Anne Broom

Hello I’m Anne Broom, the founder of Connect Matchmaking.


I am passionate about helping people find their perfect match.  To share your life with a soul mate is an amazing feeling.


Most of my working life was spent in banking, working with hundreds of clients as a Senior Customer Relationship Manager.


For many years I have wanted to start my own Matchmaking company and at last here I am.

I am a graduate of the London Matchmaker Academy Course and I feel well qualified to help in bringing people together to form successful relationships.  I’ve also gained a diploma in Life Coaching through Newcastle College.  My friends tell me that I am a really good listener, friendly and honest.


At the age of 19 I married my childhood sweetheart and had 2 amazing children (now fully grown).  Unfortunately, the marriage failed after 12 years but I’m happy to say that we have remained good friends.  After a few disastrous relationships I met Ian, fell in love and have now been married for 22 years.  I feel truly blessed to have found my soul mate.  Ian and I have a fantastic extended family.

Alexandra Eno

Alex Eno, Stylist at The Eno Edit

Alex is incredibly passionate about helping people feel their best via the colours and clothes they wear.  She believes wholeheartedly that wearing colours that make your eyes sparkle and complexion glow, in clothes that are a reflection of your true nature, builds confidence and self esteem. Clients have found her consultations to be fascinating, inspiring and even life changing!

As a former colleague Anne very much impressed me with her integrity, honesty and professionalism.  She paid great attention to detail and put her heart and soul into whatever she was tasked to do.  Anne always put others before herself, radiating warmth, understanding and kindness. 


Become An Associate Member

Sometimes we have to look outside our Preferred Member Database, to headhunt for a match for a member with specific preferences in mind. So on these occasions we offer Associate memberships to single people who might be a good match.  If you would like to join as an Associate Member then please let us know and we would consider you for this type of membership.  Please remember we would never be actively looking for matches for you, as we would for a paying member. If an Associate Member seems particularly suitable for a paying member, then we are happy to give them a complimentary match.  You will need to provide photographic ID and proof of address plus 2 recently taken photographs. We will personally interview you either face to face or via video link and write up your personal dating profile.
