When I was growing up I never said “I want to be a Marriage Celebrant!” I was fearful of public speaking back then. But from the moment I stood in front of my first couple, all my fears just melted away. I suddenly knew that, for me, this was not just a job - I had found my purpose. Creating a beautiful and memorable day for a couple truly makes me happy.
I have had the privilege of being a Marriage Celebrant since 24th December 2014. My business grew more quickly than I ever anticipated, allowing me the wonderful opportunity to become a Full Time Celebrant in 2016.
I know what I do makes a real difference during a special time in people’s lives. And being told at the end of a ceremony that it is obvious to people that I love what I do, is my warmest reward. I am also a celebrant for funerals, which is another time in people's lives when I know that I can provide the great care and support they need.
As a mother of two teenagers, being a role model to them is also very important. They see me doing what I love and returning from work filled with happiness rather than stress. I know it will encourage them to find love in their chosen careers and in their relationships.
