Are you hoping for a ceremony as individual as you are? Whether you are getting married, renewing your vows, or holding a naming ceremony, I can create the perfect, memorable ceremony for you and your loved ones, filled with love, joy and laughter…All You Need is Love to get things started!
“I had the pleasure of mentoring Jess through her weddings and namings course with the Academy of Modern Celebrancy. Jess is extremely passionate about her career as a Celebrant and proved to be diligent and creative throughout the whole process. She crafted scripts with much care, love and thought and brought them to life beautifully through her delivery of ceremonies. I have no doubt that if you choose Jess as your Celebrant she will be a huge asset to your very special day.”

What's my ceremony style?
I’m a relaxed and approachable celebrant who really likes to get to the bottom of what makes your story so special. I’m very inquisitive (otheriwse known as nosey!) so I’m great and getting all those little details that will make your ceremony truly memorable. If you want to ban the boredom of more traditional ceremonies, make them truly unique, but keep all those elements that are super-special, then I’m the celebrant for you.
I’m very family-orientated and I love including children and ‘furry kids’ into your special day. Most importantly of all, I will put you at ease and ensure that you have a fantastic day that you will remember forever.

Why choose Jess?
I have a great sense of humour and I think I make the process of creating your ceremony fun, which shines through on the day of your wedding, vow renewal, or naming day. I’m a great listener and I like to make couples feel comfortable and see me as a friend, so we can really get down all the little details that make your love story unique. If you have nerves on your big day I’m also great at calming those; with a hug, or a shot of tequila!
What do I offer?
My ideal couple would be fairly relaxed and really like the basic structure of a traditional ceremony, but perhaps want to add their own touches such as musical elements or a symbolic ritual to make it really stand out. They would be getting married somwhere rustic like a barn, outdoors, or possibly in a Tipi. I’m a big music fan, so a couple who love a bit of 90s indie or Fleetwood Mac would be perfect. I’m a huge dog lover, so a couple who wated to include their furry family member in their ceremony would be great! A couple with children would also be lovely. I got married when my son was 10 months old, so I know what it’s like trying to juggle babies at weddings. I think they would want a really chilled out vibe to their day.
I offer a completely personalised ceremony creation service. I’ll get to know you as a couple, really find out all of those little things that make your love so special, and deliver your ceremony on your wedding day just how you want it.
I’m here to hold your hand throughout the process of creating your ceremony and in the run up to your big day. You will recieve a final copy of your ceremony script prior to your wedding day and we can work together to make sure it is absolutely perfect for you.
Your wedding ceremony will unlike any you have experienced before.

A lovely, professional and genuine celebrant
We booked Jess for our wedding on Sunday 16th July 2023.
Jess came recommended to us by our venue which always provides a bit of assurance and on meeting Jess we could see why.
She was very warm and welcoming but had a calmness and professionalism about her which was comforting and felt like she’d have our day well in hand.
We exchanged details and a WhatsApp group was set up with communication when needed. It didn’t feel like a bombardment but an occasional check-in and ask for information when needed. We liked this style as it didn’t add to the pressure we already had in arranging a wedding.
Jess is very thorough in getting to know you as a person and as a couple. Aside from chats and check-ins, we were asked to complete a couples questionnaire which we could do separately or together. We chose separately as we thought it’d be interesting to offer our different perspectives on the relationship. Jess took all of that info and worked it into an amazing speech that really captured what our relationship is all about.
On the day itself, Jess arrived early and dressed really nice – taking our colours and theme into consideration. She said hello but then was quick off the mark to make sure everything was ready with the venues and staff supporting.
Jess’s professionalism and warmness shone though as she coordinated the start of the ceremony and spoke with confidence, humour and came across really genuine and human. This definitely helped with our own nerves on the day. She arranged a light hearted poem, reflected both of our questionnaires really well and touched on important points to both of us which we really appreciated.
We couldn’t recommend Jess enough as a celebrant. A lovely person and we feel lucky to have had her share in our special day.
All the best, Jess, and thank you.

An Exceptional Wedding Experience with Jess as our Celebrant
My wife and I recently had the absolute pleasure of having Jess as our Celebrant for our wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience she provided. From the very beginning, Jess went above and beyond to make our special day truly unforgettable.
From the moment we met Jess, her warm and genuine personality put us at ease. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and it was evident that she genuinely cared about making our ceremony as personalized and meaningful as possible. Her attention to detail was truly impressive, as she not only guided us through the logistics of the ceremony but also took the time to learn about our love story, incorporating unique and heart-warming anecdotes that resonated deeply with us and our guests.
Jess’s expertise shone through during the planning process, as she seamlessly assisted us with every aspect of the ceremony. Her input was invaluable when it came to crafting our vows. Jess provided insightful suggestions and thoughtful guidance, helping us to articulate our feelings in a way that was both authentic and touching.
Our guests are still talking about the wonderful stories she shared, and how those stories made our ceremony feel like a true reflection of who we are as a couple.
Beyond her exceptional professional skills, Jess is a pleasure to work with on a personal level. She was responsive, attentive, and flexible throughout the entire process. She took the time to address our concerns, answer our questions, and alleviate any worries we had, making the journey towards our wedding day enjoyable and stress-free.
If you’re looking for a celebrant who goes above and beyond to make your wedding day as magical as it can be, look no further than Jess! Her dedication, passion, and genuine love for her work is unparalleled. We are so grateful to have had Jess as a part of our special day, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to any couple seeking a truly unforgettable wedding ceremony.
Thank you, Jess, for making our wedding day a dream come true!
It may have poured with rain on our wedding day last week, but we were lucky enough to have Jess there with us as our Celebrant. I felt like I’d known her always. Jess couldn’t have been any more wonderful from start to finish. We knew she was the right Celebrant for us the moment we first spoke over zoom and from that moment on, Jess was in regular communication with us, checking if we needed help, giving us nudges when we needed them (planning a wedding with a toddler is HARD and I needed nudging 😄), making sure that she made our ceremony as personal and special as possible…she even spoke in Italian for my husbands family who were over from Napoli. I mean you seriously couldn’t ask for more. I’m quite sad now that’s it’s all over and we won’t have an official excuse to speak again, but I do hope we will check in now and then and I’m excited to see what lies ahead for Jess. I’d book her again a thousand times over in a heartbeat. No one could have done more and so beautifully for us.
