Once upon a time, all ceremonies were traditional. No matter what background you came from, the majority of ceremonies contained religious passages and prayers. But now the 21st Century has caused a stir and modernised ceremonies forever and this is where the work of a Celebrant comes in.
You may be wondering what a Celebrant does? Well most of them conduct ceremonies for weddings, funerals, renewal of vows, baby naming ceremonies and civil partnership services.
With Celebrants becoming even more popular, I’m told my ceremonies are standing out from others and I’ve taken the South by storm! I’ve simply found there is a huge demand for elegant and romantic ceremonies which I offer and endeavour to conduct with complete calmness. My services are unique and tailored to each client. I work closely with couples and families giving them complete flexibility to choose graceful, comforting or romantic words for any desired ceremony.
With church ceremonies strictly religious and registrar ceremonies completely the opposite, I try to find the right balance for clients on their day. If clients want to include religious or spiritual readings or maybe just graceful passages, I’m happy to incorporate the client’s choices and am there to guide them every step of the way.
An example of this was when I was contacted in by a lovely lady who had seen my website and was enquiring about a naming ceremony. She gave me a couple of possible dates in August and two preferred venues and was waiting for confirmation from each. I already had bookings in August but the suggested dates she mentioned were free as both were Sundays. Both her chosen venues were very fine country hotels, one in Gloucestershire and one in Worcestershire. We exchanged a number of emails and tried to meet but my racing around the country to visit clients and conduct weddings didn't fit in with her busy days filled with all the responsibilities of parenting. We eventually managed to chat by phone where I gathered and was offered some wonderfully heartening and enlightening details.
They also left this comment on the Guest Book page of my website:
The work of a celebrant is greatly rewarding and I would encourage all families who yearn for a public celebration to welcome their child or children into their family to consider a celebrant led ceremony.

Kicking off Business Mums Week we have some great news that we now have a new franchisee of our 'Warwickshire' Branch, Stacie Calder.
Stacie has a great story that has made her get to where she is now, running her own Networking Mummies Branch alongside her own growing business.
Back in May 2011 Laura made the big decision to leave Bournemouth and Joanne and the Dorset branch to return back to Warwick to be closer to family. Stacie had been a friend of Laura's ever since Primary school and on moving back to Warwick and after staying in touch they spoke again via emails. Laura had decided the best way to grow Networking Mummies was to open a 'Warwickshire' Branch and as Stacie was on maternity leave she encouraged Stacie to come along to the first meeting that was held in Cheeky Chimps in Waarwick.
Stacie came along and so did a few others! Within those other people was a lady called Sharon Bott and she had been recommended to come along to the meeting by two people within our Hampshire Branch! Sharon is a leading team leader within the Forever Business and herself and Stacie set up a date in the diary on the day to meet again and have a chat. Now nearly 18 months down the line Stacie has succesfully grown her own business and has also signed someone in her team within the Dorset Branch!
Stacie is very happy to now be the new owner of the Warwickshire branch, so Laura can concentrate on the other parts of Networking Mummies.
Laura quotes 'I am so pleased that Stacie is the new owner of this branch. I started it 18 months ago and she has always helped me out and been by my side anyway so I know it's going to a great person who will grow the branch'
