My Experience

I’m Jan McCallum, a fabulously creative marriage celebrant. I am happy to design, write and perform your ceremony alongside you. I am an accredited celebrant with over 12 years experience conducting ceremonies.

My Style

I have a great sense of humour and my style is relaxed with warmth and dignity. I have a package with everything you need to give you a complete picture of a ceremony and how its put together, you are welcome to either choose from this or create your own.

Meeting and rehearsing together

I like to meet with you twice at my home or yours, to plan and discuss your ceremony.

The second interview will be to go over your ceremony, which will then be typed up in draft form. We will also set a date and time for a rehearsal if you so wish, if not we will discuss relevant details of the day. e.g. how we are standing, music etc.

Ongoing support

I am available if you have any queries, and encourage you to phone if you are unsure of anything we have discussed. I will give you ongoing support up to, and on your wedding day, where I will guide and support you through the ceremony.

I feel strongly that my work as a celebrant is a great privilege, and I trust that you both will have a great deal of pleasure and enjoyment planning your wedding, and I am looking forward to being part of your special day.


Hi Jan, Greg and I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful ceremony, which also made our daughter Lucy feel a big part of it. Your sense of humour and personal touch was great. We had lots of comments as to how you captured the mood we wanted to create, which was fantastic.

Thank you Nicky and Greg.

Jan, Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day as magical as it was. The ceremony was so touching and it was exactly as we wanted it to be. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!!! It was so very real and managed to capture our personalities so well.

My favourite part was when we found out what each other had said. All the work you did in the lead-up was also valued – from the meetings we had at your place to the emails where we discussed options back and forth. You are so professional yet you made us feel really relaxed. It is as if you are part of our family now as you had so much to do with making the moment so special. Your sincerity and love shone through.

Love and best wishes, Joanne and Quintin xxx

Hello Jan, I wanted to email you to thank you again for your contribution on our special day. We are absolutely thrilled with how everything went.
We had so many compliments on our choice in celebrant and I have even passed on your details to another bride to be and will continue to recommend you. You have been so warm and accommodating from when we first met you and on the day you really delivered, making our ceremony as special as we could hope for. Friends and family were emphatic in saying it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been at.

Warm regards, Hayley and Andrew.
P.S. I liked your outfit by the way, very sophisticated and appropriate :-)
