marriage celebrant Perth
wedding DJ Perth
Think back to the most unique and unforgettable weddings you’ve been to. The sounds, the smiles and the buzz in the air, from the joy and tears of the ceremony through to the hugs goodbye after hours on the dancefloor. If you've been to a few great weddings, you've noticed they don’t happen by accident.
My name's James, I'm a celebrant and DJ based out of Perth, Western Australia. At The Wedding Host, I'm bringing together 20 years behind the decks and 10 years working in the events industry with 3 years' experience of helping couples get hitched.
The ideal wedding day starts with a written from scratch ceremony and ends with the perfect soundtrack to the soiree of a lifetime. Finding the right person to marry is the hard part, the easy part is turning a good wedding into a great party.
James was both the celebrant and DJ at our wedding in August '21 and he was fantastic. When we met with him, he was very chill and very knowledgeable, and assured us he could write an amazing ceremony. Although we didn't doubt him, we wondered just how good could a ceremony get? On the day, my husband and I, as well as our guests, had to pick our jaws off the floor. He told our story in a way we didn't think possible. It was funny, endearing and very personal. Skip to the reception, and he kept us on schedule, played amazing music and the feedback from guests has been positive. I would 100% recommend him.

The BEST decision you could possibly make for your wedding is booking James! James was by far one of the easiest vendors we had for our wedding day, he was flexible, reliable, entertaining and did everything we asked for while providing some great recommendations and advice along the way and helped make the day perfect. Would 100% recommend James to anybody organising a wedding!

James was fantastic as our celebrant, mc & DJ. We could not have asked for a more personable, fun and easy going guy to run the night. He was so easy to work with from the get go and made the processes as stress free as possible. James we can not thank you enough. Our ceremony was short, sweet and hilarious which is exactly what we wanted and the music was on fire. People were up and dancing before dinner had even started. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and music. It really made for a great night. I would recommend James a thousand times over for anyone getting married.

James is AWESOME! The ceremony was so funny nothing like we had seen before, he made us feel relaxed and the ceremony was so personal to us as a couple people asked if we knew him before the wedding. We also hired James as our DJ and MC he did great the music was so good literally everyone was on the D floor!!! We streamed the ceremony for family over seas and they had nothing but good things to say picture was perfect and sound was great no lag at all. Would highly recommend James to anyone who wants a more relaxing, modern, personal to you and funny vibe day. Thank you James you definitely made it a ceremony no one will forget!

James was our celebrant and DJ at our wedding. The script for our ceremony captured us as a couple wonderfully. He made the ceremony intimate and reflective of us. As a DJ, James took requests and kept the dance floor packed. Thanks James!

Thanks James for all of your help as our celebrant AND DJ for our SUPRISE wedding. You had to deal with us over email the whole time and were prompt and efficient each time. Was an amazing night to remember.

James was our celebrant and DJ and made our day the absolute best!! The ceremony was so personal and fun - we had heaps of compliments on how great it was. James took all of our very specific music requests into account and gave us an amazing party as well. Can't recommend him enough!

James was our Celebrant and DJ for our wedding on Friday 8/1/2021. In 40° heat he was an absolute champion for the ceremony and pulled it off. My husband and I clicked with James from our first meeting with him, and was willing to answer any and all questions that I had. Would recommend James 100%. Was a really good DJ, and my step brother seemed to get along well with him.
James was brilliant! Thank you for being part of our special day. Your ceremony captured us as a couple wonderfully. Lots of love and laughter! We loved your creative writing of our love story and it was well delivered by our guests - many of our friends and family said it was really great. We can't wait to watch it all back when the video comes. Thanks again James - you come highly recommended by The Hubbards 😉

Could not have chosen a better celebrant for our special day. James made us feel incredibly relaxed and at ease in the lead up to the wedding and his way of bringing our love to life was simply perfect. Just the right amount of humour, love and professionalism. Would highly recommend!

James is a fantastic wedding celebrant. He provided an amazing and personal ceremony for us and helped make the day as stress free as possible. Highly recommend!

James went above and beyond our music brief for our marriage celebration - absolutely nailed Afrobeats with very little guidance! We had a fantastic time, as did all of our guests, with the dance floor being the place to be. Rachael & Ranganai

I judge our dance floor by the injuries - one busted knee and multiple pairs of sore feet! It went off and was one of the highlights of our wedding. You can trust James to gauge the audience and select the right music for you!

As far as Wedding DJs go, I cannot recommend him enough! He knows how to read the crowd and the dance floor was full all night. Even years later, one of the top things people remember about our wedding was the music and how much fun they had dancing.
Donna & Aaron Bathols
Great music selection. Everyone really enjoyed the variety, and the sharp dressed man.
Evan & Soraya Morton
Awesome selection of music and everyone was dancing all night! We received so much great feedback from our guests about the music on the night. Thank you!!
