Ashleigh and Mark


We were married by Jake a few weeks ago and we could not have been happier with our ceremony. Jake created a ceremony that was lighthearted and meaningful to us and also made the whole process leading up to the wedding very easy. He is great at what he does and helped us keep relaxed and calm on the day. We’ve been to lots of weddings and haven’t seen a celebrant as good or as passionate as Jake. We would highly recommend choosing him as your celebrant!

As soon as we met Jake, we knew he was one special celebrant – we instantly knew he was perfect for us. His charisma, genuine interest, passion and professionalism all shine through immediately. Leading up to our wedding, Jake provided us with relevant advice, including a very handy Ceremony Kit. He also offered advice and assistance with the legal part of marriage, which is very helpful as most people, including us, have no idea what the process entails! Jake took the time to really get to know us individually and as a couple. By the time we got to the ceremony we honestly felt like he was family. On the day, before the ceremony, he introduced himself to everyone and put every guest at ease. In particular, mum certainly appreciated the comfort he gave her. We had several guests tell us how much they loved him, and that he is the best celebrant they have seen. Once the ceremony started, every word Jake articulated captured us perfectly, all the readings made the day very unique. He made us laugh (constantly); think about what is important in life (including the people who surround us) and magnified what being married truly means. We had a few special/unique moments we wanted incorporated into the ceremony and Jake added them in flawlessly – the day was truly tailored to reflect us. From the bottom of our heart, we say: Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making our day so special and making us both fall in love with each other even more. The ceremony is the favourite part of our day, and that is all because of Jake. He is the best Pastor and celebrant we could have ever asked for!

We were so blessed to have Jake as our officiant! He was a pleasure to work with in the lead up to the wedding and delivered an absolutely beautiful ceremony! My now husband and I were suffering from some pre-wedding nerves but he was so kind and calming and not only guided us through it with ease but made it fun! Our guests enjoyed the ceremony hugely and we've had many compliments regarding it! Thank you Pastor Jake!!
