Our wedding was made special by the active participation of grandchildren and children in the ceremony. Debra embraced the potential unruliness, delivering a ceremony that was both beautiful and meaningful for myself and my partner, but also light, funny and amazing in places. During the planning phase we found Debra was a bit slow in responding to our inquiries and a couple of early meetings were cancelled at late notice. Other than those small inconveniences, we were really delighted with our dealings with Debra and would absolutely recommend her to others.

Debra is amazing! She made our ceremony so memorable the guest raved of how fun it was. She was very eloquent, engaging and entertaining which made everyone in the room feel comfortable. She is highly organised, straight to the point and such a people person, that's why we chose her as our celebrant.

We are still pinching ourselves with how well our wedding day went, and a very large part of that was due to Debra. Her warm, calming nature and absolute professionalism shone through and made our day everything we had dreamt. Months later, our friends and family are still talking about how great our ceremony was. Thanks again Deb!!

Deb is warm, engaging, spirited, professional and fun! Debra felt like family after only one meeting. Her guidance and communication is at your pace and works closely with you through the entire journey. We knew a great Celebrant can make your entire day, but Deb is next level amazing!

From the moment we met Debra, we just wanted to be her friend! She is both warm and professional, and made us feel simultaneously relaxed and excited about the biggest day of our lives! She is an incredibly lovely woman, and we can't recommend her enough. Debra, thanks so much for making our day so special.

We cannot thank Debra enough for all of her hard work and assistance on officiating our wedding. She has such a warm and welcoming personality and right from the start we knew she would be a perfect fit for our wedding day. Debra made our wedding day so special and personal. She included the audience and made such an effort to learn all about us and our lives and incorporated this knowledge throughout the ceremony. We would HIGHLY recommend Debra (and have done so to many of our guests) who all commented on what an amazing ceremony she created. Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! We will never forget our wonderful wedding day. Jess and Brett

We are so grateful that we went with Debra. She was a recommendation from a friend. She kept me calm and we couldn't have anyone else to authorise our wedding. She was so patient and was so accommodating.

A close friend recommended Debra as the wedding celebrant, I'm so happy she did!! Debra is a beautiful and gentle person, and she was awesome at the ceremony. She understood perfectly what we wanted, and the way she spoke was beautiful. You would be very lucky to have her as your marriage celebrant.

Debra was the first celebrant we met with and we knew straight away that she was a perfect fit. She made the planning process simple, allowing as much freedom as anyone could want, but always ready with a helpful suggestion. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, Debra was perfect.

Deb was amazing. She went out of her way to work out what we wanted and how to perfectly reflect us and our relationship. As one guest said: "from the moment Deb opened her mouth we knew it was going to be an incredible night and a great party".

Debra was charming and patient, listened to our ideas and provided us with a book that works as a guide to help simplify choices in the ceremony. Both meetings we had she come to us which was very convenient. Many guests commented on how lovely the service was. Would recommend Debra.

I cannot speak highly enough of Debra. From the initial meeting through to the "big day" her warmth, enthusiasm and good humour set us at ease. It really felt like having a family or friend officiate the ceremony rather than someone we had only recently met. We are not very traditional, and my husband was very nervous about speaking in public but she tailored the ceremony to suit us. She made what is an undoubtedly stressful day much more relaxed.

Deb was an amazing celebrant! From the initial contact, she completely understood our needs to have the ceremony as an intimate and personalised event. She was easy to chat with and supportive of how overwhelming the process felt. We immediately felt at easy with having her. She was professional yet had a great sense of humor. She was flexible and provided the guidance we needed. The day of the wedding was perfect. Deb took charge when our groom was feeling nervous and overwhelmed. She took charge of our excited audience and perfectly guided the ceremony making it the most wonderful experience. She was just as excited as we were and it honestly felt like she was one of our friends that had known us along with our own friends. It was an absolute pleasure to have her marry us and would highly recommend her to all my friends!

Where do I start, I couldn't imagine anyone else being apart of our special day! From the moment we met until the end of the evening of our wedding day and after (we loved Debra so much we asked her to MC at our wedding too!) she was nothing but caring and just a wonderful energy and person to have with us. She's not only extremely sweet and kind, she is amazing at organising everything and helped us so much when it came to having our ceremony, we love you always Debra! Tanya and Amir xoxox

Great work helping us prepare meeting with us multiple times and everything was wonderful on the day. Debra has a fantastic personal approach that made us reflect and really helped us craft a wonderful ceremony. Her presence on the day was calming and helpful but she also emphasized our role and the dynamic between us on the day.

I attended a friend's wedding a few years ago that Deb had performed and was so impressed with her tone, beautiful words and conduct that I booked her for my own wedding. She was very professional thoughout the lead up and on the day performed a beautiful ceremony.

We had seen Deb conduct two other weddings for our friends and we were struck by how different and personal each one was- we knew she'd do the same for us and she didn't disappoint! We felt instantly comfortable with her as she was kind, caring and extremely well organised. She created a heartfelt and memorable ceremony in which she delivered impeccably on the day.
