SIGNIFICANT CELEBRATIONS FOR YOUR EXPERIENCES OF LIFE, LOVE & LOSS
Is there a ‘Special Occasion’ on the horizon for you and your family? Are you looking to mark the occasion with a distinctive celebration?
I can help you celebrate life in the way that best reflects who you are and what you want to say, whether it's a Baby Naming, a Wedding, a special Anniversary, Milestone Birthday or a Life Celebration, whatever your occasion... I'm happy to help create together a celebration which is formal, or relaxed and full of fun, or a blend of these styles- it’s about choice, your choice!
A baby naming is a wonderful celebration of the arrival of a new life, bringing together family and friends who will nurture and support the little one and the family, delighting in the emerging individual personality and each milestone achieved, nurturing, guiding and protecting them along life’s journey. These kinds of celebrations have been around for centuries in many cultures.
As a Celebrant for all family and civil occasions I can offer you Naming Ceremonies for your new bundle of joy. A Naming Service can occur shortly after the arrival or when the child is older. Bringing the family and friends together to celebrate this occasion also brings recognition of the importance and contribution of family and community in the life of the newborn.
Love is in the Air!
If you’re reading this as a couple preparing to marry ~ warmest congratulations on your pending marriage and your plans to celebrate your love!
I just love being a Marriage Celebrant! As such I’m entrusted with the honour and pleasure of meeting and working closely with couples, like you, in such a special time in your lives.
You may want to celebrate your love for each other with family and friends, or you may prefer an intimate ceremony with a small number of guests, or it may simply be just the two of you in a private ceremony. It’s your choice.
With my experience, specialty knowledge and resources I work with you in a relaxed manner to create and fine tune an awesome ceremony designed just for you!
Working as an Authorised Celebrant is a joy ~ I love helping you explore the countless ways you can make this ceremony a real celebration of your love, include some fun, and then lead it in a warm, engaging, professional manner.
This means that you, your family and friends will be left with wonderful memories to treasure for a lifetime – the happiest day of your lives.
If you are planning to renew your vows or celebrate an anniversary then I send you warmest wishes and look forward to working with you to create a memorable celebration...
For many years I have been assisting people with creating moving ceremonies to mark the loss of a loved family member.
I find this privileged time to gently and sensitively work with your family; a priceless experience as I come to learn the essence of each person, valuing the relationships formed and experiences shared as we harness the myriad memories formed and treasured.
While being sensitive to your family’s grief, the essential qualities of your loved one are drawn together to create a deserving, honest and memorable thanksgiving; a fitting celebration of their life, their personality and experiences.
By giving a voice to their sorrow many families find this a very helpful process to assist them dealing with their grief. Family and friends appreciate the opportunity to gather to show their support and honour the person they have loved and known and to share their memories.
As some people now consider how they wish to approach the end of their life, they may wish to plan for their funeral or memorial to ease the pain on their loved ones and ensure their wishes are honoured. I’m available to help you and work with you to design your ideal send off.
I’d be honoured to accompany you at this difficult time and to create together a ceremony which truly honours the life lived and the love shared.
Birthdays & Milestones
There are many other moments in life we can choose to honour with a personalised celebration.
Formal or informal occasions can be tailored to mark the significance of a special event ~ a great excuse for a party!
I treasure moments to help people celebrate these milestone events in their lives and bring loved ones together in a celebratory and memorable way.
