Every business owner has a story to tell and I'm no different. I went from being a business consultant and professional singer/entertainer to managing Spas in luxury hotels in Europe. One day, I found myself in Spain with no job and no inclination to go back to a full time position working for a big company. So, I set up independantly as a Bridal makeup & Special FX artist and I'm proud to say I'm a fully recognised MAC Pro member. Working closely alongside two other wedding planning companies, one in Spain and one in Gibraltar, one thing led to another and I found myself pulled back into business consulting services and on a plane to Italy to organise the paperwork for two weddings there. That was quickly followed by a 16 hour drive to Portugal and back where I assisted the bride and groom to be to get all their paperwork done for their wedding in Cascais. I should add that I speak Spanish, Portuguese, English and Italian fluently. So, for me, it's very easy to deal with local beaurocracies in these respective countries. Since then, as a professional entertainer and former actress, I have been asked if I could Minister (or officiate) Blessing Ceremonies. My response was to become an ordained Minister through the Universal Church of Life that respects all religions, cultures and traditions globally because it fits well with my own Buddhist views.Weddings in Gibraltar

If you've ever dreamt of getting married in an exotic country, we can help you. Since I am multilingual and know my way around the legal beaurocracies, I can help you to gather the correct documentation that you need, book your church or registry office and get all your documents translated, certified and notarised in the destination country of your wedding. I basically do all the legal leg work for you. So, all you have to worry about is turning up with your finery and guests! I can also recommend great hotels and venues, book them on your behalf and make sure you flowers turn up on time and the driver doesn't leave you waiting. I can even act as a translator for you in either the church or registry office of your choice. Normally, though, churches will do their best to provide you with a Priest who speaks your language. Europe is getting smaller by travel that has been made easier. So, language is no longer a barrier for your dream wedding.

As much as I would like to know everything and have all the answers, I don't! BUT ... As I've worked in 43 countries around the world, and with just about every nationality, I usually know a man, woman or child (the latter maybe not) somewhere in the world who does. So, please don't be afraid to ask. My speciality is finding answers and solutions. I do enjoy a good challenge! So, please don't be afraid to ask!
