Ask the Wedding Celebrant: Annette Henry

Gold Accredited Guernsey Tour Guide, Annette Henry, has been offering a variety of walking tours and themed guided walks in the islands of Guernsey for many years and has recently qualified as an Authorised Civil Celebrant. We spoke to Annette to find out more:

Annette Henry left the nursing profession and for the past 25 years has run her own business as a highly successful Gold Accredited Tour Guide within the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Her easy-going approach, attention to detail and love of history is the reason why so many locals and visitors enjoy her unique style of tour guiding, winning her many recommendations and repeat business.

The idea of Wedding Tourism is not only an exciting new concept, but something Annette has been interested in for some time. Combining her skills as an Authorised Civil Celebrant and Tour Guide, she hopes to be able to work with couples to help plan short breaks for family and friends wanting to come over for the wedding, making the most of their stay whilst enjoying the most memorable day on the Islands of Guernsey

Annette is looking forward to being able to legally marry couples in a place of their choice, on any day of the week and at a time to suit them, all within budget. Her style would be best described as truly individual. Working closely with the couple over many months, listening, preparing and personalising their wedding, she wants every couple to have a totally unique celebration.

Having lived on Guernsey all her life, there are some very special places she would love to share with couples. The islands are blessed with stunning scenery and spectacular coastlines all year round, but venture just inland and there are a myriad of locations just waiting to be rediscovered.

Annette’s top tips for couples considering the Islands of Guernsey as their wedding destination are simple. The islands are as diverse as they are different, so deciding where and when to get married is the first step. Once the location has been chosen it is imperative to take your time to talk to your Celebrant, who will advise, help you plan and take the stress out of the day.

But above all, it’s all about making memories and treasuring them forever.
