Why I became a Celebrant...

I moved to London 33 years ago, telling my family I'd be gone six months.  

I now reside in Hertfordshire and am blessed to be share my life with my partner, my two amazing boys and a handful of awesome friends who fill each and every day with love and laughter.

Following the death of my dear father in 2013, I was inspired to offer my voice as a funeral singer.  

I felt totally at home.  As a professional singer, I'd always used my voice to connect emotionally

with people, so training to become a celebrant seemed a natural progression.

Nancy Bowers, an extraordinary funeral arranger, recognised my potential as a Funeral Celebrant.

A year later, I'd completed my training as a Civil Celebrant and the rest, as they say ... is history.

Whilst I have a particular passion for supporting bereaved families and celebrating life, 

it brings me such joy to officiate weddings & family celebrations in Hertfordshire & Greater London.

​Being a Wedding Celebrant and a Funeral Celebrant is something I love in equal measure.

In love.  In Life.  In Service.
