About Me

Professional Public Speaker, trained to the highest standard. I am fully insured and accredited by the Irish Institute of Celebrants. I have over 10 years experience in delivering events and my specialty is to cater for your needs. I entered into this industry because I found there was a lack of variety and choices for weddings and events if you didn't want the standard church wedding or share a baptism with six babies at a time. Or with a priest that doesn't know me and has an agenda to preach. My only agenda is freedom of choice, Freedom to choose where you want to marry the person that you love, at a time of your choosing. A service that says something about you and your loved ones and not some generic, conveyor belt system that is the same for thousands of people.

I feel my role is to help you create an event to remember, a personalized service to that speaks to your personality and create that atmosphere to really engage your friends, family, colleagues. Even if you don't know what that is yet, I will guide you through the process of really understanding what suits you and your audience. There are no do-overs, so I want to help you make the most of your wedding or event for that wow factor.

Having experience with hotels and venues nationwide and Internationally, I have plenty of industry knowledge and contacts to help make your event easier to navigate. I am Based in Naas, Kildare and within easy reach of Dublin & Wicklow but happy to travel.

Choosing Your Venue

Choosing the perfect location for your special day can be a minefield. Do you want indoor or outdoor? Does it have to be a hotel, a historic venue or restaurant to host? Getting married or renewing your vows on the Cliffs of Moher might seem romantic but the realities in Ireland can be somewhat different. If you decide on an outdoor scenic location then there are some things you may want to consider:

What protection can you provide in case the weather isn't great?
High winds or rain might put a dampener on your day. Do you have a plan B?

Will your guests be able to hear over gushing waterfalls?
Do you need to advise guests to bring rain gear from the spray or advise on footwear?

If its a beach wedding, will the tide and time be a factor to your event?
The last thing you want is to miss the water or worse yet, swamp your guests with incoming waves.

Do you need permission from the Local Authority or OPW?
Places like the Botanical Gardens don't allow any gatherings of this kind. Check who looks after the location and if permission is needed to enter. Consider access issues for older persons, disability access, rocky beaches might pose a hazard for all including children. Check what else is on that day. Are you sharing your location with a festival or other weddings at the same time? Best to check in advance so you don't lose your guests to another event or have everyone late due to traffic restrictions.

One thing is for sure you should visit in person in daylight before you book to get a real feel of the place whether that's outdoor or indoor.
