The road towards a significant and memorable alternative ceremony be it a baby naming, wedding or funeral begins with a meeting with ordained Interfaith Ministers, Peter and Leah Findlay over a cup of tea (or coffee if you prefer) by the open fire at their home in Yorkshire.
Having trained with the Interfaith Seminary in London, Leah and Peter now invite busy young families into their home to plan how best to introduce a new-born child to friends and family; couples planning a wedding or hand-fasting ceremony or, in the case of a funeral, they will be available to visit you in and around the Yorkshire area to create a service of farewell that is meaningful and personal to both the deceased and those left behind.
The sign-posts on this journey are personal readings and memories, hopes and aspirations, live music, sacred song, blessings and prayers from all the world's wisdom traditions that lead us towards a unique and personal Yorkshire wedding, funeral or baby naming ceremony that can be both alternative and traditional; universal and personal, such as a woodland wedding with a musical procession through ancient woodland or a intimate fusion of Hindu beliefs and atheist ideals in the couples own living-room in Oxenholme. As both tour-guides and fellow travellers on the way towards your special event, Leah and Peter will help you to celebrate your ceremony in Yorkshire in a personal and sensitive way, creating a map of your heart and a memory to cherish.
Leah and Peter Findlay are Interfaith ministers who work in the Yorkshire area. Specialising in alternative ceremonies, Leah and Peter will celebrate weddings, perform funerals and carry out baby naming ceremonies (the alternative version of Christenings) anywhere in the Yorkshire area. They are experienced Interfaith ministers who, like all ministers, have both been fully trained at the Interfaith Seminary in London. Leah and Peter are independent Interfaith ministers who seek to help you celebrate your ceremony in a personal and sensitive way, making it both significant and memorable.
Independent Interfaith ministers and celebrants like Peter and Leah often work within a given geographical area, like Yorkshire, but are able to travel throughout it as ceremonies are usually held at the venue of your choice (as long as this is not a religious building). So if you are looking for an alternative ceremony which will be celebrated to your wishes and in a way which suits both you as participants and your guests too, Interfaith ministry is the perfect choice.
