Hi! My name is Sue Jack and I am a marriage celebrant. I am thrilled to share your wedding with you. I am fun, friendly, happy, modern and creative – I’ll share ideas with you and create a ceremony that is truly yours. You can find me at firstname.lastname@example.org; my website www.truyyours.com.au; or call on 0418 411 683. I am based in the upper Blue Mountains in New South Wales.
Servicing Sydney and surrounds and Blue Mountains and surrounds.
I am organised. I care. I want to make your day special.
I remember when I was getting married and we were looking for a celebrant. It was difficult to choose! What I looked for and what I expect you might also be considering was:
- Does this celebrant listen to what I am saying?
- Do I think this celebrant will embrace all the details I want in my ceremony?
- Do I feel comfortable talking to this celebrant?
- Is the celebrant organised, articulate and confident?
Regarding these questions I can tell you that my business name – Truly Yours – really reflects how I feel about conducting your ceremony. I have conducted a variety of ceremonies, very detailed with numerous readings, some with hand-fastening and whiskey box rituals, some just short and sweet with a view to getting on with the celebrations! The day is not about me – it is about the two of you, your family and friends. I am there to make sure the ceremony is conducted lawfully; the paperwork is correct and everything is signed.
I will happily provide sample ceremonies, readings and vows to assist you in designing and structuring your ceremony so you get exactly what you want.
Your vows, your readings and the structure of your ceremony makes it personal and intimate – I will look after all the legal requirements for you. I will delight in hearing your stories, how you met, how the proposal went, and to help you create the perfect wedding for you.
At a park? In a chapel? On the beach? Where do you want your ceremony to take place? Let’s find a location that has fond memories or a place where memories will be created. A beautiful spot, a beautiful ceremony, a beautiful day.
Whether you are having a simple, intimate ceremony or hundreds of guests the day is about the two of you. The ceremony will be personal, one that will bring a smile to the faces of your friends and family and one that reflects your personalities.
Rituals and Readings
I can show you a number of rituals that can be included in your ceremony – the ancient Cletic ritual of hand-fastening and the whiskey box ritual are two of my favourites. Readings also give you an opportunity to give a friend or relative a special part in your ceremony – readings don’t have to be long and flowery – one of my favourites is I Learned All I Know About Love from My Dog.
What does the fee cover?
I have four standard packages and we can customise them any way you like. All packages include unlimited phone and email contact and the registration of your marriage and provision of the official certificate of marriage.
Most packages include a rehearsal which is of great benefit – especially if you are having children in the procession. We take this opportunity to time the walk down the aisle to the music you have chosen to give a truly professional edge to your entrance.
I am also fully insured and belong to a celebrant organisation.
After the Ceremony
So you are married – what happens now? I will register your marriage with the Department of Births Deaths and Marriages and will have your official certificate delivered by registered mail. This is the certificate you need to use to change you name if that is your plan. This is all included in the cost of your ceremony.
Feel free and comfortable to get in touch – let’s find out if I am available for your wedding and then get together to see if I am the best fit for your special day.
Here is what some of my couples have said about my performance as their celebrant!
We cannot thank Sue enough for her exceptional organisation and communication throughout the planning of our wedding. Everything ran so smoothly and we could not have chosen a better person for the job. Such a pleasure to work with! Thank you so much Sue for making our ceremony so special.
– Brooke and Dane
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We are so grateful. You did a fabulous job – we couldn’t be happier. Sue was a fantastic celebrant for our wedding earlier this year, she helped us so much along the way and we felt she went over and beyond to make our day as special as it was, she took care of everything and put so much thought and detail into our ceremony. She took control and everything ran smoothly thanks to Sue! Highly recommend!
– Taylah and Tim
Sue was excellent in the lead up and planning of our big day, everything was organised and we didn’t have to worry about anything. She had her work cut out for her wrangling the groom and his 3 brothers, but she did a great job. Thanks so much for everything Sue, and being a part of our special day. You made everything easy and stress free and we thank you for that.
– Mikayla and Blair
Bec and I can’t thank Sue enough for her professionalism, communication and patience in helping us achieve what was the best day possible, 5 stars!
– Bec and Kylie
We are so happy with how our day turned out, thank you so much for playing a big part in our day, it was truly an amazing ceremony!
– Maddison and Jade
Sue was our first choice to be our celebrant for our wedding. Communication was easy, Sue was exceptionally organised and took away a lot of stress for us. She is bright and bubbly and made our ceremony everything we imagined. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Sue conduct our wedding ceremony. Thanks again Sue!
– Natalie and Jake
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Sue Jack recently. She conducted our wedding with the upmost professionalism, humour and passion. Sue became a friend through the process and she was there for us whenever we needed her. Sue made our day as special as we wished it would be. She worked with our adult children to include them and she encouraged their input with great patience and humour. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
– Denise and Garry
Sue presented an organised and personalised service for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us and answered all of our many questions! We had a rehearsal the week before and we were made to feel familiar and comfortable with the proceedings for the actual day. Thanks Sue!
– Molly and Ben
Ben and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being part of our big day! From the start, we knew you were the perfect fit for our relaxed, romantic and love filled day, and you were amazing from that first meeting till we got our marriage certificate. So warm and relaxed, yet extremely professional and we could ask for anything else! We hope you enjoyed your day just like we did.
– Nicole and Ben
I just want to say a MAMMOTH thank you. Tim and I absolutely loved having you run our ceremony. It was so natural and fun. Everyone was saying how fantastic you were and how simple but beautiful the service was! We cannot thank you enough.
– Rosie and Tim
Thank you so much for your assistance and providing us with a beautiful ceremony. The day was perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing.
– Kaylah and Sheyon
We couldn’t have picked a better celebrant than Sue! We wanted the vibe at our wedding to be very relaxed and easy going, and finding a celebrant to fit that, and not take us or themselves too seriously is difficult, so we were incredibly lucky to find it in Sue. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were completely abreast of the way things were going to go and included us in every element of the detail planning. Being in the know was invaluable! Most of all, Sue made our wedding day easy, and that’s what truly counts. Thanks Sue, we are very grateful.
– Finlay and Connor
Sue married us and honestly it was the best ceremony I could have asked for! We highly recommend her services – even married guests were saying that it was the best ceremony that they had seen – thanks Sue!
– Shannon and Kevin
Leading up to our marriage we met with several marriage celebrants – one of the best decisions we made was choosing Sue to officiate our marriage. When we first met Sue on a cold wet day in Leura, we immediately felt comfortable. Sue’s warm, caring and compassionate personality made everything comfortable. It felt like she was a part of our family. Thank you Sue! We are so happy to have met you and have you officiate our marriage. You were truly fantastic
– Renee and Fliss
We are beyond happy that we chose Sue as our celebrant. From start to finish she made the process so fun and easy, especially considering we lived out of the area. After getting to know us Sue took on board all of our ideas and crafted the perfect ceremony. We had so many people comment on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was. We could not recommend Sue more highly.
– Jess and Mike
As soon as we met Sue, we knew we were going to be in good hands. She made the whole process easy from the first meeting, until we had hold of our official marriage certificate. Sue was professional and very organised, however still was able to laugh and joke around with us. She was great in ensuring that the ceremony really captured our personalities and laid back style. She responded promptly to all my emails (even the silly ones) and was flexible with our requests. We would both highly recommend Sue.
– Matt and Mel
Sue is caring, helpful and supportive. We found Sue to be very professional in a friendly manner. Tony and I could not have picked a better person to be our celebrant. Thank you Sue, you did an amazing job and you helped me to be strong without even knowing. The ceremony was so much more than I could have ever imagined. It was beautiful.
– Tony and Cordelia
Sue’s services as celebrant were excellent and without fault. She was the perfect choice for our special day. She went above and beyond, even contacting us when she was in Canberra to follow up with everything. We changed the date and times on her lots of times and she never got annoyed and was always professional. She even happily abided with our weird requests. Thank you so much Sue.
– Kelly Anne and Nathan
For us, the search for a celebrant was a difficult one. We knew what we wanted, but felt like no one was listening. Until we found Sue. Everything was easy, and we felt like someone finally understood us and our views. Our ceremony was short, and sweet and exactly how we wanted it. Sue was amazing to work with and took care of all the little details that you don’t even realise matter. We are so glad Sue was a part of our day.
– Megan and Chris
