Back To Basics

As it's a new year and a new decade I thought it'd be helpful to go back to basics for all the new visitors to my website! Here is some info about humanist ceremonies and about me.

I have a list of Frequently Asked Questions on my website too and you are always welcome to contact me with your queries.




What is a humanist ceremony?

It is a non-religious ceremony that enables you to celebrate love, life and milestones however and wherever you feel is meaningful for you.


What is a humanist celebrant?

A humanist celebrant is someone who is trained and accredited by Humanists UK to write and lead a humanist ceremony. The training is award-winning and rigorous. Humanist celebrants are part of a network of celebrants who all must commit to peer reviews, continuous professional development and the Humanists UK code of conduct.


Where can I have a humanist ceremony?

Anywhere! Currently, humanist ceremonies are not legally recognised in England which means that you do not need to hold your ceremony in a licensed venue.


Where are you based?

I am based in Leeds but I cover Yorkshire and beyond.


What do you love most about being a celebrant?

Helping couples and families to tell their stories and celebrate with their nearest and dearest. I love that each ceremony is so different and personal.


Is being a celebrant your sole job?

Being a celebrant is my main job and I now also offer support with wedding planning. I am also a petsitter.


Do you lead funerals?

I was very honoured to have led two funerals last year for friends' grandparents. I will be taking part in the Humanists UK funeral training later this year.


What do the badges at the foot of your website mean?
