quote marksI have been passionate about celebrancy since I was appointed in 1995. I celebrated my 25th anniversary of appointment in March 2020.

It's been an inspiring and rewarding journey working side by side with many couples and families creating personal, unique and heartwarming ceremonies that have touched not only the couple but everyone present.

Even though we need to 'stay at home' and cannot hug and kiss our dearest friends and family we can come together online, with a quality of deep presence, attention and care to honour the 'touchpoints' in our lives.

It's a time for deep listening, stepping into the new to affirm our connection, and hold close our vulnerability and courage.

We can do this together!

Investment and contributions

During this time of great change, and social distancing there are many challenges that arise within us, personally and globally. Our opportunity to connect is vital especially in times of loss and grief and also in times of celebration. If you are in need of a celebrant yet are unable to meet this cost then please feel free to email to discuss your ceremony and my availability.

If you would like to invest in projects and ceremonies that are dedicated to creating connection, compassion, care and presence, please contribute below.

Your contribution will support families unable to afford the cost of a celebrant, the actors (for the ceremony role play), IT Support, technical staff and administration staff who are part of my dedicated team. Thank you.
