Hi, I'm Yvonne
Hi and a huge congratulations to you as you embark on this exciting journey!
My name is Yvonne Cassidy, I am a Wedding Celebrant based in Dublin, Ireland. I have been a Celebrant for five years and in that time I have been so lucky to work with amazing couples from all over the world. It is always such an honour to be trusted to create a ceremony for a couple that shows who they are and what they are about. In other words, a ceremony all about them (the way it should be!).
I am Chairperson of The Irish Ethical Celebrants Society which is a group for independent celebrants. I believe in the importance of building community amongst celebrants in Ireland, which in turn benefits our couples and families.
What's my ceremony style?
My style is quite relaxed. I love guest involvement in a ceremony, I think it makes the ceremony so special and unique, and I always look for ways to include the guests (with the couples permission of course!). Fun and joy are at the heart of every ceremony I perform.
Why choose Yvonne?
I am curious about people and their stories, and really enjoy finding out what it is that makes a couple tick.
I give my couples the freedom to make bold choices, the comfort of knowing they have a professional, experienced Celebrant leading the way on the day, and the joy of having a wedding ceremony that is all about them.
What do I offer?
My couples are looking for a fun and modern twist on traditional wedding ceremonies. They don’t want a cookie cutter ceremony, and want to be involved in creating something magical that they will remember forever.
Elopement ceremonies are a big passion of mine, I really enjoy the sense of adventure with them – two people madly in love running off to get married!
Ritual and ceremony is a huge part of Irish heritage and I love finding ways to bring ancient traditions into modern ceremonies. My absolute favourite thing is when couples get their guests involved – what a special way to make your wedding ceremony completely unique!
I offer micro weddings, massive weddings, elopements and everything in between. Whatever your vision is for your day let’s make it happen.
Why choose Yvonne for your wedding?
I bring the fun into every ceremony I write, while also giving you the reassurance of a professional and experienced celebrant. You can relax knowing your ceremony is in safe hands. I am passionate about creating space for couples to celebrate their love in ways that are unique and special to them.
Unfortunately Yvonne Cassidy Weddings is not available for Naming Ceremonies.
Renewal of Vows
Ready to love each other all over again? Then a renewal ceremony is a fun way to reaffirm those vows made 10, 20 or however many years ago! Or maybe you have come through challenging times and want to celebrate coming out the other side. Why not, any reason to celebrate is a good reason!
Vow renewals can be as detailed as a full wedding ceremony, or really stripped back to what the at the heart of it all, your love and commitment to each other. By working together we can create a ceremony to celebrate the story so far, and look forward to the story ahead!
Why choose Yvonne for your renewal of vows?
I am an experienced Celebrant and passionate about creating space for people to celebrate life and love.
Unfortunately Yvonne Cassidy Weddings is not available for Funerals.

It’s not often that the most memorable part of a wedding for the guests is the ceremony, but Yvonne made our ceremony an exception. We planned our wedding from America and having a good celebrant was incredibly important to us. We wanted someone who could capture us, our love, our story and how special and intimate our destination wedding was for us and our guests – Yvonne did that and more. We met with Yvonne a few times before we traveled to Ireland; she spent time getting to know us and our relationship – and eventually encapsulated all of our favorite things about each other into her ceremony script. Since we aren’t from Ireland, she helped us come up with some special inclusions for our ceremony that were both Irish and “us.” We had the traditional hand fasting ceremony, and a less typical “mead ceremony” where we took shots of mead with our 45 guests! We cannot say enough good things about Yvonne – she cares about her clients and she has a way with words that will capture your love, no matter what. We laughed, we cried, we celebrated and we couldn’t have done it without her. Yvonne – thank you so much for making the most important part of our day one of the best parts. You played a massive part in making our day a dream come true and we are incredibly grateful!

It was a pleasure to have Yvonne as our celebrant for our wedding in June 2022. She made the zoom meeting very easy and casual. She was very helpful and imaginative with lovely ideas to include our children during the ceremony. The ceremony was relaxed and pleasant and many commented on how well it was put together and delivered. Highly recommended.

My husband (!) and I can’t say enough amazing things about Yvonne and how special she made our day. We heard from an extraordinary amount of guests that Yvonne officiated the most personal, touching, and entertaining ceremony they had ever attended. Yvonne put some much time, thought, and effort into getting to know us as a couple and made everything feel so personal. She did such justice to our story and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. We were able to pick and choose the elements that mattered the most to us and Yvonne offered thoughtful suggestions on how to make the day more special. She was responsive, kind, and organized. I recommend her wholeheartedly and hope that other couples (and their guests) get to experience such a wonderful memory on their wedding day!
