Legacy Celebrant

Your ceremony is in safe hands with Legacy.

A truly exceptional bespoke celebrant for all your family’s celebrations from wedding ceremonies to celebrations of life


As a very caring person, I  have always been fascinated by people’s journeys through life. From the paths they choose to the U-turns they make and the decisions, they make along the way. All the events that create the person they are – and ultimately lead to the point where our paths cross. My own life led me to become a bespoke celebrant for your special life events.

I became a celebrant in 2019 after the death of my beloved son, Ben. I wrote the eulogy myself, leaving the Celebrant with nothing to do. Despite this, he still managed to get things wrong which caused me a great deal of distress.

You, your family, and your loved ones deserve the very best for all your big moments. So, I decided to throw myself head-first into Celebrant training – and Legacy was born.

After years of attending impersonal funerals and wedding ceremonies, I realised that people deserved more. Every ceremony is tailored to your personal needs. My goal is to always create a meaningful and memorable day – the magic happens from working closely with you to bring your stories to life.

My life as a Celebrant takes me all over the North East of Scotland and beyond. I live in the beautiful surroundings of Royal Deeside and I love the land around me. I love being in nature – if I’m not working, you are sure to find me in my garden which is often a source of inspiration.

I love working with people who want to remove themselves from the shackles of convention.

I am trained as a Shamanic celebrant and can bring authentic rituals into ceremonies. I am also a qualified Shamanic and Reiki practitioner. Everything we include in a ceremony is intentional and therefore it has meaning – not as a gimmick for effect.

Having recently got married myself, which was a wedding festival that my husband and I planned for ourselves I understand the stress that wedding planning can bring.

We sourced the suppliers, and got our hands dirty preparing the garden and a field – it was more of an education than any celebrant training could provide!

This led to an amazing day and night with comments like;

“the best wedding of the century – including mine” and “can we do it again?”

“I want this for your ceremonies too.”

I have a real love of nature so outdoor ceremonies are perfect – but being in Scotland, the weather can be unpredictable. A ‘Plan B’ is always a good idea! Being a Celebrant is more than a job for me. It is an extension of my life.

As a dedicated Celebrant, I take my job very seriously, but don’t worry – I am not stoic.

In fact, the more out there the better! Working with a Bespoke Celebrant gives you the freedom to choose a time and place that is meaningful to you, without being constricted by “house rules”.

This applies to all ceremonies, from funerals to weddings, baby-namings to memorials and everything in between.
