Do we repeat our vows or promises after you?
You can do what comes easy - I encourage our couples to write their own vows or create vows which you can repeat after me... What is important, is we create a safe dreamy space at the top of your aisle so you feel happy, relaxed & confident! It works brilliantly setting the tone for THE most emotive wedding day!
I want our wedding ceremony to be about us, how do you do that?
Every ceremony is more than unique! No one in the world will have 'your wedding ceremony'! Trust in your love story and trust me to deliver it with the love, harmony, fun and sentiment it deserves... Top that with life promises, exchanging rings, besties saying you are the best, a symbolic gesture and a close of ceremony that is dreamy, flamboyant or as intimate as you like. You have a YOU wedding created only for YOU! x
Jo… all we can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for orchestrating the most beautiful, hilarious, emotional and special ceremony for our wedding in August 2022. Literally from the first phone call I had with you we knew that you were the perfect person to tell our story and you go above and beyond to make everything so perfect. You are quite literally a ray of sunshine, the warmest and most genuine person and it takes a special someone to listen to two people talk about each other and then take that information and create a beautiful love story but you do this effortlessly! You had us both laughing and crying along with all of our guests who have all commented on how beautiful our personalised ceremony was and that it was the most unique vows/promises they had ever witnessed! They were also raving about how bloomin’ lovely you were and it’s so true! We feel so so lucky to have found you and for you to have been such a huge part of our day! We will forever be grateful - love Tracey & David x
If you think about it, at every wedding there will be a lot of guests present who know either the bride or groom really well but have only met their other half a handful of times. Godparents, family friends, aunties, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. They see you as a couple briefly, if at all. At the end of our wedding ceremony, officiated by the amazing Jo, so many people came up to us and said, "I now feel like I know your story." Jo created a ceremony that told our story with sincerity, warmth, a few laughs and couple of wet eyes, so that every one of our guests knew why we were stood in front of them promising to be together forever. The ceremony was unique to us, and our guests loved it. The process is so easy going, too. You fill in a little questionnaire about 3 months before the wedding, Jo will ask a few questions and have a first draft of your ceremony ready when you meet about 8 weeks prior to your big day. We could've gone with draft one, to be honest, it was already that good. Hearing your ceremony read out to you is really exciting - but actually that's just the start. Jo will tweak things based on your reactions, ask you your thoughts and see if there's anything you'd like to add. If there is anything you want to add, all you need to do is tell her what it is and the tone you'd like, and she'll handle the rest. We ended up with so many brilliant ideas which made our ceremony so unique which came from that meeting. Jo came up with a beautiful tribute to honour the bride's father who we sadly lost a number of years ago. And she perfectly incorporated some lyrics from our exit song at the end of the ceremony. And aside from what Jo adds to your wedding day itself, which is more than enough to justify hiring her, she is also incredibly thoughtful and reassuring in the run up to the day. She checked in with us every few weeks to see how we were getting on, offered advice and guidance, answered any questions we had and was just generally really supportive of us. We would recommend Jo to anyone who is looking for a completely unique ceremony which is relaxed and engaging, and tells your story.
We weren't really sure about hiring a celebrant for our wedding but after working with Jo all our reservations were blown out of the water! Our ceremony was fun, full of laughter and tears (mainly from me), all of guests kept saying it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have attended. Jo was fantastic throughout, from our first phone call to the big day itself. If anyone is on the fence about hiring a celebrant, we can't recommend Jo enough you should definitely book her, she is amazing.
