River absolutely made our wedding. We knew we didn't want anything religious, rigid or dull! The wedding was outdoors, chilled, fun and all about us. River was amazing. Our ceremony was fabulous. We had met River and chatted before the big day, so felt totally at ease. The ceremony was funny, personal, tender, tearful, happy and beautiful. Everyone at our day was so moved by the ceremony. I can not recommend River highly enough. Her skill to bring everything together, make everyone feel included and make the day shine is rare. Thank you, River for being such a star on our special day.

River crafted a wonderful Mother Blessing ceremony for me and a few friends in the comfort of my home, as part of my preparation for becoming a mother prior to the birth of my first child. Although I was a little nervous about being the centre of attention during an emotional spot in late pregnancy, River’s holding of the space gave me such rest from having to ‘entertain’ guests, and it was so easy and light, whilst I was also left feeling profoundly loved and cherished. The excitement and tenderness we all felt about this child coming was palpable, and one friend said when she got home she still felt like she was in a ceremonial realm, in a very special headspace, and didn’t quite know how to do ‘normal life’ again that evening! I really appreciated that River and I shared values on issues of cultural appropriation, and that it was important to us to come up with our own ritual objects, materials and practices to weave into the ceremony. Thank you dear River.

River is an amazing celebrant. She transformed the day into a really special, fun and moving time. She had such great ideas to include and interest our daughter. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone for any ceremony.

Since being asked to do my first handfasting 20 years ago, I’ve delivered hundreds of ceremonies to very happy clients (please don’t take it from me; have a look at the testimonials on my website, facebook page and instagram pages.). It’s a special privilege to be trusted with the most important moments in people’s lives - I never lose sight of this, and I will do all I can to make your ceremony the best it can be.
