'the best part of my wedding experience was having Wendy be part of it'
Email Celebrant


It would be an honour and joy to contribute to your wedding day!

I am a vibrant easy going woman with a passion for the celebrations of life.  I’ve been a professional opera singer, actor, writer and theatre director for over 40 years – talents useful for ensuring that you and your guests feel at ease; the ceremony has the atmosphere and content that you desire (plus the required legal bits of course).  My attention to detail is unsurpassed.

Together we’ll create a ceremony that suits your desires – brief or lengthy, formal or casual, traditional or unique.

I speak fluent (but rusty) French, basic German and Italian.

Whatever the occasion you can trust me to listen to you and ensure that this milestone in your life is joyous, individual and professional.

I’m also qualified to design and conduct funerals, renewal of vows, commitment ceremonies, name givings and other rites of passage.

All ceremonies deserve to be as unique as the people involved.


Where do I begin....I cannot possible say enough to express how wonderful and amazing Wendy Grose was as our Wedding Celebrant. From the moment I met her, her kind, warm and caring demeanour was infectious.In the lead up to our wedding, Wendy was more than just a celebrant, she became a friend. Wendy was always so thoughtful and made everything so simple for us. Prior to our wedding, Wendy even asked what our colour scheme was so she could ensure what she wore did not clash. To add to this she was so warm and welcoming to all our guests. Everyone adored Wendy. On the wedding day I remember feeling quite nervous walking down the isle, however, one look at Wendy's reassuring smile and I was at ease. I even remember mentioning at one stage that I was really hungry after the ceremony and she went out of her way to get me something to eat. Others informed me that before I arrived Wendy made sure everything was running smoothly. Wendy even included cultural aspects that we wanted as part of the ceremony. Wendy was just so accommodating and simply lovely, that we even invited her to our wedding reception. I can truly say that the best part of my wedding experience was having Wendy be a part of it. If you are looking for a wedding celebrant who is always smiling and kind, Wendy is the one! I cannot say thank you enough xxx

Thank you so much for making our day such a memorable one. It was a delight to have you as our celebrant and a pleasure to meet Robert. Both our mums speak very highly of you and you are now famous in other parts of the world :-)

We attach some pictures from the wedding. They turned out to be fabulous! The setting and the weather are close to perfect! We got lucky. A & S

We were all so delighted that Kate and Ryan chose you to conduct their service. You were fantastic and exactly what they wanted. We have had many great feedbacks from our guests and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again for making the service so special.
Here is what I wrote to the venue:
“Wendy Grose, the Civil Celebrant from Jan Juc was everything we could have asked for and more. Everyone commented on her style, bubbly personality and ability to draw the guests into the wedding ceremony. Kate and Ryan were very impressed with her ability to listen and harness in on what they wanted and she delivered perfectly. We wanted to recommend her to you for referrals to other bridal couples who want someone with special warmth and understanding of their needs.” Sandra (mother of bride)

Dearest Wendy,
I just read through the draft in my office and am sitting here in tears! It reads beautifully and captures what we want to portray exceptionally well. It’s the EXACT kind of ceremony that we want, and the weaving of the love and ocean together...the energy.. the ceremony of sands (love that ritual!)... I feel so very emotional and in love. Thank you, we have clearly found the right celebrant for our wedding! Just thrilled to have you.

Thanks so much for Saturday - we were over the moon to have you involved in our wedding! Matthieu
