Dear Danni,
 
Merrick and I want to thank you for being our Marriage Celebrant.
 
We wanted someone to marry us who felt more like a friend than a hired service and that was definitely you. Sharing a laugh and many long chats at our meetings, we knew you would deliver a service that would be truly reflective of our personalities and our relationship, and we were not disappointed on the day.
 
Our guests commented on how sincere the ceremony was, not just a tired ceremony being rolled out again.Your assistance with the paperwork as well as your attention to little organisational things was very much appreciated.
 
Thank you Danni - you really made our day a memorable one.

Dear Danielle,
 
Thank you so very much for making our wedding ceremony such a relaxed, fun and enjoyable experience. From the moment we asked you to be our celebrant we both felt that you encouraged and supported our ideas and thoughts and worked with us to achieve what we felt was a perfect ceremony.
 
You were knowledgeable about what needed to be included in the ceremony but still open to our suggestions and we found your proposed order of ceremony, which took into account all that we had discussed, invaluable. As we had some unique ideas of our own, we loved that you were happy to run with them and although they may have been a little out of the ordinary at no stage did we feel anything but your enthusiasm and shared enjoyment in the preparations for our big day. On the day we were posed with the challenge of a strong breeze and a glaring sun, but you remained composed and both of us were able to take your lead. The proceedings were relaxed and many of our guests commented on what a seamless ceremony and lovely celebrant we had!
 
We would highly recommend you to anyone and would be happy to chat with any couple who would like to know more about our wonderful experience in having you marry us.

As every Bride does, even some from when they are a very little girl, I had an image of my perfect Wedding Day.This perfection being for us a beautiful, bright and love fun filled day. 
 
Incorporating our son's Naming Day with our Wedding Ceremony, Danielle effortlessly guided us through the process adding her experience and beautiful touch to make it amazingly special for us. At not one point did I have the burden of worrying about our ceremony agenda or vows. The confidence that Danielle made us feel in our hearts took a huge weight off of us. Her ability to say the things you want to say in a beautiful and articulate way, makes you feel admiration for her gorgeous nature.
 
Everybody walked away from our ceremony feeling touched by the light that Danielle bought to our special moment. Her infectious smile and brilliant sense of humour suited us down to a tee. I could not imagine any other person completing our day as Danielle did.
 
Thank you Danielle, we will cherish these moments forever!

Danielle conducted our son Jesse's Naming Ceremony at The Pacific Club in Palm Beach and she was great. Her preparation was professional and flawless and the ceremony was moving and very loving. We included various members of the family to read poems and Danielle made all speakers feel very comfortable. It all ran smoothly and I can highly recommend her services.

Dear Danni,
 
We really want to thank you for your fantastic attention to our needs and amazing service provided for our Special Day.
 
We strongly believe that we loved it so much due to the friendship that grew between us, making the ceremony very genuine and real. We really appreciated your recommendation to have a rehearsal as it certainly calmed our nerves. The rest of the day was terrific and we are still smiling from ear to ear.
 
We are happy to give this testimonial or anything else that can assist you in attaining future bookings... just let us know. 
 
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Dear Danni,
 
Thank you so much for helping us enjoy a wonderful day. We wanted a simple ceremony without any fluff and had previously found it difficult to find a Celebrant who was willing to pare a ceremony down as far as we wanted to go. You certainly achieved this while maintaining a fun and effective ceremony. We should also mention how refreshing it was to find a young and vibrant Celebrant.
 
You made us feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the planning process and our Wedding Day - and generally - just made it easy. What every couple wants. We had a fantastic day... THANKS!

Danni,
 
We want to thank you for everything you did to contribute to a memorable day for all involved - especially US!
 
You really put the time in to get to know us both in the meetings we had leading up to our Wedding Day. Because of this, the service perfectly reflected us individually and as a couple. The assistance you provided in writing our vows and ceremony really set the tone for the day and certainly had everyone smiling.
 
Your personal touch and warm personality put us at ease whenever we met you and inspired confidence that the day was going to run smoothly... even when the heavy rain started 15 minutes before our service in the Royal Botanical Gardens.
 
Thanks again and we would certainly recommend your services to our friends and family.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving Adolfo and I a very special day. The Gods were certainly with us in regards to the weather and everything went really well. I even managed to control the tears which surprised me.
 
Your professional manner and lovely nature made everything so easy and flowing and gave us a day to cherish.
 
Thanks once again and all our best wishes.

Dear Danni,
 
We want to say a big thank you for our beautiful Wedding Ceremony. It was amazing and we still get tingly thinking about it!
 
Your attitude. helpfulness, calmness and thoughtfulness were much appreciated in the lead up and on the day. We had lots of people tell us how great they thought you were and are really glad that we'll get to see you again next month at our dear friends' Nick and Lucy's wedding. The fact that you made such an impression on them during our ceremony is a credit to your professional and personal style. We have the best memories of the entire day and the ceremony was definitely key to that.
 
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to another couple. We found the search for a Celebrant quite tricky (there seems to be quite a few strange ones out there!) but are glad we kept searching until we found you.
 
Thank you so very much!

We asked Danni to do the Naming Ceremonies for both our little girls on separate occasions. 

 

They were heartfelt, intimate, natural occassions which all friends and family who attended said was beautiful and they enjoyed. Danni was more than helpful in helping us put together the Ceremony and more than professional, warm and sincere in the delivery. 

 

Thank you Danni!

From our very first meeting with Danni, my husband and I knew she was perfect for our relaxed beach wedding ceremony.

  

We had no idea what was involved with the ceremony but Danni was so helpful and informative throughout the whole process and made sure that she was always available to answer all of our questions. Most of all Danni was willing and open to all of our opinions, ideas and details that mattered to us as well as suggesting things we hadn’t thought of. 

 

So many of our guests commented on how lovely our ceremony was and how personal and perfect it was for us. We even had one of our good friends tell us the very next day they rewrote their upcoming ceremony after hearing ours.

 

Thank you Danni for helping make our special day Perfect!

She said instantly she knew

She was a question to be answered

And his answer was "I do" 


 

Danielle... You are a True Professional!

 

From the moment we contacted you, to our first meeting and right through to the ceremony, you were like a close friend guiding us every step of the way.

 

Your warm, engaging nature gave our ceremony the vibe we were hoping for and your carefully crafted words made it so unique to us.        

 

Thank you!

In Japanese legend, the crane is a mystical creature that lives a thousand years

and are also known as being one of the few creatures who mate for life.

  


 

When it came time to choose a celebrant, we followed the same procedure we used for all the other aspects – venue, cake, photographers, florist etc – which was to create a shortlist of several options based on friends’ recommendations and our own searching, and narrow it down from there. 

 

Danielle was the first of four celebrants we planned to meet up with; she was also the last. We didn’t need to try any others because she was EXACTLY what we were looking for.  She was warm & friendly, articulate & well spoken, and clearly delighted at the prospect of being a part of our day. She did an excellent job of explaining to us what parts of the ceremony were legal obligations and what parts were entirely up to us; she gave a wonderful basic framework upon which, through her clear & thoughtful communication, we created our own unique ceremony. 

 

We – and all our guests – were as delighted with the entire ceremony as we were with Danielle’s friendly and professional support & advice throughout the planning. We’re happy to recommend her to any soon-to-be-weds out there, and thank her once again for contributing to what we’ll always remember as a beautiful, thoughtful and memorable wedding day.

 You're heart just opens up... and is flooded with happiness!

 


 

There are lots of Celebrants around and it is hard to choose the right one!

 

Danielle came to our home three times before we got married and her communication skills are simply second to none. Aside from being such a lovely person, Danielle is honest, down to earth and very professional. 

 

After the wedding we both suggested to Danielle that we go out for dinner as a result of the relationship we formed with her. We also made a special point of telling Danielle that she should charge more for her excellent service but it’s obviously not all about the money for her.   

 

Overall our experience with Danielle was a good as you could hope for with any Marriage Celebrant in Sydney. Feel free to pass on our details, as we would highly recommend your services to others. 

 

Thanks again for everything, you really helped us relax and remember such a lovely day.

May your home be a shelter against the storms, a haven of peace

and a stronghold of faith and love.

 

 

Dear Danni, 

 

It was a true delight to have you as our Wedding Celebrant. The ease of preparation and your commitment to ensuring the service was tailored to our relaxed style, made our Wedding truly special and from the heart. Our guests across all age brackets praised the beauty of the service, which was short and sweet, but said everything we needed to say. 

 

You hold a grace that is a pleasure for all to be around. I encourage all reading this testimonial to know you've found the perfect Celebrant. We have passed your contact details onto five couples who attended our wedding who are wanting you to do the same for them. I wish you all the best for the future. Thank you for being such an important part of our special night.

and feel extraordinarily blessed to have found you!

 

Danielle words cannot express how special our day was, Lee and I are not people who like to be the centre of attention and with your coaching, we made it through the day! You became an integral part of our wedding as you were so keen to understand who we were as people and what we wanted to portray to our friends and family.

 

Your professionalism and compassion shone through on the day of the wedding, but also during the lead up to it.  All we can say is 'Thank you" for making our day so special and one we will always remember with fond memories.

When I was thinking of having a Celebrant to marry Billy and I... it was a simple choice... Danni. A special friend of ours who I worked with and who knew us and our story. I didn't want a wedding with no connection between the Celebrant and us.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect match.  

 

We were very happy and impressed with the professional and personal job Danni did as our Celebrant. This was especially true in relation to being able to let go of the whole process and know that Danni would keep it running smoothly and in a very subtle, fun and uplifting and organised way. As the Bride, I was so relaxed knowing our ceremony was in great hands and all the preparation that could have been done... was done!  

 

Many guests who didn't know Danni commented on what a fabulous Celebrant she was. I would recommend Danni wholeheartedly.

 

Thank you Danni.

Our aim was to find a Celebrant who had the ability and heart to really connect with the kind of ceremony that would reflect what was important to us. I thought it was going to be difficult to find... until we met Danni. We can't thank her enough for creating such a special day for us both.   

 

I can only recommend that if you are looking for a Celebrant who really listens, cares and puts her whole heart into creating a beautiful and personalised ceremony... then you should meet Danielle.  

 

Thank you.

Danni was so fantastic to work with. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and that reflected in the most beautiful personal ceremony service that she wrote specifically for us. Danni was always professional, but made us feel at ease the moment we met her and we knew instantly we wanted her as our Celebrant.

 

Danni made the legal process of getting married really easy. On our actual Wedding Day, she was amazing and delivered our ceremony with confidence, grace and style. We had so many comments from our guests that Danni was the best Celebrant they had ever seen. We couldn't agree more and would highly recommend Danni to anyone needing a Celebrant - we are sure you will not be disappointed.  

 

Thank you so much for making our ceremony as special as it was!

Love is a promise that is always kept,

a fortune that can never be spent,

a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. 

 


 

Danni married Tony and I at the end of 2012. She did an absolutely magical job and as a Bride who knew exactly what I did an didn't want, Danni was perfect. Along with ensuring the actual ceremony went to plan, she was also brilliant in the lead up to the big day.She met with Tony and I on a number of occasions to ensure all the legal 'business' was sorted and made certain she understood exactly what we wanted from our ceremony.  

 

Danni was professional and knowledgeable and guided us and gave suggestions when we needed help. Danni was a good friend to us during this time and was an integral part of our wedding. I feel very blessed that Danni was the person who helped us become Husband and Wife. Her passion for love and marriage was contagious and it really felt she was emotionally invested in our wedding. 

 

If you are looking for a Celebrant who will get to know you and really strive to make your wedding day what you want it to be (no matter big or small, grand or simple)... I cannot recommend Danni highly enough. Thank you.

A huge thank you!  Nick and I are almost a month married and it's a good point in time to reflect on the day.  One of our big reflections has been how fortunate we were with the amazing people we had around us on the day - yourself included.  It is a daunting process looking for a Celebrant, someone who is such an integral part of the day - but we picked well!  You were such a friendly face, warm and down to earth, but also professional and organised.  We knew we were on a to a winner from our very first meeting (your were half Celebrant and half Wedding Planner)!

 

We had lots of comments from friends and family on how intimate and personal our ceremony was.  The way you worked so closely with in drafting the ceremony script is really beautifully done - through our meeting, the questionnaire, and the easy back and forth with drafts where you took our half formed thoughts and turned them into lovely sentences.  On the day, your warm in the delivery was a lovely compliment to the great words. 

 

So thank you!  We would have no hesitations in recommending you to any of our friends and family.  All the best.

Thank you so very much for being our Celebrant. Jimmy and I had the most wonderful day expressing our vows to one another in front of our friends and family... and you helped to create the most magical ceremony. It was exactly what we were after!

 

Thank you for your support and professionalism throughout the planning stages of the ceremony and on the day. It was a challenge for us to be planning our wedding in Sydney while living in the UK, however you were an incredibly calming influence and helped to make the process very streamlined.

 

Many people have commented on how brilliant you were. Both Jimmy and I and all those who were involved in the ceremony just felt so comfortable having you there as our Celebrant to guide us.

 

We will be sure to recommend you to all our family and friends who are looking for a professional, perceptive and fun Wedding Celebrant. So thank you... all the best.

Danni... we can't thank you enough for all you did for us in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. You made our wedding ceremony so special, heartfelt and genuine and you went way above and beyond anything we expected.  

 

We are so appreciative of everything you did for us - from travelling many a time for meetings and the rehearsal, to the writing of the ceremony, organising the paperwork and even putting the buttonholes on the Groom and Groomsmen on the day! Your delivery of the ceremony was absolutely flawless and graceful and all of our guests commented on your beautiful presence.  You are a true gem!  

 

Thank you for offering all your love and time to the most special day of our lives. We could not have wished for anything more.

Thank you so much for being our Wedding Celebrant... you did such a wonderful job!

 

You tailored our ceremony just for us and it was perfect, it really reflected us as a couple, relaxed, light hearted and humorous. We received so many lovely comments from guests about how you married us and it was lovely to be married by someone who felt more like a friend than a stranger.

 

A big thanks again,

Danni, we would like to send our heartfelt thanks to you for making our big day so memorable. From the first meeting with you over coffee, your bubbly personality and professional attitude shone through. Without your help and advice, we wouldn't have had such an emotional and personal day. You took the time to listen to us and understand what we wanted from our ceremony, making it unique. Our guests thought the ceremony was wonderful and touching and we received many compliments.  

 

Your warmth and kindness on the day made us both feel at ease and we managed to get through the ceremony with only a few tears! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone requiring a Celebrant.  

 

Thank you for a truly amazing and personal wedding ceremony.

Ciao Danni, 

 

Anna and I wanted to say a big thank you for being our Marriage Celebrant. 

 

We were looking for something short, sweet and simple that incorporated our immediate family.  You helped us personalise our Ceremony so that it was not only quite unique but also reached out to our congregation – all of which commented on how appropriate, beautiful and relaxed the Ceremony was.  Your warm personality complimented the feeling within our hearts and this reached out to our now combined families, which also includes you! 

 

We were surprised at the amount of work and effort you put into planning our day.  In our meetings, we were able to connect with you through laughter and tears in sharing our backgrounds.  Even our children warmed to you and had you in stitches!  The commitment you put into our meetings was reflected in the beautiful words you presented throughout our Ceremony. 

 

The result was a special and personalised Ceremony, one that we have since cherished and shared many joyful tears together with friends, family and ourselves.  We are very grateful you planned, prepared and formalised our nuptials and we thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. 

 

With Love...

Thank you for so much for helping us make our wedding day such an amazing and special experience.From the moment we first met you we knew that you were the perfect person to marry us. Your attention to detail and warm commitment to conveying our personal story through your narrative was very touching and added to the uniqueness of our Ceremony.

 

We are so thankful that you were able to help guide us so effortlessly through the whole wedding process and bring our dreams into reality.

Dear Danni, 

 

We can’t thank you enough for making our Wedding Ceremony such a fun, happy and magical experience. From our first meeting you made us both feel like our Ceremony could truly be unique and about us. We LOVED that our Ceremony was honest to us and even had a few laughs. 

 

We have received so much positive feedback from our friends and family on how you conducted the day and how wonderful they thought you were, we obviously already knew this from the meetings we had prior and knew that you were the perfect Celebrant for us. 

 

Thank you for encouraging us to have a rehearsal, it was a great opportunity to get my nerves and giggles out of the way so on the day, I was cool as a cucumber. 

 

All Our Love...

Dear Danni,

 

Thank you so much for being our Wedding Celebrant on 16 November 2013. It was the second marriage for us both and was of course a very special occasion for us and our families.  We wanted a simple and happy but meaningful ceremony in the park and you provided exactly that! 

 

Your advice and preparation was spot on and your conduct of the ceremony struck just the right note.  Your genuine warmth and professionalism shone through and made the occasion so happy and successful.  Having also been present at a wonderful Naming Ceremony performed by you, we would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.

 

Sincerely,

You are, and always will be, the love of my life!

 


 

Dear Danni... Like most couples we started our search for a Celebrant online and your website was one of the first ones we came across. After sending you an enquiry, you were quick to respond and we had a meeting arranged within a week or so – no fuss!

 

You were fun, relaxed, well spoken and flexible. You clearly outlined what the next steps would be should we select you as our Celebrant. We both felt really comfortable around you and loved your style, so the decision to choose you was easy. In fact, I think we phoned you that same afternoon to lock you in! In our minds, it wasn’t necessary to meet any other Celebrants.

 

While not a ‘must have’ we also appreciated the fact that you were familiar with our venue. In the lead up to the ‘big day’ you were very easy to communicate with, always responsive via email. Happy and willing to make suggestions and help us write our story. You were able to email us a range of inclusions for consideration. We enjoyed meeting you in person for a second time over a glass of wine to nut out some finer details and also at our rehearsal. Nothing was too much trouble and the experience from beginning to end was seemless and never stressful. 

 

On the day everything went the way we planned, our only regret was not having much of an opportunity to say good-bye to you properly as we were so caught up in the moment! For the time you put into preparation and meetings, and conducting the ceremony itself, we felt your fee for services was more than reasonable. We'll never forget your contribution to our wedding day, and would absolutely recommend you to others in a heartbeat. 

 

Wishing you all the very best for what is sure to be a bright future for you (and your business) ahead.

Being new to Sydney we didn't know anyone who could refer us to a good Marriage Celebrant. We thought we would approach several to see who would work best with us. We met Danni first and decided on the spot that we definitely wanted Danni to perform this special role and looked no further.

Danni's effervescent personality, warmth and kindness and her impeccable professionalism won our hearts and we were not disappointed on the day. Danni clearly is gifted in her vocation as a Marriage Celebrant. She took the time to get to know us, was flexible and creative in her approach and was able to produce something that we felt truly suited us. The result was a perfect ceremony.

We loved Danni and view her now as our friend. Thank you Danni for everything!

When it came to choosing a Celebrant, we wanted someone who was modern, yet classy, and someone who could create a a warm and friendly atmosphere for our wedding. Danni was the first, and only, Celebrant we met up with. We had planned to meet up with some others, but we were completely blown away from the first meeting with Danni's professionalism, warmth and desire for our ceremony to be exactly as we wanted it.

 

No detail was too much for Danni, and she went to great lengths to get to know us as individuals, and as a couple. We really felt that Danni was delighted to be involved in our day and that enthusiasm and positivity was evident throughout the planning process and the big day. Danni was articulate and emotive for our wedding, and we really cannot recommend Danni more highly to all those seeking a celebrant. Our guests commented on what a beautiful ceremony Danni created, and how engaging she was to listen to.

 

We would like to thank Danni for creating a ceremony that was everything we dreamt of. Her class, her friendliness, and her professionalism are all outstanding traits that we loved, and would definitely recommend her to all.

 

Thank you so much Danni... you played such a incredible role in creating the most amazing wedding day for us!

And this radiance that never fades,

this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all,

one known only by those who love.

We met with several lovely Celebrants in the planning of wedding but it was Danielle Ledgerwood who stole our hearts and minds. Her professionalism, enthusiasm, serenity, radiance, and good old fairy dust spark was what made her a perfect match for us. We followed our instincts and were not disappointed.

  

Danni went above and beyond to make our day special and was an integral part of the planning process - making it fun, easy and just that extra bit special. It was a privilege to have her standing beside us and guiding us through such an important day of our lives - she will always be our guardian angel of love radiating warmth and sunshine under our 'love tree'.

 

Thank you Danni for being the best celebrant we could have ever wished for. We heart you :)

Dear Danni,

 

Our wedding on Cockatoo Island and the memories are fresh in our minds every day. Thank you so much for making this day both memorable and stress-free, so that we could really enjoy it!

 

From the first glass of vino that we shared with you at our initial meeting through the rehearsal at our place and then all the way to our special day, we knew we were in good and professional hands. For us it felt like having a long time friend celebrating with us. 

 

All the best and a big thank you again!

As you wear your rings...

Wear them in joy, because you have brought happiness to each other. 

Wear them in peace, because you have brought serenity into each other’s life. 

And wear them in bliss, because you have brought true grace to each other. 

 


Once Scott and I were engaged, we both knew we didn't want to get married in a church. We wanted a casual yet elegant outdoor ceremony and that obviously meant we needed to find a Celebrant. We have attended many weddings in recent years and we found some Celebrants to be either too 'cheesy', 'over the top', or even old fashioned.

 

It was when I attended the wedding of a close girlfriend of mine, and saw Danielle conduct the ceremony, I knew she was 'the one'. Beautifully spoken and elegantly dressed, it was clear she was utterly professional and had a wonderful vibe about her. I immediately mentally booked her in for our own wedding and indeed, she did an equally fabulous job.

 

A real 'people person', nothing is too hard for Danni and she will work with and facilitate  whatever you want to do - and suggest ways to incorporate as little or as much detail as you want. Having such a friendly and warm celebrant certainly took the stress out of the 'serious' part of the day and I can't thank her enough for helping us to create some beautiful memories that we will remember forever.

Dear Danni... I just wanted to write and say a very big thank you from Michael and myself for making our wedding day at Long Reef Golf Club so fantastic!

 

We had such a great day and the ceremony ran so smoothly thanks to you! Was the best day of our lives! Thank you for your patience, kindness and guidance throughout the last 12 months. Michael and I knew we had the right person as you were so relaxed and fun right from the beginning. We were looking for someone who shared the same look on life as us, someone who could connect with us and create an atmosphere that made people feel comfortable and relaxed but at the same time made the ceremony simple, fun and straight to the point and this is exactly what you did, so thank you so much!

 

Its been such a pleasure getting to know you, you are so lovely and kind and I wish you all the best for the future! We were so glad we got to share our special day with you, thank you for all your hard work!

Dear Danni... After meeting you for the first time, we were confident and happy to have you as our Celebrant. You provided us with a relaxed and comfortable environment, which is so important for Bride and Groom to be. Your professionalism and organisational skills allowed us to feel at ease every step of the way. 

 

Having been to other weddings, we also wanted to ensure our Celebrant was articulate, well spoken and clear and you ticked all of those boxes and more. Thank you for helping us stay organised throughout and and at ease with our civil ceremony and for making our day wonderful.

We would both like to sincerely thank you for being our Celebrant for our wedding in April. Your involvement and support helped make it the best day of our lives. We were very impressed with your service and communication for the lead up to the day, especially your genuine interest in our story that helped you write the ceremony speech. You made us feel very involved, but your caring approach really made the difference on the day.

 

We received many compliments on your service from our guests and we feel that this is something special to share with you. Thank you very much again; we would recommend you to anyone that desires a friendly, professional and reliable Wedding Celebrant.

Danni... Having received a recommendation from a good friend, we got in touch with you and were so glad we did. From our first meeting we knew we wanted you to be our Celebrant, we loved your passion, enthusiasm and genuine care about our big day and we felt so relaxed and comfortable in your company. 

 

You wrote us the most beautiful ceremony, capturing our special moments, giving our guests a personal insight into our relationship. You listened to exactly what we wanted - it was so carefully and perfectly put together. We had so many compliments from friends and family on the day not only about the content but also about what a wonderful, professional and personable Celebrant we had. With you by our side, we knew things would run seamlessly so we were relaxed and able to enjoy those wonderful moments! Thank you!

Danni what can we say? You were absolutely terrific and made our day so special.

 

You really took the time to get to know us, as individuals and as a couple and it was great having that personal touch (and humour) injected into our ceremony. With all the unrelated wedding issues leading up to the day, your approach was calming and you made us feel relaxed and confident that the ceremony was going to be just as we wanted…and it was! Thank you for making our day so memorable and the lead up so enjoyable.

Sometimes when you have concept or idea, it can be hard to articulate this to someone, especially someone you have not met before .... But not with you! Thank you for being you, this is what helped to make our Wedding Day unique and memorable.

 

From our easy, fun first meeting, filled with laughter, through to your understanding, interpretation of how we hoped our day would be. Your questionnaire that allowed Ken and I to get to know & love new little bits about each other. You encompassed tradition & formality with our passion for a relaxed and flowing ceremony, including family and friends. Your beautiful, calm nature meant our day was romantic, touching and filled with laughter. Just perfectly, as we wanted.

Hello Danni... We wanted to sincerely thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so wonderful! We initially thought that we would have to see a number of Celebrants before deciding on who to go with, but we both agreed right after our first meeting with you, that you would be the right Celebrant for us. 

 

We loved our service and sincerely appreciated that you worked and planned with us not only on the day of the wedding, but months and weeks in advanced. The whole day went very smoothly and it really helped us relax. The whole experience was easy, pleasant and most importantly, we had fun!

Thank you for your all your help in organising our wedding ceremony, we are very grateful for all your assistance and we were pleased to have shared our special day with you. I loved that you gave us ample freedom to design a ceremony which was very personal and that you spent the time to get to know us as individuals to accommodate this. It was always a pleasure meeting with you and we could not have asked for a better Celebrant, you were very professional however also very down to earth, which made us both feel very comfortable. Thank you again for being the best Celebrant and making our day everything we could have asked for.

From the beginning, in Danni, we could not have asked for a more passionate, professional and friendly Celebrant to carry out our Wedding.  Anyone reading this will know (or is about to learn), it is not easy finding a Celebrant online. And how it is impossible to connect with anyone with just a simple Google search. Lucky for us, Danni’s recommendation came early, via a close friend, making the rest of planning process a walk in the park.

 

Through just a few meetings, Danni was able to create a beautiful, warm-hearted ceremony that reflected our personalities and lives together so far. Think of your first meeting as an interview. Understandably, you want to know you and your partner will be in safe hands. Little do you know, you are the interviewee, the note taking has already begun and your ceremony is beginning to take shape. We felt comfortable to chat openly and engage in the ceremony-writing process every step of the way.

 

We recommend Danielle Ledgerwood to any committing couple, to choose her as their Celebrant. Communication with Danni during the ceremony- building process, is open and flexible. Final editorial say remains wholly with the client. Sincerity, care and professional are just a few words to describe the touch she brings.

The decision to choose Danielle as our Marriage Celebrant was an easy one to make. It was evident from our first meeting with her that she was a cut above the rest. Her warmth, professionalism and compassion remained constant throughout the entire wedding preparation process, and especially on the big day itself. Danielle is passionate about her job, and it really does show. She took the time to understand our story, and stayed in constant contact with us during the months leading up to the wedding day. We couldn't have chosen a better Celebrant to have married us. Thanks again Danni.

Danielle was our first choice for our Wedding Celebrant. Her professionalism, friendly manner and guidance on how we should run our ceremony, made for a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable day. She has so many options on how to run your ceremony, suggestions for readings and an eagerness to make sure you get exactly what you want. Danni helped us both prepare for the ceremony and ensured any nerves were well under control. Our guests made so many unsolicited comments about how much they liked Danni and how she ran the ceremony. We had a fantastic day and are so glad Danni was part of it. Thank you Danni!

We feel so fortunate to have chosen Danielle as our celebrant. This was 2nd time round for both of us and we had a very clear idea of what we wanted but needed guidance on how to achieve it. Right from the start Danielle was warm and professional. Her ability to relax us and build rapport allowed for some very helpful free flowing discussion and before long we had made a great deal of progress towards creating the perfect ceremony for us.

 

Danielle was authentic and friendly and we felt she was genuinely interested in us as people and desired only the best outcome for us. Danielle is a very well presented woman who has an understated elegance mixed with a personable approach. You immediately know you are in safe hands with her. Many of our guests on the day commented on how well the celebrant performed. She set the mood and tone of the whole wedding with her warm and sincere approach. It was like having an old friend marry us. She engaged well with our children and guests and made us feel at ease.

 

She seemed to know instinctively when to move to allow us to be in photos alone. She did not steal the show, wear an outrageous outfit or steal attention away from the bride like so many celebrants do. She was intuitive, respectful, appropriate and professional and her approach made all the difference to our wedding.

 

We will always be so grateful to Danielle for the work she did to prepare us and support us to have the wedding of our dreams. We can not speak highly enough of Danielle and we recommend her services without hesitation.

Danielle was recommended to us by our venue as we were not from the Gold Coast, and we are so happy that we had her for our Wedding Celebrant. Upon our first meeting, we knew that we had made the right choice, as she was warm and friendly and made us feel at ease. Danni listened to what we wanted from our ceremony, and made some invaluable suggestions to make the ceremony more about us - I loved that she had so many options for different readings, and she really took the time to get to know us as a couple, which made our ceremony so much more personal. 

 

Danni kept in close contact with us in the months leading up to the wedding, and was always available to answer any emails or calls I had. She walked us through our rehearsal, and made us feel so much calmer about the big day. On the day, Danni was excellent - she was warm and engaging and super professional. We had so many comments from our friends and family on what a good job she did, and how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

 

Thanks again Danni, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is getting married!
