Lisa Lister

Unique ceremonies for all occasions

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Lisa Lister and I’m a fully qualified, independent celebrant;  providing professional ceremonies of the highest quality, to celebrate all major life events. I offer completely bespoke, individually written and personally delivered ceremonies to suit all requirements. I work in both the UK and France; spending the winter months in Lancashire and all summer in South West France.

If you decide to work with me to create your ceremony, we can design your event to be unique and totally personal to you; meaningfully reflecting your beliefs, values and wishes. All ceremonies can be held at any venue of your choice, at any time, on any day. You can choose the music, readings and poems. You can include as much or as little religious content as you wish. And we can be as creative as you like, the only limit is your own imagination!

The one thing that all my ceremonies have in common is that they are always delivered in a relaxed and informal style and always include a smattering of humour!

ALL my clients to date  have been 100% delighted with their ceremonies – but don’t take my word for it. Nothing speaks louder than REAL reviews form REAL clients….

Please check out some of my featured ceremonies below to read what my wonderful 2018 clients have had to say about my services.…

Photos, descriptions and testimonials; they’re all here!

Chateau la Durantie

Lisa, from the word go you were ON.IT. We had no idea what to expect …so the flexibility you offered was a real eye opener. I’m pretty sure if I had said I wanted to ride down the aisle on an elephant you would have taken it completely in your stride!

Renewal of Vows Ceremonies

Commitment Ceremonies

Civil Partnership Celebrations

Naming Ceremonies

Funeral Services

Celebration of Life Ceremonies

Memorial Services

As your celebrant, I’ll work with you to ensure your celebration is one which will be remembered for its uniqueness, its sincerity and its true reflection of your values; a highly personal occasion for yourselves, your family and friends. No two ceremonies are ever the same and I work closely with clients to ensure that each ceremony is tailor-made to their requirements. Some clients have very clear ideas about what they want, others start with a blank page. Whatever your starting point, please get in touch to discuss how I can help you create a truly unique occasion.

Trained by Civil Ceremonies Ltd, I am qualified to the highest possible standard and hold two NOCN Level 3 Diplomas in Celebrancy.

Please do take a look at the different sections of my website. If you have any questions about any of my services, please drop me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help you create a truly bespoke, meaningful and unique ceremony to mark your special occasion.
