Lindy Cooke Celebrant


It is always so heart-warming to receive reviews from clients and others with whom I come into contact as part of my celebrancy business. Here is just a snapshot of some of the many comments I’ve received.

 Lindy, I just want to say how thankful I am for sharing our very special and beautiful day. There was not a dry eye and you made it so perfectly special for our whole family and every guest. You truly have a gift and we can’t thank you enough for telling our story in such a perfect way ~ Katie T. (Larnook, NSW)

Thank you Lindy! For your guidance, gentle reminders and love for what you do. We both appreciate your flexibility with having our children be a part of our ceremony and how unpredictable that can be. Thank you for going with the flow of our lives (which doesn’t change just because it’s our wedding day!) ~ Arietta L. (Alstonville, NSW)

 I had the pleasure of creating and coordinating a very intimate reception for under 20 people a few weekends ago! Can I just mention their ceremony! Lindy Cooke Celebrant put together the most heart felt, tear shedding ceremony which I think I will remember forever! It was absolutely beautiful! I was in charge of playing the music before, during and after the ceremony and let me tell you, I had to walk away at some point and compose myself so I could see the play list! ~ Renee Campbell, Help Me Hitch – Wedding Coordinator

Lindy was amazing from the get go. We reached out to a few celebrants in our search to choose the right one and Lindy was so prompt and professional in her response, we arranged a meeting with her as soon as we could. As soon as we met with Lindy we felt at ease. She was so kind, thorough and took care of everything for us. It truly made the process so easy. Lindy checked in with us regularly and helped us with every step throughout the process.

If you are looking for an amazing celebrant that actually takes the time to get to know you to ensure your ceremony is personalised and includes the important aspects that you want, then Lindy is your lady! ~ Courtney N. (Casino, NSW)

Mia and I got married with Lindy as our celebrant. Right from the beginning, it was clear she knew her stuff. She has been so helpful, prompt, professional, warm and friendly and ready to help at every turn. Lindy delivered the most beautiful heart-warming marriage ceremony on the front verandah of our home in Geneva. I couldn’t be more grateful. Thanks Lindy ~ Matt S. (Geneva, NSW)

 OMG Lindy, you are magical. The ceremony is perfect. Thank you so much Xx ~ Tamieka M. (Dungarubba, NSW)

 It was just so lovely having Lindy as part of our special day. She was so thorough and easy to communicate with. She thought of everything and the ceremony she put together was just beautiful. We recommend Lindy without hesitation! ~ Jacquelyn D. (Mudgeeraba, Qld)

 Lindy was the celebrant for our wedding and we are so glad that we had her for our special day! Lindy was amazing in every aspect, she was clear, friendly and understood what vibe we were going for. Lindy gave me reminders leading up to the date to help ease some of the stress and everyone who attended our wedding complimented on what a fantastic job she did. Highly, highly, highly recommend!!! Thank you Lindy! ~ Shannon H. (Casino, NSW)

 After much research and meeting many celebrants, I knew right away that Lindy was the pick of the bunch and the right person to lead Matt and I into wedded bliss. Lindy was always clear & super organised while creating a deeply personalised wedding ceremony. A consummate professional but with real heart. Lindy did so much more for our family than perform our marriage ceremony and legalise our union. She led us through designing our ceremony to be our dream, helped us with insightful tips that only a dedicated and experienced local would know, shared resources and wise ways of presenting and seeing things. All the while incorporating our goals, ideas and vision for the start of our marriage.

We look forward to Lindy’s role in helping lead us through other important rituals in our lives. Lindy is 5 star for a reason and if you meet her you will quickly see why ~ Brittany N. (Tatham, NSW)

Thanks Lindy for going with the flow with a ceremony that was interrupted with a downpour. You did a fantastic job of gathering all the guests together again under the marquee to finish our vows and for the signing. You made our ceremony unique to us and included beautiful details I forgot we had mentioned. In the lead up to our wedding, I always found our catch ups organised and helpful, with clear steps of what we needed to do next. All in all, you made the ceremony the least of our worries and the easiest part on the day! ~ Simone & Dean R. (Footscray, Vic)

Lindy is one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting; she is organised, methodical and amazing but most of all ensures your happiness is at the centre of everything.

It is important to me to get quick responses. Lindy replied immediately despite the time difference and gave me all of the information upfront without overwhelming me, making the build up to our special day effortless. We had a Skype call so we could get to know her a little better and, by the time we met in Ballina a few days before the wedding, I felt as though I had known her for years. Lindy has such an easy going, pleasant nature, you warm to her from the minute you meet her.

I can’t thank you enough Lindy. You made my life so much easier leading up to the wedding and made our wedding day perfect. You are the most lovely person and I am so happy I found you. Shayne and I are now back in the UK and I miss Australia terribly but I have so many wonderful memories of our day. A massive thank you xxxx ~ Shayne & Diane C. (Wirral, United Kingdom)

It was absolutely spectacular last weekend. Beau and I could not have been happier with how it all went down. We would like to thank you for being our celebrant and making this all a reality. We are so happy with how our ceremony went; your words were beautiful. Thank you for taking care of all the paper work. You helped make our wedding day stress free. Thank you again for everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!!! ~ Tara V. (Casino, NSW)

Dear Lindy, thank you for your help in organising our wedding ceremony.  We were so happy with all you did for our special day. You truly were the perfect person and your guidance and help was invaluable. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service you conducted on the day. It is a day we will remember forever. Sincerely ~ Em & Michael G. (Newcastle, NSW)

Thank you again Lindy for a lovely (naming day) ceremony. You did a wonderful job. We can’t thank you enough ~ Kate F. & Matt R. (Lismore, NSW)

Lindy, you are such a heartfelt celebrant. With the words you spoke on our special day, you brought my husband to tears and same with me. You know how to make a wedding day so special for anyone. We are blessed that we found you for our big day. You are amazing and I highly recommend you to all ~ Gabriella R. (Goonellabah, NSW)

♥ Really loved meeting with you Lindy as you put both our minds at ease with your calm and professional energy. Thank you so much for the effort and time you have put into the memorial presentation. We really love it. And a very grateful thank you to you Lindy in presiding over this service … for the caring positive energy and guidance you gifted us” ~ James & Jade T. (Iluka, NSW)

We recently got married by Lindy she was absolutely amazing to work with. She made everything so easy for us.

Thank you again for everything. (We) had a perfect day and you were amazing! ~ Jade L. (Murwillumbah, NSW)

Lindy was amazing. She was always professional, friendly, kind and welcoming to myself, my new husband and our family. What I particularly liked about Lindy was that she was very organised with the ceremony and always prompt with her reply emails to my questions. She made the stressful part of organising the ceremony so easy and you can trust her to do the job right. We even had guests commenting on how lovely she was. Thank you Lindy! ~ Bianca J. (Barton, ACT)

Lindy, thank you so much for your professionalism and attention to detail, going well past our expectations of a marriage celebrant.

Lindy married us newlyweds two days ago and we are still beaming from ear to ear. As soon as we saw her website we knew she would be highly organised, professional and sensitive to our needs. We wanted a simple, quick ceremony with no fuss, yet sincere, personal and sweet. Lindy delivered just that. It was wonderful. (She) made it possible for us to share the greatest moment in our lives xo ~ Hayley P. (East Lismore, NSW)

Thank you Lindy! You put together such a beautiful and accurate ceremony for us in such a short time frame and after only one meeting with us! I couldn’t believe how well you captured our story; you made our special day so easy and stress free, nothing was a problem. Your experience and professionalism was evident and we had every confidence in you delivering exactly what we wanted. We’re so glad we picked you to be our celebrant, thanks again xxx ~ Angela R. (Kyogle, NSW)

Thank you Lindy for conducting such a beautiful ceremony at our wedding! We loved just how easy you made the process and your patience throughout the last 8 weeks. We couldn’t have asked for more and we will always appreciate those smaller things you did for us! With love from the new Mr and Mrs Wilkinson ~ Amy W. (Casino, NSW)

Thank you so much Lindy for an incredible ceremony! Everyone said that it was beautiful and it truly was. Our day couldn’t have been more perfect. You incorporated everything that we had imagined and brought it to life. Not only that, but in general you have been supportive, generous, kind and understanding towards us and for that we are truly thankful ~ Sara E. (Lismore, NSW)

You have a beautiful presence and I’m so glad you were the one to marry us. You’re so very good at what you do Lindy. You truly have been a blessing on our special day. You have been nothing but spectacular throughout this whole process and we appreciate it so very much ~ Rhys D. (Semaphore, S.A.)

Lindy was the perfect choice as our wedding celebrant. Although we were in South Australia for the preparation, Lindy’s continuous support and caring nature made the distance feel like nothing at all. Her warming and calming presence was so very fitting for our special day we couldn’t say enough how glad we were to have her as our celebrant. Thanks so much Lindy for such a beautiful ceremony. You were an absolute blessing on our day x ~ Em H. (Semaphore, S.A.)

Your attention to detail made it all stress free … we’ve had so much positive feedback from our guests about it … we’ll be sure to recommend you to any of our friends. Thank you again, Linda and Geoff P. (Lismore Heights, NSW)

♥ Hi Lindy, I just finished reading through everything, and I have to say, thank you so much! I love every part of it! It’s beautifully put together, just the right length, and so personal to us. Thank you again. I can’t wait to see it all come together ~ Danielle T. (Goonellabah, NSW)

My new husband Tristan and I couldn’t be happier with the service Lindy provided us in the preparation and the day of our wedding. With us living out of state we were worried over finding a celebrant who could create a personal ceremony to suit us as a couple, however Lindy happily exceeded our expectations. She was highly professional but her calm and friendly personality made her a friend to us. We would happily recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much again Lindy! ~ Sharni S. (Durack, N.T.)

We chose Lindy as our marriage celebrant and could not have been happier. Lindy put together a beautiful and personal ceremony for us. It is really obvious how much time, love and care she puts into making sure everything is perfect. You can tell she loves what she does! Lindy was always warm, kind and welcoming to us. She really went above and beyond to make the ceremony special and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting a beautiful, thoughtful and personal ceremony ~ Danielle S. (Goonellabah, NSW)

My best friend suggested Lindy to me for my wedding. Best choice she could have made! There was not a single person at our wedding that didn’t comment on how beautiful it was to have the ceremony customized to suit us & to have the whole thing about us! I would recommend Lindy to anyone. Everything went perfectly on the day because of her professionalism & love for what she does. Thank you Lindy for making our day fantastic! XX ~ Donna S. (Dungarubba, NSW)

I found Lindy’s business card on a bench at the Eltham Pantry, only days after setting our wedding date. We didn’t have to “shop” for a celebrant because Lindy was so friendly & thorough on first contact, we needed no other option. Our guests were commenting on how relaxed our ceremony was & how involved Lindy was. They mostly commented on how much they cried because it was just so beautiful! Thank you so much for your help, Lindy! Our special day is definitely a day we & all who attended will not forget ~ Amy G. (Goonellabah, NSW)

We were very confident having Lindy as our marriage celebrant. Lindy kept impeccable, honest and prompt communication with us from the beginning meeting, right up until days after the wedding was over. The ceremony that Lindy designed for us was perfect for us, including an “unplugged ceremony” request to guests, guiding us through the legalities and flow of the ceremony, incorporating a reading by a relative and a wine ritual. We would jump to recommend Lindy to any couples looking for the perfect celebrant. Thank you Lindy for being an imperative part of our special day! Love from ~ Jesse and Denise P. xo (North Lismore, NSW)

Lindy was such an amazing celebrant. She went above and beyond to make sure we were both happy with the ceremony and how it would run, as well as understanding the various legalities behind getting married. We would recommend Lindy in a heartbeat! Thank you so much from both Jake and I ~ Annebelle McL. (Bilinga, Qld)

Lindy has such a bubbly personality and is so easy to work with. We wanted to make sure we had our own little twists so that it was a different sort of day and Lindy helped us a lot. I love how she only focuses on one wedding a day. If you want an awesome celebrant, definitely see Lindy. Thank you so much Lindy ~ Evie P. (Goonellabah, NSW)

Lindy is very thorough and was a guiding light during the planning phase of our wedding ceremony. She goes beyond what is expected of her and does it with a smile. She’s professional, easy to deal with and well worth her fee! Can’t wait to share our wedding pics with you Lindy. I think you’d agree the ceremony location out on Broken Headland was pretty spectacular! ~ Chris A. (Wollongong, NSW)

Mitchell and I would like to express how much it meant to have you be our celebrant for our wedding. From the first time we met, you jumped on board with our humorous attitude and made a ceremony come together that really reflected us both. Thank you for everything ~ Lisa E. (Tatham, NSW).

Thank you so much for the most amazing re-naming ceremony for my daughter’s 18th. Everyone loved the service and all the surprises. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for everything you have done to help us make Tikki’s night so special ~ Caren B. (Bangalow, NSW).

Lindy was absolutely amazing as our celebrant, she was very professional but what I loved most was that she was very friendly and had so much love for us on our wedding day. Everything she said on the day was so spot on and it just made our day. I’ll always recommend Lindy to all my friends for their weddings in the future. Thank you so much Lindy. You have made me and Jess so happy and we can always look back on this amazing day ~ Alex C. (Lennox Head, NSW).

WOW! What a stunning day! It is now two days after my wedding & I am still struggling to find words for my emotions. Firstly, a week before our original ceremony date, the groom received the most amazing gift of a kidney. Without hesitation Lindy sent us an incredible card of well wishes & thoughts. This act of kindness made postponing our wedding easier & reassuring. Thank you! Secondly, the ceremony was beyond what we imagined. Lindy focused on the emotions & actions that meant the most to us. The groom drawing the guests to gather around with the singing bowl, the handfasting ceremony representing us as a couple and the Barn Owl delivering our rings! Lindy had an amazing way of making us feel comfortable & relaxed through the whole ceremony. She embraced all the elements of the wedding ceremony. We cannot THANK YOU enough & highly recommend Lindy’s celebrant service ~ Carmen F. (Ocean Shores, NSW).

Lindy, I cannot thank you enough for (our daughter’s naming day ceremony) today. It was beautiful and so perfect. Exactly how I pictured it ~ Traci C. (Bexhill, NSW).

We can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done to help us put together Jasper’s naming day ceremony. We will always remember this special day xo ~ Erin, Olly & Jasper (Singapore).

Working in the wedding industry I have had opportunity to work alongside a number of wonderful suppliers, and Lindy is certainly a highly regarded professional in her role as a celebrant. As part of my own role as a photographer capturing couples’ ceremonies, Lindy has always impressed me with her bubbly and personalised approach to her clients. Her passion really shines through when writing ceremonies filled with deep meaning and authenticity for each of her couples. The delivery of her ceremonies is always heartwarming and honest, often bringing a tear to her couple’s faces. I always look forward to working with Lindy, and have no hesitation highly recommending her as a professional and delightful celebrant ~ Sarah Hughes, Bye Bye Blackbird Photography (Alstonville, NSW)

Lindy was beyond amazing from start to finish! She was the first and only celebrant that we met with – we clicked with her straight away and we said “I do” to her because she knew how to capture our story for the introduction to our ceremony. Very quick, easy communication and such a gorgeous, friendly and lovable personality. Our day wouldn’t have been the same without you there! Thank you so so much, we will never forget the way you made our day ours ~ Madelaine K. (East Lismore, NSW)

Lindy was a brilliant asset to have on our team leading up to our wedding. I couldn’t sing her enough praise. She explained the process so clearly and provided many options for personalising our ceremony and making us feel like the most important couple in the world. We had a hand ribbon knot tying ceremony and ring warming that involved our parents in the ceremony. We and all of our guests loved this personal touch suggested by Lindy. Her clear guidance and instruction throughout the process, and in particular the rehearsal, really provided us with the confidence to go into the ceremony with some degree of comfort. She had some bad news in the days leading up to our wedding and managed herself with a level of professionalism second to none. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough ~ Paul L. (Coolum Beach, Qld.)

We would like to thank you for the amazing personal ceremony you did for us on our very magical, special day. With every meeting, email, text and phone call, (you were) so calming, especially the morning of our wedding. We can’t recommend you enough. The personal service you give is beyond words. We still laugh about the funny things that happened and especially how the storm held off until after our ceremony and everyone was under cover. Lindy, you came up to make sure we were happy and OK after the ceremony and storm which made us feel calm and relaxed again. All we can say is that Lindy has the biggest, caring heart for all her clients. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ~ Dave & Karen O. (Whiporie, NSW)

From the moment we met you and corresponded, we believed we had made the right choice and, come game day, you certainly didn’t disappoint. You were fantastic, and with your professional and calming approach took away those pre-ceremony nerves ~ Shaun A. (Driver, NT)

Mitchell and I would love to say a huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Even though it rained, you were the one who helped make our special day happen. We couldn’t be more happy to have you as a celebrant. I am so grateful for your loving touch to make our day so very memorable. It truly shows another level of love we now have for one another ~ Krystal M. (Cumbalum, NSW)

We both absolutely LOVE the draft wedding ceremony. You worded everything perfectly and it truly reflects us and our love for each other, I wouldn’t want to change a thing. I’m so excited but nervous for the big day but I know you will look after us ~ Tara D. (Ballina, NSW)

Thank you for everything Lindy!!! For writing such a beautiful, personal ceremony, for keeping my now husband as calm as you could and for being so wonderful at your job. You really know your stuff and how to have a smooth and beautiful ceremony. I will always recommend you to everyone in the area as you are just such a kind, warm and loving person. I will never forget this day and the huge role you played in it. We can’t thank you enough ~ Tara M. (Ballina, NSW)

We were lucky enough to have Lindy as our celebrant. From our first to last meeting, Lindy was nothing but kind, approachable and professional. She provided us with very insightful tips and advice from her wealth of knowledge that only comes from being passionate about what you do and extensive experience in her industry. Lindy always had prompt and thorough communication. The reminder emails were fantastic, really helped keep things on track. Lindy ensured our ceremony ran smoothly, this was largely due to her exceptional communication and organisational skills. She customised our ceremony to make it “us”. It was a beautiful heartfelt ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for any more. Guests commented how nice the ceremony was. Thank you so much Lindy ~ Bec M. (Rous, NSW)

Lindy married my husband and I. I could not speak more highly of her. She was so professional and had uploaded all of the formalities/paperwork by 9am the following day. So many of our guests commented on how amazing and personal the ceremony Lindy wrote for us was. Absolutely would recommend Lindy to anyone. We were so so so happy with our choice of celebrant. She made us feel at ease so quickly and offered so much more than just writing a ceremony. She emailed confetti companies, contacted suppliers, suggested so many useful ideas and worked so amazingly well with our other vendors. Lindy, thank you so much!!! ~ Loren D. (Mt. Cotton, Qld.)

Lindy was an absolute professional and her attention to detail made our wedding day in September a memorable occasion. Lindy ensured the ceremony was truly centred on our wishes. She was constantly in touch and her communication skills throughout the process were superb. Our day was such a special and memorable occasion largely thanks to you Lindy! ~ Jo C & Boo H. (Goonellabah, NSW)

Lindy, thanks so much for your contribution to a very special day for us. From the planning where you walked us through everything, you helped us fill in all of the gaps that we hadn’t thought of and still provided options and flexibility for us to make it a completely personalised ceremony. It’s such an important part of our day and you took all of the stress out of it for us. While we had to work through lots of other aspects of our day, we had complete confidence in your abilities and you delivered the goods for us! It was a wonderful ceremony and would recommend you to anyone about to tie the knot ~ Tony B. (Wardell, NSW)

Lindy was so helpful & thoughtful in the lead up to our wedding. She gave us honest & positive advice on the finishing touches we were unsure of. Our ceremony rehearsal was light hearted & lots of fun & our ceremony was beautiful. Lindy thought of everything & was so understanding & flexible about our last minute changes. Lindy went above & beyond with follow ups & ensuring everything was taken care of. She is a beautiful soul & made our ceremony amazing!!! Thank you Lindy. I would recommend her to anyone & give her 5 stars ~ Lizzie H. (Brunswick Heads, NSW)

From the very first point of contact it was clear that Lindy was completely focused on making our wedding ceremony align with our special vision.  She supported us in defining the ceremony in a tranquil natural setting, meeting both the legal requirements as well as our emotional requirements.  Lindy was always attentive, good humoured, efficient and very well organized, making all aspects of the wedding preparation and the day itself flow seamlessly. We can fully recommend Lindy’s services as both a professional and personable celebrant. She helped to create a relaxed and personally unique wedding ceremony for us that was engaging and meaningful to everyone ~ John K. (Central Coast, NSW)

Lindy has been amazing through our whole journey. Her personalised ceremonies brought tears to everyone and her warm nature and compassion and just love for love made our whole experience with her so memorable. Highly recommend her services to anyone seeking a celebrant for their marriage! ~ Tilly S. (Alderley, Qld)

Lindy was AMAZING! My now husband and I got in touch with Lindy with very short notice to our elopement wedding date and she was incredibly helpful. She helped us every step of the way and made sure we were completely in the know about what to do. We met Lindy for the first time the day before the ceremony as we were travelling up to Byron Bay for our wedding and she made us feel instantly calm, relaxed and welcomed. We could not thank Lindy enough for the effort she put into making our day perfect. 100% recommend!! ~ Tara P. (Kurrajong, NSW)

How lucky was I to make contact & secure the services of Lindy Cooke through our Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants’ page. Lindy graciously took over yesterday’s wedding ceremony and I feel blessed my couple were in the hands of such a competent professional and wonderful celebrant 🧡🥂✨💫⭐️ ~ Shauna Rowe Marriage Celebrant (Gold Coast, Qld)
