As you welcome in the new, celebrate a lifelong commitment or say a loving farewell, I will be your guide, sounding-board and trusted advisor. Together we will capture your personal message and create a ceremony for you to treasure forever. I have two bases just now, so whether your wedding or celebration is in Sussex in the South East or Shropshire, West Midlands, I'll be there!
I trained with the International College of Professional Celebrants and hold NOCN Level 3 qualification in Celebrancy, so you're in safe hands, and whichever ceremony you choose, it will be just right for you.
So grab a coffee, give me a call or drop me a line and let me know what you're planning, I love a chat!

Celebrations of Love
Whoever you love and however you identify,
what matters most is you love each other, right?
So let's show the world and celebrate!
Whether you're getting married, renewing your vows or marking a special anniversary, your ceremony will perfectly reflect you and your love for each other.
Your day will be beautiful,
unforgettable and unique - just like you!
I welcome people of all orientations, gender identities and relationship structures; together we can personalise the perfect celebration of your love.
Music & Readings
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ~ Plato
Music and words will touch hearts like nothing else. Transporting you to times long past and magically conjuring feelings never to be lost.
Choosing the right words and music for your special occasion could be some of the most important decisions you make. I can help you compose your loving vows and find the perfect words and music, whatever the occasion.
Kisses to the Wind Ceremonies can arrange bespoke recordings of your favourite poems, sourcing suitable musicians and voice-over artists.
Baby Naming, Blended Families & Adoption
You have a new little person in your life! You want to share the joy with everyone but you're not sure about the formality of a religious ceremony. Welcome your new addition into the family and introduce them to your friends with a beautiful baby-naming ceremony that's unique to you. Maybe you want to welcome your adopted child with the love of your family and friends around you or to share new bonds in a blended family. These celebrations will be a lasting testament of your commitment to a new life together
Tell The World!
Loud & Proud
You're proud of the person you are,
tell the world - shout it from the rooftops if you want to!
Maybe you're starting a whole new life; you've claimed your identity or transitioned to the real you and want everyone to share in your happiness.
There are all sorts of reasons you might want to say goodbye to an old life and celebrate a new one. It could be the letting-go of a past relationship; a forgive & forget divorce ceremony, with or without your ex-partner, private or elaborate.
Publicly letting go of an old life can be moving, profound and liberating. The ceremony we create together could be part of an important growing process.
A Loving Farewell
It was when arranging my own parents' funerals I decided I wanted to become a celebrant. I understand. I've been there.
It is a privilege to share this most personal of times with you.
Arranging a funeral for someone you love brings so many emotions, but a loving goodbye ceremony that honours and celebrates your loved one's life can be truly uplifting.
Funeral ceremonies take many forms.
Some are loud and joyous others are quietly solemn.
Together we will create the ceremony that says
goodbye in the most perfect way for
your loved one and your family.
You may have started planning your ceremony or have no idea where to begin, but I will be there to help guide you and together we will create a beautiful tribute
and a truly loving goodbye.
Mini Ceremonies &
All sorts of delights!
There are many lovely mini ceremonies
we can include in your day.
Bringing togetherness and involvement for well-wishers these ceremonies will be remembered forever by you, your family and your guests.
Whether you choose a traditional hand-tying,
ring warming, hand blessing, rose ceremony or even a beer ceremony, it will be meaningful, memorable and
tailor-made. We can even create one especially for you.
So, Memory Catchers?
Did you know I'm also a professional Oral Historian?
