Darren was straight forward, organised, professional and brought lightness to our ceremony. He didn't push any unnecessary traditions on us and was supportive of our simple relaxed ceremony. His templates helped us write our ceremony and he ensured that we felt comfortable by initiating a pre-wedding practice. We have fond memories of sharing our day with Darren and can highly recommend his services.

I appreciate your kind words Claire and Chris! With all your family and friends ready to celebrate it wasn't hard to accomodate with a fun and meaningful ceremony. Wishing you a life full of love, laughter and happiness!

Darren was a wonderful celebrant at our wedding. He was warm, personable, friendly, professional, humorous, understanding, and very accommodating. He helped make our day personal and made sure that we knew what we needed to do leading up to the day. We couldn't recommend him highly enough. Kate and Dean.

It was my pleasure Kate and Dean. I always love a beach wedding and the way the two of you strolled down the aisle together with your family and friends cheering was a perfect way to start the ceremony.

We knew Darren was the right choice in celebrant for us from our first meeting. He was genuine and laid back and happy to go along with whatever wacky idea we had. Trying to plan a wedding interstate is hard but Darren was so easy to communicate with and also responded quickly to any questions we had. Not wanting anything too serious or stuffy Darren was able to help us create the perfect ceremony with lots of love and laughter. Thanks so much Darren!

Thank you Samantha and Drew for the great review. It was so much fun to help celebrate your wedding. From the personalised vows you wrote, to listening to Sam's brother Daniel, telling everyone about your life together - it was a brilliant ceremony.

Darren was fantastic! He helped every step of the way as we didn't know what was required for the legal side. He was also very accommodating when we updated the venue from ACT to NSW. Then on the day he was very professional and calming presence, helping make it an amazing day.

We were interested in a relaxed wedding ceremony with a touch of humour; Darren delivered exactly that. Darren was intersted in what would make a perfect ceremony for us and was also a fantastic source of useful information, including some beautiful readings. We could not recommend Darren more highly.

We decided to go with Darren as his laid back, warm and friendly personality matched the style of ceremony we wanted. He was very flexible and allowed us to tailor our ceremony to what we were after. He supplied a PA system and mic along with a table on the day to get everything done. We were super happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone.
