I am a team member of Spiritual Ceremonies who have been privileged to have walked with thousands of couples, from all over the world, on their journey toward their special day here in Ireland since 2010. I travel the length and breadth of Ireland, from Cork to Donegal, seven days a week, making memories with our couples on their special day. The definition of spirituality encompasses real self, of us.. truth of our inner self… the inner being, hence why our ceremonies always focus ON YOU.

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). I am highly trained to design your ceremony, to reflect your personal needs because I understand this is one of the most important days of your lives and we ensure your ceremony is created “WITH YOU, FOR YOU ABOUT YOU”.

As a team member at Spiritual Ceremonies, I take time with you to design your ceremony, so that it reflects you as a couple, honouring your beliefs and values, ensuring they are reflected in the content and length of your ceremony. When speaking with me as your Celebrant you can choose any theme of music, readings or poems that convey a message about you and your partner. 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:

Miriam Now that our wedding is over, we have had a few days to relax and unwind. To get back to feeling “normal” after all the excitement. We are sitting in a cosy hotel room, enjoying a few days together. Just us. The memories of our special day are still fresh, as we remember the amazing weekend we just spent with family and friends. People we haven’t seen for years who we just loved meeting again. Mums and Dads who were nervously excited at the thought of all the family coming together...work friends, colleagues... a great mix of nerves and excitement has washed over us for the past few weeks. Its easy to get lost in the fuss, the stress, the expectations, the expense..! But tonight, as we sit together as husband and wife, there is one thing which we both come back to. The thing that has made a permanent mark. One thing more any other which lifted the whole experience of getting married to a different level...it wasn’t the rubbish weather, not the amazing hotel, not the photographer, nor the band, nor the dresses and suits...it was the marriage ceremony. You rolled all of our love for each other into a perfect wedding ceremony, describing us both better than we thought possible and leaving our family and friends in no doubt as to why we were all there that day. It was because of our love, our special story that was never told before, and will probably never be told again, at least not by anyone but us. We had a wedding day to remember. Family and friends, some of whom were skeptical of what a Spiritual ceremony would entail, were proud, surprised, maybe somewhat apologetic in cases..”the nicest wedding ceremony they had been to”...”thats how it should be”...”how did she know all that?” You get the idea! The day was made by the ceremony you put together. Its how it should be really...Its the reason we were there. Everyone was there to help join us together and commit our lives to each other. To help us on our journey. To celebrate. They were part of our marriage now. You made sure we, and they recognised that. It made our marriage day. It will stay with us as we go forward into our new life together. Lots of love, Gerry and Helena. X

Miriam did our ceremony on Wednesday and i could not begin to tell you how amazing she was from first contact until the day. When myself and my husband met her we immediately felt like we knew her years, she made us feel so comfortable when we spoke of our relationship, during the ceremony Miriam relayed this to our guests in the most beautiful way. Everyone spoke after about how amazing and different our ceremony was and everyone found it so emotional. Thanks so much Miriam for making our day it really was the best day of our lives xx

What can we say about Miriam. From the day we met, the passion, thoughtfulness and professionalism just radiated from Miriam. We could not have met anyone better to officiate our wedding ceremony. She is truly one of a kind and Miriam made our day so very special. She set the bar from the offset. She kept us at ease. Her voice is deep and mesmerising. Everyone there hung on to her every word. We are truly grateful to have met Miriam. You will not find anyone better to hold your ceremony. We are eternally grateful for the beautiful memories she helped us create. Jewels & Bing xx

We would like to start off by saying if you are a couple getting ready to make the next step in your relationship by getting married we would without doubt recommend you enlist the services of Miriam Fitzgerald to guarantee your wedding day is made into one of the most intimate, personal and loving days you will ever have together. We entrusted Miriam with one of the biggest days in our lives and to say it was the best decision we made is an understatement. From the moment we met Miriam she made us feel at ease explaining that not to worry about anything about our service she would make sure it would be perfect for us and it was it really was. Miriam not only listened to us both but observed how we reacted to one another and implemented this all into our service which really gave that personal touch something not only we noticed but all our guests commented on after the wedding saying how every part of the service was beautifully done and how they had never been to a wedding like it were it was all so intimate and personal. In the run up to our wedding we had some really bad news when a family member passed away and we didn't know if the wedding would even go ahead but again Miriam was fantastic telling us not to worry whatever we wanted to do she would be there and if we needed anything to contact her at anytime even just for a chat which we found to be a real comfort. We did go ahead with our wedding and Miriam was brilliant. Miriam managed everything and even changed the service only hours before the wedding to include the family member we had lost so suddenly in such a lovely way. We can't even begin to try and say how much we appreciate everything Miriam did for us as any words we could say wouldn't even come close. all we can say is we will cherish that you will forever be apart of our lives as it was you who made us husband & wife. Thanks for everything Karen & Anthony

We have to say we were more than happy with Miriam! We planned our wedding from Germany and were only in Ireland a couple of times before the wedding. Miriam made sure that she was available to meet us whenever we found the time to travel to Ireland. She made us feel extremely comfortable and it wasn't until we had discussed our ceremony that we felt the true excitement of whats to come! Miriam replied to our mails fast and we were always kept informed on what's next. On the wedding day just minutes before the ceremony we felt really nervous and overwhelmed but miriam had such a gentle and calming nature about her that really helped us calm down. We would recommend her in a heartbeat! Thank you so much again we will never forget her!! Sean & Tamara
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser

I am so happy that I got to share your story with your family and friends and I know that you both will continue to go from strength to strength and I too will never forget you both. May I wish you all the very best for your future together x Miriam

Our wedding was performed by the wonderful Miriam Fitzgerald who gave us a dream of a ceremony. She visited us at home months before the wedding when we went through the entire ceremony, Miriam reminding that we should have everything we wanted. After meeting her, we knew the ceremony would be gorgeous. She arrived into my hotel room, the morning of the wedding, checking to see how I was doing. After that, she met the nervous groom and then held an impromptu 'class' for all our readers etc, wanting them to feel at ease and telling them that if they were nervous, she was right there beside them. So, in fact, she was there for everyone, not just us. She even organised the children who were walking me up the aisle - her attention to detail matched my own. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you for your beautiful beautiful words you were both such a pleasure and an inspiration to work with and truly touched my heart, your wedding was indeed special because it was about you...two remarkable people who love each other and I was honoured to be able to share it so thank you for that privilege xx love and hugs to you both x Miriam
Review by
Brian an I first meet Miriam at a wedding fair ... from that day we knew who we wanted to tell our story and share our special day with our family and friends. From start to finish Miriam was along side us ... Miriam was amazing from the day we meet up for a little chat “2 hours 30 mins later “ she spoke with such ease and made us feel so at ease and she also had us crying reminding us why we loved each other and why we where getting married 23 years after we first meet ... 3 children later . Sometime you don’t say these things and it’s nice to hear . Miriam included our children in a way we and our family will never forget it’s was the most touching ceremony celebrating our love and future together. From the softest of women to the toughest of men at the ceremony spoke to Brian and I at how she drew them all into the story of our journey and how emotional it made them all feel ... Miriam’s attention to detail is exceptional her presence makes you feel at ease and you know after you meet for the first time people will talk and remember not just about the party but about the ceremony and they all did and still are ... I would highly recommend Miriam Fitzgerald to tell your story at your ceremony from start to finish she reminds you she is telling your story .. we loved every minute of it ... thanks so much Miriam xxx

Dear Bru & Steff OMG what a beautiful review I am overwhelmed by your generosity. I was so delighted to be a part of your special day and to be able to tell your story and what a story it was. The love in the room was palpable but the emotion and content was all yours. We don't often value who we are and sometimes we need to be reminded that what we have is special and what you have is so special so it was such a pleasure to share that. Thank you so much for giving me that opportunity, for allowing me to hold that space and writing such a beautiful review x xx M

We had our fabulous wedding two days ago. Miriam was amazing from the very first email to announcing us as husband and wife. When we met her she put is totally at ease.. we told her the elements that we loved and why and she took it all in and created the most beautiful ceremony to totally refelct our values and had just the right balance of seriousness and fabulousness... We really enjoyed the ceremony, it was so relaxed and fun and our guests laughed and cried happy tears and were very much apart of it all which we really wanted. Couldn't recommend Miriam enough! Amazing Lady!

The first time Ken & I met Miriam we were coming straight from work after battling Friday evening traffic and had toddler under arm. We were stressed, excited and nervous but Miriam has the ability to bring a calming warm feeling everywhere she goes. Mairiam helped out on the day in other ways too and we are delighted we picked her because she made things so easy and we didn't feel so under pressure. We would highly recommend Miriam.

We are beyond grateful that we had Miriam as our solemniser for our special day. Her calm and kind personality shone through the entire ceremony. From the day we met Miriam we knew she was going to make our day about us and include those closest to us especially our son. Our ceremony was so personal, relaxed and meaningful. Every single guest commented on how moving it all was. Miriam welcomed our family and friends and made everyone feel at home. She spoke so softly and made sure every word reached every guest. We never once felt under pressure as she was extremely organised with everything involved in the ceremony. We included our personal touches to the ceremony and Miriam then took it all into her own hands and made sure it all went smoothly. Her kind smile and calming voice helped us both with our nerves on the day. We highly recommend Spiritual Ceremonies Ireland and if you are lucky enough to get Minister Miriam Fitzgerald as your solemniser then we guarantee you your wedding ceremony will be an unforgettable one. Thank you Miriam Grace, Seán & Jake x

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Grace, Sean and Jake. I trust you had a good Christmas and peaceful New year. I was so honoured to play a part in your special day and to be able to share your story with your family and friends in such a magical location as Waterford Castle. I am so glad you enjoyed the process but the pleasure was all mine as you were such a lovely couple to work with and Jake is just adorable. Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review and for being so generous with your compliments. I do hope we get a chance to meet again in the future, until then I wish you all the very very best of luck with everything for your future. M

Miriam was an absolutely wonderful wedding celebrant. From the moment we first met it was smooth sailing & Miriam was always on hand to assist with any queries that we had. Any couples who are assigned Miriam as their celebrant are incredibly lucky!

From the very first moment we met Miriam she immediately put us both at ease and made the whole experience extremely personal. From start to finish she answered all of our queries professionally and we honestly can’t thank her enough.

From the moment we met Miriam, her warm and friendly manner won us over immediately. From the first meeting, to the moment she pronounced us man and wife, she just made things so easy and hassle-free for us. She ran us through her idea of how the day and ceremony would work, and invited us to provide our feedback and our own ideas to create our own unique ceremony. She answered all our questions in an easy manner, and provided answers to questions we didn’t know we had. In the lead up to our big day, she answered all our questions with quick and clear responses. On the day itself, she put both of us at complete ease about the ceremony, and ensured it was completely stress-free. She guided us, our bridal party and all participants and guests with clear and easy instructions, and made everyone feel comfortable at ease with their roles. Once the ceremony began, Miriam delivered in a clear and easy to follow tone. She gave a brilliant ceremony, with a touch of fun added at just the right moments. Our guests commented on how good the ceremony was, and we feel Miriamhad a huge part to play in this. She added to the day in an under-stated way, and we couldn’t imagine the day being the same without her. Miriam made everything easy in our dealings with - we honestly couldn’t recommend her more, and if anyone is looking for someone to perform the ceremony, Miriam would be the person we would advise.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much Dave and Oona and I truly believe weddings should be easy and hassle-free so I am delighted that was how things turned out I truly believe your wedding day needs to be about you and that is why it requires collaboration to enable you to create your own unique ceremony. As for answering your questions in an easy manner well that’s all part of the process. As for the day itself, it should be completely stress-free so that is always my aim and as far as providing a brilliant ceremony, with a touch of fun well that was all down to you both because it was your story I was telling and what a story it is too. Thank you both kindly for allowing me to share in your special day and allowing me to tell your story to your wedding guests and I am humbled by such a lovely review, thank you again and I wish you both a safe and pleasant christmas.

We were married on the 3rd November 2018 and our ceremony was performed by the amazing Miriam. Before I say how fab Miriam was - Spiritual Ceremonies themselves were great also. Communication was always very easy and very quick, it was one of the easiest parts of the wedding to organise. Plus we were lucky enough to get Miriam for our ceremony - when we first met Miriam it was like we had met before, there was no awkwardness and Miriam listened to everything we wanted from our ceremony and included it on the day. Our son Finn was included in everything and his favourite part of the day is to still tell everyone how Miriam married us all (Mammy, Daddy and Finn). Our guests also commented on the ceremony, how special and emotional it was and the great job that Miriam did. It was one of the best days of our lives and we are so thankful to Miriam for helping us make it one.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for your lovely comments Elaine it was a pleasure to work with you both and Finn too. Spiritual Ceremonies has always endeavored to make weddings stressless and it was very kind of you to acknowledge that also, we are a good team and aim to ensure that every couple gets a special day xx I wish you both and Finn every success for your future and I Thank you again for the lovely review and also thank you for allowing me to share your special day x M

Miriam Fitzgerald was appointed to us by Spiritual Ceremonies Ireland to officiate our wedding on November 2nd 2018 in Virginia Park Lodge, Cavan. All of the planning and preparation was seamless from our first contact with Miriam to the actual ceremony. Miriam is the ultimate professional and it is clear that the years of experience have established her as a conscientious, sincere and insightful celebrant. We really appreciated the time that Miriam took with us, to get to know us, to know about us, and to know how we felt about each other. It was with this insight that Miriam was able to make informed suggestions for our wedding, so that it be a true reflection of us, as a couple. The ceremony itself was magical and Miriam was the ultimate grounding energy that we all needed on our special day. Everyone from our parents to our wedding party were reassured as to their role and made feel appreciated for their involvement. Afterwards our guests were unbelievably complementary about the ceremony and how much thought had clearly gone in to it. What else could you ask for.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for such a lovely review and I am so happy that I got to be the one to share your story with all your loved ones because I do believe that is what generates the intimacy. You both looked so magical in the setting of Virginia Park Lodge and I am delighted that you and your guests enjoyed the day. Thank you for the lovely review and may I wish you both a very happy Christmas.

Miriam performed our wedding ceremony on 19 Oct 2018. We had previously attended our friends wedding where Miriam also performed the ceremony. We immediately knew that we wanted a Spiritualist ceremony and to our delight Miriam was assigned to us! She met with us in person halfway between Galway (home) and Meath for 3 hours (it flew!) a few months before the wedding day to go over each detail and explain the significance of each element of the ceremony. I sometimes find it difficult to put my feeling into words but it was so easy with Miriam we decided to write our own vows! They ceremony went so smoothly. One of our readers became quite emotional but Miriam supported her and read along with her until she could manage alone. We could not recommend her highly enough!
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for those kind words and it was my absolute pleasure to play a part in your special day which I believe should always reflect you both and that’s what makes it so easy as you say because it’s about you and it was no issue helping Thomas’s sister with the reading because to be fair it is a difficult thing to do and it’s good to have support which I was honoured to offer. Wishing you both the very best of everything, have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for the lovely review.

Miriam Fitzgerald celebrated our wedding on 13 October and it was such a pleasure to work with her. She is so knowledgeable in the history, literature and customs of marriage and gave us great guidance in planning our ceremony. As we hadn't been to that many spiritualist weddings before, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but Miriam gave us a really comprehensive overview of proceedings - she even took time to go through it word for word with us and gave us the opportunity to shape the ceremony so that it would reflect us as a couple. Anyone considering a spiritualist ceremony, for any occasion, would be very lucky to have Miriam as celebrant. We certainly were.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you both so much for your kind words, you were both a pleasure to work with and what an honour for me to share your story. You are such a wonderful couple and I was delighted to be play a part in your special day.

Our wedding ceremony was without doubt the best part of our day - not just in our opinion, but every wedding guest said the same! We fully attribute that to Miriam. She gave us so much reassurance about the day, always on hand to answer questions and talk us through every part of the ceremony. On the day itself she made it the relaxed, personable intimate ceremony that we wanted. She gave such a personal introduction that guests still comment on. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Miriam for helping to make this such a special and wonderful time for us.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much Ciara and Hugh for such a beautiful review and I am delighted your wedding ceremony was the best part of your day - but it should not be attributed to me but rather it should be down to the the fact that your love was seen by all present which is what a wedding should be. On the day it was telling your story in a relaxed, personable and intimate way is what creates inclusion and that is what you both deserved so I was thrilled to have the honour to do so. Thank you for allowing me that honour, may I wish you both a wonderful Christmas and thank you again for such a beautiful review.

We would like to say a huge and heartfelt ‘ThankYou’ to Miriam Fitzgerald who officiated at our Spiritual Wedding Ceremony on September 22nd 2018. Miriam did an amazing job and helped us in every way possible in a very professional yet caring way. Miriam met with us in July last year and we immediately felt confident that we had the perfect person for our Special Day. She was very thorough in explaining every step of the Ceremony and gave lots of suggestions and ideas. We both cried as she listened to our story and cried again when she sent on the first draft of our ceremony as it was so beautifully put together. Miriam is a lovely lady, very confident and strong and exactly what we needed and hoped for! We highly recommend Miriam Fitzgerald to all wedding couples planning their special day as she will make it a truly memorable experience. With much love and thanks, Ina and Marcus, Co.Kerry

Miriam married us in September 2018 and she was amazing from start to finish. We met with her a few months before and she really made sure that our ceremony would be personal and got to know us both. She also had a lot of knowledge about the backgrounds of the different types of ceremonies which helped us decide on what we wanted to do. Thank you so so much again for everything and making it so personable and relaxed.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much Leanne and Ken but remember I didn’t marry you….you married each other!!. I am glad I had the honour to perform your ceremony however and that I got to tell your story to those who are part of it in what should always be a relaxed and personal manner. Thank you for writing such a beautiful review and for allowing me to share in your special day and may I wish you both a very happy Christmas, thanks again.

Neither of us are religious, but when researching our wedding we both agreed that we wanted something other than just a ‘cold’ civil ceremony, which is what brought us to spiritualceremonies.ie We arranged to meet Miriam a number of weeks prior to our ceremony and immediately we knew we had made the right decision. Miriam immediately put us both at ease with her highly professional yet friendly manner. We had a nice informal conversation, but Miriam was taking notes and asking questions throughout in order to get a feel for what kind of people we are, the dynamics of our relationship and how the three of us could collaborate to customise and tailor the ceremony to suit what we had in mind. This was done via email whereby Miriam would send us the ceremony, word-for-word and step-by-step, and we would give feedback and then all agree on what needed to change. She walked us through all of the elements – legal things that HAD to be included, the history behind the particular ceremony we had chosen (Celtic hand-tying) and how everything would work on the day. She also gave us good advice on how we could give the people important to us a meaningful role in the ceremony. When the day arrived, Miriam had a calming effect on everyone there – she knew exactly what was going on and was able to remind everyone of their role. She spoke excellently on the day, projecting her voice with perfect pronunciation and diction that lent gravitas to the ceremony but still managed to keep everything light-hearted and fun. Afterwards, several of our guests mentioned how great she was and how well she had spoken. We can honestly say that Miriam was an integral part of our big day and not simply there to perform the ‘workmanlike’ job of marrying us. We were both delighted to write and submit this review to payback the professionalism and kindness she showed us throughout the entire process and to wish her every success in the future.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so so much for a beautiful review. I do believe that a wedding ceremony should reflect you both as a couple alongside those who are important to you hence the reason I tried to get a feel for what kind of people you were alongside how the dynamics of your relationship worked and in doing so enable you to have a customised and tailor made ceremony. I do think it’s incredibly important to include you word-for-word and step-by-step, to enable feedback and agree on all changes within the ceremony content alongside providing an overview of how things would flow on the day. As for being an integral part of your big day it was my absolute honour and privilege to be able to share your beautiful story so the pleasure was all mine and I thank you wholeheartedly for the beautiful sentiments. You looked absolutely amazing Deirdre and John looked so handsome too. Thank you both sincerely for you good wishes and may I wish you both in return every good wish possible, Have a safe and pleasant Christmas and a wonderful new year and thank you again.

We had our special day on Friday 31st of August and had Miriam Fitzgerald as our celebrant. Miriam was so lovely to deal with from the start. Although I’m Irish and got married at home, myself and my partner live in the Uk, so Miriam arranged a Skype Call so we could chat face to face. We talked through everything and it really got us excited about what was to come. On the day, My partner was grateful for how structured Miriam was, she gave such clear direction to everyone involved which was really helpful that morning. The ceremony was just beautiful, Miriam had allowed us to make any changes we wanted and the whole thing just felt so personal. None of my family or friends had attended a spiritual ceremony before, it felt so much more emotional and heartfelt to us all when comparing to others we’d all been to. Our guests were really blown away by the emotion and romance of it all which is really what we wanted to create for our ceremony. Miriam played a huge role in making that happen for us and we are eternally grateful for that. She slipped away before I could thank her in person, which is just testament to the humble person she is. Thank you so much for giving us such a perfect ceremony.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
It was my absolute pleasure to work with you both and I truly believe every couples wedding such reflect them, that was why yours was so well received, because it was about you and it really wasn’t anything to do with me but I do appreciate your kind sentiments. You looked absolutely stunning and the room decor was exquisite and when you walked in everything was just perfect, as it should be. Thank you for writing such beautiful sentiments Linda but the perfection was all you and Ashley nonetheless, I really really do appreciate it.

We got married at Saint Paul’s Church, Ballysax on August 23rd. There isn’t enough words to express how grateful we are to Miriam at Spiritual Ceremonies!! Miriam helped make our day so special and made us feel so relaxed and at ease. I have been approached numerous times by guests of all ages expressing how much they loved our ceremony, and how it was so intimate & personal. Our ceremony was everything we dreamed of and more ???? thank you ???? Leonie & Keith xx
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your special day and to tell your story in such a beautiful setting, you are such a lovely couple and just made for each other and it was my great honour to have met you both, keep smiling those beautiful smiles.

Miriams creativity, gentleness and warm spirit helped to create such a beautiful and inspiring ceremony for both myself, my husband and all attending. Our guests are still speaking of how beautifully written it was and the incredible atmosphere it created. Thank you so much Miriam you have given us wonderful memories to treasure forever, you're truly a very special person x Sam and Andrea Lyons x
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much Andrea and Sam but it was your story which created such a beautiful and inspiring ceremony for all who attended I was just lucky to be the one chosen to tell it. The incredible atmosphere was created by you and your guest not me and for that I thank you sincerely and if anyone is special it is you both. Thank your writing such beautiful sentiments and may I wish you both a safe and pleasant Christmas.

Myself and my husband were lucky enough to have had the lovely Miriam Fitzgerald officiate at our wedding on 17th August 2018 at Tinakilly House Hotel in Rathnew, Wicklow. Miriam had been recommended to us by a friend who had previously attended a wedding at which Miriam has acted as solemniser. From our first phonecall to the first time that we met face-to-face, we instantly realised that Miriam would play a key role in making our wedding ceremony very special. She brought years of experience to bear in suggesting a beautiful structure to the ceremony; expertly explaining the significance of the candle-lighting and hand-holding (hand-fastening) ceremonies that we included on the day. Miriam was kind and thoughtful in advising us how to personalise the ceremony and was calm and poised as she ran through the sequence of the wedding so that there would be no surprises. Indeed we were able to look forward to the day all the more having met with Miriam beforehand. She was kind enough to meet us a second time (not including numerous emails and phonecalls) to finalise family readings that we wanted to incorporate into the ceremony in order to make it as inclusive as possible for both our families. On the day, Miriam arrived in plenty of time and her calm air and professionalism immediately put us at ease. She interacted effortlessly with the hotel staff on logistical matters and had previously worked with the singer/harpist that we had selected for the day so that her beautiful words perfectly complimented the wonderful music. From the beginning to the end of the ceremony, Miriam set a warm and spiritual tone; her gentle demeanour lending an air of thoughtful solemnity that had ourselves and all of our guests utterly charmed and deeply touched. Having Miriam officiate at our wedding was certainly the highlight of the day. Miriam joined us afterward at our drinks reception for tea and was kind and gracious to our guests as they commented on how beautiful and emotional her ceremony was. In fact, several guests have since asked for Miriam’s details for future weddings, which we happily provided. We would heartily recommend Miriam as a solemniser for any couple who wish to celebrate their wedding in a very special way.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
I am absolutely lost for words, in fact overwhelmed by your sentiments. I knew from our very first conversation what marrying Damien would mean to you and that was reflected and reiterated in Damien’s wishes for you also and from there on in it was simply about allowing your story to shine….and what a beautiful story it is too! From there on in it was simply a matter of guiding everyone to maintain that bright light and that came ten fold when you walked in. I am forever grateful to have been able to share in that and I truly wish you every success in all your future endeavours, thank you so much for being so generous with your compliments and for taking the time to write such beautiful things. I will be forever grateful, Thank you.

We had an absolutely amazing experience in partnering with Miriam for our spiritualist wedding ceremony and making it so personal to us. Miriam is a very reassuring presence and spent quite a lot of time listening to us and encouraging us to talk about how we felt about each other and the commitment we were making. We fully trusted Miriam to create a ceremony that was meaningful, emotional and fun! Our guests were absolutely drawn in and fully engaged by Miriam's presence and words - it truly was an amazing ceremony and we still get quite emotional thinking about it. We loved Miriam's explanations of the various wedding traditions and Miriam helped us to realise and expand on our vision for the ceremony. We would highly recommend Miriam not only as a celebrant, but as a guide and mentor and reassuring presence in the nerve wracking weeks leading up to the wedding.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much D’Arcy and Maura for writing such a lovely review and I am delighted you had an amazing experience for your wedding ceremony because it was meant to be personal to you both and your guests because that is what a wedding should be. I am so pleased you found it meaningful, emotional and fun! and that it engaged your guests but that had little to do with my presence but rather by yours. It’s true I do love the history and traditions of the elements but also love expanding on them to enable couples such as yourselves to expand your vision for your ceremony because each couple is unique and therefore each ceremony different. It really was an honour working with you both and getting to tell your story and I really appreciate your lovely review. May I wish you both a safe and pleasant Christmas and thanks again for the lovely sentiments.

We were married by Miriam August this year and we couldn’t recommend Miriam any higher. From the very first email she sent us two years before our wedding she was warm, knowledgeable and professional. Miriam offered us comprehensive information on all the different types of ceremony available to us and she guided us through and personalised our choices. Miriam was very flexiable and accomodating even changing the names of the readers just before the ceremony as I had forgot to inform her of the change. Miriam went through the ceremony step by step with the wedding party prior to the wedding and one on one with us as the bride and groom putting us both as ease. Miriam is very easy to talk to. During the ceremony Miriam was extremely professional very well spoken. Our guests we so impressed with both Miriams delivery and the ceremony itself they are still commenting how lovely inclusive and personal it was.Many had never been to a spiritual union ceremony and in fact never been to a wedding held outside a church and so were blown away by both the words and the symbolism in the hand binding and the candle lighting. Miriam delivered exactly what we wanted on the day in a warm friendly professional manner and with her lovely words there was many a tear shed and a smile shared amongst our guests. Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony Miriam. Gra agus solas Lisa and Wayne Jenkins

Thank you so much for such beautiful sentiments and I am so pleased you enjoyed your special day. I don't believe weddings should be stressful but I do believe they should reflect the happy couple and their families and friends because that's what makes them memorable. Both of you were an absolute pleasure to work with and I am glad the sentiments of your ceremony were felt because they reflected you both not me and that's really what a wedding is. I thank you sincerely for writing such lovely sentiments and may I wish you both a wonderful Christmas and peaceful New year.

Thank you SO much to the wonderful Miriam Fitzgerald from Spiritual Ceremonies for being our Solemniser in Hotel Doolin for our Big Day on 23rd July 2018. Miriam, you did such an amazing job, and really took the time to get to know us. Many guests assumed you knew us a long time which we feel is such a lovely compliment to you. We were taken aback with how patient, kind and caring you were and how it didn't seem like a job to you. You were so professional throughout and despite all our changes, you made it seem like it was no problem. You calmed us beforehand, and then you went and put your whole personality into your delivery and that's what made it so unique and beautiful! You made our ceremony so personal and opened lots of people's eyes that day, and we're eternally grateful to you for that. Everything was just perfect. It was powerful! Thank you so much Miriam, love Col & Jen xxx
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for your kindness. II have always said love needs to be celebrated and that was all I aimed to do on your special day, celebrate your love with the people who know and love you both and that’s what made it special and perfect, not me but rather the fact that it is Your story, reiterated to those who are part of it. You are two truly beautiful people and make one very special couple and anyone in your company for five minutes can feel that, that’s what the world needs more. I am definitely the better of having met you and getting to meet your families too, and to be in an environment where love was palpable, what an honour and a privilege for me so thank you both in return.

We got married in Raheen House on Friday 29th June 2018. Spiritual ceremonies were an absolute pleasure to work with for our big day and could not thank Minister Miriam Fitzgerald for all she did for us.

Many thanks again to you all.

We Cannot recommend Miriam highly enough we had the pleasure of great organisation skills from her, such a professional person to deal with from the first moment we met Miriam she makes you feel at ease and emotions running high and wedding planning stress Miriam was so calm with us and made us feel like it was ok to shed a tear or two!!! She was so patient and so interested in our love story we spend hours chatting with her and we had a great laugh doing our vows with her and on the day of the ceremony she was fantastic with both of us as the nerves were kicking in she calmed us both down! She gave a amazing ceremony all my guests were talking about it weeks after the wedding that they had never been to a wedding ceremony like it and it was so us ! We were absolutely delighted we choose Miriam as our spiritualist as she will be in our memories forever and ever. Lots of love ???? ailish and ger

Thank you both for such beautiful words and for allowing me to share your love, laughter and fun with your wedding guests.

We had our ceremony in killashee hotel on 3rd june 2018 with the beautiful miriam farrell fitzgerald.where do i start? Firstly our ceremony was one of the most important parts of our day and she came highly recommended for her passion and attention to detail throughout the ceremony. She exceed all expectations! Shes a very special lady. From our first interaction it was evident she wanted to put together the ceremony we wanted. She guided myself and patrick through each step when we met and designed a personalised piece from our interactions with eachother and words we spoke about eachother (a special addition to our ceremony) On the countdown to our wedding there was numerous emails back and forth she was always helpful and full of advise. Not only did she help choose our readings but also songs to be played during our ceremony nothing was too much. On the day of our wedding it was like a good friend greating patrick and myself. When miriam speaks her voice captivates everyone and its a true talent. The ceremony was complete perfection, all our guests commented how beautiful and personalised it was. There wasnt a dry eye in the room. I would HIGHLY recommend Miriam to EVERYONE!

Aww Emma, I will so miss our chats, thank you so much for sharing such beautifully kind sentiments. I was so fortunate to share in all the exciting developments and all little secrets planned for Paddy the love of your life along with your beautiful girls. You are a force to be reckoned with and your wedding day was testament to that due to the thought and effort you put into everything and I felt so privileged to be the one who got to share that with everyone. May I wish you every success for your future because there is nothing beyond your reach when you set your mind to it and thanks again for writing the lovely review.

Miriam was always on time and professional and really put me at ease, I loved how she handles the tailoring of our ceremony, we had a time capsule at the wedding and Miriam helped incorporate that into the ceremony, even on the day of the wedding she was prepared for some unexpected changes which were handled calmly with no worry. I am very glad I had Miriam there, I was nervous on the day and Miriam was one of the first people to arrive, it was great to see her and helped get me prepared. Our guests also commented to us on how lovely the ceremony was, how well spoken Miriam was and how they felt like they were a part of the ceremony rather than just observers. Miriam's passion for her work was apparent as soon as we first met and throughout all the planing, preparation and on the day of the ceremony too, I really love seeing that in people! There is nothing I can think of that Miriam could have done better.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you Dave for those lovely words you have really been too kind. Weddings can indeed be stressful but they don’t need to be, what truly matters is that you get to marry the person you love, everything else is just extra so there is never a need to panic in my book and I am so glad everyone felt involved because they should be, they are an important part of your story when it’s shared. I do love what I do because it is never about me but rather sharing the love story of two individuals, with all those who know it and that’s always exciting. Thank you again for writing such beautiful sentiments.

There aren't enough words to be honest to describe the service we received from Miriam.From our initial meeting in the citywest hotel until our big day she had us completely at ease. A spiritualist ceremony is so much more than a wedding, it's made so personal and it's entirely about the couple. Miriam took the time to get to know us and made everything from the entrance to the vows that little bit extra special. We cannot recommend her enough. She was a joy to be around she made us laugh and cry all the while doing her job professionally and had us at complete ease both with her and each other on the day. Amazing amazing lady. Exceptional service We'd do the whole lot again in a heartbeat Best day of our lives by far Thank you Miriam for absolutely everything x x x

Myself and my husband Ger celebrated our wedding day on April 5th 2018 in Clonabreany House, Co. Meath. We were surrounded by our wonderful family and friends for a completely magical day. There are so many amazing memories from the day but the part that was the most special for us and the part that we will always cherish is our ceremony. This was made so memorable because of the kind, warm, generous and uplifting Miriam Fitzgerald. From the beginning Miriam was so generous with her time and really invested in getting to know myself and Ger. She put us at ease immediately and we were so confident we had chosen a wonderful person to guide us through our ceremony. Miriam was professional, welcoming and warm from beginning to end and if you are lucky to book her we could not recommend her presence on your special day enough. We are so grateful for the spark you brought to our day Miriam and wish you every happiness as you continue to bring joy to other people's "Happily Ever After". All our Love, Pamela and Ger xxx
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for your very kind review. Your wedding was indeed memorable but only because of You and Ger and your wonderful family and friends who really emanated their love for you both. I am so pleased you felt relaxed and enjoyed the day because that is how it should be, after all the day is about you both and your guests and that is certainly what I aim to get people to realise. I am so happy I got to be there to share in your ceremony and to tell your story and Thank you again for being so kind.

We found Miriam to be a wonderful Solemniser from the original meeting the year prior to our wedding, she captured both of our personalities perfectly and was able to extract our true feeling for each other by the carefully chosen questions. On the day she made us both feel very relaxed and calm, giving us guidance pre and post ceremony. Miriam’s performance of the ceremony was beautiful and so personal, a large number of our guests made a point of mentioning this to us throughout the day and even more in the weeks that followed. As both of our parents had never attended a Spiritulist ceremony it was important for us both that they were firstly involved and felt as ease being involved; which they did. We may require Miriam’s service for our 10th year anniversary!
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for your kind words it was my absolute pleasure to get to know you both and to be able to witness you celebrate your love for each other amongst family and friends was humbling.

Myself and my husband got married on the 23rd of March in the Glenside Hotel Drogheda. We had a wonderful celebrant Miriam Fitzgerald. From the moment we met Miriam we knew we made the right choice. Miriam put us at ease straight away. Everybody is still talking about the wedding ceremony. How personal how relaxed and just how beautiful the ceremony was. On the big day we had absolutely nothing to worry about as we knew Miriam had it all under control. One of the comments on the day was " Why did we get married so soon why didn't we wait and do the same as Brenda and Billy. " The ceremony was truly amazing. People are still talking about it. Our sincere Thanks to you Miriam for making our day so special. Thank you for all your hard work and hopefully see you in the future . Brenda and Billy xx

My wife and I got married on the 17th of March and Miriam looked after the ceremony. She was absolutely fantastic from start to finish and made us so relaxed throughout the ceremony. She introduced herself to all the families and knew them all by name which was a great touch! Our day was made that much more special for having Miriam in it. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to have this type of ceremony !!

From beginning to end Miriam was exceptional. She made the whole experience easy but actually more importantly enjoyable! The level Miriam gets to with couples is incredible. The ceremony was so personal and lovely. Not only that but we did the prep from thousands of miles away as we live in Singapore. I had the pleasure of seeing Miriam marry my Cousin so for me it was a no brainer to seek her out for our own wedding. The ceremony script she pulled together for us will stay with us forever!
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for the beautiful words Jennifer and Richard. I knew how much the day meant to you both and I was so thrilled to be able to share your wonderful story with your loved ones. You both put so much into the ceremony and that is what made it extra special, not me. I am very very fortunate to have been given that opportunity and it has provided me with some beautiful memories of the day too and I am delighted to have been able to do so. Thank you both for taking the time to write such beautiful words.

We could not recommend Miriam highly enough for her kindness, understanding & professionalism. She is a wonderful celebrant. We brought the date of our wedding forward due to a parent's illness, we were originally due to have a church wedding but with serious time constraints we had to change this. We were blessed to find Miriam as our celebrant for our day. She couldn't have been kinder in helping us to shape our ceremony & it ended up being more special & meaningful than we ever could have hoped for. There were tears but also much laughter, and Miriam was a perfect mix of informality & sincerity. Her help & reassurance in the run up to the day was invaluable to us & she was a beacon of calm on the day. We can never thank her enough x
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Aww thank you so much Peter and Lisa for allowing me the great honour to share in your very special day which despite the obvious joy was tinged with the difficulty of the grief you were carrying. However the love held in that space ensured everyone supported each other and I was so humbled to witness that despite the obvious difficulty of the situation. If I contributed in any small way to alleviating that stress I was honoured to do so and I feel forever blessed having been able to be present on your wedding day and sharing your sentiments with everyone. Thank you for your kind words and sentiments.

From the first time we met her Miriam made us feel comfortable about the day and we knew the ceremony would be very personal , relaxed and dignified. The ceremony was completely about us, our families and our friends which was exactly what we wanted. We have had many comments since from our guests about what a fantastic ceremony it was. We could not recommend Miriam highly enough.

Thank you so much Aidan and Niall for your kind words I am glad you enjoyed the day because the ceremony should always be completely about you and your families and friends which was exactly what I hoped to achieve and I am so pleased that came to pass because that is what a wedding is. Thank you both for allowing me that honour which was my great pleasure and thank you for those kind words.

All I can say is our spiritualist Miriam was absolutely amazing. She was so friendly and preformed a beautiful ceremony. Everyone mentioned how lovely she spoke. I moved in the weeks leading up to our wedding and never got a chance to meet up before hand but it was never a problem, Miriam answered every question I had over the phone or email without a bit of delay and just made me feel so relaxed that I never had to worry about that ended of my wedding day. Would highly recommend!

From the moment we met Miriam she put us ease and we both knew our ceremony would be exactly how we would like it. After our initial meeting Miriam sent us a template for the ceremony based on what we had discussed and was really helpful and encouraging in any changes we wanted to make . The ceremony was so easy going and equally beautiful , we can’t thank Miriam enough for being such an important part of an amazing day
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you Karen and Clodagh for writing such lovely sentiments and if the ceremony was so easy going and beautiful, that is because your love and personalities filled the space and so I thank you for that. You families were so beautiful and warm to liaise with and I am truly grateful for having got to spend that time with you and them in the process of creating the special day together. Thank you so much for sending the lovely words and may I wish you the very best of everything for your future.

We had miriam for our wedding and i can't praise her enough! She was so professional and friendly. She performed an amazing ceremony and made it so special for me and my husband. She made us feel so relaxed and was on hand with any questions up to the wedding. Would 1 million percent recommend her! ?
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Kym it was such a pleasure getting to know you both and you are such a beautiful couple along with your wonderful family. If the ceremony was amazing that was all down to you and Marchin and your wedding guest not me and I look forward to seeing you again in the future, Many thanks for the sending on the lovely sentiments.

We were one of the lucky ones who got to have Miriam as part of our day. From the beginning we said we didn’t want a church wedding. We wanted something more personal, something that represented us as a couple, and something that we could include our children in. And then we found Miriam! I first met her at a wedding fair and instantly felt relaxed talking to her and loved the sound of their ceremonies. We booked them the next day and by chance was assigned Miriam (much to our delight!). She was so hands on and no matter how late I emailed I always got a reply (the bulk of my organising was done when the children went to bed). The first time we met her together I saw my husband go from the quiet man that most people know him as to this chatty relaxed man who was cracking jokes. They hit it off instantly and I knew there and then we had nothing to worry about. Our ceremony was just beautiful. Intimate, relaxed, full of laughter and included not only our children but the guests too.I wouldn’t change a second of it. It was so nice to have something wrote specifically for us and about us and allowed our personalities shine through. She was so good my friend rang me a week later to ask if I minded if she requested her for her wedding :) I honestly can’t recommend her enough. A truly wonderful woman!
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Aoife thank you for the beautiful compliments. You are truly a wonderful couple and one remarkable family. It was my great honour and privilege to create something personal, something that represented you as a couple, and something that included your children because weddings are about love and family and the celebration of all of the above.I am so glad you enjoyed your special day and that it was beautiful, intimate, relaxed, full of laughter and most importantly that it included your children and your guests too and why not. As for writing something specifically for you well that was one of the highlights of the day after all you both had so much to say and I was delighted and to allow your personalities to shine through. You are truly remarkable and I wish you continued success for the years to come.

We picked Miriam, hoping she was free as we saw her at a friends ceremony and warmed to her immediately. She has such a kind and warm personality and this reflects greatly during the ceremony. Two of my guests that attended were so impressed they booked her too which speaks volumes. She not only involves the couple but their family and friends too. Miriam has great interest in you and really invests her time to create a story perfect for the ceremony when she met us. We would have no hesitation recommending Miriam. She's one in a million and it made our day. Gillian & Ewen
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much for Ewen and Gwen it was such a pleasure to work with you both and I truly believe that everyone's wedding should be personal so that's what I aim to do. I firmly believe that a wedding should tell the story of the couple including the people that matter most to them. I am overwhelmed by your generous compliment and I thank you sincerely for taking the time to write it. Hope you both have a very happy Christmas and peaceful New year.

My husband David and myself got married in February 2016 and we could not have made a better choice by having Miriam and Spiritual Ceremonies to perform our ceremony. From our 1st meeting with Miriam back in April 2015 we felt that our ceremony was going to the most special part of our day and all that we had hoped for. It turned out to be even more. Miriam made it so personal and so about us that we have a day that we will cherish forever. Nothing was a hassle or problem, we had free reign on choice of readings, songs, and the ceremony itself  touched not only us but everyone in the room that day and that was down to Miriam. We could not recommend Spiritual Ceremonies enough for ANY couple looking for a personal, special unforgettable day!   Thank you Miriam and thank you to Spiritual Ceremonies.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you so much David and Declan and what an honour for me to share that moment with you both I am so happy that you felt that your ceremony was the most special part of your day and all that you had hoped for because I myself so moved by the love in the room. A wedding is personal and so it should be about you and they are moments I will cherish forever. Nothing should be a hassle or problem, and I was delighted to be able to create the ceremony with you to reflect your choice of readings and songs, and if people were touched by that it was down to both of you not me. Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful sentiments and I truly appreciate that, wishing you both the very very best for your future.

Miriam far surpassed any expectations that we had for our ceremony content and delivery. Her way of gathering information by asking the right questions to the way in which she words the service is amazing. Our ceremony was by far our favorite part of the day and almost all of the guests commented on the intimacy, individuality and love that they felt during it. So much so that friends of ours have booked Miriam since, not to mention my mam and step dad whom she married early last year! Should we ever have another occasion where a celebrant is needed Miriam will be the only person we would consider.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Oh Gillian thank you so much and I am so happy that your ceremony was by far your favorite part of the day. The intimacy, individuality and love that was felt during it was a reflection of you both and I am thrilled that everyone understood that because that what makes your wedding day unique, your words, your thoughts and your love. It was my great honour getting to know you and your beautiful family and it was such an honour to be able to share in that feeling, I am forever grateful and thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write these lovely sentiments.

We first met Miriam in 2013 as we started to plan our wedding. Meeting Miriam for the first time was a wonderful, she is such a kind and lovely person, she was able to clearly and easily answer all our questions and advise us on areas of our ceremony. We came away from this initial meeting very much at ease and delighted that we were on the right track to arranging our ceremony. Miriam was so dedicated to us and making our ceremony special. She went above and beyond and gave so much of her time to us in the run up to the wedding. The ceremony itself was fantastic, more than we could have asked for. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed our ceremony, it was a little different, intimate and relaxed and they loved how personal it was and how Miriam had helped us to incorporate our own words and some special elements. It really couldn't have gone better. Miriam is fantastic and we couldn't recommend her more highly. And in fact we recommended Miriam to friends of ours who had Miriam as their solemiser when they married the following year.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Thank you both so much for writing in such a lovely review. It was such a great pleasure to work with you both and to be able to share your story in a personal and intimate way with the people who are part of it. Making a wedding special is simply about letting people see who you are and how much you love each other in a way that’s inclusive..at least that is what I believe, that is what creates intimacy and I was just honoured to be the one telling and sharing your story and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you for writing such a beautiful review and I wish you all a safe and pleasant Christmas.

Miriam preformed our wedding ceremony in 2013 and we could not have asked for more from her. From the start it felt like we had known her for ages. She put us at our ease and she listened to what we wanted and ensured that we had our dream wedding ceremony. It was so personal and beautiful. So when we decided to have a naming day for our daughter, of course we thought of Miriam to perform the ceremony. Even though we hadn’t seen her in 6 years from the moment we met again it was like meeting up with an old friend, smiles and hugs and chats over tea (and then on the floor to play with the baby). For both occasions Miriam made everything so personal and so about our family that it was perfect. We couldn’t recommend her more for anyone looking to make their special day unforgettable.
Response from Minister Miriam Fitzgerald - Registered Solemniser
Hi Sharron & Eamonn Thank you so much for your kind words and lovely comments. It was my absolute pleasure to work with you both for your wedding and recently for your Naming ceremony for your beautiful baby girl. You are such a beautiful family and it was such an honour to share that space with you all again and I do hope we can keep in touch. Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful things x Miriam
