Fellowship of Professional Celebrants | The Celebrant Directory



Hi, I'm Wendy

Hello, I’m Wendy, an Independent Celebrant, I trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in the UK and now live in Malaga, Southern Spain working across Spain and the UK.

I love celebrating life’s important moments, whether it’s saying hello to, and naming a new baby or goodbye to a loved-one and everything else in between. I’m a positive person believing there’s nothing more important than sharing life’s big events. As a Celebrant I’m honoured to be sharing your moments with you.

As your Celebrant I’ll work with you to create your perfectly unique ceremony which incorporates your beliefs, secular, religious or spiritual. I’ll work with you to ensure your ceremony is perfect for you. On the day I will be there for you as your support and guide, ensuring you and your guests have a perfect day. It’s your day and it should be all about you. Do contact me and lets chat about ideas for your ceremony.

What's my ceremony style?

As a fully inclusive celebrant, I write from the heart, with love, passion, romance and humour, but always telling your story, your way.

You’ll have control all the way, giving as much or a little as you want others to hear, I write around what you want to share. I have written weddings where the groom has cried more than the bride, and funerals where people said they ached from all the laughter, and funeral directors were turned to tears. My words telling their story, as I would yours!

I’m a good listener and often referred to as “aunty Wendy”, you can rely on me to write the the perfect ceremony for you, to be your support, always having handkerchiefs to hand, whether it be for tears of joy, or tears or sadness, I will be guiding you throughout your ceremony.

So if you want someone who will listen, write from the heart and who cares, tell me your story!

Why choose Wendy?

I’m used to working for busy people who are short on time! My favourite thing to do is read, I love words and languages. I can chat for hours and love to dance – even when there is no music. My best ideas come to me in the shower, frustrating as the water makes the note paper soggy! My most guilty pleasure is a pot of tea in a bone china teapot with matching cup and saucer and of course, Champagne!

I’m full of fun, caring, and loving, and when working with a family or couple, I share that fun loving care with them whilst writing their perfect ceremony.

What do I offer?



As a Celebrant I offer a ceremony which is written around your love story, incorporating any religious or spiritual beliefs you may hold, a love story unique to you.

I love to write romantic ceremonies that are your story told your way, encapsulating your personalities and quirks, making it unique and perfect to you.

From our first meeting until I announce you as gorgeous newlyweds, I will be with you every step of the way. Advising on readings and rituals to give your ceremony that little extra pizzazz!

If there are family members you want to bring into the ceremony, the oldest or youngest generations then let’s do it, I love it when couples involve others in rituals, it helps everyone to feel involved.

Whatever your dream ceremony, it will be written by me, dreamt of, and driven by you. My role is to make your dream ceremony come true, saying “I do” in a way dreamt only by you.

Renewal of Vows

Southern Spain is the perfect place for a vow renewal. Whether you want a beach ceremony or a more traditional Finca or Hacienda, there are so many beautiful venues to choose from.

Vow renewals happen for many reasons:

You may want to do it over again because you didn’t quite have your perfect day first time around
You’ve both grown, changed and have more to say to each other
You may have been through challenging times
This time you want your children and family involved

Whatever your reason, with me as your Celebrant, I will take time to get to know you and your story, only then will I start to write. I write romantic ceremonies filled with love, encapsulating your personalities and little quirks you so love about one another.

I’ll write the perfect ceremony for you. It’s your day, it’s your story and it’s all about your love for on another, what could be more beautiful!

As a funeral Celebrant working in Spain, I’m used to working with families that may have been separated not only by the seas, but by time.

Bereavement is a difficult time, and planning a funeral for someone who lives in another country can seem overwhelming, but I’ll be there to assist you in creating a beautiful end of life celebration for your loved-one.

A goodbye which encapsulates their personality, their beliefs whether they be secular, religious or spiritual, one which celebrates their life and all of its achievements.

Funerals happen quickly in Spain, usually within 24-48 hours, which is daunting when you are used to 2-3 weeks as in the UK. You do not however have to have your funeral service at the same time as the cremation.

You can ask the Insurance company to retain the Celebrant’s fee for a future date giving you time to arrange travel and a beautifully unique funeral service with me.

Funerals are different in Spain so I offer a service more aligned to that of the UK. However, each is unique and written specifically for each family. My services will not be all sadness and sorrow, I am sure your loved-one would not want them to be.

Yes, they are sad, and there will definitely be tears, but there will also be laughter and those moments where you say Oh yes, I had forgotten that!

Not only will I spend time getting to know the story of your loved-one, write the service, and produce an order of service, but, I can source music and arrange for this to be played on the day if the facilities are available.

I offer a service whereby I not only compose, write and deliver your loved-one’s service, but then attend the cremation itself, alongside the funeral director saying a last few words as your loved-one starts their onward journey.

Service recordings available upon request.

Why choose Wendy for your funeral?

I became a funeral celebrant because I’ve had personal experience of a funeral not being what was expected, that of my mother. I was so disappointed, and have now made it my mission to ensure that does’t happen to you. My promise to you is I’ll write a service you will be proud of, the perfect goodbye for your loved-one and I’ll be there to support you every step of the way.

“Thank you so much, you are so lovely and you do an amazing job. I’m so glad it was you who put my grandad to rest. I will never forget you”. Amanda

Funeral | 11/29/2019 | Spain

Thank you so much for the lovely service and the recording. That has meant so much to me as I can send it to those who could not attend the funeral. It was a lovely service and I was amazed at how you managed to capture his personality without knowing him. Everyone was really impressed. Thank you very much.
