I stumbled upon this fantastic career path while awaiting the birth of a granddaughter, whose mum knew that she wanted a ceremony to welcome this new life into our family but didn’t want to follow the religious church christening model. And we found naming ceremonies, created by independent celebrants as an option. And when I found out about the opportunity to create wedding ceremonies, too – well, I was sold!
I am an independent celebrant based near Oxford. I believe in three simple words: love is love and with that in mind I create heartfelt, personal ceremonies for couples.
Since my training in 2015, I have had the privilege of creating ceremonies as diverse as the day is long – from high-end stately homes to relaxed, laid back ceremonies at a couple’s home. Each and every one is given the same treatment from me – tailored to fit your requirements, written from scratch to encapsulate your very ideals and personalities, thoughts and words.
My answer has to be that very first meeting with an excited couple, the prospect of being able to work with you at one of the best times in your lives, starting to get to know you, the time when I can show you how special your ceremony can be made by adding elements that will mean so much to you, reflecting so well your personalities, interests and beliefs. Yes, I’m a people person.
