Ritual Components

  • Greeting guests as they arrive and guiding them through smoke cleansing before they enter the ceremony space (must have outdoor space available or confirmation from venue that smoke is permitted inside).

  • Casting a circle either before or during the ceremony to allow only positive entities and energies.

 

  • Acknowledging and honouring ancestors and loved ones who are no longer with us. 

  

  • Handfasting ritual as part of the ceremony. For an additional fee, I will create a custom handfasting cord for you, in colours of your choice. 

 

  • Broom jumping ritual as part of the ceremony. Note, you will be required to provide your own broom. I can suggest sources for creating a broom yourself, purchasing a pre-made broom, or local makers for custom-made options. 

 

  • For an additional fee, I will create and facilitate a pre or post-ceremony ritual intention station. Your guests will be invited to write down blessings for your union. I will then lead them in a brief ritual to put the intentions into being (either via water, fire, or earth). Fire option available outdoors or in smoke-friendly venue only.

Wedding and Commitment Ceremonies

BESPOKE CEREMONY $375

Truly my most robust and custom offering available. I don't just perform your ceremony, I help you curate and craft it. Together we find the right fit for your day from the flow of events to the ritual and non-ritual elements that resonate for you and that can be presented in a way that is approachable for those in attendance. Your custom ceremony is written by me in partnership with you, including unlimited script revisions and edits and support with vow writing. You will also have unlimited video calls to go over details, answer questions and discuss your ceremony vision.

 

I also offer the personal touch of welcoming your friends and family, connecting directly with your most honoured guests. Unlimited ritual components (see above) can be included in your ceremony with this offering.

We will perform a rehearsal prior to your ceremony that I will facilitate. I will provide guidance with determining setup, flow of movement, people placement, etc. We will perform a run-through of the ceremony (depending on the nature of any included rituals, they may not be performed in full at time of rehearsal) and I will provide support in managing any outside input on your ceremony that may be shared with good intentions, but that are not in-line with your vision. We will also make any changes to script, flow of events, etc. to ensure your vision is perfectly realized.

TAILORED CEREMONY $275

An ideal option if you would like to incorporate some ritual into a simple wedding or commitment ceremony. Together, we will have two video meetings to ensure we are in alignment with the vision of your day. I will tailor a crafted ceremony to include one ritual component of your choosing, and you will have an opportunity to review and provide input on it.

If you have other ceremony elements you wish to include (e.g. a poem or passage) I will happily incorporate this in the the ceremony as well, so long as it is crafted by you. 

For an additional fee, a rehearsal can be added to this offering. 

READY-MADE CEREMONY $225

An ideal option if you’re looking for a simple but lovely marriage or commitment ceremony. I will perform a crafted secular wedding ceremony and ensure all legalities are met for the registration of your marriage. 

For an additional fee, a rehearsal can be added to this offering. 

CIVIL CEREMONY $125

I will perform a  wedding ceremony that includes only the legalities needed for the registration of your marriage.

Other Ceremonies and Offerings

BESPOKE VOW OR DEVOTION RENEWAL CEREMONY $300

Our relationships change and evolve over time, and with it we can feel called to set new vows, devotions or intentions for our marriage or partnership. Likewise, we as people change and grow, and perhaps your original wedding ceremony did not speak to the spirituality or lifestyle that is true to your authentic self.

 

If you're already married or in a long-term committed partnership and are seeking a renewal, this offering is the perfect way to bring validity and more formal symbolism to this commitment renewal. 

Unsure how to put on such an event in a way that your friends and family will understand? This does not have to be a grandiose affair or read as a "second wedding" (though of course it can be!) and as part of this offering, I will coach you on how to name/present the event to your community, so that they understand the nature of the event they're being invited to.

Your custom ceremony is written by me in partnership with you, including unlimited script revisions and edits and support with vow writing. Unlimited ritual components (see above) can be included in your ceremony with this offering.

BABY / CHILD WELCOMING CEREMONY $225

​Welcoming your child into your community is often a rites of passage that is reserved solely for those who participate in organized religions. With this offering, I will perform a crafted ceremony that formally and beautifully welcome your child as a member of your community. 

Together, we will have two video meetings to ensure we are in alignment with the vision of your ceremony.

The ceremony can include components such as assigning and honouring guideparents and a baby naming ritual. For an additional fee, a ritual intention station (using fire, water or earth) can also be included, that engages your family and friends in ritual to bestow blessings on your child.
