About me

About me

I love a good story. It doesn’t have to be an epic best seller. I like the everyday stories of people. People who, when you look at their lives, are all unique, special in some way.

As a celebrant, I get real pleasure from being able to help someone mark a special occasion in a way that is personal and memorable for them. Being trusted with such special occasions is a real privilege.

I’ve always loved words and music, further developed with a degree in English and Music. I enjoy bringing this knowledge and interest to my work as a celebrant. Before becoming a full time celebrant, I worked in the world of employee communications, where I honed my writing and presentation skills, and the ability to work alone or as part of a team to deliver professional services. I’m a good listener and open to new ideas, as well as being creative myself. So, I’m well equipped to work with you to create a bespoke and truly memorable ceremony.

I'm happy to deliver ceremonies in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire, as well as further afield if you wish.

I completed my training in 2018, studying both the National Open College Network Diploma in Celebrancy: Namings and Couples and the Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy. I studied with Civil Ceremonies Ltd, and am a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC). I was honoured to be nominated for an AOIC award in 2021.

I also hold the Chartered Institute Diploma in Internal Communications and have a BA Hons in English and Music.
