Elizabeth McConnell, Celebrant
“Creating wonderful memories when planning your wedding and preparing for marriage is something that’s so important and I enjoy working with couples to help them develop something personal and unique. I also want to help families arranging a funeral to make sure their loved one’s story is told and celebrated at what is a very difficult time”.
Elizabeth is available to conduct Wedding Ceremonies, Baby Namings & Funerals Ceremonies.
It’s all about you! Whether that’s creating the most wonderful day to celebrate your wedding or capturing the essence of a loved one when it’s time to say goodbye, Elizabeth believes that everyone has their own unique story to tell.
She will work closely with you to develop the perfect ceremony, helping you to choose the best way to reflect your personalities. From choosing your vows to deciding how you want to share your story, Elizabeth will be with you to make sure you create wonderful memories. She will help you to make your day as personal as possible and it can be as formal or as informal as you are.
When it comes to the end of life, Elizabeth feels that it’s just as important to have a personal celebration that captures the essence of your loved one. Attending funerals the last few years, she was struck by how impersonal some of the services were, even when the person was known to the celebrant. When reflecting on this, Elizabeth’s friends suggested to her that she would be ideally suited to spending time with bereaved families and sharing the story of their loved one.
She was attracted to the Fuze Foundation because of their commitment to reflect the wishes of the family and their contribution to addressing funeral poverty and funeral affordability.
Elizabeth lives in Cumbernauld with her 2 grown-up children and is happy to conduct weddings and funerals across North and South Lanarkshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh, East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Stirling or throughout Scotland.
