My Ceremonies

As a professional celebrant, all of my ceremonies, be they with sadness following death, or with happiness of a celebration, are written from the heart, bespoke to YOU and delivered with passion and sparkle.

It’s important to me to ensure you are cared for in every way. I can reassure you of my quality, professionalism, respect and compassion, attention to detail, fun and laughter when it’s needed and above all a caring approach.

For a happy occasion such as a wedding, commitment or naming ceremony, the sky is the limit – we have endless choices to be able to create a beautiful and precious ceremony. It can be wherever you like, whenever you like, built to make your ideas and dreams come to life.

Your service can be traditional, spiritual, religious or non religious, humanist, themed, wacky or a mixture of everything… anything goes and I’ll create it especially for you. 

We will work closely together along the way. I’ll listen intently to your story and wishes to ensure I create exactly the right tone and style for you. So let me show you how I can help make YOUR ceremony the best.

Tracy was wonderful on the day and managed us sensitively and professionally throughout the preparations. Although she had never met the family before, she was able to articulate Dad’s character and life beautifully. No hesitation in recommending.

I would have no reservation in recommending Tracy as a celebrant for your funeral. She is smart, well spoken and easy to communicate with. She made the whole process easy and I cant thank her enough for helping us at a difficult time at very short notice. Good luck for the future Tracy. Regards Nigel

I would have no hesitation in recommending Tracey from precious-ceremonies. She was the celebrant for my dad’s funeral service and was both sensitive & professional in her handling. It really was a lovely send off. Guests asked if she knew him, as the Eulogy was so good. How she wrote so accurately from our grief stricken babbling amazed me. She caught all the detail and captured his essence perfectly. We were all really pleased.

Tracey was so nice and helpful whilst helping me to arrange the order of service for my mums funeral. She kept in touch and made sure that everything was as mum had wanted. On the day of the funeral she was so kind and made everyone feel that she had known mum personally as she conducted the funeral. All I can say is if you ever need a celebrant, Tracey is the person that I would recommend

Thank you so much for your efforts yesterday. The day under the circumstances couldn’t have gone smoother and we gave our mum the best send off possible. Your professionalism and handling of the process was first class and we were so glad to have you at the helm. Once again a big thank you on behalf of my dad and the rest of the family

Tracey performed a beautiful ceremony for my grandad on Tuesday and was both professional and personal in her approach to the service. It made it so much more special to find out that we are very local to each other, it’s a small world. Keep up the fantastic work!!!!

Attending a funeral with Covid restrictions in place has been very difficult, and Tracey made the service touching, beautiful, and relevant to the lovely lady we were saying goodbye to. She come over as caring and sincere, and genuinely wants to do her very best to help the day go smoothly. I would highly recommend her services, and hope that the next time we meet may be a much happier occasion.

I recently attended a funeral that Tracey officiated at. She was exactly what was needed on the day – personal, compassionate, eloquent and sincere. My friend who booked Tracey also told me she found her so comforting at a very sad time in her life. Tracey went to the house and spent time with her and the family to ensure she collated all the right information for the eulogy which was beautiful. I highly recommend you speak to Tracey if you require someone to officiate at any type of event as I believe she will not let you down.
