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.

When my partner and I decided to move up our wedding last minute we found ourselves out of our depth and unsure if we would be able to secure someone to officiate with only a month notice (and with a December date!). Jayne responded to us quickly and instantly we were comfortable and knew that she was the perfect fit for us.Sent on 12/02/2017
Jayne was hands-on right away, helping us with planning not only the ceremony but also with ensuring we had a venue, photographer, music, and many things that had not occurred to us we would need! She checked in regularily to help us stay on task in our short time frame and had even arranged a back-up location for us in case of snow! Speaking to Jayne during this time felt like I was speaking with a long-lost aunt, instantly familiar and loving and a joy to work with.
On our wedding day Jayne was a solid rock in our haphazard last-minute wedding, helping direct our family and arrange chairs and ease our nerves. The ceremony itself was beautiful, Jayne's words and calm loving energy was lovely. We were also able to incorporate our traditional first nations ceremonial rituals into it which Jayne weaved in respectfully and wonderfully. Jayne was a joy to have and I feel safe to say our wedding would not have been half as smooth and beautiful without her input and participation.
Thank you Jayne, for everything you did for us.
Our Own Celebration's reply:It was a joy and most certainly my pleasure working with both of you. The love and happiness between you two was contagious. For me, the highlight was the First Nation’s ceremony, beautifully executed and lead by an elder in your family. It was an honour assisting her in the presentation. I wish you many blessings and as much happiness in your lives as I witnessed between you, on your Wedding day.
