“My aim is always to provide you with a professional, dignified and meaningful ceremony, tailored to your personal requirements in a relaxed atmosphere. I take great pride in creating a unique service and endeavour to exceed the expectations of all my clients.”

Location is never a problem, as I am very comfortable delivering your wedding service where you want it. Whether this is the beautiful Australian Beaches, in Open Country, Hotels, Function Centres or a Private Residence.

I always arrive 30minutes prior to your weddings agreed start time, the law requirement is 20 minutes. I also Supply a "Professional" sound system free of charge to every service. Plus, I give you a free signing "Pen" for when you sign the Marriage certificate for you to keep as a memento. Inter-faith services are dealt with in a manner that meets the expectations of all parties concerned.

All services are tailored to your personal requirements and my aim is to exceed your expectations at all times.


The Marriage Ceremony is the most important occasion in a couple’s lives and should be an elegant and memorable ceremony. Marriage for me is a very sacred part of my life, I have been married to my best friend and husband for over 49 years.With so many wonderful memories that I have, let us work together, so that we can create those wonderful, happy, fun & full of laughter memories. YOUR wedding ceremony should be yours alone, a style of your own in a relaxed atmosphere. Interfaith weddings will be dealt with a manner that meets the expectations of all parties concerned.

As a full time professional, I am able to perform Weddings during the week as well as on the weekends. My goal is to help you create a Professional, Romantic and Unique Ceremony, as you walk back down the aisle as a married couple laughing and smiles on your faces.

Jill's thoughts on Marriage - Love is for everyone young, not so young, love has NO Gender.
