Training: NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples & Funeral Celebrancy
Info: My ceremonies have a uniquely personal touch, whether they are weddings, namings or funerals. Your memories, anecdotes, thoughts are interwoven into a beautifully crafted script that captures your personalities or, with funerals, that of your loved one. Ceremonies can be traditional, modern, semi-religious or completely off the wall. Marriages, vow renewals, partnership conversions feature your love story. Naming ceremonies celebrate parental love and promises for their child’s future. With funerals I specialise in the celebration of life and include a life story with each ceremony script. I have several decades experience in the wedding industry, established an award winning baby group and parent support network, volunteer at a bereavement café and have worked in palliative care specialising in life story work. I am trained to NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Couples, Naming Ceremonies and Funerals. A £5 donation from every funeral I conduct goes to the Children’s Funeral Charity.
