Before becoming a Humanist celebrant I worked for a publishing company, where I was Director of Publicity for almost 15 years. I took a career break after having my daughter, and I was unsure what I wanted to do next.
Then, after attending a Humanist funeral of a friend, I was blown away. I was amazed at the comfort and sense of calm that this type of ceremony brought, and I knew immediately that this was the path I wanted to take. So I took the training, and now here I am.
One of the greatest joys of being a celebrant is meeting and working with, so many wonderful people from all walks of life. I love creating warm and unique ceremonies that celebrate our lives and loves in all their Technicolour glory!
Conducting weddings is, of course, a pleasure.
What could be better than being part of such a joyous occasion? My aim is to create ceremonies that reflect each individual couple - and every couple is unique. So, it goes without saying that no two ceremonies are alike.
Most importantly, I want my couples to feel relaxed and secure in the knowledge that they are getting married in exactly the way they want to. The day is all about celebrating their love with all the people that matter most.
It’s a privilege and an honour to be part of it all.
Kirsty and I just want to say thank you for the beautiful service you gave our Dad on Friday.
Given the current social distancing restrictions there is an additional complexity in understanding the individual families you are working with. However, you were able to convey dads character and values perfectly.
Thank you again!
PS – We also loved your cape/suit jacket!

I just want to thank you very much for the time and genuine care you took to prepare and deliver Millar’s celebration and it was a celebration! I sure you must hear glowing tributes all the time, but Millar really was the person everyone in that room talked about.
Thanks again, you made a huge difference. I look forward to seeing you again when you conduct Murray's wedding. I'm delighted you able to do this for us, it means the world to us all. We feel you have become our friend and you really have helped us all through such a horrible time. You delivered so much more than a ceremony.
"I’m not sure where to start explaining how exceptional Sharon was in conducting our ceremony. We wanted someone fun, young at heart and a bit different from the norm. Well, Sharon more than exceeded these expectations! She made us feel so comfortable, encouraged us to be brave, funny and say what we really felt, we felt like she really “got us”. On the day, listening to Sharon read our story felt like a friend was telling it, she was the right amount of funny and the right amount of sweet. The ceremony was so powerful and emotional and the number of compliments we got was amazing. So many people said it was one of the best ceremonies they had been to (boredom seems to be a common complaint but it certainly wasn’t at ours!) I would recommend Sharon to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you so making our day so special, we couldn’t have imagined it being any better."
