Hi, I'm Angela
I’m Angela! Why me? I love officiating! Over six years’ experience. I will go above and beyond, your ceremony your way. I am a natural organiser, happy being in charge, its my natural state of being, but also happy working within a team. I am great with the detail and love a list! I am interested in people. I like quality. I am passionate about my role and I am approachable and friendly. A bit, (no, a lot if I am being honest) of a perfectionist, I have an attention for detail. But also relaxed and motivated. I am generous and I have a good heart and I am committed to the couples and families that I work with. With any life event, time is what you deserve, and time is what I give you in abundance. I take time to really understand your wants and needs and to understand you as a couple and a family.
What's my ceremony style?
I create ceremonies all about you. I am a loving and respectful celebrant creating ceremonies all about you. I will support, guide you and write bespoke ceremonies reflecting your values. I always work with love and compassion and offer support and guidance. My goal in my life is to help people to be the very best they can be and to leave the person feeling better in themselves after we have talked. I am passionate about my role and I am approachable and friendly.
I offer, ideas, guidance and experience. We journey together.
I can adapt to your needs whilst making suggestions if required.
I am authorised through the Open Sanctuary to conduct legal weddings anywhere in Scotland. Castles, stately home and gardens are some of my favourites.

As a hopeless romantic, I love celebrating love. Whether your wedding is an intimate affair or a grand celebration of your marriage, there is no better place than Scotland to celebrate.
If outdoors in our beautiful highlands be prepared to have four seasons in a day. My favourite venues are castles, estates, and the fabulous country house hotels.
Many of my ceremonies have a traditional format, celebrating you, but with a creative modern twist.
My ceremonies are formal without the formality. Fun and fresh. Sentimental but not cheesy. Meaningful. Memorable. Joyful and authentic.
“You” is what is important, and the content, inspiration and humour of each ceremony comes solely from you. Each ceremony really is a ‘one off’. After all there are no two couples that are the same.

I create ceremonies that are unique, personal, inclusive, and heartfelt. At this tremendously sad time when we have to say goodbye to a loved one, the pain and the sadness we feel can be overwhelming. I will do everything to honour and respect your grief, whilst helping you to create a personalised funeral ceremony that is meaningful.
Each ceremony is individually written and is full of the precious memories that truly reflect, and honour, the person who has died. The ceremony will be a dignified and fitting tribute, focusing on their own journey of life that made them so special and unique.
As a Celebrant plus I support families to have choice in their end-of-life rites of passage. By choosing me as your celebrant, I will guide and support you when choosing a funeral director, a venue for the service as well as alternative coffins, music, and tributes.
Whether a traditional or alternative service, I will be there supporting you.
We will have conversations in a way that suits you best, spending time talking about how you would like the funeral to be. I talk you though the house keeping answering any questions you may have, and we go onto talk about your memories and stories of your loved one. I am there to support you and to guide you with questions if needed. Each ceremony that I write is personal and unique, some aspects do have similar words used, for time of reflection and committal, where the coffin is lowered or covered in a crematorium (if this is your wish) or interred into the ground for a burial, but I can always suggest options for you. I have many resources that I have collected over the years that I can share with you, poems, readings, prayers and music. There is no right or wrong with a funeral, it has to be right for your and for your loved one.

Best day of our lives
Angela was recommended by the hotel where we were getting married. We could not have picked someone better to conduct our wedding by helping us put together a very personal ceremony. Angela was supportive and helpful from the initial meeting right to the actual dayoffering lots of suggestions for readings, vows and remembrance of people who could not attend our wedding. Angela was incredibly supportive on the actual day checking that the groom and myself were both ok beforehand. I can’t recommend Angela enough.
Our experience with Angela was fantastic from start to finish. She responded to our enquiry very quickly and was so helpful in creating exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. Angela was flexible and gave us lots of pointers, with the end result being a relaxed, funny and meaningful ceremony. Thank you.
Angela carried out our ceremony in April 2022. She is as absolutely fantastic and allowed it to be exactly how we wanted it to go. She didn’t force anything on us but gave us some great pointers and suggestions. It ended up being the perfect length and format.
She was always there for us in the lead up to the day and keeping in touch which we are eternally grateful for especially after we had to delay it by a year due to Covid.
If you want a kind, warm hearted and loving ceremony then look no further than Angela.
