Tidal Ceremonies

Greetings! You have reached the home of Tidal Ceremonies — offering professionally-crafted, unique-to-you, memorable and meaningful life-cycle celebrations that acknowledge your once-in-a-lifetime moments.

I am a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant  professionally trained through the Celebrant Foundation and Institute (http://www.celebrantinstitute.org/).   I have specialization in Ceremonies Across the Life Cycle, Weddings and Funerals, Healings and Transitions.  I am an ordained minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry offering inclusive, eclectic and professional ceremonial experiences.  

As of August 2021, Tidal Ceremonies is situated on Gabriola Island on B.C.’s west coast.  I am pleased to create ceremonies for whatever life brings your way.   I am available for weddings and other life cycle celebrations.  I also create seasonal and sustenance ceremonies either for individuals, small groups, or public settings. With decades of experience in ritual development and study, I bring the vast world of ceremonial ideas to you. My experience in university academics has given me writing and public speaking skills to help your moments shine.  Please see My Gallery for photos and reviews.

My Service to you includes: ceremony research and resource materials; in-depth consultation and writing of your ceremony; script consultations and updates via email; your complete approval of the final script; a rehearsal as requested;  consultations with your other vendors if needed; officiating of the ceremony on the agreed day; and keepsake documentation of your ceremony. 

The cost for such a fully-personalized ceremony is typically $650.  I am also available for simpler ceremonies starting at about $250.  I will not nickel-and-dime giving a firm quote for the full service.  But each situation is unique …. so the process begins with a free, no-obligation chat over a cup of tea or coffee.  Let’s see if we generate rapport and co-create your ceremonial event.  

A celebrant works with clients to co-create events to acknowledge their life cycle passages.  We all recognize the wedding ceremony as one of life’s rites of passage.  There is so much more to celebrate.  Consider also expecting parents and births, coming-of-age ceremonies, graduations or business openings, engagements, house blessings, empty-nesting, separations and divorces, retirements, pet welcomings, and departures, as well as healing and recovery rituals.

We need ceremony in our busy lives more than ever.  We zip along missing the opportunity to stop and breathe at life’s growths, losses and changes of all kinds.  When you feel a need to honour life’s passage , whether in private or public, I am committed to supporting your path with a professionally-written ceremony delivered in a manner that reflects your unique life-style and personality.   I will create the ceremony you wish you had time to create.
