Other Bespoke Ceremonies

I create and deliver personalised services and ceremonies to mark a range of important and meaningful milestones, such as weddings, baby blessings & welcome ceremonies, new business or house, relocating abroad, conscious uncoupling and divorce, family unity and adoption, retirement as well as other bespoke occasions. Any ceremony can be topically themed and reflect your personal belief system.

Other ceremonies

A ‘Welcome Ceremony’ gives you the opportunity to welcome an adopted child or children into your family, whilst a ‘Unification Ceremony’ will bring together two step-families and embrace them as one.

A new business or house – Celebrate your achievement and new beginnings; recognise a new start and moving forward with your hopes, dreams and aspirations.

Leaving or Retirement – Celebrate a new chapter in your life, and share the moment with family and friends.

Conscious Uncoupling & Divorce Ceremonies – Whether it’s an amicable break-up or an individual regaining a sense of self, the transition after the end of a close relationship, is a time of change and challenge but also new beginning’s and possibilities. A well-crafted and thoughtful ceremony can offer healing and closure, as well as assist those present in moving forward positively.

Family pets play an important part in many people’s lives. Here at Circle of Life Wiltshire this is very much recognised and a personal pet ceremony can be written and conducted, for your much loved animal that has sadly passed away.

Baby Naming & Blessings

This is a wonderful way to welcome your baby into the world and introduce them into the family and community, as well as acknowledge the commitment you are making to your child. You may also wish to involve grandparents and friends (or guardians) to voice their promises. The ceremony can include music, songs, poems or readings. You can hold a baby naming & blessings in a venue of your choosing, your own home, garden, a hotel or any suitable setting.

Special Touches

Within any service or ceremony you may wish to include the release of: Doves or Butterflies. The fees for these are separate to my own and paid directly to the business supplying them. You can also include the lighting of a candle or candles, within a service or ceremony, with appropriate permission gained.

I cover Wiltshire and areas in the surrounding counties of Somerset, Dorset, Hampshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, and I’m able to travel to other venues and locations further afield by arrangement. Please contact me for a no obligation friendly chat and discuss any questions you may have, alternatively you can email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Tamara Dickson (CCN Cert, RMHN, PTLLS)

    With a background in nursing, customer service and experience in counselling, I am aware of the importance of listening. Through my work in healthcare, together with delivering facilitated teaching and training opportunities, I am adept in both writing and public speaking. I was drawn to the work of a Celebrant, when I witnessed first-hand a service officiated by a celebrant, which celebrated the individual and honoured their life, whilst respectfully marking their passing. As an Independent Civil Celebrant, I get immense satisfaction from creating and delivering a ceremony or service, which reflects the individual, couple or family concerned.

  • “Dear Tamara, I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and my family a very big thank you for the wonderful ceremony last Friday. You did it beautifully and everyone commented on what a lovely speaker you are and how well you came across”
