I am a team member of Spiritual Ceremonies and have had the honour of officiating ceremonies for many couples in some of the most beautiful venues, I’ve worked with couples from home and further abroad and consider myself to be the luckiest man alive to get to do this as a job. I am passionate about every ceremony I do and treat each one with the utmost respect and understanding that it deserves. I am available to officiate anywhere in Ireland and love to travel and experience the different venues that are now available to couples wishing to say “I Do” in there own intimate and personal way.
I am one of a large team of Registered Solemnisers available in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, and I can perform the legal element of a wedding ceremony. I also perform vow renewals, wedding blessings, naming ceremonies and end of Life Celebrations (Funerals).
Choosing the right celebrant for you is a hugely important step in the process of planning your special day which is why I’m always available for a chat, to listen to your needs and concerns so as to help you make that decision. I’m happy just to help in any way.
If you have chosen me as your Celebrant, we first arrange to meet at a location that suits you both best and over a cuppa we can begin to plan your ceremony. I will take you through every step from start to finish. I always like to advise couples that your ceremony should reflect who you are as individuals and as a couple. You can have songs or hymns, readings or just poems or quotes. Make it as religious or as non-religious as you wish.
You can involve your family members and children as much as you would like aswell. I will work very closely with you to ensure every word of your ceremony is meaningful to you and is as it should be.
My motto that I like to advise is “Of all the worries that you may have planning a wedding, with me; your ceremony will not be one of them!”
I will be there for you every step of the way and will always check and check again that every word, name and phrase is perfect on the day.
There are many ways you can choose to symbolise your marriage during the ceremony and I will discuss all of these at length with you both in our initial meeting.
You can also have your ceremony indoors or outdoors (outdoors is subject to requirements under the Civil Registrations legislation) and you can have it done legally on any day of the week.
How to book an appointment to give notice:

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 day’s notice.
You must give a minimum of 3 month’s notice if you are getting married in Ireland and can give notice from 12 months before your wedding date. Once you receive your paperwork from the HSE, this is valid for 6 months after your wedding date i.e if for some reason your wedding doesn't go ahead on the date given, your paperwork is still valid for 6 months after this date. *** Make sure you return the paperwork within 1 month after your wedding and collect your marriage certificate.
