Hello lovers!

I am Jo, and I am a lover of loving love.

Splash some colour in the sky, turn up the tunes, hand ​me a G&T and make me laugh and I'm all yours. I mean ​you're here... so there's probably a chance you already ​found the person you call yours. But now you can have ​me too, an instant bestie to help get you 'hitched', to ​think about all the little things you haven't and to help ​you have the time of your life.

I am a Commonwealth registered marriage celebrant and ​a communications guru with more than 20 years of event ​management experience. I am passionate about ​kindness, accessibility and inclusion.

I'm all about making your event uniquely you, taking the ​stress out of your big day and bringing the FUN!

Ways I can help

As your celebrant

Let's make sure your wedding ceremony or ​vow renewal is undeniably, magically, and ​wonderfully you. None of the boring stuff.

I can have your rad guests in fits of laughter ​one minute to sobbing with tears the next as I ​share your love story in a way that no-one will ​ever forget.

Or if you prefer- we can keep it perfectly ​simple as we make your marriage legal.

Your little legends and animal children are not ​only welcome but encouraged.

As your event


Want an intimate gathering, a giant ​party or a a wedding festival?

I'll take on all the messy, time ​consuming bits of event planning, so ​that you can just do the fun stuff.

Booking venues, vendors, arranging ​guest lists, invites, website, run sheets, ​table plans and RSVP's and saving you ​cash is my jam.

I also know a thing or two about making ​sure your event is accessible and ​inclusive for all your guests.

As your event


Want to be free to truly enjoy your event ​without worrying about every little thing ​going to plan?

I'll answer everyone's questions, manage ​your vendors, handle the chaos and ​keep everything running to schedule, so ​you don't have to worry about a thing.

Sit back, drink the champaign and dance ​baby dance!

As your Master of ​Ceremonies

Bit scared to let your drunk uncle loose with the mic?

As your MC I'll set the mood, bring the fun, keep things moving and make sure it's a your guests leave with a smile on their faces.

Let your friends and family members enjoy the night job free.

What clients say

"Jo’s style set the tone for the day, making sure we and ​our guests had a fun and joyful day. We absolutely ​recommend Jo as a celebrant." - C & K

"Without hyperbole, Jo is the perfect celebrant. Warm ​and engaging, Jo made all our guests feel part of the ​day with a mix of sincerity and humour. Best of all, Jo ​made all this look effortless, even though I'm sure it ​wasn't!" - J & R

“Jo made the whole process easy, stepping it out so it ​wasn’t overwhelming. On the day she got in and got ​things done that we didn’t even expect her to – ​working with the arbour supplier on set up, making sure ​seats and flowers were all organised, even liaising with ​the caterers at the reception! She thought of things we ​didn’t, and just got it done." -K & C

The Love Folk acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where we live, work and conduct events, the Wadawurrung people. We pay our respect to their elders; past, present and ​emerging. The Wadawurrung people have been sharing stories on this land for 25,000 years, and I feel very grateful as a celebrant to be able to tell people’s stories on this land today.
