About Me

I have always been interested in words and the sense of significance and meaning that words can bring, especially when combined with the dramatic focus of ritual.  At school, I loved drama and music, then went on to study English and Religious Studies at university. For many years, I was a secondary school teacher, and in this role was able to nurture my interest in people and acquire a genuine love and understanding of the diversity of human nature.

In 2010 I decided to pursue my personal development by undertaking a training with the OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation. That was completed in 2012 with my graduation and ordination as a celebrant and interfaith minister.

Since 2012 I have conducted countless weddings, quite a few funerals, and some baby-naming ceremonies. 

Recently I have experienced a resurgence of my original interest in religion and spirituality - an exploration of ways, means, thoughts, and, above all, practices that help us to connect with the divine, with our own deep inner selves, and perhaps most importantly, with those who are our nearest and dearest.  I particularly love chant and the sacred music of all religious traditions - both from the east and from within our western heritage.

I am based in Carlisle, conveniently placed for both the Lake District just to the south and Gretna Green to the north. I regularly travel to hold weddings in the Keswick and Penrith areas of the North Lakes or in Scotland, in Dumfries or Gretna.  Please get in touch if you are looking for a wedding celebrant in Cumbria, the North Lakes, or the South West of Scotland.
