"When it comes to loss and grief there are no rules; there is no ‘normal’ way to feel or react.  There is no ‘normal’ time limit on your grief.  There is no ‘correct’ way to memorialise the deceased.  The way you remember, recognise and/or celebrate the life of a loved one is entirely down to you. As The Alternative Celebrant, my aim is to help you celebrate, commemorate & remember the person you have lost in a way that reflects your memories of them and helps you find a footing on the path leading you onwards.

"Having started out as a Funeral Arranger in 2009 and gaining my diploma as a Funeral Celebrant in 2014 I have in that time helped many families to reflect and celebrate the life of their loved ones with dignity and love. Creating and delivering unique, bespoke, and truly personal services enables families and friends to say farewell with a fitting and meaningful ceremony. Working together with families I ensure that their needs and expectations are met and that the occasion is how the family wishes it to be, reflecting their values and beliefs.".

"I am trained and accredited by Humanists UK to conduct non religious funerals that truly reflect the life of the deceased, and to help families to say goodbye in the way in which they would like to do so. I also offer a service in advance of death to help families and individuals to think about the kind of send off and ceremony that they would like to plan".
