consistent social media
Before delving into the strategies for maintaining consistency, let's address the elephant in the room: the consequences of inconsistent marketing.

In the last few decades theatre has become elitist. Despite its conception being rooted in working-class culture - remember when the gentrified had to ‘dress down’ to enter Shakespeare’s globe to watch his performances because the theatre was not for them - theatre has taken a full 180. With tickets at an extortionate price and drama being pushed out of state-school education, most working-class people will never step a foot in a theatre let alone enjoy performances. And if marginalised communities don’t feel reflected in the stories or respected in the spaces then why would they go? Which just creates the self-fulfilling prophecy that theatre is only for White people.

This month, I am excited to introduce you to another of our Graduates, Michelle Clayford, Celebrant based in Leeds. Michelle completed our Funeral Celebrant Training and our Wedding and Vow Renewal Celebrant Training. She's based in Leeds and conducts ceremonies in and around West Yorkshire.

Within a society that constantly narrows the beauty standards to one type of femme: straight, white and slim, praising anything other than the archetype, becomes political. But like every part of society, whenever the narrative is challenged and those being championed are the very people we have been conditioned to villainise, those at the top of the pile want their privilege to remain in tact. Cue the slim, white women.

It was after attending the funerals of each loved-one, two of the funerals were just four weeks apart, and listening to the services which were delivered by Celebrants. I was left with a feeling that I did not understand. I wanted to be that person officiating the service. It felt like a calling, something connected within me so strongly and at the time I did not even know these people were Celebrants, and you could train to be one.
Inclusivity and diversity as an Independent Celebrant


This role is full of opportunity to learn and grow. Each ceremony presents a new set of challenges, demands, and opportunities for creative expression. From staying updated on laws and regulations to adapting ceremony styles, being a celebrant encourages a spirit of lifelong learning. Attending and delivering training sessions, workshops, and networking with fellow celebrants is invaluable. It not only enhances my skills but also allows me to be part of a vibrant community. I love this group of professionals who share a passion for creating meaningful ceremonies.
life celebrations are about love
When someone we love dies, the love we feel for them is as real as it ever was. The feelings we had for them don’t go away. They might feel different for a while, perhaps even painful. But at the heart of our memories is love. I believe crafting someone’s service to mark the end of their life, is the greatest love story there is to tell.
