Hi, I'm Alison
I’m a civil celebrant and member of the International College of Professional Celebrants. A Celebrant, put simply, celebrates love, which is part of what attracted me to the role. We conduct ceremonies for the special occasions in people’s lives. The days that matter most: births, engagements, weddings, baby naming and adoption ceremonies, vow renewals, and funerals. I am based in South Buckinghamshire, near the beautiful Burnham Beeches (between Slough and Beaconsfield) and am happy to travel further afield.
What's my ceremony style?
My style is classic; gentle, sophisticated yet friendly.
I like things to be done with elegance and style. I’m not going to be dressing up in fancy dress or jumping out of an aeroplane to marry you!
Small to medium-sized, intimate ceremonies in beautiful surroundings appeal to me. I love nature and animals so if you’re looking to have a woodland service, or a ceremony that involves your pets, then I’m your Celebrant.
I especially love dogs and would adore to carry out a wedding ceremony where they are included (I’m still waiting for that opportunity!)
Why choose Alison?
As a professional writer, published author and public speaker, you can trust me to ensure your ceremonies will be beautifully written and delivered. Each person and couple is unique and deserves a bespoke ceremony. Don’t hesitate to get in touch to ask me anything. I will be happy to help!
What do I offer?
I specialise in small to medium sized, intimate, elegant ceremonies, be you a first timer, tying the knot for the second or third time, or have been together for years and would like to have a commitment ceremony.
As well as being a Celebrant, I’m a professional writer,, so you can be assured your ceremony will be beautifully written and delivered.
When you employ the services of a civil celebrant, you can plan your ceremony exactly as you wish. If you would like your dog to play a role, or include a handfasting or sand blending ceremony to get the children involved, you can. It’s your special day and it will be my pleasure to deliver a wedding ceremony that’s as original as you are. Please get in touch for a no obligation chat.

Renewal of Vows
Why choose Alison for your renewal of vows?
I am an independent civil celebrant, which gives me the freedom to help you to choose the service you and your loved ones would like. Unlike a vicar or priest, I do not spend the majority of a person’s funeral talking abut God. I make sure it is the person’s life that is the focus of the service. Unlike a humanist, I am happy to include prayers and hymns if you so wish.
Why choose Alison for your funeral?
I have been a professional writer for over 30 years and am the author of several published biographies. You can rely on me to write and deliver the perfect eulogy, which will be sensitively researched in a face to face meeting at your home.

Thank you, Alison, for helping us
We can thoroughly recommend Alison. We met Alison through a family bereavement. She made a sad occasion a lot easier with her professional enthusiasm and kindness. So much so we asked Alison to be our celebrant at our commitment ceremony. As per usual she approached our day with professionalism understanding and most importantly dignity, always with a smile 😊. She helped us with our special day and we can’t thank her enough. Time has passed since a memory never forgotten. Thank you, Alison, for helping us. Much love Vicky and Kim Xx
Wedding Vow renewal and Ruby Anniversary Ceremony.
Alison was recommended to us and she didn’t disappoint. From our first meeting through to the big day, she helped and advised us through the journey. Alison listened, and did her homework. She was very well organised, friendly and professional.
Alison made the whole experience stress free and the ceremony was very relaxed. Together with her passion for her work, she made the big day a very special one for us both.
We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Celebrant, all our guests commented on how good she was.
Thank you, Alison, for being there and making special memories for us.
Alison made our vows renewal a very special day with her professional, warm and conscientious approach. We heard about her from a friend and from the moment we contacted her, Alison was amazing! She kept us on track throughout and made our day more than the sum of all its parts. From our first face to face meeting where she went through a detailed interview to collect details from both of us, to the day itself, Alison went above and beyond to deliver beyond our expectations. She conducted our vows renewal with poise, confidence and warmth and spoke about us in front of our friends and family as if she had known us both for years. She also encouraged us both to deliver our very best vows too and kept us both on track – so much so, we were both so prepared on the day, there was no room for nerves! Her ideas were awesome – it was lovely to include a candle lighting ceremony to include my mum who had passed away and my Dad who was unable to make it through a phone link in a cradle which Alison had brought, and lovely to include something new in our ceremony with the ribbon-tying ceremony that she suggested. Alison went above and beyond after the ceremony too, presenting us with the ceremonial woven ribbon in a beautiful box with a signed certificate. We would recommend Alison to anyone marking a special event and hope to use her services again at some point in the future. Thanks so much Alison.
