Other celebrations

Life provides so many milestones.  Below are just some of the occasions I can help you celebrate.

Naming ceremonies

A naming ceremony is the perfect way to celebrate the birth of your child and welcome them into your family and community. The occasion can be marked with readings, poems songs or a ritual. Some parents ask individuals to pledge their commitment to act as significant adults in their child’s life.

Your child’s arrival is a joyous occasion, and I can help you plan the celebration to share that joy with family and friends. I also issue you with a Certificate of Naming as a memento.

Renewing your vows

Now is the time to start planning your renewal of vows or commitment ceremony. During Covid you may have married in an intimate ceremony and now that the borders are starting to open up, you might like to celebrate with your family and friends.

There are so many reasons to renew your vows – perhaps you married interstate and want to mark the occasion with friends and family who couldn’t be there, perhaps you are celebrating a special anniversary or you may feel the need to restate your commitment to one another.

Whatever the reason, I can help you reaffirm your love and commitment to one another. I also issue you with a Certificate of Affirmation of Wedding Vows as a memento.

The following photo was a unique and delightful vow renewal. Paul wanted to surprise his bride of 21 years, Maria with a vow renewal at her 50th birthday. It was such a treat to be part of this event. Maria loved every moment, just as much as Paul and the children enjoyed planning it, I’m sure.

Celebrating pets

Pets are part of the family – our companions, our confidants and in many cases our dearest friend. As mother to Oscar and Felix, my two ragdoll cats, I understand the special bond you may have with your pet. I can work with you to design a ceremony to welcome a new pet or a memorial to say goodbye.

Pets are also very welcome at your exclusive ceremony.


Celebrating a life lived

It is difficult to say farewell to a loved one when they die, but a funeral or memorial is an opportunity to celebrate their life. It can be a time for music, stories, tears and laughter.

I can work with your family and your funeral director with empathy and respect to develop a meaningful ceremony that captures the true essence of your loved one in a way that their family and friends can celebrate and remember.
