About Susan Macleod Humanist Celebrant
I’m Susan and I live in the beautiful Orkney Islands where it would be my privilege to conduct your Humanist Ceremony.
Becoming a celebrant has felt like a natural integration and progression with my personal beliefs and my career as a nurse. I’ve always been a humanist but I didn’t always know what to call it; believing that life is not a rehearsal and we should live every moment to it’s full potential. Of course sometimes that potential is filled with adrenaline, excitement and change, sometimes it’s a quiet cup of coffee, a glass of wine, time spent with loved ones or a good book; every part of a life being lived is equally valid. Throughout my life I have accompanied people through some of the biggest changes in their lives, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows and everything in between. I feel very lucky that I now have the opportunity to help people acknowledge these changes in front of friends and family, to make sense of their world, and often to just have a really good time surrounded by love.
I chose to become a Humanist Society Scotland Celebrant as I believe it is vitally important that we can celebrate and mark the milestones of our lives with joy, compassion, humour, consideration for each other and understanding of our place in the world. Each ceremony is unique, personal and meaningful and I would be delighted to discuss and explore with you the many ways we can achieve this. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.
We would just like to say a huge thank you for your patience, support and such a lovely ceremony!
It was perfect for us, your ability to improvise when things weren’t quite to plan was remarkable. Everybody loved the ceremony!
