About Alison
Hertfordshire Wedding Celebrant.jpg

Once upon a time...

I moved to London 33 years ago, telling my family I'd be gone six months.  

I now reside in Hertfordshire and am blessed to be share my life with two strong boys

and a loyal handful of awesome friends who fill each day with love and laughter.

Following the death of my dear father in 2013, 

I was inspired to offer my voice as a funeral singer.  I felt totally at home.

I'd always used my voice to connect with people, so this seemed a natural progression.

Nancy Bowers, an extraordinary funeral arranger, recognised my potential as a Funeral Celebrant.

A year later, I'd completed my training as a Civil Celebrant and the rest, as they say ... is history.

Whilst I have a passion for celebrating life and supporting bereaved families, it now brings me equal joy to officiate weddings & family celebrations in Hertfordshire & Greater London.

​Being a Wedding Celebrant and a Funeral Celebrant is something I love in equal measure.

In love.  In Life.  In Service.
