Full Description
First of all, congratulations on your engagement. With everybody having a view on how your day should be, what it should include and what you just "must have", it's easy to lose sight of what's important to you both. This is where my speciality comes in. Keeping the focus on you, your interests, tastes and the things you've said you wanted, I'll tailor your ceremony to make it a true expression of you both. Of your hopes, dreams, feelings and aspirations for your future lives together. Whether opting for something small and simple, lavish and large, elegant and sophisticated, unusual and quirky or a mixture, the choice is yours. Every individual ceremony is personal and unique to you as a couple, as it draws on the most important aspect to the day - you. As couples have said of me in the past, know you're in safe hands. With experience of registering and officiating marriages of various types and in different settings, from registry offices, to approved venues and places of worship, including celebrant and legal weddings for those in gender, sexuality and relationship diverse communities, I'm aware of the options and limits of each. And passing this on to you, through working together, you can feel rest assured that your ceremony choices will be the right ones for you. This is the beauty of celebrant wedding ceremonies. As they compliment the separate brief legal aspect of the marriage, it leaves you to have what you want, the way you want it, and where you want it. As I'm sure you've heard or will hear some people say, "It's your day". So whether doing this for the first time, or as a subsequent marriage, honour yourselves and the love you share, by doing it your way. Based in London and happy to work further afield, I hope to share in the joy of us working together, over time, to create something meaningful and perfect for you both. All the best for your wedding plans Jeannene

So lovely and enthusiastic
When we first approached Jeannene to be our celebrant, we really had zero clue what we were doing - we'd never done this thing before! Jeannene was so helpful and lovely, and her enthusiasm really made us feel excited for our ceremony. She is there every step of the way, and has a brilliant way of putting you at ease, even when you're totally awkward like we were. Her personality is so bright and sunny without being overwhelming, and she carried out ceremony perfectly. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

Jeannene turned it out
We looked at loads of celebrants for our wedding but nobody conveyed enthusiasm or reassurance like Jeannene did. Super organised and accommodating, Jeannene thought of every little detail to prepare us for our big day. Best of all, for the 'how we met' story that we wrote for her to read out for our ceremony, she killed it. All our guests loved her energy, articulation and delivery. She made our ceremony extra special. We're over the moon and heartily recommend Jeannene to any brides- and grooms-to-be.

Amazing wedding day
Jeannene is a wonderful celebrant that made our special day even more amazing. She is very professional, considerate and patient and helped us create the perfect ceremony for the day on such short notice. We couldn't have chosen a better celebrant for this so we highly recommend her! Thank you very much Jeannene!

Our Guests say “The Best”
Honestly, we can’t thank Jeannene enough. Our ceremony felt so special and everyone has said so too. Her care from the beginning of meeting with us, keeping us on top it all, right to the point of receiving her card has been so treasured. The way she brought our story to life and continued to take our guests on a journey, to enmeshing it with poetry and hand-fasting from our friends. It has clearly not only created lasting memories for us but for our guests too. Some have been messaging us to say it is the best ceremony they have ever witnessed because of how personal it was to us and how well it conveyed our love. They have commended Jeannene as our celebrant and it has given them new ideas as to how a wedding ceremony not held in a church can unfold with a celebrant. We still felt very much connected to God and her voice was heard by all, despite us being outdoors in nature....She may well be responsible for a few upcoming marriage proposals, an Uncle who declined the idea of marriage said he thinks he will propose to his partner of 20 years after seeing how she officiated our wedding! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

So Happy With Jeannene's Great Service
“Jeannene met with us in person a year before our date so we had a good chunk of time to prepare everything. She took us through it all calmly and clearly and every time we communicated with her it made us more excited. There was no stress involved, just excitement, as we felt in really safe hands. She was quick to respond to our messages and answered any questions we had leading up to the day. Jeannene went the extra mile in getting to know us, ensuring the ceremony included personal details and felt special and intimate. She was very open to our specific requests and made us feel that what we wanted was possible: she encouraged our individuality to shine, whilst making sure we fulfilled all the legal requirements. In the ceremony she was very supportive and kept us calm and present so we could fully enjoy the day. She was authentic and kind, with an authoritative air that made everything run smoothly with no glitches or confusion. We were so happy with the important part Jeannene played in our special day. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it and we received a lot of compliments on her behalf. Thank you so much again for all your hard work and warmth: we will remember it always.”

JEANNENE IS MAGICAL!
We are Americans who had our destination wedding in London. A million things could have gone wrong. We had 30 people to entertain for 5 days, so having a smooth wedding day was essential. From the moment Jeannene came on board, she was a calming presence. She just has so much positive energy. At our rehearsal, she prepared us for the unexpected. So-- on our wedding day, when our bluetooth speaker chimed in during the middle of our ceremony, we were nothing but laughs. Jeannene helped us keep perspective on what was most important: our love. She really made it a celebration and we're forever grateful to have had her as our celebrant. #bestchoice

What is your most memorable wedding?

For me, there's not just 1 most memorable wedding. What's most memorable are the spontaneous, unscripted things which happen. The glances between wedding partners, an un-intrusive guest interaction which adds humour, or my hug from the couple afterwards, which is full of joy and gratitude. Small, spontaneous things like this happen at all weddings and make each memorable in their own way.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional, Conscientious, Inclusive, Open-minded and Authentic.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After meeting face to face, if you decide I'm the right celebrant for you, we'll liaise over email, phone and video calling, deciding on and pulling together the finer contents of the ceremony. Close to the wedding date, you'll receive a draft copy of the written ceremony to approve. And closer still, we'll have a ceremony rehearsal. On the day, I arrive early to greet you ensuring you're fully prepared, and then guide you through the ceremony we've designed together.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Arriving early on the day and connecting with the other wedding suppliers, to ensure we're all up to date on what's happening when and any adjustments. This helps things flow smoothly, so that you, the couple, can just concentrate on doing what you're there for - marrying each other.

What do you love most about your job?

There is so much I love about what I do - Where to begin? I love the diversity of the couples I meet, and finding out more about them, what they love about each other and how they want to represent this on the day. I love hearing from some couples after the ceremony with pregnancy, house moving or other news, as to how their married life is developing. And I love the variety of the content couples choose, as no 2 ceremonies are the same.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

I have a couple of favourite moments. The first is when I greet the couple before the start of the ceremony to check how they are. This is such a delightfully emotional time, full of excitement and anticipation. The second is at the end of the ceremony when I pronounce the couple. This is wonderful, whether a celebrancy wedding or legal wedding, both the couple themselves and their guests are so happy, and it shows.
