Why a Celebrant?




As we go through life, from the very beginning to the very end, we like to mark our milestones... 


How, why,  and where we choose to do so, are personal decisions.

A celebrant gives you the freedom to have a ceremony that reflects those choices.  

One ceremony does not fit all!


As your celebrant, I can offer you   flexibility when deciding

a location, content, time, style and participants, for your chosen ceremony.

 I will work closely with you, to create and deliver a  custom-made ceremony  which is both relevant and fitting, for you and your loved ones.

A Ceremony of Life....A Life-Centred Ceremony

When someone we love dies, we cherish the memories of happy times. As your funeral celebrant, I will write and deliver, an original Funeral, Memorial or Celebration of Life Ceremony, centred around the memories of your loved one...

Your Wedding...Your Way...



Wedding locations are no longer limited to registered buildings or public halls.  You can choose your favourite beach,  castle,  tearoom, museum, cinema, library, pub, boat or even your own back garden to tie the knot!

As your wedding celebrant I can be flexible to your choice of venue, so let your imagination take you somewhere special.

Whatever and wherever you decide to celebrate your special day, I offer a personalised, professional service, tailor-made to your requirements, to help you celebrate the way you choose to.

I will construct and deliver an original handwritten, wedding ceremony.  especially for you, and as unique as you are.

your wedding...your way








If you are reading this, the chances are, you are starting to plan your wedding day!

Organising your wedding is possibly one of the biggest life events you will ever have to arrange.

There are now more choices involved in planning a wedding than ever before.

Deciding the style, theme and tone of your ceremony, are all important. I will be working alongside you to ensure that your ceremony has exactly the right feel, and the right mood, to suit you.

Your wedding ceremony can be as traditional or contemporary as you choose. There are, of course the ever popular elements of exchanging rings, and that all- important kiss, but I can introduce alternative elements to fit your personal style and wishes









Handfasting ritual









'Wedding Ceremonies led by a celebrant in Scotland still require the couple to attend the registry office for the legal part of the marriage. 

Shetland: A Wedding Destination

Scotland has long been the destination for a 'get away' wedding,( think Gretna Green!) but with its spectacular scenery and accessability by ferry and plane, why not come that bit further and tie the knot in Shetland?


As your Shetland Celebrant I will create and conduct a bespoke ceremony, centred around you, ensuring your

ShetlandWedding is 

'Braaly Lichtsome'

(shetland dialect meaning pretty good fun!)


If you live off island, but are thinking about a Shetland Wedding Ceremony, feel free to contact me with any queries you may have regarding transport, accommodation or venues.
