"Warm, genuine, energetic and funny!" Is how I was recently described. I am Jamie a Celebrant based in Norfolk but happy to travel! I specialise in un-wedding weddings and naming ceremonies.
What is an un-wedding? It is a wedding that cares more about you as a couple than outdated traditions.
If you sound like the clients I am currently working with- fun, down to earth, laid back, relaxed, open to ideas to make your ceremony POP!, creative, super loved up and chilled out then I would love to hear from you.
You might want some nods to tradition but with a cool modern twist, and you definitely want your ceremony to totally reflect who you are as an individual AND as a couple AND to be ooozing personality AND a little "OMG that was amazing, I want to do it all over again!" If this sounds like you then don't hesitate to drop me a line! I want to perform your ceremony!
I am currently writing ceremonies for couples having hand-fastings, a gin ceremony, garden weddings, a wedding by the sea with a private beach, film themed weddings, village hall weddings, weddings with children, weddings without, comic book vibes and more. Finding out exactly what you want your day to feel like is crucial to me so I spend lots of time with you, whether it be via text, WhatsApp, Instagram, facebook, email, phone calls and get togethers. Plus my bespoke quiz of course!
If you want someone who takes the time to really 'get you' and who can tease out all those special and unique nuances of your relationship then you have found me. Coming away from our meetings will leave you absolutely buzzing with excitement for your day, we have a lot of fun at these planning sessions! There are often laughs and sometimes even a tear or two of happiness! It sounds like a cliche but I am genuinely as excited as you are and I often find I am very quickly asked to recommend suppliers and used as a sounding board for other ideas for the day.
We will discuss exactly how you want your ceremony to feel in tone, length and style. You will feel reassured that your ceremony will be a perfect reflection of you, a balance of all the elements that are important and delivered by someone with the love and joy of a friend but the expertise of a professional.
When I am not meeting with couples or writing scripts I am found hanging out around campfires with my friends and family at our rambly house that has a garden full of cabins and a river at the bottom. My home is often full of people as we really love to entertain and literally drag bedding from attics to furnish cabins for late stayers. I love anything retro (80's music fan!) comedy gigs-love a bit of Stewart Lee! and planning walks along the Norfolk coast with my husband. I am a very happy, chilled out person as a result!
I love working with laid back couples and relaxed families! Couples who like to have fun with their guests and who are open to some creative ideas to really make their ceremony POP! (mid ceremony shot of tequila anyone?!) There are many different symbolic rituals that you could include, I like to dig deep and find or create ones that are an honest reflection of who you are. I love outdoor ceremonies with festival vibes, country gardens, family gardens and woodland glades. If there are children and pets involved then bring it on!
I love it when families tell me about who has pitched in and made what, which friend baked their cake, how they fell in love with their photographer and so on. So DIY do's are in! If your trying to be as sustainable as possible then you get my vote too! And finally teamwork! I love to make connections with the rest of your event team so that together our mini pop up community can ensure your day goes off without a hitch!
We can't speak highly enough of Jamie! At such short notice we had decided to renew our vows in all places at Fortnum & Masons ,in Londons Piccadilly . Having never used a celebrant before, we didn't really know where to start .However after stumbling upon the celebrant network we were recommended Jamie and it was the best thing that could of happened to us, because she could not have been more perfect for what we needed.
We had less than 2 days to prepare the ceremony and confirm everything. Jamie made the whole experience so easy. She's so kind , attentive and so enthusiastic that we knew we found the right person .Jamie stayed close to us every step of the way, the ceremony was well prepared and executed beautifully. It was almost like a second wedding day . When we found out , it was her first ceremony , we were blown away. Our day was perfect and that was in large part down to her. If we ever need a celebrant again Jamie would be our ONLY choice.
A beautiful event!

Jamie organised a truly meaningful and unique mother blessing for me, ahead of the birth of my daughter Oriana. I felt incredibly blessed and lucky to have experienced something so beautiful. I recommend the experience and Jamie as the perfect host and planner!
