in a church. Today, we are still able to celebrate a
new life and welcome a new child into the world, and
express our hopes and wishes for the child, through
a name-giving ceremony.

Marriage is a journey, which we know isn't
always easy. Successful marriages are those built between
people who not only love but respect each other, and

may be in circumstances where the legal step of marriage
is not available to cement your partnership, or the
traditional institution of marriage is not part of your
belief system. But it may still be just as important
for you and your partner to publicly commit to your
love for each other and your intention to share your
lives together. I can help you to find an appropriate

as a man and a woman committing to share your lives
is one you do not wish to express as marriage, but is
nevertheless just as solemn and important an affirmation
to each other.
OTHER IMPORTANT EVENTS
Life can take many turns. An appropriate
ceremony can mark these and other events, bring some
things to closure or open others to fate and opportunity.
Bring me your milestone and I will help you to celebrate
it, mark it or share it.
