EXPERIENCE

WEDDING CEREMONY -FUNNY, FUNKY, RELIGIOUS OR HUMANIST
For it was not into my ear you whispered but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul - Judy Garland
I am proud to offer Wedding Ceremonies, Same Sex Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows Ceremonies; for all couples celebrating their big day. I will design a ceremony in a personal and unique way that suits you in every way.
Irish Law declares that for a marriage to be legal, it must be officiated by a Registrar of Marriage; and can only take place in a licensed building so you must go to a registry office to make your marriage legally binding. It does not have to be on the day of your Wedding Ceremony, no more than your birthday party has to be on the exact day of your birthday. A Ceremony can be conducted anywhere or at any time you choose. You can also wear what you like, and if you like me to wear something different or to fit in with a theme, I am more than willing to do so, at extra cost of course.

Whether you choose to marry in a hotel, a pub, on the beach, in a boat or on the mountain, having me as your wedding celebrant, will give you the flexibility to have your wedding tailor-made and designed to meet your own personal requirements in every way. You can include your own spiritual, religious or cultural beliefs. There is a variety of wonderful rites, which can be woven into your ceremony, like Hand-fasting, Sand Ceremony, Unity Candles or any other symbolic ceremony of your choosing.
I am very approachable and accommodating, so feel free to ask and request anything you like. You can phone or text me, as often as you like. I will help you in writing your own vows if you wish to read them to one another or if you prefer that I read out to both of you. I will write the script for the ceremony and email it on to you beforehand for your approval so that your day is your way in every way.

I cover the Munster Area, the Wild Atlantic Way from Cork to Donegal, the Midlands and the South East.



CEREMONY STYLE

I offer Wedding Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Baby Naming Ceremonies. I like to add in a little of the Irish culture and would offer a choice of poems in the Irish Language or in both Irish/English combined.

I travel all over Southern Ireland and I am willing to celebrate your ceremony in whatever location you wish, be it by the sea, on the hills, on a cliff top or in the garden of the house you are renting or in your own back garden, in sunshine or rain, whatever it is that makes your dreams come true.

"I cannot rave enough about Eithne and the ceremony she put together for us. My wife and I had planned a destination wedding to Ireland for our dream ceremony. At our planner's suggestion we decided on Eithne to officiate our wedding. Eithne was warm, inviting, comfortable and completely at ease with our suggestions. She put together an absolutely beautiful hand-fasting ceremony, as well as incorporating many of our personal touches.

Eithne did an excellent job getting to know my wife and I, given all communication before the ceremony was done via email. She made sure to include so many personal details of our families, our history and our future.

Eithne has such a warm light and positive presence that she bring with her, and it shows when she is in her element. When you meet her, you feel as though you are catching up with an old friend. We cannot thank her enough for the care, time and patience she put in to making our wedding ceremony beautiful. Thank you a million times Eithne!

Gay Wedding Ceremony

Knoppogue Castle, Co Clare | September 0018

Eithne made us feel so at ease. From the very start it didn't matter that we were a gay, as she said we were a special couple just renewing our vows and our love for one another and she treated us like royalty. She wrote the most amazing script and had some wonderful ideas on how to include our two children and also to remember my deceased parents in a very loving and tender way without I breaking down in tears. That I am forever grateful. She also included some funny one-liners that took us totally unawares and had us laughing and she very thoughtfully remembered that we like to relax with a glass of beer and had brought along two cans of Irish craft beer to give us a surprise toast at the very end, the perfect finish. I must say we will be forever grateful to her for making our ceremony so special and we will always remember it with such joy. Lucy and Cathy

I can't thank Eithne enough

Oh my goodness, I can't thank Eithne enough for the wonderful ceremony she wrote for Moe and I. It meant so much to us. And most of all, I can't thank her enough for sticking it out in the pouring rain with us. She must think we're crazy! But she truly helped make the day a dream come true for us. And she did it all with a smile on her face the whole time, despite the challenging weather. I'm sorry we didn't have the chance to chat more - it was such a pleasure meeting her. Thanks to her a million times over" - Kerry.

So Helpful

Eithne was so helpful in trying to plan a surprise blessing from the US. I found her only two weeks before our trip. She was willing to travel and took care of every detail for us. It was very personal and touching! I could not have asked for it to have turned out better" - Gary

"Just want to re-iterate how much we loved what she did for our ceremony, it was the talk of guests for the entire weekend!! They couldn't get over how lovely it was compared to say a traditional church ceremony, she truly did a wonderful job" - Kelly

Why Choose Eithne

ABOUT EITHNE
The ceremonies that persist - birthdays, weddings, funerals - focus on ourselves, marking rites of personal transition - Robin Wall Kimmerer
I am an independent civil celebrant. I reside in Castlegregory, in West Kerry and I decided to become a celebrant after attending my son's wedding ceremony. I am warm, loving and relaxed, with a great sense of humour and I am so excited to meet couples and feel privileged to share in planning your wedding or helping you and your family in planning a naming ceremony for the new arrival. I also have great compassion in supporting families in their time of mourning the passing of their loved ones.
My background is in the civil service, where I spent twenty-five years before life changing experiences took me off in a different direction. I have now spent the past fifteen years in alternative therapies where I practice acupuncture, homeopathy and other therapies on a part time basis. I also have the added skills to help calm the nerves on the big day and the experience to ease the shock of trauma and grief as you come to terms with loss and prepare to say goodbye to your loved one in your own special way.
I am very creative and artistic and love writing ceremonies.
