Hello, Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile page.
My name is Elizabeth-Anne but I am usually called Elizabeth.
I am blessed with 4 wonderful adult children, who not only make me proud every day but teach me about the importance of kindness and humility.
After being born and living in Manchester in my younger days, I have lived across the UK before finally settling in South Wales which is a beautiful part of the UK. I still spend lot's of time in Manchester, Birmingham & Bristol (where my children live) as well as London where many of my friends still live.
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I firmly believe in equality, regardless of gender, sexuality, age and the myriad of other differences that make us human. As such, I enjoy life and enjoy meeting new people.
Life can be short and unpredictable, and I feel we need to make the most of each day. Celebrations of achievements and milestones are a big part of this.
My past work life has been colourful and varied. I am a working nurse, but in the past, I practised as a midwife in a high risk and busy London maternity unit. This led me to pursue ways in which I could learn to understand how we as individuals live.
I have worked as a life coach, and am also a trained Hypnotherapist. Currently, I also spend a lot of time supporting individuals who have liver disease and present local and national talks on various aspects of liver disease and liver health.
It is these experiences that have led to me be accepting of our differences, and to have an understanding and love of life in its many guises. I think it is these skills that have equipped me to tell the stories of those I meet in a way that brings smiles, love and laughter.
As a Celebrant, I want to help everyone to feel their worth as a person, as part of a couple or part of a family. Everything we do yesterday creates who we are today and helps to prepare us for our journey tomorrow. All our stories make up who we are.
It is my role as a celebrant to get to know you, to listen to your story, to find out about the wonderful journey that has brought you here today, it really is all about you!
Regardless of your occasion, if it means something to you, then I can help you to tell that story in a bespoke ceremony that is unique, memorable and tailored to fit.
Whether you are looking for a Wedding / Commitment/ Vow Renewal Ceremony, or whether you are welcoming a child into your family and wish to celebrate with a Naming ceremony. We can do that and more.
I say 'we', because whilst I will write and conduct your ceremony, it is all about you!
Whilst I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I write ceremonies for people!
Regardless of who you are, what you look like, your age or status. I promise that I will respect you, your story and your individuality. I will help you to celebrate who you are at this special time in your life.
Together we will plan your ceremony, we will celebrate your story in whichever way suits you. Whether you want a traditional ceremony, a themed event, or something totally different, we can work with that.
Whether you want to celebrate on a beach, in your garden, in a mansion or castle, we can do that too!
If you want to get married on New Year's Eve at the stroke of Midnight, we can find a way!
The beauty of choosing me as your Celebrant is that we can explore your dreams, work with your wishes and together come up with a beautiful and memorable ceremony.
