About Me

Welcome to Severn Ceremonies. My name is Lynda and I am an independent celebrant.

Some time ago I read an article about a person who became a celebrant so they could conduct their closest friend’s wedding celebration. After doing more research into the role, I thought “I can do this, this is perfect for me, and what a privilege to be part of such a momentous occasion in someone’s life!”. So, after undergoing the training, here I am!

My background is, most recently, in nursing, but previously I ran a pub/restaurant, along with my husband, for 13 years.

The pub was central to the community and became renowned for the varied theme nights, events and celebrations (including weddings) designed and organised by me. My emphasis was always on humour, entertainment and making sure everyone had a good time. These events proved very successful and people would come from far and wide to join in the fun.

Being creative and having a positive personality and a good sense of humour all played a part in being successful in both my role as a publican and as a nurse. As a celebrant I can bring these same qualities to your celebration.

From the offset, we will work together to construct your tailormade celebration, incorporating all the elements of your personalities and your story.

I can create for you a ceremony like no other. A ceremony that is fresh, original and that really captures the essence of you as a couple or family.
