CEREMONIES

Is there an important event imminent in your life or the life of a loved one? A birth, a marriage, a birthday, a retirement, an opening ...? Or has something happened that requires a moment of reflection and remembrance? The loss of a dear one, a goodbye?

Do you need a text or song tailored to the occasion? Or do you want to mark this special moment with a ceremony, a ritual moment with family, friends, acquaintances and / or colleagues? Meaningful but also accessible so that everyone feels at ease?

In other words: not just any ceremony, but something unique, something people say about afterwards: "So beautiful, so sincere, so completely you".

Maybe you already have ideas, but are you still looking for someone who turns all puzzle pieces into an inspiring whole and leads the ceremony.

Guiding ceremonies is something I do with all my heart. I see it as moments when we as a community take the time to share something valuable with one another. Something that is not tangible, but that we need so much.

Love. Wisdom. Humour. Spirit.

This will only succeed if the ceremony is completely in line with the unique story of the people concerned. Therefore, every ceremony is by definition different.

We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.

Woh, so beautiful !! I went through the poems just as quickly and I was already moved to tears. We are going to go through this over the weekend of course, but I would like to say a big thank you for putting it all so beautifully down in words. This is really our Amélie.

Véronique
Spring ceremony for her daughter

Thanks to Stien, our wedding day was truly an unforgettable one. The ceremony was really excellent. From our introductory talk to the ceremony itself, you really noticed that she gave herself 100 percent for this event. Everything was always prepared and she often asked for feedback so that everything was exactly as we dreamed it would be. The ceremony was very intimate, Stien had coordinated all the texts nicely with the "speeches" of family and friends, making it one very nice personal experience. A big thank you for this Stien! We really enjoyed your presence and energy!

Wedding Ceremony

Stien's approach is at the same time gentle and concrete, personal and professional. In designing our wedding ritual, she listened openly and empathically to our ideas and desires. Then she translated it into a moving and deeply meaningful ritual. Also on the day of the ritual itself, Stien was fully present and attuned. She guided the ceremony lovingly and subtly led the whole thing in beautiful ways. In this way she created a safe space in which everyone felt welcome and relaxed. The end result felt completely "ours" and became a collective experience to remember.

Gil
Wedding Ceremony

I designed most of the of the ceremony myself, using ingredients from different kinds of ceremonies we liked and felt connected to. During the whole process of designing, Stien and Willem were there to listen to me while my ideas took shape and to ask me the right questions exactly when i needed it.

Approach

A good start

My first concern is you and your request. How do you see this ceremony? How can I contribute? Am I the right person in the right place?

Focus and Presence

I am 100 percent there. With head, heart and hands. Before, during and for follow-up afterwards.

Original

Together

We create the ceremony together. I also like to find ways to involve invitees, during the preparation and during the ceremony itself. The key word is connection.

I love groups

I am at ease with any group, small or large, it doesn't matter.

A meaningful whole

I make sure that all interventions in the ceremony from A to Z fit into a meaningful whole.

The right tone of voice

Some ceremonies call for serenity and modesty, others for fun and delight. I help to set the right tone.

Quadrilingual

I write and speak fluently in Dutch, French and English. I can also easily combine languages. I do not guide ceremonies in German, but I do speak it and I can therefore also involve any German-speaking guests.

Professionalism

For me this means walking the talk, being respectful, direct, effective and transparent, and continuously evolving and learning in my field of expertise.

A large network of professionals

If I need the complementary skills of a colleague, if I don't have the time or if I just think someone else is better suited than me to do the job, I have a wide network of professionals that I can recommend.

Results

I make sure that the result is ultimately what you want. I will provide you with the script in advance so that we can fine-tune it together.

A touch of magic

Not everything can be said in words...
