Thank you so much Deb, we absolutely loved the ceremony and received a lot of compliments on how fun and lovely it was. Everyone had a great time.
Mum and Dad were especially impressed with the Ceremony. They have been to a few weddings lately and said this one was so much more personal and fun but still keeping the seriousness of a marriage ceremony. They loved it.
Thank again Deb, it was so special. We had the best time.
Keep in touch,

Dear Deborah
Thank you very very much!!!
Thanks for all the things you do and the really nice way you do them.
Bonnie & Jesses's wedding was the best service I have ever heard.
I loved the way you also included their family.
I wanted to write and tell you how much my family and I appreciated the way you conducted my sister Leanne's last passage (adventure to a better place and relief from her pain).
Saying goodbye was so hard, you are so professional and so caring.
You spoke so beautifully and made the service so special.
You are the best.
Thank you Robyn

Hello Deb
Both Simon and I congratulate you on a wonderfully presented ceremony.

Hi Deb,
Thankyou so much for a fab ceremony and all your hard work.
Best Regards,
Hayley Ricato

Deb made the process of getting married a breeze. She was easy to talk to, yet up front and honest. Her correspondence was frequent and always helpful, as Deb answered all of our many questions without a qualm. During the rehearsal Deb was funny and reassuring, directing us where we needed to be. On the big day, Deb was a rock for us both, organising the boys and keeping us both calm and focused on each other. Even during the humorous and emotional ceremony Deb kept her composure and officiated a perfect ceremony.

We would highly recommend Deb to anyone and thank her tremendously for making our day the best it could be. Nicole & Vaughan (Oct 25. 2014)

Hi Deb,

We just wanted to write to say thank you again for the beautiful job you did at our ceremony yesterday. We both loved the service that you put together and will remember your thoughtfulness in the words that you spoke on our special day. You have a true gift
