  • Reviews

We met during our training as Interfaith Ministers and are very happy to say that the 4 of us have become firm friends ever since!

We are all HSE Registered Solemnisers and we perform fully legal weddings on any day of the week throughout Ireland.

As Interfaith Ministers we have taken a vow of inclusivity, welcome diversity of beliefs, gender, orientation, colour, nationality, ability and culture within the bounds of Irish law.

We will guide you through the process of creating a bespoke Ceremony that expresses your love and commitment to each other in a unique, memorable and meaningful way. As we are not aligned with any particular religion we have the freedom to tailor your ceremony to your requirements.

Our wedding ceremonies are legal, bespoke, personal and bridge the gap between church, civil, spiritual or humanist; whatever type of ceremony you wish for we will make that wish come true!

.... And when a couple does book a ceremony with us, they don’t just get 30 minutes. They get meetings, telephone calls, face to face meetings. They get to sit with us and plan their ceremony from complete scratch. Not a template, not a hastily put together generic ceremony that could apply to anyone but a bespoke ceremony that is shaped around you and your partner. They get us planning and preparing for weeks and months before their ceremony. They get drafts and re-drafts until we get it right. They get unity candles, sand or handfasting ceremonies and other ceremony enhancements. They get the benefit of our collective 20 years of experience creating Ceremonies and access to resources that we have built up over the years. They get a ceremony that looks effortless but has taken years of honing our skills, and hours of our time to get right. And at the end they get their guests saying, “A Ceremony 4 You created such a beautiful Ceremony .”

We also create Ceremony for all of Life's Special Occasions; Baby Naming / Baby Blessing, Commitment Ceremonies, Memorial Ceremonies and Funerals in fact ‘A Ceremony 4 You’ 

Our Rev Brenda O'Grady also has a listing on weddingsonline at Brenda O'Grady Registered Solemniser | Wedding Celebrant where you can see her wonderful reviews - unfortunately it is not possible to successfully link the two listings and reviews!!

I will forever be grateful for finding Brenda. From day one she has been so supportive and really made our ceremony so meaningful and special. She listens to what we envision and helped give me ideas on what I could do. Nothing was to much for her and she truly made our wedding so special.

Booking Brenda for our wedding ceremony was the best decision we made, from the very beginning Brenda was personable, professional and an absolute delight to deal with. Brenda met with us online and created the most stunning, personal and bespoke ceremony. Brenda gave us a portfolio of material and guided us as we chose readings, vows and blessings. We had a sand, rose and knot tying ceremony which was completely designed by Brenda and we wouldn’t change one thing. It was the highlight of our memories, and our guests were raving about it afterwards! If looking for a celebrant look no further! Thanks Brenda for ensuring our day was unique and special to us!

We had the pleasure of meeting Brenda three years ago when we booked the date for your wedding she went through everything we would need and what she could do , straight away we clicked and was happy to have found her, then COVID 19 hit and we had to change the dates 5 times but we finally on April 30 2022 we got married and the Rev Brenda did such a great job from the way she set up such detail and because she took some time to talk to me and Tatyana before the wedding she had a lovely personalised ceremony for us we picked the sand ,binding of the hands, lighting of the candles and she had a extra one we didn’t even know about. Thank you Rev Brenda so worth the money we were very happy and all that was at the wedding had only good things to say about the ceremony

Edel O'Connell was our Solemniser for the wedding. She was absolutely fabulous! She was so professional and personable from the start. We knew immediately when we had a chat with her that she was the right person for us. She was absolutely lovely and patient and just a genuinely nice person. Our wedding ceremony was fabulous. It was so personal to us and flowed so well. It was fun and emotional and tasteful. We had forgotten a document and Edel was so relaxed about it and worked around it until we got it a little later. Overall, we could not have been happier with Edel or our ceremony. Our family and friends said it was one of the nicest ceremonies they had ever been at. Even the wedding singer said the same! Thanks so much Edel. We really appreciate your patience and kindness xx

Our wedding was delayed by 2 years because of COVID and we tried 5 times to tie the knot. It finally happened in March 2022 and it was the happiest day of our lives. We were so lucky to find Edel. She was so understanding, kind and genuinely interested in us as a couple. Edel helped us plan the ceremony and allowed us to express our relationship with our chosen songs, readings and traditions. On the day, Edel was fanatastic! She made everyone feel so welcome and Theo and I felt so comfortable in her presence. All our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. If you want someone energetic, fun and loving to solemnise your wedding, Edel O'Connell is the lady for the job.

Brenda was an absolute joy to work with. During our initial conversation she ran through the running order for the ceremony itself. This included ideas around readings, periods of reflection, places for musical interludes and specific ceremonies such as a sand ceremony, handfasting and ceremony of light. We were then sent material for readings and vows as well as a questionnaire to fill out which allowed Brenda to create a very personalized celebrant address for the day. Once we had made decisions on the various parts of the ceremony we were then sent a draft of the ceremony. There were no issues with making amendments to suit our needs and Brenda was very keen on including family and friends during the ceremony itself. On the day of the wedding Brenda arrived 2 hours beforehand to set things up and to ensure things were perfect. All of our guests commented on how lovely and personal Brenda made the ceremony. We would have no hesitation in recommending Brenda to any couple looking for a wedding celebrant. She really helped in making our day very special and made it completely stress free for us.

Brenda was so easy to deal with and develop a rapport with from our initial contact. Brenda provided a broad framework with lots of ideas from which to build our bespoke ceremony. Brenda was flexible on the day as we were unsure how much our children would engage with the ceremony. Organising times to meet virtually with Brenda was always easy so many of our guests on the day commented on how personal and meaningful the ceremony was.

From the first day I rang Brenda and spoke with her on the phone I knew she would do a beautiful service. It was obvious this was more than just a job to her and she really cared about what we wanted. We have 3 small children and she included them throughout the entire ceremony. Any questions I had in the lead up to the wedding were answered quickly and nothing was an issue. So many of our guests came to me afterwards and commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was and how lovely Brenda was. I would not hesitate in recommending her for your ceremony. You will not be disappointed!

We were directed to them by another service and Rev. Edel O’Connell was available on the date and agreed to officiate our ceremony on a short notice. We are extremely happy with her service. She was thorough and took a lot of care in making our ceremony simple and personalised to our likes. Ours was a civil ceremony and we belong to different countries and faiths. She helped us choose and add both traditional and non traditional elements to our wedding and helped us make it more intimate than just a formal civil ceremony. We would recommend her services to anyone who asks. She is a kind lady and her presence made us both feel comfortable on a busy and nerve racking day.

Rev. Brenda is a truly outstanding celebrant. Brenda took the time early on to listen to our ideas for our wedding ceremony and provided thoughtful suggestions on what would make for an unforgettable ceremony. Brenda has an eye for detail, including incorporating our stories to make for a very tailored and personalised ceremony. Brenda goes above and beyond the call of duty, with scheduling catch-ups at convenient times and doing whatever it takes to make the wedding day itself run smoothly. We could not recommend Rev.

We felt as if we had known her years, she made the ceremony so personal and all the small details were so thought out to the music, readings and sand ceremony. She put her whole heart into her words throughout our day and We couldn’t have asked for a more memorable day.

Edel was amazing to deal with. She made our ceremony so personal for myself, my partner and kids. She was always just the other end of the phone when we had any questions or needed any help and I couldn't recommend her enough. All our guests complimented our ceremony on how efficient and intimate was. Thank you Edel x

Firstly, with COVID we messed around with dates and Edel was incredibly accommodating and understanding throughout. Always going above and beyond be be helpful. Edel is the kindest and most professional lady. She conducts herself and the ceremony with such ease, elegance and grace. She works with you to create the exact ceremony you want which in our case was no frills. She’s thoughtful in her approach and makes you and all of your guests feel truly engaged and comfortable in the most magical way. Book your wedding with Edel- you will not regret it.

Brenda went above and beyond for our wedding ceremony. We only gave her about 3 weeks notice but she pulled everything together and we definitely didn't feel like we missed out because of the short notice. Our ceremony was relaxed, intimate, special to us and was about us, our relationship and our future together. We included the wine / love letters, handfasting, unity candle & exchange of coins. Also 2 readings and our own vows. We also got to keep a copy of the ceremony after. Our guests commented on Brenda that they felt she was genuinely happy for us and was invested in us which was so nice to hear. I would highly recommend Brenda to a couple getting married.
Response from Brenda O'Grady Wedding and Family Celebrant - Registered Solemniser
Ollie & Sinead, Thank you for your lovely words, I loved working with you both. It was your love for each other and your friends and families that made the atmosphere on the day. Your journey together is so beautiful and I feel so privileged to have held your ceremony for you xx

Couldn't recommend these guys enough. Edel was a lady throughout. Had us on top of the ceremony plans well in advance of the wedding which stood to us when government guidelines changed so many times in the weeks leading up to it. Edel made sure we were looked after until the end and everything was perfect on the day.

Brenda was professional, accommodating and very helpful to us, despite the constraints of a pandemic. She met with us on several occasions via Zoom prior to the wedding at times convenient to us. With theses she seemed to get the essence of us. She made our day very memorable for us and our families. Some of our guests said it was the nicest ceremony they had attended. She clearly put time and effort into preparing for the day. We would have no hesitation recommending her. Thank you Brenda.

Thank you also for our beautifully presented keepsake bag, you even had some of the rose petals in it! Each line of our wedding ceremony was so meaningful to us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating this for us.

We travelled from Iowa to the beautiful Slieve Bloom Mountains for our magical wedding. Guided from start to finish by the wonderful Brenda. Our ceremony was so emotional, she captured our personalities, and truly reflected us in our ceremony. She was a fountain of knowledge about where to visit, eat, stay, local folklore, organised a great photographer, florist and as we married the harpist’s tunes resounded over the misty mountains. I would do it all again tomorrow it was just magical. We are so grateful.
Response from Brenda O'Grady Wedding and Family Celebrant - Registered Solemniser
Jon & Jenny, your ceremony was so unique, heartfelt and designed with love even the rain stayed away and despite your heels you made the climb to the viewing platform at the Ridge of Capard! Hope we will make it back there as planned for your vow renewals in 2024!
