I have been recently interviewed for an online directory and wedding 'all questions answered' resource. We talked about this work, ceremonies, and what I love about celebrancy. Hope you enjoy it!
"As well as being an amazing wedding celebrant Aleksandra is a systemic practitioner who works with people to resolve their life situations with the help of a therapeutic framework called ‘systemic family constellations’ and systemic ritual.

It has a number of principles observed which can be used to strengthen any family system, anywhere in the world, and she uses those principles to design wedding ceremonies as well. Fascinating, or what?
What has been the highlight of your wedding career so far?

I love what I do and I love talking about it. In systemic work words are very important, they are healing and supportive.

Here I share my thoughts, inspirations, knowledge and words on ceremony, ritual and celebrancy.
