Available for weddings in Munster and Leinster
There are important transitions in every human life – birth, marriage, graduation, retirement, death – and humans need to gather together for these. Being a celebrant allows me to participate in those events and to help mark them as significant and meaningful occasions, and I have been doing that for the last five years or so.
My other occupations are all connected to my interest in people, society and trying to leave the world a little better than I found it. I teach sociology at DCU and am involved in the BSc program in Counselling and Psychotherapy at PCI College. I work as a counsellor in a private capacity, and am also trained as a mediator. I am interested in research in field of health and illness and I am a patient advocate and campaigner.
I am an avid gardener and supporter of GIY and anyone else who wants to look after our precious and endangered natural world. I am a voracious reader and mother of two adult children.
Myself and L just wanted to thank you again for our amazing day. Everyone is still talking about how beautiful and emotional the ceremony was. We felt so loved and adored by everybody on the day and you really made us feel so relaxed.
We have had so many compliments about the ceremony. I think it was a huge eye opener for a lot of folks who have only ever attended a church wedding. The service was very personal to us and people really noticed that so thank you for allowing us to make it our own. Some couples have said to us that they wanted to go back in time and re marry and have that exact same service! Other younger couples said it was something they hadn’t really considered but after seeing ours were seriously considering choosing a humanist ceremony for their weddings. M&I.
“We have been meaning to send you a note since the wedding, I just got home from Ireland yesterday and M.is back in Nigeria for a few weeks so it has all been a bit of a whirlwind. We wanted to tell you how much we loved the ceremony. It was the best part of the day and we had so many people come and tell us how moving and meaningful it was. We have some very religious family members who were a bit sceptical when they heard we were doing a Humanist ceremony but they were raving about it all evening. We all particularly loved the hand blessing and how beautifully you delivered those words. Mathew and I really appreciate how professional you are and how relaxed and low key you made everything, for us it was perfect. We are so happy to be married and starting this next chapter. Thank you so much for the part you played in making our wedding special, it will be a memory we treasure forever.”
“We’re just back from our honeymoon and wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you for everything. The ceremony was so, so special, even more than we ever imagined it would be. It meant so much to us that it was so reflective of our relationship and of our families, and so much of that was down to you, your delivery on the day and the care you put into helping us to plan it. We had so many guests tell us it was the most special ceremony they’d ever attended, and although we’re very biased, we totally agree! We ran off to take pictures straight after and didn’t get to thank you on the day, but wanted to thank you and let you know how much we appreciated your role in our wedding.”
