If you’re going to trust me with one of your biggest life events I can totally understand why you’d want to know a bit more about who I am. The best possible way we can do this is over a chat and cuppa (I’m a tea-monster) but before we get to that, here’s a bit about how I got here.
I’ve worked for over 20 years in live events and PR – basically lots of writing, lots of organising and best of all lots of people! One of the things I’ve loved most about my career is meeting hugely diverse people who all have interesting stories to tell – even when they don’t think they have. Creating memorable moments and events that inspire people to think and feel differently has been my passion and I’m incredibly lucky that it’s given me opportunities to turn exhibition halls into funfairs and create VIP hospitality for the world’s sporting elite.
So where does being a celebrant fit in?
It’s that love of people and a yearning to make a difference that drew me to the celebrant world. Increasingly, I was hearing that families were looking for ‘something different’ to either celebrate or commemorate their stories and were frustrated that they had to stick to ‘rules’ they didn’t understand, or believe in. As an independent celebrant I’m here to tell your story, in your way. There is no right or wrong when it comes to any ceremony, it’s about making it relevant, unique and memorable for you and your guests.
I’m a romantic at heart, an imperfect perfectionist and a tenacious dreamer so if you’ve thought of it, however crazy or rebellious, I will do everything in my power to make it happen.
As I encourage all the wonderful families I work with …Trust Your Rebel Heart and it will be the ceremony you’ve always dreamed of, but never thought you were allowed.
But enough about me – let’s talk about your story!
