EXPERIENCE

After listening carefully to your needs, I would write a beautiful and personal ceremony for you, which I deliver with sensitivity and creativity. Becoming an Independent Celebrant arose after many years of ceremony writing, and is very much helped by my experience as a teacher, mentor and lecturer. I have 26 years' experience of English literature and literacy teaching, and of giving pastoral support to students of all ages -- including adults aged up to 80!

Whatever your time scale, such as planning a wedding months ahead, or a funeral the next week, I will always make time to meet with you, then I would write and edit the services to exactly match your needs and your feedback. You are free to contact me anytime with updates and requests. If you want a religious element to your service, or wish for a totally non-religious service, this can be arranged. To pray or not to pray? It is up to you! I am neither a Church nor a Humanist minister, so can be totally flexible in my approach.

Ceremonies can take place in so many forms and venues that are really too numerous to mention! Every client has different needs and ideas, so I will work closely with you to give you the service you want -- and advise you on location options, if you wish. I also provide bound copies of the service as keepsakes.

I am totally without prejudice, open to new ideas, and have a good sense of fun and optimism! I am more than happy to support you with suggestions and materials you may need for venues, types of ceremonies, wording, poetry etc.... My English skills and poetry studies even lend to me to write some poetry of my own for you, if you wish.

My interest in writing and delivering different services first came after writing my own wedding service in 1990. I arranged my first baby son's Natural Burial service in 2004, before I was aware of the existence of celebrants! Since then, I have helped with many services-- both officially and unofficially.

After training with Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in 2016, being a celebrant became my main profession. Membership of the FPC also means I am part of a wonderful network of support and ongoing professional development.

Where needed, I have much local knowledge and am happy to provide support and guidance on other areas of service planning such as:
- venues
- caterers
- dressmakers.

Additionally, I can help with aspects of post-death planning to enable you and your loved ones to live your life to the full, knowing that your wishes and arrangements are all organised. This includes:
- choice of Funeral Plan & Funeral Director
- details for Funeral Service Music & Readings
- advice on Will Writing options.

Please do feel free to ask for my help in these areas if you wish.

ALWAYS LISTENING - ALWAYS HELPING

CEREMONY STYLE

I produce and deliver beautifully crafted ceremonies for all occasions and beliefs, including:

- Funerals, Wakes & Memorials
- Weddings, Blessings & Vow Renewals (including same-sex marriages)
- Baby Namings, Adoption Ceremonies .... and any other services you require, please just ask!

I will happily adapt the formality and content of the service to suit what YOU need.

Last year when my partner passed away, I asked Ana to perform the funeral service.
With her patience, diligent but sensitive gathering of information & her sympathetic approach to the whole process, she made a difficult time, much easier than expected.
The service went wonderfully, getting compliments from friends & family for weeks afterwards. Funerals are supposed to be a celebration of life & this one most certainly was, thanks Ana.
