Meet Julie & Emily

“I would highly highly recommend Emily and BCEO to anyone who wants a super friendly, professional and all-round perfect ceremony, whatever the occasion.”


Emily Westlake

I enjoy nothing more than guiding and inspiring my clients to tailor their ceremony to suit their personalities – the more funky and unusual the better!

My years as a registrar allowed me to support literally thousands of people through the planning and delivery of their ceremonies and so I know exactly what works – and more importantly what doesn’t.

I live in the centre of Salisbury, have three gorgeous children and a chocolate Labrador called Poppy.

In my spare time I love a large gin and tonic, live music, travelling the world, festivals (Glastonbury is my favourite), reading and yoga. I am a perpetual student, I speak several languages and have read much about Buddhist perspectives on life and death.

Julie Lane

I started conducting ceremonies in 2004 as a registrar, and hence was directly involved in over 2000 ceremonies, including marriages, civil partnerships, naming and renewal of vow ceremonies. I relished my involvement at such important and significant milestone events in people’s lives.

Since the launch I have been able to conduct ceremonies throughout the country. I have designed ceremonies with such lovely couples at such a variety of locations including The Lanesborough in London, Blenheim Palace near Oxford as well as other venues, outdoor space and fantastic woodland settings achieving the hopes and dreams for so many.

I have developed my own Bespoke Ceremony style which I am happy to share with you and I am pleased to say that I continue to receive amazing compliments for my ceremonies.

I live near Salisbury and am happily married to my husband Andy, we have two grown up children and two black Labradors.
