Gillian Macdonald

Hello my name is Gillian and I am a Heart-Led Celebrant based in the North West of England and travel between Liverpool, Southport, St Helens and Liverpool. I would appreciate the opportunity to conduct a Heart-Led service for you and your loved ones.

As a partner, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, I have been the strength, the hand-holder, the proud onlooker and the organiser; according to the needs of those around me.

Now I would like to use those skills to help and support those in my wider community.

I will plan a beautiful funeral, with your input, in order to respectfully say a final goodbye.

Together, we can create a memorial farewell to a loved one, perhaps at a later date due to current restrictions, when friends and family can say a ‘proper’ farewell.

These services will, truly, be Heart-Led. We can sing, pray, read a tribute or just hum along to a favourite tune whilst we wipe away a tear of sadness as we say goodbye; all according to what the deceased ‘would have wanted’.

Other Services

As a grandmother, the arrival of my precious grandchildren has regularly brought joy to the lives of my family and friends. In conducting a Heart-Led naming ceremony, I can create a thoughtful and ethereal celebration of the beauty of life using poems, rituals and affirmations as we welcome the new addition to the family or celebrate the joining of new family members together to make a wider loving household.

A Heart-Led wedding ceremony will allow you to exchange rings, vows and love with those closest to you. Imagine sharing your love story with your nearest and dearest, pledging your troth and tying the knot as you capture all the romance of the past in jumping the broomstick as you enter wedlock.

Saying goodbye is so hard. I understand how much a pet is as important a part of the family, and much loved and I will also create a sensitive and respectful goodbye for your faithful friend as you inter their ashes in the garden of your home, should you wish.
