And Everything In-Between...
Tel: 07718 584575
I was born in Liverpool and lucky enough to meet my wonderful, supportive husband and partner some 37 years ago. We moved to the Wirral in 1990 and have had many happy years on the peninsular bringing up our two children.
Working with a diverse mix of people along the way – I love meeting new people – I spent most of my career in management and training. But my journey to becoming a celebrant was always bubbling away in the background.
I have a natural affinity with people and have always been fascinated with the stories they have to tell. I’ve also always been the person called upon when an event needs organising or a speech needs writing.
In 2017, I sadly lost my Dad. I proudly spoke at his funeral and afterwards couldn’t quite shake the feeling that perhaps my role on that day had actually been something that had been staring me in the face for a long time ... that my vocation was as a celebrant.
I trained with UKSOC and used my own experiences both personal and in business to become a Celebrant.
Call me on 07718 584575, I’d Love To Hear From You.....
I now know I have found my forte in life, and feel honoured to work with families on their ceremonies. I love the role I play and the ability to do something worthwhile and rewarding, making a difference to families at key moments in their lives.
I have a natural warmth and will very quickly build rapport and put you at ease. I will give you the comfort of knowing that I will deliver a ceremony that tells the story that you want, the way you want it. I will listen to your stories, your struggles and your hopes and dreams and weave them into a ceremony that is unique and personal to you and your family.
Whatever the ceremony, I will work with you in a way that suits you. I will be as hands on or hands off as you need, and using my experience, offer advice and suggestions. Whether you know exactly what you want, or you don’t know where to start, I am here to guide you and prepare a memorable ceremony. I pride myself on my attention to detail and will ensure that your ceremony is delivered professionally but with a sense of intimacy and care.
So that’s me, Denise from Oaklands Celebrants. I conduct ceremonies for all the important moments in life, from the first “Hello” to the final “Goodbye” and everything in-between. I look forward to hearing your story...
