Capturing the spirit

After 15 years of working in the voluntary sector and 12 years of managing third sector services throughout North Yorkshire, I achieved my dream of training as a Celebrant following the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy from my former employer. I am now a fully trained and certified Independent Celebrant and a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I guess my desire to become an independent celebrant was a natural progression from my former role where my skills as a listener and ‘befriender’ were my strengths and where coordination, punctuality and organisation were a necessity.

My love of the English language and natural ability to tell a story provide a firm foundation for me to deliver a service which is both unique and personal.

With ‘The Celebrant’ I can assure you your service is in safe hands. Your service will be tailor made to suit your requirements. It may be as formal or informal as you choose and may be non-religious or include religious elements such as prayers or hymns. I can also assist you with music and readings that you, a family member or friend will read out to your congregation. Together we will make this a day that you and your loved ones will never forget.

I predominantly work in the Scarborough, Ryedale, Whitby and Bridlington area - I do travel further however you may be asked to contribute to expenses.
