'Both my husband and I always envisaged marrying abroad and we stumbled across Maple Leaf Weddings online and it seemed to fit the bill. Neither of us were particularly keen on having the idealistic 'white wedding' and the pictures online looked beautiful and it just took our fancy. After the initial contact to enquire, Pennie contacted us and she kept us informed the whole way along. We were fully informed and appropriately guided on what paperwork needed to be done by when. Choices were made with regard to flowers and vows by email which was really easy, I also requested someone to do our make-up and hair, on the day, which again was not a bother to Pennie and she found someone that they had previously used who came to us in the hotel and were extremely reasonably priced considering. When we arrived at our hotel, Pennie and her husband met us the day before adding to the personal service that she provides. They took us to the local town hall which was a legal requirement but nothing was too much effort. On the day of our wedding, we had a limousine which was a surprise to us but very well received by our young children, a real bonus. Pennie and her husband attended our wedding which I believe was a requirement to act as a witnesses but we were more than happy for their attendance as it seemed appropriate considering she had been with us from the start. The photographer and registrar were also brilliant, very flexible and just seemed to know exactly what we wanted. I couldn't recommend the service enough, the personal touch, the price and the service were second to none. A great day in a fabulous country. We would thoroughly recommend this service'.

Where do I begin to tell you about the most specail and perfect day when Maple Leaf Weddings arranged our wedding vow renewal at Valley Croft. We were the very lucky winners of the Maple Leaf wedding competition. It was a wonderful whirlwind of emails and phone calls when Pennie would ask us how we wanted our ceremony to be. She asked us what we wanted for our day, she sent beautiful photos of the venue, the cake, the flowers. She sent examples of words we may want to say and asked us what music we wanted. I felt so happy she listened to every detail and I never wanted the preparations to end. Even down to how we spent our time after our vow renewal, she organised a barbecue of bison burgers and other Canadian treats which we sat on the porch together and shared. The morning of the wedding a wonderful lady came in and made us a beautiful breakfast, then we started to get ready. Luckily Pennie was there to help as at one point I couldn't get my zip to work! But with all gentleness and calmness she sorted it perfectly. I then realised I didn't have anything borrowed and she put her own wedding ring on my finger for the ceremony where would you find such a wonderful person who did everything and more to make sure our day was perfect. Our lady who conducted the service was Marie she was so kind and helped us understand the true meaning of the ceremony. We renewed our vows together in a little glade lit by candles and exchanged our special words to each other. There were tears and just an incredible feeling of love. All our beautiful moments were captured by the sweetest most professional photographer called Jayme, even now most nights I just flick through them and relive our wonderful special day. We danced our first dance in a beautiful traditional Canadian barn it was so totally perfect. It was the most special day for us both and made us realise how important renewing our vows meant to us both.

"What a wonderful winter wonderland wedding we had in Canada! It was just great and all made possible by Maple Leaf Weddings. We cannot rate them highly enough. Pennie, our wedding planner, took care of everything - from arranging our wedding certificate, to buttonholes, music, a limousine and a wonderful reverend who married us in the most beautiful setting imaginable. A huge thank you to Maple Leaf Weddings, and Pennie, for providing such an excellent, fun and friendly service". Paul & Mike

Joanne & Lee
Joanne says, "Our wedding day was so special and memorable, thanks to Pennie and all her hard work. Pennie and I had never met until the day before our wedding, and thanks to her, our day was all we dreamed of and more. The flowers were exactly what we wanted and the photo charms of Lee's late Mum reduced him to tears. We had a wonderful reception, horse and carriage, and so much more, I could go on forever and really cannot thank Pennie enough."
