Services

Wedding Ceremonies

It is your special day.

There are several things required by law to be included in a Wedding Ceremony. As your celebrant, I must state that I am legally able to marry you. I will ensure that your vows are carried out properly, declare that you are husband and wife and finalise all paperwork.

All other elements are entirely up to you. You may like to include a poem/ reading, special rituals; however short or long you would like your ceremony to be.

I can provide or help assist with designing a beautiful and personal ceremony.

Naming Ceremonies

Naming ceremonies are a special way of welcoming your child into your family and the community. This ceremony is also a great idea when adopting, or welcoming stepchildren into the family. The ceremony can be a spiritual occasion, but does not need to have religious content.

Renewal of Vows

Renewal of Vows ceremonies are often associated with Wedding Anniversaries, but are often useful for couples whom have married overseas to celebrate with family and friends. I can provide or help assist with designing the perfect ceremony so you can celebrate your renewed or on going commitment to each other in the presence of family and friends.

Commitment Ceremonies

As with the service I provide for other ceremonies, I can provide or assist with writing a special ceremony for you and your partner so you can declare your commitment to each other, in the presence of your family and friends. Whilst this ceremony does not have legal status in Australia, it is important for you and your partner, and will be treated with seriousness, respect and sensitivity. Funerals

A personally written funeral service properly prepared, with care and sensitivity, helps people live through their feelings, recognise the reality of death and assist grieving people to work toward living normally without that person. You can be assured that I will put time into the preparation so I will deliver a well-prepared and meaningful service.

Master of Ceremonies

I am competent in Master of Ceremonies. (MC)
For your special occasion, I would be happy to discuss your requirements, to assist in making your event one to remember.

Hi Debbie, Thank you so very much for being our celebrant. I am so thankful that Jodie recommended you to us. On our first meeting I instantly felt comfortable with you. You truly did an amazing job and on the day made the ceremony run smoothly. I’m glad you were there to try and settle Ryan!!! Thank you again, and we will be passing on our recommendations to friends that are getting married.

Hello Debbie, We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude for being involved in our wedding ceremony. The day we met you we knew you would be our perfect match! Your wise words of guidance and reassuring advice throughout the process helped make our ceremony so special and personal. Our guests loved being involved on the day, and I had numerous comments (through joyful tears) about how moved they were by the emotion that was conveyed through our ceremony. Thank you so much for your support, patience and overall positive energy.
Warmest Regards Larissa and Hayden Chandler

My partner and I were married by Debbi Scott- Dusk to Dawn Celebrant on the 06/09/2014. I would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone looking for a celebrant. Debbie always kept in contact with us, was more than happy to answer any questions we had, and made herself available for as many appointments as we needed. She made us feel at ease from the beginning, and was so helpful with all the paperwork we had no idea about. She helped us create a ceremony that truly reflected who we were as a couple.. Debbie conducted a wonderful ceremony on the day; she was professional, warm, and personable, which helped to calm our racing nerves. I can’t recommend Debbie enough to anyone looking for a celebrant, she truly added to our perfect day.

Hi Deb, Luke and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for our beautiful wedding ceremony. The entire thing was perfect and you really summed up our love for each other perfectly in our ceremony. It was beautiful and we really couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Thank you

Hi Deb, a sincere thank you for being our celebrant. Our ceremony was just what we wanted relaxed and friendly with lots of joy and laughter. Thank you for guiding us through the entire process and making it as easy and stress free as possible. You definitely helped to make our special day wonderful and we cannot thank you enough.

Hello Debbie, We would like to thank you for guiding us through our wedding ceremony as our celebrant. You certainly made a lot of the steps easier for us, including lodging our intent to marry paperwork, as well as our application for our marriage certificate. You personalised our wedding ceremony for us, and it fitted us both perfectly. I have had many of our guests tell me that they were impressed by the ceremony, and that you had done a fantastic job, especially with the way we were standing on the day, everyone liked that we were facing them and not away from them. We would certainly recommend you to any friends or family that are to be married. You are a fantastic celebrant.
Thank you again Ian and Amy

We were mentioned Debbie’s business Dusk to Dawn Celebrant when asking a close friend about a celebrant to use on our special day. It was a great reference as Debbie was fantastic. Debbie offers a variety of packages to suit your individual needs on the day; from smaller, shorter ceremonies to longer personal ones with readings etc. Debbie made the whole process very simple. We met with her to discuss the paperwork that needed to be signed and our plan for the ceremony. She then sent us a questionnaire to fill in and took that information away to write the ceremony speech and our vows. We hardly had to alter the wording, she did a fabulous job! Debbie gave myself the bride an ‘everything a bride needs’ pack which had all the paperwork to use to change your name after your marriage. These little things just add to the service and thoughtfulness of Debbie. On the day, Debbie was punctual and dressed according to the style of wedding we were having. She spoke well; very clear and professional. She made us all feel very comfortable and conducted the ceremony exactly how we had imagined it would be.
I would highly recommend using Debbie as your celebrant for you special day, you won’t regret it!!
We could not write enough kind words to express our thanks Debbie you were great!!!!!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to officiate at Paxton’s Naming Ceremony. The whole family was moved by the event and commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We really appreciated all your help with everything.

We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends and family who wish to have a similar ceremony.

When we were organising our daughter’s Naming Day, we weren’t quite sure what we wanted exactly. Then a friend told me about Debbie as she had officiated at their wedding ceremony, I contacted Debbie and form the first time we met her we knew we were in good hands. Debbie was so friendly to deal with and so very helpful in every way. Debbie was very professional and full of good ideas. The ceremony was just magical. Many of our guests said that it was the most beautiful Naming Ceremony they had attended.

We thank you so much for all your time and hard work.

I had the pleasure of Debbie performing my son Jack’s Naming Day Ceremony. Debbie was wonderful and created a special ceremony for Jack which I will always remember forever. Debbie conducted the ceremony in a relaxed and happy, yet very professional manner.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Debbie for any ceremony.

Hi Debbie,

July 17th 2010 was a beautiful day! A celebration of our son’s 1st Birthday & his Naming Ceremony—it will long be remembered by us, our families & friends. Thank you so much for your professionalism, attention to detail & presentation. We especially loved your flexible yet heartfelt approach to the ceremony. It was an absolute pleasure meeting with you beforehand, discussing our wishes & with your expert guidance, formulating a ceremony specific to the dynamics & cultures that make up our family. In our opinion Xavier’s day was perfect! Respectful, sincere, inclusive of the mentors we chose for our son & very appropriately reflected the sentiments we wanted to convey. Thanks again Debbie, we have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending you as a celebrant!

I have given your details to a friend of mine who is considering renewing her vows with her partner soon.
