Married: Brim Brim Gardens 11th February 2012
Friendly, approachable and professional with a personal touch. Sums up our experience.
The moment we meet Maxine we knew she was the right person to take us on this incredible journey. We spoke about the wedding preparation and what as a couple we wanted. Maxine listened, interpreted our needs and put together a ceremony that really reflected us as two people becoming a couple.
Maxine discussed all the legal requirements and parts of the ceremony that needed to be by law conducted, but allowed us to add our own personal moments as well, that really enhanced our ceremony and our experience. All contact by telephone was quickly followed up on by email ensuring we were all on the same page and had records of all changes or plans. The rehersal ensured our family also got to meet Maxine which really helped on the wedding day ensuring that everyone close to us knew the order of events and ensured a smooth run to the day ( other than the rain and last minute change of location ).
Maxine - Thankyou for your time, support, co-operation and care that you put into our ceremony. You helped make our day so unique and special. Andrew and I are extremely grateful, you were a treasured part of our wedding day. May you continue to brighten up many more days like you did ours.

Maxine was the Celebrant for our beach wedding at Port Fairy. Throughout the entire preparation process and on the day Maxine was very informative, friendly and reassuring.
We will definitely recommend Maxine to others. Nothing was a hassle for Maxine. She even arrived one hour early for the ceremony and set up the sand ceremony and made sure everything and everyone was as it should be. Her warm, friendly nature along with the fact that she loves being a celebrant makes her stand out from the rest.

Anthony Henshaw & Katherine Lentsment
Married: Halls Gap, 6th April 2013
Maxine Linane is a brilliant celebrant, highly organised and quite affordable.
The contact between parties before our wedding was excellent and hastily replied to.
Her range of different vows and readings were plentiful and really spoke to our hearts.
We would recommend her to anyone around the area especially anyone on a tight budget.
