This week, I got some delightful news – another couple decided to put their faith in me and asked me to deliver their wedding ceremony. It’s in just six months’ time, and I already know I’m going to be busy on the May bank holiday weekend. I’ll be strapping up my glamorous wedding celebrant boots as I prepare of this wedding ceremony. It’s happening in beautiful Bellinter House in Meath, an exclusive wedding venue in a Georgian manor.
Wedding Celebrant Inspiration
My creative juices are already flowing. The couple have two small boys, so I’m picturing a day filled with colour and laughter, and rituals that the whole family can be part of. I’ll write a love story for the couple too, but to hold the attention of the little ones, I’ll keep it all short and simple.
Here’s a flavour of the types of ceremony I can work my wedding celebrant magic on for the couple.
The couple love the seaside and have beaches in their lives that are very special to them. I can just imagine them mingling the sands from those beaches in a special sand ceremony. And the boys can join in too! They’ll each have individual pots of sand, which they’ll pour into a big decorative pot, to show that even though they’re individuals, their love is now intertwined.
Find out about sand ceremonies and other special rituals on my Wedding Ceremonies page.
For the couple themselves, I’ll perform a handfasting ritual. This hugely popular Celtic wedding ritual celebrates the freedom that love brings. I will tie the couple’s hands with cords of their choosing, to show that the couple have chosen to come together freely in marriage, and to celebrate the bonds they have made with each other.
Telling A Love Story
The love story is the independent wedding celebrant’s calling card. It’s what makes the ceremonies we deliver unique. I craft love stories tailored to every couple I work with – no story is the same. My background in creative writing helps me create quirky love stories, full of passion and humour. I’m guessing this love story will celebrate the everyday wonders of this couple’s family life, but watch this space – all will be revealed.
