Justin & Courtney

From the get go and first contact you were amazing! All our worries washed away from our first meeting and it felt like we had known you forever. Words can't express how happy we are and how perfect our ceremony was. All our guests commented on how captivated an emotional they were as they all felt so connected with us the entire ceremony. We've had endless compliments about our incredible ceremony and we have you to thank for it all!

Thankyou for making our day so wonderful and easy. You made putting the ceremony together a breeze and all the paperwork seem simple. We cannot thank you enough for being a professional, yet lighthearted and fun with us! We had such a fun ceremony and we loved having you be a part of it! We will definitely recommend you to everyone. Thankyou so much!

When we first met Jake we were just blown away. After the meeting I literally couldn't stop talking about him! I just could not believe how easy it was to get on with him, how lovely and friendly he was and how much we liked him! We really appreciated that he took the time to find out what we wanted and how he helped us combine our two cultures in a way that made us (and our families) feel equally involved and included. He was always there for us and he had everything organised along with many useful tips to help us plan... I couldn't have been more relieved to step out of the bridal car and find Jake waiting outside to check on me and the bridal party and to make sure we were (OK!). The ceremony itself was beautiful and we had people coming up afterwards singing Jake's praises. So, all in all, a HUGE thankyou Jake, for being part of our special day and for all your help and support leading up to it. We literally couldn't have done it without you!

Pastor Jake was absolutely amazing!! Jake was so lovely, friendly and was able to incorporate our two cultures and blended family into a ceremony that ran smooth and perfect. Jake's personal touches to the ceremony and the effort he put in to creating our perfect day did not go unnoticed. We had guests that approached us after the ceremony who are in the process of planning their weddings who asked for Jake's details they were so impressed. I was so nervous leading up to the ceremony but as soon as I reached the end of the aisle it was as if Jake took all the nerves away and made us feel relaxed so that we could enjoy our day. I could not recommend Jake enough nor could I thank him enough for making our day perfect!!!!!

Jake was absolutely amazing. Honestly as a bride he made me feel so calm in the lead up but most importantly on the day of my wedding. He would reply within hours to my emails and nothing was ever too much trouble, he really individualised our ceremony to my husband and I. So many guests commented on how excellent he was. Thank you Jake, I am so glad we chose you as our marriage celebrant.

You were fantastic! Rian and I were so comfortable with you and we loved every minute of our ceremony. In fact you made our ceremony so typical of us that many of our guests assumed you were a long-term friend!

We are so happy Jake was our celebrant for our wedding. He did such a fantastic job. He really made us feel at ease through the entire process, which contributed greatly to the day and lead up going smoothly and helping us feel relaxed and comfortable about it all. Jake was incredibly open & approachable to communicate with in the lead up to the wedding and is thorough in his responses when we had questions along the way. It contributes a great deal to creating trust in the fact that he takes pride in his work and we would be in safe hands on the big day. I had so many people who attended the ceremony mention to me about how they thought it was a fantastic ceremony and we had a great celebrant. Jake really helps shape the ceremony and gives you plenty of ideas on what works well and what doesn't work so well. I can't recommend him enough.
