About me

Weddings - Vow Renewals – Funerals - Naming ceremonies.

Ireland is changing and I believe that people are looking for less tradition and religion.  People want something different.

If you want a wedding ceremony that is unique; a ceremony that is individual; a ceremony that has your values, sense of style, and to be shared with your families and friends, then we can work together to ensure it becomes a memorable reality.

Your wedding ceremony can now be conducted in venues that have a special meaning to a couple - hotels, beaches, woods, meadows. The only limiting factor is your imagination. Following on from the Marriage Equality Act of 2015 Ireland has shown that it is ready to embrace something different and I look forward to making my own contribution by creating a special and meaningful ceremony that provides a lifetime of memories for all those that attend.

For funerals, I can now create a ceremony for the whole family with a celebration of their loved one’s life, memories, stories, poems, readings and music that have meaning to you, with family and friends fully involved in the ceremony where possible. A funeral that can be conducted locally at the Funeral Home with the Committal taking place at the Crematorium, the Graveside or at the Funeral Home.  The family decide what works best for them.

As the Celebrant I am there to help guide and create a meaningful, personal ceremony that is tailored exactly to you.  No more ceremonies where “insert name here” are used. I will actively work together with you, supplying ideas and options for your ceremony to ensure it's all about you and/or your loved one.

A calming guiding hand. Your Ceremony, Your way.

My role is to listen to what you would like and to deliver that on the day. Wedding, funeral, naming ceremony.  You, the client are the focus of my business.

A diverse past allows me to draw on experience that can bring a practical, can do approach to my work with you.  My Diploma in Family Celebrancy, qualifies me to work with you to provide that memorable ceremony.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of the above as I am happy to help if I possibly can. And a big thank you to all the people I have been proud to have worked with in the past, their guests, or even those I am creating ceremonies for at the moment, you are the ones that allow me the great honour of making your ceremony so special.

Why consider me?

As a fully trained and qualified Civil Celebrant and a registered Member of the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants (UKSoC).  I will work tirelessly to ensure your celebration exceeds every expectation that you have and that it becomes a unique memory for you and everyone involved.
When I launched my business my friends said, "You're really suited to that role" and I asked them why and they said "You like helping people and when added to your business experience, this makes you an effective, professional and caring celebrant.”
My personal motto for life is “To make a difference - in the best possible way.”   Let me make a difference to your special day.
