Bernice Benton (Berni), The Alternative Celebrant, is based in Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Mid Wales …
"We all reach junctions along our life’s winding road, that need marking with a celebration; a time of reflection; or some form of commemoration.
As an “Alternative Celebrant”, I aim to help you punctuate your life story by guiding you to create an event that is as unique as you are. I believe we are all ordinarily extraordinary. I specialise in Intimate Alternative Celebrations of Love and Unity, and Memorials that help express yours and your loved ones’ own personalities.
I would love to help you celebrate, commemorate, or find solace with or for a person, pet or occasion in your life.
Alongside those ‘traditional’ chapter changes in our lives: Marriages, Births, Deaths; there are so many more occasions that cause for a breather, a moment of reflection and a bit of time to celebrate.
At every crossroads in our journey we should take time to reflect, celebrate or commemorate. I can help facilitate this; whatever the occasion. There Are No Rules."

Alongside being a Celebrant, Berni is also a Guesthouse owner, Stained Glass Artist, Gardener and Lady Lily The Pink of The Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
