My husband and I had the pleasure of being married twice by Keren – once for just a legal ceremony and the second time in the presence of family and friends.
We cannot recommend Keren highly enough! She was gracious and exuded positive, happy energy at both ceremonies and engaged with not only the two of us and our sons but also the larger audience.
Keren has a gift for making everyone around her feel wonderful about themselves and we saw this in abundance during our ceremonies!
We met with Keren several times to answer her questions about us: how we met; our feelings for each other; information about our families. She took our answers and incorporated them into a moving, emotional and joyous introduction to our ceremony – we couldn’t have been more delighted by her crafting of our story together.
Her warmth, poise and ebullient presence, combined with her complete professionalism and true delight in her role as celebrant made our special day even more wonderful. Her sincerity and her brilliantly crafted story of our romance moved many of our friends and family to tears and left us very grateful we had been fortunate enough to have her as our celebrant.
Keren was also very flexible and accommodating when we needed to move the ceremony indoors as 43C was a little too hot for our outdoor ceremony!
In short, if you are looking for an exceptional celebrant who will make your day about YOU and brilliantly engage your family and friends in the tale of your romance, then you need look no further than Keren.

Chris & I would just like to say a massive thank you to you for everything you have done for us.
You did an absolutely amazing job at the ceremony. We had so many people comment on how personal, how entertaining and interesting you made it, one in particular said that other normal ceremonies can be boring with all the standard readings. But you made ours so personal and so happy.
Thank you so much for making our day so ‘us’, so personal and so wonderful.
Much love Chris and Asha ooxx
Thank you so much for everything you did – we loved our ceremony and received so many compliments on how great it was so THANK YOU!
I wish we could do it all again.
Again, thank you SO much, we couldn’t have done it without you, really!
Love Annaliese and Brent

Thank you Keren for all your guidance, love, and support every step of the way.
Our ceremony was a true reflection of the two of us and what matters to both of us. We laughed, we cried, we didn’t want it to be over.
You really did make it the most magical day.
Love Lisa and Collette xx

We met Keren over a coffee about 16 weeks out from getting married. She put us at ease instantly, so much so the private questions didn’t feel so personal!
She called us ‘her couples’, that is how we felt from the moment we met, and we felt we were in very capable hands and looked after every step of the way. She took care of all the little details.
She organised a ‘Pre-Wedding’ rehearsal about 2 weeks out and made small adjustments. Gave me the confidence to read out a poem I had prepared for my husband to be that I wanted her to do, I was nervous but I did it!
She managed to tailor the ceremony to our needs; real (because we’d been round the block!), added a touch of humour bringing everyone together to celebrate.
Thank you Keren, you made our day special and the fact that you hung round afterwards to share a glass of bubbles was very special, so much so one of our family members asked whether she was our friend.
Yes, if you want someone to create a friendly, warm atmosphere who is personal, natural…Keren is your celebrant.
Thank you so so much for being such being a wonderful Celebrant.

We cannot thank you enough for all your work and time and for “marrying” us – truly the best day ever!
Your dedication and passion towards your clients is amazing. We couldn’t be happier with how our vows and ceremony went and it’s all thanks to you.
From the minute we met with you, we knew you would be perfect and your infectious personality and down to earth nature is exactly what we wanted.
Thank you for guiding us through an amazing journey and sharing with us our happiest day.
Love Rich and Shira
From the moment my Partner and I spoke to Keren, I knew we had a special bond.
Keren was so warm, friendly and willing to really get to know us, her positive attitude and genuine nature made us feel so comfortable and we couldn’t imagine anyone else officiating us.
Keren’s way of creating personalised ceremonies is so unique and she really makes you sit down and think about your answers which she created such a beautiful ceremony from.
We couldn’t recommend Keren enough and thank you for being apart of our special day.
Thank you for all you have done we couldn’t of asked for a better ceremony everything ran sooo smoothly and all our guests loved it, Xo
We met Keren at a Bridal Expo in Carlton, and once we started chatting to her, we knew that she was the one.
Keren is a very kind person and we felt a lot of positive energy from her.
Prior to the ceremony we had a couple of meetings and a wedding rehearsal to make sure everything went to plan. She was extremely professional throughout.
On the wedding we were both very nervous, but Keren made us feel guided, secure and calm which was fantastic.
We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests. Thank you so much for being our celebrant, I was very nervous and you calmed me down a lot on the day !
Vivien & Robert
From the very first day I met Keren I knew that she was going to complete the wedding of our dreams.
We honestly can not thank you enough for how wonderful, welcoming and special you made Daniel and I feel.
8 months on and I still can not believe how perfect you made our day.
The little details that went into the ceremony was exactly how we wanted and it felt like you had been with us on our journey to getting married from the day we met.
Daniel is a usually very shy person and to open up and be so natural around you, I knew you were the perfect fit for our perfect day. Daniel is full of surprises isn’t he 😂
We honestly can not thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts for adding the final touches to our perfect day!
You truly are amazing. Thank you again 😘

Keren, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a perfect ceremony.
We could not have imagined a better sermon than today. We know they were ‘our words’ but your guidance throughout the whole process, the structure, the tribute to my grandma, the very secret reveal on how we met, was all you.
We really think its fate we found you through Lisa T, and we are proud to be your ambassadors/endorsers!!!
Big love Al and Kat xoxo
Thanks to Keren, our ceremony was absolutely amazing.
We wanted to incorporate both Jewish and Italian traditions and Keren had some great ideas to help craft the perfect ceremony for us.
We received so many compliments on how it was classy, respectful, and still playful.
It was incredible and we’re so glad that we chose Keren to make our love official!
Love Simone and Jordan

We were married by the delightful Keren Loyer on 25.10.14 on a property in Bodalla on the NSW South Coast.
Keren made the whole process incredibly easy and very enjoyable.
We first met to discuss the type of ceremony we would like and Keren took the time to ask the right questions, listen to our needs and calm our nerves around creating a beautiful ceremony that reflected our values. Keren then followed up with options and made it easy for us to co-create a ceremony that allowed us to say our own vows and include our mothers by allowing them to select their own readings.
When Keren ran through the ceremony she had created both of us were in tears of happiness. The day was simply beautiful.
Keren played a huge role in creating the best day of our lives by giving us the gift of a magnificent marriage ceremony.
Keren has a beautiful nature and had a wonderful and memorable way of engaging with us and our guests. We love Keren!
Love Jacqui & John Waine
By a friend recommendation we had the chance to have Keren on our special day !
We couldn’t have found a better person to guide us on this day.
Fun, dynamic and so cheeky – yes it is Keren I am talking about. She made us feel very comfortable and able to personalise everything (our vow, text…) coming from two different cultures and religions, she let us adapt to our choice – everything!
She even let me use her Chuppah.
I would definitely recommend Keren for any wedding!
Steph and Dotan X
Thank you so much Keren for making Polly Bean’s naming ceremony perfect…apart from being incredibly efficient and professional (qualities we rate highly!), it was really the warmth of your personality that made it really special for us.. it was like having one of our family who we have known all our lives conducting the ceremony for us…
I appreciate that you were very respectful of our wishes and made suggestions that aligned with those and I loved the way you helped us incorporate key people in our family into the ceremony, even my dad and step mother overseas.

A few months ago a friend posted on a Facebook page for me, as I was looking for a Marriage Celebrant.
We were unsure if we would be able to get married by a Rabbi. In the end, we actually could have been married by a Rabbi but decided to stick with the Celebrant we found.
We could not imagine having a more perfect ceremony for us, it was truly beautiful.
Keren Loyer is without a doubt the best Celebrant. She was so wonderful to work with and made our day so special.
Thank you for those who recommended her and a MASSIVE thank you Keren!!!!!
Jacqui and Dave
Thank you so much for doing an amazing job at our wedding!
Adam and I loved every minute of the day and were absolutely over the moon with everything!
We are so excited to watch the video so we can see it all again!
Adam and I were so thrilled with how the day went and we would not have changed a thing.
Thank you again,
Liana and Adam xoxo
From the bottom of our hearts we wanted to say thank you for making our day so special.
From our first meeting when you asked questions about our lives, our relationship story and our hopes and wishes for our special day, we knew we had made the right choice.
You truly made our wedding ceremony personal and unique and we are so appreciative you took so much time and care to make it so.
Even presenting us with a bound keepsake of our vows, readings and ceremony, really made our experience with you an absolute pleasure.
We will be recommending you to every engaged couple we know as we are sure our guests will.
The Very Happily Married Shannon and Kristie Silver
We had the absolute pleasure of having Keren administrate and perform the Celebrant duties at our wedding.
After meeting Keren for the first time we knew we could absolutely trust her judgement and that she truly understood what we were hoping for from a ceremony.
Keren put together an amazing service that suited us beautifully and captured our spirit, sense of humour and the essence of our relationship.
We found Keren intuitive, relaxed and great fun to work with. We cannot recommend her services highly enough.
Nina and Justin
We were so lucky to find Keren on our search for a Celebrant that could bring a mix of religions and cultures to a ceremony. We are individually from Christian and Jewish backgrounds and Keren was great in suggesting and bringing together special cultural traditions to make the ceremony unique for us as couple.
From our first meeting, Keren was so easy to get on with and we instantly connected with her. Not only was she perfect for our actual wedding in the Yarra Valley, but we soon discovered that Keren was also travelling to Israel earlier in the year, at the same time as our “Israel celebration”. The stars aligned and Keren gladly accepted to present our ceremony in Israel, also taking the time and effort to put this together in both Hebrew and English.
Keren has such a warm, friendly and open personality and got on with everyone. We had several comments from guests at both events on how fantastic she was. Her bubbly and fun nature resulted in a very light-hearted and relaxed ceremony, and eased our nerves!
Thank you for everything, Keren!
