I believe that life is for living to its fullest and each day is a gift to be celebrated..
I'm a wife of thirty seven years (I know I can't believe it either!), mum of four wonderful children and Gigi (grandma) to three little crackers. Although I've lived in Aberdeenshire for the past thirty six years; I'm originally from Liverpool with Irish roots.
How would I describe myself? Well on a personal basis: I'm a very positive person (the glass is not only half full but I can refill it at any point!); I love to meet other people and hear their stories (does that make me nosey??); I love to travel and experience new places, things to do and things to eat; I love to laugh and being a Scouser that comes naturally to me; I don't have lots of free time but I do like to go the cinema or out for a meal and my favourite pass time is just spending time and laughing with my family and friends.
Work wise; I've a strong work ethic and I have high standards. I trained through the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, in partnership with The UK College of Celebrancy (founded by one of the first Celebrants in the UK, Terri Shanks) and I'm bound to the Fellowship’s Code of Ethics and have full Limited Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance (no worries though it won't be needed!)
I know it's crucial to have a celebrant you feel comfortable with, so I'm very happy to meet or Skype you. There'll be no hard sell just a cuppa and a chat (sorry can't do a cuppa on Skype). To drop me an email click here and we can coordinate diaries. I check and reply to all emails daily.
Am I a Humanist Celebrant?
Nope. Humanists don't believe in any religious or spiritual beings. Therefore, Humanist Celebrants can't sing hymns or say prayers during your ceremony. You may not be a churchgoer but you may have a wee prayer that you'd like said or a favourite hymn sung; I'm happy to do this. My mantra is “your ceremony; your way.”
