Whether in life, in love or through loss; it is important we make opportunities to connect and come together; celebrate and commemorate, but most importantly recognise and create the ceremony required of the moment.

Acknowledging significant life events through ritual and ceremony allows us to mark important life changes, whilst also helping to guide us through our own thoughts and feelings, our hopes and wishes, both now and for the future.

As an Independent Celebrant it is my job to work with you to help create the perfect Ceremony to mark these rites of passage.

With my professional background in Language and Communication; my genuine fascination for all things relating to the human condition and your ceremonial vision; we’ll have everything we need covered!

To meet with folks, listen to their life stories and weave all of the threads together to create meaning and magnitude, is always a pleasure.

Having trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants (in partnership with the UK College of Celebrants) I use my knowledge and skills to hand craft the right words, sentiment and feeling for your Ceremony.

A Ceremony that is personal and meaningful for all involved, providing opportunity to acknowledge the past. To laugh, love, cry; but most importantly celebrate and look to the future.

With no rules centred around how you should celebrate your event; we can add whatever you like to create a bespoke ceremony, that is both unique and meaningful to you.

Working with you to find the best layout, structure, ritual, words and music for your ceremony is fundamental.

Choosing an independent ceremony led by an Independent Celebrant enables you to incorporate your personal beliefs, aspects of several faiths or none at all; at a time, day and venue that completely suits you and with no constraints on timings or format. 

A RSLI, I qualified as a BSL/English Interpreter in 2008 and have been in and around the Deaf community since the 1990’s, so can also work with you to ensure your Ceremony is ‘deaf friendly’ if required and inclusive of deaf and hearing folks too.

Whether your preferred communication is BSL, SSE, spoken English or a mix; we can work together to find the Ceremony format that suits you and your guests best.

Let’s celebrate!

Let's plan your perfect ceremony.

For fees and to discuss your ceremony without obligation please do not hesitate to get in touch!
