Give me a call on
As a Family and Funeral Celebrant trained by the UK Society of Celebrants, I feel strongly that the ceremonies I write and deliver are about you and not, in any way, about me.
Whatever the occasion - a celebration of life, naming ceremony, vow renewal or wedding - I put my personality to one side in order to concentrate on those who have hired my services. After all, it is "your day, your way" and while I can offer tips and advise based on my experience and look after the practicalities of the event, you will always have the last word and, if you wish, you can be involved in the ceremony every step of the way.
Even if it is a sad occasion, such as saying goodbye to a loved one, I would hope that you will be able to look back on the ceremony later with a smile knowing that the deceased was duly honoured and that the words and music were "just right".
Since starting my work as a Celebrant, I feel truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people who have taken the time to send me kind words of gratitude afterwards. That said, I do feel a tad uncomfortable sharing some of them - albeit with their permission of course. I thought long and hard about adding this page to my website, but that said, I do understand that when planning a ceremony of any kind, it is important to hear from those who have been there before.
I am also the sort of online shopper who always checks out what other purchasers have to say about an item before I add it to my basket... so, here goes ....
Tim and Helga's wedding
“It was truly magical. Everyone else faded away and Tim and I felt it was an incredibly special moment just for the two of us. The right words said from the heart to each other with your help. A million thanks for all your word-smithing and patience! It was beyond perfect. As promised you didn’t lose a single person.”
“I wanted to drop you a line to thank you once more for producing and conducting the most incredibly moving and wonderful wedding ceremony for us at Voewood.
So many friends have asked us for a copy of the ceremony and also loved the words. You were simply superb.”
