I can help you to personalise your ceremony and vows so that they become a memorable and unique part of your Wedding Day.

My fees are very competitive with others in the area and in many cases are lower.  I will supply you with a tailored, customised quote. However you can be assured that this does not diminish a high standard of service.  My service fee covers all legal requirements including supply, preparation and lodgement of all forms and documents as well as:

-  Personalised attention to ceremony requirements and details to reflect your unique style.  Customised especially for you to include your own special details

-  Complimentary rehearsal

-  Unlimited phone and/or email support to discuss your ceremony

-  A free no obligation meeting so that you can decide if I am the right celebrant for you.

I am professional, friendly and caring and would love to hear from you.  I will help to make your special day a happy and memorable occasion.

What else do you need to know before enquiring with Dianne?

Q. How would you describe your wedding ceremony presentation style?
Professional, prepared, relaxed.

Q. What’s your process with couples like?
I usually try to keep things relaxed and simple and to try to make their special day as stress free as possible.  I also work in with the couple to try to make sure I am available at a time suitable to them for any meetings we may have.

Q. Do you specialise in a particular ceremony style or ritual?
Not really.  Usually, the ceremony style or ritual is totally dependent on what the couple wants.

Q. Do you offer to help couples write their wedding vows?
If the couple asks me for assistance with their vows, I definitely do but in the majority of cases the couple know what they want to say in their personal vows to each other.

Q. Do you usually attend a ceremony rehearsal the day before the wedding?
If the couple want a rehearsal, then yes I do.   I offer a complimentary rehearsal where some celebrants charge extra for the rehearsal.

Q. Can you share one or two wedding ceremony readings you like to recommend to couples?
The Art of Marriage by Wilferd A Peterson
“A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the "little" things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say, ”I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is standing together and facing the world.
It is speaking words of appreciation, and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is not only marrying the right person -- it is being the right partner” 


There is no greater happiness than that of sharing life 

With all its joys, and all its cares, as a loving man and wife 

For love gives life new meaning, and has a special way 

Of growing stronger, deeper, with every passing day 

Life if more fulfilling, more rewarding when you’re sharing 

The very special joys that come with loving, giving and caring. 

Q. What’s the best review you’ve ever received from a couple?
I think it is an honour to get a complimentary review and so I would not like to single out just one.

Q. Can you provide ceremony script samples if a couple would like to see them?
I always provide a couple with sample ceremonies as well as a draft ceremony that they can use to create ideas for their ceremony.

Q. What packages do you offer and are there any additional fees?
I do have packages but usually work with the couple to provide a tailored package for their needs.

Q. What else would you like couples to know about what you do?
I am easy to get along with, approachable, professional, ensure a high standard of service, am reliable with an emphasis on attention to detail.

Easy Weddings Special Offer


Book your wedding with me by the 30th June 2024 to receive a standard marriage certificate valued at $65.  This is the official certificate issued by Registry Births, Deaths & Marriages after the marriage has been registered.  It is additional to the decorative certificate that you receive at the time of your ceremony.

Enquire to claim offer Enquire to claim offer


The Notice of Intended Marriage must be given to the celebrant no later than one month before the wedding date and no sooner than 18 months before the wedding date.  There are specific conditions that can allow a shortened timeframe and if this situation arises contact your celebrant for further information.

In order for the Notice to Intended Marriage to be completed, the celebrant is required to sight documents to prove date and place of birth and also photo ID for proof of identification.

An original birth certificate or passport is required for proof of date and place of birth.  A passport or drivers licence can be used for proof of identification.

If one of the parties to the marriage has previously been married, the celebrant has to sight the original decree absolute, certificate of divorce or divorce order or overseas equivalent or the original death certificate. 

Two people over 18 years of age are required as legal witnesses and ideally should know the parties to the marriage.  They can be family members such as mother, father, sister or friends.  A celebrant is not responsible for providing witnesses.

Yes you can.  I will provide examples to give you some ideas but your vows are very personal and I suggest that you write them yourselves.  I will review them for you and offer suggestions if necessary.  You can write them separately or jointly.

It is a legal requirement that specific minimum words be inlcuded in your vows but once this requirement has been met, you can add your personal vows.

The easiest way to do this is to ask your celebrant to organise it for you.  By doing this it will save you a lot of time and paperwork.  I can order the certificate for you online when I register your marriage with Births, Deaths & Marriages.  The current price for a NSW Certified Copy is $65.

Thank you Clare for your amazing review. It was my absolute pleasure to be part of your special day and to make sure that your ceremony was as perfect as it could possibly be.

January 2021

Dianne was an amazing celebrant. She was very thorough and very responsive, she guided us through all the paper work and helped us with ideas for the ceremony. Due to COVID things were very uncertain, but Dianne was incredibly flexible, she made the whole process so much easier. I would highly recommend Dianne to anyone in the area looking for a celebrant.

Thank you Kyra. It was my pleasure to be able to be part of your special day. I am just so glad you were able to have the wedding you had planned given the COVID restrictions.

February 2024

Dianne understood our needs extremely well and happily tailored our ceremony to suit. She guided us through the complexities of the legal requirements, complicated by the fact that we live outside Australia. Her warm personality shone through on the day and made our small ceremony the special event that we wanted. Dianne is fantastic
