Janis Marshall Reilly, Celebrant
“My approach to life is one of kindness, respect and humour – so the fit is perfect; being a Humanist Celebrant ensures I can offer all of these traits to a couple for the most important of days”.
Janis is available to conduct Weddings & Baby Naming Ceremonies.
After enjoying a Humanist Wedding on her own special day, Janis was inspired by the fun, personal, dignified and relaxed ceremony that she and her husband experienced. Her approach to life is one of kindness, respect and humour – and the Humanist ceremony offers all these things on the most important of days.
Likewise, Janis and her husband had a Naming Ceremony for their wee girl and again found this to be an uplifting, inclusive and beautiful experience.
Based in Glasgow and passionate about what Scotland has to offer, Janis enthuses about the incredible venues where couples can now choose to be married; from urban gems to lochside retreats. She feels that the joy of the Humanist ceremony is that couples can be wed in a place they truly connect to – and with a ceremony that tells their story. The same is true of Baby Namings; in fact her own daughter’s ceremony was held in the family home – in a conservatory filled with rainbow coloured balloons!
Janis is a self-confessed happy maverick! A diverse background in public relations, events management and performing arts has seen her work in a variety of places from The Scottish Parliament to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – and perform in, direct and produce theatre and film with renowned creative organisations across the country.
Many arts professionals have numerous strings to their bow and becoming a Celebrant with Fuze has been a natural and hugely rewarding addition to Janis’ skill set. She feels truly honoured to be offering her support to couples wishing to take the next big step in their lives – and to be a part of the celebration that comes with welcoming a baby into a family.
Janis is based in Glasgow and is happy to cover Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, East and West Dunbartonshire, North and South Lanarkshire and the Greater Glasgow area. She will also consider travelling further afield, please enquire to discuss further.
