Helping dear friends to celebrate…
In 2004 friends asked me to ‘marry’ them, since they didn’t want to have a traditional wedding ceremony. At that time I didn’t know about celebrants, but I loved the opportunity to help dear friends celebrate their big day. This moment paved the way for me to build a career I am absolutely passionate about.
Being a celebrant enables me to combine most of my great loves in life – meeting new people, visiting new places, organising events, creative writing and cats – (okay well, not so much the cats, but if anyone would like to involve their cat in one of their ceremonies I’d be delighted!)
Member of professional bodies
I have since gone on to create bespoke ceremonies for weddings and other events, during the past 12 years, both in the UK and abroad, and I’m a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, and a listed member of The Celebrant Directory.
A ceremony that truly reflects you as an individual
Being part of an occasion that marks a special moment in someone’s life is a unique honour and joy. You will find me calm and relaxed, but also very organised, and I like to take the time to really get to know all my clients, (and always over coffee and cake, whenever geography permits!)
My wish is to provide people with a ceremony that truly reflects them as individuals. I work closely with clients to run through ideas and inspirations, and the final content is always agreed in advance.
Having worked in the creative industries for more than 20 years I love to respond to whatever vision a client may have for their event, and it has helped me to become a good problem solver, and have the ability to think on my feet. Plus, I can also advise on the staging and ‘choreography’ of the ceremony, as well as creating the verbal content.
I’m always happy to have a no-obligation chat too, so you can find out more about what I can offer.
“We had such a wonderful weekend with so many happy memories and the ceremony will always hold a special place in our hearts. In spite of the rain, it was a fantastic service and so many guests came up to us after the ceremony in the forest to say that it was one of the most moving services that they have ever attended. This is testament to all your hard work in putting together such a personal and meaningful script for us. Thank you again…”
