Funeral | 07/25/2022 | Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton

I doubt any other celebrant spends as much time and effort in preparation and delivery as Laura. She has such a wonderful warmth and calmness. Laura takes time to really get to know you and your loved one and delivers a beautiful service. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone needing a celebrant.


Perfect celebration of Life for my sister

Funeral | 07/28/2022 | The Downs Crematorium, Brighton

Thank you deeply for your heartfelt and professionalism in delivering the order of service for my Sister Sharon (Shaz). Your compassion was heartfelt, you did our family proud.
From the time spent with my Mother and Niece in hearing stories and anecdotes. To putting together a wonderful eulogy for Shaz.

Thank you, for your support and helping us say goodbye on what was an emotionally difficult day, for my little Sister.

Wedding | 07/02/2022 | Martlets Hospice

Laura had conducted a funeral for a friend a few weeks ago and blew me away with the way she made the experience such a peaceful one. So I had no hesitation in contacting Laura when I needed a celebrant to conduct a unique wedding service for a bride to be and her wife to be. This was unique for many reasons; it was taking place at the Martlets Hospice as the mother of one of the brides was receiving end of life care. It was also a wedding celebration for the poorly family member to be a part of as the official wedding doesn’t take place until later this month. It also was happening with just 4 days notice! Laura was wonderful from the moment I contacted her! She met the brides via a zoom call and was able to design a very special and personalised service in just a couple of days.. her words couldn’t have been more perfect and she conducted the ceremony with such a calm and caring manor whilst also ensuring there was an element of joyous celebration too. She really did make the whole occasion one to remember and we will be forever grateful for Laura giving us such a special memory. I speak for the whole family when I say we couldn’t recommend Laura enough.
