Welcome to Circle of Life Wiltshire

My name is Tamara and I am an Independent Celebrant based in Melksham, Wiltshire. I create and deliver personalised services and ceremonies to mark important milestones, such as funerals, weddings, baby naming’s and other bespoke occasions.


As a professionally trained Independent Celebrant and fully registered member of County Celebrants Network, I provide a specialised service, which encompasses compassion, understanding and sincerity.

The ceremonies and services created and delivered are free from the constraints that traditional ministers, registrars or humanist celebrants may adhere to. The ceremony or service can be entirely non-religious or include religious or spiritual content, according to the wishes of those concerned and can include music, songs, poetry, readings or hymns, chosen by you.

During our meeting, we can discuss options and ideas, and together, a meaningful and bespoke service or ceremony will be created to mark the occasion or life event. 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, alternatively you can email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

    With a background in nursing, customer service and experience in counselling, I am aware of the importance of listening. Through my work in healthcare, together with delivering facilitated teaching and training opportunities, I am adept in both writing and public speaking. I was drawn to the work of a celebrant, when I witnessed first-hand a service officiated by a funeral celebrant, which celebrated the individual and honoured their life, whilst respectfully marking their passing. As an Independent Celebrant, I get immense satisfaction from creating and delivering a ceremony or service, which reflects the individual, couple or family concerned.

  • “Dear Tamara, I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and my family a very big thank you for the wonderful ceremony last Friday. You did it beautifully and everyone commented on what a lovely speaker you are and how well you came across”
