Hi, I'm Jennifer
With over 20 years’ experience working on, and managing, events at a national institution, (attended by Royalty, high ranking politicians and A list stars) a passion for events – in particular weddings – I trained at Civil Ceremonies Ltd., gaining a nationally recognised qualification.
I’ve been featured in Forbes, Junebug Weddings, and Hitched to name a few; and recently named as the Celebrant that will deliver the wedding ceremony for NHS workers that won a competition in Hello Magazine – in collaboration with Bridelux – for a dream wedding. I’m listed as a recommended Celebrant at prestigious venues such as Blenheim Palace, Savoy Hotel, Bodleian Library and my service is unique and heartfelt.
I pride myself on the rapport I have with clients, holding your hand and supporting you through what can be a stressful time. As one bride noted “Jennifer Patrice is brilliant. She left a mark on our hearts”.
What's my ceremony style?
My style of ceremony is heartfelt, meaningful and memorable for you, your family and friends. Every ceremony is an important life moment and it is key to remember that throughout the planning.

Why choose Jennifer?
Congratulations, you must be so excited. Your special day should be how you’ve always dreamed it to be so, together, we can write a bespoke script – and design a unique ceremony – which reflects who you are at the beginning of the next chapter in your story. Get in touch for a free consultation, Jennie :-)
What do I offer?
My focus is to work with you to create a bespoke Wedding Celebration Ceremony (which follows the legal marriage or partnership formalities) about you, for you. Choosing a Celebrant led ceremony means that you can have any element included in your ceremony be it religious with a prayer or blessing, or symbolic ritual, such as sand pouring, ring warming or lighting a unity candle – with your parents or children joining in if you so wish. As any ceremony created by me is solely for, and unique, to you I build the ceremony after building a relationship with you first. Your event is a life changing moment and I strongly believe that the ceremony should reflect your wants and personalities and I pride myself in being able to make that happen, whilst still making the day (or in some cases days) enjoyable for everyone.
A Wedding Celebration Ceremony can have all the traditional elements such as a ‘bridal’ party, your father or mother walking you up the aisle, vows, music, ring exchange readings/poems, signing of a certificate, but most importantly, as well it’s your story, and woven into your script is your loved ones and a little bit of theatre with something like a sand pouring, a ring warming or a unity candle or, perhaps, you would like to mix a signature cocktail during the ceremony? Your options for a ceremony are endless and I can advise on all of this (and so much more) helping you to have the ceremony of your dreams. Remember this is your moment to share with the world your love for each other and I’ll help to do that in your way.
Why choose Jennifer for your wedding?
I will work with you to write, design and deliver the wedding ceremony that you have carried in your heart, and had in your mind, your vision will be brought to life. It is my aim to build a relationship, a rapport, with you and as we become friends, I’ll hold your hand and support you over that time to – inevitably – write the perfect bespoke script which when you, and your loved ones, hear it will instantly recognise your story. Jennifer ❣
Having a Naming Ceremony is a perfect way to welcome your child into your family and sharing your hopes and dreams for your child and their future. Formally announcing their name to your family and friends (and, if you want to tell the story, the reason behind your choice of name – are they named after grandparents or is it a unique name with a particular meaning?) in a ceremony that is designed how you want it, without any restrictions, in any location of your choice. You are also able to appoint supporting adults to help you on your parental journey, those that you know (if you need them to) will step in at a moment’s notice to offer support and guidance and will also baby sit when you fancy a night out.
I will work with you to create a lovely ceremony advising on content and format. Would you like readings (there are lots of them to choose from – perhaps you would like one dedicated to grandparents or one that reflects how you feel about being a parent), would you like music during the ceremony or perhaps you would like the supporting adults to light a unity candle? It’s a great opportunity to involve family and friends and with you I will write, design and deliver a ceremony that you, your family and friends will remember with great fondness. One that you will be able to tell your child about when they are older.
Why choose Jennifer for your naming ceremony?
For me ceremonies are all about creating lifelong, heartfelt, memories. Those that whenever you (your family and friends) think back on them, how ever many times that may be, you will always have a good story to tell, you will always remember something else that brings a smile to your face, a feeling of fun, joy and emotion. Jennifer ❣
Renewal of Vows
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony is a special ceremony in which you reaffirm your love for each other, remembering your journey as a married couple and, if you wish, exchanging the same vows you had at your wedding or you can write new ones to reflect your lives and the promises you wish to make to each other now. It may be that you have been married for a short while but all your family could not attend or you’ve been married for a long time, whichever it is it’s a great celebration of your years together for sharing with your family and friends, your loved ones. You can have all the elements of a wedding if that’s what you would like including an exchange of rings and signing of a certificate, in any location of your choice.
It’s my job to work with you to ensure that you have a ceremony that reflects your love now. Perhaps you had a small wedding before and would now like something grand, or you had a big wedding and would now like something smaller and intimate. Or you have reached a milestone anniversary 50, or 60, years and want to commemorate that with a ceremony. Whatever you have in mind I can advise on the format and content, such as vows, readings (poems or extracts from a favourite book that you have read together), music, religion or no religion, symbolic action such as a unity ritual like breaking of bread that your children/grandchildren have baked. Again the options are endless but together we can bring out all the beauty of your relationship and share it with your loved ones.
Why choose Jennifer for your renewal of vows?
You have a lifetime of memories, or are you having a wedding ‘do over’? A Renewal of Vows ceremony is just as important as the day you got married. It’s your story, your journey, your important moment; let’s work together to ensure it’s the day that makes you happy, a day that you can add to your history book. Jennifer ❣

Jennifer is one of the best
Having worked with Jennie professionally – I can vouch that she is an amazing person to have at any celebration. She is caring, loving with such a kind heart.I would definitely recommend her in my professional capacity as the ‘go-to’ celebrant for weddings, christenings, renewal of vows, baby showers, promises to each other, and any other celebrations which require a celebrant.
jennifer_patrice-celebrant is brilliant. She left a mark on our hearts.
