Hi, I'm Ciara
My name is Ciara and I am a creative and forward-thinking celebrant. I am from Waterford, Ireland but I am willing to travel all over the country and beyond . I am currently available for Weddings, Vow Renewals and Baby Namings. I love working with people to create individualised ceremonies tailored just for them. If you imagine it, I can script and perform it! No ceremony is too big or too small. I weave ancient traditions with brand new ideas to create the day you’ve always dreamed of. I speak English and Irish fluently and I will give French a go!
What's my ceremony style?
I bring a uniqueness to your ceremony by really getting to know you beforehand. Together we will decide on symbolism and rituals that really showcase your values and your hopes for the future. I do this through scripting every ceremony from scratch over the months before the celebration. If you want a fun-filled, sincere and completely unique day, get it off to a great start with a Mo Chuisle ceremony.
Namings €250, Weddings €600, Vow Renewals €450
Wait...There Are No Rules!!
Myself and my clients were struggling to find ceremony enhancements that suited both parties when I had a lightbulb moment. There are no rules! Let’s make one up! And so we did, and so the happy couple became trend setters much to the delight of their celebrant and their guests!
Why choose Ciara?
I put my clients at ease with my relaxed yet organised approach to the ceremony. I make the guests feel very present and important which sets the intentions for the rest of your day! I will work closely with those involved beforehand to make sure the ceremony goes off without a hitch. This day is about you. The more we get to know eachother in the lead up the more memorable and intimate the day will be.
What do I offer?
My ideal couple are those who still want to get married after speaking with me! So all are welcome here! In with the old and in with the new I say. My favourite type of ceremony is one which is grounded in the values and beliefs of the couple both individually and as a unit. Through the use of tried and tested ceremony enhancements like sand, candles, music or handfasting entwined with my own original twists, we will craft a ceremony that is not only unique to you but also provides you with keepsakes you can bring forward with you as you journey through life together.
No ceremony is too big or too small. With a Mo Chuisle ceremony you will always be at the heart of it in every moment.
If you book me we will meet many times over Zoom or in person to discuss your ideas. I will share my expertise and ideas with you and together we will craft your ceremony. As I get to know you I will write your all important Love Story. This works as the ‘sermon’, which showcases you as a couple and your journey to this point. I perform this story to your and your guests setting a romantic and fun-filled tone for the rest of the day. I will fine-tune this Love Story to reflect your personalities and leave you with a story you will never forget. Really romantic? Well we’ll break out the doves. Mortified by the idea of gooey words? Well we’ll use a different approach. his ceremony is yours and will be brought to life in whichever style you like.
Why choose Ciara for your wedding?
I am calm, organised and professional in everything I do. I will put you at the heart of your ceremony and make your love shine. I am bursting with new ceremony ideas but also value older traditions. I will make sure you and your guests experience a ceremony to remember and I will do it all with a great big smile.
Celebrating your new arrival is an absolute must and what better way than a Naming Ceremony. Bring together your nearest and dearest and I will help you welcome your little one to the world with a mix of guest participation, symbolism and ancient ritual you are sure to remember forever.
As a Primary School teacher I have many tricks up my sleeve to involve the whole family in this special day. Together we will provide special moments to symbolise the welcoming of your newest family member through music, arts and crafts and anything else that reflects you as a family. All ideas are welcomed and no idea is too big or too small.
Why choose Ciara for your naming ceremony?
I am skilled in dealing with children and adults alike! I perform ceremonies with a big smile on my face. I engage with the guests and family making the ceremony a heartwarming and memorable moment in time. I capture this moment through symbolism and keepsakes that the child and their family will cherish forever.

I offer a refreshing take on vow renewal through brand new ceremony rituals and a sermon based completely on your journey so far through life together. I will help you put pen to paper to write those all important vows and I will put you at the heart of each and every part of the ceremony.

Our best day
We can’t thank Ciara enough for making our day so special. All our guest were bowled over by the calm and fun ceremony that we had and the kids even enjoyed the ceremony and loved having an input into the day too . Ciara made the organizing of everything so simple and straightforward but yet have everything we wanted covered effortlessly. I would highly recommend Ciara for any occasion xxx
Ciara was amazing for our joint vow renewal!
Wow! I highly recommend working with Ciara! My husband and I had a joint vow renewal with my parents. Ciara went above and beyond to make sure that our renewals were unique and special. She worked with us remotely from the States and made the whole process extremely smooth and easy. She researched the history of the property in Ireland where we were having the ceremony and added interesting facts about the property and Celtic traditions to our renewals, which made it even more special to us. She is such a bright and positive person, and a joy to work with…Thank you, Ciara! You made our renewals something that we will treasure for the rest of our lives!
What a Joy
We found Ciara through a friend of ours and oh my gosh! How lucky we were! Ciara was absolutely amazing and everything and more we could have asked for in a celebrant. She was very attentive to what we wanted and didn’t want for the ceremony and also gave helpful suggestions. We had multiple meetings Ciara which was really nice because it made us feel like she was really taking care of us and got a chance to get to know Kevin and I. This really showed when we heard our love story she had written for us and everything in between. We had multiple friends and family come up to us after the ceremony to tell us how amazing Ciara was and where did we find her :)
We can’t thank Ciara enough as she made our ceremony so very special and was everything, we could of ever dreamed of. Even with a little bit of a rain, Ciara helped improvise and it still turned out perfect. It was important to us that our day was filled with laughter but also filled with the love that Kevin and I have for one another, and Ciara helped to express and share that to all our guest. THANKS SO MUCH CIARA!
