About Me

Hi, I am Dee, a jolly, friendly and compassionate person.  I have two gorgeous grown up married children and three amazing grandchildren.  I also have three super stepchildren who have given me another five awesome grandchildren!  I have a total passion for animals and currently I lshare my life with a cat, five leopard tortoises, two rescued pigeons and two hedgehogs.  I also volunteer at the local hedgehog rescue centre.  I have a passion for nature, the sea and our planet and all creatures that live on this wonderful earth.

I like nice things, pretty things and sparkly things (am still a little girl at heart) which is why I love a good wedding!  

As a professionally trained celebrant, I will help to create a truly personal and meaningful ceremony that is exactly as you wish it to be.

You will be able to check the ceremony content beforehand and I will present you with a souvenir script of the ceremony to keep as a lasting memento of your special day.

I have successfully completed and passed the National Qualification - NOCN Level 3 in both Funeral Celebrancy and Couples/Baby Naming Ceremonies.  In addition, I have a BA (Hons) in Humanities and have had 12 years experience working with weddings and funerals at Gloucester Cathedral.  I am also a member of the Institute of Civil Funerals.  

I have no particular religion and am happy to include religious elements such as prayers and hymns in your ceremony if required.  I studied world religions as part of my degree and can totally work with you to include your own religious beliefs and cultural traditions; I also speak Italian.

I have over 40 years experience in customer service based professions, including events management, retail sales and confidential secretarial work.  I am fun loving and always happy to dress up for your themed celebration (including arriving by motorcycle!)  If quirky is your thing, then I am your celebrant!  Spiritual and Pagan themed ceremonies are very close to my heart and I enjoy offering symbolic elements such as hand-fasting and jumping the brookstick. If traditional is your preference, I can do that too, with grace and respect.

For your peace of mind, I am first aid trained and am DBS cleared.

You can have every confidence in me to create and deliver the ceremony of your dreams.
