Amazing ceremonies from a Celebrant who cares.
I’m Jarrad – a young-ish, very fun Sunshine Coast Marriage Celebrant, and I have been fortunate enough to be invited to officiate a lot of weddings over the last couple of years. In that time I have learnt a few things about what couples look for in choosing their Marriage Celebrant for their special day. To sum it up in a handful of words – someone who is personal, enthusiastic, professional and organised, engaging, compassionate, caring, articulate, respectful, light hearted, unique, down to earth and fun.
What they don’t want is someone who gets in all the photos, reads directly off a script, talks monotone, forgets people names, arrives late, refuses to do a rehearsal, tells awkward jokes, is opinionated and self absorbed, attention seeking, arrogant, poorly dressed and hard to hear.
I am not your stereotypical Celebrant and this isn’t a job that I do to pass time away. I am serious about you having a wedding that you and your guests will rave about for years to come. The great thing I love about being a Celebrant is that I have met many couples along the way who I now call my friends.
There are no unicorns, no rainbows, no fairy dust and no butterflies at the weddings I officiate. Just an awesome experience in which you get to enjoy your day knowing you have someone on your team who truly cares about what they do.
A ceremony that’s truly about you. One that you’ll never forget. Crafted and delivered by someone who truly cares about giving you the best experience possible. Personal attention, professional presentation, and above all FUN! Read more about Jarrad’s services….
Thank you to all of the incredible couples i’ve had the honour of marrying. It’s a very humbling experience knowing that my presence on their special day was appreciated. Here are some of their words to sum up their experiences….
A Military background and a softie at heart – Jarrad’s not your typical Marriage Celebrant. A young-ish husband and father that loves living on the Sunshine Coast and is passionate about his job as your Marriage Celebrant…..
Jarrad exceeded our expectations and certainly rang true to his reputation as being one of the best in the business!
Jarrad was recommended to us by Maleny Manor and was described as being one of the best in the business. What an amazing human he turned out to be. My husband and I met him, and we instantaneously clicked. I don’t think people put enough thought into who their celebrant is going to be - but basically they play one of the most important roles in a wedding as they set the entire tone of the day!
The ceremony was funny, easy going, and filled with so much love. It was so personal that it felt as though Jarrad was one of our close friends who had known us for years. I think people where blown away at how different the ceremony was. Jarrad has a remarkable way of including all guests, they were so engaged the entire time which made it extra special for my husband and I. Jarrad exceeded our expectations and certainly rang true to his reputation as being one of the best in the business. I could not recommend him more!

Everyone is still raving about you from our wedding (including us)!
Jarrad, we are both sitting here looking at the screen and it really is hard to find the words to thank you enough for everything you have done. What a truly incredible human being you are. You are so passionate about the couples you marry, and it is so clear how much you love what you do. Everyone is still raving about you from our wedding (including us)! We had mums at the wedding asking us if you yourself were married!
It was so important for us to know that the person who was marrying us knew what it was like to face the challenges of Defence Force life, and you are truly everything we could have ever hoped for. We had such an amazing day, our ceremony was absolutely phenomenal, everyone loved your cheekiness and your sas, your sense of humour and also how professional you were! You knew exactly what you were doing, and you made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease. We really can't wait to catch up with you when we are in your neck of the woods next.
Daniel and I hope you are so proud of yourself for everything you have done, you make such a big difference to everyone couple on one of the biggest days of their lives. We can't wait to catch up for a coffee with you soon Jarrad! Give your family all the best from us too! All the love in the world

Jarrad goes above and beyond and was a really special part of our wedding day. He's a super talented celebrant and effective bride-whisper!
If you're getting married, you need to call Jarrad Bayliss immediately! From the moment we met Jarrad we knew we wanted him to marry us. He is genuine, funny, honest and sincerely interested in creating a ceremony tailored to our personalities and relationship. We knew we wanted a quirky, untraditional ceremony with a lot of laughs and a lot of heart. But we had no idea how to actually do this.
Jarrad was SO creative and came up with a really special ceremony that we will never forget. We've had so many friends ask for his details after our wedding and he's already married a couple. That's a strong endorsement of the kind of ceremony Jarrad creates. During the ceremony, Jarrad had us laughing, crying and laughing again. It was a very colourful, intimate and fun atmosphere with loads of personality, exactly what we wanted. Even leading up to our wedding day, Jarrad offered constant support and was always available to talk through any questions or ideas we had. Jarrad goes above and beyond and was a really special part of our wedding day. He's a super talented celebrant and effective bride-whisper! Thank you Jarrad.
