all about... ME!

It is important that you choose a celebrant you click with, and who feels like a friend. That's why we will always have an online chat before you book.
I'll readily admit that I'm not for everyone!

But if you want someone who is a bit extra, has some out-there ideas, and loves creating ceremonies where everyone has a fabulous time...

then I just might be the one for you.

In a nutshell


Dogs (especially spaniels). Houseplants. Statement trouser suits or jumpsuits. The two stinky boys I have to live with (my husband and my dog). Yoga. Taylor Swift. Mushrooms. Foraging. Bird-spotting. Margarita cocktails. Gigs & live music. (Yard Act, F+TM, Self Esteem, Pulp and Boygenius are my 2023 live music highlights). My dressing gown. Watching snooker. Reading. Crocheting and embroidery. Anything with a 70s vibe. The colour orange. My job. Weddings. Canapes. Celebratory glasses of fizz. LOVE!

Things I definitely don't love:

The Tory party. Mushy peas. Being hungry but not knowing what I want to eat. Donald Trump. The patriarchy. Grey skirt suits. Being cold. Boring wedding ceremonies. 


I have a degree in English Language and Linguistics from the University of Sheffield, and for around 10 years I taught English in Secondary schools. (Yeah, I don't know how I did it either tbh).

I found myself increasingly disillusioned with the current UK education system - and of course the never-ending marking and planning - so I decided to start a career doing something lovely instead!

I've discovered that SO MANY of my English teaching skills are useful for developing and delivering ceremonies. My knowledge of literature means I can recommend readings or poetry for your occasion if that’s your kind of thing.

I am obviously totally comfortable speaking in front of groups of people: if I can manage a class of 30 unruly teenagers then your wonderful crowd of loving friends and family will be a doddle!

And I also know great techniques for writing, tailoring and structuring the content of your celebration to ensure that you and your guests experience a memorable and totally personalised ceremony.

I trained with Humanists UK in 2020, and 2024 will see my conduct my 100th ceremony. It is the best job in the world and the best decision I've ever made!
