Jan Grayson Celebrant
Jan was very happily married to John for 45 years and has 3 grown up children. It was when her 2 daughters became engaged within a year of one another, that Jan's interest in weddings and ceremonies took hold.
Both girls wanted their weddings in 2018 to be special, but very different from one another, as their chosen tastes in themes, music and venues reflected them and their partners as individuals.
It was while looking through the website of one of their preferred venues, that Jan came across the term 'Celebrant'. Investigating further, Jan, a former teacher, realised that she too had the personal qualities, capabilities and desire to follow this route into a new and interesting career, and so she signed up for the Civil Ceremonies Ltd Level 3 Diploma in Naming and Couples (RCF) qualification.
The intensive training has been invaluable, as well as enjoyable, due to the happy nature of the events, and attending weddings in her official capacity is one of the most satisfying jobs she has ever undertaken.
As well as planning to deliver her eldest daughter's ceremony in 2018 at Bassmead Manor Barns, she looks forward to creating bespoke ceremony packages for other couples and families to help them realise their own dream event.
"Jan performed a beautiful ceremony for us. It was very moving and personal. We couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate our love for one another"-Jemma
"Jan was amazing, such a beautiful and personal ceremony xx "- Kerry
"Great ceremony Jan at Bassmead Manor Farms, St Neots in April 2018. You managed to mastermind a great balance between the necessary formality required by law and the smiling, informal friendliness that made the whole ceremony relaxing for the bride and groom and highly enjoyable for all the families, friends and participants. Well done. Keep smiling." John C.
