I'm a civil celebrant (NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples (RQF)) and a funeral celebrant (Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy), qualified and insured to deliver a whole range of ceremonies for special occasions.

As a former BBC journalist, I'm a skilled public speaker and copywriter and every ceremony I deliver is professionally written and conducted.

Whether you want it quite simple, traditional, or something more unusual and quirky, I can help you plan a ceremony individual to you, so it’s exactly how you want it to be.

I’m based in Jersey in the Channel Islands, but I’m able to travel to the UK, or abroad, to conduct a ceremony. I can also work with you if you live in the UK, or overseas, and want to plan your ceremony in Jersey.


The civil celebration ceremonies I offer are driven by your wishes, beliefs and values.


With the exception of churches, chapels, synagogues or mosques, ceremonies can be held wherever you want (as long as you have permission!); indoors or outdoors and whether your chosen venue holds an approved marriage licence, or not.


Each ceremony is unique to you and your occasion and can be made up of as many different components as you’d like. Content can be finely tailored to match your wishes and I’ll prepare a script for you to review beforehand.


You may want some religious content, you may not. Music might feature, as well as other symbolic actions such as candle lighting, tree planting, or balloon releasing, for example.


Poetry and prose can be included; read by me, family members or friends or prepared by you for me to read on your behalf.


Whatever you want is possible and I’ll work with you in order to make your occasion as personal and memorable as it can be.

Marking a union of love should be something personal, unique and special to you and a civil ceremony ensures this. With my help, you can create the most appropriate and meaningful ceremony tailored for you.


I can conduct a range of ceremonies for you and your partner whether it be a wedding celebration, same sex/civil partnershipcommitment or vow renewal ceremony.


Naming ceremonies can be a great way to welcome new children into the family, whether they are babies or youngsters, or step, foster or adopted children.


A celebration of life, or a civil funeral is an alternative to a more traditional funeral service incorporating a little, or no, religion or other spiritual and symbolic elements, as desired.
