Commitment Ceremonies

$450 Sat/Sun/Special Days eg Valentine’s Day; $400 Monday-Friday

Celebrate your love with a personal and joyfully unique commitment ceremony. Traditional or themed, simple or elaborate, small or large, every ceremony is special and deserves special treatment.

Handfastings

$300

Handfasting is an old tradition of joining two people with the intention of marrying – the couple would handfast and then formalise their lifelong commitment after a year and a day. In modern times it often forms part of the commitment ceremony or marriage, but a newly engaged couple can also celebrate with a standalone handfasting. This can be performed on its own, or as a preliminary to a wedding or commitment ceremony (package discount available). 

Vow Renewals

$450 Sat/Sun/Special Days eg Valentine’s Day; $400 Monday-Friday

Whether you’re marking a major anniversary milestone, celebrating a reconciliation or you got married last year and want to do it all again, it’s always a good time for a vow renewal! Recreate your original special day or do something totally new that expresses who you are now.

Baby Naming/Blessings & Adoptions

$300. Special price $250 if held on the child’s birthday (proof of birthdate required)

The addition of a child to a family is always a special event, and can be just as personal as a love commitment ceremony. A newborn baby or precious adopted child can be welcomed in a naming or blessing which will make them feel special and very much a part of their new family.

New Home/Business Blessings

$300

Moving into a new home, or starting a new business, is another of the most life-changing experiences. A ceremony of blessing and welcoming is a way to make the space yours, and officially “open the door” to the new opportunities coming your way.

Funerals and Life Celebrations

Price neg (approximately $350-400).

Celebrant fees are often paid through your Funeral Director, based on their itemised fee structure and their choice of celebrant as part of your package. Celebrants specialising in funerals are committed to providing the same personal and caring service whether they are chosen by the Funeral Director or the family. However, you do have the ability to choose your own if you have a preferred celebrant.

If you would like me to officiate at the celebration of your loved one (or even yourself), please contact me to discuss your plans and options.

Pet Funerals

$200 (barter negotiable on this service only)

Many families and animal carers do not receive, or allow themselves, the opportunity to mark the passage of a loved animal. I believe that your feelings at this time are just as important, so I offer loving and family-oriented life celebrations for animals at a reduced rate. I’m also happy to negotiate equivalent barter for this special service.

Life Changes, Transitional Ceremonies

$250-350 (neg)

Anything at all that is significant in your life, that you would like to mark – Coming-of-Age, moving away, divorce, release of an old way of life, recovery from a long or difficult illness (eg the end of cancer treatment) – is worthy of a ceremony. Get in touch to see what can be created for you (or even your furry friends! Yes, I do pet weddings!)

Women’s Circles

$360 (or $20 per participant if packaged with one of the ceremonies above), minimum 8 people

A special treat for a baby or bridal shower, for the morning of your wedding or at any stage in a woman’s life – a ceremony celebrating and bonding the women and girls among your family and friends. Several activity themes and more relaxing options available, depending on your personal style.
