Another Wonderful Wedding Celebrant Gig

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.

Sand Ceremony

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.

Handfasting Ritual

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.

In this picture, you'll see me in my pink celebrant suit, holding up some decorative cords. I'm about to use them to tie the hands of the couple you see in front of me.

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.

Weddings

As your wedding celebrant, I will deliver a wedding ceremony that tells the story of your love for each other. Your love story will be at the heart of your ceremony. It’s a little gift we creative celebrants like to give our couples. I can deliver a spiritual wedding ceremony or a more secular one inspired by literature and great art. We will work together to design a wedding ceremony that you, your family and friends will remember long after you’ve said “I do.”

Beautiful Wedding Rituals

There are loads of wonderful wedding rituals that will make your ceremony shine. Here’s a flavour of some of the beautiful rituals I can perform for you

Unity Candle Ceremony: In a unity candle ceremony you light candles with your partner and family to show that two have become one. In this video, you’ll see for yourself how meaningful this ceremony is..

Handfasting Ceremony

A handfasting is a Celtic wedding ritual where a couple’s hands are tied with ribbon or cord. This shows that the couple have freely chosen to come together. If you’re having a destination wedding in Ireland, a handfasting ceremony is a great way to connect with the landscape and celebrate your roots.

Sand Ceremony

In a sand ceremony, different coloured sands are blended together, showing that your lives are now intertwined. You start off with separate grains of sand, as a sign of your individuality. But then the grains of sand come together, showing that you are united. This video will show you what your sand ceremony will look like.
