Hello! I’m Liz
Working with you to bring a fresh approach to creating a personal and unique ceremony that is filled with love, laughter and heartfelt sentiments, and I believe creating something uplifting and memorable can only be done by spending time with you and getting to know you. Choosing to work with a Celebrant opens up so many opportunities for you to have exactly what you want, whether you are celebrating your relationship or saying goodbye, and I would love to help.
My Approach & Values
As many of us have, I have experienced many highs and lows in life, the lows have made me stronger and equipped to support you through life’s challenges, empathising but also recognising that your needs are as unique as the loved ones that you may have lost.
Before becoming an independent Celebrant I worked in social care and social inclusion for many years. My main speciality is person centred practice and my aim is to work with you to ensure that you have full choice and control and that your service or ceremony is the right one for you or your loved one.
I value working with all kinds of people, whatever your background or lifestyle choices, believing that difference enriches and brings value to our lives.
Building relationships and compatibility are important to creating the perfect service or ceremony and I offer as standard a first no obligation meeting, in person, on the phone or by Skype which gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and for you to decide whether you would like to work with me.
The main thing to remember is that it is your ceremony so let’s make it about you.

"I honestly am lost for words and that doesn’t happen often! You made the whole room laugh & cry. You’ve really touched me and Decon with your kindness and care. You made our night. I don’t know what to say. But I really hope to work with you in future. And I honestly wish you the best life possible. "
Lisa & Decon Davies – Vow Renewal Testimonial
"Thank you Liz, we cannot express our deep gratitude to you. You listened to our stories of Dad through our tears. You created such a beautiful service, reflecting on our words, his personality, love for his family, warmth and his humour shone through in how you spoke of him. We laughed we cried. But mostly we felt proud that we sent him off with truth, respect, and dignity. Much love to you, from all our family."
Karen Welsh – Funeral Testimonial
"Liz Thompson, conducted our marriage (and my mum’s memorial). An amazing celebrant who personalises any service she conducts, from birth, through life’s events, to death. I would want no-one else overseeing it. Higher than highly recommend xxx"
