Kristina Neville

Independent Civil Celebrant

Rituals of life are the most important moments in our lives. I would love to help you to create the beautiful ceremony you are wishing for.



I have always cared for and been truly interested in people, so after achieving a BA Honours degree in German and Russian from the University of Bristol, I joined British Airways as cabin crew so I could meet people from all over the world!
After attending my grandfather's funeral, I felt incredibly disappointed that his brave and caring life had not been rightfully portrayed and touchingly celebrated, I decided to become a celebrant and help people create the resplendent ceremony they deserve. I trained to be a celebrant with Peter Headington at Celebrant Trainings Ltd. I live with my husband and two children in Gloucestershire.

I believe in the significance and meaning of these rituals in our lives.
The relationship and connection we develop together is fundamental to creating the best ceremony for you.  

Holding Hands in Nature


I have always just loved weddings, the air of anticipation, the stunning clothes, the beautiful flowers and the sense of something magical about to happen. I will help you have the day you wish for. I will listen to your stories and write the best ceremony for you. I can help you write your vows and will fully support you on your day. Please contact me for our initial free consultation to see if I am the right celebrant for you.

We will welcome your baby into your family with this warm and joyous first ritual in your baby's life. At our initial free consultation we can discuss your wishes and ideas which may include words from family members and friends of future hopes for your child, poetry, readings, music and a symbolic moment such as planting a tree, commissioning a piece of art or writing a poem.

Funerals and Celebrations of Life

I would like to help you to create a beautiful ceremony to celebrate the precious life you wish to honour. Together we can compose a meaningful ritual for your family. I will listen to all of your stories and memories and write a fitting ceremony so you will feel you have done the best for your loved one and will feel comforted by it's memory. I will be there to support you and your family during the preparations and on the day.

"By helping us put together a celebration that was really him you showed how much you took the time to understand a grieving family."
