Married with Grace (Celebrant and Solemniser)
I am passionate about people, friendship, relationships, love and romance and it is those passions that help me create my wedding ceremonies. I create special and memorable (legal) wedding ceremonies with you and for you, to share your love for each other in front of your family and friends (or on your own).
Together we will create a day that celebrates your journey from the time you met to the day of your wedding.
Marriage is a special union between you and a symbol of your love for each other, and I will work with you to make your day very memorable and unique to you.
I specialise in Destination Ireland wedding and elopement ceremonies. If you are thinking of getting married or eloping abroad, what better place than your ancestral home?
Ireland, also known as the Emerald Isle, is famous for its landscapes, literature, poetry, music and a thousand welcomes. Céad Míle Fáilte.
Ireland is the ancestral home for millions of people around the world, Great Britain, USA, Australia, Canada to name a few.
I can help create that perfect traditional Irish wedding, working with partners (photographers, musicians, hotels, guest houses and florists) in the many fabulous destinations and venues in Ireland.
Why choose Michael for your wedding?
My style is relaxed, open and romantic which allows a couple to turn their dream into reality. Your wedding ceremony is crafted by you, guided by me. Everything in your ceremony is exactly as you dreamed for your special day. I welcome you to explore all possibilities to make your wedding a day to truly remember. My guiding principle is personal, individual and unique.
A new baby is like the beginning of things – Wonder, Hope, A Dream of Possibilities
Baby Naming gives you the opportunity to mark the birth and naming of your baby in a way that suits you, unique to you and your beliefs.
This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this new little life or new arrival (adoption, fostering), expressing all that you wish for your child in their future ahead, make promises and vows to him or her as parents, siblings and grandparents and to gather with your community of friends and family who encircle and support your new family.
My naming ceremonies range from welcoming a new baby, adoption ceremonies and fostering ceremonies. I also include in this coming of age ceremonies as children pass through each stage of their lives, from child to young adult to adult.
Why choose Michael for your naming ceremony?
Your Child, Your Ceremony, Your Way
A unique and personal ceremony to welcome your child into your family.
Renewal of Vows
There are many reasons why a couple renew their vows of marriage including an anniversary, a birthday or other significant occasion during their journey together.
I will work with you to create a ceremony that celebrates your journey together in married life.
Your ceremony will be crafted as you wish, involving all those who have traveled your journey with you.
Why choose Michael for your renewal of vows?
Guide to your Vow Renewal Ceremony
Pick Your Date – A wedding anniversary, birthday or other special occasion.
Choose Your Venue – Return to the place you got engaged or married, a favourite holiday destination, location of your family home.
Choose Your Vows – Your original wedding vows or new commitments to each other.
Choose your Ceremony – Ring Exchange, Readings, Poetry, Lighting of Candles, Blending of Sands, Handfasting.
Invite Guests, or Not – On your own or with family and friends.
Celebrate – What more can be said!
Celebrating life rather than mourning death.
Funeral Services: I create personal funeral services to celebrate the life of the deceased. Working with the family, the funeral service remembers the deceased, their personalities, their passions and their beliefs.
Scattering of Ashes: For families who have chosen cremation the next question is what to do with the remains of your their loved one. Many choose to bring them home or replace their remains in a local cemetery. But there are so many other ways to scatter the ashes of the departed through a ceremony that reflects both their personalities and their beliefs.
Memorial Services A memorial service is usually held to celebrate the life of the deceased. It can be held anytime after their death, one year later or on a birthday or other anniversary. It is a lovely way to remember the departed when out of the initial shock of your loss.
Why choose Michael for your funeral?
Whether it is a funeral, memorial service or scattering of ashes I will create, with you, a unique and personal ceremony that embraces the beliefs and values of the deceased. A ceremony that celebrates the life and spirit of the departed.

Made our day everything we ever wanted and more.
We could not have picked a better celebrant for our big day. Michael is so warm and professional and very easy to plan with. He explained everything for us in detail in the run up to the wedding and was always available when we had any questions about the ceremony.
We had a great experience on our wedding day as Michael was very engaging with the guests. The way he presented our story made it seem like he has known us for years. Everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was and in fact most people said that it was the best ceremony that they had ever been to. We will be forever grateful to you Michael, for making our day everything we ever wanted and more.
We highly recommend Michael to be your wedding celebrant. He has the perfect balance no matter what your style. Our day would not have been as special without Michael.
The best in the business!
Michael’s warm and friendly nature made it impossible to find a better man for the job. Once we met him we knew our decision had been made.
His professionalism is second to none and he took incredible care to include personal details in our ceremony. We were blown away by the beautiful atmosphere he created. Many of our guests complimented the ceremony amazed at the personal touches within the ceremony, many of which were suggested by Michael. He took great care in curating a touching ceremony.
Everyone felt at ease and relaxed and truly felt a part of the celebration. He really set the tone for the day.
We wanted something a little different and Michael really did create an unforgettable day for us. Advising us on what might work best for us. Michael guided us on every aspect and gave his honest opinion which we greatly appreciated.
We couldn’t be more pleased with Team Grace. We can’t wait to work with Michael again for future occasions. The best in the business!
If you’re looking for the best Celebrant for your wedding or vow renewal in Ireland, look no further – you just found him!
My husband and I decided to renew our vows for our 20th anniversary. I didn’t even know where to begin, but I stumbled across Michael’s site and from then on all the pieces came together.
Michael was absolutely extraordinary!! It all started with a few emails, followed by zoom meetings so we could plan our special day!
He went so far and above any expectation I had. He helped me find an amazing photographer and his close friend to play the harp for us (flawlessly) – literally bringing my dream to life!!
To say Michael was instrumental in making our day perfect is an understatement. The fact of the matter is, we could not have done it without him!!
I strongly recommend him for any need you may have, he is absolutely amazing!!
