Ethics

 

As a celebrant, I work under unusual circumstances: my clients are almost always under stress, whether the occasion is joyful or grief-stricken.  Timeframes may be short, deadlines tight, and conditions are intimate and emotional.  In addition, there is a deep social, cultural, and moral significance to ceremony.  Ethical practices are an important consideration.

As my Code of Ethics and Practices, I therefore pledge to:

1.  Serve all families with respect, sensitivity, and professionalism.

2.  Appreciate the uniqueness of each family and respect their values, philosophical, and/or spiritual beliefs.

3.  Design services that reflect the family’s wishes and the personality of the participants.

4.  Provide accurate information concerning services offered, the prices of these services, and the functions and responsibilities accepted.

5.  Honor the privacy and confidentiality of the family.

 


HONOR AND CELEBRATE THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
