FAQs

Why choose a Wedding Celebrant?
I am a fully trained and accredited wedding celebrant and I will create and deliver, in close consultation with you, a unique and personal ceremony.
Many couples are looking for a ceremony that reflects their own individuality – a ceremony that tells the story of who they are as a couple, one that is warm, personal and meaningful. A ceremony that will combine their beliefs and traditions. If this sounds like what you’re looking for, get in touch … !

How is a Wedding Celebrant different from a Humanist?
Humanists do not believe in any god or in the supernatural. A humanist ceremony is designed for those who share the same philosophical belief system as humanists. A wedding celebrant will offer the couple the choice to include spiritual or religious readings, poetry and/or music if desired.

Are you a legal wedding solemniser?
At present, as the law stands I can only perform non-legal wedding ceremonies. The legal signing of your marriage documents is done by the HSE either before or after your wedding ceremony. The good news is that there are no restrictions on time and place when planning your wedding – you have the freedom to choose; a beach at sunrise, a romantic hotel at midday, a city street at midnight …

What is the cost?
My fee is €450 – with no unpleasant surprises! This includes travel, consultations, preparation and writing of the ceremony, delivering the ceremony on your wedding day, all expenses and sundries such as candles etc.

I would love to hear your story, your ideas, hopes and plans for your wedding ceremony. This is the starting point in creating the first draft of your wedding ceremony, followed up by close consultation with you. Some couples prefer to take a step back, and if that is your choice, I can supply sample readings, vows etc. Either way, but most importantly, it’s your day and I’m here to help make it yours
