Hi, I'm Mairéad
At Celebrate Moments, I work hard to create a truly memorable, meaningful, and personalised ceremony.
Whatever the ceremony or occasion, and regardless of whether you want something traditional or unconventional, my role is to help you create the special ceremony.
All of the ceremonies are created and written with absolute love. There is nothing that compares to the amazing feeling that I have from being invited to be a part of such an important time in peoples’ lives.
I am also a Solemniser and can marry you seven days a week!
What's my ceremony style?
Through personal experience, I developed a fond interest in becoming a Celebrant. Taking part in your ceremony is a personal privilege.
Working together, I will develop and conduct a ceremony tailored just for your event. Using my love of words, meanings, and creativity and your style and ideas, I can help you design and create a wonderful ceremony full of all those special moments you want to share, including personal vows, poems, readings, and music – (anything that holds a special meaning for you).
I love working with couples and their children, I think it is lovely to be able to involve your children in your ceremony. A celebrant-led ceremony allows you to include whomever you wish.
If you want to have a ceremony that is fun but has emotional parts in it, I will provide that!
Why choose Mairéad?
Would you like something different from a traditional ceremony; where the same words for every couple are simply read from a common script?
Are you looking for a unique location for your ceremony but don’t want to be restricted only by official venues?
Your wedding ceremony doesn’t have to be the boring part of the day!
Do you want a fun and non-traditional ceremony?
Do you want a personalised ceremony, written just for you, and expresses your love and commitment to each other in a totally unique, tailored, and meaningful way?
If yes was the answer to any of the above questions, you have come to the right place!!
What do I offer?
I love places that are really unique and different, but I also love country houses and castles.
My ideal couple is someone who wants a non-traditional wedding, who wants to include members of their family and friends into their ceremony, and who wants to have fun!
My favourite ceremony type is a wedding with a lot of interactive elements such as handfasting and sand ceremony. I love the handfasting ceremony as this can include personal stories and promises.
My packages are all bespoke as every couple has different needs and wants so I offer couples individual packages.
I guide all my couples through everything they need to do from the first minute of contact. I am here for all their questions, worries, and joys.
I can advise on suppliers and venues. I go over and beyond for all my couples to the point where I have often been seen holding a wedding dress tail in my hands!
Why choose Mairéad for your wedding?
I will use the words of some of my clients – “So calming and really genuine” “She is super informative and really charismatic” “Who is fun, passionate, supremely talented, and really approachable.”
“From the first phone call, constant contact and availability, zoom calls, meeting before the wedding too, of course, making our day so special. You’re attention to detail and the care you showed for us and our story was second to none.”
“Mairéad had us laughing and crying.”
Once you have registered the birth of your newborn baby and if you prefer not to have a traditional religious christening, there is an alternative. A baby naming ceremony can be a lovely way to celebrate your new arrival.
Family, friends, godparents (or supporting adults) can be involved in any way you wish, with readings, special wishes/blessings for the baby. The occasion can include religious, spiritual, and/or symbolic elements.
Advice on elements to use, poems, music, and readings.
Why choose Mairéad for your naming ceremony?
As a mother myself, I know how your children are the most precious and important part of your life. Celebrate your new arrival and announce this to your family and friends with a naming ceremony.
Renewal of Vows
This ceremony is for married couples who wish to celebrate a renewal of their marriage vows in a unique and personal ceremony accompanied by family and friends. It is an ideal opportunity to commemorate a special anniversary, such as the 10th, 25th, 40th, or 50th, but the ceremony is just as appropriate at any stage of marriage.
Handfasting or a Sand ceremony is a lovely way to celebrate the family you may have created during your marriage.
Why choose Mairéad for your renewal of vows?
Vow renewals are held for any number of reasons. Perhaps you were only able to have a small wedding or elopement and now wish to have more guests present. Maybe you have overcome an illness, or other situation in their marriage and want to re-commit to each other.
I think it’s a lovely way to celebrate your life as a married couple!
The day on which you say your final farewell is like no other. When the inevitable happens it is reassuring to know that I am available to help and guide you through the process and assist you to make arrangements at what can be a very upsetting time. A time when friends and family come together to say goodbye to a loved one. When we lose someone very dear to us, not only should we mourn their passing but we should celebrate their life and achievements.
Please allow me the honour and privilege of performing this last task for your loved one. Increasingly, bereaved families are customising ceremonies to honour & respect their loved ones in ways that reflect their spirit and personality.
Bespoke packages for the families needs
Why choose Mairéad for your funeral?
This is an area where I am experienced and truly gifted. Handcrafting is a personal service to celebrate the life of your loved one who has passed away.

We had Mairéad at Celebrant Moments as our celebrant. She was excellent, we had no idea about any of the ceremony but she helped us through it all. She provided us with lots of samples of poems, readings, music, our vows and the wording for the ring exchange. Mairéad even played our music on her own sound system which saved us some money too! Everyone was so impressed with the wedding ceremony, Mairéad had us laughing and crying. I highly recommend Mairéad as a celebrant. She was always at the end of the phone for us! Thanks Mairéad at Celebrant Moments. Georgia and Simon xxx
So calming and really genuine, you can tell that Mairéad really loves what she does and will go out of her way to make sure you love it too. She was quick to answer any and all questions and so supportive of our ideas for the ceremony. We got to involve our son in our wedding ceremony which was very special. She is super informative and really charismatic and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a celebrant who is fun, passionate, supremely talented, and really approachable.”-

We were so lucky to have Mairéad as our Celebrant. Let’s say not everything went to plan on the day and Mairéad was so understanding. She’s light-hearted, goes with the flow, is really easy to talk to, and was one of the best aspects of our day. I couldn’t rate her highly enough, She’s just great.
