a Naming, Adoption and Welcoming Ceremonies

 

Whether you have a new-born baby or want a ceremony for an older child, or maybe have adopted a child, a Celebrant Ceremony is a wonderful way to welcome your new family member into the fold. Introducing them to the wider family and community with a specially written ceremony. ‘Guide-parents’ or ‘sparents’ can also have a role.

Maybe you are two families who are joining together?

Make it into a celebration with a Welcoming/Joining Ceremony. It’s a lovely way to mark your new family union and give it the importance and significance it deserves. Celebrate the past the present and future hopes and aspirations.

Extended Service into the Wake Venue

As crematorium services have a very restricted time allowed, I now provide extra time for those that want it at the Wake Venue. Following the funeral ceremony I will act as a ‘master of ceremonies’ at the Wake and invite mourners to share any stories that they wish to or maybe read a poem. I will provide my own portable speaker and I can play pre-chosen music for one hour at the Wake. This can be music that had some relevance or significance to your deceased loved one.

One hour extension

Celebration of Life Ceremony and Wake Combined

Some families prefer to have a short private committal ceremony at the crematorium and have a Celebration of Life Ceremony at a venue of their own choice for extended family and friends. This makes a more relaxed ceremony which is also ideal to invite children to. They can say goodbye to their loved one in a more informal venue with time for poetry, readings, tributes and special music. I will bring my own portable Bose Bluetooth speaker so that we can play music pre-chosen by you and your family.

The venue chosen will need to be big enough to accommodate all family and friends who wish to attend and can be a community hall, a restaurant or pub room hired for the occasion.
A golf/football/rugby club or a hotel venue would also be ideal. It can also be held in your home if you have enough room.

Initial meeting is free of charge

Ceremony or Speech Writing Service

Best Man, Father of the Bride or similar speeches may not come easily to everyone. I can write a totally personal speech based on your relationship and story.

If you would like a Ceremony written but don’t need me to officiate on the day I am happy to craft a bespoke ceremony for your special occasion.
