What’s Involved

Naturally, you’ll want (and deserve) to have your wedding celebrated exactly your way. My aim is to prepare and deliver a fantastic ceremony which is 100% in accordance with your wishes. A huge part of my role is to ensure that the whole process of preparation, as well as the actual ceremony, is relaxing and joyful!

This process is really enjoyable when we break it down into small steps, as follows:

  • Step 1: A friendly, no obligation meeting (no charge) to chat about your wishes for your ceremony. We also look at a sample ceremony outline to determine which elements you want.
  • Step 2: We meet again to complete the Notice of Intended Marriage. We also talk about your story as a couple, which I find very enjoyable! (Your information helps me to personalise your ceremony).
  • Step 3: I craft a draft ceremony, based on our discussions and your answers to my questions, and invite you to make any changes you want. We continue to refine the ceremony until you are 100% with it.
  • Step 4: Our last meeting, usually in the week before your wedding. We fine-tune your ceremony: eg position of the bridal party and complete the final pre-wedding legal documentation.
  • Step 5: Your Wedding!

These qualifications and experience mean that I’ve developed the ideal skills set to be an excellent celebrant, which enables you to have peace of mind and great joy in the preparation and experience of your wedding ceremony:

  • Professional project management
  • Outstanding communication, both written and verbal
  • Empathetic listening and gentle guidance when required
  • Calm and commanding crowd management if required

I also speak fluent German and have conducted several ceremonies in German. I’m also able to speak a few sentences in other foreign languages with pronunciation guidelines.

I offer each bridal couple unlimited meetings, emails and phone calls.

I provide sample wedding readings and vows.

I have an excellent sound system with two microphones and an input jack for amplifying music.

I prepare, complete and lodge all legal documentation.

As a qualified counsellor, I offer pre-marital relationship guidance as an extra service.  This is a fun voyage of discovery and rediscovery.

Anna P
Deborah was perfect. We couldn't fault her. She was very professional, was very warm and made us feel at ease. Her communication leading up to the day was above and beyond. She sent us emails outlining everything and any changes she was able to do immediately. She provided us with a vast amount of suggestions on how the ceremony could come together. Suggestions never came forcefully and she respected that we wanted something very short.
Lola L
Deborah was a really lovely lady. She catered to everything that we needed. We were very happy with her services.
Emma D
Deborah did an amazing job with gathering our information so she could feel part of what we were trying to achieve. Her own presentation, sincerity and delivering a story as if she has known you for years drew many positive comments from family and friends. Positive, smiling and warm are just one of the ways we would describe Deborah.
James Erica M
Very nice. Well dressed. Matched her delivery to the feel we wanted for the wedding.
Georgina K
Deborah helped make our special day amazing. Our first celebrant disappeared so we engaged Deborah at the last minute. Deborah, however, helped calm our nerves and put together a wonderful ceremony that will live long in our minds and hearts.
Kelly P
A lovely, positive and professional celebrant. Her creation of our ceremony was so individual & specific to us that everyone left commenting on it! She was flexible to any ceremony structure we wanted and always smiling and calm. Well spoken and presented. We loved her!

We recently required a celebrant for our mother’s funeral and immediately thought of Deb. She was a wonderful celebrant who assisted with the planning, selection of readings and a very balanced view of our requirements. We were most grateful that Deb agreed to be celebrant and would recommend her for similar ceremonies.

Just wanted to thank you sincerely for marrying us last Sunday, and your work leading up to it. You made the whole process both simple and enjoyable for us, and Julia and I had a lot of fun answering those questions you gave us - in fact I feel that the process in some ways brought us even closer together.   The ceremony itself went really well, and everyone I have spoken to about it said you were fantastic!
