A beautiful ceremony at Ballymagarvey Village with Danielle & Derek.


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

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
Our wedding ceremony was simply beautiful, thank you. Every word was meaningful and perfectly delivered by you. The atmosphere in the room and the love we felt from each other and everyone around us not only followed through to create a wonderful wedding day but it will stay in our hearts forever as a cornerstone of our marriage. We really appreciate your personal investment and time in our ceremony.
— Mairead, Stephen & daughter Alana
Your advice over the 10 months was so important to both of us, where we were doing something we had never done before! You went over and above what we expected. For this and for your delivery on the day, we will be forever thankful to you.
— Clare & Paul
Jimmy and I would like to say a massive thank you for the most beautiful ceremony. It was exactly what we had hoped for. It felt so personal and relaxed, full of warmth and even humour!! All the guests commented on how beautiful it was. Thank you once again! We are thrilled we found you!

We just want to say a HUGE thank you for all your help in organising and executing our ceremony. Your delivery was absolutely perfect in setting the tone and mood of the day. Everyone commented on how romantic the ceremony was, and how relaxed and natural you made it all feel. We cannot thank you enough for helping us make our day everything we’d hoped for. One lovely piece of feedback we’ve received so far was “the atmosphere was so relaxed and all the guests were just having random chats to strangers” so that is exactly what we had wished for! We will remember the day for the rest of our lives so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us such a special memory.

The Steps


The Steps


The First Step

The first step will be to send me an email or fill out the form on the contact page. Either is fine. Please let me know the venue and date if possible.

 

The Second Step

Once I've confirmed my availability, we can arrange a meeting. At the meeting I will explain everything in great detail, including all the processes involved, and we will get to know each other. The meeting is very thorough and I need to meet you both.

 

The Third Step

Following a successful meeting, which usually takes about an hour, I will then progress you to a full booking. After that I will guide you and assist you in the building of your unique script.

About


About


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.

The “Accredited Celebrant” symbol shows that I am a registered solemniser, therefore your marriage will be legally binding.

Every single comment we received about the ceremony was unambiguously positive and virtually all of them were effusive. You were singled out for comment repeatedly as warm, polished, imaginative; rightly so.
— Robin & Sinead

Certainly with a wedding or baby naming, there’s no reason why creating a ceremony cannot be fun along the way.

I run my own graphic design business; write poetry and prose; and I am a stage actor. I have significant experience performing for large and small audiences. I am based in South Wicklow, but I am willing to travel further, should the need arise.


We had not given much thought to the ceremony content before we got in touch with you, but through your guidance, suggestions, help and encouragement it became a beautiful process. We thoroughly enjoyed shaping the ceremony and making it personal to us and our relationship.

Your presence and calming influence on the day was wonderful. You settled our nerve and kept things relaxed and joyous. Just as they should be. We also can’t thank you enough for your interaction with the kids and going off script when little Norah decided she wanted to be heard too.
— Aileen & Krigh
