About me

Thank you for visiting my site - Highland Ceremonies Ltd.  I'm Glynis Woodhead and I'm based in Scotland as you might imagine!  I guess you're here because something major is happening - or about to happen - in your life right now.  Whether that's a wedding, a funeral, or a different type of special moment in your life, take a look around and let me know how I can help you -  I've detailed a little more of what I do (and why I do it) below.

As an English graduate and writer, I worked in senior roles in education for 17 years, most recently as a Headteacher, so I’m a highly confident organiser and public speaker.  In some of the spare time I have, I’ve enjoyed volunteering in organisations as diverse as the prison service, the Durrell Wildlife Trust, and the Samaritans; I love writing fiction; I adore travelling and have been all over the world - one of the most special countries of all, of course, is Scotland, and there are so many beautiful places here to experience.  Most of all, though, I love spending time with my family and our gorgeous four legged friend, Nelson.  


The question I'm most often asked is why I chose to become a celebrant, and the answer to that is really easy.  I didn't know such a thing existed until I moved to New Zealand in 2010 and what I saw there was a real eye-opener.  Celebrants in the UK are much more common nowadays as people realise that celebrations need to keep the individuals concerned at the very heart of them.  So, when I came back from New Zealand six years later, I retrained as a celebrant and here I am with the number of ceremonies I've conducted now well into four figures.  

Although my company name is Highland Ceremonies, I'm certainly not restricted to the Highlands and I travel all over, especially in Perthshire, Edinburgh and Glasgow - that said, I'm happy to travel wherever you need me to be for your occasion.  If I can help you in any way, please get in touch with me and we’ll discuss how, together, we can make your most important moment really special.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the gorgeous artwork on the Home page, it's by a local artist in the Highlands - Peter McDermott, who is based in Skye.  The painting is of Loch Coruisk in Skye and you can find out more about it, and Peter's work, on the 'About the artwork' page.
