I’m Caitlyn Gilfoil, a Certified Life Cycle Celebrant and Ordained Non-Denominational and Interfaith Minister serving Central Florida, and I want to tell your life’s story. It’s all too easy to get swept up in the craziness of everyday life, making it all the more important to take a step back and acknowledge all of the triumphs and challenges along the way. Ceremony allows us to ease our way through life’s transitions whether you are welcoming a new life into your family, celebrating a major birthday or simply starting a new chapter in your life. As a Celebrant, I work hand in hand with my clients in order to dig deep and discover what is truly important. I then spend countless hours combining their words with poetry, music, readings, and rituals in order to create a ceremony that is completely authentic to their journey. So, if you are looking for someone who respect your unique beliefs, values and cultural background, while creating you a truly one-of-a-kind ceremony, I’m your girl.
I start every consultation off with a no-obligation phone call in order to tell you a little more about myself and what I have to offer. We will also discuss the hopes and desires you have for your ceremony, and if I seem like a good fit, schedule a face to face meeting. This is our time to really get to know each other and draw out the stories and emotions that will help me get a feel for you as well as brainstorm about some of the details and elements you would like to include in your ceremony.
From there, if you decide to book me, I will give you some “homework,” a detailed questionnaire, that will allow me to really become your voice and bring to life your vision for your ceremony. After hours spent researching and writing your ceremony, I will send it out to you for any rewrites and final approval. You are given complete control over your ceremony script from beginning to end to make sure that we get it right. On the big day, I will arrive early in order to make sure all of the ritual props are in place and gather everyone together before officiating your ceremony. As your celebrant, I promise to work hand in hand with you in order to create a celebration that feels unequivocally yours.
