I am an Ordained Interfaith Minister, living in Ireland, honouring and serving people of all beliefs and none.

I Celebrate  Legal Weddings and I will guide you through the process of creating a Ceremony written just for you that expresses your love and commitment to each other in a unique, personalised and meaningful way. Your Ceremony can include bespoke elements including Hand Wrapping/ Hand Fasting, Secret Box, Sand, Stone, Unity Candle and many more enhancements. 

The ceremony will reflect your  personal stories, philosophy of life, and personality. I will help make the planning through to delivery of your ceremony as stress-free and simple as possible.

I have taken a vow of inclusivity and welcome diversity of gender, orientation, colour, nationality, ability and culture within the bounds of Irish law and I have no requirement to speak about any parent organisation during your ceremony.

I will create and perform your Ceremony at your Location on any day of the year at any time. In choosing your venue remember that for legal solemnising your venue must have an identifiable address and be open to the public.

For a legal marriage, you need to Register Your Intent To Marry with the HSE at least 3 months prior to your wedding date, and you need to ensure that your venue is acceptable to the HSE. I will guide you further on this when we meet. Full details of the registration process are available on the HSE Website.

Please contact me to check my availability on your date and to arrange to meet to discuss your ceremony.

My all inclusive fee for creating and officiating at your Ceremony is €595.00. I do not charge for travel or meeting with you to plan your ceremony, for rehearsals (if required) or for the materials I supply for two ceremony enhancements (i.e unity candle, sand or handfasting ceremonies) 

I look forward to joining you on your journey!

Rev. Brenda

Brenda was a pleasure to work with. Made our ceremony very intimate,fun and everyone felt a part of it. We chose the sand ceremony, which allowed our children to be part of the ceremony, it had a lovely feel to it. We would highly recommend Brenda to anyone looking for a celebrant.

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.

Brenda,Thank you so much for creating and delivering our wonderful wedding ceremony. Everyone said they could feel the ‘Love’ And it being Valentine’s Day helped. From our first phone conversation we knew we had chosen the right Celebrant for us. You gave us the ceremony we wanted, so very special and so ‘us’. 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.

This wedding was made great by the wonderful celebrant. All the guests and the lovely couple were put at ease in a very relaxed and enjoyable ceremony. I have a couple of more weddings to attend this year so hopefully Rev. Brenda will be the celebrant at them too.

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.

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!

We had Brenda as our celebrant for our wedding day, and oh my word. She was absolutely amazing from start to finish,so Profesional yet made us feel so relaxed and chilled on our day. The lead up to our wedding she had everything in hand and it was one less thing for us to worry about. She gave us amazing choices, what we could fit into our service what would suit us the couple our family and friends, every one was in tears by the time our service was completed because our ceremony was so special and had extra little touches in it, that was down to Brenda her touches her professionalism. She is definitely some one we would recommend to make your day so so special. She truly is one in a million.

In fairness Patrice, Brian and you were such a delight to work with, you were open to suggestions and so totally inclusive of your family & friends. I could really feel the power of your love guiding me in creating your ceremony.
