About Pastel Blues

“One is immediately taken with her incredible enthusiasm and genuine interest and care in other people”
Tanya Sim, Referee

Pastel Blues is named after Nina Simone’s first album – a tribute to creating amazing back room jazz.

Making a ceremony special and memorable requires exceptional planning, facilitation and people skills. It also requires the passion and commitment to ensure each ceremony reflects the unique individuals that are the focus of the event.

I have worked in professional communications and research roles in the corporate environment for over 16 years; including senior positions with BHP Billiton, Woodside Energy Ltd, Coffey Environments and the City of Westminster in the UK. In these positions, I have managed projects that focused on engaging individuals in communities as far north as Port Hedland and east as Waihi in New Zealand. This included facilitating workshops, creative focus groups, social research and developing presentations.

I bring this professional experience to your ceremony and add the warmth and magic that I believe are the key ingredients to creating a wonderful ceremony that enable your friends and family to feel an active part.

I am registered on the Attorney General’s list of official marriage celebrants and am active participant in my local community.

Testimonials

“I cannot recommend Danicia enough as your marriage celebrant! Danicia is a fantastic listener and helped shape our simple but intimate ceremony into our perfect wedding. Danicia’s warm and personable manner allowed the small number of guests who were present to feel as though they were an integral part of our special day. Danicia was very flexible and accommodating with last minute changes we made to our ceremony and ensured everything ran smoothly. Danicia looked the perfect part on the day and her delivery was flawless. Thank you again Danicia for sharing your amazing self with us on our day!

Danicia, we wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything. Everyone was commenting on how ‘real’ and ‘personal’ the ceremony was and that it was such a reflection of us as a couple and that is all thanks to you. You wrote the most amazing ceremony for us and it all went off without a hitch. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and for making us feel so comfortable on such a crazy day.”
