Heart-led Ceremonies

Reviews (30) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

Veronika Robinson has officiated all manner of ceremonies internationally for 22 years, and is also the founder and course leader of Heart-led Ceremonies Celebrant Training in Cumbria.

"For as long as I can remember, I have loved words, and anything that carries a sense of the sacred. As a celebrant, I combine two of my great loves to bring you a ceremony to cherish. I have a deep understanding of the power of words as medicine, and the importance of symbols as a way of understanding and expressing human archetypes and myths.

I will write, create and deliver a ceremony unique to you and your celebration. I have a background in journalism and public speaking, and am skilled at listening to people’s stories and writing them clearly.

I trained as a celebrant at Unity Church, Auckland, New Zealand in the early 1990s.

The ceremonies I write are based on what is important to you, so they can include religious, spiritual or secular elements."

Veronika is also the founder and facilitator of Penrith's first death café A Meaningful Farewell. She is also delighted to be a celebrant for the charity Gift of a Wedding. She officiates weddings, namings, funerals, vow renewals, divorce healing, menarche, wise crone, new business, house blessings, and other rites of passage.

CEREMONY STYLE

My ceremonies are heart led, and I officiate to my client's beliefs. I absolutely LOVE outdoor ceremonies, and am available to officiate outdoors year round. There are no restrictions on my availability, so if you want to marry at sunrise in Summer or midnight on New Year's Eve, then that's absolutely fine by me.

I'm a specialist in handfastings.

As an advocate of family-led funerals, I am more than happy to work directly with the chief mourner to create a meaningful farewell with or without a funeral director.

Beautiful and Meaningful

Mrs Kramer

Yorkshire | June 2013

When my daughter was about 2 years old, Veronika planned and officiated her naming ceremony, using our family input to personalise it. I found her understanding and delivery of ritual to be intuitive, meaningful and beautiful. The meaning of our daughter’s name, our wishes for her life, and the good wishes of the community were all woven into the ceremony, making it a moving and memorable ritual to ground her in our family and on the earth. Veronika facilitates the wishes of the families she officiates for with sensitivity and imbues her rituals with sincerity and meaning. Family and relationship are central to her life, and this really comes across in her celebrant work. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Mr Parker

Dear Veronika

You orchestrated the most wonderful memorial service for dear Pam today. It could not have been more special.

You clearly put enormous thought into every single aspect of what was an extremely moving and loving account – and also an honest reflection of Pam’s life. Just perfect.

Thank you so very much for that. It was hugely appreciated by all who were there – and both Emma and I were extremely touched to be able to witness it.

She was a dear friend. She will be much missed by so many but not forgotten.

Thank you for all your hard work. The flowers, the candles, the beautiful display. All so perfect. Everyone said so, and said how well you handled everything. You can feel proud.

I would just like to say how lovely the service was today for Pam. I did not know her well, but as Avril’s close friend I had met her and knew of her through our friendship.

Knowing her as you did, as a friend, I thought you were exceptional in how you dealt with a very emotional farewell for the family and friends in a very caring and professional manner whilst obviously having your own thoughts and memories.

Thank you for creating such a wonderful space, where people could feel and share their love for her. There was such a beautiful spirit in the hall, so many heartfelt expressions of appreciation of Pam’s life and the ways she had touched so many people. As someone who had only met Pam a few times, the service brought her alive to me as a real person, and I felt sad and uplifted and strangely humbled by the whole experience. Thank you again for making the marking of her death so incredibly special.

My husband's funeral

Sylvia France

Morecambe Crematorium | September 2015

Dear Veronika, how do I begin? How can I put into words the feelings inside my heart as I write my THANK YOU to you? Here goes!

I have known you some thirteen years, We are so well blessed that our paths have crossed, and we have felt enlightened by your presence.

Always a listener, never judgmental, the calmness of your voice filled with such love and compassion upon taking the stand and leading us into the ceremony. The comforting way you delivered the eulogy — it touched so many people who joined with us to celebrate my dear Colin’s life. So many friends have telephoned to ask who you were, and how we found you, as they expressed how meaningfully you spoke to them, and how much it meant to them in their loss of a special friend.

It was a day to remember, by us all, of a man who lived honestly with such love for his wife, family and friends. You, in your unique style, paid homage to this with such emotion and truth, and I will treasure your tenderness for the rest of my life. I do hope you will be around when it’s my time to pass.

The Farewell, My Friends poem was a bonus of a find. As soon as I heard those words, when you first sent us a draft of your service, I knew it was Colin’s poem, epitomising his life so perfectly.

Thank you again, Veronika. Like I said words fail me!

Sylvia France, Bolton on Sands

Wedding, naming and funeral

Andri Thwaites

Cumbria | September 2015

Veronika Robinson has been a celebrant at three very important junctions in our lives. Our children’s naming back in 2002, our wedding in 2003, and my father’s funeral in 2015.

We have so much trust in her genuine desire to honour our feelings and ideas around each ceremony, and her professionalism and gentleness in carrying it out. She has a deep heartfelt respect of our own personal vision of how the day will unfold, and carries it out with a constant grace.

In Veronika we have total trust that everything will go to plan through her honesty, attention to detail, and incredible organisation.

Each ceremony has been grounded by her energy, yet lifted by her innate spiritual light that is channelled to each of us throughout the events of the day. Veronika’s heart emits such love for humanity.

We feel so lucky to have found a celebrant who genuinely gifts her families with an understanding, warmth and the security of knowing all will be well. All our needs have been met with care, compassion and always an angelic smile.

Wedding in our Home

Wendy and Ken

Windermere | May 2017

Veronika, thank you.

We have so much to thank you for. I don’t know where to begin. Perhaps at the beginning, which was you following up my hesitant and dithery message saying we didn’t know what we were looking for, and we had no money!! So thank you for not erasing the message!

It has been a wild ride! It took us a long time to get going though, due to our lack of imagination. Then, when we began to see the possibilities, life gave us other problems and pressures! Life kept interrupting the process of us shifting through many possible paths and directions for our ceremony. When we felt a little overwhelmed with choice, you patiently brought us back on task, reflecting to us what we had selected, even when our ideas were vague… or when we were only able to tell you what we didn’t want.

Thank you so much. Your support and guidance has done so many things. Some we wanted and asked you for, some we couldn’t have imagined. All we love! So thank you.

You had wise words for us which have helped both ground us and give us flight! Both of us had different ideas, and having someone to hear us and guide us towards our combined ceremony was essential. I’m glad we chose you, Veronika. Although we didn’t really get the benefit of getting to know you, because your role was to channel ‘us’, we got a sense of you though. Thank you again!

You were right about so many things, especially about allowing our guests to love us. To our great delight, everyone mingled and made connections! They really took the business of being a good wedding guest very seriously.

Ken has recovered from his state of delirious happiness, and we have settled into a giddy state of euphoria! Seriously! We are both still talking constantly about the wedding, our guests, and our beautiful ceremony.

I loved absolutely everything about it. It was truly heart-led. Mrs Laura Harrison-Swainston

You could say the stars were in alignment!! We were first drawn to Veronika by her own story, her life experiences, and beliefs. After speaking to Veronika on Skype we knew it was only going to be her!

Veronika made planning our wedding from overseas a breeze! She was flexible and very patient, and helped create a personal wedding that was unique to us. It was a beautiful ceremony that exceeded our expectations. She spoke about our own journey and our love. It was genuine and full of humour, and so many people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

Veronika is one of the most sincere and inspiring people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She exudes happiness, and it’s so obvious that she is passionate about bringing people together. Her love of what she does is clear for all to see. Veronika is a true storyteller.
