Father Jerry Bellamy
On WeddingWire since 2010
Father Jerry Bellamy is a retired Catholic priest, in CA. He has been planning and performing weddings for over 50 years. Ordained after 12 years of seminary training, he spent 9 happy years in parishes. In 1981, he retired from full time ministry because he wanted to be married. He and his wife have two wonderful children. Both children are professionals in California. He is still a Priest but performs weddings as a non-denominational minister. Father Jerry specializes in both religious and non-religious ceremonies. He also speaks Spanish.
This is NOT his “side job”. This is what he does.
Father Jerry is bilingual and will work with you to plan and celebrate your wedding, in English or Spanish traditions. So many of his couples are not religious, as adults, but were as children. Many couples are agnostics, atheists or are just upset with the church of their parents. Father Jerry very often helps bridge the gap between what the couple wants and what their parents want. Father Jerry’s couples usually want to be married outside of traditional churches or temples or synagogues. He also celebrates weddings, side by side, with Rabbis, Imams, Ministers, and Elders of other religions. He will take the time to sit down with you to plan your ceremony. His approach is to help you find the ceremony that is hiding within your relationship. Your wedding could end up being rather traditional, or not very traditional at all. The average duration of a ceremony is about 28 minutes.
“What makes a person holy, is determined by how loving one is, not by how religious one might be. We celebrate how great or holy it is that you love each other. Dios es Amor.”

What a great company! We highly recommend!
It is very challenging for couples to not only choose the right person to marry them but also to find the right person! In this small pocket of California there are limited choices. I am so relieved when my clients mention Father Jerry because I know not only will they have a memorable and exquisitely penned ceremony but they will also go into their day organized, calm and excited. Father Jerry has many years of experience and knows how to set my clients' mind at ease. I highly recommend him for the job!
Father Jerry Bellamy will make your wedding ceremony relaxed, personal and beautiful. I love how he gets to know the couples so that the ceremony rings authentic to who the couple is. I always know my couples are in good hands when working with him.
