Del Edwards

Civil Marriage Celebrant


I love curling up with a romantic novel, crying at the movies, going to the beach and dining out with family and friends (especially if there is champagne involved). For me, deciding to become a Marriage Celebrant was an easy choice. I had been doing a lot of event planning, fund-raisers and public speaking for a number of years and Celebrancy seemed like a natural progression. I completed Certificate IV in 2010 and was registered by the Government. Now I can conduct a ceremony anywhere in Australia!

With a background in administration and customer service, I have always been a 'people person'. I've been told that I have an instinct when it comes to understanding what is required for that special occasion. I love my job – really love it. People are unique and surprising and everyone has a story that they like to tell. I help them create ceremonies that express their love, life and beliefs. I love writing ceremonies that make people smile. If I sound like the right Celebrant for you, contact me now. I would love to be a part of your special day!

Reviews

Wish we could give Del more than 5 stars! she is truly amazing; she prepared a ceremony for us that felt completely unique. She pays so much attention to detail and goes the extra mile to ensure that the whole event runs smoothly. She absolutely put the 'Special' in our day and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant.

Diane and Glen, July 2018

We couldn’t of wished for anyone more lovely, kind hearted and professional than Del, she was very helpful with suggestions, super organised and attentive with both me and my husband. We married in her back garden which was beautiful and she even went to extra lengths to make it picture perfect by adding a beautiful arch for us to marry under. Our wedding guests commented on how unique the ceremony was as it was so personal and romantic, Del went above and beyond for us and we couldn’t recommend her enough to absolutely anyone getting married, she really belongs in the job she is in, she is fab!

Hettie and Blake, Apr 2018

Del is both fabulous and fantastic. We wouldn’t have been able to make it without her. We knew straight away that we were in good hands as she guided us all the way through and even went extra mile to research poems and other stuff for teacher and doctor as well as saying welcome in Chinese language. She is passionate, professional, patient, thoughtful and super organized. Because of her, we could be so relaxed and have fun on our day as well as being able to enjoy every single minute of our wedding ceremony. Thank you is not enough to express our appreciation towards Del’s guidance, support and help along the process. We LOVE her wedding prescriptions very much. Also, we now have to do the homework that she set for us: to say' I love you ' 1000 times every day to each other!!!

Anna and Ben, Apr 2018

We loved having Del as our celebrant. She was calm and patient and was very fitting with exactly the kind of people we are and what type of ceremony we wanted. I can’t recommend her enough.
