I am registered under the South African Secular Society.
I conduct secular wedding ceremonies. This enables you to shape your wedding service according to your specific needs and wishes, it is uniquely yours.
I offer a legal marriage/partnership to interfaith, same sex/LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Intersex) and opposite-sex couples.
I am offering Baby Welcoming, (Baby Naming, Baby Blessing etc.) ceremonies, in which biological or adoptive parents, family members, friends and the community welcome a child into the world. Secular baby welcoming events are seen as an alternative to traditional religious ceremonies. [Read More...]
Celebration of Life
I am offering bereaved families, relatives and close friends secular funeral services and life-celebration services. The celebrations can be held soon after the funeral or at a later stage, for example, on the departed's birthday, or any other date of significance to them. These events have many names: a celebration of life, a memorial, a wake, a farewell, a sendoff, a free-for-all committal, etc. I can help with these. [Read More...]
Other Services I offer:
The Renewal of Vows & Wedding Anniversaries ceremonies are appropriate for a couple celebrating a significant anniversary.
The Secular Coming of Age Ceremonies are not aligned to any religion. They aim to celebrate a young adult's social and cultural life-milestone.
Note that I am not offering event management and planning services. I will help you with all aspects of the service/ceremony - rituals, celebrations, readings, singing, symbolic and meaningful acts of love that you may choose to use, etc.
