Funeral Services: I truly believe that to conduct a beautiful funeral ceremony is the last nice thing I can do for someone, and as such I will ensure that I write a very special Service with your loved one as the 'Star'. It will always be entirely about the person you have lost, while showing true empathy with the family and friends who are grieving. Services can be non-religious or semi-religious, the content is down to you. I recognise the huge importance of this occasion, as an opportunity to say a formal, yet personal, farewell to a loved one. I will visit you in your own home, or elsewhere if you prefer, to discuss all options, at your convenience, and promise the utmost respect and dignity at all times. I also guarantee reliability and attention to detail.
Weddings/Civil Partnerships/Renewal of Vows/Blessings: These are, by their nature, incredibly joyous occasions, and require careful planning to ensure that everything runs smoothly and is enjoyable and stress-free. I am more than happy to help you with the formal part of your day. I will meet with you, and assist you to construct a personalised, meaningful and romantic ceremony that will ensure your special day remains a valuable memory. Your service can be in any location of your choice, so the possibilities are endless! I will endeavour to create a truly outstanding occasion for you and guarantee reliability and attention to detail at every turn. NB. Don't forget under English law you will need to be 'legally married' (i.e. in a Register Office for example) before your unique and special ceremony takes place.
Naming Ceremonies: Whether it be for your precious newborn, or maybe to welcome step-children or adopted children to the family, or a naming or re-naming at any stage of your life, I am there to help you to organise a very special ceremony. I will be pleased to discuss everything with you, and will entertain in particular any special requests or procedures you may wish. Nothing is set in stone, and I am very flexible and easy-going in my approach. These ceremonies can be conducted wherever you wish too. This is your day.

Losing my own dear Mum is the reason for me choosing to work closely with bereaved families as a Funeral Celebrant and the name for my services is most definitely intended as a tribute to my Mum.
This very special work has placed me in a unique position to assist you in a relaxed, understanding and empathic way to ensure that your chosen ceremony is exactly as you wish it to be.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I very much look forward to being able to help you create your personal and fitting tribute to your loved one.
