Speaking Celebrant

“After a great honeymoon in Italy and a week in England with family, we are back in Canada, where life returns to normality and we can look back with fond memories on our fantastic wedding day.  Thank you so much for such a magnificent and beautiful ceremony, which you were such an important part of. Thank you for all of the help in preparing the content of the ceremony and for the useful advice on the day itself which helped to calm any nerves.  Your relaxed and professional attitude helped to put our minds at ease, which allowed us to really enjoy the ceremony even more. A number of our guests commented on what a great job you did.  Thanks again.”

Tara & Peter

I have lived in France for 6 years but my connection to France is one of over 30 years, where I have a proven reputation facilitating great experiences. 

Choosing the right wedding celebrant is crucial to the success of your wedding day. Whether your plans are small and intimate or large and flamboyant, enjoying those special moments on the day should be incredible. It’s a huge moment when your guests gather to see you commit to your soulmate.  It’s exciting, it’s magical, and it should be an experience you’ll never forget. 

I will build a beautiful and meaningful ceremony script from scratch, working hand in hand with you to share your story with all those who have travelled so far to support you both and be at your side. Together we will develop a ceremony very specific to how you want the ambiance to ‘feel’ on the day.  I will bring together the elements that are important to you to create those cherished, forever memories of a wonderful and inspiring event. Don’t forget the words put together in the script of the ceremony, will set the mood for the celebrations that follow and that can make all the difference. 

Understanding the importance of simply getting it ‘right’, I will take you through things one step at a time and I will be sure to keep in touch and nudge you periodically when there is work to do on the ceremony. For you there will be no stress, no hurry and no surprises.

I am lucky enough to live in the gorgeous Dordogne countryside with my husband of 11 years, an area full of iconic and beautiful villages & Chateaux. This area offers some of the most stunning and spectacular wedding venues!  Whether your plans are small and intimate or large and flamboyant, for you, enjoying those special moments on the day will be an incredible start to the rest of your life journey together.  

I believe in strong, vibrant, and long-lasting relationships, and as a celebrant who truly understands the meaning of love, sharing in your experience would be a privilege and joy.
