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)

Could not more highly recommend John, he was professional and made the process very simple and was a lot of fun to work with before and on the day. Definitely a celebrant everyone should consider!

We had the privilege of meeting and working with John for our Wedding in February. Through all the cancelations we went through, John was so supportive and helped us get through it. When the day came, he was a key part in making this day special. He delivered exactly what we were looking for. Laughter, romance and intimacy. All our guests mentioned how lovely he was. Can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks John

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

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.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

Thank you Kelly! I greatly appreciate your feedback.

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.

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.

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.

We can't thank John enough for his professionalism and guidance throughout the entire process which made our wedding planning far less stressful than it already is.The whole process with John was seamless!John gave us expert advise and extra thought which we did not even think about.He gave us exactly what we wanted and our ceremony could not be more perfect

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

I'll always remember you for so many reasons, one is that you were in such a hurry to get the party started and how much detail you went into planning the wedding. Thank you for the review, I'm happy that you are happy.

John was fantastic for us on the day! We told John stories about our relationship and he is full such good surprises. John is funny, relaxed and complimented our wedding day completely. We met with John a few times and also did a rehearsal the week before with everyone so we all knew what we were doing.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Hi Sarah! I think of you a lot! Probably because I have your photo on my website ;-) Yours was the best beach wedding I've done. Thanks for taking the time to write this review.

The best celebrant EVER!! Only books one a week - not running off to other weddings on your special day! I wanted a male celebrant for our wedding.. and John was warm and welcoming from our first meeting, loved my husbands comical approach to things and we had a ball coming up with our perfect ceremony together and many laughs along the way. Professional, dedicated to make each ceremony unique and brings out the best in people and engages them.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Hello Hayley! Thanks for that awesome review I can only imagine how much better it would have been if I remembered the tennis racquet for the ceremony. I enjoyed working with you and Dean and yes it was fun coming up with ideas to make your ceremony enjoyable for all.

John is awesome, I love John! He was very professional. We went through 10 celebrants before we found John. He always dressed professionally and his knowledge impressed us. He made it very easy and broke down the work over the weeks ahead for us. He helped with song choice. He made it very simple and it was really refreshing to not even think if I didn't want to! I got more than my value for the money spent

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

No, you're awesome! the two of you were so much fun to work with. I'll always remember you for so many reasons. And thanks for referring me to your friends already got a booking from your wedding, thank you!

10/5! He made our wedding day! Everyone was very happy with him. He made our wedding very special and unique. He is witty, dresses well and is very funny. John is everything that you would want from a celebrant! We drafted our wedding together and he helped everything flow on the day.

John was absolutely brilliant. From the first time we met through until the day our marriage was official he was professional, well mannered and easy to talk to. He took the time to get to know us and made our service very personalised (funny yet relaxed). Would definitely recommend A+++++

We would recommend John to any couple who want to ensure their guests are going to have a great time at their wedding. John just went above and beyond both at our wedding and into the lead up to the day. He really is exceptional at what he does.

John Beck Marriage Celebrant  

Hi Jackie! Thank you! I'm so glad you had a great time that's kinda the idea, right? If you have a great time chances are everyone else will as well. Thanks for taking the tome to write a review.
