CELEBRATING the moments of our lives
Human beings have created rituals since the dawn of time. We still need to celebrate.
It’s just that these days, we don’t always know how to make our rituals meaningful, magical and personal.
I design, write and lead bespoke celebrations to mark the milestones in our lives.
From the big shifts we all face in love and death, like weddings and funerals, to marking the smaller moments that make us who we are, like changing your career, leaving a home, creating a new endeavour or letting go of something that has come to an end, I work with individuals, communities and organisations, to create bespoke rituals that honour all kinds of unique transitions.
My clients include atheists, people who are spiritual but not religious and interfaith couples and families who want to bring aspects of their respective cultures into their ceremonies.
A FUNERAL IS A FULL STOP.
A WEDDING IS A PLUS SIGN.
A NAMING CEREMONY IS A NEW SENTENCE
WITH ITS OWN CAPITAL LETTER.
In other cultures, additional rituals are commas, or even semi-colons, used to honour milestones that we don’t even acknowledge, from the transition to adulthood to becoming a grandparent, from the anniversary of a death to the changing of the seasons.
Without ritual, it’s far harder to really let go of the old or begin the new.
No two wedding ceremonies should be the same because no two couples are the same.
I collaborate with you to weave together your ideas, beliefs and stories, to create a ceremony that is personal, memorable and meaningful to everyone present.
A funeral can and should reflect the life and death of the person at its centre.
I spend as much time as possible with the family and friends of the person whose life and death we are gathering to remember, celebrate, honour and mourn.
We have an innate desire to celebrate beginnings, experience transformations and honour endings.
I work with you to explore how to create a meaningful, memorable and magical moment to celebrate crossing over a threshold in your life.

But alongside the mindful and experienced guidance of Tiu, you will be sure to find something to discover something to help you on your journey, whether this is the extraordinary and hidden, or the ordinary from a very different perspective.
She will listen to and respect your values, and accept your ways as she accompanies you, in your time, with her.”
