"We are over the moon with our choice of Jake as celebrant for our big day. He is charismatic with a kind and calm manner and throughout the whole process he made efforts to personalise our day. In the end, we got a ceremony that was funny, heartfelt and completely reflected who we are as a couple. Since our wedding we've had many guests comment on how how great Jake was and how they really felt he set the tone for the whole day. Our never-empty dance floor indicated that the tone he set was spot on! Not to mention - he was very helpful with answering any questions, and allaying any concerns we had in the lead up to the big day which helped to put us at ease."

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 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!”

“From the initial meeting, he was an absolute delight; we had a blast preparing for our big day with Jake. Jake conducted himself in a very professional manner whilst keeping a relaxed feel which definitely calms any nerves on the big day.
All in all he is an amazing human being and his passion for love and celebrating it really shows in his craft.
We could not recommend Jake more! The idea of a ceremony made us both so anxious and we were dreading making our family and friends sit through a tedious boring event. Thanks to Jake that was nowhere close to the vibe on the day. We were both so relaxed and our family and friends in uncontrollable laughter and joy. We are truly so thankful.”

“Jake was absolutely outstanding at our wedding at Sirromet. I was having some serious anxiety before the ceremony and Jake calmed me down so easily. He felt like an old friend during the ceremony. He put both myself and Trent at ease and we were so comfortable with him. Jake thank you for setting up our day for a truly magical start. Trent and I couldn’t be happier with having you marry us”

“We couldn't be happier with Jake as our wedding celebrant. Jake's bubbly personality and enthusiasm on the day captivated our guests and we were asked many times if Jake was a family friend we had known for years.
It was important to us that our ceremony was engaging and Jake certainly delivered on that while adding a touch of humor and some emotional moments.”

"Jake did a phenomenal job with our wedding ceremony! From the moment we met him prior to the ceremony, we felt so comfortable with him he really and made us feel so blessed and lucky to have found each other. He walked us through the ceremony planning making it a breeze and really making it personal and fun. We were made to feel nothing but upbeat, comfortable and full of love at the altar and Jake had our guests engaged for the entire ceremony. We could not be happier with his work and received compliments all night and even days after about him throughout our day. Could not recommend him more!!"

“Jake is the best in the business! He was very personable and helped us feel relaxed on the day. The ceremony had a lovely thread of humour through it, while still emphasising the importance of the commitment we were making to each other. Jake made sure our ceremony reflected who we were as a couple - we highly recommend him!”

“Our experience with Jake was so fantastic, it's hard to know where to begin. From our very first meeting, Jake made us feel at ease. Throughout the process, he offered consultation and advice for aspects of our ceremony planning we hadn't even considered. In the end, it was those little details that made the day even more special. The ceremony itself was unforgettable. Jake created a beautiful ceremony that reflected us perfectly, as if we had known him for years. Pastor Jake, your heart for weddings and marriage completely shines through, and it was an honour to have you as part of our day! Couldn't recommend highly enough!”

Jake is fantastic! From our initial phone conversation and meeting he was very calm and caring. He guided us through the paperwork and ceremony planning, and always gave great advice. On the wedding day he was super organised and thought of everything beforehand. Essentially he made us relaxed and we had little to worry about. He made all of us very comfortable. Jake is professional with his work, but at the same time gives a very personal service. Always very easy to reach and approachable. My wife and I are very happy with his service. Highly recommended.

He was so wonderful! from visiting me just before the ceremony to say hello & ease my nerves with some last words of advice, to helping my Mum at the alter when she got confused & forgot to sit down. It could have been super awkward. But with Jake's quick thinking, he took her gently by the arm & showed her to her seat effortlessly. He's just the type of person that you want around, with his bubbly personality & kind heart, we can't thank him enough.

Jake created something really special for both of us and our guests.To have guests comment after the day is over 'how beautiful the ceremony was' meant a lot to us. Jake is just one of those people that radiate warmth, genuine kindness and puts everyone at ease so they can enjoy the day.

As you can see, we had a nice day at the High Church, a bright and beautiful inner city chapel!

Thank you so much for being part of our day. We had comments from everyone about how lovely you our service was and how amazing, relaxed and professional you were. We had several people even ask how long you had known us because of the personal touches in our ceremony. Thank you again for performing the ceremony and for catering to our requests. We will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know getting married in the future.

Many thanks for our wonderful ceremony. All of our guests loved it (despite the scorching hot day!) It was beautiful and romantic thanks to you. Thanks for making the day so special and heart-felt for us. My mum even told me that I'd 'picked the right celebrant'!. We are so happy that we chose you!
