Hey there, I'm John

About Me

I legitimately have the best job in the world, as a celebrant I have the ability to turn a Facebook relationship status from ‘Engaged’ to ‘Married’!

And as a DJ and MC I get to help you keep the party going and bring the vibes through to the reception.

People remember three things from an event, the service, the food and the entertainment – don’t let these be the parts you place the least value on!

Marriage Celebrant

Relax and enjoy your special day that you worked so hard to plan!

As a marriage celebrant, it's my job to balance the love with the LOLs and to serve the ceremony without making myself the centre of attention, a bit like the bass and drums in a rock song, not stealing the show but creating a situation that without them, the song would suck!

Your wedding day is an important day full of emotions, excitement and a lot of moving parts. As your marriage celebrant, my role is to be the conductor, gracefully guiding the ceremony. From the exchange of vows to the laughter shared with family and friends, every moment is carefully managed to make your celebration truly unforgettable.

Whether you envision a classic and timeless affair or a more contemporary celebration, I am dedicated to bringing your vision to life! I work with you to plan a day that is uniquely yours, guiding you and providing advice from someone with years of experience. We can work together to create a personalised experience that you can enjoy forever.

DJ

Take your event to the next level with a professional wedding DJ!

As a DJ, it's more than just pressing play or being a human jukebox, my experience has taught me how to read a room.

Let's say you have 100 people at your reception, it's likely those 100 people would never be in the same room for any other reason, which leaves us with a very broad range of music tastes within the venue. It's my job to find the sweet spot and keep everyone energised, dancing and happy!

Elevate your celebration with the expertise of a seasoned DJ who goes beyond simply playing music. I craft an unforgettable atmosphere tailored to the unique experience you want to provide at your wedding or event!

MC

Let an experienced and skilled MC take the stress out of your day!

As an MC, voice is important but it's secondary to being a timekeeper. You may have a friend or family member who is a great public speaker and a little bit funny (maybe), but how will they go keeping the show on the road?

Can they liaise with the venue & other suppliers whilst keeping everything on time? What would they do if speeches were running 20 minutes over time and the kitchen was ready to bring out the main course that's starting to go cold? You can find out, or you can put your trust in someone who has done this countless times since 2005!

Further, as far as voice is concerned, I have had the honour of training with radio & TV host, voice over artists, journalists and voice coaches to make myself the best possible wedding and event host!

ABOVE & BEYOND! The ceremony was performed to perfection with guests laughing, booing the rain and joining in on our promises. John truly knows how to work a crowd with his people skills and quick wit, making sure we had a great time and the everything went off without a hitch. John is not only an amazing celebrant but an excellent MC and DJ! Getting everyone up and dancing for the reception and announcing the speeches and plan for the night. Truly excellent at what he does, thank you for being a part of our day!

Honestly the best celebrant/ MC/ DJ it’s not often you find people like John he was willing to bend over backwards to help us preparing for the day. And then on the day went above and beyond helping wherever he could we still have people talking to us about how good the MC/DJ was John’s song choices were excellent he had the whole dance floor up and dancing. We really appreciate all you did for us and we will recommend you to everyone thanks again for the best night love Josh and Kell

John was so attentive, helped us through the whole getting married process, he was not only our celebrant but a friend to message at 1am when I couldn’t decided on something for the wedding. He made our day so special, all our guests loved him and couldn’t believe how good of job he did. He showed up with passion, charisma and a sense of humour, perfect for our special day. The best part about John being our celebrant was that he was also our DJ and mc, three in one! Thankyou John for everything🩷

John was our triple threat celebrant, DJ and MC for our wedding. Look no further when doing your research, just book him and you will not be disappointed! He provided a heartfelt and witty ceremony that had people asking if he was our friend as he told our story so well. As MC he made sure the proceedings ran smoothly and as DJ got everyone up on the dance floor, across generations, dancing all night! In between all of this he also looked after us and made sure we'd had a chance to eat, to drink and catch our breath in the chaotic and fun whirlwind of our wedding day. We couldn't recommend him highly enough!

We had John as the Celebrant, DJ and MC at our wedding. All three of those jobs were done perfectly. As a celebrant he was calm, funny and reassuring, as our DJ he took our song requests to get our vibe and built a perfect playlist around it. Lastly as our MC he made sure everything ran so smoothly. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

I can't remember who recommended John to us but I'm so glad they did! From our first video call we knew we had found our celebrant (and DJ and MC). In the leadup to our wedding John was easy to talk to, but always professional, well-organised, and more than happy to deal with the millions of questions I asked. What impressed me most was how smoothly everything ran; I had some pretty tight deadlines and he was able to crowd-control and keep everything on track. John was also extremely flexible, letting me introduce last-minute changes and song requests, squeezing in extra speeches (including when my brother stole the microphone off him - sorry!), making backup plans if things failed, and checked to see that my husband and I had enough to eat and drink during reception. I could not fault him at any stage, and any couple would be wise at choosing him for a celebrant, DJ or MC (or all three!). And bonus - all of our marriage paperwork is taken care of! Professional, fun and just awesome, he helped make our day absolutely perfect and I can't thank him enough for that.

Filmed a recent wedding alongside John, and what a wonderful experience it was! For someone who is the best of three worlds, Celebrant, MC and DJ, he needs to be incredibly organised. And organised John was. Throughout the lead up to the wedding day, and on the day itself, John's communication was extremely timely and clear, something that he passes on to his couples throughout their experience with him. As a wedding videographer, communication from the Celebrant/MC is critical in ensuring all moments are captured, and John did not disappoint. Highly recommend John as your wedding Celebrant/DJ/MC. Thanks John, and looking forward to working together in future!

John was our marriage celebrant, DJ & MC, we have nothing but accolades for him! In the lead up to our wedding John held conversations with us & we truely felt like he understood us & what we were looking for and he delivered on the night! We loved the direction he took our ceremony in, both us, our friends & family had so much fun, with many complimenting the ceremony, it was the perfect length & set the vibe for the rest of our night. The music throughout the night was perfection and met our brief. We had sooooo many compliments, our friends and family were loving the music and quite obviously the dance floor was filled the entire night! Even the kids were dancing! It was a pleasure working with John and he outperformed our expectations! We can highly recommend his services.

John Edney was a great celebrant, DJ and MC for the night. He made sure the night ran smoothly and a lot of our guests complimented him. He made the night casual and light hearted. We were able to let him know what we wanted and was able to give us ideas for throughout the night. Made liaising with the different vendors simple and easy. Overall we recommend John to everyone who needed his services. 🙂
