Knowing firsthand how special this moment is, and how nervous you may feel, my mission is to make you comfortable and be true to yourself.
Whether you are having an intimate wedding in a backyard or an elopement on a mountain top, I’m ready! All my focus is on you. It’s all about raw emotions, having fun, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
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!
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.
I have 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!
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
Since becoming a Wedding Celebrant with the Humanist Association of Ireland in 2017 I have really enjoyed helping couples and families celebrate and remember those closest and dearest to them.
There is an old saying "enjoy what you do and you will never work a day in your life" and that certainly applies for me when it comes to being a Celebrant
Its not allways the fun things like Weddings and Baby naming's, I also do Funerals but I like to think I bring the same level of professionalism regardless of the ceremony type. I have been lucky to have won lots of awards over the years and acknowledgment from your industry peers is a very important metric and allows my clients to feel reassured that regardless of the service I perform for them that they will get the level of attention they need. Pat.
