At Time4... we recognise that there are occasions in life that need to be honoured, celebrated or simply acknowledged. We are committed to standing with our community during these times and creating the most appropriate ceremony for each individual, couple or family.


We provide a certified life-stage celebrant to plan and conduct a personalised ceremony.

From the traditional to civil to the religious or spiritual; small and intimate to the pomp and splendor of a grand ceremony - whatever your vision, culture, or background, Time4... will honor your most personal wishes to create something unique to the occasion.


We create the space for you to plan the event and we will create the moment to truly cherish the moment.

  • The ceremony will be all about YOU!

  • You'll laugh, you'll smile, and maybe you will even shed a few happy tears!

  • Your family and friends will be talking about the ceremony long after it's over because it reflects the occasion and people being celebrated!

Steve Shaw - celebrant

As a certified celebrant Celebrant, Steve brings a wealth of experience, humor, literary skill, life experience and empathy to his work.  

Ceremonies are traditionally held at times of birth, marriage and death but we appreciate that there are often other occasions that could, or perhaps should, be marked in some way. We are happy to work with you in planning the event or celebration you would like to hold, whether it’s one of those traditional ceremonies, an anniversary, a renewal of vows, an act of remembrance or an occasion unique to you.


I really love…

…to create bespoke ceremonies that are informal, relaxed, tailored to your specific needs, heart felt and a true reflection of your deepest self and your wishes – I am focused on honouring the moment and the person.

Newborn Baby

Naming Ceremony

Children are the most precious gift that you will ever receive and so we offer to create a special ceremony to acknowledge that gift. Time4... wants to help create an opportunity to say thank you, to name the child, to be grateful or simply say  “welcome”.

Marriage, Vow Renewal, Reaffirmation

Marriage is special, the unique celebration of your love for each other and your commitment to sharing life together. It’s a day you’ve dreamt about, a day you’ve designed in your mind and a day Time4... can help you create the ceremony you will remember forever.

Just like your wedding day, vow renewals or reaffirmations should bring back the magic from your special day and revive the commitments you have made to each other.

Funeral & Memorials

Time4... recognise that the circumstances surrounding a funeral will be different for everyone and that the needs of each individual and family are unique. Death can be a time of deep sadness and sorrow, with feelings of devastation, confusion and loss yet there is often the desire to celebrate a life well lived. We value the importance of acknowledging all the feelings that death arouses and we are committed to journeying with you through this time.


Unique Ceremonies

Time4... believes that celebration and gratitude should be at the heart of community so we offer to create and officiate a unique ceremony for any occasion you wish to celebrate.

Those occasions could include milestone birthdays, retirement events, wedding anniversaries.....
