IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!
I HELP PEOPLE TELL THEIR STORIES AND CELEBRATE MOMENTS THAT MATTEr.
You might be welcoming a shiny new human into the world, rejoicing the fact that you want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, creating a blended family, or celebrating an identity transition.
The traditional 'one size fits all' approach of religious or civil ceremonies isn't right for everyone. That's where I come in...
My ceremonies are all about YOU.
There’s no standard template with “[insert names here]”
That would be pretty dull, wouldn’t it?
Always written from scratch, every ceremony celebrates you:
Your relationships, your family, your friendships, your love, your values, your quirks, your hopes and dreams for the future.
I want to tell YOUR STORY in all its beautiful, unique, messy, human, technicolour glory. And, most importantly, I want to help you bring it to life in a way that feels like YOU.
ok ok, a little bit about me
My life and loves: Toddler wrangler, oldskool raver, woodland wanderer, fair-weather camper, jazz diva, session singer, Christmas obsessive, poetry lover, knitter, giraffe chaser, pie baker, martini shaker, fancy dress fanatic. Planning a themed ceremony? Bring it on!
Outside of celebrancy, I’ve worked in ‘human and cultural insight’ in the marketing industry for 20-ish years. That’s a fancy way of saying ‘professional nosy person’. I hang out with people all over the world, learn about their lives and cultures and bring their stories to life.
And I'd love to do the same for you.
I’m lucky enough to be part of the Humanist Ceremonies network. We are a group of over 500 celebrants trained and accredited by Humanists UK, a charity that promotes equality, fairness and inclusivity for all. With 125 years of history, HUK were the pioneers of non-religious funerals, weddings and naming ceremonies.
So you know you'll be in good hands!
SOUNDS GOOD! WHAT NEXT?
Pull up a comfy chair, have a rummage through the site (and my blog and Instagram too, if you've got too much time on your hands...) ask lots of questions, imagine your big day, how does it feel?
Am I the celebrant for you? I usually start with a free 'virtual cuppa' on Zoom. This is a no-obligation chat for you to tell me about your plans and ideas, ask any burning questions you might have, and see if we click.
You can also drop me an email to check availability for your date, or to ask any questions, big or small.
