Moira Stephen | Family Celebrant

In my working life, I have been a writer, a teacher, an events organiser, an examiner and I ran drama workshops. Most of these I performed, or still perform, in a senior management role, where it is essential to be professional, have a sense of integrity and responsibility for other people and to be aware of their needs and the stresses in their lives.

I bring these years of experience, professionalism and integrity to my celebrancy now.

A humanist, I believe in the here and now – that we don’t get a second chance and we need to get it right and have fun this life round – we should celebrate the special moments in life.

I understand that couples who are not religious will probably rule out a religious ceremony but may still want something spiritual. One couple described their ceremony as ‘…non-religious but spiritual. Profound without prayer. Fun…A ceremony which reflected us…’

When choosing a celebrant, couples should look at what celebrants say about themselves and look at what they have done. They should ask whether the celebrant is trained and professional. And then, crucially, they should look at what others say about them. My approach to a couple’s wedding is that it is just that – theirs…unique to them – and the care that I put into each wedding is reflected in the comments below:

‘…Moira had really taken the time to get to know us intimately – she knew us better than we knew ourselves!’

‘She is positive, down to earth and relaxed; qualities that we were looking for in someone to conduct our ceremony. She listened to what we wanted – she was receptive to our ideas and thoughts and accommodated them seamlessly. Her calm and professional approach was integral to the planning of our bespoke ceremony and nothing was too much trouble…’

‘Moira was the most wonderful and thoughtful person to have as a celebrant. She understood exactly what we were after because she took the time to get to know us both – and then worked tirelessly to make our wedding day special… Her ceremony was amazing, we loved her take on it, and everyone we talked to about it found it exceptionally moving.’


These comments express everything I would want to say, but in short, I will create a ceremony unique to you – I will help you to design your perfect day.
