Hi, I'm Linda

My name is Linda Bond and I am a Wedding and Family Celebrant in the South West of England.
I live just near the coast in beautiful North Devon, close to our three grown up children and one grandchild.

For me, being a wedding and family celebrant is about helping you feel listened to, understood and supported at times when you are both happy and sad.

What's my ceremony style?

Should you choose to call me to see if I can provide you with a bespoke customised service. I promise you, that whether you are experiencing either a sad or happy event, I will help you make it your event. I’ll help you celebrate, have fun, laugh and smile, and I’ll help you remember, cherish and say your goodbyes however hard they may be.

Whatever, and however you want it said, I’ll make sure its heard.

Why choose Linda?

In my career as a social worker, a lecturer and an inspector I have met and worked with so many different characters and personalities, we are all very different. I have experienced some difficult and challenging times and whilst difficult, they have left me feeling privileged and humbled.

Our values, views, opinions and choices differ enormously. But we have in common a need to be treated non-judgmentally and without discrimination or prejudice. I proudly embrace diversity.

What do I offer?

Weddings

Each couple are unique. They all have hopes and plans for their special day and it’s up to me to help them come alive.

I love to work with couples that want to create their very own special day, for it to be fun and different.

Living by the beach means I know well the local beach wedding venues. I do particularly love a wedding the beach as the back drop, waves rolling in and salty air.

The basic cost of your wedding ceremony is £450 and includes a home visit (distance dependant), telephone/skype contact with you, a draft ceremony for checking, order of ceremony agreed, friendly support, liaison with your venue, walk through prior to ceremony, professional delivery of your ceremony in the venue of your choice, and your own keepsake written copy of your ceremony. I also include a ceremony certificate that will be signed by yourselves and up to two witnesses.

Excludes travel to and from to the venue, overnight accommodation if so required and any special ceremony elements.

A deposit will be taken of 50% of the total cost.

Additional ceremony elements can be interwoven through your ceremony, if you choose and prices of these are available on request.

Funerals

As a funeral celebrant, my key responsibility is to meet with you, the family of the deceased and methodically record details of the life of the deceased, so that what is written depicts the true character of that person. Along with the bereaved family and friends, you will put together an outline of the ceremony. A bespoke ceremony, properly prepared, will be delivered with confidence, care and sensitivity. My intention is to help and support you as a family and other mourners who are coming to terms with their loved one’s death.

The basic cost of a funeral ceremony is in the range of £175 – £500. This includes a home visit, creating a portrait of the deceased person, liaising with the funeral director, crematorium and conducting the ceremony.​

There is no cost for the funeral ceremony of a child under the age of 16. There will however, be a small cost incurred to cover expenses such as travel and any overnight accommodation.

Brilliant wedding celebrant

5 Stars
Katie Stewart

Wedding | 06/11/2022 | Croyde Beach

Linda was an absolutely perfect choice as our wedding celebrant. From day one she made us feel comfortable and relaxed with her and over the year prior to our wedding we would meet for a drink and a chat so that she could get to know us in a natural way to build a ceremony that was totally ‘us’. Not only did it mean the ceremony was exactly how we hoped it would be but it also made it feel like someone who really knew us was marrying us.
