Moyra Summers, the Celebrant

Hi! I’m Moyra, and I’m accredited by the British Humanist Association to deliver non-religious weddings, partnerships, namings and funeral ceremonies. I live in Euxton, near Chorley in Lancashire. I have been a Humanist for some time, and became a celebrant because I wanted to help to create sensitive and meaningful ceremonies for non-religious people. I feel very privileged to belong to a national network of celebrants trained and accredited by the BHA to write and conduct non religious ceremonies. You do not have to be a Humanist to use our services but simply prefer to have a non religious ceremony.

Having trained as a teacher, I spent many years teaching different age groups of children, my subjects being English and Drama. I spent the last two decades of my teaching career working in a special school for children with learning difficulties, where I had a responsibility for Art and Music. I am an Honours Graduate in Literature and have a wide experience and love of poetry, literature and music, all of which contribute to this work. In fact being a celebrant brings together many of the practical, organisational, social and emotional skills I’ve developed over the years. When I took early retirement I trained to become a Humanist Celebrant and I feel as though I could not have done anything which suits me better.

As a Humanist I believe that we only have one life, and it is important to make it matter. I believe that individual responsibility, social cooperation and mutual respect are life-affirming principles which give meaning and shape to our lives and through which we can build a more humane society. I am aware of the great responsibility involved in leading a wedding, naming or funeral ceremony, the importance of fulfilling the wishes of the couple, the parents or the family, and personalising the ceremony.

You are welcome to contact me to discuss any aspect of the ceremony you are interested in. For weddings and namings I am happy to work mainly in Lancashire or parts of the surrounding counties. For funerals I will work in and around Chorley, Preston, Leyland and Blackburn.
