"Person centred ceremonies which reflect the occasion"
I became a humanist celebrant having been inspired to do so after attending several humanist funerals and weddings. I believe in the principles and values of humanism and that everyone is important.
I really enjoy conducting weddings. I feel so lucky to be part of a couple’s special day. I enjoy planning the wedding ceremonies with couples and providing them with information and choice as to what they would like in their ceremony. Every ceremony is different as it is personal to them. I like travelling around the country, have been lucky to meet some lovely people and have been to some wonderful venues.
Some spectacular venues and some very small and intimate but every ceremony is special and important.
I have been helping bereaved families celebrate the life of loved ones in a very personal way by providing funeral ceremonies focused on the life of the person. I feel privileged to be able to support families and friends in their times of bereavement. I feel we should celebrate the life people have led and focus on what that person has meant to family, friends and acquaintances.
I also provide baby naming ceremonies which again offer a unique and personal service for that special occasion. This is a wonderful opportunity to welcome a new person into the world surrounded with love and acceptance.
I am based in the West Lothian area and I would be happy to work in other areas across Scotland.
We had a truly amazing day and the ceremony was just perfect, I loved every minute of it! You were a lovely calming influence and I felt so comfortable, just like it was just the 3 of us there.
Thank you to everyone who made our wedding so special, in particular a BIG thank you to Thirza Wilson Humanist Celebrant and dear friend who conducted our service wonderfully well despite the anticipated audience participation and fun heckling.
That is us back from honeymoon and back to reality. I am gutted it is all over with. We just wanted to drop you an email to say how wonderful our ceremony was. You did such a fantastic job and you were so lovely and easy to work with. Thank you for playing such an important role in our day.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for conducting a wonderful ceremony. Lots of our guests (especially those from outside Scotland) commented on how nice and personal it was, and Gary and I both felt safe in your capable hands!
