You don’t need to be a writer to create a great ceremony, but it helps. Belinda and Brian can certainly string a sentence together, and I remember how much I liked the laid-back, funny way they wrote their homework. It was a long, long story (because they’ve known one another for a long, long time) … Continue Reading
Tim helped us realise that we should make our ceremony as personal as we wanted.
I often bump into couples I’ve married at the weddings of their friends. I don’t usually meet them at the John Lewis sale, but that’s where Catie and Mark tracked me down earlier this week! As I said at the time, it was a bit spooky, as I’d only just looked out the wonderful … Continue Reading
I always get a bit nervous before a Franco-Scottish wedding.

Billy and Janice got in touch with me in June to ask if I could conduct their wedding in August. They don’t hang about, this pair! As Billy wrote in his homework, “Janice and I met on a cruise to Svalbard. We would meet on deck and talk. I remember at times thinking I wish … Continue Reading
Your help and advice was invaluable. You really instilled in us the importance of the words and that the sentiments of ceremony should reflect us and no one else.
everyone said they’d never been at such a personalised and relaxed wedding, ever!
