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!



I live on the beautiful Gold Coast but I'm originally from England. I love the outdoors and especially the beaches and sea. I love to swim, love getting out on our boat, love the jet skis! I try to swim a lot and have just started running again after many lazy years!! I love to travel too and am usually planning my next trip......

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Is it OK to ask a celebrant to wear a costume at our wedding?

Hello! I've read some responses to celebrants dressing in a matching style etc. Is it rude to ask if they wouldn't mind wearing a costume? I've read somewhere a couple got married by batman and then the obvious Elvis option.. I like the idea of an iconic character and think it would be something to remember but wouldn't want to offend anyone or make it a bad experience. TIA

Paradise Marriages - Janet

Hi,  Yes of course it's ok!!  I have dressed up several times for my couples, and loved it.  I have also respected couples requests  to dress in certain colours, and formal / not so formal styles.  Its all up to you, as the marrying couple...  I would however maybe ask the Celebrant when you first meet them.  Maybe even just to ask if it's something they may be comfortable with, if you do decide to dress things up. 


Confusion around roles of matron of honour, maid of honor and who can be a witness with the best man

I have a Maid of Honor who is unmarried and a Matron of Honor who is married. I want my Matron to be a witness along with the Best Man. Even though she is married, can I have her as the Maid instead?

Paradise Marriages - Janet

Most marriaged today are less formal and allow for couples to choose who ever they want to act as their witnesses... as long as they are over the age of 18 and able to hear, and understand the legal ceremony, they can be your witness. 

A Maton of Honour was traditionally the married bridal assistant, and the Miad the unmarried support person.   Just choose whoever you want to be your witness, and enjoy your special day!!

How many weddings do you book in per day?

Are celebrants usually doing one per day? or two on some days? How is this possible?! haha

Paradise Marriages - Janet

Hi there....  I usually do just one on any given day, but have sometimes done 2 (Valentines Day and New Years Eve are busy days!!)  I like to allow a 4 to 5 hour space between ceremonies to allow ample time between for changing, winding down and getting there.
