I have been conducting handfastings for over 20 years; also baby-namings and funerals.
I also conduct one-off ceremonies such as Initiation Ceremonies, Land Blessings, etc.
I work closely with you to create the exact ceremony to suit your desires, beliefs and personalities.
Our first meeting will establish exactly how much input you require of me; ie if you would like me to write the ceremony and provide all necessary materials; or perhaps you have written the ceremony yourselves, and just want me to turn up and conduct the ceremony! We decide how many meetings we will need, including visiting the venue, dress rehearsal, etc. if desired. The price is then fixed accordingly. This can start at £100 and may go up to £500 depending on my input, the traveling involved, materials needed, etc.
The most important thing is that we create the perfect ceremony for you, which will provide memories for a lifetime.
“Wow, we are both still floating on air after that amazing weekend! We couldn’t have hoped for anything better, it was just perfect in every way! Over use of explanation marks necessary in this case!!!! 😀
The orchard looked so nice with the bunting and the flowers around the tree. It was so overwhelming!
Everyone loved the ceremony so much. It was just such a complete love fest! I think we may have converted a few people to the idea of a handfasting. And oh my god, the weather, the view, everything was perfect… especially our wonderful celebrant!”

“Jackie has been an amazing gift to us before, during & since our handfasting & Poppy’s baby blessing.
We did not have your ‘typical’ handfasting audience and Jackie tailored it to us so perfectly. Nothing was a hassle- we really feel like she went above & beyond at all stages of the journey. We cannot articulate just how very magic ours & Poppy’s day was & how blessed we feel. she is such a beautiful soul that completely enchanted us & all our guests and made the day so very special.
The most wonderful human- we love Jackie! ” Andy & Natalie, Hereford
“In 2009 we decided to get married, and decided to have an alternative ceremony. Jackie helped us create the ceremony that we felt best reflected us & our commitment to one another. We had a magical day & the ceremony was perfect, sincere, heartfelt & humorous! Jackie has the unique ability to carry out a deeply spiritual ritual, hold a space sacred and keep you smiling throughout. We would highly recommend her to anyone.” Ceri & Nick Baker, Devon
“Jackie did the best funeral ever for my mum, all my family loved it. It was reverential, inclusive, beautiful, happy, sad, emotional and lovely!” Nicky Scott, Devon
