What we do
From Non religious to Interfaith.
Celebrated Ceremonies are focussed on your dream day. Your special occasion must reflect the beliefs and customs you value.

My Humanist ceremonies focus on the worth of the person: our strengths, abilities and aspirations for living together and cherishing those closest to us.
Equally, I’m experienced at conducting weddings that incorporate people’s religious perspectives. My expertise is in bringing different faiths together such as a groom brought up in the Church of England marrying a Buddhist from Thailand.
This fusion of philosophy and custom can actually provide for double the fun and meaning. A degree in Theology has equipped me with the knowledge and understanding of different world religions to offer this interfaith specialism.

Other customs that commemorate a couple’s union are Unity Candles, Scottish “Quaich” (Loving cup), Sand Ceremonies, Ring Warming, Gemstones, Medicine wheel, Pagan blessings, Jumping the broom, planting flowers or
