Hi, I'm Janine

My approach to all my ceremonies (Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Baby Naming and Funerals) is that they are unique, personal, inclusive and heartfelt.

I love it when my couples and families say “It seemed we had known you for ages after our first meeting” and for them to go onto to say that this shines through beautifully during the ceremony as well – that to me means the world, and I know I have been the best Celebrant I can be.

I ensure that your ceremony is about your journey through life and is a true reflection of what your wishes are. I want your ceremony to be something that you will remember with heartfelt fondness for the rest of your days.

As a celebrant I know I have done my job well when I get feedback saying ” the ceremony itself was so positive, filled with love, laughter, humour and a few tears.” In my view, all of those ingredients create the perfect recipe for the perfect ceremony, with the added secret ingredients of you, and your partner, your families and friends.

Selecting the right words that draw your families and friends together so that all guests feel a part of the celebrations is my specialism. I love it when people say to me – “it was the most touching service/ceremony I have ever attended”.

I pride myself on my warmth and my ability to put everyone at their ease; which helps create the wonderful environment necessary for you and everyone else to enjoy your perfect ceremony.

What's my ceremony style?

Weddings – Whether you want your ceremony to be about Old Hollywood Glam, Vintage, Rustic, Retro, Modern, Themed or Traditional, I am here to help you design your bespoke and unique ceremony.

From Small and intimate weddings to Large (200+guest) – I love them all. It can be outside, inside, beside a waterfall, in a field, in a glamourous 5 Star Venue – it’s your choice and I am more than happy to be your celebrant.

The same goes for your Renewal of Vow Ceremony, or your Ceremony to welcome your new addition to the family – you decide where, and I help you with the perfect ceremony.

Funerals – Choosing an independent celebrant like myself means you will have a more personal individual life centred funeral that will be positive and uplifting, and will give you the opportunity to express how you feel, and will allow you to say a goodbye to your loved one in a way that you choose.

Each funeral ceremony that I conduct is individually written, and is full of the precious memories that truly reflect, and honour, the person who has died. The ceremony will be a dignified and a fitting tribute, focusing on their own journey of life that made them so special and unique.

I will visit you and your family and will spend as much time with you as you need discussing your wishes and thoughts about what to include in the ceremony. This may include music, poems, readings, hymns, and prayers. You may want family and close friends to participate, and this is often a wonderful way for you all to share fond memories, say your last goodbye, and to express any personal tributes.

In your wish to create a very special and unique ceremony for your loved, you may like to include something just a little different – for example, a balloon release, live music such as a Bagpiper, or a String Quartet, or even a full choir – the choice is yours.

Why choose Janine?

I think it’s best that the people I have worked with should tell you why to choose me:-

Doug and Kay said: Doug and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the fabulous service you prepared for us to celebrate our wedding. We knew we wanted a personal, fun, inclusive and heartfelt ceremony and that is exactly what you delivered. The first words to me from my dad when I arrived at the venue for the service were ‘Where did you find that lady she is wonderful!’ Following the service several of our friends stated they want you to perform their funerals … but not for 30/40 years! Your good humour and warmth put everyone at their ease and set the exact tone we wanted for our big day. Thank you again for everything you did for us and for making our day so special. With love and best wishes, Kay and Doug

Hannah and Robbie said: From the minute I met Janine I instantly knew she was perfect for us, her lovely, welcoming, happy, confident personality which shone through in minutes made feel so happy and so relaxed. Janine spent time talking us through it all giving us ideas, getting to know us, taking on the job above and beyond. She gave up her own time to message us with vow examples, readings for the ceremony, helping us involve my step children by having a sand ceremony, something I had never heard off before.We have been approached by so many of our guests to say how beautiful and perfect the ceremony was. Our step children loved the sand ceremony which was a visual way of showing our togetherness as a new family. I know my husband who was very emotional and nervous appreciated Janine’s calming conversation before I made my entrance.

I could easily go on with so many compliments on Janine and her outstanding business. We will love her for all she did and the beautiful memories she has given us forever on our big day, she will have a place in our hearts always xxxx

Hi Janine,Thank you so sooo much for everything. All of our guests were blown away by the ceremony and level of detail you included. None of them had seen a sand ceremony and they all loved it. It’s been a pleasure working with you in preparation for the big day and you made it extra special for us. Wishing you all the best for the future and of you ever need anything, please just let us know.Thanks,Ryan and Emma

Well i dont think my review is going to do janine justice myself and my family can not thank her enough for the service she gave for my mother from the very first meeting when janine came to the house to speak with us she made us feel so at ease and for something that we were all dreading we actually finished our first meeting with lovely memories janine listened to our stories took everything down and sent us copies of the service well in advance so we could ensure it was just right on the day of the funeral it felt like janine had known my mother for years the way she spoke and told our stories was beautiful and she was so supportive with myself as i wanted to speak she put me at ease and i knew she was right there if i struggled so many people have since come on to us to enquire about janine and her services what she did was absolutely perfect and we can never thank you enough for giving our mum the send off she desereved love and best wishes to you and thank you xx
