Sky Alice Joy Burton-Smith
I am an independent celebrant based in West Yorkshire, who creates bespoke ways of marking any moment of life. Whether it be welcoming a child into your life, a joining of two people in partnership or celebrating the life of a loved one, we can work together to structure your ceremony the way you want, with the words you wish to hear and the content that means the most to you.
Celebration is something I have always had a passion for and enjoy bringing people together to mark special occasions in my own life. I come from a creative arts background, where celebrations are key to bringing communities together. Using the arts to design personalised ceremonies has been an exciting way of combining these passions.
I have formally trained with the Fellowship of Celebrants in Family Ceremonies and in Rites of Passage with Dead Good Guides. This along with my drama training and creative arts work gives me plenty of experience and creativity to provide the most unique and special occasion for you.
A ceremony is a formal celebration, marking key moments in life. It allows us to acknowledge a transition or rites of passage from new beginnings to life endings.
Ceremonies can take any form and be created for a range of reasons from welcoming new life into the world, to celebrating the union of a relationship, recognising landmarks and milestones in life, or reflecting and celebrating the life of a loved one.
Ceremonies are used all over the world and often have a religious and cultural focus. But a ceremony can be anything you want it to be, filled with rituals and content that is bespoke and personal to you, giving you exactly what you want, to mark that 'star in the sky' moment.
Creating your own Ceremony - How does it work?
Over a cuppa of course!
Send me a message with a brief outline of what you are wanting to mark with a ceremony, and to arrange a free no obligation chat. We can discuss the type of ceremony you are wanting and agree the type of package that would suit your event.
The booking form will be sent with further detail and confirmation of contract.
We shall meet or video chat (depending on location) to start creating the personalised and bespoke ceremony for your event at our agreed fee.
After our initial meeting I will send you the order of ceremony and script for final amendments.
On the day I will conduct the ceremony at your event.
To remember your ceremony, I will provide you with a keepsake copy of the script and certification of the event.
