Celebrate in a memorable way

One of the most exciting events in a family’s life is the arrival of a new baby and many of us want to celebrate the occasion in a memorable and special way.

With an independent celebrant a Naming Ceremony can also be a wonderful opportunity to welcome an adopted child or stepchildren into your family.

I design and create unique Naming Ceremonies to suit your values, beliefs and wishes, providing an ideal opportunity for you to publicly proclaim your commitment to nurture and care for your child and to declare your hopes and aspirations for their future in the way you choose.

Naming Ceremonies...

...are not just for children however. For adults who have transitioned or changed their name for some other reason, this may be the perfect way for you to tell those closest to you that from that point on you'd like to be known by your new chosen name and your preferred pronouns.

A Naming Ceremony can mark this significant step in your life, leaving behind the old and looking forward to a more comfortable, confident, authentic future. It is a wonderful way to celebrate the ‘new you’ with your loved ones.

About me

I am an Independent Celebrant based in Suffolk. I live in Sudbury, with my husband. I have two beautiful daughters and three delightful grandsons. I enjoy reading, walking, cycling, open canoeing and entertaining friends and family.

I love planning holidays and celebration events.
Having been made redundant after over 25 years of working in Human Resources, Training and Employee Development, I had the opportunity to try something new.

The role of a Celebrant was something I had been thinking about for some time. Whilst experiencing the loss of several close family members, I very much appreciated the support, understanding and freedom of choice provided by the Independent Celebrants we met.

Witnessing a beautiful and romantic Vow Renewal ceremony clinched it. After concluding that the aspects of my previous job I loved the most were meeting and helping people and organising things, I decided this was the role for me.

My Packages

One of the greatest joys of creating an independent celebrant-led ceremony is that almost anything goes. People often ask questions such as:

  • Can we choose to have our ceremony in an alternative location, in our garden, a park or a forest? On a beach, by a stream or up a mountain?

  • Can we include religious, faith-based and cross-cultural traditions?

  • Can we have children and pets as part of our ceremony?

  • Can we write our own vows?

  • Can we incorporate elements such as handfasting, unity candles, wine sharing, jumping the broom or family blending?

The answer to all of these questions is: YES!

I will discuss your wish list with you and do whatever is possible to make it happen. We can combine different types of ceremony and work together to make this the occasion of dreams.........the only limit is your imagination!
