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 helping you to celebrate your individual stories

Each of you has your own story and I enjoy telling your unique story and helping you to celebrate and commemorate a milestone life event.  Life is full of ups and downs, light and shade.  I work with you at the happiest most joyful times and also at some of the most difficult of times of your life.   Through the years I’ve gained a lot of life experience and insights into the happy and sad times of life.  I worked for Local Government for many years and also as an Independent Financial Adviser.  More recently I was a Foster Carer for over 10 years.  Whether you’re celebrating a Wedding, a Naming or saying a sad Farewell to your loved one, I’ll help you to have the best ceremony you can.

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

Being Creative

I’ve always been a creative person, I like to make my own clothes, and have made Wedding and Bridesmaid Dresses for friends and family.  I love furniture upcycling project, and designing new home renovations.  I’ve been making jewellery from natural elements for the past 5 years and doing anything where I can be creative makes me happy.  I’ve been a pescatarian for over 2 years and I love baking and cooking, and finding and trying out new and healthy recipes.   Making jam and chutneys is a great way to relax and I like to give them away to family.  I’m an animal lover and strongly believe in kindness and respect to all animals.  This is the reason I stopped eating meat.  My companion is an old dog named Casper, and we’ve enjoyed walking together in the local countryside.  These days a potter around the corner is all he can manage.

Pottering about in my garden at home, where I’ve made a small herb garden I find really therapeutic.  Getting my hands dirty making up planters with geraniums, daisies, poppies and simple English flowers is a simple pleasure I enjoy.  I have a reverence for nature and strive to live with respect for mother earth. 

I’m a big reader and I always have a book on the go!   I appreciate words and poetry.I like live music of all kinds.  A night out at a live music venue is my idea of fun.  I love Spanish and Italian wine and I’m a member of a wine club so I never run out !

We’re never too old for adventures

Being single hasn’t stopped me from having little adventures and going off on my own. I went to live in Sweden for a year when I was young which was a great time for me.  I met some lovely people and spent a week sailing around the archipelago with my new friends.  I lived in Crete for six months, which was a totally different culture and climate.  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’m planning to get a Campervan and 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

I am really a storyteller.  I work closely with 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, full of honesty, joy and maybe even some tears.  If this sounds like what you’re looking for on your special occasion let’s have an informal chat.
