Thank you for considering me for your commitment and binding to each other.  I have been practising and holding ceremonies for over 20 years.  I have been trained by some of the best - Kate West and members of Gerald Gardener’s group, including Lois Bourne.  I have held handfastings at Stonehenge, Avebury, The Rollright stones, hotels, private homes and gardens, the Black Mountains in Wales, Temples in Egypt and on a River bank in the South West of France.

Your ceremony can be as detailed as you wish it to be as I will be working with you to create the most magical day.  You can make this ceremony unique to you and your loved one.  I may even be able to lend you a ‘prop’ or two.
