Somerset Funeral Celebrant - Blossom Ceremonies - About Me
I absolutely love the role of a Celebrant.  I have learnt so much from my clients, made many friends, heard so many wonderful life stories and lots of sad stories too but in each and every case it has been a real honour and privilege to be involved in creating a Ceremony that honours and celebrates the life that has been lived.

About Me

Originally from Bexhill on Sea in East Sussex, I now live in Ilminster, Somerset with my husband Phil, our four dogs, six cats and three rabbits……yes, I’m a bit mad on animals! And I work as a ‘Somerset Funeral Celebrant.’
Becoming a Civil Funeral Celebrant was a choice I made after experiencing the loss of twins. Feeling abandoned by ‘religion’, thoughts of why would a ‘good god’ allow something so devastating to happen to us. It set me on a different track spiritually and, with time, I found peace within myself.

My father then died in 2012; he was a real character! Being non-religious, there was no way I could have a vicar conduct his service. He always believed that God would strike him down if he ever set foot in a church. So we found a ‘Celebrant’ to conduct his ceremony.

The ceremony was both moving and personal and we came away feeling uplifted and contented that we had ‘done our Dad proud’.

I told my husband that I would love to be a Celebrant. Always encouraging of my ideas, he backed me 100%.  Research done,  I found The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.  I enrolled on their training course and I have been a Civil Funeral Celebrant since!

I love the role of a Funeral Celebrant. I  have learnt so much from my clients, made many friends, heard so many wonderful life stories and many sad stories too.

To be a Funeral Celebrant is a real honour and privilege, but also one that brings great satisfaction.

Let me create a celebration of life for your loved one.
