Frequently Asked Questions

i have done my best to create a site that is informative. I have compiled here a list of frequently asked questions. If you do not find an answer to your question here, please contact me. Where are you based? I live in Brodick, Isle of Arran. How far will you travel to do a ceremony? I prefer to work on the Isle of Arran, but for cremations I can travel to the mainland. Will we meet you before the day? Ideally yes, we should meet at the location and walk through the ceremony. If you are on Zoom or email, we can often work the ceremony out that way. For funerals a home visit prior to the ceremony is included in the cost How much will it all cost? Prices start at £250 for baby naming and welcomings, Vow renewals and Elderings, and £200 for home blessings. This includes creating and conducting your bespoke ceremony. Wedding blessings, handfastings, and marriages start at £450. Do we have to be pagan for you to marry us? If you do not hold any specific religious beliefs, but you would still like a spiritual ceremony, I can discuss your requirements and, with your help, write a ceremony which celebrates the event in the way you feel most appropriate. Can you find a location for us? We don’t do this as so much is down to personal preference - yours! However we are happy to make suggestions of locations that we have already used and know. Please see our links page. What about catering etc? I write and conduct your ceremony and ensure that all of that part goes to plan. The rest is up to you. How do I book you? For funerals most people go through their Funeral Director, so just ask for me by name. If I haven’t worked with them before, please just give them this website address. Some people wish to do the funeral arranging themselves, and I am happy to work with you on this, though my fee will be higher as I will be spending more time with you. For other ceremonies contact me directly, we can have a chat on the phone or Zoom and see if I am the celebrant for you - I hope I am! Once your date is set I ask for a non-refundable ‘keep the date’ booking fee of £100.
