"We chose Lesley because we appreciated her inclusive philosophy and her desire to work with young couples like ourselves. As soon as we met her, we were struck by her warm and friendly nature. Lesley’s experience was so valuable, as she was able to make suggestions and recommendations for the ceremony that we hadn’t even considered! We loved how she gave us the opportunity to discuss and change the ceremony and vows to suit us best. Despite a dramatic day, where the last minute venue change meant Lesley had to dash across Auckland to get to the new location, she was incredibly calm and collected. She gave us a beautiful ceremony and we are so glad she was part of our special day. Thank you so much again for everything you have done for us- what a journey! I will recommend you to everyone we know who gets engaged" - Alexa & Tony
