Ann and her husband Steve have permanently relocated to Terranora (a little south of Tweed Heads) – the testimonials below are from her happy couples in Sydney, Northern NSW and Queensland. Ann will travel for weddings.

We chose Ann after attending a friend’s wedding where Ann was the celebrant. Ann was amazing and went far beyond what you would expect from a celebrant. She was so thorough in detail, was so great in relaxing us both pre-ceremony and was just an absolute delight to deal with. Ann tailors her ceremonies so that each is unique. We received so many positive comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and that it was the best that they’d ever seen due to Ann. If you’re after a celebrant who offers great advice, pays attention to the detail and can guarantee you an oustanding service in every single way – there aren’t any celebrants better than Ann Dally. I’d reccommend her a million times over!

There’s no combination of the letters of the alphabet that can fully express how grateful we are for everything you did for us on our special day. From your beautiful home, your kind words, your patience throughout the whole entire process it was a pleasure and a joy to get married by you. You went above and beyond for Foday and I to relax and feel comfortable in your lovely home. I honestly had a million dollar wedding without the dollars. You made the whole planning process so easy on us and we are so grateful for your help. We are so lucky that we stumbled across you because you were the perfect fit for us and we couldn’t imagine anyone else marrying us. You really went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank you enough. We received so many compliments on the venue and how expensive and unique our wedding looked. I may not have the money, but you made sure I didn’t go without the glamour. I would absolutely recommend you to any couples who is seeking for a professional and kind celebrant to help them plan their unique ceremony. So lastly thank you for being the best wedding celebrant there’s and I will forever be grateful for everything you’ve done for us. We love and appreciate you.

Ann was amazing! To be honest the ceremony was something I was quite passionate about: I didn’t want anything religious or too over the top. I wanted to inject some humour (but not too much), while keeping the words very ‘us’. Ann was super helpful in letting us write our own vows and also providing guidance on how to go about my changing name and taking care of the certificate and registery. The thing I loved most, though, was that even though the weather turned out less than perfect (ie it was raining all day), Ann helped us make the important decisions about where to move the ceremony, how to fit everyone under cover and took most of the stress away from me. Even now, 2 weeks after the wedding she’s still helping me out! She’s the best!

We chose Ann to be our celebrant for our wedding 23/7/16 at Lakelands Golf Club. Ann was extremely professional to deal with and made our wedding very special!! Nothing was too much trouble for Ann and we had guests commenting on how special our ceremony was! Ann goes above and beyond to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that your ceremony is exactly how you want it. Recommend ++++ Thank you Ann!!
– MAN SHEK N.
Ann was so kind and has a heart of gold. She guided us so smoothly through the whole wedding process – made everything easier because we live in Hong Kong. We had the perfect wedding day – better than we ever imagined. She is a true professional who took away all the stress. Awesome! Thanks Ann
– MICHELLE G
Ann was wonderful, we could not have been happier with the way our ceremony went. She made us feel so at ease. We loved the fact she included our Mums in the ceremony and my step daughter, it was very special. Thank you.
– BLAISE H
We can’t thank Ann enough for everything she did for us leading up to and on our wedding day. Ann is a wonderful wedding celebrant. We were amazed by her incredible professionalism, organisation and all of the effort she put into making our ceremony unique and meaningful to us. Leading up to our wedding we had to change our ceremony venue and Ann went out of her way by visiting the new location to check the layout would still work how we had planned. We have had so many friends and family comment on what a fantastic ceremony it was and everything ran so smoothly on the day. Ann also provided us lots of handy hints relating to wedding planning in general. I could not fault a single thing. Thanks Ann! Highly recommend!
– JULIA & MACKEN
Ann was so kind and has a heart of gold. She guided us so smoothly through the whole wedding process – made everything easier because we live in Hong Kong. We had the perfect wedding day on her magnificent property – more beautiful than we ever imagined. She is a true professional who took away all the stress. Awesome!
– TOM AND RENEE CREIGHTON
Ann was amazing! 10 out of 10! She was so professional and made us feel at ease about all aspects of the wedding including members of our families that don’t get along – nothing was an issue!.
We would highly recommend using Ann as she made our ceremony flow beautifully and our guests couldn’t stop commenting about how professional she was and the best they had seen.
– LEANNE AND DEANO
Thanks for everything you did to make our day so special and joyful – we got so many comments saying it was the best wedding ever!
All the best
Leanne and Deano
– JODIE AND BILL TATCHELL
I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our day perfect. Words cannot express what an amazing day we had, and your service was perfect.
I would not change a thing about the day and wish I could do it every day!
It is the perfect start to the next chapter in our lives, one that will be full of love and laughter, and a little less drama and stress!!
We can’t wait for our Renewal of Vows and before that, Harry’s naming day – we will get to that one soon too!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us create the prefect wedding.
Jodie and Bill Tatchell
– LISA AND SCOTT GREGORY
From the moment we met Ann at our initial consultation, we knew she was going to be perfect!
She was so professional and so organised and had a wonderful sense of humour which fitted my husband and I to a tee! We discussed what we had envisioned our ceremony would be and Ann was able to incorporate it all, plus offer tips and advice on how to tweak our ideas to make the ceremony suit us perfectly!
The end result was phenomenal!
A mixture of romance, humour and sentimental words left my husband and I as well as all of our guests, commenting on her work – still to this day!
Ann truly is a master of her craft and we cannot thank her enough for everything she helped us with! She went above and beyond the duty of a celebrant and brought things to our attention that I had not even considered!
Years of experience have made her an encyclopaedia of knowledge on all things to do with weddings! My highest, highest, highest, recommendation is to have Ann as your celebrant – she is simply amazing!
– DANIELLE AND NOEL
Thank you for being so wonderful both before and on our wedding day.
All our guests loved our ceremony, especially our vows with the funny personal snippets. Everything went so perfectly – thanks to you!
Kindest regards Danielle and Noel
– KRISTY & MARK AKRIGG
Mark and myself would just like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best wedding ceremony we could have wished for.
You managed to capture everything that we felt important and relay that in words for everyone to enjoy. It was the perfect mix of humour and love, just what we wanted, and so typically “us”.
Many of our guests have commented that it was the most enjoyable and relaxed ceremony they’ve ever been to. There was lots of tears and laughter for everyone involved.
From what Mark tells me, you organised people, places, seating, even sweeping on our wedding day until everything was spot-on – it’s these special touches and the extra mile you’re willing to go that make you an exemplary celebrant.
Thank you also for all your help in the months before the wedding. You made everything so simple and stress free which, trust me, is just what a bride needs in the lead up to the big day!
I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone – but would have to warn them – to get in and book you early as celebrants as wonderful as you book up so fast!
All our love,
Mark and Kristy Akrigg
– KIM & ANDRE
We wanted to say thanks again for the amazing job you did with our ceremony, it was everything we wanted it to be and more!
Our families were so happy with how it went – especially our Mum’s – and our friends and other guests were also very touched by the ceremony.
It’s such a shame that you are moving out of Sydney as we would certainly be recommending you to all our friends and families for their weddings if we could!
Best of luck with your move to the Gold Coast, and thank you again for being such an amazing part of our wedding day.
Kim & Andre
– KRISTY AND ADAM
We would both like to thank you for helping make our wonderful day such a great memory.
You were so professional and well received by all the guests.
We thought you would appreciate this photo as a token of our thanks and gratitude.
You are truly good at what you do and that made the world of difference on our special day.
Thank you once again, Kristy and Adam
– PAULA & DAVE MCQUILLAN
Just a little note to say a very big thank you for everything you did in making our wedding ceremony overwhelmingly beautiful and our wedding day absolutely perfect.
I knew from the moment you pulled out your lovely folder at our first meeting we were in very capable hands and that you were completely committed to making our wedding day and our wedding ceremony a wonderful memory for us both to treasure for our lifetime together.
Thank you so much for your advice, for your meticulous attention to detail, and especially for your rescue when our venue fell through at the last minute. All our family commented on how gorgeous and truly moving the ceremony was. You made it unique and all about us and our story, while still being relaxed, light-hearted and romantic.
There is a very good reason you are so sought after as a marriage celebrant, a very good reason that all your reviews are so brilliant… it’s because you are without question the very best at what you do…exceptional in fact. You are clearly dedicated to and passionate about your work, and it was very reassuring to have your wealth of experience to lean on, as well as your warmth and thoughtfulness in making our wedding day impeccably magical.
It has been an absolute delight working with a true professional. Once again, our most humble and gracious thanks, and our warmest and fondest regards,
Paula and Dave McQuillan
– ALISON & THEO
To be completely honest having Ann as our celebrant was by far the best decision we made with our wedding.
After meeting Ann for the first time, my Husband and I could not stop talking about how great we thought she was after spending just a couple of hours with her.
Ann went above and beyond to ensure the ceremony was the best it could be. She gave us so many pointers and was so thorough, which really put as at ease.
Since the wedding we have received so many compliments about Ann and how beautiful the ceremony was. Her use of humour throughout the ceremony made it personal, unique and simply a lot of fun. Never at any point was the humour tasteless or inappropriate. It fitted perfectly and still maintained elegance and grace.
Ann has a great deal of experience and I would recommend her to anyone requiring a Celebrant that they would be beyond pleased with. Thank you Ann and Steve for making our Ceremony one that our guests and we will never forget.
Alison & Theo
– ELAINE & JASON LEE
Ann had been recommended to us. We arranged the first appointment with her and were in awe of her friendliness, professionalism, organisational skills and efficiency.
Being Vice President of Australian Marriage Celebrants Inc., and a trainer of celebrants – this was clearly evident at our meetings.
On the first appointment, Ann took us through the order of the ceremony, and suggestions on how to personalise the content. She also provided us with so many additional tips from the wedding dress to the shoes!
As we’re of Chinese heritage, we wanted to include the tea ceremony on the day (without having the whole morning spent on visiting our parents, along with the traditional games and then the Tea Ceremony). It was Ann that suggested we include the tea ceremony for the parents within our actual ceremony. She also included another special little ceremony on the day – only Ann offers this specialised service, and you’ll have to book with her to find out what it is! 🙂
The ceremony was an intimate affair, and so many guests commented on how light-hearted and fun it was – it was definitely not boring!
If we were to renew our vows, we would definitely book with Ann. Although we’ve only known Ann for six months, it seems that we’ve known her for a very long time due to her friendly persona. In our eyes, marriage occurs once, and is a celebration. We cannot recommend anyone else, and we’re very glad that we had Ann as our celebrant for our special day.
Ann – thank you for being there for us on our special day. You truly are an expert in the field, and we hope to stay in touch!!!
Elaine & Jason Lee
– AMY FURNER & CODY HAMBLETON
Cody and I would personally like to thank you for your professional services and very impressive contribution to our day. The ceremony was SO! SO! SO! AWESOME and we had so many comments about it and about how great you and your husband were.
We had such an amazing time and we owe a big part of it to you!
I can’t say a bad word, it was a “Dream come True”, the personalisation was very special 🙂
Once again thank you very much!
Amy Furner & Cody Hambleton (AKA – Mr & Mrs Hambleton)
– KATIE AND ASH MCDONALD
Thank you so much for providing such a beautifully written ceremony for Ash and I on the 6th July 2013.
Thanks to your vast experience we were able to be officially married on our wedding day after you put our minds at ease and helped us when we found out just 3 weeks before our special day that we needed a Shortening of Time from the courts in order for the wedding to proceed.
We were so scared and upset that we might have to cancel our wedding day but your experience and guidance got us through, and it was granted by the court.
Our guests still comment on what a fun and enjoyable ceremony it was and it was mostly because of your great ideas and fun character. The idea of simply giving thanks to both of our mothers was just beautiful and made it so much more special for all of us.
We would also like to thank you for all your little extra tips and guidance you gave us to ensure everything went smoothly. We appreciate everything you have done and would gladly recommend you to anyone wanting a wedding day as perfect as ours.
Thanks a billion Ann!
Ash and Katie McDonald.
– KATRINA AND LUKE KENNEDY
Thanks again for doing such a wonderful job of our wedding ceremony. It was perfect!
Many of our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever heard; and wasn’t that timing of the ferry unbelievable! Such a lovely day. Thanks again for making it such a pleasure.

You are to thank for a magical ceremony; your professionalism and warmth was in perfect sync.
We thank you endlessly,

– DIAN HUYNH & DAVID NG
Picking Ann to be our celebrant was the best decision we made during the whole planning process! My husband and I were totally clueless being some the first in our group of friends to get married but we felt so at ease after we had our first meeting with Ann Dally. In our first conversation you can tell she has so much experience and true passion for what she does. And she actually cares that your day is perfect – which is something money can’t buy.
We wrote our ceremony so quickly and easily with her manual and guidance, and her list of suppliers is fantastic! Our ceremony went without a hitch because of her experience and subtle trouble shooting skills.
Thanks Ann for making our day magical. You are truly the fairy godmother of weddings!
– BOB & JENNY DICK (PARENT’S OF THE BRIDE)
A huge thank you for giving our daughter, Kimberly and her husband, Nathan the most wonderful wedding ceremony.
From our first meeting at a wedding expo you assured us you would involve everyone at the wedding and make it a fun experience, you certainly did that; everyone laughed at times and cried at times…. it was perfect.
You gave such personal attention and effort to personalise our wedding which meant everything was relaxed, happy and natural.
You assisted our daughter and her husband every step of the way; even helping overcome the nerves felt by the groom on the day!!!!
Your professionalism is a credit to you and was appreciated by all our guests as we had many heartfelt comments about it being one of the best weddings they had attended.
We will treasure the wedding memories you created for our family for a lifetime.
– JACQUI AND GLENN BELL
Glenn and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for being our marriage celebrant. We could not have imagined a more perfect wedding ceremony, and it was all thanks to you.
You were the first celebrant we met with and the last – straight away we could tell you were our kind of celebrant; professional, warm and fun! We wanted someone to marry us that 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.
So many guests commented on how “us” the ceremony was and what a refreshing change it was to attend a wedding that was reflective of the couple being married and not just hearing a tried and tired ceremony being rolled out once again. So thank you Ann, you really made our day.
It was also wonderfully reassuring when meeting with other wedding suppliers and they asked who our celebrant was and we replied ‘Ann Dally’ that all had such high praise to sing of you and your wonderful ceremonies.
It is clear you are a true professional who obviously not only impresses those who choose you as a celebrant, but you are also someone who is highly regarded by your industry peers. Ann, we would not hesitate for a second to recommend you to anyone wanting only the best celebrant.
Please also pass on our thanks to your husband Steve for being the silent but supportive helper on the day, ensuring all our music was played and timed perfectly – you both really went above and beyond our expectations of a celebrant.
Thank you once again,
All our Love Jacqui and Glenn Bell
– KATHLEEN & CHRIS
Hi Ann (and Steve),
Our Surprise Wedding!
We just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ for your highly professional yet very personal wedding ceremony. We absolutely loved it and so did all of our guests. A significant number of the guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. So take a bow!
Your wonderful ability to weave together a blend of emotion, humour and style created a winning formula that not only made the day unforgettable for us, but touched so many of the guests in a way we could have only dreamed of. For us, the day will be associated with the wonderful memories of our ‘Surprise Wedding’ for the rest of our lives.
The ceremony was video taped and we’ve enjoyed viewing it a number of times to relive the emotion of the moment. We’re positive that our families are going to love it. Of the photos we’ve received so far, this is one of our favourites. We hope you enjoy it too.
Thanks again and hope you continue to “weave your magic at weddings” for a long time to come.
Love Kathleen and Chris X
– LAUREN & BEN THOMPSON
Thank-you so much for marrying Ben and I on the 13th August. Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was and they all appreciated the personalisation and good humour.
Ben and I were also very, very happy and want to let you know how grateful we are that we chose you to be our celebrant. We knew from the first meeting that you were exactly the lovely type of person that we wanted to marry us and we appreciate all of your help and advice with writing our ceremony, it was exactly the romantic wedding that we had hoped for.
On the day you were a calming presence and put us all at ease and made sure everything went well. It was great of you to help work out the confusion with the button holes and also to put them on the boys securely! Your knowledge of photo opportunities and the way you moved to the side during key moments meant our photographer was able to get some amazing photos! Thank-you also for sharing your recommended suppliers list, you saved us lots of money and helped us find high quality makeup and hair artists and limo drivers. You looked lovely on the day and even dressed so as not to clash with our colour scheme- you really do think of everything!
We’d be willing to vouch for your services anytime!! Once again thank-you so much, you did a wonderful job and helped make our wedding very, very special!
Lauren & Ben
– KATHERINE & STAFFORD
Thank you for being our fabulous wedding celebrant. Without you, the day certainly would not have been as spectacular as it was.
The service you provided from our initial meeting to the end of the ceremony was not only professional and thorough but humorous as well. The guests are still talking about it and my “reality TV obsession”!
We cannot thank you enough for the day running as smoothly as it did. Given the small world we live in our paths will surely cross again.
We wish you all the best for 2012!
All our love
Katherine and Stafford
– FRANCES AND JALEN
We would like to thank you for your fantastic service.
You were well prepared from the first time we spoke over the phone and each time we met. This made everything easier and reassuring given that we were organising things from overseas.
Your wedding manual was also fantastic for us as we wanted something simple, but not conventional and didn’t know where to start.
So many guests complimented you on how special the whole ceremony was, especially the unique vows and humour. Thank you again for helping us and make the wedding such a success!
Frances and Jalen,
– MEECH & CLINTON
We decided to have a wedding with a difference – a surprise wedding disguised as a family picnic, organised with only 6 weeks notice from interstate. After speaking to several celebrants on the phone we knew Ann was the right person for us – she understood straight away the kind of people we are and what we wanted, and got right into the spirit of things. Our ceremony was really personal with just the right balance of solemnity (a little) and laughter (a lot) – it definitely hit the right tone for us.
On the day, Ann wasn’t fazed at all by the fact that we hadn’t worked out any of the nitty gritty details until an hour and a half before the guests arrived on the island and the whole thing was a bit impromptu.
Steve, her husband, was a great help as well, particularly when a magpie decided to help himself to our picnic lunch halfway through the ceremony! Ann and Steve both fitted in so well with our intimate gathering, we are so grateful they were part of our big day and we will never forget their kindness.
In the end, our surprise wedding truly was a surprise for everyone and the day turned out better than we expected. So much of that was due to Ann’s enthusiasm, warmth and good humour – it definitely was a day to remember! Thank you Ann and Steve from the bottom of our hearts – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Meech & Clinton, Queensland – September 2011
– RENEE AND NATHAN WAKELING
I’m writing to you as the MOB (Mother of the Bride) to say a heartfelt thank you for making my daughter Renee’s wedding a resounding success.
I know Renee has written to you, but I wanted to add my congratulations. We were so lucky to have you as our celebrant. It was obvious how much you enjoy doing what you do, your heart and soul seemed to go into the day, from pinning on the groom’s button hole, and his attendants’ buttonholes, to ensuring that the entire bridal party had rehearsed and knew exactly what to do, without any hiccups.
Renee and Nathan utilised all the providers on your list of recommended wedding suppliers, as you said, gathered from the many the ceremonies you have conducted; the hairdresser, make up artist, florist, car service, photographer and video, string trio musicians, and they were so happy with all the results. It also saved such a lot of stress trying to find the right people, phoning around etc., and the quotes we received were competitive, and the results outstanding, and as the MOB and Chief Financier, I appreciated the costs without having to sacrifice the quality we were after!
As you know, Renee and Nathan wanted a fairly traditional service. You, however, with their blessing, injected some little pieces of humour regarding their courtship and beautiful readings into the ceremony, which broke the ice with the guests and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Your suggestions regarding readings etc, were invaluable.
Without exception, all the guests told me that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and I know that you were responsible for the majority of the lovely ambience on the day. The venue was lovely, (suggested by you), the food and service were great, but your ceremony set the whole tone and started everyone enjoying themselves.
Looking at the video of the wedding in the chapel, I noticed all the guests were smiling and riding along on the wave of this lovely day. I have heard some were even disappointed when the service ended! It seemed to join all the guests together in the spirit of love.
Andrew, the best man, is getting married in Hong Kong and has asked Renee if he could have a copy of their ceremony. Praise indeed! Once again, thank you so much for your professionalism, attention to detail, cheerfulness, wisdom, expertise, helpful suggestions, and lovely smiling face and, the most important thing of all, for making Renee and Nathan’s special day so unforgettable.
– JANE & CHARLES COLEIRO
Charles and I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful wedding ceremony that you put together for us on for our very special day. It was a dream come true – everything was perfect.
After feeling so nervous, when I stood next to you at the chapel altar all my nerves melted away as you exuded so much calmness.
The feed back from our guests has been coming in ever since our wedding day and everyone loved what you put together for us and said they had never been to such a special personalised wedding which was so unique – so thank you for all your special touches and warmness that was felt by everyone in our gorgeous chapel on our day.
We are more than happy to spread the word about you out there in “wedding planning land”. Vicki recommending you has far exceeded our expectations as to your professionalism and articulation to every part and detail of our wedding from our first meeting you and all the finer details that you passed on to us both until the end of our wedding.
Jane & Charles Coleiro
– COLLEEN AND MARK DEANE
Our Dearest Ann,
When two people decide to get married, the search for our life partner may be over, but the search to find just the right person to marry us begins.
Not only that, but you need to find someone who is willing to help you make your day the most special and memorable day of your life.
Mark and I had met a few celebrants at various Bridal Expos, and while they seemed nice enough, they did not have the energy, passion or the sense of humour that we were looking for.
And then we found you!
I knew within minutes of our initial phone conversation, that you were the celebrant we were looking for and, just had to have! From the outset, your warmth, caring and sense of humour were so obvious, that I knew you would suit us perfectly.
When Mark and I met you for the first time, it was so evident that you genuinely love what you do, we knew that our ceremony was going to be even more special than we had hoped it could be.
You are always so calm and relaxed and possess such a wonderful sense of fun – our meetings with you and also the lead up to our wedding, was an absolute breeze. Nothing we asked of you was a problem. Any request was always met with “Absolutely, we can do that” which is exactly what a bride and groom want to hear.
We had so much fun at our rehearsal that it was hard to imagine how much more fun it would be on our wedding day.
But what an incredible ceremony we had. (I think it shows in our photos). It was filled with love and laughter and was delivered so beautifully by you, I cannot imagine a better ceremony being had by anyone, ever!
Our ceremony could not have been more perfect. Once again, your grace, your warmth, your relaxed attitude and your genuine love of what you do, contributed so greatly to making our special day, an absolute “Fairytale” wedding.
Every single one of our guest told us how wonderful you were, how much fun you were and what a lovely person you are.
In all the weddings that I have been to, I have never ever, heard anyone mention the celebrant, let alone pay so many compliments to them. I must confess Ann, that I felt so very clever to have found you!
And so to your husband Steve, a very BIG thank you for setting up, organising and looking after all our music.
And to you our dearest Ann, a big thank you for pointing us to some of your fantastic “preferred” suppliers: An amazing group of such caring and truly professional people, all with such incredible dedication.
Ann, I really don’t know what else to say, because it doesn’t really matter how much I say, it really can never be enough. I guess the only thing left that I can say is:
To the warmest, happiest and most incredible Celebrant in the Universe, a very sincere and heartfelt thank you.
With much love and the best memories ever
Colleen and Mark Deane
– KAREN & MATT SHEATHER
We thought our first anniversary would be good time to get in touch again! Aren’t we terrible for leaving it so long?
We wanted to let you know how wonderful our wedding day was, it has been one the best days for both of us, still remembering quite often how it would be so nice just to have that day again, and it was because you helped make it special for us with your advice, your experience and little tips along the way (and who can forget the processional song…!!) We loved all of it.
So our first anniversary is 24th September 2011 and we are finally going on a short honeymoon taking our beautiful little boy with us, yes, we had Kobi on 15th January this year. He is just the best thing in the world, so cute and cheeky.
Thanks again Ann, and sorry it took so long to hear from us.
Karen, Matt & Kobi Sheather
– SANG YOUNG PARK AND INAE OH
Inae and I wanted to say “thank you so much” for being our celebrant and also being our warm-hearted friend.
Thinking back to the time when we were trying to find our celebrant, we were a bit nervous meeting with you. However after a few minutes, I personally thought that you were the right person who was already chosen by God for us. You made us so comfortable and we both thought “She is the most professional celebrant and also a very friendly person”.
I think having the right celebrant is the most important part of the wedding day.
We had you as our celebrant, and we could not be any happier than that. You worked so hard for us from the beginning until the wedding day (and even after the wedding) as a celebrant and also as a friend.
If we could describe you in a few words, we would say you were “fantastic, wonderful, professional and just “simply the best” as a celebrant”.
I will be honest with you, I am not a person who gives exaggerated compliments just to make other people feel good. But I really must say you were a fantastic celebrant and we cannot describe with any words how happy we were.
When we encountered some problems during the preparation for the wedding, you found all the solutions for us. Every time you carefully listened to our stories and you always lent your hand, even to little things.
Our wedding was beautiful and Inae and I will appreciate you for our lifetime. You made the wedding perfect and it was possible because we had you. And we also thank our God who let us have you, as our celebrant.
Sang young Park & Inae Oh
– RAYMOND & SARAH
Thank you so much for your assistance throughout our entire wedding planning process and especially on the day!
You professionalism and humour really made the day a special moment in our lives that we will forever remember, all thanks to you!
I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a marriage celebrant, in Sydney or anywhere in Australia.
I honestly believe you are the “No.1 wedding celebrant in Australia” and will promote that to everyone getting married.
Thank you deeply once again Ann, for everything.
Please say a big thank you to Steve for me as well, he is indeed a very lucky man to have you!
Kindest Regards Raymond & Sarah
– AJAY AND ARADHNA MAIRA (PARENTS OF THE BRIDE)
We really appreciated the wonderful wedding ceremony you conducted for Devika and Jehan on 31 July 2010. Your wonderful mix of sincerity, solemnity and humour was par excellence.
While I could write a small book on the memorable occasion you made for all of us, I would probably use the word ‘perfect’ for you and your team (husband!).
A friend of mine said something which I considered very apt. He said “I thought we would be going to a holy place for the wedding. Later I realised that holiness was brought to the place!”
For a person whom we now would recommend to all of our loved ones for their special day, please feel most free to use our humble words in your website.
Yours very sincerely
Ajay and Aradhna Maira (parents of the bride)
– CORINNA & DARREN HUSKINSON
We are finally back from our honeymoon in Maui, Hawaii, which Darren planned himself and kept it a surprise until we got to the airport, and we are getting used to life without a wedding to plan!
Darren & I really want to say a huge, very sincere THANK YOU to you for making our wedding day so special and memorable with such a beautiful ceremony!!!! We had such an amazing day!
It is important to us that you know we were so pleased with everything. From the very first conversation I had with you on the phone I knew instinctively that you were going to be the celebrant for us.
You put me straight at ease about the whole thing and I had faith that with you there on the day performing our ceremony it was going to be an extremely important part of the day that I would not have to worry about.
The fact that we made the right choice was confirmed when we met you and you started guiding us through the process that was going to be our wedding day.
Your manual was a huge help for us to put our ceremony together. We were quite daunted about it all and had no idea where to start, but by having so much choice the whole thing was so personalised and so “us”.
The end result was one of the most memorable ceremonies that our guests have ever attended, and a lifelong beautiful memory for us!
We could not have asked for a more perfect day, the rain held off and it was a dream come true, from my dress to the horse & carriage to the candle lighting and the doves, it was just everything we had envisaged.
Every single guest that we speak to has commented on what a lovely ceremony it was, and what a great time they had at our wedding, and a huge part of that credit is because of you and the way you performed our ceremony. Some have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I don’t even remember if I got to say thank you on the day – a lot of it was a blur. Rev. Gary did his bits really nicely, I think it all worked out and us doing communion with Gary was a lovely ending to his part of the ceremony.
We will definitely recommend you to anyone we ever come across that needs a celebrant – no hesitation!

Thank you so much for being our celebrant on our special day, 9th March 2008.
The service you gave us was beyond all expectations; from the very first contact with you we both felt comfortable and were so grateful that we’d found you!
The support you gave both of us in the lead up and on the day, as well as the planning, was very much appreciated.
Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and more than we could have imagined. Every little detail was covered from how we should hold each others hands, what colour you should wear, right through to placement of our decorations. You took a lot of the stress out of the planning.
You also took such a lot of hassle away from the Vow writing with your wedding manual – whilst still keeping it very personalised and meaningful.
We were both quite nervous with our vows but you supported us through it all the way, even adding some humour to the ceremony!
Most of our guests commented to us on your excellence as a celebrant. The way in which you presented the ceremony really allowed everyone to warm to you and it only added to the sincerity of the words being delivered by you.
It is hard for us to put everything into words – your support, guidance and the deliverance of our ceremony – it meant so much to both of us.
We could not have asked for anything more and we will always remember you.
Thank you for helping to make our day so memorable! We will recommend you to everyone we know who is getting married in the coming years!
Everyone that is getting married needs to consider you as their celebrant!!!
Hopefully we will see you at another wedding in the future.

Iman and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping make our wedding day the most perfect day of our lives.
Your professional yet friendly approach made us feel comfortable in the knowledge that our wedding ceremony was going to be something we would hold close to our hearts forever.
Your calming nature helped us iron out our nerves and made us feel reassured that everything would be fine on the day, and it was, it was perfect!
The sun was shining, the birds were whistling, the flowers were in full bloom and to complete the setting your presentation of our wedding ceremony was nothing short of enchanting, something we will always remember.
You made us feel like we were the only people in the world at that moment, committing to each other in the bond of marriage for the rest of our lives, it was magic!
Thank you Ann, for all your help in the preparation of our wedding, and for your beautiful personality which shone through from the first time we met.

Marriage is a big decision and a wedding can become very stressful but from the first moment we met Ann at an open night we seemed to hit it off. She is very friendly and made us feel very important and yet relaxed.
During our first meeting with her at her home she gave us many fantastic ideas from her wedding manual which included vows and different ceremony ideas. Ann also gave us many other terrific tips that we wouldn’t normally have thought of.
Ann was so informative. She made the whole experience a stress-free, happy event for us.
Our wedding ceremony was enjoyed by everyone. Ann included special little touches for our wedding ceremony as well as confirmed what she was wearing to fit in with our colour scheme.
We all had tears, we all laughed, and all our guests commented that our wedding was the best they had ever been to.
Most importantly, the wedding was a very memorable experience for us.
Ann did a fantastic job from start to finish and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant – we have already recommended her to others.
Thanks Ann for making our ceremony one that people will talk about for years to come!

Dale and I have just returned from our honeymoon in Japan.
You helped make our wedding day everything we had hoped for – it was fun, light hearted and summarised our love story. Everyone had a good laugh!
Most of all, the vows were meaningful. The feedback from our parents and guests was great – the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We want to say how impressed we were with our experience with you. You gave us a lot of good pointers on the vows, hair and make-up and you even helped the groomsmen with their buttonholes on the wedding day!
We will be recommending you to any of our friends getting married!
Ann, thanks again for a superb celebration! And thank your husband Steve too for helping make our wedding such a memorable day!
Kind regards, Irene and Dale

We are back home in Canada and trying to beat off the jetlag!
Thank you so much for a marvellous job on our “Surprise” wedding on Dec. 30th. We are so happy with how the evening went – smooth, natural, happy and full of love. The majority of people had no clue, including Tim’s parents, and we are so pleased that we pulled it off!
So many people have called or written to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and you have received glowing reviews! Your ease and humour set the tone for a great event, and we both appreciate your professionalism and organisation so much – dealing with “intercontinental secret wedding plans” is no easy task!
Our best wishes for a wonderful 2012 to you.

Ann was unbelievable. She went above and beyond to make our day so very special. Our service was memorable due to her constant help, support and advice.
Ann made sure our ceremony reflected who we were both as individuals and as a couple. It was serious, fun, enjoyable and definitely unforgettable.
She was always a phone call away and helped us in every way possible. We would recommend Ann to anyone looking for a celebrant for their special day as you will definitely not be disappointed.
We would both like to thank you again for everything and look forward to sending you some photos.

Thank you very much for being our celebrant this year on our wedding day.
It’s true when they say that a celebrant usually makes or breaks the ceremony, and you definitely made ours fantastic and memorable.
You are such a happy and bubbly character, and you made the whole ceremony such a fun experience. I am so grateful for the recommendation from my work colleague! From the very first day we met you, we knew we wanted you as our celebrant – you are so friendly and so organised and you definitely made us feel very comfortable.
There were never any ‘silly questions’, and you explained everything so clearly so we wouldn’t miss anything or muck up any important parts of the ceremony. You even gave us great wedding day tips which I will definitely pass on to my bride and groom friends! We highly recommend you to all family and friends that will soon to be married. Many thanks once again!
– FIONA AND BEN
Ann did an AMAZING job as our celebrant. She is knowledgeable and you have a strong sense of being in very good hands. She helped us create a personal, funny, and touching ceremony which we and our guests loved. She makes sure that the ceremony runs perfectly.

Having Ann as our celebrant we had the most amazing intimate ceremony, she added special touches to the ceremony which was really nice.

We could not have dreamed of a better celebrant, every thing went so smooth on the day, Ann helped out with some very helpful tips all the way from when we first met her to the day, she even set up some photo shots for the photographer 🙂 everyone at our wedding commented on how it was the best ceremony they have ever been to.

We attended a friend’s wedding where Ann was the celebrant and after seeing her ceremony we got her card and made an appointment. Ann is extremely professional and after meeting with her you will definitely want to book her. She provides an excellent service and adds a touch of humour to the ceremony. Not to mention having done so many she has all the hints and tips a bride needs. You can’t go wrong if you choose Ann Dally.

– LAUREN AND BEN THOMPSON
Thank-you so much for marrying Ben and I on the 13th August 2011. Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was and they all appreciated the personalisation and good humour.
Ben and I were also very, very happy and want to let you know how grateful we are that we chose you to be our celebrant.
We knew from the first meeting that you were exactly the lovely type of person that we wanted to marry us and we appreciated all of your help and advice with writing our ceremony, it was exactly the romantic wedding that we had hoped for.
On the day you were a calming presence and put us all at ease and made sure everything went well. It was great of you to help work out the confusion with the “button holes” and also to put them on the boys securely!
Your knowledge of photo opportunities and the way you moved to the side during key moments meant our photographer was able to get some amazing photos!
Thank-you also for sharing your recommended suppliers list, you saved us lots of money and helped us find a high quality makeup artists, hair stylist and limo drivers.
You looked lovely on the day and even dressed so as not to clash with our colour scheme.
You really do think of everything!
Once again thank-you so much, you did a wonderful job and helped make our wedding very, very special!

Ann was the perfect choice for our celebrant. We had a wonderfuly day with Ann looking after us – things could not have gone more smoothly.
Ann put so much effort into the preparation for the day, making sure that my husband and I were comfortable with the proceedings we had planned together.
Her humour really lit up the day and made everybody feel very comfortable and relaxed. Her suggestions regarding arrangements for the day were very helpful, and possibly saved us from some awkward situations.
We really appreciate everything she has done! It is certainly a lifelong beautiful memory for us!!!

– KATHRYN AND BEAU
We were so lucky to have come across Ann who was the celebrant at a friends wedding.
We booked her on the spot and it was the best decision we ever made as she made the whole process so easy and stress free.
Upon our initial meeting she talked us through the process and even provided advice on many different areas of our wedding, which really helped us prioritise and ensure we didn’t miss those special little touches.
Her wedding manual and ceremony checklist was invaluable. The ceremony conducted for my husband and I was so special. Ann made the day exactly what we wanted it to be: intimate and romantic, yet laid back with a twist of humour.
We were so please with how smoothly the ceremony ran. As part of her service Ann’s husband manages the music at no extra charge, which includes pre-ceremony, processional, signing of the certificate and recessional which made things even easier for us.
We are looking forward to seeing Ann again soon – some of our wedding guests who are getting married next year, have also booked her. If you want a professional, beautiful, organised stress-free ceremony then book Ann now!
– AMY & JAY TAYLOR
This is a very sincere, THANKYOU!!! from the depths of our hearts, for the beautiful wedding ceremony you facilitated as celebrant for our son Jay and Amy (who feels like a daughter and sister to our other daughter and bridesmaid Skye).
We all felt we were in good hands by the way you held the flow of each part of the service, with such warmth, clarity, grace and lightness yet a gentle and clear solemnity. The words chosen were so beautiful and we were extremely touched by the way you brought in Kobie, our grandson, and spoke to him of his parents continuing love.
The experience will live on in our memories as a blessing for the commitment Jay and Amy have made together as a married couple and with their son, as a family.
Many Thanks (we will certainly be recommending your services to others!)

Guy and I were so blessed to find you – on the internet of all places!!!!! Crazy in love Canadians living in Dubai, UAE and wanting a destination wedding ceremony in Sydney, Australia……… well obviously God was looking out for us when we found you!
We were a little nervous about choosing a celebrant over the net, but as we got to know you over emails, we learned to love you, and your sense of humor and professionalism. Not to mention your calming nature days before the wedding when I had a small meltdown!!!
We deeply thank you for ALL the “extras” you looked after for us in arranging our photographer, hairdresser, flowers and tux rental and the location for the ceremony – we wouldn’t have had a clue where to start with all this and all of the Service Providers were wonderful and your recommendation of the restaurant to have our wedding celebration dinner at, was perfect.
We would especially like to thank you and Steve for taking us on a tour of Sydney beaches the day before the wedding; we appreciated your time, truly enjoyed your company, and really connected with the both of you. We are both looking forward to seeing you two in Dubai and continuing our friendship going forward.
The wedding day could not have been more perfect, the weather, the scenery, the witnesses – we were so excited to see Steve show up as one of our witnesses!!!
In addition, Ann, you set the tone with your words so beautifully written and spoken. Our vows were perfect and so special to us as if we had written them ourselves………………. and as you will remember touched us deeply…………….. OK so it was me doing all the crying but Guy felt they were perfect as well.
Ann you are truly OUTSTANDING at what you do – what more can we say accept sincerely thank you from the bottom of our “blissfully happy married hearts” for your service.
Bug hugs and smooches too

Billy and I sat down together for hours trying to write a testimonial that could really portray what a wonderful ceremony you created for us.
After thinking about it for a while, we thought we won’t write you just another testimonial. This is why we came up with this video we made especially for you to say thank you – sometimes there are special occasions that no words can describe. This is one of them!
We thank you once again for the special memories you have created for us, our families and friends. We will treasure these moments for the rest of our lives.
Thank you for such a wonderful, memorable day!
Maisie and Billy
– SANDRA AND DAVID HOLGATE
Thank you so much for making our wedding day as fun filled and special as it turned out.
We have had nothing but positive comments from all in attendance as to how wonderful it was. The highlight for me (apart from getting married) was the look on Gillian’s face when she made our other “special announcement”. I hope someone has captured it on film.
We’re sorry that we did not get to say goodbye to you and thank you for all of your input. Without you, I am confident in saying that we would not have enjoyed the evening as we did.
The only thing that you could not do for us was get rid of those bloody flies! Oh well, there had to be a glich somewhere along the way!
Thanks again Ann – we will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.
Sandra and David Holgate

To our Dearest and Lovely Ann,
We just wanted to say THANK YOU Sooooooo Soooooo Soooooo much for being a huge part of our special day and making it so “special”… the ceremony was so beautiful and more than we had ever imagined……
You are such an amazing and loving person and your warmth made such an impact on our wedding day……
Each time I looked at you while you were reading the ceremony I just wanted to cry!!!
The entire process has been really beautiful and you have left an ever-lasting impact on both our lives! You were the first and only celebrant that we sought and we always knew that we’d made the perfect choice as soon as we stepped inside your front door…
We can’t thank you enough or stress enough how amazing and touched we are to have you as our celebrant on our special day… Thank You!!!!
Love you lots!
Yummii and Sooty
