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

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What documents do I need?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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 amazing. She is really kind and you could tell that she cared about us having a good day. She was helpful and easy to communicate with from start to finish. I also found that she was the most reasonably priced celebrants though there was no loss on the quality of the service she provided. It was hard to decide on a celebrant at first but once I spoke to Del and heard her calm and soothing voice I knew that’s who I wanted. Thank you again Del

Beautiful person and so lovely to work with! She took the time to really talk to us and know our story. Everyone loved her at the ceremony and we couldn't thank her enough for an amazing wedding service. So glad we chose Del!

Del was welcoming from the first moment we met. She took the time to listen and really get to know my partner and I. Throughout the process she kept in touch with us for wedding related things and even for the birth of our twins. Nothing was ever too much trouble and on the day of our wedding she was wonderful, speaking to our family and friends and getting involved. I can not speak highly enough of her and thank her immensely for making our wedding day perfect.

Del was incredible. From first contact to the actual day, Del was friendly, informative, warm, professional and so easy to get along with. We wanted someone who would make the process easy and fun and this was Del. Del taylored the ceremony to our needs. We went into it not knowing what we wanted our ceremony to look like and with Del's guidance, we ended up with the perfect one for us. We highly recommend Del.

Del is a wonderful celebrant. She is professional, and responds to emails very quickly. She is friendly and easy going. She was good at directing people before and during the ceremony. I would happily recommend her service.

Del helped us to create the perfect ceremony and told our story perfectly. It was amazing to have our ceremony personalised to us as it made us feel come comfortable and also created some laughs! Del made the whole process very stress free.

From the moment we met Del we felt comfortable and at ease. Writing our ceremony and vows was a little daunting, but Del was fantastic at giving us guidance and feedback where we needed it. She was easy to contact and very prompt with responding to our many questions. On the day she ensured everything went smoothly and everyone was taken care of. We would highly recommend Del as a marriage celebrant to anyone who was looking, she was AMAZING!

12 Jul 2020

We were absolutley honoured to have Del as our celebrant. From the first phone call and the very first day we met her, we felt comfortable and knew she was what we needed on our day. Del is such a kind-hearted, beautiful, supportive, calming, organised and professional celebrant. She is highly recommended to anyone getting married in the future! Thank you so much Del for making our day special!

Del was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She took the time to explain everything to us and made everything leading upto the event as easy as possible. Her calming nature made all nerves disappear and allowed us to enjoy the moment to it's fullest. Her personalised ceremony was very touching. Everyone was so impressed and moved at how beautiful of a ceremony she did. Del is professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend.

2 Nov 2019

Del is absolute perfection from beginning to end. Our day was a magical happily ever after because Del made everything run smoothly and also personalised our ceremony to make it about our love story and included our close family and friends in our ceremony. Del played the music we chose for our ceremony without hesitation and her organisational skills are impeccable. If you want a perfect, personalised ceremony check in with Del for a coffee, some tim tams and a chat to see what she can do for you xoxo

My husband and I were blessed to have Del solemnise our wedding. She is so beautiful, gracious and kind. She was professional in every process and meeting and also has a genuine kindness and warmth. She made us feel safe and assured. I felt extremely nervous about all the eyes on me, but she spoke so beautifully and calmly it gave me ease. I could not have chosen anyone better.

5 Oct 2019

The best we would ask for. All our guest was very impressed with our celebrant&MC sense of humor. We loved her thanks for being part of our special day. Doreen & Marek
