Wedding Celebrant in East Sussex


My name is Jenny and I am your family and wedding celebrant in East Sussex.  I am originally from London but have settled in Brighton and Hove where I raised my family.  I started out as a professional actor and singer but when my gorgeous children came along I qualified as a drama teacher. For the last 20 years I have been teaching drama, and producing and directing musical theatre productions and plays, in schools and on the Brighton and Edinburgh fringe. I have also kept my hand in as a performer during this time and am part of a musical comedy troupe.

It was during lockdown that I decided to begin my third career! Like many of us, I began to evaluate what was important to me in life, which is family, friends and fun.  I realised that now was the time to escape the daily pressure of working in a school, albeit teaching a subject I love, and to embrace new opportunities.

Communication is at the centre of everything I do as a teacher and performer, and with writing coming naturally to me as well I wanted to be able to combine these skills to the benefit of others.

I was drawn to celebrancy because I love meeting new people and bringing my expertise to what is a truly wonderful and uplifting job.  I am a part of a large family and this is what drew me to becoming a family celebrant - what could be nicer than naming a child, or bringing two people together as they set out on their lifetime journey?

I am passionate about equality and inclusivity and I would love to be the person you choose to conduct your ceremony.  

What I can offer you?

I pride myself on creating meaningful ceremonies that are joyful and uplifting from start to finish. I have spent the last 30 years producing and performing in theatrical productions and I know how to put on a show! 

Did you know that if you choose me to be your celebrant, you can hold your dream ceremony in any location and at any time that suits you? 

I will take my time getting to know you, and will help to plan a bespoke ceremony so that it encompasses and represents your personalities, your ideas, beliefs and dreams.

Together we can make your ceremony completely unique, and one that everyone will remember! You will be amazed at the beautiful and creative rituals that we can plan so that your day is perfect in every way, whatever the type of ceremony.

My organisational skills are second to none and you will be in very safe hands.I am overflowing with ideas to make your day individual, original and perfect for you and would be honoured to be your celebrant.  I promise I will do everything I can to make the whole process stress free and fun,that will celebrate the unique elements of your relationship with warmth and humour.

Some participants in a ceremony can often be anxious when it is their turn to speak or read.  In fact nerves might even prevent someone you care for from reading a special verse or from making a speech.  I am also able  to offer coaching for your best man or anyone else who is nervous about speaking at your event in public.  My years of working as a director of plays, means that I can spend time with them making them feel comfortable, and giving them tips and ideas to help them build their confidence.  This coaching can be online or in person depending on location.

I can also offer suggestions for readings or poems and music if you wish, or it can be entirely your choice.  Every story is unique and therefore your celebration should be equally unique - and will be delivered with genuine warmth and joy.

Romantic & Meaningful Ceremonies.  Fun. Glamorous. Original.
