Info: For the past 10 years, I have had the joyful opportunity to create and conduct civil, spiritual, interfaith and same-sex ceremonies. These contain the traditions, rituals and customs that are meaningful to both of you and reflect who you are as a couple. I have a deep respect and openness to different personal beliefs and cultures, and love to weave these different elements together into a harmonious ceremony. I speak fluent French and Italian and can do completely bilingual ceremonies in those languages Over the years, on request, I have also included elements of many other languages, including Spanish, German, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Czech, Russian, Hebrew – and am happy to expand to the language of your choice (as long as I have some help with the pronunciation). As a trained soprano, professional storyteller and writer, and an experienced actor, I am able to use these skills to give you a unique and memorable ceremony.
For memorial services and celebrations of life, I am told that the words that I use after meeting with and corresponding by email and on the phone with family members, spouses and friends, make it seems as if I had known the deceased personally.

Info: When I am not officiating at a wedding, handfasting, funeral, naming or other ceremony, I have the privilege of being a companion for the dying (Soul Midwife) and supporting the bereaved in my voluntary role with Hospice at Home in Cumbria. My love of the Lake District and passion for my three Springer Spaniels, has prompted me to include pet funerals within my resume. Recent engagement in a two-year study programme, has further developed my listening skills and understanding of different religions, spirituality, atheism and cultural diversity. Throughout our lives there are many ‘Rites of Passage’, opportunities for reflection and celebration. Miller Williams said, “Ritual is important to us as human beings, it ties us to our histories and traditions”. Every ceremony is a unique opportunity to celebrate life, to express our thoughts, feelings and emotions. Be assured, the bespoke and personalised ceremony we create together, will truly reflect your preferences, wishes and aspirations, initiating a lasting and beautiful memory.
Whatever the occasion, I will listen, and encourage you to follow your heart.

Info: With a strong interest in myth, drama and music as a young person, I developed a passion for ritual quite early on in life. Later I became a teacher, further developing my imagination and communication skills, and then trained with the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation, as a minister - for people of all faiths and no faith. I now find myself well qualified through the combination of these interests, life skills and life experience to be a celebrant, and I offer ceremony that may or may not include religious content but that is always personal and creative. I believe that careful and thoughtful scripting and choreography are essential to the creation of memorable and meaningful ceremonies. Ceremony serves to confirm endings and beginnings, to bring resolution, and to announce renewed hope within the cycles of our lives, and It is my great pleasure to offer this work.

Address: Croft House, Glassonby, Nr. Penrith, Cumbria CA10 1DU
Info: For as long as I can remember, I have always felt a sense of respect for ceremonies and rituals which honour the human spirit. Having officiated across three countries, for more than twenty years, I am skilled at bringing purpose and intention to each ceremony.
My role is to seamlessly create a sacred space, and I do so practically and intuitively using a sense of craft, pace and purpose. I am there to hold the energy, and to offer structure. At the heart of all my work, I ask myself “What does this ceremony mean?”
I have a deep love of family, friendship, nature and music, and often draw on these for inspiration in my writing. I’m the author of more than a dozen books, including The Blessingway: creating a beautiful blessingway ceremony, and Baby Names Inspired by Mother Nature.
I am available throughout Cumbria and northern Lancashire for the following ceremonies: weddings, same-sex unions, handfastings, vow renewals, blessingways, baby/adult namings, wise crone ceremony, divorce healing, menarche (New to the Moon), miscarriage memorial or healing, housewarmings, funerals and memorials.
Services Provided: Funeral Services, Wedding Celebrations, Renewal of Vows, Civil Partnership Ceremonies, Baby Namings, Family Ceremonies
