WHAT QUALITIES DO YOU WANT IN A CELEBRANT? BALD WITH GLASSES, ENTHUSIASTIC, HELPFUL, RELIABLE, ORGANISED, PROFESSIONAL AND WAS A WEDDING DJ/ MC FOR 25 YEARS?

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

Most couples I work with want a marriage ceremony that is not too long, relaxed, a few laughs and memorable. But still thoughtful and respectful without making it boring for the guests, so let me help you with that!

My presentation style can be best described as a friendly professional ceremony, confident, engaging and enthusiastic with a few laughs, a few sobby bits and NO FUSS!

Well, maybe a little fuss. 

How would you describe your ceremony?

I'd love to hear what your needs and expectations are so let's get together for a chat, and I will explain how I can help you in detail.

If you are still reading this, you have seen you read or heard something about me you like, and you have some questions. So get in touch and let's talk.

No need to be nervous, I am friendly, house trained and rarely bite. 

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

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How much do you charge?

My fee for a  wedding ceremony ranges in price depending on many factors, for the record they range from $550  for a  very basic registry style wedding to $ 1100. But it’s typically between $850 and $950 for ceremonies within Melbourne and surrounding suburbs.  

Do you include a rehersal for that price?

Rehearsals are important not just so we can rehearse, It's another chance for us to spend time together and get to know each other. Also, I get to meet some of the bridal party and maybe parents. By having a rehearsal it will make you and your bridal party be much more relaxed on the day. So yes rehearsals are included in my fee, except for the basic registry style ceremony. 

What's included in your fee?

You probably have many questions to ask; and, I would welcome the opportunity to explain the full process and the costs for my services when we meet. If you are open to exploring the possibility’s, want to know how I can help you, and the creative process behind making your ceremony one that your guests will talk about happily, for years to come, then we should get together for a chat.

We are enjoying reflecting on such a lovely day that went so smoothly thanks to you John Beck, our celebrant. Thank you for marrying us and giving our ceremony such a personal touch including our love storey, our guests and we loved the ceremony.

I loved it too! I saw you on TV a few weeks ago I laughed and yelled out, "I know her " lol. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

John Beck was awesome from the moment that we met him. He took the time to really go through the whole wedding process with us while also sending us tips and tricks to really personalise everything. He gave us options on how we could have our ceremony flow, but also allowed us to choose our own options if we preferred. Funny, light hearted & eager. We only ever sat down with one celebrant and that was all we ever needed. Thank you John Beck for making our ceremony us!

Congrats on organising a very entertaining wedding, I enjoyed being part of it. Thanks for everything you have done for me! Including this review and sending me photos and that video, I loved watching the ceremony again.

John was an absolute delight to have throughout the entire wedding planning and wedding day. His passion and dedication for what he does shows through in the service he provides. Nothing was ever too difficult and we loved his approach when we wanted to do things a bit differently! (even if that meant spending multiple hours helping my husband with his vows) We cannot thank John enough for everything he helped us with and how much fun he was to have around. We'e just annoyed that we can't think of another event he'll need to be a part of until we renew our vows!

Hi Matilda! It was always fun hanging with you two, nothing was ever a chore. Thank you for making my job enjoyable. Are you parents yet? ( to a human)

John was absolutely amazing at our wedding. He made our ceremony so memorable. His relaxed vibe and witty jokes had the crowd laughing and applauding. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. He is also super organised and thorough. He was constantly keeping in touch with us, setting up meetings and helping us out with tips for the day. Both my partner and I were worried that our story wasn’t that interesting or didn’t have much to go off but John somehow managed to make some of our ‘boring adventures’ sound great and really engage the crowd. We would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a celebrant. He is Amazing. Thankyou for everything John Jake & Anna

So lucky to have someone like John to be our Celebrent! John we so easy to get along with, funny and really kind. He did such an amazing job and made the marriage process stress free and so easy. Thanks so much John!

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you Simone. It was a pleasure being part of your wedding.

28 Dec 2019

John helped make our day a really personalised and special day full of laughter and stories. He is extremely experienced and organised. We couldn't recommend John highly enough. On the lead up to the wedding we enjoyed our meetings together where he made us feel very comfortable and took the time to get to know us and our story. John kept us in check on the lead up through his online platform and also took care of all the other tasks on the day, such as music, sound equipment, etc to ensure everything ran smoothly.

Thank you Caitlin! I appreciate you talking the time to leave me a review, it means a lot to me.

20 Sep 2019

Nick and I would like to thank John for creating an unforgettable ceremony for us and being so wonderful. We have had countless compliments from our guests on how funny, relaxed and joyful he was. When we first met John, we knew he was "the one", he made the whole process so easy and was so much fun and giving with his time. He sent us lots of tips and tricks throughout the lead up to our day and on our day, gave us exactly what we hoped for, laughs, a few tears and a ceremony that was "us". Thank you John

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you so much Rebecca and Nick! It was wonderful getting to know you and telling your love story.

31 Aug 2019

We knew immediately when we met John the first time that he was our celebrant. He made the whole journey fun and was incredibly thorough. Where I would read on websites, brides throwing out the question "What do I ask my celebrant?" I could easily respond nothing, as John gave every bit of information we could possibly need, in fact he was the one asking us the questions we hadn't thought of :) Now to the ceremony. John was loved by all of our guests as well as us, for his witty and beautiful take on our own love story. When anyone talks about our wedding, the first thing they say is "Your celebrant was awesome, we loved the ceremony!" So in saying this, when coming to the difficult decision of choosing a celebrant, make it easy, meet John and you will be set!

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you, Jacqui, I do try my best to give my couples all the information they could possibly need so it means a lot for you to say that!

25 Aug 2019

Cannot reccomend John enough, he made our ceromony so special and personal. He spent the time to listen to our love story and made an epic retelling of it for our ceromony which everyone loved. Many compliments from heaps of guests, he listened to what we wanted for a ceromony and delivered perfectly!

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Epic is right! It was quite the tale. Thanks Danielle, I appreciate that you took the time to leave a review for me!

It was our pleasure to have John as a mentor and a trusted pilot through the process of marriage. He travelled to our place to catch up with us & asked questions which made us think & reflect on our journey as a couple (which was excellent!). I’m so glad we ended up with a pro who understands human emotions as well as NOIM paperwork. Numerous guests have marvelled at what an excellent story teller John is & those closer to us noted how John has very cleverly picked up little details in our story & weaved it all together. We would definitely highly recommend John to anyone looking for a marriage celebrant! Thanks again John!!

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Thanks Winnie, so glad you enjoyed the process and outcome of our working together to nail your ceremony.

14 Apr 2019

Amazing! Great service! very thorough and helpful. John Beck gave us great direction on how to have best wedding ceremony. It was a really easy process and we highly recommend.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you Kelly! I greatly appreciate your feedback.

30 Mar 2019

We couldn't have been happier with John as our celebrant, his professionalism and humour were exactly what we were looking for and he certainly delivered on the day. John takes the time to clearly walk you through the marriage process, helps with emails and links so you can ensure you work out your vows in your own style, and the overall ceremony is about you, the couple. We had so many laughs during the ceremony, and John created the fun and engaging atmosphere through his storytelling of our relationship. It was without doubt my favourite part of the day. I would do it all over again and wouldn't change a thing.

1 Mar 2019

John was amazing from start to finish. He took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from the ceremony, and then delivered a truly enjoyable experience on the day. Our guests all loved John and said our ceremony was by far one of the most enjoyable of weddings they've been to.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Hi Cindy, it was so much fun getting to know you both. I'm glad everyone enjoyed your ceremony coz I did.

29 Sep 2018

We have tried writing a review for John many times; however, it is not as easy as one would think. John is truly wonderful, warm, caring and much more. We know this as we got to know John during the time he spent to get to know us in order to be able to perform an unforgettably perfect wedding ceremony for Ron and I. And that is exactly what John delivered. Our guests are still commenting on our beautiful, romantic, elegant but yet witty and fresh ceremony. John stirred up all the beautiful emotions that a wedding can bring. Everyone smiled, everyone laughed, everyone cried for happiness. Ron and I wanted our guests to be involved in the ceremony and John performed a beautiful Unity Candle Ceremony as well as a lovely Warming Of The Rings Ceremony. John explained the meaning of both which made them very special for our guests. He is extremely well organised, very knowledgeable and his professionalism is second to none. I will not say any more as I do not want to spoil the surprise and John had tiny little surprises for us along the way; may I had, very pleasant useful surprises. There is only one sad part to have John Beck as your celebrant: When at the end of the ceremony John wishes you all the best and he leaves, you will most likely feel sad as we did. Ron and I felt as if we had just lost a very dear friend. If we could give John 6 stars we would. We will always remember John as a very dear friend, after all, he knows us well.

Oh wow, that is a long review. I hope people read it as it indeed shows why I love this job. Btw I do have a soft spot for you two so be prepared for the odd phone call or even visit as long as I get some Almond Biscuits. Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this, love you!

We hired John Beck as our wedding celebrant. We are sooo pleased we did. John is highly efficient and keeps you on track to your big day but is also mindful of what each couple wants and needs. He had us all laughing during the ceremony and really got to know us during the whole process. Our ceremony was personal, funny & romantic, all due to John. Everyone said it was the best wedding ceremony they had been too in a long time. Do yourself a favour and check out John for your wedding, you will not be disappointed.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

I don't think I'll ever forget your wedding day, you know why. I'm happy that I was able to make you laugh at the ceremony. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
