My motivation behind becoming a celebrant is pretty simple – I got sick of sitting through boring ceremonies!
If I look back and think of the countless ceremonies I’ve been to outside of the odd exception they were mostly a bit dated and drab (sorry guys!) I wanted to help the odd exception become the norm, to see more people actually having fun during their ceremony (god forbid!) and to challenge people with the notion of what a modern ceremony can be.
My friends would describe me as being honest, passionate, vivacious, committed and a little bit crazy (I know because I asked them when I was writing this page!) But above everything I like to bring a sense of fun in everything that I do because life is too short, who knows what’s around the corner so live for and in the moment. I love what I do and to be able to share in one of the most important moments in people’s lives is an honour and a privilege that I do not take lightly.
Outside of my role as a celebrant, I treasure time spent with my family (hubby Steve, little monster Scarlett and how could I not mention our Frenchie, Vegas). I love my football (come on Chelsea… and St Pats!), I love all sports really. When not in amongst all things weddings, I love spending time with family and friends, knocking back a few beers and contemplating on how I should find more time to exercise. I am grateful for the opportunities that I’ve been given. Life is good.
