Hello, thank you for enquiring about a relationship ceremony.

My name is Rev. Helen Parsons, I am an Interfaith Minister and Independent Celebrant. As an Interfaith Minister I am not affiliated to any particular spiritual or religious organisation, but respect the inherent goodness within everyone.  Love is common to all faith paths and none, and I'm sure we can agree that love is at the root of all relationship celebrations.  My personal belief system is eclectic and inclusive. I try to be mindful, living for today with a heart of kindness, love, compassion and gratitude.  As a Minister for 'Everyone' I respond to your beliefs or non-belief, so you can enjoy a humanist style celebration with no spiritual content, or if you prefer, we can include in your ceremony any spiritual or religious words, songs or verses of your choice and from any faith path.

It was through writing and officiating my husband’s funeral, that I first became interested in becoming a celebrant. Since then I completed my NOCN Level 3 qualification in Civil Celebrancy, Ordained as an Interfaith Minister and trained as a Companion for the Dying (also known as Soul Midwife or Death Doula). I also offer spiritual and life enhancing counselling and complimentary therapies such as Reiki.


My family is very important to me and I am blessed with two married children and three wonderful grandchildren who live in Sussex. As I travel South frequently, it means that if you live outside of Cumbria, or wish to hold your ceremony near your home town, I am happy to offer you my services.

When I am not working, I love exploring the Fells and Lakes with my four Springer Spaniels. One of my favourite quotes by an unknown author is; “The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hands of man”.



Since moving to North West Cumbria in 2016, I have officiated many relationship celebrations such as Weddings, Naming’s, Vow Renewals, Rite of Passage and Funerals. I specialise in open-air ceremonies because I respect and honour the natural world and our place within it.  Albert Einstein said; "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."

As a member of the Fellowship of Indpendent Celebrants (FOIC), I am fully insured and you can be confident of my continuous professional development. I am also on the Register of OneSpirit Interfaith Ministers, through this organisation and with permission from the Registrar General I can officiate legal wedding ceremonies in Scotland, these marriages are also recognised in the UK.

 Thank you for reading about me.  I leave you with the words of Bruce Lee;

Absorb what is useful,

Discard what is not,

Add what is uniquely your own.
