other celebrant services!

Ready to celebrate for an alternative reason? Mourning a beloved pet? Whatever it is, as your Celebrant I'll help make it special and wonderfully memorable...


Life brings us so many reasons to celebrate and why not make the most of every one? Even during sad times, we can take comfort from celebrating the life of a loved one or honouring a past chapter in our lives.


So, with the bright tapestry of sunshine, rain clouds and rainbows in mind, I'm here as your Celebrant to help you mark all such milestones in the most fitting, beautiful ways.


Scroll on below for a few examples of the types of ceremonies I can offer, beyond weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies. Whatever you want to celebrate, or whatever ceremony you'd like to hold, I would love to talk to you, inspire you and turn your dreams into reality!



​Engagement Celebrations

An engagement is the perfect reason for a celebration. Why not start your engagement with a ceremony that celebrates your marriage proposal and sets the scene for the wedding to follow.

Divorce Ceremony

A divorce not only signifies the ending of a relationship, but it also heralds the beginning of a new chapter in your life. Why not celebrate your newly single state with the friends and family who have helped you start. Mark the day with a ceremony that reflects the new you.

Family Blending Ceremony

A family blending ceremony is a wonderful way of bringing together a newly formed family unit. Two people coming together with children or other family members to create a new family.


Renaming ceremonies

Changing your name can be one of the most important steps for a transgender or gender non-conforming person to take and if they choose to, to celebrate with those who have supported them on their journey.

Like all the ceremonies I write, your renaming ceremony will be written with you at the heart of it. We will talk about readings, music and elements to make sure this ceremony tells your story as you want it to be told. You can also include religious elements if this is an important part of your life.

Everyone's trans journey is unique to them, and so just like you the ceremony will be unlike any other reflecting your individuality.


Anniversary Ceremonies

There can be many types of anniversary that you wish to mark with a ceremony - a wedding anniversary; a special birthday; a retirement.


Pet Funerals

Grief over the loss of a pet is as real and as valid as any grief which is why I offer this service.

​The format follows a similar vein to the other ceremonies I take, we meet and talk and I create a personalised service. This is then delivered in a location of your choice.



Let's chat it over!

Please feel free to give me a call, even if you're just thinking the idea of a celebration or ceremony over. I'll never push my services and will be honest as to how I can best support you. I may be able to recommend other suppliers from within my network that would be helpful to you too!
