We conduct and host ceremonies to mark the many important transitions of life, from the joy of birth all the way to the end of our days. These ceremonies are available to members and non-members alike. Whatever you want to commemorate, we work with you to create a ceremony that's true to who you are. You can write your own vows, choose your own readings and music, and decide what happens when. But if you'd like us to help make suggestions, then that's fine too! We have many years' experience of running a wide range of ceremonies, and can offer helpful advice every step of the way.
