A little bit about me…

“I believe that life is for living to its fullest and each day is a gift to be celebrated”

I’m a wife of thirty nine years (I know I can’t believe it either!), mum of four wonderful children and grandma (known as Gigi) to five little crackers! Although I’ve lived in Aberdeenshire for the past 37 years; I’m originally from Liverpool with Irish roots and I now live in France. 🙂 

How would I describe myself?

I’m a very positive person (the glass is not only half full but I can refill it at any point!) Being a Scouser, I have an active sense of humour and enjoy a good laugh.

I love to meet new people and listen to their stories. I also love travelling and experiencing new places. My most ambitious trip was to the Galapagos Islands where we went scuba diving with white-tipped reef sharks.(They’re harmless.) And in 2017 we traveled around the world crossing the International Date Line. That meant having traveled all day, we then arrived in Hawaii before we’d left Australia!! Very strange but so cool.

I don’t have lots of free time but when I do, I like to swim or go to the cinema. I adore eating out but also enjoy cooking for my pals. But my favourite pass time is spending time with my family. My nuclear-powered grandchildren keep me on my toes and after an afternoon at the park or in the swimming pool I’m ready to read a good book to them with a cup of hot chocolate and then quietly collapse. x

“Your ceremony – Your way.”

I know it’s important to have a celebrant you feel comfortable with, so I offer you a free initial chat, using Skype/WhatsApp or face-to-face. This is an opportunity for you to ask all your questions and I’ll answer them as openly and honest as I can. There’s no hard sell – that’s not my style. It’s just a chance for us to meet, get to know each other a little and me to find out more about your wedding plans.

I feel it’s always best to talk, so drop me a line using the contact page outlining one or two days and times you’re available and we can arrange a chat.

I became a celebrant five years ago and have conducted hundreds of services and ceremonies throughout Scotland and France. This year, I began working as an English Celebrant in France, helping people to celebrate all the important stages in their lives, from birth to death and everything in between. Celebrating the good things in our lives strengthens our relationships and creates wonderful shared memories.

I have very high standards – there’ll be no slacking here! Joking apart, I work hard to make sure each client receives a quality and professional service. It’s important to me that every ceremony is the best it can be. I trained through the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, in partnership with The UK College of Celebrancy (founded by one of the first Celebrants in the UK, Terri Shanks) and I’m bound to the Fellowship’s Code of Ethics and have full Limited Liability Insurance.
