 Hello, my name is Jill Southee. I love being a celebrant and appreciate you visiting my website. 

 I understand choosing a celebrant is a big decision so I hope by reading more about me and   browsing the services I provide, that you will consider me as your celebrant. 

 As a professionally trained, sincere and experienced celebrant, I craft and deliver your personal   story for any significant life event you wish to mark and/or celebrate, including but not limited to   the list of ceremonies outlined below. 

 Ceremonies can be a time for celebration however, they can also help heal in times of sadness         or loss. I am a celebrant who will create exactly the celebration you want. Your personal         experiences deserve a unique, memorable and heartfelt ceremony.

 PLEASE NOTE: I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
