Ceremonies and Celebrations gives details of how to organise a celebration or ceremony, with example ceremonies, a wealth of suggested readings and music, together with checklists and advice on how to write and structure your own ceremonies.

Ceremonies include: weddings (formal and informal), commitment to partnerships, renewal of vows, name giving/naming, graduation, coming of age and other birthdays, divorce, stepfamily acceptance, house dedication, ‘sorry’ ceremony, funerals and memories, and how to prepare a eulogy.

All of us have the right to choose and organise our own ceremonies according to our beliefs – and this book tells us what we have to do, and when.
