About Pride Ceremonies® and Jennifer Cram
As a Humanist celebrant, proud mother of a gay child, and member of AME and PFLAG, I am totally committed to marriage equality and to ensuring that the ceremonies I create are respectful, celebratory, and fun. This extends to how I work and what I charge.

I'm NOT going to tell you I'm awesome, or funny, or quirky, or hip, or vibrant. It's not about me, it's about you. Your ceremony. Your day. Your style. I can be all of those things, but really, what matters is that I will make sure that your ceremony includes only what you want.
  • I won't insert anything that is solely designed as an opportunity for me to shine. I repeat it's not about me, it's about you
  • I won't force you to do anything you don't want to do
  • I'll work with your photographer and videographer to make sure your photos/videos are fabulous (and that no celebrant body parts get in the way)
  • and I won't recycle tired old words that someone else has written (have you noticed how often you recognise the words in so many ceremonies - and I'm not talking about for better for worse, for richer for poorer, I'm talking about all the other words in the ceremony?)
A commitment ceremony is not and should not be regarded to be just another non-legal ceremony that can be created to a formula that has its roots in the traditional hetero wedding and therefore co-opts you into hetero stereotypical roles. Unfortunately, this is too often the case, with celebrants using one of their hetero wedding ceremonies and leave out the legal bits, they tend to charge about the same as a naming ceremony

While what I charge is affordable, my fee reflects the complexity of the ceremony and the many hours I devote to developing, creating and performing the ceremony. And, because part of my service is to share with you the negotiating techniques I learned over many years of managed of multi-million dollar services, I guarantee that not only will you have a much more emotionally satisfying experience (as will your guests) your bottom line costs for you whole celebration will reflect savings that are more than the difference between my fees and those charged by less committed celebrants.

My aim is that you have a ceremony that is perfect for you, that no-one looks at their watch, and everyone goes away saying "that was so them...." so I take a very creative approach to fusing tradition (a much or as little as you want) with your personal style to create a contemporary personal ceremony. I will manage your ceremony, conduct it with warmth and good humour, but do nothing to make myself the centre of attention - this is your day, you will be centre-stage. It IS all about you

So I do the work for you
Every ceremony I create is purpose created for a particular couple or individual and is therefore is a personally positive experience for you as well as for your guests.

No pre-written set ceremonies or mix-and-match ceremonies.


Just wanted say how wonderful yesterday's ceremony was - so many of our guests commented on how special and personal it was and that they really felt included. Thank you so much for everything and being the backbone of what made our day so perfect. We couldn't be happier! Shaun & Chris xoxo
