If you’ve arrived at this page you must be looking to commit yourself to your partner; renew your vows; celebrate the arrival of your child; or mark another important occasion with a personal, meaningful, non-religious ceremony…

Would you like to work with a celebrant with 8 years experience; who is friendly and down to earth, as well as professional and who’s very proud to be able to share lots of positive feedback from previous happy clients?

Then look no further! The service I offer might be just what you’re looking for – as your celebrant I will help you celebrate your day, your way.


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 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.


I LOVE my work as a Humanist Wedding and Naming Celebrant – offering people in Leeds and the surrounding Yorkshire area the opportunity to celebrate important occasions and milestones in their lives, in exactly the manner and style they wish is fabulous.

Being a celebrant brings me a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction.  It’s a real privilege and an exciting journey to embark upon with each new client.


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 and Naming pages, where you’ll also find lots of feedback and photos from previous clients, to give you a real flavour of what I do.

My services go beyond Weddings and the most regularly conducted Naming ceremonies of 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, transgender naming ceremonies, coming of age, milestone birthdays, recovery from ill health and any other reason to be cheerful!


I am, of course, an LGBTQ+ ally.  Love is love – marriage equality and the desire to celebrate every family is a total no brainer for me and I’m delighted to be a member of  www.lgbtqequalityweddings.com to support their #youdontneedtoaskhere campaign.


If this sounds just what you’re looking for, get in touch in any of the usual ways: telephone, email and text; or message my FB page – Humanist Ceremonies Leeds – with any initial enquiries.
