Hello and welcome. Whether you are here to begin the joyous process of arranging your humanist wedding or indeed to arrange a humanist funeral for a much-loved relative, companion or friend, rest assured, I will do everything I can to help.
You don’t need me to tell you that the process of arranging a wedding or a funeral can be fraught – I suspect you’re aware of that – but this site is dedicated to removing as much of the stress from your shoulders as is humanly possible.
Arranging a funeral is stressful and time-consuming and there are often tensions surrounding what sort of service to provide. A family executor or close friend has the difficult job of bridging the gap between the desires of the living while at the same time respecting the wishes of the person who has died. If you have never done this sort of thing before I will help you by taking you through the stages of the ceremony, step by step.
And for those who are looking to plan their wedding, exactly the same applies: I’m here to listen, help and to facilitate.
I am determined to make the arranging of the funeral or the wedding as painless as possible and I want you to feel confident that you have chosen a person who will deliver for you and who cares deeply about detail. If you look at my Testimonial page you will see what other families have said about me, and this might help you feel you can trust me. (The comments are genuine and unedited.)
If you decide you do want me to be your Minister (and you have a date in mind for the ceremony), then please telephone me in the first instance to see if I am available? If I am unavailable I will gladly recommend a colleague of mine to you and put you in touch.
Please call me on either 07932 888737 or on 0207 274 1799. I can also be reached by email at [email protected]

Thank you for your time – I hope to hear from you in due course.
