I’m Penny I live in the beautiful county of Northumberland with my two adopted Siamese cats and pet Hare “Ridley”. Some of my more wild ideas included learning to drive an HGV and buying a superfast motorbike as well as taking myself off to Australia for a few weeks.
I have enjoyed working with a variety of people during my life whilst determined to do my best during a varied career, starting life in the catering industry and working in hotels and restaurants. I then took at totally different direction and worked in retail and direct sales before deciding to re-train as a Rehabilitation Officer working with vision impaired people. For nearly twenty years I helped blind and partially sighted people with their confidence and skills to live a fulfilling life, before going back to my grass roots and opening an award winning B&B and Wedding Venue based in Northumberland. Having passed the reigns of my business onto a new team I still have a passion to work with people and help them create memorable events.
I have gained so many skills, knowledge and qualifications over my life so far and it’s great to keep learning and working with different people. I love being creative and building relationships with those people I work with to bring ideas to fruition and generate memorable times.
It was so enjoyable working with the couples when running the B&B and wedding venue that I have decided to become a celebrant. This path gives people the freedom to generate a truly individual, meaningful and completely unique ceremony that isn’t restricted by the standard script, readings and music.
How fabulous it is to make your most important day something you can create that is totally exclusive to those involved. I look forward to working with you and making memories.
