Jennifer Patrice – Wedding Celebrant
About Jennifer Patrice
Jennifer Patrice is a qualified and experienced Celebrant for weddings in the UK and for destination weddings. She is a Member of the Association of Independent Celebrants and an Associate Member of the National Association of Wedding Professionals. Before Jennie became a Celebrant she had two decades of experience working in the event industry. Utterly professional and with a warm and caring personality, Jennie will lead you through every stage of planning your ceremony, writing a bespoke script for you both, to reflect your personalities and your values, creating something really special for your guests to witness.
Do you need a Celebrant?
Having a Celebrant wedding allows you to have the wedding you want, with no restrictions. You can have the readings and vows that really mean something to you both. Your ceremony can be with or without religious content. Your wedding will not be governed by local authority rules, licences and fees. Most importantly you can get married wherever you choose, whether indoors, outdoors, on a beach, on a boat or even at home. For destination weddings, choosing a Celebrant led ceremony makes your time away so much more relaxing. It completely removes all the complex paperwork, residency restrictions and interviews involved in a locally registered wedding.
It is important to note that a Celebrant led ceremony is not legally binding as a marriage. You will need to complete the formalities with a Registrar for the marriage to be legal. This is usually done in your local Register Office in the weeks before, or after, your ceremony for a nominal fee. If you are worried about having two different anniversaries remember that the registration is just for the legal formalities, much in the way that your birth was not registered on the day you were born! Jennie is committed to ensuring that you have a ceremony that is meaningful to the both of you. Whether you are getting married, eloping, making a public declaration of love or renewing your vows. It will be your ceremony and truly special to you both.
