About Me

jill-barcroftHaving spent most of my career working and engaging with individuals, businesses and public sector organisations, becoming a professional Celebrant has been the most natural of career changes that I could have ever imagined. Being a mum myself has taught me the true meaning of such valuable family occasions and the positive impact that they have on our families, and our children. We develop positive self-esteem by communicating the value we feel for one another.

I have vast experience in creating and delivering both informal and formal presentations and public speaking, as well as being a recognised member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I possess a passion and energy to bring people together to share special moments in life, and I have an appreciation of all things beautiful and precious.

I was originally asked by a close friend if I would do her the honour of acting as the Celebrant at her newly born daughter’s Naming Ceremony. I felt great pride in being invited to do so. As a result of creating and delivering a truly meaningful and intimate Ceremony I was asked to perform others out of which It’s all in a Name was born!
