Hi, I'm Donna Marie

Hey there! I am Donna, of DMG Ceremonies.

I am a professionally qualified independent modern Celebrant, specialising in designing personalised ceremonies that are heartfelt leaving lasting memories for years to come.

Each clients’ ceremony starts with a ‘blank canvas’ so each script is unique and handcrafted to reflect your own words, values, customs and style.

You should take comfort that I am a member of the professional body of the ‘Association Of Independent Celebrants’, so fully insured too.

Donna is person-centred, empathetic and always focuses upon the wishes of the clients. She has over 20 years teaching experience with skills in public speaking and creative writing.

She offers traditional, Humanist, civil, religious and spiritual ceremonies, embracing themes and a variety of outdoors and indoors venues.

I have the motto: “Your Day, Your Ceremony, Your Way!” and this underpins all of my ceremonies. I am so excited to be able to offer the choices available to clients.

What's my ceremony style?

Modern, client focused, empathetic, reassuring and 100% flexible to your ideas.

Whether you are looking for a formal traditional type of ceremony or laid back or somewhere in between! Whatever is preferred.

The range of ceremonies offered include: wedding ceremonies, destination weddings, elopement celebrations, civil partnerships, blessings, vow renewals and civil ceremonies.

I am also at ‘home’ in a variety of venue settings, both indoors and outside, including beaches, barns, gardens, castles, bell tents, hotels, chateaus, golf courses, woodlands, stadiums or festivals.

My specialities include offering unity elements to your ceremonies including handfastings, sand ceremonies. unity candles, jumping the broom, crownings, wine sharing, cocktail making, tree planting and more.

If you have a fur baby, that is an important member of your family, I would love to include them too!

Weddings

A fun, caring, contemporary and inclusive Celebrant, designing ‘one-off’ couple ceremonies and providing clients with heartfelt lasting memories.

Each clients’ ceremony starts with a ‘blank canvas’ with so many options, including venue, timing, music, staging, readings, vows, themes, rituals and symbols.

I am a professionally qualified Celebrant, Level 3 Diploma with NOCN and also a member of the ‘A.O.I.C.’, so fully insured too.

I have teaching experience too with skills in public speaking and creative writing.

I entwine rituals and symbols from traditional and modern cultures.

I embrace themes: alternative, ‘boho’, whimsical, ‘eco’, enchanted forest, vintage, ‘garden party’, celestial, Disney, ‘luxe’, beach or festival and officiate outdoors/indoors, micro/macro ceremonies, in this country or abroad.

“Your Day, Your Ceremony, Your Way!”

Designing and officiating couple ceremonies: weddings, civil partnerships, elopements, destination weddings and blessings.

With 100% energy, creativity and professionalism, ensuring your ceremony is one to look forward to with excitement, rather than the ‘thing to do before the party starts’.

Your dreams and hopes will shine in both script and delivery. Transforming your ideas, working collaboratively with the comfort in knowing the ‘familiar face’ standing before you, reducing anxieties to relax into the joy and humour.

All themes are embraced, sadly not ‘Arsenal football’, as an avid ‘Spurs’ supporter!

Flexibility, with the current situation, with plans ‘A’, ‘B’, and even ‘C’ accommodated, to officiate outdoor/indoor, micro/macro weddings in both this country or abroad.

Beautifully personal

Wedding | 09/11/2022 | Coed

Donna was our celebrant for our wedding, after already having had our legal ceremony beforehand as a result of covid postponing our original date.
It’s not something we had considered before but are so glad we did this.

Donna did a great job at making the ceremony really personal to us and our story and everyone commented on what a beautiful, personal ceremony it was!

We are really happy that Donna was able to play such a pivotal part in our big day and was supportive throughout the whole process.
