I am an experienced, friendly, professional wedding celebrant and I write and conduct beautiful 'bespoke' wedding ceremonies, for couples looking to hold their ceremony in the Algarve or the South West of England. I work with couples who want the freedom to say ‘I do’ in their own personal style in their dream location, at a beachside hotel, in a romantic garden, at a pretty vineyard….the choices are endless! 


I am approachable and whatever your wishes, I can create a ceremony with you that allows you to express your love and dreams for your future together. I can also offer suggestions on unity ceremonies, promises, readings, music and the choreography, so everyone knows where to be and when! My aim is to make the whole process of creating your personal ceremony both enjoyable and relaxed.

It's great if we can meet face to face, but if it's not possible Skype or Facetime are a good option. We can keep in touch throughout the process and I’m always happy to answer any questions that you may have along the way.


On the day itself, I want you to feel at ease, so I will be at your venue with enough time to have a chat with you, your wedding co-ordinator and musicians. I am an experienced public speaker and professionally trained actress (ArtsEd, London), so I will conduct your ceremony in a calm professional way, setting the pace so you are comfortable, when it is your turn, to say your own words and promises. So feel relaxed, I am used to conducting ceremonies to an audience of family and friends!


I also offer a complimentary commemorative certificate to sign, which is great for photographs and a lovely reminder of your day.




It is important for you to understand that I am not a registrar, so I cannot marry you legally, please have a look at my legalities page for more information. I also write and conduct vow renewal and naming ceremonies and I am a member of the ‘Fellowship of Professional Celebrants’
