Thank you so, so, so much for being so lovely and making our ceremony so perfect! We can’t thank you enough. Lots of laughs along the way! Even an added year of planning (due to covid postponements). Thanks for all the love, Abby & Sam x

Quote from the JEP Wedding Supplement
“From the beginning, Florence had wanted us to write our own vows,” said Scott. “Initially, I wasn’t sure about the idea but it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made, because it made the ceremony much more personal. We wrote them privately and sent them to our celebrant, Julie Wildbore-Hands, so neither of us knew what the other one was going to say.”
“It was very special – and Julie was amazing both at helping us to prepare and for conducting the service in a way which was very relaxed and in keeping with the feel we wanted,” said Florence. “After the wedding, a lot of guests commented on how much they had enjoyed the ceremony.”

Huge Thank you Mr & Mrs Graeme & Barbara Le Sueur
Where do I begin?! We simply CANNOT thank you enough for carrying out our ceremony for us. It was beautiful, incredible, and perfect.
We loved every second of it. There was so much emotion and we really felt connected with you throughout. We are so grateful to have met you. You have been wonderful from when we first met.
Thank you so much for everything, we could not have wished for a more amazing ceremony.
Julie! Our favourite celebrant in the whole wide world! Bless you, you always have such kind and lovely words for us! Thank you! We’re so glad you enjoyed the day, you really did make it for us.
We first met Julie when she – working for Jersey Heritage at the time – showed us round Elizabeth Castle as a potential wedding venue. We were struck by her warmth and good humour, and couldn’t wait to work with her on planning the big day.
When we later learned that Julie had become a celebrant, we immediately knew who we wanted to conduct our marriage ceremony. Living in the UK and getting married in Jersey had its challenges when arranging suppliers but Julie always kept us well informed and reassured, recommended caterers and reception venues to look round and was so helpful whenever we needed her. She was just perfect on the day, the ideal mix of wonderfully sentimental, warm and very funny! We also asked Julie to help co-ordinate our reception and make everything run smoothly, which she did exceptionally well.
18 months on and we had our first child during a Covid lockdown and decided we would like to hold a Naming Day for her in Jersey once Covid allowed. We could only imagine one person to turn to, and we were so thrilled that Julie was available – as were both sets of grandparents who loved our wedding ceremony so were very pleased to learn we had asked Julie! We were particularly touched to learn that we would be her first ‘return customers’!
Julie did a fantastic job once again in the build-up – including a lot of virtual planning and help during the pandemic – and on the day itself, and we now genuinely couldn’t imagine holding a family occasion without her.
We would thoroughly recommend Julie to anyone! She is a pleasure to work with, and is one of the kindest, loveliest and most professional people we have ever met.
