Renewal of vows [we still do and always will]
If you have a special anniversary coming up, why not make it super special by having a renewing your vows ceremony?
You might have been married for many years or maybe the first time around you had a registry wedding; maybe you were married abroad or maybe you’ve come through a particularly difficult time. Whatever the reason, why not take this opportunity to declare just how much you mean to each other. You can include your family and friends or maybe you’d prefer just the two of you! Let me know what you’d like and I’ll conduct a meaningful and loving ceremony like no other.
*Baby naming ceremony
Do you have a new baby that you’d like to welcome into the world and introduce to your wider family and friends? Maybe you have a new grandson or granddaughter? It could be that you’re uniting two families and want to build a sense of belonging or have a child through the adoption process that you want to welcome into your life. A naming ceremony can provide the perfect opportunity for you to declare your love and commitment to your child or children.
*Funerals and memorial services
We all deal with grief differently but a personalised and meaningful funeral service can be the start of the healing process. By meeting with family and friends and listening to those funny and poignant stories, I get a sense of the person and what made them unique and special. Then I conduct a unique service that reflects the life of your loved one, including their experiences, character, qualities and beliefs.
As an English Celebrant in France I can use a mix of religious, non-religious and spiritual elements to produce a ceremony that’s uplifting and positive because it celebrates life.
*Scattering Of Ashes
Sometimes the world moves too fast for us and we’d like more time; more time to adjust and take stock; more time to come to terms with our grief. A Scattering of Ashes Ceremony can be held weeks or months after the funeral service: this gives you that extra time to think, plan and organise your special farewell ceremony.
Our funeral is the last event that’ll ever happen to us and we never see it! More and more people have funeral plans and requests noted via Funeral Directors but very few people actually think about what will be said during their funeral service.
Maybe you have a particular piece of music you’d like played or hymns sung? Maybe you’ve special memories or words of thanks that you’d like spoken; I can do this on your behalf. As an English Celebrant in France I will write you a service that reflects who you are: your loves and passions; your stories and what makes your heart sing.
This service is called ‘The Last Word’ and it gives you just that.
