If you're planning your day in the West of Ireland, I can offer practical, local advice & help with any detail.

Hi, I'm Siobhan

My name is Siobhan, I’m a formally trained independent celebrant based in Connemara on the West coast of Ireland. Helping family & friends to organise celebrations has been a constant theme in my life – I’ve always loved the feelings of joy & unity such occasions inspire. I’ve a background in making presentations to the public through years spent working on the beautiful Aran Islands – finally becoming a celebrant felt like a totally natural progression for me.

What's my ceremony style?

Whatever you’re looking to commemorate – a wedding, a new addition to the family, vow renewals, or a more solemn anniversary, my goal is to understand your needs & offer inspiring ideas to make it unique, authentic & meaningful. I’ve deep respect for diversity & offer individually tailored ceremonies that can take place wherever & whenever you want – my aim is to deliver memorable and touching celebrations of life that make you & your guests feel included, at ease & uplifted.

Funerals

I embrace the fact that many families are looking to less formal ways of celebrating the passing of a loved one – ceremonies that are respectful without religiosity, reflective & moving without following the strict conventions of a traditional funeral ceremony. Recognising the sensitivity of such occassions, I’ll work with you & help to translate any wishes of the deceased to create a ceremony that honours life, reflects the individual & permits fitting ways for family and friends to share in the process of saying goodbye if you wish.

I’m able to tailor packages to suit your budget & wishes. It’s a sensitive time when you may be feeling overwhelmed, and after our initial discussions it can be helpful to get ideas about the different ways in which a life can be celebrated – it may be something entirely novel or I can suggest some simple, symbolic acts that reflect age-old human rituals around the passing of life. If you don’t have any fixed plan for your ceremony, I can help provide inspiration for memorable & moving ways for family and friends to share their grief & love in ceremonies.

Why choose Siobhan for your funeral?

My goal is to understand your needs & offer inspiring ideas to make the commemoration of your loved one unique, authentic & meaningful. I’ve deep respect for diversity & offer individually tailored ceremonies that can take place wherever & whenever you want – my aim is to deliver memorable and touching celebrations of life that make you & your guests feel included, at ease & uplifted.
