YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY SHOULD BE AS UNIQUE AS YOUR LOVE STORY

A wedding is the one occasion where we all gather together to celebrate love - a community of family and friends encircling those at its centre with all their warmth, good wishes and hopes for their lasting happiness. 


I invite you to bring a new and fresh sense of liberation to this most cherished of rituals. To add in your own emotional needs and spiritual and non-spiritual beliefs, weaving all the elements together to create a brand new kind of wedding ceremony,  one that celebrates who you are and what you hope to become together, something bespoke and bold, meaningful and magical.

We kick off with making a time for a free half hour discovery call, via Skype or Zoom, at a time that works for you.

I will also send you a piece I wrote all about creating weddings with wonder, which will give you a lot of questions to consider and which will help you to begin visioning your perfect ceremony.

Then, if you feel like taking the next step, we can book your 3 hour deep dive, a stand alone session that will equip you with all the tools you need to start creating - whether with me, or with another celebrant, minister or friend.

I also offer training if you would like my help in preparing the person of your choice to officiate on the big day.

CREATING YOUR DREAM CEREMONY

This is a profound, intense, creative, intimate and carefully held journey, which takes you deep into the heart of your love story, exploring the foundation of your relationship, creating all aspects of a meaningful ceremony that truly serves to carry you into a new chapter in your life together.

I offer an utterly bespoke hand-held creative process, designed to help you create the ceremony of your dreams, with one to one attention and expertise on all aspects of the creation of your ceremony, from the initial brainstorm to delivering your service. 

The journey we go on together spans head, heart and spirit. It takes many months of meetings, conversation, emotion, visioning, planning and processing it all until it can be distilled into a one off wedding ceremony that will not only touch not the hearts of all those present, but that is specially designed to carry you safely into a long and happy future together.

It is intimate, intense and will go a long way to deepening both your understanding of your commitment to each other and also how lasting love can work. We address the unique nature of your relationship, the shadows and potential trip hazards up ahead, as well as the blessings and beauties that make your love so strong and special. The process also takes into account the complexities of your respective families and the community in which you live, so that you can bring everyone together to strengthen your love, including them in your marriage that it thrives into the years and decades ahead, held in a safe and strong container.

I bring all my skills to this work, from intuitive coach to spiritual guide, from creative facilitator to Oxford educated writer, public speaker and - when called for - professional singer.
