About me...

All those years, I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up and now – finally – I’ve decided!

Life as a celebrant allows me to make the most of my language, public speaking and performance skills, at the same time as meeting lots of lovely people; hearing the wonderful stories they have to tell and helping them celebrate love: for each other, for children or for a loved one they have lost.

I’m Sussex-born and bred and have lived here all my life (apart from while I was at university). I worked for many years in the public sector, first locally and then commuting to London, although I did manage to start working from home quite a while before Covid forced it upon everyone.

My first love outside work was always singing and performing and I’ve sung solo and with choirs at lots of weddings and funerals, so that – along with plenty of experience of giving presentations for work – means that large audiences hold no fear for me (especially as wedding ‘audiences’ tend not to ask difficult questions!).

So what else can I tell you about myself? Married with two grown-up step-children; cat and general nature lover; shoe addict; into musical theatre and classic films; always meaning to start a diet/exercise regime, but rarely get very far and have only once ever made it all the way through dry January (I know – pathetic!). Love travelling (currently obsessed with Italy); much prefer eating to cooking and stand absolutely no chance of ever being described as a domestic goddess!

So that’s me in a nutshell, but – joking apart – I consider it a real privilege to help people mark special milestones in their lives and with so much unhappiness in the world, it is incredibly rewarding to be able to spend my time celebrating life – present or past – and concentrating on the good things about people, as an antidote to all the bad.

I love what I do and I’d love to help make your event as special and unique as possible. Give me a call and let’s talk about what you’re looking for.
