CELEBRATING LIFE, LOVE AND DEATH
Human beings have created ceremonies and 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 ceremonies meaningful, magical and personal.
As a non-denominational celebrant, I design, write and lead bespoke celebrations to mark the transitions in our lives; from baby namings to weddings and funerals, and everything in between.
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 ceremony, 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.
