Wedding and Funeral Celebrant in Bristol

Hello my name is Joanna, I am a qualified Family, Wedding and Funeral Celebrant, covering Bristol and Bath. Although I cover Bristol and Bath, I would be thrilled to travel far and wide to deliver your ceremony.

Whether you are celebrating the end of a loved one’s life, a new life or a magical journey together it would be my honour to deliver your ceremony.


I am a proud mother of a six-year-old little boy and an 8-year-old dog called buddy. I have worked for over 10 years , managing a great team supporting people through trauma which is also a passion of mine and again an honour.

When asking family and friends to describe me… they described me as a people person. Someone who thrives off caring, sharing, kindness and laughter. I really do like to create that wholesome happy feeling.

Myself and my husband have been together for nearly 20 years, have travelled all over the world, to some fantastic places. We have  snowboarded mountains, trekked through jungles and met some of the most fabulous friends we could of ever wished for.


We now live in fabulous Bristol and in 2013 we created WEDFEST!

We had Thai dancers, glitter, DJs, crazy golf, bouncy castles, camping, fire pits. It was magical!!

I’m definitely not here to tell you how amazing our wedding day was, but I want to show you the reasons WHY I’m here, and why I became a celebrant… and its simple!

When we created Wedfest, I didn’t really know much about celebrants. I settled for a standard registrar in a hotel, before we went to our magical field of fun… I can honestly say, I WISH we had a celebrant at Wedfest to create our own personalised ceremony unique to us both.

Instead we had a standard printed script that was sent a few days before… We had to choose vows from option 1 or 2, and THEN I didn’t even meet the registrar until I walked down the aisle! Believe me when I say, to have a celebrant at your wedding or any other occasion is an absolute honour for all of those involved.

As a fully trained celebrant, I am able to write and deliver your wedding, funeral, naming ceremony, vow renewal and any other occasion you would like to celebrate,


I personally can’t wait to speak with you, share your ideas, dreams and make them a reality.

If you would like me to dress up for your theme. IL DO IT!  If you want your pet/s involved, LETS DO THAT TO.

.If you want me to conduct a ceremony on top of a mountain. – WHY NOT?

The possibilities are endless when love is involved.  And remember, Your  ceremony is about you and your loved one, so let’s make it exactly how you would like it.

Believe me when I say My main achievement is to make your day memorable, really show off who you are, and show the world what you want to say!

So, if you think I maybe the celebrant your looking for, and you want the feeling of excitement, and uniqueness all rolled in to one, then please give me a call and get in touch. …. Be assured there is no pressure, we can have a chat and you can see how you feel about me, there is no expectations to choose me at all……, but I really hope you do! 😊

Thanks for reading! Joanna
