Claire Bradford (She/her)

Claire came to celebrancy from a varied career path that included being an English teacher, working for the Church of England and a long spell as a life coach. These experiences, coupled with writing for magazines and newspapers, having her own radio show and running a networking group, gave her lots of skill ‘ingredients’ and, when she found out that celebrancy was a thing, she realised it was the just the recipe she’d been looking for!
An award-winning wedding and funeral celebrant, and co-director of the Celebrants Collective, she recently wrote and produced its two flagship celebrant training courses.
In her spare time you can usually find her in the garden or on the sofa with a book and a big cup of tea!
