When we met up with Jen we easily decided on the spot that we wanted her to be our celebrant. Jen was very knowledgeable & had lots of great ideas & great resources to gain some inspiration. Leading up to our wedding I was very anxious with what information to include our ceremony & there were many emails back and forth that Jen was not only quick to respond to, but eased my anxiety & discussed anything I was concerned with. Jen was very thorough with our when we met for our rehearsal the day before our wedding & was able to give us some helpful advice on how to include our how family in our wedding. All of our guest said how much they enjoyed Jens ceremony & jokes she threw in there relating to us & how much fun it was. Thank you so much Jen!

The moment my now husband and I met Jen, at a coffee shop in Queenscliff we both knew we had made the right decision. Jen turned up in her volunteer coastguard uniform looking a million dollars and full of adventure and life!! She was perfect for us! Jen made the whole process so seamless and was so accommodating the whole time. We had family turn up extremely last minute from the US and Jen took all of this in her stride, adapting things so everything would flow so smoothly on the day! And it did, people laughed and cried and everyone loved her! The care and consideration Jen took in making the most important part of our day special was second to none. I couldn’t recommend a more beautiful lady for the the most special of days! A million Thankyou’s Jen!!!!

Oh Sarah - thanks for such kind words! It was my absolute pleasure to marry you and meet your friends and family, and it was a really special day to remember! I'm so glad you found me. Wishing you happiness and laughter always x

From the initial interaction with Jen; she was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. She invited us down to her house to meet face to face and hear about our journey as a couple. Jen took the time to get to know us and once we completed our questionnaire, we had a draft copy of the ceremony for review. Because of her thoroughness, it was essentially what we envisioned. She prepared and delivered a heart felt ceremony - which we had many compliments on. While looking around for a marriage celebrant, Jen was at the top end of our budget. Upon meeting her, we had a great feeling about her and decided this part of our wedding was something we didn't want to skimp on. Were so happy we made the choice to go with Jen. She is a true professional, kept open lines of communication and was always available via email. Thank you for playing such a special role in our wedding.

This is an amazing review, Alana, thanks so much for taking the time to submit it! It was such a pleasure to help you on your special day.

My (now!) husband and I contacted Jen when at short notice we had some issues with our previously booked celebrant. Jen went above and beyond to help us sort out our legal paperwork and create a wonderful and unique ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Jen had a wealth of resources and information that she provided to us which we found extremely helpful. In short Jen was our saviour!! Jen's communication with us was exceptional and we felt so confident and reassured in her hands. Jen was so well prepared and articulate on the day and we had so many positive comments from our friends and family about the ceremony! We loved sharing this extremely special day with Jen and are forever grateful to her for turning around our situation into a day that we will remember forever! Lola and Sam

Jen was exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant. From our very first meeting, she soothed our nerves and answered all our silly questions with passion and confidence. She was a guiding light during our wedding rehearsal and a beacon of calm during our ceremony. Highly recommended.

My partner and I were extremely happy with our wedding ceremony and the preparation that Jen put into it . We met Jen months in advance and she was extremely accommodating. She took the time to get to know us and our individual relationship in order to prepare a ceremony that was unique to us. She was always readily available via email/phone and ensured we were happy with every element of her draft prior to the day.

Jen Lawrie-Smith Marriage Celebrant  

So glad you were happy with everything, Elise! Your wedding was absolutely gorgeous... thanks for choosing me to be part of it! Wishing you both much happiness xx

Jen was everything you could ever want from a celebrant. We wanted a simple ceremony but not all the mushy stuff, and Jen was able to accommodate this but still make it an engaging experience for us, our family and our guests. Nothing was too much trouble and we couldn't be more happier with our ceremony and Jen's efforts both on the day and leading up to it. Thanks again Jen xx

Danielle, thanks so much for your kind words. Your wedding was a dream come true for you and I was happy to be part of it! May married life be everything you both hope for!! xx

Jen was the perfect celebrant for our marriage. We wanted a hand fasting and a very relaxed service. Jen really listened to us, the wording and underlying emotion reflected perfectly our personalities and she looked so glamorous and professional. We intend to use her services when we hold our daughters naming ceremony.

Jen Lawrie-Smith Marriage Celebrant  

Hi Tara, Your wedding was wonderful! (A man in a kilt - wow!) Thank-you for these lovely words - I loved being your celebrant, and I'll look forward to being part of your little "Dolly's" naming when the time comes! Naming the babies of my couples is a huge compliment! xx
