Hi I’m Fiona. I am a fully qualified Independent Family and Funeral Celebrant in Bedfordshire, I aso create exceptional ceremonies within the counties of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

What is a ceremony led by a Celebrant?

It gives you the freedom to have a ceremony written just for you, to have the ceremony where you want, to turn your dreams into reality. A Celebrant will help you create a ceremony truly memorable and special.

Wedding celebrant ceremonies

Your perfect ceremony can be any time, any place: A hotel, the top of a hill, a barn, in a wildlife field, a wooded area, the choice is yours. Together we can make your dreams a reality. We can include elements of religion to honour your roots or non at all.

Symbolic traditions such as hand-fasting, Unity Candles, a Jar of Wishes or band warming. We can make a bespoke element just for you. (More elements can be found on the Wedding page)

Music, poems, readings, extracts can all be used and can involve family and friends. We can include themes, hobbies and interests that are important to you. The ceremony will be personal to the two of you and will create an everlasting memory for you. For more information and prices see the Wedding Page.

Naming Ceremonies / Welcoming Ceremonies

These are joyful ceremonies to welcome a new member of the family, whether a new-born baby, an older child, an adopted child or children coming together as a blended family.

The ceremony can take place anywhere with many people choosing their garden, a local beauty spot, a local hall or park. It also gives you the chance to announce your love, dedication and devotion to your new child or children.

Its the ceremony to introduce your chosen adults to care for your child. Traditionally call Godparents but now can be called Guideparents or Oddparents – whatever the term, wherever the place, the ceremony will be personal and a lasting memory for you all.

I can create a ceremony that puts the child or children at the centre and includes their wishes (If they are old enough to have a voice).
Bubbles, a wishing tree and even a water slide are some of the elements used. See Naming page for more info and prices.
