Every wedding should be unique and personal.
No-one wants a boring, irrelevant ceremony so why have one!? Your ceremony, the moment in your life when you arrive as two, but leave as one, should be better than just 'OK'. Together, we can make it personal, meaningful and memorable (for the RIGHT reasons!)
Based on feedback from hundreds of delighted couples, I believe the following offers exceptional value:
Firstly what you won't get!
That horrible, awkward feeling you had at that wedding that time (Cringe!!)
Guests who have no idea what's happening (Awkward!)
Stress... lots of unnecessary stress!!
A celebrant who is still 'practising', nervous or just reading through a standard script.
A celebrant that tries too hard to be funny (oh dear!!) Humour is great; telling 'knock knock' jokes or bringing up things about your own relationship... not so much!!
What you will get, included in my fee
An initial (obligation-free) meeting or phone call.
Preparation/creation of your unique, personal ceremony.
Unlimited email and phone contact.
Wedding Ceremony Tips; advice based on years of experience.
Ceremony run-through; over a coffee once your ceremony is finalised (if requested).
Preparation of your professionally printed Australian Federal Government marriage certificate.
Preparation of legal marriage paperwork for the ‘Births Deaths and Marriages’ in the state where the ceremony is held.
Lodgement with the relevant 'Births Deaths and Marriages' to ensure registration of your marriage.
Collaboration with all parties involved in your ceremony to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Delivery of your ceremony in a personal manner, by a confident, but not arrogant public speaker.
Set-up and use of a professional grade, portable, battery operated, public address system (if required).
Confidence; that Jake will be there to help you along the way and you'll have a great ceremony!

Master-Of-Ceremonies by Jake
It's pretty amazing to stay on and serve as the M.C. for your reception. In that role Jake helps oversee and co-ordinate the flow of your reception. An experienced MC takes so much pressure off the bride, the groom and their guests.
Cost: $700-$1100 (depending on location and timing). Let me know if you’re interested and we’ll give you a quote!
When you're ready to go ahead and we've agreed to work on your wedding together, payment of a $300 deposit will be required to confirm your booking. Once received I begin declining other bookings that would clash with yours and also commence work on both your ceremony and your wedding documents.
If you'd like to know more about my pricing feel free to read this little article on celebrant costs.
If I'm currently available for your wedding, let me know if you've got any questions or if you'd like to meet (or call/FaceTime) and I'll lead you through the process from there.
If I haven't yet confirmed that I'm available please complete this short enquiry form which will give me everything I need to confirm my availability and get the ball rolling for you!
