“We would like to give you feedback for your web site so that others seeking a professional Humanist Celebrant will be able to see first hand that your professionalism and caring nature made the whole process an easy one for us. From our first conversation, we were made to feel at ease and realised that nothing was too much trouble for you. You captured the life of our loved one perfectly and the tribute you gave was absolutely spot on. After the service, we had people asking for your details as they too want to ensure that they or their loved ones have a similar experience. We even had a comment from someone who always thought they wanted a religious service, say that your service far exceeded what they believed a Humanist service was, and as a result of attending our service, they have now changed their mind and will, when the time comes, be having a humanist service, hopefully conducted by you ! Many thanks once again, we were delighted with the service, and would definitely recommend you 100% .”

Stuart Paterson, the Celebrant

I have had the privilege of being a fully trained and accredited Humanist Celebrant in Yorkshire for over 10 years now. Over the years I have written and delivered hundreds of non-religious ceremonies throughout Yorkshire, Humberside and beyond. All of these ceremonies have been unique; focusing on the individuals’ wants, needs & requirments. Celebrations and ceremonies of the important occasions in our lives are a major part of what makes us human, whether they are at the start of that life, somewhere in the middle or at the end. When and where your ceremony takes place is entirely a matter for you. I have performed weddings in places as diverse as castles, in fields under a marquee or tepee (or just simply in a field), hotels, stately homes, on a boat, village halls, community centres, in a back garden & even a local park. All these places were appropriate for those involved. What I promise you is a unique ceremony, and together we will make your day a memorable one for all the right reasons.

Julie Kay, the Celebrant

“Thank you for the wonderful job you did with our ceremony. Your calm and relaxed approach helped to keep us calm on the day too and meant that we felt confident everything would go smoothly. We had a truly fantastic day and enjoyed every minute of it. Many people commented on how much they liked the ceremony because the words were our own; that it felt genuine and sincere.” — D & S

I’m based in York and work throughout Yorkshire, Humberside, Teesside and further afield including travel abroad if required.

The beauty of Humanist Ceremonies is that they can be held anywhere; at any venue, in your own home or at a special, beautiful place outdoors. There are no set words or rules, which means I can help you create a ceremony which is very personal and meaningful for you and your family and friends.
