Civil Marriage Celebrant & JP

Introduction

My love of meeting people and celebrating life’s special occasions led me to becoming a Marriage Celebrant. With my professional commitment and relaxed approach I bring confidence and a high standard of presentation to your ceremony.

Living on the Central Coast allows me easy access to weddings in the Hunter Valley/Newcastle region as well as all areas of Sydney. Accommodating all outdoor venues, I supply a portable PA system and if required, decorated table for signing of the register. I offer a wide variety of ceremonies from which to choose and access to all the resources you may require when making your selections. My experience and guidance will ensure we meet all legal requirements and that all documentation is lodged correctly.

It gives me much joy and satisfaction marrying a couple knowing that I have been an integral part of their journey.

Testimonials

"Jim made the lead up to our special day so stress free and reassuring. He is very warm and caring and suited our personalities and the way we wanted our day to run perfectly. He has a great sense of humour but is also very sentimental at the same time, he was always easy to talk to and bounce different ideas off and he was able to give us many useful tips to help in the planning and organisation of our ceremony. Jim is one of a kind and we are glad to have found him as he will now be in our lives forever when other celebrations come around whether it be renewing our vows or services for our future children."

Jim married my wife Alana & I in Feb 2014, Jim was fantastic and a real professional.He came over the house to introduce himself when we were looking at celebrants and we knew straight away that Jim was the celebrant for us. He made us feel at ease throughout the whole process, which was a bit of a daunting time. We didn't really have an idea as to what a celebrant should be, but after meeting Jim & having him as our celebrant we now know it's someone that can ease your nerves on the big day, guide you in the right direction when forgetting an easy line, showing the upmost professionalism but at the same time being someone you want to have a beer with afterwards! Highly recommended!
Cheers Sam and Alana.

Jim! What can I say?
I feel like it was absolute fate that I was lucky enough to find you on the internet, your warm smile and friendly nature immediately assured me that we had made the right choice in celebrant.
You were very informative and helpful throughout the entire way and made the whole process a breeze.
I can't stress how special it was having a celebrant who literally made the ceremony feel like one of our own family members was marrying us!
The compliments and requests for your number have been endless...... and it was so lovely seeing you only a few months later at a friend's naming day (another one who found you at our wedding)
Jim from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for making our day what it was, and quite clearly have no hesitation whatsoever in HIGHLY recommending you to every engaged couple out there!!

Kind Regards,
Courtney and Brendan Sanders

Dear Jim
Just want to say a big THANK YOU for a wonderful ceremony. You made our wedding day so special and the ceremony was small, intimate and everything we wanted it to be and more. The afternoon was magnificent and we had such a relaxed wedding day thanks to you.
We are both very happy that you were our celebrant – we could not have asked for anything more. You provided support for us throughout all the planning right from the word go.
We received so much positive feedback about the wording that we chose together. Many mentioned that it seemed you were there in heart, spirit and mind on the day and really offered meaning to the words throughout the readings. We will definitely be recommending you to our colleagues, friends and family. With you being there it felt as though you were more like family to us than our Celebrant!
Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us.

Jim was everything that Rory and I wanted in a celebrant and more. As soon as we met him, we knew that he was the man that we both wanted to be part of our special day. Jim made our wedding ceremony about the occasion and not the legal requirements that need to be covered in each service. He made it fun, enjoyable and kept everyone engaged while we exchanged vows and said “I do”.
We honestly couldn't have imagined it any other way and would recommend him to everyone that asks (except our friends as he is our special Jim).
Thank you Jim for providing us the support, guidance and amazing celebrant services. You made our wedding that much more special.

Samantha and Rory.
