Myself and my husband were very satisfied with John's work as our celebrant.

John was extremely organised with all the paperwork leading up to, during and after the wedding. He lodged our documents promptly and we received notice from the QBDM that our marriage was registered, only four days following our wedding. 

John has a lovely speaking voice and was very calm and professional throughout the entire process, which is ideal for a wedding. Our ceremony went perfectly to plan and our guests commented on how well the ceremony was run by John.

Overall, we had a great experience with John and would highly recommend his services to anyone.

David and I could not have wished for a more beautiful ceremony.

John put us both at complete ease and

was a joy to work with.

He went above and beyond to include everyone in the ceremony and met every expectation we had.

Prior to the marriage John met with us to work through what we wanted and he delivered on the day. He listened to everything and didn't miss a trick.

Everyone who attended were so happy with John and they said it was just a beautiful ceremony.

Thank you John from the bottom of our hearts.


Ryan and Tayla

We highly recommend John!


From the very beginning to the day we said ‘I do’, John was there whether it was emails or text messages checking in to see how everything was going leading up to our wedding.


The ceremony that John created for us was magical!


Thank you for everything John!

We could not have been happier with John!

He made us feel so comfortable at every stage of the planning process and that feeling carried through right to the end of the ceremony.

He was so reliable in regards to communication; we couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Everybody at the ceremony only had good things to say about John!


Would definitely recommend!

Thank you John for helping us create the most perfect afternoon.


An even bigger thank you for helping us keep it all a secret. You made the whole process a breeze and enjoyable.


Thank you for making us all feel comfortable in a rather nerve-racking situation.


The ceremony was perfect, even with our little ones constantly interrupting.


Highly recommend choosing John as your celebrant.

John was an amazing Celebrant for our wedding!


He was funny and able to have a laugh with us. He was so kind and treated us like our wedding was the most special wedding!


He also captured beautiful photos of memories of the rehearsal and after our ceremony.


Thank you again John.

John was nothing short of amazing for our wedding.

From the initial conversation to our meeting and email communication, nothing was too difficult for John - especially travelling an hour and a half each way for both rehearsal and ceremony with limited venue directions apart from “there will be signs!”


We have had so many comments from guests asking if we knew John personally as our ceremony was so tailored, personal and organised.


John’s experience really shines through and went beyond his official duties to make sure we didn’t forget anything important and the photos he snapped during rehearsal and ceremony were the added extra mile.

We can’t thank you enough for helping us have the best day possible!

To anyone looking for a celebrant - we promise John’s the best bloke for the job!

It is hard to express the joy of our wedding day.  It was just perfect surrounded by friends and loved ones.


This whole experience however would not have been possible if it was not for John. He made the whole process fun and enjoyable.


From getting everyone relaxed from the nerves of rehearsal through to the actual day, it was so good and we can't thank John enough. It was not only us that John made feel comfortable, but it was also our guests; we had many a comment on how great he was, his sense of humour just made the day a totally beautiful experience for all.


Thank you, John,

On 20th April John Carey presided at our wedding.


To say he added to a remarkable day would be an understatement.


John made sure that everyone was at ease, he added humour as well as solemnity to a truly joyful occasion. Not only were we, the couple, impressed with John's eloquence and

presentation, we had a roomful of guests who could not compliment us enough on our choice of celebrant.


All we can say, is WOW, what an occasion!

We encourage anyone and everyone to make sure that you choose John as your wedding celebrant!


This won't surprise John one bit as I feel like he came to know us so well and he knows that between the 'calm' (Adam) and the 'chaos' (me), we'd likely forget to leave one of the most important reviews from our wedding day.

John captured our life together so well with his words, or lack thereof with my often very quiet husband!

John was available whenever we needed him in the lead up to the day and made sure we were able to have our rehearsal the afternoon before so that the many kids in our wedding party felt comfortable.

John took photos of this part of our wedding weekend, which people often forget, but it all added to our amazing wedding weekend. Music was very important to us and John had all of the equipment to make sure that our guests were able to hear and feel the music we chose to complement our ceremony!

John also worked in with our photographer to make sure we have the greatest ceremony photos. Having our wedding at a family property was exactly what we dreamed but not being from the region, we weren't sure where to start when searching for a celebrant; but we got lucky when we found John, who truly made our wedding day extra special! Thanks John!

John was absolutely fantastic!


Thank you so much for everything you have done.


Our wedding was spectacular and very memorable. This was attributed to John with his fantastic planning and elegant service.


John was very professional and gave great advice when needed. He had a calm demeanour, which helped my wife and I relax for our big day!


Thank you again!!


Caiden & Zoe


John was absolutely awesome!


The ceremony would not have been as perfect without him there!!.


He put in a lot of effort in making sure all the bridal party were aware of how the day would run and controlled the confetti throw perfectly for the photographers!!

John could not have been more professional with the job he done and absolutely smashed our goal of having a semi relaxed ceremony with a bit of humour!!!


Definitely a 10/10 from us, could not have done anything better!


Thanks John!!


Will and Emily


Will and I were very happy with John’s services. We enjoyed how he was able to cater to our wishes and added personal aspects to the ceremony.

We are laid back people who like to enjoy life and have fun, and we wanted our wedding to reflect this. John was happy to assist with this, and all guest commented on how they loved that the ceremony felt relaxed and laid back, and reflected Will and I and our approach to life.

Overall, Will and I were very happy with the wedding ceremony and enjoyed that everyone was able to join in on the celebration and fun.

Very satisfied with good inclusion of humour into the ceremony.


Also good organisation of the guests, giving them helpful information of where to be, petal throw, etc.


John adapted easily to making a few changes the day before the ceremony. Numerous comments from the guests that John did a good job.


John made it very easy for Kerrie and I to deliver our part during the ceremony.


Would highly recommend John.

John is the ultimate professional.


He knows his craft and ensures your ceremony reflects the personalities of the couple involved.


His experience is such that any last minute dramas are quickly and seamlessly dealt with. He ensures it is all about the couple and is easy and pleasurable to deal with.


We would have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone

10/10 in every aspect!


John is friendly, accommodating & went above & beyond to make sure the day was perfect.


We found John through the glowing recommendations from many different people. John made sure all the paperwork side of things was as hassle-free as possible. We had a rehearsal the day before the wedding where he encouraged us to rehearse as many times as we needed to make sure we were all comfortable in what we were doing. John was able to advise us of things that we would never have thought of, which is an amazing asset to have when you have never had to plan a wedding before!


John worked well with our photographer, our singer and the guests to ensure the ceremony was perfect – he even pulled together a perfectly timed ‘petal throw’ to help our photographer get the shot! Everyone we have spoken to have said how beautiful & personal our ceremony was. John was an absolute pleasure to work with. His experience & knowledge of weddings was a massive bonus. He was able to guide us & give advice in a way that put us at ease. We really appreciated how professional John was, and that he had good banter and tailored our ceremony to exactly how we wanted it.


We truly could not recommend John enough! Thank-you for being part of the best day of our lives!

John’s service was perfect.


He is easy to contact and responds quickly. Several guests came up to us after the ceremony and said that it was “So us!” And that it was perfect for us as a couple.

A lot of guests told us that the ceremony was beautiful and went really well. A few said that they had a tear come to their eye, and they never cry!

We were so happy with our ceremony. It was perfect, it was definitely US and we had fun.


I will recommend you to ANYONE newly engaged who is looking for a celebrant!

Overall we found you to be excellent John. You were very accommodating of our requests for the day and professional in the delivery.


Everyone could hear the ceremony and the music played at the appropriate times.

Everyone  enjoyed the ceremony and one particular guest said she would certainly recommend you to others if opportunity arises through her business.

We give permission for our feedback to be used.

Thank you once again for helping to make our day special

John was so friendly, professional and accommodating throughout the whole lead up to our wedding. From the booking process, the first meet up, the continuous communication between and the ceremony he was nothing short of amazing.


We wanted a ceremony that was just a bit different and John delivered ten fold. This man does his research and goes above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect!

I cannot recommend or thank him enough. I promise you, he will not disappoint!

We cannot thank John nearly enough.  His amazing service and professionalism for our beautiful day we could not fault.


He captured both of us and a little humour in our ceremony and it was absolutely perfect! So us.


We live several hours away from John, and he is so accommodating regarding meetings, makes you feel so comfortable and is more then happy to take time out of his day to explain and go through any queries you may have.


We didn’t have the smoothest or easiest time coming into our wedding, but the support John showed was well above his call as a celebrant.


Thanks so much John.

John took the time to understand what kind of atmosphere we wanted to create at our wedding and used his expertise to tailor our ceremony.

Thank you so much John for performing such a heartfelt ceremony that perfectly encapsulated us.

I can't recommend John highly enough!  He is friendly, warm, witty and very professional.


From start to finish his service, communication and organisational skills were faultless.  John explained things clearly, walked us through the whole process patiently and gave us excellent advice when we asked.


Nick and I both agree the ceremony was our favourite part of our wedding day thanks largely to John. John has a very real and calming presence; and the way he constructed and delivered "our story" made our ceremony one of a kind and truly special.


John feels like part of the family and will forever be in the happiest of our memories.

John was beyond incredible, from the moment we first met him to when we said 'I do', John was professional, but easy going and full of helpful tips that made the whole process absolutely seamless.

He answered any questions promptly and was able to tailor our ceremony to fit our personalities, which just made our day even more special.

Even though due to a change in weather and another hiccup on our behalf that changed what we had rehearsed, John was able to adapt and work with us and help us create a laid-back stress-free ceremony, all with his great sense of humour and professionalism. 

We would highly recommend John to anyone.


Robert & Kacey


John was absolutely fantastic to deal with from the first communication to the wedding day and even after with a couple of behind the scenes photos.

John didn’t get frustrated with me when I flipped the ceremony on its head only a couple of days before.


His unique and humorous introduction really summed up what we asked from him in our prior meeting.

Kacey and I would really recommend his services.


Thank you again John.

John was AMAZING.

We had the most personalised wedding we could think of because of John. 

I asked him to learn a Celtic infinity knot for our hand tying ceremony and he smashed it!!! 

My vows were also very, very long and he supported me in reading them. Same as our choices of everyone in our crowd to be drinking while we were being married.
John is very laid back which is exactly what we wanted! 

Could not have asked for better.

Thank you John! And also thank you to your wife and someone else for the hands you needed to practice our knot!

Firstly, thank you John, you provided us the most beautiful ceremony and ensured everything went to plan.


You were warm and welcoming from the moment we met you. You ensured our ceremony exuded our personalities with your creativity. You took the time to get to know us personally, our story and what we are like as a couple thus creating a ceremony that was perfectly suited to us.


You exhibited patience during a stressful time and your calm persona kept us relaxed (we needed this). 

We are so thankful for those that recommended you to us and would have no doubts recommending you as the best celebrant in the South Burnett.

Keep in touch. Paul and Theresa

John has a genuine and professional approach, and came up with some great ideas to make our day very, very special. John does not believe in “one ceremony fits all”.  He demonstrates that everyone deserves their own very special & unique ceremony.


We highly recommend John Carey as a Celebrant. Thank you John.

John told our story brilliantly.


It was such a magical day from start to finish and everything in between. We are the sum of all who surround us and we were so blessed, and still are, to be surrounded by so many loving people in our lives. Our wedding day was a true reflection of this and the happiest day of our lives.


Thank you so much John for your beautiful words and calming presence not only during the ceremony but the lead up as well.


A day we will never forget.

I highly recommend John as a marriage celebrant. He conducted our ceremony so perfectly and it was absolutely everything that we wanted.

We originally had our wedding booked for the Bunya Mountains and changed locations giving him over an hour's drive, he went above and beyond to cater for us and I am extremely grateful.


He maintained contact with me throughout the months of planning and even when I chopped and changed my mind quite a few times on a few things absolutely nothing was a drama for him.

A really great man and a fantastic marriage celebrant that I will be recommending to everyone I know if I hear of a wedding coming up.  5 Stars!! ⭐️

Thank you so much John.
