Fiona Briggs (CU119), founder of Hatches Matches Dispatches, lives  in Ballito on the North Coast of Natal in South Africa, where she works as a Spiritual Counselor and Civil Celebrant.

Having developed her skills through various techniques both locally and internationally, she has built up a reputation as a sympathetic counselor with a regular, dedicated international and varied clientele.  She regularly consults to highly influential people, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, amongst others, as well as home executives, scholars, families etc and assists them with key decisions, as well as providing advice on  steps they could take to enhance their lives on every level.  She travels all over the world, on invitation,  running workshops,  retreats, delivering talks  and conducting private consultations.    

Coming from a more Spiritual than Religious point of view, Fiona is accepting of all faiths and combinations thereof.  Naturally empathetic, Fiona’s sincerity and warmth will leave you feeling uplifted, empowered and very special.  

Fiona is friendly, professional, positive and very able.  She performs all types of ceremonies with class and presence.  She has a true servant’s heart, and serving others on the most important day of their lives is something she considers a great blessing. She says, “Joining in marriage two people who are truly in love is the best job I could ever have. I love being part of that special moment when they first say, ‘I do.’ It makes my heart smile!  Uniting a couple in marriage is an experience that I cherish, and when I say those magic words, ‘husband and wife,’ I know that I have been witness to a miracle.”

My favorite part of the wedding ceremony is when the Bride enters the room and the Groom sees her for the first time. That look of love is what makes it all worthwhile. Knowing that I had a part in bringing them together in marriage both thrills me and humbles me. There is no greater joy than seeing two souls united in marriage. Nothing is more powerful and spiritual than this union.’

When not officiating  she enjoys painting and produces original art.

Who I am

A Woman That Loves to Create

Hatches Matches Dispatches is a specialist company, and I love what I do. It’s who I am. As a husband and wife team working side by side until  the death of my beloved husband in July 2016, leaving me to single-handedly run the business, I aspire for the designed life style: a place where work, life and inspiration are all equal and integrated organically.

My goal is to create work that is honest, solutions that are exploratory, touching and inspirational, material that is conceptually interesting and professional. I operate with the belief that process and collaboration should be as exciting and fun as the end result.  I am designated by the South African Department of Home Affairs, designation number CU119.
