Ceremonies and the Coronavirus

The escalation of the Coronavirus outbreak and the measures being taken to curb it have blown away my plans for this week’s blog post. I want to say instead that my heart goes out to all those affected by the Coronavirus outbreak and their families. And my heart goes out to all the people who have had to cancel baby naming, wedding and vow renewal ceremonies.

But this too shall pass, and when it does, celebrants like me can help you plan your rescheduled ceremonies. In the meantime, I want to say that I’m here to help couples who planned a wedding ceremony abroad and have now been grounded. I can put together a ceremony for you at very short notice and deliver it to you in any venue in South-East Ireland. Once your gathering is small, I’ll be only too delighted to help you make your dreams come true.

And to my fellow celebrants, let’s sit tight and help our clients and each other in any way we can. If you find you can’t deliver a ceremony because you have an underlying condition and don’t want to be exposed, I can step in for you. Or if you want advice on how to write a ceremony at short notice, I’ll be happy to draw on my writing background to give you tips.

In the meantime, I’m coming up with creative ways to spread the word about my celebrancy online. Who knows – they may lead to a big boom in virtual ceremonies!

Vow Renewals

Vow renewal ceremonies aren’t just for celebrities. In a vow renewal ceremony, you’re renewing your commitment to each other and celebrating how far you’ve come. A vow renewal gives you a chance to have the wedding you always wanted, second time round. I can help you organise a creative vow renewal ceremony that celebrates who you are now, as a couple and as a family.

Here’s a happy couple I did a vow renewal/family ceremony for. The man and woman are standing close together, with tall trees behind them. Photo courtesy of the couple.

Do you have Irish roots? Why not renew your vows in Ireland? I’ve got loads of ideas for a vow renewal ceremony that will help you connect with your Irish ancestry. You can have a Celtic vow renewal filled with ancient rituals like handfasting ceremonies, the tying of hands with ribbons.

Have a look at this video, which will show you what a vow renewal ceremony looks like.

I will help you plan your vow renewal ceremony with the same care as if it was your wedding. You have found each other again and your love is stronger than ever. That kind of commitment deserves to be celebrated.  If you like the sound of that, give me a call on 0876959799 or email info@celebrantderv.ie.
