Peta Coulson ~ 2018 Joanne you are the epitome if Marriage Celebrants. You are relaxed, calming and most of all fun. You understood our personal needs as it wasn't altogether traditional. We love the "Surprise Gift" That brought on the most tears (in a good way) We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Emma Compton~ 2017 Joanne was the celebrant for our wedding in September 2017. She was so wonderful and helpful throughout the whole process going above and beyond to answer any questions I had and talk with me so I always felt calm and excited for the day. She made our day so beautiful and special and for that I am very grateful. Thank you Joanne!
Paul M ~ 2017 We chose Joanne as our celebrant because she is different from other celebrants. Using True Symbology and Meaning that is close to our own hearts. All who were there also agreed as to how special this ceremony has been. And they have been to a few in their life time. Joanne is authentic, genuine and a joyful person. And we are so happy that we found her..thank you Joanne for making our day so special.
Shelley Johns ~ 2016 We were fortunate to have Jo as the Celebrant at our wedding in 2016, and she was just perfect! Easy to communicate with, very forward in helping create the most wonderful ceremony (especially if you have no idea what you want!), and just really warm and professional on the day. As Jo said, she wouldn't give us a boring ceremony, and she certainly delivered. She made our wedding such a joyful occasion, kept the ceremony true to us and our wedding day would not have been the same without her. Highly recommend her for a ceremony that just shines with true joy and love <3
M T ~ 2015 Joanne was our celebrant for our wedding in January 2015. I normally contacted her through e-mail and she always replied promptly which made it so much easier. I sent her the questionnaire and our vows at the very last minute but she made it everything so perfect. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her. She is very helpful, heartwarming, and fun to have as a marriage celebrant! I would definitely recommend her to anybody who is going to get married in Cairns. Thanks you so much Joanne :)
Rhe Flower ~ 2016 Jo was absolutely incredible! My husband and I wanted a wedding guests would remember, and Jo absolutely delivered. There's not been one guest from our big day that didn't comment on Jo's wonderful little surprises or beautifully written words. She kept everyone entertained and even got our guests involved. What an absolute gem she is!
Gerri ~ 2016 Wonderful day. Joanne may it so relaxing. Full of fun and laughter and spectacular colours. She made us laugh and cry (all for the right reasons). A day we will never forget. Wonderful surprise gifts - so thoughtful
Kirsty Poole ~ 2014 Jo was our wedding Celebrant in July 2014. She's AMAZING! We live in Sydney and had to organise most of the ceremony over the phone and email. She made it so easy for us and I felt she genuinely wanted to know about us so she could tailor the ceremony for us. When she emailed the draft ceremony it made me cry. Such heartfelt words. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Jo!
Leah Fraser ~ 2015 Hi Joanne, I was at my friend Jess's wedding last month and I want to say what a fantastic marriage celebrant you are! Jess and Tim could not have asked for a better celebrant. Your fun and energetic personality suited them perfectly and all the guests, like myself, raved about you all night and still do. Thank you so much, you said this was your destiny, how right you are!
Lauren Guymer ~ 2016 I don't even know where to begin to describe how wonderful it was to have Joanne as part of our wedding! From the moment we met (in a bit of a panic after our original celebrant cancelled!) we clicked. She kept us (more so me... haha) calm, up to date and she had so many helpful suggestions. She even convinced hubby to write his own vows - and turns out there were even better than my own! We were supported throughout the entire process and even though Jo had many other weddings on and a big wedding event to organise we always felt as if we were a priority. The ceremony itself was amazing and we have had so many comments about how meaningful it was. It was seriously the best day of our lives and we owe so much of that to Joanne. If you are looking for someone who will bring joy and love (and maybe a little bit of laughter!) to your ceremony then Joanne is your lady. Jo, I cannot thank you enough for all you did for us - thank you for going the extra mile and making every moment special xx
Allison Baker ~ 2016 Joanne was the absolute best to have as a marriage celebrant. We contacted Joanne through email. All of our planning was through the email until we arrived in Australia from the USA. She always replied within 24 hours and was so responsive to my inquiries and needs. She walked us through the process of legalities with getting married in a foreign country. She was helpful with a videographer, venue, and photographer. She was so helpful after arrival in Australia and finally met. She drove us to the Gardens and toured with us to find a great spot after the spot we rented by the lily pond was dredged up, ugly and smelly. She took care of all the paperwork and is still helpful after the ceremony. There was plenty of laughter and tears of pure emotion and happiness that she handled with such grace and dignity. I would highly recommend her for all of your wedding needs.
Jessica Pisevski ~ 2014 Jo was our celebrant in August 2014 and we were absolutely thrilled with her. She is so easy going, light and funny and that's exactly how we wanted our ceremony to be. I would definitely recommend her. We live in Melbourne so booked everything on line and via telephone and Jo organised everything for us with no stressful moments! So happy with her and wish we could do it all again! Jess and Christian
Emma Lodge ~ 2016 It was such a beautiful afternoon/evening and the ceremony was AMAZING!!! It’s definitely up there as one of the best weddings I’ve ever attended, especially with the extra special gifts for the bride & groom, just perfect!! If anyone is in need of a celebrant I will certainly pass your details on ;)
Dianne Schmidt ~ 2016 Jo is fantastic nothing was too big or too small, even for my small Wedding wasn't perfect weather for the day but Jo made it special! Jo was wonderful and such any easy lady to deal with! PERFECT 10/10 THANKS Jo Love Sean, Di and Hunter XOXOXOX
Claudette Good ~ 2015 As a local wedding planner, I have worked with Joanne a number of times. She brings a unique lightness and love to each of the ceremonies she conducts. Not just content to know your names, she wants to know your story as well, and how you met and fell in love. I absolutely recommend her!
Stella Higginson ~ 2015 Jo, Thank you for making our Ceremony a celebration of love; you edited and moulded the ceremony so that we could do our words from the heart & this gave special meaning to our experience of "getting married in paradise". Your professional attitude and "can do" manner really calmed this bride's nerves! Joanne Male is a wonderful marriage celebrant, with a heart as big as her smile - she has the experience that is needed to make your ceremony just right & beautiful. Some words one never forgets.. Thank you, baie dankie! Mr & Mrs Voges
Kathryn & John Newell ~ 2014 Our wedding was on 30th August 2014 at Clifton Beach foreshore. We live in Northern NSW & had organised our celebrant for our special day but unfortunately due to family circumstances the celebrant was not able to do it but gave us Joannes name, we were understandably upset but after our first contact with Joanne we had a good feeling about her. We met with Joanne the day before our wedding at the spot we had chosen. From the moment we saw & spoke to her in person we knew that Joanne was meant to be our celebrant. Joanne is so easy to communicate with & listened to all we had to say & ask, so much so she asked if we minded if she rewrote some parts of our ceremony which had already been done by the original celebrant & passed onto Joanne. Joanne wanted our ceremony to reflect what she had gotten from our meeting with her. Joanne did not disappoint!!!!!! Our ceremony was amazing, there was laughter & tears it was so beautiful. Joanne has a incredible personality & a genuine enthusiasm for all she does. We can not thank her enough for making our day so memorable. Thanks Joanne xxx
