About Father Jerry Bellamy

Retired Catholic Priest/Non-Denom/Traditional and Same Sex weddings

I am a retired Catholic Priest on inactive status. I perform marriages as a Non- Denominational Minister. I have been performing weddings in San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterrey, and San Francisco since 1971. I perform weddings for couples of ALL religious backgrounds, and even for couples who want absolutely nothing religious in their ceremony. I have planned and performed thousands of weddings. In the planning time I have never presented Ceremonies A, B and C for the bride and groom to review, with them having to choose the ceremony that would do “the least damage to their relationship”. Rather, I plan each ceremony with the bride and groom so that the celebration is exactly what they want it to be. It usually takes only one, two hour planning session to accomplish this. The ceremony we plan may be very traditional or just the opposite. It is also a great joy for me to celebrate the ELOPEMENT. I speak SPANISH. I celebrate Quinceañeras and wedding anniversaries.  It is now a great honor of mine to be able to celebrate the same-sex ceremonies.  Remember, the only thing that makes somebody holy is determined by how loving they are.  Nothing else is as important.

Father Bellamy performed our beach wedding ceremony in July. His sense of humor and bilingual skills made our wedding ceremony truly unique and enjoyable. Our guests raved about the officiant and we were thoroughly relaxed knowing we were in good hands having Father Bellamy as the officiant.

Father Bellamy was the perfect choice for our ceremony. We are a Catholic and Protestant couple who come from extremely devout families and both of us also value our own individual religions greatly. After our initial conversation with Father Bellamy we were convinced he was THE ONE to officiate our ceremony. With his understanding of how important it was for us to have a religious ceremony that shared both catholic and protestant traditions he was able to plan a wonderful ceremony that focused on our commonalities, which turns we have a lot more in common than not :) After the ceremony we had family members from both sides express happiness, and surprise at the same time, that there were many religious elements. My 92 y/o Catholic grandmother came up to me and said her prayers had been answered and the groom's Protestant mother stated she was ecstatic that our marriage had received God's blessing.
Furthermore, he was amazing at easing everybody's nerves before the ceremony and gently took charge to make sure everything came out as planned- and it did! He also has a great sense of humor and it was a point of conversation during the reception. We highly recommend Father Bellamy

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.

Father Jerry has to be the most experienced, coolest officiant with the most positive attitude that a father could ever have, he is by far the best that I've worked with at any wedding ever! Can't go wrong with Father Jerry
