“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince.
I have lived a fascinating life. I was born in South Africa under apartheid and I grew up in a society obsessed with difference. Laws separated people of different colours and ideologies. I always knew this was wrong and perhaps my early experiences have impacted on my passionate commitment to honouring and celebrating diversity in human beings.
Something I love in life is when people give gifts to one another. In the last few years, it has been my privilege to spread joy and magic as Santa Claus, a calling I take very seriously. Ho! Ho! Ho!
I see Marriage as that sacred and special moment when people gift their best selves to each other and I love being able to facilitate and officiate at those times.
