We are so glad we chose Daragh as our celebrant. He did an amazing at our wedding. We could not have imagined the ceremony being quite as lovely as it was. So many of our guests commented all day long on how wonderfully talented Daragh is at his job and how the ceremony was so personal to who we are as a couple. We mentioned him in our thank yous during the speeches and he got a huge round of applause. Daragh made the entire process of choosing a celebrant, booking him for the day, meeting up, picking the parts of the ceremony so easy and then he blew us away on the day. We will treasure the memories of the ceremony and we thank Daragh sincerely for that.

Daragh performed the wedding ceremony for my husband and I. He did such an amazing job!! We are from the U.S. and planned a destination wedding in Ireland, so we really didn’t know what we were doing and didn’t meet any of our suppliers until the day of the wedding, and even still, Daragh managed to make the whole ceremony so personal. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how personal it was. We also had a change in our ceremony music last minute, and Daragh was super laid back and flexible. He was so easy to work with and I was so impressed with the result! I highly recommend him for your wedding ceremony! You will have no stress working with Daragh!

Hi Darragh, I hope you are keeping well. I just wanted to thank you and to share the gratitude towards how special and perfect you made our day. Cormac and I were always apprehensive about the oppinions of others with not having our ceremony in a church or as what it should traditionally look like. The feedback from everyone single person of how beautiful and personalised the cermoney was has actually blown us away. Normally it's mostly the band or the food people speak about. We are so grateful that it's the ceremony people are still talking about, this means so much to us as the band or food was never going to reflect our love/ relationship on our wedding day. Everyone has been signing your praises and mentioning this being the best wedding ceremony ever attended and by all accounts everyone was in tears by the end of the ceremony. I hope we will cross paths again, we will be forever grateful. Please feel free to use this on any platform, we would love for as many couples to feel the way we do, and have as good as a day as we did. KR, Mr & Mrs Dillane ??

Daragh was an AMAZING celebrant, the energy and atmosphere he brought to our ceremony was indescribable!!! So far over and above any other celebrant I've ever seen, and an utter gentleman on top of that. Daragh thank you for making our day so special ????

When we contacted Daragh initially and told him about the surprise wedding we were intending to have, we were immediately put at ease - Daragh had carried out a surprise wedding before - happy days! But the best was yet to come from Daragh! We met Daragh on zoom initially and we knew immediately he was the celebrant for us. Daragh came to our home a number of weeks prior to the wedding to find out all about us and to hear our story. In the run up to the day of the wedding we had a quick catch up about how the surprise aspect was going to work! The day of the wedding came and Daragh arrived in plenty of time. He went into announce that our 'engagement party' was actually a wedding and when I say the room was electric when I walked in is an understatement. Daragh did such an amazing job and really did set up our day with his amazing personality and story telling ability to be the best wedding we could have asked for. We'll always remember you Daragh and how special you made not only us but everyone in that room feel - a huge thanks to you Daragh.

Daragh is top class!! He came up to meet us a couple of months before the ceremony which gave him the chance to get to know us. That meeting was invaluable, as Daragh took that and delivered a really personal ceremony with stories about the two of us as if he knew us for years. Ceremony was casual with some great rituals like the wine ceremony, exactly what we asked for. Guest were even raving about Daragh. Couldn’t recommend Daragh enough, give him a buzz and you’ll see what I mean after a few minutes in the phone.

Daragh made the day so special with his energy and enthusiasm. Easy going, relaxed and a great choice if you want to include a bit of humour in your ceremony. I highly recommend.

It was such a pleasure to have Daragh as our celebrant. He made the ceremony very personal and he took the time and effort to get to know use both. Daragh made the preparations so easy and was always so helpful with any queries that we had. We would highly recommend Daragh to be a celebrant. Our guests also spoke very highly of him. Thanks Daragh. Niall and Emma

We had originally planned on a church wedding but no priest would do new years day for us. I'm a firm believer in everything happens for a reason and this was definitely one of those times! Daragh contacted us straight away and I knew he was the man for the job. Just before the wedding we thought we might have to drop to 6 from 25 and Daragh was on the phone to us straight and other suppliers to put us at ease (we luckily had the 25) He was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel so special from incorporating our love of liverpool to including our 2 boys who loved every minute of the ceremony. It was short and sweet, just what we wanted and everyone commented on what a good job Daragh did. I have already and would recommend him to a friend!

Well what can I say. A covid couple who had been challenged hard and decided to change from church to Cival with only 8 weeks to plan a new date. From the moment I mailed looking to see if Daragh was available to the day he graced us with his blessing he was amazing. So helpful so happy and so comforting in these strange times. Our day couldn’t of been any more amazing and we will be forever thankful.

We would highly recommend Daragh for your special day. We wanted a laid back ceremony that was about us and that is exactly what Daragh did. From the planning stages right through to the big day he was always ready to answer any questions and make changes to the ceremony to better suit us. He knew the whole ceremony off by heart and it made our ceremony feel so personal. Guests even thought that he was a family friend he knew so much about us. He made our day so special and so relaxed. We are so thankful to have found him and glad that he was a part of our amazing day. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant.

We had Daragh as our wedding planner for our wedding on the 15th December 2018. I can honestly say that Daragh was one of the nicest, professional, organised and understanding people we encountered during the process of organising our wedding. He was diligent from the beginning, realistic and ensured we stuck to our budget. He was always available for phone calls and meetings when needed, which was especially important for us as we were planning our big day from London. He ensured we negotiated the best deal possible with our hotel and even went to extra mile in helping me choose my dress! Daragh made every effort to ensure we were happy with the progress of events and particularly on the day of the wedding he made sure we did not have to stress about anything. He did a fantastic job making sure everything ran smoothly, including giving us a detailed schedule of the timing of the day itself. He helped us to make important decisions, deciding on things we needed to have and things we did not need to have on the day. He also did a fantastic job as MC at our reception. We honestly could not recommend him enough!

We organised our wedding in Meath from London and Daragh was a massive help to us. As we hadn't gone down the hotel route for our venue it was great to have him look after the subtleties like PA systems, transport and bar staffing as well as coordinating all our other vendors in the run up to the wedding and on the day. He had lots of helpful suggestions on how to get our ideas to work. We would have been lost without him, we would definitely recommend.

We had a surprise wedding last weekend. We invited our guests to our engagement party and with Daraghs help turned it into our dream wedding. It took huge amounts of flexibility and foresight for Daragh to make everything happen when we hoped and that he did in spades. Watch the video on "weddings by dd" to see professionalism meet humanism. Thank you so much from an extremely grateful and happy couple. Liz & Dougie

Our wedding ceremony took place at St. Oliver Plunkett's Church Ruins and the reception was at Loughcrew House Estate. We came from the USA, NYC specifically. Daragh was quick to respond, via email and setting up calls, which was important to us, especially being from NYC where we want things done yesterday. We already had a wedding vision in mind, but Daragh was extremely helpful and gave great advice when it came to the normal wedding details, of which we did not have much experience or knowledge. Our wedding was unconventional due to the time of the ceremony being later in the evening. Daragh really went out of his way for us- picking us up from Dublin and driving us to see the wedding venue. We also had buses transporting people from Dublin and different hotels to the wedding venue. Daragh stayed until 3:00 am to make sure people found the right buses when he was scheduled to leave at 10:00 pm! He's easy going, so he didn't stress us out at all, but at the same time, he's in control of all of the various parts he's orchestrating. We couldn't have done it without him!

On the 31st of Aug we got married at what was described by our guests as one of the best Weddings they have ever been to. This wouldn't have been possible without the help, guidance and management of Rainbow Weddings. To say Daragh went above and beyond is an understatement, every granular aspect of the plan for the day was scrutinised and planned, and of course he was there to ensure everything ran smoothly. We will never forget our Wedding day, and give our sincerest thanks to Daragh for making sure it was perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rainbow Weddings to anyone.

Daragh helped to organise our wedding in July this year, and thanks to his skills and dedication the day went like a dream. He was helpful and obliging right from day one, a pleasure to deal with, and had some great tips and advice for us. On the day he worked tirelessly to make sure everyone was well looked after from start to finish. He's a true professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding.

We planned on having a relaxed outdoors wedding in Rosedale House. Daragh Doyle was superb. He took all the hassles of co-ordinating the day away. We found Daragh to be highly organised, professional, an excellent communicator and an absolute gent to deal with. In the run up to the wedding his professionalism, attention to detail and commitment to make our day really special took away any fears for how it was all going to run on the day. We could not have had such a fantastic day without Daragh. We would not hesitate to recommend Daragh. From start to finish and execution on the day he was absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much Daragh, you promised to leave no stone unturned and you certainly delivered on that promise. Barry & Niamh

Daragh Doyle from Rainbow weddings planned and conducted our wedding ceremony with exceptional professionalism and commitment, to the very final detail. No stone was left unturned to ensure our very special day went as smoothly as possible. From start to finish , he personally made us feel so relaxed knowing that everything was under control. We would never have managed the degree of detail that he undertook. He was like a family member , everyone loved him and felt his strength and energy throughout the whole time . We cannot thank Daragh and his team at Rainbow Weddings enough.

Anne & Grainne you will always go down as my first destination Wedding in Spain. It was such an exciting week in the lead up to your wedding and the day its self in the splendid Spanish heat was amazing! Also my first wedding where as well as being the planner I was also the Wedding Celebrant, a massively rewarding experience for me! Wishing you a wonderful future in Spain. DD

Daragh planned our wedding over Easter 2018 and I cannot recommend him highly enough! I found Daragh to be highly organised, professional, detail oriented, an excellent communicator but above all else an absolute pleasure to deal with. He worked tirelessly for months in the run up to our wedding and we will be forever grateful for all he did for us. Daragh said he would leave no stone unturned in planning our wedding and he was true to his word. All of our guests commented on how amazing they found him to be. Thank you so much Daragh!

Daragh took all the stresses away, he was organised and efficient. He managed every thing and saved us from all the difficulties ...and there were difficulties and he smoothed them over, and made every thing great. It was great to know that if any thing went wrong there was someone who was going to fix it. Once we had Daragh in place we didn't have to worry about any thing. He made our day wonderful.

We went to Daragh late in the game when preparing the wedding ourselves became too stressful with increasing difficulties. He came and removed the stress, he worked with all the suppliers we had worked with, had people he could work with if there was anything missing, smoothed any difficulties with suppliers, and was a pleasure to work with. He was able to manage the time pressures, family, venue and all other issues in a way that meant our day went entirely smoothly and is still (to be a cliché) one of the best days of our lives. He made what was becoming a stress into such a pleasure. He is worth every penny. We should have gone to him earlier. Highly recommended.

Daniel & Eoin you will always go down as the first couple to engage my services, you contacted me just after I launched the business, and gave me my first big break, which I will always remember!

Rainbow Weddings and Daragh Doyle took all the worry and stress away from my son and his fiance's wedding. They were overseas and coming back to Ireland for their wedding. That is not easy, as someone experienced and calm really needs to be available to troubleshoot, link with the couple to make sure it all is as they want, and to make helpful suggestions to make the day (or weekend!) go as well as possible. Daragh dealt with the venue issues which inevitably arose with professionalism and good humor and I can only say that if you need a good wedding coordinator or planner Daragh should be first on the list.
Response from Daragh Doyle Celebrant & Registered Solemniser
Davida you were an absolute pleasure to deal with, and it was great to have a local contact, considering the boys were living abroad. You had a great sense of humour and you were always fun to deal with. All the best for the future.
