A little Something about me

About me

I’m am open-minded, honest, caring and inclusive and 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 living next to countryside means I can get out walking in nature 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 hearing all about you and your story

I’ve always enjoyed working in people-centred jobs and it’s given me a wealth of life experience and insights into the ups and downs and variety of life. I work with people at the happiest times and at some of the most difficult of times of their lives.  Life is full of ups and downs, light and shade. I like to give something to my local community and I’ve always enjoyed volunteering when I can.

Being Creative

I’ve always been a creative person, making my own clothes, making Wedding and Bridesmaid Dresses, furniture upcycling, home renovations, and making jewellery – doing anything where I can be creative makes me happy. I love baking and cooking, making jam and chutneys and I like to potter about in my garden.  Getting my hands dirty making up planters with geraniums, daisies, poppies is a simple pleasure I enjoy. I have made a small herb garden filled with herbs that I use in my cooking.  I always have a book that I’m reading and I enjoy poetry. A night out listening to live music is my idea of fun and I love Spanish and Italian wine.

Life is an Adventure

I like to have little adventures and go off on my own. I escaped from the UK to live in Sweden for a year when I was young and I met some lovely people while living there.  I lived in Crete for six months, which was a totally different experience.  More recently I’ve been spending a lot of time in Italy and I had a little adventure driving down to Italy with my dog Casper for a three-month summer stay.   I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.  For my next adventure I’d love to get a Campervan and go off somewhere.

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

Romance, Joy and even Tears

I’m a storyteller.  Everything I’ve done before helps me in my Celebrant role now. Together we’ll create the ceremony that’s just right for you.  Whether you’re planning to Celebrate a Life well-lived, a Naming Ceremony, a Wedding or a Vow Renewal, I’ll work closely with you to craft a personalised ceremony that tells your story, full of honesty, joy and maybe even some tears.  I’m looking forward to working with you to create a ceremony to remember and to officiate on your special day.
