Just wanted to write to give you our sincere thanks for the role you played in making our wedding day absolutely perfect. We feel very privileged to have had you as our celebrant, and can’t thank you enough for your help and guidance at every step. Our guests were all singing your praises, and for many of them it was a wonderful introduction to Humanism. Stephen & I couldn’t have been happier with the day, and the words you spoke will stay with us for the many years to come.

It was an absolute pleasure, and we all hope that our paths will cross with yours again soon.

Thank you again. Xx
— Rose & Stephen
We have had many compliments from our guests on how lovely the ceremony was, with several people saying it was refreshing to see such a modern non-religious event that was still more personal than a civil registration. Many comments as well on what a good job you did personally, and even a few questions about humanism!

Our very best wishes
— Grace and Jody
Thanks so much for a beautiful ceremony. Everyone was very complimentary of your calmness before the ceremony and then with how you delivered and directed the ceremony. We are delighted at how it all unfolded. It was even better then how we imagined it would be. From the first email exchange to the ninth draft, from our first meeting to the ceremony, you have given us great advice and guidance and that is why everything went so brilliantly.

Thank you so much again. We will certainly recommend a humanist ceremony to any couples we meet who are unsure of how they would like to get married.
— David & Stephanie
Aaron and I just wanted to extend our thanks to you for the ceremony. It was honestly more beautiful than we could ever have expected! Thank you for making the process so easy and for your natural, friendly and beautiful delivery on the day. Many people commented on how well you officiated the ceremony and on your professionalism. You are a fantastic advocate for the Humanist Association of Ireland.
— Lynda & Aaron
Thank you for marrying us in Ballymagarvey Village. You delivered the Humanist Ceremony with such charisma and heartfelt words.  Everyone was very impressed, especially Richard and myself.
— Kind Regards, Ursula and Richard


About Me

My approach

Certainly with a wedding or baby naming, there’s no reason why creating a ceremony cannot be fun along the way. I know that you want your own unique ceremony and helping you achieve this is something I love doing.

I am happy to explore new ideas and am equally as comfortable with traditional styles. I understand the importance of listening to your needs and wishes.
