Life is unscripted, raw & real.
So why should your wedding ceremony be any different?!
Creating ceremonies that celebrate the connection you & your partner share, I’m always honoured to stand beside a couple as they take the next step in their lives.
But you’re not here to read about me!
You’re here because you’ve got a big day on the horizon & it’s time to lock in a celebrant.
I could tell you I’m different. I offer value for money to keep wedding costs down. I deal with everything from large, traditional weddings to intimate elopements.
But so does every other celebrant you’ve researched!
So here’s what I will tell you.
If you’re looking for any of the same things, let’s have a chat.

As a wedding celebrant I avoid cliches like the plague (apart from that one). I don’t use tired scripts and write a ceremony that’s rich with your values as a couple and shares your unique journey. Whether you want a traditional ceremony or something quirky and unique, we’ll create something relaxed and fun together.
Whether expected or not, saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy.
With care and compassion as a funeral celebrant I help bring comfort during tough times. When it’s time to celebrate a life I can help craft a ceremony that’s personal, sincere and respectful while still uplifting, inspiring and full of love.
Intimate and special, elopements aren’t about running away from it all but getting away from it all.
It may be the spot you had your first date, or simply a location that means the world to you both. Wherever it is, as your elopement celebrant we’ll start your married life with a romantic and private ceremony that ticks all your boxes.
To legally marry in Australia, you are required by law to sign and lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form. This will be one of the most important items to tick off your wedding ‘to-do’ list to ensure you tick all your legal boxes.
Download the NOIM form below. The NOIM must be signed by both parties being married, and witnessed by me, as your chosen celebrant. This must be done no earlier than 18 months before the wedding and no later than one month before the wedding.
Following your ceremony I will lodge your signed NOIM, as well as the Official Certificate of Marriage signed at your ceremony, and any other relevant legal papers, so that your marriage can be legally registered.
You must be over 18 years of age to legally marry in Australia.

Note: Your form must be signed in my presence.
We’ll chat over the phone or face-to-face. Whatever works for you! I’ll let you know how my process works and give you a chance to see if we’re a good match.
You’ve booked! That’s one less thing to worry about. I’ll fill out all the dull legal stuff for you. It’s no worries. All you have to do is sign on the dotted line.
We’ll catch up for another chat so I can hear all about your love story. I want all the good stuff! I’ll turn this into a personalised wedding script that follows your journey.
Week of the wedding! We’ll go through everything to keep any nerves at bay and make sure we’re all on the same page for the big day
I’ll bring the PA and the warm, genuine touch for your guests to see, hear and enjoy. The wedding ceremony you imagined.
We’ll raise a glass to you, the happy couple (you did it!). I’ll do everything I can to provide a stress free, loving and memorable ceremony.
A real, relatable and fun wedding ceremony that you and your guests will love.
Catch ups, Skype, phone calls, text, email – whatever we need to make sure the ceremony is unique.
Travel to your chosen ceremony location (Includes the Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Caloundra and Maleny - pretty much anywhere you need me to be.)
High quality PA system.
Music Playlist and the ability to play your ceremony music through Bluetooth audio.
Official Wedding Certificate.
All legal paperwork and lodgement of appropriate documentation with Births, Deaths & Marriages.
Jay from the bottom of our hearts- a huge thank you! You genuinely reflect a professional yet relaxed, down-to earth energy and more importantly, made the whole experience for us and our guests fun and relatable. We are forever grateful. Our ceremony at Hidden Grove captured all of those things that we were after because of you. You rock!
Jay could not have been a more perfect celebrant for our wedding. He really captured our story and pulled off a ceremony that was just so “us”. It was really important for us to have a fun, relaxed, lighthearted, but meaning ceremony and Jay delivered exactly that. Jay is such a laid back, chilled out guy but remains so professional. Everyone thought he was one of our mates – it was just perfect! Cannot recommend Noosa Style Ceremonies highly enough.
Jay is without a doubt, THE BEST wedding celebrant we’ve ever experienced! Relaxed, genuine, laid-back and professional, Jay absolutely made our ceremony perfect and every single guest commented afterwards that it was the best ceremony they’ve ever witnessed. The ceremony was personalised and felt like “us” and was exactly how we had imagined.0 Thank you Jay for playing such an important role in our wedding day and for making it so special.
Jay was, without a doubt, the BEST wedding celebrant! We could not have imagined a more perfect ceremony, thanks to Jay. He was the perfect balance of calm, engaging, sentimental and funny. All of our guests have commented that he was unlike (and better) any other celebrant they had seen! We had a perfect day and it wouldn’t have been the same without Jay involved!
Thank you Jay for a freakishly perfect ceremony. Without a doubt, the perfect celebrant for our day, our relationship and our guests. Jay was charming, charismatic and welcoming when running our ceremony for us. So many of our guests have approached me saying “what a guy”. We could not have asked for anything more perfect. Thank you for exceeding our already raving expectations and making the crowd laugh, cry and celebrate with us.
