We Love Jayne!
I don't have a single negative thing to say about our experience with Jayne. She was professional, informative, and incredibly personable. My husband and I got engaged AND planned a wedding in a month. Jayne was on board from the beginning and helped make the entire experience so special and smooth. We decided to write our own vows and Jayne provided us with some guidelines and tips which made writing our vows far less intimidating. My husband is from Wales, and due to COVID, his family and friends weren't able to make it. We did do a live stream for our ceremony, and Jayne did a fabulous job including all our virtual guests. Our ceremony was so beautiful and Jaynes personal touches really made it extra special. Thank you Jayne for being part of our day!!!Sent on 10/12/2020
Our Own Celebration's reply:Oh my. Thank you for your lovely words Emily. Your wedding was so beautiful in every way. Right from the gorgeous backyard setting, to your Stone Ceremony, your brother’s guitar playing and your Mom and sister’s flare for décor. The thought of Kyle’s Mom and Grandma not being able to attend your wedding tugged on the heart strings, so it was a pleasure to wave and say Hello over You Tube, Live Stream. Thank you for your careful Covid safety measures. I wish you both much happiness as you walk this journey together.

Jayne was the perfect person to marry us on our day. She really took the time and effort to get to know us on a personal level which made our ceremony feel very intimate, relaxed and personal. We are highly appreciative of her services and would definitely recommend her to others. Thank you Jayne! -Emilie&BradSent on 08/09/2020
Our Own Celebration's reply:I loved getting to know you both, and your families were so warm and welcoming. Your enthusiasm and excitement to get married, made my work so much easier. Your Whiskey Box ceremony was lovely, your family's farm was the perfect venue, and the sheer Joy of it all had me choking back tears. You are a match made in heaven and I wish you a rich and abundant life.

Sweet and caring
Jayne was the best officiant to have, she took the time to come to my location around my schedule. She asked questions and made the ceremony wonderful for non-religious people. She toldSent on 11/09/2018
Our love story with such fun and laughter but also took the time to do a rehearsal till she felt
We were ready. For anyone looking to have a ceremony that is completely different and unique that everyone can remember i would highly recommend her.
Our Own Celebration's reply:You are so right. Telling your Love Story was both fun and heartwarming, at the same time. The part I loved most was sharing the lessons you both have learned during your life’s journey. There was a message for all of us in those lessons. Then, of course, I had some fun writing the part about your proposal, from Plan A, through to Plan F. I wish you much happiness and many blessings in your journey as Husband and Wife.

Beautifully Tailored Ceremony
We found Jayne / Our Own Celebration online and were immediately drawn to her interesting ceremony ideas and positive energy that shone through in her writing.
We met with her on several occasions on the lead-up to the big day, exchanging stories and just getting to know each other so that she could tailor a ceremony that perfectly suited our relationship.
We spent several hours, chatting over the phone and met in person on two occasions- even prior to the rehearsal. And by the day of the wedding, we felt like we were being wedded by a friend we'd known for years.
She's polite, well-spoken, funny (with an infectious positive attitude) and very well organised; Taking many notes and never missing a detail.
Jayne put together a truly beautiful ceremony for my wife and I and was very accommodating to any unusual requests. She was also always willing to pick up the phone at times when we were stressed and needed some advice or just a calming presence.
We can't recommend Jayne enough.

Our Own Celebration's reply:James and Rheannon, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed working with you both over these past few months. Because we were able to spend extra time together, I really felt like I was "part" of your ceremony and guest list. Your wedding was beautiful right from the purple kilt theme to that stunning dress your wife wore. That’s what you get for being crazy in love. Thank you for inviting me to be part of your special day.

The Highlight of Our Day
Jayne was by far the highlight of our day. Neither my husband and I couldn’t have had the most beautiful ceremony without her. I’m glad we went with her as she was able to customize everything to us. I have had nothing but compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was.Sent on 19/08/2018
Thanks so much Jayne!
Our Own Celebration's reply:You and your husband were so easy to work with. You gave me the exact information I needed to help customize your ceremony from the Blessings to the colours for your Handfasting Rope. I thank you both so much for that. Everyone was full of love and excitement. It was such a pleasure to perform your ceremony. I hope you keep in touch.
