So you are getting married in Ireland? Congratulations! Would you like a truly unique & personalised ceremony, custom designed to your own wishes?

It’s no mistake that you are reading this right now.  No matter if you’d like a straightforward ceremony, created to your exact wishes, but meaningful and without all the fuss, or that fairytale wedding ceremony with all the enchantment and magic, I will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your ceremony exceeds your expectations.

With over 30 years experience in the art of ceremony, both in my homeland Australia and many years here in Ireland, I know how to listen carefully to your requirements, and I understand what you want.  I will help you to make your ceremony dreams a reality! 

In addition to this, I am backed up by a nationwide ceremony officiant network, giving you complete peace of mind and a 100% ceremony guarantee, knowing that in the event of unforeseen circumstances, with me as your officiant, your ceremony is always in good hands.

What About the Legal bits?

If you’d like a real, legal marriage ceremony that’s no problem at all.    I am a Registered Solemniser of Marriages and fully authorised to solemnise marriages in the Republic of Ireland.  Most of the ceremonies I conduct are real, legal weddings.

With me as your ceremony officiant, there is absolutely no need for you to attend the HSE registry office separately with your witnesses on a different day for your legal marriage signing, those days are long gone here in Ireland.

If you’d like to know more about the legal requirements for getting married in Ireland, please see my Legal Info page.

Ceremony Ideas & Style

Not yet sure what style of ceremony you’d like?  I work with you every step of the way, discussing all your ideas along with any of my ideas you might ask for, to create a relaxed and meaningful, unique & personalised non-denominational ceremony designed especially for you.   I create ceremonies of any style to suit your requirements, not to suit the rules of an organisation.  The only requirement from myself is that your ceremony must include at least one ceremony idea of your own choice to give meaning to your ceremony.  Because a ceremony without any meaning is nothing more than a speech – and you deserve so much more!

Many of the unique & meaningful ceremonies I create & conduct are in a non-religious, civil or humanist ceremony style with any number of added ceremony ideas of your choice.   I also love to create and conduct spiritual ceremonies, with or without a religious feel and/or religious elements of your choice.  I can also create a unique mixed faith ceremony to suit your mixed-faith beliefs perfectly.  If you would like to include a religious prayer to keep granny happy, that’s OK too! 

I am honoured to create non-denominational ceremonies for people from all faiths or none without any discrimination on faith or beliefs of any kind, which means I am free to create your beautiful ceremony in any style to suit your very own wishes!

I put you and your guests at ease right from the start to ensure that your beautiful ceremony is not only relaxed & meaningful, but auspicious & dignified at just the right moments and truly uplifting for you and your guests!  For that really is the true essence and of a 5-star ceremony.  

Honour & Integrity

I don’t ever perform ceremonies, I am not an actor.  I conduct unique & personalised, real & authentic ceremonies with genuine integrity, compassion & sincerity.

I never forget what an honour and a privilege it is to be entrusted with such an important responsibility.  With over 30 years experience in the art of ceremony in my homeland Australia 

I am a journalist, a story teller, and a ceremony magician,  I bring the enchantment and magic to each and every ceremony no matter how big or how small.  I put everyone at ease right from the start to ensure that your beautiful ceremony is auspicious, relaxed, creative, dignified and uplifting for you and your guests.

What inspires me the most is helping others to acheive their dreams – for me every ceremony really is my ceremony of the year.

Creative Design Approach

I am a creative and a visionary.  I approach everything I do with the goal of being the best I can be for those I am working for.  I love to use a creative and collaborative design approach in the design of your perfect ceremony.  This ensures that your voice is always heard and your ceremony wishes are always granted.

We meet up in person, or on Zoom for your ceremony design meeting where we discuss all of your ideas and your ceremony dream.  With my expert guidance, advice and creative vision, I help you every step of the way to design your dream ceremony, you are the design director every step of the way.

Together we not only make your ceremony dream become a reality, but I will ensure that your ceremony is polished and professional, and will exceed your expectations on the day.

Please see my Testimonials page for some of the many recommendations I receive each week, not only from couples I have worked with, but also from family & friends who have experienced the many ceremonies I have officiated over the years . 

For information about my quality standards please see my “What’s Included” page .   Please don’t hesitate to call me for an obligation-free chat, and to see if I am available on your big day. 

A 5-star ceremony really is a lot closer than you realise.  I would be honoured to work with you.
