We have had many comments telling us what an incredible job you did.

RosemaryRachel & Alex February 2022
"I have been following Jacie for years, hoping that 1 day we could ask her to join us in celebrating our love.
When we first met with Jacie Whitfield, she was exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant, chatty, easy to get along with and funny.
She offered us 5 mins to discuss what we wanted to do and we didn't need 5 seconds before saying "YES".
Jacie gave us a ceremony, we & our guests will remember forever, I don't think I have laughed that much, during a time I have been so nervous, Jacie is amazing, caring & admirable, I could not imagine my wedding day without her. "

Marina & Daniel February 2022

Dave & Nic 2020
"We recently had our small wedding with Jacie. She was amazing. She listened to our thoughts and feelings. She made some great suggestions, which we utilised and they made our day perfect. Jacie delivered the exact service we asked for and all our guests commented on how perfect it was. Jacie had some great ideas on vendors to use and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Thanks Jacie. I highly recommend Jacie and will be happy to use her again for future events."
Kendall & Jonathan 2020
"Jacie was an absolute dream to work with. She has a wealth of knowledge and is extremely detail oriented ( so important in wedding planning). Every meeting/conversation we had was very productive. Jacie asked every question for every situation to ensure there were no surprises on the day. On top of her attention to detail, organisation and depth of knowledge, Jacie is also fun and personable.

On the day I could sit back, relax and trust that everything was under control.

Jacie made our day absolutely perfect and memorable and we’ll never be able to thank her enough. I highly recommend Jacie and thank her for her incredible work on our wedding."

Jeff & Elisha 12 December 2020
"Exceptional, faultless, unique- don't bother looking anywhere else, Jacie is your dream celebrant.

From first contact to the signing of the wedding certificate, Jacie’s genuine love of her job and what she does exudes from every fibre.

The personalised service just can't be beat, thank you again so much for conducting your beautiful bespoke wedding for my big brother and his bride."

Kelly on behalf of Darren & Jasmine October 2020
"We chose Jacie because she presented as an experienced and confident celebrant, offering highly personalized service.

Her organization and direction around what to do greatly benefitted us.

Interactions with Jacie were always confident, no stress and exciting.

The personalization required a lot of Jacie’s time in the lead up, that’s what we paid for and we’re totally happy we received value.

People working with Jacie need to be prepared to invest in time to give her material. How much clients get out of the ceremony on the day, will depend on how much time they invest in providing Jacie with content.

We felt we were in a 100% safe pair of hands and Jacie honestly personalized our ceremony and delivered on what she said she would and what we wanted."

Linda & Ed September 2020
"I highly recommend Jacie. My husband and I bought our wedding forward due to personal reasons. We cannot thank Jacie enough, she was so accommodating and very responsive to our needs given the short time frame. Jacie is great at what she does, she's professional and listens to your needs. Jacie made our ceremony so personal and memorable. Thank you for going above and beyond. We are so glad we chose you to share in our special day."
Mel & Clint 2020
"Jacie, you clearly care about what you do and the people you marry. It shines through and made us and the family feel at ease. You have a great style, you care and connect, and we enjoyed your caring, personalized, unique and easy manner which made us feel at ease and like we known you for a long time.

You wowed us with the creating of our vows and involvement with the kids-our vows really related to us and kept the real/fun parts in there which was fab!

You spent a lot of time and effort in the run up and drafting our vows. The questionnaire worked really well, and you asked key questions that you could feed in to the ceremony/vows.

In recommending you to others we say that you are caring, professional and experienced. You gave the personalised touch yet kept it real with a little the wow factor we didn't even know we wanted!

WE LOVED IT!!! Thank you"

Dan & Becky 2021
"Hi Jacie
Thank you so much for creating a beautiful ceremony filled with love, laughter and tears we can’t thank you enough. With the small ceremony we could have we had great feedback back from our loved ones with how beautiful the ceremony was they have not been to a wedding with such a personalised service and absolutely enjoyed it. Thank you so much and looking forward to doing this all again next year hopefully with hugs next time."

Sam & Russell 2021
"Jacie, you (through your website and our interview with you) simply felt different. Everything felt warm and unique when researching you as compared with others we saw.

The very name of your company really says it all and fit our personalities to a tee.  We absolutely wanted bespoke or else we probably would have asked the celebrant to only do the minimum and we would have done the rest ourselves. Your business name says it all, you do bespoke ceremonies!  The ceremony you wrote for us, reflected us as a couple,  how we see ourselves as well as how others see us. We had so many people who not only complimented the ceremony but said it was "so us" & that they had never seen anything like it! What more could we ask for?

The sense of anticipation of seeing what you had put together.  We knew that all of our friends/relatives had answered the questionnaires and we knew we each had also done so - it was just so great to see the draft ceremony come to us and read how it was weaved together. We loved the way you pulled everything together from the various testimonials written by and about us and weaved a story out of it. We most loved watching everyone's faces as the funniest lines got mentioned!

The most important things people should know about working with you is that you will always be responsive when questions are asked and that people need to simply have faith that the product will be there and be good."

Seth & Michelle Nov 2019
"Jacie’s services are almost indescribable. She truly gave us the opportunity to personalise our ceremony with tears, humour, touching sentiments and even a little crass language!

Jacie is an absolute pleasure to deal with and we could not have chosen a better person to marry us.

An amazing, memorable experience for our guests as well, they haven’t stopped talking about how much they loved her work!

Would recommend highly to anyone looking to take their ceremony to the next level!

Thank you Jacie for making the best day of our lives just that little bit more special."

Claudia & Perry 2019
"Jacie, we were both absolutely blown away with what you created for our wedding. It was even better than we had imagined and all of our guests have been talking about it since.
Many have commented it was the best wedding ceremony they have been to, I will always recommend you in the future to anyone who will listen.
For Dane and I the most important thing was that the wedding day, and what was spoken about at the ceremony, reflected who we are and you did that just perfectly.
Having a laugh, speaking about what and who are special to us, ripping each other off, and also blending in so much love. There was the perfect amount of laughter and tears.
I couldn’t have imagined our day any better and thanks to you we will always look back on such a special moment and smile.
If I could rate you 100 stars I would! For many reasons, I am sad it’s all over and done with now, but one of those main reasons is because we had a ball talking to you!"

Dane & Sammy 2019
"Jacie, you were absolutely fantastic, and we could not recommend you higher.
You are professional, personable, an eloquent speaker and made us feel well assured.
You delivered a fantastically, engaging ceremony that our family and friends said was the best ceremony they had ever seen. You individualised our ceremony which meant the entire ceremony was relevant, meaningful, personal, funny and engaging.
Hiring you was well worth the price, especially considering the effort you went to, to write the ceremony and collect responses so that our family and friends were included.
Thank you so much for all the work that you have done to make our ceremony as perfect as it was. We loved it so much and we are so grateful to have had you as our celebrant."

Bryte & Freya 2019
"From the first time we met you at your beautiful home in Nelson Bay with your gorgeous dog by your feet we both knew you were the person to unite us as one on our wedding day.
You contacted our family members and special people and asked them questions that they could answer so easily and freely, to ensure you were able to learn about Jeff and I.
From the correspondence to the rehearsal it was always so easy and well thought out.
The rehearsal was a great idea and giving everyone a job made it even better, less stressful and put my mind at ease for the big day to follow. The ceremony was incredibly written, laughing from us, our loved ones and people are still commenting about how great the ceremony was to this day. Thank you for making us feel so special and help us with all the words we have always wanted to say to each other on our wedding day. We appreciate everything you have done for us.
Would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a celebrant with flare."

Jeff & Bec 2019
"How do we even begin to thank this exceptionally talented and beautiful lad, our celebrant, Jacie?
From the moment we met you, we knew we had to have you - you were just like us, chill, cheesy, a little weird and everything in between.
Everyone that was at our wedding commented on how it was the best wedding they have ever been to, this would not of been possible if we didn’t have you delivering the best ceremony ever. There were so many tears and laughs but mostly they were combined with crying whilst laughing at the same time. I saw people cry that I have never seen cry before. I mean, how can anyone forget the epic moment when Shaun’s brother, Mitchell and his mum were mentioned. A solid two minutes of laughing before you could move on!
You made our ceremony personal, it was about us and our loved ones, as it should be. There were no boring and generic moments with people wishing the ceremony would hurry up and end, I actually feel like people didn’t want it to end. Jacie, we are so privileged that you were a part of our day. It would not of been the day it was without you. For anyone wanting a down-to-earth, amazing celebrant who will create an absolutely outstanding ceremony specifically designed for you, you cannot go past Jacie! Thanks again lovely lady! "

Mr & Mrs Coombes
"The ceremony Jacie conducted for us was amazing, it was the best wedding ever!
Jacie’s words, her ability to get meaningful words out of us and making Mark cry during the ceremony were standouts.
The fact she paddled out and learnt how to surf showed how flexible, daring, considerate, catering and caring Jacie is. Everything was perfect for us"

Mark & Suellen Dec 2018
"Jacie is amazing!! We knew from the beginning we wanted a ceremony that was not your stock standard. We wanted this part of our day to be equally as fun and special as the rest of our wedding. Jacie ensured this happened! The information she gathered from our nearest then intertwined into our story was incredible. So many guests commented on how different and great the ceremony was. We felt so comfortable too, the entire bridal party commented on how comfortable it all was after meeting Jacie the day prior to run over things! we can't thank Jacie enough and would recommend 100%."
Jess & Damo Dec 2018
"Many of our guests commented that our ceremony was uniquely memorable, refreshingly funny and personal... We feel the same, no bias of course! ;-)

Thank you Jacie for being so wonderful and creative. You're a legend and one hell of a celebrant!"

Sarah & Alex 2018
"Jacie crafted a beautiful ceremony that really captured the essence of us as a couple. She was really personal and the perfect combination of heart felt and laughter. Many of our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had been to. She made sure to talk to and get contributions from all the most important people to us. Her experience, suggestions and heartfelt words put everyone at ease, particularly those with roles to play and truly made it a magical experience for us. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough."
Brooke & Scott 2018

Linda & Tim 2018
"WOW! Where do we start... Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Jacie, what an amazing ceremony... everyone loved it! We are so glad we opted out of the norm and made it personal! Your words meant so much to us and so many of our wedding party... we can’t thank you enough! We felt relaxed the whole way through... just knowing you had it all covered. You definitely did kick off one epic wedding!"
Jo & Fraser 2018
"Jacie is absolutely beyond amazing! Her ceremonies are creative, intimate, emotional and hysterical wrapped up in one. All our guests were tearing up & laughing and commented how beautiful the ceremony was and not your standard script. Even our friend who's relative is a celebrant commented how amazing it was.

We can't thank Jacie enough with how personal she made it by addressing our bridal party and parents in the ceremony as well. It's very well thought out and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to go that step in making their ceremony that little bit extra special."

Beau & Dean 2018
"Thank you Jacie for writing such a beautiful and personalised ceremony for us. We love that you took the time to get to know us, our nearest and dearest and included them in the ceremony. So many guests commented about how well you delivered, especially considering the extreme weather we had. Thank you again for writing our hilarious but sentimental/ soppy ceremony and travelling down to the Blue Mountains for us. Jacie was very professional and delivered a very well written ceremony that made our ceremony so special. Despite the miserable weather we had, she did a fantastic job! Highly recommend her."
Mel & Kain 2018
"Where to begin! Thank you so much for our absolutely amazing ceremony! The way you made each and every member of the bridal party feel special left us floored. Guest after guest coming up and saying that was the best ceremony they had ever been to is a testament to your skill and dedication to producing such a beautiful ceremony. You made our day that much more special so thank you from the bottom of our hearts we appreciate everything you did for us. If you are looking for a celebrant then look no further than Jacie and I Do bespoke Ceremonies. Absolutely Amazing!"
Misty & Jesse 2018
"Jacie, you are an absolute breath of fresh air. You crafted the most amazing, genuine and funny ceremony for us. We cannot thank you enough for everything from start to finish. With the easiest prep, well explained rehearsal, and then our day, you were so easy to deal with. You made the process so stress free. We loved how you gathered information from all our close friends and filmy which made for an intimate and personal service. So many people commented that it was the best wedding ceremony they had been to! Thank-you so so very much from the bottom of our heart. We want to get married again just have to the ceremony again!"
Kristen & Angus 2018
"Jacie crafted a beautiful ceremony for Sam and I. Throughout the whole process we felt we were in good hands and we were blown away with how she wove stories from our nearest and dearest into our ceremony. The attention to detail was superb and we would highly recommend her to any couples looking for a highly individualised and intimate ceremony.

Thank you again Jacie for being such an invaluable part of our special day."

Candis & Sam 2018
"Jacie created such a unique, funny and touching ceremony for us. All our guests commented on it being one of the best (and often the best!) ceremonies they had attended. Jacie blends humour with sentimentality and does a lot of research into you as individuals to make a memorable and personal ceremony. Adam was particularly impressed at her research into his childhood gaming obsessions! If you are looking for a ceremony that is enjoyable for everyone, distinctive and heartfelt, I would highly recommend her! Thank you, Jacie. xx"
Harriet & Adam October 2018
"Dear Jacie,
If you want a Wedding Ceremony that is funny, loving, entertaining, and overall absolutely amazing then look no further than Jacie as your Wedding Celebrant. Jacie was absolutely wonderful from start to finish in everything she did with us. Our wedding guests were astounded by the Ceremony and we have continually had comments about the Ceremony being the best they have been to. Jacie you are amazing and Mark and I cannot thank you enough."

Cait & Mark October 2018
"WJacie was amazing to work with. From the beginning she was prompt on return email, and had answers for all our questions. She is experienced and professional and able to provide useful advice knowing what works yet creating a ceremony that was meaningful and uniquely for us! It has been said before, but it's true - we had guests commenting all night on how awesome our ceremony was and the best they'd been to. We can't thank Jacie enough! "
Celeste & Tim September 2018
"What do we say when it was above and beyond. This time last week 18.09.18 Jacie married us and it was one of the best days we had from the time she sent us the first draft she had us in tears to the actual day which we were swimming in tears lol Our bridal party and guests were all left speechless with what Jacie had created for our ceremony. We fell in love with Jacie from the first day we met her and could not have changed anything. Secretly wishing we can go back and do it all over again lol we recommend Jacie so let her work her magic to create your special day."
Mr & Mrs Hromadzic September 2018
"Dear Jacie,
Jacie went above and beyond our expectations and surpasses what any other celebrant does or seems to offer. She took time to ask us personalized questions, sit down and interview us in a relaxed casual setting even before we committed to using her services. She spent hours drafting then redrafting a very personalized ceremony, crafted extremely personalized vows-written so much better than we could have ever done ourselves, chased up emails with another 10+ people as well as keeping up with typical celebrant duties. Jacie is definitely worth the higher price.

Jacie made everyone laugh, cry and feel all the warm fuzzy feels in-between. We got multiple compliments from quite a few of our guests afterwards on the ceremony content. They loved the uniqueness and personal content you brought just as much as we did. Jacie provides a ceremony full of personality, laughter, and insight into the couple under the spotlight.

Our guests said “That was the best wedding I've ever attended", "Loved your vows, did you write them?" , "it was so good to see your own personal touch in the wedding ceremony too". We actually got those last few comments a lot and about the ceremony in general. We had to explain that we and our friends provided you with a lot of the information, but we didn’t actually craft it into the nicely flowing story – it was your skills that did this. I think it’s a testament to how personable you made it, that many people thought it was written by us because it did have such a strong “Sam and Alan” vibe about it.

Jacie is a fun, open minded, ever-improving celebrant who will adore getting to know you.

Our advice-Do it. Go with Jacie! #noregrets #justdoit #wortheverycent

Trust Jacie’s ability to craft something unique right from the start, and also ask your people to put the effort into answering the questions.

Be prepared for all of your weird friends and family to contribute their own unique thoughts to create a masterpiece of a ceremony which is simply stunning, jaw dropping and hilariously fun to watch people react to. Jacie’s ability to weave seemingly small thoughts and comments from the couple and from friends into meaningful parts of the ceremony is something special, and makes for a ceremony full of smiles and laughter."

Sam & Alan April 2018
"Dear Jacie,
Words can’t describe how wonderfully perfect yesterday was! It was so real and so us. It was honestly one of the best days of my life. I am so glad we had you to make it perfect. You are so genuine and warm, you made the WHOLE experience so easy.

Every person that I spoke to yesterday and last night raved about how it was “the best ceremony I have seen in my entire life” or “I have never laughed so hard at a wedding”.

You honestly with those vows and the entire ceremony made me fall in love with Adam all over again.

Thank you thank you thank you for making the long awaited marriage between us be so bloody perfect!

You will hold a special place in our heart forever."

Lizzie & Adam March 2018
"Dear Jacie,
We felt an immediate connection with Jacie and felt comfortable being in her reassuring hands. Our ceremony was very detailed and engaging and we loved how she tied our son into our ceremony is such a special and unique way. Jacie obviously loves her job and is fun, easy going, proactive and a good listener. You have to have Jacie as your celebrant-the real Batman says so!"

Kim & Niall March 2018
"Dear Jacie,
We wanted our ceremony to be the most memorable part of our wedding day, and with you as the celebrant and the wonderful ceremony you created, it was.  I have never heard a ceremony like ours and it was perfect.

A lot of people commented on how particular aspects of the ceremony reflected us or reminded them of us, but my favourite comment was from my uncle who said that he had not heard anyone use the English language like that and how great it was. We were most impressed by how you wrote our whole ceremony and our vows were particularly amazing.  Since we are in a long-distance relationship it was great to have you coordinating the information from us and our family and friends for the ceremony, and it was a special moment reading the ceremony for the first time together when you sent it through to us.

In addition to undertaking the formalities required for registration of a marriage, you distil the essences, friendships, relationships and love which has gone into each individual there to be married, as well as the love story of the couple, and create a unique ceremony which reflects the memories of your shared history as well as the hopes for your shared future in equal measure. Your process has an element of pre-marital counselling to it which sneaks up on you but which is a valuable part of the service you provide. We would very much so recommend your services!"

Emilia & Spencer December 2017
"Dear Jacie,
You did such an excellent job marrying us! Our ceremony script was amazing, it made all our guests laugh and it was so fun and touching. Our guests spoke very highly of the ceremony and you. We would recommend you to anyone who wants a ceremony that is lighthearted and tailor made. You were so professional and responsive and we couldn't have asked for a better celebrant than you"

Cynthia & Andrew 2017
"Dear Jacie,
We chose you above other celebrants because you were friendly and welcoming. We trusted you to cater to our needs and we loved how personalised and fun you made our ceremony and vows. Our family and friends spoke highly of our ceremony saying it was unlike any other! We think you are super creative and thank you for providing a service that encapsulated us as a couple."

April & Jae April 2017
"We chose everything about our wedding to reflect our wish to include those who have been closest to us over the years of our lives. We wanted it small and intimate, a close sharing of who we each have been and who we are now and who we hope to be.

Jacie understood that and asked the participants to record special moments and memories that she wove into the ceremony so that each of those present was able to 'speak' to us about what they most cherished about being part of our lives.

That was her part as gatherer of reminiscences and milestones as they'd woven themselves into the way our lives had intertwined over the years, and she did it beautifully, because Marcus and I are, after all, have come together as the sum of all these things. These are the things that have made us who we are, and in giving us these memories, all those present received in return the knowledge that somehow we were all part of a shared life, ours and theirs. Jacie, with a wonderful sense of humour and a keen eye for telling detail, gave us all a wonderful story we will always remember as the thing that underpinned the spirit of our wedding.

We loved hearing and seeing our family and friends laugh at all the different ways in which our relationship became a reality and have them go on the journey that brought us to the very spot that we were being married. It is a memory and an experience that is forever etched in our memories and we are so lucky to have had Jacie as the beautiful, eloquent, wonderful soul who was able to bind not only our lives but the lives of our nearest and dearest together.

We are forever grateful. Perfect!"

Marcus & Chiara April 2017
"Dear Jacie,
Everything you did was above our expectations, you and your services are fantastic and worth every cent! Our family and friends said they could listen to you deliver our ceremony again and longer. You really go out of your way to get to know a couple and personalise their ceremony. You are friendly, helpful, creative and what you see is really what you get!"

Mr. & Mrs. Henderson 13.3.2017
"Dear Jacie,
We saw you at our cousins wedding and loved what you did for them so when it came to choosing our celebrant, we were already confident in your ability to make our ceremony perfect. You are outstanding, you made the ceremony fun for everyone- that's where the greatest value was for us.
A lot of guests commented on how personal you made the service, it was if you had been friends with us for years. We loved that you did everything we asked of you and we appreciated your unique and very entertaining style which made our ceremony the best that any of our guests have ever seen!"

Mr. & Mrs. Frew 11.3. 2017
"Dear Jacie,
We choose you over other celebrants because of your originality, personality, enthusiasm, attention to detail and awesomeness. We loved that we were involved in writing our ceremony which resulted in an unforgettable, genuine experience that we appreciated and our guests hailed as the best wedding ceremony they'd ever attended. The ceremony you wrote for us was personal, intimate and funny and it reflected us beyond the surface. Thank you,"

Nathan & Zoe 18.2.2017
"Dear Jacie, We honestly thought no one listened or paid attention at weddings however everyone loved your ceremony and could quote parts of it -particularly those involving food! You are kind and wonderful to work with and you truly made us feel special on our big day!
All our stress was taken away- even the concerns we had around writing our vows and you wrote them better than we ever could!

If you want a personal, special, one of a kind ceremony call Jacie-she will leave you feeling excited, relaxed and like you have caught up with an old friend."

Mr. & Mrs. Rogers August 2016
"Dear Jacie,
Our ceremony was perfect, our family and friends said it was moving and extremely thoughtful. We loved your personal touch, the way you care, listened to our needs and how at ease you made us feel.

We loved how you made special moments in the ceremony about my Father and we valued the way you included our children and personalised our vows to each other. You certainly create a beautiful, unique service and we recommend anyone getting married book you! We love you!"

Ben & Simonne A. August 2016
"Dear Jacie,
Our ceremony was the first thing our guests spoke about. They were in awe and though it was excellent!
We especially loved our personal vows and the way you made people realise how they actually feel about love ones and evoked emotion at the right time. We couldn't have pictured our wedding any better!"

Mr. & Mrs. Garland September 2016
"Thank you so much for making our wedding such a wonderful day! You are a very talented and beautiful person and you have an amazing ability to write and deliver ceremonies. Our friends and family thought our ceremony was brilliant and so personal. We thoroughly enjoyed everything that you put together for us!"
Mr. & Mrs. Relf
"Dear Jacie,
Our family and friends said the ceremony you wrote for us was fantastic and unique. They have never heard anything like it! Every part of our ceremony was memorable it's own way.
Thank you for the thoroughness of your approach and for integrating our personal stories and memories."

Mr. & Mrs. Hazlewood October 2016
"Dear Jacie,
We were confident that we were making the right decision in choosing you as our celebrant after seeing your YouTube video and meeting you. We thought you were professional, informative and creative and our family and friends said you were confident, funny, happy and lovely.
We loved the original handwritten ceremony that you wrote which was heartwarming, funny and emotional. It touched everyone's hearts."

Luke & Jess November 2016
"Dear Jacie,
After attending other weddings, we knew that choosing our celebrant was an important decision and investment and we honestly can't think of anything that needed improving with you. Your attention to detail and customisation was outstanding and well worth the money.
Family and friends mentioned you were fabulous and said they loved our ceremony.
You are truly passionate and it shows! Thank you."

Michael & Megan November 2016
"Dear Jacie,
From the start of our experience with you everything felt easy and under control. We enjoyed our entire ceremony and appreciated that it involved all the people we love the most. It certainly wasn't boring because everyone was raving on about it!

Our guests were paying attention the whole time because of your intriguing, personal, different and entertaining approach. You surpassed all our expectations and we look forward to you marrying many of our extensive family."

Tash & Alex November 2016
"Dear Jacie,
We didn't really know what we wanted with regards to our ceremony however you smashed it out of the ballpark- everyone commented that it was the best wedding ceremony they had been to. You were so professional and easy to work with! Thanks again Jacie."

Lauren & Mark 2016
"Having previously involved in one of your ceremonies, we loved the way that you craft each ceremony in a way that includes the bride and groom and also the bridal party and parents. We also liked the unique touches you add in and the way you are able to keep the audience engaged and give them a glimpse into our relationship. We have had such positive feedback about our ceremony from family and friends who have said that they have never seen a ceremony performed this way before. Everyone that we have spoken to, keeps saying how it was such an emotional yet at the same time, entertaining ceremony and we've had people who don't usually cry during weddings or at all for that matter, say how they didn't stop crying throughout this one! One guest had to use the bottom of her dress to wipe the tears as she didn't come prepared to cry! They also commented on your professionalism and the clear way in which you presented the ceremony. We would say that you take a vastly different approach to crafting a ceremony and that the one of a kind service you get is certainly one that will exceed people's expectations."
Shelley & David 5.11.2016
"Thank you for giving us an amazing wedding, it was perfect for us and our guests said that it was the most unique, funny, best wedding that they’ve ever been to. Your friendly, approachable personality and personal and unique approach to ceremonies made us enjoy everything.
Our advice is to go with Jacie!"

Trent & Erin 26.3.2016
"Dear Jacie, From the first time we met you, we both genuinely liked you and we were excited to work with you. We absolutely loved how inclusive you made our ceremony, it was about us and all of our guests and just the way we wanted it to be!
We really loved all the personal touches and that we weren't just another couple you were marrying. Everything you wrote was so special and it made our day incredible -you absolutely nailed it! All of our family and friends said you are the best celebrant they had witnessed. You are extremely professional, the real deal and a pleasure to work with-your love for what you do shows in the ceremonies you create. What Jacie does is really an art.
We can't thank her enough for the hilarious, honest, emotional and unforgettable ceremony she created for us. She really is a unique talent and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone."
Gav & Jen August 2016
Celebrant Hunter Valley
"If you want a ceremony that is more personalised and want someone that will enable you to provide your own input and touch, then we recommend Jacie. Jacie is professional, friendly and thorough and made us feel comfortable about creating the ceremony we wanted. She tailored our ceremony to our reserved style and was understanding of our wants, making us feel "less awkward". Our guests said Jacie was excellent and they were impressed with her efficiency and professionalism."
Mr & Mrs Smith August 2016
Celebrant Hunter Valley
"Jacie was amazing! All her effort showed in the ceremony and how it was written and delivered. We loved the comedy, our vows and our guests said it was the best ceremony that they've been to. Jacie sure knows what she's doing! We felt like we had known Jacie for a lifetime and she gave us a day we will never forget!"

Celebrant Hunter Valley
"Jacie became a friend because she is completely involved and dedicated to making the most perfect day. Jacie gave us a completely unique, utterly romantic ceremony. Jacie wants to create something that is all about the couple using creative and beautiful language. She is incredibly professional, covers all bases and was quick to process everything. There is a lot of homework for you and your friends however it is totally needed and so worth it so do your homework and tell your friends about their homework. Everyone said it was the best wedding that they had ever been to!"
Kylie and Juz 11/6/16

"Your amazing personality when we met and your suggestions regarding how to put together our ceremony made us choose you over all others. The contacts you gave us for photographer, catering and DJ took all the guess work out. The ceremony was perfect for us and truly represented our personalities. You can trust Jacie to provide an amazing experience and she is so easy to work with. We will cherish those moments forever!"

Celebrant Hunter Valley
"We chose Jacie because she had a relatable personality, experience, knowledge and she offered great value for money. It felt as though Jacie was an old friend and that Jacie was there from the start to the end of our formalities. She knows what works and what doesn’t and she really committed to getting to know us and suggest fun ways to capture us, our friends and family perfectly. We couldn’t be happier!"

She went above and beyond to make our day special and fun and our guests said they had never been to such an amazing ceremony. They loved how different it was.

Celebrant Hunter Valley
"Jacie is the best celebrant, she was worth every penny! We are still getting great feedback from our guests saying that our ceremony was sensational, fabulous and that Jacie did a fantastic job. Jacie sets herself apart from others by how she articulates her words and puts together the content gained from her questionnaires. She described us perfectly and we felt confident that Jacie had everything under control from the start."
Duncan and Sharde 27/2/2016
Celebrant Hunter Valley
"Jacie produces a very high calibre of work and has the ability to take what we think and feel and articulate it with her beautiful words. Couples using Jacie’s services need to have faith that she will deliver great work and so must trust her entirely-she is worth every cent for the personalised service. We felt Jacie was able to tailor our ceremony including our friends and family mixing it with the perfect amount of humour and sincerity. Our guests really enjoyed our ceremony, they thought it was fun and truly represented us."
Jon and Aimee 26/2/2016
Celebrant Hunter Valley
"Jacie Whitfield was not just our celebrant and she was our awesome celebrant!! Our ceremony was so personal. ALL our guests were hanging on her every word. Laughing, crying you name it. Our guests are still talking about how amazing our ceremony was, and it's usually the reception the guests talk about. Jacie was worth every penny and made all our friends and family a huge part of our day. She put so much time into our ceremony, it was so nice having Jacie getting to know not just My husband and I but our family and friends as well. We couldn't have asked for anything else! Having our ceremony as special as it was, was the perfect start to our perfect day and future life as husband and wife. You'd be crazy to have anyone else!!"
Jodie M 2015 - Score: 5/5
"Hi Jacie, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the incredible ceremony you crafted for Travis and Genevieve yesterday. It was so special. Never before have I been to a wedding so personal and intimate. We all really appreciated the time you took to get to know our families and the couple, and to share that so tastefully with their guests. You blended the perfect mix of heartfelt moments and cheerful humour (I thought I did well to only let one tear fall!). I had so much positive feedback from our guests - it was such a unique ceremony and everyone loved it!"
Danielle M (Bridesmaid) 2015
"I just want to quickly thank you again for everything. It was such a crazy wedding day with the weather and certainly challenged my resolve but with everyones help, especially yours, it was perfect in our eyes. We've completed your evaluation form and I'll pop it in the post today for you. Fair to say we love you, it was amazing, the ceremony was everything you promised it would be and more x

We choose you as our celebrant because of your uniquely customised approach and attention to detail. We felt so confident, comfortable and excited with you planning our ceremony. The way you included our family and friends into the ceremony gave everyone an insight into our relationship and we loved the way you balanced humour with all the emotion - it was a brilliant mix.

I think you have heard this before… we were told, that was the most beautiful, personal and entertaining ceremony - does Jacie know your family or is she a friend? Every time I cried, I laughed and then cried again. It was awesome!

You deliver exactly what you promise and then you take it 10 steps further and smash it out of the park!"
Lesley and Mark H. 2015
"Jacie you are amazing, our ceremony was perfect. Everyone raved about it and we were even told "those were the best vows we have ever heard!" Terry & Rochelle R. 2015

"Hello again, we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Terry and Rochelle’s wedding last Saturday. Everything was just perfect for them and we felt your part in the ceremony and also at the reception was very relaxed and very special. Your style and sense of humour added to the day."
Regards Bernice and Bob (The Newlyweds' Grandparents and married 50+ years)
"Thank you so much for your amazing part in the day. We couldn't be happier. Plenty of people came up to us at the reception and commented on what a lovely ceremony it was. Your professionalism and tailored approach was just great. Thank you for being so good at what you do. We will be sure to recommend you to anyone and everyone." Mitch and Angela. 2015

What part/s of your ceremony did you enjoy the most?
The lead up and the vows....
Setting the scene of our relationship; the story communicated, which painted a picture of our love and the love we have for our families.

What would you say to others about me and the celebrant services I provided?
Highly recommended. Professional. Tailored. Subtle. Reassuring.

What did your family and friends say about your ceremony and my presentation of your ceremony?
Numerous people commented that our vows and the words said made them rethink their wedding and how they could have done more with theirs. Those asked to contribute were happy when their words were incorporated; they felt more a 'part' of the ceremony.
"Our family and friends said our ceremony was one of a kind, hilarious and the best they had ever been to! Jacie has a real way with words, truly magical and a lovely smile and beautifully calming voice. Her passion really shines through."Kathryn & Adrian I. 2015
"Thank you for doing such a wonderful job Jacie, our guests loved the funny and emotional parts of the ceremony about each of us-they got to know what we are really like. We will be recommending you to everyone!" Matt & Natasha H. 2014
"We can’t thank you enough Jacie! You are amazing! We love how you pieced our puzzle together and made our ceremony perfect. Our guests said that they have never been to a wedding like ours ever-they particularly enjoyed the quirky jokes that related to us perfectly. 10/10" Taryn & Reid M. 2014
"Thank you for all the work you put into our personalised ceremony, we love that you got information from all our family and friends and included them in our ceremony. It made everyone feel a part of our love bubble. We personally loved all the Disney one liners and found you to be down to earth, relatable, easy going, respectful, understanding and loving. You are excellent!" Amy & Jamey N. 2014
"Hi Jacie! Nat and I just want to say a Huuuge thank you for the wonderful ceremony you put together on Saturday for us. You made us laugh, cry, and feel amazing right throughout the ceremony. We had so many comments from our guests about how wonderful both you and the ceremony were, with a lot saying that it was like a story they had to keep listening to! You really made a special day even more special for us and
we will be forever grateful. You are amazing and we wish you all the best and hope we cross paths again at some stage!"
Matt & Nat W. May 2014
"Hi Jacie, we are at the airport heading to Europe but just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our ceremony just beautiful. We loved every moment of your reading of our vows and we were truly blessed to have you there. It really was better than we could have hoped for!! Dom and I thank u from the bottom of our hearts :)). The guests commented on how relaxed you made the whole ceremony and that is exactly what we hoped!!! Xoxoxo" Dom & Tamara M. May 2014
"Morning Jacie, We have recovered well from the most amazing day of our lives! Thank-you again so much for the most amazing and memorable ceremony, all our guests really loved it and said how much more sense everything was when the ceremony was over thanks to you. A lot of people said you made them feel a real sense of place and could feel the whole day unfold as every area on our property felt like it had so much more meaning. As the evening went on so many of the guests also felt like they really got to know the bridal party and their importance to our individual relationships which was so nice. I honestly could not have asked for a more perfect day and that all began with you. Thankyou so much for all your effort it was truly unique and I can happily say there will never be another ceremony like it again as you truly made it completely ours." Brad & Jennah H. 2014
"Dear Jacie,
Please accept my heart-felt thank you for the most fantastic wedding service I have ever experienced I was very sorry I didn't get to thank you in person."
Ken W. (Father of the groom)
"Hi Jacie, I just wanted to congratulate you on the amazingly meaningful and personal ceremony you have crafted us. When you said you would be writing a personalised ceremony, I had no idea what to expect, and certainly did not realise you would craft such a wonderful story which is truly reflective of our relationship and love. You have exceeded all our expectations with the ceremony. You are truly amazing. The ceremony is perfect. I cannot thank you enough. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am sooooo excited."
Mel V. 2013 (On receiving the first draft of their wedding ceremony).
" Jacie you did so much for us and went above and beyond what we expected. The ceremony you crafted was truly magical and even to date we continue to get such positive feedback from our guests. Many guests said that they have never experienced a ceremony of this kind and didn’t realise that a wedding ceremony could be personalised to this extent. In all honestly, Gab and I weren’t sure what to expect from the whole idea of a "personalised ceremony" and what you delivered completely thrilled us beyond words. Gab and I were blown away by the level of consideration and detail you weaved into the ceremony, making it all about us right from the start. The ceremony was so engaging and cleverly accentuated with giggles and tears from our guests. Your ceremony really captured the very soul and spirit of our relationship and told our story in such a captivating way. I really feel that almost all our guests walked away from that ceremony having learnt something about us as a couple, which gave the rest
of the night a strong sense of unity and support. You are truly a modern day Shakespeare and you have found your calling."

Mel & Gab M. 2013



"Our wedding was perfect, Jacie delivered a ceremony beyond my expectations and suggested a beautiful tree planting ceremony to honour our family in spirit and celebrate the life we are embarking on. Jacie was
so helpful, honest and has an arsenal of beautiful ideas."
Kerry & Aaron F. 2012
"Jacie was extremely thorough and caring. She got to know us both and catered our vows and wedding to meet our needs and differences. She paid attention to every detail of our wedding and performed our ceremony in such a professional, engaging and caring manner. Jacie made our wedding special and unique to us. I would highly recommend Jacie for any wedding ceremony." Jeanette & John H. 2012
"The most magical and important part of a wedding day is during the marriage ceremony when a man and a woman become husband and wife. A Bride and Groom can spend months and thousands of dollars planning their perfect wedding day. Or they may just want a simple ceremony surrounded by a handful of family and close friends.

However if a marriage ceremony is poorly written, coupled with an ineffective delivery, there is little doubt their wedding ceremony will be utterly forgettable! Jacie is a marriage celebrant with superb writing skills. She takes the time to identify the personalities and characters of each couple, as well as the essence of their relationship and goals, and then uses her creative flair to compose a ceremony which is both meaningful and memorable.

Another of Jacie’s gifts is her ability to deliver each ceremony in a sincere and meaningful way, and this is why after every ceremony she conducts, families and guests tell Jacie “that was the best wedding ceremony I’ve ever heard”.

There are many marriage celebrants, but not all have Jacie's essential skills."
