Hey there! I'm Jess Dowell, the heart and soul behind Just Jess Ceremonies, honoured to be your go-to marriage celebrant serving the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast areas. With my mantra of 'RELAXED, RELATABLE & REAL' I aim to create weddings that truly reflect your unique love story.

Jess Dowell - Marriage Celebrant


I read once that sometimes people come into your life for a moment, a day or a lifetime. It matters not the time they spent with you but how they impacted your life at that time. I wholeheartedly believe that when a celebrant comes into your life for a moment or day, it’s so important you have chosen the right one for you.

Hey there, I’m Just Jess, a Marriage Celebrant on the Gold Coast and the friend you didn’t know you had. Most would say I’m pretty relaxed (especially after a cheeky glass of wine), very relatable and irrefutably real. I tend to attract the same kind of people, which is my kind of people!

I love life and all things food, travel, trying new things and staying fit to burn off those cocktail cals! Most of all, I love socialising and being out in the sunshine with fun, positive and inspirational people.

Getting to know each other is the fun part, and it gives me such a buzz to recount each couple’s own unique love story in my ceremonies. I tell them in the most fun, real and often happy tear-jerking way. Then I cheerfully send them off into the sunset legally wed, ready to start their forever.

I am organised, have a wealth of event experience, and love searching for those magical spots to make your day even more special (Gold Coast, Tweed and Byron Shire). So, whether you decide on an intimate elopement or the whole shebang, let’s create the perfect ceremony to kick start the rest of your days with your forever plus one.


I understand that choosing a marriage celebrant can feel overwhelming, and I may not be the perfect fit for everyone. The best way to find out is by simply setting aside some time to grab a coffee or have a chat over the phone. What you see is what you get, and you’ll soon determine if we’re the right fit and if moving forward together feels natural.

I bring a relaxed yet super-organised approach, ensuring you don’t have to stress about a thing. Expect plenty of laughter, maybe a few sweet tears, and a guarantee that everyone attending your wedding ceremony will be overflowing with excitement to celebrate your love! It’s simple and seamless with Just Jess Ceremonies.
