Brisbane Marriage Celebrant,

Brisbane Marriage Celebrant Jennifer Cram
  • Are you looking for a celebrant who specialises in creating and delivering imaginative, creative, relaxed, and above all entertaining ceremonies?
  • A celebrant who is ahead of the trends?
  • A celebrant who will perform your ceremony with warm and flair - not just read it.
  • A celebrant who won't photobomb your ceremony?
  • A celebrant who delivers what her website promises and therefore has no need to insult your intelligence by claiming to be the only celebrant who makes your ceremony fun, or by making other patently unverifiable claims?
  • An authorised marriage celebrant won't mislead you or cause you unnecessary anxiety and expense by giving you incorrect or misleading advice about the legal requirements?
  • A celebrant who definitely won't subject you and your guests to a lame, weird,  boring, or same-old, same-old recycled ceremony?
  • A celebrant will teach you negotiating strategies that will deliver far greater savings than you would achieve by just negotiating on price (which is what most of the wedding industry wants you to do because they build that in to their quotes)?
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 engage your celebrant you are not just choosing someone to perform a ceremony for you. You are putting your hearts in your celebrant's hands, so you need to be confident that your celebrant will create and deliver a ceremony that delights you, engages the guests, and that your celebrant won't cause problems for you either on the day or afterwards.

Unfortunately, most ceremonies are anything but authentic.  When your celebrant requires you to say words that don't feel comfortable or include traditions because “that’s just how it’s always been done,” or worse still, settle for a stock standard ceremony that could be for or about anyone, your ceremony is something far less than it could be. But truth be told, most guests will be kind and tell you that your ceremony was beautiful even when it was boring and predictable; it is when they make remarks about specifics that you know you've really hit the mark.

Brooke wrote: "Such an amazing (tear jerking) ceremony I have been to for so long! These beautiful gals know how to commit! :) thank you for your fantastic services x"

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."

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.


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, give me a call on 07 3378 3005 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 guarantee that 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

How can I guarantee all of the above? Read more ... 

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
