I invest in you and you get meetings, telephone calls, face to face meetings and in these Covid-19 times Zoom / WhatsApp & Skype meetings. You get to sit with me and plan your Ceremony, not a template, not a generic Ceremony that could apply to anyone but a bespoke Ceremony that is centered on you and your partner. I create your Ceremony to reflect you, and I will help make the planning through to delivery as stress-free and simple as possible. You get drafts and re-drafts until we get it just right for you. You get personalised ceremony enhancements and more. You get the benefit of my years of training, my 16 years of experience creating Ceremonies and access to the resources that I have built up over the years.

Wedding | 10/29/2021 | The Dean Hotel Dublin

During our initial conversation she ran through the running order for the ceremony itself. This included ideas around readings, periods of reflection, places for musical interludes and specific ceremonies such as a sand ceremony, handfasting and ceremony of light. We were then sent material for readings and vows as well as a questionnaire to fill out which allowed Brenda to create a very personalized celebrant address for the day. Once we had made decisions on the various parts of the ceremony we were then sent a draft of the ceremony. There were no issues with making amendments to suit our needs and Brenda was very keen on including family and friends during the ceremony itself. On the day of the wedding Brenda arrived 2 hours beforehand to set things up and to ensure things were perfect. All of our guests commented on how lovely and personal Brenda made the ceremony. We would have no hesitation in recommending Brenda to any couple looking for a wedding celebrant. She really helped in making our day very special and made it completely stress free for us.

Brenda made the process leading up to our wedding so easy. The ceremony was so special for us as she added lovely little touches to personalise it. We were both so emotional and didn’t expect to be. We would highly recommend Brenda and were delighted to have her officiate our Ceremony, she made our special day.
