Celebration Of Life Services
I’m Patricia Tidy and I am a registered celebrant with the Association of Independent Celebrants. I am also a One Spirit Interfaith Minister and I am a member of the Interfaith Ministers Association.
As your experienced celebrant/minister I can offer you a day to truly remember. A ceremony that includes your spiritual traditions or religious beliefs, and for those with no particular religious or spiritual traditions I will create a ceremony that speaks to your heart.
The law states that each marriage must be registered, very much like we register births and deaths. However, this does not mean that your wedding has to take place in a church or temple; or as a civil ceremony at the Registrar’s Office. The legal paperwork can be carried out prior to the ceremony leaving you free to have a day that is meaningful and memorable.
With my help and guidance a ceremony will be created that fits your requirements and in a place of your choice. It can be themed or traditional and the venue can be anywhere from a beach at sunset, to a hotel that specializes in weddings, to a gathering in your own garden. The venues are endless.
For those who would prefer a Handfasting I am a Pagan Priestess, taking further training in Egypt back in 2002 and ordained as a Priestess of Isis. I have also trained in the traditions of the Native American and the rich diversity of their culture. And so whether you wish to have a Pagan ceremony; or simply just something ‘different’ in a Stone Circle or a Woodland Glade I can offer you this experience.
I am also sensitive to the needs of brides and grooms who have been previously married and have been either widowed or divorced and are now seeking happiness with a new partner. And I also offer sensitively co-ordinated same sex marriages.
Whatever your needs your welcome to discuss them with me. Perhaps in the first instance you may wish to visit my website and read for yourself what others say.
