“Rituals anchor us to a centre while freeing us to move on and confront the everlasting unpredictability of life.
Robert Fulgham

Anthropologists claim that our instinct for ceremony is part of what defines us as human.

Ceremonies create a space outside the buzz and hustle of everyday life. For a moment we take ourselves into a powerful, sacred space in which we are able to say something about ourselves and our relationships to others, in a way that is simply not possible in the day-to-day world.

It is easy for modern people to forget that there are actually opportunities to express emotions and connect with each other in really significant ways, which lie outside of the everyday. In a ceremony, we transform time, we transform space, and we transform ourselves, to nourish a part which is so often neglected. Most importantly, ceremonies can offer a unique and profound opportunity to express love for the people in our lives, leaving us with a sense of joy and gratitude.

This is innate within us, and it is a vital ingredient in the mix of what makes up a healthy, well-nourished life. To feel like you want to take the step to publicly commit to your partner, acknowledge your baby’s place in your family or create a beautiful funeral for a loved one, you are expressing an authentic, worthwhile and meaningful human desire.

Once you have made the decision to create that sacred space, the important thing is to make it as close to perfect as it can be. That is where I come in. My job is to work with you, to really listen and get to know you. By doing that I can create the ceremony that truly means the world – to you.
