Hi, I’m Melanie…


Melanie Leckie Humanist Celebrant

I was inspired to become a Celebrant after being moved by my sister’s Humanist wedding, and my friend’s Humanist funeral. Both ceremonies were incredibly personal and unique, and left a lasting impression. I felt it would be a real honour to provide this kind of service.

Humanist ceremonies are highly meaningful as they’re so personalised, and they leave an impact on all who attend due to their focus on the celebration of life: the events which lead to two individuals choosing to join their lives together in marriage; the new lives being celebrated and welcomed into the world in naming ceremonies, and the important lives lived by loved ones who have passed, with the celebration of the lasting memories they leave behind.

I absolutely love my work! It means so much to be asked to share in these most special moments of life, and I really value working with people to create the perfect ceremony for them, whether for a happy celebration of life going forward, or for a moving farewell as a life ends.  I know from personal experience how comforting it was to have a Humanist funeral for my incredible mum – it was a real celebration of her life and of who she was to each of us, and it is a privilege to be able to offer this honouring of a unique life for other families finding their way through bereavement.

A Bit About Me

I’m a fun-loving and down-to-earth person, and in my spare time can normally be found enjoying the outdoors with my family.

I love to spend time with my horse, Charlie – a very big and handsome Belgian Warmblood who likes a lot of attention! My daughter, Georgia, is a great rider too, and we spend a lot of time together sharing this passion and introducing Charlie to new playgrounds – he especially loves the beach at St Andrews, one of my favourite places.

While my daughter and I love the wind through our hair while riding on four legs, our daft Dalmatian, Draco, completes the family – keeping us on our toes and encouraging us to play outdoors a lot, whatever the weather – for him, the more mud the better!

Please get in touch if you have any question, or if you would like to discuss your needs and explore the possibilities for your upcoming ceremony.
