Listen. Design. Deliver.

Independent Civil Celebrant who specialises in creating your perfect wedding or funeral ceremony.

At Moments To…the aim is to create the perfect life event ceremony for you and your family. By LISTENING to your ideas, the ceremony you want is DESIGNED and DELIVERED with honesty and respect on the day.

An Independent Celebrant is not tied to a faith, religion, or cultural expectation. By using an Independent Celebrant, you get to include the elements of a ceremony that are important to you. If you are not a follower of a faith or religion, but like a certain reading – we include it. However, if you are an atheist – that is how the ceremony will be designed.

I LISTEN to your ideas to DESIGN the ceremony you want me to DELIVER.

By using an Independent Civil Celebrant for your funeral or non-legal wedding ceremony, you will get more control over the words shared with family and friends; the words and ideas will have more resonance, and the ceremony itself will have bespoke design and therefore be truly unique for you and your loved ones.


This is a very exciting time for a couple and it is ALL about the two of you. From a quiet wedding ceremony with the minimum of people to a giant party, it is about what makes this celebration both special and right for YOU.

  • Face to Face meetings to establish how to create your perfect ceremony

  • Choice of Wedding Traditions to create your own bespoke ceremony

  • YOU choose the music, the readings, the best version of your story

  • Elegant certificate to mark the day


This is a very difficult time for all involved. By choosing an Independent Celebrant Funeral Ceremony you can make the celebration of your loved one’s life a very personal ceremony.

YOU choose the music, the readings, the topics for the eulogy. YOU choose if you want friends and family to speak, or contribute to the ceremony with letters to the deceased.

  • An interview meeting (face-to-face or phone call)

  • Special ceremony additions including Remembrance Candle, Memory Jar/Box and Remembrance Planting

  • YOU choose the music, the readings, the topics for the eulogy

  • Presentation copy of the ceremony with wildflower seeds to grow in memory of your loved one
