Since proudly receiving my certificate in training from The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants 6 yrs ago I have written and officiated at numerous very individual and creative ceremonies. Whether the ceremony is indoors, small and intimate or outdoor and large with the wind blowing, everyone tells me how clearly and well my voice carries, and that I sound like Judi Dench!
I am able to use inspiration from my very diverse career which has covered a wide area of work. I first worked in television and also trained with the Samaritans, spent several years farming, ran my own design company and have been involved and chairman for many formal public speaking roles, whilst also bringing up my family.
Every couple and family I write with are unique and special and I love to help them expand their ideas so that the ceremony includes everything they want or maybe never knew they wanted. Together we explore the possibility of including members of the family and friends into the ceremony, which can sometimes be a very healing aspect and often the most surprising people come forward wanting to contribute and show their love.
Every family have their story and I feel it is my job to encourage and help them explore it so they experience the very best in creating a unique and warm ceremony.
