Having recently been a guest at a number of fantastic celebrant led weddings, I decided that I wanted to help couples and families to design and enjoy a truly unique and joyous day.
I trained and qualified for my NOCN Diploma in Celebrancy, finishing with a residential training week in the beautiful High Gate House in Northampton.
I have worked in financial services for 40 years, living in both the UK and overseas, where I have learnt the importance of being a “people” person and developing great communication skills. This helps me to connect with people and understand their needs.
I am married (twice!) with a teenage son, chickens and two dogs. I currently live in Belfast but am happy to travel to any location to provide the ceremony you want, whenever and wherever you want it.
I am professional, friendly, positive and 100% confident that I can help you to design your Perfect Day.
Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies
More and more couples are celebrating their special day with a bespoke celebration ceremony as they feel that a religious church service or a brief registry office service is not what they want.
Whether you want to celebrate your marriage or your civil partnership, a celebrant led ceremony will let you create your perfect day exactly as you want it. Shouldn’t everyone have the same choices?
Normally a couple will complete the legal registration of their marriage or civil partnership a couple of days or weeks beforehand or after and then focus on having a fabulous day celebrating their union with family and friends.
You can choose where and when you want your ceremony and we can work together to agree the actual content and who you want to be involved. Your ceremony can be on any day of the week and at any time to suit you.
It can be in a forest or on a beach; in your family garden or your favourite hotel or restaurant. The choice is all yours. I will work with you to help you to create your perfect day without the restrictions that can apply with church and registry office weddings.
There are many reasons why a formal legal marriage may not be suitable for a couple. A commitment ceremony gives you the opportunity to celebrate your love for each other in front of family and friends.
This is a declaration to everyone of your ongoing commitment to each other even though you may not have completed the legal steps.
