About this Wedding Celebrant

Hello, it’s lovely to meet you! Congratulations if you are planning your wedding and  thinking about having a more personal ceremony that’s full of meaning and represents you and your beliefs and values, and tells your story.

New logoI love being asked to create warm, loving, sincere and totally personal Wedding, Vow Renewal and Naming Ceremonies.    Choosing me as your Wedding Celebrant means there are simply no restrictions on timing, format, content and location, plus your ceremony is totally tailored to include your ideas, values and beliefs. It’s just all about you and allows you total freedom and flexibility – for example children can be included too, giving them gifts to exchange or perhaps involve them and your immediate family members in a Sand or Unity Candle Ceremony that symbolises the bonding of your family.  Take a look at  my Blog Page to find out more!

I am really proud that two of my recent wedding ceremonies have been blogged two of the top 10 Wedding Bloggers, – the fabulous Rock My Wedding Website, here and  on Love My Dress, which you can read here.  Two gorgeous couples I was proud and honoured to create ceremony for.

So, how and why did I decide to become a Wedding Celebrant?

I spent many years in Adult Education and Training, working with adults and young people, mentoring and public speaking and was looking for a new career passion ! My lightbulb moment came after being a guest at a Celebrant-led wedding in Australia, and marvelling at what a truly personalised Ceremony can feel and look like!  In 2011 I trained as a  Marriage and Family Celebrant with the UK College of Celebrancy.

For the past 7 years I’ve had the pleasure of creating and conducting over 150 wedding ceremonies in some of the most beautiful locations and venues in London, Greater London, Home Counties and also now offer ceremonies in Potsdam too – the ancient home of Prussian Kings and Emperors,  and a fabulous destination for wedding ceremonies and elopements!

Potsdam has many beautiful romantic outdoor parks and castles! Take a look at some of the stunning locations and imagine yourself saying your wedding vows here!

As a native German speaker I can create ceremonies in both English/Englisch and German/Deutsch,  or a mixture of these two languages, giving you lots of opportunities to include new customs and readings and make your ceremony extra special!

I love being a Celebrant – I am a real “people person” and love everything about romance and weddings, meeting people and listening to their stories!  My favourite films are Casablanca, and Sleepless in Seattle – love stories that transcend time, and distance!  Getting back in touch with my German roots has been amazing, visiting beautiful Berlin and Potsdam, as well as indulging in the German afternoon custom of “kaffee und kuchen” – coffee and cake!  Much to my husband’s amusement, down time is spent watching virtually all the action/romance/historical/crime and fantasy series that Netflix has to offer when time allows!
