Brisbane Marriage Celebrant

Whether you are looking for a Wedding Celebrant, Naming Celebrant, Gay-Friendly Commitment Celebrant, or someone to create a personal and intimate Renewal of Vows, or to create a Divorce or End-of-Relationship ceremony to help you move on with your life, give me a call on 07 3378 3005 or send me an email and you'll find that I am not your 'typical bland and boring' celebrant. Whatever your vision for your ceremony I will 'get' it, I will 'get' you and I will work with you to make it happen in a way that far exceeds your expectations.

I'm NOT going to tell you I'm awesome, or funny, or quirky, or hip, or vibrant. It's not about me, it's about you. Your ceremony. Your day. Your style. I can be all of those things, but really, what matters is that with me as your celebrant lead-up to your ceremony will be relaxed, stress-free, and fun. And your ceremony will not be a ho-hum experience incorporating outdated gender stereotypes, tired old rituals or long-winded readings used as fillers, a blow-by-blow account of how you met and the daily details of your relationship, or presumptuous and boring lectures.

My aim is that no-one looks at their watch, and everyone goes away saying "that was so them...." so I take a very creative approach to fusing tradition with your personal style to create a contemporary personal ceremony. I will manage your ceremony, conduct it with warmth and good humour, but do nothing to make myself the centre of attention - this is your day, you will be centre-stage. It IS all about you

Read on, Read more ... or give me a call to chat about what you expect from your celebrant and how I can meet those expectations in a way that is not run-of-the-mill, and to talk to me about the very real difference between a personal ceremony (which is what I do) and a personalised ceremony (which is what you settle for when you engage the typical celebrant).

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 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!

Wendy wrote: "It was a wonderful ceremony-one of the best I have been to for years. I loved the personalisation."

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.

Natasha wrote: "Beautiful ceremony and very in tune with bride and groom. Congratulations."

Jennifer Cram if I am still in brissy I am definitely getting you to do the naming ceremony You are AMAZING celebrant for those of my friends reading this and want someone amazing this is the woman for you. - March 2013 Facebook comment from Casie, who married Nathan in 2012

Kimberly's mother wrote: Jennifer, thank you so much for the beautiful, personal, poignant ceremony you performed for Kimberly and Adam yesterday. From America, a civil celebrant ceremony was new to me and it really touched my heart. Thank you for all you did!

Scott Lawler of Scott Lawler Photograph wrote: 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..

Comments from couples
Thank you so so much for Saturday. The ceremony was wonderful. Many people have said it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever been to. I know people say that all the time but I actually believe them. 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 - Katie & Lachie

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

From our very first phone call to Jennifer we found her approach to be comfortable, calm and competent, whilst being professional yet personal. These thoughts were proved during our first face-to-face meeting. 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
