I would recommend Rhona to anyone who is looking for a celebrant for their wedding ceremony. Rhona created and conducted a beautiful wedding ceremony for my husband and I. We had a couple of calls with her to discuss what we wanted and the the different options we could chose from. Rhona had very good advice and suggestions and made the process really easy and stress-free. She helped us including French elements to the wedding so that French guests felt included too. She conducted the ceremony beautifully and had set up the ceremony altar perfectly. Thank you very much Rhona!

What can I say Rhona, you were just fabulous from the time we booked you right up until the very end. You were so professional, helpful and provided us with endless information to have the most beautiful ceremony. You were warm, kind, funny and felt like part of the family. Our guests are still talking about how it was the most beautiful ceremony they were at. You were at the end of the phone whenever we needed you. Thanks so much for everything and we are honored to be your first legal ceremony also x

I would happily recommend Rhona to anyone that is looking for wedding make-up. Rhona was very accommodating and understanding when we had to change our wedding date twice during the pandemic. She was so prepared and calm on the wedding morning, doing make-up for the bride, four bridesmaids and the mother of the bride single-handedly. Despite each of the women having different requests etc., Rhona worked with each of us and we were all delighted with the results. Rhona uses very high-quality products that lasted all day and looked very well in photographs etc.
Thanks a million Rhona.

My wife and I were traveling from the US to Ireland to celebrate our 30th anniversary and I wanted to surprise her with a vow renewal. I did some research and found Rhona. Very quickly after initial contact, I was 100% convinced she was the one I wanted to perform our ceremony. I was not wrong! During the planning phase, Rhona was extremely responsive with my inquiries, she scheduled zoom calls to modify plans and offered a lot of helpful suggestions. She even took the initiative to contact our local walking tour guide the day of the event to work out a seamless "hand off" from him to her at the entrance to the park. She was keen to help me keep the surprise and it worked like magic. I will say without hesitancy that Rhona helped set the perfect stage for our epic adventure in Dublin and the rest of Ireland. My wife could not stop talking about it and how beautiful Rhona made it. I recommend her with every fiber of my being and if she is still doing this for our next milestone anniversary, I'll book her again!

I cannot recommend Rhona enough! Not only was she my celebrant but was also my makeup artist on the day as well.

Every step of the way she was so welcoming and friendly- she really made the whole process such a dream

Every part of our ceremony was so personalised to us and the entire experience was stress free

Rhona helped us to create the most wonderful personalised ceremony. It was great start to our day and her level of professionalism and her ability to speak with emotion and tell our story made it a memorable and unique experience for all. The ceremony was very important to us and it far surpassed our expectations. I would highly recommend Rhona as a celebrant she helped make our day extra special.

I could not recommend Rhona enough as a wedding celebrant. From our very first meeting with her we knew we picked the right person. Every detail that went into planning the ceremony was tailored specifically to us. We had a small ceremony of just 14 people and she brought so much love and joy into the room between us all. If you are looking for an intimate and emotional (in a good way!) ceremony look no further. We couldn?t be happier with how our day went.

Rhona did the make-up for my wedding and it looked absolutely stunning. She listened to us at the trial and did the look we wanted, getting it exactly right on the day. She is such a lovely person, friendly and with a relaxed attitude which inspired confidence. I would highly recommend Rhona for make-up on your special day - the photos will be truly fantastic with such a professional to hand. She was particularly good with make-up for an older bride, and I would definitely say go for the lashes she does which looked phenomenal.

We booked Rhona for makeup and celebrant just before the pandemic hit having met her at a wedding show. Finally we had our day after 1 postponement, Rhona was unbelievable. From the moment we met her to the morning of the wedding she was nothing but helpful. She made our ceremony so personal and all of our guests were raving about how it was just about us and our story, and also an added bit of humour. From a makeup perspective, we were flawless! I barely topped up my face other than Rhona topping me up before the ceremony and it lasted all day and into the night!
I cannot recommend Rhona enough, if you want a personalised and totally unique wedding she's your woman! Can't thank her enough she made our day so special.

I booked Rhona as my make up artist for my wedding in May this year, for myself, my mum and my five bridesmaids. The morning went so smoothly, Rhona is so professional and friendly. Rhona listened to what myself and my bridesmaids wanted and she done a brilliant job, we all looked and felt beautiful and I loved that I couldn?t feel the false eyelashes. Would definitely recommend Rhona. Thank you so much x

I booked Rhona as my make up artist for my wedding in May this year, for myself, my mum and my four bridesmaids. The morning went so smoothly, Rhona is so calm, and professional, it was a pleasure having her do the make-up. We are all 40+ (except one) and I think she was an excellent choice for this age group. The makeup didn't look heavy , it was glowy/quite natural, it was stunning, and her lashes are the nicest I've ever used. Would definitely recommend Rhona to any future brides.

Rhona made our day! From our first initial conversation to the wedding day itself her professionalism and warm approach was amazing. We were so happy and would highly recommend to friends and family. We availed of both her Celebrants and Makeup services and everyone was so happy with the results. The ceremony was so personal, fun and filled with laughter. Thanks again for making our day amazing.

Rhona is an absolute magic-maker! She's a wizard around the eyes, and my makeup didn't budge the entire day. I have never felt more stunning in my life, and I know the rest of my bridal party felt the same! Truly wish I could hire her to just pop in every morning and make me feel incredible!

I booked Rhona for make up for myself (bride), my bridesmaid and my Mam for our wedding day in July 2021, having met her and being very impressed with her, while I was bridesmaid for a friend back in July 2016.

Despite restrictions we faced in the first half of 2021 and the uncertainties affecting both suppliers and wedding couples, Rhona (along with Adrienne for our hair) still managed to arrange my Bridal Trial in the Powder Room Girls Salon in Citywest. The foundation we had gone with for the Bridal Trial didnt agree with my skin, leaving it oily within an hour. I contacted Rhona that evening and she provided assurances that my make up on the day would work out perfect.

On the day, Rhona arrived on time and between herself and Adrienne (hairstylist), they kept us all organised and on our toes for the wedding morning - I'd genuinely have been lost without them and they really added to the lovely atmosphere that morning. Wouldnt have been the same without them. My makeup worked out brilliant on the day and any worries I had about my skin just vanished.

Rhona is so easy to chat to and really makes you feel comfortable - would highly recommend her to any future bride! You cannot go wrong!!!

If you?re getting married, Rhona has to be your go to for make up. I accidentally booked the wrong date for my make up trial and completely missed it but Rhona rescheduled it without any issues. On the day, It was like having a wedding planner and videographer as well as a make up artist, It wouldn?t have gone nearly as well without Rhona. She made sure everyone was getting ready on time and helped me fix my dress and the make up was absolutely perfect and lasted all night.

Rhona is simply amazing as a person, a celebrant and make artist, She had 7 people for makeup the morning of the wedding, the bride was first to be ready and the makeup was perfect my wife loved it, said it was the best she ever had done, She prepared a ceremony that was beautiful and touching to us all, She even organised sand from Clare near Cliffs of Moher as part of our sand ceremony which is a place my wife and I really love.
Her communication was excellent from the start especially as we were arranging from Australia and we only met her on our wedding day. We highly recommend Rhona and her services she was just fantastic along with her assistant, very relaxing and friendly would put any bride at ease on the big day.
Thank you Rhona we were delighted with everything.

We got married on 21-12 last year and Rhona came to our venue in Waterford Castle to take care of the bridal party?s makeup. Wow what a fabulous job she did, I really cannot recommend her enough. She was early (no stress there), calming, good-humoured, full of really helpful advice and professional and just so amazingly talented and skillful at what she does. When I show photos of the day, everyone comments on my beautiful makeup and my bridesmaids. Rhona is worth every penny and such great value for money. Aideen

Everything about Rhona and her work as our celebrant was absolutely next level!! We not only gave her an impossible task of liaising from the other side of the globe, we done it all in two weeks! Rhona went above and beyond to make sure our magical day, including the bride was perfect! Rhona was personal and professional doing in her research for the ceremony getting to know us both and including lyrics from our favourite bands. I would recommend Rhona and her services to anyone looking to be treated with the personal touch that Rhona provides in her business

I chose Rhona to be our makeup artist as she had been the makeup artist of 4 of my friends previously. I could not say enough kind things about Rhona. She is fantastically relaxed and easy going. Nothing is too much to ask. She made our morning very easy! 5 adults and 4 little girls to cater for and she did it with such ease that we all enjoyed our experience and felt absolutely amazing after. Her makeup style (that I have admired for years) is very natural while also being stunningly beautiful. The kids felt like absolute princesses and glowed with happiness after she was finished with them. My makeup was exactly what I had imagined but not only that but it lasted me perfectly for two days! Rhona is very responsive to email and also text. Her friendly manner and chatty nature make the whole experience such a pleasure. Delighted she was available for my big day. Would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything Rhona.

Rhona is just super. We, the bridal party, had somewhat different wants for our makeup, and Rhona did such a lovely job with every single one of us, including my mother who shone on the day. I have rarely felt so beautiful in my life. In fact I have since bought many of the products used to try and recreate the look! Thank you for not just your glorious skills in makeup artistry Rhona, but also for your kindness and calming effect on such a special day.
