Welcome to Lovebirds Wedding Ceremonies, thanks for visiting. I’m Jenny, a marriage celebrant on the mid-north coast of NSW. Since conducting my first wedding in 2007 I have focused on creating relaxed, personal, heartfelt ceremonies with a feeling of connection and joy throughout. I have a passion for sharing each couple’s unique love story so spending the time to get to know you and your relationship is a priority for me. My dynamic interest in astrology allows me not only to explore how couples connect on a deeper level, but to assist in selecting the ideal date for your perfect day.

Your wedding day will be one of the most special, memorable days of your life.

As a marriage celebrant, it is my role to:

- Explain and manage the legal requirements and documentation. The legal process starts when we complete a Notice of Intended Marriage and ends after your ”I do’s” and I register the marriage and order your official certificate.

- Work with you in planning and creating the structure of your ceremony to ensure its unique to you both. I will ask you questions and get to know you on a personal level. I will give you examples of ceremonies, poems and readings, answer any questions and discuss your expectations. I can also assist in finding the best date and time astrologically if this is of interest to you.

- Rehearse the ceremony with you and everyone involved so the day runs seamlessly

Dear Jenny & Dale,

Thank you both for helping us to make our wedding the best day ever!

Jenny, thank you for working with us to create a ceremony that was truly ’us’. It was relaxed, fun and heartfelt in all the right places and we loved every moment. It couldn’t have felt more perfect, and we couldn’t have done it without your guidance and wisdom. We appreciate all of the time, thought and energy that you put into getting it just right. ​​

Dale, thank you for making the technical side of things run so smoothly. The video you took is absolutely priceless to us and we have already enjoyed watching it and reliving the day. ​​

Lots of love, Andrew and Laura xox

Dear Jenny, ​

Thank you for helping us celebrate our special day. It was the most perfect day, thanks to you. You ensured that the entire process in the lead up was stress free and you went above and beyond to create a ceremony that was special to us. We appreciated the time you spent finding the perfect stories to include which made our guests laugh, reminisce and feel the love that we share. ​

You have a unique ability to make even the most frantic bride calm and seeing your warm smile at the end of the aisle helped keep my nerves at bay. ​

You truly are one in a million xx

On the 14th November 2020 we had the pleasure of having Jenny and Dale as our celebrant and sound/video technician for our country wedding. ​

Throughout our planning we discussed how we ideally wanted a semi-formal ceremony with the casual comfort of being laid back, relaxed and incorporating our children into the proceedings and this is exactly what Jenny delivered. Jenny listened to what we wanted for our commitment and helped us both with guidance and advice on writing our own personalized vows and ‘story of us’. Our ceremony was perfectly tailored to our wants and needs and Jenny respected our ‘non-traditional’ values and wishes to keep the whole process comfortable and relaxed whilst including our sense of humour and a touch of style. ​

It was a very humid 36 degrees in the shade on our special day and Jenny managed to stay flexible, keep everyone relaxed, kept the vibe flowing without rushing us and her personal touch of genuine emotion brought everything together and was that special sprinkle of something that we didn’t realise was missing. ​

Jenny and Dale are a wonderful duo working together to achieve the best outcome and ensure no task is overlooked. Our guests complimented us several times about how lovely the ceremony was and we loved sitting down and watching the ceremony recording with our children and reliving the day through a guests eyes. ​We cannot recommend Jenny enough and encourage all couples to reach out and experience something wonderful on such a special day. ​

Jenny was our celebrant in 2019. She went above and beyond to personalise our ceremony. She incorporated our love story and ensured the ceremony completely represented our relationship, beliefs and our wishes, all with a lot of humour!

Her intuition and empathy made the process from our first meeting to our Wedding day seamless and pleasant.
We would highly recommend Jenny as an exceptional celebrant. Simply, our day was perfect because of Jenny's love and dedication.
