Our ceremony was nicely done. Simple and sweet. It was great that we could have a bit of a joke to calm the nerves and it was a good casual affair. Michael made us feel at ease and we felt relaxed (just a little bit of nerves). Michael was professional and calming. We appreciated that he incorporated our friends in the ceremony itself and made it meaningful for everyone. Certainly have happy memories.We would have no hesitation recommending Michael and Simple ceremonies to anyone.Jamie Blake10:38 14 Jun 17Firstly, I would like to thank you very much for everything you did for us on our special day. You were the celebrant for our wedding on 12/12/15 and we would both like to let you know what an amazing day we had. We were originally planning on going into a registry office to sign the wedding papers, however, Luiza’s friend recommended you as an excellent celebrant who could marry us. When we looked at your website we saw that it was actually cheaper for us to be married by you than for us to go to the registry office, and your weddings are in the park underneath the Harbour Bridge in North Sydney, which we thought was amazing and would be a great way to be legally married. We also saw your videos on your website and thought you seemed like a great person to be our celebrant. What I can say about our day is that the location was amazing and our wedding was perfect. Our impressions of you is that you’re a happy, friendly and approachable person and we were very lucky that you were our celebrant. You helped us with everything we needed to do and say throughout the day and helped us with all those very important wedding vows and wedding photos. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a simple or inexpensive wedding and know this day will be just as amazing as our bigger ceremony in Mexico where both our families and larger group of friends will be able to attend.Daniel Horth12:34 08 Jun 17The day was fabulous and we had nothing but great feedback from our guests regarding the way the ceremony was conducted. One comment we heard was that it looked like Michael really enjoyed being a part of the ceremony, that is something that we both felt and appreciated. Michael provided great assistance in getting all planned, making the whole process simple, relaxed and enjoyable. Thanks again.Krystal Gene02:30 08 Jun 17Thank you so much for your time at our wedding in 2015, you were absolutely amazing. Your energy and sense of humour made us feel very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourself. We couldn’t have picked a better celebrant to share our special day with us. We are super happy. Highly recommended!Ling Zhang01:23 30 Jul 17Michael is really nice and energetic. The wedding is fantastic and all the guests are enjoyable. We had a memorable moment with the ones we love and also Michael. Beautiful weather, wonderful view, all is perfect. I highly recommend Michael as your celebrant, you wouldn't be disappointed. He always replies my email in time, and answer my questions patiently. Thank you very much Michael.Sarah Matthews13:00 08 Jul 17Our experience with Simple ceremonies was just beautiful. Everything was ready for us for our special day and it all went smoothly. We are really happy that we chose to be married with Simple ceremonies. You's are really amazing and are helping so many people by providing this service 🙂 It was fun and always had a smile on my face. Michael was very friendly & made us feel at ease on our special day. Highly recommend Simple Ceremonies for a nice simple intimate wedding 🙂Priska Raharjo12:40 02 Sep 17Michael is very helpful. Since the first time we asked around, during the process of setting up the event, up to the date of ceremony and even after everything is done, he's always available, always prompt, always warm and always detailed in giving out information and advises. He's also a very friendly person, humorous, a round up good guy. Not just us, but all of our family who attended the service, love him. And as it's name - Simple Ceremonies - it was indeed simple, packed, yet not undermining the meaningfulness of what the ceremony represents. A very high recommendation to use his service. Much love, Justin & PriskaLisa Wiranto01:06 11 Sep 17As my mother couldn't make the Bali ceremony/reception, we decided to legally marry in Sydney with Michael Teulon as our Celebrant. It was so perfect! Cute little office with a faux green wall as a backdrop which made our photos look super 'sweet' and special. Michael was very easy going, down to earth and could very much keep up with our fun loving family and all the jokes! He was definitely not one of those 'cringe' celebrants and I would 100% recommend him to anyone. Just because it was 'quick and simple', all of the love, value, and purpose was still very much present in the moment. It was perfect. More than I had expected!Vineeth Joseph10:25 16 Aug 17Mini and I would like to thank Michael for a wonderful ceremony. We chose to have the ceremony at his office in North Sydney. Cute little place with good lighting for photos. Michael was amazing as our wedding celebrant. He was friendly, bubbly and passionate. He was great to deal with right from the start, easy to communicate with and quick to reply to emails. He provided a professional service and most of all made us feel special. Our guests enjoyed our ceremony and commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We would recommend his service to friends/colleagues. Thank you Michael!Peta Sanson23:10 11 Sep 17We have nothing but praise for Simple Ceremonies. Michael was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Our ceremony was simple but elegant, meaningful and very memorable (just what we wanted). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael and Simple Ceremonies for anyone looking for the most perfect, hassle free, but memorable wedding.Lisa Maddison22:06 20 Sep 17Firstly we both would like to thank Michael. We both came across the website for Simple Ceremonies one night. And both of us decided it would be great to be married under the Harbour Bridge. Michael organized everything to make sure our day was what we both wanted. On the day of our wedding we met Michael under the Harbour Bridge and straight away Michael made both of us relaxed and also had a few laughs. The ceremony was what we both had wanted for our special day. And Michael made sure it was very special for both of us. Family and friends who attended the wedding all spoke highly of Michael. One friend quoted I would like Michael to preform my wedding. We both would highly recommend Simple Ceremonies and Michael to help plan your special day. And being married under the Harbour Bridge was just magical. Thankyou Michael...
