I am Rev. Barbara Allen (Rev. Babs).  I am an Interfaith Minister (strictly non-denominational), Celebrant and Legal Solemniser of Weddings in Ireland. 

My aim is to create for you a one-of-a-kind Wedding Ceremony which reflects your personalities, both as individuals, and as a couple.  Together we will use Rituals, Music, Readings, Poetry as I unfold your story of Love,  to design the perfect, personalised Wedding Ceremony, which will be memorable and will always hold a significant place in your hearts.  I will guide you through the legal formalities which apply in Ireland.   I will liaise with the venue, and I will ensure that the Ceremony runs smoothly and effortlessly. 

On the Day, the Ceremony will be professionally held by me, in an atmosphere of love and joyfulness, which is entirely stress-free.  I will meet with you regularly, as we work together, and I will always be available to answer any questions. Creating Wedding Ceremonies and helping couples to  plan the perfect Ceremony for them, is my passion.  I absolutely love it!   Together, we will build a bond of mutual trust, as we navigate this wonderful time in your lives - the planning will be fun and inclusive. 

 I look forward to working with you, and to meeting you both.

I knew nothing about civil ceremonies before talking to Barbara. She guided us in choosing the perfect ceremony for our family. Our wedding was beautifully romantic.Barbara was a dream to work with, even settling guests before I arrived. We even had a guest have a change of heart on the idea of marriage after witnessing how intimate and personal our wedding ceremony was.I highly recommend Barbara for any special occasion you need to celebrate.

We are so thankful that we found Rev Barbara Allen's website. The lovely bubbly way she came across was exactly what we wanted. And we were not disappointed Rev Barbara puts you at ease and helps to make a personal ceremony. Everyone commented on how lovely and personal our wedding was. We made the right decision in picking our celebrant and would highly recommend Rev Babs to everyone looking for a celebrant who will make them feel special and at ease.

Elva and Aidan, it was so lovely to share your Wedding Day. I feel so blessed to do what I love and to meet such wonderful people like you both along the way. Elva, you looked so beautiful and all of us could not be immune to the great joy you positively radiated as you arrived - and Aidan, such a lovely man - you truly "deserve" each other. I wish you love and joy in abundance as you enjoy married life xx Rev Babs

We would highly recommend Rev Barbara Allen. From the start she was available, helpful and supportive. Ensuring that we completed all paper work in time and that everything was in place for our wedding ceremony. Rev babs went above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful ceremony that was also very personal to us. Thanks again. We were lucky to have you with us on the day.

And what a beautiful day we had, Leanne and Jonathan, out in the gardens with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky. It was a pleasure and an honour to share your Wedding Day. You made planning and creating your ceremony such an enjoyable experience for me. I am grateful to you both for allowing me to do what I love, and I wish you both every happiness and a loving and joyful life together xx Rev Babs

I could not recommend Barbara enough. Having such open communication and flexibility with what we wanted from our day. Together we created a beautiful ceremony, and included a couple of rituals Barbara had suggested, and it could not have been more perfect.
Response from Rev Barbara Allen - Celebrant and Solemniser
It was a wonderful Day, Fiona and Shaun. Having had to postpone like so many others, you had your Wedding celebrations on a later date at an alternative venue - and it was perfect. Intimate, loving, personal and memorable. It was my great joy to get to know you and your family.

Barbara was absolutely amazing! She made our day so personal and we felt so special. It was beautiful and dealing with her prior to the wedding was so easy and hassle free. All the guests were asking me about her as rhey all thought she was fantastic. The way she spoke to us and about us made us feel amazing. I couldnt imagine a better person for that role!
Response from Rev Barbara Allen - Celebrant and Solemniser
What a wonderful day, holding your ceremony out under the trees. I also had the opportunity to learn some Polish to greet your guests. A real honour and privilege for me. Thanks for choosing me. Rev. Babs
