Why a Celebration Ceremony?
Life is an evolution and a series of achievements and rites of passage. Family life is abundant life; there is rarely a dull moment as children grow through their lives, and as adults grow through their rites of passage. Acknowledgement of our achievements in life, and love for our families inspires an endless possibility for ceremony; there is always so much to celebrate.
Baby Blessings, Child Naming, Adoption Welcomes, Coming of Age, Weddings, Hand-fasting, Blending Families, Baby/Wedding Showers, Reunions, Rites of Passage, Significant Birthdays, Divorce/Endings, New Parenthood, House Blessings, Relocations, Career Achievement, Healing Circles, Retirement, Public Dedications, End of Life
In nearly every culture throughout history, momentous events were marked with some degree of fanfare. Rites of Passage were marked with spirited rituals and colourful ceremonies, helping people prepare for life’s journeys. Communities were tightly knit, and everyone shared both the joys and the sorrows that accompanied life’s changes.
Today, there is a rekindling of ‘celebration’ as an acknowledgement, commemoration or honouring of a significant moment in the Circle of Life: creating tomorrow’s memories, today.
As a Multi-Faith Minister and Spiritual Celebrant, I well versed in the history and practice of ritual, ceremony and traditions in world cultures and religions, and I am unrestricted by religious or civil formalities. Whether your beliefs are secular, religious, spiritual or interfaith, or if you simply wish to celebrate in a manner of your own choosing, I can help you create a ceremony and a celebration that will be meaningful and memorable.
I work with you to design a ceremony to mark your very special, unique and deeply meaningful occasion…

My ceremonies are tailored to your needs in a way that fulfils your hopes and desires for your special day. Contact me to discuss your requirements.
Creating Ceremonies for Love, Life & Loss
“My father was not a religious person, but no less a humanitarian and Beverley’s approach helped give a perfect reflection of his life, down to earth yet still sufficiently spiritual.
She was a huge source of support and encouragement in giving my Dad a most fitting send-off with her quietly dignified, compassionate but highly competent & confident manner.
Beverley gave helpful suggestions enabling me to find a focus for my short eulogy, and relieved me of all unnecessary funereal administration.
Her insightful readings at the service gave family & friends comfort and food for thought; suffice to say several asked for her details with members of their own families in mind.”Suzanne
Thank you Beverley Gearey with all my heart for conducting the service for the funeral of my beloved friend Ingrid.
“Beverley understood who she was even though she had never met her.
The service was very spiritual and adapted to everyone’s faith, kind and thoughful, profound and loving. Celebrating Ingrid’s life and helping all of us in that painful moment”.
I wouldn’t choose anyone else than Beverley.Florence
