Independent celebrant services by Rachel Cheer at Hope Ceremonies in Perthshire, Scotland.

Weddings, handfastings, funerals, memorials, scattering of ashes, naming ceremonies, vow renewals, coming of age ceremonies, menarche, blessingway, wise crone, parting of the ways ceremonies, pet funerals and memorials, house or business warming and more. All rites of passage beautifully, naturally, loving created just for you. 

Welcome to my site. I hope I can help you. I believe in creating ceremonies that are authentic, unique and memorable. I want you to be a part of your ceremony, not just a witness to it. This is achieved through the use of activities or rituals. These might be ancient customs such as exchanging rings or lighting a candle. They might be something bespoke, designed to be sincere, heartfelt and truthful to your story. 

As I am independent, I can incorporate any beliefs or ideas you have into your special event. I work with lots of energy, creativity and a serious commitment to get every detail perfect. 

I believe that we must mark the significant moments in life. From birth to death and everything that comes in between, our time on this planet is short. We must take time out from the daily toils to evaluate what has meaning to us. This gives value, sense and order to our lives and helps us to move forwards with clarity and clear intention. Your ceremony will reflect your ideas and move you forward in your life journey. 

Please also be assured that I practise discrimination free celebrancy. This means I will not discriminate against you on the grounds of religion or other cultural beliefs, disability, mental health, race, culture, gender, gender reassignment, sexuality, age, marital or parental status. I honour the right of each human being to celebrate their life. You have my assurance that I will accord you with the respect you deserve, in all aspects of my work.
