Being a celebrant is a role that I am really passionate about. And what a joy it is to work with people like you, helping to create your own unique ceremony!!
What qualifies me to be your celebrant?
I have a Diploma in Naming and Couples Ceremonies, obtained after a rigorous training, with Civil Ceremonies Ltd, who provide the highest level of celebrancy training in the UK.
I am a professional and have broad experience working with groups of people of all ages, in many different settings. I set up and successfully ran my own business in France. At Chateau Life Ltd, I organised and hosted residential holiday courses for guests from all over the world. After ten years, I returned to the UK to be nearer family and friends and worked for six years as Estate Manager of a Retirement Village.
I’m used to speaking to big and small groups and I am especially good at staying calm when there is a lot going on. As your celebrant, I would help to ensure that everything goes smoothly at your ceremony on your big day.
I am a caring and good listener. I love to spend time with my clients and hear their stories. I have a Psychology degree, I trained as a nurse, worked as teacher and as a counsellor. So, you can trust me to be understanding and totally discreet. If you choose me as your celebrant, our conversations will stay between us, and you will have total control over anything that I write for your ceremony.
I will be keen to discover what makes you laugh and brings you joy. Your ceremony is an important emotional milestone, but it can also be uplifting and light of heart. Let’s work together to plan an event that will make your friends and family smile and laugh and maybe even shed a tear or two, as they share your joy and your love on this special day.
I live in south Devon with my husband, Philip, and we have recently been renovating our new home.
In my spare time, I love to be outside exploring this beautiful part of the world that has become our home. We walk the coastal path and spend time on the beach. We often take a trip to our nearest cove to watch the sun go down – with the occasional (!) glass of wine in hand.
