Who am I ?
Florence, certified Life-Cycle Celebrant by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute.
I’m native and I live in Paris Area.
My hobbies : Travelling, Having a walk in the countryside, discovering cities and their hidden secrets, their sacred and mysterious sides. Curious about everything, I like very much learning from people.
To perform ceremonies is a way to share my knowledge, to help you to have the perfect ceremony, but also to learn from you.
Life-Cycle Célébrant® are ceremony specialists who have a solid background in history of rituals, ceremonies and the traditions of many cultures, beliefs and religions. They are experts at managing rehearsals and performing weddings. They are experienced in the art of ceremonial public speaking.
Life-Cycle Celebrant® are trained and accredited by « Celebrant Foundation & Institute » - www.celebrantinstitute.org - to design, write and perform ceremonies which helps people, couples and families to mark the moment and important milestones of their personal or professional life.
Personalized ceremonies are the speciality of Celebrants. Each ceremony is designed to reflect who the honorees are either as individuals or as a couple or as a family. A Celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute will take the time to listen and to understand the honorees’ beliefs and values and what makes their ceremony unique.
In a Celebrant ceremony, the honorees are empowered. Nothing is imposed on them. Instead, in a collaborative process, the Celebrant will guide them in choosing rituals, readings, symbols and musics to fulfill their ideals and vision for their Ceremony. No two Celebrant ceremonies are the same.
Celebrant services for their honoree client(s) include:
- Meeting at a no-obligation interview to discuss the honoree client’s vision of the ceremony
- Listening and taking notes as they learn the client’s personal story
- Consulting with the honoree client until the ceremony is just right
- Providing a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony
A ceremony, Why ?
Most people have always liked using rituals to give sense to the important moments in their life.
In the past, we immortalized the faiths of our ancestors. Today, with the Internet, we all easily reach various cultures, various traditions, various religions. We can choose to have our own convictions and to follow our own way of life.
Keeping that in mind, it remains important to mark each milestones of people life by ceremonies which allow us to express our own values involving us in our life.
Choosing to commit each other, together, means that we have no other choice but to proceed to a civil union. However what about the spirituality, the symbolism, the sacred ? What remains in the memories from a civil union, if it is not the legal obligation of the spouses between them.
Each of us, whatever our origin, our social status, our religion can hope to live a ceremony which looks like us without being in the obligation to stay in the typical family faiths or cultural background. Each of us feels in itself a spiritual side which he lives in his own way. It is this spiritual side that I wish to help you to express by accompanying you in the creation of your own ceremony.
You’ve made the choice not to have a religious ceremony or you’ve made the choice to renew your vows in France.
You wish to have a wedding ceremony with sense, spirituality, and truth.

And your wedding ceremony should be a true reflection of your special love and bond.
