Jay Bingle is a self-confessed love story addict, a weakness he turned into a strength by starting his own celebrant business, Married by Jay. Travelling all over Brisbane to deliver heartfelt bespoke ceremonies, Jay is a vibrant and creative professional who crafts ceremonies full of fun, tears, laughter, and romance. Jay is well-known for his immaculate presentation and abundant enthusiasm.

Some celebrants make an impression on you from the moment you meet them, and Jay Bingle from Married by Jay is one of those few. Cutting a memorable figure in Cuban boots, timber bowties, and three-piece suits, Jay is a quirky and fun-loving celebrant who enjoys bringing the laughter and the tears to each ceremony he crafts.

“What a celebrant! He just went above and beyond for us and was so kind and helpful! alot of things changed due to covid and he was so accommodating and reassuring. He made our ceremony so personal and fun that it didn't seem like we had hired a celebrant but rather a friend.” Jaymee B

Based in Brisbane, your journey with Jay begins with drinks and snacks at a lounge-room picnic, chatting about your relationship and the journey you’ve undertaken together. A series of thoughtful questions gives Jay all the information he needs to write a ceremony that is personal and authentic; the more details, the more creative he can be!

Married by Jay has several wedding packages to choose from, ranging from legals-only and elopements to elaborate experiences. His top-tier package, The Ducks Nuts, includes vow writing support, unlimited support, and all the legal documentation taken care of on your behalf. He has also created an online portal that contains information about all of the legal elements, couples questionnaires, and insider tips and tricks to make sure your wedding day runs smoothly.

What you’ll love about Married by Jay for your wedding:

  • Jay’s quirky and fun-loving personality. A true professional, Jay still brings a rich sense of humour and enthusiasm to his service. From his timber or feather bowties to his iconic three-piece suits, Jay is a true entertainer and will ensure your guests are laughing and crying in equal measure during your ceremony.
  • He’s there for every step. From your first meeting to the day he meets you at the end of the aisle, Jay will be your biggest supporter. On the wedding day, he arrives early to ensure you’re both feeling confident, meet and greet the guests, and set up his equipment.

“At first we only needed a celebrant but we were so impressed and trusting of Jay that we asked him if could be our MC as well! We couldn’t be happier with Jays service leading up to the wedding and on the day. Jay was so supportive throughout the entire process especially with how Covid-19 impacted the wedding. Jay was by our side no matter what plans had changed.” Nadi Han

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do you take care of all of the legal elements?

Married By Jay

Great question and lets be honest after it is all said and done there is one more important thing to do.. legally change your name! I take care of it all and guide you on government time frames too for things like passports and Drivers licences.

On the day you recieve a hand written display marriage certificate too. 

Do you have a sound system?

Married By Jay

I do I travel with the BOSE S1. This speaker and microphone set up gives me amazing clear sound and access to bluetooth for all the music you may need and videographers love it, because they can plug strait in and record direct fro the mic. 

We don't want the ceremony read from an i-pad, is that ok?

Married By Jay

I believe ipads and tech have a place and are so 2019 in wedding ceremonies. I print my ceremonies into childrens books, never covering the story up so you can read the book to all of the little people later on. If you dont want a book thats ok, I have a customer made book I have everything in.

How much notice do we need to give to get married?

Married By Jay

Your Notice of Intended marriage must be submitted to me with min. 31 days notice and maximum 18 months. 

However as we have all learnt sometimes we need it asap and we have ways of trying to get a fast track from the attorney general

On the day. What's your process?

Married By Jay

Well after meditation and a massage :-) I wish, no I love to turn up early, to check on you both, meet and greet, ensure the space is perfect and everything is in place. If someone is waiting down the front with me I like to do a pep talk, have the crowd involved in selfies and then wait. Nothing beats those nervous moments of silence. 

After I hang around to help your photographer etc and eventually unless Im staying on as MC I disappear into the afternoon.

What can we say, booking ‘Married by Jay’ was one of the best wedding preparation decisions David & I made. Having Jay as not only our celebrant but also our Master of Ceremonies was a brilliant idea. From our first meeting, we felt very relaxed with Jay. By the second meeting, we were drinking champagne together. On our wedding day, he was like a close friend. His organisational and communication skills were second to none throughout the three months leading up to our wedding day and on the day as Jay looked after everything. We were made to feel like he was only a phone call or email away if we had ANY questions or concerns. The special touches and ideas that he planned for us during the lead up to our special day were thoughtful and a stroke of genius.

Oh thank you both so much, I was so honoured to be able to not only officiate your love story, but be the one running the whole day for you and being the MC.

Married by Jay - couldn't ask for a better celebrant. For preparation, Jay guided us gently through the process, met us at convenient locations and made himself available for any questions. On the day, Jay was fun & kept us relaxed and seamlessly worked with the venue.

I can not describe how amazing the vibe was with your wedding, from the guests, your story, the girls and the colours in High church just worked plus we all looked pretty in pink. Thank you for giving me the honour in being your celebrant

Jay. What a celebrant! He just went above and beyond for us and was so kind and helpful! alot of things changed due to covid and he was so accommodating and reassuring. He made our ceremony so personal and fun that it didn't seem like we had hired a celebrant but rather a friend. the Jag was an amazing extra touch that just blew us away. loved getting photos in front of the car. 10000/10 would recommend!

Married By Jay  

I love what I do and I'm so glad that came through; everyone should feel like a friend was up the front with them, not a stranger and even the possum got involved in the tree :-)

27 Mar 2021

Jay really took the time to get to know us before the ceremony which turned out to be just perfect. Jay stayed on to MC our reception which was the best decision! He was a great fit for the entire evening and even got involved on the dance floor. Thank you Jay for EVERYTHING!

19 Mar 2021

Jay was absolutely phenomenal. We planned our wedding with 3 weeks to spare and he was so calm and collected from the moment we contacted him. He took the time to learn who we were as individuals, as well as a couple, and crafted our ceremony with all of those elements so beautifully. It was a perfect representation of "us". We had so much fun, not only on the day but going through the process with Jay and reliving all the moments of our love story, it was a very grounding experience reminding us of what we bought to each others lives and the commitment we were making by joining in marriage. I would highly recommend Jay.

Married By Jay  

Thank you so so much. I had so much fun creating your ceremony because you both gave me everything, all of the juicy stories that make your love story true to the two of you. xx J

13 Mar 2021

Jay was suggested as the ideal celebrant for us by the manager/owner of our reception venue. His approach to weddings is both fun and romantic, sophisticated yet relaxed, with a cheeky amount of gin thrown into the preparations. From start to finish, Jay was open to suggestions, made recommendations, encouraged us to have fun, and created a stress-free and family-friendly celebration. We cannot recommend Jay enough - he was a very special part of our wedding and will be perfect for any same-sex or opposite-sex wedding. Thanks so much Jay, for making the effort to personalise our special day and for making the day memorable and fun!

Married By Jay  

Guys, you have something amazing, the two of you were in the moment and so in love. I can still picture JR's face as he came down the aisle and his nerves just outside the doors. Amazing. xx J

Jay made the whole process very easy! He added personal touches to the ceremony and made it everything I dreamed of 😍best celebrant ever !!

Married By Jay  

Oh you are amazing, thank you so so much

21 Feb 2021

Jay was brilliant! He not only helped us prepare for our wedding ceremony but helped to calm our nerves and anxieties about our special day. We didn’t just get married by Jay, he engaged everyone in our love story.

Married By Jay  

Gents, honestly you had everything on point. From the suits to the vibe, look and feel it was the classiest wedding every and fitted the bond theme. One of my highlight weddings and that grand piano, open and belting out 007 wow.

18 Jan 2021

Jay!! From the first moment we found you and subsequently trawled you on FB , we knew you were our man for the job! Jay goes well above and beyond to make your special day and absolute dream!! His quirkiness and vibrancy makes the whole place light up! Jay's personal touch and attention to detail makes him the BEST celebrant! And with a speech written for 200, when there was only 2, is what makes Jay definitely standout! Jay is an absolute pleasure to be around, and have play an important part of your wedding.

Wow. Jay is amazing. He just made our day super special and made our love story brighter. Thank you so much for everything. Highly recommend!

7 Nov 2020

Jay knows how to make a ceremony! From the first time we met him we knew he was the one for us! Well organised, super prompt, fun, funny and just 10/10! We couldnt have asked for a better suited ceremony for us. He listened to us and what we wanted and we got exactly that but BETTER! The way he puts it all together is also really unique. Would recommend to all!

31 Oct 2020

Thanks Jay. Thank you for being amazing. You are such a wonderful person and just so genuine. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. You are exactly the true character from day one right through. We love it. Your so present on the day and even with Adam haha you manage to make everyone laugh and smile with your story about us. Our day was just so amazing the weather who cares can't control that. Our daughter adores you and that's saying something normally she's all shy with strangers. Your part of our family always and forever.

25 Oct 2020

Not only was Jay the most incredible celebrant (and at this point, friend) on the day, he spent months perfectly designing out unique and fun wedding. I cried, I laughed. 10/10 would do it all again with Jay as our celebrant and I recommend him to anyone who will listen!

17 Oct 2020

Jay is amazing! He's an incredible Celebrant! At first we only needed a celebrant but we were so impressed and trusting of Jay that we asked him if could be our MC as well! We couldn't be happier with Jays service leading up to the wedding and on the day. Jay was so supportive throughout the entire process especially with how Covid-19 impacted the wedding. Jay was by our side no matter what plans had changed. During the lead up to the wedding, Jay had amazing communication and honestly felt like a friend rather than a service. He made the process of writing our vows a lot simpler with so many tips and sentence starters he had. He really wanted to know us and share an accurate and heartfelt love story not just provide a generic story at the ceremony. The ceremony went so smoothly and efficiently. He was funny,

10 Oct 2020

Jay was absolutely amazing from the first time we met him, to the time he left our wedding. He has such a fun, unique way of delivering a ceremony, personalising every aspect. He is such a down too earth, funny and calming celebrant. We are so glad we went with Jay to marry us. He made our day so special. We will be recommending to all of our friends!
