Professional Civil Celebrant
Teresa is a professional and accredited Civil Celebrant holding a NOCN level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples (RQF) and a NOCN level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF). Deciding to become a celebrant after
having the honour of speaking at her daughter's wedding; leading both her parent's funerals and being asked to speak at other events, was a natural progression. She is a mother and grandmother, roles which she cherishes, as well as being a business owner, running White Lily Ceremonies alongside White Lily Holistics.
Previously working with Mencap and Yorkshire Ambulance Service, this Girlguiding Brownie leader enjoys devoting time to her local community.
Passionate about supporting people to have the best possible life experience,
Teresa works closely with you to create the perfect, personalised ceremony. Once she has an understanding and feel for your vision, this is woven into the script, accurately reflecting the ceremony you envisaged. Based near York, but happy to travel to deliver your ceremony at your chosen venue, wherever that may be. She’s happy to include traditional and/or religious elements, or ‘something different’, maybe something symbolic like lighting a candle, pouring sand or releasing balloons, if you choose. With over 30 years’ experience working closely with the public, Teresa finds it rewarding, humbling and a great privilege, to be allowed to share in another person’s life journey. Combining empathy, her warm caring nature and a sense of humour (where appropriate), Teresa will create your tailor-made ceremony, that’ll remain in your heart forever.
