Wedding and Funeral Celebrant in Bristol

Hi, I'm Kay an award winning Family, Wedding and Funeral Celebrant in Bristol. Together we can create a unique, personalised and beautiful ceremony.

Originating from a Somerset town I moved to Bristol, trained as a nurse and enjoyed a long career in the NHS. Initially I was in intensive care, lead to a specialised role as a Transplant Co-ordinator. It just felt right for me, I found it exciting, progressive and I stayed there for 25 years!

Since then I joined the mass Covid vaccination programme in north Bristol, which I loved, and met more wonderful NHS workers and patients. Vital to all these nursing roles were public speaking (TV and radio), kindness, empathy, sympathy, understanding, listening and comforting, all of these skills being transferrable to my Celebrant role.

I have 3 children, a husband and a labradoodle called Arnie. I love being outside in nature be it ocean, in mountains, valleys or woods. It brings me a sense of calm, connection and is a vital part of my life. One of my favourite things to do is pilot gig rowing for Clevedon - trips to regattas around the West Country and meeting meeting old and new friends, getting exercise and fresh air brings a feeling like no other.

Although I have been a celebrant for only 3 years, in March 2023 I was overjoyed to win the UKSOC 'Celebrant Of The Year' award for the South West. Nominations came from previous clients and I was over the moon!

Call or email me for an informal chat and I look forward to being part of your special occasion.Previous longstanding nursing experience has given me kindness, empathy, understanding and a real sense of fun, so I can tailor any ceremony to fit your needs.

Weddings and Vow Renewal
Enabling two people to declare their love is a real honour, and I'll be privileged to be a part of your journey. Your ceremony, whether an intimate affair or a bigger celebration, will encapsulate your one-of-a-kind story. Together, we can create vows and ceremony elements that are all about you, and we can discuss any specific customs or traditions.

As your chosen celebrant my approach is to incorporate your wishes and ensure you and your guests have a wonderful day! Inside or outside, formal or informal, fun or more traditional, anything is possible.

Writing vows that express your emotions may be overwhelming, but I'm here to offer guidance and support should you need it. Your ceremony should be friendly, warm and inclusive to ensure a memorable occasion. Everyone loves a good story so let's tell your story together.

Funeral and Celebrations Of Life
In moments of loss and grief I am here to offer my support, creating a fitting ceremony to reflect a life lived, cherishing the memories while bringing comfort and closure to family and friends.

Throughout this process, I will approach every detail with sensitivity and compassion, working closely with you to truly understand your wishes and incorporate elements that reflect the essence of your loved one. This ensures the ceremony becomes a genuine reflection of their life and the impact they had on those around them.

We will take the time needed to get it right and ensure the ceremony runs smoothly.
