Hi there, I'm a little surprise package, looking sweet and innocent. I've worked in hospitality / event planning for a long time. I've seen and heard some horror stories, that made me decide to become a Celebrant. I know how to have a good time, plan, organise and relax. With my combined experience of working life around Australia & the loving challenges of my family , I've learnt to listen and accept people just the way they are. x

Deb was absolutely incredible from start to end. Her professional approach along with a very friendly personality made it very simple in choosing Deb to help celebrate our special day. Deb made sure to touch base frequently, offered assistance every single time we spoke, and made sure to be very thorough in her research to make the ceremony was tailored exactly to our taste.

Thank you for your high praise Luke. Keeping in touch is part of understanding you as a couple to ensure your ceremony is personalised to you. The research is to ensure the ceremony is true & tailored to fit your needs. I enjoyed blending in a religious element to help everyone feel included. A beautiful ceremony on a beautiful spring day. Deb :)

Deb is easy to talk to and made the marriage process seamless and easy. She was happy to answer any questions and designed our bespoke ceremony to suit our personalities and relationship. Her knowledge is unchallenged and she creates a ceremony that is fun and engaging for guests and couple alike. She ensured that we understood what we could have included within the ceremony and was very helpful in guiding us with our vows and making sure they fit well together. I could not have asked for a better day.

March 2023

Deb made our day incredible. As a couple we changed our wedding from 15 people to 30 to 45, not knowing where the location was going to be, feeling so lost and overwhelmed but Deb grounded us. She got to know us, the foundations of our relationship and ultimately feel in control of what made us happy. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant and I wholeheartedly would recommend Deb to marry any couple as she is so wonderful at her job. Thank you for being a part of our special day ❤️

There are so many choices for a celebrant... How can we narrow down and pick one for us?

We are having just a small wedding - 20 guests. It will be a simple ceremony followed by the reception. We don't want to spend too much, but would like a celebrant who can make the short amount of time special.

Celebrate with Deb

Choosing a celebrant is the most important decision of your wedding, especially with a small gathering. A celebrant can make or break the ceremony and  vibe for your whole celebration. Look at reveiws and photos. Take the time to talk to 2 or 3 Celebrants, face to face/in person if possible and choose the one that you feel most comfortable with. One that wants to know about you and will take the time to get to know you as a couple. The more you are comfortable to share with your celebrant, the better the ceremony will be. Even a short ceremony can be personalised and make everyone feel special.  Happy to help if you are in Vic.  xo Deb

Can I submit a NOIM to the registry before my divorce is finalised?

My divorce (joint application)is currently booked in to be heard August 7th and we are planning to be married on September 22nd. Can we lodge a NOIM to make sure we meet the 1-month requirement whilst the divorce is being processed and show it finalised before the wedding day?

Celebrate with Deb

Yes, you can lodge a NOIM to your celebrant or your chosen officiant now, they will note "divorce pending". A divorce becomes effective one month & one day after the court hearing. So as long as your divorce is heard on the 7th August it should be finalised and effective before your new wedding date. xo Deb

Elopement In A Hotel Room

I'm thinking of eloping in a nice hotel suite/room. Do we have to advise the hotel of an elopement if it's just going to be in the hotel room with 2 witnesses?

Celebrate with Deb

That sounds very personal and if you're wanting any assistance to make it extra special, it might be worth mentioning when you're booking the room. The hotel may offer an upgrade or bottle of celebration.  But really it isn't something you have to tell the hotel about.  xox Deb
