Ceremonies Celebrating Happy Times

Civil Partnerships
& Engagements


Love is not finite. It doesn’t run out. Anyone who has children will tell you that they love all their children, so why can’t the same be true of our other relationships? If you have a polyamorous relationship, currently, it’s illegal to officially marry. It doesn’t mean that we can’t create ways to celebrate your love with friends and loved ones. 

Our relationships are for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Let’s mark them all!

I’m so happy that your loved one has popped the question and that you said yes! How exciting! Now I know you’re eager to get planning and booking everything, but I’d like to tell you about a few things first. Wedding or marriage? Religious or humanist or independent celebrant? Registered venue or outside or something else? Handfasting/sand ceremony/write your own vows or standard ones. There’s a lot to consider.


FROM £680

There’s a ton of information out there about getting hitched. But some places won’t give you all the information about your choices. I’m a big advocate for information and making an informed choice. So, buckle up, grab a cuppa and some biscuits and let’s get started. Skip what you don’t need, make a list and keep this in a safe place. Currently, there is just one venue in the UK that you can legally be hand fasted. This is in The Goddess Temple in Glastonbury. I know this as my wife and I married here in 2017 on Samhain. It’s a lovely little venue with wonderful Priestesses who will organise the ceremony for you. The Temple is always beautifully dressed and feels wonderful inside. But what exactly is a hand fasting?

Naming Ceremonies & Welcome To The World

FROM £250

We’ve just had a baby and want to celebrate in some way but we’re not religious. What do we do? Firstly; CONGRATULATIONS! I’m so happy that your family has expanded. Secondly, you’re not alone in wanting to celebrate this in a different way. There’s definitely alternatives and I’m really happy to discuss them with you. What a Naming Ceremony isn’t: It’s not a legal ceremony. Guardians may be appointed as legal carers if anything should happen to the parents, however this is done separately in a legal office and is not the role of a Naming Ceremony.

Framily Celebrations

FROM £450

There’s a famous quote - “you can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family”.


I don’t believe this is quite true. I have both types of family. In some ways, my chosen family have stronger bonds than my blood family. I’ve been fully accepted and loved for who I am. Sometimes blood family put conditions on acceptance. Their love is completely conditional.


Chosen family or framily (friend/family) usually comes about due to times of extreme need and rejection- homophobia for one. Other times, children are chosen rather than born. The love you have for an adopted or step child is no less than for a birth child.


Your family is valid- let’s celebrate that!

Besties Forever

FROM £250

"Having a soulmate is not always about love. You can find your soulmate in a friendship too.” – Unknown.


So much emphasis is placed on romantic love that it’s easy to forget the people who have been by our side throughout it all.


Our besties have held our hands through our worries, listened to us cry over breakups, gotten drunk with us and laughed with us 'til we’ve cried. They’ve usually known us for many years and will be with us when romantic relationships end. They may know us better than any lover will.


Why not celebrate this love by marking it to say how important you are to each other?

Got ideas for a different ceremony?
