The most personal touch to a perfect day

Having Jess as our celebrant was the best decision we made. She was amazing from start to finish. The interview part was fantastic as we got to relive our story before the day. Jess is such a kind and lovely person and she makes you feel so comfortable with everything. Her speech was beyond perfect. She managed to get us and our vibe in every word. All of our guests came to us after saying what a fantastic job she did. It made our day so special and we can't thank her enough.

Exactly what we had hoped for!

We knew as soon as we spoke to Jess that we wanted her to be our celebrant. She was amazing throughout the process - from listening to exactly what we were looking for, putting together a script which captured us and our story really well to suggesting great ideas to get our guests involved in the ceremony and have some fun with us. The rehearsal the evening before helped to reassure us (and get the nervous giggles out of the way!) and the day itself was fabulous! Jess's warm, bubbly and engaging personality meant we had exactly the relaxed, happy and joyful vibe we were after! Thank you sooo much , Jess! x

Thank you Jess

Jess provided an amazing service, and the planning chats were incredibly useful (and helped us plan some things we hadn’t considered).
The cermony hit exactly the note we were hoping for, positive, personal and celebratory.
Thank you Jess!

Brilliant, professional, helpful

Jess was fantastic, she managed to put us at ease and created a ceremony that was perfect for us - with a lot of laughter as well as sincerity. She was utterly professional and organised, gave us ideas when we were stuck on decisions and helped us plan how to make it work in the space, despite the uncertainty of whether we would manage to do it outside/ inside and our indecision on format. It was such a pleasure to have her lead our day, and the vows that she helped us to craft will be treasured for a long time!

Thank you for a perfect ceremony!

What an amazing celebrant! From the first time we spoke to Jess we felt immediately at ease and so excited about planning our wedding ceremony. She understood exactly what we hoped for, and created a wonderful ceremony that felt true to us and full of joy. Jess is warm, friendly, and welcoming and also very organised, and the planning process was easy, unintimidating and a lot of fun! Jess had great ideas and put together a beautiful script that felt very genuine. The ceremony was the perfect start to a day of love and laughter, and our family and friends have told us that they felt it was a very happy, inclusive ceremony that they really enjoyed. We couldn’t have asked for more – thank you so much! X

Personal ceremony conducted perfectly

Jess has conducted two ceremonies for our family, our sons naming ceremony and then our wedding a few months later. Both events were filled with love and laughter thanks to her. She has such a personal touch which is completely evident in the ceremonies.

The whole process with Jess goes far beyond the usual, she really takes the time to get to know you both (+ our son in this case) so when it comes to the day everything is so relaxed and easy. It really feels like a friend marrying you and our guests felt this warmth too. If we're blessed with another child there's no one else we'd go to.

Wonderful celebrant

After months of searching for a celebrant, as soon as we spoke to Jess, we knew she was the right celebrant for us. She was incredibly friendly, warm and humorous and understood us immediately. We built a great rapport/friendship with Jess and are so happy she was part of our special day. She truly is a wonderful celebrant!

From the initial stages of planning our wedding she was always helpful and offered advice based on her experiences. Jess asked us both to complete a detailed questionnaire and followed this up with a call so that she could understand us and our story. Following this she created our amazing ceremony and captured our story beautifully. She was very patient with us and was happy to make any amendments we wanted.

On the day of the wedding Jess was supportive with instructing family and friends but most importantly was supportive with our emotions. During the ceremony she was eloquently, calm, humorous and professional. It was everything we wanted and more.

Thank you so much for helping make our day special and memorable.

Relaxed ceremony, full of love and emotion

We are so glad we chose to work with Jess to make our Humanist ceremony unique and special to us. Jess is easy to talk to and really understood us and our story. She did an amazing job on the day; the ceremony was relaxed, funny, emotional and captured us perfectly. Thank you, Jess, for making our day so memorable and full of love. We would recommend Jess to anyone wanting a personalised and relaxed ceremony.
