For Love and Life

Trisha Pringle

About




Welcome to Creating Memories. My name is Trisha Pringle and I am a Professsional Celebrant specialising in creating totally unique and personal ceremonies for you. Ceremonies where you get to decide on the vows you say, rather than the same words that are spoken by every couple.
Perhaps you don't want to be restricted to only approved venues and would like to have your ceremony by a lake, in a field, in your garden or even under the stars. Whether your style is Grand, Intimate, Elegant, Rustic, Boho, Chic - It's your special day so have the ceremony that you want in a way that is meaningful and true to you as a couple. It can be as traditional as you wish or you can be dressed as a Disney character!            
I also conduct ceremonies for 'Renewal of vows, 'Baby Naming' and  'Celebration of Life'.

I am a young, fun and funky Nana to two boisterous but gorgeous grandsons and mum to my beautiful cockapoo babies, Hettie and Lottie. I adore spending time with my boys,  playing games, walking and generally helping them to explore the wonderful world around them.
It was my love of writing and the pleasure that I get from meeting and working with people that inspired me to become an Independent Marriage and Family Celebrant. I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and I am based in Derbyshire on the edge of the glorious Peak District where we have some of the most beautiful locations for you to hold your ceremony.

Need some inspiration? Let's get together and I will create for you your perfect wedding ceremony.


 About About

Wedding Ceremonies



The proposal was made and accepted. Now the fun begins with the planning of your special day. The days, weeks, months leading up to the actual ceremony should be fun! These are the moments that you will look back on, in years to come, and cherish. 

You deserve the best and most wonderful day of your life . A day full of love, laughter and precious memories that you can share with those that mean the most to you. So when planning your day think about what is most important to you both. I'm sure for each couple it means different things. For some it's all about the party, but for others it's about declaring your love for one another and sharing these intimate moments with family and friends. Whatever you want for your wedding day it is all about you and your dreams for your future together.

Remember it's your special day so have the day that you want 

Many couples choose to follow a traditional wedding script but where the vows are more personal to them.

Some couples also include a form of symbolism to add to the celebration of the coming together of two people. This can be a lovely and memorable part of the ceremony and can be performed either as a couple or also involve children, family or friends.  


Here are some popular examples:

     Handfasting Ceremony


This is an old Pagan custom that dates back to the time of the ancient Celts. It symbolises the binding together of two people and the origin of the phrase, 'Tying the knot'


 Rose Ceremony


Roses are a symbol of love

For this reason it is fitting that the first gift a couple should exchange, once married, is a single rose. 


Sand Ceremony

The delightful blending of the 'Sand Ceremony' is popular and contemporary.
The sand is used to symbolise the merging of two lives and, or their combined 'families' with children










Renewal of Vows


 

   Renewal of Vows
We still do - And always will
 
Whether you have been married for 5, 10, 25 or 50 years, this ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate your marriage and to reaffirm your commitment to each other. It can be as special as the first time that you said 'I do' and it's a precious time to be able to share with loved ones old and new. Life is a journey and you may have experienced many things during your marriage that you would like to share or celebrate with family and friends. I have lots of ideas of how you can celebrate together using either classic style vows or by creating new and unique vows that are personal to you both. 

Naming Ceremonies


Naming Ceremony


What is a Naming Ceremony?

It's the celebration of the birth of a child as well as an opportunity to welcome them formally into the family and to also give them their name. 

A Naming Ceremony is an alternative to a traditional christening. Every precious new baby brings their own special joy.  Sometimes, as parents, we wait to see the baby before giving them a name. How often I have heard, 'We think she looks like an Olivia.' We choose their names for a variety of reasons:  family tradition, uniqueness, or just because we like the sound of it.

Whatever your reasons, a naming ceremony is a very special way of celebrating the birth of your baby and it's an opportunity for Parents and Godparents to declare their love and their promise to support and care for the child. 

Naming ceremonies do not have to be solely for babies. Many families wait until they have more than one child and then have a joint ceremony. Sometimes it's an ideal time for older children to be involved with their younger siblings or a way of celebrating the bringing together of two families. And of course, you can make the celebrations unique and personal to the child and you as a family by having the ceremony at any location, whether it's at home, in your back garden or in a field. You can have any readings, poems, songs, music that you want and I can help you to make the day a truly memorable one for you all. 


Celebration of Life



As an Independent Celebrant I offer 'Celebration of Life ceremonies', to take place after the funeral or interment. Although funerals held at a Crematorium or Church do celebrate the life of your loved one, for those who are grieving it can be a very emotionally draining time. Once the service is over you may want to think about where to scatter their ashes or, in fact, decide that having a separate ceremony at a beautiful venue, or outside in a woodland garden would be a fitting tribute to your loved one's life. It can be full of fun and laughter, where family and friends gather to share stories and to raise a glass to honour the life of someone so special. It might have been the wish of the deceased for a party to be thrown to celebrate their life. You will always mourn the loss of your loved one but you will also have such happy memories of the send off you gave them. I have my own personal experience of this. When my parents passed away, five months apart, we had the traditional style crematorium funeral but then the following summer we had a get together at my sister's house in Cornwall, where my parents had lived for the last few years of their lives. We had a celebrant conduct a simple service in the garden, which included a poignant reading and then we placed their ashes, together, into a wishing well planter. We then had a big party and laughed and cried as we shared their life stories. I know that they would have been so pleased with their send off and the memories of that special day I will cherish always.
