Vow Renewals

Vow renewals aren’t just for celebrities. They also aren’t expressions of Hallmark card love. They’re 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. This time, your ceremony will happen in a place you’ve chosen, with the people you’ve chosen to surround yourself with.

You can choose whatever wording you want and whatever music you want. And you will look at your beloved and think, wow, look what we did.

Look how far we have come.

Your vow renewal ceremony is €550, the vow renewal written with love is €550 and the mini vow-renewal is €300.


Want to recommit to each other and deepen your bonds?

Here are the options I offer for vow renewals, from a simple ceremony to an all-out wedding.

Your Vow Renewal Ceremony


Your vow renewal will feel just like a wedding, but this time, you have complete freedom to choose the readings, music and wording you want. Your vow renewal will reflect your tastes, your personality and your beliefs.

I will create a love story for you that celebrates everyday love, those ordinary moments of magic in a marriage. You can recommit to each other again with a handfasting ceremony, where your hands will be tied with ribbon. And then we come to the heart of the ceremony, when you will renew your vows to each other and recommit to each other for life.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Vow Renewals Written With Love


I will write every word of your vow renewal ceremony especially for you. You can guarantee that no-one else will have heard these words before. I’ll create your love story, which will give you the chance to celebrate your love, words and all.

It’ll capture the most special moments in your relationship. I’ll also help you write new vows to say to each other, and I’ll create readings for you too.

From start to finish, every word in the ceremony will be original and true to you.

Mini-Vow Renewal


If you want a vow renewal, but you don’t want a big fuss, you can have a simple ceremony lasting only 10-15 minutes. This ceremony will get to the heart of the matter, and we will put your vows at the centre of the ceremony.

You can add a handfasting, a reading and some music, and that’s it – you will once again be committed to each other for life. Then you can get on celebrating with your family and friends.

    • 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.”
