Claire Jones provided an excellent, Katherine & Tomprofessional service, adding an element of fun, making the day truly special for both of us. We really did appreciate her professionalism, organisation of the ceremony, and all of the hard work. We couldn’t have asked for a better Celebrant and would recommend Claire to anybody. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

I write to warmly support the application of Mrs Claire Jones to be registered as a Marriage Celebrant, believing this to be of particular benefit for the community and of the many personal networks associated with the other services and activities in which she is involved. I have known Claire for many years in a number of different settings (administration, community boards, social and church) and have particularly valued her initiatives to serve people and the relational strengths she brings to that service. Her work as a Staff Support Person continues to enhance those strengths. She has lived in Hamilton for a considerable period of time and has nurtured relationships across a wide spectrum of society and is well liked across that diversity. Claire is typically accepting of others, responsive to their needs and non-judgemental. It is not surprising that she receives requests to officiate at weddings. I have also observed Claire on a number of occasions when she has had to speak publically and she communicates clearly and confidently. Her organisational skills have also enabled her to conduct such occasions in a way that is orderly and appreciated. Those service qualities and strong relational connections would mean that she is ideally suited to work as a Marriage Celebrant. She would provide a high quality service as a Celebrant – something of real importance given the significance of the ceremony when a couple get married. Therefore I very warmly support her application.
