2020 Weddings: I am ONLY accepting Elopements in the NH/So. ME/ No. MA seacoast region for 2020 AND I will also WELCOME English/Spanish Bilingual ceremonies.

After a decade of celebrating with so many wonderful couples I am stepping away from weddings for a while. I am happy to refer you to one of my amazing colleagues, please message me with the location of your ceremony so I can refer you to an appropriate match.

Jo Maden, LifeCycle Celebrant. I am a professional Wedding Celebrant based in Dover, New Hampshire. As an experienced officiant I am well-organized and dedicated to providing personalized service to each of my clients. I am a graduate of the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, trained in the history, creation and presentation of unique wedding ceremonies. A great match for me is a couple seeking an original, memorable ceremony and who are open to a collaborative process. Conducting a rehearsal and communicating with your other ceremony vendors is also a part of my process and essential in ensuring a professional and worry-free ceremony.

Jo has been a public speaker for over 25 years and began performing ceremonies in 2008. In addition to being a Certified LifeCycle Celebrant, Jo is an Ordained Interfaith Minister of The Universal Brotherhood Movement, allowing her to perform ceremonies in Massachusetts and Maine as well. She also serves as a Justice of the Peace in the state of New Hampshire.
