Dave was excellent! He really captured the essence of our wedding, made us feel relaxed and comfortable, and just did an excellent job. I had many highly complementary things said about his style from our guests! They were very impressed. As we drove up the ceremony only then did I start to think about the ceremony itself. At that point I realised how confident I was that Dave would guide us through and I was completely right about that. He did it with good humour, charm and professionalism. We are very grateful!read more

My husband and I were married in October by Dave and we cannot recommend him more! We live in Albury/Wodonga and were nervous about being married up in Canberra and being dislocated from the organising. We found Dave online and he assured us that the distance was no issue! We facetimed, emailed and text regularly, ensuring that we knew all the information (legal and fun stuff) about our big day. On the actual day (our first face to face meeting!) all our guests commented on how amazing Dave was! Great timing, perfect banter and made everyone feel a part of our story! He truly was a standout of the day! Such exceptional service, so look no further for your big day! Thanks Dave!read more

I could not recommend Dave highly enough, I listened to what my partner and I wanted and never strayed from that. Dave is a very clever writer and was able to turn a few dot points into a lovely story about my husband and I. He kept our ceremony fun and engaging and we had wonderful feedback from guests about how great of a job Dave did. Dave is very well presented, speaks clearly and is very professional. If you’re after a fun ceremony with a bit of emotion Dave is definitely the perfect celebrant.read more

Dave was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding ceremony. We had no idea what we wanted and really had no vision for our ceremony before we met with Dave. Dave worked through everything with us, got to know us both and provided advice and examples for us to work with. Dave was flexible, considerate and an absolute professional.read more

As a marriage celebrant myself, I knew everything to watch out for. Dave was incredibly professional and nothing at all was a bother for him. I don't even have any constructive feedback, as he was perfect! If you're looking for a celebrant who will ensure your special day will run smoothly and who has great ideas on how your special day should plan out, look no further than Dave Segal. I 100% recommend him! To say I'm happy with Dave's services, would be an understatement.read more

Dave officiated at our wedding on Sunday with nearly 100 guests and struck exactly the right tone. He was very responsive to our wishes, gave us valuable and practical advice beforehand without overwhelming us or imposing, and helped kick off a great day with his confident and easy handling of the ceremony. We highly recommend Dave’s services.read more

After meeting Dave we knew he was the right fit for our wedding. He answered all our questions and encouraged us to write a ceremony that was unique to us. Dave was easy going with all of our requests and we had every confidence that the ceremony would run smoothly with Dave as our celebrant, which it did.read more

I cannot highly recommend David enough. David was completely understanding and accommodating of the simple and intimate ceremony that my partner and I envisaged. He helped us from early discussions through rehearsals and into the day itself (I'm still amazed at how easy David managed to keep the whole process!). The end result was a ceremony that was more beautiful and perfect than my partner and I thought possible. Thanks David!read more

Dave really listened to us, and totally understood what we wanted. I had so many compliments from guests about how well the ceremony went and how professional Dave is. We were delighted and our wedding ceremony was completely memorable, happy and gorgeous. I've told Dave how I felt on arrival that I was in safe hands, and he guided us through it so smoothly.read more

Thank you Dave for facilitating a great ceremony and event. Allan and I really appreciated your professionalism before, during, and after the ceremony. It was a great help to us to be provided with a 'marriage ceremony' template to write out our own words, and to then have you provide helpful feedback. We had a fantastic day and couldn't have been more pleased with how the ceremony went. Many thanks, Steve Brownread more

Dave was amazing from start to finish. He is well organised both in the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day. Dave is very well spoken, he wrote a wonderful story about my husband and I working off only a few dot points and he made sure that the ceremony ran smoothly. He met the brief of a modern, fun and slightly emotional ceremony perfectly. We could not recommend Dave highly enough and our guests were also very happy with Dave.read more

We highly recommend Dave's expertise as a celebrant! We felt supported and guided by his knowledge and insight and he made sure we were comfortable and confident in the lead up to our wedding. We met a few celebrants but liked Dave straight away. He helped us make the ceremony 'ours' and he is a wonderful speaker. He also has an amazing range of skills and training that ensure that you can trust he will be able to tackle any problems that could happen. He was the perfect choice for us. Thank you so much Dave for making our special day happen!read more
