Kylie and Chris - Married at Fig Tree Restaurant

My husband and I recently got married at The Fig Tree Restaurant, Byron Bay on the 21st April 2016 and we were lucky enough to have Michelle as our celebrant! 

She was incredible, we knew after we met her that we had made a great choice :) Michelle made us feel at ease from the moment we saw her the day before our wedding, for our rehearsal, and this continued all the way until we were husband and wife :) Our guests had come from all over the world and Australia to be there for our special day... among our guests there was a lot of experience in attending weddings and seeing celebrants in action.... all we heard from everyone was how 'Michelle was amazing and the best they had seen'... If you are considering having Michelle as your celebrant, stop now and book her! You most certainly will not be disappointed... quiet the opposite! It will be one of the best decisions you make towards the best day of your life.

Sahra and Jordan - Married at Fig Tree Restaurant

Dear Michelle,

Where do we start…. I’m sure you already know this but seriously 

HOW AMAZING ARE YOU!!!!

We cannot thank you enough for making our ceremony so special, the prep prior to and your warm kindness in calming our nerves prior to our big moment. 

Nothing was ever a hassle, your positive energy was infectious you made us feel like you were our second mum. After the ceremony it just sunk in at how beautiful the ceremony was and that was all down to you!!!

I remember when I initially started looking for a celebrant I stalked you on Instagram for months and knew who I wanted. Upon receiving Vender recommendations from Fig Tree you were at the top of the list and knew it was a sign and locked you in!!

All the guests were raving about how lovely and funny you were and we are so stoked you made a perfect choice for our ceremony in finding you and will be definitely highly recommended by all who attended and have our highest respect.

We will remember it forever.   Thanks again Michelle. You rock
