Tina Hayward & Pip

I trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in 2009 and have been fully committed to my profession ever since.

I am Suffolk born and proud of my Suffolk roots and have a deep appreciation of nature and the countryside around me. I love animals especially cats and my little Sausage Dog, Pip.

Being part of a large farming family near Woodbridge in Suffolk, and with a family of my own, I have observed and learnt much about life. I see my Celebrant work as an extension to my life and feel deeply privileged to be part of other people’s lives at significant times in their life;

Saying our farewells to a loved one and celebrating their life

Rejoicing in a happy union

Witnessing a renewal of vows and a commitment to love

All these are very special milestones and ceremonies

As a musician, I can assist and advise with music, and with a passion for writing, I can write the Tribute/Eulogy for you.

For Wedding Ceremonies/Vow Renewal, I can write your Love Story.

What is a Celebrant?

A Celebrant is someone who can conduct a semi-religious or non-religious service.

A Celebrant acts as a conduit through whom to express your views and beliefs.

A Celebrant is understanding and supportive and will listen carefully to all requirements in order to create and structure a unique and individual service.
