Evonne’s interest in becoming a humanist celebrant came to the forefront after attending a number of humanist-led ceremonies. Impressed with the attention to detail, personal touch and warmth which they provided, Evonne asked a humanist celebrant to officiate her own wedding celebrations!
Following more research into humanism as a life stance, Evonne realised that the values are very much what influence the way in which she leads her own life; recognising the importance of every person and living life to full reward. With this in mind, she decided to pursue her interest in training to become a celebrant and joined the Humanist Fellowship of Scotland.
Since then, Evonne has had the privilege of working with families and couples to create and deliver ceremonies to mark important occasions in their lives
With a degree in Journalism and a background in Learning & Development, Evonne has considerable experience in writing and public speaking and she enjoys all things creative. Her genuine interest in working with people ensures that each ceremony is unique, personal, and memorable.
Evonne McLaughlin is based in Glasgow and is happy to travel across Scotland to create and deliver wedding, funeral and baby naming ceremonies which recognise and reflect the importance of the occasion and of those involved.
Funeral For Jessie: Hi Evonne, A quick e mail to personally thank you for a wonderful ceremony for my mum Jessie. It was a measure of your reading of the ceremony that everybody loved the way it was laid out and presented, and was a great reflection of my mum’s life. I also felt that you where one of the family when reading it and it made everything feel more personal.
