Joanne D Benson of Caritas Ceremonies is an independent celebrant conducting ceremonies across County Durham and surrounding areas.
I live in Peterlee, County Durham and will be happy to conduct ceremonies across the region. I have attended professional training with The UK College of Celebrants.
After thirty years in the NHS as a Nurse, Health Visitor and Community Health Specialist, I bring with me a wealth of experience of working within the public, private and voluntary sectors and most importantly – family. You can be assured of a professional service delivered in a supportive, sensitive and meaningful way.
I will work closely with you to ensure your ceremony reflects you, your beliefs and what is important to you.
I will support you through the process of finding the appropriate words, music and symbols that will reflect who you are and what you want to express.
I will help you structure the ceremony so it flows in a meaningful way to you.
I will do all that I can to ensure your ceremony is calm and respectful and I will coordinate the contributions of other people.
I am flexible and can help you create a ceremony which is entirely personal to you or one which has some traditional elements.
