My mission is to make couples feel empowered to celebrate love by creating an informal wedding ceremony.

I transformed the singing wedding celebrant movement and added diversity to the wedding industry.

In 2008, I consciously made a decision to share some of the burden of wedding planning. So, I changed the way deserving couples of all gender, race and religion planned their wedding ceremony service.

With a lust for life [perhaps a little crazy, in a good way], my clients and I don’t let wedding anxiety spoil their planned dream day. We aim for the perfect marriage celebration.

Whatever, wherever and whenever the couples decided to host their informal wedding, we made it happen. From wedding theme, music entertainment and venue, we checked every option. Most importantly, we discuss the touchy subject of who gets to give the bride [groom] away. We covered it all.

In fact, over the past decade, I’ve included my singing talent, choir and band into the wedding ceremony mix — for a fraction of the cost. Read on..


“what you need to know”

And here is the best news, my wedding couples save time, money and have more fun planning the happiest day of their lives. Primarily, newlyweds-to-be can keep track of stuff from the comfort of their own home [ due to coronavirus new wedding rules].

About Me: I’m not just a smiling face!

As an expat, Afro-Caribbean national born in Shepherds Bush, London in the late sixties, I moved to Amsterdam in 1986. I’m an exotic mix of traditions, my Jamaican mum [baptist] and St Lucian dad [atheistic], empowered me with the spirit of freethinking. And I’m dedicated to creating meaningful, heartfelt, and informal weddings.


“Read what client’s say!”

If I’m able to add my officiating style to the wedding couples mix and make them feel great, this is a win-win situation for us both. And with an endless amount of ceremony options to choose from newlyweds-to-be are spoilt for choice.

I encourage the couples to explore all the different aspects of their style, moral and ethical beliefs. Why? Because the wedding couples special occasion deserves it!

Thank you for stopping by!
