Hi, I'm Jacqueline

You’re engaged? Congratulations!

Let’s get planning because it’s never too early to begin thinking about your special day.

I’m an Independent Celebrant working in the South East of England and in France. I adore creating beautiful ceremonies for life’s special moments!

Whether you’re getting married, welcoming a new member of the family, marking a milestone anniversary, or celebrating a change of life, I’ll work with you to write and deliver a very personal ceremony that reflects your hopes, dreams and happiness. Working independently means we can organise your ceremony at a time and in a place that suits you. Woodland or barn wedding? No problem! Night-time and candle-lit? Absolutely! On the beach? Lets go! Just decide when and where and we’ll take it from there.

Living between England and France, I can also offer valuable insights and ideas to make your French wedding day truly wonderful. As a French speaker, I liaise with your event manager, chateau or venue to help smooth the process of organising your ceremony as you’d like it.

I am a member of the UK’s ‘Institute of Professional Celebrants’ and work to the highest industry standards with fully comprehensive insurance.

I am proud to be affiliated with ‘LGBTQ Quality Weddings’ and delight in seeing same-sex couples and blended families celebrate with love and pride.

The joy I see in the families I work with makes my job the best in the world!

What's my ceremony style?

Whether you’re planning a humanistic-style ceremony or one with some religious or spiritual content, I’ll work with you to create a ceremony that reflects your individual values and tastes. I adore incorporating romantic symbolism into the ceremonies I host and, with my Celtic background, can perform a beautiful Hand-fasting ceremony for you. (The traditional way to ‘tie the knot!’) I love getting to know the couples I work with and this personal engagement means we can have a lot of fun and laughter – both during the planning process and on your special day!

I’m also delighted to offer LGBTQ wedding, baby-naming and change-of-life ceremonies to honour and celebrate equality, diversity and inclusivity. Life is beautiful – let’s celebrate!

As an experienced Funeral Celebrant, I work with families and individuals during periods of great sadness. During this difficult time, people often struggle to find the words they need to honour and celebrate their loved-one’s life. I offer my services as a Professional Celebrant to help write and deliver a heart-felt, fitting eulogy and to deliver a ceremony that may be as solemn or as uplifting as you wish. I can suggest readings or poems that family members or friends might wish to read or I can deliver the words on their behalf. I liaise with Funeral Directors as to how the family would like the ceremony to run – at either the crematorium or graveside. As in life, all funerals are different and I strive to create deeply caring and unique farewells to allow families and friends to say their final goodbyes in a gentle and supported manner.

Wedding | 06/22/2019 | Château Saint Martory

We chose Jacqueline as our celebrant as from the very first introduction call she was very personable, built rapport quickly, and really listened to our requirements. She was also very approachable and accommodating to our needs as we got down to the details of the ceremony and gave great recommendations to help personalise that worked for us. On the day itself, she put our guests at ease, spoke eloquently & delivered an amazing ceremony. We could not have been happier and all our family and friends commented on how great she was as a celebrant. In fact, in our wedding video, people think we hired her as a professional narrator as her words and diction and tone were just so professional. Jacqueline, thank you for listening to our needs and delivering such a memorable ceremony for us, we cannot thank you enough. Andrea & Keith x
