The hydrangeas alongside the church are part of the original garden and the blue blooms of summer are heavenly. Gardenias are planted all around the circular driveway and frangipani scattered throughout the garden

Mark & Patrizia

“We had a very clear idea of our ceremony (short and sweet) and thanks to Christine, our vision became a reality. Always the utmost professional, Christine was always a wonderful calming influence in the preparation stages and on the wedding day. We feel so blessed that Christine was our celebrant.”

Kenneth and Caitlin Colón

"Christine's church proved to be a great venue for our small rural wedding. The church and its antique charm was perfect for our low key ceremony and the beautiful flowers in the garden outside the church and the macadamia trees were the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. The newly built reception hall provided lots of space for all our guests and had great views of the church grounds and macadamia plantation. Overall the location was perfect and Christine went over and above to make sure our wedding day was perfect."
