Have a wedding ceremony that is Memorable and Meaningful with YOU at the centre.

Saying "I do" are probably the most important words you will say in your life! Have your wedding ceremony a beautiful tapestry which will be the centre piece of your special day.

As a HSE Registered Solemniser, I can legally marry you, on the day and venue of your choice. As One Spirit Interfaith minister, my ceremonies are inclusive of all cultures, gender orientation, all faith paths and none.

Would you like a Celtic theme, rituals like Hand Fasting, Stone or Sand Ceremony, Remembrance of the Ancestors, Wine Box Ceremony, to include as many family and friends as you wish?  With rich resources to choose from, I will create a bespoke, stress free, personal ceremony, unique to you. Your options are many. You will have the ceremony that best reflects you and your partner's wishes. I bring a richness of experience and empathy to my role as your Celebrant.

Take the stress out of the planning and know that you are "in a safe pair of hands." I will guide you through the process of creating a ceremony, written just for you, that expresses your love and commitment in a unique, personalised and meaningful way. Whether you want a less traditional, fun, spiritual ceremony it will be crafted for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I offer a free telephone consultation in the first instance and will be delighted to talk and guide you through the various options that best reflect you and your partner's values.


Look no further, Margaret from start to finish was so helpful, professional and connected to our needs.  She came up with great ideas for the ceremony and all the wedding guests felt it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had attended. Always available and responsive, I highly recommend here services... you will not be disappointed.

 We wanted to have a non-religious ceremony with friends and family from disparate traditions. Margaret was the person we turned to in helping us plan and officiate on our special day. She had some wonderful suggestions around structuring our ceremony and had ideas that we weaved in, including a hand-fasting. We could not have had a better person to officiate: she was so calm, engaged and engaging. Every one of our guests felt that they were party to a unique event and many commented on how Margaret facilitated the co-construction of a celebration which spoke of our cultural heritage, Irish and Pakistani, which south to find common ground. She brought a sense of calm, spirituality and unity amongst us all and these memories will be cherished throughout our lives. Haaris and Lorraine

When we approached Margaret we had no idea what kind of ceremony we wanted except that we wanted to be married at Christmas! Over a number of meetings and emails our ceremony evolved. It was a reflection of us both – our love of family, travel, our love of nature, football.  Our wedding ceremony is something none of us will ever forget. The Handfasting, (tying of the knot by my mother), the Stone ceremony (stones blessed by our guests and gathered and brought to the hearth by our niece, the Remembering poem spoken by a Grandmother, we could go on. Each piece of our unique ceremony was beautifully woven together by Margaret into the perfect ceremony.  We are eternally grateful to her for giving us the best of memories. Thank you. Lauren and Simon

Margaret guided us and helped us to create the perfect ceremony suited to us and our children. We both felt at ease with Margaret from the beginning her warmth and kindness meant a lot to us. I would highly recommend Margaret as she has some beautiful suggestions and is always very responsive if you have any questions. The ceremony couldn't have gone any better as many of our guests remarked on.Thanks again Nicola and Darragh Duggan.

We were really happy to have Margaret to do our wedding cermony. She listened to what we wanted and offered some really lovely ideas to make our simple wedding special. Always quick to respond to any questions we had about the cermony. She made us feel relaxed both before hand and on the day. We would highly recommend Margaret!

Margaret was exactly what we were looking for. From the first time we met, she put us at ease. She guided us to create the perfect ceremony and helped us to ensure that our ceremony reflected who we were as a couple and included our children. It was beautiful. Honestly, we could not recommend Margaret enough. Margaret is a dream to deal with. Thank you Sara & Alan xx
Response from Reverend Margaret Roche - Registered Solemniser
Dear Sara and Alan. Thank you so much for posting your kind and generous review. It was a pleasure to co-create your ceremony and the inclusion of your beautiful children was very special. "Christmas the Season to be Married" was a magical theme. Wishing you many, many, wonderful Christmases (and all other seasons!) together. Thank you for asking me to be your Celebrant.

We had a small wedding in September in the Iveagh Gardens Hotel in Dublin. Margaret was absolutely brilliant in helping us work through how the Ceremony should be structured and had lovely ideas for the proceedings, potential readings, placement of music etc which really helped us as we had no idea where to start. We had a few calls with Margaret and then met in person to talk through how it would all work in practice. Margaret was so organised and reassuring as we were both quite nervous but we knew we were in safe hands. Our guests all commented that it was the nicest Ceremony they had ever attended and how lovely, kind, and calm Margaret was. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Margaret and I would highly recommend her to add that special touch to your special day
Response from Reverend Margaret Roche - Registered Solemniser

It is very generous of you to say your guests "commented it was the nicest Ceremony they had ever attended...." (that gives me a warm feeling - thank you). Thank you for asking me to be your Celebrant. Wishing you every happiness together.

We were lucky enough to have Margaret marry us in September 2021, after a chaotic two years of postponements and rearrangements due to covid and family illness. Through every uncertainty, Margaret was a constant, steady source of reassurance, calmness and understanding, who went out of her way to accommodate us. It's hard to express just how grateful for that we are. For the ceremony, we wanted something relaxed and comfortable, without any of the stiff formalities found in more traditional ceremonies. From the outset, Margaret helped us mold our ceremony into something that was personal, intimate and inclusive of our families and friends. She came up with perfect suggestions for our readings and provided lots of ideas and choice about what we could do throughout the ceremony to give it the feel we were looking for. Most importantly to us, Margaret allowed our ceremony to have humor- we were able to laugh our way out of the nerves and enjoy ourselves completely. If you want someone who will always strive to give your wedding a personal touch, who is reliable, responsive and listens, you honestly can't go wrong with Margaret. We couldn't recommend her enough.

Dear Cat and Charlie. Thank you so much for posting such a kind and generous review. I am very grateful to you both. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know you over the time we shared. The photos of your ceremony are testament to the joyful occasion it was. You are the picture of happiness in every one. It was an honour for me to co-create the ceremony you both wanted. Thank you for asking me and heartfelt thanks for your wonderful review. Margaret

Planning a wedding during Covid-19 maybe wasn't the easiest time, but there was one constant in our planning that gave us both a great sense of calm and serenity, and that was Margaret. Thorough, Kind and Enchanting. From the offset, Margaret shown a deep understanding of planning and creating a unique and personal ceremony. Always available and prompt to reply I would not hesitate to recommend Margaret to anyone. We are incredibly grateful for all she has done for us and are delighted to have had her part of our special day as well.

In a very stressful turn of events my husband and I found ourselves in the position of needing a new registrar a few days before our wedding due to new Covid-19 restrictions. What could have been a very trying time was quickly turned around when Margaret came to our rescue and agreed to do our ceremony. From our first call with her she was very calming, kind and professional. She quickly made us feel reassured and was able to tell us everything we needed to know to help us organise all of the legal bits. On the day she delivered the ceremony beautifully, making it feel special for us while also keeping our guests engaged. I couldn't recommend Margaret more, and thank you very much for everything you did to help us in our time of need! Thanks again, Margaret

Margaret was the perfect celebrant for us. We cannot recommend her more highly. Even in the weeks and months before the big event, she was a calming and assured presence. Knowing that we were in a safe pair of hands actually took a huge amount of the stress out of the planning process. My partner and I wanted an alternative experience to the standard church wedding as we are not very religious. We wanted a warm, intimate ceremony devoid of stuffiness and biblical references. Margaret helped us craft our own personalised script. We found her templates gave us a good starting point and we added our own content under her guidance. This allowed us to involve family and friends in the day which made it so special. Throughout the ceremony itself, she spoke eloquently and had the right balance of solemnity and humour. While we wanted everyone present to have fun, we also didn’t want it to turn into a party too soon. It’s an important life event and Margaret marked the occasion really well. I actually expected to be more nervous on the day but knowing that we had a good plan in place allowed us both to relax and enjoy it. A couple of our guests actually booked her since our wedding.
