Each of our celebrations is unique

You wish to celebrate an important life change, you do not want or cannot have a traditional religious ceremony, and you are looking for a celebrant:

- to help you create a ceremony that respects all that is meaningful to you
- to create a memorable and meaningful celebration
- to represent the occasion
- to advise and offer expertise
- to conduct the ceremony
- to monitor the smooth running of the celebration 

Please contact Célébrations & Mémoire for a no-obligation interview to discuss the your vision of the ceremony. 

The initial consultation helps assess your needs and expectations as well as data relevant to your ceremony, including the number of guests, the date and the venue of the event, the complexity of ceremonials and set up coordination, etc. 

In the following days you will receive a draft proposal including a quote. Upon mutual agreement of terms and signature of the contract, the design of your ceremony begins.

In a collaborative process, we guide you in choosing rituals, readings, symbols and music in order to fulfill your ideals and bring your vision to life. Moreover we provide unlimited consultation while creating your ceremony until final approval of the text.

Célébrations & Mémoire conducts a rehearsal where necessary to the ceremony. On the day of your celebration we are present to officiate and, to ensure the smooth running of the celebration, we collaborate with your photographer, your musicians, your wedding planner et the venue’s personal if necessary. 

To conclude, we will provide you with a lovely keepsake copy of the ceremony.
