“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by every moment that takes your breath away.” (Anon)
Life truly is full of so many extraordinary, beautifully profound events.
Some are bright. Weddings, christenings, vow renewals: days full of joy, laughter, excitement. Of smiles stretching ear to ear.
Others are harder. Funerals and life celebrations: days of reflection, tears and rememberence. Of reminiscing and glasses raised to a dearly missed loved one.
But it's what they have in common that touches the heart. Both are occasions fuelled by beautiful memories - whether you are making them, or recalling them. As your celebrant, then - whatever the event - I am dedicated to helping you and those who share in the day you are planning, to be warmed to the heart by the memories in which you share in together.
Check out the information below for information regarding celebrant services and pricing, as well as some useful links to other relevant businesses and service providers that might help you in the planning process.

Planning to celebrate the birth of your child with a naming day? Or perhaps you're looking to have a beautiful vow renewal ceremony to celebrate your love and life together so far.

One of the hardest things in the world is having to organise the technical side of things when a loved one passes away. From the casket to the order of service to the flowers and everything in between: there is not a single process that should be approached with anything other than the utmost compassion and care.
I will support families to bring together a service that honours and celebrates your loved one's life in best possible way; and helps you to remember and farewell them with dignity, affection and grace.
Catering. Event design. Venue hire. Travel. Accomodation. Events like these - in particular weddings and civil ceremonies - can involve a huge amount of work and consultation before you finally get to enjoying the big day.
So whichever step in the journey you're up to, take some of the stress out of the process, kick back with a cup of tea or a cold one and check out some of these wonderful local businesses and venues as you plan your event.
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
― Louis de Bernières, Captain Corelli's Mandolin
