‘In life bonds are tested and tightened. And our landscapes shift, in sunshine and in shade. There is light. There is. Look for it. Look for it shining over your shoulder, on the past. It was light where you went once. It is light where you are now. It will be light, where you will go again.’ Call the Midwife ~Jennifer Worth
In life there are so many ups and downs that change our world and challenge our purpose. At 54 years of age my life was turned upside down and inside out with the unexpected death of my beautiful daughter. The following years were filled with much soul searching as to my purpose and role in life. This quote from Call the Midwife sparked my inner being. It was then I began to look for the light and found what I believe to be my true vocation.
The light for me came in the direction of the celebrant qualification. I am so excited at the prospect of meeting and working with you. I am excited at the challenge of crafting and creating your unique, bespoke scripts, for those special and memorable occasions.
I am a Heart-Led Celebrant, trained to create personalised ceremonies for all those special occasions.
You may wish to share your commitment and love in a celebration of your union. Your bespoke ceremony would tell of your love story, how you met, how your relationship blossomed and flourished and led you to your special day. You may wish to include the ancient Celtic ritual of handtying or the age old tradition of jumping the Besom or broom as it is more commonly known. You may like me to create a ritual personal to you as a couple, or that has a link to your family, culture, and heritage. Imagination and creativity hold no boundaries or limits as I create an original and customised script for your unique celebration.
Many parents wish to publicly welcome and acknowledge the safe arrival of a baby/child into their family, be this a biological or adopted child. I can create the most amazing naming ceremony, meaningful and bespoke to your requirements. The ceremony can be hosted in a setting of your choice, be this your garden or in a local beauty spot.
The end of a loved one’s life can be so difficult for the family and friends left behind. A celebration of life honours your loved one. Following a meeting with you, I will create a script that incorporates your cherished memories, thoughts, and wishes to reflect the life of your loved.
You may wish to have your ceremony at a crematorium, or you may wish a graveside ceremony. It may be that you would like a ceremony for the interment or scattering of ashes at a favourite or memorable location. I will guarantee my support and guidance as I walk with your loved one’s final journey. Religious elements can be incorporated into your ceremony if you so wish.
Whatever the occasion may be, your script will be crafted and created with your most treasured thoughts and memories, to celebrate your special and important occasion. Located in Whitworth, Lancashire, I am happy to travel for ceremonies in and around this location.
