Hi, I'm Emma

I’ve been crafting and delivering magical ceremonies weaved with ancient tradition for many years. My wish for you, is that you fully connect with your ceremony in a way that sends shimmers and tingles through every fibre of you body. Transporting you into sacred time and space.

Being a member of OBOD, the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids for over 25 years has given me life long experience of ceremony and energetic magic.

All of the weddings, hand-fastings and baby naming ceremonies I’ve conducted have been outdoors. At each ceremony I’ve been blessed to witness many a magical moment. Hearing the howl of a wolf, as we closed a handfasting circle at a wildlife rescue centre was awesome. Being thrilled with the perfect timing of watching the sun set over the sea and sand dunes, as my couple had their wedding photographs taken. Sending our greatest hopes and well wishes into bubbles blown at baby Kyla’s naming ceremony. I know, that together we can create precious moments in time for you too. Moments that will imprint beautiful memories in the hearts and minds of yourself, your family and friends.

What's my ceremony style?

Weddings, Hand-Fastings and Vow Renewals : –

I love using symbology to create more depth and meaning in a ceremony. Incorporating a Hand-Fasting, gives you the opportunity to literally ‘Tie the Knot’ with cords that bind you. It was said that the pledges made with each binding could last ‘a year and a day’, ‘ a lifetime’, ‘for all eternity’ or ‘as long as love shall last,’ the choice is yours! Maybe a ‘Ring Warming Ceremony’ appeals to you? Your friends and family are asked to cusp both of your wedding rings in their hands whilst sending you silent or verbal blessings and well wishes. The emotions emitted from your guests will have you feeling as though you are having the most amazing group hug ever!! If your feeling energetic you could ‘Jump the broom’ together, which is symbolic of stepping into your new life together. There are so many elements we could incorporate, it’s up to you to set the tone, I will follow your lead and come up with ideas for you.

Naming & Blessing Ceremonies :- For a New Baby, An Adopted Child or The Merging of two families.

I can’t think of anything more heartwarming than welcoming a long-awaited and much-loved baby into the world. It is such an honour and a privilege to connect with the child and truly bless them, the path ahead of them, their life. I like to conduct a Blessing & Purification, by calling on and invoking the elements of Fire and Water. The blessing, along with the parents’ promises create quite a reverent moment. So it’s a good idea to follow it up with some fun, utilising songs, poems, readings, maybe planting a tree, burying a time capsule.

Sacred Ceremonies :-

‘A Rite of Passage’ focuses on the major transition time in a teenager’s life, moving from childhood to adulthood. After consulting with you and your child, having gathered key bits of information I will create a ceremony that honours the path your child has taken to get them to where they are today. We will cleanse and bless them in the present moment. We will look forward to your child’s future hopes and dreams and set a positive intention for their path to light up ahead of them.

House Cleansing & Blessing:-

Theses are often performed when moving into a new home, though it can be beneficial to repeat annually, preferably in springtime or at any time when the energy in the home feels sticky, heavy, or negative. Prior to my arrival at your home we will discuss the intention you wish to set, what energy do you want to attract into your home? We will create a specific affirmation for you to use. Together we will slow down time and tune into the heart and vibration of your home. We will use the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water to cleanse each room and call in the blessings of our ancestors. The ceremony will unfold and reveal itself before us as we gently and intentionally move through every room of your home.

Andrea Barker-Hall

Naming Ceremony | 07/08/2012 | Family Back Garden

When my daughter Kyla Joy was born it was an obvious choice to have my mother conduct her naming ceremony. We sat together and decided on the poems and promises we wanted to be included and my mum suggested some personal touches I never would have thought of but which made the day so special. It was a true celebration of a new life, filled with magic and love. Kyla is a very lucky girl to have such an incredible Grandma!Andrea Barker-Hall

Wedding | 05/17/2015 | Gentle Shaws Wildlife Center, Eccleshall, Staffordshire.

We thankfully chose Emma & Jeff to perform our ceremony. The ceremony was deeply spiritual, moving, and professional, the words spoken were heartfelt and beautiful, with a lovely signed certificate at the end of the ceremony. We class this as our real wedding day which was held at Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre near Eccleshall, we flew owls and as the ceremony was taking place we were surrounded by rescued wildlife and truly in touch with nature making this one of the most amazing days of our lives. Thanks for our special day Emma & Jeff. Blessings to all.Alan & Joy

Naming Ceremony | 06/14/2015 | Family Back Garden

Emma presided over the naming ceremony for our son. We could not have been happier with how the day went. As soon as we spoke to Emma we knew she would be perfect for the job. She was so warm and friendly, she asked really insightful questions which made us seriously think about what we wanted from the day, and then she delivered. We laughed, we cried, we sang and we celebrated. We couldn’t have done it without you, Emma. Thank you.Dave Keeling
