After a lifetime career in education and training, Michael brings his people skills, organisational and management qualities to help people turn their intentions into wonderful occasions.

As a celebrant, speaker and Master of Ceremonies, Michael takes the pressure out of important events such as weddings, funerals, naming ceremonies and other important events.

Here's some recommendations:

Michael performed the celebrate duties at our wedding in April 2016. In the lead up to the big day despite we were overseas most of the time he made himself available to be in frequent contact to assist us work through all the paper work and helped us to customize the script several times until my wife and I were happy and ready to go.
Michael was all too happy to meet us the day prior for a final run through which helped to contribute towards the big day feeling like a dream come true.
Many thanks Michael!

Guests at the wedding thought Michael kept our ceromony not only personal but a little light hearted and professional at the same time
David and I highly recommend having Michael Janz officiate your wedding ceremony he really cares about making your special day
Very personal
