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.

Personal and warm approach to the ceremony
‘We would highly recommend Michael for your special day.
We wanted a laid back ceremony that was about us and family and that is exactly what Michael provided. From the planning stages right through to the big day he was always ready to answer any questions and advised small changes that would make our ceremony even better!
He made us feel very comfortable on the day and many of our family commented on his personal and warm approach to the ceremony. A delay in the venue was navigated seamlessly by Michael and we would have no hesitation in recommending him for your wedding day.
We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.’
Every part of the ceremony was perfect.
My wife and I would love to write a review for Michael Grace Celebrant. Michael was from the outset of our enquiry, very professional, caring, empathetic and genuine. We had several meetings with Michael in the months preceding our ceremony during which time Michael got to know my wife and I, and in turn we got to know Michael. This made the ceremony personal and enabled Michael to tailor the ceremony to us and our family and guests. Every part of the ceremony was perfect. Michael embraced the wedding traditions that we chose and he implemented them beautifully into the ceremony. Michael mingles with our family and guests before and after the ceremony which was very genuine and was very well received by all. Michael, thank you for making our ceremony so special and thank you for the advice and guidance in the preparation. You put our minds at ease from very earlier on in the process and we knew we were in safe hands. You did an amazing job and we really appreciate you. We highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a wedding celebrant who is really genuine, caring and professional and very good at what he does !! 5 stars
