I have trained with the Irish Institute of Celebrants (IIOC) and I am on the Register of Solemnisers with Entheos Ireland

Hi, I'm Barbara

Welcome to my profile! If you’re looking for a bespoke and personal ceremony written for you with joy and love you have come to the right place. I can create a unique, personal and unforgettable day.

I am a proud member of Entheos Ireland. Entheos Ireland was founded to serve people who have been ostracised, marginalised or otherwise left behind by traditional faith paths on the basis of gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, nationality, parental/family status or any other reason. I am on the Register of Solemnisers with this joyful and inclusive group.

You will choose the elements to create your ceremony, but most importantly I will be with you along the way to help you discover what a perfect ceremony means to you

What's my ceremony style?

Being present! With modern life flying by us so fast we rarely allow ourselves to stop, breathe, and take note of the important occasions in our life. As a marriage celebrant I make it my mission to deliver a ceremony that family and friends will always remember with a genuine focus on the couple, their story and most importantly the love that they are sharing. That’s why I always get to know you before the big day, meeting up to discuss everything over a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine!). If that’s not possible, lets have a Zoom date instead!

Why choose Barbara?

I am here to get to know you, your story, where you are coming from and where you are going. I want you both to feel at ease with me on the day. I am here to guide you to create what is the perfect ceremony for you – and if you don’t know what that is – we can discover it together. No request is too big – I am here to give you the day you’ve dreamed of!

Why choose Barbara for your wedding?

The couple are at the absolute centre of the day. I love getting to know you personally, understanding what you want and channeling that all into the ceremony. I want your day to look like you personally created it. If you are not a fan of the mushy stuff your ceremony can be the most relaxed and chilled out day – if you love the grand gestures I can create that too. The idea is that I am here to listen to what you want and to tune the wedding towards that. You will know exactly what you are getting on the day as you will have signed off on everything. It is your day, your way!

Naming Ceremonies

Why choose Barbara for your naming ceremony?

Baby naming ceremonies are unique, personalised and will leave cherished memories with you and all your guests. The focus is on the child with blessings and good wishes that family and friends bestow onto the baby. You can incorporate music, readings, grandparents and big brothers and sisters into the ceremony making it a truly family celebration. You can introduce your new family member to the world with happiness, joy (a few tears!) and love.

I will get to know you before the joyful occasion and we will create a ceremony which is unique to you and your child – at a time that suits them! The great things about a naming ceremony is that it can be held anywhere – pull up a few stools (or sit on the floor!) and we can have it in your living room! The child will be surrounded by those they love in a place they know.

Renewal of Vows

Why choose Barbara for your renewal of vows?

A vow renewal ceremony is a beautiful way to mark an anniversary and allows you to create a ceremony in any location you wish – from your back garden to the Cliffs of Moher! It can be a small intimate gathering with readings and music – or it could be a full blown wedding ceremony as you reaffirm your vows to each other in a loving and joyful space.

Do you wish you had done something different for your original wedding ceremony? A vow renewal is the perfect way to gather friends and family (or create a ceremony more intimate – with no guests!) and create that day you always wanted. Perhaps it was just the location you wish you had done differently – a vow renewal can take place anywhere, from your local park to your favourite restaurant, museum, beach – together we can create the perfect ceremony that reflects you and your partner.

Great day

Naming Ceremony | 06/17/2022 | Bray

We got in touch with the lovely Barbara for our baby daughters naming ceremony. Barbara sat with us beforehand and we chatted about our baby, her personality, quirks, her birth story,etc. She put together a wonderfully touching, sweet and funny ceremony, involving the grandparents, siblings and our community of friends and neighbours. It was the best we could ask for and would highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a special ceremony, she was an absolute joy to work with!

Your wedding day is a very special day. Making your vows to each other is a very precious time. Barbara delivered an Exceptional Ceremony. She captured the essence of us and introduced some beautiful poetry, and presented it in such a way that moved both us and our guests.
Barbara is relaxed, kind, friendly, down to earth and very giving with her time. On the day she will deliver the perfect ceremony for you.
We couldn’t have asked for better.
Thank you Barbara


Barbara is Truly Wonderful!

We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant! We were so thankful that Barbara really listened to our story and incorporated that into our unique, “perfect for us” ceremony. What a great experience. Thank you for everything friend! ❤️
