New Beginnings

A Celebration of
the New You

Although naming ceremonies are often associated with younger members of the family I also specialise in helping adults celebrate their change of names.
A naming ceremony should be a joyful celebration of new life and I can help you create a celebration that marks this rite of passage with a day filled with love and happiness. Here are some ideas that I could help you deliver:

Transitioning

If you are somebody who has undertaken a transformative journey of self-discovery and now identify with a different name and gender than you were assigned at birth then this is a truly momentous moment and one that deserves celebration.
I would be truly honoured to help you celebrate this significant moment in your life with sensitivity and joy. Together we can create a safe and inclusive space to celebrate your new identity with love, acceptance, and support from your chosen community.
We can begin by creating a sacred environment where you and your loved ones can connect and reflect on the transformative power of embracing your true self. Through heartfelt readings, personalised vows, and symbolic rituals, we will honour your journey and embrace your new name in a way that feels authentic to you.
My goal is to honour every step you have taken and to ensure that your new name is celebrated and your identity validated Please contact me today to discuss how together, we can craft a truly meaningful and unforgettable experience that reflects your unique journey and celebrates the person you have become.

Divorce

Going through a divorce can be a challenging experience, but reclaiming your name and rediscovering your true identity can empower you to embrace a new chapter in your life.
Such a life change is one that needs marking and celebrating, and I love working with divorcees to help craft an event that celebrates such empowerment with joy and optimism.
Like all my ceremonies I work with you to deliver a truly bespoke event that involve your friends and family.

It's a New Day,
It's a New Life for Me,
And I'm Feeling Good.

Let's Chat

First you need to know whether I am the right person for you so we schedule an informal chat via phone, video or in person to discuss your plans for your momentous day.

Confirmation

If you decide to go ahead with me as your celebrant, I will send you my booking form and make sure the date is saved exclusively for you.
When you send back the form along with a 20% deposit we can get started and I can get to know you.

Meet Up

  • We will meet up (ideally in person) and I can really listen to what you want and help you create a special ceremony which will celebrate this significant moment in your life and make it really special and unique.
  • I can help with ideas and we can include personalised rituals, songs, readings and poems and you can choose where and how you want to celebrate.
  • We can put together a script if you want and include family and or friends or keep it low key and intimate.

The New You Starts Here

  • I will go away and plan the celebration and if appropriate, I will write a speech or script, whatever we have felt is fitting for your unique ceremony.
  • When I have written the script and you have reviewied and I made any changes I will send a payment notice for a further 60% of the total bill, but don't worry...
  • ...you will still have plenty of time to make further changes along the way to ensure that it is perfect as possible.

On The Day

I will arrive early to ensure everything is in order before we start your ceremony.
After the ceremony I will submit my final invoice for the last 20% of the bill.
