Sharlea Sparrow

Sharlea has been a Priestess of Avalon for many years. She has an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy and is one of the Priestess Registrars for legal marriages in the Temple. She qualified in 2014 when same sex marriages became legal in the UK.

“It was wonderful to qualify in a time when all couples, whatever their sexuality, are able to celebrate marriage, freely and equally. I welcome the opportunity to at long last reflect that equality. I am really passionate about celebrating diversity, meeting new people and making the most of all the great opportunities and experiences life has to offer.

Being a Celebrant is exciting for me as I can use my creativity and attention to detail to assist you in creating a ceremony that is exactly the way you want it to be. It is a privilege and pleasure to be a part of someone’s special day, whether it be for a wedding, civil partnership, new arrival, renewal of vows or commitment ceremony.”
