Hi, I'm Julian

I am a Sussex based Actor and member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I can offer the opportunity to create a personalised ceremony to mark any kind of special occasion, allowing a freedom to come together in a way that is you unique to you. For example, couples who do not wish to get married in a church can use a celebrant to lead a wedding ceremony for them in any location of their choosing, be it a farmer’s field, on a beach or in a wood. Although this does not replace the need for the marriage to be made legal, at a registry office for example, there are many different ways in which using a celebrant to lead the main service can provide couples with something that perfectly reflects their individual style and personality.

What's my ceremony style?

Would you like something extravagant and extrovert, bijou and intimate or just ever so slightly unconventional< As a proffesional actor I thoroughly enjoy using a creative approach to develop something truly memorable. Creating something that is uniquely about you means that I can incorporate any particular wishes, beliefs, off the wall ideas or very tradtional values into your ceremony. This is a wonderful way to ensure different cultures, backgrounds, or faiths can be suitably represented and celebrated.

From £450.

Funerals

There is no formal structure to a memorial service. As with a traditional funeral, people may participate in the memorial service in many ways, including delivering readings or prayers, singing songs, or playing musical instruments, or sharing a memory of the person who died. With the initial shock and despair of bereavement behind them, mourners are generally more able to contribute to, participate in – and even enjoy – the service. Recollections and speeches may be affectionate and amusing, and laughter is not considered inappropriate or embarrassing. The options for memorial service ideas are nearly limitless and it may seem daunting to plan one. Whether a “traditional” service, a “life celebration” party, or something in between, the abundance of choices and the lessening of a widely accepted standard can increase the pressure on the family to choose the right elements to include. Memorial services offer a way to honour the lives of our loved ones .

OUR WEDDING

Wedding | 09/07/2022 | MINLEY MANOR

Julian was the Celebrant for our wedding in July 2022, at Minley Manor. The whole process was a joy from start to finish. Julian was a superb sounding board and source of inspiration whilst designing our ceremony; responsive and organised in the days before the wedding; and performed the role of Celebrant superbly on the day!

Julian also went above and beyond – a good example being spending time giving tips to a friend who was nervous about her reading during the ceremony.

We would 100% recommend Julian – he was a brilliant and integral part of our special day!

Wedding | 05/07/2022 | Montague Farm

Julian delivered a warm heartfelt ceremony that he spent many hours personalising with us in the lead up to the wedding. On the day Julian was a reassuring presence and expertly navigated us through our vows. We can’t thank him enough!
