Hi, I’m Jackie, a highly experienced (ex-Registrar), award-winning, qualified and insured Celebrant and I absolutely love celebrating love!
Based near York, I cover all God’s Own Country of Yorkshire and some neighbouring areas. I truly engage with you to design and write either a bespoke wedding, handfasting, blessing, elopement, commitment or vow renewal ceremony which is meaningful and deeply personal.
Describing myself as a dreamcatcher, I can help bring your ceremony vision to life. There are no rules on the ceremony content, so it truly reflects your personalities and values (for instance, I’m not a Humanist, so am comfortable with religious content it that’s important to you). Freed from the restrictions of using only licensed spaces, I can perform your celebration anywhere, indoors or outside, at any time of day, for any size of gathering.
Included in my fee is a dressed down walkthrough rehearsal at the venue, so when you walk down the aisle, forget ‘rabbit it in the headlights’ – think, ‘I’ve got this!’ Forget stern, stressed officiant – waiting for you will be the smiling, reassuring face of your known, trusted Celebrant, to melt away those nerves.
I’m fascinated by your story to your ‘I Do’ day, what makes you tick as a couple and your hopes for your onward journey together. We can ‘set the scene’ for your wedding or vow renewal by telling a little of your love story so far. This can include funny anecdotes, challenges overcome together, with giggles and happy tears before moving to the dignified and deeply personal exchange of rings and vows.
I have heaps of ideas for content to personalise your celebration, but am thrilled if you’re ‘hands-on’ in the writing of the script and bring your own ideas to the design process. We craft a ceremony that captures the essence of you as a couple, but most importantly, helps you yo find the perfect way to put your feelings into words as you make your promises to commit to do life together, side by side.
Traditional, contemporary, relaxed, formal, intimate, or quirky in style – anything goes! I’ll help you create a unique and authentic ceremony of your dreams.
