Every couple is unique. Your marriage is an expression of all that you are, both as individuals and as a couple embarking on your future together. I specialise in tailoring your ceremony to your needs, working with you on the all important things like selecting your vows and co-ordinating the ceremony so that it is a hassle-free event. I also take care of the behind-the-scenes details like the paperwork so you have one less thing to worry about, leaving you free to enjoy your big day.
Renewal of Vows and Commitment Ceremonies
A renewal of vows ceremony can take any form and be held as often as you like. A milestone anniversary or an anniversary following the birth of a child can represent the perfect time to hold a renewal of vows ceremony. The ceremony celebrates the strength of your relationship and the many things which have brought you closer together over the years. It is a celebration of a life lived together, and a public way to restate your commitment to each other before friends and family.
Commitment Ceremonies are sometimes preferred to a legal marriage. Some couples would like to declare their commitment to each other publicly but don’t wish to get married.
A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to welcome a new soul in to the world. I work with you as the parents or guardians of your child to prepare for the ceremony, which would generally last around 20 minutes. Most parents choose to state their love and commitment for their child, and their hopes and dreams for their future. As with a more traditional ceremony, you may request adult friends or mentors to be present whom you have asked to provide guidance and support to your child throughout their life. Although not legally binding, a naming ceremony is a special celebration that you may choose instead of a traditional baptism or christening.
I will meet with you at this time of grief, listen, and create a ceremony that reflects the life of the person that you have lost. I offer compassion, and your service will be exactly as you wish, talking about the life of your loved one.
