Paula Bryant | Family Celebrant

Hello, my name is Paula and I am a family celebrant who endeavours to make certain you have the tailor made ceremony of your dreams. Becoming a celebrant was one of those wonderful light-bulb moments in which I saw a whole new chapter of my working life unfolding in front of me. My experiences to date have equipped me well for the role; it’s now my job to ensure you feel confident and well prepared for your special event.

Paul Standbrook | Family & Funeral Celebrant

Hello, I’m Paul Standbrook and I’m Dad and Grandad to a close-knit, large extended family. I live with my partner Sam (also a Celebrant) in a little cottage in the country and she and I share long experience of providing support at important times in people’s lives. Over the last twenty years I have built a deep insight and a keen interest in people and in the way in which key events impact their lives.

Tony Nolan | Funeral Celebrant

Hello. My name is Tony Nolan and I am proud to be a member of the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants. A funeral service should be a memorable celebration of someone’s life. It should reflect their unique character and be a professional fitting tribute that will help family and friends grieve, remember and celebrate a special life. I will help you achieve this.

Samantha Edmundson | Family & Funeral Celebrant

Hi, my name is Samantha Edmundson (Sam for short). I live in a village in Bedfordshire with my Partner, Paul, and two cats (Atticus and Esmerelda). Between us we have five children and numerous grandchildren.

After spending a number of years commuting up and down the M1, Paul and I decided we needed to re-prioritise our lives. We spent some time travelling around Europe in a very old motorhome named Bessie, taking time to reflect on life and read widely. I also travelled to India and Portugal to find out more about yoga and meditation, which I have been practising for several years.
