Hi there!
Straight off the bat, it's not about me. Your ceremony will be bespoke to you.
But, just so you have a bit of background on the person you're entrusting your special occasion to, here's my brief story.

I'm married to Chris and we have a very cheeky son, Walter. I was born and bred in the North West of the United Kingdom and have Filipino heritage.

I'm an award-winning TV director and vision mixer - with nearly 15 years experience with ITV and BBC - I worked on regional news, network sport and major programmes such as the Commonwealth Games, Match of the Day Extra and Wimbledon Sportsday. I was also the director who launched BBC Sport’s first news bulletins since moving to Media City in Salford. So, you might say, I know how to put on a show! I have acting credits too, so I feel at ease in front of a crowd, while I've recently dipped my toe into the world of coding, constructing my business website myself.

But, after becoming a mum, I decided I wanted more. I yearned for a new career which would allow me to help others, while also giving me the flexibility to raise my son. After retraining with the Fellowship of Celebrants, I was hooked.
Now I am directing again. Giving brides and grooms their cues and broadcasting to more intimate audiences in halls, pubs, hotels, golf clubs, barns and even in people’s own homes.

I am a modern and open-minded celebrant, with a goal to encourage my customers to think outside of the box when it comes to their wedding, vow renewal or baby naming ceremony and to make their special occasion truly their own.

Thank you for considering me to handle your ceremony. It would be my honour to be part of it.
