I am a professionally trained Funeral Celebrant based in Somerset. I have 8 years experience of creating and conducting bespoke funeral services.
Somerset, Wiltshire, North Devon and Dorset although I am a funeral celebrant who is more than happy to travel further afield.
An appointment will be arranged for us to meet at a place and time that is convenient. It’s important to me that we establish a warm and friendly relationship.
We will establish your requirements for the ceremony. I can also take this time to gently explain the whole funeral process to you as this can be a bit daunting at times.
When you are completely happy with everything that we are doing I will create a truly personal and bespoke ceremony led by a warm, friendly and caring funeral celebrant
Our journey to honouring and celebrating the life of your loved one then begins.
Being a hand to hold and trust in your time of need.
Writing a personalised bespoke funeral ceremony to say goodbye.
Helping you grieve and celebrate a beautiful life.
Derren is an amazing and caring person who did a wonderful service for my Mum and my Dad. Derren also did the scattering of the ashes for Mum and Dad at Yeovil Town football club which was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, you really made us, as a family feel at ease and you were with me every step of the way. And for that l thank you x
Derren did a fantastic job of conducting the service that my dad deserved. It was well-written and the support and sympathy given was just amazing. I could not have asked for a better Celebrant to represent my dad. For that I will be forever thankful. Amazing lady, amazing service and I would recommend to anyone. The presentation folder given at the end was just beautiful and something I will cherish forever. Thank you so much Derren. xxx
Derren is absolutely amazing and at the same time professional. She handled our Dads funeral (10th February) with such thoughtfulness. Would recommend her in a second.
Dearest Derren "Blossom Ceremonies' please accept a truly heartfelt thankyou for the most beautiful service that you conducted at Yeovil Cemetery for my step dad Laurence Langley known to many as Mr Shirabell. You helped us so much and the manner in which you presented every part of the service was very comforting and professional. My mother and I also were very grateful for the presentation folder that you presented to us capturing every precious moment of the service. We as a family would highly recommend your service.
Dear Derren I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service for my mother Yvonne Francis yesterday. In these difficult times it was sad that we could not give my Mum the send off that we had hoped for, but you made the service so special, it was full of our personal memories of Mum, with the music that she loved and your special touch was something my mum would have loved so much!! Thanks to you we did Mum proud you are an Angel. Lots of love Jenny and all of the Francis Family.
Derren, Just wanted to say another BIG THANK YOU for yesterday. It was a lovely service conducted by a very professional and compassionate lady. Thankyou and take care. Ian xxx
Dear Derren, What can I say? You are amazing we loved the service so much, it was personal, sad and fun all added together. Without you the service would not have been the same. You are a lovely caring lady and I will truly never forget what you did for us yesterday. Love to you and thank you once more for making my Mums farewell so special for us. Jenny, Chris and all the Francis family.
Dear Derren, many thanks for the professional and caring service you conducted for us last week. Given your attention to detail and the quality of your service you should be charging more! Thank you for helping us through a difficult time.
I am writing a week or so after the funeral, on 24th July, of Joan, to thank you for your part in making it such a good celebration of Joan’s life.When we spoke early on, you had not had, at that stage, been given much information about Joan’s life story, her personality, and interests, but by the time of the funeral, you had spoken to many people and you were able to integrate it all, weaving a vivid picture of Joan.
We couldn't have wished for anyone other than Derren to conduct our mums' funeral. Taking the time to listen and getting to know all about her life. Thank you Derren from all the family for providing a thoroughly professional and sensitive service.
Derren was a fantastic celebrant at my mother's funeral. She took the time to get to know her and really listened and created the perfect sense of who my mother. She was so sensitive and her words comforting, I can't rate her highly enough
I just wanted to say thank you again for yesterday. The ceremony seemed to really fit, I have been to funerals before and not really recognised the person described. You have a gift, which not many of us would. I will always recommend you to anyone having to arrange a funeral.
We want to sincerely thank you for making our Grandfather's funeral service such a unique, personal and meaningful one. You held us all together and even though you never met our PopPop, it felt like you knew him so well and the things you said were so wonderful and kind, it really made it such a lovely service, despite the sadness of it all.
Let me create a funeral service for your loved one.
