We absolutely recommend Jen and By My Side Celebrant.
Jen made us feel at ease throughout the planning process by explaining all the details about the legalities of getting married and what the ceremony on the day would be like.
She guided us through writing our vows and gave us the opportunity to customise the ceremony in a way that suited us.
On the day, she was just wonderfully calm and conducted a perfect ceremony.
As her service is essentially as an orator, I would just like to add that she has a lovely soothing voice and is very eloquent in her speech-writing.

Where do I begin? Jen I can't thank you enough for everything you've provided for us.
We decided to solidify our love in 7 weeks, from that moment on we messaged Jen, she replied promptly and we began planning away.
Her guidance and experience on weddings is simply amazing, any concerns we had Jen was always there to help.
On our wedding day Jen provided us with a perfect short & sweet ceremony and spoke with love from beginning to end.
I can honestly say I wouldn't have changed a thing and can't recommend Jen enough for anyone's celebration.

"As the father of the bride, I highly recommend Jen from By my side Celebrant.
She made everyone feel at ease with her warmth and friendliness, was thorough and the ceremony went very smoothly.
Thank you very much Jen. You helped to make Chloe and Michael’s day, perfect.
Jen married us during the height of Stage 1 COVID-19 restrictions. We thought the intimacy of the ceremony was actually a positive in the difficult times.
Jen was professional, caring and had a calming demeanour which made our special day and just what we had wanted. Jen covered everything that we wanted in our ceremony.
She looked beautiful and that also added to the day :) The only wish we had was that she stayed longer after the ceremony!
We would highly recommend Jen to be your Celebrant.

Jen made our vow renewal on our 35th wedding anniversary a fun, warm and emotional event, all wrapped up in one.
Jen wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and included so many personal touches that really told who we were as a couple and the journey we had travelled for 35 years.
To ensure she captured the real us, her ‘love story’ surveys she sent to us and close family and friends, made our ceremony unique and personal and all about us. What an amazing memory she has made for the next 35 years!
Her dedication, attention to detail and warmth made our celebration as good (if not better) than our wedding day!
I can’t recommend Jen high enough as your Celebrant to any wedding, commitment or vow renewal ceremony.
