After seeing Maxine at a friend's wedding we knew she was the right celebrant for us ans she didn't disappoint!
Maxine's flexibility and adaptability with the ceremony content and flow meant that it all ran exactly as we imagined. She was organised, reliable and efficient in getting back to us but also relaxed and so easy to deal with.
Most importantly, she is such a fun, kind and warm person who was the perfect celebrant to have up there with us for the big moment, keeping everything calm and running seamlessly!
We can't thank you enough Maxine or recommend you any more highly!

I actually met Maxine by chance. We had already lined up another celebrant but just didn't feel a connection with this other celebrant. I was instantly drawn to Maxine and when she told me that she was a celebrant - my decision was made.
Maxine has such a calming presence and a beautiful way with words. She is immaculately presented and has the most beautiful aura. As a couple, we bonded with Maxine immediately. She has such a genuine soul.
Maxine made things easy and fun and we could not recommend her enough. Thankyou Maxine for being such an integral part of our special day. Wouldn't have had it any other way.

Aleasha & Andrew Bartlett
Married: Brim Brim Gardens
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.

The Sand Ceremony you suggested was a perfect way to blend our family together . Your advise and suggestions were invaluable in making our day stress free and simply beautiful, exactly what we wanted!
On a side note, was really lovely to have a celebrant who we could clearly see, loves what they do and loves being part of bringing two people who love each other together in marriage.

Anthony Henshaw & Katherine Lentsment
Married: Halls Gap,
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.
