Hello, my name is Poppy and it is lovely to meet you.
I am an independent celebrant specialising in creating amazing ceremonies for babies, children and young people, with a focus on love, family and life. Whether it is a beautifully crafted naming ceremony, a meaningful adoption celebration or a funeral service for a baby or child, I would be honoured to be your celebrant for your special day.
I believe every child deserves to be celebrated.
I would love to work with you and your family to craft a bespoke and unique ceremony, as individual as you. Whatever the occasion, I will be by your side to make an unforgettable ceremony and make memories that you and your family will cherish for years to come.

Let's Work Together
I love working with families, and it is an honour to be part of your journey. Every family is special and I can craft for you an incredibly personal ceremony which tells your story from a place of love and truth. I am based in London, but will happily travel across the UK for your celebration or ceremony. It is always such a pleasure to work with families, and an honour to tell their stories, and I would be delighted to tell yours too.
Your journey is unique and I want to tell your story.
I can assist with events planning and coordination, and have packages to suit every celebration size and budget. So whether it is an intimate ceremony in your garden, or a large celebration in a venue; wherever you are in the UK, I would love to work with you to create your special day.

A little about me
My name is Poppy, and I live Walthamstow, London with my amazing family. I am a friendly and kind celebrant who loves poetry, children's books and exploring the city. There is nothing better than a cup of tea and making connections with amazing people. I adore children and babies, and I am at my happiest when around little humans.
My home team
I am a mum of three wonderful children, cheeky Felix who is four, Carys our smiley one year old, and Daphne who was sadly stillborn three years ago. They are the lights of my life and I couldn’t be prouder to be their mum.
A career full of creativity
I am a certified celebrant with qualifications in naming and funeral ceremonies. I also hold level 2 qualifications in End of Life Care and Mental Health First Aid. I started my working life as a stage manager in theatre, working with some amazing companies and venues across the country, before branching out into children's theatre, circus, music and higher education. I've now found my calling as a celebrant, and I love my job and the wonderful people I get to meet along the way.
