Ceremonies


Wedding

It's always a good idea to book your marriage celebrant once you’ve set a date for your wedding.

We can arrange to meet and if you’re happy to proceed, we can then complete the necessary, initial paperwork. We can discuss how the ceremony proceeds and I will answer questions you may have. I have a vast selection of ceremonies and readings, which you are welcome to take with you and return at your leisure.

Readings and verses, however small are also a very important part of your ceremony. They help capture the moment, allowing your family and friends time to reflect on this new and beautiful coming together of two people in love.

I would be delighted to help create a ceremony that will express your emotions for one another as well as your lifestyle and beliefs. I have conducted many weddings for couples from different cultures and am happy to incorporate cultural aspects into your ceremony.


Naming

Baby naming ceremonies are an alternative and popular rite of passage to a christening or baptism. Family and friends can help celebrate with you, the safe arrival of your child into the world and wish you all well through the journey of life.

The ceremony is usually held in the comfort of your own home or in a park setting. I can assist you in your decision making and provide you with a ceremony that will be moving and memorable.


Re-Affirmation

To re-affirm your marriage vows on a special anniversary is a romantic and wonderful idea. A time to remember and reflect on the love you continue to share.


Commitment

If a couple is unable to marry because of legal, religious, cultural or gender reasons then a wonderful alternative is a formal Commitment ceremony.

Together we can design a ceremony where you are able to declare your love for each other and celebrate your relationship before your families and friends. The ceremony can follow the format of a wedding but there are no legal or binding aspects involved.     


Garden

Weddings for limited numbers may be held in my garden. This is an ideal alternative to a Registry Office wedding as it is much more relaxed, private and personal. We will celebrate with champagne after the ceremony!


Funeral - Celebration of Life

With care and compassion, we can respectfully share the life and loss of your loved one.
