The course of life
I received my certification to celebrate from Celebrant Foundation and Institute (NJ) in 2012 but since I’m a kid, I’ve always been attracted by symbolism, sacred and rituals. My previous jobs brought me slowly to what I do today more like a hobby or a passion: I co-create ceremonies for the milestones of your lives.
I listen to your stories, beliefs and values. I reveal symbolic threads from your life. Together, we select the most relevant materials for your celebration. I weave these all into a ceremony that feels refreshingly rare and entirely yours. I am an attuned ceremony specialist, offering clear dialogue and guidance. As a result, you will feel calm confidence from reading the first ceremony draft through tending to details before the event. During your ceremony, I strive for you to experience a delicious sense of ease and peace.
It’s your story, your voice, your ceremony
Till now, I celebrated most weddings in nature, on the beach, in private gardens or castels. The themes depends on your choice and story we can weave together : on my website gallery, you can see : a celtic union, two on riviera beach, some in French castels or others in public parks or private gardens. Always with the same kindness and patience.

4 reviews on “Solange STROUGMAYER – CelebrerLaVie”
What a wonderful ceremony we had thanks to Solange. She made our dreams come true. We feel so grateful to have met her and prepared our wedding with her. She totally understood who we are and what we want, and led the ceremony with magnificence and emotions. Thank you so much Solange!Cons
No cons, Solange is wonderful and we strongly recommend her.
In English as well: Solange crafted for us a beautiful, personal ceremony, tailored specifically to our tastes. She did a wonderful job with the presentation and coordination during the ceremony itself. All of this is particularly remarkable because of the short turnaround time we asked her to work with. Thanks again for everything!
Solange nous a fait une cérémonie belle, personnelle et tout à fait à notre goût. Elle a également fait un excellent travail de présentation et de coordination de notre cérémonie. Tout cela est plus remarquable par raison de l'avoir fait en très peu de temps. Merci encore pour tout!
David & John•Pros
We married in June 2019 with the wonderful Solange as our celebrant. During our first Skype call her warmth, charm and professionalism shone through and we knew immediately that she would be the perfect match for our wedding celebration. In the run up to our big day Solange was always available to guide us through the process, agreeing to meet us when we visited the venue and doing a rehearsal with us the day before. The wedding itself was deeply moving, Solange facilitated us without imposing herself, a warm trusting presence that gave us and our guests a special day to remember. Many of our guests said it was the most moving wedding they had ever attended, complimenting Solange, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place after our first kiss. Solange, Bernard, thank you for helping us achieve our dream of a unique, intimate and wonderful day. David & John
