Kehani and Matt married in Norah Head Lighthouse

Friday on a Spring day we were blown away with the hectic wind at Norah Head Lighthouse. Changed plans and Kehani & Matt became (apparently) the second couple to be allowed to marry inside the lighthouse! Congratulations, it was a blast …literally!

Shannon and Brett Married – Testimonial


Jo you are the most awesome. out there, super cool, kind hearted, funky, beautiful and caring, happy celebrant we have ever met. It was such a pleasure to have you not only as our Celebrant, but part of our special day. We both couldn’t be any happier with your services. Keep it up! :)” Mr and Mrs Gow


An intimate elopement.

Met a couple tonight & booked an intimate elopement. My favourite observation was the bride-to-be relaxing with her legs up on the groom's lap. They were comfy to be themselves with me.

Nice! ♥

Don’t be scared to give me a call to chat about eloping. I’m pretty laid back myself!


Vows Now is moving

We’ve had a great time marrying couples in our home, but the lawn doesn’t mow itself. The time has come for my husband and I to downsize our accommodation and move to a small apartment… with a dishwasher! Yay! Sadly this means no more weddings in my home on the waterfront.

Johanna will still be on the Central Coast and still available as Celebrant for short, legal, fuss-free weddings anywhere on the NSW Central Coast. The only difference is it will be at your place, not mine.

There are many beautiful Central Coast wedding locations that I can suggest if you still want a private, waterfront elopement.

If you’d like to Get Just Married® give Jo a call on 0429 2 ELOPE (0429 235673).



Elope-a-rama :: Valentine’s Day 2013

A Fuss-Free Wedding to Remember: Elope-a-rama
Valentines Day 2013

Many couples dream of having their Wedding on Valentine’s Day but, generally speaking, with normal wedding suppliers – that just means the price of everything skyrockets! But that’s not always the case.

Forget your run of the mill wedding that ends up costing you thousands; on Valentine’s Day 2013, Central Coast Marriage Celebrant Johanna Hayes and Photographer Andrew Hellmich are combining forces to hold Elope-a-rama, offering an all in one elopement and photography package to those lucky in love for just $995.

Whether you’re a bride (or groom) who wishes they could run away and elope somewhere quickly, easily and without a fuss or someone who wants to run for the hills the second they see the price lists for caterers or wedding venues – Elope-a-rama offers a wedding experience that you will want to run to – not away from. Forget the bells and whistles of a “regular” wedding and commit to your loved one on the most romantic day of the year!

The Elope-a-rama wedding deal will see you being legally married* in the historic Little White Chapel (in the grounds of Linton Gardens Reception and Function Centre, Somersby – Just 5 minutes from the Gosford exit on the F3 Freeway), with photos taken by one of the most awarded wedding and portrait photographers in the Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter Valley Regions. You will even be able to celebrate your marriage by popping open a bottle of bubbly and nibbling on delicious fruit skewers with your two guests (or more for an additional fee).

Johanna does everything she can to ensure that both the Bride and Groom have a very special day that they will remember for years to come. A recent couple married by Johanna, Chris and Rebekah said; “The service was performed professionally, but also with a lot of laughs. I will certainly recommend your services to any of our friends and family planning on having either a wedding like ours or just a small group. Again, thank you for a wonderful and unforgettable day”.

Most of all, Johanna knows that a wedding isn’t about all of the bells and whistles – it’s about committing yourself to the one you love and about your love for one another and they ensure that your day reflects that.  Elope-a-rama means that all the planning will be done for you – all you need to do is prepare the paperwork (before 13th January 2013) given to you by Johanna and turn up on the day – before you know it, you’ll be waving goodbye as husband and wife!
