Create Your Own Ceremony

Everyone has the right to ritual and Create Your Own Ceremony gives you the power and the right to decide what you want to celebrate. When you marry or have a baby, those are massive milestones, but there are so many other moments in life worth celebrating.

With Create Your Own Ceremony, I will design an original and creative ceremony that helps you celebrate your life choices. It’s a chance for you to have your moment in the sun, surrounded by your family and friends.

Here are some Create Your Own Ceremony inspirations for you.

Celebrate You

If you’ve landed your dream job, moved into your forever home or beaten a serious illness, it’s time to celebrate. You pick the occasion, and I’ll create a ceremony I’ll create a ceremony that helps you mark your milestone moment. Your ceremony will be original and true to you.

We’ll tell the story of your success through words, pictures, music and fun rituals that your friends and family can take part in.

The wording I choose will give shape to your experience and help you celebrate how far you’ve come.

Friendship Ceremony

For many of us, our friends are our family. Do you have the sort of friends you can ring up at 3am? The sort of friends who’ll stand behind you at a graveside, or stand behind you on your wedding day?

Those are friendships to treasure.

I’ll create a Friendship Ceremony that will give you the space to come together and celebrate the bonds you’ve created. There’ll be stories, music, rituals to help you deepen your bonds – and lots and lots of laughter.

Commitment Ceremonies

For some people, commitment goes beyond marriage. They don’t feel they need a piece of paper to prove that they’re together for life. If that’s you, why not commit to a commitment ceremony. It will give you the opportunity to celebrate your relationship and the deep love you share, as a couple and as a family.

We will carry out rituals and say words that will help you strengthen your commitment to each other. You will come together in freedom to declare that you will love each other always, and that you will always be there for each other.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.”
