Love Notes...

“You haven’t met a wedding celebrant until you have met Deanna! Deadset is the nicest person that actually cares about your wedding, her personality is next-level and soooo professional.

I had zero clue what I was doing in terms of weddings but Deanna made EVERYTHING flow, gave us fresh ideas to use, and made sure I knew what to do & say also what not to say in my vows haha (foot in mouth stuff) and made me a comfortable and confident groom in the process!

She is so calm and knows how to welcome all our guests to ensure they feel included with her well-spoken words and effortless presentation.

Deanna, from the bottom of my heart & Erin’s hearts we thank you for making our day that extra special. We couldn’t have had the magical day we had without Deanna and her support.”

Deanna was absolutely faultless! From the moment we met her we felt comfortable & at ease. Deanna offered constant communication, professional & personalised advice. She was fun, modern & honest, and felt like family on our wedding day. Highly professional & highly recommended.

How lucky are we to have had Deanna as our celebrant.Deanna went above and beyond to make our day perfect, and we honestly cannot thank her enough. She was professional, kind, accomodating, a breath of fresh air on a day where things change sporadically. We would recommend her over and over.11/10!!

Deanna is very professional, authentic and personable- she’ll make you feel comfortable and at ease with her beautiful nature, warm personality and wicked sense of humor.

When Deanna married both Tracey and I on Long Island resort nearly 13 years ago , we could not have asked for a more professional and well presented person to oversee our marriage vows We are both indebted to her as a person and a professional and would highly recommend her to any aspiring brides and grooms out there considering on taking their vows

I have worked with Deanna at our wedding venue since 2011 and her professionalism is faultless. Deanna’s ceremonies exude heart felt warmth and joy with happy tears and laughter often emanating from the gathering. Whilst also being impeccably presented, her calm and unflappable demeanour provides reassurance for even the most nervous of couples. One thing I have personally recognised, is Deanna’s friendly interaction which makes each guest feel as though they are very much part of the ceremony.

Tanya Watts 31/03/2023

Deanna is such a beautiful, kind and well spoken celebrant and I felt very connected to our ceremony and remember it as such a beautiful part of our wedding day. Chosing a celebrant is very important as you should feel comfortable with them at the main part of the day and I couldn’t have been more comfortable with her during the planning and on the day.THANK YOU DEANNA!
