Celebrating significant or milestone birthdays can be a powerful and beautiful experience as well as a lot of fun. I can help you to create a uniquely personal ceremony with beautiful memories to commemorate your birthday and to treasure.
Celebrating your birthday can be fun and transformative. A well constructed ritual can help us reconnect with parts of ourselves we want to reclaim, release what no longer serves, bond with family and friends and prepare for the next stage of life. Supporting and affirming our confident steps into the future. You may not want a celebrant or MC at your birthday celebration, I can help you create a beautiful ceremony for you to undertake yourself with others or on your own.
Opportunities to mark life transitions and acknowledge the shifts in our life stage and role are important to us all. Rites of passage are a basic human need that help us make sense of our world. They provide structure, balance, a sense of meaning and expectation and that provides a sense of well being. Ceremonies, rituals and celebrations can provide a sense of connection to another individual, families, cultures, societies, humanity or to whatever we consider divine or sacred.
Most humans celebrate at least some rites of passage, be it a birthday, wedding or commitment, blessing or naming a new born baby or pet, or the life of a loved one who has passed. We often mark, even in small ways, significant events in our lives – a promotion may be marked by a visit to a special restaurant, a child’s last day of kinda with a cake, you might ritually cleanse a new home or simply raise a glass of champagne.
Enhance your life journey with an individually crafted ceremony that reflects you and your beliefs.
If you want a simple celebration or a complex ritual, I have a broad range of celebration and ceremony ideas and samples and extensive knowledge of ceremony and ritual. Together we can create a beautiful, life affirming ceremony for your birthday.
For every ceremony, I take time to know you and individually design and write your ceremony. Your ceremony will be a unique, personal, meaningful and beautiful reflection of you, your needs, values and personality. I listen to you and with creativity, experience and passion help you create the perfect ceremony for you.
A beautiful Commemorative Booklet of the ceremony will be produced and given to you to keep. You will also receive a Commemorative Certificate on the day. Officiating your ceremony is the culmination of many hours of preparation, which is included in the price. I will meet with you at least once to listen to you, to know you and what you want. We can meet at my place or yours or at a mutually convenient place, we can even meet on Skype. To create your perfect ceremony we will be in contact as often as needed by phone, email, skype or google hangouts.
On the day, I will be there at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to set up and check equipment. A PA system will be provided if required. I can also bring along a table, chair and cloth for signing the certificate. I am happy to wear appropriately themed clothes to fit with your ceremony.
A free no obligation consult and quote either in person or over the phone is provided for all ceremonies. The fee is determined by the complexity of the ceremony, the number of people involved, location and day of the week. However, the prices below will give you an indication.
