Hi, I'm Jane-Marie

During a 15 year career in the NHS as a speech and language therapist, I have had the privilege of supporting individuals and families as they have had to navigate some tough life decisions. I am a true empath and have a genuine and sincere interest in people and their stories. At the heart of all of life’s milestones is love. I am passionate about couples and families celebrating love in all its forms and to have choice about how to do this. I am curious and a great listener and will try my hardest to help to realise your hoped for celebration. I promise to bring enthusiasm and a “can do” attitude with a good sense of humour and imagination to create the perfect ceremony. My mantra being “one day, limitless possibilities” and always “spreading the joy”.

What's my ceremony style?

I am professional, relaxed and calm with a good sense of fun and a real desire to enable you to have your perfect ceremony. I will leave nothing to chance on the day, to ensure it flows smoothly and effortlessly so you can relax (as much as possible!) and trust that everything will be perfect. I am inclusive and welcoming, and engage everyone in the ceremony to make it a truly happy and relaxed atmosphere.

Why choose Jane-Marie?

Choosing a celebrant is a very personal thing. I am professional, calm, enthusiastic, fun and most of all curious to know about you, your love story and how I can help you have your perfect celebration. I love meeting and talking to people and exploring ways of creating a magical and unique ceremony that truly reflects you as an individual or couple. I am open-minded and have a positive attitude and always strive to deliver my absolute best.

What do I offer?

Weddings

My ideal couple are open and honest about the the type of ceremony they want. They may or may not have many ideas, but come to me with a sense of excitement and curiousity and want to work in partnership with me to create their perfect day. I love ceremonies which include family and friends and are relaxed and fun and I have no preference for location – Bluebell wood to luxurious manor house, both equally beautiful. I enjoy including a ritual, like ring-warming and watching as family and friends are immersed into the ceremony. It truly is a privilege to be a part of your special day and I want you to have so many cherished memories.

Renewal of Vows

The joy of a vow renewal is witnessing couples celebrating and honouring their years of commitment, happiness and love. It is romance overload. Some couples want to do this with family and friends and others prefer a more intimate celebration, perhaps just the two of them. Whichever way you decide, together we will create the perfect celebration of your love and life together. I will craft a beautiful ceremony with wedding vows/promises, perhaps your original ones or new ones, that will celebrate and renew your personal love story.

– Initial online consultation
– Meeting face to face to get to know one another and discuss your wishes and plans in detail
– Personal WhatsApp group
– Love story questionnaire

Why choose Jane-Marie for your renewal of vows?

I am a hopeless romantic and to me a vow renewal is the ultimate gesture of romance. What better way to show commitment and enduring love than to renew those wedding vows? I love to hear all about your original day and how to honour this in your renewal ceremony, whilst looking to the future.
A time to reminisce and reflect, to make new hopes and promises whilst acknowledging the past, the present and the future. A vow renewal is always a joyous and poignant ceremony.

Why choose Jane-Marie for your funeral?

I am a professional with a kind soul. I have spent many years in the NHS working alongside individuals and families at very difficult times in their lives. I am an empath trained in counselling, and a good listener who always wants to honour the wishes of the indivdual and family by delivering a beautifully scripted celebration of life. This happens when I talk and listen to families reminiscing about their loved one. I always deliver a ceremony respectfully, sincerely and with genuine warmth and often humour too.

The ceremony of our dreams

Wedding | 09/30/2022 | Bournemouth

Jane was a thoughtful and articulate celebrant who provided the best mix of eleganceand sophistication with charm and laughter, nothing was too much trouble – not even the dog bringing the ring cushion up the aisle – eventually !! The ceremony was remarked upon by all the guests for the personal touches and uniqueness. Thank you Jane, for giving us such wonderful memories and for being so supportive in the process of putting the ceremony together. I can thoroughly recommend Jane to any prospective couples fortunate to be taken on by her.
