Cornwall Celebrants

About us

William and Megan

Professionalism

Hello, we are Megan and William, a husband and wife team. We are fully qualified, independent, family Celebrants and both hold the highest qualifications available in Funeral Celebrancy and Couples and Naming Celebrancy.

When we trained with Civil Ceremonies Ltd we not only had to demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the traditions, role and issues associated with creating and performing ceremonies but we had to demonstrate that we could deliver a poignant, meaningful and original ceremony that had been crafted to meet the needs of the client. We have been awarded National College Open Network Level 3 Diplomas in Naming and Couples Celebrancy and in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF) which are regulated by Ofqual.

We are both members of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC). The AOIC provide us with support and advice and through them we get professional liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance; most importantly they require a high standard of professionalism and service from their members so you can be assured of hiring the best.

We have adopted the Funeral Celebrant Accord which defines the attributes and skills required of an excellent Funeral Celebrant. You can download a copy of the Funeral Celebrant Accord by clicking on the ‘Other’ Menu above.

As members of the Natural Death Centre we are committed to work with you to ensure that your loved one has the very best funeral possible- you can read more about the work of the Natural Death Centre on their website.

At the beginning of 2019 we set up Just Perfect Ceremonies and we offer a full range of family ceremonies. We create and deliver personal, appropriate ceremonies that capture the emotions and love perfectly.

Whether you are a couple looking for a wedding ceremony that is full of joy and reflects your values and beliefs, or need a Funeral arranging for your loved one, we will work with you to create and hold a ceremony that is just perfect.

Megan

Hi, I’m Megan, married to William – it’s our second marriage for us both so we understand some of the ups and downs that come with long term commitment to each other. I’m proud Mum to Becky, who is herself a Celebrant, she lives and works as a Sacred Celebrant in Cornwall (@willowceremonies).

I enjoy photography (strictly amateur!), gardening and cookery (we make the best lasagne – and some pretty good ice cream!).

Camelford is now our home having previously lived in Shropshire where we began our celebrancy business and indeed we regularly return there and the nearby counties to perform ceremonies.

I have been a nurse for over 30 years and nursing people through some of the worst (and sometimes best) times of their lives has been a huge privilege. As a qualified Celebrant I get to use all my experience to help people mark their rites of passage with joy, kindness, compassion – and sometimes fun!

The power of a ceremony to mark the significant moments and rites of passage that we all live through during our lives – both joyful and sad cannot be under estimated – and for me, being able to create a ceremony that is both personal and hugely meaningful for everyone involved is what I find most rewarding. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and learning more about your story and how we can help you mark your special moments.

William

Hi, I’m William, married to Megan. I’ve had a very diverse career including being a teacher, a driving instructor, a sub postmaster and a wedding caterer. My passions include running, football, cooking (we also make the best pizzas) and computer programming.

It is a privilege to be a Celebrant at a critical moment in other people’s lives. People coming together in moments of great happiness and great sadness is always positive and a triumph of the human spirit. Constructing the just perfect ceremony to capture the mood, the drama of the occasion, whilst making it completely personal, is both challenging and incredibly rewarding. That’s why I’m a Celebrant.

A team of celebrants

Megan and William

So what do you call a group of Celebrants; a carillion, a confidence, a calling…? We decided to keep it simple and just say what we are – a team. We are lucky as a couple in that we work well together, and Just Perfect Ceremonies is very much a team effort.

The advantage to you of us working as a close-knit team is that we will both be able to bring ideas and suggestions to the table when creating your ceremony and we are also twice as likely as other celebrants to have availability on your chosen dates, whilst also able to offer cover at short notice. – Two for the price of one you might say!
