Relationships are all around us – we connect and we build them and we create stories.
Our aim here is to take those connections and those stories and weave them into a medium which allows you to celebrate, honour and remember the important occasions and the important people in your life.
Alongside creating beautiful bespoke Celebrant services for all family occasions, we also help you to tell your story or the story of your loved one – sometimes through taking your already gathered information and presenting in a uniquely designed format to treasure or sometimes by helping you to gather the information you need from generations past – enabling you to fill the gaps in your history and bring those stories and ancestors to life again.
The Celebrant Story Teller
When you wish to mark a special event my role is to create a ceremony that reflects you. From working with you on wording for the ceremony itself to suggesting events within the ceremony such as sand ceremonies, candle lighting or perhaps even tree planting, alongside the creation of atmosphere with music and readings.
A Celebrant performs a non-legal ceremony so for weddings and civil partnerships you will need a short registrar service beforehand, however a Celebrant Ceremony gives you amazing flexibility. I can include religious readings, prayers and hymns – respecting your beliefs and values. I love to create fusions which honour you and yours – whether it’s focused on a pagan handfasting or combines a mix of faiths or simply on the concept of spirit within us where no religion is cited.
As a Celebrant we can also choose a location that best fits your perfect day as we do not have to be in a licensed premises, so outdoors, your family home – really the ideas are limitless.
All our lives are full of stories and my favourite part of creating ceremonies is hearing these stories and creating a way of telling them for your audience.. so it seemed only natural to take this further and design a service which allows you to capture those stories regardless of whether a ceremony is needed. Sometimes you only learn about individuals and your family history when someone has passed over – it always fascinates me to see how people learn so much at this time. Often they wish to learn more but don’t know where to start.. or they want to capture the stories to pass onto new generations. This is where I come in – helping to bring those individuals to life through the stories, researching and writing – creating beautiful documents to treasure for years to come.
