Brenda and Anne have conducted hundreds of marriage and civil partnership ceremonies in Jersey since being authorised as Delegates of the Superintendent Registrar in 2012. Brenda and Anne can help you to design your individual ceremony and guide you through everything you need to do to comply with the requirements of the law and to make your wedding day the very happiest of occasions. We have the experience and the knowledge to help take the stress out of your wedding ceremony so that you can make the most of your big day. Working together offers a choice of either celebrant and the guarantee that whoever is chosen, you will have someone with the requisite skills, knowledge and experience for your marriage ceremony.
I am an experienced celebrant, having been sworn in initially in 2012, shortly after I retired. Since that time I have conducted numerous wedding ceremonies at a variety of different venues. Having the opportunity to be part of such a special occasion is a role that I love. Over the years I have received much positive feedback as well as thank you letters and cards from many of the couples whose wedding ceremonies I have conducted, some of which can be seen in my testimonials. Prior to retiring I was a Human Resources professional and worked for the States of Jersey for over twenty-five years, the last fifteen years of which were at a senior level. Before having my children I worked as a Social Worker for five years. My entire career has been people focussed and I feel that this background has given me the interpersonal, presentation and administrative skills that are necessary for the role of a celebrant. I want to work with couples to help them plan and deliver a special and memorable ceremony that is unique to them.
I trained as a teacher of English and Drama and taught in Jersey secondary schools for 26 years, specialising in teaching children with learning and behavioural difficulties, before becoming a senior manager in the Education Department. I am, therefore, a skilled public speaker with the ability and experience to plan, script and deliver a ceremony to suit individual needs. I have thoroughly enjoyed conducting hundreds of marriage and civil partnership ceremonies and feel that I have the experience to ensure that couples feel at ease and enjoy the most special day in their lives. Since becoming a celebrant in 2012 and having conducted many wedding ceremonies over the years I have received extremely positive feedback from couples and their guests. Please see testimonial page.
