Yorkshire Wedding Celebrant

ABOUT ME!!

A BRIEF BACKGROUND HISTORY OF THIS YORKSHIRE CELEBRANT!

I live in York with my husband and son. I moved to York from the Midlands to go to University where I studied History of Art. During this time, I found Lee (my now husband) in one of the seedy student bars we frequented! After completing my BA, for a time I went into Conference and Wedding Organising before then delving into the world of Theatre Management! This saw me having a blinding time working at various Fringe festivals and also massive performance arenas. I took a couple of years out however to travel the world and enjoy myself before coming back to study an MA in Arts Management. I then worked for many years in Theatre Management which I loved.

After becoming a Mum to our son Ernie, I went down the route of self-employment. I have been working as an Independent Celebrant since 2015 after performing a wedding ceremony for my bestie and discovering that I bloody loved doing it! (She is still my bessie too!)

Yorkshire Singing Celebrant

A SINGING CELEBRANT!

One of my other hobby-jobs is singing. I’ve been in many bands over the years covering rock, pop, jazz, blues, soul and various genres of music.

I absolutely love live music and when it is used in wedding ceremonies, then it brings such a wonderful vibrancy and sense of community to a service. I am able to arrange musicians to be involved in your ceremony at an extra cost or you can provide your own.

Either way, I will be more than ecstatic to be involved with the music and the singing so that we can really raise the roof and go to town with the tunes!!!
