Changes in your relationship status

Life is full of twists and turns. New chapters in your life. You change the path you were on and head in a new direction. Perhaps you’ve escaped an abusive relationship. Maybe you are feeling free after a divorce; perhaps you have finally been honest about your sexuality;. Whatever your relationship status, as an independent, alternative celebrant, I’m available to help you make an event of it

divorce and the start of a new chapterDivorce

So, everyone thinks of having a service to celebrate getting married but sometimes it might feel more appropriate to celebrate that divorce!

Have you escaped an abusive relationship?  Maybe you have finally stopped kidding yourself that ‘everything was fine’ and taken the plunge to go it alone?  Or  you feel empowered, you can now follow a different and more appropriate path…. maybe you didn’t initially want to get divorced but the process made you realise what a total arse your ex actually was, and you just didn’t see it at the time….

You might have even divorced amicably but now is the moment for that fresh start.

Its the close of one chapter and the beginning of another.

getting engagedEngagement

Perhaps you and your significant other want to show your commitment by getting engaged but don’t really have plans for a wedding (yet or ever!)  Maybe the engagement is THE moment.  Why not?!

Let me help you plan a service of love and celebration.  No rules, whatever you fancy and wherever you fancy doing it!


being honest about your sexualityComing Out

Have you finally accepted your sexual orientation and want to celebrate true self.  Have you had gender reassignment surgery and want to celebrate your rebirth.  Whatever you want to shout from the rooftops, embrace your true self, and celebrate with those who love the real you.  There are new chapters ready to be written!


we still do, vow renewalHappily Unmarried Bliss

Have you been married a long time.  Maybe you’ve reached a significant anniversary.  Perhaps like me you aren’t married but have been happily unmarried to the same partner for a long time.  Maybe its time to demonstrate your love; share your commitment to each other, with each other, or with your wider family and friends group.  However you want to say “we still do”, it sure is a good excuse for a  celebration!

Other life changing reasons to celebrate

I’m a firm believer in celebrating at every opportunity.

Everyone’s life is a novel.  It’s full of twists and turns.  Highs and lows.  New directions, fresh starts. There are clear chapters and punctuation points.

I believe that many of these chapter starts or ends deserve a celebration and as an Alternative and Independent Celebrant I can help you create the perfect event to capture that moment.

Why might you want a service?  There are so many reasons.

Here are a few new chapters to give you food for thought:

  • Maybe you’re emigrating
  • All your children have grown up and moved out
  • The start of your retirement; everything changes
  • Have you thrown in your career and are going in a different direction
  • You’ve been given the all clear after a frightening or traumatic periods of ill-health
  • Finally, you’ve got your dream job
  • Wow, well done, you’ve graduated
  • You finally came out about your sexuality and are finally able to be true to yourself

There are so many reasons, there are no rules, and as always, as an Alternative and Independent Celebrant, I’m here to help you find the right words and delivery you a service that is as special and chapter turning as the pages in your life’s story. #DaretoBeDifferent
