"The Naming Day for Grace will always be in our hearts. We were amazed that Grace listened to your words and responded to you in baby babble. She knew exactly what you were saying Rosemary! It was a great way for family and friends to become a part of someone special. Thank you Rosemary."
William, Mardi and Grace
“We just wanted to say thank you again for a terrific day. We really
couldn't have asked for a more perfect way to get married. You were
just amazing ... both of us rather like something different and this
was so appropriate. Thanks to you and Sydney Helicopters.”
Simon & Liane
“Thank you for making the marriage of our daughter, such a wonderfully
happy occasion yesterday. We were amazed to see Sydney in all her glory

a beautiful ceremony that intertwined our two cultures but also conducted
it with poise and grace."

"Rosemary, it has been an honour and a joy to capture on canvas these
images from your amazing career. A career that continues to go from
strength to strength. Chapel in the Sky is testimony to the fact that
for you the sky is NEVER the limit! Every success with this and your
Steve Leadenham, Transport Artist
As the first female professional pilot to gain employment in Australia, I encountered and overcame many hurdles from those who believed a woman’s only place was in the kitchen ! Rosemary Arnold also encountered the very same hurdles when she became the first female helicopter pilot in Australia.
Rosemary has been an inspiration to many Australians in not only fighting the establishment, she has, at an age when most people are retired or moving into “Gods Waiting Room”, a retirement village, gained a University Degree in Aviation Studies and become a qualified Wedding Celebrant.
I wish her every success in her unique Chapel In The Sky venture.

“A quick note to say thank you for officiating at our wedding. It truly
was memorable! We loved the laughter that you encouraged and all our
friends said how it set the mood for the evening. We really did not
stop enjoying ourselves from the moment you mentioned your ‘sign man’.”
H & G
“Rosemary was a terrific help on the lead up to our wedding day, providing
so much assistance with preparing our vows. She was always on top of
things and I knew that I could rely on her to ensure that the ceremony
went smoothly on the day, which of course it did".
Dear Rosemary, A quick note to say thank you for officiating at our
wedding. It truly was memorable! We loved the laughter that you encouraged
and all our friends said how it set the mood for the evening. We really
did not stop enjoying ourselves from the moment you mentioned your ‘sign
man’. What a shame we decided not to have a video of the event. It would
have made great footage!
