Celebrant since 2015

My background, is in events and entertainment. Especially customised events.

So this is the approach I take with prospective wedding couples. I aim to try and find as much out about you guys, what you want out of the wedding, what your guests expect out of the wedding and then we collaborate to come up with something that's unique, memorable and helps you celebrate your special occasion.

Along the way, I'll try to bring my experience to the process with ideas and knowledge of what works and what doesn't.

I like to think of the wedding ceremony as an event in itself, not in so much as it needs to be super complex or elaborate but that it has the same thought go into it as the guest list, the dress etc. I've been to a number of weddings along the way where the ceremony has been a bit of an afterthought and it's kind of the important bit.

I've got a background in performance but that doesn't mean I want to make the ceremony about me. I'm married - I've had my day, it's about you guys and what you want. But that does mean that pretty much nothing is off limits! If you want to try something a little different I'm fine with that but I'm also not about forcing you into anything that makes you uncomfortable or isn't you. In fact I'm not about forcing you into anything - I've seen enough weddings happen to know that everybody has helpful opinions they want to share and I'm not about to add to that. I want you to have a day that is full of great memories and for the ceremony to be a big part of that!
