Your wedding ceremony with me will be personal and memorable - a true reflection of yourselves. 

I want my couples to enjoy getting married!  The ceremony is central to your wedding day and I will guide you at every step to make sure you are happy and comfortable throughout. My clients describe me as "a safe pair of hands".

There may be lots of guests involved in rituals and readings. Your four legged family member might have a role in the ceremony (I'm very much a dog person!). Or, small, intimate and simple might be more your style. The decision is yours and I will help you to create the best fit for you as a couple.

I am friendly, approachable and always available to deal with your queries. As an HAI accredited celebrant and HSE registered wedding solemniser, wedding ceremonies performed by me are recognised as legally binding under Irish law and we complete the legal paperwork on the day.

I live in Co. Leitrim which means that I am well located to serve most venues in the Midlands, West and Northwest but am happy to travel further afield if required.

Contact me if you would like to check availability or arrange a short introductory chat.

I honestly can’t recommend Gail enough! Hand on heart I can say that anyone that has Gail solemnise their wedding is just so unbelievably lucky! Love and positivity just flows through her, she was such a big help not only on the day but in the run up to the wedding, any questions I had about the venue/how the day should flow/ the legalities involved, Gail just knew straight away and anything she didn’t know off the top of her head was followed up with an emailed answer within minutes as Gail had gotten the information for me! Wedding preparations are just so overwhelming, even with our small wedding of family and friends and when the nerves hit that morning I knew I could just send Gail a message to say I needed some help and it was no problem at all! I really enjoyed our meetings with Gail, she’s just such a lovely person (and looked absolutely stunning on the day) The script of our wedding and our memories of the planning along with the day are something I’ll treasure forever, Thank you so much Gail! :)

Gail was the most calming presence during our wedding ceremony, she guided us through the whole process with ease and ensured everything ran smoothly. She is a true professional and took great care in creating a unique and personal wedding ceremony for us. We felt like Gail really enjoys what she does and this came across in both our communication with her prior to the wedding and her delivery of the ceremony on the day. She has a kind and relaxed demeanour which was noted by many of our guests and really set the tone for our special day! Thank you Gail!

Gail was absolutely incredible, so warm and professional. She truly listened to us and created the most unique beautiful, honest and personal ceremony. She captured our humour and seriousness equally with such art. For many of my very traditional family members it was their first experience of a humanist ceremony but we had full faith that she would deliver. The highlight of the day for myself and my husband and indeed all our guests was the ceremony. Gail is truly the best advocate for humanist ceremonies. Could not recommend her enough.

We chose Gail as our Celebrant, and we could not have been happier with our experience. From our first discussion with Gail, she put us at ease. She offered a wealth of suggestions about the ceremony and different options that would work for us. We had zoom calls to walk through the options and Gail always responded to email queries very quickly which helps when there is so much to organize, we were never waiting on a reply. With Gail, we ended up with a ceremony that was uniquely ours and as it was finalized well in advance, we were very familiar with it on the day leaving us relaxed enough to be able to enjoy it. We couldn't have been happier with how it went on the day and Gail was a very large part of making the guests feel relaxed and part of the ceremony. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gail as a Celebrant.

Gail was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. On the day itself Gail instantly put us at ease as she has a lovely calming presence. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed our ceremony and how pleasant Gail was. We couldn't recommend her enough.

We knew we wanted a humanist wedding and after reviewing the many different celebrants we came across Gail and how thankful we are that we found her. From the moment we first made contact Gail made everything so easy and uncomplicated. She got to know us as a couple and made the ceremony so personal to us. Many of our guests had not been to a humanist wedding before and came up to me after to say how beautiful the ceremony was and how it was just so personal and reflected us as a couple. We couldn't recommend Gail enough and we are so glad she was part of our day. Thanks so much Gail!

Gail was such a pleasure to deal with in the build up to our wedding and an absolute star on the day. She made our ceremony so relaxed and enjoyable and it was undoubtedly the highlight of the day for both us and our guests. Highly recommend!

Gail went above and beyond to make sure our ceremony was perfect for us. We had a tiny ceremony with only 5 other people, including our 2 kids and our dog Sammy also made an appearance. Gail made sure everything ran smoothly on the day (not an easy task with 2 kids and a dog), she was always available to answer any questions we had beforehand and the actual ceremony was exactly how we imagined and reflexed us as a couple so well. Thank you Gail!

Throughout the process, Gail was professional, organised and immediately put us at ease. She began the process of creating our ceremony early, working with us to create one that was right for us. She encouraged us to add a little humour and some personal touches, and we’re so glad we took on Gail’s suggestions and advise. Gails relaxed nature and friendly approach made the ceremony just so memorable and we feel very lucky to have been married by Gail! Joanne & Jeff.

Gail was our celebrant for our small and intimate ceremony in August 22. She was a spectacular celebrant who got the sentiment of wedding absolutely spot on. She was so kind and interested in us as a couple, and interested in the wedding that we had planned. Our families had not attended a humanist wedding and both families were blown away by it, and mention her role in the day whenever we talk about the wedding. My brother is getting married in 2024, and is hoping to request Gail. Thanks again for everything, you made our day so special.

We knew within moments of meeting Gail that she would be the person to marry us. Gail was so warm, affable, and open we connected immediately; we just felt so comfortable with her. Gail guided us effortlessly in putting together a ceremony that was so uniquely ours. We couldn't imagine having any one else as such an integral part of such an important day. 100% recommend Gail - again, thank you. Sarah & Simon

Gail jumped in as our wedding celebrant at short notice when our original celebrant had a family emergency, and she absolutely nailed it. She struck a lovely tone that balanced fun and emotion, never overly serious, which is just what we wanted! Loads of our guests have commented on how lovely the ceremony was, and how relaxed she made it. We couldn't stop smiling throughout! She also really put us at ease when we got stuck in traffic and we only showed up just at the scheduled time of the ceremony, but she had everything sorted with no fuss while we were out. Gail was at the centre of the best day of our lives and we'd heartily recommend her to everyone!

Gail guided us through the wedding preparations and the day with ease, and had a calming influence on us all. She supported us in drafting a personal wedding script, and gave great insights into what would work well and how to handle more difficult and emotional parts of the ceremony. She was very patient on the day, and kept us on track while allowing the ceremony to feel relaxed and natural. We received so many compliments from our guests on the beautiful and personal ceremony. We highly recommend Gail.

Gail was fantastic from start to finish durning the whole wedding process. She helped us to plan the intimate ceremony that we both wanted and make it unique and special for us and our family. She made us both feel so relaxed on the morning of our wedding and all throughout the ceremony. Would highly recommend her to other couples getting married.

We wanted our wedding ceremony to simple and meaningful to us. Gail was able to guide us through the legal requirements of a Humanist ceremony and provided us with a framework to build the ceremony we wanted. Throughout she was professional and caring. She created a service with us that exceeded our expectations and made our special day memorable. We would not hesitate to recommend Gail.

Overall, we had a great experience, and we would definitely recommend Gail if you are considering doing a humanist wedding. From the start, we had a very warm, positive, friendly and helpful impression, and this continued all the way through the preparation and on the day itself. She walked us through each stage of the ceremony really well (we chose a humanist ceremony), providing suggestions on things we may want to do in our ceremony, while giving us the space to decide what we wanted. She also incorporated our own personal twists into the ceremony. All our correspondence prior to the wedding was virtual too, as we live outside of Ireland, and everything went smoothly.

Gail was exceptionally kind and simultaneously practical. She aided us as we sculpted the multitude of options for a free form humanist ceremony into something meaningful and correct for our needs and desires. Gail was understanding about the pressure of time, but generously helped to ensure we met our goals with planning by setting out clear but flexible deadlines to ensure we had made the necessary decisions well and with consideration. Overall, Gail is a wonderful person to have on your team as you work toward what is sure with her assistance to be a wonderful celebration.
