Brisbane Marriage Celebrant Jo-Ellen Moynihan specialises in authentic and romantic ceremonies with flair. You'll love Jo-Ellen's warmth and sincerity as she guides you through the process of creating your wedding celebration. With a reassuring approach, Jo-Ellen will weave your favourite anecdotes, in-jokes, and readings into a spoken tapestry that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

To me, the celebration of your marriage is a privilege to be part of and is highly respected by me. However I believe it shouldn't feel awkward or "clunky" but experienced by you as a celebration with joy, love, ease and a fantastic sense of peace.

I love the adventure that unravels when I start working with couples to bring their wedding day dreams into fruition, it's my dream job.

I live in Brisbane however I’m often on the road somewhere between my home town, the Gold Coast, Northern NSW, Sunshine Coast, the Bay Islands and the outback countryside.

From my experience, when hearts are open to the authenticity of what is present in the love that you have for each other, what rises naturally is a depth, a warmth and a realness that saturates the moment in a beautiful truth that touches everyone present.

I look forward to walking alongside you to create this experience for you together.

Jo-Ellen is the most wonderful celebrant we could have ever wished for! She has such a beautifully caring, friendly, positive and calming manner. She made our day so very special and we have the happiest memories with her. The entire process from registering for marriage, marriage certificate, vows and order of the ceremony was guided by Jo-Ellen and she was always so helpful and supportive. We highly recommend her!!!

Nat and Andy, thank-you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute joy for me from the get go. Watching little Foxie walk down the aisle in her flower girl dress was so very special and made my heart sing. I felt so privileged to marry you. Thank-you!!

Jo-Ellen was amazing! I didn’t realise organising a Marriage Celebrant would be so easy and stress free. We wanted a very low key, casual ceremony, and Jo-Ellen made that happen for us. She had templates of vows and poems for us and family to choose from and use if we didn’t want to write our own, which was so helpful for us as we had a 6 months old at the time so this made it all super easy! She even colour coordinated her outfit with the wedding so the photos of the day look fabulous! Thanks Jo-Ellen! Xx

Jo-Ellen made our wedding the most special day of our lives. Weeks and months leading in, Jo-Ellen communicated and worked behind the scenes to make us feel comfortable and had every aspect covered. Her gentle and calm nature ensured everything ran smoothly. The comfort and genuine care from the start of our day l, right through to the I do really took away all our stress and worries. We could not have asked for more from Jo-Ellen.

Jo-Ellen was so lovely to work with. She made us feel comfortable from the very first meeting, handled all the paperwork and helped us create a perfect ceremony suited to us. Our day was everything we could have hoped for and more.

Jo-Ellen recently officiated our Brisbane wedding and we absolutely loved working with her! Jo-Ellen made the process fun, exciting and tailored to us. She gave lots of suggestions for how we could incorporate our friends and family into the ceremony which we really appreciated. It was always so easy to communicate with Jo-Ellen. We especially appreciated the face to face meetings and wedding rehearsal that she went out of her way to accommodate. Thank you Jo-Ellen for being apart of our special day!
