Hello, my name is Anna. I am a Celebrant and an Event Coordinator, and also a proud member of the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants.

Together we can create the wedding of your dreams

I live in the UK and spend quite a lot of time on the Italian Riviera in a beautiful Medieval village called Apricale which is in the province of Liguria. The French Riviera and Monaco are very close by. I am passionate about beautiful locations and I would love to introduce you to some of the most beautiful places in the world where your wedding setting can only be described as ‘magical‘!

I started my professional career as a Radio Presenter and DJ in London and the home counties and then created my own corporate events company which I ran for nearly 20 years. Weddings were my specialty and I am proud to say that I must have taken part in 100s of weddings, overseeing the music, arrangements, logistics and acting as master of ceremony.

Every wedding was important to me, be it at a restaurant, football ground, top London hotel, army base or village hall.

All wedding couples share the same desires – to have a day that is unique and special to them, where family and friends come together and enjoy being a part of such a momentous and beautiful occasion.

Becoming a wedding celebrant was a natural progression for me. There is nothing more rewarding to me than being able to make someone feel so special, especially on their wedding day. From the moment we make contact, I will do my utmost to reassure you and inspire confidence knowing that your ceremony will be one that is 100% about you.

“Even though it is said that your wedding day is the best day of your life, I like to think it is the beginning of the best days of your life!”

I have been living in Italy for about 15 years and when I am not in Italy I live in Yorkshire. With close family ties in both the north and the south of England means my work can be anywhere. Just over 10 years ago I created an online magazine called The Riviera Woman  to inspire, motivate and empower women living and working on the Riviera. The website also acts as a vehicle for publicity and marketing. I am also a qualified NLP Practitioner and Counsellor. People matter to me.

Over 3 years ago I founded a local expat group: Vivaitalia Club. We organised events and have regular meet ups and it is amazing how many nationalities attend the events.

I am a board member of the Professional Women’s Network; a member of The American Club of the Riviera and the British Association in Menton, France.

When I am in Italy I can cross 3 countries in one day! This is something I still find absolutely amazing! And being so close to Nice airport allows me to travel back and forth to the UK within hours… or even better, you can join me here! I speak English, Italian and French.

I enjoy taking photographs which can be seen on my Facebook profile or on Instagram. I love to cook… especially with local and fresh produce. I love my partner Graham, I love my doggy Buffy and my 2 pussycats, and I love to smile! And I can’t wait to meet you!

You are welcome to contact me with pleasure.
