Sometimes we get asked to recommend celebrants for civil weddings, funerals and christenings … we can heartily recommend

Wendy and Howard Martin create, and officiate at, those precious milestones in life. Wendy, as a Family Civil Celebrant can officiate at your – Wedding Ceremony, Civil Partnerships/Marriage, Vow Renewal, Commitment, and Baby / Child Naming Ceremony. Howard as a experienced Funeral Civil Celebrant can officiate at a Funeral Ceremony and Memorials.

They offer a personalized service, to help you to create the ceremony (semi-religious or Humanist) you desire and that reflects the couple/person or child being honoured. This may be a couple marrying or renewing their vows. Or welcoming a child into this world and naming him/her, or saying your last “good-byes” to a loved one.
