Love is a game that two can play and both win!
Perhaps you would like to hear my voice?
Having recently been a guest at a number of fantastic celebrant led weddings, I decided that I wanted to help couples and families to design and enjoy a truly unique and joyous day.
I trained and qualified for my NOCN Diploma in Celebrancy, finishing with a residential training week in the beautiful High Gate House in Northampton.
I have worked in financial services for 40 years, living in both the UK and overseas, where I have learnt the importance of being a “people” person and developing great communication skills. This helps me to connect with people and understand their needs.
I am married (twice!) with a teenage son, chickens and two dogs. I currently live in Belfast but am happy to travel to any location to provide the ceremony you want, whenever and wherever you want it.
I am professional, friendly, positive and 100% confident that I can help you to design your Perfect Day.
Important Legal Note
In an ever changing world, many people want to celebrate their special celebration in a bespoke and personal ceremony with family and friends.
Perhaps a religious service or a brief registry office service is not what you really want?
I am an independent fully trained Civil Celebrant who will help you to design exactly the ceremony you want. This may be a wedding ceremony, civil partnership ceremony, a renewal of vows, baby naming or commitment ceremony.
You can choose the day, the time and the place,
You can choose the ceremony content, the vows, personal readings or prayers.
I will work with you to deliver the ceremony you want for your Perfect Day.
Perfect Day ceremonies; Your Day – Your Way
Everything is clearer when you are in love
Wedding & Civil Partnership ceremonies
More and more couples are celebrating their special day with a bespoke celebration ceremony as they feel that a religious church service or a brief registry office service is not what they want.
Whether you want to celebrate your marriage or your civil partnership, a celebrant led ceremony will let you create your perfect day exactly as you want it. Shouldn’t everyone have the same choices?
Normally a couple will complete the legal registration of their marriage or civil partnership a couple of days or weeks beforehand and then focus on having a fabulous day celebrating their union with family and friends.
You can choose where and when you want your ceremony and we can work together to agree the actual content and who you want to be involved. Your ceremony can be on any day of the week and at any time to suit you.
It can be in a forest or on a beach; in your family garden or your favourite hotel or restaurant. The choice is all yours. I will work with you to help you to create your perfect day without the restrictions that can apply with church and registry office weddings.
Wedding and Civil Partnership Ceremonies enable you to share your love and commitment with your friends and family. You can include traditional, religious or cultural elements in your ceremony. Couples often like to write their own promises and vows to each other or sometimes need a little help. I can help, if required, by providing beautiful and appropriate readings and poetry to help you say what you really want to say to your partner.
Perhaps you would like to light a unity candle together, remember someone who cannot be with you or have your rings “warmed” by all those who love you? I can arrange whatever you would like to do to make your day truly unique and right for you. Your ceremony should be a true reflection of yourselves and your love for each other.
Renewal of Vows
Perhaps you want to mark a special anniversary or you have been through a tough time or illness and want to renew your vows in front of family and friends. I will work with you to design exactly what you would like included in your ceremony.
This is a wonderful way to refresh your vows and look forward to the next stage of your life and relationship together.
There are many reasons why a formal legal marriage may not be suitable for a couple. A commitment ceremony gives you the opportunity to celebrate your love for each other in front of family and friends.
This is a declaration to everyone of your ongoing commitment to each other even though you may not have completed the legal steps.
If a christening or baptism within a church religious service is not right for you, then a Naming ceremony is the perfect way to welcome and introduce your child to your family and friends. This can be designed for a new born baby, an adopted child or for welcoming step children into their new family. It is also a perfect option for single parents raising a child on their own.
I will meet with you to understand your personal situation and requirements and personally help you to design the right ceremony to ensure you have a perfect day.
I can help you to choose or write your own promises and readings which may be religious or spiritual or just personal. I will ensure that your family and friends are involved as you wish.
Naming ceremonies can be held indoors or outdoors whenever and wherever you want and are a fabulous way for you to celebrate such an important addition to your family.
Please get in touch to discuss how I can help you to design your perfect day.
