“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.”
Jake was the celebrant and M.C. for our big day and I cant even put into words how amazing he was! He has such a bubbly personality and just made everything run so perfectly! I couldn’t fault him if i tried! He is the best of the best at his job and I’ve had nothing but compliments from everyone who had the privilege to meet him!!!

“What can we say Jake you are truly amazing. From the first moment we met you for coffee we knew we were in fantastic hands. You made our day so beautiful and special and we cant thank you enough for marrying us. It was an absolute pleasure having you part of our special day, You are such a beautiful, talented, awesome person, our guest loved you and you made our ceremony just perfect. Thank you Jake. Love Jess and Adam”
“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!
“Thankyou so much for marrying us! We could not have done it without you (quite literally!!) You will always be a part of our special day and we could not be more grateful for all your support that made our ceremony so memorable!! All the very best and thankyou again!”
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!”
We were so incredibly lucky to have Jake as our Celebrant. Jake really made the effort to know and understand us and this was reflected in our ceremony - it was perfect. We were so lucky to have Jake by our side and what a positive energy! We can not recommend Jake enough - all our guests and other vendors made a point of saying how amazing he was. And for me so calming; thank you for helping make our day so special Jake; and not just the day but the meetings, emails, all the guidance and the willingness to help us with little things we wanted along the way. You are a true professional and it is so clear you are doing what you love! Thank you so much!
“Once again I would like to sincerely thank you for the huge positive impact you had, it really made a difference to my nerves and your personality and style suited the occasion and vibe perfectly. I’ve had several people comment on the radiance and energy you brought to the ceremony. From our point of view it was well worth flying you half way across the country to marry us!”
Thanks again Jake

“Jake was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. We originally selected Jake as the celebrant for our wedding as he was able to deliver a casual outdoor ceremony but with a spiritual element that wasn't overly traditional. He provided excellent detail in all written communications, connected with us multiple times over skype ahead of the wedding to ensure we were prepared and at ease and delivered on the day well above expectations. We had numerous comments from guests on how great Jake was. Highly recommend!”
“Jake will make your ceremony feel like home. Every single person at the wedding loved him and we will definitely be recommending him to every engaged couple for years! He puts in so much effort and love into the ceramony and everyone can feel it on the day. Thank you!”

“My husband Mitchell and I would highly recommend Jake. He was fantastic throughout the whole process from our first coffee meeting so he could get to know us and explain to us the next steps, right through to our wedding day and beyond. On the day he was calm and reassuring, encouraging us as we each did our part through the ceremony, allowing us time to take it all in, and perfectly summarising our relationship to our family and friends in a fun but heartfelt way. We had a number of people tell us after the wedding how brilliant Jake's ceremony was and we couldn't agree more. Thank you for being a part of our very special day.”

“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 cannot begin to describe how wonderful Jake was throughout the whole process; before, during and after our day. Jake was both our Pastor and MC which allowed us to be so relaxed during the day knowing everything was being taken care of. Jake has such a wonderful manner, so up beat and gave our ceremony and reception this fun vibe which we loved. If we were ever nervous or a little lost he helped us out ensuring we were comfortable and knew what was going on. Jake is so professional and meticulous and gave us a lot of advice and tips for our day which were invaluable.
Hiring Jake was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and we can not recommend him enough.”

“We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony! Our friends and family thought Jake had been a friend for quite a while to get our ceremony so right. Every detail was perfect. The mood was light hearted, and everyone had such a great day. Jake helped add the element of magic to the day, and captured our personalities perfectly.”
