Professional Celebrant from Brighton (UK) with a passion for languages
I am a fully-trained member of the International College of Professional Celebrants. I made the wonderful city of Brighton my home over 20 years ago, having moved here from Cologne, one of the jolly cities in the German Rhineland. Growing up at the centre of the European mainland sparked an early interest in foreign languages and I am lucky to speak 6 (German Spanish Portuguese French Dutch and Russian, and hopefully more to come when I retire).
I hold a degree as an interpreter/translator and my professional life has involved international project development and working with people from diverse cultures across all continents. It fascinates me to find ways that help us communicate across boundaries – not only those imposed by speaking different languages.
Being a widow, I have experienced love and loss, and love found again. I believe in the power of ceremonies and rituals for the important moments of change in our lives – they bring us together and can also help us when we have to take the difficult steps in life. With traditional religions being less prominent in people’s lives, I would be honoured to help you fill this space with ceremonies that reflect who you are and that create something that you, your family and friends will remember for a long time. And if they happen to be from different cultures and speak different languages, I can deliver ceremonies in more than one language.
I would be delighted to hear from you and have a chat about how we can create your ceremony together.
