What is a Celebrant? How I can help with your family ceremonies.

A celebrant can help you to mark those most important events in life by writing a bespoke service for your celebration.  Traditional services have usually followed a formula with the words taken from a set text which are used for every person or couple.  

A celebrant can make your celebration unique by writing the ceremony you want using your words.  

Imagine having a wedding celebrant to help in writing your own wedding vows which mean something to you both, expressing your love and commitment and making promises from the depth of your hearts.

Or family ceremonies to mark important events such as welcoming a new baby into your family with your own words committing to bring your best efforts to making their lives happy and fulfilled. 

As well as writing the service, a celebrant will also conduct the ceremony and as they have met with you and talked with you your service will be exactly as you would wish.


Specialising in Child Naming, Weddings and Civil Partnerships, Renewal of Vows, Funerals and Memorials, 1 am dedicated to making each ceremony unique to you and special in every way. 

Not being affiliated to any particular secular, humanist or religious belief means I can help my clients have freedom of choice to shape their ceremony in the way which suits them best.


I am a professional celebrant who trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants (in conjunction with the College of Celebrancy UK) and am registered with and insured with their body. 

Having attended a number of stark, impersonal services in registry offices and crematoria, I believed there must be something better, some way to introduce a very personal element into a Ceremony and  something centred more on the individual rather than the institution.  Seeing a funeral service given by a Celebrant , I was impressed by the calm, reassuring and sensitive handling of the service by the celebrant, and also the beautiful and memorable nature of the ceremony.  

With 30 years in education and being accustomed to public speaking, I decided that I wanted to be involved in writing and taking beautiful personal Ceremonies.
