Celebrate your life choices
Hello there. I’m Celebrant Derv (Derbhile Graham), a straight-talking celebrant living by the sea in Tramore, Co. Waterford, Ireland. My job is simple – I deliver ceremonies.
If there’s a big moment in your life you want marked, I’ll mark it for you. I deliver wedding, funeral and vow renewal ceremonies in Waterford, Tipperary, Kilkenny and Wexford, but I’ll go further afield if you ask me nicely.
I also give you the power to Create Your Own Ceremony. I create ceremonies that are true to you – your beliefs, your values and your style.
I love to chat, so give me a call and we can get the ball rolling to plan a ceremony that’s true to you.

** I am not a legal solemniser, which means I can’t conduct a legally binding wedding ceremony. But organising your legal wedding ceremony is straightforward. I’ve created a blog post that tells you how to organise your legal wedding signing. Have a read of it and follow the advice in it, step by step. You’ll also get more information from the HSE website.**
As a funeral celebrant, I’m here to help you at every stage of the grieving process. On my Funerals page, I offer the different types of funeral and memorial ceremonies to help you celebrate your loved one’s life. You can also find out about how I can help you plan your funeral – it’s not as morbid as it sounds!
Vow renewals aren’t just for celebrities. They are celebrations of real love that has lasted. A vow renewal ceremony gives you the chance to enjoy the wedding you always wanted, second time round. Your ceremony will happen in a place you’ve chosen, with the people you’ve chosen to surround yourself with.
Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming!

“Derv was able to conjure lightness and gravity and a unique ability to elevate the occasion to something truly spiritual.” ~ A Happy Client.
I am really glad that Derbhile was there to be a witness and guide us through the ceremony. She made it all so easy and relaxed, we had a great giggle, which is exactly the way we wanted. And we also got a recording of the ceremony afterwards as Derbhile had recorded it through Zoom.
I would highly recommend Derbhile for any type of ceremony, she is sensitive, eloquent and compassionate. She was prepared, helped me be organised through planning the event beforehand.
Thanks a million Derbhile, you made our day really special.”
Derbhile did an amazing job delivering our wedding ceremony! Everyone was commenting on how personal the ceremony was and how impressed they were with her!
Her voice is so clear and carries so well.
Her communication was always very clear and prompt and she ran everything by us. She made the process so easy.
Thanks so much for making our ceremony so special! Would definitely recommend Derv as an excellent celebrant.
We wanted a ceremony to officially welcome our son into the world. We didn’t know what we wanted except to have our families there to mark the occasion and celebrate with us. Derbhile helped shape a naming ceremony for us by describing different things we could do. The ceremony itself went way beyond our expectations. We were expecting something simple. It was that and much more as Derbhile brought a tone and message that was profound and fitting of the wondrous occasion of inviting a new person into our families. She was able to conjure lightness and gravity and a unique ability to elevate the occasion to something truly spiritual.
I’m only sorry that my own wedding and the births of my children happened before Derbhile became a Life Celebrant, as I would have loved to have her officiate at those milestones in my life. However, I did get the chance to benefit from her skills at my fortieth birthday party. My husband asked her to say a few words at the party. She perfectly tread the balance between making me feel good, entertaining the other guests, and not mortifying me!
To anyone thinking of enlisting Derbhile’s services as a celebrant, I can only urge you to do so. You will be in the best possible hands.
