Vicky’s business, Spot On Ceremonies, was born during the first lockdown, and while she has been officiating at weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies since she founded the business, she credits local media with giving her valuable experience in hosting ceremonies.

She said: “Before I started Spot On I was privileged to host a number of award ceremonies for the Observer and its sister titles, and also for Spirit FM.

“One way or another I guess I have been standing on ceremony for a good few years now!”

Vicky is up against seven other celebrants from across the South East in her category.

The South East regional final of TWIA takes place on Monday (January 24), at Old Thorns Hotel in Liphook.
