My attitude to ceremony/Vision Statement:

Very family and community oriented, I am passionate about art, health, wellbeing, learning, education and development. I believe in the importance of expression and communication through every channel imaginable. As individuals we create society, but as a society we sometimes forget to value individuality. Ceremony acknowledges individuality through inclusive ritual of acceptance and celebration with those who mean most, family and friends.

As a celebrant, I always feel honoured to co-create ceremonies of highest quality and value for those it means most.

Belief and faith come in endless ways, but for most, quality life benefits greatly from optimism and self-belief. Personally for me, spirituality is an individual abstraction and is a prominent feature for each individual ceremony. Creating ceremonies and rituals to suit those the ceremonies are for is what matters most.
