Ceremony of Life/ Funeral/ Memorial from £200
N.B. The cost of my services is usually covered by the Funeral Directors as part of the cost of the funeral. You will only pay me the £200 if you are organising your own ceremony (as in a later memorial ceremony).
You may request me as a celebrant, even if there is a funeral plan.
Funeral Directors are happy for a family to choose their own celebrant.
I do not charge in the tragic circumstances of the loss of a child.
A Funeral for your Pet from £100
· A list of specially selected poems/ musical choices sent to you
Many people are turning to this ceremony in place of a full legal marriage, when they wish to celebrate their love and commitment with family and friends. I will supply ribbons, lace and braids and give suggestions for readings and wishes.
Ring Warming from £35
I will commission the making of a beautiful little pillow that suits the colour and style of your wedding. On your wedding day, just before you take your vows the rings will be tied to the pillow and handed around all your guests. They will send loving thoughts, prayers and good wishes into the rings, until they are returned 'warmed' by all the loving attention. This is a lovely way of including everyone and is a happy and moving part of a wedding ceremony.
Memory Box from £55
I have a collection of unique vintage boxes, or I can arrange for a box to be hand painted and decorated to suit.
Breaking of Glass Ceremony from £40
Two champagne flutes (safely within a bespoke bag) are stomped upon and smashed. It’s a suitably dramatic way to celebrate the end of the formal ceremony and the beginning of the celebrations.
Wine Ceremony or Loving Cup Ceremony from £30 (depending on the choice of drink and the glasses)
I have a selection of beautiful and unusual glasses which can be kept after the ceremony to use on special anniversaries
Unity Candle from £60
This is also popular in Naming Ceremonies. Parents and Specially chosen guardians or mentors all light the child's candles
I can source either large ‘church’ or pure beeswax candles and will create bespoke candles which may be kept as a keepsake.
Ceremonial Bread from £35
The Broom Jumping Ceremony is based upon tradition which symbolises the clearing away of negativity with a sweep of the broom and creating a threshold for the couple to cross over into their new life together. It’s a lively and visually impressive ceremony, especially if the broom is decorated to match the Wedding’s theme colours. I can source and decorate a broom for you.
I can find First Editions, leather Bindings and all sorts of unique and beautiful books.
