I do specialize in ‘Character’s’. From time to time I get asked to dress up according to them, a witch/fortune teller, Princess Leia, a Steampunk Time Lord, Maleficent, Gatsby, a Lookalike (Madonna), or a grumpy comedic character. Whatever your theme I will adapt and bring that to life! I own a myriad of quality costumes, props that will impress.

Why choose Esther?

From a background in Travel, beginning on 5* Cruise Ships and Entertainment,
I am most grateful for having the opportunity to have had adventures requiring my creativity.

 Taking my client’s stories and tales as my Muse and sprinkling ‘feel good’ magic as I take the audience on a thrilling journey.
Producing and presenting entertainment, hosting events, and special occasions, Giving you ‘Your Moment’.
Conducting memorials, dedicating tributes, hosting special occasions here in the United Kingdom, and Beyond…
Never has my passion for a Clients ‘Memorable Experience’ ever been dulled!?
I am privileged to dedicate wholly, to manifest and customize a Ceremony tailored to your desire, Your Individuality, Your incomparable, UNPARALLELED UNIQUENESS.

Funerals

Most of my experience has been Funeral Ceremonies, Memorials & Tributes.
I do Love Life and I am naturally empathetic and there is a lot to be said about how fragile life is, we are also privileged to have wondrous memories and give a personal farewell, grieving together and celebrating together by regaling stories that touched us.

Trust me to take care of your event in the appropriate manner you would like to see Your Loved One have the send-off they deserve.

This service is customized to the exact detail as You visualize it, so you don’t have to worry about a thing on the day.

You decide if you would like a photo presentation or perhaps share a family video, poetry, music, we will work together to take the pressure off you.

We will Celebrate Life as solemn and seriously or as uplifting and humorous as you wish it, Celebrating Love and Life Your Way.

I am encouraging eco-friendly funerals as much as possible, it reduces the cost which can be huge pressure on families.
Again, there is a lot of information out there and I can help you and guide you through the process.

Prices From
