About Jen, your Celebrant
No couple or celebration is the same and therefore no ceremony will be either!
After having worked in the professional services industry for many years supporting, mentoring, counselling and encouraging personal growth and success to young (and experienced) achievers, I took what I loved the most out of my experience... and this was helping and caring for people achieve their dreams.
I love now that I get to assist couples on their happiest of days in their marriage ceremony, celebrate couples renewing their commitment of their love for each other, or naming days for babies or an adopted child being given their new family name with love and promises for the future.
I am so honoured to be chosen as a Celebrant in what is one of the most cherished memories and rituals of life, that couples or a family can have.
I will meet and discuss your ceremony, as it is 'your' ceremony that will be written for you alone. Holding a life ceremony is extremely personal and I will deliver this with the passion (and emotion) that you require, being sincere, fun and with the level of excitement that you want, which will be delivered in a relaxed and warm manner and above all ... all about you.
For those getting married, I'm extremely organised and will ensure all your 'legals' are taken care of so that don't need to worry about a thing, giving you space to think about you and your partner.
I believe that love is love and therefore I don't need to promote the sector of weddings I will work with. There is no better thing that accepting everyone for who they are and that love is pure.
No matter what your ceremony is, my passion is to work 'by your side' with my total focus on your day, creating a ceremony that is perfect for you.
About Jen Attard
I was born in Glenelg, raised at Seacliff Park and after moving many times during my life (including London for 3 years) I now live, back in Glenelg. I pinch myself daily at how lucky I am to live in this fantastic suburb, state and country.
As a lover of wine, I believe our State produces the best wines in the world and not to mention our State's beaches! As you can tell, I'm very proudly South Australian.
When I'm not working with my clients, Charlie (my husband) and I love to renovate houses, and we've recently renovated our 1935 bungalow cottage, which we rent out short term and also use as our venue for pop-up weddings (look up Gumnut Cottage in Glenelg East), and we're about to embark on our own home kitchen reno. Charlie's afraid when I say "I've been thinking!" and he says "please don't!" I'm the creator and he's the hands-on who brings our design to life. We're such a dynamic couple.
We're the proud parents of Ollie, our Cavoodle, who loves anyone who walks in the front door!
Between us we have 7 children and 6 grandchildren (currently). We're both very family orientated and when we aren't working or renovating, we're loving the big family dinners we have or we're taking Ollie down the beach for walks.
So that's a snap about me, but what I really would love to do, is to hear about you and your ideas for your special ceremony! Is it a wedding, vow renewal or even a naming ceremony? Don't hesitate to call, email or click on Let's get in touch! I can't wait to hear from you!
