Creating Ceremonies for the Seasons of Your Life

    Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.
    ~ Yoko Ono


Selina Ashurst

My name is Selina Hatt and I am the founder of Tree of Life Celebrant Ceremonies, based in St. Andrews, New Brunswick and providing ceremonies for the residents of N.B.  As a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®, I have been trained by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute in the art of creating personalized ceremonies. It is important to me that the seasons of your life are celebrated in a way that is personal and meaningful to you and your loved ones.

I am committed to working with my client’s to ensure that you get the exact ceremony that you want…personal, engaging, and memorable.  Although I perform an array of personalized ceremonies which include weddings, funerals, memorials and family ceremonies, my specialty is Weddings and other Ceremonies for Couples.

Please note that due to limitations in the Marriage Act in the province of New Brunswick, your wedding would need to be a two stage process, like those in Europe, where a Deputy Clerk or a Civil Officiant would perform the legal ceremony and I would perform the customized personal ceremony.  Should the Civil Officiant be able to come to the venue of your choice, I am very willing to work with the Civil Officant to ensure that the process is streamlined and easy for you to combine the two ceremonies.

My ceremonies are inclusive of gender, race, and background. For those who do not require the legal formalities for their special union, I also create and perform handfasting ceremonies, commitment ceremonies, and renewal of vows.
