When we are telling the world how much we love someone, or mourning the loss of a special person in our lives, the right ceremony will help us pass through a threshold into a new chapter.
Combining a love of words and music with a deep sense of universal humanity, I feel very privileged to work closely with families and loved ones at these important times. A wedding ceremony should remain part of the fabric of your life. Its significance should stay with you and the rituals should be there to guide and support as you move through life. A funeral is for the living and should help you to create a new relationship with your loved one as they move from human form to spirit.
From blessings, vows and music to literature and eulogies I can help you to write and deliver a ceremony that perfectly reflects your values, beliefs and hopes.
I will listen deeply to your thoughts and ideas so that together we can write a ceremony and tribute that will perfectly capture the essence of the life experiences of you or your loved one. If you wish to read the tribute we will write something you can read and combine funeral readings and music celebrating the life which is being commemorated.
If you or someone in your family are looking towards the end of life, you may wish to plan your own ceremony, so that the words read perfectly reflect what you want to say to your family and friends after you have died. If you are able, you may also wish to hold a ceremony with close friends and family, so that you can celebrate together before you die. When a loved one is facing loss of memory, you may want help to capture the life they have lived. I can work with you to write their story never to be forgotten.
