Email: hello@barbaragubbins.co
Website: www.barbaragubbins.co
Address: Hadrian Park, Wallsend
Training: Heart-led Ceremonies Training
Info: Born in the North-East, Barbara lives in North Tyneside and spent most of her career in marketing before moving into the voluntary sector 20 years ago. In a voluntary capacity, she was a magistrate for 16 years and has held a number of roles as a trustee, school governor and mentor of young people at risk. In June 2017, she was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her contribution to voluntary services.
Barbara was first motivated to become a celebrant when she attended her youngest son’s wedding in New Zealand where the celebrant brought such warmth, peace and joy to the day and brought two families together. She also understands that losing a loved one is the most devastating event in someone’s life, and the importance of creating a ceremony that can be related to friends, family and community members who want to say their final farewells.

Mobile: 07533 723174
Email: ownyourday@yahoo.com
Website: www.ownyourdayceremonies.com
Address: 19 Side Cliff Road, Sunderland, SR6 9JP
Training: General Register Office of England & Wales
Info: So my story...back when I got married you only had the option of a church or the register office, how times have changed! And Baby Naming ceremonies, well, they did not exist at all. Having worked as a Registrar for over 18 years I have performed hundreds of marriage, renewal of vows and naming ceremonies, I felt the time had come to branch out and move away from the legalities of a civil ceremony and offer couples a fresh approach to their ceremonies.
I can write and conduct your ceremony in the location of your choice, inside or outside and at the time of day you want, with the vows you choose. So if you are looking for a relaxed and personal ceremony please get in touch for a chat and maybe a slice of cake.
