EXPERIENCE

CELEBRANT CEREMONIES IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE & BEYOND

A family celebrant for wedding ceremonies, renewal of vows and naming ceremonies, in the UK and Internationally. I’m passionate about officiating ceremonies that bring your story to life with the ones who matter most.

Let’s work together, to create a ceremony that is beautiful, personalised and, best of all, truly unique to you.

CEREMONY STYLE

As a celebrant I am here to make your ceremony as unique as you are
Whether it’s for a wedding, renewal of vows, or a child naming, I will work with you to produce a ceremony that truly reflects who you are and what you believe in. If you have the sad task of arranging a funeral service, I am also here to help.

With a background in broadcasting (radio & TV), I am a great communicator. I am also attentive to detail, caring, understanding, kind and funny (although my sense of humour seems to be wasted on my teenage son!). I have also been a DJ, a master of ceremonies and an event compere, as well as having a variety of roles in the commercial sector.

Tiddington | September 2019

Dave was absolutely fantastic. He took the time to get to know us both and he became a friend. My wife and I were very happy with the service, Dave had written it just how we wanted it and alongside Michaela, delivered our perfect ceremony. We’ve had numerous comments from our family and friends saying what a lovely service it was and we couldn’t agree more! Thank you for making our day perfect. Xx

What's in a celebrant

Selina Skinner

Oving Village Hall | July 2019

I mentioned to a friend that we were having a naming ceremony and doing the service ourselves. She told me we should reconsider and speak to Dave Foster who had done her little boys naming ceremony. I thought it can't hurt to chat with him but i was 99% certain we wouldn't need him and could do it ourselves - how wrong I was.
From our very first meeting with Dave me and my husband knew he was the one we wanted to conduct the ceremony. Dave is an instantly likeable chap and we immediately felt at ease with him.
He asked us what we wanted to include in the ceremony, what was important to us and took time to really get to know us so he could write a ceremony personal to us.
He wrote a beautiful ceremony and added so many personal touches all in accordance with what we had told him. He was completely flexible and made sure that it would be our ceremony and not just a copy/paste ceremony for everyone.
On the day of the service he was so helpful - I'm not sure what we would have done without him and his lovely wife who got stuck in and helped with all the setting up and even the tidying! He helped put a stressed out mummy (who was running late and worrying about every little detail) at ease and everything went perfectly.
I honestly could write a book about just how wonderful Dave was in the meetings and on the day but I won't leave you with an essay to read. All I would say is if you think you can do the ceremony yourself and don't need a celebrant PLEASE PLEASE reconsider and just meet with Dave. I know for a fact our ceremony wouldn't have been half as wonderful had we done it ourselves and thats because Dave is so good at what he does.
For so many of our friends and family it was their first naming ceremony and we had so many people come up to us and say what a lovely service it was.
Dave thank you so much for making Isla's special day even more special we are forever grateful

Thank You!

Hi Dave,

Just a short note from Philippa & I, to say a really BIG thank you for all your help and commitment yesterday and for your advice and assistance beforehand.

Of course it’s a very hard occasion but thank you for getting us through it. So many people commented to both of us on how well the service was, organised, delivered and above all how it was representative of Dad - for which we are truly grateful.

Thanks again and take care


Philippa & Martin

Thank You So So Much!

A beautiful & fitting service

John & Carole Moxon

Aylesbury Vale Crematorium | July 2019

Dear Dave

John and I would like to thank you so much for leading the service to
celebrate the wonderful life of our dear Maisie at Aylesbury Vale
Crematorium on Tuesday 2 July 2019.

It was just a beautiful service in a perfect lakeside setting which you made
more "human" with some humour and your warmth, and managing the slight delay
in Mark's arrival - unfortunately he had not read the e-mail regarding the
change in service but all ended well......

Thank you for volunteering me to lead the singing in the second verse of
Jerusalem, too! I think that I managed to croak a note and was supported by
some friends who sing in my choir! All our family and friends just loved The
Dash poem...... We have had so many compliments saying how beautiful the
service was and a fitting celebration of Maisie's life.

Thank You

John & Carole Hodges

Crownhill, Milton Keynes | June 2019

Dear Dave,

Carole and I thank you so very much for conducting the service for our beloved Neal yesterday. It was simply beautiful and reflected his personality perfectly – the chapel seemed to be full of love for him by so very many people whose lives he had touched throughout his all too short life.

All the arrangements ran like clockwork and we are indebted to Debbie at Heritage for recommending you to us. From our first meeting we were impressed with your professionalism, sincerity and compassion – having you at our side has helped us enormously during these difficult days.

The service was everything we wished for and will remain in our memories for the rest of our days.

Thank you again Dave,

John and Carole

Wonderful

Hi Dave

Just a quick note on behalf of us all. Sorry for the delay but time rushes on.

Thank you for your kindness over the past few weeks. The funeral service for dad was wonderful and just what we wanted. Our friends who were there all said that it was a beautiful and appropriate occasion and celebration of dad’s life.

My thanks again Dave.

Best

Hi Dave, Just to say thank you very much for all of your help with arranging Dads funeral and for conducting the service in such a sensitive, personal and professional way. I think that it all went as smoothly as possible and was exactly what Dad would have wanted. We all celebrated his life with a few drinks and nibbles in the afternoon at our home, all very relaxed. With very best wishes Sue M.

Dear Dave
Just a brief note to say thank you for John Simmonds’ funeral service. We felt it was conducted with great sensitivity, a nice balance of respect and humour. I know the vast majority of the mourners also felt that John had received an appropriate send-off.

Dear Dave
Many thanks for your kind words and the copy of the service script which we will treasure.
I would also like to thank you personally on behalf of my family and the many friends and colleagues who told us how you managed to convey Wilma’s joyful character during the service.
They came away from the chapel feeling it had been a celebration of her life and this was continued back at the Bell with joy not sadness.
All the very best for the future
Kind Regards

Thank you so much for sending through the the keepsake copy of the service script. It is a lovely reminder. I am so glad Angela and I chose you. You managed to capture the essence of Matt and that was not easy to do. You also helped me have the courage to read the eulogy.

I shed a few tears when I opened the envelope. Tears of happiness of a reminder of a lovely day. It was a wonderful send off for him and the wake at home was a great success too. So many happy memories to cherish

thank you again

Hello Dave,
Thank you so very much for making the most difficult time of my life easier to bear.
You led a beautiful, dignified and warm service that honoured my husband, David, and brought comfort to family and friends. Your professionalism and compassion were widely praised by the whole congregation and were certainly much appreciated by myself, Nick and the rest of the family.
Thank you again.

Jackie Hunt

Greenacres Beaconsfield, Bucks | March 2019

Thank you so much for making a difficult day so wonderful. Everyone expressed how much they enjoyed your leading of the service for John and compliments came thick and fast for the professionalism. I don’t think too many people who were there had been to GreenAcres and they all found it refreshing in comparison to the crematorium. Andrew and Tim also did an amazing job of reading the poems. All in all a really lovely day and a beautiful tribute to a brilliant man, he would have loved it.

Once again huge thanks from us all.

Jackie

Child Naming Ceremony

Rebecca Roberts

Stone, Buckinghamshire | July 2018

Dave arranged to visit us within our home to discuss different template options for the naming day and asked how we would like the day to be. Dave, always put our thoughts and opinions first and ensured it was as personal as we liked. He had a clear understanding as to how we would like the ceremony to be as well as keeping in mind traditional layouts with readings, guardians, photo opportunities etc.

My partner and I were very relaxed with the day and wanted to ensure Dave projected a relaxed vibe to our guests. He was very much able to see this through, however always had a professional approach. Dave responded well to emails, text messages and really saw the entire event through from the very first discussion, till a few hours after the naming ceremony to join us in celebrating my little boys 1st birthday.

My partner and I were unsure whether to have a christening or naming ceremony as myself and my family have all be christened, whereas my partners family weren’t. This ceremony was spot on with, pleasing us both and ensuring our wants and needs were met. Friends of mine had their children christened within weeks of Buddy’s naming day and mentioned how his ceremony was so special and personal to him, whereas a christening is more centred around your commitment to the faith and god. We preferred and chose this style of ceremony as we really did want it to be a celebration of Buddy, who is he, who he could become and how much we valued his name and where it came from.

To finish it off, Dave provided us with a wonderful keepsake of the day. He printed off the script, added photos and bound it together so we could read back at what was said. Buddy also got a certificate with signatures from his guardians. This really meant a lot to us, and gave us the sense of a new traditional commitment to our family.

Without a shadow of a doubt, I would recommend Dave Foster to anyone who wanted to have a celebrant. Whether that be for a funeral, naming ceremony or wedding.

Celebrant at Funeral

Caroline Nichols

Oxford | April 2019

This was the first time I’ve had to arrange a funeral and the support and advice provided by Dave was absolutely fantastic. He talked us through each step of the service and gave us advice and options when we weren’t quite sure. On the day itself the service was beautiful and there wasn’t anything that we would have changed. I’m sure we would have made our Uncle proud and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave to others.
