Celebrant Services in West Yorkshire
Celebrant Wedding Services
Do you want your ‘I do’ to be the same as everyone else’s ‘I do’?
Let me create memories to last a lifetime with a ceremony at your dream location. Whatever you desire as your ceremony venue, quite often this is now possible. We will work closely putting together a beautiful personal service that is like no other and totally unique to you.
This is a life event and is special to "you", with as much or as little formality as you wish. You may choose to incorporate a symbolic ritual such as hand-fasting, a rose ceremony or a sand ceremony; perhaps lighting a unity candle or ‘jumping the broom’. I can guide and advise you through these options and help you to make your choices. You would not be allowed such elements within a civil marriage but there are no boundaries within a celebrant-led ceremony.
Similarly, why not have your beloved pet dog with the wedding rings attached to his/her collar? After all, if your canine friend is a special part of your lives, make them a special part of your big day too!
Celebrant Naming Services
Naming ceremonies have become increasingly more popular with many families moving away from the Church. It’s a lovely way to welcome a child into the family and could include a time capsule or tree planting for that lasting memory. This is also an opportunity to welcome adopted children into the family and could be part of a wedding ceremony where two families, with children, are joined together.
Naming Ceremonies can run exactly as you want them to – through the promises you make, you share your love, hope and dreams for your child.
Celebrant Funeral / Memorial services
The loss of your loved one can be a very stressful, emotional time. My promise is to deliver a professional service that celebrates your loved ones life and reflects their character in a fitting tribute. These life centred funerals truly celebrate the life of the person who has died whilst at the same time sensitively acknowledging the grief of those left behind.
Unlike my Humanist colleagues, I am happy to incorporate hymns and other religious content within the service if this is your wish. I often hear people say that they don’t necessarily want a full religious service for their loved one but would like the inclusion of a hymn or the Lord’s Prayer, for example. You have full control over the elements included within the service.
For those people who are terminally ill or simply want to plan their own funeral I would be honoured to help you to achieve the appropriate service for you.
To ensure that your day is memorable my duties will include: a home visit, unlimited telephone and email contact, a draft ceremony for approval, agreeing the order of ceremony and any rituals, the professional delivery of your ceremony and a copy of the ceremony as a keepsake afterwards.
