We booked Deborah to be our wedding celebrant after meeting her for our venue tour at Marybrooke Manor, and were so happy with our choice the whole way through! Deborah was really easy to work with, was accommodating and made sure she got to know us before the big day. We felt supported in understanding what the options were for the ceremony, and were provided examples of various inclusions, which was a big help in choosing what we did or didn’t want to do. We would highly recommend Deborah to anyone looking for a caring, engaging, professional and easy to get along with celebrant!

Deborah is the queen of weddings. So experienced, very organised and highly professional. She anticipated our needs before we even knew we had them and had endless tips that guided us through our ceremony.   Deborah injected her wit and humour into the day but balanced it perfectly with the seriousness of the commitment we were making.

There was a relaxed and meaningful atmosphere for the whole ceremony, allowing us to confidently express ourselves to each other and our loved ones.   We can not thank Deborah enough for how special she made our day. We honestly can’t imagine our wedding without her.

Jason and I just wanted to say thank you so so much for being apart of our wedding ceremony. We are very happy that you were the one that made us offical! The day was very busy and full on so we did not get the chance to thank you after the ceremony. You were truly terrific and we had so many people come up to us and say you did fantastic! We also had so many positive comments on our vows, and the entire ceremony. It could not have been more perfect. So thank you! ?Ps we are loving married life! ??

Deborah, was amazing. She made the process (paperwork and all) so simple. She even provided us with a list of songs that we may like – which was great, as this was where we getting stuck! She accommodated all of our requests for special wording in the ceremony and made such an impression on my Mum, that mum has been recommending her to people!

Rebecca & Tony Gigliotti – November 2019

It will be a holiday to remember forever! We’ll definitely be recommending your services to anyone who asks, (and everyone who will listen).

Lydia & Tony Morris – September 18th 2019 – Lilydale, VIC

We were very impressed and happy with everything our celebrant did for us, nothing was a problem, we even notified and spoke to her about problems we were having in regards to our wedding that didn’t have a direct effect on her role in our wedding, and she was more than happy to help us both. She was always contactable all the time and at any time, and was very efficient in getting back to us if we wanted to change or alter anything……….

Melissa & Matt – July 21st 2019 – Croydon, VIC

Thank you for being our celebrant. From date change to surprise wedding you were amazing. Our ceremony was heartfelt, personal and beautiful. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed our special day but not as much as we did. Our wedding could not have been more perfect”
