It's been an inspiring and rewarding journey working side by side with many couples and families creating personal, unique and heartwarming ceremonies that have touched not only the couple but everyone present. 
Whether your celebration is a wedding ceremony, name giving ceremony, funeral, birthday celebration, or any other of life's 'touchpoints', I can help you to make it unforgettable, exciting, relaxed and friendly and, most of all, fun and inspiring."Wendy Haynes Signature

A quote by the Dalai Lama - for a naming ceremony

This is a beautiful quote from the Dalai Lama that I selected for a naming ceremony when the parents wanted to acknowledge that they gave their child the freedom to choose their own religion.

This quote from the Dalai Lama was in response to the question, What is the best religion?, posed by the Brazilian theologist, Leonardo Boff.

“The best religion is the one that gets you closest to God. It is the one that makes you a better person. Whatever makes you
                         more Compassionate,
                         more Sensible,
                         more Detached,
                         more Loving,
                         more Humanitarian,
                         more Responsible,
                         more Ethical.


The religion that will do that for you is the best religion. I am not interested, my friend, about your religion or if you are religious or not.

What really is important to me is your behaviour in front of your peers, family, work, community and in front of the world. Remember, the universe is the echo of our actions and our  thoughts.

The law of action and reaction is not exclusively for physics.  It is also of human relations. If I act with goodness, I will receive goodness. If I act with eviI, I will get evil.

What our grandparents told us is the pure truth. You will always have what you desire for others. Being happy is not a matter of destiny. It is a matter of options.”

Finally he said:
   “Take care of your Thoughts because they become Words.
     Take care of your Words because they will become Actions.
     Take care of your Actions because they will become Habits.
     Take care of your Habits because they will form your Character.
     Take care of your Character because it will form your Destiny,
     and your Destiny will be your Life.

There is no religion higher than the Truth.”
