I am a professionally trained Independent Celebrant and a member of The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I am based in Gullane and provide services in The Lothians, Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.
Civil Celebrants came to life in the 1970s in Australia as servants to the community to provide a dignified marriage ceremony to couples who felt they had been rejected by the clergy. Since then the role of the Celebrant has grown across the world to provide unique ceremonies for the important milestones in life.
I bring to the role of Celebrant over thirty five years experience of teaching Drama in secondary schools in Edinburgh and the Lothians and as a freelance tutor of drama and dance to all ages. I also bring reliability, friendliness, trustworthiness, excellent communication skills and professionalism to the role.
The content and details of your ceremony is entirely up to you. You are not tied to the ‘same size fits all’ type of ceremony conducted by many faith or civil organisations. As your Celebrant, I can help you achieve the ceremony that best reflects you and your wishes. It will be your ceremony and unique to you.
