Firstly, if you are looking at my profile it probably means you are getting married or seriously considering it, so congratulations! I am a team member of Spiritual Ceremonies, who have been privileged to have worked with couples from all over the world since 2010, as they planned and enjoyed their wedding ceremony here in Ireland. I travel all over the country, seven days a week to help make a couple’s wedding ceremony a personal, special event that they, and their family and friends, will remember.

I am a Registered Solemniser so your ceremony will a legally-binding one as well as being one that reflects you both as a couple. You can incorporate many different elements into the ceremony to make it unique and different and if you wish to incorporate elements from any faith in the form of prayers, readings or hymns then I would love for you to do that. The ceremony should be entirely about you both and your lives together. Marriage is wonderful, messy and the most amazing journey and all of that should be represented in your marriage ceremony.

Once a couple books with me then I am available to guide them through the process of registering with the HSE and I am always there to help in any way I can. I meet with couples in the months running up to their ceremony to understand their wishes for the ceremony and find out more about them in order to personalise everything as much as possible. On the day I am always there to keep things calm and relaxed and ensure that everyone enjoys the wedding ceremony and has wonderful memories from it.

Please message me if you have any questions or if you want to chat to me about any of the above. Below you will find some links that you may find useful.

Happy planning!

Tara was an amazing celebrant. In the build up to our wedding she was on hand to go through every step with us. We live in Australia so it was difficult for us to organise everything from so far away. The one element we knew we didn't have to worry about was the celebrant. We had numerous emails and lengthy phone calls with Tara and she really put us at ease. She took notes on everything about me and my new wife and then compiled an amazing ceremony tailored to us. She had us down to a tee. It gave our guests an insight into our relationship as it delveloped up to the point where we were all gathered for our wedding, thanks to Tara. On the day she spoke beautifully that everyone could hear as we were in an outdoor area with no microphones. I would recommend Tara to anyone who wants to have an amazing person who genuinely cares and delivers the ceremony as if she is part of your family or guest list. It was the next best thing to having a family member deliver the ceremony

Tara Carroll was our celebrant for our wedding but left as our friend. She was so professional and personable and really supported us on the day. Tara worked with us to write a beautiful ceremony. Tara was a friendly face to see on the day and really calmed our nerves, going above and beyond even holding my tissue for the hand binding. We would recommend her for any wedding, a beautiful person

We chose Spiritual Ceremonies to perform our ceremony, and we couldn't be more happy with our choice. Tara Carroll was our solemnizer, and she was wonderful to work with from the first email communication through the ceremony. Tara provided support, encouragement and suggestions, yet allowed us to completely customize our ceremony. Our guests commented on how intimate, unique and special our wedding was, and said it was the best wedding they had attended. We are very happy we made the choice to use Spiritual Ceremonies, and we highly recommend Tara Carroll in particular.

Where do I begin. From the first moment I contacted Spiritual Ceremonies they were fantastic. They put me in touch with our Solemniser Tara Carroll. From the first moment I spoke to Tara I knew quite simply she was the one for us. Warmth and love simply radiated from her. We met up with Tara and she was simply a joy to be around. I loved everything she suggested and when our draft came through I literally jumped for joy. Not only that but she we felt she was genuinely interested in us, our story and our little boy loved her which was most important for me. Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and also how personal it was and it all came from Tara. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I can never ever thank her enough for giving us the ceremony of dreams. I couldn’t recommend both Tara and Spiritual Ceremonies enough xxxx

Tara helped us celebrate our wedding, we had such a fantastic day and the ceremony was such a central part of it. It was such a magical day - we would love to do it all again!! So many of our guests commented on our ceremony about how much they loved it and how personal it was. Tara helped share our story! Our guests were singing Tara's praises and for many it was their first spiritual ceremony and they thoroughly enjoyed it! Tara made time to speak with both of us before the ceremony it put us both at ease! Also from the very first contact Tara was really responsive and informative about the whole process, would definitely recommend.

Where do I begin to describe this wonderful lady! From the first moment we met to discuss our ceremony I got a lovely warm feeling from Tara; she gave us such wonderful ideas to add to our ceremony; she went above and beyond her role as celebrant on the day - checking in with both myself and my groom steadying our nerves. Our guests commented on how she held their attention throughout the ceremony. I couldn't of asked for a more professional lovely down to earth person and for that we are grateful!

We can’t Thank Spiritual ceremonies enough. Tara Carroll was amazing. She helped in every way possible. We planned a destination wedding from the States and she kept in contact with us from the start to end. She helped us plan and reminded us of important details along the way. Our ceremony was beautifully written and customized to us. She conducted our ceremony and it was our dream fulfilled. Thank You so much Tara!

After originally requesting someone else for our wedding, Tara was appointed to us, much to my disappointment as we had heard great things about someone else from spiritual Ceremonies. HOW WRONG I WAS to feel disappointed, Tara was amazing. Nearly every single one of our guests complemented the ceremony, comments like “that was the best wedding ceremony I have ever been at” and “the service was so personal, I have never been at a better ceremony”. We wanted our personalities reflected in our ceremony and Tara came in strong with that. Absolutely fantastic.

It’s hard to express how grateful we are to Tara for making the ceremony one of the highlights of our wedding day. It was such a stress free, enjoyable experience. She was so calm, positive and encouraging at every stage - particularly when myself and my brother forgot to bring the rings to the venue :) Tara created a unique wedding ceremony for us, specifically written in a way to bring our two cultures together. It included 2 Celtic traditions of Unity candle and Hand binding and 2 Indian traditions of 'Aarti' (welcoming the groom’s family into the bride’s family) and Varmala. The feedback from our guests has been so positive. Thank you so much Tara for helping make our wedding day the happiest of our lives.

Tara Carroll married us at Borris House in August this year but her work didn't start there. Tara worked with us (over the phone from Australia!) in the months leading up to our wedding to help us create a beautiful personalised ceremony. Tara gave us tons of options and talked us through each one until we finally had the ceremony structure we wanted. The ceremony was one of the best parts of the day and all our guests complimented us on how unique and beautiful it was. Tara explained how everything worked from the beginning and made us feel so at ease and calm about the whole thing. I couldn't recommend Spiritual Ceremonies and Tara enough.

Our wedding celebrant was Tara Carroll. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant to marry us! From the moment we met with Tara, we knew we got the right person. She was the most helpful and very informative. She guided us through the many options we have for our wedding and aid us when we were in doubt. As for the wedding day itself, Tara was well prepared and had everything under control. Cause we were rather nervous, as anyone would! Tara made sure we felt comfortable and no need to be stressed. Thanks to her, the wedding went smoothly and we had a fantastic time! For the final note we totally recommend using spiritual ceremony.

My wife and myself discovered the spiritual ceremonies looking for an alternative to mainstream religious mariage, and we loved it! The romantic and true meaning of this beautiful ceremony inspired by Celtic tradition made our wedding very special. Tara Carroll, our celebrant, was very friendly and open and created a ceremony telling our own love story. On the big day, she handled everything brilliantly and performed a memorable wedding full of emotions! Our families are still talking about it.

When my husband and I decided to get married in Ireland (we live in Australia) we were so delighted with the service we received from Spiritual Ceremonies, especially our celebrant Tara Carroll. Planning a wedding from overseas can be quite a daunting task, however with Tara guiding us through the process it was a very enjoyable experience and we knew we were in good hands. We wanted our ceremony to be light-hearted and fun and also contain some traditional elements such as hand fastening and Tara wrote and delivered the perfect ceremony for us. So many of our family and friends have commented on how personal the ceremony was and how it reflected both our personalities. We were very lucky to have Tara dedicated to us and can't thank you enough! Shannon & Josh

Tara Carroll performed our ceremony at Lough Rynn Castle on 12th May 2018. I can't recommend her enough. She was so personable and warm and as she guided us through the process of developing our ceremony we were confident we were in great hands. It was the perfect mix of religious and non-regligious. Everyone loved how personal our ceremony was and during the ceremony Tara guided us calmly through each step. It was a perfect experience. You've won the lottery if you have Tara at your wedding!

Tara Carroll was our celebrant for our wedding in April and we couldn't thank her enough for providing such a relaxed, meaningful, memorable service for us. She made the whole process so easy, from our first meeting, to organising our ceremony and right the way through to the "I do's". Thank you Tara!

We got married a month ago in Kiltimagh and Tara Carroll was our celebrant. she was so lovely when we met with her and we felt straight away that she was definitely the one to marry us. she made us feel so at easy and made a nervous unknown experience feel exciting and calm. she emailed draft of our ceremony to us and allowed for changes. On our wedding day she handled us giddy fools (bags of nerves) like a professional and gave us a ceremony that had quite a few guests crying. I can't recommend her enough.

Myself & Derek got married on the 8th December 2017, celebrant Tara Carroll married us and I honestly can’t recommend this type of ceremony enough, from the moment we met Tara and went through the layout and options of the ceremony it was so comfortable and relaxed.. Tara was so great, people from the wedding are still talking about her and her approach to the ceremony.. my wedding singer told me afterwards she has been to a lot of wedding ceremonies and Tara was honestly the best she had ever seen! We didn’t know much about spiritual ceremonies starting out, everything was just so easy with them from booking, payments, any queries or worries that you might have! Great service for your special day!
