As a celebrant, Jackie Brown provides you with a vast selection of different vows, readings and poetry for you to choose from in order to make your ceremony your own personal inspiration.
Jackie is married to her zany and artistic husband; award winning photographer Steve Brown. They work both independently or together as a Photographer and Celebrant team for Bay of Plenty Weddings.
Jackie prefers to facilitate the wedding like an MC rather than a script writer. She won't always read word for word from her notes, unless the situation calls for it...like your vows, or a poem or a reading.
She believes that the ceremony transforms how we perceive life's most important times. The words and rituals chosen to celebrate a milestone reflect our personal beliefs and values. Her role as a wedding ceremony designer and writer is to help her clients create ceremonies that meet their needs at times of transition in their lives.
Jackie Brown is enthusiastic, easy to please, and a little bit funky...when you ask her to jump she asks, “How high!?”
She loves her music, dog, children, and especially her wonderful husband, Steve Brown. She has been fortunate enough to have moved from London to beautiful Tauranga, in the Bay of Plenty.
Jackie discovered a new pathway in her own life's journey and fell in love with the idea of becoming a celebrant. At weddings, she celebrates the stories of how couples met and fell in love. It is a deep privilege to share and help shape such an important celebration in life.
Jackie has a personality, she was born with it; her friends and family encourage it. She likes to smile, hanging out with people and making a difference in people’s lives.
