Gail is the crème de la crème of marriage celebrants. She officiated at our wedding earlier this year, one of the first same sex weddings since legalisation. Every aspect of the process and of the day went smoothly, happily and collaboratively thanks to Gail. She is a professional, warm, highly skilled manager and communicator. Gail was open to the special things we wanted to include in the ceremony, and contributed creative suggestions which enhanced our ideas. Our wedding, held at Berry on the south coast, was joyful for so many reasons, including the celebrant! Melissa and Amanda

Gail! We cannot thank you enough for making our special day exactly that…special. The way you personalised the ceremony and had such incredible attention to detail ensured our wedding was special for all involved. You made the whole process completely stress free, and right from the get go we knew we had made the best decision asking you to share our big day with us. Your professionalism, kindness, honesty and warmth meant we had the utmost confidence that the ceremony was going to be beyond what we could have envisioned. We have had countless comments from our guests about how beautiful and special the ceremony was…so much so that we won’t at all be surprised if you have all our friends and family calling upon you when it’s their turn to wed.

Gail is a wonderful celebrant! Right from the start, her enthusiasm, warmth, professionalism and collaborative nature made the process of organising our wedding celebration incredibly easy. Gail was a delight to deal with, helping us both in the planning stage to decide what style and tone we wanted, advice on how to write our vows, and input on ideas for readings. On the day, she helped us celebrate our marriage in a way that felt incredibly natural to us and our loved ones. Gail had us very relaxed and ran everything so smoothly, we could both take in the experience fully. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her, and we highly recommend her services to anyone looking for the perfect ceremony!

Gail was the celebrant for my sister's wedding. The ceremony was amazing. Gail spoke about my sister and her partner as if she had known them a life time. When my turn came to get married I knew that I wanted the same personal touch. Gail was the one I wanted. We were, of course not disappointed. Gail took the time to get to know our story. It's not easy to tell a stranger your life story. Not just the good stuff but the tough stuff that make you strong as a couple but Gail has a way about her that puts you at ease and you soon realize you can trust her with your story. Gail than turns your story into the perfect wedding ceremony that sums up your life and you love for each other. Thank you Gail for making it the most perfect day.

From our initial meeting with Gail we felt as though we could trust her with one of the most important days of our lives, and we were not mistaken. Her professional yet approachable manner, and willingness to take the time to get to know us as individuals and a couple made us comfortable throughout the entire process. With a fairly short engagement, Gail was organised and helped to ensure that we met all of the legal requirements, whilst also working with us to create an individualised ceremony that was a perfect reflection and celebration of our love. We were very fortunate to have found such a fantastic celebrant to help make our special day even more wonderful.
Russell and Justine
Gail created a personalised and beautiful ceremony that reflected our story and personalities very well. She used a questionnaire, as a way to build personal and life experiences that were important to us into the ceremony which was a brilliant way of personalising our ceremony and engaging guests. Gail was brilliant to work with, she gave us many great ideas and suggestions based on her experience. On the day she was professional and matched the style of our event very well. I couldn’t recommend Gail more highly as a celebrant.
Scott and Sarah
Our wedding day was the most perfect day we could have wished for and our ceremony was exactly how we hoped and envisaged. From the moment we asked Gail to be our celebrant, her genuine interest and excitement at being given the responsibility of marrying us was lovely and reassuring. We really appreciated her guidance, support, suggestions and taking the time to really find out from us what we wished to convey to each other and our guests during our vows and throughout the ceremony.
Sandy and Louise
In May 2015 we had the extreme honour of having Gail officiate our same sex wedding. The ceremony was so personal and so insightful about Louise and I as a couple, that our family and friends made the assumption that Gail had known us for a very long time and was a close family friend. Our guests and ourselves were in awe of our ceremony. The truth of the matter is that we only met Gail six weeks before our wedding! We were immediately drawn to her take charge approach, her warmth, professionalism and enthusiasm for us as a couple and our wedding. Gail’s insightful questions about our lives had us open up and tell her things that our closest friends and families didn’t even know about us. She guided us, prepared us and managed the process so seamlessly and no request was too much trouble. Louise and I couldn’t recommend Gail highly enough to anyone looking to make their wedding unique, personal and special. She will forever be remembered by us and our guests and has become a very special friend to us and our children. Thank you Gail for making the happiest night of our lives perfect.
Brett and Cath
Gail created a wonderful, personal and meaningful ceremony for our wedding in November. She put in the time and effort to tailor it to reflect our personalities and style and was supportive and proactive in the lead up. The service was exactly what we wanted – Sincere without being overly sentimental, funny, warm and brief. She created an inclusive environment for all our guests and her lovely nature and warm sincerity made the whole process a delight. She added an element to the day that I don’t feel we would have got from anyone else. I would definitely use her services again
Carolyn and Luke
Our Wedding Ceremony was all we wanted it to be thanks to Gail’s attention to detail. We were kept updated on exactly what was happening, both prior to and during the Ceremony, with assistance being offered on any other aspects which arose. Our guests have commented, both on the day and since, that they found the Ceremony to have been conducted in a highly professional and warm manner. Gail, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did in making our Ceremony a memorable one, exactly as we hoped it would be.
Josh and Claire
Gail, we wanted to thank you so much for your guidance and support leading up to our wedding day, it turned out to be a perfect day, a day we will never forget and one we were so pleased to have you part of. Our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We would recommend you to anyone.
Ron and Marie
Gail McGuckin officiated at our wedding ceremony and helped to make our day just that much more special to us by her genuine, kind, lovely nature and the lovely wedding vows she chose for us. Gail provided us with guidance and support pre and post wedding and we felt safe and comfortable knowing that she would make our wedding memorable.
