Ruby B Ceremonies - Celebrant

Reviews (32) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

Do you want to make sure your ceremony isn’t boring or bland? Would you like your ceremony to be taken by a professional, qualified Celebrant who will take time to get to know you and what you want? Giving you a professional service with a personal touch? Then you have come to the right place.

Are you:
Getting married? Renewing your vows? Naming your child? Renaming yourself? Or marking some other milestone moment? Let me help you to have the Ceremony of your dreams.

I am based in the East Midlands and have conducted wedding, vow renewal, naming, renaming and funeral ceremonies across the UK. I regularly conduct ceremonies in Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire and Yorkshire as well as Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. I have also conducted wedding ceremonies in Greece and Spain. Every ceremony that I conduct is unique, personal and meaningful, written especially for you.

CEREMONY STYLE

I want to offer the Ceremony that absolutely fits you and what you are looking for. I love to listen to your story and help you to develop the Ceremony which will really be personal to you. Conducting a ceremony in a place that is special to you - whether that is close to nature in woods or fields, in a stately home a village hall, an art gallery or your local pub can make it even more personal. I have conducted ceremonies in all of these places and what I loved was that they were special to or specially chosen by the couple or individual concerned.
I am happy to conduct non-religious, humanist, faith based or multi-faith ceremonies. It's all about you, your values and beliefs. I am committed to equality, and enjoy conducting equal marriage and other inclusive ceremonies.
I love to include special elements, particularly in wedding, vow renewal and naming ceremonies. These include Handfasting, Unity Candle, Unity Sand, Ring warming or blessing and Tie that binds ribbons.
I enjoy including some gentle humour in a ceremony and the inclusion of specially chosen readings and music adds to the personal atmosphere. I encourage friends and family to play a part. Many of my testimonials speak of how unique, personal and meaningful their ceremony was and how I gave them confidence that everything was under control, allowing them to relax and enjoy their day.

Professional, smooth, perfect

Ralph and Alice

Exam Hall Derbyshire | May 2019

Due to personal circumstances we had to move away from traditional wedding with a Registrar and were forced to use a Celebrant. Between all the choices we found online, we decided to go with Ruby, and - trust me - it was the best choice we could've ever made. Ruby has been very welcoming, calm, understanding of our needs and extremely professional throughout the process. Keeping us in the loop with all the steps we had to make during the wedding. She's given us plenty of options with regards to vows, readings and options regarding how we wanted our day to go, and to be honest, we would have never had the same experience if we had gone with a Registrar. Ruby was able to customize our day to our precise requirements, and she delivered a ceremony that was smooth, entertaining, touching and professional. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Ruby. You've been amazing. Mr & Mrs Salvini :)

Thank you. It really was a fabulous day. It was a joy to work with you both. Ruby B x

Most Special Ceremony

Claire and Joe Hardy

Foxton Village Hall | June 2019

Ruby was our celebrant for our big day on Saturday and she had been an absolute pleasure to work with. Ruby really took the time to get to know us as individuals to make the ceremony so unique and personal to us.

Throughout the planning process Ruby was so responsive to any questions we had and had so much advice to make the ceremony our own. We loved working with Ruby and she gave us the most special ceremony to treasure forever which we can’t thank her for enough.


What Ruby says...

Thank you Claire and Joe. Your vintage village hall wedding was a real joy.

We all felt you got the tone just right, were a calm, guiding presence for us and that, thanks to your advice, we were able to put together a funeral that was just right for Dad.
I think that all three of us now feel in a much better place and that much of that was down to your work, both in advance and on the day.
With my best wishes,

A beautiful ceremony

We asked Ruby to be the celebrant at our Golden Wedding vow renewal ceremony. We wanted our ceremony to contain pagan elements such as a handfasting.

Thank you Ruby, your input gave us a beautiful day which won't be forgotten. Annie and Dave.

Then the big day came, the ceremony had just the right balance of love story, humour and emotion....all the guests loved it!
We finished the ceremony with a hand fasting which was a perfect way to wrap things up (pardon the pun). Magical from start to finish.

Highly recommended!!

So personal, perfect.

Tom & Kristy Morley

Messingham, Lincolnshire | August 2018

From the first meeting with Ruby we knew we wanted her to be our celebrant! She has a wonderful way with words and most importantly, it feels personal!

From the outset she explained everything to us and gave us all our options for the service, as well as bits of advice during the planning process. She prioritised getting to know us through chats over Skype - which bridged the gap in time between booking and the big day. With Ruby finding out so much about us, the words she spoke at our ceremony meant so much more, they weren't coming from a stranger or someone who assumed what we were like as people, she knew who we were as individuals but also as a couple.

The majority of our guests had never been to a "non church wedding" before and they all loved Ruby and the ceremony we'd put together with her (we had a few readings, a hand fasting and a tree planting). So many people commented on how wonderful she was. Our wedding went perfectly and Ruby was the first part of it all so got us off to a great start!

If we ever renew our vows, she'll be the first person we call!

*5 STARS*


What Ruby says...

Thank you both. It was a real joy to work with you and be part of your day.

Beautiful naming ceremony

Shaun and Lee Bratchley-Clark

Nottingham | June 2018

Thank you so much for delivering such a beautiful naming ceremony for the boys! It really did exceed our expectations! I don’t think that anybody there had been to a naming ceremony before but they all commented on how much they enjoyed it! My dad (who is quite traditional) said it was much better than a church christening! Another couple (who have recently had their son christened) said when they have another baby then they’d be having a naming ceremony (I’ll pass your details on!)

So thank you again, not only from us, but from everybody who attended the day! It’s just a shame that we can’t do it all over again! 

Shaun & Lee

Thanks Shaun & Lee - I loved being part of the speacial day welcoming the boys into your family.

Jake and Ryan Bromley-Fowles

Wellow, Nottinghamshire | June 2018

Ruby has been absolutely FANTASTIC in helping make our wedding such a wonderful and special day to both of us and to all our guests.
We had several meeting over the course of the year, all very informal yet concise. We both were a little ‘clueless’ in how things should be done and Ruby very professionally helped us find what worked for us.
The ceremony was better than either of us could have imagined and Ruby brought it all together so well, really making it our story.
Our day in simple terms was just perfect.

Thank you
Mr & Mr Bromley-Fowles

Ruby had exactly the warmth, clarity and friendliness that we wanted for our ceremony. She was always interested, bright and chatty, open to our ideas to make the ceremony personal to us while at the same time providing suggestions to help us through the daunting process of choosing vows. In short she played a huge part in making our wedding day fun and memorable. We would 100% recommend Ruby to others looking to have an unpressured and personal wedding.

When we first spoke to Ruby about our celebration of our wedding vows and Ruby Anniversary we immediately felt at ease and she kept in touch with us with advice and suggestions for the day. The ceremony was absolutely brilliant with Ruby making everyone feel at ease and had everything we had hoped for. The sand ceremony and hand tying that Ruby suggested were absolutely brilliant and involved the whole family as we wanted. So many of our quests commented on what a brilliant ceremony it was and not what was expected at all. We would definitely recommend Ruby as a celebrant and call her again if we wanted to do the same all over again.

Sheralee and Jonathan

Oaklands Hall Hotel, Laceby, Grimsby | August 2016

Ruby spent time getting to know us over several Skype sessions. This was important as we live in Australia so was unable to meet in person prior to the day. She asked many questions about how we met and the important people in our lives and created a beautiful love story for our ceremony which worked really well because for the 7 years we had been a couple, we have not lived in the UK around our family and friends so it was important for them to know about our lives and our story. She described to our guests how we met, how my husband (still feels strange calling him that haha) proposed, why we had decided to get married in the UK etc. Many of the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, not religious, not a plain registrar, but nothing too long, just right. It was the only part of our special day that I didn’t have to worry about as it ran so smoothly and was everything I expected. Thank you so much Ruby you made our ceremony just perfect!!

From our first conversation, we knew that Ruby would be the right person to conduct our wedding ceremony. Ruby went to enormous trouble to make sure the vows and the order of service fitted us perfectly and her friendly and easy manner made planning the ceremony an absolute pleasure. Ruby’s professionalism and attention to detail took all the pressure off us and provided us with the reassurance we needed. We honestly didn’t have any worries about the ceremony and on the day Ruby guided us through it effortlessly. The guests thought the whole thing was amazing and we simply couldn’t have asked for more from a wedding celebrant. We have no hesitation in recommending Ruby as the person to conduct your ceremony!

A really personalised approach

Holly and Jake

Norwood Park | July 2017

We initially looked in to celebrant services when we weren't able to get a registrar for our preferred date and time - whilst this was disheartening at first, we are so glad that things worked out this way now! Prior to our wedding, Ruby spent time getting to know us and learning about our relationship. However, at no time did we feel her approach was in any way intrusive. On the day itself, armed with what Ruby had learnt about us, she was able to weave little anecdotes and fun facts in to the service via our 'love story'. This made the service so memorable and personal to us and it was so lovely to re-live our story in this way, with all of our friends and family present. A great approach and not one we have had the privilege of seeing before. At all times working with Ruby, she was friendly and enthusiastic whilst maintaining professionalism. We would recommend her services for couples who are seeking a personalised approach - be ready with the tissues though for those happy tears!


What Ruby says...

Thank you. I loved your Unity Candle ceremony involving your parents and your mystery readings. Not to mention your string quartet. It was fabulous. Thank you for letting me be part of your day.

Foxton Village Hall, Leicestershire | May 2017

“She made it” “That was the best service I have been to” “It was so personal” It’s fair to say our guests loved Ruby…and so did we! Absolutely amazing….she made our day. When planning our wedding, the ceremony wasn’t at the forefront of our mind being a non-religious wedding. Thanks to Ruby it turned out to be the most memorable part of our day…and that’s not just because it was the only time I was sober! Ruby made everything so personal and listened to everything we said to make it to exactly what we wanted. I can’t tell you how many people commented on how good Ruby was and how unique the ceremony was. She is also just such a nice smiley person….I am not sure how you could get any better! Thanks so much Ruby!


What Ruby says...

Thank you so much. It was a joy to be part of your fabulous day.
