In response to the coronavirus pandemic, whilst the responsibility for welfare lies solely with us the individual Celebrant, guidelines have been provided offering a coherent approach to help protect, not only the health and welfare of the bereaved people we serve, but also fellow professionals, our own families and friends, wider society and ourselves. It is our duty to support the NHS and society by continuing to help to flatten the curve of the spread of Covid-19, as well as ensuring we take proportionate measures to protect outselves and, when available, to have our vaccination.


As we all know, the situation we face continues to be dynamic and we must heed the ongoing updates by our Government. As reported by the Prime Minister, the current Lockdown Lifting Summary:


Step 1 - from 8 March
Funeral attendees remains at 30
Wakes and Weddings attendees up to 6
Step 2 - from 12 April
Funeral attendees remains at 30
Wakes and Weddings rises to 15
Step 3 - from 17 May
Funeral attendees remains at 30
Wakes and Weddings rises to 30
Step 4 - from 21 June
Funerals, Wakes and Weddings have unlimited numbers of attendees.....hurrah


With the continued need currently for social distancing I will continue to conduct family meetings remotely, by phone, Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp, email, by whatever remote means is appropriate. As the Lockdown steps change, so will my ability to meet you face to face.  Please note that currently there are no hymn books or song sheets in the chapels and singing is not allowed.  


Wedding ceremonies are affected across the UK and legal registrations. Please check with Government guidance and local authorities as appropriate.  The wedding ceremony performed by a Celebrant is separate to the legal registration performed through the Register Office and registrar, sometimes referred to by the local authority as a celebrant, which can be confusing, but they are Registrars. See the lockdown lifting details above.



You could have a small number of attendees at a funeral and where available webcasting for those not attending to observe. A recording may be able to take place of a real time ceremony and a video and audio copy provided as agreed with the funeral director and family. There could be a direct cremation with a memorial ceremony at a future date. 


My promise is to continue to do what I can to help and support you during these challenging times. I will endeavour to keep this area updated but call me or email  me if you need to.


Hello, I'm Nuala and I am a Celebrant and I cover Sussex, Kent and London, but happy to discuss if you need support somewhere else.

I provide non-religious or semi-religious Weddings, Funerals and Baby Naming ceremonies, and other services, ie after dinner speaking, hosting events and officiating special celebrations.

In our world today many people are developing their own ideas, values and beliefs about life, religion and philosophy and whilst traditional ceremonies will continue to play an integral part in community life, more people are seeking alternative approaches. I aim to reflect the wishes and desires of those seeking support and it is my privilege to bring to individuals and families an alternative but yet still a respectful and memorable occasion. 


In addition to my work as a Celebrant, I am also a Master Practitioner in NLP and Hypnosis and TimeLine Therapy.
