Melbourne's original hip celebrant. Showbiz chops and heart. Equal parts laughter and tears. And a great suit wardrobe.

I started doing weddings 15 years ago, and I’m still learning and still loving it. I’ll never get sick of it because I’m too fascinated by the human condition. And I get too much of a buzz from the love energy on the day. I was the first hip celebrant in town. The first one to inject life into wedding ceremonies. I got the stiffs to move over.

I do weddings in a way that’s fun and serious. It's all about the balance. The right mix of gravitas and entertainment. Your ceremony should be a highlight of the day. Not something to be endured before your party starts. It’s my job to launch your party.

And when your guests have been entertained and when they’ve been made patently aware of why they’re at your wedding your party cannot fail. And your guests have been invited to your wedding to celebrate your relationship, your love for each other and the fact that you couldn’t be more serious about what you’re doing.

I’m also a working musician, an MC and a radio broadcaster. I’ve paid my showbiz dues and I understand entertaining in a way that only experience can teach. I know how to put on a show but I also understand the importance of making it all about the couple I’m marrying. It’s all about you. I’m a good listener. You need to be in this business.

And I have a very smart selection of vintage suits.

Coordinating our ceremony with JVG has been the most relaxed part of our wedding experience! Such a professional and expert in his field. We are grateful that after postponing our first wedding date due to covid we were able to find a new date to still have him apart of our day. He’s been a breeze to work with and we would do it all over again!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your support and working with us to create the best day of our lives. We loved every minute of it! Thank you for helping us create personalised touches, an amazing day, and truly unforgettable memories. You are such an amazing celebrant and made our day so relaxed with funny stories, laughter and lots of smiles. I was not nervous at all, in fact I could do it all over again. You captured everything that was "us" and I truly believe you set the stage for what the rest of the day was going to be- fun, relaxed and a celebration! We received endless compliments about you and the ceremony usually followed by the question "where in the world did you find your celebrant!?". Everyone thought you were such a character and I think a lot of the older generation were jealous of your outfit. A lot of people said it was the best ceremony they have ever been to, they weren't bored and we had the best celebrant they have ever seen! We can not thank you enough.

Jon Von Goes is brilliant. He suited our small intimate wedding perfectly with his humour and off the cuff presentation style.
