Dear Brides and Grooms to be!
If there is anything your planning for when getting married in Dubai, it should be Theresa. Theresa MADE our entire ceremony. It is so important to be relaxed and comfortable and feel connected to the individual who conducts your symbolic ceremony. Theresa is just this. From the moment we met, and I heard her voice on the phone I felt so at ease and so confident for the day ahead.
To be honest, I was just expecting to meet with another vendor.. to tick my list, another major thing outstanding would now be complete. I came home however and found this beautiful, vibrant lady filled with smiles and giggles waiting to greet me. Theresa makes the world a better place with her smile and instantly puts you at ease. Theresa is a listener and this is so important when it comes to discussing how you want the day to go. Everyone is watching, cameras are filming and you’re nervous enough already… so the wording and the order of events needs to be in capable hands. Let me tell you, I never worried about a thing. Not for a second, if anything Theresa became my confidante and made everything simple and enjoyable.
My husband is shy… and I was really worried that it was all going to be a but much. Actually wait shy is an understatement! He is beyond timid and extremely conscious of people listening to him speak English as it is not his native language. Yet lo and behold, I had him walking down an aisle, saying vows twice the length of mine and loving every second of it!! We could never have achieved this if Theresa wasn’t with us every step of the way. 99% percent of the feedback mentioned how beautiful our ceremony was and how they could all feel our love. This is purely down to the way Theresa conducted our ceremony and made all the guests feel welcome.
Now, I know this reads like a testimonial which I suppose in a way it is.. however, I really want to say I am not writing this like a review of a vendor, I am writing about a friend who impacted our lives and made our wedding day. There are people who impact you from the first meeting, there are people who have infectious spirits… this is Theresa. I genuinely love her dearly and cannot recommend her enough.
PS… just a little note to B&G’s out there reading this: When the legal part is done and your bursting to get in your white dress, take the time to remember the importance of the day. The ceremony specifically. Take it slow and absorb every single second. I am sure you will have read this whilst planning for your day… but it really does go so fast. It’s now almost a month since my wedding and what I can remember the most is Theresa at the end of the aisle giving it her all to make this day perfect for us. And it was just that, perfect.
You will make right and wrong decisions when picking wedding vendors here in Dubai… but make the right choice when it comes to your celebrant and choose Theresa. Just look at my photos that Theresa has shared on this page.. look at my face and you will know this is more than just a testimonial.
Lots of Love,
Yasser & Ruth
‘From the minute we met Theresa,
we knew she was the right person to marry us. She exuded vibrancy, warmth and love and had a whole load of passion about marriage; which Stephen affectionately coined as PAM! A few weeks later, Teresa came to Sri Lanka and married us in front of friends and family.
She gathered everyone around us in a semi-circle and with the ocean as a back drop, she shared our love story and we exchanged vows, in a most beautiful, intimate setting. She had everyone in tears…….Amazing!! Thank you Theresa for creating and sharing very special memories with us. ‘

Theresa’s passion for marriage and love is truly inspirational.
From the moment we met her, we knew straight away that we wanted her to be part of our special day.
Uniting together from two different cultures, it was extremely important to us that although our ceremony would not be religious based we wanted to ensure that the importance of us starting our life together as man and wife was met. Theresa tailored made our ceremony to help us incorporate both of our cultures into the blessing.She explained to us that our day would be about two people joining together and celebrating our love for one another in front of all the most important people to us.
She is so kind hearted and easy to talk to whilst bringing the joy of marriage alive, making you feel at ease and excited for this huge step in life.
I am so thankful to have found her and recommend her 100%.
Theresa you truly are amazing!!!!!
There is love in marriages and there is love for marriages and that is exactly what our wonderful celebrant Theresa Du Toit is about!
Her love for and love in marriages is brighter than the sunshine itself! She brings two souls together in humble and happy ways and that makes for the best start to a marriage.
Theresa met us a few times before the wedding and she listened to our story. She understood exactly why we loved each other and supported us in getting ready for married life. She went beyond just the celebratory event on the day, her connections in the Dubai weddings arena gave us options on planners, florists, musicians and much more. She was an integral part of our weddings and it would not have been the same without Theresa.
As for her role as the celebrant, she is bubbly, she is a ray of sunshine, she is passionate, she is joyful and happy. She made the entire ceremony smile, laugh and be happy. Theresa brought out, not just our love for each other but every couple, parent, child and friends love for life and love in each other. She portrayed love as it should be and certainly brought everyone together.There were many wonderful moments at our wedding and one highlight was the way Theresa conducted the ceremony.
She stays in touch with us constantly and again has gone beyond being the celebrant, she is and will be a great role model in our lives. Her footsteps in life are a great example of love and we would highly recommend Theresa as a friend, a confidant, a role model and the most wonderful wedding celebrant!

Anyone close to us would tell you that my husband and I are a pair of weirdos.
When we decided to get married, we wanted our wedding to represent who we are as a couple. We were very particular about everything, from the flowers to the music, to the celebrant. It all needed to be just right.
Theresa was recommended to me through Facebook. While scrolling through her page, I had this gut feeling that we had found our girl. After meeting with her for the first time, I was 100% sure of it. It was as if she had known us for years. She delivered a beautiful ceremony that was tailor-made for us. I didn’t want it to be sappy and overly-emotional; while tears were inevitable from our auntie Janice, Theresa made it cheerful, funny, and inspiring. Her all-round aura is just vibrant and warm and you can tell that she just loves marriage, love, and celebrating 2 silly kids who are madly in love.
If you’re looking for a celebrant who will pay extra attention to even the smallest of details about your day and translate that into the blessing ceremony she conducts, I can’t recommend anyone other than Theresa.
Adam and I can’t thank you enough for making our day absolutely perfect. You were such a joy to have on the day and we will never forget it.
Jay and Adam.
