CeremoniesOriginal and authentic ceremonies for people of all ages.
Funerals & Memorials
As a professionally trained celebrant, I will craft a funeral service that truly captures the essence of your loved one. Whether it is religious or not is absolutely your choice. Whether that be a cremation, burial, interment of ashes or memorial service I can also create a beautiful ceremony which can be held at any venue of your choice.
Memorials can be an opportunity to have the funeral your loved one was denied, for example, due to Covid19. Or to mark the anniversary of their passing. Often slightly longer than a standard funeral service and held at the client’s venue of choice, it can include music and readings and offers an opportunity to say a proper goodbye.
Funerals from £145.00 Memorials £250.00 A discount is available when both services are ordered.
A naming ceremony is a wonderful celebration, dedicated to the arrival of your child (or children), including adoption. Typically, the event includes a personalised ceremony, where guardians/life-guides (or whatever they wish to be called) are acknowledged. Personal readings or poems are included (like you would at a Christening). It follows a similar format to a Christening but isn’t in a religious location and does not include religious content (unless you want to). There are several reasons why you might choose a naming ceremony over a Christening, such as if you or your partner aren’t religious, you want to use a non-religious venue (including in the garden or at home if you wish) or you feel religion is a personal choice for a child once old enough to decide for him/herself. Using a Celebrant such as myself means you can have more say in the creative process while hosting a truly unique and beautiful “welcome to the family” event.

I don’t do “ordinary”. I do originality. I am known as being quirky. In my “other role” I am a shamanic healer and counsellor so any wedding ceremony crafted by me will have oodles of symbolic ritual and ceremony. It will be a ceremony that you and your guests will remember forever. When using a Celebrant such as myself you can have your ceremony anywhere you like – that may be in a hotel or village hall but it might also be at home, in the garden, on a beach or even in a wood! If you haven’t already, you just need to get the “legal bit” out of the way beforehand. All that involves is a quick visit to the registrars, say a few words and that’s it, you’re married. Then you are free to have the epic “ceremony” of your dreams wherever and whenever you want.
