The celebration of love and commitment

is a joy to share.






I work with you to create exactly the ceremony that you would like, with no restrictions on what is included or where it is held, at your choice of venue indoor or outdoor. My aim is to help create a ceremony that expresses who you are as individuals and as a couple and to honour the love that you share. Whether you come from the same or different religious traditions or backgrounds, are spiritual but nor religious, or find your sense of meaning in life from community, justice, nature, making a difference or any other aspect of life, I can reflect your beliefs and whatever you hold sacred in the ceremony. Any cultural or religious roots can be woven into the ceremony along with your individual sense of style, beauty and meaning.


I support you throughout your journey of making this deep commitment, from reviewing what marriage means to you to creating your wedding vows, helping you to keep connected with what is at the heart of this special day and the beginning of your new life together.


Whether a simple minimalist ceremony focusing on the core of the love between you or a feast for the senses with music, readings, poetry and song I create a ceremony that feels authentic for you. Alongside the traditional exchange of rings I can incorporate other rituals for you as a couple or for your families or other beloved guests to join in as they bring their blessings, love and support for you both. These could include hand blessing or handfasting, blessing of rings by the guests, lighting of candles by each of your families or many other possibilities.  


I also offer vow renewal ceremonies and ceremonies to honour special anniversaries.
