Jade is truly one above the rest - she created the most incredible, perfect ceremony for us that ran without a hitch. In the weeks/days prior, Jade kept in touch with us, helped us with anything we needed and made the process so unbelievably easy. When the day arrived, she had everything and everyone organised, calm and content. Jade told our story perfectly and we couldn't have asked for anything or anyone better to marry us. Jade, your personality and nature are so easygoing, and it is obvious that you love what you do. Thank you so much; Paul and I will always be the first to recommend you to anyone wanting to tie the knot.

Where do we start, Jade, you were amazing from start to finish. From the moment we met with you, we knew you were going to be our celebrant. We loved how you had so many ideas and let us pick and choose what we wanted and you made everything seemless on the day. Your idea of doing a sand ceremony was fabulous, and we love the end result of ours. We can't thank you enough for being our celebrant. You went above and beyond for us. And we recommend you to everyone who is getting married. Much love to you.

Jade was fantastic and was a great choice to be our celebrant. We knew after our first meeting with Jade she was the perfect fit. Our wedding was a surprise and very non-traditional, but Jade welcomed our ideas and was very easy to work with. Our ceremony was beautiful and very tailored to us. Everything was easy, and Jade answered all questions no matter how big or small they were. Highly recommend 10/10!!!

Jade was our amazing celebrant and MC for our wedding on Jan 23. We hummed and arred about having a professional MC but it was our best decision as all our friends and family got to enjoy our day and not have to keep checking the time. Jade created a timeline that worked with our venue and photographer and was on the game all day and night. It was the best day ever, and we couldn't have had such a smooth event without her.

Jade was our wedding celebrant, and I am so glad to have found her because I couldn't have hoped for anyone better to work with for our big day. Right from our first meeting, she was kind, helpful and open to everything we had in mind for our ceremony. We emailed regularly; this communication was wonderful because she answered all of my questions, no matter how small. We got together several times to talk about all the details and this filled me with confidence that she wanted the day to be absolutely perfect for us. We chose to include a hand-fasting as part of our ceremony and Jade offered her advice from her experience with this & made it into a really magical moment for the day, and exactly what we wanted. The ceremony she wrote for us were incredible, and she allowed us to edit them to fit us exactly, so because of this team effort, they were beautiful. I wholeheartedly recommend Jade as your wedding celebrant, especially if you want a relaxed wedding day.

~ Hannah + Jesse Alding



I'd highly recommend Jade. Not only is she friendly and kind natured she is understanding to your needs and will make sure everything for your special day goes as wonderfully as you plan. Thanks to Jade, our wedding was a success, and she worded everything beautifully and made it personal to how we wanted it. She helped me with my vows and added in thanks to my family from us too. It brung tears to my mother in laws eyes and caused a chain reaction. Just beautiful. A memory forever remembered. Thanks, Jade, much appreciated.

~ April + Jamie McMurtrie

Jade made the lead up to our wedding and the wedding day a breeze!

With awesome communication from day one to the lead up and even checking in on the day. She was a huge key to our day being our celebrant and telling our love story and we wouldn't have wanted anyone else. She did a perfect job even if the skies above weren't playing ball. We can't recommend her enough! 

~ Peter + Kimberly Aspden



Jade was our celebrant. She is such a beautiful spirit with a heart of gold! Jade brought so much light and love to our ceremony, which she had tailored to match us perfectly. She kept in contact often, especially closer to the big day. Jade helped us with everything, including tips and ideas for whatever we needed. Our day was made brighter having Jade up there with us. We cannot thank you enough for making it all a breeze for us, and cannot recommend you highly enough!

~ Brooke + Luke Ratcliffe



We can speak highly about the service provided by Jade. From the start to the wedding day she explained everything thoroughly and reminded us of what was needed as we went along. It was a pleasure to have her as our celebrant on our special day. She made us feel comfortable in the lead-up and on our wedding day. The ceremony was beautiful and exactly the way we wanted it. She was very friendly and professional the whole way through; she gave us room to make the ceremony special and unique to us. Thank you so much Jade.

~ Bryan and Tuula McNully



Jade was so incredible to work with, right from the start! With my partner and I not knowing the first thing when it came to planning a wedding, Jade was so helpful with the vows, ceremony writing, as well as general guidance and recommendations along the way! We knew she was truly committed to making our day personal and special for us. She was so genuine and professional, we cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so much Jade!

~ Emma + Antz Jamison



Jade was our amazing celebrant. She made the ceremony run so smoothly. She was easy to work with, great communication and professional. The rehearsal the day before the wedding left me feeling relaxed and prepared. Jade has a lovely caring and bubbly nature. She worked with us to create a ceremony unique and special to us. Jade goes over and above to ensure your ceremony goes to plan. We would highly recommend!
