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 made the entire lead up to our wedding stress-free and enjoyable. She is super organised and nothing but professional. We loved her personal service and willingness to accommodate. Del's warmth and experience make her the perfect celebrant!

31 Dec 2021

Working with Del in the lead up to our wedding was a flawless process. Del was the perfect balance of professional, approachable and fun, and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. On our wedding day, Del was incredible and made sure that everyone was comfortable, stress-free and excited. Del did a great job in organising our photographer, videographer and band, and also made sure the bridal party was ready and prepped with everything we needed to know. Del made sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted, and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

18 Dec 2021

Del provided us with the most beautifully written ceremony and nothing was too much of an ask. She took the time to get to know us and our story to ensure that everything was personal and unique to us.

22 Nov 2021

Del was the most caring and amazing celebrant we could have asked for! She made sure every step of the process was clear and had answers for all our questions. Our guests all commented on her unique and genuine ceremony, and my wife and could not have asked for a better ceremony! Thank you so much for you time care and dedication to our wedding!

22 Nov 2021

From the bottom of our hearts we can’t thank you enough for everything leading to and on our wedding day. From the first time we met with you, we felt as though we gained a special person in our lives. You were there for us every step of the way (even through our postponement due to COVID). You got to know us and by doing so, you wrote our story into our ceremony. Our friends and family could feel the care and love you put into it. It was loving, magical and fun – our day would not have been complete without you! Del, you will always be a part of our story now, and we are so grateful to have you ingrained in our life.

Del was THE BOMB… THE BOMB! I do not know what we would have done without her! With unforseen circumstances there was siginificant delays with our ceremony and she handled it so well with guests and the groom & wife!!! Each and every guest complimented on how smoothly the ceremony went despite the circumstances. Furthermore, from consultations to leading up to the big day, Del checked upon us on how we were going and was really a motherly figure to us! So thank you so much Del from the bottom of our hearts! Would really really recommend Del as your marriage celebrant as you will NOT REGRET!!!! Del, you were abosolute gem! Thank you so much once again! All the best with many more years ahead With love Mr & Mrs Lee

Del is an amazing wedding Celebrant. From the moment we spoke over the phone to book a meeting up until the very end. So supportive and helpful every step of the way, easy to talk to and open to our request for changes. Absolutely best in the business.

25 Jun 2021

Del was absolutely wonderful to work with. We had signed our Notice of Intended Marriage in December 2019 and married 18 months later. Del took us through the process step by step and continued to communicate with us while we we were deciding on a final wedding date. On the day we had to deal with winds that unfortunately carried our marriage certificate off the cliff! But Del, being so very organised and professional, had a spare certificate for us. Disaster averted! We would highly recommend Del and will be reaching out to her again when we arrange to renew our vowels.

18 Jun 2021

Del was incredible! She helped us with our vows and tailoring the ceremony to suit my husband and I perfectly. We could not have asked for a better person to marry us. We cannot recommend Del enough!

17 Jun 2021

Del is lovely and generous. She listened to what we wanted and delivered to perfection. Our day was better than we imagined it could be. This was thanks to Del and we wholeheartedly recommend her to you for your special day.

5 Jun 2021

A beautiful woman and celebrant, who took the time to advise us and get to know us. Del just made our "perfect" ceremony intimate and personal. We would recommend Del Edwards to anybody who is looking for that personal touch to their ceremony.

14 May 2021

Such a down to earth Celebrant, always goes above and beyond and nothing is a hassle for her. Del had alot of suggestions on how to include loved ones who have passed and also how to include lobed ones in the ceremony. Thank you so much Del for our amazing day!
