Swami Yogamani Saraswati ♥
It began with a cup of tea…And then came a pouring of ideas. We arrived at our first meeting with Yogamani knowing very little of what we intended for our wedding but, after a refreshing pot of tea and a lengthy chat, we walked away having a firm idea about what to do, what could be achieved, and what to expect. Yet, above all, we were confident that we would be lovingly guided toward a blissful ceremony.
We had known all along that Yogamani was to be our celebrant. She is a wonderful friend to us and a reliable support person to our family. She knows us both very well and was able inspire us and to help bring to life our ideas for the ceremony. Yogamani made the process seem like less of a big task and, instead, nurture it as a flowing expression of love and commitment.
On the day of our wedding, Yogamani greeted us with a warm, beautiful smile and an elegance that gave the ceremony a relaxed, loving tone. Guests were drawn to her kind voice and clear recitation. It was an honour to have such a wonderful celebrant be there for us. We had rain, we had technical issues, but, praise the Gods, we had Yogamani! Our ceremony was everything that we dreamed it would be and shall forever be remembered as one of the happiest and most fun-filled days of our lives.
Yogamani is the celebrant that every couple hopes for. Not only is she the voice of the wedding party, while guiding them through the ceremony, Yogamani invokes courage, strength, and a calm assurance that everything be amazing.

Yogamani you are an incredible human. Thank you so much for helping us prepare for our day. You were a calming influence on me leading up to the day. You made it all feel simple and seamless with the information you provided with examples of ceremony styles and ways to tailor the day to be a perfect fit for us. You were eloquent in your delivery of how we came to be, and were a perfect fit for the two of us.

Max and I would both like to thank you for the AMAZING ceremony you did for us on our wedding day. We are both still blown away with how calmly everything went and how utterly perfect the ceremony was. You knew exactly what we wanted just from one meeting and from then on you kept in regular contact making sure everything was running smoothly. You are such an amazing person and the work that you do is inspiring. We are so glad we found you and had such a lovely lady marrying us on the most special day of our lives! We will remember it forever. Thank you so so much Yogamani. You are truly special. Any couple who has you marrying them are very lucky!

Yogamani completely exceeded our expectations as celebrant. We knew from the beginning of our first meeting that she was the only person for the role. Her balanced energy was perfect and the beautiful sanscrit mantra made our ceremony unforgettable.
She also helped us with many little details we would of other wise overlooked. We had more then one person tell us she was the best celebrant they had ever seen! She is awesome, it wouldn’t of been the same without her.
Upon reading Yogamani’s profile, I was captivated with the way she portrayed herself on the website. I was looking for someone who would work in line with some spiritual requirements I had for our wedding. Once we meet her, within 5 minutes we knew she was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. Both Billy and myself are very happy with the fun and spiritual way Yogamani conducted our wedding. We definitely acknowledge her as an both a caring individual and an exceptional celebrant. Thank you Yogamani

Yogamani really understood how family orientated we were. She based our ceremony around this which resulted in all we could have hoped for. She listened to our ideas and suggested improvements which made it all so easy. I would highly recommend Yogamani to anyone. No matter what your religion or spiritual beliefs, she will understand your needs fully and piece together a ceremony that will 100% suit the couple.

Swami Yogamani was a wonderful celebrant. She gave us the freedom to have the ceremony we want. She also gave us a lot of great material to start us off in creating our ceremony. She was open to ideas and did not try to put the ceremony into a one size fits all box. She was very friendly and easy to work with.
