What They Don’t Teach You in Celebrancy Training

I'm Jess, a


Marriage Celebrant


I was once where you are now, a fresh face in the wedding world very keen to make my mark as a celebrant and marry a tonne of amazing couples.

I have been doing this gig 'full time' since 2018, have married over 200 couples and have learned a thing or two over the years. One of the best things I did was follow and be mentored by my fave celebrants. I asked a lot of questions, gained more confidence and have evolved my craft into something that is now truly 'me'. I'd love to help you build your confidence, set up efficient backend procedures, and answer all your celebrant and ceremony questions so you can hit the ground running!

Where Do We Start

First things first, we'll chat about your goals and what you want to focus on. Maybe you need a bit of advice and cover a couple of items on each topic - you've got the confidence, you've got the business brain and you simply need to filter through some do's and don'ts, or perhaps you want a deeper dive into business coaching to cover all bases. We'll work out how often to meet and pick the right setting for our sessions based on your focus. Whether it's for admin processes, setting up your CRM, dealing with the BDM or just good ol' fashioned ceremony writing, my home office is in Tweed Heads, but I love any opportunity to head out to a cafe for some good coffee and conversation. Of course, if you're a bit further away, we can jump on a video call.

No Silly Questions

No Silly Questions

Do you do rehearsals?

Do you play the music and coordinate group photos?

When do you arrive and how long do you stay after the ceremony?

How do you transfer to another celebrant in the event you’re sick?

What do you wear?

What do you provide post-ceremony?

Where do you stand?

Do you show a draft ceremony?

And ANY more you have burning in the back of your mind!

Mentoring sessions are all about you. I'm super flexible and want to make sure you get the most out of our time together. Typically, we work one-on-one, whether that's over coffee, on Zoom or FaceTime, at my place, or yours if you're within 20 km of Tweed Heads. It's all about what you want to achieve.
