An interview with Queensland’s No.1 Celebrant
With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants
It is such a huge honour for Jamie to be Queensland’s no.1 recommended Marriage Celebrant on Google, and we are simply in disbelief at all the amazing reviews that our couples write about their experience with each of us!
We are so grateful for all the support and kind words we have received from the wedding industry and we feel very privileged to have this milestone recognised by WEOA, who recently interviewed Jamie and featured the interview on their blog.
The team at WEOA even awarded Brisbane City Celebrants an outstanding excellence award in recognition of all of our dedication, commitment and passion in our role as Celebrants.
We are so excited to announce that one of our most dedicated members has reached an impressive milestone.
Jamie of Brisbane City Celebrants was recently named Google’s Number 1, Most Recommended Celebrant for Brisbane and Queensland. What’s even more exciting is that his wife and partner in business, Ciara, is the 2nd Most Recommended Celebrant for Brisbane!
This wonderful couple are a dedicated pair of Marriage Celebrants who have been crafting unique and beautiful wedding ceremonies for years. As well as having countless 5 star testimonials from happy clients, they were recognised as one of the top three Celebrants in Queensland at the WEOA Awards for Excellence in 2014.
We caught up with the proud couple about this fantastic achievement and tips they have for couples when looking for a celebrant of their own.
Jamie, how do you feel about being the most highly recommended Marriage Celebrant in Queensland?
The best thing about achieving this milestone is the hearing that my clients have had an amazing day and that I have been a part of making their day even more special. Most of my couples haven’t been married before so they don’t have a comparison, however they know if it was a stress free process, if everything went seamlessly, and if the ceremony was a huge success!
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
Every wedding is unique. I love getting to be a part of the happiness at such a special moment in peoples lives.
Do you have any tips for couples who are looking for a celebrant?
There are such a huge variety of Celebrants available, so when it comes to finding a Celebrant that you gel with, there really is the right one out there for every couple.
Make sure you ask your prospective Celebrant if you will get to proof your ceremony wording so there are no unwanted surprises on the day. Also ask if they provide a high quality PA System so everyone can clearly hear and enjoy your ceremony and vows.
Finally, if they have any video clips of them performing a ceremony – watch them! This is a great way to not only see how they present themselves for a ceremony, but if they have the couple perfectly centered without their backs to anyone, if they appear to coordinate a smooth and seamless ceremony, put the couple at ease and if the tone that they present the ceremony in is appropriate and reflective of the exciting and happy celebration of love that a wedding is!
Do you have any tips for couples planning their ceremony?
Make the ceremony yours. If there is anything that doesn’t sit comfortably with you (such as a giving away or garter toss), don’t feel pressured to do it, or change it and do it your own unique way. You will enjoy your ceremony so much more and your guests will love your personal touches!
We are very proud of Jamie and Ciara and hope that they keep up their fantastic work.
At WEOA, we love to hear about the achievements of our members. After all, they are the elite of the wedding and events industry and it’s always great to see their hard work and dedication pay off. Plus, it’s always an excuse for a celebration!”
We’re off to pop open the champas now!
