Louise McDonough Beautiful and Bespoke Ceremonies

Louise McDonough Beautiful and Bespoke Ceremonies


I'm a contemporary celebrant who goes above and beyond to help you create the ceremony of your dreams - beautiful and bespoke ceremonies for every occasion.

Whether you have your heart set on a wedding at one of Australia's most beautiful beaches, wineries or high end wedding venues, you'll want to be sure that at the end of the day it was the best ever!

And I can certainly guarantee your ceremony will be. I'll work closely with you to create and deliver a unique ceremony that is everything you want it to be - one that is meaningful, sincere and a celebration of who you both are.

Celebrancy brings together my lifelong passion for people, their relationships and their stories with my wealth of experience as a diplomat and senior manager.

I conduct weddings in the NSW South Coast, Shoalhaven, Illawarra, Southern Tablelands & Canberra regions.


We would like to say what a wonderful service Louise performed - but the relationship with Louise had been built over the weeks approaching the wedding date. Louise attended to every detail, gave advice & instilled in us a sense of peace with a very personable & professional approach. I cannot recommend Louise as your celebrant highly enough. Louise you are not only a great celebrant, but a really lovely person to know.

Louise was absolutely amazing. Josh and I are from Wagga and had our wedding in Mollymook. Louise went out of her way to help us out as we did not know the area well. She offered to speak with council and organise everything. She made the ceremony completely personalised. I cannot recommend Louise highly enough, we are truly blessed to have her on our wedding day and it would not have been the same without her. I cannot thank her enough xo

Louise is everything we wished for in a celebrant. She’s poised, dignified and professional and made us feel like the world’s most special couple on our wedding day. After only one meeting with Louise, she completely understood who we were and what we stood for as a couple. She was able to create a magical ceremony for us that reflected our personalities and relationship. We’re so glad we found Louise and we would highly recommend her.

We cannot recommend Louise more highly as a celebrant! Being left without a celebrant suddenly in the final weeks to our wedding, we found a silver lining - and that was Louise. From the very beginning, Louise made us feel like she had everything under control, which was a breath of fresh air during the chaos of planning our own wedding. Louise completely embraced and celebrated us for who we were which was strongly reflected during our unique and lighthearted ceremony, and no request was too difficult. Louise, we can't thank you enough! I only wish I could have another wedding for you to officiate! xxx

Louise recently married us and we were so happy that we had chosen Louise to be our celebrant. She is professional, helpful and very passionate about what she does. We felt at ease with Louise from the moment we met her. Her calm nature and highly organised manner really helped relieve any nerves we may have had. We would highly recommend Louise and can't thank her enough for making our ceremony so magical.

Louise went above and beyond to make our wedding so special and such a great memory for us and our children. Right from the start we knew we were in good hands. Louise is lovely to deal with, highly organised and nothing was too much trouble. She took a genuine interest in us as a couple and in our children. This showed through in the beauty of the ceremony she wrote and which she delivered with feeling and professionalism. We cannot recommend Louise highly enough.

We were very impressed with Louise since the first day we met, she gave an aura of professionalism and kindness that we instantly felt comfortable with her. We didn't even bother meeting with another celebrant, Louise's approach was exactly what we were after: a ceremony that would reflect us as a couple. Louise provided all the necessary info not only during our first meeting, but in the lead up and even after our wedding. The ceremony itself was beautifully done, so much so that lots of our guests commented on how lovely and personal it was told and that they enjoyed every minute. My parents in particular loved Louise's approach. Louise is a beautiful person and a wonderful celebrant, she created a ceremony that we will remember forever. Thank you Louise!!!

On 15th December 2015 we had the absolute pleasure of being married by Louise McDonough at Chinaman’s Beach. Louise made the whole process, from the initial planning through to our ceremony, such a simple, stress- free experience. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect in every way. Louise created an intimate, emotion filled ceremony for us and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight! Even our photographer was wiping away tears! Our day wouldn’t have been what it was if it wasn’t for Louise and her amazing attention to detail. Louise travelled to our home to meet us and transformed ‘our story’ into a beautiful, touching ceremony. We feel truly blessed that we found Louise for our ceremony! It was ‘meant to be’ as they say! Louise was wonderful to deal with, fast to respond to all of our queries, punctual, immaculately groomed and she delivered our ceremony with absolute perfection. All of our guests commented that they had never experienced a ceremony like ours and were all overcome with emotion. There was laughter and tears and Louise held everyone’s attention throughout the entire ceremony. We are more than happy to recommend Louise McDonough as a Civil Celebrant to anyone that is looking to get married. You will not be disappointed! A huge THANKYOU to you again Louise! Not only are you an amazing Celebrant, you’re a genuine, sincere and absolutely gorgeous person.

Louise was the perfect celebrant for our special day. We found the most difficult aspect of planning our wedding was finding the right celebrant; the different personalities can really set a positive/negative atmosphere to the day. We asked our photographer for suggestions and she fortunately recommended Louise. Immediately from our first telephone conversation Louise was a clear professional in her field and so personable. All throughout the lead up to the wedding Louise was genuinely excited, supportive & extremely knowledgeable when it came to the legalities and all aspects of marriage. She has an impressive collection of helpful documents, which came in handy when it came to writing our vows. The rehearsal ceremony was another fantastic element of the service Louise provides to her clients; she even organised our music the day before our wedding. Post-wedding, the most popular feedback we received from our guests was in regards to how wonderful Louise was; a true indication of the fantastic role she plays at her client weddings. An unusual aspect to our wedding was having our grandfathers witness the marriage, from the first mention of this Louise was incredibly supportive. For us it was a highlight of the wedding day. A month after, one of our grandfathers passed away and we have his signature on our marriage certificate as a lasting memory. Both our families thank Louise for allowing us to have such a special memory incorporated into the ceremony.

From the moment we met Louise, we knew she was the one to marry us. It was great to find someone that truly enjoys what she does and as such the whole process, from start to finish, was inspiring to us. Louise genuinely and sincerely took the time to get to know us. She tailored materials and her advice making quite a daunting process very easy. She gave us plenty of assistance as well as the freedom to design a ceremony that reflected us, making it incredibly personal and special to not only us but our family and friends as well. The day itself was absolutely perfect! We cannot thank Louise enough for presiding over and steering us through our very special day. We would definitely recommend Louise to anyone who is looking to get married. Many thanks again.
