Different Ceremonies making a Difference for Different People
Ceremonies of different flavours which make a difference for different people are what I create. Any Life Transition, for any occasion can be celebrated with Ceremony. After all, most ceremonies mark transition. Not only do ceremonies create meaning for weddings, but also they create meaning for new life and for death.
Double Award-Winning with a decade of experience creating ceremonies.

Bringing all my expertise to Brighton people and I can’t wait to meet you.
It is my preference to try and serve local communities in a local context. Being a Celebrant in a Community suits me. At University I studied Theology and Religion gaining a First Class Degree at The University of Birmingham and specialising in Contemporary Spirituality in Britain. That background gave me a passion for the concept of Community, and service to that community. It highlighted the beauty of building long standing relationships with your communities.
It is traditionally part of the role of a person dedicated to ceremony to serve a particular group of people and get to know them over time. Although this may be true, times have changed and so I will travel to you if I’m your person. Choosing to work with me, may well mean that you identify as ‘Spiritual but not Religious’ and I would be inclined to say the same of myself.
All Faiths or None, I’m not a Humanist
However, I often work with people of all faiths or none and I especially love working with intercultural and interfaith relationships. Before I moved to Brighton people who knew me well and knew Brighton well all told me “you’ll love Brighton and Brighton will love you”. This goes to show that we should trust those who know us best. Yes! I am indeed in love with Brighton and I feel the love from Brighton too. Can’t wait to meet you for coffee, chocolates and chats which will lead to ceremonies full of love and laughter
I’m bringing your communities a decade of ceremony expertise to Brighton from Multi-cultural Birmingham
After all those years in Brum, meeting phenomenal people and growing in ways I couldn’t have anywhere else, I have discovered that I’m just…’Very Brighton’! But I’ve only been here for one month. Because I’m new here I have yet to forge all the new relationships in my new life. Living in Central Birmingham for 22 years has made me very exited about the power of those inter-generational relationships and the importance of celebrating and embracing diversity.
Starting again with new communities
We’re starting again! me, my partner Mrinal and our 3 mad Burmese cats. Starting again has given me the opportunity to start again with my business. I now a decade and 2 awards under my Celebrant belt. Since I trained to become accredited with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants I have lots of experience creating ceremonies which I am now bringing to you here in Brighton.
Relaxed, joyous, creative, informal, chilled vibe with no bored guests? Yes? give me a call
Let’s say you want a break from convention and want to be truly creative with your ceremony? If so, then I’m the celebrant for you. Perhaps you would like a ceremony like Jessica and Waly who had a big Graffiti board during their ceremony which they then framed. This graffiti board had been signed by all their friends and family and they also played with tradition. Although they loved to break with convention, they also loved playing with traditions. At this wedding the Brazillian side of the family all wore kilts! As a result they had a wedding ceremony full of nods to tradition but playfully disrupted and reinterpreted.
Do you love informal, relaxed vibes with a lot of humour thrown in? Well, you are in the right place because this is very much my thing.
