Testimonials and love notes from past clients

Here are just a few of the many thank you notes and testimonials I receive in addition to the many positive remarks from guests who love the heartfelt expression of the personalities, values, and beliefs of the couples for whom I create and perform the ceremony, and the unique additions and light-hearted moments that are a feature of all of my marriage, commitment, and renewal of vows ceremonies. These are genuine testimonials. The originals can be viewed when you meet with me.


From photographers & videographers:

Sheila Sissons Photography Was a pleasure as always to witness your special ceremony xx

You are the best celebrant I have ever worked with!! Thank you very much. Bernadette Draffin Photography & Videography - Face book post from Bernadette the morning after the first wedding we worked together.

The ceremony was beautiful, the tokens and traditions you talked about where just beautiful. A few of us said it was the sweetest thing we had had ever seen. You bought a warmth to the ceremony like I have never seen, all of it was from the heart and delivered with love. Jodie Muston from Jodie Muston Photography

Comment from A Mighty Fine Shindig's blog: Their wedding was simple and heartfelt. Officiated by Jennifer Cram - the ceremony was divided several parts - with the couple saying their vows over a "Heart Stone" rather than by exchanging rings. There were several other surprises that Jennifer threw in that brought tears to the eyes of everyone who attended. We're sworn to secrecy (sssh!) but trust us - it was amazing.


Congratulations, Jenny!! It's nice when you're recognised for all the hard work you put into your Weddings. It was great to see you the other day on the mountain!! Shame about the weather...but the ceremony was fantastic!! Thank you Jenny, for a lovely ceremony as usual!! And I loved the little special part of the ceremony at the end...nice touch!!"  - Email from Helen McConnell

Jenny I have had the pleasure of working with you many times and I can honestly say that every time has been beautiful, intimate and personal. Experience counts for a lot, but it isn't just experience or the age of a person that makes a ceremony for a couple, it is a person who has a beautiful soul and puts that into their work that truly makes it a unforgettable and personal experience for the couples. The genuine emotions that you bring out in couples are such beautiful moments for them to share and from a photographers standpoint make our job even more special to be able to be part of and document for our couples
. - Scott Lawler

Hello Jennifer, I would just like to thank you for the absolutely wonderful service you performed for Kylie and Scott at the Indooroopilly Golf club on the 25th September. I found your professional, sincere and yet light hearted touch to their ceremony beautiful.  It made them laugh and interact with their family and friends, which made for great photography. Your guidance and little tips you shared with the couple and bridal party prior to their ceremony, helped me immensely.  I was able to capture those crucial moments with ease and it appeared seamless, to the couple and their guests.  I look forward to working with you again in the near future. - Shelley Lumley of Brisbane Bridal Photography

We were lucky to witness one of the most touching ceremonies which brought tears to everyone's eyes. - Comment by photographer Lucia Tai in her blog entry about  Bronwyn and Luke's wedding at the Summit Restaurant at Mt Coot-tha.

From Couples
Dear Jennifer, Simon and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful and warm ceremony that you led for us.
All our family and friends have commented on how wonderfully warm and personal the ceremony was and how beautifully gentle, warm and reassuring you are. I know I really enjoyed every minute of it and I will remember that day with a smile forever. Thanks for the 'surprise', what a wonderfully sweet and thoughtful gesture. We are thrilled to have chosen you as our celebrant on our special day and could not have imagined better- so thank-you! - Michelle and Simon, who married in the New Farm Park Rotunda as a loving tribute to Simon's father who grew up playing in New Farm Park.

Bruce and I would like to thank you for the beautiful wedding ceremony in which you delivered for us together with the Families. All our family members commented on what a wonderful job you did, and reminded us of what we already knew, and that being how lucky we were to have found a fantastic celebrant and how good you are at what you do. - Email from Rachel and Bruce who married by the side of the Pine River in a ceremony that celebrated and included the families and all their friends present. This was followed up with their formal testimonial: We just had Jennifer for our wedding and may I say she did a magnificent job. She was very professional at her job in all formats as she made us very comfortable plus all guests. She makes everyone laugh and get involved in the ceremony. A big thanks to Jennifer and may many more couples enjoy your professionalism.

Thank you so much for making our ceremony so personal. It was exactly what we were hoping for. We loved the way that you included our backgrounds and family and had special surprises for us. It was wonderful - thank you! _Emma and Brett who eloped to the Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha with their photographer and one of the volunteer guides as witnesses.

You made us feel at ease and understood exact what sort of ceremony we wanted and worked out a ceremony based upon our wishes and the legal aspect of the night. Honestly I can't fault any aspect of the service you provided. - Sharyn and Grant who married in an ultra-casual family occasion full of love and back-chatting.

The whole ceremony was so special for us. It's wonderful even if it's simple. We are very happy. You helped us a lot to make things easy. Thank you. - Joy and Tony who married in a simple ceremony in the Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens with a passing stranger (who proceeded to take fantastic photos for them) as a fill-in witness when one of their witnesses couldn't make it.

We loved our ceremony. It was personal, meaningful and intimate. But above all friendly and casual. - Kylie and Lima


Civil
                                Partnership CeremonyJennifer, we wish to tell you about your feedback... everyone loves you! In our private conversations with other friends & guests present they thought that your presentation was fabulous so don't be in the least bit surprised you will be contacted by a number them for their nuptials - Facebook post by Trudi and Sophia after their Declaration Ceremony.

Thank you Jen for giving us the wedding that we wanted. Light, Easy and no Fuss. And I do appreciate you bringing up my Filipino tradition on our wedding. My parents were happy when I told them what you did. - Chery Mae who married Nathan at the Kholo Chapel.


Jenny was a delight.  Jenny was very prompt, and thorough, in all her communications and she made the process of creating our ceremony very easy and stress free. Jenny tailored our ceremony to suit us, and our guests and circumstances.  The extra touches that Jenny included, as a surprise for us, were delightful and will long be remembered. Jenny was the only celebrant, that I contacted, who respected my wishes for a very, very simple ceremony and who didn't assume that I was misunderstanding my own wants/needs by asserting that I needed a whole lot of useless extras that somehow validated the overinflated price that they had quoted. I found that Jenny was the only celebrant who actually listened to us and our desires for our wedding and didn't assert her own wishes for our wedding on to us. We all very much enjoyed have Jenny as part of our special day and we would recommend her to anyone. Amanda and Tony who married in a very informal weekday ceremony at work!

                        solemnised by Jennifer Cram, Brisbane Marriage
                        Celebrant
We chose Jenny as our celebrant due to her open-minded approach. She was incredibly professional and thorough in the lead-up to our wedding and planning the ceremony. The wedding ceremony was engaging, thoughtful, and respectful. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful she was and what a meaningful ceremony it was. We are grateful to have had Jenny as our celebrant and would highly recommend her to others. Cara and Ron who married in Ron's parents' lovely garden.



Hicham and I are pleased to recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a warm, funny, personal wedding ceremony. Her attention to detail in the lead up to the day meant nothing was forgotten and she found a way to tie in cultures and traditions from both sides beautifully - Testimonial from Gabby and Hicham who married in Gabby's parents lovely garden. They also sent a lovely personal note in which they said "Thank you for your hard work and organisational skills that you displayed in the time leading up to the day. You created a ceremony even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We cannot express to you how blown away our guests were. We were told over and over by our friends and family that the ceremony you conducted was one of the best they had ever seen and that you were absolutely fantastic. They loved how you told the story of our relationship and brought the many different cultures together. They loved how personal it was and felt it really came from the heart. Without your help the day would not have been as special as it was. We will take great pleasure in recommending you to anyone seeking a fabulous celebrant."

Very happy with all the help and service Jenny has given us in this very long process over the last 2 years. Jenny had great knowledge and understanding of what it takes to do when bringing a fiancee to Australia from overseas. Jenny will not take short cuts or do anything that may jeopardize the success of the visa. We are more than happy to recommend Jenny - Graeme and Le Ha, who married in a small park near their home.

Anthony and I just wanted to send you a belated thank you from us for the 5th of December. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we were very grateful for the way you performed it. Our guests loved it too. Thank you for all of the thought and time you put into making our day so very special. Regards - Carolyn and Anthony who married in her parents' garden.

Thank you so much Jenny for the Warm and Wonderful wedding you gave us - it really lived upt to its name - warm and wonderful - because that is what we felt on our wedding day and more. You exceeded our expectations and you made us feel very special on our wedding day. Prior to that, you warmly welcomed us and gave us a hassle-free experience from day one give the short time-frame of only one month wedding preparation. Furthermore, all of our guests, especially our families, complimented that it was a beautiful, heartwarming and intimate (with a few laughs) wedding ceremony. Being together as a couple for 13 years we wanted a celebrant to make our union extra special and person with a touch of funny moments and we gladly chose the right celebrant. Thank you Jenny. - Honey and Ruel who married under the Moreton Bay Fig trees at Old Petrie Town. It was a special treat to catch up with Honey's sister and brother-in-law, and good friends Lyza and Calvin, whose weddings I had also officiated a couple of years ago.

Thank you so much for yesterday! Well, not only yesterday actually, but from the moment we contacted you :) you have been so upfront and direct, you made it easy to understand what we had to do from the start. Joshua and I are so happy! It was such an intimate ceremony. And thank you for the surprise! You made it so meaningful and cultural too! You are wonderful and I gladly recommend you to any persons I know to be their celebrant. - Benita and Joshua who married at Underwood Park.

Thank you so much! You did a wonderful job and everyone was raving about how funny and clever our ceremony was!! - Emily and Tony who married on a private rural property.

Jenn did her best to make sure everything went smoothly on the day and had the knowledge to make sure all the legal aspects were correct and covered. We both enjoyed our ceremony very much and it had a nice person feel and a few personal touches as well. I feel I could say it would sure beat a Registry Office Ceremony. We wanted a ceremony with the minimum amount of fuss and nothing over the top so it was good to have so many wedding style 'choices'. The custom vows were also very nice, very happy with everything. Perfect. Thank you. - Cam and Chris who married at Lake Samsonvale with 3 swans in the background and their 2 children involved in the ceremony. Chris looked fabulous in a navy polkadot 50s style dress with touches of red.

We weren't sure what to expect and what to do. You made it very simple and easy and explained everything. We both felt confident, at ease, all the time. We enjoyed filling out the information - made it more personal. [On the day] you made us both relax. Personal and funny! - Kerry and James who eloped early in the morning at New Farm Park, with a friend and their photographer as witnesses.

Well tomorrow will be 2 months since I walked that garden path, up to my beautiful partner and we become one. I can't put into words how I felt on that day, because no words can describe the pure joy, love, excitement, nervousness I experienced. I would love to thank you to our wonderful celebrant Jennifer Cram, what an awesome lady you are. You made us feel very beautiful and let us glowing inside, never have I felt such joy and wonder what was to happen next. You are a ...treasure to our world. - Facebook post by Lyn who committed to Sunny at Wineglass Falls Gardens

Hi Jenny, Thank you so much for our special ceremony yesterday.
We loved the personal and memorable touches you added. You made it fantastic for us. Thank you. Off to our honeymoon now in Fiji!! Thank you
xox - Aline and Stuart, who married at Brookwater Golf Club in a ceremony that included vows in English and Portuguese.

Hi Jennifer, We just wanted to thank you for such a lovely day.  We both feel you are so good at what you do and we are so lucky to have you in our special day.  I also wanted to thank you for the booklet and thoughtful gifts your gave us.  The meaning behind is means so much to us.  Wishing you all the best!  You are a great person and do such meaningful things that impact peoples lives in such a positive way. - Cindy and Charles, who eloped in a very private ceremony at the Powerhouse with their photographer and a passing stranger as their witnesses.

We just wanted to say a massive thank-you for yesterday. We had the best time and everything was perfect (and exactly what we wanted). We really appreciate the extra effort you put in! Biggest thank-you for making our dream wedding/elopement a reality! - Emma and Martin who eloped with 2 witnesses, 1 photographer and 1 very large and very friendly dog on the Woody Point Jetty.

Hi Jenny, I just wanted to say thank you so much for our beautiful ceremony, it was everything we wanted and more.  I have had so many people comment on how much they enjoyed our ceremony and others saying it was the best one they have been to.  One of my friends from work said that when her and her partner eventually get married they would like to have you do their ceremony because you made it fun, another friend said they wished they had you as their celebrant because their celebrant was stiff and boring.  I must say for me the ceremony was the highlight of the day, you made our wedding day so special, you made us laugh and cry and have the best time, you made it so personal to us that every one of the guests would of possibly learnt something about us they may not of known, I have never actually been to a ceremony that was so enjoyable that you almost don't want it to end except for ours,  I had so much fun, I will be recommending you to everyone, thank you so much. xxx Lots of Love Sherie & Andy xxx - who married in the chapel at Old Petrie Town in a ceremony chock full of Irish customs.


Jermaine & I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being our celebrant and making the main part and beginning of our day so amazing. Our ceremony was exactly as we dreamed - we got all the comments we were after and so many more. We got several comments from our guests that you were the best celebrant they have seen & they will be asking for your details when it comes time that they get married. It really set the tone for the rest of the day which all turned out just perfect. - Emma and Jermaine who married at Links Hope Island Golf Resort.

Mary and I wanted to take some time out to thank you. We only have positive things to say in all dealings with you as our celebrant. From the first phone call enquiry, to the endless email chain and prompt replies from you, to the wedding day itself. We could not have asked for an easier and more relaxed and enjoyable wedding day than the one you helped us to create. You not only tailored us the perfect package but you created a memory that we will never forget. You went above and beyond your role as a Celebrant and assisted us in so many ways.
Everything went smoothly yesterday and felt very relaxed and personal. We had guests comment that they had been to many weddings before but none that were as enjoyable to watch and listen as ours. The ceremony you deliver and the way you deliver it made our day everything we could have ever dreamed of and more. We both appreciate th extra customised services that you offer to your clients out of th kindness of your heart, and we will both highly recommend you as a celebrant in the future. Kind Regards - Mark and Mary who held their wedding at Collins Park, Redland Bay.

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful service yesterday at the ceremony. Monique, myself and all our guests were very happy with how everything went and I thank you for that. You were fun, professional and everything we wanted in a celebrant! Thank you for your excellent work and enthusiasm on our special day. Kind regards  - Cassandra and Monique who held their commitment ceremony in Cass' mother's back garden.

I am back in France(Paris) now but for a few weeks as you already know that my visa has finally been granted and we are so,so,so HAPPY. So I wanted to send to you some pictures from us of a memorable day etched in my heart forever..... Take of yourself, Kind regards Laurence - who married her one true love Richard in a simple backyard ceremony




Dear Jenny, We cannot believe it has been over 12 months since our wedding day. It has been a very big year since our beautiful ceremony. We must apologize at length for not contacting you earlier to say thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you created for us. Not a day goes by when we don't say to each other we must contact Jenny to thank her!
Kim and Brendan married by Jennifer Cram,
                          Brisbane Marriage CelebrantWithin the first 5 minutes of meeting we knew you were our celebrant. (Kimmy knew after speaking with you over the phone :-)  We loved your matter of fact, practical approach that helped us break away from some of the more cliche'd arrangements on offer. It was hardly surprising that time raced away during our initial meeting! We were so grateful to you for traveling the extra distance when we had a late venue change as we are sure our ceremony would not have been so special without you and your special gift for personalizing our day the way you did. Our Mum's loved being involved and Gigi was so touched by the way you included Kimmy's Grandpa in such a subtle and considered way. The ceremony was so special, low key as we had hoped but with a few twists to keep everyone on their toes and having a few laughs as well. The words you spoke were polished and touching. Particularly the reference to what our government legally terms as marriage and what our opinion of this is. That was significant given our close friend was in attendance with her partner. Your attention to detail and organisation were reassuring even when we threw the birth certificate curve ball at you! You always kept a sense of humor with us during the process. You even saved Brendan's finger from certain amputation!
Kimmy cannot thank you enough for all of your suggestions and editing of the vows. It was so important to her that we were clear on what we were promising each other and the keepsake copies of our ceremony were so thoughtful. We can now look back on these as the years pass by and make sure we're always maintaining our end of the bargain!
We know this thank you is far too late. But we hope that does not undermine it's sincerity. You truly are gifted at what you do. - Brendan and Kim who married in the garden of a lovely Italian restaurant.

We are so excited when we hear of upcoming nuptials - because we really enjoy recommending Jennifer's professional services, and raving about our cleverness in selecting such a wonderful celebrant. The best part about working with Jennifer is her intelligent reading of people. We didn't know exactly what we wanted out of a wedding ceremony - but after meeting with us, Jennifer did. She skilfully evaluated what was important to us and wrote us the ceremony we never knew we always wanted. Working with Jennifer was so easy, and we will always treasure our bespoke ceremony. - Sarah and Will.

Jennifer thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony! You are a superstar! Many many wonderful positive comments about the ceremony. Thank you again. - Facebook comment from Jacquie after her wedding to Steve at Topiaries.

Everyone was amazing to fix that disaster Thank you Jennifer Cram it was a beautiful ceremony and thank you for staying while they frantically found somewhere for us. Facebook message from Lee the morning after her wedding to John. A dangerous storm and heavy rain necessitated a last minute change of venue and a delayed start to the ceremony. John followed up with this email: Hi Jenny, On behalf of my bride and I , thank you for conducting our wedding on Saturday, through very trying times indeed. We received a significant amount of very positive feedback in relation to your service, people appreciated the delivery and tone in which you delivered our service and the result was exactly what we were hoping for.

Thanks so much for a lovely ceremony - everyone was very impressed with you and thoroughly enjoyed your delivery.  Dad (Jim) said it was the best ceremony he has been to. - Email from Janine, the morning after her intimate handfasting wedding to Paul at their home.
Thank

Thank you for the wonderful job you did as our wedding celebrant last year. We will forever hold fond memories of our unique ceremony. Your extra additions were a wonderful special touch. many thanks again and best wishes - Megan and Michael who married at the Powerhouse, New Farm.

Ryan and I would just like to say thank you for all the behind the scenes effort that you put together to help make our day spectacular! We really loved the English/German heritage touch and little items that you bought for the day (I'm now looking to get them framed along with my bouquet which I have sent off for freeze drying).  You really went over and above what I was expecting.  It was definitely a good surprise!  You are definitely deserving of the awards you have earned. Our guests have not stopped raving about what an awesome job you did.  We even have friends that said they wished they would have had you as their celebrant when they got married. I have no hesitation in recommending you to others that are looking to get married. Regards, Natalie - who married her sweetheart, Ryan, in the Broadway Chapel on Valentine's Day

Janna & Arvin after their wedding
                          conducted by Jennifer Cram Brisbane CelebrantHi Jenny, Arvin and I are back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a huge thank you for all your efforts for our wedding ceremony. You were fantastic! We will complete the feedback form and send it soon. We will definitely recommend your services. Our marriage certificate also arrived today too so I will start the process in changing my name now (officially, woo hoo) Take care X - Janna and Arvin who married at Topiaries, Samford. Later they sent this testimonial with the post-it attached: From our first meeting with Jenny, Arvin and I felt very comfortable and at ease. She was very responsive when communicating PostIt Note that reads "Jenny, this
                          was hard to write as no words can do you
                          justice!" attached to testimonial about
                          Jennifer Cram Brisbane Celebrantwith us. All of our guests commented on how good our ceremony was and are still talking about it. It was obvious how much effort Jenny put into the ceremony which shows her commitment and passion for her job as a celebrant. Definitely recommend Jenny!






If you are looking for a wedding celebrant with a friendly face - speaks very well - honest and forthright in explaining what is required in documents and is punctual in all she does and on arrival to your venue - then look no further than Jennifer Cram. She spent countless hours and at times making phone calls to myself to ensure all is OK. Even to texting me to see how I was going and also my wife. Thank you Jennifer for making our day such a wonderful and joyous wedding. You made us feel very important and you were so patient. We only wanted a simple, old-fashioned wedding and you had no problems with that.  - Neville and Trang who married in their garden.

Thank you so much for Saturday. 
Me and Adam had the most wonderful day. Thanks you for giving us exactly what we wanted. You made it so stress free and fun thank you so much. - Carol and Adam who married in the Rotunda at New Farm Park.

Despite the simple and low key ceremony request from our side you managed to make it a very special and warm and unforgettable experience. - Jana and Francois.

Testimonial:
When we first decided we would get married while on holiday in Qld, we started by searching marriage celebrants online.  I think Jennifer was the first one I search. It didn't take long to realise I didn't need to look any further. I sent a brief email, just making enquiries and had a quick, friendly, informative response. We chose the Couture Elopement which suited our needs perfectly. Jenny guided us through the paperwork and you really need someone who is experienced and knows what they are doing. On the day, as well as being professional, Jenny also made it fun. She went above and beyond her obligations as a celebrant, which made the day extra special for us. We are already talking about renewing our vows on our anniversary!

Jennifer gave us a unforgettable wedding ceremony. We came to Australia from the USA and really didn’t know what to expect. Jennifer was so warm and welcoming and maintained such great communication throughout our whole planning process. We would recommend Jennifer for all ceremonies. I felt she was so creative and had a really good feel for our relationship. Thank you so much for everything. You truly gave us a gift we will never forget. Thank you for taking the time to make it so special for us. - Brianna and Randy who eloped to Spicers Hiddenvale and used their photographer and the wedding coordinator as their witnesses.

Hi Jenny, Just to say thank you so much for everything and your relentless efforts. You came at a time we needed you most, God bless you - Beverley and Nonsi who married with a shortening of time.

Our favourite part of the ceremony was how you made us and our families relaxed and comfortable. We were very impressed with the personal touches you added. The way you performed the ceremony was memorable and the assistance you gave us with the legal paperwork was outstanding. - Pru and Simon who married in their lovely garden with a shortening of time.

Hi Jenny, thanks so much again for yesterday! We had a lot of compliments on the ceremony, and one friend said you got the tone exactly right.  Thanks! Annaliese and Johann who married at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha

Leonie and Mark with Brisbane
                              Marriage Celebrant, Jennifer CramThank you so much Jennifer for a beautiful lovely ceremony on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed themselves and complimented how great you were - Facebook post from Leonie who married Mark at Mt Crosby Bowls Club in a simple ceremony that involved Mark's three children.
Later they sent this:
Jennifer Cram was an excellent celebrant. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend her for future services. It made us feel very special and it was great that we could have a bit of a laugh through it all. It was magical. Thank you so much for making our special day one to remember (in more ways than one).

Thank you so much again for making our day so special. You were amazing for us, I'm so glad to have chosen you. If I get the chance to recommend a celebrant any time soon, you can be sure yours will be the name I give :) - Ashleigh & Darren, who had a very intimate ceremony on the Wynnum foreshore with their mothers and several dozen pelicans as witnesses.

Jenny was extremely professional, entertaining, experienced, and friendly. She obviously has a passion for her work and this comes across to all those that interact with her. We fully recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant. Everything was professional, considerate of us, audible, and pitched correctly to our personalities and audience. Thank you Jenny for making our day exactly what we wanted! It surpassed our expectations - Hwee Sin and Nick who married at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens.

Gareth and I would like to thank Jenny for making our wedding better than we could have possibly imagined - to anyone who reads this testimonial I cannot recommend Jenny enough.
I was initially impressed by Jenny's website when I was cautiously looking for a celebrant in Australia (on the other side of the world!) to perform our wedding. I needn't have been cautious as Jenny's thorough and impressive website is a clear indication of what you are going to get!!Michelle and Gareth just
                                married by Jennifer Cram Brisbane
                                Wedding Celebrant
We noted how quick Jenny responded to any emails we sent - when working out the time difference between Australia and the UK it was clear that Jenny responded to any questions sent overnight first thing in the morning!! Not only did Jenny respond straight away but was thorough and responded in a friendly and welcoming way.
I was worried that the whole paperwork process
would be difficult and complicated but Jenny talked us through it every step of the way and made it a breeze!!
Gareth and I chose a 'simple-no frills' ceremony as we were on th other side of the world away from the majority of our family and friends. Jenny made our 'simple' ceremony an absolute delight from start to finish with her sense of humour, friendly manner, and extra touches of gifts with symbolism that Jenny had obviously put extra thought in to.
All in all I can honestly say that Jenny deserves all the awards that she has previously won - and I am sure will continue to win - as she puts her heart and soul into all her weddings - simple or extravagant.
Thank you Jenny from the bottom of our hearts. Gareth and I couldn't have asked for anything better X - Michelle and Gareth who came from the English Midlands to be married at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha.

Thank you again Jennifer for all you put together for us. We really enjoyed the experience and appreciate how simple you made everything. It was lovely but to the point - exactly what we wanted! Many thanks and many blessings. - Email sent the day of the wedding from a couple who married in an intimate ceremony sitting around a table on the deck at the Botanical Café. They've requested to remain anonymous until they've told their families!
A few days later they sent this testimonial:
Our wedding ceremony with Jennifer was perfect. It was exactly what we asked for without any hiccups or issues. This can definitely be attributed to Jennifer's exemplary attention to detail and very thoughtful guidance and advice. She literally considered every detail and was always available and willing to assist us in preparing. We did a registry style wedding because we really just need to get the certificate for international visa purposes - while the experience was simple Jennifer definitely made it lovely and emotive. We really appreciated how simple she made the paperwork. Jennifer really took care of all our needs and requests for our big day!

Dear Jenny, Thank you for a lovely and intimate ceremony. It was special and heartwarming for us. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and sense of humor was highly appreciated. We could not have asked for a better ceremony. - Jay and Rhuna, who married at the Chermside Bowls Club surrounded by close family and friends.

I would like to thank you with all my heart. The ceremony was truly inspirational, your professionalism, wisdom and dedication to your work and Jennifer as a person I am speechless. Jennifer how you value people and uphold values, we never will forget. The way you speak truthfully and with certainty, is humbling. You could create and mend the broken with your passion and beliefs. Everyone needs a Jennifer to be there in their life !!. You have given me more than you could ever imagine. Truly thankful kindest regards - Brendan, who married the love of his life, Michelle, in an intimate ceremony at home. Michelle also sent a very long thank you letter with the feedback form. Here are some extracts: How do I thank you enough? What an amazing gift you have given Brendan and I ......From the start with your patience with my never-ending emails of enquiry to our first meeting which sealed the deal for me you made us feel so comfortable!.... You were incredibly accommodating and especially kind .... When you sent me the draft of our ceremony I read it a thousand times and every time I was reduced to tears ....[On the day, the ceremony was] Amazing. A sensory overload. It was everything and more. It was comfortable but important, light, but romantic. Beautiful in every sense...you hit the nail on the head .... Your experience shows in all the ways you conducted yourself from dealing with our crazy family, to a show-stealing doggy and an over emotional bride who got a giggle fit. Out of 10 you're 100!"


Dom and Yann after their rooftop wedding
                          conducted by Jennifer Cram, Brisbane Wedding
                          CelebrantJennifer Cram, you are the most genuine, people loving woman. Thank you for all your efforts on going up and beyond the expectations of an ordinary celebrant. It was the most perfect wedding ceremony. It touched my heart and uplifted me and Yann. I'm still excited and on cloud 9 about this day 3 days after. I'm truly grateful we found you online. "Lady Cupid", you are an angel who was made to bring people into the first chapters of their lives together. At any time of my life I hear someone getting married I will recommend you. Love always. Dom and Yann, who married on a roof top in West End. A few weeks later Dom also sent a lovely email: It's obvious to me your purpose in life is to bring real love together and teach us the importance of a marriage in a modern world . I loved it.

Jennifer, we chose you because you default to awesome and leave out the gender bias, religion, over-explanation, tasteless jokes, awkward vows and dreary biographical readings that I’ve experienced in other weddings - Tony and Leslie who married in their backyard.

The ceremony was moving, personal, not overly formal, but a good balance (a real sense of occasion). It was really 'us' - a lot of people commented that this was the case!  It was lovely to have all the family involved and Rachel's dad to be acknowledged.  - Rachel and Eric, who married at The Village in Yeronga in a ceremony that was held under a flower-bedecked chuppah made of green bamboo and which included their parents, all of their siblings and three languages. A real celebration of both their cultures.

Our experience was one of great love and emotion. Your guidance through the ceremony was very much appreciated. Your service was warm, romantic, emotional and humorous. We loved the service. It was perfect for us. Thank you so much, Jenny - Glenn and Marites who married in a serene parkland setting

We were extremely happy with Jenny's services. Jenny was very organised and efficient, from our very first contact. At our first meeting Jenny read us very well, which gave us a nice level of comfort that she would perform the ceremony in line with our style. The ceremony was perfect, and we loved the personal touches that she included to make it extra special. Our families were very impressed. I would highly recommend Jenny as a celebrant. Kelly and Dave who married at in their own home. 

I felt that Jenny Cram was thoroughly emotionally invested in the event. I felt she was truly interested in making it the most happy moment of our lives. The wedding ceremony was performed by Jenny with freshness, interest and emotional investment and was most satisfying. It had a constant, natural flow and was intuitively arranged and carried out. Jenny is an experienced celebrant but each marriage performed is with the attention and care of a loving relative or friend. I would recommend anyone else. - Jason and Plabplung who married in an intimate ceremony that incorporated their Hindu spiritual beliefs.

The ceremony was spot on and easy. You made if feel very comfortable and everyone loved the surprise.  Thank you so much. Everything was great! - Brooke and Luke who held their wedding at Elysium Lakeside at Victoria Point.

It was a pleasant and refreshing experience which I was pleased was performed by you. I felt relaxed and comfortable that our beliefs were incorporated and we had the freedom to express it. Everything was more than I expected. - Heather and Daemon who married in an unstructured ceremony at their favourite coffee shop.

Our friend (Gory) said "She delivered one of the best ceremonies I have ever witnessed. It was emotionful, truthful, symbolic, and honouring of the bride and groom." - Rita and John who held their wedding at Kesone Thai Restaurant in Corinda.

Thank you Jennifer Cram, you have nailed it yet again for us. 3 Naming Ceremonies and finally Our Wedding. Over the past 7 years you have become like family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. xx - Samantha and Gavin who married in a lovely rural setting

Jenny, thank you so much for making our big day go off perfectly. We both enjoyed it from "Go to Whoa". It was hastily planned but the day went off perfectly due largely to you experience and advice. We certainly were (and are) happily married. - Fred and Jess, who married at the Hilton.

Dear Jennifer,  "THANK YOU",  Tony and I would like to give you a massive thank you for conducting our marriage ceremony on Monday the 14/04/14.  We had an amazing day and felt very comfortable and relaxed. We had great feedback from our family, they just loved your professionalism and personal touches and so did we.  Scattering of the rose petals and rice with our special song was so beautiful.  I would want to do it all over again. You made our very special day extra special.   We appreciate the lucky copper coin you gave us for good luck, we will treasure it for the rest of our lives. Your preparation through the ceremony was amazing and we were honoured to have you as our wedding celebrant.  Most sincerely -  Anita and Tony who married in an intimate ceremony at home.

Elise&DanSpecial thanks to Jennifer Cram today for making our day incredibly sweet & simple! Everyone loved it and our friends told us it was the best ceremony they've been to yet!

Thank u!! - Facebook post from Elise and Dan who married at Rocks Riverside Park [photo courtesy of Owen Flynn]
All our guests loved the ceremony & told us that they never thought a simple ceremony could be so much fun and entertaining. It was a great ceremony & we are glad we had you as our celebrant. Testimonial: Thanks again Jenny for a wonderful, care-free, sweet & surprising ceremony. Everyone had a blast, especially with a sunny day in the park, guests were amazed at how simple, yet sweet a short ceremony can be. Thank you for making our day special. We loved and enjoyed every minute of it. - Elise and Dan


Hi Jenny,  Very sorry to only write you so late, but I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful wedding we had on March 22nd.  I'm glad we left a lot of things up to you - and very glad we got such an experienced and wise hand for the job.  Little things, like the position of the bridal party, the jokes and fun talk during the ceremony, and of course the wonderful surprise of the traditional gifts were so great.  - Email from Roy, who, with Konatsu held their celebration of marriage ceremony at Raby Bay Foreshore Park. Roy and Konatsu - Bilingual celebration
                          of marriage at Raby Bay with Jennifer Cram,
                          Brisbane Marriage Celebrant 
Formal Testimonial: The ceremony was very sincere and wonderful. We didn’t want a serious or boring ceremony, for our friends and family to just switch off through.  Also, being very down to earth people, we were happy that you accommodated us and that the ceremony reflected this. Thank you Jenny for making our special day as fun and stress-free as possible.  We certainly made it difficult for you, flying into Brisbane only a week before the event from Japan, but you worked with us to create something very personal and unique without even having met us in person – truly a talent. The ceremony was a success, and picture perfect next to the beach at Raby Bay.  Friends and family flew in with us to celebrate, and everyone had nothing but praise for the ceremony, which accommodated a Japanese translation alongside the English version.  I would recommend you to anyone and everyone I can! - Roy and Konatsu

It was both professional and friendly and perfectly short but sweet. Exactly what we wanted and we all had a lovely time - Emma and Sean who held their picnic wedding in the City Botanic Gardens

Your dry sense of humour along with the personal touches made it a very special and fulfilling day. Your performance was exception, a breath of fresh air from the usual bland ceremonies we have witnessed in the past. Our elopement wedding was just what we wanted and had envisaged. Testimonial: We are from the UK and initially were a little worried about organising a wedding overseas, but Jennifer's calm, reassuring, professional manner quickly put us at our ease. The ceremony itself was wonderful - thoughtful, personal, fun - a truly memorable experience. We are delighted that we chose Jennifer as our celebrant. . Kind regards and love, Chris and Claire xxx

Jennet and I would like to thank you for your superb wedding ceremony. Everybody at the wedding commented what a delightful, simple but fun filled ceremony you conducted. I am glad we chose you and would not hesitate to recommend your services to any couples that are contemplating marriage Once again thank you very much for your kind and meaningful words for our special occasion. Regards - Bill and Jennet who married at Scarborough Beach Park.

I loved how relaxed the ceremony was. I was initially doubtful about staring at guests the whole time but it turned out perfect. You made it such a warm, welcoming and involved ceremony. I had many comments to attest to that! - Sherilei who married Arren at Forestglen Park on Valentine's Day.
Exactly what we wanted. Short but sentimental. Everyone loved it. - Kylie and John who came down from the Sunshine Coast hinterland to be married at Southbank Parklands and who told me that they chose me because I had 'the best feedback on the Internet'!

We were very happy with your service from the initial emails to the ceremony. It felt like a personal service to us, not a quick through the motions affair. We were very impressed and pleased with our choice. Thanks Jenny for a lovely ceremony.  Your choice of wording was perfect. Thank you for our perfect day. -  Louise and Rich who came from a  very cold England to be married at Redcliffe in a Warm and Wonderful Weekend Wedding ceremony (Registry Office style ceremony) on the hottest day ever.

It was wonderful, thoughtful and personal and my family and friends have said they loved your delivery and dry sense of humour along with the personal touches. We are so delighted that we chose you as our celebrant and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you in the future. Bye for now but hopefully our paths will cross again.

At least two dozen people commented to us that our ceremony was the best they had ever seen and we are still receiving texts with similar comments today. We just can't thank you enough for creating a fabulous ceremony that was so warm, fun and very personal. - Email from Liz and Cameron the day after their wedding at the Glen Hotel.

A massive thank you for our commitment ceremony, it was absolutely, exactly what we wanted. You really listened to our needs and played close attention to what we said in our questionnaires, and managed to turn it into something absolutely beautiful. Although we only met once prior to the wedding, with the help of your hard work and your excellent questionnaires it really felt like you knew us well.  We've had such fantastic feedback from our friends and families. A lot of people weren't really sure what to expect from a commitment ceremony, but I think everyone felt the ceremony was very familiar, without mirroring a hetero wedding. We've even had feedback from some of our family members, encouraging us to submit our wedding video to government so they can see how 'normal' we are! :)  You know how worried I was about the wedding, about panicking in front of everyone etc, but as soon as I was stood at the front I felt completely relaxed, and I really feel that the atmosphere you created really helped with that. At the reception, I even read out some trivia questions in front of everyone! Maybe it was the dutch courage from the wine ceremony ;)  Thanks so much again, will highly recommend you if anyone needs a celebrant in the future :) - Lynsay and Dani who held their ceremony at Riverlife

The scripting of the ceremony to reflect our desire to keep the event fun and loving, mingled with the "surprise" at the end, made the whole experience a favorite - Carolyn and Peter who married in an intimate ceremony with just the two of them, their witnesses and a photographer in the Spectacle Gardens at Roma Street Parkland

The ceremony matched our requests perfectly, it was quick and concise yet showed the love and affection we have for each other. It made us feel excited to start our lives together as husband and wife. Jenny took special care to make our ceremony special, without being intrusive or adding things we didn’t want. It was almost as if she knew us without ever having met us. I recommend her highly. -   Julie and Justin who held their ceremony at Flying Duck in the Roma Street Parkland

It was a beautiful day, perfectly suited us. The little touches were wonderful. - Danielle and Paul who married at the Bush Chapel, J C Slaughter Falls.

                            Jennifer Cram Brisbane Marriage CelebrantYou put extra effort into the ceremony and you seemed to understand what kind of people we were after just meeting us once. You went far beyond what we were expecting and we were just so happy with the ceremony. All the guests at the ceremony were asking us where we had found you and that it was the best ceremony they had been to.
Testimonial: We met Jennifer once before the wedding and she went through the legal procedures with us and guided us through the writing of our vows. We changed some of the original plans at the last minute (the evening before) and Jenny was very flexible with this. The next time we saw Jenny was at the wedding ceremony itself. We couldn't have asked for a more personal, thoughtful ceremony. Jennifer managed to include humorous and light hearted moments in the ceremony without losing the sense of occasion or solemnity. We agreed that Jennifer would add a surprise element to the ceremony, which was extremely well received by us and everyone present. We are so grateful to Jenny for making our wedding ceremony such a special and memorable occasion and will be recommending her to all of our friends. - Rebecca and Tom who married in a Warm and Wonderful Weekend Wedding at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha

Testimonial: From the get go Jenny made us feel comfortable. She explained all the in's and out's. Jenny is so easy to talk to and very quick to respond to any question or concern you have. Her prices are very reasonable for the service and attention to detail she provides. Our ceremony was small with only 10 guests in total but Jenny made everyone laugh and feel welcome.

We were delighted, and so were our family and friends.  All the best! - Nicole and Gabby who celebrated their 10th anniversary with a surprise commitment ceremony held on their back deck that included a very sweet ring presentation by their dog, Rizzo.
Testimonial from Nicole and Gabby:  We were lucky enough to have Jennifer Cram design and conduct our commitment ceremony recently and highly recommend that you secure her services before you even begin to plan your special day! In addition to being a lovely lady and a genuine support of same sex marriage, Jenny is a true professional with the ability to use her experience and talent to ensure that your ceremony is unique and special to you and your partner alone. Our friends and family say that they enjoyed feeling including in the occasion and that it seem like Jenny knew Gabby and I personally. Many of them also said it was one of the most moving and beautiful ceremonies that they had been to because of the insight it gave into our relationship and love for each other. And this is what sets Jenny apart from all of the other celebrants! In addition to all of the above, Jenny gave us the guidance and resources we needed to create the perfect ceremony for us, and was always responsive and accommodating to our needs. We are truly grateful to Jenny for making our ceremony a special one and we know that you will be too!

If you are looking for a no-fuss wedding but with a very personal touch - look no further than Jenny. She will take care of everything. She provided everything that we expected and some things that we didn't - which was a lovely surprise. Even our guests commented on it. All we had to do was complete a questionnaire and Jenny created a personalised ceremony for us based on the information we gave her. She obviously put a great deal of thought and effort into it and we are so appreciative. Thank you so much Jenny for helping make our wedding day so special - Trudy and Rob who married by the waterfall in the City Botanic Gardens.

Jenny, Thank you so much for a magical day yesterday! Graham and I loved our day and thought it was lovely how you made that happen for us. We were so moved by the little extras you did to make it happen. Thanks again for everything!! Kindest regards - Kelly and Graham  who came from Scotland for their elopement ceremony at Queens Beach North, Scarborough.

We enjoyed every minute of our ceremony and this has made us feel even closer as a family now. - Tracy & Jim who eloped from Sydney with their two children

It was everything that we had hoped it would be.  We had nothing but positive feedback from all of our guests about your performance and the ceremony. By way of comparison and completely without waspishness, the last wedding which we attended was in October 2011, in Queensland, with a female celebrant, and we have to say that in comparison we see that hers was basically bland as compared with your performance. Yours was exceptional.  We would not have had it done any other way nor with anybody else as celebrant. Thank you for making it a very special and fulfilling day for us and our families and friends. - Liz and Tony who married at the Summit Restaurant on Mt Coot-tha.

The whole ceremony was very moving and we felt you were very involved with us emotionally. Everyone present was moved and really enjoyed it, especially the unique touches you added. They could not believe we had only met you once and yet you seemed to have so much information about us.  We would happily recommend you to anyone who is planning to get married. All the best and thank you once again. - Martha and Julian, who married in and intimate wedding at the home of friends.

We asked Jenny for a simple ceremony that was no fuss yet still memorable to us and she delivered. We are so grateful that she took care in what we wanted but still added a little touch of her own magic to make our day one that we would never forget. Thank you for a beautiful day! We enjoyed every moment. Jenny created a ceremony that was unique for us and we didn't feel pressured into doing anything we didn't want to do. it was good that we could have a laugh as well, that was very important to us. - Terese and Dion who married in a quiet corner of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha.

                          commitment ceremony be comfortable, calm and competent, whilst being professional yet personal. These thoughts were proved during our first face-to-face meeting. Communication frequency was appropriate. We had given Jennifer specific ideas and expectations of her as a Celebrant and at no time were we disappointed with her suggestions and ideas and final product. The questionnaire gave us the opportunity to reflect as both a couple and as individuals and proved to be a great tool to both Jennifer and us in formalising the ceremony. Jennifer conducted the ceremony in such  manner allowing our love to shine. Barely a dry eye in the house our guests commented it was the best, most meaningful, personalised civil ceremony they have ever attended. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jennifer. We provide this testimonial with our heartfelt thanks. Kind regards and love Craig & James  who committed to one another in the presence of family and friends against a backdrop of gingham Bali flags in celebration of James' trademarked checked shirts. When Craig was saying his vows his spontaneous "Look at me, Kimmy" to James created the many magic moments in the ceremony. I felt enormously privileged to be part of the expression of the deep love these two share.

Just wanted say how wonderful yesterday's ceremony was - so many of our guests commented on how special and personal it was and that they really felt included. Thank you so much for everything and being the backbone of what made our day so perfect. We couldn't be happier! xoxo - Shaun and Chris who celebrated their union at Newstead House and incorporated both a ritual i created specially for them  that was designed to become a part of their daily lives and a surprise dove release.

It was all very relaxed and although we had never actually met before you made us all feel very at ease. it was fun but with the serious element where necessary. You did a brilliant job. You gave an extremely personal service, tried very hard - and succeeded - to find us the right tree! Dealing with paperwork was clear and given the proper amount of solemnity. Thanks again for helping to make it such a lovely memory for us. - Pam and Ken who came from the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland with the request that they be married under the largest tree possible. A fig tree was the logical choice.

Many thanks for the day... the ceremony was beautiful and everyone loved the way you did the ceremony - Glenn and Chiquita, who married in a Warm and Wonderful Weekday Ceremony in Newstead Park.

                              CramJenny, our sincere appreciation for the experience, care, thoughtfulness and intimacy you created for our wedding ceremony. The ceremony was thoughtful, loving, funny and much care was taken with the organisation. It made us feel very relaxed to be part of such a great atmosphere. It is truly a day that we will never forget. We have had so many positive comments from our guests about your personalised approach to creating a memorable and meaningful ceremony. Everyone felt so involved, and laughed and cried along with us. - Briohny and Bill who married in the Alumni Court at the University of Queensland. Photo courtesy of Sarah Starling Photography

We wish to express how lucky we were to have you as our marriage celebrant. We found that you helped us in all aspects. We have both been married before but I think because we were so young at the time we had forgotten a lot of things and this is where you talked to us and kept in touch by email pointing out little things that we both may need to look into to help us before the wedding and after. We recommend you to everyone. Thanks. You could not have made our day more pleasurable

                                Cram in their garden We chose you because we had seen you conducting the ceremony for our friends. We would like to thank you again for making our wedding day very special. The experience was undescribable. We were very nervous and excited but you made us comfortable during the ceremony.Thanks again for all your help, effort and for being a part of our wedding day! We super love your style and will definitely recommend you to our friends who are planning to get married. - Lyza and Calvin who married in their garden in a simple Warm and Wonderful Weekday Wedding. Their witnesses were Maria and Gerry whom I married a year ago, so it was also a happy reunion for their celebrant.

We were extremely happy at how the whole ceremony went. It was loving and thoughtful. The atmosphere that was set was relaxing and fun. We had a lot of our friends and family coming up to us after the ceremony telling us what an amazing job you did and that you made the ceremony. Everyone commented on how you set the scene and about the personal touches you put in the ceremony. You did a wonderful job and were an absolute joy to work with. Thank you for all your hard work and for all the care you put into making our wedding day one to truly remember. It was exactly what we were looking for our ceremony to be. - Catriona and Mark who married in a Scottish-themed ceremony at the historic Grand View Hotel in Cleveland.

Jennifer Cram is a shining example of excellence in her profession. Her ability to listen, ask the right questions and gently guide us produced the perfect ceremony. Every part of the ceremony was infused with Darren and my personalities. We have received countless comments from guests about our ceremony and their impression of Jenny, all glowing and very touching. I even had one friend say she was 'hanging on Jenny's every word. Jenny Cram helped make such perfect memories for all at our wedding. We are deeply indebted. -Jannine and Darren who incorporated a handfasting in their wedding at Tattersall's Club.
A year later Darren posted on Facebook  "Thanks Jen. My paper anniversary present was the vows you helped us create. Yay to you Jen."

                          officiated by Jennifer Cram, Brisbane Marriage
                          Celebrant
We've already registered a shining rating for you with the ABIA and want y ou to know that we should have your feedback form completed this week. We would like to write for you a glowing and authentic testimonial because we and also Terence and Dale were quite literally amazed at just how magical the ceremony you created for us turned out to be, and we feel that you deserve the best testimonial we can create to supplement the small amount of money your charged us for your splendid services.  Thanks again for a wonderful wedding that far exceeded our expectations. We both felt as if the experience somehow transformed us, our relationship, and our hearts. Testimonial: In all honesty we were merely looking for a registry marriage alternative when we were searching for a celebrant but boy were we in for a treat when we found Jenny Cram. The idea of getting married in a registry office seemed cold, robotic, and just downright uncomfortable so we opted to find a celebrant to marry us in a more relaxed atmosphere. Having never searched for a celebrant before we found that most treated the matter pretty much the same as the registry office would, the only difference being the backdrop, so we were very excited to find a celebrant who took to treating our prospective marriage with the same level of courtesy, consideration, and compassion as if we were a wealthy couple seeking the best kind of marriage money could buy. We were expecting a quick and regimented procedure but Jenny was very patient and thorough with us making sure we were clear and understanding of every detail and nuance of the process in the most painless and pleasurable manner we could have hoped for. What seemed like a confusing kaleidoscope of legal requirements was a smooth and easy experience under Jenny’s comfortable guidance. The day of our wedding was pure magic and on that day it became clear that Jenny was a passionate and seasoned professional dedicated to serving our marriage with the warmest reverence. We never imagined a minimalist wedding could be so special. We are forever grateful to Jenny for effortlessly transforming our marriage from what could have been an economy class experience into an unforgettable day of enchantment.  - Clint and Hyejin who married on a Tuesday (which the old rhyme suggests is good day to marry to ensure wealth) in a Warm and Wonderful Weekday Wedding at the Mt Coot-tha Lookout.

Jenny was extremely open and understanding of our unconventional circumstances from the beginning. She welcomed us into her home and impressed us with her vast knowledge and experience, not only to our ceremony but also with her knowledge regarding our different cultural heritages and the history of the local area. She also had fantastic ideas of how to incorporate her knowledge into our ceremony to make it unique to us. She remained constantly in touch with us throughout the planning process, always ready to bestow her wisdom, even encouraging us to be more romantic in our vows. On the day she was a calming presence and the way she took control made us feel like the day was in safe hands. Finally, her personal and intimate touch at the end of the ceremony was an incredible surprise, very touching and well beyond the call of duty. She was incredible and I would recommend her to other couples without a second thought. -  Gael and Ryan who  married Ryan in a early morning ceremony held in a beautiful bush setting. Just as the knots on the handfasting ribbons were being tied a  kookaburra  chorus started up, about which Ryan  commented on his facebook page  "It was one of the defining moments of my life - it was as if the birds were giving us their blessing. Thank you for a beautiful ceremony, we couldn't be happier!"

Dear Jennifer, Gavin and I just wanted to thank you for everything you did in creating such a perfect ceremony for us. Everything was wonderful. We could not have chosen a better celebrant to marry us! - Leisa and Gavin who married at Drevesen Park, Manly.

Dear Jennifer, Robin and I would like to thank you again for doing such an amazing job on Sunday. Our guests thought you were fantastic. A beautiful ceremony. Never been to a better wedding! It was just what we were looking for: - professionally conducted. We felt we were in good hands. Felt well and truly married afterwards! - Liat and Robin who married in an intimate ceremony on their verandah

My husband and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your wonderful efforts in performing our wedding ceremony. You were incredibly understanding and very accommodating with the unusual speed in which we organized the ceremony. You couldn't have performed better. It was incredibly heartfelt and emotional, full of fantastic personal touches that you organized to our pure delight. We were delighted by your heartfelt wishes of goodwill and your manner with our family. Everyone complimented us on your performance, and how they all felt you were already one of the family.

Jenny's ceremony was perfect in every way. Ivanna and I are from very different cultures and Jenny's ceremony was truly reflectant of that and it had a real international feel to it. The small personal touches made the ceremony so much more than a simple elopement. It was a beautiful ceremony which made for an unforgettable day. We gave Jenny very little input and from that she created a beautiful ceremony. It truly was more perfect than we could ever have hoped for. We will always remember our day with happiness and Jenny was a huge part in us achieving it.  - Ivanna and Tom who married in a Warm and Wonderful Weekday Wedding in a private home.

Dear Jenny, We want to sincerely thank you for being our wedding celebrant. We were so happy with how our ceremony turned out and we had lots of compliments from people who loved it. thank you for your professionalism and creativity, and for making the whole process stree-free and fun. You were great company for such a big occasion in our lives. Thanks again - Andrea and Andrew who married at the Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm, and included a wine ritual in their ceremony. Andrea's sister Lisa and brother-in-law Phil were part of the wedding party, and as I had been the celebrant for their wedding and for the wedding of close friends also at the ceremony it was a wonderful opportunity to catch up as well.

                          moment in their surprise wedding ceremony
                          conducted by Jennifer Cram, Brisbane
                          Celebrant Emily and Damien married in an early evening surprise wedding at the Toowong Rowing Club (guests were invited to an engagement party and on arrival were greeted by a large mirrored sign welcoming them to the wedding). The ceremony was very relaxed and generated lots of laughter. They posted the following comments on their Fac ebook pages: Thanks Jenny, the ceremony was better than we could have imagined. It was a perfect day - Damien. Thanks Jenny. It was awesome. We loved that the ceremony was down to earth and personal. If we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing!!! - Emily

We would not have done it without you, Jenny. You helped us through the preparation and guided us on the day. You made us both feel very comfortable, connected, happy, proud and relaxed on such an important day in our lives. Our friends and family still talk about feeling a rollercoaster of emotions on the day. They continue to this day to make several comments about it being the most beautiful ceremony they have ever attended. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Hugo and Daniel, who held their commitment ceremony at Spicers Hidden Vale, and included a unity wine ritual in the ceremony.

Hello Jennifer, I wanted to thank you for the lovely evening my wife and I had. It was truly a special night. My wife was still crying when she went home and read through the service you gave us and she intends to carry the stone in her bag. Thanks again for helping make our night special. Regards, Matt - who arranged for me to conduct a special 20th wedding anniversary celebratory ceremony as a surprise for his wife.

Testimonial from Stu and Katie, who married at Clear Mountain Lodge: [from the groom]: Initially I discounted the whole ceremonial process as just being something that was fixed and had to be performed out of legal and official necessity. This remained so even through the very helpful guided process of writing the basis of our content and vows, which was then transformed into something extraordinary by Jenny Cram. Even though I was impressed with the drafts leading up to the day, in my mind it was still part of the official process.
Jenny Cram totally reshaped my views about how special a wedding ceremony could be, and this became apparent for me on our wedding day. From the moment I was standing waiting for my future wife, I began to truly appreciate what Jenny had done. In creating this ceremony, Jenny had transformed something I thought was run of the mill stuff into something very personalized, and it changed the whole atmosphere of the wedding. I felt confident in Jenny where I was, under her friendly guidance, the guests were all engaged- in fact I felt they were emotionally connected with the proceedings. Jenny brought it all together and it made me feel like there was a whole other element to a wedding day that I had totally overlooked. I feel that this was the element that Jenny brought to our wedding. It could, very easily have been lost by anyone other than the most dedicated, professional and expert marriage celebrant.
[from the bride]:
Jenny, thank you so much for your commitment to crafting and facilitating exactly the kind of wedding ceremony we both wished for. Thank you for making my husband and I feel special and for upholding our vision of a relaxed, enjoyable, meaningful and personal ceremony free of waffle, cut-and-paste, and staid traditions. I could not have believed that our wedding ceremony could have been so beautiful, even though I had chosen you as our celebrant because of your professionalism, excellent feedback and gleaming testimonials. I loved the process of information gathering, and the time you took to get to know us and our story. I will treasure the memories of our wedding ceremony forever. Thank you.

Hi Jenny, Just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you how much we loved the ceremony you held for us.  The touch of the stone really meant a lot to us and we see how much effort you went for us. We couldn't have asked for a nicer celebrant and ceremony and that we will ever be appreciative to you for this.  I will be sure to send back our feedback and also when we receive the photos from the photographer, I will send you a copy.  Go raibh mile maith aige!!!  Thanks a million in Irish.  Warm regards - Antoinette & Robert who eloped in a Warm and Wonderful Weekday Wedding in Newstead Park. They later send this feedback The overall experience was calm, peaceful, and joyous with no anxiety, due to your personality and experience. We were both very pleased with everything.

Hello Jenny, Georgina and I wanted to express again our gratitude for all your work before and on our wedding day. Your vision and insight into what was possible made the day special and unique. As I am sure you observed, everyone was deeply moved by the ceremony. We could not have asked for anything more and we both have a memory that we will cherish. - Wayne and Georgina, who married in the Stradbroke Pavilion at the Grand View Hotel, Cleveland Point, in a ceremony that was very different from the traditional wedding, involving lots of tears, lots of champagne, and lots of laughter.

Hi Jenny, Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding ceremony you performed for us last Saturday. So many of our friends and family commented on what a moving, beautiful and unique wedding ceremony it was that was enjoyable, funny and so meaningful, with many of them saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to.  All of our engaged friends have asked for you card, so I'm sure you will be hearing from them soon! Our parents loved it and to see the tears in Tony's Dad's eyes when you were reading the tribute to the parents was so heartwarming for us and meant so much as this man is not a cryer. It was absolutely perfect for us, represented us so accurately as a couple and was exactly what we dreamed of. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Right from our first conversation you made me feel at ease and helped us every step of the way to create and develop the amazing ceremony it was, it was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you so much for the way you dealt with the bit of a hiccup with the late start and everything, with all our guest saying you made them feel comfortable and lightened the mood with your humor and kindness.  And thank you so much for the wonderful "tieing the knot" ritual.  What a lovely surprise! Everyone commented on how beautiful it was.  It was such a lovely way to get the kids involved and we'll have that as a keepsake from our wedding forever. - Laura and Tony, who married in the Butterfly Garden at Redlands Indigiscapes Centre.

Ali reading her love letterDear Jenny, We'll do all this properly later, but I just wanted to send an early vote of thanks for the wonderful job you did for our wedding. Many, many people came up to us during the evening and said it was the best wedding they'd been to, or the most personal, or the most apt - and we wouldn't have been able to have done that without your experience, guidance, wisdom and wit. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks again for getting us off to such a good start. Cheers- Chris who married Ali in the Great Hall at Brisbane Grammar School.

Jennifer Cram is a top class celebrant. We would recommend her to anyone. She made our wedding a day to remember. Each stage of the organisation of our wedding was seamless and relatively stress free. We were very comfortable with everything every step of the way. You were very efficient at all times and especially in the way that you responded to emails very quickly and you provided helpful advice and information when we needed it. You always had a friendly and professional approach. The wedding day itself went without a hitch, thanks to your excellent organisational skills and we were very impressed how you delivered the ceremony. The surprise at the ceremony was a lovely touch. The marriage certificate and handbook were both beautifully presented. We were very happy with everything. - Chantal and Graham who came from England to celebrate their marriage at Flying Duck in the Roma Street Parklands in a ceremony that featured beautiful Australian native and flowersincluded their daughter and Chantal's sister.

Hi Jenny, Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding! EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect – you co-ordinated everything just briliiantly. All through the night you were the topic of discussion – every guest we had was raving about how the ceremony was the best they’d ever attended, full of laughs and tears. Normally people switch-off during ceremonies (well, I do anyway!) because they can be a little borinKathy

                                Jennifer Cram, Brisbane Celebrantg, dull and predictable, but it was quite obvious that everyone was engaged and waiting to hear what was coming up next. Comments were things like “I’ve never laughed so hard in a ceremony before!” and “Jenny created the ceremony as if she was telling a story, including the audience and keeping everyone interested” and “she really set the mood for the whole evening”.  My Mum couldn’t stop singing your praise! She was so touched that she was included in the ceremony (thanks to your suggestion about including them!) and she said that you did an absolutely amazing job in every aspect. She was really REALLY impressed and started tearing up again at how you made the day so perfect. My Dad (who is normally a man of few words) just wouldn’t stop talking about you. The most interesting thing he said was “She did a better job than any priest could do”. He also said that “She’s not a ‘normal’ celebrant, she’s brilliant.” OK so that comment is a little mean to other celebrants, but you get the point right, he regards you as the best. He said that your ceremony made him so proud and emotional and that you really delivered just a wonderful, wonderful ceremony.  All your hours of work you did Jenny, with the paperwork before and after the ceremony, your prompt responses to our Qs via email, all the work and practice you would have done for the ceremony itself, the ceremony book, the slideshow surprise and for all your personal touches and co-ordination of the ceremony is just so over-and-above what a stock-standard celebrant offers. Thanks again, Jenny. - Kath and Cam who held their ceremony at Walkabout Creek.

Kelly & LucasThank you for a wonderfully unique and intimate ceremony. It was all we could have ever asked for. Everyone has commented on the ceremony was "us", unique, and the best wedding they had attended. I loved how our friends and family were
incorporated into the ceremony, making them part of the day not just bystanders of an event. - Kelly and Lucas who married at River Terrace Park.

Love Ben and Hannah who eloped with a few friends and a dog on Norfolk Point at Manly.

We could not have found a more friendly, down to earth celebrant. At first the whole experience was daunting and nerve-wracking, however we both felt comfortable with you and you were always there to guide us through and help make the ceremony a happy and special occasion. You guided us through not only the legal requirements, but also through the planning of the ceremony. We found your ceremony to be personal and romantic and you helped make all the guests feel included. It was truly a unique ceremony, delivered by a truly unique woman. Thank you for everthing, Jennifer :-) - Sarah and Lauance,  who held their Warm and Wonderful Weekday marriage ceremony in the Chapel at the Kholo Botanic Gardens

We are both very happy in our new life together and thank you for your part in making the beginning of our journey together very memorable. it is a day we will never forget.

Many of those said it was the most intimate, fun and relaxed wedding they have ever witnessed. We particularly loved how the ceremony reflected our core values and our feelings towards each other and those close to us. For this, we are very grateful for your service and guidance on our wedding day.
Testimonial: We could not have wished for a more tailored, beautiful, and memorable wedding ceremony. It felt intimate even with 110 guests! Jennifer was professional yet so personable and ensured that all elements, legal and meaningful, were included. At no point did we ever have to worry as it was all taken cared of so wonderfully. We felt like the ceremony perfectly reflected us and our feelings and values. Thank you for helping shape such a special part of our lives together.
- Lena and Julian who exchanged their vows at Hillstone St Lucia.

Hi Jenny,  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a beautiful and perfect ceremony. So many of our guests were commenting all night that it was the best ceremony they have ever attended - we had people saying that they usually hate weddings but loved this one. It was perfect for them.  More importantly, it was perfect for us. We couldn't believe it was possible to be more happy than we were, but we are.  We cannot find the words to express our gratitude.  Lots of Love, Hilary and Rod - who  married at dusk in a candlelit ceremony against a background of bird calls and great acoustic guitar music.
