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!

We were kept well informed of anything we needed to change, or what legal requirements were involved.


We were both very, very satisfied with all the little personal touches. Thank. you. You can tell you have a great deal of experience.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves. I thank you again for the smooth facilitation of the wedding ceremony.  I would highly recommend you to anyone that asks about celebrants.


We were very happy with your services and I wouldn't change a thing. Guests loved your personal touches and you catered to our smooth running of the ceremony.


Thank you for your tissues!

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

Josh and I could not have found a better celebrant!

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.

Highly recommend!!


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.


John also offered valuable advice regarding all aspects of the day and given he has ‘seen it all’.


John can give you a realistic idea of what works.

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

We were highly impressed with the way John conducted his services.


From our first meeting to the actual wedding ceremony, he tailored everything to suit our personal style and story.

He is professional and personable, efficient and reliable.


John truly went above and beyond and we would highly recommend him!

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.

I had the pleasure of working with John at a recent wedding, he is truly a unique celebrant with the perfect mix of good humour and individualised heartfelt words.


From a wedding photographers' perspective he is a breath of fresh air.


Highly recommend!

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.

Thank you John for a beautiful, professional and eloquent ceremony. Your style was perfect for our day and we would highly recommend you to anyone.


We were especially impressed with your organisation and communication in the lead up to the day. We also appreciate your patience as we were both so busy in the lead up to the wedding however found you made the process much less stressful than it could have been.


We both thoroughly enjoyed working with you and are a bit sad the wedding is over.


Keep in touch. Paul and Theresa

John is amazing, such a down to earth person who truly cares about your marriage.


He is a person who helps you feel calm when you are nervous on your big day. His professionalism is on point from words, to how he speaks and how he dressed for my big day.


He gives you what you ask for, he always is very helpful and answers any questions you have.


Thank you so much for everything.

We were absolutely delighted with the way John researched to make our Golden Wedding Vow Renewal truly personal.


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 is an incredible celebrant!


He was great to work with and had an eye for turning our ideas into a beautiful, flowing, specialised ceremony.


I wouldn't go past John in your search for a wedding celebrant. We had a great, fun time at our ceremony!


Thank you for everything 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.
