About Me

My name is Fiona and I am a Family and Funeral Celebrant working in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

I live in Leighton Buzzard with my husband, 2 cats, tropical fish and a variety of garden birds who visit to be fed.  I have 2 lovely grown up sons, who live nearby.


I left school and went to Catering College and then joined the Women’s Royal Air Force.

I then married and worked as a wife and a mother bringing up my 2 boys – a challenge in itself. I also have a daughter who was born with Downs Syndrome who sadly passed away at 4 months old.

I worked at a play group and became a childminder. I then worked in Children’s Services for 13 years and I spent the the last 18 months working as part of a well-being team at my workplace, speaking to colleagues on a daily basis and offering a listening ear, support or advice during the pandemic.

My hobbies include baking, darts, cross-stitch, quizzes and genealogy.

I love listening and talking to people in that order. I am interested in people, learning about their lives which is why I enjoy genealogy. I love history and finding out what my ancestors did and how they lived their lives. I also love tigers and unicorns.

I have been a local preacher in the Methodist church for the last 10 years and enjoyed creating services within the church. I particularly liked taking Family Services which gave me more opportunity to do something a bit different. I was asked to create a couple of funeral ceremonies for some family members and as these were well received,  I decided it was time to take a step further.

That step was to become a civil celebrant. To create unique and bespoke ceremonies which centred around the person who’s life event it is.

Although involved in the church, I have worked with people of many faiths as well as those with none. I enjoy discussions and learning about other people’s views. This has made me open-minded and am happy to work with whatever you want.
