"Katya and Luke"
This testimonial was entered by Debra Keating Celebrant on 11 July 2014
I contacted Debra to be my celebrant for my wedding after reading the positive reviews. They all commented on her professionalism, compassion, organization, and her unique ability to make you feel comfortable. From the very first contact we had with her she was just outstanding and exceeded my husband and my expectations. The initial meeting involved going through some quite personal details on how we met, which would have made us feel very awkward. With Deb, we felt relaxed and were able to trust her with our most precious memories. Having moved the wedding forward by a year, I had begun to doubt my decision, but after this initial meeting, I was buoyed by her confidence and friendliness and became truly excited about becoming a bride. She wrote us a lovely ceremony, one that fitted our relaxed wedding day beautifully and had our guests laughing and relaxed with us. Due to weather conditions, she was able to foresee potential issues (such as wind ruining my hair) and alter the set-up of the altar accordingly. She was exceedingly patient with both of our stubborn families who don’t listen to instruction. The finest details were thought of. The legalities and paperwork were handled efficiently. There were no surprises, she had pre-warned us of everything that was to occur. There was only the joy of marrying my husband with the help of a truly wonderful celebrant.
Both myself and my husband can only sing Debra’s praises, and urge you to meet with her for your big day.
