank you for the part you played in making our day so special. Your professionalism, warmth and and sincerity just absolutely shone through when you conducted our ceremony. So many people commented on how lovely you were, and what a very good job youdid. As well as preparing and delivering the ceremony very professionally, I think you made a special contribution by just being yourself! You looked great too. Even with arranging things long distance, I still felt comfortable and confident that what we wanted the day to be was important to you. Thank you for the nice ideas, fantastic words and big smiles, you made it a celebration to remember.

Shane & Fay: Married October 2010, Sarnia Park, Cambridge

Heidi was a incredible celebrate and i have no hesitation in recommending her as celebrant. We have two very different family dynamics that needed to be brought together and also I wanted my uncle to participate in some of the ceremony. Heidi was amazing from the very first time we met her and was open to our ideas. She got to know both my husband and me and really made the ceremony very personal to us as well as being approachable at all times. On the day, I didn’t worry about the ceremony as I knew Heidi would have everything under control and she made the wedding service very special for my husband and me. I really appreciated every thing Heidi did for us before, during and after the wedding and I would highly recommend her as a wonderful celebrant.
