Funeral Celebrant & Ceremonies of Life

If I should go tomorrow, It would never be goodbye, 
For I have left my heart with you, by Margaret Mead

Amanda-Louise Knight Ceremonies

words of dignity and love

what i do
01. Ceremonies to say goodbye

I am a qualified professional celebrant (IPC) who specialises in designing personalised celebrant led funeral ceremonies which are sincere for you as a family.

I look to retell the most important stories and capture the personalities of those that have passed.

I believe the key to a respectful funeral, full of dignity and love, is to capture a meaningful memory which embraces each and every member of the family, both old and young alike; making your goodbye to your love one special.

02. Memorials & End of Life Celebrations

I am experienced in providing ceremonies, that ensure there is the utmost respect for those that have passed as well as the understanding to create ceremonies for those more complex and sensitive situations.

I do this through listening and supporting the family with sensitivity and respect. If you so wish I can continue to support the family through a series of short-term grief counselling sessions after the funeral on an individual private basis.

03. Funerals, Cremations, Internment Of Ashes

The funerals I tend to lead are across West Somerset, Somerset and parts of Devon, but I may be able to provide funeral services further afield.

I want to ensure that all funerals I perform offer warmth, affection and capture the essence of your loved one in a caring and heartfelt way. I am keen to ensure that I am sensitive to everyone’s needs including those of any children present.  

Whilst a funeral can be held at either a graveside or a crematorium, I am able to work with you in any setting and work closely with your funeral director or via online direct funerals.

04. Mourning The Loss

As an independent professional in bereavement counselling I can support you and provide this service regardless of whether I am your celebrant or not. Usually these sessions commence after the funeral.

After an initial assessment of your needs, I can either help you for an agreed set of weekly sessions or will signpost you onto another service.

The primary aim of our sessions together would be to help you come to terms with the loss of your loved one and the impact that may cause.    

Could we be the perfect fit?

As a UK funeral celebrant I offer a free no obligation 30 minute consultation.

Memorials & End of Life Celebrations

There are so many reasons to hold memorials and end of life ceremonies. These can be just for the immediate family, for a large number of guests or specific one for work colleagues.

I am an expert conducting these longer ceremonies giving, the guests more time to celebrate or reflect on the departed’s life.

I would ensure that the service is individual and offer both a traditional format or one that is unconventional whichever you wish.

Services can be conducted in a time to suit you whether that be a few months after the funeral or even longer.  

My ceremonies encompass respect, love, and memories to cherish.

I also have experience of working with organisations to provide workplace memorial ceremonies. These can be held at any time or type of venue.    

These kind of workplace memorials can help staff to understand their feelings and offer support at the loss of a colleague or client with an opportunity to grieve and to celebrate their life.

Prices Are Dependant On The Type And Choice Of Ceremony But Typically Include:

  • Research And Preparation
  • Creation Of A Custom Made Ceremony
  • Telephone Or One-On-One Updates
  • Officiate The Service

How our clients feel about us

At a time when as a family we were in the depths of sorrow at our loss Amanda - Louise arrived. It was as if the weight of trying to make sure that my husbands life was remembered and honoured was completely understood by Amanda and we all relaxed. Our memories were brought to life in the service and I found it such a comfort. We all felt totally safe opening our hearts to her and were so impressed in the skills she has and empathy she has to understand how we all felt.

Claire Woodland

Amanda is a loyal, empathetic and conscientious person. She gives 100% to any task assigned to her, and will execute each task with professionalism and dedication.

Lesley Scott

An enthusiastic and vibrant person who will bring laughter to any celebration

Staff Sgt Lisa Leighton

I have had the great pleasure of working with Amanda-Louise on several occasions and she is such a fun, charismatic Celebrant that would enhance any celebration, be it happy or sad. She’s a delight to work with and beautifully creative. Using her great life skills and experience, she relishes in crafting a fabulous ceremony that will be so personal to you, whether you’re looking for serious or fun, you won’t be disappointed.

Tracey Schoales

A friend recommended Amanda-Louise to be the celebrant at my mother’s funeral. Like most people in my position I found the prospect of organising not only a funeral but my own mother’s funeral during Covid19 times. But Amanda-Louise was absolutely amazing. She was so caring, compassionate, understanding and most of all friendly. She listened intently to the type of funeral service we required (I didn’t know there were so many options), made notes, asked questions to get to know not only us but my mother too – consequently offered suggestions. The result was amazing if you could say a funeral was perfect – this was genuinely it. I can’t put into words how grateful I am to Amanda – Louise’s professional and compassionate approach to a very emotional event. Whatever the event if I could employ Amanda-Louise again I would have no hesitation whatsoever.

Julie Parker

I have now directed three funeral ceremonies with Amanda-Louise, who has a gift for personalising a ceremony with such enthusiasm, compassion and grace, always with fine attention to detail

Mark Kingston-James

I cannot praise Amanda enough. Clearly professional in her role she brought direction and comfort in equal measure, and yes, some humour to a very special Celebration of Life. A separate session with the young children attending gave them a role in the proceedings and an understanding of the meaning of the meeting. I recommend her services for any celebration, happy or sad.

Dudley Price

Beautiful service for my late husband John. Amanda did him proud, she took the service with feeling and respect. Thank you Amanda.‍

Pippa Buckner

Amanda had the difficult job of creating a beautiful ceremony that brought together many different parts of our lost loved ones life. She rung up and spoke to each sibling to get stories and details needed for the ceremony. I never felt more at ease knowing she was the celebrant for the funeral. What she came up with was beautiful and she treated my dad with the upmost respect and honour. She made a bad day manageable and it was simply beautiful.


Hollie Coles

Amanda-Louise was from the outset very friendly, caring and thoughtful. Such a good service provided to us in our time of grief and the service was more than we than we could have expected. I feel like I have know her for years and that if I ever need to talk she will be there for me.
