Bespoke Ceremonies by Jules Goodger

It all started when…

I was at a wedding in Spain and watching the celebrant at the ceremony. I decided that was a career for me.  

Every milestone in life deserves a celebration and whether it's a wedding, a funeral or a naming ceremony, I work together with my clients to create the perfect celebration - even weddings for our four legged friends!

My aim is to make every celebration memorable so that it is remembered with love and smiles.

I also offer a script writing service for funerals and weddings.

I am based in Greater London and also work in Essex and in Spain.

Jules was the celebrant at our wedding.  There were plenty of phone calls and emails backwards and forwards to get the details right.  She even wrote our vows as we really didn’t know where to start!

Jules took care of every detail and made us both at ease on the day.

Everyone at the wedding remarked on how beautiful and fun the ceremony was.  It certainly was a day to remember!  She suggested a Rose Ceremony for us as part of our wedding involving our parents too - it was so lovely, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

We are now expecting our first baby and Jules will be naming him/her.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Jules for any ceremony.

Maria & Daniel - January 2018


Jules was our Wedding Celebrant in Spain  From the outset Jules's calm and pleasant approach was greatly received and appreciated by my husband and myself.   We exchanged emails and had a few telephone calls leading up to the wedding and Jules was thorough and professional throughout.  On the day the ceremony was perfect.  It was emotional, partly due to Jules's delivery and tone.  Once we were home, Jules sent us a copy of the ceremony which we have as a keepsake.  We thought was a lovely touch.  We would highly recommend Jules as your celebrant at your Spanish wedding. 

Tina & Clint - June 2018


My husband Ray and I wanted to renew our vows and chose our 25th wedding anniversary to do it.  Jules met with us and discussed the ceremony, she suggested several readings and different vows for us to choose from.  We were nervous but Jules calmed our nerves on the day and it went without a hitch.  The ceremony was lovely and the readings we chose were more than I thought they would be.  The day was beautiful and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony.  Jules is a kind, lovely lady who made our day perfect.  We would highly recommend Jules for any ceremony.   

Clare and Ray - July 2018

Our wedding planner recommended Jules to us. We were nervous about readings etc but Jules really put our mind at ease. She recommended poems and even helped us write our vows. We had a couple of Skype chats and some emails and calls along the way but Jules always answered quickly and was very efficient. Jules always says “Your ceremony has to be perfect for you” and it absolutely was. We can’t recommend Jules highly enough.

Serena & Kyle - November 2018

We were at our friends’ wedding where Jules was the celebrant. We were so impressed with her that we asked her to conduct our ceremony. Our planning was held up for a while as my mum passed away about 6 months before our wedding day. Jules was a great support to us through this difficult time and when we felt able, she suggested elements for our wedding that made sure my mum was remembered and included.

I am Jewish and Kiran is Hindu and we wanted to incorporate both our cultures into our wedding but didn’t know how. We needn’t have worried. Jules put a Hindu element into our ceremony and ended it with a Jewish ‘Breaking of the Glass’ ceremony. Our families were thrilled as were we. Mum would’ve loved it! Our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect and our guests said it was one of the best weddings they’d been to.

At the end of her emails, Jules always puts ‘It’s going to be perfect!’. We can honestly say it couldn’t have been more perfect.

We cannot recommend Jules highly enough and we really feel we’ve made a friend for life.

Sarah & Kiran - April 2019

Jules, thank you so much for an absolutely perfect wedding ceremony experience.

From our first Skype meeting until the special day everything went really smooth working with you. You also did a great job writing our story. 

We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.

Linn & Kristofer - May 2019

What a fantastic experience! Pretty Bow Weddings were AMAZING! We had an idea in mind for our wedding and Jules and Paula from Pretty Bow Weddings really made our dream a reality. They made the planning and ceremony an absolute breeze and suggested the most fantastic suppliers who worked with us to make our wedding day perfect. From the venue viewings with Paula to the BBQ the following day, everything was wonderful. The ceremony that Jules gave was absolutely perfect and the Unity Candle and Hand Fasting element made the day really personal and special to us. The attention to detail was second to none and we really didn’t have to worry about a single thing. We cannot recommend Pretty Bow Weddings and Paula & Jules enough. We are still in awe of them and the work they do. Once again girls, thank you. YOU ARE AMAZING!!

Kelly & Mike - June 2019


Jules was the celebrant at my father’s funeral recently.

Due to her very kind, compassionate and calming demeanour, Jules guided us through an incredibly difficult time and allowed us to make decisions that accurately portrayed the lovely man my father was. The ceremony was beautiful.

Jules remained professional throughout and she worked seamlessly with the funeral directors to ensure everything ran smoothly and flowed as it should. I cannot thank her enough for meeting with us, understanding my father and what he meant to us and for giving him the send off he truly deserved.

Jennie & family

Jules was the celebrant at my mother's funeral in December 2018.  

She was professional, kind and considerate at all times.  She made a very difficult time a little easier, and for that I would like to thank her.  Jules took care of everything and the service was exactly as we had planned.  Jules ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day.   The Eulogy was perfect, Jules had encapsulated my mother's life exactly as we had planned.  The poem which she read out on behalf of my father, was read with such compassion, for the committal Jules read a poem called "Look for me in Rainbows", Jules made this suggestions to us, and it ended the service perfectly. 

My mother's funeral was a beautiful day, for a beautiful lady.  

I would highly recommend Jules, for her professional manner, her friendly compassionate nature, and how she supported us all throughout this sad time, especially on the day of the funeral.  Jules provided us with a copy of the service to cherish forever.   

Carol & Family 

When my husband died suddenly, I was really at a loss as to what kind of service I wanted.  All I knew was that I didn't want it to be religious as Paul wasn't religious at all.  When the funeral director suggested a celebrant I felt this would be the best choice for us.

Jules contacted us and we arranged to meet at home with my family.  She asked us lots of questions about Paul, his life, his hobbies etc.   Jules was so kind and had great empathy.  She even made us tea when it all got a bit too much.

We were obviously anxious on the day of the funeral but we needn't have worried.  Jules gave such a beautiful ceremony which really reflected Paul's life.

We would recommend Jules to anyone.
