Hi, I'm Ruth

I am a Midlands based celebrant and I hand make and conduct personalised ceremonies for people looking for something special and personal that reflects them and the life moment they wish to create and remember always. We are all different and the way we love and feel is unique is to us. Working with an independent celebrant to craft your ceremony will give you the opportunity to create a ceremony that reflects that uniqueness and create a memory that will last forever.

What's my ceremony style?

Bored of hearing the same words and phrases at every wedding, funeral and christening? Do you want a ceremony created and delivered that reflects you and your loved ones? As your celebrant I will get to know you and find out what is important to you and create a truly unforgettable moment for you and everyone who shares that moment. My celebrant lead ceremony will not only give you the right words at the right time but give you the confidence and reassurance that the moment will be well planned, confidently held, calmly executed and delivered with warmth and joy.

Naming Ceremonies

Family and Friends are very important to me and I love making those special moments in their lives with gifts, words, events that make them feel special and appreciated. If I could throw a party for each and everyone of them I would, but sometimes a simple message in a card is all they need. I will take time to get to know you and the person or persons you are celebrating and create a ceremony for you that offers the love, warmth and care that I would for anyone I love and care for.

When you book with me you get a handmade bespoke ceremony written from the heart, reflecting your thoughts and feelings. I will meet with you and get to know you and the circumstances that have lead you to want to celebrate this moment in your life. I will lead you and your loved ones through the ceremony with my handmade script, incorporating any special ceremonies or people that you want.

Why choose Ruth for your renewal of vows?

Being in love with one person and sharing your life with them for as long as you have is something worth celebrating. In 2014 I had the honour of organising a special event to celebrate the 50th Wedding Anniversary of my parents. We came together on that day to celebrate them as a couple and honour the years of togetherness that had played such an important part in shaping the lives of those of us that have shared that life with them. A Vow Renewal is your chance to celebrate your love and life together but it is also your moment to say to each other the things that we sometimes forget to say on a daily basis and remember why you fell in love with each other all those years ago.

Funerals

In 2017 I said goodbye to the man I had loved for my whole life. I never thought I would ever have the courage or the right words to do his life, his love for me and my love for him justice, but somehow I managed it. And it was an independent funeral celebrant that helped me to do it. At a time when my family were feeling sad and exhausted our funeral celebrant walked into my kitchen, took quiet control of the situation and helped us create a ceremony and write eulogies that did justice to my Dad. Nothing was too silly or to serious, it was just us honouring him and our memory of him. That’s why I chose to become a funeral celebrant and that’s why I know being chosen by you to do this for you is an honour.

When you choose me to create the ceremony for your loved one I will meet with you and your family members to listen to your stories and help to shape the ceremony you want, reflecting the person you have lost and your love for them. Everyone is unique, our memories of people we love are unique to us. My ceremony will reflect that individual and how they and you wish to be remembered. I will guide you through what to say, when to say it and shape all the special unique elements you wish to include that reflect your loved one and the way you wish to honour and remember them.
