Dr Jeni Wilson (Dip T,B. Ed, Master of Ed, Phd)
Passionate and Professional
I love my role as a celebrant. I want to get to know you, to find out what you want and to exceed your expectations.
I believe every wedding should be unique just like you are. I am flexible, calm and attentive. No dress two days before the wedding? Can’t afford a photographer? No music on the day? Don’t know where to start? No problem, we can work it out.
I’d love to help you navigate your way through the decisions to create a personalised wedding ceremony and I won’t stop until you’re absolutely thrilled with it. There’s nothing like the excitement of seeing the wedding day come together, tears flowing and matched only by broad smiles and laughter.
If you’re looking for a more formal bio - I am an Associate of the Faculty of Education at the University of Melbourne. I have extensive experience as a private education consultant and is an experienced international speaker. I am the co-author of over 60 books and hundreds of articles published around the world. I am actively involved in community volunteer work. I have also been fostering for over thirty years. I have two biological children, am the permanent carer of two children and a respite foster carer.
I think all of my work and life experiences have put me in good stead to tackle the ‘wedding challenges’. Let the fun begin.
Easy going, laid back
Weddings should be fun and exciting and full of laughter… memorable for all the right reasons. It’s your day so you should have it any way you choose. Ritual, readings, short or long? Maybe start your own family tradition. Let’s plan your wedding together. The hardest part is picking up the phone.
I feel privileged to have had a broad range of work experiences such as customer service, landscaping, support worker and assistant grip on well known television shows. I am near completion of a Bachelor of the Arts (English major) at La Trobe University and making slow progress on writing my first book.
I am currently enjoying the roles as disability support worker with children and adults and foster caring.
I have an extensive volunteer profile including kitchen hand at a soup kitchen, food drops and Salvation Army collections. I speak regularly to varied audiences in Australia and abroad and has travelled extensively around the world.
