Being a part of your special day is the
best job in the world.
As a family celebrant it is my privilege
to craft your bespoke celebration.
Marking precious milestones,
telling your story from the heart,
it's all about you and your family,
every word is a reflection
of your journey.
I live in a pretty village in the
Scottish Borders with my husband
and our hairy dogs. I have three grown
children - now stepping out on their own,
and three beautiful grandchildren.
If you have always dreamt of a ceremony
under the stars, or an intimate gathering beside
the river, as your celebrant we can create that
magical, memorable ceremony
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Lao Tzu on Love
Celebrations of Life
The loss of someone close to us
is an incredibly difficult time.
Sometimes a formal service does not feel appropriate when we feel there is so much more to share.
Allow me to create a personal ceremony that not only reflects your wishes, but respects theirs too.
As your celebrant I can help you and your family pay tribute to your loved one in a way that honours
and celebrates their memory.
As your wedding celebrant I will create your celebration with all the special details that you choose, it's your day,
and it's your story.
I can help you achieve your dream ceremony, a unique reflection of your joy in finding one another.
Traditional or contemporary,
I tailor the celebration around your wishes, incorporating hand written sentiments, old and new customs,
and unique vows.
Naming & Welcome
We all want to celebrate the arrival
of new babies and children
into our families.
I am delighted to chat to you about the ways in which we can craft this lovely ceremony to bring together all the generations.
A celebration to mark the start of their new journey with you, in exactly the way that suits you best, at home,
out of doors, or among friends at a family gathering.
'' My family can't praise Amanda enough for the eloquent and sympathetic way she helped us with Dads funeral Service. Her warmth and understanding of exactly what Dad wanted in his service was such a comfort. Her guidance and professionalism on the day were exemplary but what struck everyone who attended the service was the genuine care and understanding she showed to us and everyone else who was there remembering Dad. He would be so proud of our choice of Celebrant. Thank you so much x.

'We feel Amanda made our wedding day far more personal and special for us as a couple. We loved how she included our family in the ceremony and how they all had a special part to play. Our wedding was very intimate. She created our personal story and vows and she made it the most perfect day, the very best it could be. She came up with lots of creative ideas to make it extra special for us, including hand fasting. She comes highly recommended and remains a special part of our day and always will.'

Amanda .. Thank you so much for doing such a lovely service for Dougie.
It was a beautiful and honest eulogy of his life,
with a perfect balance of humour and solemnity....
You did him proud and I'm sure he would have been happy
with the way he had been portrayed.
Still can't believe that larger than life fella is not going to come around the corner
with his window wound down and music blaring,
for his tea ever again.

Amanda, thank you so much for yesterday. The ceremony was so beautiful, how blessed we were with the weather. It was just perfect and everyone was commenting on how lovely it was so thank you for the wonderful words you put together for us.
The rest of the day was amazing, we loved every minute of it. Will send through some photos when they come through.
You have such a warm and calming presence. After the nerves of walking down the aisle, I felt immediately relaxed once the ceremony started and couldn’t have asked for anyone better to marry us. Thank you again
Flora & Andrew Montgomery
Numbers were heavily restricted within the church and it was important to us
that our daughter was welcomed into both the family and her community.
Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful service you did for Poppy,
you brought sparkle to the gathering and circled our family in love.
We cannot imagine a more perfect way to have celebrated
our daughters arrival. Thank you Amanda.
