Hi, I'm Paula
Hi, my name is Paula, and I live and work in the beautiful Bronte countryside in West Yorkshire.
I also cover North Yorkshire and East Lancashire.
When I am not working, I read and watch science fantasy series – big Game of Thrones fan here! My claim to fame is having my photo taken with The Mountain AKA Halfthor Bjornsson/Sandor Clegane when he was in Leeds doing a Strongman competition a few years ago – a prized possession!
I am a big Marvel fan as well and if pushed will say that Guardians of the Galaxy are probably my favourite movies in that franchise, mainly for the music and Groot.
I also love the summer months when I can spend time in my garden and watch the wildlife that comes to visit me.
My services include but are not limited to:
What's my ceremony style?
I am very much a people person, I love to learn about people, what has made them who they are today, what has made them the unique individuals they are. We are all shaped by our values and beliefs and one thing that my nursing career taught me is that we definitely come in all shapes and sizes and how important it is to respect and value those differences as well as to recognise and celebrate the similarities.
Why choose Paula?
Celebrancy is am amazing job and while I also enjoyed my mental health nursing and teaching work, I felt that I wanted to work with people in a different way. I also feel that the skills I acquired through my previous careers have equipped me well for this. The opportunity for me to become a celebrant came out of being made redundant from my last post and I realised that it was the right time for me to pursue that dream.
What do I offer?
Any and all couples who have chosen to commit to one another. The ceremony can be anything from formal to relaxed and everything in between. The pleasure for me is in seeing that couple come together as single people and leave as a unit.
My weddings are all different – each couple is different Weddings packages should not be a one size fits all affair. We live in a diverse world and I love to work with people from all walks of life to help them to create a ceremony that reflects who they are as individuals but also as a couple.
Why choose Paula for your wedding?
As a celebrant my job is to work with you to give you the ceremony you have always dreamed of, whatever format that takes.
You might want a specific theme, special elements incorporated, be a blended family, be alternative in your lifestyle – whatever your views you have the right to have the wedding of your dreams.
Whatever your dreams I will help you turn them into reality.
I love to work with families to help them celebrate one of the most important events in their lives.
Many families have moved away from a traditional religious ceremony to mark the arrival of a child but they still want to mark the occasion in some special way.
Children come to us in many ways – apart from the traditional and a naming ceremony is a beautiful way to welcome children in to the family who may have been adopted or it may be a family blending together.
Whatever the form of arrival – naming ceremonies recognise the significance and is a lovely way to involve the whole family and also friends in welcoming the child.
Face to face meetings to discuss the format of the ceremony, identify themes, arrange music, readings, poetry and special vows that people may want to make.
Why choose Paula for your naming ceremony?
As a family celebrant, my role is to listen to you and find out how you see the ceremony. Then I help you put it together the way you want it.
Renewal of Vows
Relaxed but meaningful ceremonies are a joy. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing a couple reaffirm their commitment to one another.
Sometimes people have been through tough times together and it has made them stronger as a pair and to be a part of that is an honour.
I offer face to face. meetings, ongoing support in the lead up to the ceremony as required. I will also help plan themes, music, readings and work with you to incorporate any special elements you want as part of the ceremony. As long as it is legal we will find a way to do it!
Why choose Paula for your renewal of vows?
I really do listen to you and to what you want. I may offer suggestions if appropriate but ultimately it is your ceremony and it is my job to ensure that you have the ceremony you want.
As a funeral celebrant I have delivered ceremonies for people of all ages from the very young with a family to the elderly with no family.
I like to work closely with the family of the person so that I can create a lasting tribute for that person that truly reflects them as an individual and is a ceremony that their family and friends can feel was fitting.
I offer face to face meetings and ongoing support in the lead up to the funeral.
