My name is Andrea Keenan and I am an independent celebrant. I live in Annan, a town beside the Solway coast in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. It’s a very beautiful place to live and I’m grateful that I get to work and live in this area. Nearby are coastal roads, historical landmarks and breath-taking scenery, fit for even the most regal ceremony. The wedding town of Gretna Green is just a few miles down the road of course, but there really is no shortage of stunning locations and venues for any occasion.
My ceremonies, whether they be naming’s, weddings or funerals, are entirely person centred and completely bespoke.
Before qualifying as a celebrant, I was working in a primary school, but my career path has varied enormously. From potato harvesting, factory work, bar work and waitressing, shop work and a fitness instructor.
Did I mention that I am also a classically trained actress? Oh, and I also sing in a local band. So, lots of different life experiences then!
I’m married to my best friend and between us we have four daughters, two granddaughters and a grandson. Life is busy sometimes but it’s also magical.
I love to travel, lift heavy weights in the gym, read, garden, drink coffee and eat scones and snuggle up with the kids.
My belief is that every person should have exactly what they want out of a ceremony. If they want to get married on a mountain top- okay, let’s do it!
If someone’s last journey is into a magical forest in a shroud scattered with petals, then we should make it happen.
We only get one life. Let’s celebrate it.
