Merging Families Ceremony | When Two Families Become One

We are based in Cheshire East, but can travel anywhere you might need us to deliver your unique and bespoke family unification ceremony

Why would you conduct a Merging Families ceremony? There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ family. As couples come together, they may bring with them a family of their own. Children may now have multiples mothers and/or fathers, and all parents want only the very best for them. New siblings, new parents, new homes are a usual transition in what makes a contemporary family.

 

A family unification ceremony such as this will enable the merging families to publicly and openly unite to becoming one family in a magical declaration of commitment. This can be done as an extension to a wedding ceremony or commitment ceremony (at a discount), but it is a precious and special ceremony to be done on its own too.

 

The two halves of the new family each make special pledges to the other family, and demonstrate honour and acceptance of their new family members. This can be truly wonderful and beautiful to so openly show. Often, such occasions can include symbolic rituals to help strengthen the unity of the new family.

 

  • You can hold your Merging Families ceremony wherever you like
  • Each Merging Families ceremony is entirely unique and tailor-made for you personally

 

The ceremony celebrates the community spirit of family and seals the relationship between the new siblings and parents.

By creating a unique Merging Families ceremony incorporating elements that are special to you all, For Life’s Journey and Tuirenn Hurstfield will help ensure your family unification ceremony is a beautifully personalised occasion. From the very first meeting, this ceremony will be focused, designed and constructed with only your new family in mind.

 

As this ceremony is purely symbolic there are no legalities or paperwork involved: you can hold it wherever you like and include whatever readings, poems, hymns, music or rituals that you find meaningful.

How Do We Book You?

First you need to check the details of the Merging Families Ceremony to see if you’d like to book us for before you get in touch. There are more details on these opposite.

 

What Happens Next?

When you first meet Tuirenn, you’ll just spend some time getting to know each other so he can find out more about you, your family, and your wishes for your ceremony. You may already have lots of ideas, and that’s totally fine – we can work together to make sure it feels just right.

 

Once you’ve confirmed the booking, Tuirenn will get started on writing your ceremony straight away. With his experience he can make suggestions, and together you’ll create something that feels right for you. This will possibly include discussing reading options with family and friends you have chosen to take part.

 

Preparing the Ceremony

As soon as possible before your date we’ll send you a script for the ceremony. You will have lots of input and your feedback is welcome.

 

On the day Tuirenn will conduct your ceremony as planned, delivering a personal and beautiful service for you and any family or friends you have involved. Afterwards you’ll get a beautifully bound copy of the ceremony script to reflect on in future years, together with a keepsake certificate.

* Please note: certain symbolic elements may incur additional costs of up to £75 if you wish to use props you would like to keep, we will discuss at the point of your decision.
