Jacqueline showed great professionalism and experience throughout both the preparation and the ceremony. She listened carefully to our wishes of what we wanted and tailored her approach accordingly. The ceremony was conducted in English and Mandarin with her translating effortlessly to ensure everyone was included. All of our guests commented that she was an excellent celebrant and integrated well with the guests, remembering everyone's name, taking the time to engage in conversation and coordinating the ceremony in a relaxed yet very professional manner. The formalities such as certificate registration and up front organising were also done very promptly and thoroughly.

We could not have asked for more.
Chris & Jane
Jacqueline was wonderful and spontaneous during our wedding ceremony. She has an illuminating personality that certainly added to our wedding. As a celebrant she hosted a dual language ceremony, also threw in a few jokes to lighten up the mood. We are very happy to have chosen Jacqueline!
Eugene & Lulu
We wanted a simple garden ceremony in both English and Cantonese, and that's exactly what Jacqueline offered us – exceptional service given on Chinese New Year. Many thanks to Jacqueline, and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a bilingual celebrant.
James & Stella
We first discovered Jacqueline on YouTube and knew she was perfect for us. However, we ended up booking our ceremony with a company, when we requested a Mandarin and English speaking host, it just so happened that they recommended Jacqueline! Given her Taiwanese and Australian background, everything was fitting into place, it was destiny for her to be our celebrant.
Kieran & Mandy
Danica and I had an amazing day and we were so lucky to have you as our celebrant. Everything at the ceremony went exactly as we had hoped and our families and other guests enjoyed the style and professionalism you brought to our wedding. Thank you so much, Jacqueline. We could not be happier with the service you provided from start to finish.
Peter & Danica
Jacqueline you were absolutely wonderful in every regards. To be honest, I don't think there is any room for improvement. Your humour made the ceremony full of laughter and joy, everything just went smoothly. And then you even used your expertise in assisting with the group photo. Everyone adored you, Jacqueline. Thank you so much.
Joseph & Yvonne
Overall we felt Jacqueline did a great job throughout the entire process, from the initial meeting to the day itself. Guests feedback have been all positive.

I would highly recommend her as a marriage celebrant!

感谢 Jacqueline 为我和丈夫的婚礼见证。由于我的英语不好，需要中文和英语的双语服务，她驱车 2 小时到我婆婆家里为我们见证。我喜欢中国传统文化，选择在婚礼上穿着中国旗袍，并以红色为主调，Jacqueline 为了配合我和丈夫 两人不同国家的礼仪需求也选择了旗袍，但以白色的圣洁配合我们。我很感谢也很感动！

Many thanks for your wonderful professionalism! Everything went to plan very smoothly - thanks to your considerable efforts behind the scenes... Your good humour and thoughtful touches were much appreciated! The bi-lingual ceremony was perfectly paced, and it was very well received by my English-speaking family and friends who now have a better appreciation of the beauty of the Chinese language.

Andrea & Jimmy
We would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping us getting our wedding ceremony together. You were fantastic both as an organiser (and keeping us organised) prior to the big day and as an MC/celebrant on the day. Furthermore, our family and friends LOVED how vibrant and professional you were. they also LOVED your beautiful voice and sense of humour. I don't think our day would have been as fun and run as smoothly if we didn't have you as our celebrant!!! :)
Alice & Lawrence
We're so happy that we chose Jacqueline as our wedding celebrant. Being based in Hong Kong we never spoke to her or even saw her until one week before the wedding, however she really took the time to get to know us through by communicating with us via ongoing emails. Her response time to my emails was very prompt and her replies were of extremely high standard. Jacqueline has excellent insight, is fun and easy-going, and has a beautiful way with words.
Kenneth & Tracy
Jacqueline is very professional and nice to deal with. Not only she puts lots of efforts into her work, she also thinks for her clients (us) and did everything she could to ensure that everything goes smoothly and perfectly!
Ke & Ivy
Thank you so much Jacqueline for preparing such a wonderful wedding ceremony for us. The guests were very impressed with our bilingual approach! Thanks so much for all your help during the wedding planning - our situation wasn't straight forward, but you made everything really easy. You always replied to our emails in a prompt manner, and were always so helpful, friendly and professional. We can't thank you enough for making our dream wedding a reality. We will definitively recommend your service to all our friends.
Jason & Anna
I am very happy with Hsiao-Hui Yen's service as a celebrant. I especially liked that she gave me many options to mix and match the script, and that she dressed/presented herself very nicely on the day of ceremony. Her language skills for both English and Chinese are excellent. The script is well pronounced and well written for both Chinese and English. I like the fact that she made an effort to fill in the silence before the bride arrived.
Jack & Vicky
We are happy to have you as our celebrant. You provide a perfect service to us and our families and friends. Thanks for your consideration about the language requirement of our guests, about every single detail of our ceremony and many great suggestions to us. If we have friends who are about to have weddings in Sydney, we'd love to recommend you to them.
Tracy & William
Jacqueline was very helpful and friendly, and her warm sense of humour put us both at ease. She very kindly conducted the wedding in two languages so that everyone could understand.
Annie & Glenn
Jacqueline did our wedding, and she was fantastic. Just let her know what you are after in your ceremony and she will work with you to create it, that's her whole approach. We cut great lots out of the original ceremony suggestion and changed lots of stuff, and she was totally fine with us chopping and changing to suit us. Jacqueline is a nice lady and highly recommended.
Gina & David
Jacqueline, we were so pleased & satisfied with everything you did for our special day. You were truly the perfect person for your role and your guidance & assistance were invaluable. We can not thank you enough for the beautiful service you provided for us. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. Thank you! Thank you and Thank you!
Calvin & Jing
Everything is just perfect on the ceremony. Hsiao-Hui Yen is doing her best, and I am very glad that we invited her to be our registered marriage celebrant.
