Full Description
Hi 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. Proud Mum of Jolene, Bryden and Keeven and Granny to Travis 2 years. I have the pleasure of announcing the birth of my second grandson Reggie who arrived safely into this world during lockdown - a huge thanks to all staff at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. I am the youngest of 6 daughters to parents John and Lottie (yes, 6 lassies and no boys). Sadly, my Dad passed away in 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 a peaceful and serene 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. My career has been varied e.g. sales assistant, Early Year’s Practitioner, Bus Driver (yes double decker’s), Lecturer, Course Leader and last but not least Head of Dept for the Early years sector at Dundee and Angus 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'm deeply committed whenever I undertake a role or task and I notice things around me and generally find the deeper meanings within most situations. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to know more about the service offered. I promise you won’t be disappointed!! Cate

Amazing approach!!!
Hi Cate Harry & I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing lengths you went to make sure our big day went ahead & with the minimum of fuss for Harry's benefit. You made things happen that we never thought possible from advice on our special dispensation to the beautiful ceremony you so lovingly conducted for us in the comfort of our own sitting room & all in just 2 weeks! Travelling to a wedding venue was not an option for us due to Harry's condition but your amazing approach gave him a sense of normality for the day where his disabilities weren't an issue & that is a massive achievement. Well done on making what was a bittersweet day into a happy & memorable occasion. Warm Regards Mr & Mrs Houston xxx

A special Thank-You!
We can't thank you enough for marrying us. It was such a beautiful ceremony that you performed for us. Not only do we talk about it, our guests were also so touched by it. The words and the meaning were so beautiful and touching. We couldn't believe how perfect you made it for both of us. Everyone at our wedding said it was the most beautiful, loving ceremony they had ever witnessed. With love and thanks. x Paul and Gennax
