About Christine

Christine Wood-9.jpg

Whatever your Ceremony, I can write a service for you that is totally bespoke, unique to you and your circumstances.  Whether it is a joyous event, a Wedding or Baby Naming or the sadness of a funeral, you will have my full concentration on your ceremony.  From visiting your family at home to discuss what is needed to the final writing and delivery of the Ceremony, I can bring many thoughtful insights, years of experience in writing and performing and my calm and empathetic manner.

For many years a teacher, and then a tour guide at one of our ancient castles, you can have confidence that I am able to address and hold the attention of any group of people.  A few years ago, having seen a celebrant led funeral, and been impressed with the quality of the service compared with others I had attended, I realised that this was something I would love to do. 

I had found my new vocation.


Living here in the beautiful South Lake District I am constantly inspired by the beauty of nature all around us and love nothing more than walking through our glorious hills and valleys. 

I currently work with families in Cumbria, North Lancashire and North Yorkshire, although I have taken services as far afield as Gloucestershire.

If you would like to talk to me about the kind of ceremony you would like, just ring and I will be happy to advise you.
