Every great relationship needs to start somewhere. A Beautiful Ceremony is a group of Solemnisers & Celebrants who absolutely love weddings! Your wedding day is all about you, so the team will factor in your style, personalities and theme from start to finish. They will bring together your ideas, beliefs and way of life to make this event one of a kind.
From a small intimate occasion to a large memorable celebration; they work with you to write a ceremony that will echo your love, commitment and feelings towards each other. Escorting you to create a ceremony which you, your family and friends will remember forever. They make ceremonies fun, happy, personal – and most of all they make ceremonies meaningful and unique to you.
Why choose a Wedding Celebrant? Why choose It’s Your Day? For that very reason! It is YOUR wedding day. A warm and personal service, giving you the ceremony you want – from the traditional to the unconventional, anywhere in Ireland (and beyond!), up a mountain, down on the beach, in a chic hotel or a romantic castle, any time of day (or night!), seven days a week – is their commitment to you.
Whatever your dream is for your wedding ceremony, let’s make it yours. The traditions or beliefs you hold (if any) can be combined to create a meaningful ceremony which is, after all, what your wedding day is all about. Your ceremony will be created around your own story and if you choose to have an enhancement there are many beautiful ceremonies that have their roots in old customs and traditions.

The wedding ceremony is vitally important, particularly for a non-church wedding. If you didn’t want a wedding ceremony, then you wouldn’t need a wedding day.

It’s a deeply personal experience and DD is passionate about delivering a beautiful ceremony for every couple.
He’ll ensure all aspects of the ceremony are appropriate to what the couple wants – the reading, the rituals, the music, the family involvement – a big day is about the little details. And the right ceremony has a lasting impression on the guests as much as the couple.
