Celebrate With Jillian


Hi, I’m Jillian. An authentic, story-telling, plant hoarding celebrant who wants to jam as many heart burst into your ceremony as possible.

Hi there, my name is Jillian Nogueira and I am a civil marriage celebrant based in Brisbane, QLD.

I’m an authentic, glass half-full, optimistic, storytelling, plant hoarding, chatty, star gazing, deep conversation craving, hippy, comedienne, “too much” kinda gal who plans travel in my head constantly, who loves mix-tapes and wins every.single.costume party I’ve ever been invited to – it’s sort of my jam.

I’m always trying to learn how to sew, I love Greek mythology, I collect tattoos and I really want to be able to speak Portuguese (that’s where my dad’s family is from).

When you hire me to conduct your ceremony you’ll discover that I have a Canadian accent, because although I have lived in Australia for fourteen years, accents are for life.

I believe that apart from all the legal stuff I have to do, being a wedding celebrant is essentially being a storyteller and man, do I love telling stories. Stories have so much power. They delight, enchant, touch, and inspire and on your wedding day can cast a spell and weave some amazing magic that will not only warm your hearts but will set the tone for the day.

The story of your love is a gift, not only for you but for your family and friends too.

I really care about creating a moment that will last a lifetime.

A story of serendipity, and fate and of a love that stopped you in your tracks and made you think of forever.

Now that’s a story I can’t wait to tell.


  • In my spare time I love collecting... Books, craft supplies (would you believe I actually have a closet of fabric and can't really sew) and glass jars and bottles - for propagating plants.
  • What do you love most about what you do? Where do I start?!? I love that weddings are pure joy, I love the dressing up, I love all the gorgeous styling, I love magic venues, I love chatting to all your friends and families (I have a special place in my heart for your nan & pop) and I ESPECIALLY love watching two people I've become friends with stand in front of each other with glowing hearts and shining eyes. Basically, I love love.
