Veronica Ferguson

I am delighted that being a Civil Celebrant brings together all my passions in this very rewarding job. I moved to Scotland from Co Armagh N. Ireland to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and have been a professional actor for the last 20 years. During this time I have enjoyed travelling the length and breadth of the country appreciating the warmth of the people and the beautiful scenery.

When not acting, I teach yoga and I have been sharing the joy of this life enhancing practice for 10 years.

I enjoy writing and reading poetry and won the Elaine Gullen trophy for poetry reading whilst studying at the Conservatoire.

Where I work

I am based near Helensburgh and work throughout the West Coast of Scotland covering Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Paisley and beyond.

My Training

I trained with Celebrant Training Academy Scotland, graduating with Distinction. I was delighted to train with Neil Dorward, the first Civil Celebrant in Scotland, who has over 15 years experience as a Professional Celebrant and has been training others with Annie Scrimgeour, Academy Principal, for over 10 years.

Veronica trained with us here at Celebrant Training Academy Scotland, graduating with Distinction. Veronica will provide you with a very Professional Service and serves everyone with sincerity, compassion and the utmost kindness

After qualifying from Celebrant Training Academy Scotland, I undertook further training with celebrant and author Veronika Robinson of Heat-Led Celebrants. This helped me to refine my craft and enjoy the creative process while opening up the wonderful world of ritual and ceremony.

Why Use A Celebrant?

When it comes to Funerals (or Celebrations of Life as I believe is a more fitting name), the service celebrates the life of the deceased and truely reflects them and their beliefs. With all other ceremonies it is a joyous expression of who is having the ceremony be it a wedding, naming day or renewal of vows.

Particularly in these days of covid restrictions my aim to serve every family with a heartfelt and memorable service.

I will be delighted to discuss your needs and plans and create memorable occasion for you.
