Welcome,

A unique and personal ceremony is the centre piece of your memorable wedding day.

As a HSE Registered Solemniser I can legally marry you, on the day and venue of your choice. I love the privilege of creating ceremony and together we will choose the readings, reflections and rituals, that best represent you and your partner.

As an ordained non-denominational One Spirit Minister I serve people of all faiths and none - that is inclusive of gender, sexual orientation and all cultures, bringing a richness of experience and empathy to my role as Celebrant.

Take the stress out of the planning and know that you are "in a safe pair of hands."

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I offer a free telephone consultation in the first instance and will be delighted to talk and guide you through the various options that best reflect you and your partner's values. I will co-create a beautiful, memorable, ceremony with readings, music, participation of your friends/family members, that is unique and personal to you both.

Testimonials:

 “We wanted to have a non-religious ceremony with friends and family from disparate traditions. Margaret was the person we turned to in helping us plan and officiate on our special day. She had some wonderful suggestions around structuring our ceremony and had ideas that we weaved in, including a hand-fasting. We could not have had a better person to officiate: she was so calm, engaged and engaging. Every one of our guests felt that they were party to a unique event and many commented on how Margaret facilitated the co-construction of a celebration which spoke of our cultural heritage, Irish and Pakistani, which south to find common ground. She brought a sense of calm, spirituality and unity amongst us all and these memories will be cherished throughout our lives.” -Dr. L.L. & H.S.

“When we approached Margaret we had no idea what kind of ceremony we wanted except that we wanted to be married at Christmas! Over a number of meetings and emails our ceremony evolved. It was a reflection of us both – our love of family, travel, our love of nature, football.  Our wedding ceremony is something none of us will ever forget. The Handfasting, (tying of the knot by my mother), the Stone ceremony (stones blessed by our guests and gathered and brought to the hearth by our niece, the Remembering poem spoken by a Grandmother, we could go on. Each piece of our unique ceremony was beautifully woven together by Margaret into the perfect ceremony.  We are eternally grateful to her for giving us the best of memories. Thank you.” -Lauren and Simon

We had a small wedding in September in the Iveagh Gardens Hotel in Dublin. Margaret was absolutely brilliant in helping us work through how the Ceremony should be structured and had lovely ideas for the proceedings, potential readings, placement of music etc which really helped us as we had no idea where to start. We had a few calls with Margaret and then met in person to talk through how it would all work in practice. Margaret was so organised and reassuring as we were both quite nervous but we knew we were in safe hands. Our guests all commented that it was the nicest Ceremony they had ever attended and how lovely, kind, and calm Margaret was. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Margaret and I would highly recommend her to add that special touch to your special day

Planning a wedding during Covid-19 maybe wasn't the easiest time, but there was one constant in our planning that gave us both a great sense of calm and serenity, and that was Margaret. Thorough, Kind and Enchanting. From the offset, Margaret shown a deep understanding of planning and creating a unique and personal ceremony. Always available and prompt to reply I would not hesitate to recommend Margaret to anyone. We are incredibly grateful for all she has done for us and are delighted to have had her part of our special day as well.

In a very stressful turn of events my husband and I found ourselves in the position of needing a new registrar a few days before our wedding due to new Covid-19 restrictions. What could have been a very trying time was quickly turned around when Margaret came to our rescue and agreed to do our ceremony. From our first call with her she was very calming, kind and professional. She quickly made us feel reassured and was able to tell us everything we needed to know to help us organise all of the legal bits. On the day she delivered the ceremony beautifully, making it feel special for us while also keeping our guests engaged. I couldn't recommend Margaret more, and thank you very much for everything you did to help us in our time of need! Thanks again, Margaret

Margaret was the perfect celebrant for us. We cannot recommend her more highly. Even in the weeks and months before the big event, she was a calming and assured presence. Knowing that we were in a safe pair of hands actually took a huge amount of the stress out of the planning process. My partner and I wanted an alternative experience to the standard church wedding as we are not very religious. We wanted a warm, intimate ceremony devoid of stuffiness and biblical references. Margaret helped us craft our own personalised script. We found her templates gave us a good starting point and we added our own content under her guidance. This allowed us to involve family and friends in the day which made it so special. Throughout the ceremony itself, she spoke eloquently and had the right balance of solemnity and humour. While we wanted everyone present to have fun, we also didn’t want it to turn into a party too soon. It’s an important life event and Margaret marked the occasion really well. I actually expected to be more nervous on the day but knowing that we had a good plan in place allowed us both to relax and enjoy it. A couple of our guests actually booked her since our wedding.
