About Louise Jopling (nee Peardon)



I have worked as a Funeral Celebrant for six years.

I regularly work across Wiltshire, Berkshire, Dorset and Hampshire (and I’m happy to travel further afield).  I look forward to working with you to create a unique and personal funeral for your loved one.


You really are special at what you do Louise

– we were very lucky to have had you.”  [Email – 2015]


I originally trained and worked as a registered nurse in a variety of settings before making the move to the voluntary sector and a senior role with a medical charity.  My role with the charity was diverse and what I loved most were the opportunities to listen to people’s stories and being in a position to support so many ordinary, inspirational people, to make a difference.

I trained as a celebrant because I was inspired by the personal touch so evident in humanist funerals.  I wished to ensure that all families had the opportunity to remember their loved ones in such a meaningful way.

“My memories of Mum’s celebration of her life that you led last July are still so vivid and comforting.  You have a very special gift and you have touched so many lives.  You make sure that every life matters no matter how large or small the achievements of that particular individual.  For that, I can’t thank you enough.” [Email – 2016] 

“We would like to thank-you so much for the tremendous job that you did on Tuesday.  The service was perfect.  Your calm but in control approach was much appreciated.  Many friends commented on how good the ceremony was because of you.  It was all done so beautifully and it couldn’t have been bettered.  It flowed so well and came together perfectly.” [Email – 2016]

I initially trained and worked with the Humanist Society Scotland from 2010, before relocating to Wiltshire in 2013.  I am part of a local group of colleagues (Wessex Celebrants) who support each other and are able to provide a reliable and professional service.  Between us we can ensure that there is always a humanist celebrant available.


Once again, thank you so much for making a difficult day such a positive one.”  [Email – 2015]
