About Celebrant Services NI

Bespoke Ceremonies
Creating your Unique Ceremony starts here ...

Weddings / civil partnerships, baby naming, renewal of wedding vows and, inevitably for all of us, funerals. It is a time-honoured tradition to celebrate these special events with a ceremony shared by family and friends to mark the occasion.

Whatever the celebration, your Ceremony is the most important part of your Special Day. It should be a treasure trove of smiles and memories. It should be sincere, personal and unique. Celebrant Services NI can promise you that.

Wedding or Civil Partnership Ceremony
  • Choosing a celebrant to conduct your ceremony means you can also choose your own location - at a hotel, in a marquee, on a beach, in your garden, on a boat ... it's up to you (the venue doesn't have to be licensed for marriages). It can be held on any day of the week, at any time - sunrise, sunset, morning, noon or night - the choice is yours.
  • Your ceremony can include music, readings and poems which all add to the atmosphere and make the event personal to you. They can be favourites of your own or I can help you to choose.
  • There are also some lovely extra elements that you may choose to include and some of these are listed below.
  • You can write your own wedding vows to one another or I can suggest vows suitable to you as a couple.
  • Involving children in the proceedings can add an extra special dimension to the day and together we can design something specifically for them.
  • Your ceremony can be as brief or as long as you like but around 45 minutes is about the right length to include all the necessary elements: The welcome, the readings, the vows, the exchange of rings and the signing of the certificate.
  • We will have a rehearsal so that everyone involved knows what to expect of the ceremony and feels comfortable on the day. I can give a little coaching and 'insider tips' to ease any nerves.
  • You will be surprised at how reasonable the costs are. A specially-written, unique wedding ceremony often works out at a lower cost than a church wedding or having a registrar conduct the whole service.

Naming Ceremonies
A Naming Ceremony is a non-religious ceremony, a very special way to celebrate bringing a new child into the family and the wider community. As the child or children can be any age, a Naming Ceremony is also ideally suited to welcome and celebrate an adoptive child into the family or to embrace stepchildren into a new family: the perfect way to bond a family unit.

Your ceremony can be held wherever you choose – at home in your garden, in a hotel, a village hall – even on a boat on the open seas if you wish! A Naming Ceremony usually lasts for about 20 minutes and is very much child-centred. It is a time for parents to state their love and commitment to the child and declare hopes for their future. Parents may choose to nominate "guideparents" for the child, who may be friends or family, and they will make a commitment to be there to provide support for the child as he or she grows up and throughout their lifetime.

I will create your ceremony to be enjoyed and remembered by the whole family and you can choose to involve other children, family members and friends if you wish. You can include favourite poems or readings and music. There are many lovely ‘special elements’ that you might wish to consider too – Unity Sand, Hand Fasting, Pebble Jar, Balloon Release, Tree Planting – all of which add colour and excitement to the day.

Renewal Of Vows
I will create for you a personal, meaningful ceremony in which you might reflect on the reasons you fell in love and married in the first place, some memorable moments from the years you have spent together and your hopes for your future.

As the ceremony is not a wedding or civil partnership there are usually no bridesmaids or groomsmen in a Renewal of Vows Ceremony. Instead, you may wish to have attendants such as children, parents or friends that have had a major impact on your lives to stand with them. You might also ask your original wedding attendants to again stand with you.

There are no set rules for a Renewal of Vows Ceremony so together we can create something unique and memorable and entirely personal to you.

When I envisioned my 10 year vow renewal with my husband in Northern Ireland Julie was exactly what I had in mind. She seemed so cheery on her website, so I reached out a week (yes, a week) before we traveled from Washington, DC to NI and she was quick to respond to my inquiry. Turns out we made the best choice! Julie is the sweetest woman, so professional and sincere. You can tell she truly loves her profession.

I can't even imagine a more perfect day without her presence. We were blessed to have her guide us through our renewal and handfasting ceremony. I wish she was my next door neighbor so I could see her everyday!

I am a great believer in certain people coming into our lives for a reason and Julie is one of those people. I have known this lovely lady for just over a year after meeting her by chance at a wedding fair. My partner and I immediately liked her. Bubbly, sincere, joyful and an absolute pleasure to know, she immediately converted us to the benefits of a celebrant service. Little did I know that just over a year later she would conduct the marriage ceremony of my daughter and son-in-law. That day was just last Saturday and it was thee most beautiful, personal and intimate marriage service I have ever been to. Julie is like a light that never switches off. She is full of beans and she instantly makes people feel at ease when talking to her. Her smile is warm and completely genuine and I feel like I have made a friend in her.
Julie stayed for the reception at our request as we wanted our friends and family to have a chance to spend some time with her. I watched her laugh and enjoy the company she was in which give me, as mother of the Bride, great pleasure.
She is truly a very special lady who provides a wonderful experience, no matter what the occasion is.
Thank you julie from the bottom of my heart for making our family wedding a very special day.
I hope our paths cross again in the near future.
Much love
Patricia

Just wanted to drop you a wee email from myself and Martin to say thank you so much for helping us celebrate on Friday. Martin in particular wants to thank you for keeping him calm/sane before the service.

We both loved what you did for us, and so many friends and family commented on how beautiful, unique and personal the service was.
