Janine Meakin


As a Cairns marriage celebrant, and a supporter of marriage equality, I live and work in beautiful Far North Queensland (lucky me!). I offer you a huge range of choice in the content and performance of your ceremony, be it your dream wedding, a vow renewal after many years of happy marriage, or a naming ceremony. The vision I have for NQCelebrations is to fulfil and absolutely exceed all your expectations regarding the performance of your ceremony, and all our interactions leading up to it.

I've been thinking about my point of difference to other celebrants and why you should choose me, and I have realised that I am the point of difference. With me, what you see is what you get - and there are a lot of people who want a real, down to earth celebrant.  My focus will always be on you. I am someone who will listen, who will marry you exactly the way you want.  One of my recent wonderful brides referred to me as her "go to celebrant" - I can be that for you too, so give me a call.

I carry Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance through my membership of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants Inc, which remains current while I maintain membership

My values

The vision I have for NQcelebrations is to fulfil and absolutely exceed all your expectations regarding the performance of your ceremony, and I will work with you to the best of my ability to ensure this happens. You can rely on my integrity, honesty and a very genuine desire to "get it right" for you both.

Education & Accreditation

I am registered with the Attorney General's Department as a Marriage Celebrant. My training course was completed through Australian Celebrations Training, and I have subsequently also completed a funeral celebrant's course through them, and yearly Ongoing Professional Development courses. I am also a Justice of the Peace (Qual) in Queensland.

Janine was brilliant. Pete and I planned our wedding only a few months beforehand and we live in Adelaide. So what we thought might be difficult and complicated Janine made this anything but. Janine did everything for us explained everything clearly and guided us through it. We had absolutely no stress at all which was so good as it was just before Christmas and life was busy When we arrived in Cairns we met Janine for the first time and she just so lovely and calm and made us feel so relaxed. On the day of our wedding at beautiful Palm Cove we met Janine and her lovely family to be our witnesses and it just gave the ceremony a personal touch.. It was a wonderful day for us. So thanks you again Janine for making us feel special on our special day. regards Leonie and Peter
