Professional Celebrant 

As an independent professional celebrant, I am an alternative option, I don’t get involved in the legal side, that’s where I can guide you to the HSE where you can have all that side looked after and see it like your pre-wedding admin. It can be done quickly and cheaply before or after your ceremony wedding day.

Your ceremony is what can make your day special, the gathering is all about those moments you connect and then exchange your souls, your promises about your love for one another. This can be done through ritual and ceremony.

Tying the bonds of marriage.

The real wedding day, the celebration, the joining of your two souls connected for this life in front of your family members and friends, that’s what I look after, no rules, we can have your ceremony anywhere (health & safety allows!)

What makes me different? I get to know you, I listen to you, I’m authentic, professional, and excited to work with you.

It’s all about fitting in with your needs, connecting to who you are, bringing that into your wedding ceremony through professionalism with a hint of quirkiness.

Your wedding rituals are crafted and created especially for you. Using what you’ve seen in other ceremonies or rituals that you like and altering it for your needs, for your wishes, for your desires, for your special day.

This is your day so let’s make it unique and special for you both.

Some examples of wedding rituals.

Unity Candle

Two candles are lit at the beginning of the ceremony to honour the departed from both sides of the wedding. Then the mothers of the bride and groom are invited up to take the light from those candles to light two more candles. Finally, the couple light one last candle, from the light from the first four candles. At the end you will have five candles lit, representing the family’s generations.

Hand Fasting Ceremony

This involves the couple putting their hands together and pieces of ribbon or cord being tied around their hand, symbolising the bond of love. It's an old pagan ritual and is where the sayings 'tying the knot' and 'hand in marriage' come from. Lorraine says it's a lovely way to include children into the ceremony, whether they are the couple's own children or relatives.

Ancestral tree ceremony, where the soil (if possible) is taken from both family homes and placed into a pot of soil, then the sapling of choice is placed in, bringing together all the ancestors from both sides as you set your roots together in ceremony. Watching this grow and attending it over your years as a married couple.

I am very happy to discuss with you any details that you’ve seen at other weddings and wish to utilise or simply alter to make your own.

The beauty of been a celebrant is I’m not associated with any religion, building or day, so within reason the world is your oyster!

Deciding on a wedding celebrant that suits your needs and personality will make you feel at ease and allow your ceremony to be all about you. To book your Wedding Ceremony date with Amethyst Health please feel free to contact us on 0863845644

As I am a celebrant, not a solemniser, my services are purely ceremonial. To have your wedding legalised you will need to sign your marriage certificate with the HSE. For all the legality’s check out the HSE website:
