Jan Goodieson - Mildura Celebrant
John Lennon and Paul McCartney summed it up perfectly when they sang "All you need is love!” And I enjoy just adding to that equation with an individually written, personal ceremony that celebrates this fact.
As a "people person", a closet romantic, and self-confessed "wedding-a-holic", I have a passion for beautiful words and writing "out- of-the-box" ceremonies and view my celebrant business as something precious and ever-evolving.
We should always treasure those special moments in life that take our breath away. Simple, modern, elegant ceremonies or a glitzy ball-room or backyard bash – your ceremony, your choice.
It’s extremely important to me that your ceremony reflects you as a couple, captures the essence of your relationship and mirrors how you feel about each other. “Everyone has their own special story.”
This of course can be done without the ceremony being long or drawn-out, but still meaningful..
I offer a “no-obligation” chat to couples so I can outline the service I provide and show my “goodie bag”(pardon the pun) of comprehensive resources and ceremony information that couples receive on making their booking.
I also provide a professional standard PA system for your music and to ensure everyone can hear those all-important words. A 'French' wrought iron ceremony stand always accompanies me as well and adds a bit of style.
I have had the privilege of marrying lots of couples who have come to Mildura from Queensland, Darwin, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne, Canberra and country New South Wales because of the availability of the gorgeous locations and stunning settings our river-based region offers. So we can organise ceremonies even if they are to be “long-distance” affairs to begin with through the wonders of email and phone etc....
I have performed ceremonies on river banks, houseboats, wineries such as Trentham Estate, and stunning private gardens and the list goes on. Have even had a fun wedding on the platform of the Red Cliffs Steam Railway Station! "My little pink car certainly gets around..”
It would be a privilege to design a ceremony for you that will make your wedding an amazing moment in your lives and importantly, a stress-free and magical experience you and your guests will remember always.
Would love to hear from you..
