Hi there -
I'm Jennifer (Jenny) Cram, experienced
humanist celebrant. Welcome to my world of love,
laughter and infinite possibilities.
If you're looking for a celebrant who
- is committed to you and to delivering a unique
ceremony that reflects your inclusive,
equality-focused, 21st century view of life
- kicks template ceremonies, tired old rituals,
boring lectures, and disrespect of any kind to the
- purpose writes every ceremony (no predictable
ceremonies created by Artificial Intelligence
or outsourcing here!)
- is committed to
Inclusion, and Equality
- is genuinely experienced (17 years as a
- respects your privacy
- is a great writer with a creative mind, and
- has a gentle sense of fun
and again clients tell me that I gave them the
confidence to have a truly inclusive ceremony that
reflects their values. and guests tell me that I
spread good energy among them.
I would love to marry you, name your babies,
celebrate your milestones! So let's talk about what I
do to make sure that when you say I Do, You Do
You (both of you!)
Jennifer conducted our
commitment ceremony and then 13 years later when
we got married we were certain Jennifer was the
perfect celebrant for us. She includes amazing,
meaningful parts in the ceremony and is so
thoughtful. She makes the whole process relaxing
and enjoyable and leaves you with
tears/goosebumps and amazing memories of your
My vibe is Sauce +
Substance + Solid How.
- Sauce as in a
little bit saucy, a little bit cheeky
- Substance as
in the real deal, through and through
- and Solid Know How
as in really know my stuff inside out - both the
legal requirements, and the ins and outs of what
makes a great ceremony.
All of which makes me wildly good
at getting you
married, and at surprising and
your nearest and dearest with
a one-of-a-kind ceremony that's way more fun than they
were expecting it to be, without needing to be the
centre of attention. Photographers love that!
What a wonderful experience we had with
Jenny - from the initial engagement, to the planning
process and the ceremony itself, she was absolutely
amazing. Jenny was so helpful in creating our
special day and she added wonderful, thoughtful and
personalised touches.- Suz & Matt
I make people laugh, and cry, in a good way! And I love
every minute of it. Whether your ceremony is going to be
the big bash or a teeny secret one, or something
in-between, there will be no open-mike-night shenanigans
and outdated sexist traditions will be firmly kicked to
the kerb. Inclusive, meaningful, and fun
ceremonies are my jam
Whether your bag is a romantic, fun,
different-in-a-good-way, or who-would-have-thought marriage ceremony
many guests, a quirky backyard registry style wedding
you married without a lot of fuss, a surprise wedding, a
secret elopement, or just a simple marriage
, Jennifer Cram (me) is your person. I
can't wait to get started on creating your totally
original, that-was-so-them,one-of-a-kind ceremony!
Not sure yet about which type of ceremony to choose?
That's not a problem. We'll explore the possibilities,
look at all the practicalities, and come up with a plan
that will be right for you.
do I do when you are ready to say I Do?
As your marriage celebrant I have two equally important
jobs, both of which i throw my heart and soul
The first is and to make sure that you are legally
married without a hitch or a hiccup, so that, on the
day, with beautifully crafted words [plus legal
paperwork!] we change your legal status to married, with
everything that means, legally and emotionally.
The second is to create and perform a loving and
uniquely personal wedding ceremony that is perfect for
From our very first contact, I will coach you through
what you have to do in order to be legally married,
and, at the same time, I'll be getting to know you and
discussing all the option for your ceremony.
I'll also be reminding your that, apart from what
the Marriage Act requires, there are no rules!

Because I start with what you want for every
ceremony, whatever we come up with will come to life
on the day, amazing and delighting your guests.
Head over to my Blog to explore
possibilities and wise advice.
Your marriage ceremony is super-important to me, and so
is making sure you start your married life joyfully and
confidently. With that aim I turn the "usual" way
ceremonies are developed on its head, starting by
getting to know you. Who you are, what makes you tick,
what dreams and ideas you have.
I'll give you my inspiring and informative booklets that
are a treasure trove of tradition-twisting, rule-bending
information, and all the freedom you need to have a
ceremony that is worthy of you. Actually, I'll be
assuring you that there are almost no rules.

DO YOUR THING
I will never get in the way of you being the stars of
your own ceremony. That's why you'll see me standing off
to one side for most of it, keeping the focus on you.
Never in your kiss photos. Never in the background of
your walking out photos. Never playing piggy in the
middle as you walk in and take your places up the front,
facing your guests.
When the big day rolls around, you can be confident that
your ceremony will have the right feel, the perfect
length, and everyone present feel welcome and valued.
Your ceremony will have my
fingerprint on it. That's why people hire me!
Unique though a fingerprint is, it is subtle.
What your guests will notice is that your ceremony is
interestingly, authentically, lovingly you!
is not about me. You are the stars. On the day I'm the
narrator, the voice-over, the prompt, the stage manager,
and a calm and confidence-building presence all rolled
into one. I'm there to direct their attention - to you.
" Good morning Jenny. Wow
what a day, we were so sorry that we didn’t get
chance to say goodbye or thank you. We absolutely
loved the ceremony it honestly was so much fun and
was light hearted and exactly how we wanted it to
be. You went above and beyond and really made it
personal and I LOVED the Hungarian twist and
scouse custom at the end that really did top it
for us. Everyone said through the night you were
fabulous and they enjoyed it so much. We
will honestly remember it and you for the rest of
our lives. Thank you again. Emma and

"... the ceremony
was the highlight of the day, you made our wedding
so special, you made us laugh and cry and have the
best time ... I have never actually been to a
ceremony that was so enjoyable that you almost
don't want it to end except for ours. Lots of love
