I'd love to help you create a beautiful ceremony, just the way you want it!

Congratulations.... if you are starting to plan your special day!

I love meeting new couples and enjoy helping them with their plans. Your wedding ceremony can be as complex or as simple as you like. I'm always happy to follow your wishes and create a personalised ceremony, just for you. I love to include children in blended family ceremonies, and I enjoy helping with cultural and traditional inclusions.

I perform weddings, renewals, commitments & civil partnerships ceremonies, and baby namings. I'm happy to conduct ceremonies all over the Gold Coast, the Hinterlands, Brisbane and Northern NSW. I love beach weddings! I'm lucky enough to do a lot of weddings on the Beautiful South Stradbroke Island, and have a boat (and Jet Ski as backup!) to get me to a booked venue, or any secluded spot there!

I believe that a marriage is a public declaration of a couples private dream.... and I would love to help you make yours a truly memorable occasion! Please feel free to call, or email me if you have questions or would like more information. Or, if you would like to make an appointment to meet, this can be arranged at a time to suit you both.

Congratulations again, and all the best with your planning!

Questions and Answers

How do I do the paperwork to change my name after the wedding?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

As your celebrant I will give you the form that you will need if you wish to to apply to Birth Death and Marriages for a 'Registered Copy' of your Marriage Certificate.  If this form is posted in with my paperwork after the ceremony your registerted Certificate will arrive a week or two after the wedding. You then take this certificate with you when you go to change your name at the bank, driving licence dept. or passport office etc.

Do you have a microphone and music system we can use at our wedding?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

Yes I have a cordless music system and cordless microphone.  My system takes your chosen music from a Blue Tooth device or a memory stick. I'm happy to help with your music choices and setting it all up.

can we have a rehearsal before the wedding?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

I always like to do a rehearsal a few days before the wedding if possible, but this is of course up to you.  If a full rehearsal is not possible due to distance, we can run through on the phone or on a video call.  Happy to fit in with whatever you prefer.

We want just an easy going ceremony, with our little children beside us, is this possible?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

I love including children in ceremonies!!  I have conducted many ceremonies with babes in arms, little toddles and older children.  I've had teenaged sons walking their mums in, and numerous flower girls taking on special roles with the rings, or helping with sand ceremonies.  I like to just hear what you are wanting and craft a personalised ceremony script to suit you.....  and take it from there, often making necessary changes as we go along with the littlies!!

Who can we have as our witnesses?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

You will need 2 wittnesses. They must both be over 18 and able to speak and understand English. They can be anyone you like!  I often chat to couples and ask them who's in their wedding party, and who else they may have wanted to include.  It's sometimes a nice idea to choose 2 people outside of the wedding party....  spread the love a bit further so to speak!!  Asking the 2 mums can be a nice touch too.

Janet was so lovely and is so warm. She got her own boat to the island where we got married. She came to meet us as we had our young baby. The music was all organised and she also presented us with a booklet with our vows and certificate, She did everything that we asked!

Janet performed a beautiful and personalized ceremony for us at a private beach wedding ceremony on the Gold Coast. Janet really cared about the type of ceremony we wanted and helped us every step of the way - both my husband and I highly recommend Janet, Paradise Marriages.
