I am a celebrant and my aim is to help families and couples plan the ceremony they want, whether that is a funeral, wedding celebration, or ceremony to mark other important life stages such as the naming of a new baby, or renewal of vows. I have excellent writing skills, am used to speaking in public and have a lifelong love of literature and poetry. As a person I am kind, empathetic and well-organised. In my professional life I have a great deal of experience of organising events and know that the details matter.
I’ve successfully completed the national qualification Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (QCF), which is delivered by Civil Ceremonies Ltd, who started Celebrant-led funerals in the UK in 2002. I have also gained the NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples (RQF), covering Wedding & Partnership Celebration Ceremonies, Commitment Ceremonies, Renewal of Marriage & Partnership Vows and Naming Ceremonies. You can be assured of my qualifications to help you plan your special occasion.
Although you need to be reassured that I have the skills to carry out the role of a celebrant, the focus of my energy is always going to be you – the person planning the funeral.
My home is in Oxfordshire and I am available to conduct ceremonies across the UK. Please contact me to discuss your plans, I am always happy to help.
