Ali Hamilton
The Life and Soul Celebrant
NNEB, BA (Hons), MA, Dip. F.C.

I'm a people person!  I've always worked in people centred professions, first as an NNEB Nursery Nurse, followed by a long career in

careers advice and teaching.

After working for a number of years as a

Weddings and Events manager for the National Trust,

I decided the time was right for me to branch out and put my organisational skills to even better use.

 

Born and brought up in Liverpool, I am outgoing, friendly and warm, with a love of all things vintage. 

I love my cats, caravan and a bit of crochet when I have the time!

 

I bring my many years' experience and creative skillset

to every event I craft with you.

Ali MA grad with Dad.jpg

Losing my Dad really brought home to me the importance of having the right person to help with the funeral service. I felt that the best person to share his life was someone who really got to know him and understood who he was.   His commemoration was warm, funny and personal, and left us feeling that we had given him a 'good send-off'.

 

This was the point where I decided to retrain for a new career as a Celebrant.  I wanted to help people create fitting, personal tributes for their loved ones, to support them through difficult times and to improve people's experiences of funerals.

We live in a world of endless possibilities, of choice and opportunities to leave our mark, so why not allow me to help you make your impact personalised and unique?

My Fair Price Policy means that you won't pay any extra for Ceremonies held out of office hours, weekends or Bank Holidays. 

 

Just like me, my pricing structure is clear, straightforward and transparent.

Always affordable.

Turning a Vision into Reality

Let's focus on you.  What do you want to say?

I'm here to turn your vision into a beautifully bespoke, carefully crafted ceremony with you or your loved one right at the heart.

There is no "right way " or "wrong way" of doing things, just your way.

The one thing that runs through every single ceremony I perform is love. 

Love does indeed make the world go round!!

The beauty of using a fully qualified and professionally accredited Civil Celebrant is knowing that you are safely entrusting your Ceremony to a fully trained, considerate and conscientious person, creating a memory which will last a lifetime. 

 

Full of your life story and reflecting who you are,

you can be confident that every single detail of your Ceremony will be perfect!

 

I will meet with you in person (I am Covid-secure with PPE and social distancing practices)  to make sure that I have everything I need to create a masterpiece Ceremony just for you.  If you would rather Skype or Zoom, or just an old fashioned phone call, we can do that, too!

I have invested heavily in my professional training and I am proud to hold the Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy, and I will be starting the Diploma in Naming and Couples (often referred to as the Diploma in Wedding Ceremonies) shortly,  the highest and only RQF (Recognised Qualifications Framework) Celebrancy qualifications in the UK.

I  have a full, current DBS certificate.

I am committed to providing a quality service at an affordable price. 

My Fair Price Policy means you don't get charged more for having

Ceremony at a time to suit you.
