Hello and Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.  It's such a magical time planning your special day and I would love to be a part of it.  

I am a member of the Spiritual Ceremonies team for a number of years now and have helped hundreds of couples have a legally binding yet personal ceremony.  I officiate at Spiritual Wedding Ceremonies all over Ireland and am a registered solemniser with the HSE.  This means I can sign the legal paperwork at the end of your wedding ceremony.

I am passionate about what I do and recently won the coveted title of the Mrs2Be Bride's Choice awards 2017 as Best Wedding Celebrant of the year.  

I like to learn about you as a couple and based on that can guide you through the process so that you include elements that have meaning to you and speak volumes about you as a couple.  You are free to choose any readings or music for your ceremony, you can remember loved ones that have passed away and also include religious elements if you wish.  

I can also perform the ceremony indoors and outdoors (outdoors is subject to requirements under the Civil Registrations legislation).

How to book an appointment to give notice:

Visit to book your appointment with your local office. It doesn't matter what county you are getting married in Ireland, you can give notice in any HSE office. If there are no available appointments, don't worry, some office are not set up for online bookings. Just look up your nearest office and phone them.

If you are living abroad:

You can give your notice by post and then you need to present in person a minimum of 5 working days before. Once you have prior agreement with the HSE registrar, they can reduce the number of days notice.

Here is the link for all the information you need about giving notice:

If you are getting married in Northern Ireland, the process for giving notice is different. You will find all the information you need here:

Feel free to message me with any questions you may have and I would be delighted to help you in any way I can.

Grá agus Solas,

Berenice made this such a memorable day for us! We appreciated the warmth and personal attention we received. We particularly liked the relaxed nature of our ceremony. It was very ‘us’ Our sincerest thanks.

Berenice was amazing. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and was able to make the ceremony feel really personal. All of our guests commented at how personal it was and Berenice really made this possible. we were both at ease on the day as we felt like we knew Berenice by that point too. Can't thanks her enough for making our day so perfect

Berenice officiated at our wedding last week. The ceremony was just beautiful and we got so so many compliements from our guests. Berenice was fantastic to deal with and she really made our wedding the special day that it was. We couldnt recommend her highly enough. Thanks Berenice!

Berenice officiated our ceremony on 13 September 2018. We met Berenice at my sister's wedding 3 years ago and could not believe how lovely the ceremony was. My husband and I knew immediately after getting engaged that Berenice was going to do our wedding. It was the perfect day. Berenice helped us prepare during our meetings and emails and made us feel so at ease on the day. The way she speaks and makes you feel is so special. We had the greatest ceremony and are so happy Berenice was there for us. There are not enough ways to say thank you to this special person and we wouldn't recommend anyone else. Thank you Berenice. Next stop could be a baby naming ceremony :)

We both want to thank you for the wonderful wedding ceremony you crafted for us at our recent marriage in Country Clare. From our first meeting - to the ceremony itself, we knew we were in very capable hands. We especially appreciated your calming words just as we were about to enter the Marquee in front of our expectant guests! Without exception, our guests commented on how your warm and friendly manner really made them feel part of the ceremony; many told us that it was one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies they have attended (and they’ve attended many!). The gay community doesen’t yet have a heritage of wedding tradition to draw upon, however the combination of readings, poetry, music and symbols such as the Unity Candle, all guided by your suggestions, proved that we can create something unique and beautiful that we hope will serve as inspiration for future generations. Miguel and I will cherish the memories of the event for ever.

massive thank you to Berenice and spiritual ceremonies. From the initial email they have been so responsive and helpful. Our ceremony was more than we could have wished for. It was so calming to have berenice directing us. We are very grateful for your professionalism and how you delivered our story. We have had so many compliments from guests saying that it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever been to. We were so impressed and happy by the end of it and it set a great tone for the day. Highly recommended

Berenice was absolutely fantastic. We met several months before the ceremony and Berenice wanted to get to know us as much as possible in order to bring a personal touch to the whole ceremony. Many people commented how it was by far the best ceremony they have ever been to. I would recommend Berenice to anyone.

Berenice was our solemniser for our wedding on the 27th May 2018 at Palmerstown House Estate. She helped us create a very personalised and meaningful ceremony. All our guests were so impressed. Berenice were always available to answer our questions and she ensured that we have all the documents/vows/details needed for the ceremony. Definitely recommend!!

Alan & I would love to thank Berenice from the bottom of our hearts for creating such an exceptionally beautiful ceremony for us last Saturday. She was a total professional from the day we booked her last year right up-to the day. She came to calm me before the ceremony and even comforted me when I became quite emotion throughout. I can’t thank her enough for writing such a gorgeous ceremony and the guests all raved about her afterwards. For anyone thinking of booking Spiritual Ceremonies - my advice would be, go for it! You’ll receive an exceptional service of professionalism and genuine care for your day. Thank you so much Berenice, and Spiritual Ceremonies.

We had our beautiful wedding on the 14th April and had the lovely Berenice. We met Berenice at a wedding fair at our chosen hotel and instantly knew we wanted her to do our wedding. From a casual meeting a few months before she was able to gather enough information to know exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted.she was so helpful throughout the whole process and if we had any questions we knew we could just ask. We would highly recommend Berenice to anyone who is looking for that personal touch to their wedding ceremony.
