A little Something about me

 

I’m open-minded, honest, caring, and inclusive. I love to meet and engage with people from all communities, faiths, and  lifestyles.  I love animals and my dog Casper is my best pal. He comes with me everywhere.  I love being outside in nature and l get out walking in my local greenbelt every day.  I am a quiet person by nature and enjoy my own company.  I don’t like large crowds or very crowded places.  I’m not a city lover.  Being in the countryside and seaside makes me happy.

I love helping you to celebrate your own story

It’s so important for us to celebrate and commemorate our milestone life events with our friends and family.  And we do this through ceremonies –  marking our happy, joyful and sometimes sad occasions too.

Every one of us has our own story, and I love finding out all about you and helping you to tell your story within your special Ceremony.

My own professional story is diverse and I’ve walked a meandering path. I’m a qualified teacher, I’ve worked in Local Government, I’ve lived abroad. I’ve worked in Finance and more recently I cared for teenage girls as a Foster Carer for over 10 years.

All of this has led me to where I am now.  It’s given me so much experience of life.  I’ve had a wonderful journey of discovery and learning. As a young woman I had no idea that I’d enjoy creating Ceremonies for special occasions.

 

‘’Very well written, the ceremony was relaxed and everyone thought it was lovely.’’

Being Creative

I’ve always been creative.  I like to sew, and I’ve made wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses for friends and family.  I love  upcycling projects.  I really enjoy making jewellery and doing anything where I can be creative  makes me happy.  I love baking and cooking, making jams and chutneys.

I’ve made a herb garden at home. Pottering about in my garden at home is very therapeutic.  Getting closer to nature is good for mind, body and soul, and walking with my Dalmatian Casper in our local greenbelt everyday is something I can’t do without.

I’m a reader and I always have at least one book on the go!   Live music of all kinds makes me happy.

We’re never too old for adventures

Life’s too short to hold back and I like to be a little bit adventurous and go travelling on my own. I lived in Sweden for a year when I was young which was a great time for me. Sailing around the archipelago with my new friends was one of the highlights.  I lived in Crete for six months, a totally different culture and climate!  More recently I’ve been spending a lot of time in Italy and I had a little adventure in 2016 driving down to Italy with my dog Casper for a three-month summer stay.   It’s great to experience new cultures and meet new people.  I’m slowly planning my next adventure, to down-size and buy a Campervan so that I can go exploring – watch this space.

‘’The attention to detail in crafting a truly beautiful ceremony, and her calm nature made the family’s day.’’

Romance, Joy and even Tears

You could say that I’m a storyteller.  I get to know you so that I can tell your story or the story of your family or loved one.  Together we’ll create a ceremony that’s just how you want it to be.  Whether you’re planning to Celebrate a life well-lived, a naming ceremony, a wedding or a vow renewal, I’ll collaborate closely with you to craft a personalised ceremony, that tells your story, full of honesty, joy and maybe even some tears.
