Full Description
**Founding member of LGBTQ Equality Weddings and an endorser of the Mental Health Media Charter**. Your ceremony is the most important part of the day. It is your chance to say exactly what you want to your partner with your closest friends and family as witnesses. I love creating meaningful but fun ceremonies with my couples. My celebrant style is inclusive, relaxed and friendly with a sprinkling of humour. That being said, I take my lead from you! We work together to create a tailor-made script that showcases your personalities and kicks off your dream wedding day. So if you would like: to hold your ceremony in a place meaningful to you (including outdoors, at home or any other venue without a civil ceremony license), to try something a bit different, to write your own vows and promises, to hold a non-religious but inclusive ceremony, to write something more meaningful and personal than a civil ceremony with full editing control, then I may be someone you would like to work with. More testimonials are available on my website and Facebook page. Please feel free to message me with any queries or to arrange a free introductory meeting if you'd prefer to chat face to face (with no obligation to book).

What is your most memorable wedding?

My first! An outdoor wedding with a couple who spend a lot of time apart on different continents. They married in Australia and wanted to repeat their vows in front of their British family and friends.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed. Fun. Personal. Inclusive. Sincere

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I can support couples from a variety of backgrounds to celebrate their love and relationship in ways that feel uniquely special to them.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Just do you! It is great to get help and advice from others but remember that this is your ceremony, your wedding, your love, your day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love hearing the couple's own words about each other and their own vows.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Optional introduction meeting - chat with me over a cuppa. Planning meeting - getting into the backstory, the details, getting to know you as a couple, you tell me what you want from your ceremony. Draft script - I write a draft script from scratch. Edits - you edit the script as much or as little as you would like. Finalise script. Optional rehearsal. On the day - I arrive around an hour before, make sure the venue is set up as you would like and everyone feels ready.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

My couples have full control over what is in their ceremony. They can contact me whenever they like and I will help them with any queries they have. We can do an optional rehearsal. I arrive in plenty of time on the day to coordinate the ceremony with other key guests or suppliers.

What do you love most about your job?

Remember that your ceremony is the most important part of your day

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

Oh crikey, how can you pick just one? I actually really love the build up; the anticipation as everyone takes their seats and waits for the ceremony to begin.
