About Me

I am the celebrant who can fulfill your wedding dreams, and provide exactly the ceremony of which you have always dreamed.   I am able to tailor-make your ceremony so that it is the event that everyone will always remember.   Whether you’re LGBTQI, straight, or anything in between, I am happy to accommodate your every wish.  I am an experienced and confident public presenter, as well as an authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant.  In my other life I have worked in a number of senior positions  in the public sector, as well as voluntary work in the community.  In addition, I have qualifications in social work, criminology and music, and I am a Churchill Fellow, and a Justice of the Peace.  

Contact me for an obligation-free chat at any time.  I am happy to travel.  Let’s get the ball rolling!
