Hi, I'm Carol

If you are looking for a celebrant for your ceremony, I am passionate about telling your precious stories for each and every occasion. “Love is all around” whether this is for a Wedding, Vow Renewal, Baby Naming, Funeral or Celebration of Life.. Having worked in Health & Social Care in varying roles, trained as a nurse and social worker, In 2021, I trained as a celebrant with the International College of Professional Celebrants.. I am fully qualified to NOCN Level 3 for all ceremonies and fully insured.
I have the ideal skills to talk with people at ease, and build trusted relationships. I am very creative, which is ideal when you are a celebrant, to have imagination, and skills to adapt your ceremony style to how you want it to be? It would be a pleasure to work closely with you to develop what you would like to see evolve for your occasion.
Let’s do this together..

What's my ceremony style?

I love to build on the love that people show for a person or each other, to explore and deliver the very best ceremony it can be. Venues for these ceremonies are important to build the ambiance for the occasion that may be happening.
I find it very easy to start a conversation, and build a rapport with people; we can then start building the ideal ceremony together.
I am a unique story-teller, and I have been praised by my clients for my thoughtful ways and touches to the occasion.
As I say “let’s do this together”. I am focused and calm. If people are not sure what they want I would encourage them to say what first comes into their mind, then I sow further seeds that will help to get a good end result. I am imaginative and quick to find solutions for whatever may come my way.

Funeral | 01/10/2023 | Colchester Crematorium and Chapel

I have known Carol in a professional capacity as she was my Regional Manager when we worked in the care sector.
Carol is known for her professionalism, compassion, honesty and straightforward attitude.
It’s no surprise that the years of knowledge and experience make her a truly remarkable Celebrant.
Attention to detail was paramount as well as keeping good communication with myself and my Brother.
Carol had some amazing ideas and everything was sent to proof read before being finalised.
The service itself was very personal, wasn’t rushed, included everything we anticipated.
The kind supportive words were a great addition and seeing her give a look or asking if we were ok was greatly appreciated.
We have such beautiful treasured memories of our Mum’s Service and final journey and for that, we are very grateful to Carol.
The calm influence from Carol helped us stay level headed, think things through and ensure the day went smoothly.
I’ve also booked Carol for our Vow renewal later in the year!
Anyone searching for a celebrant need look no further.

We would like to say massive thank you for our amazing, absolutely wonderful ceremony!
Carol made every single bit of the ceremony about us! It was so magical on the day!
But before the big day – we created an incredibly beautiful bond with Carol. She become part of the family, always caring and supportive.
Having a celebrant was the most rewarding part of the wedding – we laughed, cried and enjoyed every moment of our ceremony.
From the bottom of our hearts – Thank you!

Wedding | 09/15/2022 | Hengrave hall

Carol is simply amazing! From start to finish our ceremony was beautifully crafted and it was so special. Before the wedding carol spoke to us weekly to prepare the ceremony and make it personal to us. She very kindly helped us write our vowels separately and then gave them to us in stunning booklets to keep. We still keep in touch with carol now and chat regularly! We will most definitely be asking her to be our celebrant for future events! Just an amazing person with a heart of gold! Thanks carol x
