Wedding Celebrant - A little about me

I'm an experienced, professionally accredited Celebrant, registered with the HSE on their list of Solemnisers in Ireland.

My base is in Cork, but I'm happy to travel to your wedding. Wedding ceremonies are tailored and personalised to suit the couples I work with.

If a couple want a ceremony that contains warmth and humour, then that is what they get.  Your ceremony can be relaxed and laid back or more traditional – the couple decides.

You can take comfort in the fact that I have experience of working with hundreds of couples and I'd love to work with you to make your dream wedding into reality.

Registered Solemniser & Celebrant in Ireland

It's great getting to know couples and working with them to deliver wedding ceremonies in fabulous venues - Country Houses - Castles - Boutique Hotels -Grand Hotels - a Beach - a Mountain - in a Marquee on the lawn - It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of your special day.

Check out my testimonials page to see what past couples have to say about working with me to create their perfect wedding.

The legal stuff

There's a lot to make yourselves aware of with regard to the legal aspect of a marriage ceremony.
As a Registered Solemniser and Celebrant, I'm there to support and guide you through the process of getting married and making it memorable. I can legally marry a couple on the day of their ceremony. This will only be possible though if you have complied with the HSE requirements and have brought along your, "Green Folder" which contains the Marriage Registration Form (MRF).


You will need to organize with the HSE to do the Notification of Intent to Marry (NOIM) meeting.  It will be necessary for the couple to attend in person.  Once the necessary paperwork has been completed, you will then be issued with the Marriage Registration Form (MRF).  This is also known as the Green Folder.  This is the paperwork that your Solemniser will use to marry you on your wedding day.

If you are coming from abroad to marry in Ireland the process is a little different.  See my article for more information Click here


Every ceremony I conduct is inclusive of everyone.  My very first wedding, way back when I started was a same sex wedding and it hadn't occured to me that it was anything other than a beautiful ceremony.

Having conducted hundreds of weddings with a variety of couples, I am happy to work with you to create your dream ceremony.




I get to know a little about you and what type of ceremony you would like and start writing the 1st Draft.

I'm there to support and guide you from start to finish 🙂



We sit down over Zoom and we go through the options for your ceremony. After this, I will send you a Couple's "Checklist", for you to complete.

This information allows me to finish writing your ceremony.



On the day of your wedding, I arrive about 1.5 hours before the couple, to make sure everything is ready for you and your guests.

I liaise with the couple, the venue and other suppliers before I conduct your ceremony.

City Wedding - The Imperial Hotel by Caroline McCarthy Celebrant & Registered Celebrant Ireland - Cork Kerry Tipperary Limerick Kildare and more

The Imperial Hotel, Cork City

A car crash of a wedding !!

"Unfortunately, the AMAZING Caroline was involved in a serious incident when someone drove into her car on her way to our ceremony...Did it faze her?  Not on your life.

Caroline made the build-up, the preparation, the ceremony planning so seamless and easy, we would not have minded that such an accident would result in a last-minute replacement for our ceremony.  But she would not hear of it. THE SHOW MUST GO ON...

Caroline is amazing in every way, look no further for a Celebrant - you have found her.

The standing ovation she received from our guests following her bravery and professionalism on the day was more than earned...

Thank you, Caroline, you made our special day unforgettable."
