I am British and have lived in the United States for over forty years spending the last seventeen years in the beautiful, Tucson, Arizona desert. I still have a refreshing British accent, which is often complimented! I was mentioned in BBC America's "10 British things in Tucson" and I am #7!
I have double credentials for wedding officiating. There are two reasons I became a wedding officiant:
First, and most importantly, I had lost faith in ever falling in love and finding my true match because of the catastrophic outcome of my first marriage. At a potluck almost twelve years ago, completely unexpectedly, I met the love of my life, whom I now refer to as my prince. My prince is an amazing father to my three adult daughters and an incredible husband. Our love inspired me to become an officiant/minster so that I could marry others and carry over the love to them.
Secondly, when I was in High School in Northern California, because my teachers really liked my British accent, I was always asked to speak in front of the class. By the time I was ready to graduate from High School I had a complex about public speaking. So, I also decided to become an officiant to improve my public speaking skills. I must say I have improved above and beyond my expectations!
My husband and I have traveled a lot together. We have fallen in love with the Mexico, mostly the Yucatan Peninsula. We have purchased a vacation home in the small town of Telchac Pueblo and will start spending several months of each year enjoying the Yucatan so we will also be performing weddings during our time there.
I look forward to helping create a personalized, lovely wedding for you and officiating on your special day, the first day of the rest of your lives together.
I am originally from the Chicago area where I attended St Emily's catholic school. In 1994 I moved to Tucson, AZ to attend The University of Arizona where I graduated in 1997. I went on to get my Master's degree, and by then there was no leaving Tucson.
My lovely wife and I were married by an officiant in Tucson in 2007. I married the love of my life, now I want to marry you and the love of your life!
I want to bring joy and happiness to peoples' lives by providing affordable traditional and same-sex officiating / minister services. I am primarily a non-denominational officiant, although I have no issues mentioning God or incorporating religious elements to your ceremony. We can customize your ceremony together to fit your circumstances and desires.
