My partner & I were recently married, and we had Adrian as our celebrant. Adrian was fantastic. Adrian assisted us with the running on the ceremony, assisted our guests & overall ensured the day ran smoothly! We have recommend Adrian to all our friends and family soon to be getting married! 10/10 😊

We are so thankful that Adrian was our celebrant. He explained the whole process and was so organised - making it one less thing to worry about in the planning process. He was very accommodating to our requests and responded to all emails quickly. The ceremony wording was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Adrian was also amazing on the day - with the coordination so that the ceremony would run smoothly. Adrian is well spoken and so organised. Thank you so much for being a part of our big day!

Adrian was fantastic and we are so happy we hired him. Very prepared and organized whilst also being very relaxed and flexible which suited us perfectly. He has put a lot of work into templates and guidelines on his website which takes a lot of the work out for the couples getting married as far as the ceremony and vows and what not. He did our wedding and our handfasting. Very accommodating to our needs. Professional and friendly. Wasn't a problem for him that we emailed our personal vows last minute! Thanks very much for being a part of our special day Adrian.

Like you, we think that 100% is the pass mark for all those supporting the bride and groom on their day, and Adrian Downey 'passed' with flying colours. From our first communications with him to our last he took care of all the (many) details and made us feel completely at ease. On our Day he lead the way and helped everything click into place seamlessly. He is a friendly, warm person who considers his work much more than a job - his aim is to make people happy and remove any detail type stress - which he certainly did. He makes you think you are special because he really thinks that you are special. What more could you ask for? Cheers

I had the pleasure of working with Adrian Downey as a photographer for a wedding ceremony recently, and I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism and expertise. From the moment I arrived at the venue, Adrian made sure that everything ran smoothly and on time, and he was always available to answer any questions that the couple or I had.Adrian's ceremony was beautifully crafted and personalized to the couple's preferences, and he delivered it with warmth, humor, and sincerity. He has a great presence and speaking voice, and he really knows how to engage the audience and create a memorable experience for everyone involved.As a photographer, I appreciated how well Adrian coordinated with me to ensure that we captured all the important moments of the ceremony, while also being respectful of the couple's wishes and preferences. He was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented and experienced celebrant for their wedding or other special event. Thank you, Adrian, for making the day so special!

Adrian is awesome! He did our vowel renewal in Sydney since my family missed my first wedding due to covid. I didn’t really know what I was doing and he made it so easy with templates, instructions and guidance. He answered all my questions and had everything organized for us, which took off a lot of stress! Highly recommend Adrian if you are looking for a celebrant for any occasion!

Adrian was amazing - very helpful and understanding the whole way through. We had to reschedule several times due to COVID and he just ran with it and took care of the admin side (extending paperwork etc.) as a matter of course reducing stress levels all the way around - he is flexible, genial, easy going, laid back and generally a fantastic human; could not endorse him highly enough - you would be mad not to go with Adrian. Highly recommended - four thumbs WAY UP (my new husband was stoked with him too)!

Adrian helped us create our perfect day, to get married on the cliffs in Clovelly. He guided us through the whole process, clearly explaining everything every step of the way. It was a beautiful ceremony and lovely day for all.
