Celebrating life is a natural, healthy and important part of being human. Ceremony allows us to deeply connect with our loved ones, to heal us, and to create happy loving memories that last across lifetimes.
My fee is $700 for life ceremonies - funerals, farewells, baby naming, renewals and celebration-of-love ceremonies.
I ask for a deposit of $100 which secures my services for your special day … the balance is payable just prior to ceremony.
This fee includes;
my commitment to your ceremony only - all my energy is just for you
writing as many drafts of ceremony as required to get it just right
use of table, chair, cloth and pen
use of microphone
a small tumbled Rose Quartz stone - the stone of love! ... a little thank you gift and keepsake.
Travel fee of approx. $0.80 / km for ceremonies located outside the greater Hobart area to cover travel cost
commitment + renewal ceremonies
Commitment and vow renewal ceremonies are a wonderful celebration of love, with no legal obligations or boundaries, we simply have the freedom to create the most perfect ceremony for you.
'One-day people will touch and talk perhaps easily, and loving be natural as breathing and warm as sunlight. People will untie themselves, as string is unknotted, unfold, stretch and spread their fingers. Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea... and people will smile without reason, even in the winter, even in the rain.' ... A.S.J. Tessimond
farewell + funeral ceremonies
A powerful farewell ceremony, or funeral, can begin to heal us when we feel immense loss. Nurturing you, honoring your love one, and truly celebrating their life, will warm hearts and soothe souls… grounding us at a time when we may need it most, and surrounding us with immense love.
'I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.' ... Mary Elizabeth Frye
baby naming ceremony
Your closest family, friends, guardians and mentors come together to celebrate the beauty of new life – this just may be the most precious gift in the world.
'Love is the food of the universe. It is the most important ingredient in life. Children go towards love; they thrive on love and grow on love.' ... Sanaya Roman
