​I believe we all need to honor the milestones in our lives, and today that can be challenging if you do not belong to a religious community or group. I hope that couples will find that I am the solution to their search for a Wedding Officiant.


I am a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant, trained at  Celebrant Foundation and Institute and an Ordained Minister by the Universal Brotherhood Movement. I am able to legally marry you in the District of Columbia, Maryland and New York City.

 I am not limited by the type of location you choose, I am happy to marry you at your home, your favorite restaurant etc. I have a background in television, theater and the performing arts. I have also served in the United States Army. I was born and raised in England and I am proud to have grown up in a family rich in ceremony and tradition. I take great joy and pride in honoring couples at this very important moment in their lives.


I hope that you will consider choosing to allow me to help you on the path to your wedding  day and to your new lives together.

Recently, I have been commuting  on my bicycle to Officiate Ceremonies . I cycled to The Jefferson Memorial, the Tidal Basin, Yards Park. and the Waterfront.

It is the way to go during tourist season in D.C. when the weather is lovely!
