When Jane was young she wanted to be a radio announcer so studied after school and learnt how to speak confidently and fluently in public. From there she was offered a job as a nightclub DJ and found her niche, communicating and working with people. After a few years in the industry, Jane was offered a job with a mobile disco company as a DJ and running events and organising schedules for other DJs. It was there that Jane DJ'd her first wedding and fell in love with everything about weddings. She loved the importance of the occasion; the ability to help make everything run smoothly; the happiness of the couple and their important guests and the feeling afterwards that she really made a difference.
Around this time, one of the Reception Centres Jane DJ'd at offered her a position on staff, running functions, planning weddings and eventually managing the wedding reception centre. Jane utilised everything she learnt from this in her DJ business, eventually specialising in weddings as "The Wedding DJ" and was held in high regard in the DJ industry, as runner-up in the Victorian Bridal Industry Awards for Best DJ in Melbourne – voted for by her bridal couples. Jane had a reputation for professionalism, music and equipment knowledge and the ability to work very closely with all bridal couples to make sure their wedding day represented them to a tee – everything from classical weddings with string quartets and traditional choices to fun weddings with games!
Jane had a keen interest in photography and would carry a camera to all the weddings she DJ'd at, to add another aspect to her Wedding DJing. A couple attending one of the weddings Jane was DJing loved Jane's pictures so asked her to be their Wedding Photographer. Jane then upgraded her camera to a Digital SLR, studied photography, utilisingher new skills to photograph many weddings and assist other photographers in photographing weddings.
After DJing/MCing and helping to organise over 1,500 weddings, some of the Celebrants Jane worked with suggested that she should use her skills to become a Wedding Celebrant. Soon after, a couple who liked her personality and approach to weddings, asked Jane to be their Wedding Celebrant. Jane then put all her wedding knowledge into practice by studying to be a Wedding Celebrant.
Jane has now retired from all other aspects of the Wedding Industry and is concentrating on being the best Marriage Celebrant she can.
