FROM beginning to end, our stories need to be told,
to be celebrated, to be shared and to be remembered.
covid 19 - as an officiant i can help bridge the gap.
The creativity of Life-Cycle Celebrants is heightened as we respond to the devastating impact of physical distancing and COVID-19. Restrictions affect how families can gather to share the experiences of joy and of loss.

If you would like your ceremony to reflect your story, your wishes, or your loved one I would be happy to work with you.
With your approval throughout the process, I will craft a ceremony using language, ritual, spirituality and cultural traditions of your choosing. Each special moment - each special person in your life, is worth pausing and naming, celebrating and honouring. Throughout human history we have reflected on life and what it means for us. Using ceremony to mark our moments answers an innate human need in us.
Difficult times also call for expression. It has been said that the only feelings that do not change are the ones we don't name. Our life experiences will always be a part of who we are but we do not need to be trapped by them, but rather find ways to move forward, taking their lessons of life and experiences of love with us. It is never too late or too trivial. Ceremonies may be public ones with others gathered, or private moments with very few present. I will meet with you to discuss what I might offer you.
If you decide to have me as your Life-Cycle Celebrant, I will work tirelessly to create a ceremony that is exactly what you want; reflecting your language, spirituality, your culture, traditions and experience. The ceremony will not be complete until you have given your final approval.
No Obligation Meeting: The first step is to have a no obligation meeting to discuss the needs of the client. Celebrations of Life and Funerals are usually $400 and Weddings, usually including rehearsals (depending on distance) are $500. Details can be discussed during our time together. Please note I do give consideration to a ceremony at minimal or no cost in special circumstances. If your needs dictate we can discuss this option.
