I have been conducting handfastings for over 20 years; also baby-namings and funerals.
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.
“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
“Jackie did the best funeral ever for my mum, all my family loved it and said they’d had such a fun weekend of it. It was reverential, inclusive, beautiful, happy, sad, emotional, lovely and a fun è ral!” Nicky Scott, Devon
