I advise couples to choose a celebrant they connect with. Someone they feel instantly at ease with. When I first met Sarah and Robert the roles were reversed! I was captivated by their story, and I knew right away, theirs was a story I could not wait to tell! <3
Sarah and Robert celebrated their wedding in the historic Mill House, Slane, Co Meath. They chose a handfasting ceremony using coloured ribbons that held deep meaning for them and their guests.
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day. You made everything so easy and stress-free. Your professionalism, warmth, and creativity knows no bounds. You blew us away with the ceremony you created for our big day and practically all of our guests commented on how gorgeous it really was. It was the best day of our lives but the ceremony was definitely the highlight and that’s thanks to you. Thanks for all your patience and guidance – Sarah and Robert
I first met Claire, a leading Irish wedding photographer, when we worked together on a surprise vow renewal ceremony, held at the lakeshore in Glendalough. So, I was very honored when she asked me to be the celebrant for her and Patricks wedding.
Having seen Simone working before, I immediately knew I would love to have her at my own wedding too. When planning ours, our main concern for the ceremony was that it would be personalised to us and intimate. Simone worked with us to achieve exactly that and went above and beyond our expectations every step of the way. She thought of every detail to incorporate our loved ones and each ceremony element she helped us choose reflected us completely, including having our dog involved in the ceremony! Simone’s manner is kind and compassionate and she is deeply committed to achieving her client’s desires. Many of our guests also commented on her warm and friendly disposition throughout the ceremony. We are so thrilled to have had Simone deliver our ceremony and couldn’t recommend her more highly – Claire and Patrick
Claire and Patrick’s wedding was elegant and timeless. It was also the first time I worked with a ring bearer who was a (all be it gorgeous) golden retreiver! She was as good as gold. A last-minute decision to hold the ceremony inside turned out to be the right one, as it poured rain a few minutes in! I have such beautiful memories of Claire and Patrick’s day, and feel privileged to have been part of it <3
Attending a wedding fair, wedding showcase or wedding show is all part of planning your wedding. With the exception of summer, hotels and specialist venues host wedding fairs the rest of the year. Some showcase their services, and others will invite a range of preferred wedding suppliers. Continue reading →
We this is very exciting! A Mrs2Be Brides Choice nomination is a big deal for me! Creating and delivering a wedding ceremony, on one of the most important days in a couple’s life to that point, is an enormous responsibility. While many think the ability to perform a ceremony comes naturally, they do not realize the amount of preparation that goes on behind the scene. The hours I spend rehearsing and reviewing the ceremony or arriving at a venue two hours before kick off to ensure everything is ‘ship shape’, is never time wasted.
I am nominated in the Celebrant category, but there are a few more categories I think I am eligible for:
Acrobatics: as I am a dab hand at catching the mother of the bride as she trips on the red carpet (true story).
Florist: for making a button hole for the father of the groom out of flowers from the venue’s garden (also a true story)
Beautician: for not crying when hot wax poured down my arm from a toppled candle (another true story)
So thank you from the bottom of my heart for the nomination and good luck to all the nominees, you all rock!
