Kind words…

“Jo was an amazing celebrant for our wedding. She was the perfect combination of creating a natural and relaxed environment for us and our guests, whilst also helping us tremendously throughout the lead up to the wedding. She was very clear and concise about what is needed to be done in preparation for the big day, and was more than helpful with creating the vows. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone who is getting married. 10/10, thank you Jo.”

So, what’s your idea of a perfect ceremony?

An intimate elopement in a secret bush sanctuary? A big ol’ shin-dig in a gorgeous rustic barn? Barefoot in the backyard? Or the most plush and flower-filled gathering in one of the Highland’s premium venues?

Regardless, we’ll work together to nail the most important moment: the moment when you commit to an awesome life together!

Got some wedding angst? That’s totally fine (and normal, tbh). Jo wants to make your ceremony planning process enjoyable, help you navigate any curve-balls… and on the day, help you be as ‘in the moment’ as possible!

“The lead-up to your big day will be busy, and at times, a bit stressful. But – trust me – planning your ceremony, and then experiencing it on the day, can be really (really) enjoyable!”

Jo cares deeply about inclusivity and gender and marriage equality.

A few more kind words…

“Jo was absolutely amazing! Jo spent so much time with us leading up to our wedding, she was so helpful getting us organised on all the paperwork side of things. Jo sets time aside for meetings each week leading up to ensure your ceremony is as perfect as you would like it to be! Our ceremony is so unforgettable thanks to her! We could not thank Jo enough!”

~ Shannon and Nathan, November 2021, Bendooley Estate

“Jo went above and beyond for us on our special day. She had some suggestions and adapted her ceremony to a style that was beautifully tailored to our dream wedding. She spent a huge amount of time with us and was always available to immediately answer any questions we had. The ceremony was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have hoped for a better day.” 

~ Ashleigh and Chris, December 2021, Little Forest, Alpine

“We were over the moon with everything you did on the day. Especially your quick thinking to give Laura her aisle to walk down! Without Jo our wedding wouldn’t have been nearly as special as what it was. If you’re thinking about having Jo as your celebrant, then stop thinking and lock her in!”

~ Laura and Peter, November 2021, Bendooley Estate

Happy brides = happy Celebrants

“From the very beginning I knew that Jo would be exactly who we’d want to officiate our marriage. Jo is a warm and down to earth person, who really listens and whose genuine nature is impossible not to be drawn to!

Jo went above and beyond to make organising our ceremony easy and was so accommodating and patient. I felt our ideas and circumstances were truly heard and understood, and we were also given practical and helpful advice where necessary.

At the wedding, she delivered a heartfelt and beautiful ceremony and engaged with our guests in such an authentic way, it was like having an extra guest there!

Throughout this whole process, Jo has been incredible. I couldn’t have had a better celebrant! I highly recommend Jo as a celebrant for all couples planning their wedding day or elopement.

Thank you Jo for helping us make our wedding day so exactly how we imagined it!”

~ Kelly, November 2020

In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.
