From KFC to Pyrotechnics: Creating Unforgettable Wedding Moments with Jeff Hindmarsh

Welcome to this episode of Season 3 of the Just as Planned TV and Podcast, where we bring you exciting and unconventional wedding experiences and some of the best expert insights around the world. I’m your host and professional wedding MC, Nathan Cassar, and this week get ready to turn up the volume on your wedding day because we have a true wedding rockstar joining the show – Jeff Hindmarsh, famously known as ‘Joined By Jeff.’

Jeff isn’t your average wedding professional. He’s not just a celebrant; he’s a celebrant, DJ, MC, pyrotechnics extraordinaire, photobooth provider, and even a saxophonist! Based in the picturesque Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Jeff has been part of over 3000 weddings throughout his career. That’s right, he’s seen more wedding cake than most of us have seen in a lifetime.

Jeff’s style is all about keeping it light and entertaining. He’s got a wicked sense of humor, a few quirks like hating coriander, and an epic wardrobe collection that can turn any wedding into a show-stopping event. He loves the beach and serenading guests with his saxophone, and if you want to get on his good side, just serve him some tacos or Dragonfruit.

In fact, Jeff’s love for weddings knows no bounds. He once married a couple inside a KFC, proving that love can blossom in the most unexpected places. And when it comes to your big day, he’s not just about ticking legal boxes; he’s here to celebrate how foolishly in love you are.

In today’s episode, Jeff is ready to dish out insights into crafting unforgettable wedding experiences. We’ll delve into some of the most memorable and unconventional weddings he’s been part of, including the fascinating story behind a wedding inside a KFC. Jeff will also unveil his crowd-warming techniques, sharing how to get everyone on their feet and in the party mood at your wedding. Beyond his unique combination of talents, Jeff will explore the broader topics that can help couples plan their dream weddings, from adding a touch of adventure and fun to staying organized and creating unforgettable moments.

So, if you’re ready to bring some excitement to your wedding and learn how to make it a day filled with fun and unforgettable moments, you’re in for a treat. Jeff, welcome to the show!
