OUTSTANDING! PERFECT ceremonies. But reviews are the best way of finding out about me. Please click my profile to check me out and see how I have helped to create an amazing day for all my couples.

Unique, fun and intimate weddings are my specialty.

 

But what am I like as a person?  And what are you looking for in a celebrant?

 

The most authentic and truthful way of finding out is to read the many reviews about me, right here on Easy Weddings.

 

To help out, here is a snapshot of what couples have said. 

 

  • So easy to talk too, friendly, down to earth, kind and inclusive
  • Has a great sense of humour
  • Incredibly professional, organised and resourceful
  • Nothing was too much trouble, everything was so easy and stress free
  • Incorporated our ideas and ensured everything was just what we wanted
  • The package of information and book of wording choices provided made the process so much easier
  • Our first meeting was very relaxed and obligation free
  • The cost was all inclusive, no hidden extras and VERY REASONABLE
  • Jan is AMAZING at what she does. She certainly created a perfect day for us and a life time of great memories

 

Now, what do you want your ceremony to be like?

 

  • Most couples want a marriage ceremony that is not too long, relaxed, memorable, contains a few laughs and is certainly not boring, but    at the same time being thoughtful and respectful.
  • Couples who are becoming a blended family often wish to recognise their children.
  • Some couples wish to include their precious furry members of the family or include symbolic cultural traditions.
  • And some couples are not sure what they want or where to start.

 

This is where I come in.

 

As a full time celebrant, I’m here to provide unlimited assistance, expert knowledge and many great ideas to guide you through the planning process in creating the magic for your special day and to celebrate the beginning of your new life together.

It’s not only what a celebrant does, it’s how they do it that makes the difference.

 

So what I will provide for you at no extra cost?

 

  •  A folder of information to help understand the process, legalities and plan your ceremony
  • A book containing range of ideas and wording options for each section of the ceremony, including symbolic ceremonies
  • Ideas on how to include children or your precious furry members of the family
  • Complete freedom to choose how and what you wish to include to create a truly unique ceremony
  • Over 1200 music tracks (or you can provide your own)
  • PA system with an independent operator
  • Plus heaps of other extras which can be found on my website. 

 

 

My main objectives:

 

  • To discover what’s important to you as a couple. Understand what makes you tick, what you like and don’t like.
  • Enable you to relax and enjoy the journey, knowing your ceremony is in reliable hands and will run smoothly.

 

My promise:

 

  • To never tell you what you should or shouldn’t include in your ceremony (except for the legal bits of course) – after all, it’s your day so it should be exactly what you want.
  • To create and expertly deliver a unique, sincere, personal ceremony (with some fun and precious moments) that you and your guests will be talking about in years to come.

 

If you are still reading this, you have seen, read or heard something about me that you like and you probably have some questions.

 

So what’s next?  

 

1.    Get in touch a.s.a.p to make sure I’m available on your day.

 

2.    We can then have a chat so you can get your first glimpse of who I am. I can also find out a little more detail and give you a firm costing.

 

3.    We can set up a time to meet in person or on Zoom (no obligation of course!) so you can check me out and feel comfortable that I am the right fit for yourselves and your special day.

Questions and Answers

What legal documents do we need to have?

Jan Mason

I will organise all the legal paper work for you, including sumitting it to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The first document that needs to be completed is the Notice of Intended Marriage. This must be signed, witnessed and in my pocession at least one month before the ceremony can take place.

Do you provide a public address system?

Jan Mason

Yes. I always use my PA system to ensure everyone can hear your ceremony. I also bring an assistant who will play all the music, adjust volumes and turn microphones on and off so that I am free to concentrate on delivering your ceremony without interruption. My microphone is a small discrete lapel mic so I am not holding a big chunky one in front of my face. Your photos will look a lot better!

Do you provide a signing table?

Jan Mason

Yes. I can bring a table with a white linen table cloth as well as two chairs to use for signing all the certificates.

Can my children or furry friends be included in the ceremony?

Jan Mason

Absolutely!  Children can be included as a Flower Girl/Page Boy, Ring Bearer, or if old enough, they can read a poem or walk the bride down the aisle. They can also take part in symbolic ceremonies such as The Rose Petal Ceremony or be included in a Blended Family Ceremony. Animals are also welcome to be part of the ceremony (just make sure it’s OK with the venue). For example, the rings can be tied to your dogs collar or the bride can ride in on a horse. It’s a great spectacle!

Do you provide wording options for the ceremony?

Jan Mason

Yes. I provide a 150 page resource book containing wording options for all components of the ceremony. You are free to choose alternatives from this or use it as inspiration to write you own wording. eg:  Your Vows.  I will also write your own personalised ceremony, according to your wishes and ideas.

Jan is absolutely wonderful, an amazing celebrant. The whole process from the initial meeting right through to the ceremony was a breeze which put both Olivia and I at ease. We knew from the moment we met Jan that she was the right fit for our day. Jan is well organised, is very focused and her attention to detail is impeccable. Jan always went above and beyond for us, and we always knew what was happening and was consistently kept in the loop. Jan has a wonderful sense of humour, the wedding rehearsal and Ceremony we're both very memorable and Jan is a true professional. It has been an absolute pleasure to have Jan as our celebrant, We highly recommend Jan to anyone, she is amazing. Thank You again, Gareth & Olivia.

Jan Mason  

Olivia and Gareth, what an amazing journey it was to be honoured with the role of being your celebrant and what fun we had during the planning, the rehearsal and on the day. We were blessed with fantastic weather which was truly fitting for such a wonderful couple.

20 Mar 2018

Fantastic! Jan couldn't have made it more of an easy process. She is both professional as well as warm friendly. We met before the day and it was so easy to organise and found a time that was convenient to speak about what we wanted to do. She guided us through what the day would be and we also had a rehearsal. She was great with communication prior to the day and gave us so many different options. Highly recommend!

Jan Mason  

Tanya and Tony, it was such a pleasure to work with you and thank you for always responding to my emails so promptly. The honouring of your little girl in the ceremony made the whole day such a lovely family affair. I certainly enjoyed being a part of it. Thank you.

24 Feb 2017

Jan is an exceptional celebrant. Her professionalism was impeccible and her attitude to us was the same. She is kind, genuine and her sense of humour is great. She made us feel so comfortable with all of the aspects of our ceremony leading up to the day and then on the day she was absolutely wonderful. I would recommend Jan because she is calm, grounded and centred and nothing is a problem for her. I would also recommend her because she is unique and her storytelling is fantastic. She really understood us and our story and told it beautifully. Everything about our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it and more. It was just so beautiful and unforgettable. Jan always makes you feel you are the most important person and never did she try to be entertaining and take away from us in any way (although she was made the ceremony fun and interesting and engaging). She respected that the day was about us and she did everything to make us feel special. We so highly recommend Jan

Jan Mason  

Sandy and Simon, thank you so much for your wonderful words. Every ceremony is a partnership with the couple and myself, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with such engaging people as yourselves. The poems that you chose, along with the Rose Ceremony were a genuine reflection of you as a couple. It gave me great pleasure to a part of your special day.

20 Mar 2021

The 1st time I spoke with Jan on the phone I knew she was the one. I have never felt so comfortable like I did with Jan. She was absolutely amazing, would always answer phone calls, or call back and always responds to emails. Highly recommend. Thank you Jan

20 Feb 2021

Jan was the most amazing celebrant we could've ever wished for. As soon as we met Jan we felt that she was the right person for our wedding journey. Jan made everything feel so easy and stress free, she was so helpful from the start to finish. We had to make the decision to post pone our wedding due to Covid and if it wasn't for Jan going above and beyond for us then we would of been at a loss. We can't thank Jan enough for her efforts in helping us achieve such a beautifully personalized wedding ceremony. it was our dream come true. Thank you Jan.

9 Jan 2021

Where do I start? From the very get-go, Jan was unerringly helpful and knowledgeable, so much so that it felt like she was always a step ahead of us! Michelle and I had planned to marry over Christmas while she was visiting after we were separated for 9 months due to covid-19. . We didn't know that 30 day's is notice required by BD&M for the NOIM and had to request a shortening period - while the BD&M office was closed . Michelle had to return home overseas on the 10th and all seemed lost at times but Jan persisted with enquiring on our behalf and guiding us as to what to do next. She wed us on 9 Jan in a simple but meaningful private ceremony and we couldn't have asked for more. Heartfelt and with depth. Thanks Jan, I'd give you 6 stars if possible.

9 Jan 2021

Me and partner couldn't thank Jan enough for helping us with our wedding and making it such an amazing ceremony. She helped us throughout the whole ceremony and making it exactly how we imagined it would be. Thank you!

21 Mar 2020

Jan shared her wealth of knowledge with us. She cared about our wedding like it was her own, making sure everything was perfect. We loved her attitude and style, she will always hold a special memory in our hearts. Would 100% recommend her if you want straightforward assistance with your wedding and someone who is happy to do things exactly how you want them.

Jan Mason  

Sheridan and Bart, it was great fun working with you and getting to know exactly what you wanted to include in your ceremony. Working together, your ceremony included all the elements you had always wished to have and therefore a very unique personalised ceremony was created. It was also my pleasure to provide the music required for your ceremony after the unfortunate last minute cancellation you had to endure. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wonderful day.

5 Mar 2020

Jan was such a beautiful celebrant and so easy to deal with. As soon as we met Jan we instantly warmed to her kind and professional manner. She had answers to all our questions, provided us with resources (to help with our vows) and was so detailed in her approach, that we knew we were in good hands! :) Her ongoing communication and organised nature made the process so much easier and made for a perfect ceremony. Thanks so much Jan! :)

Jan Mason  

Renata and Tomas, It's always a pleasure when I meet a couple who are open to ideas and very organised. Therefore working with you was fabulous and I totally enjoyed being your celebrant. Both your mother's part in the Unity Candle ceremony was very touching and your whole day was perfect.

2 Feb 2020

Jan made the whole process of organizing a wedding remotely just that much easier. She was helpful, organised, and quick to respond to our questions and give us a gentle prompt when we needed it. She kept the rehearsal going smoothly despite heat and a large bridal party, and on the day even had a tissue on hand when the groom started crying. We were so impressed, thank you Jan

4 Jan 2020

Jan was amazing. We travelled from QLD for our wedding and therefore had to organise most of the details remotely. Jan was so accommodating and helpful! We ended up having the service of our dreams! We couldn’t believe that Jan travelled 3 hours into Country Victoria to make our dream come true! Thank you so much Jan!

Jan Mason  

Carrie and Ben, it was an amazing privilege to officiate at your wedding. The travelling was of no consequence when I had the pleasure of witnessing two people so deeply in love and who have such a wonderful supportive family. All the best in the future.

22 Jun 2019

Jan is wonderful, bringing to life a unique and beautiful wedding ceremony that we could have only imagined. We thank her and highly recommend her services!

Jan Mason  

Bridgitte and Daniel, it was such an honour to work with you both. You were open, honest and organised! Thank you so much for sending me the lovely photos of the three of us. I really appreciated it.

9 Jun 2019

Jan was really helpful with all information and had given us lots of information, went through everything step by steps and with guidance. Really professional and with all equipment. Had a great time.

Jan Mason  

Ve Qinn and Sam, your day was really beautiful and I was very honoured to be able to play a part in it. Thank you for being open to ideas and working with me so effortlessly.

23 Nov 2018

Jan was really good and she met us the day before to go through everything. She had given us a lot of material for our day. On the day the weather was not great and the audio was not great, but it was nothing to do with Jan. The ceremony itself was perfect and she was entertaining the guests and she did really well.

Jan Mason  

Charmaine and Manny, although the weather was against us the setting was still beautiful. It was a pleasure to witness the engagement of your guests and I'm so glad they enjoyed the ceremony, as well as yourselves.

19 May 2018

“Thank You” Jan for our beautiful wedding ceremony and all the happiness & joy that filled the room. Thank you for handling all the details and logistics of the ceremony with such good care and guidance. Our warmest thanks for being a very special part of our wedding day celebration.

Jan Mason  

Deb and John, your ceremony was something really special, so filled with love and it was fabulous to see you having such a wonderful time. It was great working with you to ensure everything went off smoothly, especially the Sand Ceremony and the release of the doves. Thank you for being such a sincere and fun couple to work with.
