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.
