What you'll love about working with Marriage Celebrant Above and Beyond for your Adelaide wedding: 

  • A warm and professional approach. Jan is sought after as a celebrant for her supportive and empathetic approach, as well as her meticulous attention to detail. Jan will listen attentively to your as you tell her your unique love story, allowing her to create a bespoke ceremony script just for you. 
  • A personalised ceremony. Your ceremony by Jan will be filled with romantic sentiments, funny anecdotes (if that's your style), as well as any rituals or quotes that are meaningful to you. Best still, you'll get to keep a copy of your ceremony script, beautifully presented on parchment paper, as a wedding keepsake from Jan. 
  • Backed by experience. With her impressive list of happy clients, Jan has the knowledge and experience to guide you through the wedding preparation process. Jan will assist you with vow writing, timeline planning, and the legalities of getting married. 

Music amplifies the happiness of the couple newlywed status and gets everyone in the mood to celebrate.
I now offer my very own Mr. Music to present your music during the reception. Not everyone can afford a D.J. or a Professional Band.
Kenny (aka my hubby) presents your fav music selection to make your reception even more personal and you and your guests will love it. This is cost effective in your budget.
This brings festive vibe and keeps the party going.

"We would highly recommend Jan as a marriage celebrant. From the very first meeting, she made us both feel at ease. We both felt very comfortable with Jan and that the ceremony would be individual to our own personalities. Jan said that she would tell our story in the ceremony, which was exactly what happened. Jan worked with us every step of the way and was really easy to deal with making the whole process a lot less stressful. It was a really beautiful ceremony, and our guests thought so too." — Elizabeth + Craig



I enjoy meeting couples for the first time and walking them through the process to their eventual Wedding Day. My experience and personality ensure my couples feel confident and relaxed during their marriage ceremony. My script (a draft is check and perused by the couple) is written around each couple's unique story and the legal ceremony presented according to S.A. law. ALL the legal certificates and documents are processed by me and presented to the BDM with the day. Jan x

I will be discussing this with you in the time leading up to the day, and on the day will be guiding you gently. I always speak to my Bride the minute she arrives at the venue, just to calm any last minute nerves.

No, you do not. There are a few alternatives to this, which I can talk through with you. For example, as a bit of fun, if you would like, all your guests can “give you away” This is always very sweet. The person who walks you down the aisle can give you away at that time. A few alternatives to this question, which I can discuss with you. Anything and everything is possible!

Music is the magic part of any ceremony.  Yes, I have a quality sound system and microphone for the audio during your ceremony.

I ask my couples to choose four tracks of music and all of these are timed and played by my Mr. Music (aka my Hubby) 

One track for the bride and bridal party to enter.

Two and Three tracks while signing marriage register.

Fourth tracks for when I intro you to your Family and Friends as Mr. & Mrs., Mr. & Mr. and Mrs. & Mrs........  xxxx

If you a track of music which is your "Love Song" try and incorporate it  in with these other choices.

Have fun with your music choices!

When you have accepted my quote I will send you an Invoice.  A booking fee is required within 24 hours which will then lock in your wedding date and secure it for you.  Please note here, that I rarely do two weddings in the one day, so I am all yours for that day. I will not be rushing off to the next wedding, I remain entirely focused on you.

The Invoice will have payment details on it and usually, half deposit then remaining half two weeks before your big day.

Also please note..... If you wish to organise with me a payment plan, that is easy done.  

Please remember, that a Civil Celebrant is a Legally qualified person to officiate for you.  There is a lot of legal paper work to do behind the scenes.  

This is entirely up to you. Your considerations might be - how many guests are invited? 

                                                                                                     am I feeling confident?

                                                                                                     how many brides maids / groomsman/ page boy, and flower girls do we have?

                                                                                                     do we wish to pay a little extra for a rehearsal?

Personally, I aim to have my couples feeling confident and relaxed by the time the week of the wedding comes around.

I ring you a few nights before the day and run through absolutely everything with you. 

Until, I hear you both say, that you are feeling 'good' only then do I feel happy.   I have your back !

My wife and i want to thank Jan, the best celebrant in town for being our celebrant at our wedding. Her prepared speech, planning (including my secret performance) were so well communicated with us throughout the whole process. She made everything easier and smoother. She is a smooth criminal as MJ would say. Her husband Kenny also came out to play the background music for us during the ceremony, signing and dinner which made the whole evening vibe just how we wanted! we did invite them to out dinner as we thought tat the least we could do to have both Jan and Kenny be a part of the wedding, not as a job, but as an event/ Cant say we'll choose her again as we hope (!?) but we do recommend Jan and Kenny for anyone who is ready to get married and be blessed by them.

Jan was amazing! We didn't have a wedding planner so we were doing everything ourselves and Jan went above and beyond her role and helped us with everything!! She was my rock and helped keep me sane on the day and in the lead-up to! She even gave us a laminated copy of our vows and a USB with her speech and everything on it! She was so sweet and cute! can not thank her enough!

Thank you Aisha and Kenny. I 'fell in Love' with the pair of you from the beginning. Wonderful humour, intelligent and loving couple. You have the world at your feet. Jan XXXX

November 2022

Jan was a wonderful choice of celebrant for us. Damien and I had told her our plan for a surprise wedding for the day after our 11th anniversary, and Jan was incredibly supportive. She took the time to get to know us both and made sure to include the details of our history in our marriage ceremony. Jan and her husband were both very professional. Thank you so much for everything Jan, we loved having you there on the night with us!

Erin D.

Jan & Ken (Mr audio DJ ) made the day perfect with their attention to detail and perfect service. A gentle hand and word in what can be a very stressful time. Jan was always calm and created the perfect ceremony-- the highest of recommendations

Example bride’s father speech?

Hi, I'm looking for speech ideas for a short speech for my father? I am the bride. What kind of things should he include, thank, say, etc.

Marriage Celebrant Above and Beyond

Most guests at your ceremony will know your family dynamics.  Keep it KISS   ( Keep it Sweet and Simpl)  If your Mum and your Dad are Married then I would direct your speech to them both.  If the speech is just for Dad - just be yourself.  Thank him for the years he has been there for you, the support and the love.  Thank him for his help presenting your wedding reception and the way (if this is the case) he/they have welcomed your groom into the family. Perhaps comment on looking forward to the future as husband and wife with Mum and Dad.  

How to include our mums in our wedding

Hi there, would love some different ideas of how we can each include our mums at our wedding, maybe something non-traditional but meaningful. Thank you

Marriage Celebrant Above and Beyond

I think that if your two Mother's are at your ceremony, why not have them as your legal witnesses (dont have one without the other though).

Also, perhaps your Mum's could be your ring bearers - they would love that I feel sure.

One more suggestion - if you are having a Wedding Reading, have your Mum's reading half each.

Have fun  Jan 


Advice for having your dog in your ceremony

Would love some advice! We def want to include our dog in our wedding ceremony! We want him as the ring bearer. Are they are any things to avoid or prepare for in advance? Thanks!

Marriage Celebrant Above and Beyond

Your dog is such a beautiful addition to the ceremony.  Afterall they are part of the family. 

 Make sure your fur baby, is looked after by someone who they know well. If a groomsman is well known to them, well and good.

Some other guest who the dog knows well can stand up with your attendants.

Best of all ! have your dog as your ring bearer with a little collar holding the rings.  Fabulous !!
