Celebrant Bespoke Ceremonies

Reviews (11) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

I am an experienced professional public speakers who writes and performs civil ceremonies.

After working for many years as a local authority registrar I understand the restrictions and legalities surrounding wedding ceremonies and licensed venues. I can help you achieve the wedding of your dreams whilst dealing with these restrictions.

Wedding Ceremonies - I pride myself on being professional with the writing of your ceremony and the officiating of your ceremony. Your ceremony will be bespoke and unique. I can give you the freedom to have your wedding your way! Ensure that all of the things you have dreamed of are part of your ceremony including readings, recitals, songs and music, with no restrictions on time or content.
I will do everything I can to make your dream day perfect with the personal touches you have always hoped for.

Handfasting Ceremony - Enjoy your wedding your way by incorporating a Handfasting ceremony as part of your legal marriage at a licensed venue. This part of the ceremony can be conducted outside and with the vows and promises of your choice. This type of ceremony really makes your day very special and unique to you.

Renewal of Vows - If you are married and want to re-affirm your commitment to each other I will create a special Renewal of Vows ceremony that conveys the love and affection you have for each other at a venue of your choice.

Commitment Ceremony - If you are not legally married but want to affirm your commitment to each other, a Commitment Ceremony is the perfect choice. I will create your ceremony and make sure it has the personal touches you really want.

Naming Ceremonies provides families with the perfect occasion to rejoice in the safe arrival of a new child to the family. It is also a great way to bring family and friends together to celebrate the arrival of new adopted children or step children into the family. Having a Naming Ceremony provides an alternative to a religious Christening or Baptism and can be conducted at any venue or location of your choice.

Funeral Service - such a sad time it is often hard to know what you or your loved one wants for a funeral service. I will take the time to sit down and help guide you through making some of those difficult decisions.
I will discuss the type of service you want and ensure you include the wants and wishes of your loved one. More and more people are feeling uncomfortable with having a full religious service but perhaps still feel they want to include a hymn or a prayer. I will work with compassion and the utmost respect to provide you and your family with a funeral service to celebrate your loved ones life. The service will be a fitting and dignified final farewell service and include the readings, hymns and prayers you want.

Thank you so much for your help arranging Shirley's funeral.
Everyone said what a lovely service, very personal and you made people feel comfortable and not tense, as some funerals leave you.
It was sad but also uplifting due to your caring manner. Thank you

A note from us to send you a very big thankyou for your support last week at Dad's funeral. You are very good at what you do!
Your calm support, kindness and warm delivery were very much appreciated. You delivered the tribute so authentically that several people thought you knew Dad!

You made a huge difference on what was a very difficult day and we will always be grateful for that.


What Lynda says...

Thank you so much for your lovely e-mail. I am so pleased and privileged to be able to help you through such a very difficult time.

I know life will be very strange at the moment but know you, Hazel and Iain will be working together to support each other and move on, as best you can. The love and support you have for each will be the strength you need to deal with a day at a time. I am sure you will also have the support from family and friends and make sure you use that support.

Sending my very best wishes to you all and my sincere thanks again, for your lovely e-mail
Kindest regards

Hello Lynda

I wanted to thank you for everything yesterday. So many friends have told me that it was exactly right for Peter. One friend said it was the best Eulogy he had heard. I was always worried as I wanted to make sure we included as many of the things he loved and also his great sense of humour.
Thank you for your patience with me while I kept thinking of more to include.


Thank You

Kind Regards
