About this Wedding Celebrant

Hello, it’s lovely to meet you! Welcome and 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. I’m sure I can help!

I love writing warm, loving, sincere 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 really is all about you, and allows you to free your imagination – 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 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 found a wonderful training course and became a Wedding Celebrant!

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  offer ceremonies in Berlin and Germany too!

I’m based in London and Potsdam, which is a Unesco World Heritage site, which has stunningly 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!

It’s important that you make the right choice and find a Celebrant you feel you can connect with. So feel free to contact me just to ask questions and let’s get to know each other !

A personal hello from me! 

Hi there!  Thanks for getting this far on my page!

As an Army brat I moved many times, and so travel and a love of meeting meeting are in my DNA!  I just love being a Celebrant, not just because I am a “people person” and love everything about romance and weddings, meeting people and listening to their stories but because I can create so much choice.  It’s more than a job.   I did have a long career in public education and employment,  where I was able to help others progress or move towards their own goals, giving me me a great deal of job satisfaction.

I seem to spend my spare time outdoors and everything I see has a “will it work as a wedding venue” theme to it!  I always loved stories – and the cinema!  My favourite films are Casablanca, and Sleepless in Seattle – love stories that transcend time, and distance!

My mum was German, and I was born in Lippstadt where my dad was stationed.  He met mum at a dance.  Their “song” was Strangers in the Night”  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!  I am known for binge watching at least 5 different TV Series!  Faves have been The Killing, Frontier, Outlander, Doctor Foster….. I could go on!! 🙂  Well, that’s enough about me – feel free to get in touch and ask any questions, – I’m here to help!
