Your ceremony, your way.
Whether you want to say a thoughtful and appropriate good bye to a loved one, or create a very personal wedding or baby-naming ceremony, it must be unique and special. All these ceremonies are so much more flexible these days and, as such, they can truly reflect the people involved – their personalities, quirks, interests. The possibilities are endless.
My background is in sales, training, public speaking and writing but I found my niche when my husband and I bought a coastal hotel in Swanage, Dorset and ran it successfully for twenty years. It was the ultimate job for a ‘people-person’. Having sold the business, I realised that what I missed most was helping guests get the most from their visit – working in the background to make sure they had as good a time as possible.
As a celebrant, l will work with you to ensure that your event is exactly as you want it to be.
At important times in life, we all want to make sure we get everything right, down to the last detail and I will help you to ensure that’s what happens.
As your funeral celebrant, I will meet you and learn as much as possible about the deceased. I will then work with you to write a ceremony that really reflects that life – celebrating the individuality and acknowledging the loss. No two ceremonies will be the same, after all no two people are the same. I will do as much, or as little, as you want. If you would like me to help with music and reading choices as well as scripting the service, I am more than happy to help. I will write the tribute and deliver the eulogy or provide back-up for a family member or friend who would like to do it themselves. Whatever you want, my aim is to support you and deliver as good a farewell as it is possible to have. And if you want to have something out of the ordinary… so long as it’s legal, it’s not a problem!
Whether you choose a cremation, green burial, memorial service or a more unusual farewell, I will be able to guide you through the process and work with your Funeral Director, helping you to ensure that the day reflects the essence of the people involved.
Whilst I am essentially a secular celebrant, if the family would like some religious content, that’s no problem.
I also offer a bespoke wedding or renewal of vows service. Whatever you want, wherever you want – together we can make it happen. Talk to me about your plans and what I can offer to enhance the day and take the strain. I can ‘marry’ you (though a small register office ceremony is also required for legal reasons) and if you want something spectacular, different and tailored to exactly your requirements, then that’s what will happen.
Baby-naming ceremonies, divorce celebrations – if you have a family event to mark, contact me and ask me to work with you to make it personal and special.
I am energetic, efficient and organised and can help your dreams come true.
I am based in Swanage, Dorset and Mojacar in the Almeria area of Spain, but I am happy to travel.
