Jaya was amazing!! Through all the lead up, she was approachable, professional, calming and so personable. And in our ceremony, Jaya was perfect. She created such a lovely ceremony with her words and her structure. She brought just the right energy to it and made us feel so at ease. We had so many of our guests comment that they wish Jaya would’ve been their celebrant. I couldn’t recommend her enough!!

Jaya was an absolutely perfect choice of celebrant for us! She helped to make our sunrise elopement exactly what we had hoped for, and more! Jaya is very relaxed and easy going, extremely personable and has lots of great ideas to make your big day just that extra little bit special. Without hesitation my wife and I totally recommend!

Jaya you absolute queen!!! Our ceremony was incredible.

 Honestly I missed the first part of it because I was busy staring at my hot groom haha

But your words were beautiful, you told our story so well and there were a few good laughs in there too.

The cocoa on top of the tiramisu hahaha - I'm still laughing at that.

We are absolutely delighted that we chose Jaya to be our celebrant for our vow renewal. I cannot begin to articulate how happy we are with Jaya and the bespoke ceremony she performed for us.

From the moment I contacted Jaya I knew without a doubt that our special moment in time was in good hands. She totally got us both as a couple and what we pictured our ceremony to look and feel.

Jaya genuinely cared in learning about us both as a couple and because of that she did not feel a stranger to us officiating a ceremony but a friend who captured who we are as a couple and what we mean to each other through her creativity with words.

Jaya is genuine, caring, funny and just an all round beautiful person. When you are around her your immediately at ease and relaxed. Her ability with words is incredible. She is the ultimate celebrant: personable and professional.

I am ever thankful for the inside tips and ideas that Jaya gave me to make our day and photos even more personal and unique. Jaya goes above and beyond. Even her wedding aftercare is en pointe.

We highly recommend Jaya as a civil celebrant AKA hitcher

If you're lucky enough that she is available on your planned special day, don't hesitate, lock her in immediately you wont regret it!

We could not be happier with our choice of Celebrant. Jaya went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. She did a great job of writing the ceremony so it perfectly reflected our personalities. Jaya was open to suggestions and was there to help when I was freaking out about last minute details. Could not recommend more ❤️❤️

We had the pleasure of having Jaya as our celebrant for our wedding a month ago and I could not praise her enough for the AMAZING ceremony she created for us. Jaya went above and beyond throughout the whole process leading up to our wedding to make sure we both felt comfortable and happy with everything, answering and helping us with any questions or concerns we had. Jaya got to know us and made our ceremony personal and unique and i loved how much it reflected us as a couple. We both had so many amazing compliments from our guests about how it was the best ceremony they had been too, and we too couldn't have agreed more. Thank you Jaya!! 💕

Jaya made our wedding day absolutely perfect with an amazing, one of a kind ceremony that captured everything that made Tim and I and our children unique and special. She wrote a ceremony that was full of love, humour and emotion. It was everything we wanted our wedding ceremony to be and more. Jaya is warm, funny and enthusiastic and we would recommend her to anyone wanting a truly amazing and personalised service. Thank you Jaya for making our marriage today so beautiful ❤

Jaya is just the most beautiful, calm and down to earth celebrant. We came to her a little later than expected and she was so efficient in ensuring the whole process was stress free and helped to make our ceremony perfect. It was fun, emotional and really told our story 💕
