Hi, I'm Jenny

I have a passion to tell people’s stories!
I help and enable individuals, couples and families to organise the ceremony they want for their life milestone, be it a Wedding celebration, Naming or Celebration of Life service.
I am great at putting together thoughts and ideas and organising engaging, emotive and deeply personal ceremonies, turning the dream into reality.
I’m easy to get on with, am an excellent listener and can deliver! Because I care, I listen intently to what my clients are saying and deliver what they want.
If I’m to be part of somebody’s special day and create a lifelong memory then it may be useful to know that I’ve helped over 30 families to achieve the ceremony they wanted in the knowledge that between us it couldn’t have gone any better 😊

What's my ceremony style?

I love to create deeply personal, unique and memorable ceremonies enhanced with symbolic acts and/or surprise elements involving guests that often get overlooked. I can’t think of anything better than working with families to create their dream event. I’ll happily entertain the idea of a themed wedding in an unusual location at an unearthly hour because your ceremony should be driven by your vision – Your day, your way, what could be better!

Discount for HM Forces, NHS and Social Care Workers, Skills Swap, Payment Plan

I offer a 10% discount for HM Forces, NHS and Social Care Workers …. always!
I am open to the idea of a Skills Swap, so if you’re a painter & decorator, plasterer, seamstress etc why not have a chat!
I am happy to arrange a payment plan as long as the full balance is paid up to six weeks before the ceremony.

Why choose Jenny?

Nobody lives just an ordinary life and the people, places and pursuits that make you unique are always worth celebrating!
I like to say I’m a verbal portrait artist, I paint a picture with words…. So if you want to shout I Love You from the rooftops, present your newest member of the family to the world, bid a fond and final farewell or simply say ‘I do’ then why not give me a call and together we can plan #lifeafterlockdown and a true celebration of life, love or longevity; I can’t wait to meet you!

What do I offer?

Weddings

From beaches to boho, barns to ballrooms you should be able to have the wedding day you want in the venue you want, sadly the reality is not that simple. Currently to be legally married you have to marry either in a church, registry office or by a registrar who attends a venue licenced for weddings and you’ll be constrained by the limitations on the wording of vows and the very regimented style of service.
Luckily there is help at hand!
Once you’ve got the simple legal service out of the way*
As a Wedding Celebrant I offer personalised ceremonies that tell your love story; include your individually written vows and symbolic acts i.e. handfasting, sand ceremony, lovelocks etc. to show the world your commitment to each other.
Your day, your way… what could be better!
*Mondays only (not bank holidays) at Essex Registry Office, Chelmsford cost £57.00

I offer my undivided attention to detail and open mind to anything you think will add value to your special day. I will be attentive and listen to your love story and hopes for the future and weave them into a beautiful ceremony, one that will be remembered. I will offer ideas where necessary and liaise with other key guests who are contributing to your service. I will seek out the venue’s liaison team to introduce myself and walk through the ceremony with them to ensure there are no surprises on the day except the ones we have planned!

Naming Ceremonies

Many congratulations, you have a new addition to your family! How hard was it to agree on a name? A huge amount of thought goes into choosing a name, researching its meaning, paying homage to family members and finally bestowing the name on your new bundle of joy. So why wouldn’t you want to celebrate with friends and family and welcome your little one into the world!

I help and enable individuals, couples and families to organise the ceremony they want for their life milestone – Naming, Welcoming or ‘Blended Family’ Commitment ceremonies.

Renewal of Vows

Having found the ‘one’ many years ago, are you very proud of reaching this special Wedding Anniversary – you should be, well done you!
Would you like to revisit that happy day when you both said ‘I do’? Then a Renewal of Vows ceremony would be a great opportunity for a family and friend’s get together.
You could write new vows to each other or simply reaffirm the vows you made on that momentous day when you pledged your love and commitment to each other.

Funerals

I conduct Celebration of Life services at both Weeley and Colchester Crematoriums. I also conduct services at alternative venues like the Willow Room at the Beth Chatto Gardens, which are wonderful and not constrained by time. Funeral services can be held anywhere (with the owners permission) even in your own home!

Some families have supported their loved ones wishes and had a ‘direct’ cremation, no attendees and held a Memorial, Thanksgiving or Celebration of Life service at a beautiful venue either the evening before or some time after.

I offer a free ‘Committal’* when I have conducted the ‘Celebration of Life’, Thanksgiving or Memorial service in a venue other than a crematorium *(not applicable if a ‘direct’ cremation – no attendance).

I am a great listener and am very good with words. I conduct extensive research to enhance your loved one’s story, painting a verbal portrait of their life, loves and legacy. I have helped over thirty families to create deep and meaningful ceremonies.
I am easy to get on with and can deliver beautiful scripts telling your loved ones story, recite specially chosen poetry and help families to say farewell as they see fit.
I offer a free ‘Scattering of Ashes’ service for anyone for whom I’ve conducted a ceremony.
I DO NOT charge for anyone under the age of eighteen.

Why choose Jenny for your funeral?

Working with ‘likeminded’ funeral directors I can enable families to undertake elements of both the care of their loved one and the funeral service itself. If you would like to be ‘involved’ in the end of life care of your loved one or just want to procure certain elements of a funeral and do the rest yourself then why not get in touch.
I can supply low carbon footprint, eco-friendly (flat-packed) coffins for decoration!
