Val was the most incredible support and so generous with her time in the lead up to our wedding. The attention to detail in her preparation of our ceremony was to be commended at the highest level. Her sense of fun, compassion and interest in people shows in her delivery and any interaction we had with Val during the wedding arrangements. We strongly recommend Val to celebrate at any occasion.

“Val took our information and ‘homework’ and wove it into a beautiful Ceremony that was honest and heartfelt.  She infused it with the sad stories we shared, beautifully balanced with the humorous moments to lighten the mood.  We both would recommend Val Howard to anyone seeking a Celebrant. She made our day !!”


“Val was very accommodating in even agreeing to meet with us while she was “vanning” around our home state of Qld. This was very appreciated as we wouldn’t have met her in person until the rehearsal otherwise!

Val you spoke clearly, the audio worked well. You looked professional and your beautiful blue eyes calmed my nerves during our emotional ceremony.  So many of our guests commented on how beautiful & moving the ceremony actually was and we definitely felt the same! It’s pretty hard to fully capture 13 years of love and memories, but we think you surely did in the most amazing way. 

Thank you Val, for contributing so much to making our wedding the best day of our lives so far xx

We highly recommend Val to everyone who is wanting to have an amazing and beautiful ceremony.

Throughout all the planning up to the ceremony Val helped us along the way.  We would have been so lost without her help as both in our 50’s and married for the first time.

She is a beautiful, warm and friendly person and this comes out in the way she made us feel at ease right from the start. The ceremony was amazing and Val captured our love for each other in her words and how she shared our story with everyone present.  She embraced all that we wanted and included the “non tradition” of my gorgeous husband making the choice to take my surname.

All our guests complimented to us how wonderful Val was and they would like to have Val do their wedding when they take the next step in their commitment and love for each other. 

Thank you Val words can’t really express how grateful we are to you.

Warmest regards

Daniel and Kath Sanders

Val made the whole experience of our long awaited small and intimate wedding totally stress free  She was down to earth and friendly and we couldn’t have wished for a better person to guide us through all the paperwork and perform our ceremony. Thank you so much Val.

Val is an incredibly passionate and caring person who understands implicitly the value she can add to others. Her relationship skills, empathy and understanding is beyond doubt. I have witnessed her dedication to this new career over the last few months with her relentless pursuit of her studies, her enthusiasm and the great importance she places on the ceremonies she performs. Val clearly understands what an honoured role it is to be an integral part of the marriages she performs.

There is absolutely no doubt that Val is a considerate and empathetic person who applies high standards of integrity in everything she does. Her ethical and moral compass was obviously well instilled from a young age and she has lived her life always thinking of how she can help others.

I believe Valerie displays personal integrity along with personal standards. I have known Valerie to be non-judgemental and respectful of others. I believe Valerie is very understanding of people in general and shows great care and respect of all individuals. Valerie is well spoken and I believe she would make people feel at ease in a marriage ceremony. Valerie has been involved in volunteer work from service clubs to her current volunteer work with local patient transport of vulnerable sick people to either hospitals or other specialist appointments patients required. I am also aware of her high level of support of a personal friend who was terminally ill. Valerie's support of this person was above and beyond.
