Why choose Mary for your wedding?
From Niamh : (featured in this video)There are no words to express how special Mary made our day. It was magical Not a dry eye at the service. We are forever grateful Love you to bits Mary
From Niamh’s sister Simone : Mary O Donovan Celebrant, your warmth made everyone relax so much on the day. The ceremony had such emotional content to it. In my opinion it’s the way that weddings should be. A huge Thank You from All The Dillon Family for giving us an unforgettable day.
The naming ceremony is all about introducing a new person to the world, honouring their existence, giving them their name, making wishes for their life, making promises to care for them and to help them to grow into their true selves, electing a sponsor or mentor to look out for their welfare and creating a happy memory involving the child for everyone to cherish.
Rose Petal Ceremony– This is where each person takes a petal, makes a wish or blessing or good intention for the baby and then places it in a water bowl. The water in this bowl now carries the essence of these rose petals and it is also imbibed with all the positive thoughts and heartfelt messages. The baby’s head and heart is now anointed with the Rose Petal water. In this act we are bestowing upon the baby symbolically all of the good will and tributes and we welcome the baby to the family and community.

Why choose Mary for your naming ceremony?
From Aoife Moloney : We are really and truly blown away by how special Mary made our son Oisín’s naming ceremony. Between making suggestions about poetry and ceremony enhancements to include, and listening to our every whimsical idea, Mary created a beautiful and truly personal ceremony that could not have been more perfect. Everyone who attended was blown away, with many people not really being sure what to expect from a naming ceremony. The whole day felt so natural and relaxed, and all of our guests felt included by the flower petal ceremony suggested by Mary.
Renewal of Vows
Many people believe that entering into marriage is the final step in a romantic relationship. As they see it, a couple meets, gets to know each other, falls in love, decides they want to go through life together, and then take the final step – marriage.
But marriage is not meant to be the final step in couple’s relationship – it is really just the beginning of a grand adventure that hopefully, will be long and fruitful for each couple.
Simply put, a vow renewal is a way to celebrate your marriage. Perhaps you’ve made it to 2, 5, 10, 25 or 50 years together and you want the world to know you’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.You’ll exchange vows, recalling what you said when you were first married. You could also vary the wording and write original vows. This is an opportunity for both of you to really think about how you feel about your relationship, especially if the last time you exchanged vows was decades ago.

Beautiful, Personal and professional ceremony
Mary was absolutely brilliant from beginning to end. She really made the whole experience as personal as possible. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, we felt in safe hands. We would definitely recommend Mary as a wedding celebrant. She made the ceremony like no other, every detail was so personalized and the guests loved it. We got so many compliments on the ceremony and how entertaining and special it was for guests.
A stress free wedding
“Mary was exceptional and we would recommend her services to any couples who are looking for a Celebrant for their wedding. Mary made the whole process so easy, we live in the States and planning a wedding abroad was very stressful, but Mary put us at ease. She made our ceremony very personal, special and unique. It was filled with some of the classic wedding ceremony traditions while incorporating some of the new modern traditions. When we got to rehearsal we realized we never bought candles for our ceremony, that was no problem for Marry she was able to help us out with candles for our ceremony while reassuring us that it was no problem from her end. Mary wrote up a beautiful ceremony for us and then helped us incorporate our family including, a poem by my young cousin, a special memorial poem by my aunt, a song sung by my mom and more… She worked directly with us to provide her readings while also ensuring we were happy with the proposed write up and accepted any (very) small changes we requested. At the end of our ceremony Mary performed the traditional Celtic handfasting ceremony, which was so beautiful and will be remembered by us forever. We would recommend Mary to local folks as well as folks looking to plan a wedding abroad!”
Rachael & David’s Wedding
We had the pleasure of having Mary as the Celebrant for our recent wedding, and she made our ceremony absolutely perfect. She brought a wonderful energy to the wedding, and we received so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was from our guests. I knew I wanted Mary as my celebrant after reading her thoughtful website and talking to her. She was so kind and helpful through every step of the process of planning a wedding from overseas. Our ceremony was everything we could have wished for and more. Thank you Mary!
