Jan kept us on track with booking pre-wedding catch-ups and reminded us of what needs to be done. Jan was ready and available at a time that suited us and comfort of the venue meet up. All documents provided that we required. It was such a relief to rely on Jan’s expertise of what was required as we had no clue. Jan doesn’t need any suggestions. She is so professional and an expert. Thank you for your support with our written vows. Absolutely. Can’t have a better celebrant.

We felt very prepared coming into the big day knowing Jan had the ceremony under control and would help us make sure we did everything correctly. Zoe our musician passes on her thanks as she said you were a big help in keeping her calm before the ceremony when she couldn’t get her sound equipment working, you went above and beyond! Jack also said the same that you were very calming and helped settle his nerves while waiting for me to arrive. We loved that you took the marriage ceremony seriously as it is a very serious commitment, but at the same time your lighthearted jokes through the ceremony as well made it very relaxed and enjoyable for all. (I still giggle thinking about your comment when Jack was picking out my ring from the box that ‘the brides are the one with all the diamonds” and when he was struggling to get it on and you said “he just wants to make sure its on firmly and cant fall off”.
Thank you SO much, Jan for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives so far, and one we will remember fondly forever.
I have attached some photos for you which you are more than welcome to use as you please – we have permission from the photographer too (John Benavente).

We want to thank you again for your services on Saturday, not only was it not what we had planned initially but the wind also threw another spanner in our works, you didn’t let that get in the way of marrying us and we are so incredibly grateful! You made us feel very comfortable, particularly myself when I was so nervous. Despite being in the middle on a pandemic, Jan was amazing with so many last-minute changes we had to make. We look forward to having you with us to renew our vows when restrictions have been lifted and we can have the wedding we planned!
Lots of love,
Sean and Carissa Bidder
“Jan was amazing. She made aaron and I feel comfortable and that we could be ourselves. She understood what we wanted in our ceremony, and didn’t push anything on us at all. Thank you so much Jan!”
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all you did to make not only myself and Aaron feel comfortable, but the bridal party, the parents and the rest of the guests.
Thank you for helping me get Aaron into gear with writing his own vows!
Thank you for being part of our special day.

We were thrilled and delighted with Jan. She was professional and very interested in us as a couple. We were feeling a little nervous leading up to the wedding and we didn’t think we could concentrate on saying our wedding vows confidently on our own so at the last minute we asked Jan if we could repeat them after her. She happily agreed and reassured us which gave us confidence. We felt so privilege for Jan to marry us. Our guests commented afterwards at the reception, saying how professional she was, impeccably dressed and how she went out of her way to meet and greet our guests on arrival. As the bride, I had no idea she was doing this prior to my arrival and when our guests told me, I was not at all surprised, what a beautiful person Jan Littlejohn is

Thank you so much for Sunday. The ceremony was just perfect and very reflective of both James and I (even the funny little moments that weren’t entirely part of the plan). I surprised myself at how relaxed I felt and not one bit nervous (thanks to your advice!), I was just so excited to be there. I just went online and completed the ABIA survey. James and I could not fault you on anything, so we gave you 100%!! We were so lucky to have you to share our special day with

So many people have said tome what a lovely serve we had for Laurie and I am so grateful you were there to guide me through.thank you for adding your special personal touch
Gale force winds and torrential rain meant the planned outdoor ceremony had to be moved and postponed. Jan kept the bridal party calm and composed and coordinated changes with the venue which ensured everything ran smoothly with the ceremony. The ceremony was delayed by 1.5 hours due to extreme weather conditions, so Jan ended up being super early. Jan provided an array of ceremony, reading and vow examples which were very helpful. Jan is organised and extremely professional. The ceremony was held in an enclosed balcony and Jan could easily be heard through the wind and rain causing havoc outside. Jan’s presentation is very classic and elegant. Ben & I were so happy with Jan’s service and many guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was.
Ben and Belinda
Service prior to ceremony was Fantastic given the logistics we live in the USA. Flexibility, material, level of professionalism all fantastic, Presentation Clear and articulate dress suitable and well equipped. Overall performance all fantastic.

At our first meeting you listened to the type of service we wanted and asked questions about our immediate family. Provided heaps of material which was very helpful. Even a list for the groom. .Arrived on time and chatted to some of the guests even during the ceremony mentioning that some friends of ours were thinking of renewing their vows after 30 years of marriage. You were highly professional. . I loved the way you didn’t need to refer to your words very much during the ceremony – that shows a true professional. 100% – can’t fault anything. It was also great you stayed on after the ceremony and mingled with the guests. Would you recommend celebrant – Most certainly Thank you so much for doing such a personal and professional job on our Wedding Day.

Jan I can’t believe it’s been more than 5 months since I got married and it’s taken me this long to send this to you, but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for everything you did on our wedding day. The tone you set for our ceremony was just perfect – welcoming, sincere and with a touch of humour. And despite the threat of torrential rain and wind, you kept everyone in check and the mood upbeat. Thank you also for making the planning of our ceremony so easy and hassle free – even from the other side of the world!

Jan you made our day just that little bit more special by making us feel like family from day one. From our first meeting you gave us great tips and great ideas. You made us feel confident in what we were about to embark on and everytime we left your meeting we just wanted to get married then and there. You made the whole experience so exciting and magical. On the day you made everyone laugh and thoroughly enjoy the ceremony. Everyone heard every word unlike other ceremonies where you cant hear anything. I could not recommend a better celebrant to anyone getting married!
Matt and Nardia
We would definitely recommend Jan. Jan worked with us to put together a ceremony that was personal to what we wanted and she also included a couple of jokes! We had many people comment on how well Jan conducted the ceremony and how polished and professional she was on the day.

Jan was always very prompt and helpful in her emails – all organization was done over emails as we lived in London in the lead up to our wedding in Sydney. Jan even downloaded and learnt how to use Skype so we could meet her virtually before we took her up on her services. We thought you did such a great job on our wedding day and are so very happy with how everything went. It was an amazing day and one we will never forget!! Everyone was really touched by the ceremony and commented particularly on the words that we had throughout it. Thank you for providing such helpful guidance in the lead up to our wedding day, especially considering everything was organised over emails and Skype. We really appreciate it – it made the preparation so much easier!

Jan was always very prompt in returning emails and phone calls helpful organizing as we are in another state. Jan made herself available to marry on our cruise ship and Arrived well before the service as our cruise ship was to go by a strict time frame
We weren’t sure what vows we wanted, so Jan tailored our vows to suit our personalities. All by phone. Very impressive. Comments from family and friends attending were praise for Jan’s level of professionalism and uniqueness of our wedding. Thanks again Jan for all your help to make our day unique to us. We were a little unsure of how it would all turn out being in separate states, but your warmness and professionalism set our minds at rest. Jan, you went above and beyond to help organize a hair/make-up artist for myself, April was fabulous.
Andrew & Sarah
