“I worked as a vet for ten years, but have found the move to humanist celebrant very rewarding. I take funerals, memorials and ceremonies to mark the interment of ashes, and work with families to create a personal and meaningful service, that celebrates the life of the person who has died. I cover Huddersfield, Wakefield, Pontefract and Barnsley, though am happy to travel further if necessary. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of my work.”

“The work I do as a Humanist celebrant is wonderful; being able to help people have a truly personal and meaningful wedding ceremony, or celebration to welcome their child is a real privilege and an exciting process to go through with each new couple or family. Each ceremony is written from scratch in close liaison with the client, meaning that every one of them is entirely unique.
