Firstly, congratulations on your engagement! 

Rhona Cullinan has been working in the Wedding Industry for over 30 years. As an award winning professional makeup artist I have been at the morning of thousands of weddings and I feel like I have never worked a day in my life! I love weddings and as an Independent Celebrant with the Irish Institute of Celebrants, I am very proud to be able to bring two peoples love stories together in a ceremony that I will write and perform.

So, with this type of ceremony I can help you create the most personalised, individual, bespoke wedding tailored to suit both your styles and your personalities. It will revolve completely around your love story! My ceremonies have the added advantage in that your wedding can be performed indoor or outdoor with no restrictions whatsoever and you can include religious prayers or songs if preferred, poetry, love poems or just keeping it simple – It’s your wedding – it’s your choice! We can also include rituals of your choice including hand fasting, sand ceremonies to name a few.

You can choose your favourite place to get married– everything can be tailored to suit you and the possibilities are endless. I also speak Spanish so if you would like a bilingual ceremony or even a few words of Spanish included, I would be delighted to do this.

At present Independent Celebrants are not able to solemnise a wedding on the day. You would be required to complete the legal requirements with 2 witnesses before the wedding date – leaving you free to enjoy the wedding of your dreams on the big day. For more info click here -

So what happens next....

Simply contact me, I can check availability for your desired date and I'll send you all the information about my packages and all your legal requirements. We then arrange a meet up either in person or by Skype to go through all of the details for the ceremony which I will then create and perfect until you have the wedding of your dreams.

I am also able to offer a makeup package for the morning of the wedding - I will send you all the details on request

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask!

Look forward to hearing from you

I would happily recommend Rhona to anyone that is looking for wedding make-up. Rhona was very accommodating and understanding when we had to change our wedding date twice during the pandemic. She was so prepared and calm on the wedding morning, doing make-up for the bride, four bridesmaids and the mother of the bride single-handedly. Despite each of the women having different requests etc., Rhona worked with each of us and we were all delighted with the results. Rhona uses very high-quality products that lasted all day and looked very well in photographs etc. Thanks a million Rhona.

Rhona helped us to create the most wonderful personalised ceremony. It was great start to our day and her level of professionalism and her ability to speak with emotion and tell our story made it a memorable and unique experience for all. The ceremony was very important to us and it far surpassed our expectations. I would highly recommend Rhona as a celebrant she helped make our day extra special.

I could not recommend Rhona enough as a wedding celebrant. From our very first meeting with her we knew we picked the right person. Every detail that went into planning the ceremony was tailored specifically to us. We had a small ceremony of just 14 people and she brought so much love and joy into the room between us all. If you are looking for an intimate and emotional (in a good way!) ceremony look no further. We couldn’t be happier with how our day went.

We booked Rhona for makeup and celebrant just before the pandemic hit having met her at a wedding show. Finally we had our day after 1 postponement, Rhona was unbelievable. From the moment we met her to the morning of the wedding she was nothing but helpful. She made our ceremony so personal and all of our guests were raving about how it was just about us and our story, and also an added bit of humour. From a makeup perspective, we were flawless! I barely topped up my face other than Rhona topping me up before the ceremony and it lasted all day and into the night! I cannot recommend Rhona enough, if you want a personalised and totally unique wedding she's your woman! Can't thank her enough she made our day so special.

I booked Rhona as my make up artist for my wedding in May this year, for myself, my mum and my five bridesmaids. The morning went so smoothly, Rhona is so professional and friendly. Rhona listened to what myself and my bridesmaids wanted and she done a brilliant job, we all looked and felt beautiful and I loved that I couldn’t feel the false eyelashes. Would definitely recommend Rhona. Thank you so much x

I booked Rhona as my make up artist for my wedding in May this year, for myself, my mum and my four bridesmaids. The morning went so smoothly, Rhona is so calm, and professional, it was a pleasure having her do the make-up. We are all 40+ (except one) and I think she was an excellent choice for this age group. The makeup didn't look heavy , it was glowy/quite natural, it was stunning, and her lashes are the nicest I've ever used. Would definitely recommend Rhona to any future brides.

Rhona made our day! From our first initial conversation to the wedding day itself her professionalism and warm approach was amazing. We were so happy and would highly recommend to friends and family. We availed of both her Celebrants and Makeup services and everyone was so happy with the results. The ceremony was so personal, fun and filled with laughter. Thanks again for making our day amazing.

We had our Commitment Ceremony on the 13th August 2020. Rhona was fantastic and great to deal with. We had to reschedule our original wedding to next year. It was lovely to celebrate what should have been our day. Rhona was brilliant. I can’t recommend her enough

If you’re getting married, Rhona has to be your go to for make up. I accidentally booked the wrong date for my make up trial and completely missed it but Rhona rescheduled it without any issues. On the day, It was like having a wedding planner and videographer as well as a make up artist, It wouldn’t have gone nearly as well without Rhona. She made sure everyone was getting ready on time and helped me fix my dress and the make up was absolutely perfect and lasted all night.

Rhona is simply amazing as a person, a celebrant and make artist, She had 7 people for makeup the morning of the wedding, the bride was first to be ready and the makeup was perfect my wife loved it, said it was the best she ever had done, She prepared a ceremony that was beautiful and touching to us all, She even organised sand from Clare near Cliffs of Moher as part of our sand ceremony which is a place my wife and I really love. Her communication was excellent from the start especially as we were arranging from Australia and we only met her on our wedding day. We highly recommend Rhona and her services she was just fantastic along with her assistant, very relaxing and friendly would put any bride at ease on the big day. Thank you Rhona we were delighted with everything.

We got married on 21-12 last year and Rhona came to our venue in Waterford Castle to take care of the bridal party’s makeup. Wow what a fabulous job she did, I really cannot recommend her enough. She was early (no stress there), calming, good-humoured, full of really helpful advice and professional and just so amazingly talented and skillful at what she does. When I show photos of the day, everyone comments on my beautiful makeup and my bridesmaids. Rhona is worth every penny and such great value for money. Aideen

Everything about Rhona and her work as our celebrant was absolutely next level!! We not only gave her an impossible task of liaising from the other side of the globe, we done it all in two weeks! Rhona went above and beyond to make sure our magical day, including the bride was perfect! Rhona was personal and professional doing in her research for the ceremony getting to know us both and including lyrics from our favourite bands. I would recommend Rhona and her services to anyone looking to be treated with the personal touch that Rhona provides in her business

I chose Rhona to be our makeup artist as she had been the makeup artist of 4 of my friends previously. I could not say enough kind things about Rhona. She is fantastically relaxed and easy going. Nothing is too much to ask. She made our morning very easy! 5 adults and 4 little girls to cater for and she did it with such ease that we all enjoyed our experience and felt absolutely amazing after. Her makeup style (that I have admired for years) is very natural while also being stunningly beautiful. The kids felt like absolute princesses and glowed with happiness after she was finished with them. My makeup was exactly what I had imagined but not only that but it lasted me perfectly for two days! Rhona is very responsive to email and also text. Her friendly manner and chatty nature make the whole experience such a pleasure. Delighted she was available for my big day. Would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything Rhona.

Rhona is just super. We, the bridal party, had somewhat different wants for our makeup, and Rhona did such a lovely job with every single one of us, including my mother who shone on the day. I have rarely felt so beautiful in my life. In fact I have since bought many of the products used to try and recreate the look! Thank you for not just your glorious skills in makeup artistry Rhona, but also for your kindness and calming effect on such a special day.
