It’s all about
the two of you.

Jacqueline Majer Celebrant Profile

Hi, my name is Jacqueline but please call me Jac, Jacx or Jacqui.

I’m a non-traditional marriage celebrant based in Bronte, Sydney.  I do fun, relaxed and creative wedding ceremonies that express the real ‘you’ as a couple. I’m here so that you and your guests have an amazing wedding ceremony.

My love for travel, finding hidden gem locations, creative ideas and the wonderment of weddings, led me here.

My celebrant journey came about 3 years ago when I got married for the second time. My husband and I decided to elope in the Nevada desert. We had the coolest (well actually it was HOT like 45″), most amazing day! We have our awesome celebrant and superstar photographer to thank for that. I was totally inspired by my experience. It was a lightbulb moment for me and has one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I absolutely love my work and feel so much joy helping couples celebrate their marriage. Previously I was a marketer specialised in the tourism and film industries. Travel is still one of my biggest passion, I’ve visited over 60 countries and many parts of Australia. My other passion is ocean swimming and scuba diving, its my happy place. I love my yoga, and I’m a big fan of music, film, art, festivals, social gatherings and listening to people’s stories.

I have such a lovely job. The enjoyment in delivering a lighthearted, fun and engaging ceremony is one reason. But most of all, I feel pretty privileged to meet and spend time with so many awesome couples at a very significant time in their lives. How lucky am I?

While I’m based in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, I can marry you just about anywhere in Australia and will also conduct ceremonies overseas. I’m super happy to wander to the wildest, quaintest and most stunning places on our planet for you.

So let’s get together and make your ceremony awesome.

The best
ceremony is
fairly simple.

Planning the best ceremony ever is fairly simple, really.
Here’s what’s involved when choosing me as your wedding celebrant:

Get in Touch

Via email, phone or social. We’ll have an initial chat and I’ll ask you some simple questions to start with, followed by setting up a time where we can meet up or arrange a video call.

Let's Meet

We’ll discuss your ideas, what’s important to you and start to lay out the elements for the ceremony together. I’m here to help with recommendations – just fire away as many questions as you have.

In's and Out's

I’ll run through the necessary legalities, how the ceremony will flow and little tips for the day. I’ll also help with the Notice of Intended Marriage form which must be completed at least one month before the day.

Ready to Roll

Let’s rehearse sometime the week of. Then on the day, I’ll be at the venue at least 45-60 mins before start time. I’ll set up and touch base with anyone involved,  before you’re ready and we begin.

Signed and Sealed

At the end of the ceremony, the legal documents are signed by you, your two witnesses and myself. The Certificate of Marriage is then yours, before you head off as newlyweds. Straight after I register your marriage online with Births, Deaths & Marriages.

Proof its Legit

If you’re planning on changing your name or need proof of marriage, I can apply and make payment for your Official Marriage Certificate from BDMs in the state of your wedding. In NSW, the standard version costs $58 and takes around 2-6 working days to arrive via registered post.

A Little Something

As a little thank you gift from me to you, I will provide you with a beautifully scripted print copy of your chosen vows 🙂

What
Others Say.

We really appreciate Jacqui's great efforts in making our special day absolutely amazing. She made it a breeze and went off without a hitch.

Kristina & Joe, November 2017

Thank you so much Jacqui, we were so happy with everything. Everyone had a wonderful afternoon. Still on a buzz to be honest!

Karen & Mick, December 2017

Jacqui was exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant: nice, simple, genuine. It calmed me during the ceremony to look at her and to have her there. We could feel the genuine care in her eyes.

Juliette & Adam, January 2018

A massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating a ceremony that was perfectly us!!! You were wonderful!

Liz & Scott, January 2018

We were looking for someone professional but fun and vibrant for our celebrant and Jacqueline was absolutely perfect! She was everything we wanted and more. She made us feel relaxed both in the lead up to the wedding and on the big day, she was like a friend we had known for years! Other people commented on how great she was on the day and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her. She's brilliant at her job and so lovely too.

Jodie & Tim, March 2018

Jacqui is absolutely one of a kind. She made it a priority to get to know as much about me and my husband's relationship as possible so she could give us a unique, heartfelt ceremony. All of our guests commented on how much passion she has for her job (and there wasn't a dry-eye in the place!) Fun, relaxed, and loving - I would recommend Jacqui's services to everyone!

Layla & Adrian, March 2018

We used Jacqui Majer as our marriage celebrant for our wedding back in April and we’re more than happy to recommend her to others. We found Jacqui to be an excellent communicator, friendly helpful and made the whole process hassle free...we were completely at ease by the time of the wedding where she delivered a charming and engaging service. We received a lot of compliments from the guests afterwards (of which there were 225!) so she was definitely a hit.

Dinusha & Amali, April 2018

Thank you Jacqui for making our ceremony perfect! You were warm and friendly from the first meeting - we felt a connection straight away. The ceremony you gave us was unique and personal. It was everything we wanted! We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant.

Briony & Nathan, April 2018

We chose Jacqui as the celebrant to officiate at our wedding and we absolutely made the perfect choice. She was easy to get along with and made us both feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. Jacqui showed impeccable attention to detail and support in everything from the timing of the ceremony through to the paperwork. She was considerate of the things that were important to us and made sure that our ceremony was perfect for us. She has a fantastic energy and presentation, I would highly recommend Jacqui to anyone who wants a hassle free wedding.

Alicia & Matt, May 2018

Thank you so much for being a wonderful celebrant at our wedding!!! It was such an extraordinary moment for Ads and I. You really beautifully articulated our stories and memories. Thank you xox

Lis & Adam, July 2018

Jacqueline was the perfect celebrant for our destination wedding! We found her to be warm and open and so easy to talk to. Our ceremony was very personal and emotional in the best possible way - everything we had hoped for. Thank you Jacqueline!

Danae & Michael, July 2018

Jacqui was a highlight of our wedding - she is a superstar celebrant! Jacqui is a warm and experienced celebrant who knows exactly how to create a perfectly personal and intimate ceremony. Jacqui was a breeze to work with; from our first conversation we knew she was the celebrant for us!

Elke & Will, Oct 2018

From the moment we met Jacqui we knew she was the one! She put us at ease with her confidence and knowledge and even managed to get two private people to indulge enough information to create a magical and memorable ceremony. There was tears!! Jacqui's involvement in our day was as a friend not as a celebrant. We can not recommend her more highly to create an intimate, inclusive and memorable ceremony.
