It was great that she could travel to Melbourne for our special day.Hazel has a very professional and personal approach to the organisation of the day, helps guide you,makes sure the day runs smoothly and keeps you at ease. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant and perfect day. We highly recommend her services. Thank you again so much Hazel, we had the best day to start our married life.
Kylie & Phillip (2018)
Thank you Hazel for being exactly what a Civil Celebrant should be. Instantly your were open, warm and a friendly demeanour was present, making us feel comfortable and confident in our choice to have you officiate our special day. I especially loved the text message you sent to me the day before, which made me feel reassured that our intimate elopement was just as significant and special as any big lavish wedding. You made the ceremony perfect, the signing of the paperwork a breeze and we couldn’t be more thankful.
Rhi & Kev (2018)
Hazel!!!!!! There are no words to describe this lady. She did an unbelievable job with what information we gave her to make our own ceremony. Not only did she make it memorable for us with including my husband’s grandparents who sadly are no longer with us here in the physical world, she made it quirky as well adding the rain factor into our vows since it was raining on our wedding day. If you want a caring, kind hearted wedding celebrant, then look no further then this beautiful lovely woman Hazel Balales. She is very highly recommended. *Thank you Hazel xxxx*

Renae & Adam (2019)
Hazel is such an incredible celebrant and we loved having her included in our wedding. Leading up to the wedding she was always on top of every little detail that needed to be done and made sure everything was organised. She took the time to carefully construct our ceremony and made it individual by writing an introduction for us after meeting and getting to know us and our story. Hazel made our ceremony feel professional but also brought so much heart, joy and happiness on the day. We would highly recommend her 🙂
