For many many years I knew, that once I retired, I would become a marriage celebrant. In 2009 (a good 16 years before I reach my envisaged retirement) I realised that if I didn’t start the process now, maybe I never would. Having missed out on being the celebrant at the wedding of several of my friends I thought ‘carpe diem’, and signed up for this wonderful part of my life! I love ritual and believe that a ritual performed well; that leaves people feeling listened to, respected and valued; enables the participants to take each step on their journey with a little more confidence; knowing that the foundation has been set solidly with them. Ritual allows us to recognise the significance of stages in our lives with honour, respect and celebration. It is my aim to ensure that those that I work with create with me a ceremony and ritual that will stay with them as a pleasant memory for many years to come. I aim to create a ceremony that is culturally correct; ensuring that right customs, presentations and inclusions are a part of your ceremony. I am happy to work in a tradition manner and quite happy play outside the box. The choice is ultimately yours.
