I am very much a people person so I love the opportunity and freedom to work closely with couples to produce a wedding ceremony that is unique to them. The only barriers in a Humanist Wedding ceremony are the limits of your imagination!
George has been conducting Humanist wedding ceremonies for a number of years and began conducting funeral ceremonies in 2014.
Having worked in Hotel Management for over 20 years, with extensive participation in wedding receptions primarily as Master of Ceremonies, George saw training as a Marriage Celebrant as a natural progression.
He now feels honoured and privileged at being more involved in the actual wedding ceremonies. George has vast experience in events organisation, combined with a love of after dinner speaking and presenting shows on Hospital Radio. These assets provide George with the type of professionalism and confidence which he believes help to provide the best possible wedding experience for couples on the happiest day of their lives.
George has built a reputation for his attention to detail which he believes is very important when receiving details of a loved one’s life story and then telling that story at the funeral. George has all the necessary qualities he believes are required to deliver very personal, moving and fitting tributes in the most professional and dignified manner.
Giving the deceased the ceremony they deserve is paramount in George’s opinion, and George feels honoured and privileged to be able to help families and friends through this most heartbreaking and stressful time.
George believes that none of us really know what happens after the committal so these words which were written by his friend Andrew to be read by George at Andrew’s funeral are quite apt.
“ I pass through this world towards eternity via the big sleep. If the Galilean fisherman should stop me, then I will realise that my faith was shallow and most probably non existent.
However if I were to be unmolested on my final journey, then this could indicate that a secular state exists, and that the final sleep will be everlasting”
