She is a member of
The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants
whose motto is
“Your Voice, Your Choice,
LIFE STORIES ceremonies are carefully handcrafted
with immense care, imagination
and complete sincerity.
Allie’s work is all about the individuals and families who book her services.
“There is nothing ‘off the peg’ when it comes to what I provide,
that would be disrespectful to the people I work with and for.
I take great pride in getting to know my clients and finding out what exactly will work for them;
no two ceremonies are the same and that’s exactly how it should be!
Simple and heartfelt or wildly imaginative, I have no preconceptions and make no judgements;
I know we can create something unique and wonderful together.”
Allie trained with The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants,
in partnership with
The UK College of Celebrancy.
Her services include weddings, civil partnerships, funerals,
single and group memorials, naming ceremonies, vow renewal ceremonies,
divorce healings and other
‘life’s moments’ celebrations throughout
North East England and beyond.

“The things we do outlast our mortality.
The things we do are like monuments
that people build to honor
heroes after they've died.
They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians
built to honor the pharaohs.
Only instead of being made of stone,
they're made out of the memories
people have of you.”
R.J. Palacio -Wonder
