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.
"Thank you so so much for making our day so perfect. Without a doubt the ceremony was the highlight of the whole day for us and it seems to be for most of our guests too! The day felt like something out of a movie and we are still floating..."

"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."
