My name is Nicola Norrie, I am an Independent Celebrant based in Alexandria near to Loch Lomond, I conduct funerals and baby naming ceremonies throughout the West of Scotland.
Following on from a successful corporate career spanning over 25 years, I decided to utilise my skills to make a difference to others. I chose to become an Independent Celebrant as I love working with people. As an Independent Celebrant, I have the freedom and flexibility to create and officiate ceremonies, celebrating the beginning of a new life or saying farewell to a loved one.
Much of my role as a celebrant is about storytelling, bringing your thoughts memories and wishes together to create uplifting and meaningful tributes to celebrate life. My love of working with people attracted me to this particular vocation as it offers me the opportunity to support people through their significant life events and work together to create lasting memories.
All my ceremonies are lovingly crafted with you at the heart, they will fit with your individual requirements and more importantly represent your wishes for your loved one. I will support you to create a service that is fitting for your personal circumstances. As an Independent Celebrant I am not affiliated to any particular faith group, which allows me to be flexible when crafting your ceremony, there are no restrictions on the inclusion of Hymn’s or Prayers in a service. Your service can be non-religious, religious, spiritual or a mixture, the tone can be formal or relaxed whichever suits your needs. There is also a great deal of flexibility on the location you choose for your ceremony, so if you want to have it on a beach, a boat or up a hill I am able to come along and officiate.
My role is to work with you to create meaningful, heartfelt ceremonies that fit your needs and meet your expectations. People are at the heart of everything that I do and what matters most to me is making the services I conduct what you need them to be, it would be my privilege to work with you on your life event.
