Tailoring your ceremony as you dream it!
After all it is your special day! And we will work hand in hand with you so that the celebration matches your expectationsand hopes. A ceremony to reflect and honor your spiritual path or tradition.
Ness's experience as a Priestess for more than a Decade, and on the Shamanic Path for almost 20 years, is invaluable when creating an absolutely Magical Ritual to meet your expectations and dreams.
Ness, as holder of a wide ancestry, has been approached as a Priestess by very different Deities.
She works closely with Deities and Spirits from the Celtic, Druidic, Norse Traditions and of course also Iberian. From the Greek and Egyptian pantheon too.
As a Shamaness, Ness is also very close to the Spirits of Nature, Elements and Ancestors. Being able to craft any sort of ceremony, either including Deities or not.
Ness can Officiate your Ceremonies completely in English, Spanish and partly in French and Italian by request.
Celebrating Love: Legal Weddings, Handfastings and Renewal of Vows.

Do you wish to arrange a Free Consultation/ Meeting via Zoom or Video?
Get in Touch. It's important to get a feeling of your Celebrant before you commit to use their services.
With the departure of a loved one we find ourselves in a vulnerable and complicated moment for many reasons.
For years celebrating rites around life and death in the Shamanic Path, Ness has accumulated experience to be able to provide ceremonies created to celebrate the life of the person and honor their path.
In communication with the family, she can help creating a unique ceremony, following the wishes and listening to everything you wish to express. Ness will do her best to create a ceremony for everyone to remember.
Ash Scattering Ceremony
Independent of the funeral, we also offer solo Ash Scattering Ceremonies.
An ashes scattering ceremony is the act of releasing the ashes of a loved one. Scattering the remains of a loved one is an important time and part of dealing with grief and we want to help you make this day a special memory. We also provide guidance during this difficult time.
This day is for you and your loved ones, it is a unique and special day to say goodbye to the loved one.
For people who come from other countries, we can perform an ashes scattering ceremony in Scotland at:
- The sea, river or loch
- A beach
- National Park
- A private plot
Requesting Permissions might apply.
Separation and Soul Unbinding Rites
Sometimes things have to die dies to open the door to change, change comes because your soul needs it and you have to say goodbye when there cannot be tomorrow.
Many people forget that a Breakup is a very important part of relationships when it comes to working them with awareness, once we finish our grief phase.
The moment in which a relationship ends is very important, that is why a Rite to consciously close our union with another person at soul levels. You cannot imagine the amount of people who still drag ties and patterns of previous relationships because they weren't closed in a sacred way.
It seems that many people concentrate on celebrating the sacredness of the union but forget that a goodbye also has to be Sacred, that it has to be a Healing and that above all it has to liberate us. This is why I Share this Rites!
Note: We dont need both integrants of the Couple to do the Rite, just consent, even at a soul level.
Baby Blessing - Naming
This ceremony comes to be what in other traditions is known as Baptism, but with elements more of the Spirituality of the Earth and Nature. In addition, this ceremony goes beyond giving a baby a name and being recognized as a member of a clan, we know that it is a blessing that will accompany him/her in his/her first years of life, like an invisible seal, a protection.
There are traditions that gave the little boy or girl even a magical or sacred secret name, which only the parents or godparents would know. In other traditions, the totem animal of the baby was sought, which in some way also became her guardian and gave her gifts.
Others directly entrusted the newborn to the Gods, the Elements and the Universe. There are many ancient traditions to look for inspiration for the Baby Naming ceremony.
This ceremony can be performed both individually and, for example, together with a wedding. Ness can use the Weddingd theme or make a ceremony more connected to the elements and traditions of the land.
Whatever it takes, to be sure to create a very special ceremony for your son or daughter.

- Custom ritual for your ceremony (We will provide you with copies).
- Advice if you have to speak to a local authority to obtain permits and reserve the place if necessary. (no offset).

Rites for Women
Menarche Rites for Young Girls
Our blood sings... Sing the song of our ancestors, their stories, their life, sing our femininity. The blood comes singing the song of the sacred woman when we stop being girls, it sings a song of a Creatrix Goddess, it sings us females, it sings us mature, it sings us sexual. The song of blood is very old, as old as humanity. Enter the Circle of womanhood!
The rites are celebrated over a weekend or separated meetings, where the young woman is instilled with her sacred character, her creative connection with Mother Earth, we talk about beauty, about care, what it means to be a woman in a broad sense, other women in her family are welcome to be part of this moment of celebration apart from the mother, so that they can also share their experience as women for the young woman to begin her new life adventure bathed in blessings. To end the rites, a Sacred Name will be given to her for her new stage, a name to recognize the Young Woman, leaving the girl behind.
This rites can be celebrated right before the First Moon or once the young woman has started bleeding.
This rites can also be performed for adult women who have not had a healthy relationship with their Moon and wish to clear and heal their connection with their feminine side while they are bleeding women.
The rites can be requested privately by a family or they can be celebrated in common with other mothers and daughters who wish to share the experience.
Coming into Motherhood Rites
(For pregnant women)
When our belly is full with life, when our love materializes within us, we hum, we become queen bees and as such, Goddesses. We buzz when we are in our Creatrix Goddess phase, because we connect to Mother Earth as Life Givers and we beat our baby's heart with ours.
It is a time of Recognition and Blessings but it is also a time to Heal and to Empower ourselves. Women, we are going to gather, we are going to sing to the Belly with Love, with Pride! We are going to celebrate the Creatrix, the Mother Goddess, we are going to honour and love our Cosmic Uterus, where life explodes taking human form.
This Rites can be Celebrated over a weekend or in several meetings, where the expecting woman goes through different portals. A gist of Blessings and Magic celebrating ourselves as mothers and also growing, preparing for the moment of birth, clearing the path of possible fears or blockages as well.
We can also hold this Celebrations in a group with other moms who wish to go through this preparatory threshold towards motherhood.
Women buzz. When we women are full of love We buzz like bees at an energetic level, we shine like the morning sun, we are flowers full of nectar. A woman full of love is a force of nature, connected with the creative force of Mother Earth and connecting with our inner Goddess.
Rites for the Women that Stops Bleeding (Menopause).
A 45- and 50-year-old woman today is more than ever in the prime of her life! She has lived, she has an experience that has enriched her on many levels, she will have had children or not, but she is before one of the most important doors of her existence. Her body changes and prepares to say goodbye to her moon, to stop bleeding.
We may still have a while to get to that moment, in any case we are all going to get there. Maybe in a natural way, maybe because for some reason our body took us to that moment ahead of time, or for a medical cause, no matter how we got there, the important thing is to know that we have to honor that sacred moment, that we have to embrace it. with love and respect because these women are one of the most important doors that will open for us!
This is the front door of our empowerment neither more nor less!
For women who wish to go through this preparatory threshold towards Menopause.
