  • Our most sincere THANKS and appreciation for presiding over our wedding on 12 March 2015.

    The ceremony was so beautiful and moving, and offered a true reflection of what a marriage is. It was the most perfect day for us, and you made it all the more special with your truly moving ceremony. The gift of a laminated copy of our vows and the promises we made to each other was so unexpected and made us feel even more special.

    You are truly a wonderful Minister and it was an honour for us to have you marry us.

  • Thank you Revd. Brits for a wonderful wedding ceremony, conducted on March 18th, 2015 at Haute Cabriere in Franschhoek.

    We arranged this with you sometime back via emails from Australia and found the direction and counselling that you gave us to be thorough and moving. On arrival in South Africa we met and presented all the required documents, went over the ceremony and on the day it was a truly marvellous and moving experience, one that we would love to have an action replay of!

    This was the feedback from all the family and guests that attended - for us in particular the inclusion of the Sands aspect was particularly relevant, together with some other hidden gems that you included! We felt very special and blessed that day - once again thank you!

  • Thank you so very, very much for performing our beautiful marriage ceremony on Dolphin Beach last week. It was so special, loving and personal I was moved to tears. Your moving message, touching Gift of the Hands and Unity Sands Ceremonies made our day perfect.

    Thank you, Lizelle & Allan

  • Dear Rev Brits

    The ceremony you performed for Louise and myself was a wonderful surprise gift. It was personal, inclusive of our families, and unlike anything we had seen or heard of before.

    I can tell you that all of the family got choked up at some stage, and your moving vows and manner inspired some of the younger crowd to consider marriage, even the most anti-marriage ones.

    Thanks again and all the best.

    Your passion for what you do radiates through your humor and banter. You exceeded our expectations, never did we imagine our special day to have so much meaning and symbolism.

    You came into our lives as a stranger, yet gave us the most beautiful personal gift anyone has ever given us. We thank you forever.

  • Xiaoyi and I want to thank you for everything that you did to make this the memorable day that it will always be for us. We both enjoyed the service very much indeed and your professional but very human delivery made a fantastic impression on Brian and Lindsey too.

    We are so happy that we found you and that our first choice was the right one!

  • We can't wait for our wedding in Franschhoek on 7/4. Having read through your bio - we love your style and humor and especially your non denominational approach to the truly meaningful things and would be delighted and honoured to have you conduct our ceremony. My fiancé Simon has sent an enquiry and we hope to hear from you soon.

  • It was a lovely ceremony and all our family and friends also seem to have enjoyed the day. I really enjoyed Rev. Brits and felt so comfortable in his presence. His service was incredibly heartfelt and left us with some good thoughts and feelings.

    I would just like to thank you both for everything you did to make my daughter’s day so special.

    Your service on the whole has been outstanding and believe it or not, also so refreshing. It’s harder to find such genuine and authentic people in this day and age.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
