My name is Lesley Mitchell, and as an Independent Celebrant, I will work with you to create and deliver the ceremony that fits your exact needs. Whether spiritual or secular, formal or informal, I will help to design a service that is right for you.

Originally from Glasgow and brought up abroad I returned to Scotland and Aberdeen has been my home for 40 years. I am a florist and have owned florist shops where I had wide experience helping bereaved people at a vulnerable time. My work as an Independent Celebrant gives me the chance to connect with people on a more meaningful and personal level. My love of language has given me an experience in writing and communication.

Essentially, I like meeting and talking with people! No matter who we are or what we do, we all have a unique story to tell, and I would like to help others to find the right words for the important moments in their lives.

As a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, I am also accredited by the National Association of Funeral Directors

Karen Gray

“Just wanted o say it was lovely meeting you and thank your for the lovely service for my Mum Maureen last Thursday. I think we got it right and as everyone said afterwards it was a lovely story of her life albeit not all happy…”


Andrew Coutts

“I just wanted to write and thank you for the excellent ceremony you performed yesterday for my late father Findlater Coutts. Everybody I spoke to praised it, and it certainly ticked all the boxes. Amongst my late father’s papers I found several poems which were similar in content to the ones you quoted. I am sure that if he’d been able to hear your words himself, he would have given them a big thumbs up.”
