Congratulations on your engagement and your forthcoming wedding in Cairns.

Congratulations on your engagement and your upcoming wedding in Cairns at one of our iconic venues or beaches.
I am a Cairns marriage celebrant and a supporter of marriage equality, living and working in beautiful Far North Queensland. I offer you a huge range of choice in the content and performance ofyour ceremony, be it your dream wedding, commitment ceremony, a vow renewal after many years of happy marriage, or a naming ceremony for your newborn child. The vision I have for NQCelebrations is to fulfil and absolutely exceed all your expectations regarding the performance of your ceremony.  The only inclusions I insist upon are the legal ones required by law - the rest is up to you. One of my recent wonderful brides referred to me as her "go to celebrant" - I can be that for you. Please call me to arrange a meeting.

Questions and Answers

What do you charge?


My fee for a wedding is $500.00. Travel within approximately an hour drive from Cairns is included in this price.  If your wedding is on one of the islands, my fee is $550.00 plus the ferry ticket is also to be paid (approx. $55.00 for locals at the moment). If your wedding is at Paronella Park, Bramston Beach or Mission Beach, or on the Tablelands, my fee is $550.00. Any other travel costs (eg plane, ferry, accommodation if applicable) will be an additional expense. 


In Queensland you can marry at the Courthouse for a fee ranging from $344 to $588, depending on the day and time. My fee is based on this with the added consideration that I come to your venue, you have a wide choice of ceremonies, and my fee doesn’t change according to day and time.


Fees for other ceremonies are:


·         Renewal of Vows $400.00

·         Commitment Ceremonies $400.00

·         Naming Ceremonies $350.00


Are there any extra costs?


Your official marriage certificate will cost an extra $48.20 payable directly to Births, Deaths and Marriages. If you are marrying on one of the beautiful beaches or gardens, you will also need a permit from Council (approximately $80).

How can we pay you?


You will be issued with a Statement of Fees, and a receipt once your payment has been received into my account. You can pay either through Direct Deposit or cash – either is acceptable. I require a non-refundable booking fee of at least $100.00 paid within 2 weeks of my acceptance of the Notice of Intended Marriage (this will give you a confirmed booking and the amount is included in the quoted price and is not extra) with the balance paid in full at least 2 weeks before the wedding.

What happens if we have to cancel after booking you?


The booking fee of at least $100.00 is non-refundable, so if you cancel you will not be refunded this amount as I have held the date for you. Refund of any other amounts paid will be at my discretion.

What are your qualifications?


I am a Commonwealth registered marriage celebrant having completed my training in 2011. I am also a Justice of the Peace (Qual) in Queensland, and a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants.

Janine was very professional and welcoming from the day we began communicating. She met us face to face and introduced herself and her services very clearly and in a friendly manner. She kept regular contact and was able to meet us anywhere when needed.

It was our pleasure to have you as our celebrant on our special day. You were very warm, caring and helpful, whilst very professional in what you do. You made the whole ceremony go with such ease and all our family members commented on how lovely you were. We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. Thank you for making our special day even more special by being there and performing our ceremony.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us. You made our day so much less stressful having all of the little things worked out for us. We were able to create a ceremony that suited our relaxed and fun personalities and all of our guests felt very comfortable and said it was so lovely. You took care of all of the paperwork and legalities and reminded us when we needed to have things done which was awesome. Thankyou again for being there for us on on special day! Kathleen and Chris
