I am Michael Grace, a husband, a father and a celebrant. I am a HSE registered solemniser with Entheos Ireland allowing me to perform legal weddings in the 32 counties of Ireland.

I am passionate about people and celebrating love and life. I strive to create meaningful and inspiring ceremonies with the overriding principles of diversity and inclusiveness. I believe in the absolute equality of all people and their choices in life.

I create ceremonies with couples and families that are unique and personal with deep meaning and are precious to the you. I welcome choice, allowing for all religions and none, which gives you the freedom to create ceremonies that are uniquely personal and have a deep connection with you.

I perform wedding, elopement, baby naming, vow renewal and commitment ceremonies. I also offer funeral and memorial services. I am from the seaside village of Donabate in north County Dublin and will conduct ceremonies in the surrounding area, around the country and abroad.

Michael's warm and friendly nature made it impossible to find a better man for the job. Once we met him we knew our decision had been made.
His professionalism is second to none and he took incredible care to include personal details in our ceremony. We were blown away by the beautiful atmosphere he created. Many of our guests complimented the ceremony amazed at the personal touches within the ceremony, many of which were suggested by Michael. He took great care in curating a touching ceremony.
Everyone felt at ease and relaxed and truly felt a part of the celebration. He really set the tone for the day.
We wanted something a little different and Michael really did create an unforgettable day for us. Advising us on what might work best for us. Michael guided us on every aspect and gave his honest opinion which we greatly appreciated.
We couldn't be more pleased with Team Grace. We can't wait to work with Michael again for future occasions. The best in the business!

We could not be more grateful to Michael for our beautiful ceremony. We had so many guests who told us it was the most moving and personal ceremony they had ever been to. We weren't really sure of what we wanted but we knew what we didn't want, and Michael guided us perfectly and really took our requests into consideration. He has a lovely speaking voice and was so warm and friendly to everyone on the day. We enjoyed the ceremony so much more than we were expecting. We can't recommend him highly enough!

Michael was a pleasure to work with from the very first Zoom call to the wedding day. We had no idea how to go about creating our dream wedding ceremony, but Michael provided much-needed structure and guidance while still taking our preferences into account. We ended up with a ceremony that suited us perfectly!

The guest feedback was amazing! Our family and friends commented on how the ceremony was so uniquely us, and our parents appreciated having Michael as a source of calm on the morning of the wedding. Not even us moving the ceremony location at the last minute could shake him!

We would certainly recommend Michael to any couples who want a relaxed and fun but extremely personal ceremony on their special day. Thanks for everything, Michael!

When we first went about the preparations of our wedding, I taught gosh where do you start. I Googled celebrants ,within the third person out popped your name. I taught sure let's give him a ring first, and within that phone call I knew you were it. We laughed and laughed and chatted and how lovely all our conversations really were.

Peter and Myself are truly grateful you were the one who married us. The grace and beauty you put into our ceremony we will and nor will our guests, forget. Nothing was ever a worry, a problem and nothing was impossible. We had this feeling like you had know us all our life's and what better way to feel.

I believe for some it was their first Civil ceremony and has now changed the way they look at things. Our parents loved you!! You will always have a special place in our hearts!.

Michael was the celebrant for our recent wedding and he is just amazing! We are thrilled we found him. He made our ceremony so special and personal, we were so happy with it and it was both our favourite parts of our day. All of our guests commented about how great it was. He also is just genuinely so lovely and makes the process of putting together the ceremony so easy with lots of video calls to talk through the important things about the day and to get to know you as a couple. On the day he went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. He even goes so far as to ensure all other parties on the day like the photographer and musicians etc know all the key parts of the ceremony so that they are ready for those important moments. We highly recommend him to couples looking for a celebrant for their ceremony, you will not regret it.

It was absolutely perfect and we are just completely overwhelmed with how our day went. The amount of complements we have had from guests telling us how personal and enjoyable the ceremony was unbelievable. As I said to you on the day, there is no way we could have ever hoped for a better time. We will never forget it.

We could not have picked a better celebrant for our big day. Michael is so warm and professional and very easy to plan with. He explained everything for us in detail in the run up to the wedding and was always available when we had any questions about the ceremony.
We had a great experience on our wedding day as Michael was very engaging with the guests. The way he presented our story made it seem like he has known us for years. Everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was and in fact most people said that it was the best ceremony that they had ever been to. We will be forever grateful to you Michael, for making our day everything we ever wanted and more.
We highly recommend Michael to be your wedding celebrant. He has the perfect balance no matter what your style. Our day would not have been as special without Michael.

Michael was amazing from start to finish. Felt like we got a wedding planner for free. He made sure the room was set up beforehand and that everything was perfect when I arrived. Don?t hesitate. Book Michael. He really made our day feel so special

Michael was beyond amazing to work with and was an even better person to be around. He helped us every step of the way and setup multiple video chats to talk with us and make sure the ceremony and vows were going to be perfect for the special day. We weren't able to meet Michael in person before the ceremony but when we did it was like we had known him for years. He is an amazing person and truly made our day even better and we could not recommend him enough!

Michael Grace was the celebrant for our wedding on March 27th. From the beginning he was exceptional! Due to COVID restrictions we did not meet him until the day but we felt like we knew him well through his communication via Zoom meetings and emails. He was extremely flexible and relaxed when our venue changed just 6 weeks before the wedding and he wrote and delivered a beautiful ceremony that reflected our relationship and personalities perfectly. I would highly recommend Michael!

Yesterday was to be our special day and due to our amazing family and friends it still was. My fab sister arranged a surprise zoom commitment sand ceremony for us to mark the day. The celebrant Michael was so kind and made the day so special and personal for us even via computer screen so I just thought that I would pop his details here incase anyone was looking for a celebrant, I would highly recommend him???? Now lets just hope the 4th September brings as much sunshine????
