I’ve come to understand that the act of the ceremony is itself the tradition, celebrating that which makes us uniquely human. My role as a Celebrant is to use my training and experience to help create a ceremony that reflects the values, personalities, and needs of people marking an important life moment. By talking people through the various aspects, including readings, music, people to include, and other elements, I get a sense of what their ceremony should look like and write text to reflect that intention. I perform weddings, memorials, baby namings, and adult name changing ceremonies.
