Below are some testimonials from recent marriages that I have celebrated.
Steve & Jess - April 2018
Jo was amazing! She was professional, easy to work with and made planning our ceremony a breeze. She presented us with a whole range of great ceremony options that allowed us to tailor how we structured the ceremony to feel personal and unique to us. On the day she was a joy to have around and brought her warmth, vitality and caring to the ceremony itself. She has a great mix of down-to-earth charm, humour and real world romance that is very unique. I could not recommend her highly enough and after having worked in the wedding industry for over 10 years, I can confidently say she is the best. Thanks Jo - you made our ceremony the best part of our wedding!
Rebecca & Chris - April 2018
Hope you've been well
We just wanted to touch base and say thank you, seriously you made our day the best day ever! Everyone loved how fun and beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you!!
Steph & Kurt - April 2018
My fiancé Kurt and I chose Jo to perform as celebrant at our wedding and I couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, fun, professional and easy to work with person. As the celebrant plays an integral part of the wedding, it was imperative that Jo be the person we wanted to stand beside us and guide us through the happiest day of our lives, so far!
We loved the personal details Jo asked us to provide so she could tailor make our ceremony so it was all about us, not just other peoples words out of a book.
I would highly recommend Jo to any married couple to be who wants to rest assured that they will have the day of their dreams. Thanks Jo!
Zoe & Adam - March 2018
As soon as I spoke to Jo on the phone for the first time I knew she was the celebrant for us. The conversation flowed and I could tell how easy going she was which is exactly how we are and also a representation of our special today as we decided to elope! She made the whole process very easy and said some beautiful words at our ceremony. We really couldn't have asked for a better celebrant to share our day with and are so glad that Jo was apart of it.
Thank you again :)
Amy & Jeff - August 2017
Jo is an excellent celebrant, and we loved sharing our day with her. She went above and beyond to help us create the perfect ceremony. She had heaps of information and suggestions, both written up and in our meetings. She is fun and easy-going but also deeply professional. She really helped to make our day what it was and we couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you for everything.
- Jeff and Amy
Natalie & Josh - May 2017
Thanks so much! We had the most perfect afternoon and you really did an amazing job of setting the exact tone we were after - personal, relaxed and fun. In fact, we had people asking us how long we had been friends with you, so that is a good indication.
Daina & Ben - April 2017
"Jo was Absolutely amazing! Very down to earth and easy going. Jo went above and beyond for us, even giving my 90 year old grandmother her shawl during the ceremony to keep warm. Words can't describe how grateful we were to have her part of our special day."
Sammy & Adrian - March 2017
Could not have been better! Incredibly professional but also laid back which reflected us perfectly and is a good vibe on the day. Jo took care of all the paperwork required and I didn't have to worry about a thing in the lead up to the day. Highly recommended!
Mel & Rudi - March 2017
Thank you so much Jo for an amazing day! You were professional, extremely helpful and added a special personal touch to our day. Thank you for taking the time to also travel for the day, we would definitely recommend your services, you made it super easy! Thank you x
Michelle & Hastono - February 2017
Having Jo as our celebrant was one of the best choices we made for our wedding! Jo is so relaxed and easy going and supported us in making the type of ceremony that we were after.
She was so wonderful throughout the planning process, taking the time to come across the city to meet with us more than once and sending useful resources to help us write our vows, etc. Her calming presence was much appreciated in the days leading up to the wedding and on the day!
Many of our guests mentioned how lovely the ceremony was and how great our celebrant was! Some even thought that she might have been a friend of ours, given how at ease she was!
I absolutely recommend Jo to other couples or to anyone looking for a celebrant for their event.
Krischan & Jacqui - October 2016
Jo is amazing! Not only did she make everything so easy for us to do but she was able to prompt a forgetful bride to write her vows! Jo has an easy, friendly and fun manner that fills you with confidence and makes you feel like you are floating on clouds. She was more than happy to travel over an hour to meet up with us on multiple occasions and had us laughing without trying. Jo was able to capture the essence of my husband and I without it feeling like she was guessing or reading from a cliche script. She really did understand us and helped us to make our ceremony as personal as we wanted it to be. Jo went the extra mile for us and not only incorporated a hand binding ceremony into our vows but she was more than happy to offer to stay back an extra hour and a half while we waited for the ribbons to arrive because I was silly enough to forget them in the first place!! Our guests couldn't stop raving about our ceremony and how amazing our celebrant was! I would recommend Jo without hesitation to any bride looking for a fun and genuine celebrant
Krischan & Jacqui - October 2016
David and I would like to personally thank you for all that you did for Jacqueline and Krischan on their wedding day.
We appreciate the effort that you went to, ensuring that Jacqueline’s and Krischan’s special day was not spoilt by staying back to perform the hand binding ceremony at the Reception. This part of the ceremony was extremely special to them and by giving us your time to ensure that it still went ahead – words cannot express enough our gratitude.
Karen & Luke - May 2016
We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful wedding celebrant than Jo, she was phenomenal and exceeded all our expectations. Jo has a very warm nature, is very easy going, calm and helpful - she drove out to our house twice to run us through all the details and gave us some great ideas for the ceremony. Once we had decided on everything we wanted to be included in our ceremony, Jo put it all together to us, which was so helpful. We included a sand ceremony for example and Jo organised beautiful jars for us to use, she put the entire ceremony transcript into a beautiful book, which we got to keep, and generally took care of almost everything so there was very little for us to worry about.
On the day, she was just so professional and being a lovely person, she added a great vibe to the occasion. In fact, a lot of our guests commented on what a fantastic celebrant we had!
What really set her apart from any other wedding celebrant of course is that she is also one of Australia's best singers and was kind enough to perform a few songs for us after the ceremony, one of them being our first dance.
I wholeheartedly recommend Jo to anyone as a wedding celebrant, we feel very lucky and honoured to have had her. Thank you, Jo!
Abel & Anna - April 2016
"We just wanted to express our heartfelt thanks to you for helping to make our big day so memorable.
The ceremony was just what we wanted and we received lots of compliments on you in particular.
Also, another big thanks for being so flexible with the arrangements beforehand - we really appreciated your input and guidance.
Anna & Abel"
Matt & Alba - September 2016
Thank you for guiding us through the requirements for a non-resident to be married in Australia and making, what could have been a very stressful experience, fun and memorable. We appreciated your warm and informative explanation of the process and your understanding of our needs for a small civil ceremony before our wedding ceremony in Spain.
Matt & Alba
Danny & Karina - September 2015
After having Jo celebrate our wedding I felt compelled to share our experience with anyone who was looking for a celebrant.
She was great!
We met Jo as the celebrant at a friend's wedding. Her natural and genuine style was perfect for what we wanted to make our wedding: Fun (no.1), easy-going, low-key and focused on close friends and close family just having a good time!
She was well organised in all the areas you'd hope for. Working out the legal stuff and all the formalities was quick and painless, and then there were all the formalities that first timers don't know about!
I guess the best part was that she helped us with some practical aspects that we'd never have thought about and even had some great suggestions for working out the vows. We never thought we'd go for that but it actually helped in setting up a framework for us to do our thing with.
So, having now seen her work at two quite different weddings I'd enthusiastically recommend Jo if you're after a down-to-earth, flexible, genuine and helpful celebrant.
Alana & Shane - March 2015
Thank you very much for being part of our special day. We had a truly fabulous time and our ceremony was just perfect! Your professionalism and calming influence both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself, were very much appreciated. We love the way your performed the Ceremony, with confidence and style.
Also thank you also for the lovely booklet on our ceremony you prepared for us, we will keep it forever. We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a professional and fantastic celebrant.
Many thanks, love and best wishes.
Alana & Shane
Robyn & John - January 2015
Having wanted a relaxed and somewhat informal ceremony, Jo was fantastic at handholding us through the process of deciding what options we chose for our wedding day.
From day 1 we found Jo was perfectly in tune with us whilst at the same time being fantastic at suggesting ideas we would not have otherwise thought about and which helped in making our day extra special.
Jo looked after all the necessary paper work and procedures ensuring it was a seamless and pleasant experience. Jo's calming persona made the day itself relaxed for both of us and all those involved with the ceremony.
A pleasure to work with, I'll definitely be booking her for my next wedding ;)
