We highly recommend Jacqueline Nairn, who was both our wedding celebrant and MC.

She helped create the most gorgeous wedding for us, her attention to detail was second to none, she was personal, welcoming, warm and genuine, well researched and organised. She guided us on all aspects of the wedding – from the vows to the lighting to the music – and all her recommendations were perfect. She set a beautiful tone for our special day, and delighted all the guests. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Jaq was the first celebrant we met with when we started organising our wedding. From the first zoom meeting we had we felt an instant connection and couldn’t wait to work with her to design our dream ceremony. The big day was postponed due to Covid but thankfully Jaq was free on our new date.

I’d always thought the ceremony would be one of the hardest parts to plan but Jaq made it super easy. When the big day finally arrived the ceremony was perfect. Jaq was the best celebrant ever! We also received many compliments from on our guests on how much they enjoyed our ceremony, so together with Jaq we nailed it.

Highly recommend working with Jaq to create your perfect ceremony, she is amazing!

Thank you so, so much for the most magical ceremony. We loved the energy, soul and warmth you brought to our day. You spoke beautifully, put us at ease, and had thought of all the small details including tissues for the many tears I shed. We had the most perfect day and wouldn’t change a thing.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for a well organised, professional yet relaxed ceremony, personalised to capture our story. You were so easy to talk to and your help and advice was invaluable in creating our perfect wedding ceremony.

From our first meeting through to the wedding day itself your support and guidance put us at ease and enabled us to enjoy our magical day.

Thank you so much, Jacquie for the most incredible ceremony!  We could not have asked for a more perfect day.

From our first meeting, you made everything so easy.  I had a list of questions that I didn’t even need to ask because you were so thorough in telling us everything we needed to know. You were always available to answer emails from us, and always happy to offer suggestions and advice when we were unsure in anything.

Together, we created the most beautiful, memorable ceremony that was filled with so many thoughtful and personal touches that we couldn’t have done without your guidance and encouragement.  You were genuinely excited and invested in our ceremony and that showed in the way that you conducted the day.  You shared in our laughter and delivered our emotional moments in the most touching way.  You even had a tissue at the ready and seamlessly held it out to me when my new husband brought me to (happy) tears!

Thank you for being so approachable, supportive and professional as our celebrant.  We want to take this opportunity to recommend you to anyone looking for their perfect ceremony.  They will get just that with you! Thank you, with love

Jaq, we cannot thank you enough for the time, energy and support you put into making our ceremony a truly memorable one. You went above and beyond and we appreciate all the dedication and help you invested into our ceremony.

Our ceremony flowed nicely and we felt so comfortable with you as our celebrant both on the day and the journey leading up to our big day. Your warm, friendly nature put us both at ease and you melted away any nerves we had.

If you need a celebrant for your wedding, I highly recommend Jaq. She is reliable, efficient and lovely to work with. Thanks again for a fantastic ceremony!

Jaq is absolutely amazing to work with!! Everyone has said to us how great our ceremony was. As well as cursing us for all the tears they all shed, hahaha.

Jono and I want to thank you from the absolute bottom of our hearts for the way you carried out our ceremony last weekend. It was truly a blessing to have you share our love story the way you did. It was magical. We honestly felt so safe and calm with you the whole time which made the ceremony one of my favourite parts of the day (even though it was what we were both the most nervous about!)

We had so many compliments from our family and friends on how beautiful our ceremony was. Aunt Cecily also wanted a copy of the entire ceremony as she couldn’t stop talking about how perfect it was, and how beautifully you carried the words through from beginning to end.

Know that you were such a special part of this day for us.

Much love from both of us.

Jaq was outstanding! She was so willing to make our wedding exactly as we wanted. Helped us write the perfect ceremony, helped with our vows and even snuck in some last minute changes to our sand ceremony the night before the wedding! (this was a surprise from my kids and husband which I learnt about during the ceremony).

Plus she looked absolutely stunning in all our photos!

Jacqueline thank you so much for making our ceremony truly magical. Our wedding day was perfect and we both feel fortunate that we could have you there as our Celebrant.

You are an absolute pleasure to work with. We found that your communication was flawless, which made making plans for the ceremony stress free, your help and suggestions were great!

I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a celebrant, and I can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special.

We were planning an engagement party and at short notice decided to marry at the party. With the short notice we thought it was a long shot but contacted Jacquie and she was available. From the first phone call, we knew she was the right person to marry us.

Jacquie guided and encouraged us through the planning and ultimately we had a ceremony that was very ‘us’. Our wedding was very casual but Jacquie ensured our ceremony was heartfelt and something we will cherish always.

Thanks Jacquie, we were so lucky to have found you.

Our wedding was so much fun and we are so thankful for your involvement in our day.

From the first meeting we had we both felt really comfortable with you. We appreciated how you were able to tailor the ceremony to us and our style with your pick and mix options for the wording.

And of course we loved how you were able to work in our engagement story into the ceremony. The ceremony went so smoothly and we felt it was very reflective of us. Thank you so much Jacquie!

Jacquie, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful ceremony for us!

Your presence and energy was both calming and powerful. Everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was. You did such a great job at working our personality into it and making it feel deeply intimate and personal to us.

Your guidance right from the beginning, giving us many different options and helping us create the perfect ceremony that felt like us was so incredible. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding. Thank you.

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all your support and guidance as our celebrant.

Thank you for all the time you put into helping us with our vows, how open you were to our requests, but most of all for the freedom you gave us in designing a ceremony that was very personal to us. Thank you for completely exceeding our expectations as our celebrant.  

We couldn’t have asked for a more fun, relaxed, yet highly professional celebrant.

A match made in Heaven! Jacquie was the perfect match for us as a celebrant. Our intimate ceremony of 13 people was made even more special by Jacquie’s warm and welcoming approach.

Jacquie was very responsive and communicated well in the lead up to the wedding. We met using a video chat during an evening, which was very accommodating around our busy work schedules. The guidance we received with our vows and ceremony readings helped make our day both memorable and unique.

If you’re looking for a celebrant that listens to what you want, but adds her own personal touch, then Jacquie is for you!

Hosana and I would like to thank you for the beautiful ceremony!! You tailor made it to us and our love. We definitely recommend your services to anyone getting married. You made everything so easy leading up to the ceremony. You even came up with things that we hadn’t thought of. You were reliable, efficient and the communication was great!

We loved your words and the way you led the ceremony. Everyone commented on how lovely the ceremony was. 

Also thank you for helping with the sound system beforehand even though you weren’t supposed to and for staying behind to take a few photos with everyone. You are amazing! ​ Thank you for making our special day, that much more memorable.
