About Me

IMG_8021_edited_edited.jpg

I'm Amanda, an Independent Celebrant who loves working with couples and families to create beautiful ceremonies with standout moments.

This passionate path for me started in 2007 when I became the owner of a florist in my hometown, Upton upon Severn, nestled at the foot of the scenic Malvern Hills. I created many bespoke designs of tributes, from wedding bouquets to arrangements for corporate events and funeral tributes. Over the years of working alongside a local funeral director, my path took a side turn, and I started to work in the funeral profession part-time along with my floristry.

I gave up the floristry in 2010 and started a full-time career in the funeral profession and have looked after many families, many have come back to me several times.

In 2017 I started my business as a celebrant, and over the years I have served many families, honing my skills in the written and spoken word and developing my experience speaking in front of an audience, directing and officiating bespoke ceremonies for their loved ones dedicated to attention to detail.

When I am not working you will find me exploring the countryside in my caravan, relaxing with my husband and dog.
I also love enjoying the creativity of others, watching a show at the theatre or visiting National Trust homes and gardens.

I retrained with The Celebrant Circle in 2024, and I take my role and profession very seriously; I am dedicated to doing the best job for everyone I work with, serving the  counties of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and the Cotswolds.

 

My warm and friendly approach and varied experience makes being a celebrant the perfect job—I hope you will love working with me!

The whole sad experience of losing a dear loved one was made so much easier because of Amanda's kind, caring and compassionate nature; this coupled with professionalism - the service delivered was exactly what my loved one would have wanted and was a wonderful tribute to her with some humour where  appropiate.  I would recommend Amanda 100%.

I can't thank Amanda enough for the understanding and compassion she showed me when arranging my husband's funeral.  She was very professional but also very human and made what was a difficult time for me very straightforward.  The service she provided at the crematorium was perfect, with her manner and the readings she had found that suited my husband's personality, everyone who attended the service said how fitting it was.

I cannot thank her enough for making the hardest day of my life more bearable.
