Hi, I am Alyson Stewart and I retired in March 2020 . I was a Paramedic for the last 29 years. I have been a humanist celebrant now since 2016 and love every single second of it.
If you are looking for your day to be no fuss, relaxed, full of emotion, full of love and full of fun then this is what I also wish for.
I have always had a fascination for anything to do with weddings and happy couples since childhood. The magical romance , quirky individuality of each and every wedding lifts my spirit and I feel so privileged to play a small part in making couples days so special and memorable for them all.
Living right in the heart of the highlands means that many of my weddings are elopements in the stunning Glencoe, Glen Etive, Cairngorms, locations but also so many others in incredible venues.
Inverness Shire is an area of incredible natural beauty and in an area steeped in history.
Perfect place for weddings etc.

Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies
Life is about helping each other and making choices that allow this. We are all sharing the same journey although we may walk different paths.
Naming ceremonies are one of these joyous occasions in life and it is such a privilege to be chosen to make this day all about what you want.
All my life I have been a people person and listening and providing a ceremony that is exactly what you require gives me so much satisfaction.
I thrive meeting new people and sharing their life stories.
These ceremonies can be as serious or as up beat as you wish them to be and will always be completly bespoke to your individual needs.
If you have read my profile and would like some more information please contact me anytime on the telephone number listed below.
Each life is so precious, so different and so individually lived. Often we do not need to have lived long lives to have lived fulfilled ones. We all have such individual stories to tell and pathways to share and it is an absolute honour and privilidge to be asked by either people preparing their own last ceremonies or families arranging a loved ones.
This is a families time to get it just exactly what the deceased would have wished and celebrate and mourn their passing with dignity, compasion and smiles. All of us have stories. many are romances, many have adventures, many have tragic stories and many just tick along. For each of us someone cares enough to want to share these with others. i conduct my ceremonies in whatever way the family wishes with the utmost respect to the best of my abilities.
