I am an accredited Humanist celebrant living in Southampton and performing ceremonies all over Hampshire, Dorset and beyond.
I perform Naming ceremonies, Weddings, Renewal of Vow Ceremonies and Funeral Services. I look forward to working with you to create a unique and personal ceremony, whatever your needs.
My belief system is built around the one life we have and the best way it can be lived, ethically and fully, and without hindrance to others. Because I believe firmly that we should live life well, I have been concerned to find the best ways for individuals, for couples and families to celebrate the key events in their lives. This has meant using my prior experience and skills to assist in writing and delivering ceremonies that best capture what matters most to them. My work in education has involved listening closely to the needs of others.
For more than 25 years I have worked in education, firstly as a teacher, now as a lecturer in film. My day job is a lecturer in British and European Cinema to visiting undergraduates. This has developed from a longer career that started out teaching English and was later about training English teachers for schools. I read widely, love literature and music and am happy to advise or support the needs of those who have come to ask for my assistance. Standing in front of a room of people is part of what I do all the time so I have good communication skills.
I am part of a network of BHA celebrants who operate in the south of England. We support each other to provide a high quality, reliable and professional service in tune with your needs.
