Jane is fantastic!!

Jane made our wedding ceremony truly special and unique, it was the perfect start to our wedding day. Jane is a true professional, from the very start of our journey together she always replied quickly to any emails or queries- including whilst she was on holiday! She crafted the most beautiful ceremony for us and we had so many comments from our wedding guests that they had never seen a ceremony like it! We recently received our wedding video and it was amazing to be able to re-live our day again, especially the ceremony of which Jane was such an integral part. We can’t thank her enough!!

The Perfect Celebrant!

Jane was the perfect celebrant … friendly, fun, flexible, helpful, professional … not enough superlatives for such a lovely lady. She felt like a friend by the end of it all! A wonderful experience dealing with her. She made us feel like the only couple in the world. She was made for this ‘job’. I highly recommend Jane. A warm and kind human.

Best Celebrant ever!

We knew we had found the right Celebrant from the moment we met Jane. Her warmth and enthusiasm shone through and we immediately felt we were in safe hands. The whole process was seamless, as Jane guided us through, carefully listening to us and helping us with every detail. We had so many compliments about the ceremony on our Wedding day and we will be forever grateful to Jane for everything she did for us. Her enthusiasm and passion for her work is obvious for all to see and she made our day truly memorable.

Bury Manor Barn - May 2023

Jane did such an amazing job during our wedding ceremony! Having met her a few months before our big day, she very effectively captured our story and personalities with humour and emotion (working with us to create the script). She worked so hard in the lead-up, had plenty of excellent ideas for an interactive ceremony, expertly weaved in our readings and live music and really caught everyone’s attention, with many guests describing it as the best and most personable wedding ceremony that they had attended! Jane had our guests (and us) laughing, crying and cheering throughout. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone looking to for a personal and totally unique wedding! It was one of the best decisions we made. Thank you so much!

The Celebrant who listens!

Jane was recommended to us by a work colleague and she lived up to her great reputation. Jane really took the time to sit down with us and get to know us as individuals and a couple. She helped tailor our wedding ceremony so that it was a unique experience and one which set the tone for the rest of the day. We had many, many compliments on the service and the relaxed/informal nature of it.

Jane helped put us at ease, particularly my husband who was nervous of standing up in front of the group. Jane ensured that we had plenty of time to agree and tweak the wording she'd written (beautifully) so we knew we had the perfect ceremony. It's lovely to have a copy of all the wording presented to us, to keep and treasure too.

If you're looking for a humanist ceremony and someone to ensure it reflects you both, your family, friends and life together then Jane is the one to choose! We can't thank her enough.

Beautiful experience!

Me and my husband Jon knew we didn't want a 'normal' ceremony and wanted it to 1. feel more personal to us and 2. to have somebody who felt like a friend reading our ceremony and not just somebody reading off a generic script! This is when we found Jane!

We had such a lovely meeting with Jane and it instantly felt right the decision we had made! She was so warm and welcoming and understood exactly what we were after, but also gave us advise on things we hadn't thought about to make it even more special! ( and they did! )

We had such an amazing experience and still a few months after our wedding do I think about that moment! It was perfect and one of my favourite parts of our day! I love we have the script to look back on in years to come!

We built really strong relationships with a couple of our suppliers and Jane was certainly one of them! :)

Miss Katherine Pinnell

I really do not know where to begin in thanking Jane and describing our wedding ceremony. From the moment we met Jane in the months running up to our wedding day, we knew something magical was going to happen. Jane radiates kindness and warmth and listened to our story as if it were from a book. She found romance and charm in the small details and just got us instantly.

Jane was in regular contact before our day and put together the most beautiful ceremony. It was not until we stood before her on our wedding day that we realised just how personal, funny and wonderful her words were. Jane is someone you feel immediately comfortable around and knows how to work a crowd! The ceremony was by far the highlight of the wedding for us, people laughed cried and everything in between.

It has been almost a week since our day and we are still on a high and so grateful that we found Jane to make our day the most memorable ever. So many of our guests commented on how they were greeted by Jane, welcomed and how moving our ceremony was. Jane is one in a million and we are so privileged she married us.

Jane was absolutely superb. She took a part of the wedding we were thinking about glossing over and playing down and worked with us to make it the highlight of the day!

Super Jane

Jane was the perfect celebrant for us. With her holistic approach to our special day she embraced our wishes with open arms and did not push any agenda to host our ceremony. Jane was professional from start to finish. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful our ceremony was and how warm and supportive Jane came across. We were particularly grateful for Jane's professional and organised approach to keep us organised at a very busy time of our lives.
Thank you Jane, you helped to make our day perfect - we wouldn't hesitate to contact you in the future should we wish to hold another celebration in the future. S&J Leffler x

Made our wedding pure perfection

What can I say about Jane. There will never be enough words to thank you!

You made the most gorgeous, personal ceremony for us that we will never forget. It felt like being married by a close friend. We loved getting to know you during the wedding planning process. I couldn't have imagined doing it without you!

Everyone commented on how magical they found the experience, especially as so many were new to a humanist wedding ceremony - and everyone loved the hand fastening!

If you are wanting an intimate wedding celebration - look no further than Jane. She creates things of beauty.

Jane - you really are the best.

Mrs Gemma Breton

I knew I wanted a celebrant that would create a beautiful, personal and entertaining ceremony and Jane did that and more. From our very first communications, she made us feel relaxed and excited and guided us through the processes of planning our perfect ceremony. Meeting her in person and discussing our relationship was a really special and enjoyable part of the planning process. The day before and on the big day itself she was like having a wedding planner, again, guiding us and making our experience totally stress free. The ceremony was full of joy and laughter. Perfection. Thank you Jane!

The best celebrant ❤️

We are so glad we chose Jane to be our celebrant for our wedding in July. She created the most beautiful ceremony and made the whole process feel so special. Our guests and family all have commented on how personal, fun and relaxed it was which is exactly what we wanted. Would recommend Jane to anyone getting married in the area and wants to ensure their ceremony is special.

The Best of the Best

Jane was absolutely fantastic from the start. We spoke to a few celebrants before our call with Jane but just felt that "click" straight away. She's so down to earth and natural, she put us at ease immediately and it felt like talking to a friend.

The level of professionalism was unmatched throughout. The initial call, the welcome pack with ideas and examples she sent over straight away. The speed and depth of replies. It felt like we were her number 1 priority all the way through. And when we met up for a coffee and a cake the whole process of finding out about us and our story and shaping the plan was one of the best days in the build up.

She was a massive help on the day before, giving advice and helping us work through everything which helped calm the nerves on the day. She's also just an incredible public speaker. Our ceremony was outdoors, quite windy and no microphones, but all the guests commented on how clear everything was throughout the ceremony.

A formal printed copy of our entire ceremony with the relevant readings we selected and vows included was such a beautiful touch as well and something we'll treasure.

We could not recommend Jane highly enough.
