Bespoke Ceremonies – Your day, celebrated your way.

Personal, non-religious wedding, funeral & naming ceremonies in Leeds, Scarborough and the surrounding Yorkshire area.

If you’re looking for a down to earth celebrant, with a wealth of experience and nine years of positive client feedback, the service I offer might be just what you’re looking for.

I work closely with each of my clients, to create ceremonies that mark important life events – happy or sad – in a way that’s authentic, personal, meaningful and inclusive.

QUALITY ASSURANCE:

I’m trained, accredited and insured by © Humanists UK 2017, as part of their HUMANIST CEREMONIES™ network.

This guarantees that you will get the quality services of a professional, who’s undertaken a rigorous training and assessment programme; is required to participate in regular CPD activities every year and is observed conducting each of their ceremony types, once every three years, by a colleague.

In addition it means I’m part of a local network of colleagues, who support each other and step in if things take a turn for the unexpected!

I also choose to limit the number of ceremonies I do each year; I’m much more interested in quality, than I am in quantity!

 

LOVE WHAT YOU DO & SO DO IT WELL:

I LOVE my work as a Celebrant – it’s a privilege to offer people the opportunity to mark important occasions and milestones in their lives, in exactly the manner and style they wish.

 

MORE INFO:

For an insight into what you can expect if you choose me as your celebrant, please have a look at the information on my WEDDING , NAMING and Funerals pages, where you’ll also find lots of feedback and photos from previous clients – it’ll give you a real flavour of what I do.

You can find pricing information HERE.

 

My services go beyond Weddings, Funerals and Naming ceremonies for children and include – but are not limited to – writing scripts for and leading on all your milestone celebrations; for example renewal of vows, adoption ceremonies, blending of families, trans & non-binary re-naming ceremonies, coming of age, milestone birthdays, recovery from ill health.

 

EQUALITY & INCLUSION:

Equality and inclusion are a total no brainer for me.

I welcome enquiries from everyone who’s of age! Your sexuality, gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability, cultural or religious heritage should not be a barrier to you marking an important event in exactly the way you want to.

My aim is always to treat people as I would like to be treated – with respect.  I read, listen, discuss and constantly reflect in order to expand my knowledge, reflect on my priviledge and increase my understanding of different lived experiences, in order to improve my service to people.   I continually work to be a better ally.

I’m proud to be a founding member of  www.lgbtqequalityweddings.com supporting their #YouDontNeedToAskHere campaign.

I’m also very pleased to be an alumni of the Trans Ally Training provided by Stonewall; supporting their #comeoutfortransequality campaign and their work towards acceptance without exception.

 

GET IN TOUCH:

If this sounds like what you’re looking for in a celebrant, get in touch in any of the usual ways: telephone, email and text with any initial enquiries.

I look forward to meeting you.
