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 our celebrant and MC for our wedding day. Dan was brilliant to work with and made everyone feel so relaxed and comfortable on the big day. He took the time to get to know Liam and I so he was able to deliver a very personalised and genuine ceremony. We are so glad we hired Dan to be our MC also, he took the pressure off our friends and family so everyone could relax and enjoy the night and allowed the ceremony, right through to the reception to run so seamlessly. He tailored the ceremony and reception to suit our style and we are so so pleased. I would highly recommend Dan as an MC and Celebrant. It felt like I had my very own wedding planner/coordinator on the day! Thanks Dan!!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Jess , Thanks so much for having / trusting me as your MC as well as your Celebrant (I do love MC'ing as it free's up ALL of your guests to really celebrate!). It was great to see you both having great fun all night long with your friends and family :) Thanks again! Dan :)

Dan is an absolutely incredible celebrant! Organised, personal, efficient and professional! We met with Dan over the phone to discuss the process and planning for our ceremony and immediately felt at ease. His questionnaires and frequent emails kept us on track and enabled him to write the most beautiful and personalised ceremony. He spoke of how we met, our similarities and differences, the way we became engaged and the things we love most about each other. The ceremony was a perfect mix of sentimental and humorous moments. The way Dan told our story and interacted with our guests felt as though we had a friend standing up there with us. Dan was the talk of the town with nearly every wedding guest raving about how amazing and charismatic he was. We feel blessed have had such a special ceremony and can’t thank Dan enough for being such a positive vibe.

Hey Jess, Talk about a cracking wedding! Your 'crew' were such an awesome bunch, everyone there to celebrate and enjoy such a special event! It was a real pleasure to co-create with you both. Good times! Dan. X

Thank you so much Dan for such a memorable Day and Night! We reached out and booked Dan 1 year before the wedding as we wanted to secure him quickly - No. 1 celebrant in the Sunshine Coast/Brisbane area! - The best Celebrant & MC you could ever want and have!! Amazing from start to finish. Preparing for a wedding and ensuring your guests are having a enjoyable time can be stressful but Dan as our Celebrant & also Reception MC made everything so exciting and kept the night flowing and drinks flowing! As our Wedding Celebrant he is most genuine in how he operates he really understood us as a couple understood what we as a couple had in our hearts for each other and put everything beautifully into words for the Wedding Ceremony. His service and care for our big day is beyond the 5 stars. This is

Hey Elizabeth, Your cultural fusion wedding and reception was a hilight of my year to plan for, and MC on the night. So much dancing and good times was had by everyone! Thanks again for choosing me as your celebrant & MC :) Dan . X

Dan made, what would have been an otherwise stressful and nerve-racking day; easy, fun and wonderful. He's versatile and flexible with what you want on the day. So many of our guests complimented on how great he was, and really made our day special.

18 Sep 2021

Dan was simply fantastic. Our whole congregation left the church asking who he was and how we found him. Simply couldn't have had things go smoother or be a better ceremony. The day is full of nerves but Dan was great to make things as simple as possible and help out where needed. The ceremony was personal, funny, warm and loving. Our guests especially loved how Dan was able to make the ceremony out us as couple while drawing no attention to himself. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Dan made our big day everything that we hoped for! Thanks to Dan’s calm and collected nature, we were able to navigate all Covid-19 disruptions and restrictions with ease! Dan listened to what we wanted to achieve and took onboard all our pesky requirements. He also tied in our vows to a wonderful back story and carried the right level of sentiment and fun that we wanted. Thanks Dan!

Hey Nick, Mate, it was my pleasure. Good on you two for weathering the storm and getting it done! COVID... BE GONE! Dan. X

Dan was super easy to work with in the lead up to the wedding. An initial video chat + touch points in the lead up made it really clear for what we needed to do, and really reassured that everything was covered on the legal side of the things. On the actual day he was wonderful. Very helpful and reassuring with the nerves, and he did an amazing job. We wanted something short and intimate and everyone said it was the best ceremony they had been to, and they were engaged and entertained throughout the entire thing. We both highly recommend Dan, he put us at ease and led what was the beginning of an amazing day. Thank you!

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Clancy, Thanks so much for those kind words. Zac and yourself were a real pleasure to work with as well. It was a real treat to get to know you both better, and a privilidge to narrate your story and marriage! Dan .X

Dan was brilliant as our Celebrant for our wedding. He took care of everything and ensured that our ceremony truly reflected us as a couple. He took the time to really get to know us so that when he was speaking, it was our story. Couldn't recommend him enough.

We are so glad we chose Dan to be our celebrant. From our first Zoom chat he made us feel so comfortable with his genuine care and excitement for our big day. We had guests commenting how relaxed and heartfelt our ceremony was, exactly the vibe we wanted and Dan had created this beautiful ceremony to match. Thanks again Dan, we really couldn't have asked for more!

Hey Adrienne, Yes! Thanks for co-creating the ceremony with me! It was a blast to re-tell your story and officially marry you both too. Dan . X

22 Apr 2021

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.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

My Pleasure Amy :). The ceremony is only as good as the couple who's story it tells ;) Dan . X

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.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Thanks Hayley, and yes.... bless the internet! It certainly makes organising and planning a wedding much easier over long didtances. thanks for trusting me to bring it all together on the day as well ;) Dan . X

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.

Dan Ford Celebrant & MC  

Hey Kent, It was my pleasure to be there for you and Kayla, through the last minute lockdown and into a new date and ceremony :) We got there in the end and your wedding was an absoloute cracker!! Take it easy mate. Dan . X

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
