What my clients say

Janine was lovely and very professional. She worked closely with us, sending us lots of samples and regular communication to create a ceremony perfect for us! She even came out Good Friday for a rehearsal as we got married on Easter Saturday. The only minor negative was the music didn't work too well on the day, possibly not charged properly, but it barely mattered. Our ceremony and day was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend Janine! Thank you again! Tamara and Jeremy Baldwin

We cannot recommend Janine high enough. She is so warm and loving, preparing our wedding was an absolute delight. Janine has a beautiful way of making everyone feel relaxed and at ease. She felt like part of the family, even remembering it was our daughters 1st birthday the day before and giving her a gorgeous, heartfelt gift. Our wedding day was perfect thanks to her, she is such beautiful lady. We would like to thank her from the bottom of our hearts.
Sarah and Gavin
I couldn't commend Janine's work enough. She was a dream to deal with and completely looked after my husband and I. We live in a remote town and so we never actually got to meet Janine until the big day, but when we did meet it felt like we had known each other for ages! my husband and I are both very shy people and she made us both feel so at ease! I changed my mind so much and it was never a problem for her! Janine is your go to celebrant!! You will not regret it :) Thank you Janine!
Clare and Trevor
My husband and I cannot recommend Janine highly enough. Dealing with Janine was an absolute pleasure, right from the beginning she took care of all the paperwork and gave us ideas for our ceremony, and total freedom was given to us to choose the right ceremony for us and she was always there to help. She was always easily contactable via email as we live out of town, and could meet us no problem when we were in the area. She made us feel calm and has a very professional demeanor which puts you at ease and makes it easy to get through the emotional bits of the ceremony! Thank you Janine for being part of our special day!
Lana and Jesse
When Janine did such a fantastic job at our daughters naming ceremony in August 2015 we just knew when we were planning our wedding for 2017 that we wanted Janine and only Janine to be our wedding celebrant! If anyone is looking for a celebrant Janine is your lady! We were so happy with all Janine did for our special day. She was truly the perfect person. She gave us great guidance and her help through out it all was invaluable!!! We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service you conducted on our wedding day Janine, it was everything we could have imagined and more. We highly recommend Janine and her services and can say without a shadow of a doubt if we need a celebrant for an occasion in the future Janine will still be our number 1 choice! Thanks a million Janine!

Janine was amazing. I loved how funny and loveable she was. She made it go smoothly and was absolutely incredible. I would definitely recommend her. 5 stars is not enough - I would give her 10.

Paul and I would like to thank you Janine, for assisting us with everything for the wedding. As you know, eloping made things a little difficult, but you helped us with all the advice we needed, wrote our vows, organised my bouquet and it was a genuine pleasure to have John and Connie as our witnesses. We love you all. Connie is a real card (would love to spend a day with her laughing) and John is a true gentleman.
