Why choose John for your renewal of vows?

Your love, that you share together is unique to you, so why would you want, “Just any service”?

YOUR service needs to be as unique as your love for each other and why wouldn’t you want that?

Comedy, love, poetry and many other aspects of the service can be carried out in accordance with your wishes.



At times of great sadness after the loss of a loved one, sometimes the words that are said at the funeral or ceremony (the eulogy) are the words that comfort one and all.

Eulogy writing is a service that I can offer for you to deliver your own eulogy at the service or ceremony.

One of the first celebrants in the area to offer, “Living Eulogies”
