Jennifer Cram - Award Winning Brisbane Marriage Celebrant

... making it easy for you to have a ceremony that is a perfect mix of laughter and tears, of serious words and light-hearted expressions, of words to listen to, actions to look at, symbolism to internalise, and interaction between you and your guests as well as between you and me, and between your guests and me, your celebrant.

 
Please call me Jenny. All my friends do.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Whether you are looking for a celebrant, or just gathering information about what you need to do to be legally married, or trying to get a feel for what a naming, renewal of vows or other type of ceremony will entail, I hope the very comprehensive information on my website will be very useful and that, very soon, we will be having a chat about how, together, we can make your hopes for your special day, a reality.

 I am a professional, accredited, award-winning, celebrant with a youthful outlook on life and a propensity for thinking well outside the box, combined with wisdom and life-experience and 12 years of providing unique, custom-created wedding and other ceremonies, something I love doing, so I would love to be your celebrant.
  • I am a full-time celebrant, completely independent of any venue or other wedding service provider, therefore my loyalty and focus is 100% yours.
  • The ceremonies I create and perform are relaxed, but not chaotic, carefully planned, but open to spontaneity, and lovely to look at, so the photos are fantastic.
  • Because I firmly believe that getting married, or organising a ceremony to celebrate a significant life event, should not be hard, I make sure the whole process is straight-forward and focused on what you want to achieve on the day. So, with me as your celebrant the lead-up to your ceremony will be relaxed, stress-free, and fun. In the planning phase, I explore with you all the possibilities for an entertaining and engaging ceremony.
  • Whether you are planning to have the full white wedding ceremony experience or just to get married  in a very simple ceremony that is nonetheless an original and personal experience, a naming ceremony that truly celebrates not only your child but your family, a renewal of vows, or other ceremony, I really will deliver a ceremony that is a fresh and exciting experience and that will touch the hearts of everyone present.
  • I don't just wing it on the day! Your ceremony will be carefully prepared, with lots of input from you, so you are confident on the day.
  • And I don't have my head in a script the whole time. Interaction and speaking from the heart are both features of the ceremonies I work with you to create. You will be sure you guests will feel very much part of the experience.
  • I ensure that ideas of tradition, or misunderstandings about what is required to make sure your marriage is legal, do not prevent or inhibit you from thinking outside the box (or for that matter, pretty well throwing the box away). For example, did you know that the celebrant doesn't have to do all the talking, be centre-stage for the whole time, or talk about themselves in the ceremony?
I'm not going to sell myself purely on my personality. It's not about me, it's about you. Your ceremony. Your day. Your style. I can be (and usually am, when it is appropriate) just as awesome, or fun, or funny, or quirky, or hip, or vibrant, as anyone else, though I don't claim to be one of the best/most awesome etc, or the only one who cares/who is awesome/who is fun etc.

I work very hard to provide each and every client with top quality, personal, service that delivers on their dreams. This has been recognised over many years of making the finalist lists for awards for both Queensland's and Australia's top marriage celebrants. What is more important, though, is that I genuinely care about your ceremony, and about you, so I probably give you more assistance and information than you expect, including all the knowledge that is in my 11 books (so far) on different aspects of wedding ceremonies. I assure you I have no aspirations to being the stand-up comedian, centre-stage throughout the ceremony, hogging the limelight.  I'm not going to elbow my way into selfies either! Nonetheless, no celebrant can honestly make a claim about being the best/most awesome/most fun celebrant on earth because there is no way to verify such claims,  and to make them would make as much sense as claiming to be the best celebrant on the moon! The simple truth is that there are many good/awesome/fun celebrants available, and if I am not available on your chosen date, or we don't click, there will be someone who will.

What some of my clients have said about my services

 
Hi Jenny, Miles and I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you performed yesterday in our home. It truly was warm and wonderful! So many of the guests said the ceremony was the best they’d been to. Your manner was warm, friendly and sincere. You were able to weave a personal and unique ceremony from our answers to your questionnaire. We were most impressed with how you delivered a ceremony that was a true reflection of us. It went beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend you as would many of our guests.  We couldn’t help but be moved by your beautiful and  meaningful  words regarding what marriage signifies. It was pure artistry. We really appreciated  the professional and efficient way you dealt with any queries. Thank you for making our day extra special. - Warm wishes - Eileen and Miles

I love working with you - you are always so professional and caring plus we have a stack of fun.
I love how it's always about the bride and groom and what they are about and what they want. With you no request from them is too much trouble. You are an angel xoxo

Dear Jennifer, Mark and I can not thank you enough for your services.  As effortlessly as you delivered the whole ceremony, the guests would not have known how much work you had put in to making our day as wonderful as it was. We knew!! We completed all those surveys and sent multiple emails which you took in your stride and handled so professionally and with due sensitivity. We had so much fun at our own wedding and even though we had read the ceremony, it still amazed and  touched us. We especially loved the surprise portion. We were not going to video the wedding, though after having a hint of something a little extra occurring we had the photographer set up a video, although we have all sorts of other sounds, planes, wind and lots and lots of laughter, it was great to capture the surprise you had for us and how we handled it. The service you deliver is absolutely, hands down terrific value for money. Our ceremony was everything we wanted and a true reflection of us, you captured the best of us and delivered it marvelously. Thank you!!  You have our highest recommendation. Gratefully - Hanna and Mark

The way you conduct a ceremony is amazing.  You make the guests feel like you've known us for years. The whole ceremony was perfect. We loved how you made us fill in-depth questionnaires to create a ceremony that reflected us. We loved that you took our love of cats and used it to create a beautiful gift and ceremony. All our guests commented on how lovely our ceremony was. - Emma and Jeremy
