So glad there are 10 stars for review because Pat deserves every single one of those stars. We were so lucky to have Pat as our wedding celebrant! Two weeks on from our wedding, our guests are still raving about how fun and relaxed the ceremony was. Pat struck the perfect balance between joyful and lighthearted while also honoring the importance of our commitment.

From the very beginning, Pat was incredibly helpful and communicative, answering all of our questions. He went above and beyond, even livestreaming and recording our ceremony so loved ones could share in our day. We especially loved the selfie we snapped with him after – such a fun memento!

If you’re looking for a celebrant who can create a truly personal and unforgettable ceremony, we cannot recommend Pat highly enough.

We were delighted to have Pat involved in our big day! He was so professional in the run up to the wedding, giving us a great feel for how the ceremony would flow and tailoring our ceremony to make it personal to us. He arrived early on the day and it was great to chat ahead of the ceremony to calm the nerves. We received such positive feedback from our guests about Pat’s delivery, an excellent mix of care and humour. You can really tell that he loves what he does and this was really important to us. Thank you so much, Pat!

Pat was absolutely fantastic! His professionalism, sense of humour and warmth put us at ease from the very beginning and this really shone through on the day. So many of our guests raved about the ceremony and commented on how wonderful he was. He gave us so much advice and provided loads of information that helped us create a ceremony that was special to us and we loved every single second of it. He's such a genuine, lovely man and we couldn't recommend him enough!

Pat was very relaxed and efficient which created a great atmosphere. We wanted an informal atmosphere and we got exactly what we'd hoped for. He was pleasant to deal with in the run up to the wedding and guests were complimenting his manner on the day. We liked that he was flexible depending on the weather and other matters that could only be decided on the day.

Pat made our wedding so incredibly special. He worked with us to create a ceremony that really reflected our relationship. As we are based in England this was all the more impressive. Pat was very flexible on when we could hold zoom meetings and answered all of our questions. A massive added bonus was that Pat made a video of our ceremony that we can share with people that could not be there on the day (a live stream was also available) We couldn't recommend Pat more highly!

Hi Pat

We want to sincerely thank you for the absolutely wonderful job you did for our wedding on Saturday. We totally enjoyed the ceremony because even though we were anxious you made us all feel relaxed, as you were totally in control of the situation and knew exactly what you were doing. Everyone said you were brilliant with the exact amount of humour and professionalism need to put us all at ease.
We had the most wonderful day and you were a big part of it, so we won't ever forget you or our beautiful wedding ceremony.

Kindest regards,
Jackie and Kieran O'Dwyer

Where do I even begin with Pat? From the moment we met on Zoom (we live in Liverpool), we knew that we had to pick Pat. His charismatic nature makes him a joy to be around and he instantly puts you at ease, feeling as if you're all lifelong friends.
Once we had booked, Pat was always really responsive and quick to answer any questions we had throughout the planning process. We met on Zoom since our original meeting to discuss everything and again, we always felt at ease.
Of course, this was no different on the day of the wedding itself. He was so calm and reassuring that we didn't feel any pressure or nerves on the day. Our day was catered to exactly who we are as a couple and we were able to have fun with it.
Furthermore, Pat set up a Zoom link (we love zoom!) for our family and friends that couldn't make the journey to the wedding for various reasons. This allowed us to have them part of our day, even from New Zealand. He also downloaded the footage for us and provided us with a personal link to watch it whenever we want, and to share with family and friends.
We are so lucky that we stumbled across Pat because we really couldn't have asked for more from him. We are so grateful that he could be part of our day and help us to make so many happy memories. You're incredible, Pat!

I could not have been happier in having Pat be our celebrant for our recent wedding. From the start he was so friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He made us feel so at ease and explained everything to us, we felt absolutely clueless before speaking to him, but he made everything so easy for us. We met him over zoom to chat through the ceremony, he helped us with things we hadn't even thought about and was able to suggest lots of fun things we could add. He even took care of playing the music throughout our ceremony which was a huge help to us! I was thrilled to have Pat with us that day, an absolute gem. Thank you so much Pat!

Pat was amazing to work with. From the minute we contacted him to see about his availability to be our wedding celebrant/solemniser he couldn?t have been more helpful. He was friendly and professional, and had everything under control, which really made us feel at ease on the build up to our wedding, as well as for the wedding ceremony itself. It?s easy to see Pat has years of experience at this and that he loves what he does. Several of our guests commented how at ease Pat made them feel too. He was professional but still personable, funny and charming throughout the ceremony. He listens to what you want and incorporates personal touches about you as a couple throughout, which I think is what made all of our guests rave about the humanist ceremony, and made the ceremony so special to us as a couple. We can?t recommend Pat more highly! He?s amazing! If you?re looking for a celebrant for your wedding, look no further than Pat. Thanks a million again for everything Pat!

Pat is an absolute gentleman. We had the good fortune of knowing Pat already and always knew we'd want him as our Celebrant once we got engaged.

Pat has an excellent website with loads of ceremony templates to browse through. We went through the ceremony with him over zoom and he sent back a copy for us to review and edit. On the day he was calmness personified in the face of an onslaught from our toddler! He rolled with it and gave a very personable ceremony.

Pat also live streamed the ceremony and had an edited recording based off three cameras he had set up in our inbox 48hours later.

Pat made our intimate ceremony so special. He took time to video call us before the big day and make sure he had a list of everything we hoped to include. His attention to detail was fantastic and he made everybody feel so relaxed. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how whitty Pat was.
Pat was also kind enough to video the ceremony for us, as we had no videographer, and sent us a link to share with family who could not attend.
We definitely recommend booking Pat!

Pat was amazing at helping us plan and performing the wedding ceremony. He allowed us to have complete flexibility with the ceremony and there was the amazing advantage that he will record or livestream the ceremony for you at no extra cost. He was also really organised and we got to use the handfasting ribbons from his own wedding so we didn?t have to get our own! We were worried about the weather in advance of the day and he had no problem with us potentially changing the time of the wedding at last minute to take advantage of any potential dry spells for photos - thankfully we didn?t need to do this!

For our wedding we had the joy of having Pat Clarke-Browne as our humanist celebrant. Rewind back to when we were trying to arrange everything & I felt a bit lost as it can be quite overwhelming when you start looking into booking everything that goes with a wedding. Pat from the 1st time we spoke was very down to earth, genuinely helpful, full of knowledge & just a nice person and was why we decided that he would be the perfect person for our wedding ceremony. Nothing was too much trouble. He was there in plenty of time & was set up before I even got there, He included all of our family in the ceremony which was so important to us and especially our 2 young girls who he made feel very much involved. It was a beautiful ceremony which was so relaxed and at times (at precisely the right times) very funny (?,) Our family said they have never heard or seen a ceremony like it before and thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony. It was just perfect & included everything that we wanted as part of our special day. We can?t thank you enough! Thank you for everything Pat (?,)

It is hard to fully put into words what having Pat Clarke Browne officiate at our wedding has meant to us. From the outset he was warm, friendly, genuine and so helpful. He has some great ideas and he adds the nicest little touches. He really does think of everything! Our ceremony was beautiful, so intimate and personal. Everyone remarked on how he is able to put everyone at ease. He is great fun to be around and we really appreciated his skills with technology- Pat looked after our music, live streamed our wedding for friends and family and sent us the most beautiful video that really captured the essence of the day.

Pat was able to provide all of what we needed as a videographer photographer and celebrant we couldn?t believe our luck.. his patience and kindness on our wedding day gave us such relief and calm just what we needed. Such a pleasure to deal with with quick replies to any questions we might have,nothing was ever a problem! we couldn?t recommend pat enough it felt like he was part of the family that we knew him for years!

Where to start! Pat absolutely made our wedding day. He was so effortless to deal with in the run up to the wedding day itself. We met Pat via zoom in advance of the day to run through the ceremony and Pat gave us plenty of options for how our ceremony could be tailored to the way we would like it to be.

On the wedding day itself he was an absolute professional while being bubbly, friendly and personable to us and all our guests. A good few guests actually told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony, it felt very personal, warm and light hearted which is exactly what we wanted. He is an amazing celebrant and goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly. Pat also gave us the option of setting up a Zoom service at no extra charge for those who couldn't be there and he provided a really lovely recording of the ceremony itself (again at no extra cost) for us to keep which we absolutely love having.

Our day was made all the more special for Pat having married us and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Humanist Celebrant. Thanks for everything Pat! Carol & Shane

From the moment we met pat we knew we wanted him to marry us. He is professional, fun and he enjoys his job you can see that in his work. Due to covid we had to change our date and again pat was so helpful and it was stress free. The lead up to the wedding pat covers everything you mite need for your ceremony we wanted to include our children and this was so easy to do. Due to covid our numbers were down and we weren't aloud live music, but pat offered to live stream or record our ceremony and he did our playlist for us so we didn't even have have to worry about music. This just shows you pat will go the extra mile for you to make your day special and stress free. We are so grateful to pat for making our day so special and fun. Booking pat was honestly the best thing we did.

Dealing with Pat took away any added stresses about the big day as everything was put at ease as soon as soon as you talk to him. Provided great level of comfort about how exactly the ceremony would go and also with Covid restrictions and no live music allowed he stepped in seamlessly managing the playlist for the ceremony. He provides plenty of great ideas for different options to make your day a little more unique and his delivery of the ceremony itself was perfect and we had great feedback from our guests. The added perk of the video of the ceremony which he did for free with 3 cams set up around the room and then edited together was also really special and generous!

So glad we choose Pat as our celebrant/solemniser. We would definitely recommend him. He is very personable and professional. All our guests commented on how good he was. He allowed us to make our ceremony as personal as we liked, including a fire ceremony. He also provided a Zoom service for those who couldn't be here and saved it as a video for us to keep which was a lovely gesture as he didn't charge extra for it. Plus because he is a solemniser he can legally marry you wherever you like which is also a bonus.

Pat was a fantastic celebrant for our wedding ceremony. Despite the stress of the pandemic, he remained calm and upbeat throughout. He was very helpful and always at the end of the phone or an email if we needed anything or wanted advice. He also provided a recording and streaming service as we could only have 6 guests to the ceremony; and this way, we were able to share our day with family and friends around the world. All our virtual guests commented on how professional the streaming was and how nice it was that they could be a part of the day. We would highly recommend Pat as a celebrant for anyone who is getting married and wants a Humanist ceremony.

Absolutely incredible effort by Pat. Wonderful celebrant for my sister. So very approachable, friendly and professional. With covid ongoing, he nonetheless smoothly conducted the ceremony, had video set up, played the music and took photos! Incredible

Pat was wonderful! Helpful,kind, thoughtful, great sense of humour and always came back to us so fast if we had any questions. He really made the day extra extra special not only with the beautiful ceremony but with photos,a video recording of the ceremony and music too - all so personal for us!! We couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thanks again Pat for helping us create such a memorable day.

Pat thank you so much for the recording. We went back to work on Sunday and it was a horrible cold,hard smack back to reality, watching your video on Monday night was the highlight of our week and brought all of the magic back to us.

The day was surreal and I felt a little overwhelmed, there were loads of details that went over my head,so watching the ceremony back was epic, as I could relive the day again and actually take everything in properly.

Thank you for swooping in last minute and saving our day...helping to make it special and officially making us Mrs and Mr.

We cant thank or recommend you highly enough.

All the best,
A&A
Response from Pat Clarke-Browne Humanist Celebrant and Solemniser
Thanks Anna and Aaron. I am so happy to offer couples the option of looking back on their ceremony afterwards I know its not the full Wedding video experience but it lets you see some of the things you may have missed on the day or to pass on to those who could not be there. It was a lovely Christmassy wedding at the Maryborough. Pat

We had our wedding day on 6 November 2020. To say this has been a stressful year of wedding planning would be an understatement. We made so many changes over the months leading up to the wedding it was nerve wracking. However, the one aspect that neither of us had any doubts about from day 1 was having Pat as our Celebrant. From the very first zoom meeting right up until our day, Pat was there for us in more ways than we could have ever expected. Further, when it came to the wedding day, everyone said it was genuinely one of the nicest ceremonies they have ever been at and they truly loved how much it was all about love.?


Everyone had amazing things to say about Pat. They said he was warm and welcoming and that he really made everyone feel at ease (which is especially amazing given the year we've all had). They loved the atmosphere that Pat created from start to finish and we did too.?


Coming from a traditional Catholic background, we had never been to a humanist ceremony before our own and so we weren't 100% sure what to expect, but Pat made it easy for us to enjoy every little moment. For that we cannot thank him enough. Pat was also beyond kind enough to Zoom our wedding to many of our family and friends who could not make it in person. It was incredibly thoughtful of Pat and I know that it meant the world to those who could still share the day with us in some way because of Pat's innovation.

We can honestly say that our Wedding day was all the more special for Pat having married us and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Humanist Celebrant.

Aisling & Philip.

Hi Aisling and Philip, It was a pleasure to work with you helping to make your day as special as it should be. I am delighted that those who could not make it also got to enjoy your day with you. It's a special bonus to be able to use your other skills to help couples and my years as a Wedding Photographer and working in video allows me to help in these trying circumstances. It's so rewarding to hear back from couples like yourself and makes the whole thing even more worthwile.
Pat.

We were lucky enough to have Pat as our celebrant for our wedding in Dingle, and was a dream to work with. He guided us through all aspects of the planning, from the legal side right down to the wording and order of the ceremony. He helped us to build a ceremony that reflected our values and was wonderfully personal. Highly recommended!
Response from Pat Clarke-Browne Humanist Celebrant and Solemniser
Hi Michelle & Dom, Thanks for your kind words one of the bonuses in this job is getting to go to great locations like yours and be part of a couples big day.
Thanks again.

Pat has been a personal friend for many years, so we knew we wanted him to officiate at our wedding. We also wanted the ceremony to be legal on the day so that our wedding day was really our wedding.
He is a natural celebrant, relaxed and efficient while maintaining his normal fun personality. He made sure to be inclusive of our guests who were expecting a more traditional wedding and provided exactly the ceremony that we wanted to celebrate our special day.
He?s busy, if you can get him for your special day, you should.

We were so happy with the service that Pat provided, not just on the day its self but in sorting out the music and showing us how the day would run. He was a very calming influence and very warm and friendly through the ceremony. Would love to be doing it again and would definitely still have to have Pat with us.
