Veronika Robinson


Hello, and welcome to the Heart-led Celebrants directory. I’m Veronika Robinson, co-founder of Heart-led Ceremonies Celebrant Training, which I co-tutor with Paul Robinson, the voice and presentation coach. I’m also the editor of The Celebrant magazine and a working celebrant.

I’ve had the immense pleasure of creating, writing and officiating ceremonies since 1995, and have officiated across all rites of passage.

My work as a celebrant is to honour and affirm life’s special moments with beautiful bespoke ceremonies. No two ceremonies I write are the same.

As an independent celebrant, I’m not restricted by religion, customs, time or place. I can create a ceremony with anything that is important to you whether that’s religious, spiritual, holistic, humanist, humorous, philosophical, symbolic or other.

As your celebrant, I take care to hold the space, and reflect the light towards your ceremony. I will lead the guests/congregation through your rite of passage seamlessly with craft, pace and heart.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved words and anything that carries a sense of beauty and reverence. Being a celebrant brings these both together.  My background in journalism and public speaking means that I’m skilled at listening to people’s stories and writing them clearly and delivering them with care. It would be my honour to be your celebrant. Please get in touch for an obligation-free chat.

Ceremonies I offer include: wedding, commitment, vow renewal, handfasting; funeral (cremation and burial), memorial, eco-burial, interment or scattering of ashes; naming for all ages including adults and transgender renaming; house blessing; new business blessing; graduation blessing; divorce healing; parting of the ways; Sagesse (wise elder) ceremony; menarche; blessingway; menopause; amputation acknowledgement; Little Free Library opening; opening of a new garden (public or private), fertility and conscious conception, friendship blessing, and so on.

I’m available throughout Cumbria and further afield upon request.
