I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.  I completed my training with the organisation in July 2011.  I have full Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance.


F.P.C. Celebrants have received specialised training...

In ceremony writing and performance. We are the specialists, and our training has focused exclusively on crafting the right kind of service for you.


F.P.C. Celebrants listen, and are truly interested in their clients' stories...

I will listen to your personal stories, cultural, religious, family or ethnic traditions, goals and beliefs.  I may suggest readings, organisation, poetry and music based on what I hear.  I will then create a ceremony, that is truly unique to you, in collaboration with you. You own the ceremony, although I will bring my own particular writing style and personalilty into its development and performance.  Every word of the ceremony is approved by you.


F.P.C. Celebrants provide unlimited consultation with their clients...

I try to provide at least one face-to-face meeting to discuss your ceremony.  However, if distance is an obstacle, I Skype, email, Tweet and am on Facebook, ensuring we can stay in easy contact in the lead up to your big day.


F.P.C. Celebrants rehearse...

I do not merely show up at a ceremony and read.  A rehearsal ensures a smooth ceremony and calms everyones nerves.

Celebrants conduct the ceremony at a time and place of your choosing...

Remember, anytime, any place, anywhere.  This is the ceremony of your dreams.


F.P.C. Celebrants take on some ceremony co-ordinating functions...

This may include creating a cue sheet for the musicians, writing out processional instructions, touching base with the staff or photographers, to highlight any special aspects of the ceremony, or trouble-shooting any issues.


F.P.C. Celebrants are professional...

I am timely, know the details of the ceremony set up, can handle last-minute changes, and I will perform your ceremony with warmth and sincerity.

I am there to offer support to you, your family and other participants, such as readers.

I am there to answer your questions.


F.P.C. Celebrants provide special extras...

I create a keepsake ceremony for you as a gift.  I have my own P.A. system for the ceremony, if required, because, if we can't be heard as you speak the most important words of your life, the ceremony is a failure for you and for me.



I look forward to working with you, and for you.
