Ursula Holden Gill | Celebrant

Ursula Holden Gill


I am a qualified and experienced Family Celebrant able to conduct funeral, memorial, wedding, renewal of vows, handfasting, baby naming and civil partnership ceremonies. I am also a long-standing member of The OBOD and a graduate of the Druid Grade.

My professional background is in theatre, television and radio, creative writing and teaching. However, in 2010 my lifelong love of ecology and wildlife, coupled with my own personal spiritual development, prompted me to start sharing my skills in tailoring bespoke, inclusive, ‘down to earth’ ceremonies for groups, couples and individuals alike; people of all walks of life, budgets and belief systems who are similarly inspired by the natural world.

I am currently based between West Yorkshire and the West Midlands but am perfectly happy to travel further afield.

A good listener, I relish collaboration and work very closely with my clients to ensure that all their needs are met and that they feel wholly supported throughout the entire process. When invited, I also offer guidance on how to shape a ceremony effectively, in such a way that befits the occasion, along with a wealth of spiritual and literary resources for my clients to draw from.

I thrive on shaping stories, reflecting what adventures people have been on, their authenticity and (when appropriate) what dreams they might hold for the future – all the necessary qualities for facilitating the perfect ceremony, as my testimonials show.
