Dan was so friendly with our friends and family and we had many comments on how wonderful he was throught the night. He ensured our ceremony ran smoothly by having a practice with our bridal party and immediate families the night before the wedding. We are very grateful that we had Dan at our wedding!"

I love that Dan was willing and able to have a bit of fun, and really show his personality through the whole ceremony. We loved that Dan was so down to earth and let us just ‘roll with it’.  It was a quality we looked for with many celebrants and we are so thankful we came across Dan.

Dan was the best celebrant that we could've ever dreamt of!! He had us and our guests laughing and crying tears of joy throughout the entire ceremony. He personalised our wedding ceremony to fit us as a couple perfectly and we could not be happier!

Dan is amazing and was a great addition to our wedding day. He was able to create a relaxed and meaningful ceremony that was still fun which was exactly what we wanted! Dan was so helpful and friendly, our family and friends were singing his praises after the ceremony - they all thought he was wonderful. We were able to work with Dan to curate the perfect ceremony for us and we couldn't be more thankful. Despite a few weather set backs it was an amazing ceremony and Dan did an amazing Job, wholeheartedly recommend giving him a call!

Hey Jess, What a stunning wedding day! I think of Your's and Dan's gorgeous elopement often and it always brings a smile to my face :) Thanks for choosing me as your celebrant! Dan :)

Dan was an absolute legend to deal with. He was extremely thorough throughout the whole process. We asked our venue if they could recommend a down to earth, funny celebrant and they couldn't say Dan's name quick enough. Dan absolutely lived up to that and we are forever grateful for making our day one to remember. Thank you so much Dan.

28 Mar 2021

Amazing!! We have had nothing but compliments about our ceremony, we couldn't have asked for a better more professional celebrant. Living 6 hours away from each other the majority of our correspondence was done via email with a few phone calls, you wouldn't have known that we met right before our ceremony. Some of the comments received were "we thought he was a family friend". Dan has been so easy to work with and he conducted our ceremony perfectly.

20 Mar 2021

We first met Dan at a wedding expo and instantly fell in love with his personal approach to his ceremonies. Rather than the stock standard one fits everything ceremony Dan took the time to meet and talk with us on several occasions to get to know us and our story. This included a questionnaire for us to both fill out without the other seeing the answers. Dan used these to craft a unique and amazing ceremony starting from our first date. His ceremony was full of laughs and personal, Kayla and I loved every second of it. I also appreciated the efforts Dan went to before the ceremony to make me feel at ease and calm the nerves as I waited. An extra shout out as we had to cancel our ceremony in 2020 with a day's notice. Dan was so understanding and really took the stress away.

12 Mar 2021

Dan delivered the most perfect, personalised ceremony which summarised us to a tee. We received lots of compliments on the day about how relaxed, yet professional his delivery was. We would highly recommend Dan to any couples looking for a marriage celebrant! Thanks so much Dan. Maddy & Jake x

Dan was amazing! He was fun and Chilled and bought such a fun and energetic vibe. Everyone loved him and would highly recommend Dan to anyone.

20 Nov 2020

Dan helped to create a special day and more than I could have ever asked for. We had been searching for the right celebrant for some time. Once we spoke with Dan we knew he was right for us. Along the way Dan was more than happy for any questions I had. Dan had asked a number of questions about our history. These questions helped Dan to create a unique and special ceremony for us, taking us and our guests down memory lane. Can not thank Dan enough for his effort creating a day we will not forget.

We could not have been happier with Dan as our celebrant. Dan is so friendly and fun and he created such a good vibe for our ceremony, and had both ourselves and our guests laughing at all the right moments which is exactly what we wanted. He made all the formalities in the lead up to the day so easy and kept us on track with countdown emails to ensure he had all the information needed to make our ceremony unique and special to us. If you're looking for a fun, relaxed, and all-round legend as your celebrant - look no further. We would highly recommend Dan without hesitation.

30 Oct 2020

Great celebrant. Keep everything relaxed and informal. Made Cass and I feel very special. Interacted with the guests and made everything flow. Would certainly recommend Dan.

Dan was absolutely amazing! He stepped in at very short notice but still managed to make our ceremony personalised & fun. We can’t thank Dan enough for making our day perfect!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Cody, Are you kidding me! Yours and Matt's ceremony was a blast. You are such a great couple, and we had good vibes all day. Dan :)

We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant!! Dan was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations of a celebrant for our wedding day. He was so easy and fun to work with, he really took the time to get to know us as a couple and the result was a ceremony that was tailored just for us, and was full of personal stories, lots of laughs, and endearing moments. Our big day was a destination wedding in Hawaii, and Dan was so great at taking care of the legal side of things to make sure everything ran smoothly. He did everything within his power to make sure our ceremony was special and we received many compliments about him from our friends and family. We can't thank him, or recommend him enough. xx Laura and Cliff

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Laura (and Cliff!), Are you kidding me! Destination wedding Hawaii was the highlight of mine and Shelbys year! The people, the sand under our feet, the music (thanks DJ Teddy), and one hell of a ceremony, reception & tropical partay!! I'm blessed to have been a part of your wedding ..... can we do it again though?...I mean, an Anniversary thing of course ;) Dan X
