".......young enough to connect with, mature enough to project the perfect presence..........."

I love weddings!  I love a day that is filled with lots of love, laughs, happy tears and a cheeky champagne or two........

Whether your special day is going to be in a beautiful parkland, on a mountain top or a beach, in the bush, or an intimate back yard affair, I would love to help you create the day of your dreams.  As your Celebrant, I will keep it real and tell YOUR story how YOU want it to be told, whether it be playful, serious, cheeky or downright romantic.  Your day, your way.

Attention to detail is very important to me and I will combine this with a relaxed approach and personalised planning of your special day - whatever the occasion.   I will work hard with you to design a ceremony that is authentic, fresh and inviting, one that your guests will remember for all the right reasons.  

I will not change your vision, I will simply help you bring it to life!

Were so glad we chose Leonie to be our celebrant. She was very helpful in the lead up to the wedding and had a very professional yet relaxed vibe on the day, making us feel so comfortable and really enjoy our day. We really loved the ceremony she prepared for us, we even had many of our guests comment on how awesome she was! We had the best day and Leonie played a big part in that!

Leonie Duryea  

Thanks Mikkaelie and Carl - I love being known as AWESOME! Despite the Covid changes to your plans, and the short notice, transfer of NOIM etc etc, we all enjoyed a magical day and I am so glad you two finally were able to say I do! Thanks for choosing me! xx

I would highly recommend Leonie for her ongoing support and overall professionalism. She genuinely loves her work and has a passion about her craft. On our day she made us feel relaxed and special.

Leonie Duryea  

I'm so glad that you recognise my love for the Celebrant role (#myhappyplace). Thank you for your kind and beautiful words Deidre - your wedding was just perfect!

Leonie was the perfect fit for our wedding. She made everything so easy, and went above and beyond to make it the best day ever! She was the perfect balance of professional and fun!

Leonie Duryea

Leonie was an absolute pleasure to work with, I never thought this process could be so easy. From the paper work to the picking of vows! I can’t thank her enough for what she has done for us even during a pandemic, looking forward to her reaffirming our vows again in 2021 for the rest of our family and friends!

Leonie Duryea  

Teigan and Ryan, it was an honour to be there for your special day, even with the Covid restriction on your guest numbers - I can't wait to come back for the vow reaffirmation in front of all your family and friends

Leonie is absolutely amazing to get along with, she was absolutely perfect for our wedding, she had even suggested a special ceremony for my partner and my three kids to do, as my partner is not my two boys dad, it just made the day that little bit extra special combining all ov us as one, I totally recommend her, thank you so so much Leonie 🥰 Love the camin family

Leonie Duryea  

Chris and Martika, it was my absolute pleasure to officiate your wedding. It was such a fun day, brimming with love. Thank you for having me as your Celebrant - I loved it!

31 Oct 2020

Leonie was amazing and we cannot thank her enough for the way she conducted our ceremony. We got Married in October and she took the stress out of planning the ceremony. She is funny, kind, compassionate and a genuine person. We would recommend her to anyone getting married, it was like having an old family friend marry us, she has a welcoming personality that makes you feel like you have known her for years. Thank you again Leonie.

Leonie Duryea  

Hey Kelly and Simon - your wedding day was perfect for me as well! I also felt as though I had known you guys forever and thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your Celebrant! i wish you both all the very best for the years ahead.

31 Oct 2020

We cannot recommend Leonie enough. From before our 1st face to face meeting I was already comfortable with her. After our 1st meeting that comfort grew to complete confidence and trust. Leonie was told about my and David’s plans for a Halloween wedding, and she was honest and told us that she hadn’t done that kind of thing before probably wouldn’t dress up, which was fine with us. So over the year, like many others, COVID got in our way and plans had to be changed. The entire way and each twist and turn, Leonie was right by our side. The date became available again and Leonie offered to make it an extra special night and marry us in secret at my husbands belated 50th birthday party.. It was fabulous! Leonie made everything perfect and even became so part of our wedding that she bought a costume and joined in.

Leonie Duryea  

Yes! I did wear the costume and no-one picked the stranger in their midst, so we were able to keep the surprise wedding right to the very moment it happened. Thank you both for allowing me to broaden my horizons as a Celebrant, and I had such a fun night as well. I felt as if I had known you forever, and a friendship formed the more I got to know your story. Much love always David and Sarah.

10 Oct 2020

Leonie was fabulous, i absolutely cannot fault her. She travelled such a long way to service our rural NSW wedding and nothing was an issue for her. I couldn't reccommend Leonie enough to anyone looking for a celebrant who will make them feel comfortable, confident and calm. Thankyou Leonie, for helping our day run so smoothly.

Leonie Duryea  

You guys were a dream to work with, and there's nothing I like better than getting in my car and going for a roadtrip, especially for a beautiful wedding! Thank you again for giving me the opportunity Ryan and Ella. xx

5 Sep 2020

So glad we got to have Leonie apart of our special day. Right from the moment I called Leonie she was committed to making sure our ceremony was perfect. Leonie made the process of choosing a ceremony that reflected us easy and stress free. Leonie was only just a phone call or email away.Nothing was a problem. Our day was perfect and we can’t thank Leonie enough.

Leonie Duryea  

Kristy and Beau, you were both so easy to work with and made my job easy. It is all the wonderful couples like you that make me love my role as Celebrant, and I'm so glad I got to share your beautiful wedding day.

29 Aug 2020

We can’t recommend Leonie highly enough! She is very professional and efficient. Leonie made our wedding not only wonderful but totally stress free! Once we selected our vows she compiled everything and produced a beautiful ceremony. Leonie is a very caring kind and compassionate person who lead the ceremony seamlessly. Thank you so much for all your hard work and kindness.

Leonie Duryea  

Trish and David, it was my absolute privilege and pleasure to work with you, thank you for such a beautiful and heartfelt review. I hope we can catch up again one day!

15 Aug 2020

Leonie was absolutely amazing, especially with her ability to adapt to the current pandemic situation and still conduct a beautiful intimate ceremony. She had so much patience and understanding with the constant date changes and was so helpful in helping us choose a new location for our ceremony and it was perfect. My husband and I went into this having no clue where to start and Leonie helped us every step of the way, i highly recommend her. Thankyou again for a beautiful day.

Leonie Duryea  

Thank you Caitlin and Jarrod - you two made my job very easy, despite the Covid challenges. I am so glad you could finally be Mr and Mrs, and thank you for choosing me as your Celebrant! xx

21 Mar 2020

Leonie was a wonderful celebrant, she helped with all she could and explained everything to a T. She made a very informative booklet that I picked up sometime before my wedding that clearly outlined how my ceremony would go. As I young bride I had absolutely no idea about it all. If it was for Leonie’s extra time and information I don’t know where I would’ve started. We were lucky enough to get in just in time for the lock down in NSW. I will recommend her to any friends that ask me about my wedding

Leonie Duryea  

Thank you Olivia for this lovely review. I am so glad the booklet gave you lots of ideas and examples for you to choose the different components of your ceremony - this makes every ceremony unique, and yours was just beautiful. And yes, so lucky to celebrate your wedding before the restrictions. Thanks again.

6 Mar 2020

We were lucky enough to have Leonie officiate our wedding in early March and she was an absolute star throughout the whole process. She helped make the ceremony part of our day a breeze! She had some wonderful suggestions but never put any pressure on us. She helped capture our personalities and made the official stuff a bit of fun. Leonie was extremely knowledgable and professional yet very relatable and easy to get along with. We had a number of or guest compliment the ceremony. Couldn't recommend Leonie enough!

Leonie Duryea  

Thank you Bobby and Laura - I'm so glad you and your guests loved the service and we all had lots of fun - it was a perfect day! Your love is what makes me love this gig! xx

11 Jan 2020

Leonie was amazing. She knew her stuff, she was approachable, relatable, efficient and an all round pleasure to work with. Would recommend, she had suggestions, but was also open to working with us if we had any ideas. She had all the equipment we needed, she knew all the legal things and she was great with us and the guests on the day. She was willing to travel for us, which was very helpful and we were really thankful to have her around. Would recommend.

Leonie Duryea  

Thank you Samantha - that's a beautiful review - I had a ball on your wedding day - you two were so much fun, and your guests were too. Take care and enjoy being The Two Sams! xx

16 Nov 2019

Leonie Duryea officiated our wedding in November and her attention to detail from our first meeting right through to our special day was second to none. Leonie was the perfect addition to our day; making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Nothing was too much to ask of Leonie and we were very happy with our choice of celebrant! Leonie had great input and direction and had some beautiful little touches that made our wedding the best day ever and something for everyone to remember! Thank You Leonie

Leonie Duryea  

Hey Abbey and Conan, so glad you were happy with your choice of Celebrant! - I sure am pleased that you chose me! Your day was perfection and I'm honoured that I helped make it special for you xx Leonie
