Justice of the Peace: Brian  Gibb

Brian Gibb

Justice of the Peace, Notary

I am honored to have been appointed by the Governor in April of 2024.

I am a retired CEO that is actively engaged as a community leader and frequently called upon for help with planning important activities. I’m confident that I can help you plan your special day, whether complex or very simple. If you are looking for something quick and easy, I can usually accommodate near-term requests.

I am a friendly, kind, compassionate person who enjoys collaboration with others.

I have traveled the world and I love working with people of all gender identity, nationalities, races, religions, sexual orientation and political beliefs.

I am spiritual but not religiously affiliated and open to all beliefs and faiths.

My familiarity with Portsmouth and the surrounding seacoast area along with a keen eye for beautiful backdrops allows me to help you find that perfect spot for your ceremony.

As a gay man in a 20-year committed relationship with a loving partner, I am especially happy to work with same sex couples for either religious or civil ceremonies.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, travel, hiking, reading & writing, cycling, nonprofit volunteering, and spending time with our King Charles Cavalier spaniel.

I am willing to travel up to an hour from Portsmouth but will consider further in special situations.

I hope you will feel comfortable to contact me for a free discussion to see if I am a good fit for your upcoming ceremony.

Brian was so wonderful to have as our JP. He was an excellent communicator and incredibly thoughtful, was patient with delays and generous of spirit throughout our interactions. He had high attention to detail, guided us through the process seamlessly, and truly provided excellence in all encounters. He is articulate and a gentleman, and complemented our vows perfectly, organizing and providing a beautiful ceremony. I would very highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a JP. He truly went above and beyond, and we are so happy to have been able to work with him. Thank you, Brian! We are so grateful!

(And thank you to Chris, Brian’s partner, for stepping in as a volunteer videographer! Such a gift to have that video! So very grateful.)
