Why JCL Celebrant:

Each speech I write starts with a blank page, and because I am fully independent as a celebrant, I can incorporate whatever you want into your service, focused on your values and what is important to you. For a funeral, I will take time to speak with yourself about the person, their life and their interests, and then I will compose a ceremony based on that.

For marriages, I take a similar approach: finding out about your values and how you want them reflected on the day. If you are looking for an independent celebrant in Hackney, I am here to help with all your speech writing needs.
