So much to think about. So little time, that’s where I come in!

Welcome to Precious Ceremonies, my name is Tracey and I am an experienced Independant Wedding & Funeral Celebrant having officiated in over 300 ceremonies.  My aim is to deliver just that – wonderful, meaningful and quality ceremonies to celebrate a life, a new future together, a new addition to the family or any other occasion.  I have a real passion for creating your perfect day however you envisage it.

Passionate about people

I am an insured member of The Institute of Professional Celebrants and the Celebrant Circle. I also have a background in Coaching, Training, Events, Quality and Customer Engagement. I love to listen to each story and to make people happy, even when it is a less-than-happy time for them. I’m adaptable and respectful and pride myself on my quality. The great thing is, there are no rules or restrictions, so for a happy occasion, we can have the most amazing amount of fun creating or I’ll go at your pace and follow a more traditional style. 

Either way, we have a blank canvas and I’m ready to listen to your thoughts, plans and ideals. My mission is to take some of your stress away and make sure that your day is exactly as you want it to be.

My Ceremonies

As a independent 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.

Planning your ceremony

Good planning is the key to any successful ceremony.

I will work very closely with you, helping, supporting, creating and moulding everything together so you have all the elements you would desire on your special day. 
The content of the ceremony is sent to you beforehand with unlimited changes to ensure the timing is right and everything is where you want it to be.

Types of ceremonies

I’m here to help with your Funerals, Weddings, Commitment ceremonies, Naming ceremonies and more!

I can also offer bespoke mini ceremonies which are popularly weaved into your special day, such as the Warming of Wedding Rings, Handfasting, Quaich (Loving cup) ceremony, and many others – or creations of our very own to enhance the whole experience.

How a Celebrant helps?

I know how hard it can be to make decisions for any event and focus on the details. That’s why as a professional celebrant I’m here to guide you on your journey and craft your precious ceremony around your wishes and dreams. No two events are the same.  You will benefit from all my experience, creativity and most of all, caring.

Only YOU can decide what your ceremony entails, I’ll just be right beside you bringing it to life.

We were so pleased to have Tracey as the celebrant at our mum's funeral. She gave a beautiful eulogy with such a lovely mix of compassion, professionalism and humour that left us feeling uplifted at such a difficult time. We would 100% recommend Tracey - you will definitely be in safe hands!

Thank you Tracey so very much for all your help, assistance and guidance with Mum’s funeral arrangements. Helping us chose music, poems, and wording, when we didn’t know where to start. For being so calm, and reassuring us all on the day. You spoke so perfectly about Mum and conveyed how we all felt about her. It was as if you had known her too. The ceremony was moving, and a lovely celebration of Mum’s life. All skilfully presented by yourself, with feeling and emotion. Thank you for such a lovely farewell.

If you are looking for an outstanding celebrant, look no further as Tracey will not disappoint! Tracey was exceptional from the moment we asked her to be our celebrant for our wedding. She not only kept in regular and frequent contact but, amended/ edited and carefully listened to our wishes. Tracey was able to get a sense of us and truly personalised the ceremony to suit us perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding celebrant than Tracey. We will remember her fondly forever.

Precious Ceremonies worked tirelessly to create a wonderful ceremony in tribute to our Mum’s long and well lived life. Words hardly do justice to the poignant ceremony that was created and truly appreciated by our whole family. Barry & Carole Littlewood - August 2023

Thank you Tracey. Your celebration of my husbands life was beautiful, considerate and full of love and compassion. I cannot thank you enough for the support you gave me at such a terrible time. You were amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend you and had many family, colleagues and friends asking how I found you! I will be forever grateful. Take care.

We want to pay a heartfelt thank you to Tracey who delivered a beautiful service for my late father-in-law. The eulogy she gave felt so personal and she really understood the man my late father-in-law was and delivered it with such eloquence. We didn’t have hymns and, after some discussion with Tracey, she was able to suggest a couple of poems that captured my husbands father perfectly. The kindness you showed us, at such an emotional time, will be forever remembered.
