    We were lucky enough to have Rose as our celebrant for our big day. Not only did Rose deliver an amazing ceremony that was perfect for my husband and I, she went above and beyond for us. We had a level 2 COVID wedding in which Rose supported us (mainly me!!). Rose is passionate, kind and down to earth and I couldn’t be happier with her service. 10/10 would recommend.

    Mrs Peters - 18 January 2020

    Rose is the most down to earth, sweet and thoughtful celebrant. We absolutely recommend her to all couples! Rose prepared a ceremony that was unique and captured who we are – all after only meeting us once! She certainly has a knack for this. We received so many compliments about Rose from our guests as well. She ensured the ceremony ran smoothly, everyone was relaxed and there was plenty of laughter. Thank you so much Rose, you really added a special touch to our day and it wouldn’t have been the same without you. We can’t wait to get you back for a baby naming ceremony in the future.

    There were many reasons why we picked Rose to be our celebrant but the main one was because of the instant connection we had. Rose made us feel so comfortable from day one. Being based in Australia proved hard to organise a wedding from so far away, having that connection when we hadn’t met in person was even more reassuring that we had picked the right celebrant. I don’t think there are many celebrants out there that write every ceremony from scratch, the personal touch really pays off. Our guests thought that we knew Rose personally because they too felt the connection on our wedding day. Rose listened to how we wanted our ceremony to be, and she pulled it off perfectly. Rose, you were by far one of the best vendors we dealt with and we can’t thank you enough for our amazing day xx.

    Mrs Wenmoth - 29 July 2017

    At one of the wedding shows, we overheard someone tell someone else, they had to go and talk to “that Celebrant Rose Haskell”, which made us want to go and talk to her too. Throughout our journey Rose was bubbly, kind and made us feel relaxed. 18 months later, she’s basically our 4th child/part of our family and EXACTLY who she was when we first met. She wrote and delivered our ceremony with a wonderful, relaxed vibe. She worked along side the other vendors and MC’d our reception with professionalism and was highly organised. We have no hesitations recommending Rose as a Celebrant, MC and friend. Thank you so much Rose!

    Mrs Campion - 10 March 2018

    I knew from the moment I found out Rose was a celebrant that we just had to have her as our celebrant for our special day! Not only did she make the whole experience enjoyable, fun and meaningful, everyone came up to me and said how much they loved our ceremony because Rose was so cool and fun and fitted to us as a couple perfectly! Highly recommended.
  • Mrs Coombs - 06 January 2018

    Mrs Coombs - 06 January 2018

    Possibly the most organised and pedantic bride Rose has officiated for to date. Booked 18 months out and about 15 changes to the ceremony �� Rose took it all in her stride. And made the ceremony incredibly personal and full of character. No easy feat when the word crazy is used 13 times. Rose owned the ceremony and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Helps that Rose has a great sense of humor and dare I say it.. crazy.
  • Mrs Coombs - 06 January 2018

    No words can really describe what an amazing celebrant and person Rose is! Our ceremony from start to finish was incredible and she was super helpful throughout our time of knowing each other. Rose has a lovely personality, she’s so bubbly and fun. Kyran and I loved having Rose as part of our day. We highly recommend Rose Haskell as your celebrant. Xx
