Life is full of precious moments shared with family, friends and colleagues. I will help you create ceremonies and events that are personal, meaningful and unforgettable. Whether it is leading a deeply moving ceremony, hosting an event or entertaining an audience, I will help make your occasion memorable and beautiful, presenting with clarity, humour and dignity.
Ceremonies are part of our human experience and it is important to mark special occasions in our lives with honour and dignity. I have gained over 15 years experience creating and conducting weddings, baby namings, christenings, funerals, memorials, scattering of ashes, and renewals of vows. I am a priest in the Church of England and work with local churches in the Diocese of Exeter and the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Because every family is unique, every ceremony is unique, and my aim is to lead your occasion with empathy and sensitivity.

With over 20 years experience as a teacher and presenter, I am a confident, natural communicator who will bring a presence and gravitas to your event, holding an audience and providing links with humour and competence. Whether sticking to a script or speaking from memory I will host your event or presentation with finesse and professionalism.

I am an experienced and entertaining writer and performer. I have over 25 years experience leading workshops, comedy nights, voice acting, radio productions, and commissioned writing.
