The ‘on duty’ me…

For the last nine years, I have spent pretty much all of my waking day, doing something related to weddings. If  I’m not actually working at a wedding as a marriage celebrant, then I’ll be meeting up with delicious couples and talking about their weddings. And when I’m not writing scripts for their ceremonies, then I’m writing magazine features for top publications and blog posts for some of the top wedding bloggers in the world. And then when I’m not doing all of that I’m busy writing posts and hoping to inspire all of the readers on this here blog. Hot damn, I’m one busy lady.

So I think I can safely say that I know a thing or two about weddings and wedding ceremonies.

So how did I get here? Well, I started my career in public speaking as a BBC reporter and newsreader, where I also honed my writing and communication skills too. Reading the news can be quite morose, so it’s lovely to now use my voice for something much more rewarding and of course, joyous!

As well as being a ceremony expert, I am very good at looking quite ridiculous in most photos.

After living (and marrying in not quite the way you’d expect!) in beautiful Mexico and working for a wedding company there, I got to spend my time with some pretty amazing couples who knew from the outset that their ceremony was ‘their ceremony.’ I have never been so inspired. Enough so, that on returning back to Europe, I knew I had to help soon-to-be wedded couples to realize the importance of shaping and personalizing their wedding ceremony. And so here I am. Nine years, circa four hundred weddings and a few celebrity nuptials later, still having the pleasure of marrying couples from all over the world during their destination weddings in Spain. And most importantly, still loving every minute of what I do.

My blog is my way of sharing my knowledge and experience with couples who want to have their ceremony, their way but aren’t 100% sure of how to go about doing it.
