Hello my name is Fred.
I’m interested in anything anyone has to say about anything.
I was born in England and have spent nearly all my life as an entertainer. I have been an actor, a tightrope walker and a sword-swallower.
For many years I ran a French National Circus School in the South of France. I have performed all over the world from USA to China.
I have spent a large part of my career working with children with learning and emotional difficulties and adults with dementia.
I occasionally perform as a singer working with the elderly and I perform with my black Labrador Henry the ‘world’s only mind reading dog!’
I am happily married to Wendy and I have a lovely daughter and now I'm a very happy grandad!
I am also a fully qualified registered Secular Civil Celebrant.
In the last few years I have seen Ioved ones pass away and Loved ones marry and Loved ones born into the family. The cycle of life playing out. I feel very honoured to be part of a profession right at the very heart of these wondrous events.
Baby naming, renewal of vows and weddings should be wonderful joyous celebrations uniquely tailored to the occasion, each one different because we are all different.
Weddings -Lets make the couple, whoever they maybe, right at the centre of this wonderful celebration! Lets let couples marry whenever they choose and wherever they choose and HOW they choose. Let’s create a free service that is unique!
As your Funeral Celebrant I will work very closely with you to create a unique and very personal celebration that all present will remember as something special.
A life centred funeral means the absence of a strict religious framework allowing for the creation of the entire ceremony to be in the hands of the family and the Celebrant. We can choose the structure of the ceremony We can choose what We say and how We say it. The ceremony is free and as such creativity is possible, and an experience which is truly centred on the deceased can be shared by all.
For all these events getting to know the families, learning all I can about the people, is the most important part of the job for me.
Whatever your reason for reading this, be it Wedding, Renewal of vows, Baby naming or a Funeral, I hope I can be of help to you. I look forward to meeting you and going on this extraordinary journey together.
