"Jane was an absolutely amazing celebrant, and I would highly recommend her! We were originally going to have a scuba diving wedding as Jane is a diver, and she was happy to marry us underwater. Still, we had two years delay, so instead had a stand-up paddle board ceremony. Jane was really thoughtful and helpful with all of the planning in the lead-up. She had great ideas for how it would all come together. She helped us create a unique wedding that reflected who we were. She was friendly and lovely and made us feel comfortable with the whole process and all the decisions we needed to make." - Nikki E.

FAQ

You legally must have your NOIM back to your celebrant at least 1 month before your ceremony.   There are certain occasions when a "Shortening of Time" is required and that is when you are NOT able to give a month's notice for example due to health reasons & that will be assessed by the court and you would have to provide proof that you require "A Shortening of Time".

No, at the time of booking you will be asked for a booking fee 25% of your fee and then 1 month before your ceremony the balance is due.  There are other payment plans on request to help spread the cost, so you can secure me as your celebrant for your special day.

No, I provide a top-of-the-range, Bluetooth, wireless speaker, and mic.  I also have a backup Pro Bose S1, which is wireless and Bluetooth. No extra cost for you there!

As a celebrant, you are responsible for all the legal documents, if this is wrong you the couple have lots of issues later down the track with name changes, visas, passports etc.

I spend time completing and ensuring all the details you request are in your ceremony.

That we fun on time, so your other vendors are getting food out hot, and photos and music are on time.

I send questionnaires to you so I can create a beautiful original "Love Story" for you on the day.

I print your vows and your script to bring on the day.

I ensure I am there on time, 1 hour before, and liaise with all your other vendors so we work together.

I call your photographer to review the cues a few days before the ceremony.

I warm your guests up so we have a relaxed ceremony and they feel included and valued.

I coordinate the whole ceremony so it's fun, professional, and runs on time.

I assist your photographer to get the group & family photos, that's hard without the Mic!

I travel home and upload all your documents to Births, Deaths & Marriages

I include the FEE for your marriage certificate from Births, Deaths & Marriages and pay that on submission of your documents. 

I follow up to check everything was ok and that you received your Marriage Certificate.

And much more time spent on calls and meetings with you to ensure your day runs as you imagine it too.

On my questionnaire, I ask what your colour scheme is and I complement that, I do not wear floral or patterned outfits unless its fitting for the circumstances.

Depending on where you are in location to the (Mid-North Coast) there may be some small travel fees to cover the cost of fuel and time on the road.  Every ceremony is in a different location.  This will be transparent and discussed in our first conversation.

Yes, I have 2 professional wireless PA systems so there's no interference and they can easily connect so no words are missed and your guests hear everything.

I will be there with you for support,  no you don't need to use the mic.  I do most of the talking, so you can enjoy your "Love Story" and all you have to say are your legal vows.  I've got you!!!

I stay long enough to see you receive all your hugs and kisses, grab a quick pic with you both and help your photographer gather everyone for the photos then I scoot off home and upload all your documents and you enjoy the rest of your day!

Don't worry, I am there for you and I will have the tissues ready, we will just hold off, I will keep the guests occupied while we get you sorted and fix up that makeup and then we continue when you're ready.  It's all good, you most probably haven't done anything like this before its real and raw and beautiful and they are happy tears so were all good with that.  It's beautiful and brings emotion in, your allowed to cry!

Your usual name!  You have to sign the marriage certificate before you are considered legally married and eligible to change your name.  So no need to practice that new signature just yet!

So far, our experience with Jane Dawson has been incredible. She gave us ample time on the phone to ask all of our questions (trust me, there was a lot of them) and also gave us so many fun ideas that we feel were really genuine suggestions after getting to know us as a couple. I love that we had to fill out a survey and that she has been so prompt in getting back to us with every email. It feels like she is really there to help guide us through this process.

Jane was amazing. She was with us since we signed up for her to be our celebrant. She constantly kept in touch and made the ceremony so personal, heartfelt and special. I could not have wanted a better celebrant than Jane.

We were so happy we had Jane as our celebrant. She told our love story in a really meaningful and engaging way, with the perfect mixture of laughter and sentimentality. She is an engaging and confident public speaker and also impressively calm. Our wedding guests were impressed and so were we!

What tasks does a celebrant perform?

What are some of the things we could lean on our celebrant for, apart from the actual ceremony?

Jane Dawson Celebrancy

Your celebrant is your go-to for pretty much everything, including moral support leading up to and during the ceremony.  You should build a great connection with your celebrant as they are telling your "Love Story" they pretty much know you like a friend. 

If it rains I  run around and wipe the seats for your guests, play your music, checked your guests are ok, and informed your parents where they are sitting.  Kept your partner whos waiting for you calm, and supplied the tissues as you cry happy tears. 

I liaise with all your other vendors so we are all working together as a team, stepping aside while your very expensive photographer gets those beautiful shots of you both.

As your celebrant, I check your signing table and all the small details you told me you wanted are in place so when you walk down the aisle it's just how you imagined. 

I check all your documents and do all the Legal paperwork so you receive your marriage certificate in good time after your ceremony. 

It's your dream day and I will my best to ensure your day is awesome, as would any celebrant.

MC - I am an MC, on request, and for an additional fee I am able to offer you peace of mind that your day will run smoothly.

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

Jane Dawson Celebrancy

Your mum could walk you down the aisle with your dad.

You could ask her to hold your flowers when you reach the front.

Mum, could hold the rings or do a reading/poem.

It's lovely for your mum to walk down the aisle with your siblings, to make an entrance and make her feel special and included.
