Hi, I am Claire Jones, a celebrant since 2015. My role in your event, is to discover some of your story and help you find 'ways of expressing something of yourself' as we find the right type of ceremony, ritual, tradition (old or new) and the words to reflect the reason you are celebrating. I also cover the legal bits so that at the end of your ceremony, you are husband & wife. Life events are worth celebrating.
There are lots of occasions that we celebrate on our journey through life. The way we do that varies depending on who we are, what the event is and resources available to us. I am keen to help you find something that will make your celebration one that you will look back on with a sense of pride, and with a smile.
Marriage, Anniversaries, Funerals, Renewal of Vows or other celebrations
Initial meetings are an opportunity to talk through some ideas and perhaps brainstorm some new ones. There is no cost or obligation for this first meeting – it is when you work out if I can be useful to you. Even if there is no resulting booking, my hope is that you go away from that first meeting already a little more equipped to set up your special event.
Hamilton is my base but I am happy to travel within a 60k radius, or further afield if costs are covered. See my website more details on my charges - http://clairejones.co.nz/
I really enjoy meeting folk and hearing your story. I am married with three adult children and a growing number of grand-children. I have had an interesting and varied working life including youth work, accounting, community groups, administration, chaplaincy and of course, celebrancy. Many occasions have been celebrated with friends and family and I have always enjoyed finding words that give meaning to events. My hope is to find some words the help tell something of your story around your special event.
Life events are worth celebrating
