Ceremonies that make you smile :)

HI, my name is Del Edwards and I have been an Authorised Marriage Celebrant for 7 years.

I have helped over 200 couples create ceremonies that are full of fun, full of romance and full of meaning!


I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  You see, every couple is different and therefore every ceremony I write is different. I will take the time to listen to your needs and desires and then, together, we can plan a ceremony that will delight you and your guests.

I believe that your wedding marks a new beginning in your life ... whethers it's your first wedding or your fourth wedding!  Therefore, should mark with new beginning with a ceremony that represents the 'real you'.  

Be it bush, beach or backyard; golf course, garden or grand venue – I'll handle the ceremony part of your day so you can concentrate on, well …. just being yourselves!

I am located in Glen Alpine, right next to Campbelltown Golf Course, so I am perfectly placed for weddings in Sydney, Camden, Wollongong, Kiama, or the Southern Highlands.

I would love to be a part of your special day!  If you're ready, it's easy to get started. Contact me now to arrange an appointment. 

"Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that!"

Questions and Answers

What documents do I need?

Del Edwards - Weddingdells

You'll need to show me your original passport or birth certificate + some photo ID. However, if you've been married before, you will also need to provide evidence of how that marriage ended eg. Divorce papers or a Death Certificate.  If you have changed your name, you will need to provide evidence eg. Change of Name Certificate or Deed Poll documents.  I only speak English, so if any of your personal documents/certificates are in an alphabet other than English, they need to be translated by an accredited Translator.  The National Accreditation Authority for Translators & Interpreters Ltd (NAATI) is the national standards and accreditation body for translators and interpreters in Australia.  Their website is www.naati.com.au.  

*Remember: Unless the Celebrant performing the Marriage Ceremony has sighted all necessary documentation prior to commencing the formal proceedings, the marriage cannot be officiated.  

My partner does not speak English, what do I need to do?

Del Edwards - Weddingdells

If the Bride, Groom or either witness does not speak English well enough to understand the legal parts of the Ceremony, you are required to provide an Interpreter who can translate for the non-English speaking persons. Interpreters can be found on the NAATI website (www.naati.com.au), however, you can also have a friend or an associate to translate for you.  The person interpreting will be required to sign a Statutory Declaration before and after the ceremony, declaring that they have faithfully and honestly translated from English to the other language and back again.  

*Remember: Any fee associated with the provision of an Interpreter is the responsibility of the Bride and Groom.

Who can be a legal witness?

Del Edwards - Weddingdells

Any two people who are willing to witness your entire wedding ceremony and who are at least 18 years of age!  It can be mum and dad, or your grandparents, the best man and MOH, or perhaps a friend who didn't make it into the bridal party (but you still want to involve them in your ceremony).  A witness is required to faithfully hear and understand your marriage vows and they will sign all three Marriage Certificates during the ceremony.  They do not need to be Australian residents, however, if they cannot understand English, you will need to employ an interpreter (see the question above).

How long is a ceremony?

Del Edwards - Weddingdells

It's really up to you.  The Groom always wants it over quickly (LOL) and, if that's what you want, I can perform a 15 minute ceremony that ticks all the legal boxes, but also gives you something sweet to cherish.  Most often, however, a ceremony lasts between 20-30 minutes depending on how much content there is in your chosen vows, readings and symbolic rituals, eg. hand fasting or sand ceremony etc.

Can I write my own vows?

Del Edwards - Weddingdells

Of course!  As long as the required legal words are included at either the beginning or the end.  These words cannot be separated: "I call upon the people here present to witness that I, FULL NAME, take you, FULL NAME, to be my wedded wife/husband/spouse"

Amazing!!! Del made everything happen for us. It was everything we ever wanted!! Couldn't be more greatful 😊😊 We were supposed to fly out to Hawaii however due to COVID-19 we were unable to. We met with Del and applied for shortening of marriage and we got approved and married 1 week later in our backyard on our 10 year anniversary!! We are one very happy couple.

It was so easy to plan our wedding day with the assistance of Del. She is very professional, caring and seems to always have time to work through suggestions and questions. She took all our preferences on board and came up with things that we had not thought of. On the big day, she was totally professional, calm, in control yet caring. Several people commented that she was just the type of person you need: polite but firm. As this was the second marriage for both of us, we wanted something romantic without going over the top and the day turned out perfect. We highly recommend Del to anyone who requires the services of a celebrant or MC, or both (as was the case with us.) Sara and Frans

We were privileged to have Del as our Celebrant for our recent wedding, She was meticulous in her preparation and did all the leg work. She met with us and had us fully prepared for the big day by having us go through rehearsals and providing us with lots of resources. On the big day She was more like a member of the Family going above and beyond and assisting with various aspects of the ceremony that were outside of her scope of work. We were blessed to have someone who knew the importance and level of commitment required to make the ceremony purely magical. One of a kind.

Del was absolutely awesome. Due to covid our wedding was postponed twice and Del was so helpful and great. She is so supportive and could not ask for a better celebrant. I got so compliments for Del during the reception and would highly recommend Del for any of her services.

Choosing Del is random. We did not know her through family or friends. but it turns out an excellent choice. Choosing our spouse is a choice of a lifetime, but isn't choosing your celebrant the same? Del's name, along with the other two witnesses, will be imprinted into and accompany us throughout our lives. In this life journey, we meet with people, get to know them, connect with them emotionally, and hopefully, marry one and only one of them. Our meeting with Del reminds us again of how we should treasure every moment and every encounter. Never take anything, anyone or any moment for granted, for they all become part of our lives, and consequently, our meaning of life. I made a choice of a lifetime when marring my spouse, and we made a choice of a lifetime when choosing Del. Thank you, Del, for becoming part of our life.

Del was absolutely AMAZING! Our original celebrant double booked, honestly it was the best thing that could have happened for us, because Del was so organised, so kind, so efficient! Everything was so well planned and executed - you can tell Del puts a lot of thought into the end experience for her couples, as well as just being a lovely human being! So many of our friends and family came up to tell us how personal and sweet the ceremony was, and how warm and friendly they found Del. It was everything we wanted in a celebrant, and in our ceremony. Beyond the ceremony itself, Del's care and attention to detail was evident from our first consultation chat, right through to the post-ceremony email with details of what was to happen next. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Del to anyone, and are so glad we found her!

Del was amazing to work with throughout the whole planning process. She really took the time to get to know us and recieved so many comments on how beautifully the ceremony reflected us. Del went above amd beyond in making sure we felt supported and well informed every step of the way and took care of all the necessary documents ( thank goodness). She is so warm and friendly, we are so grateful to have had her by our sides from start to finish!

We hired Del as celebrant for our ceremony and MC for our reception. Honestly the best and easiest experience of all our suppliers! Del is an absolute gem, kept the prep on track and the night going regardless of what obstacles came up. Highly recommend! Thank you so much for being there with us Del, couldn't have done it without you xx

Del is absolutely amazing! From the moment we first met her 2 years before the wedding, to the wedding day, we can’t praise her enough. She went above and beyond to ensure everything went perfect, super friendly and easy to talk to, very professional with a great sense of humour. We have had many comments from guests who loved Del’s work. Thanks again Del!

Del was amazing on our special day, helpful, polite, organised, professional and kept in contact with us the whole time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married.

29 Jan 2022

Del is an amazing celebrant. She has a strong eye for detail and creates beautiful ceremonies. My guests absolutely loved her and continued to compliment the ceremony and Del throughout the night. She was easy to work with and made the wedding process so easy for my husband and I. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need for a celebrant.

We finally did it… after being with Del for 7 years we got hitched. All the way back then marriage equality was a pipe dream but now those dreams were turned into a reality. Del makes everything seem so easy, simple and nothing was ever unachievable. The world was our oyster, Del is the most fun and down to earth person and will make your day so enjoyable. Over the 7 years we have not only gained an amazing celebrant but an amazing person we can gladly call our friend. Xx

Del was our celebrant. She is lovely, friendly, professional and efficient. It was great working with her to create our magical day. Definitely recommending her. Her work is amazing and she ensures you are comfortable and relaxed on the day. Thank you Del!

Del was amazing and worked with us through multiple date changes due to lockdowns and covid. She was very accommodating and when the day finally came she was amazing. She made the whole event a memorable one and a special daybwe will never forget.
