As a celebrant, I perform or officiate at your ceremony, and whilst you will most often see me at weddings, I also conduct other events like vow renewals, baby naming, adoption celebration, family blending, and engagement ceremonies. The rites of passage events also include me leading funerals, interments and memorials, with a unique and bespoke script, crafted and personalised as you require.
Whatever ceremony you are planning, remember that you are beautiful and unique and that you deserve a day which reflects you …
… beautifully and uniquely.
Being a celebrant now is so rewarding – not just to use my own talents in helping you to say ‘I love you’ or ‘I do’ or ‘Welcome to the World!’ or ‘Farewell’ but so that I can be inspired by your stories, all the people, places and events that have impacted your life and that make you uniquely you!
I am a great listener. You may have been dreaming of this time since forever, or your event may have had to be hastily scheduled. Either way, if you have really explicit ideas and can express them, I will be sure to interpret them to your liking, weaving them into the ceremony that you desire. If you’re not quite so sure of what you want, I have a vast experience of being able to draw out your vision or inner thoughts so that, together we can craft a lasting, memorable event that suits your needs.
I am proud of the heritage that I have; a rich cultural understanding of people, from all walks of life.
So, whether you would like to incorporate aspects of your faith or cultural tradition, or if you would prefer to create something quirky, and handmade, reflecting your distinct values and wishes, we can let it be. I can create for any faith or none.
I have compassion, empathy and a belief that, whatever this life is about, it’s surely about celebrating with each other along this journey, the exquisite joys of new beginnings or the respectful honouring of final farewells.
However you want this significant moment of your life, I am honoured to guide you through.
