Right from the get-go, as soon as we met, he was like a best friend. He made us feel so comfortable from the café meeting, via email and right through to the wedding. Jake calmed and helped my husband in the moments before the ceremony when the emotion became too much.
We can’t Thank Jake enough in creating a lovely specialised ceremony and vows which received many great comments. He is amazing and we highly recommend him for your special day.
Thank-you Jake!

Jake was nothing short of amazing! He helped both myself and my husband relax during the ceremony so that we could both actually enjoy it, as opposed to being overwhelmed with nerves! He was spreading so much infectious happiness from the get go and our guests had nothing but positive things to say about him. Highly recommend 🙌🏽🤗

What can you say about Jake that hasn't already been said?! We thought finding a celebrant we liked would be one of the hardest things we would do for our wedding. From our first website contact with Jake it was a great experience. Our first coffee together we knew that the search was over and we found the perfect guy. All the prep was so easy and Jake made everything so straightforward. On the day he took it to a new level and if it wasn't for Jake, who knows what would have happened haha I don't have much experience with celebrants but surely Jake is the best of the best! Thank you ever so much Jake and we hope to catch up with you again at every wedding we attend in the future. Grant & Anita

We count ourselves blessed to have been married by Jake. He was so supportive from start to finish! We went into wedding planning with no knowledge on what needs to be done for a ceremony. Jake’s professionalism and knowledge put us at complete ease and made us feel that we could trust him from very early on. He communicated well throughout the whole process - assisting us with the legalities, explaining the structure of a wedding ceremony and answering any questions we had. Jake was very engaging during our ceremony which made the guests feel welcome and entertained. He also personalised the ceremony to who we are as a couple by working alongside us prior to the day. We had guests complementing us on how fantastic he was all evening. We couldnt have asked for a better celebrant! Lots of love, Katia & Enrique xx

Jake is a must have! So many guests commented on how it was the BEST wedding ceremony they had ever been too and it wasn’t just because Ems and I were getting married but because you did such a superb job! It was the most heart warming feeling hearing your words and truly feeling like you had taken the time to get to know us and deliver a one off personalised ceremony! Through this whole process we knew we were in good hands because of the way you guided us and kept us informed every step of the way. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou! Emma and I are truly grateful for being able to share this journey with you!

Jake your personality and persona is perfect as a celebrant! As a previous wedding photographer I’ve seen many different celebrants perform weddings. You are second to none. From the moment we spoke with you the first time to the end of our ceremony you made everything simple for us. Your manner on the day ensured our ceremony was perfect for us and our family and friends. I couldn’t recommend you more highly. Thank you so very much. Sarah and Matt x

“Jake thankyou so much for our ceremony on Saturday. We are still both on such a high. We ve watched a bit of the ceremony again, and we’re both so amazed by how you took all the info we gave you and created such a great intro for us! And funny; we loved it! We’ve had countless comments from guests on how much they loved you too. We also wanted to thank you for helping us have a ceremony that was meaningful for both of us. Lots of love, Sue and Si.”

“WOW did Jake blow us away! He injected ao much energy into our ceremony which he made sure ran perfectly smoothly. He also smoothed over our nervous tension and even drew out some laughs for us. And leading up to the wedding, he was super helpful and responsive. He had great tips and info as we chose to write our vows ourselves. We were really able to be ‘in the moment’ and enjoy our special day because of Jake, thanks so much!

There is nothing cookie cutter about Jake's approach. We are so pleased we picked him from an ocean of celebrants. Jake came to Bali to marry us and it was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made for our micro-wedding (5 guests). He doesn't just read the lines from a standard script. He goes to so much effort to ensure the ceremony is reflective, inclusive, engaging and fun.

He gave our intimate wedding the exact atmosphere we wanted. There wasn't a dry eye in the villa (including the staff!). The service that was put together for us captured and reflected our love, personalities, values and sense of humour. From interstate and internationally, Jake worked with us to design our perfect ceremony and it all came together without a single hiccup. Thank you so much Jake for making our wedding so very very special. Jake you are so much more than a celebrant.”

“Jake was and is absolutely fantastic. My Husband and I have no regrets about being 'Married by Jake'. Our most wonderful day was made even more memorable and authentic by Jake's presence and personality that we could not possibly have asked for a more perfect ceremony. Jake will always be a part of our lives and we cannot give him a higher recommendation. Jake, thank you so very much for giving us our dream wedding.”

“We were so glad we chose Jake as our marriage celebrant. He made us feel comfortable from the first meeting, right through the whole process. He puts in a lot of effort to personalise your ceremony. We had excellent feedback from many of our guests after the ceremony saying what a great celebrant he was. Would definitely recommend!”
