Civil Celebrant West Midlands

As an independent civil celebrant I create ceremonies that are individually written and planned to meet your needs.

I am happy to liaise with your wedding planner or your Funeral Director so that between us, you can have the ceremony that you want.

With over 25 years of experience of dealing with people in a confidential and sensitive manner and I am a trained, professional independent civil celebrant.

I want to help you have a special, memorable day - whatever your needs. Its your day, so have it your way! As an independent celebrant I am not constrained by the limitations which are in place with the local registrar. Ceremonies can be held in non-licensed premises and at a venue of your choice, the only limitation is your imagination!

I believe in listening to you and giving you the option to choose what you want, whatever kind of ceremony you want, whether is it a traditional one or one that is more unique creative.

I am a graduate of the UK College of Celebrancy having completed training in Funerals, Weddings, Baby Naming and other ceremonies. I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and the Association of Independent Celebrants.

I opened for business in 2010 and work mainly in the West Midlands although happily travel to client destinations.

My West Midlands Civil Celebrant services currently cover the following areas, but are not limited to Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Dudley, Edgbaston, Hagley, Halesowen, Harbourne, Kidderminster, Kingswinford, Solihull, Stourbridge, Walsall, West Bromwich, Wolverhampton and Wombourne.

Give me a call and let's talk.

Weddings & Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows, Wedding Blessings and Hand Fasting. Working together we can create your own personal wedding – unique to you both. It can be traditional or something completely different.

Baby Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is an ideal way of celebrating the birth of a new baby or to welcome a child into the family. Every naming ceremony is unique, offering flexibility, and can be seen as an alternative to a traditional christening.


A Civil Funeral is defined as a funeral, which is driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family, not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral.
