My name’s Ruth Graham, and I’m an independent civil celebrant covering the West Midlands, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and surrounding areas.
An independent celebrant is free to conduct all kinds of services. From humanist (no religion whatsoever), through to a service with maybe a prayer or a hymn (or several), through to more spiritually-orientated content.
Whether you’re looking for a funeral celebrant, or somebody to conduct a marriage, baby naming or vow renewal, I approach it from the angle that it’s not about me. It’s about your wishes and views… I then facilitate these completely, helping and guiding where necessary. And with regard to content – it’s all possible - from poetry to music, to special readings and recollections, so don’t be afraid to ask!
I consider this work a huge privilege. Whether you need a Midlands wedding celebrant; a celebrant in Birmingham for a naming ceremony, or someone to provide a fitting funeral for a loved one - I am happy to make myself available to you.
An eclectic background in music, theatre, writing and counselling has given me a broad spectrum on life, and an appreciation of all that goes hand-in-hand with that great roller-coaster known as being human!
I very much look forward to hearing your story, and helping you to tell it in the most appropriate and satisfying way possible.
Thank you, Ruth.
