'I Do' Your Ceremony
I’m Jackie, a highly experienced (ex-Registrar) and insured Independent Celebrant, a member of the Institute of Professional Celebrants. I truly engage with couples to understand your vision for your perfect celebration and I design a bespoke ceremony written especially for you.
As I’m a Civil Celebrant (I’m not a Humanist) there are no restrictions on the content of the ceremony, which can include a handfasting or words of blessing if you wish, which I’ll perform anywhere (indoors or outside as I’m not restricted to licensed venues) at any time of day. I only take one booking a day, so I focus completely on you and there’s no clock watching or rushing your ceremony. An accomplished public speaker, I don’t need the inconvenience of a microphone and I’m equally comfortable with an intimate micro wedding through to a much larger gathering when it is safe to do so.
I’m fascinated by the journey of you as a couple to your ‘I Do’ day – and your hopes for many years beyond. I love to tell your unique love story; with funny anecdotes, challenges overcome together, giggles and happy tears amongst family and friends, before moving to the dignified and deeply personal exchange of rings and vows. I have many resources for content to personalise your celebration but am thrilled if you’re ‘hands-on’ in the writing of the script. Together we craft a ceremony that captures the essence of you as a couple, but most importantly finds the perfect words to express your feelings for each other as you make your promises. I include in my package a dressed down walkthrough rehearsal to plan the choreography of your ceremony, so you walk down the aisle calm and serene!
Traditional, contemporary, formal, relaxed, boho, festival or quirky in style – anything goes!
‘I Do’ Your Ceremony - your way!
"Jackie was AMAZING! Our wedding was so unique and personal and it’s all thanks to the beautiful work Jackie did. We were able to match our ceremony to our personalities and included anecdotes about us as a couple, it was romantic and funny at the same time which made it so much more meaningful!
Jackie learnt about us as a couple and we created a lovely friendship, it was such an intimate ceremony and everyone could feel the connection we all had. All our guests commented on how professional and lovely Jackie was and we couldn't be happier with our perfect wedding day!" – Hannah & Cam
