What Others Have to say?
We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant ! Trudy was amazing. She guided us through everything so clearly and was so patient with us . She is so easy to talk to and made us feel so comfortable . Everyone commented how great she was at our wedding and she even coordinated what she wore to suit our theme ! Loved her and we can't recommend her enough ! XO
From a roof top penthouse overlooking beautiful Kirra Beach, on the Gold Coast, Trudy performed a very personal ceremony for us. With our small gathering of family and friends, Trudy helped us celebrate our love with the words we had chosen for our occasion. One year on now, we look back on the weather, all the preparations and celebrations. In our eyes we had the most perfect day & evening surrounded by our family, friends and most of all - us. Thanks Trudy for making our dream come true.
We were very fortunate to have Trudy as our marriage celebrant. She was alway professional and informative and made our wedding day a very easy, fun and stress-free one. She has a beautiful warm personality that made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Trudy made our ceremony everything we wanted it to be and more! We can not thank her enough for her personal and heart-felt work that we will forever be grateful for! x
Trudy was a wonderful addition to our wedding party. She has a very calming way. She got to know us so she could craft the ceremony for our individuality. The sample vows were really useful with room to make them our own. I wouldn’t have known where to start. Trudy was willing to stand with us in the rain because we really wanted to be married on the beach. Fortunately the weather was perfect but it was comforting to know she was willing. We so appreciated Trudy’s guidance and friendly manner that we asked her to join us for our celebratory drinks and were very pleased when she accepted. I would highly recommend her as a celebrant.
David & I feel extremely blessed to have been married by this amazing celebrant, Trudy Brooke 💜 Trudy had actually been highly recommended to me by a good friend and intuitively I knew.. that when the day came, Trudy would be the perfect fit for us & our day. Trudy makes everything flow smoothly from the very beginning, right through to the big day. Other than her nurturing and gentle nature, Trudy goes over and above to meet and greet your guests, takes care of all the immediately family seating & takes times to learn all the parents names etc. It was just perfect, thank you Trudy!! Xx
Trudy married us in October 2015 at Budds Beach Reserve. It was such a beautiful afternoon, and we are so grateful to Trudy for making our ceremony both personal and magical. Trudy was able to organise our ceremony with very little face-to-face contact from us because we live in Cairns. In total we had one initial meeting and a rehearsal meeting, both where we felt comfortable, relaxed and confident that our day would be unforgettable. She created a warm, intimate, peaceful and personal ceremony for us and even helped with our vows and calming some pre-wedding nerves before the big day! Everything was well organised and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Trudy is a wonderful, professional celebrant, and we would recommend her to any couple looking to tie the knot. Thank you so much for marrying us and sharing our special day, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Trudy is such a warm and caring person with fantastic attention to detail - we were so pleased to have chosen her as a marriage celebrant from the moment we met her. She helped us design a beautiful ceremony that perfectly matched our needs and even managed to keep Ross calm waiting down the aisle on our wedding day. We loved having Trudy as part of our special day!
We had a good feeling about Trudy from our first email. It was stressful arranging a wedding from the UK and Trudy suggested Skype which enabled us to be sure we were happy with our choice of celebrant. There is a grounded and caring way about Trudy which held us prior to and throughout our wedding day. We absolutely knew Trudy was going to do a great job and our special day would not have been the same without her presence.
We were absolutely thrilled with everything about our little wedding celebration. We both felt that we could not have chosen anyone better as our celebrant. You did a stunning job of creating exactly the right tone, style, warmth and atmosphere. Thank you so much for making the whole process so easy for us. Your efficiency, knowledge and calm management of the process leading up to the wedding made it all so hassle-free and no stress. We felt that our ceremony was a wonderful personalised reflection of us as a couple and as a family, and we loved every moment of it. You gave us exactly the right guidance in the planning, and allowed us to personalise as well as gleaning ideas which rounded out the day perfectly. The sand made it home and no problems through customs. Unfortunately it did get slightly shaken up, so looks a bit different now, but still a special memento for us. The certificate arrived here very speedily, so all paperwork is done and dusted… again thank you for your efficiency! Thank you again for ensuring our wedding day was such a special day. Naturally, we would highly recommend you to anyone who is planning a Gold Coast wedding.
Dear Trudy, We just want to say a big THANK YOU for being a special part of our wedding day. We truly had the most amazing day and we will cherish the memories for a lifetime. You were so calm and professional and organised that Will and I didn’t have to worry about a thing and that meant we could relax and just enjoy the day. We are so thankful to you and we LOVE being married 🙂
Hi Trudy, I hope this finds you well. Now things have all settled we really wanted to get in touch and say thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. Many guests commented on how calming you were, this was particularly true when Sam became emotional. We were so happy with how our ceremony came together and that is all thanks to you. So thank you again and know we will definitely be highly recommending you.
Dear Trudy Thank you so much for your help in creating a special day with memories we will cherish forever. You brought joy to our day, warmth to our lives and happiness to our hearts. Thank you 🙂
To dearest Trudy THANK YOU!!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful job of marrying us! You were so perfect, you made us feel so relaxed by taking control so professionally and naturally – you were the one who made it official for us – our dream came true that day …Thank you from us.
Thank you Trudy for being apart of the best day of our lives, our wedding day. Your help and guidance leading upto the day and the assistance with our vows and ceremony made my husband and I feel so relaxed. Your professionalism and experience in wedding ceremonies was amazing and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is getting married and looking for the perfect celebrant. Thank you Trudy
Dear Trudy This ‘thank you’ card is a longtime coming 🙂 It’s certainly no reflection on your wonderful performance on our wedding day. Honestly, you were the best celebrant we could have hoped for. The day was perfect in every way and it certainly couldn’t have happened without you. We wish you every success in the future and hope to see you again sometime.
Trudy married Jess & I in August 2011, on the day Trudy was fantastic, she was very professional and very friendly, and numerous people came back to us afterwards and commented on such a great choice of celebrant we had made. From the first time we met with Trudy we had total faith that our special day would be perfect. Trudy made us feel completely comfortable with our choices and she was a great help with all the formalities and offered great suggestions while allowing us to make it uniquely ours. We would recommend Trudy to anyone looking to make their wedding day just that little bit more than special. Thank you very much,
Having known Trudy for a while as a friend, there could be no more perfect person to help us with our wedding. Her warm and gentle nature helped to relax us while her professional expertise guided us. Our wedding was a more family orientated affair having rented a beautiful house in the Tallai with a stunning outlook of the Gold Coast Skyline and Hinze Dam. The setup of the venue was quite extensive and Trudy assisted with the ceremonial area directing placements as would best suit the proceedings of the day. Now as you can imagine the lead up to the big event is quite a stressful one and having that extra help was a God-send. She ensures a smooth running start to finish, from the rehearsal ceremony right through to the signing. Having no idea what a ceremony entailed, her information booklet with her advice helped in creating a very personal and most magical ceremony, that in the end went absolutely perfectly. We thank you Trudy, from the bottom of our hearts for a very special day. With much love and appreciation.
Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful Fellini Ristorante on the Gold Coast overlooking the Broadwater on dusk in December 2007. The evening was absolutely perfect, made all the more magical with Trudy's assistance, organization & delivery of the marriage ceremony. At our initial meeting with Trudy we were unsure how we wanted our vows and ceremony except that we had our minds set on something very basic and simple. After meeting with Trudy we came away with a booklet of sample ceremonies, vows & readings and a layout which helped us build our most minimal vows into something incredibly special, meaningful and very personal to us both. Trudy worked with us all the way to the big day, assisting us and offering advice when requested and proved to be an invaluable guide during the ceremony, quietly leading us and directing us through our various stages of the ceremony to the signing of the marriage register and our presentation as man and wife. Trudy professionally managed the ceremony with the right amount of intensity throughout the entire process, from our first meetings through to the big day. Trudy was there for us when we needed her, always ready with information, soft and gentle with her approach, fostering warmth and comfort in us all - which was helpful approaching the ceremony! - at the same time ready with the strength required to be our guide and lead us to the next level, without losing touch of the spiritual and precious nature of our wedding day. Trudy was a wonderful choice as our celebrant and we are so thankful that she was available for us and that we were able to share our special day with her. It was a far more joyous and beautiful occasion with her care and involvement. We were incredibly happy with our wedding, both ourselves and our guests had a wonderfully relaxed evening - in fact it was everything & more than we had imagined - it was absolutely perfect.
From what I have heard, most people say that despite all the planning, their ceremony was a 'blur'. That certainly wasn't the case for us. I was worried that I would feel nervous in front of all of our family and friends, but on the day it felt like it was just the two of us. I remember every detail and felt like we got to say all the things we wanted to say. It really was perfect. Trudy was so relaxed and supportive and just seemed to understand exactly what we wanted. She was able to guide us through so I knew that I didn't have to worry about being nervous or forgetting what I wanted to say. But she guided us so gently that the ceremony was able to be very personal and intimate as well. We just felt that it was important to have someone with us who we felt comfortable with; and someone who understood.
Mark and I were married by Trudy at Burleigh Beach in June 08. Trudy was an amazing celebrant- she delivered to us a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable wedding and if you want a celebrant who will take care of every intricate detail, you need to book Trudy Brooke. Trudy had us organised with papers, well rehearsed with our wedding party and completely relaxed at what would normally be a stressful time. She cared for our ceremony - even to the point to give us the time once I arrived on the beach to stop, take a breathe, and enjoy the moment. She then proceeded with our ceremony in what many has described to us as 'the most magical ceremony they have ever seen'. We had an intimate wedding on the beach… it was Trudy's influence that put the magic in the air. We can't thank Trudy enough and even though she will insist it was her pleasure - the delight will be all yours!
From our initial meeting Trudy showed that she was a kind, warm person who genuinely cared about all aspects of our wellbeing and ceremony requirements. Trudy had put together great ceremony samples to assist us in designing a ceremony that was perfect for us. Trudy assessed and 'read' our needs both as a couple and as individuals. She made suggestions that addressed our emotional needs - as our fathers had passed away Trudy suggested a special way to honour them and their contribution to our lives. Trudy also tailored the ceremony to reflect our lightness & humour that truly expresses who we both are. From the beginning Trudy felt like a friend we'd known for many years - like part of the family. In fact my Mother-in-Law, friends and family thought she was absolutely beautiful, inside & out! Prior to the wedding Trudy had accommodated all our needs to ensure a hassle-free lead up to our day with regular communication and a rehearsal. Trudy handled our ceremony with efficiency & professionalism, while being open, warm and attentive. Our wedding was perfect in so many ways.
Neil and I asked to Trudy to travel with us to Palm Cove in Far North Queensland to conduct our marriage ceremony. Her warmth, professionalism and expertise, together with her input into our ceremony and our day, made it a truly memorable experience for us, our family and our friends. Trudy we sincerely thank you for being part of our lives.
We were looking for a celebrant that was down to earth and modern and someone that we felt comfortable with. We were sure that we wanted a ceremony that was simple and represented who we were as a couple. A friend recommended Trudy and after meeting her there was no hesitation that she was the right one, no need to shop around. She was very understanding and knew instinctively what we were after from our ceremony. She was very friendly and we could have a laugh with her so there was never any stress in organising our ceremony. It was probably one of the easiest parts to organise thanks to Trudy. On the day Trudy was a great support to calm the nerves and she was extremely professional yet warm and friendly. Everything went off without a hitch. I have been so happy with Trudy's services that I have recommended her to 2 of my work colleagues for their weddings and will continue to spread the word. Thanks Trudy.
