About me

I am an Independent Celebrant based in Brighton & Hove.

My role as your celebrant in whatever life’s occasion is to ‘be there’ for you every step of the way, celebrating ‘togetherness.’ 

I am passionate about getting to know your story of love, life or loss and I will share that story in an inclusive and respectful way. 

Like those starlings that fly in murmuration above the beautiful West Pier in Brighton, we can go on whatever journey you like… 

‘Together is a beautiful place’ 

CELEBRANT LED WEDDING CEREMONIES

Your wedding day is the most monumental occasion in your lifetime, in choosing me as your celebrant, the only rule is that there are no rules! 
I pride myself in creating truly personalised ceremonies where together,  we will bring your love story to life. This can include many of the elements that you and your guests would expect to see at a wedding (exchange of vows and rings etc.) but we also have the freedom to include as many, or as little of your family and friends as you choose so that your ceremony is engaging, warm, fun and relaxed and will become a lasting memory for everyone attending!

‘My’ promise to ‘you’ is that ‘they’ will be talking about ‘your’ ceremony for a very long time!

Vow Renewals

Vow renewals are really an extension of my weddings. It is a way to celebrate your 10/25/50 or in fact any number of years together when you’re at a point where you want the world to know that you’d do it all over again in a heartbeat! 
It can take place at home, on the beach, in your garden or on a mountaintop, basically anywhere that has sentimental meaning for both of you.
We can include your children if you have them or perhaps your original bridesmaids or bestmen or bridesmen or bestwomen!
Quite often it is the opportunity for a couple to have the celebration that perhaps they couldn’t afford or dreamt of having when they got married!
It is a chance for us to create a new memory that reaffirms your ‘togetherness’ and leads you on the way towards your next milestone anniversary!

Baby Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is an opportunity to welcome and celebrate the arrival of a precious child into your family.
 This makes them popular with adopting and fostering families too. During the ceremony, you as parent’s state your love and commitment to your child and share hopes and dreams for their future. I love to include ‘guideparents’ and a declaration that they will ‘be there’ for your child as he/she grows up and throughout their life, in whatever way is needed.

Funerals

Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.
As a funeral celebrant, I will support and guide you through the toughest times you face. My aim is to learn the story of your lost beloved and for the time that we share to do my upmost to bring that persons story back to life so that we can be comforted and focused not on their loss, but on the specialness of having them as part of our lives in the first place.

Having experienced the pleasure of attending a wedding that was led by Stewart, I would have no hesitation in recommending his warm, caring, considered and confident approach to leading an event. I won’t hesitate to call upon him in the future for family events.
