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 chat in person or on zoom before you book. 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... I might just be the one for you.
In a nutshell
Things I love:
Dogs (especially spaniels); houseplants;
statement trouser suits; roller skating (badly);
yoga; Taylor Swift; finding, IDing wild mushrooms and fungi;
bird-spotting; margarita cocktails;
gigs & live music (especially indie, rock and punk);
dressing gowns; reading; crocheting; 70s aesthetics;
Schitt's Creek, The Good Place, Brooklyn 99, Grey's Anatomy,
The Office (UK only!);
the colour orange; weddings; LOVE!
Things I definitely don't love:
The Tory party; mushy peas; Donald Trump;
grey trouser suits (registrar style); 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
(I know, I know, I need a medal!)
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 congregation 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 have a
memorable and totally personalised ceremony.
I trained with Humanists UK in 2020,
and it is the best decision I've ever made!
