Jaya Bargwanna Civil Celebrant

BESPOKE CEREMONIES.  NEWCASTLE, HUNTER VALLEY & SURROUNDS.

WHO AM I?

AND WHY I'D LOVE TO BE YOUR CELEBRANT.

...

Hi – I’m Jaya.

I'M A NEWCASTLE / HUNTER VALLEY / PORT STEPHENS BASED CELEBRANT WHO IS READY TO PUT TOGETHER THE CEREMONY OF YOUR DREAMS!

SO, ABOUT ME -

I’m fun, playful and love everything about love. My Mum would describe me as organised, lively and a bit of a dork, although I strongly deny the dork part.


FIVE QUICK FACTS:

1. my proudest moment (ok, maybe not proudest) was skateboarding down bar beach carpark, in stilettos. 

2. my little bro is a giant and everyone (including my husband) thinks that i'm the younger sibling

3. i'm a registered / practising pharmacist, a licensed surf coach and an authorised celebrant (duH!)

4. I always have cold feet (in a literal sense)

5. I cannot tolerate chilli or spice, which is quite ironic considering my dad was born in india.



...

In the six months prior to becoming a marriage celebrant, I attended 4 weddings and a funeral (no joke!) and celebrated the birth of my baby girl.

These celebrations of life and love made me realise that a celebrant can MAKE YOUR CEREMONY! i LOVE love, in every way, shape and form. so, if you're wondering, that is why i became a celebrant.

I am so passionate about what I do, that I have even created some vows for you love BIRDS. So, before you take me, as your official third wheel – you know what you’re getting yourself into.



my vows to you.

I, jaya bargwanna civil celebrant, take thee, you coupla' legends, to be your fun, vibrant and awesome celebrant.

i promise that i will marry you - legally and legitimately

that you will feel relaxed and totally at ease about your big day

i promise to deliver all the warm and fuzzies and that both you and your guests will feel all giddy inside

and to help you nail that 'first kiss', get the perfect confetti photo and to hustle your friends and family into a big group shot

i promise not to wear my sunday best, to preach about marriage or talk about myself

instead, to create a FLIPPIN' AMAZING ceremony full of fun, personality and ALL ABOUT YOU!

above all, I promise that I will stand by the two of you and tell your LOVE STORY, because it's your wedding day and you deserve to be celebrated.

but

i can't promise that I won't become besties with one of your relatives (looking at you, uncle rob!)

Or that I won't tear up during your vows (it's my favourite part of the ceremony)

or, that you won't want to re-live your ceremony again AND again AND again - vow renewal, anyone?

An Idea is Born

My husband calls me ‘Vutes’ and my daughter calls me dada (almost kid, nice try!), and I’d love for you to call me for a chat about your special day. (CHEESEY, I KNOW!)
