About Sylvie Summer

Sylvie Summer

Ceremonies meet our deepest need to mark important life events; I will ensure that you have a ceremony that suits your background, lifestyle and culture.

I conduct funerals and memorial services.

I came to be a celebrant through personal experiences of my own Humanist wedding and then the funeral of my partner.

During a long and varied career, I’ve worked in community development, teaching, counselling and health promotion, but so far, nothing beats the reward and satisfaction I get from my work as a Humanist celebrant!

I will create your ceremony, whether it’s a funeral or memorial service from the experiences and stories you tell me about.  My meeting with you is crucial for listening to your thoughts, ideas and feelings; only then do I begin to write a draft ceremony. My job is to turn all the information you tell me into a unique and personal ceremony for you. My approach is to work alongside you and support you to have a truly memorable occasion.

I can advise on poems, music and readings and suggest ideas for making a ceremony more interesting and help you and your guests to take part.

I live near Rugby, Warwickshire, and prefer to work within a 20 mile radius in Coventry, Warwickshire or nearby areas.
