Thank you so so so much for yesterday.
You are such an incredible person and I could not think of a better person to marry us. We adore you and so did our family and friends.
It felt like we had known you for years too!
It was fate that you were meant to marry us!
Thank you once again.
We’re going to recommend you to absolutely everybody!
💜💜💜 Rhi & Kael Taylor - 09.08.2018
Thank you Kate.
You were excellent. We will highly recommend you to anyone wanting a great celebrant.
Matt & Mei-Yin Gorringe - 04.05.2019
Kate was an amazing celebrant and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Kate listens to what you want and personalises the ceremony to your liking. Kate is friendly and caring, helping with wording and preparation along the way.
Jess & Jase McIvor - 20.07.19
Kate was our celebrant for our wedding last weekend.
From beginning to end, she was a delight to work with. No changes were too hard, she was willing to do whatever we wanted and include any special considerations.
Kate’s communication was professional yet it felt like you were just talking to an old friend.
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a celebrant 💕
Harley & Sean Brown - 03.08.19
Kate was helpful, organised and experienced. She definitely was the right person to choose!
Mil & Jérôme Gully - 16.08.2019
5 + stars!! If you’re looking for the perfect Celebrant, Kate is your lady! She’s fun, warm and welcoming. She made our wedding day extra special and we were so grateful for having her with us through the process.
Ian & Marty Alexander - 31.08.19
Everything was good from the beginning when Kate would talk on facetime since we were interstate. One of the good things about her compared to everyone else was that she would go out of her way to offer to find all the hire and helped us to book that all to make it easier for us! She would always come back to us with friendly chat, was very organised and made the whole process easy. That included the beach permit, doing all the paperwork, bringing in her own speaker, the music, her own desk, and all the hire for the entire ceremony including an arbour as well!
Belinda & Arge Papasoulis - 07.09.19
Kate was amazing during the wedding planning and on the day itself. Professional and funny wrapped into one. Thanks for an amazing ceremony.
Sarah & Chris Riley - 21.09.19

Rion & Trent Thorburn - 26.09.19
Kate, thank you so much for being the wonderful Celebrant you are. From the phone calls full of positivity to your beautiful smile and sense of humour. We enjoyed the day with you marrying us immensely.
We couldn’t have dreamed of how relaxed, chilled and special you made our day and honestly, that was because of you ❤️
From one happily married couple to Cairns’ best Celebrant. 💕
Celeste & Matthew Beves-Brown - 02.10.19
Kate is the kind of person you end up being friends with forever. She is caring and selfless and so helpful. She truly made our day amazing and without her it would never have happened x thank you so much Kate
Letisha & Max Gibbons - 25.10.19
Kate was so fantastic, she personalised our ceremony to suit us and made everyone feel so relaxed, like we were old friends. Cannot recommend her services highly enough.
Tenaya & Andrew Timbrell - 26.10.19
Kate is a professional woman, who provided a beautiful, ceremony for us. Kate knew the words to reference our late grandparents and touched the hearts of our guests. To find someone as charismatic as Kate I truely felt honoured to have her as my celebrant. I couldn’t recommend Kate highly enough.
Beth & Jamie Skuthorpe
Kate is a wonderful, caring, thoughtful and very organised person.
She’s charming, witty and funny all the while remaining very professional throughout the process.
We couldn’t have chose anyone better to be our celebrant, she was the perfect fit for us and highly recommend her to anyone.
Adrian & Brandi Scott
Kate's friendly approach put all nerves aside leading up to and including our wedding day even selecting a beautiful location within Port Douglas.
We would recommend her to anyone who is wishing to be married in the Port Douglas area.
Post wedding, she also helped us out with booking tours for us with her knowledge and connections of Port Douglas.
Sharon & Kym Hankins
Kate was everything we hoped our celebrant would be. The perfect balance of personal and professional. She genuinely cared about our special day and made everyone feel so comfortable and involved. We would recommend Kate as a celebrant to anyone without hesitation.
Rachael and Jake Lyle - 02.02.2020
OMG Kate made our ceremony absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. She made us feel so comfortable as we had no idea what we were doing, haha.
I would recommend Kate to everyone I know and beyond.
Thank you for making our ceremony the best it could of been x
Kassie & Luke Reyment - 14.03.2020
Kate is simply amazing! Even in these trying times (Covid-19), she made our ceremony so smooth and memorable.
We had some of our guests on Skype and she made them all feel so included all night.
She was always there for any questions and changes and was an absolute dream to work with. Could not have done it without her!!
Charlotte & Cameron Wilson - 18.03.2020
Absolutely amazing with everything that is happening in our world
Kate was more than happy to accommodate our changes without a worry.
Such a bubbly, vibrant, wonderful person, we truly picked the best Celebrant by far !!!!!
Brenda & Paul Brown - 29.03.2020
Kate made our day unique and stress free.
She allowed us to tailor our day as much as possible to suit us.
She brought a lovely, positive energy to the ceremony and we could not have imagined doing it any other way, or with any other person.
Thank you for helping us make our day so special Kate.
Love, Tennille and Dion - 03.06.2020
We had such a wonderful experience with Kate! She has such a bright and sparkly personality; she had us both at ease and laughing the very first time we met. After that first meeting, everything fell into place so easily and we knew that Kate was the perfect fit for us.
Due to Covid restrictions we had to drastically change our wedding plans with very little notice and Kate was there to support us every step of the way. She was always ready with the answers to all our questions and kept us calm right up until we had said our "I do's".
Thank you so much, Kate!
Mr & Mrs Haereroa (aka Brodie & Lee)
We booked Kate with short notice due to everything happening in the world and wow we were not disappointed! Kate did an outstanding job and had excellent ideas on how to make our ceremony unique. We felt as though we had known her for years, such a bubbly wonderful person!
A huge thank you for making our day magical ❤️
Brianna & Zach Spinella ~ 04.07.2020
Kate married me and my husband just last week and I can't explain how happy I am with choosing her! Because of the pandemic we had to make a lot of changes, including venue which made it so much further from where she lives. Never once did she seem put out by changes, she was SO accommodating. I felt so so confident that she had everything under control (which is hard for me haha). She was so happy and so professional. Would 100% recommend. She even gave us a little gift and just loved her ❤️
Beth & Thomas Haupt ~ 31.07.2020
Kate was absolutely incredible at our ceremony. She made sure it was short & sweet but still very much what we wanted. She popped in to check if I was okay & helped us along the way during the whole ceremony. She is an absolutely amazing, bright & caring woman. 10/10 🌟
Highly recommend Kate! 💕
Grace & Ben Arend ~ 15.08.2020
I would recommend this gem of a lady more than words can explain. Kate made our day so special and so easy. It truly was the best day.
Thank you once again Kate from your personality to how amazing and professional you are. Wow is all I can say. From the get go, Kate was so comforting and made sure everything was perfect. She went above and beyond to make sure things were no fuss and everything was grand. Thank you so much Kate, our day wouldn’t have been as special without you in it. ❤
Ellie & Kyle Breen ~ 09.08.2020
I first met Kate at the Cairns Bridal Expo early in the year. She was so easy to speak to and we related to her so quickly, it was a no brainer for us to contact Kate to be our Celebrant. Nothing was too hard. Kate made everything so easy. From start to finish, Kate made us feel so comfortable and even had tissues ready on the day. Thank you Kate for making our special day even more special. ❤️
Nicole & Russell Leigh ~ 29.08.2020
Kate did an amazing job with my wedding, she actually cares about what you want and goes above and beyond to help with anything you are unsure of. Would definitely recommend her if you want a fantastic wedding 😊😁
Tash & Matt Hickling ~ 10.10.2020
Kate was our celebrant for our backyard wedding and she was amazing! We only wanted a short ceremony and she was more than happy to accommodate - it was a beautiful day.
She is very professional and goes above and beyond to meet your needs. Couldn’t recommend her more ❤️
Dan & Karli Davie ~ 10.10.2020
Kate goes above & beyond to make sure your day is as special as it can be, she is honestly AMAZING in every way (everyone loved her) Kate personalised our cermony perfectly to suit us and and made us feel at ease from start to finish, we felt as if we have know her for years! Kate is more than a celebrant, she is the kind of person that you end up being friend with forever. We chose the best & would recommend her in a heartbeat ❤ The Stephensons - Tara, Jake & boys x ~ 15.10.2020
Kate is AMAZING. She was the perfect celebrant for us. She’s fun, very organised, helpful and most importantly she continued to check in with us every step of the way.
Our original wedding plans were affected by covid but Kate was very accomodating to all our changes.
Couldn’t recommend Kate highly enough.
Carly & Nathan Pappas ~ 31.10.2020
From our first conversation with Kate we were set on having her as our celebrant – we just clicked so well! Kate was a dream to work with particularly during the chaos of planning a destination wedding in 2020. She was so approachable and flexible throughout our constant changing plans, even when we threw our original Port Douglas plans out the window and decided to pivot to a small wedding here in Brisbane. I knew Kate got our vibe and the ceremony would be great, but on the day she absolutely exceeded our expectations. Our ceremony was relaxed, personal and filled with love thanks to Kate. She guided us through the process and made everything so easy. We cannot recommend Kate more and are so grateful to have had her in our corner!
John & Teagan Couper ~ 21.11.2020
Kate, you were amazing & the best celebrant for Tony & I. You are so organised, fun & you took the stress off me & organised everything for us. Our wedding plans were effected by Covid, but you made our day so extra special. Thank you 🙏🏻 so very much. You’re the best 🥰
Melanie & Tonly Groeneveld ~ 30.12.2020
Where do I begin? Working with Kate for our wedding day was the absolute BEST! She’s super organised, so easy to work with and NO stress... winning!!! You definitely won’t be disappointed if you choose her as your celebrant!
Natalie & Andrew Parkinson ~ 17.04.2021
Kate, you are the most beautiful, fun loving, happy, bubbly, strong woman I have ever met!
When we first spoke with Kate over the phone we immediately knew she was the person who we wanted to marry us. If you want someone who will keep everyone in check, while having heaps of fun and making you feel completely loved and comfortable the whole time Kate is the celebrant you need! My guests loved her, my other vendors loved her, and we have a friend for life in her! Blessings by Kate Bellman is the best FNQ has to offer! ❤️💍
Tim & Beth Lamb ~ 30.04.2021
We cannot recommend Kate enough!
After our original celebrant cancelled on us in early 2020, we were in quite a pickle finding a marriage celebrant.
With all the Covid weddings being rebooked and limited availability everywhere, we were starting to feel the pressure and the stress. We rang Kate and she answered immediately and booked us in! We are still very grateful and couldn’t have picked a better celebrant even if we tried.
We were so glad our original celebrant cancelled.
One thing we love about Kate is that she is so down to earth and an absolutely beautiful soul.
After meeting her I knew that she was the one to marry my husband and I!
We honestly can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a celebrant.
She goes above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect and just the way you want it.
Thank you so much Kate for everything! ❤️❤️
Brad & Kaiti Penman ~ 08.05.2021
I can’t begin to explain how amazing Kate is. Kate recently married my partner of 16 years and myself on 22nd May 2021. The day did not go as planned, not only did we have a last minute ceremony venue change due to bad weather, we also lost our MC for the night last minute. Kate handled the changes so well and also stepped up to host our reception as our MC for the evening. Kate did an outstanding job and kept everything rolling along smoothly, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Kate’s warm, friendly and easy going nature made her the perfect fit for our wedding and I can’t recommend her enough.
Faron & Bruce ~ 22.05.2021
There are no words that accurately describe the special role Kate had in our wedding day. She is warm, passionate and incredibly professional, and allowed us to create a wedding ceremony that suited us perfectly. She was always available to assist with timeline/vows/legal issues that may arise. Most importantly, Kate made an effort to not only get to know us, but also our family and friends that she met at various times in the lead up to the wedding. When the big day came, it felt like a long-time friend was marrying us. I am so glad we chose Kate as our celebrant, and would recommend her to friends who are looking for a celebrant in the future.
Ally & Sam Pates ~ 02.07.2021
What a celebrant!!!
Kate made our marriage ceremony just what we wanted, beautiful and simple. Personalising our ceremony to meet our needs was no problem for her.
Kate even helped my husband write his vows!
If you are looking for a celebrant who is beautiful, down to earth, relaxed and makes it all about you... Kate is the one for you.
Can't thank you enough Kate Bellman!!!
We adore you ❤️❤️❤️
Rowie & Trent Ogden ~ 03.07.2021
I can not recommend Kate enough!
She made the whole process so easy and stress free!
We wanted a relaxed casual ceremony and she made sure it was perfect for us!! She even held our crying toddler while we shared our first kiss 🤣.
We had the most incredible day of our lives and we are so happy we chose Kate to be a part of it! 🥰🥰
Ben & Hollie Odell ~ 09.07.2021
We can’t recommend Kate enough, not only did she marry us she also mc’d our reception. Her service is second to none, when we touched base with her we lived over 800kms away and needed to do all of the preliminary paper work and meetings online which was so easy for Kate, she made us feel calm and at ease with the whole process. This easy going attitude then blossomed into a beautiful friendship over the months of back and forth emails and Facebook messages before our wedding, on the day it was as if Kate was just an Aunty that had stepped in to make our love for each other official. Kate accommodated for our toddler being present at the ceremony and made the whole day a family event! We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day! Thanks again Kate!!!
Tiff & Tama Lennon ~ 24.07.2021
We cannot recommend Kate enough. We wanted a casual ceremony and Kate made the whole process run stress free for us to enjoy our special day.
Jahna & Peter Miles ~ 31.07.2021
From the moment my partner and I met Kate we felt instantly calm and comfortable, by the end of our meeting with her we felt like we’d known her for ages! She was exactly the kind of person we knew we wanted to marry us.
Kate was calm, supportive and ready to change plans last minute if Covid threw us a curve ball.
She goes above and beyond and we will forever be grateful for her. We can’t recommend her enough.
Thanks for being a part of our special day!! You’re amazing 💕 Court and Josh McLeish ~ 07.08.2021
Kate was amazing. Thanks to Covid19 restrictions, our plans had to change and Kate was supportive throughout the whole process.
She was available to chat whenever I needed help or had questions.
She’s a happy, positive person that is perfect for taking care of wedding day nerves too. 💖
Kelly & Jayson McQueen ~ 14.08.2021
We got married yesterday with Kate as our celebrant, we couldn’t recommend Kate enough! She went above and beyond with everything, from the very first moment we spoke, a year before our wedding. We felt instantly comfortable.
Kate, we cannot thank you enough for making our day so easy. Your beautiful, bright personality made us feel 100% at ease and made our day everything we wanted and more.
Chloe & David Kalbfell ~ 25.08.2021
Kate went above and beyond for our special day, we could not recommend her enough. Her bubbly personality is infectious, we honestly could not have done it without her!
Nikki & Justin Barnwell ~ 11.09.2021
Thank you so much for everything you did and getting Reece through his vows 😂
You did an amazing job. It was beautiful. Frank loved the hand fasting ceremony, it made his and Reece’s day.
I would highly recommend you any day xx
Reece & Kirsty Bass ~ 18.09.2021
If you're looking for a fun, bright and bubbly celebrant, Kate is the lady for you. From the moment we met Kate we instantly clicked, and left feeling like we had known her for years. She made the effort to form a relationship with us in the year leading up to our wedding and was absolutely lovely and helpful in all aspects.
As our MC, she brought an incredible vibe and energy to our entire wedding, we can't recommend her enough!
Andrew & Jazie Monttinen ~ 09.10.2021
Kate was absolutely AMAZING! We had a little goth wedding, and Kate went above and beyond to dress up and customise the ceremony! She has a lovely, bubbly personality and we cannot thank her enough! 🥰🥰
Starleane & Anthony Locke ~ 01.10.2021
We first met Kate at the wedding expo in Cairns. Her warm and friendly personality warmed us as we entered the expo. On our day, Kate was organised and helped take away most of the nerves. We knew nothing would go wrong when Kate arrived. Her bubbly nature made the ceremony more light hearted and fun.
We highly recommend Kate for any ceremony. She’s one you can definitely count on.
Catrina & Scott Rolley ~ 16.10.2021
Kate was exceptional with her approach and help in all aspects of our elopement, could not have done it without her. Would highly recommend Kate to everyone who is planning their big day.
Port Douglas at sunrise was outstanding at the lookout overlooking the ocean.
Thank you Kate. Charmain and Neil Fitzsimmons ~ 21.10.2021
Kate was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING from the moment we met her to the moment she left the ceremony. She was very professional and understanding but also very open minded which we needed with our lot!! She was great with my 3 year old son as well which is a huge plus! I don’t think our wedding would have been the same without her.I’d recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional but extremely fun celebrant!! Thanks soo much Kate xx
Tess & Greg Suckling ~ 11.10.2021
Not only did Kate fly thousands of kms to share our day with us but she pulled together the amazing night that followed the ceremony
Kate has gone above and beyond for us both and for this we are beyond grateful. We couldn’t recommend a better celebrant - no matter where you happen to live.
Sue & Cornell Steyn ~ 11.11.2021
From the moment we met Kate we knew she was meant to be our celebrant. Her fun and bubbly personality was great. She knew what we wanted and gave us exactly that ❤️
Ellie & Arjay Ackland ~ 20.11.2021
Kate is amazing and she was a perfect fit for us and our family.
She is friendly, bubbly and a genuine soul.
Throughout the whole experience she was easy to contact and kept in contact with us, answering all our questions.
She personalised the ceremony to exactly what we wanted and it was perfect.
Kate became part of our family, celebrating with us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Kirsty and Allan McKean ~ 11.12.21
There’s not enough kind words to adequately describe our experience with Kate.
From our first phone call with her to discuss being our celebrant for our wedding, she immediately put us at ease allowing us so much input for what we wanted in a ceremony.
She then travelled 2hrs away from where she lives to catch up over lunch and discuss finer details, and finally on the day everything ran better than we could’ve even imagined.
I would recommend her for anyone looking for a fun, light-hearted and serious-when needs to be celebrant. Particular thank you for also using a loud “teachers” voice to round up our excited families for group photos following our ceremony. Above and beyond. Thank you Kate.
Hayley & Jared Spokes ~ 08.01.2022
Kate was amazing from start to finish.
Kate is highly organised and made everything feel so easy for us. She made us feel so relaxed with the whole process with her calming and considerate nature.
We are so grateful to have had Kate help us on our special day.
We cannot recommend Kate enough.
Thank you for making our day so special.
Tom and Jamie Rowe ~ 05.02.2022
Kate was a dream to work with from the moment we first met to our final goodbyes uttered on the wedding night.
her personable and easy—going personality made us instantly comfortable and it was clear that she was invested in giving us a truly unique and memorable wedding.
We couldn’t have asked for a better Celebrant and MC, she went above and beyond to make our night special (held babies, entertained toddlers and read speeches from family unable to attend).
I don’t think anyone who has met Kate has a bad word to say about her. So if you’re looking for someone who loves love and is a true professional, don’t look any further than Kate.
Peta & Stefan Kopon ~ 13.03.2022
Kate was amazing from day one! She’s so organised and definitely puts all the legal stuff to ease. She was such a help on our wedding day when rain ruined our initial plans. She definitely took the stress off with her commitment to making sure everything ran smoothly.
She definitely goes above and beyond and we are so appreciative of her work.
We would definitely recommend to anyone still on the hunt for a Celebrant.
Lots of love, Samantha and Jerrod Kimber ~ 26.03.2022
After choosing to elope in Port Douglas with a handful of family, Kate gave my husband and I the most personal, kind and genuine support we could have hoped for.
Kate truly is what we needed; someone to nudge us in the right direction at times, feel like we should celebrate ourselves and created a beautiful ceremony for us at dawn as the sun rose.
Thank you so much Kate, you made everything feel easy and never a problem and thanks for keeping the rains away 😊
Adam and Paul ~ 13.04.2022
