Jane Blackman Weddings
I encourage couples to take as much ownership of their ceremony as they wish. But I can guide and advise along the way - as much or as little as needed.
With years of ceremony experience - having created and officiated at hundreds of ceremonies (I also take funerals, naming ceremonies, vow renewals and memorials) - there aren't many ceremony types or situations that I haven't come across. Having said that, I am always open to brand new ideas!
Code of conduct . . .
I am trained and fully accredited by the organisation, Humanists UK (formerly The British Humanist Association) - having public liability and indemnity insurance - and belonging to a network of celebrants who adhere to a code of conduct with very high standards. In the extremely unlikely event that I am unable to take your ceremony on the day (this has never happened to me yet I must add!), having a network of colleagues to draw upon, means it would be very likely there would be someone else available, to stand in for me at short notice, should an emergency arise.
My fees are all-inclusive, with no hidden extras. The initial quote I provide is exactly what you will pay. I charge the same fee for all local West Sussex wedding ceremonies, but I regularly travel much further afield and my fee reflects the distance I am required to travel, the time involved and any expenses incurred (e.g. overnight accommodation).
Please get in touch if you'd like a no-obligation quote, providing me with the address and postcode of your chosen venue.
You don't need to book a licensed venue!
Your wedding ceremony can take place anywhere: in beautiful woodland, a private garden, on a beach, in a village hall, a tipi, hotel, barn, castle or a stately home - the decision is yours!
