Wedding & Civil Partnership and Funeral Ceremonies


Although I am originally a Falkirk Bairn (brought up in Stenhousemuir), I live in Quarrier's Village, on the border of Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, with my husband Martin, and our two children. As well as being a celebrant, I am also the Humanist Chaplain at the University of Strathclyde, and a schools visitor. I am also an Explorer Scout Leader, and help out at Johnstone Pipe Band. Before having children, I was a professional actor, a journalist and did my general nursing training. Since having children, I do a lot of public speaking, Burns Suppers, and a wee bit of stand up. Gets me out of the house.

Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies

I love spending time with my wedding couples, because when I write their ceremonies, I want their personalities to shine right through. A wedding ceremony should be personal to each couple, and it should fit them-it should be romantic, exciting, funny, emotional-all of those things, as long as it suits them. A wedding ceremony should be comfortable. And perfect. I do feel that being part of a couple's marriage ceremony is a privilege, no matter where we are, whether it is in a hotel, on a beach, in a living room or round a bonfire, in the sunshine or in the rain. Or the snow. Or in a loch. When a couple messages the day after their wedding, and says that their ceremony was the favourite part of their day, I know I have done my job right.

Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies

Naming ceremonies are always a joy, whether welcoming a new baby to the family, or as part of a wedding ceremony.

Funeral Ceremonies

Being a funeral celebrant is the most rewarding job I have ever done. I genuinely enjoy helping families through a difficult time, and, making the final goodbye to their loved ones as good as it possibly can be-a personal, sincere and dignified celebration of life.
