What do I offer?
A wedding ceremony is about celebrating the union of two people who are committing the rest of their lives together. The most important element of this ceremony is that it means the most to the two people partaking in it. This is why celebrant led ceremonies can be so much more than a registrar led event. Yes, the registrar legalizes the process and this is something a celebrant can’t yet but Star in the Sky Ceremonies can create you a bespoke, personalized, unique celebration that can mean so much more and make your wedding completely individual for you.
Why choose Sky for your wedding?
A celebrant led ceremony has no restrictions on where it can take place, when it can happen and how it can be conducted for. This means if you dream of that outdoor wedding, long to say your vows by a waterfall or would like your ceremony to be at the same location as your wedding reception this can happen. The most important part of a wedding is the words that are spoken and the content that is shared, making it a celebration to be remembered.
One of my most favorite celebrations is when a child is welcomed into a new family with a naming ceremony. Whether this is through birth or adoption, it can be a life moment we can over look to formally mark unless we look at more traditional religious events such as christenings. What I love about naming’s is that they don’t have to link to a religion, they can have whatever content you would like to welcome your child into your family.
Naming Ceremonies can take many different forms and happen at any given time. It could be a celebration which happens at the start of the child’s life but can also happen when the child is older so they can participate more actively in the ceremonial aspects and might even hold childhood memories of the celebration throughout their life. It could also involve all siblings rather than individual children. I chose to name my own 3 children in this way and we had a naming ceremony for all of them when they were 7, 4 and 2.
Why choose Sky for your naming ceremony?
Naming ceremonies are about taking time to celebrate your child being part of this world and showing a circle of support for the child among close family and friends. The content can be completely tailored and personalized for the family with imaginative storytelling, music and interactive elements to create a unique and memorable event.
Renewal of Vows
Marking a new journey in life, celebrating a key milestone or renewing a set of vows you have committed to can be something we over look and forget about. Whether it is marking a new transition or crossroad in your life, like a coming of age, a new career path or life style change this can be marked and celebrated as part of a bespoke ceremony. By marking this moment it can bring a sense of importance and affirm this new path you are about to embark on with close family and friends giving it clarity, support and importance to then be able to embrace this new stage with a foundation of love and confidence. Renewing vows is also a ceremony that can be particularly powerful in bringing new life to a relationship, supporting the love and commitment of that couple into their future years.
Why choose Sky for your renewal of vows?
A renewal or landmark ceremony can take any form, in any location and be created to represent exactly what you wish. There are lots of ideas of words, readings, poems, songs and music along with ritual and ceremonial moments that can be included to make the event just right for you.
Marking the end of a loved ones life can be one of the most difficult thing to face but also one of the most special ways of marking their life. It gives a time for reflection, sharing memories and celebrates the life journey by creating a unique ceremony with family and friends. It is an alternative way of saying goodbye with many personal touches which are meaningful to the life they have led.
You could make plans for your own funeral or for a loved one. The most important thing is this ceremony represents the true essence of the person we are celebrating through words, music and a coming together of all the people that wish to say goodbye, reflect and remember, in a personalized celebration of life.
Why choose Sky for your funeral?
A celebration of life can be secular or incorporate religious elements, it is a personal preference of the life that is being celebrated and what they would have wished for. The ceremony can take place as part of the funeral which includes a service and a committal in the same day or alternatively it could be a separate memorial that is planned days, weeks or even a year after a smaller initial funeral. This gives some time to reflect and an opportunity for many people to contribute or share memories as part of the ceremony.

Our Wedding Day
Sky did a fantastic job of our ceremony on 14 May 2022. She really got to know us through regular communication in person, email, text and phone calls.
Sky’s service is bespoke and beautiful, this was so personal and unique to us. It was an absolute honour to have Sky as a significant part of our big day.
Would recommend Sky’s services a million %, thank you so much xxx
Sky was our celebrant after having moved our wedding several times due to covid. We officially tied the knot last year with a small registrar service and held our dream day on our 1 year anniversary. Sky was able to take our story and build a beautiful service that was more than we could have ever planned. She listened and understood us as a couple and had our guests tearing up and laughing along!
Thank you so much Sky we will never forget our day made more special by you!
Oh where can we start. From start to finish we received such care and attention to detail. Sky was quite simply put ‘perfect’. Sky is incredible. She put together a perfect naming day script for our beautiful daughters day. Personal and friendly. Everyone commented on how amazing the ceremony was. We are blessed to have her part of our special day.
Thank you so much Sky.
