‘About Kate’

A lifelong humanist, it was attending a beautifully written and moving wedding ceremony held in a tipi in Yorkshire twelve years ago that prompted me to make the decision to train as a celebrant myself.  I trained as a celebrant some years ago, and have conducted dozens of weddings, partnerships and vow renewals for all sorts of people in all manner of places, and I’ve loved every one.

As a schoolteacher in a past life, I am adept at holding the attention of a gathering.  Additionally, as a practising registered Counsellor and Therapist, I am very used to calming nerves!

I am also a member of the small team of trainers at Humanists UK who continue to train those who are hoping to join our network of accredited celebrants to the highest of standards.



‘Peace of Mind’

I hold full public liability insurance, and, as a professional and national organisation, Humanists UK have a rigorous training programme and robust complaints procedure.

Happily, I have never had less than a top-level 5* rating for any of my ceremonies – have a look at some of the testimonials left by happy couples over the years!  You can be confident that I will do my absolute utmost to ensure that your wedding ceremony is everything you are hoping for – I will never be far away if you have a query or need some advice, or need to make changes in the ceremony at any stage.

­­­­W­­­­­hat I can promise is that you are in safe hands.
