Dan was fantastic! Right from the very start when we first made contact with him he was informative, friendly and able to offer what we were looking for from our celebrant. In the lead up his communication and flexibility with us being interstate made everything smooth and easy. The rehearsal was awesome, he made sure everyone knew what they need to do, when and how and put a real ease into how the following day would go. And as you can imagine the day went along beautifully. Dan was able to capture the lighthearted, casual romance that we were after during the ceremony and everyone who attended commented on how amazing the ceremony was. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone planning their wedding. Dan also was our MC for the reception. He continued the effortless casual romantic feel through the day and ensured everyone had an excellent day.

Hey Mackenzie (& Matt), let me start by thanking you both for choosing, then trusting me to officiate your ceremony and reception at Flaxton Gardens! Your entire day and night was a real pleasure to attened and be involved in. Have a fantastic marriage! Dan. x

Dan was our celebrant and MC for our wedding day. Dan was brilliant to work with and made everyone feel so relaxed and comfortable on the big day. He took the time to get to know Liam and I so he was able to deliver a very personalised and genuine ceremony. We are so glad we hired Dan to be our MC also, he took the pressure off our friends and family so everyone could relax and enjoy the night and allowed the ceremony, right through to the reception to run so seamlessly. He tailored the ceremony and reception to suit our style and we are so so pleased. I would highly recommend Dan as an MC and Celebrant. It felt like I had my very own wedding planner/coordinator on the day! Thanks Dan!!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Jess , Thanks so much for having / trusting me as your MC as well as your Celebrant (I do love MC'ing as it free's up ALL of your guests to really celebrate!). It was great to see you both having great fun all night long with your friends and family :) Thanks again! Dan :)

Dan is an absolutely incredible celebrant! Organised, personal, efficient and professional! We met with Dan over the phone to discuss the process and planning for our ceremony and immediately felt at ease. His questionnaires and frequent emails kept us on track and enabled him to write the most beautiful and personalised ceremony. He spoke of how we met, our similarities and differences, the way we became engaged and the things we love most about each other. The ceremony was a perfect mix of sentimental and humorous moments. The way Dan told our story and interacted with our guests felt as though we had a friend standing up there with us. Dan was the talk of the town with nearly every wedding guest raving about how amazing and charismatic he was. We feel blessed have had such a special ceremony and can’t thank Dan enough for being such a positive vibe.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Jess, Talk about a cracking wedding! Your 'crew' were such an awesome bunch, everyone there to celebrate and enjoy such a special event! It was a real pleasure to co-create with you both. Good times! Dan. X

Dan was our celebrant and MC for our recent wedding and we are honestly still so happy with his service. He was funny, heart-warming and genuine during our ceremony. Dan's pricing is very affordable and he does everything you need to become formally married. Highly recommend. Many family and friends approached us throughout the night complimenting his services.

Dan was incredible!! I couldn't have asked for a better celebrant for our wedding. Dan was laid back, comfortable and we could easily tell that he loves his job. He made me, and more importantly, my husband feel at ease right from the very first meeting. I received a call from Dan the morning of our wedding when I was feeling all the jitters, and his calm and fun demeanor immediately calmed me down too! The ceremony that Dan created from our questionnaire was so well written - it was funny, sweet, loving, and explained our story perfectly. After the ceremony, all of our guests mentioned how wonderful they all thought our celebrant was which is a true testament to Dan's capabilities. Thank you for everything Dan, you will be thought of for years to come! xx

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Jess, I had a lot of fun putting your ceremony together. Re-living your highlights and weaving them into a modern-narrative style of ceremony that everyone enjoyed. Huzzah! Thanks so much for choosing me as your celebrant too. Dan. x

Dan was a fantastic celebrant, would highly recommend! His relaxed and easy going approach to our big day made us feel in safe hands and he created a wonderfully memorable and hilarious ceremony. Would highly recommend Dan as a celebrant.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Thanks Will & Bronte. Yes, your wedding was a big one! More black Tux's and gorgeous dresses than I could count. I'll tell you what though, a nicer gathering of people, all dressed to the nine's you will struggle to find anywhere. Thanks so much for choosing me as your Celebrant & MC. Dan :)

Our wedding celebration was perfect and very special. Our ceremony was just perfect, Dan learnt our story so well and stitched together our story so well. Everyone said it was the best ceremony they had been to and it's definitely all thanks to Dan. it was completely us - funny, relaxed and full of love!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey, Thanks to you and Nat for sharing so much of your story and so many funny and thoughtful anecdotes and highlights. because you did, I was able to weave the ceremony into a fun, meaningful, and loving presentation. It really made the whole experience of ceremony design fun and memorable! Dan. x

Dan created a special ceremony for Natalie and I that was modern, light-hearted, but serious all at once. The ceremony reflected who we are and was exactly what we wanted for our special day. Dan knows his stuff as a celebrant to make sure all those tiny little details that you never think of are done right. On the day and since our guest have repeatedly told us that they loved the ceremony, and it was the best they had seen. We could not have wished for better and highly recommend Dan.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey John (and Nat), Yours' was a truly memorable Wedding day at Gabbinbar Homestead. Pesky virus hurdles a-plenty, we got there in the end, though (and with style;). Thanks so much for choosing me as your Celebrant. Dan :)

Dan was our Celebrant and MC for our wedding in April this year. If I could give this man 1000% I would - he was EVERYTHING we had hoped for and so much more… Dan kept the day flowing perfectly and did it with such style, charm wit and class. Soooo many of our guests are still commenting on how awesome he was. If there is one thing we did right for our day, it was to bring Dan on board - no regrets whatsoever... Dan, we Love Love LOVE your work!!!

Honestly Kelly and I can not ask for a better Celebrant. Dan was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. It was everything we could’ve asked for. I highly recommend Dan to all couples! You won’t regret it.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Aww jeepers. Thanks a bunch, Ross & Kel. Your special day was a real pleasure to be a part of. Thanks again for choosing me as your celebrant too. Dan. x

26 Mar 2022

Dan is the perfect combination of what we wanted in a celebrant (in our case, Dan was also our MC for the reception and I'd recommend you do yourself a favour and ask him to handle both for you) - not only in how he approached his role but also how he approaches his business in general. Dan is very personable, has a great style, and is experienced in all the ways to add special touches to the day (while also allaying any anxieties). On the business side, he's organized, professional, and clearly dedicated to honing his craft despite already being the best I've come across after being a guest at dozens of weddings. Moreover, our guests loved him and, as cliche as it sounds, I'll be recommending him to all our friends who are getting engaged and starting the planning process.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Soph & Reece, Haha, Yes! MC'ing is a guilty pleasure of mine for sure. I was convinced to become a Celebrant whilst MC'ing a relatives wedding acctually ;) And, a big thanks to you both for trusting me with your Ceremony and Reception. It was a lot of fun and a cracking day and night out. Dan. x

James M.

11 Mar 2022

Relatives thought Dan was a friend, and friends thought that Dan was a relative, he reflected us so well. We requested an Acknowledgement of Country to start our ceremony and Dan brought such a respectful and interesting history of where we stood, it was a highlight of the day. The ceremony was so joyful, Dan had taken the time to know us and had our guests and ourselves both laughing and crying such happy tears. Also, Dan was so well dressed and handsome, he looked part of our fashionista crowd!!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Gents! Are you kidding me :) Rain couldn't even come close to dampening anything about your wedding and party at the Boatshed!! Your vision was so perfect, your friends and family, so ready to celebrate you both! Even the stars came out to cap off what was the perfect celebration of two amazing humans. Thank you both. Dan. X

Dan was flexible supportive and he was a great entertainer. He made our wedding ceremony run incredibly smoothly and had our guests laughing along the way. His system to prompt each step was highly efficient and kept us on task for the important day. We were very last minute with everything and Dan just took it all in his stride.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Rachel, Thank you for those very kind words. I definitely consider it an honor to make the process of marriage organised, engauging and above all fun for myself, and my couples so thanks for choosing me as your celebrant. Dan. x

Dan did an awesome job during our wedding and it was our great pleasure to have him as our celebrant. He made sure that we are up to date and everything was so organised. The questionnaires he sent us was a big help to organise our story, thoughts, and feelings for each other. During the wedding, he made us feel comfortable and our guests really enjoyed the way he presented himself. He also made himself as an extra organiser during our group photos! It was a lovely day and we couldn’t thank him enough for a job well done. 😁

Dan was the celebrant for our surprise elopement. Dan made the process leading up to the day super easy and stress-free. Dan made our ceremony fun with lots of laughs with the wonderful words he used. Dan made us feel very comfortable when exchanging our vows. We highly recommend Dan if you are looking for a celebrant you will not be disappointed.

Ever since I found out Dan was a celebrant (we worked together in a previous life) I just knew I would ask him to be our celebrant if/when the time came…. I am so pleased I stuck with this gut feeling. Our planned wedding was cancelled due to border restrictions, so all of our guests were tuning in via Zoom. To be honest, most of our loved ones were raving more about Dan than us! Haha. In all seriousness though, Dan was able to create such a thoughtful and personal experience for us, while also making everyone tuning in on Zoom feel like they were there. There was the perfect mix of love, laughter, sincerity and fun. 100% recommend Dan to anyone looking for a celebrant. Thank you Dan!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Hannah & Simon, It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of your very intimate Elopements Noosa wedding. Thanks for bringing so much fun and charm to the sunrise ceremony! Dan. x

Blair M.

18 Sep 2021

Dan was simply fantastic. Our whole congregation left the church asking who he was and how we found him. Simply couldn't have had things go smoother or be a better ceremony. The day is full of nerves but Dan was great to make things as simple as possible and help out where needed. The ceremony was personal, funny, warm and loving. Our guests especially loved how Dan was able to make the ceremony out us as couple while drawing no attention to himself. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Blair, What a cracker of a day your'e wedding was! So much fun and feels with everyone finally being able to catch up! Thanks so much for choosing me as your celebrant :) Dan . X

Dan made our big day everything that we hoped for! Thanks to Dan’s calm and collected nature, we were able to navigate all Covid-19 disruptions and restrictions with ease! Dan listened to what we wanted to achieve and took onboard all our pesky requirements. He also tied in our vows to a wonderful back story and carried the right level of sentiment and fun that we wanted. Thanks Dan!

Hey Nick, Mate, it was my pleasure. Good on you two for weathering the storm and getting it done! COVID... BE GONE! Dan. X

Dan was super easy to work with in the lead up to the wedding. An initial video chat + touch points in the lead up made it really clear for what we needed to do, and really reassured that everything was covered on the legal side of the things. On the actual day he was wonderful. Very helpful and reassuring with the nerves, and he did an amazing job. We wanted something short and intimate and everyone said it was the best ceremony they had been to, and they were engaged and entertained throughout the entire thing. We both highly recommend Dan, he put us at ease and led what was the beginning of an amazing day. Thank you!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Clancy, Thanks so much for those kind words. Zac and yourself were a real pleasure to work with as well. It was a real treat to get to know you both better, and a privilidge to narrate your story and marriage! Dan .X

Dan was brilliant as our Celebrant for our wedding. He took care of everything and ensured that our ceremony truly reflected us as a couple. He took the time to really get to know us so that when he was speaking, it was our story. Couldn't recommend him enough.

Hey Sam, Your story was a great one! And it was my pleasure to be a part of your wedding dream team too. Dan . X

Thank you so much Dan for such a memorable Day and Night! We reached out and booked Dan 1 year before the wedding as we wanted to secure him quickly - No. 1 celebrant in the Sunshine Coast/Brisbane area! - The best Celebrant & MC you could ever want and have!! Amazing from start to finish. Preparing for a wedding and ensuring your guests are having a enjoyable time can be stressful but Dan as our Celebrant & also Reception MC made everything so exciting and kept the night flowing and drinks flowing! As our Wedding Celebrant he is most genuine in how he operates he really understood us as a couple understood what we as a couple had in our hearts for each other and put everything beautifully into words for the Wedding Ceremony. His service and care for our big day is beyond the 5 stars. This is

We are so glad we chose Dan to be our celebrant. From our first Zoom chat he made us feel so comfortable with his genuine care and excitement for our big day.

Dan was an absolute legend to deal with. He was extremely thorough throughout the whole process. We asked our venue if they could recommend a down to earth, funny celebrant and they couldn't say Dan's name quick enough. Dan absolutely lived up to that and we are forever grateful for making our day one to remember. Thank you so much Dan.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

My Pleasure Amy :). The ceremony is only as good as the couple who's story it tells ;) Dan . X

Hayley C.

28 Mar 2021

Amazing!! We have had nothing but compliments about our ceremony, we couldn't have asked for a better more professional celebrant. Living 6 hours away from each other the majority of our correspondence was done via email with a few phone calls, you wouldn't have known that we met right before our ceremony. Some of the comments received were "we thought he was a family friend". Dan has been so easy to work with and he conducted our ceremony perfectly.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Thanks Hayley, and yes.... bless the internet! It certainly makes organising and planning a wedding much easier over long didtances. thanks for trusting me to bring it all together on the day as well ;) Dan . X

Kent R.

20 Mar 2021

We first met Dan at a wedding expo and instantly fell in love with his personal approach to his ceremonies. Rather than the stock standard one fits everything ceremony Dan took the time to meet and talk with us on several occasions to get to know us and our story. This included a questionnaire for us to both fill out without the other seeing the answers. Dan used these to craft a unique and amazing ceremony starting from our first date. His ceremony was full of laughs and personal, Kayla and I loved every second of it. I also appreciated the efforts Dan went to before the ceremony to make me feel at ease and calm the nerves as I waited. An extra shout out as we had to cancel our ceremony in 2020 with a day's notice. Dan was so understanding and really took the stress away.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Kent, It was my pleasure to be there for you and Kayla, through the last minute lockdown and into a new date and ceremony :) We got there in the end and your wedding was an absoloute cracker!! Take it easy mate. Dan . X

Dan helped to create a special day and more than I could have ever asked for. We had been searching for the right celebrant for some time. Once we spoke with Dan we knew he was right for us. Along the way Dan was more than happy for any questions I had. Dan had asked a number of questions about our history. These questions helped Dan to create a unique and special ceremony for us, taking us and our guests down memory lane. Can not thank Dan enough for his effort creating a day we will not forget.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Jess, My absolute pleasure. Yours and Dans intimate elopment style ceremony, couples story and the entire day was absolutely beautiful. Thanks again for choosing me as your celebrant.

We could not have been happier with Dan as our celebrant. Dan is so friendly and fun and he created such a good vibe for our ceremony, and had both ourselves and our guests laughing at all the right moments which is exactly what we wanted. He made all the formalities in the lead up to the day so easy and kept us on track with countdown emails to ensure he had all the information needed to make our ceremony unique and special to us. If you're looking for a fun, relaxed, and all-round legend as your celebrant - look no further. We would highly recommend Dan without hesitation.

We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant!! Dan was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations of a celebrant for our wedding day. He was so easy and fun to work with, he really took the time to get to know us as a couple and the result was a ceremony that was tailored just for us, and was full of personal stories, lots of laughs, and endearing moments. Our big day was a destination wedding in Hawaii, and Dan was so great at taking care of the legal side of things to make sure everything ran smoothly. He did everything within his power to make sure our ceremony was special and we received many compliments about him from our friends and family. We can't thank him, or recommend him enough. xx Laura and Cliff

Hey Laura (and Cliff!), Are you kidding me! Destination wedding Hawaii was the highlight of mine and Shelbys year!

I'm blessed to have been a part of your wedding ..... can we do it again though?...I mean, an Anniversary thing of course ;) Dan X
