Welcome to the website of Pat Clarke-Browne Humanist Celebrant.
I have been a certified Humanist Association of Ireland Celebrant and HSE certified Solemniser Since 2017.
This allows me to perform legally binding secular Weddings in Ireland as well as help you design the perfect ceremony for your special day. I am based in Shannon Co. Clare but travel to all counties for ceremonies with a flat rate of €50 for travel so no mileage rate charged. Please use the Inquiries form for any queries.
There is a huge demand for Humanist Weddings and Humanist Wedding Celebrants like myself find that they are very busy up to 2 or 3 years in advance so its never to early to start planning your Wedding!
If I am not free on your date when you check availability of Celebrants on the HAI page it will list other Celebrants who are free on your date!

I have been a contract IT lecturer for over 30 years and in 2017 I completed my training with the Humanist Association of Ireland and became a HSE registered Legal Solemniser, since then I have completed over 500 weddings and other ceremonies all over Ireland! I have also over 14 years experience as an event and Wedding Photographer and bring some of those skills across to ensure that my couples get the best possible experience for their big day!
I really enjoy working with couples to help them design their ceremony to reflect what they want. There are templates to use as starting points but they really can add as much of themselves to the to ceremony as they wish. Couples can incorporate many ceremony elements such as Hand Fasting or Sand Ceremonies and I offer some more fun options like a Chocolate ceremony or the Couple can "Take a Shot before the tie the Knot!"
Check out my Galleries for photos and Video from Ceremonies I have performed and feel free to contact me for a chat about what you might like for your ceremony! I am based in Shannon but I travel all over the country to help Couples have their day their way!
