What about me?
Born in the small market town of Neath in South Wales where I went on to attend a local Grammar School I made the move to Somerset in the 1980’s and I love it here. I live in a lovely old farmhouse with my partner Charlene, George the cat and Diesel my springer spaniel. Most of my life has been spent in delivering memorable experiences to people through my work. I’m passionate about helping people achieve what they would like to happen at their occasion by using my experience gained over the years. That is why I continually strive to find training or qualifications that give me the education, experience and tools to carry out my duties to the best of my abilities. Whether is a baby naming, marriage ceremony, funeral ceremony or disco I believe that by working together we can create something unique that reflects the individual character and style of those involved. So, if you would like to work with me to create an occasion that is truly memorable then I’d love to hear from you.
My work as a Funeral Celebrant and Bereavement minister keeps my feet firmly planted on the ground as I work with families and friends of the deceased to create a dignified, respectful and memorable send off for a loved one. with my ‘all inclusive’ approach to my ceremonies families can finally get a funeral service that they are entirely happy with. This means that they can mix the ceremony up to include favourite music, family stories, testimonials from friends, images, props and if they wish some religious or spiritual content in the form of hymns and prayers.
I have had some incredibly memorable moments thanks to the families entrusting the Final Farewell to their loved one to my care and so I thank them all for giving me the honour and privilege to conduct the ceremony.
As a registered minister I currently act as a chaplain to a local Nursing Home offering some spiritual comfort to their residents and as a result of this I have recently become a Dementia Friends Champion which allows me to go out into the community informing people better about this condition which affects so many people.
