I am based in London, and work with couples based close by, who are having their ceremony in London or the surrounding areas. As I choose to perform only one ceremony per date with a couple or family, you can have extra peace of mind knowing I’m giving you my full and undivided attention, and not needing to rush to start, if the timings of your preparations go awry.
After contacting me, the next step is for us to meet in person for a free face to face meeting. Meeting provides an important opportunity for you to ask questions, share your ideas and for us to work out if I’m the right celebrant for you.

Working one-to-one (or one-to-two) over email, telephone, video-calling and in person; co-creating the ceremony structure; interweaving your unique story and what your relationship means to you, within your ceremony; collecting in and including any chosen readings of your choice; giuiding you in personalising your vows, writing your bespoke ceremony script, your script being revised up to 2 times and providing you with a full copy of it to keep; a ceremony rehearsal; giving guidance on any separate legalities, making that process simple and stress free; and conducting the ceremony itself.
