I first took an interest in the role of a celebrant after arranging my father’s funeral back in 2001. I knew my father would not have wanted a religious affair so I set out to find what options were available.
Since then I have done much travelling, living and working in Lincolnshire, England, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, dividing my time between all three to spend time with my husband and two grown up children. I am also now enjoying the role of being grandmother.
I have worked in Education in all three of the above countries in a variety of different roles including Home School Liaison Officer, Attendance Officer and for the last 8 years have been teaching English as a second language to students from all over the globe.
When I am not working, I am involved with the local community theatre group in Dubai. My latest role saw me take on the role of Ms Prism in Oscar Wilde’s, The Importance of Being Earnest. I once took my husband to an audition and he now seems to get cast more than I do!
I am also taking golf lessons and hope to be able to challenge my husband in a few months time!
I have left a ceremony on too many occasions feeling like something was missing. It is this that has made me want to reach out and help people to find the right words, and convey the right message, which I believe is of the upmost importance and I would be privileged to help you and your loved ones fulfil this in whatever capacity and ceremony.
After all, it is your day so should be carried out your way.
