Why choose Jacqueline for your wedding?

I love people and I love to ask lots of questions. I’m interested ( and definitely a little bit nosey!) in finding
out about the couple, where they met, what are their interests and most definitely how they have made decisions concerning the elements and special details for their dream wedding ceremony. I would love to be involved in the decision making with you.

Naming Ceremonies

Naming Ceremonies involve you making a commitment to your child. It involves your friends and family committing their support.
There are many ways in which a child can come into our lives.
A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to acknowledge your baby or older child joining your family.
A naming ceremony could be to celebrate an adoption or blending families together.
It’s a joyous occasion to share with the special people in your life.
As a Civil Celebrant I can ensure that your vision is brought to life.
The event can be held at any location and at the time of your choice.

My approach is very flexible.
I am excited to collaborate to develop your vision into a memorable and loving ceremony.
Whether it’s at a venue or outside in a special location such as the beach, a family garden or some woodlands.
It’s not traditional like a christening in a church but choosing a Celebrant reflects your non traditional approach.
I offer an initial discussion, follow up meetings to discuss and share ideas, the creation of your bespoke ceremony. On the day I will be with you every step of the way. I will lead the ceremony, incorporating the personal touches, the inclusion of your guide parents, guardians or god parents. The sharing of poems, music and symbolic gestures, I will celebrate alongside you.

I just want to say how very happy we all were with Jackie’s excellent service. She handled it as if Cathleen was her own family member. She was caring,thorough,very thoughtful, and sensitive to all the families feelings. She actually made me think this is how my Cathleen would have handled it, and that is really saying something. Thank you.

Mums Funeral

5 Stars

Funeral | 02/21/2024 | Kemnal Park Chislehurst

Jac was our celebrant for our dear Mums funeral, Jac is also my cousin. I would recommend Jac to anyone, she is the most caring, helpful, thoughtful person you could ever wish to meet. Every step of the way Jac was there for us, not because we’re cousins, but because that’s who Jac is. She is a people’s person, and is there to make sure your day goes as easy as it can. Her patience, kindness and thoughtfulness shone through. Jac works with you, she knows the importance of your day. Nothing is too much and she will be there for you whenever you need her . If you want someone who is there all the way for you and gives you her complete care and attention then I can highly recommend Jac. You will not be dissapointed .
