Every love story, life journey and family is unique. As a Celebrant, I’m here to create your dream ceremony, to capture the special moments in your life in a way that suits you and your style. The world is literally your oyster!

Whether it’s a Wedding Ceremony, Commitment Ceremony, Naming Ceremony or Renewal of Vows, I will help you cherish those special moments with a truly meaningful and significant ceremony – one that will be remembered for years to come.

I'm passionate about marriage equality and diversity and I respect all religion and beliefs.

Having worked with a variety of couples and clients from all walks of life, I am happy to sign a non disclosure agreement if requested.

A little about me…

I'm Gemma Jay and I’ve worked in the Wedding & Event Industry since 2009 both as a freelance planner and in hotels and venues across the North East and have been involved in hundreds of weddings over that time. I’m obsessed with all things wedding and love nothing more than personalising ceremonies to suit the couples individual style. Your Wedding Ceremony should tell your love story and represent you as a couple. With a Celebrant led ceremony you have the freedom to fully express yourselves and create your vision for your celebration. With a degree in Performing Arts, I also specialise in themed weddings and cosplay and am happy to discuss and explore this option with you.

As an independent celebrant working around the North East, I specialise in creating unique and memorable ceremonies for couples and families. I will work with you to create the perfect ceremony that reflects your life and love for each other. Religious, or not, same-sex, interfaith, quirky, spiritual, themed, outdoors, you choose. Together we will create a ceremony that is a unique reflection of who you are and provides you with a lifetime of magical memories.

Typically I work in Sunderland, Newcastle, Northumberland, Durham and Middlesborough. My set radius is 30 miles of Sunderland, however I will happily travel anywhere, at an additional 45p per mile. If you have met me at a venue outside of this radius, you will not be charged any additional milage.
