Hi, I'm Jill

Do you want a fairy tale wedding? a wedding on a beach? A wedding in dappled woodland? Do you want your ceremony at dusk or dawn? With me as your celebrant you can have your wedding where you want it and at a time you’d like it, with your choice of words. I’m sincere, friendly and have a sense of fun. Families I have worked with say I put them at their ease and am easy to work with.

I am passionate about Ceremony – I believe that ceremonies can be a time of celebration as well as a time for reflection.

Every ceremony that I conduct is as special and as unique as you are. I am a people person; I love hearing stories especially ones that mark life’s milestones. As your celebrant I will work with you to weave a beautiful ceremony to mark your “occasion”.

I “Create a ceremony that tells your story”.

I love conducting naming and family unity ceremonies, vow renewals and wedding ceremonies; I will work closely with you to ensure that your wishes are met and that you have the ceremony you desire. Your story can be represented by words and music as well as special vows written for the occasion – you may already know exactly what you would like – you may like advice and support. Throughout your journey your ceremony is bespoke, and I will support and guide you.

I enjoy working with families to write and to conduct a Ceremony for the Celebration of a life, it is a very special time. I will work closely with you and the Funeral Director of your choice to ensure that you and your loved one have the Ceremony you want. The ceremonies I weave are bespoke, enabling you to share happy times and memories that you treasure. Throughout the planning of your ceremony I will spend as much time with you as you need, either face to face or via telephone or email, until the ceremony is as you want it to be.

Nowadays we have many family combinations and possibilities, within the rich and culturally diverse society we live in. There are so many different occasions to celebrate from births and birthdays to Weddings and vow renewals, and Special Wedding anniversaries. My ceremonies are unique, exciting and uplifting! Together we can create your dream ceremony.

With me as your celebrant you will have all the time you need to create the ceremony that you want.

Renewal of Vows

My ideal couple are in love and want to remember and celebrate their commitment to each other.
My favourite ceremony types are Sand ceremonies, Rose ceremonies and Unity Candles and “passing the heartbeat” where families can celebrate together and make new promises that build on the ones they have already made.
I love having a mixture of generations involved in the ceremonies.
I also enjoy quiet ceremonies where only the couple and close family/ friends are present – perhaps on a beach or in a garden.

Often couples choose to renew their wedding vows as they have entered a new phase in their married lives and want to reaffirm their love for one another. Sometimes a milestone anniversary or a Special Birthday spurs on a couple’s desire to publicly commit to each other using new words to celebrate the commitment and love they have treasured together for years. You may have had the wedding you wanted when you were young, but have dreamed of doing it differently now… A renewal of vows ceremony provides this opportunity to have exactly what you want in the way you want it. It could be at the beginning of a family meal in the venue of your choice. It could be in your own home, or at a favourite go to location. Whatever the reason you may have to renew your vows, I will work with you to write a beautiful, and unique ceremony.

Jill and Ralph have been such a support throughout the planning of our ceremony, understanding that we have busy lives and taking the stress away. Jill wants to ensure everything is “spot on” for the day and takes everything into consideration. We had a lovely time Jill and so glad you were both part of this. XXX

Thank you, Jill for the caring and professional service you gave us during the the difficult time of my mother’s funeral. My wife and sisters and I found you made a difficult time more bearable, your insight and compassion made the choices we had to make more simple. Your delivery of the service was excellent. Once again thank you.
