Professional Trained Wedding Celebrant and Public Speaker based in Kildare, Ireland. I am fully insured and accredited by the Irish Institute of Celebrants to perform bespoke wedding ceremonies. Who you choose to officiate your marriage or vow renewal is just as important as choosing your venue. It is my belief that your wedding celebrant should be in tune with your needs and style. I entered into this industry because I found there was a lack of variety and choices for weddings and events if you didn't want the standard church wedding or share a baptism with six babies at a time. Or with a priest that doesn't know me and has an agenda to preach. My only agenda is freedom of choice, Freedom to choose where you want to marry the person that you love, at a time of your choosing. A celebrant should facilitate a Wedding Service that reflects you and your loved ones and not some generic, conveyor belt system that is the same for thousands of people.
I feel my role is to help you create an event to remember, a personalized service to that speaks to your personality and create that atmosphere to really engage your friends, family, colleagues. Even if you don't know what that is yet, I will guide you through the process of really understanding what suits you and your guests. There are no do-overs, so I want to help you make the most of your wedding or event for that wow factor.
Having experience with hotels and venues nationwide and Internationally, I have plenty of industry knowledge and contacts to help make your event easier to navigate. I am Based in Naas, Kildare and within easy reach of Dublin & Wicklow but happy to travel further afield.

Getting married in Ireland is easy with a celebrant but the legal requirements can be a little confusing. Regardless of who you choose to marry you; whether it’s a priest, solemniser or celebrant; you and your partner you have to register your intent of marriage with the HSE at least three months in advance of your preferred wedding day. You will then fill in the relevant details and the HSE registrar will issue a time and date to perform the legal aspect of your marriage. You will have no say in the ceremony as it is a standard 10 to 15 minutes long slot. You can choose the county office where you want get married in but not the venue/location/day/time/registrar or officiate
A third of marriages in Ireland these days are done by wedding celebrants. So you can have the wedding service of your dreams, where and when you want. You can do the legal aspect at another point in time.
As a wedding celebrant, I can craft your personalized ceremony, telling your story in your own home, on the side of mountain or waterfall, in a football stadium, or on a canal barge floating down the royal or grand canals in Dublin or Kildare.
