Sharon Kent

I became a Humanist Celebrant so I could make a difference and provide meaningful and memorable non-religious ceremonies e.g. weddings; partnerships; baby namings; adoptions; funerals; memorials; even renewal of vows. I listen to your ideas, needs and expectations and together we arrange a ceremony tailored to suit your needs. You are the focus of my professional and individual attention at all times.

Each of the ceremonies I conduct is unique, created especially for the people involved and based on shared human values with no dependency on religion or superstition. What’s important to me, as it is to you, is the occasion and the person or people being celebrated or commemorated. My commitment is to ensure that your day is enhanced by special memories of a bespoke, personalised ceremony.

I am here to work with you, make suggestions, give you the benefit of my experience and to help you plan your ceremony according to your wishes.

For all Ceremonies, I cover the following areas of Yorkshire: York, Selby, Leeds, Harrogate, Hull. However, for Baby Namings and Weddings I am prepared to travel further afield and have in the past travelled as far as Eastbourne on the South Coast and to a Caribbean island!

There is no substitute for speaking to someone in person – if you would like to discuss your ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information or just a friendly chat regarding the possibilities for your day.

Throughout my website you will be able to find out all about the Ceremonies that I offer as an accredited Celebrant Member of the British Humanist Association.

Humanism is the view that we can make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values and that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We choose to take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.

Most of us want to mark important events in our lives and to commemorate people we have loved when they die. For those of us with no religious belief it’s important that we can mark these occasions with honesty, warmth and affection, using words and music that are personal and appropriate to the lives and the people involved.
