Wedding Officiant and Celebrant

Like the sea with its endless horizon there are limitless possibilities when crafting your ceremony. 

Imagine yourself at the water’s edge looking out at the ocean with thousands of ideas flowing through your mind.

Together we can collaborate and create your perfect, unique ceremony. Whether you are planning a Wedding, Vow Renewal, a Ceremony of Remembrance, Retirement, Home Blessing, Pet Ceremony, Baby Welcoming or Baby Naming I can help you! If you want to celebrate an occasion not listed, let’s talk and PLAN!

marriage and unity ceremonies

weddings   |   elopements   |   engagements   |   vow renewals   |   anniversaries

With your input, I will create a warm, unique and personalized ceremony. You have found me because you want something different and maybe non-traditional. I will design a ceremony that is meaningful and reflects you. Are you inter-faith, LGBTQ+ or spiritual but not affiliated with a traditional religion? I am here to help you create the ceremony that fits you perfectly! I can find the reading, song or ritual that will make your ceremony special. I will tell your love story and together we will celebrate this most special day. If your venue is non-traditional I will weave the importance of place into the ceremony to make it even more special.

I work with everyone involved in your ceremony, the music, readers, planner etc. So there is no worry, you can enjoy your perfect day because everything is organized and will run smoothly thanks to my planning and preparation.

end of life ceremonies

end of life   |   living funerals   |   memorials   |   interments

If it is a funeral or Celebration of Life, I will work with you, your family and friends to tell a Hero’s story of the deceased. We are all heroes and every life must be remembered and honoured. I will create a ceremony that is unique whether you are looking for a simple remembrance or a ceremony filled with ritual and readings that reflects the life of the one whom we honour.

Through this ceremony I try to help make sense of the loss and grief but most importantly to provide hope that every life lived is a blessing and that the universe will care and comfort all who lived. If you have lost a precious pet we will work together to remember and give thanks for those in our lives who give us unconditional love.

life cycle ceremonies

baby naming   |   baby blessing   |   adoption   |   graduation

You are welcoming a new life! Let me help you create a wonderful, gentle ceremony to welcome your miracle! If you have adopted a child, this child is new to you and their welcome is so special. Together we can create a ceremony that will mark, perhaps, the most important decision of your life.

retirement

Let me design a meaningful ceremony that marks a time of transition. Change can be scary even if it’s change you welcome. A major change in your life should be celebrated and honoured. I would love to design a ceremony that reflects your mixed emotions (or not!) to mark this important time in your life.

home blessing

Whether you are moving in or out this will be or was your home, your haven. Let me create a one-of-a-kind ceremony to mark a time of mixed emotions. Moving can be stressful but an intentional hello or goodbye helps to bring closure to this time of transition.
