Independent Celebrant

So, what’s a celebrant?

Celebrants have been in existence for over 40 years yet some people are still unaware of the fabulous scope we offer for that special, memorable occasion and especially for Weddings. Couples are choosing to have Celebrants as they want a ceremony that better reflects their lifestyle and beliefs and want to make their day, unique to them. I will work closely with you to ensure your hopes and dreams for your special day come to life. As an independent Celebrant I am not currently authorised to perform the legal part of your marriage. It has to be done by a registrar or authorised person to make it legally binding. Once you have secured the legal part (which does not necessarily have to be the same day, it can be before or even afterwards) I will conduct your special day anyway you want it.  No more rules or regulations! And the beauty of having a me as your Celebrant, is that you do not have to use a licensed venue, it can be anywhere you choose!

FUNERAL | 03/25/2022 | CANLEY CREMATORIUM
Tracey is utterly brilliant. Kind, caring, compassionate, thoughtful, organised and reassuring.  Not only did she capture my brother in law’s personality accurately at our first meeting, but was happy to tweak things when we recieved more tributes that we wanted included in the service. Everything was done professionally and in such a caring way, nothing was too much trouble. Little things, like a text to reassure us on the morning of the funeral, a beautiful pack which included all she had said about Colin, to the delivery of the service (amazing, delivered with such feeling and compassion) was just spot on. Could not have asked for more and feel very lucky that she was our celebrant. So many people at the wake also commented on how fantastic she was. Incidentally, but also crucially, we hadn’t met Tracey until the funeral day itself, as we live miles away, so our initial meeting was via Zoom, however Tracey immediately put us at ease and she made the whole process stress free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND❤
