Questions and Answers

How long have you been a celebrant?

Jen Downie

My celebrant career began in 2010. 

What is the most unique ceremony you have done?

Jen Downie

Every ceremony is unqiue as every couple has their own special story. 

Doing an elopement ceremony in a hot air balloon over the Hunter Valley was a memorable one. It was my birthday that day so it was extra special.

Conducting a ceremony with Indigenous customs performed by an Aboriginal Elder was another very special ceremony. 

Do you do surprise weddings?

Jen Downie

Short answer - yes. But the legal paperwork ( Notice of Intended Marriage) must be completed one month before the date, so the surprise is really for the guests.
