True Harmony Celebrants

About Me

Independent Celebrant

Glynis Haveron

I believe every ceremony should be unique and delivered with care, whether it is a joyful occasion, such as a Wedding, Vow Renewal, Handfasting or Naming Ceremony; or saying goodbye to a loved one at a Funeral, Memorial Service or Ashes Scattering Ceremony. I have a genuine interest in people, and bring a caring and empathetic nature to my ceremonies.

I grew up in County Durham, and emigrated to South Africa when I was 20, spending 14 years there, before returning to Durham. I worked in the Corporate World for more than 30 years, travelling and working throughout the UK, Mainland Europe, US and Africa – roles which developed my understanding of different cultures.

But my passion was working with people – I spent a lot of time throughout my career developing talent, mentoring individuals, and delivering training. So I re-trained and became a Coach and Tutor, also working for a while in the NHS – and then a Funeral Director changed the course of my life when she heard me speak at a relative’s funeral, and suggested I should consider becoming a Celebrant. And so I found a career I love, which delivers total job satisfaction – I’ve always enjoyed writing, presenting, and working with people from all walks of life. And being a Celebrant allows me to incorporate all of those aspects in a role which fills me with joy.

Kelsey S – Naming Ceremony Client

Glynis was amazing for our vow renewal, from the very start she was so friendly and professional, she made sure that she took the time to know a lot of information about us as a family to make our ceremony so much more personal to us! It was a beautiful ceremony.

Mel R – Vow Renewal Client

That was exactly the send off I wanted for mum – it was perfect. You really listened when you came to meet us, and included all of our tales in the eulogy in a beautiful story .Your delivery is excellent and everyone said what a lovely service it was. Thank you so much.

AP – Funeral Client

Glynis, thank you for everything you did for my mother’s funeral. We thought the service was perfect from start to finish and people said it was what they would choose for themselves. You helped us through a very difficult time. Thanks again from me and Pauline.

Gary – Funeral Client

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts – it was so special having you at the helm.

Mr & Mrs H – Naming Ceremony Client

Glynis – what can I say but a huge thank you for making dad’s send off so special… you said everything we all thought in such a beautiful way ….I can’t say just how much you were appreciated by the whole family x

David B – Funeral Client

Where do I even start…. I can honestly say I have had a one in a kind wedding ceremony. My family and friends all commented about how gorgeous, personalised and amazing our wedding ceremony was compared to any other they had seen. The wedding ceremony is the most important part of the day and we could not have achieved any of that without you.

Rachel – Wedding Client

We feel that we had a connection with you from our first meeting. You even dressed the part and blended into our wedding colour scheme perfectly (yes I definitely noticed that lovely touch). We honestly could not thank you enough. We will recommend you till the cows come home. Thank you xx
