Would you benefit from getting unbiased feedback or feed-forward on one of your ceremonies? 

The Celebrant School offers a Ceremony Review Service to all celebrants.

Why a Ceremony Review Service?

If you are a past student or graduate, you may remember getting detailed feedback, affirmation and suggestions on your ceremony assignments from our teaching team and your peers in class? It’s one of the things students value about our learning process. We believe this feedback needn’t stop once you graduate – in fact, self-reflection and collaboration with others is a great form of professional development. We therefore make this service available to past students and also those who have not trained with us. Afterall, we all want great ceremonies happening in Aotearoa!

When could I use this service?

You could use this service when you’re writing your ceremony, or after you’ve delivered a ceremony.

  • When you’ve had your head in a ceremony for hours or days at a time, you often need another perspective to get past the humps, or to get fresh ideas. With lots of experience behind them, our team can help with structure and content, and can also point you to new or different resources.
  • When you’ve completed a ceremony, there’s often a sense of relief – and also a post mortem, when you fret about what didn’t go so well. If you would like to talk through one of your ceremonies in detail – to either celebrate when you’ve nailed it (and think about how you might replicate this for next time) or consider what needs polishing, one of our team can be that sounding board.

What can I bring to this Ceremony Review Service?

We will give you guidance about what to prepare for a review. If the ceremony is submitted following the guidelines, then one hour is typically enough. The review may take longer if the ceremony is very long or complex, and we will let you know in advance if more time is needed.
