Tamara Dickson (CCN Cert, RMHN, PTLLS)
As a professionally trained Independent Civil Celebrant and fully registered member of the CCN, I provide a professional service, which encompasses compassion, understanding and sincerity.
I create and deliver a range of ceremonies and services, which are free from the constraints that traditional ministers or humanist celebrants may adhere to. The ceremony or service may be entirely non-religious or include religious content, according to the wishes of those concerned. It may include music, songs, poetry, readings or hymns. During our meeting, we can discuss options and ideas, and together we will create a meaningful and bespoke service or ceremony to mark the occasion.
With a background in nursing, customer service and experience in counselling, I am aware of the importance of listening. Through my training in healthcare, together with teaching opportunities, I feel comfortable and confident in both writing and public speaking.
I was drawn to the work of a Celebrant, after the passing of my mother-in-law and a close friend. I witnessed first-hand services performed by a celebrant, which celebrated the individual and honoured their life, whilst respectfully marking their passing.
As an Independent Civil Celebrant, I get immense satisfaction from creating and delivering a ceremony or service, which reflects the individual, couple or family concerned. These include Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Baby Naming/Adoption Ceremonies, Separation Ceremonies, Funerals, Memorials, Interment or Scattering of Ashes, as well as other bespoke occasions.
I am based in Melksham and cover the Wiltshire area, parts of Somerset, Dorset and some outlying areas but I am able to travel to other venues and locations further afield. An additional charge to cover travel and possible accommodation would be considered and agreed beforehand.
Please contact me for a no obligation chat or to discuss any questions you may have.
Just some of the touching Testimonials I have received.

“Once again I would like to thank you for the outstanding quality of the service you performed for my Mum yesterday. The feedback we received after the event was universally positive, and many of the attendees stated that it was an excellent introduction to the concept of having an Independent Celebrant.
