Well, first things first. Congratulations on your engagement!
My name is Jacki and I'm a fun and personable, Brisbane based authorised marriage celebrant who provides an alternative to the traditional ceremonies from yesteryear.
In a past life I was a Trivia Host all around Brisbane and the Gold Coast, so I'm a bit of an old hat when it comes to public speaking and using a mic. I am also a total food enthusiast who has been having a long love affair with blue cheese, hot cinnamon donuts, espresso martinis and mint choc-chip ice cream and just quietly, we're not breaking up anytime soon.
I am a Camilla kaftan-obsessed, travel and die-hard reality TV addict who is vivacious, charismatic, organised, witty, supportive, compassionate and a bloody good cook. I also have a passion for writing, which you know, comes in handy when you're a marriage celebrant!
Weddings are so much fun which is why I think your ceremony should be heartfelt, relaxed, personal, definitely not awkward and one that sets the tone for the rest of your night with your friends and family. I pride myself on my writing skills and telling your story in a way that is fun, authentic and heartwarming. I am willing to accept the challenge of changing people’s views that the ceremony is boring AF. I offer a contemporary, relaxed, fun and professional approach and I will create a ceremony that is uniquely you.
I am in full support of LGBTQI couples. Because love is love and the world has bigger problems than girls who kiss girls and boys who kiss boys.
If you think I may be the Celebrant for you, I would love to hear from you.
We can catch up for a coffee or a champers and if you have a dog, can you please bring them too!
I am honoured to live and work on the ancestral lands of the Turrbal people.
I acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.
