Real Ceremonies

Every ceremony is different, every couple unique!

Having travelled the world together, Amanda and Shaun returned to their home county of Donegal to celebrate their marriage with family and friends.

The wedding rings were warmed with love by everyone present and then placed in Amanda and Shaun’s hands. Each strand of the gold cold representing the facets of their life together, secured the rings within, and the ‘Hand Blessing’was read.

The best wedding vows are those spoken straight from the heart.  Amanda and Shaun openly shared stories of their adventures and how it united them in a most unique way.

Thank you for delivering the most perfect ceremony on our wedding day! Without you it truly would not have been so special.  You are so very good at what you do and I would recommend you highly. Thank you so much and we will never forget the most perfect ceremony you delivered.

Susan and Scott – Finnstown Castle Hotel, Lucan, Co. Dublin

No one believes in love at first sight, until that special person comes along and steals your heart!simone-1-copy

Susan and Scott created a ceremony that considered everyone who joined them to celebrant their wedding day. Family who had passed were remembered with beautiful family photos and the lighting of a remembrance candle.

From the moment we first spoke with Simone, we knew she was the right person to be our celebrant. She really listened to us and put a special effort into making sure we were 110% happy with the ceremony. Our wedding was a very special day to us and we thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony – we felt it hit exactly the right notes and how we wanted to start off celebrating the whole day. Our family and friends all commented on how personal the ceremony was, and they’d never attended one like it. We would highly recommend Simone as a celebrant to anyone looking to celebrate a special life event. Thank you so much Simone.

Elisha and Mark – Ballynahinch Castle, Connemara, Co.Mayo

With a hand crafted bouquet and button-hole made from the pages of a Cinderella book, Elisha found the perfect spot for their ceremony. A small archway hidden away from view, where the rushing of the nearby river was the only sound to break the silence.

Elisha and Mark choose the ancient ritual of hand fasting to ‘tie the knot’ and to make personal commitments to each other.   Their ceremony closed with a reminder of the responsibility that comes when we hold the dreams of another in our hands, done through the words of W.B. Yeats – The Cloths of Heaven.

Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. I truly appreciate all the hard work you put into our ceremony. It was a beautiful ceremony and day.

Sofia and Declan – Slaney Manor, Wexford

Sofia and Declan’s families joined in a unity candle ceremony representing their independent children, and the love, guidance and affection they will continue to share through out their married life.

Two cultures and two families from opposite sides of the world, joined together to celebrate this wonderful occasion and to witness Sofia and Declan bravely share vows in the native tongue of the other!

I simply have no words to thank you for the fantastic ceremony you prepared for us. Everyone said how beautiful it was. You did an excellent job!
