Enchanting the Void
I am an experienced Celebrant, Ritualist & Poet, weaving a unique magic into weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies; often being asked to assist creating a holding/ritual space at ceremonies celebrating the eightfold wheel of the year. This is often at sacred sites or festivals. Woven in to all I offer is my love of song and music – Enchanting the Void.
“There is something so wholesome, so joyous, so healing in song. And when we join together in groups and sing, it is even more powerful.”
SONGS FOR THE LAND – INCORPORATING SOUND AND SILENCE
Enchanting the Void
A western form of sacred singing. Re-imagining and re-energising the songlines of our lands through the magic of shared sound, coupled with the healing of the charged silence which follows. Quite literally – we heal each other! How beautiful-and so simple. Listen for yourself!
Listen for yourself!

Poet . Writer
“.. I do have a language; and there was a time, when more of your people could understand it.”
BEAUTY, INTENSITY, EMOTION AND EXPRESSION
Expression through Words
Poetry is also a key part of my ‘tapestry’ and the way I express many things.
“Druidry (though I didn’t know it by that name at the time) has been ever present in my life.”
VITAL AND DYNAMIC NATURE SPIRITUALITY
Uniting the Earth, The Arts and Creativity
Typically I work with prayerfulness, stillness and a deep reverence for the Earth. My life ethos is embodied in this Druid triad;
Hearth as Altar – Work as Worship – Service as Sacrament.
“It was a celebration of love. Blissful and gorgeous; heartfelt and ridiculously emotional”
BESPOKE NATURAL WEDDING SERVICES
Typically I work with a couple to co-create a ceremony which fully reflects and embodies their beliefs, and most importantly, captures their love for each other.
CELEBRATING NEW LIFE
The beauty of coming together with family, friends and relatives to witness the naming of a young infant is both humbling and celebratory.
HONOURING THE DEPARTED
More commonly known as funerals, I strive to construct a ceremony reflecting and honouring the true essence of the individual whose life we are celebrating together.
“A coming together in prayerfulness and playfulness to create a meaningful celebration.”
MEANINGFUL CELEBRATION THROUGH PRAYER AND PLAY
Honouring and Witnessing
I perform rites of Passage for an individual or group – or for those celebrating a particular phase of the year or moon cycle.
