a little about me


 I am so glad that you have found me.

This little bit tells you about me - but I am more interested in you!

I am an inclusive and welcoming Celebrant who specialises in  Handfasting ceremonies and Funerals.

Here are three facts about me...

1. I love my rescue dogs

Lyra and Gina

They are rubbish when it rains - I have to stand outside getting wet as they won't go out alone - but I love them anyway!

My favourite ring bearer at a wedding is a dog!

2. I used to live in Amsterdam

and speak a little Dutch

I could feed the ducks on the canal outside my flat! The architecture is outstanding which is why I love weddings in historical buildings.

3. I love nature

and adore being outside

I have been known to hug a tree or two in my time and walking in the woods is my all time joy. This is why woodland weddings are so close to my heart.

What do I love about being a Celebrant?

Three reasons this is the best job in the world!


I love weddings and all celebrations

Helping couples have their perfect day and involving all their family gives me such joy.

My favourite moment is when I tie the final knot and you look at each other with such love and joy - makes my heart soar every time!


I believe love is the most important thing in life

Whatever and whoever you love - do so wholeheartedly and with passion.

I didn't expect to feel so passionately about funerals.

I was a teacher for a long time, and loved it. Now I find many of those skills help me when writing and conducting funerals. The moments I treasure are learning all about the person and then writing their life story - celebrating the extraordinary in the ordinary. 


Hobbies and interests:

I enjoy glass fusing and creating one off pieces, which I sell on fb and my glass designs workshop. It really is a hobby, but very absorbing. As I have got older I have been able to enjoy being creative - singing, acting and even Panto! I bring this creativity to the weddings and funerals I plan too.

Swimming, gardening and learning new things are all passions of mine. I love finding out about other people's passions. Meeting new people and finding out about them is a great part of my work.
