Why choose janet?

” In the end I love meeting people and hearing their individual stories. To be able to help organise and create something for the most special day in a life, is an honour and a privilege. I love the task of seamlessly weaving together all the elements to create something completely unique, and I love seeing faces that tell me I have succeeded in my job”

What do I offer?



I love creating a ceremony where others discover surprising facts about the couple, and there are little bits of magic either through a symbolic ritual or a special piece of music or reading. Everybody has a story that is theirs alone and a vision of how their day might be. It is quite simply my job to help you realise that.

My fees are all inclusive, so (within reason) wherever you are having your ceremony, I include travel. What you see is the price you pay for everything, even during these challenging times! Where possible, I go out of my way to visit the venue in advance. I like to be thoroughly prepared but with the flexibility to alter details should the need arise. I have a portfolio career that allows me to do that and I have even been known to change holiday plans to help couples!

Why choose janet for your wedding?

“So many of our guests commented on how nice it was to experience a ceremony that’s been personalised to the couple and they really enjoyed how Janet delivered it. We can’t thank Janet enough for her preparation and support in the lead up to the day. Janet was prompt to respond to our queries and any amends we wanted to make to the ceremony. We would definitely recommend Janet as a wedding celebrant.”

“We are so happy we chose to go down the celebrant route, it truly was very unique and much more personal for friends and family to be part of. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Janet for anyone looking to explore the how to make your occasion extra special, you won’t be disappointed if you do!”

Naming Ceremonies

I love a naming ceremony! Relaxed and touching they can also be quite emotional!
Consider a naming ceremony where you introduce ‘godparents’ and formalise the name you have given your child.
You might want to integrate two families together after a new relationship or you may wish to bring an adopted child into the family.
Choose your setting, organise a party, work with me on promises you wish to make and the future you hope to have for your child; how about some handpainting or some fun readings, and what about planting something which will also grow with love and nurturing?
The crack open your ideal celebration drink with friends and CELEBRATE

I charge one fee for a naming which is £225 and includes travel within a 20 mile radius, meetings, re-writes, brain storming and everything leading up to the day

Why choose janet for your naming ceremony?

My working life has been around young people all the time and I am constantly inspired by them. My own daughter is now an adult yet I know that if this had existed when she was a baby, I would have loved to personalise a ceremony for her. I now love doing this for others

Vows again

Renewal of Vows

Lasting love is incredibly special. A couple who have been through a lot of life together know that love changes, grows and deepens over the years. When you decide to renew your vows, you are making a declaration that you have learnt about deeper love. I will be honoured to be part of your journey.

A renewal ceremony with Janet Shell Ceremonies starts with a meeting either online or in person, after which I start to create your ceremony. At each stage of the process we communicate and chat about the development of the service until it is perfect for you. On the day I am there to guide you through and lead your ceremony, so all you have to do is turn up and enjoy it!

“Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful handfasting ceremony last night! As you could tell, I was completely in shock, even when it was over. P conducted a masterpiece with his secret planning and it was so appreciated. The ceremony itself, so very special and it was brilliant! I can see many more couples wanting this. Thank you.
