About Beverley

I am a trained and certified Funeral Celebrant and a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I am mum to three grown up children and have three grandchildren. I live on the Somerset Coast and love walking the dog on the beach.

Prior to having my children I was a Police Officer. Until I became a Celebrant I had worked in the voluntary sector across Somerset and Bristol for 22 years, as a volunteer, frontline worker and manager, supporting supporting individuals and families through difficult times in their lives. So when the opportunity arose to train as a Celebrant I knew it was right for me. I had attended several Celebrant led ceremonies and really appreciated how personalised and uplifting these services were.

I am also available for weddings, vow renewals and naming ceremonies.
