Wedding & Funeral Celebrant in Somerset
A little bit about me.
My name is Jen Whitworth, a family and funeral celebrant based in Somerset, in the South West of England. I also conduct commitment, renewal and naming ceremonies all personal and unique to you.
My home is full of laughter, happiness and noise with my three children, husband and a crazy cat that likes to sleep in unusual locations! Friends are important to me and hosting dinner parties is the perfect way for us to catch up together, trying out recipes and enjoying a glass or two as we share news and stories.
My friends describe me as good fun, bubbly and compassionate, with a caring personality. They would also say I have a loud laugh and have a love of bright colours and all things sparkly or bubbly!
Having worked in an award-winning bridal boutique over the last five years I have experienced the joys and excitement when I have helped a bride find “the dress!” My attention to detail and listening to the bride’s requirements is paramount and what I do best. Keeping up with the latest wedding trends gives me a valuable insight into what is current and an excuse to attend local wedding fairs, as well as looking at the amazing photos in the bridal magazines and on social media.
Being a keen amateur dramatics fan, I have both acted and directed shows for my local theatre group and enjoy engaging with the audience. As the president of my very popular local Women’s Institute, this has given me a wide range of rewarding opportunities that enhances my ability to perform as your Celebrant. These include frequent public speaking to large audiences, radio interviews with BBC Somerset and other local radio stations, planning and hosting charity fundraising events, interviewing authors and other celebrities, even appearing in the Mail on Sunday with a flowerpot bra!
What can I do for you?
I love to hear about people’s lives and stories, working with families and couples to create a bespoke heartfelt ceremony is something very special indeed. I am especially skilled in teasing out the important details of lives and relationships to create a truly tailored, personal and uplifting ceremony, whilst respecting the feelings and beliefs of you and your family.
The joy in knowing that I am creating memories, helping celebrate the lives of loved ones is extremely precious and an honour to have. Because everyone is unique, we will meet and discuss your requirements. So that together, we build a ceremony that reflects your wishes, style and requirements.
I am innovative and imaginative, and welcome your ideas no matter how big or small, or how out of the ordinary they may be! Your ceremony must be as individual as you are.
For any celebration, I help you and your family find the right music, reading, poetry or prayer needed to express the moment. I am also very happy to dress according to your theme, whether that be formal, colourful or even in fancy dress!
My role is to create a stress-free experience and provide you with a ceremony that creates a meaningful and memorable occasion.
It would be a tremendous privilege to share your special milestones and be part of the journey with you. I am professional, compassionate and will support you every step of the way. It would be a pleasure to be your celebrant. On the day, I will be there to make sure that everything happens as planned, seamlessly.
