What they are saying.

If you need a little more convincing having me as your marriage celebrant, read further and hear it from some of my fellow industry professionals, as well as those who've previously stood in your shoes; my legendary couples!

  • Lauren & Brook

    We eloped!...Words can not express the gratitude for Shannons' professionalism, enthusiasm and easy going/can do attitude that made not only the officiating process easy and even fun for us, but also most importantly meaningful. Every detail was thought of and Shannon even came up with a creative and personal way to include a gender reveal at the end of our ceremony.  Everything felt so intimate and unique and she was hands down the best to deal with the whole process through. Thank you Shannon. Also, being in the wedding industry personally, we come across many suppliers and many that are very good at what they do however Shannon lives and breaths this and is next level as a master with words and handling any situation you could put her in and you would be so very lucky to have her a part of your special occasion. 

  • Natasha & Alecco

    We absolutely love Shannon! She's honestly the best celebrant going around. We had so many guests tell us how amazing she was and how they loved the ceremony (even some more traditional oldies)!
    She captured us and our essence so perfectly, and made our ceremony so personal. She had us (and our guests) laughing, crying, and laughing some more, and set the tone for an amazing wedding day. A superstar!
    Shannon was an absolute joy to work with, a complete professional yet so much fun at the same time. We couldn't recommend her highly enough!

  • Anne & Brian

    Shan is PHENOMENAL and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Every single one of our guests raved about Shan, the ceremony she crafted, and how well it reflected us as a couple, from the moment we started making the rounds after the ceremony, throughout the reception, and even during post-wedding recovery events. One guest even said they wanted to get married again just to have Shan do the ceremony.

    All aspects of working with Shan were amazing from the first meeting to all of her recommendations for various suppliers to the planning meeting and, finally, the big day! Shan’s expertise, confidence, and good nature put me at ease throughout the entire process, especially as we encountered some unforeseen potential complications close to the day (surrounded by two weeks of glorious weather, unexpected thunderstorms were due to start exactly at the time of our garden wedding; and about 90% of our guests travelling just as COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and travel restrictions kicked in). In the end, our fantastic team of suppliers and Shan pushed the ceremony forward a couple of minutes and we managed to get our first kiss in as the first drop of rain splashed down on us (without making the ceremony seem rushed); and, as Shan pointed out, ours was probably the last international event in Melbourne for the foreseeable future.

    You will not regret teaming up with Shan for your wedding, I promise!

  • Tash & Leigh

    I can honestly say that Shannon made our wedding day so much more special, fun and exciting! Just from the phone calls before the big day, she new exactly what me and my partner were like and tailored a ceremony that suited us to a tee.  She is simply amazing! She had the whole crowd laughing at the right times and reaching for the tissues as well. I couldn’t recommend this lady highly enough, she is bloody amazing at what she does! Much love Shan

  • Veronica & Jonathan

    Where do I start with Shan? My goodness, from the moment of meeting her, Jonathan and I knew she would be our celebrant. She just got us and understood how we wanted our day to run!

    Shan is amazing! She is your “go to gal” for everything wedding related and also just plain life advice related! She is there for everything and I mean everything! Freaking out about how to have your hair on the day? Message Shan. Not sure what colour scheme to go with? Message Shan. Worried about the weather for your big day? Well, Shan will smack that worry right out of you.

    I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful woman! She even converted my father in law who is an avid church wedding enthusiast to a civil ceremony lover!

    Honestly, Shan makes the whole wedding experience so enjoyable and the ceremony itself, well that’s on a whole other level. Shan really gets to know her couples, she becomes one of your friends and you just know she genuinely cares about her couples, their big day and their future together!

    Shan, we would pick you as our celebrant every day! We love you!

  • Teagan & Mark

    Being fortunate enough to witness Shan officiate many weddings prior to ours we had zero doubt in our minds that she would play such a pivotal role in our wedding lead up and ceremony, it was one of the most comfortable choices we had to make in the whole wedding. Besides the initial congratulations we received from guests after we were legally wedded, everyone's next comment was on the ceremony and how fantastic Shan was. She read the play immediately and prepared a very relaxed and lighthearted ceremony that suited us immensely and we are still laughing at it now! Due to impending restrictions with public gatherings, we decided to bring our wedding forward with only a few days notice. Shannon was one of the most important suppliers to us that we wanted to make sure could do the date change. We are beyond thankful to Shannon for being a rock during all the last minute craziness and her steady hand and endless support was so calming. I don't think we realised how much we needed it at the time but are so appreciative of it looking back now. Once you see or are a part of a wedding with Shan, its impossible to imagine a wedding with out her. Her positive attitude, quick wit, attention to detail, and all round good vibes are far beyond any other celebrant we have ever seen and if you are lucky enough to book Shannon, it's a real no-brainer if you ask us! Teags and Mark xx

  • Sophie & Jake

    Where to start with this amazing lady? Our wedding day wouldn’t have been what it was without Shannon! She wrote a ceremony that was purely us. She takes the time to get to know each couple and made us feel valued with every encounter that we shared. Our guests couldn’t stop commenting on how perfect our ceremony was! Tears of laughter and joy! You can’t go wrong with Shannon! She is a pure professional and the best decision we made.

  • Dean & Dave

    Wow!! Could not be happier with our choice in celebrant. Shannon was absolutely amaazing!! She really set the tone for the rest of the night which was full of fun, laughter and lots of love in the air. It’s been a week since the wedding and people are still commenting on how great our celebrant was. Her friendly outgoing personality was infectious and she had all of our guests in stitches, including us! Would recommend her to ANYONE wanting a fun and lively atmosphere at their wedding that will be remembered by everyone.

  • Leish & Dan

Look no us Shannon is your woman to make you officially "official"!! From the very bottom of our hearts XO Leish & Dan

  • Rosie & Ben

    If you want a wedding where the ceremony is not the boring bit and that is completely unique to you as a couple, Shan is your gal! She delivered an incredible ceremony that had our guests both laughing and crying. Shan helped us set the tone for an incredible day and we will be forever grateful! 10/10 would recommend!

  • Jemma & Matthew

    Shannon is incredible and so talented at what she does! Our ceremony was one of our favourite parts of the day. We had endless comments about how exceptional Shannon is and the fun, loved up, relaxed atmosphere she created flowed seamlessly into the rest of the night. Shannon also made connections with our family members, which is so above and beyond! The chapel was full of laughter, heartfelt moments and most importantly, it represented us perfectly as a couple. We will be forever grateful.

  • Alisha & Brendan

    Shannon absolutely NAILED our ceremony. She was captivating, lighthearted, funny and most importantly told our story in a way that was really "us" and set the mood for the whole day. We still have guests telling us how impressed they were with Shannon and how our ceremony was presented in a way they had never seen before and was far from the traditional ceremonies they were used to... which is exactly what we wanted! Shannon will keep you calm, make you laugh and make you feel like you have known her for years. We can't thank you enough Shan for making our day so special.

  • Annelies & Paul

    Shannon’s ceremony style and presentation is second to none, and we have had nothing but positive responses from our friends and family about how she truly captured us as a couple. The ceremony was fun, easy going and the perfect start to our dream day! We couldn’t recommend Shannon highly enough! From the first meeting with Shannon we knew she was the celebrant for us as she put us at ease and we were confident she was the only choice for us. Thank you will never be enough.

  • Dan Brannan, Photographer

    Wow, what can I say? As a wedding photographer who has seen hundreds of ceremonies, I can honestly say that Shannon is elite at what she does. She is the Michael Jordan of celebrants! She is warm, funny, down to earth, calm and above all, she just gets it! I love photographing a Shannon Jeans ceremony as I know she will create something real and honest for the couple without any cheese or faff! I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Thank you to the fabulous photographers who've captured images used on this site.
