Hello! I'm Jess, Civil Celebrant!

Civil Celebrant

Hello! I am Jess May

The Affirming Celebrant

Offering Ceremonies for couples who know what the DON'T want

working with Boho Brides since I trained in 2013

Independent & Experienced I specialise in Free-spirited, informal, joyous ceremonies. Clients always comment upon my how much they love my 'energy'. I would say that your ceremony with me will have vitality and personality.

I am often to be found outdoors in woodlands, fields, under tipis and canopies of trees, in backgardens and at weddings with a 'Festival Vibe'. I attract people who are 'spiritual but not religious', 'outdoorsy' creative types as well as those, attracted to Local wedding venues in Brighton

This year will see ceremonies involving memory candles, fields in Aberystwyth, alpacas, smoke flares, singing bowls, labyrinths, ethical butterfly releases, sage burning and lots of woodlands, pets and gorgeous people.

I am considered a Queer-Affirming Celebrant by many of this year's couples which is a great honour. I aim to be affirming to all. I often work with shy brides and people who are living with social anxiety. I also find that people book me when they are not really 'centre-stage' or 'limelight' people. They want light and fun but meaningful and not 'gimmicky' or silly.

Often my couples are quite understated and considerate people. They often tell me their main criteria is that their guests don't get bored!

This year there is even Pacobel's Canon played by a Steel Band in the middle of Wales! Those people are never going to be bored!

People find me from all over the county to celebrate with them and I feel such gratitude when I find my 'tribe'. I so hope you are one of them 

Can't wait to me you!
