My name is Cate and I am a TLC Marriage Officer and Independent Celebrant!!!
I am sympathetic, empathic, affable and I love connecting with people. I’m conscientious, loyal and I have a strong sense of personal values and I like neatness and order and I prefer a harmonious environment, where each person can be appreciated for their contribution.
I am Mum to Jolene, Bryden and Keeven and Granny to Travis who celebrates his 2nd birthday this month and are patiently waiting for the arrival of his wee brother or sister who is expected June 2020…….I’ll keep you posted!!!
I am the youngest of 6 daughters to parents John and Lottie (yes, 6 lassies and no boys). Sadly, my Dad passed away September 2016 his death has played a significant part in my career change and in becoming a Celebrant.
I live my partner Craig and we have a wee Jack Russel dog called Millie and we enjoy the slower pace of life here in Kingsbarns, Fife. I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful part of Scotland (Kingsbarns), however I never forget my roots to the West Coast of Scotland (Clydebank), and I often return to my hometown for work, pleasure and catch up with family and friends.
In my past life I have been a sales assistant, an early year’s practitioner, a bus driver (yes double decker’s), a lecturer and then my final job was the head of the children and young people department in an FE college. Interestingly all my jobs have been always working in a supportive role and I love supporting people, especially during difficult times.
I open-minded, curious and insightful and I have an excellent long-range vision and sensitivity. I am deeply committed whenever I undertake a role or task and I notice things around me and generally find the deeper meanings within most situations.
I am an associate member of the Scottish Independent Celebrant Association (SICA) and a full member of the UK’s Institute of Professional Celebrants (IoPC) and work to the highest industry standards with fully comprehensive insurance.
