About Me

I started my Celebrant journey back in 2014 when I trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.

Since then I have been trusted by Funeral Directors along with personal family requests to provide a ceremony that is unique to that person.

I was born in Ipswich and remaining living in the town with my Husband and our Children.

I am often asked at family visits “what made you become a celebrant Donna”? 

Like you now, I have sadly experienced the loss of family members, I have experienced the hurt and grief that comes with bereavement and this inspired me to help others.  To help family and friends pay tribute and say goodbye to their loved ones with the compassion and dignity in which they deserve along with in keeping with their faiths, wishes and beliefs. In a world with such diversity this is reflected in the services that I officiate, we our all unique so I enjoy creating an individual service.

I am frequently asked “Donna your job is so sad, how do you do it”? 

I would be lying if I said that it doesn’t contain sadness, but its a wonderful feeling to help celebrate a life, to help make a difficult day a little more bearable for those left behind and I feel very grateful to have met some wonderful people and shared some amazing stories.

It really is a privilege to celebrate and remember a life.
