Crafting celebrations for life

My name is Sheila and as your Independent Celebrant my aim is to serve you by working together with you, and your family and friends in order to plan, prepare and perform a truly bespoke ceremony.

I spent my childhood in Manchester and went to London to study and got my first proper job there.  I started in a sales role which evolved into creating and delivering business skills training.  My work involved a great deal of travel in Europe which I enjoyed enormously so I seized the opportunity to live and work overseas.  First Hong Kong, then Singapore and finally Munich before returning to the UK with my husband and twin daughters.   

I have been involved in military service since I was a teenager so I also bring decades of experience serving in the Armed Forces to my work as a Celebrant.  Most recently I had the opportunity to serve alongside the NHS as part of our country’s response to the pandemic. 

Aspire Bespoke Ceremonies

Aspire Bespoke Ceremonies is built on the foundation of my past experiences and an ongoing curiosity about people and how our culture, traditions and life experiences inspire how we mark important life events.  Success comes from working together with my clients to build trust and a common understanding as we create something unique, satisfying and meaningful.  

I am based in the South East of England and Cornwall but as you can see I love exploring other places so don’t hesitate to call if you want to hold a ceremony further afield.
It would be a privilege to help you mark a significant life event making it as unique as you are.
