Essential Funerals

Humanist Funerals Scotland

Pauline Hughes

Pauline Huges CelebrantI love working with or meeting new people and always strive to stay in tune with their beliefs and aspirations. In the past few years, I have attended Humanist ceremonies and was struck by how personal and creative they were – always giving a real sense of the people involved. I decided it was something I would like to be involved in and have been impressed by the professional, innovative and caring approach of Essential Funerals.

After leaving university, I have worked within a variety of social work settings for 22 years. Despite the difficulties that social work tackles, my work has essentially involved reaching out to people and ultimately making lives better. I am confident in my communication skills, in making people feel at ease as well as helping individuals achieve important goals and happiness in life.

I am an enthusiastic, friendly person with lots of ideas and a good sense of humour – when appropriate of course! I am also well used to public speaking in front of small and large groups alike.

I share the values that underpin the Essential Funerals philosophy – particularly their focus on creating a very inclusive and unique service, which recognises individuality and the importance of ceremonies in all our lives.

Many people now wish to celebrate a life or grieve without the traditional constraints of religious conventions. I feel that it is important to respect this need and offer a more
personal service.

Originally from Ayrshire, I now live in Bearsden, Glasgow however could willingly cover ceremonies further a field.
